2. It wasn’t the Lord cursing the children of Israel because they didn’t do what He said; it was the children of Israel walking outside of that boundary of obedience where the curse was and of course it came on them (Deuteronomy 30:19 – It was their choice)

a. God will protect your decision to go to hell

C. The whole idea of the commandment of love is to keep zoe manifesting in your life so that you don’t have to live in darkness and in bondage to the curse – God’s commanding you to walk back into the garden

1. This commandment is literally in way is the same thing He said to Adam in Genesis 1 – He’s commanding you to walk love, be fruitful, multiply increase and flourish

2. We have the purpose now of this commandment ; It’s not so that God can be loved by you or so that God can have love robots; it’s so that you won’t turn that death force on and have to live in hell

IV. Love is going to take every spiritual force that God’s given you and cause it to operate on the highest level (Matthew 22:36-40, 1Corinthians 13:11)

E. Love elevates the blessing (Proverbs 10:22)

F. The love is activator – It’s working in me right now

1. Do this it’s going to take faith to a place that it moves mountains. It’s going to take joy to a place that it’s unspeakable and full of glory. It’s going to take peace to a place where it passes all understanding. It’s going to take the anointing to a place that it removes burdens and destroys yokes. It’s going to take the blessing to a place that it makes you rich. Daddy loves you. I’m going to give you my love so that you can do this. Now if you get to a place where you disobey me in this, don’t run from me, run to me, tell me about it, repent of it, and stay right here in what I’ve told you do. I got something good for you.
