One Man's Education is Another Man's Marxist Brainwash



Dreams from the LORD 2011-2017
30 January 2017
Last night I had a dream where I saw the words “Education Association” and “Demonic”.
I believe this dream is a warning about public education and teacher’s unions in the United States (which is no surprise).  I believe that there are many private schools that are also conformed to the world system.  I have heard that Whitman College in Walla Walla, Washington is very anti-Christian.  At Whitman College, all students are required to read a book entitled Why I am not a Christian by Bertrand Russell.  I am very grateful that so many Christian families home school their children.
One man’s education is another man’s Marxist brainwash.

Cultural Marxism:

"The gradual process of destroying all traditions, languages, religions, individuality, government, family, law and order in order to re-assemble society in the future as a communist utopia.  This utopia will have no notion of gender, traditions, morality, God or even family or the state."

--Urban Dictionary  


"You must understand. The leading Bolsheviks who took over Russia were not Russians. They hated Russians. They hated Christians. Driven by ethnic hatred they tortured & slaughtered millions of Russians without a shred of human remorse. The October Revolution was not what you call in America the 'Russian Revolution.' It was an invasion & conquest over the Russian people. More of my countrymen suffered horrific crimes at their bloodstained hands than any people or nation ever suffered in the entirety of human history. It cannot be understated. Bolshevism was the greatest human slaughter of all time. The fact that most of the world is ignorant of this reality is proof that the global media itself is in the hands of the perpetrators."
--Alexander Solzhenitsyn (1918-2008)


"The road to hell is paved with Ivy League degrees."

--Thomas Sowell


"Education doesn't make you smarter."

Veronika West: A Vision of Britain and the United States


This is from the blog Richard's Watch:
Posted 26 Jan on UK Prophetic Words:
TODAY I HAVE BEEN LED TO PRAY FOR PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP AND PRIME MINISTER THERESA MAY AS THEY PLAN TO MEET TOGETHER TOMORROW. WATCH! GOD IS DOING NEW THING IN THIS HOUR!!
Some of you will remember this powerful Word God gave me last Year July concerning the United Kingdom and the United States of America coming together in great purpose in the future. I believe we are now beginning to see the fulfilment of this Word…!
5th July 2016.
A WORD FOR AMERICA AND THE UNITED KINGDOM; THE TWO SHALL BECOME ONE!
“A MIGHTY RIVER OF GOLD AND SILVER; THE POWER OF GLORY AND REDEMPTION IS SHIFTING AND RESHAPING THE NATIONS IN THIS HOUR “!
Today while praying for the Nations, suddenly a very powerful vision opened up before me where I saw a large gold hand coming out of the Nation of America, I watched closely as the gold hand reached up high into the heavens.
Then suddenly I saw a large silver hand coming out of the United Kingdom and it too reached up high into the heavens, I watched intently as the silver hand of the United Kingdom and the gold hand of America came together and began to shake hands and as the two hands shook, I felt the earth tremble and the ground beneath my feet began to move and shift.
Then suddenly out of heavens came a third large hand, but it was a hand of blazing fire, I watched as the hand of fire came to rest upon the shaking hands of silver and gold, Suddenly the blazing hand of fire intensified in heat causing the hand of silver and the hand of gold to melt, I watched closely as the two precious metals melted into one another forming one mighty river of molten gold and silver.
And then I heard these words, “UNITY AND FREEDOM, GLORY AND REDEMPTION”
Then I watched as the river moved with great force and in great power, I watched as the river of gold and silver suddenly turned and broke forth upon the Nations of the earth and wherever the river of gold and silver flowed the mighty waters rose causing the landscape to be changed and transformed, then I watched closely as great fires broke out upon these Nations, the blazing fires of purification and revival, fires that will not be quenched but will only burn brighter and brighter.
Then suddenly out of the heavens I heard these words, “WATCH! FOR THE NATION OF AMERICA AND THE UNITED KINGDOM SHALL SHAKE HANDS AND THE TWO SHALL FORM A STRONG ALLIANCE AND THE TWO SHALL BECOME ONE IN PURPOSE, ONE IN VISION AND ONE IN GREAT VICTORY.
WATCH! FOR THE RIVER OF MY GLORY AND REDEMPTION SHALL NOW FLOW FORTH UPON THE NATIONS CAUSING A TIDAL WAVE OF TRANSFORMATION AND CHANGE, FOR EVEN IN THIS HOUR BELOVED THE POWER OF MY GLORY AND REDEMPTION IS SHIFTING AND RESHAPING THE LANDSCAPE OF THESE GREAT NATIONS AND THE FIRES OF PURIFICATION AND REVIVAL SHALL BURN, BURN, BURN”, says God.

Nationhood versus Nationalism



This is from the blog Richard's Watch:

Dave Chapman on Nationhood


NATIONHOOD
It seems to me that too many Christians are afraid of standing up for our – or theirs, as the case maybe – Country. “We don’t like to get involved with politics”, we may hear, or “we are citizens of heaven, so therefore do not engage on that level”, for instance.
However, whilst ‘being political’ has to do with government and its desired nature, owning Nationhood I believe, is something quite different.  Getting involved with which ‘party’ runs, rules, or governs our own Nation does involve being ‘political’, or having a ‘preferred party’ bias.  But being involved with defending our own Government from other Governments, so that we make our independent and individual choices, is not ‘political’ in the true meaning of the word.  That is purely standing up for our own Nation – which is also quite different from ‘Nationalism’.
Yet, there is a fine line between standing up for our ‘Nation’, and ‘Nationalism’.  Here for instance, are the online dictionary definitions to help :-
Nationhood, is described as:-
“the fact or status of being a nation;  national identity, culture or economic life”. (Oxford dictionary, online)
“the state of being an independent nation”.  (Websters Dictionary, online)
“Nationhood is the state of being a nation, or a large group of people united by common language, culture or economic life”. (Your Dictionary, online)
“the state or quality of having status as a separate and independent nation“:(Dictionary.com)
Whereas ‘Nationalism’ is described as:-
“loyalty and devotion to a nation; especially :  a sense of national consciousness (see consciousness 1c) exalting one nation above all others and placing primary emphasis on promotion of its culture and interests as opposed to those of other nations or supranational groups” (Merriam-Websters Dict, online)
ideology based on the premise that the individual’s loyalty and devotion to the nation-state surpass other individual or group interests”. (Britannica Encyclopedia, online).
So we can see from these definitions that being a Nation, or having Nationhood, is a fact of life.  It is a state of being as a people, and operating as an independent ‘mass’ of people from other nations, whereas Nationalism is an ideology proceeding from a form of childish pride that “our nation is better than yours“!, and so displaying a superior attitude – with a desire to impose that culture and values on other Nations or peoples.
We can see that this latter approach is the root of an ‘Empire spirit’, which has manifested itself throughout the centuries over and over again.  Examples of this are Babylon, Medo-Persia, Greece, Roman, and of late the extremes of pre-War Germany, also Russia, and by the way, Britain, with its one time global Empire upon which there was no setting sun!, and finally since then, America, with its incursions into other Countries with a view to establishing democratic ideology.
Where Did The Idea, Or Fact Of Nationhood Come From?  
For this though, we need to go back a long way!  After the flood, from which just Noah, his wife and their three sons – with just one wife each(!) were saved, their families grew quickly.  Genesis 10 gives us a list of their children, grandchildren, and so on.  Quite a list that descended from Ham, Shem and Japheth.  In verse 32 of this chapter it concludes with “These are the clans of the sons of Noah, according to their genealogies, in their nations, and from these the nations spread abroad on the earth after the flood”.
At that time we understand they were speaking the same words and language (11 v 1), though as they migrated east they came to a place we now know as Babylon (Babel), in modern-day Iraq.  With the bitumen they found there, and the bricks they made under the baking sun, they conspired to build a city and a tower “with its top in the heavens”.  And, “let us make a name for ourselves”… “lest we be dispersed throughout the whole earth” .
Here we see their ambitions for themselves.  a) to build the world’s biggest tower! – sound familiar?  b) perhaps even to reach into the ‘spiritual realm’ by themselves – modern-day multi religions and the occult, and c), to become important (make a name for themselves) – Nationalism, which exalts man and not God.
In our Genesis account we read that the Lord came down to see the city and the tower they had built (v 5) and He said “Behold they are one people, they have all one language, and this is only the beginning of what they will do.  And nothing that they propose to do will be impossible for them”  “Come, let us go down and confuse their language so that they may not understand one another’s speech.  Therefore the place was called Babel”   “So the Lord dispersed them from there over all the face of the earth” (v 5-9).
They obviously therefore spread across the earth with those they could understand, and with their subsequent population growth, sooner or later became known as “Nations”, since they had their own language, culture, and governmental form, whatever way that was expressed – though in those days mostly in the form of a Chief or King with his counsel.  These things determined their identity.  Individual, yet valuable.
Setting Up and Establishing Nations and Boundaries
Moses, when speaking the words of a song included this phrase, “When the Most High gave to the Nations their inheritance, when He divided mankind, He fixed the borders of the people..”  (Deut 32 v 8)
Again, Paul in Athens stated “From one man (Adam), God made every nation of mankind to live on the face of the earth, having allotted periods and the boundaries of their dwelling place…”   (Acts 17 v 26)
This could not be clearer.  It was God who scattered the people across the face of the earth, gave them land they could inhabit and prosper in, and set up their boundaries as individual nations.  There is nowhere in the Scriptures – (of Truth, that is) – that He has revoked this set up, or removed the boundaries of the Nations.  They are there today.  As we have seen far too often in our lifetime, war breaks out when high-minded people, or Nations, try to change these boundaries causing terrible consequences, with much injury and death.
The Latecomer Nation!
After Moses spoke about the Nations and their inheritances, he spoke of Israel in more affectionate terms like this:-  “But the Lords portion is His people, Jacob (Israel) His allotted heritage” – Deut 32 v 9.   But, Moses own lament was that already – even before they entered the promised land – “they scoffed at the Rock of their salvation”… “they stirred God to anger with strange gods”…”you sacrificed to demons”… and, “you forgot the God who gave you birth” – (all in Deut 32).
Yet, still He caused them to enter the Land of Canaan at that time!  But, only because of His covenant to Abraham concerning the Land, and because of His promises to “bring them out of Egypt….to a good and pleasant land….to the place of the Canaanites”  Exodus 3 v 8.
The Lord also knew that following entering that Land they would depart from Him, resulting in Him having to kick them out of the Land into all the Nations of the earth, so, rather than make a Covenant over the Land just with a mere man, even though Abraham was a great man of faith, He left him out of the event – a blood covenant – so that Abraham slept through it, and instead God made it with Himself!  Then, He gave the Land to Abraham because of an unbreakable covenant concerning the Land, a matter on which Abraham needed re-assurances!  (Read Genesis 15 v 7 to 19).
And so Abraham’s descendants came to inherit the Land because of Gods promises.  It is precisely because of this specific Covenant, and His promises, that in this last century Israel have again become a Nation in the Land that God gave Abraham, on the very same one Moses spoke of and Joshua took, and again the same one Ezekiel spoke of much later as he became the mouth piece God used to prophesy “TO THE LAND ITSELF”!  (see Ezekiel 36 v 1, 4, 6).  Why to the land?  Because the land itself was bereft of its intended inhabitants once Gods people, as a result of their unfaithfulness to Him, including rejecting His own Son, had been sent to dwell among, and hounded among, the Nations of the earth.
Unbroken Covenants and Promises
But our God cannot break His Covenants, nor His promises, on which they are based, so that we see Israel are again established in the Land He gave them, as a Nation State.  He set their boundaries, which mark you, are much wider than they are at present!  It is an offence to the Lord that the Nations speak of them inhabiting some parts of the Land as ‘occupied land’.  It belongs to them, because God gave it to them, and though He kicked them out again almost 1900 years ago, they HAD to come back again because of Gods covenant and promises to them, and to the very Land itself!
And, this statement is not my lone view.  In an ‘only just come to light’ ruling in 2013 this is what an Appeal Court in Versaille, France ruled, over a dispute concerning the light rail construction in Israel:-
The Court of Appeal of Versailles ruled that Israel’s presence in Judea and Samaria is unequivocally legal under international law, dismissing a suit brought by the Palestinian Authority (PA) against Jerusalem’s light rail built by French companies Alstom and Veolia
To rule on the suit, the Court of Appeals had to determine the legal rights of Palestinians and Israelis in the region. Their conclusion was that the Palestinians have no right – in the international legal sense – to the region, unlike Israel, who is legitimately entitled to all land beyond the 67 line.
The story goes back to the ’90s, when Israel began work for the construction of the Jerusalem light rail. The tender was won by French companies Veolia and Alstom. The light rail was completed in 2011, and it crosses Jerusalem all the way through the city”. (Israel is the Legal Occupant of Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria, Rules Court of Appeal of Versailles)
Wow! that’s something quite amazing, but kept hidden from the Press, or by the Press, for several years.  So it’s not occupied land, but owned land, that is recognised by a Court of Law in France!  (I have also heard that land taken from an attacking enemy when defending what you already have, does not have to be returned under present International Law).
Have We Entered An Era Of The Return Of Nationhood?
Even as I am writing this, by email I receive ‘Richardswatch’ latest blog Fulfilled Prophecies #15 – UK’s & USA’s Identities and Destiny.  In it he quotes what I had already intended to include in this article, that which Donald Trump – yes, that man! – said in the interview for the Times with Michael Gove  “People, countries, want their own identity, and the UK wanted its own identity”.  It’s that simple. There is something about Nationhood in the heart of every man and woman it seems.
Consider the sporting world. There seems no greater honour or achievement for an individual than to represent his/her Nation at the highest level.  Whether it’s in the Olympics, or Football World Cup, Rugby World Cup, Tennis, Sailing, Cricket, Commonwealth Games, or whatever.  The list is endless, and the personal pride to represent your Nation, huge.  Though we occasionally witness outbursts of anger in the highly competitively charged atmosphere, all these events are fought out in the most peaceful terms.  Winning for your Country is probably their most treasured occasion in life.
It seems there is a just cause, placed there by Almighty God, in the heart and mind of every person, because He created the Nations, for identity of belonging, purpose, and destiny.  He intended to bless every one.  Part of that blessing is to value our own Nationhood.  It is a vital part of the sense of belonging.
I am also convinced that as we accept Israel as a legitimate and God formed Nation, back again in the Land of Israel, we shall see much greater blessing upon our own Nation. The promise to Abraham was that as men blessed him, God would bless them.  That applies to Nations too.
Brexodus
On the News round-up on TV I saw this headline on one of the tabloids “Brexodus”!  Its a pithy slogan, yes, but it does remind me of what the Lord prompted us on when we first began to pray earnestly in March last year about the then upcoming Referendum – that of Moses saying to Pharoah “Let My people go” in what became their Exodus.  Even tabloids are returning to Biblical stories for their headlines!  God is doing something in our day.
With our return to ‘Nationhood’,  there arises such an opportunity for our God-given heritage, that of the truth of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, to bud and blossom in our Land again.  For righteousness to spring up again, not with any sense of condemnation upon those who have forsaken that, this time around, but with an attractive lifestyle which others desire.  The blessings that follow such a lifestyle are too numerous to list, and are thanks to our wonderful God who freely granted us forgiveness when we came to Him recognising we had strayed from Him.
We are in the process now of leaving the EU, hence the Brexodus label, awaiting only issuing the declaration of Article 50 of the Lisbon (EU) Treaty.  Lets pray, whether we were personally for or against the result, for Gods blessings on us in course of the negotiations, and that the peace of God will cover all the talks and engagements.
It will be very difficult for the EU to make us any offers at all, as they do not want to be seen to hold up ‘carrots’ for other EU States presently considering their own Membership, to also go for an exit! But, in context of a Brexodus, lets pray we come out loaded down with benefits similar to those the people of Jacob did when they left Egypt thousands of years ago!
We want to see Britain again as carriers of Gods blessings so that we can bless the rest of the world with the freedoms He has invested in us as a Nation, primarily that of the Gospel, with all the resultant freedoms that brings. We can gladly say to the Lord  “For You and for Your Kingdom”,  “Your will be done”.  These are incredible days, and the scene is well set for God to move in unprecedented (in my lifetime) ways in our Country for His name and purposes.

Truth and Travail


This is from the blog A Word in Season:
“And Adam knew Eve his wife;
and she conceived…”
Genesis 4:1
Travail is the fruit of conception. While many may know the teachings and scriptures of God’s Word the travail of the mystery is lacking. Conception is the fruit of relationship; deep, intimate relationship. It is a sharing that goes beyond the casual relationship, beyond the confines of religious prayer meetings and Sunday services. It is an affair of the heart where intimacy and love is known between the Bride and the Bridegroom. While a man may have many friends and acquaintances, there is something far deeper and more profound in the relationship with his wife. From that intimacy we see conception, travail and the birth of something new. There is the wonder of a new creation, a separate being which is the expression of the love shared. This natural expression is simply the revelation of something deeper, purer and holy in God’s wisdom (Ephesians 5:31-32) concerning His purposes in the earth.
“And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary:
for thou hast found favour with God.
And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb,
and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS”
Luke 1:30-31
This purpose is for all who have received Him into their lives; the bringing forth of the Son in all of His Glory, humility, grace and wisdom. Just as a woman cannot conceive by her own will so it is in the Spirit. Conception is the fruit and wonder of relationship. It is not of the work of men but the result of intimacy with God in the Spirit. Those who do not know the stirring and moving of God deep within their hearts will never experience the conception and travail of His Spirit. While many are content with the forms and appearances of religion there is something deep at work within those who have conceived of the wonder of “another life” growing within the womb of their spirit.
Mary’s life was the means of the very incarnation of God. In the wisdom and glory of God, by means of the Holy Spirit, “…the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us”. In like manner that same transaction between God and man has been occurring for centuries in those who yield to the purpose and Lordship of the Holy Spirit. The expression of every individual will be in proportion to the depth of relationship between them and their God. What each of us do with the sowers seed, the given talents and the “pounds” spoken of in the parables, determines the fruit of our lives. The interaction between every believer and God is not determined by what one knows but by how one loves and obeys Him.
It is on the basis and the very essence of His Life within us (conception) that we are being born again as His nature is imparted and augmented in the human heart. This is the interaction of God in man. It is not the result of someone uttering a prescribed prayer or statement; it is the result of receiving the very person of Christ Himself into the human heart.
“But as many as received him,
to them gave he power to become the sons of God,
even to them that believe on his name”
John 1:12
The power to become sons is on the basis of receiving Him. The human egg within a woman must receive the life of the man in order for conception to occur. This is the Holy Truth of His Life within us. May God open our eyes to the miracle and wonder of His birth within us. It is “not by might, nor by power but by His Spirit” that these things are true.
The validity of conception is revealed by the changes wrought within the life of a believer because of another life living within. Religious conformity will never accomplish the revolutionary power of change that only comes by the transforming life of the Son.
“And be not conformed to this world:
but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind”
Romans 12:2
Religion is about conforming to a teaching or a prescribed mode of behavior. Living truth is about transformation whereby we are changed from the fallen Adam into the “express image” of God Himself.
The power and truth of this is portrayed in the heavens concerning this day. The Bride of Christ is with child, crying out and travailing in birth, in pain, to bring forth this Holy expression in the earth (Romans 8:19-23). Those of His Bride know this travail. The religious cannot understand such things for it can only be known through the impelling force of being with child.
“And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered”
Revelation 12:1-2
(To be continued in Part Two)

D-Day, 2017: British and American Christianity



Dreams from the LORD 2011-2017
13 January 2017
Last night I had two dreams.
In the first dream, I was an officer in the British Army.  I was dressed in a uniform that the British wore in World War I.  There were all of these British soldiers lined up in a straight line and marching past me.  As they marched past me, I would hold out my fist and each soldier would bump his fist with my fist. Every time one of the soldiers gave me a fist-bump, I would say, "Go."  It looked like we were preparing for an invasion---something like D-Day in 1944.
In the second dream, I was with this elite American group of fighters.  It looked like we were Navy SEALs, Delta Force or mercenaries.  We were dressed in black and had black camouflage paint on our faces.  Someone handed us our weapons; I was given a submachine gun.  We were getting ready to go on some night operation.
This dream is about intercession/spiritual warfare.  I believe this dream means that the Lord is mobilizing British and American Christians to invade and destroy certain aspects of Satan's kingdom/world system.  With Great Britain leaving the European Union (Brexit) and the United States voting Donald Trump into the White House in 2016, we are now ready to destroy Satanic strongholds like Globalization (Global Elites), ISIS, abortion, homosexuality (the left-wing anti-family agenda), the United Nations (which is pro-Islam and anti-Israel) enviro-paganism (the lies of climate change/global warming), Marxist ideology and other strongholds.  
The official date of this invasion may be 20 January 2017 when Donald Trump becomes the 45th President of the United States.  The British and American Christians have been fighting/praying/preparing for years for such a time as this.  This dream is not just about British and American Christians, because Christians all over the world are fighting/praying against the strategies of Satan (the gates of hell). This dream was very positive:  there will be many victories in the future for those who follow Jesus Christ.  
Isaiah 54: 17:  "No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD."

Taught of God


This is from the blog A Word in Season:
“But as touching brotherly love
ye need not that I write unto you:
for ye yourselves are taught of God
to love one another”
1 Thessalonians 4:9
The culmination of God’s work within an individual is Love; His Love ruling and reigning in the life of His own. While those with “itchy ears” (desirous of hearing something pleasant Literal Greek Definition) clamor to hear teachers who will entertain the intellect and arouse their curiosity, those who are taught of God are brought into the arena of His Love for one another.
“For the time will come
when they will not endure sound doctrine;
but after their own lusts
shall they heap to themselves teachers,
having itching ears;
And they shall turn away their ears from the truth,
and shall be turned unto fables”
2 Timothy 4:3-4 (LITV)
The Gospel of God speaks of righteousness and grace. It presents to us a bruised and broken Son of God, delivered to wicked men to be crucified on our behalf, that we should no more be slaves of sin but would become servants of righteousness. The gospel of pleasant things is “another gospel” prevalent in preaching of today. The verse preceding the above one is Paul’s instruction to Timothy of what his preaching should be.
“Preach the word; be instant in season,
out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort
with all longsuffering and doctrine”
2 Timothy 4:2
We are to preach the Word, reproving, rebuking, and exhorting one another in the fervor and passion of the Holy Spirit. In our day those who live and preach such things are ostracized and ridiculed for being “legalistic”. In reality the Word declares just the opposite.
“Having a form of godliness,
but denying the power thereof:
from such turn away”
2 Timothy 3:5
It is those who live in the realm of appearances and hold to a form of righteousness from whom the Apostle exhorts Timothy to turn away. We have perverted the Gospel to such an extent that the “professors” of religion are accepted while those who seek to preach righteousness are turned away even by many who call themselves by His Holy Name. People desire to hear only “pleasant things”; things that soothe the soul and anesthetize the conscience from that word that would pierce asunder “soul and spirit” and make manifest the ulterior motives of the heart (Hebrews 4:12).
Those who are taught of God know of His Love which corrects, chastens and reproves that they may grow in the righteousness of God in Christ. Those who love religion and appearance are comfortable with a form of goodness and have no desire to come to the truth.
To be taught of God is to desire His word of reproof, exhortation and rebuke from all who walk in the light of God. Truth is the only means by which we can know in the depths of our hearts what God’s Love is. The Holy Spirit is never called the Spirit of Love; it is called the Spirit of Truth. It is in the ministration of truth, that piercing revelation of all who Jesus is, that we have any concept of the Holy Love of God. God’s love does not overlook sin; it atones for it!
Love is the end of God within His people. Those who know God love His people and have His heart, His call and His desire for them beating within their own hearts. It is from such that His ministrations of truth proceed. Those who speak only “pleasant things” are those who desire only pleasant things. Those who compromise with sin in their own hearts will easily overlook the sins of others. Those who shun those who speak truth are those who also shun truth in their own hearts; for by their works men reveal their true condition. It is a day of the unveiling of all things. The Revelation of Christ is also the day of the revelation of all hearts. In the shining forth of Him all things hidden will be exposed and “the Lord alone shall be exalted in that day”.
To Love someone is to care
To care for someone is to speak truth
To speak truth is to reveal Jesus
To reveal Jesus is to Honour the Father
To Honour the Father is to Love the Son
Whether or not we are taught of God is revealed by the depth of His Love which flows from our hearts to others. The validity of an individual being taught of God is revealed in the Love they walk in. If we only love those who love us we know not God.
“And if you love those who love you, what thanks is there to you? For even sinners love those who love them. And if you do good to those who do good to you, what thanks is there to you? For even the sinners do the same. And if you lend to those from whom you hope to receive, what thanks is there to you? For the sinners lend to sinners so that they may receive the same. But love your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing in return; and your reward will be much; and you will be sons of the Most High, for He is kind to the unthankful and evil ones”
Luke 6:32-35

“He that loveth not knoweth not God;
for God is love”
