Love is the foundation that builds faith, it is that which is above everything else.
If you have faith without love, you are nothing but a clanging cymbal.

In another life, me and Pleroo were the same person but we got split into twins, of course, everyone knows that she is the good one and me the evil dark one, and God loves her more than me, DANG the good luck, and damn my eyes for the bad.

I don't know what that is... your attempt at quoting Scripture I guess.

I guess it felt good to make up what you posted. That seems to be the theme here.

These are all Priests.


Revelation 14
The Lamb and the 144,000
1And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father's name written in their foreheads. 2And I heard a voice from heaven, as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of a great thunder: and I heard the voice of harpers harping with their harps: 3And they sung as it were a new song before the throne, and before the four beasts, and the elders: and no man could learn that song but the hundred and forty and four thousand, which were redeemed from the earth. 4These are they which were not defiled with women; for they are virgins. These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. These were redeemed from among men, being the firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb. 5And in their mouth was found no guile: for they are without fault before the throne of God.


Everyone taken from all history counted amongst these 144,000 are all priests, and to be called a Firstfruit is just that. Jesus rose as a firstfruit, and at the coming of Jesus, all those firstfruits get resurrected to be brethren to Messiah, not children, but brethren who have become high Priests in their own right because they had chosen the narrow way scraping past a 400 pound veil into the Holy of Holies where high Priests may go, and nobody else.


Their goal is to study day and night to become priests, and this is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven in the Holy of Holies, but also in the Holy place, there are also priests, and everyone counted among Israel becomes a priest.


Then you have the outer court of Gentiles which is also called the outer court of darkness, and this is where the great majority are sent and none of them are priests while Israel has become a nation of priests and of kings.


A Nation of priests and kings will have people to teach and rule over, and this is everyone in the outer court of darkness. All the nations will come to their light.


WE don't just have a goal, we are actually in a race against time, a race where many run but only one wins, that is our goal, to run the race for a better resurrection and a better resurrection leads to study in order to become a priest.

If you want to deny that love is the foundation on which faith is built, then go ahead and deny it.
It appears that fundamentalists despise the notion or idea that love takes precedence, over faith.

Yes by obeying him. He meant every word he said. Like this ultra important truth
Matthew 6:33-- Therefore, keep on seeking first the kingdom and his( YHVH(Jehovah) righteousness and all these other things will be added( sustenance, covering, spirituality)-- Then one learns to accomplish this- John 4:22-24)

Phl 2:13

for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure.

You guys are great at attributing thoughts out of thin air and pinning them on people.

The only thing I denied was you trying to quote Scripture.

In fact - I'm going to do the loving thing and move on from this - cause it's going nowhere - as usual.
