The Love of “Jesus”

The reason that I am writing this article is to correct a very big misconception used by so many Christians to justify their own sin. It all started when I posted an article on this blog about John 8:1-11. It all goes about the woman caught in adultery that was brought to Y’shua who said “that he who is without sin, cast the first stone.” After he said this every departed and left her alone, then Y’shua forgave her and sent her on her way. The problem with this story is that John never wrote this and it was later added into the Bible by some Greek scribe to give the church evidence to teach a doctrine that is anti-Torah to condone adultery and other sins, teaching that we can do what we want and are all forgiven. (For a more detailed description, read the article here

The response I got from people was that it doesn’t matter if John wrote it or if it was added into the Bible later by someone else as it still describes the character of Y’shua. They claim that “By the love of ‘Jesus’” was she saved and that we should stop judging one another and rather love one another with the “love of Jesus.”

So let us see what the Bible really says what the “love of Jesus” really is and if we should help (judge) one another.

And the Passover of the Yehuḏim was near, and  יהושע  went up to Yerushalayim.
And He found in the Set-apart Place those selling oxen and sheep and doves, and the moneychangers sitting.
And having made a whip of cords, He drove them all out of the Set-apart Place, with the sheep and the oxen, and poured out the moneychangers’ coins and overturned the tables.
And He said to those selling doves, “Take these away! Do not make the house of My Father a house of merchandise!(John 2:13-16)

Is the love of “Jesus” to just forgive the wrongs of others? Y’shua actually made a whip and drove the people out of the temple grounds and overthrew their tables and stalls. When one of us believers would do something like that, we would be accused of not having the “love of Jesus” in us.

And one of them, one learned in the Torah, did question, trying Him, and saying,
Teacher, which is the great command in the Torah?
And יהושע (Y’shua) said to him, “‘You shall love יהוה (YHWH) your Elohim with all your heart, and with all your being, and with all your mind.’
This is the first and great command.
And the second is like it, ‘You shall love your neighbour as yourself.’
On these two commands hang all the Torah and the Prophets.(Mat 22:35-40)

To love YHWH with everything you have is to guard and keep His Instruction (Torah)

But a certain man named Ḥananyah, with Shappirah his wife, sold a possession.
And he kept back from the price, his wife also being aware of it, and brought a certain part and laid it at the feet of the emissaries.
But Kĕpha said, “Ḥananyah, why has Satan filled your heart to lie to the Set-apart Spirit and keep back from the price of the land for yourself?
While it remained, did it not remain your own? And after it was sold, was it not in your authority? Why have you conceived this deed in your heart? You have not lied to men but to Elohim.”
Then Ḥananyah, hearing these words, fell down and breathed his last. And great fear came upon all those who heard of this.
But the young men arose and wrapped him up, carried him out and buried him.
And it came to be, about three hours later, that his wife came in, not knowing what had taken place.
And Kĕpha responded to her, “Say to me whether you sold the land for so much?” And she said, “Yes, for so much.”
So Kĕpha said to her, “Why have you agreed to try the Spirit of יהוה (YHWH)? Look, the feet of those who have buried your husband are at the door, and they shall carry you out.”
And immediately she fell down at his feet and breathed her last. And the young men came in and found her dead, and carrying her out, they buried her beside her husband.
And great fear came upon all the assembly and upon all who heard of this(Act 5:1-11)

As you can see with the above verses, that the two people who told a small lie in the presence of the Ruach haKodesh (Set Apart Spirit) fell down dead. Would you say this is the “love of Jesus”? There cannot be lawlessness in the presence of the Almighty!

Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Master, Master,’ shall enter into the reign of the heavens, but he who is doing the desire of My Father in the heavens.
Many shall say to Me in that day, ‘Master, Master, have we not prophesied in Your Name, and cast out demons in Your Name, and done many mighty works in Your Name?’
And then I shall declare to them, ‘I never knew you, depart from Me, you who work lawlessness!(Mat 7:21-23)

This “lovey dovey” love that the church teaches is nothing but man made infatuation. The true love of Y’shua is for those who do the will of His Father in heaven. When all of us stand in front of Him on judgment day, he is going to separate those unrighteous people who did not guard and keep the Torah of YHWH from those righteous ones who did all the Commands of YHWH

For You are not an Ěl taking delight in wrong, Nor does evil dwell with You.
The boasters do not stand before Your eyes; You hate all workers of iniquity(Psalm 5:4-5)

This clearly says that all those who sin are hated by YHWH and His Mashiyach. The church teaches that the sin is hated but not the sinner, clearly they do not read Scripture. The difference between those the sinners and the righteous are that the righteous repent of their sins and turn back to YHWH and His Torah. The workers of iniquity are those who continually sin as a habitual practice and do not repent of their sins.

By this we know that we love the children of Elohim, when we love Elohim and guard His commands.
For this is the love for Elohim, that we guard His commands, and His commands are not heavy(1 John 5:2-3)

If we love Y’shua, then we are to keep all the Commands of YHWH, otherwise the love of Y’shua is not in us.

And seeing many of the Pharisees and Sadducees coming to his immersion, he said to them, “Brood of adders! Who has warned you to flee from the coming wrath?(Mat 3:7)

Brood of adders! How are you able to speak what is good – being wicked? For the mouth speaks from the overflow of the heart.
The good man brings forth what is good from the good treasures of his heart, and the wicked man brings forth what is wicked from the wicked treasure” (Mat 12:34-35)

 “Serpents, brood of adders! How would you escape the judgment of Gehenna?(Mat 23:33)

Is this the way someone with the “love of Jesus” talks to someone else? Clearly YES as these words were spoken by Y’shua himself! He hated the people who deceive the rest of the people with the doctrines of demons, just as the church is doing as we can see in this next piece of Scripture:

For there are many unruly men, senseless talkers and deceivers, especially those of the circumcision, whose mouths have to be stopped, who upset entire households, teaching what they should not teach, for the sake of filthy gain.
One of them, a prophet of their own, said, “Cretans are always liars, evil beasts, lazy gluttons.” This witness is true. Therefore rebuke them sharply, in order for them to be sound in the belief, not paying attention to Yehuḏite fables, and commands of men who turn from the truth(Tit 1:10-14)

Clearly we are to rebuke those who are teaching lies. These unrighteous people are to be shut up as they are leading the people who listen to them to the darkest pits of hell. Everyone is responsible for their own salvation. Don’t you think that you should then find out for yourself what salvation is, instead of listening to someone else tell you a lie and take your money! The church has mastered fooling people out of their hard earned money by preaching what is pleasant to hear by the congregation.
