A Laughable Strategy: Part 3 of 3

A LAUGHABLE STRATEGY : 3 of 3

1 Samuel 2:28, Luke 15:11-32, 1 Corinthians 13:13

The bouncing baby boy was a dream come true for the parents whose other child had been called to heaven from the womb rather than the world. Soon they discovered the beauty of life in Christ and dedicated their most prized possession to Him. As sanctified in private as they were in public, the parents nurtured the one given over to God, more as a ward of heaven than a son. The Father taught him the power of kindness and hard work to vanquish selfishness and dependence, while the Mother instilled in him confidence and aspiration, unrestrained by voices of apprehension or acquiescence.

While he’d always believed in the deity of Christ, a predilection with religion failed to connect with the call of God he felt so deeply in his heart. However, religion would prove a perfect soul mate for intellectual, professional, social, and cultural enlightenment. This new hybrid-god of enlightenment received all the praise for his many, varied, and significant accomplishments. The son given to and gifted by God preferred the prodigal lifestyle of works to the laughable strategy of faith.

In time the opiate of enlightenment proffered by the hybrid-god, loss its potency to silence the call of God pulsating in his heart. The prodigal was compelled to search out just enough religion to restore the opiate of his addiction to sufficient potency. While he was looking for religion but loitering in the spiritual, the Holy Spirit illuminated the Word, revealing the emptiness of enlightenment and futility of life apart from Christ. Though the son given over to God had in fact reconciled with the true inspiration of his calling, his mind held fast to a preference for objective initiative over the laughable strategy of hope.

God reprised the call on his life with marked clarity by the Word, divine inspiration, and prophetic counsel. He embraced past successes as building blocks of the prophetic vision God had spoken into his spirit. However, the more his love of the Lord grew, the more pronounced seemed the set backs he experienced. While the disintegration was broad, personal, persistent, and painful, the son given over to God experienced joy and peace that surpassed his understanding. Notwithstanding, he envisioned and longed more for prophetic performance than the laughable strategy of love.

By grace and growth his gifts kicked their enlightenment addiction, aligning instead with faith. His initiatives were liberated from blind objectivity, qualified instead by hope. His expectations now found focus beyond circumstances; his heart given over to the love of God alone. Clarity! His ministry and profession were divinely conjoined. The Call he felt so deeply would require complete surrender of all the currency of life: emotions, possessions, potential, and passions. The Spirit of God illuminated a course of action, where the most comprehensive was also the most improbable. The call came quickly, confirming that the Word yet held the power to part seas of impossibility.

A LAUGHABLE STRATEGY : Part 2 of 3

Joshua 1:1 – 6:27

Though the tent nation from the other side of the sea languished in the wilderness, they routinely surmounted challenges far exceeding their proficiency. Year after year they evidenced no commitment to national strategic initiative or infrastructure development. The efficacy of their theocratic governance could be objectively debated as they repeatedly uprooted the entire citizenry according to the random movements of a single perennial cloud, a laughable strategy.

Eventually their neighbors dismissed them as a menagerie of nomadic savants going nowhere. The One who’d secured their emancipation, enrolled them as student-ministers in the most advanced University of Spiritual Cultivation since the cessation of studies at the Garden of Eden and before the coming of Pentecost. Comprised of twelve different schools, this university of higher calling taught only three courses: reverence, faith, and obedience. Some forty years later the first and only graduating class celebrated its baccalaureate, dressed in war regalia rather than caps and gowns, on the shores of Jordanian destiny.

As it was in the beginning, destiny again lay on the other side of an aqueous barrier of impossibility. Led by representatives from the School of Levitical Studies, they proceed resolutely without so much as a single floatation device, a laughable strategy. After an inexplicable splash-free crossing, they constructed a profound but simple monument to remind their progeny of the faithfulness of the One who’d called them unto Himself.

It yet appeared that breaking into destiny would be every bit as challenging as breaking out had been forty years earlier. Though shielded by a second purportedly impenetrable fortification, the adroitness with which they vanquished the first gave rise to grave concern throughout the region. Ensconced in a defensive but determined posture, the experienced adversary relocated critical resources and non-combatants to the rear. However, their reconnaissance suggested these would be invaders were more adept at revelry and marching than fighting.

Day after day the tent nation from the other side of the other side, marched around the fortification separating them from destiny, blowing horns, yet another laughable strategy. Eventually the alert-status within the protectorate was lowered and non-combatants were allowed to lampoon the spectacle first hand. However, on the seventh day, the Word called for the music to be remixed and instructed that the marching be extended. These changes coincided with the complete collapse of the heretofore-impenetrable fortification. Thereafter, resistance was futile.

Resisting the Word is far to daunting a task for even the richest or most powerful, yet today self-anointed sovereigns remain dedicated to this pursuit. Standing on the Word requires exercise of but a portion of the faith each has been gifted; yet today few are willing to march to the beat of Word music.

Exodus 6:1 – 14:31

They had been considered a treasure because of their giftedness, and then a national security threat because of their perceived potential. Their fate appeared to rest upon the negotiating skills of a reluctant Ambassador sent from somewhere in the desert by a Sovereign whose press kit described him simply as “I Am that I Am”. The Ambassador’s curriculum vitae included forty years of governance studies, forty years of wilderness survival studies, and would soon be updated to include a forty-year residency in both.

The Ambassador was directed to command the most powerful Monarch of the province to immediately surrender his most valuable organic assets, allowing them to fulfill their destiny as the chosen servant-ministers of another King and Kingdom. Intelligence reports confirmed that the Ambassadors’ home Kingdom held no military, geographical, or economic resources of consequence. Theirs was a laughable strategy, given the prowess and comprehensiveness of the Monarchs capabilities. No point-spread was posted for this “Rumble on the Nile”.

With contempt, the Monarch implored the Ambassador to either throw in the towel or let the games begin. Convention dictated that the Ambassador return home, pending a military buildup. However, the Ambassador resorted to yet another seemingly laughable strategy. He simply repeated his Kings Words to the Monarch and then extended his shepherd’s staff. From the Word and such a seemingly pedestrian gesture came nine cataclysmic judgments in the form of ecological, biological, meteorological, and cosmological phenomenon. Each judgment was met with defiance and retaliation, rather than capitulation. The Ambassador reticently pondered whether another strategy would be required for Kingdom Power to overcome World Power.

The Ambassador received a new Word from his Sovereign that held fast to the same laughable strategy. So compelling was this Word, the Ambassador directed all would be servant-ministers to first seek a parting gift from their neighbors, and then to book their reservations for the trip by marking the door post of their homes. Unbeknownst to the Monarch, the cost of ignoring the Word was to be far greater than the loss of silver, gold, low cost national palaces, and unfettered personal leisure.

The Word is the most powerful force in the universe; it can never fail. The Kings Word and article of faith in the hand of the Ambassador was powerful enough to provide a red carpet through the sea of impossibility. World Power always laughs first, then dismisses, and finally resists the Word. The Monarchs determined resistance led ultimately to a genealogical holocaust, military annihilation, and economic collapse. So long as the World continues to resist the Word, calamity will remain indelibly imprinted on the human historical experience.

Ahab Begot Jezebel : Highly Contagious and Deadly – Part 4 of 4

AHAB BEGOT JEZEBEL : HIGHLY CONTAGIOUS AND DEADLY – Part 4 of 4

…I will avenge the blood of my servants the prophets and the blood of all the Lord’s servants shed by Jezebel. The whole house of Ahab will perish…2 Kings 9: 7-8

Ahabs may arrive from nowhere, but seldom without a plan to get somewhere. Jezebels may have personal potential limited vision, but are adept at leveraging the potential of others. While their sticky potential in the natural is obvious, Ahab and Jezebel are bonded by a dark spiritual agency, mutual immorality and loyalty to deception.

After sufficient exposure, deception yields the highly contagious and deadly spiritual virus of delusion. The strength of the virus increases exponentially so long as delusion resides. Infected by delusion, Ahabs beget many more Ahabs, and Jezebels beget many more Jezebels. Only personal reconciliation with biblical truth can arrest this deadly spiritual virus. Delusion, having anesthetized the spiritual senses, makes discerning deception difficult. Delusion embraces emoting as confirmation of true worship.

Structure has brought membership growth, but not liberty to the human spirit. Within organizations acutely infected by the virus of delusion, few lead their lives, households, or relationships in agreement with the spirit of truth. While members may have been infected by Ahab and Jezebel inspired viral delusion, this spiritual infection can’t be eradicated by attacking its communicable agents.

The actual battle for release and relief from debilitating spiritual diminishment is between the spirit of truth and the spirit of deception. Ahab and Jezebel have two abiding connections with deception; it is the progeny of their personal immorality. Should this progeny come under assault by the truth, they will resist dissemination of the truth by attacking the source of revelation or obfuscating the truth itself. They will also enlist the support of the many Ahabs and Jezebels, their viral delusion has birthed.

Truth has its own spiritual authority and power of revelation. Truth is impenetrable and unimpeachable, undaunted yet accessible, courageous and survivable, peerless yet reviewable. Truth needs no gift-wrapping nor ruggedized containment. Truth excavates and evacuates, while seeding and liberating. Truth sets those arrested by deception free, while causing patrons of deceptions to flee. Truth causes dark spirits to cower, while the spirit of life towers. Only the same truth that empowers the Angel Armies can overcome deception. Truth disrobes Ahabs and exposes Jezebels. Truth sets the captives free.

The end of Ahabs who are malfeasant with the authority entrusted to them by God, and the Jezebels who usurp and fraudulently exercise it, is well understood. The end for those who join this sinful mob, choosing the spirit of deception over the spirit of truth is no different, never mind having been infected by those they trusted.

Ahab Begot Jezebel : Defeating Deception and Delusion – Part 3 of 4

AHAB BEGOT JEZEBEL : DEFEATING DECEPTION AND DELUSION – Part 3 of 4

“Is there no longer a prophet of the Lord here whom we can inquire of?” “There is still one prophet… but I hate him because he never prophesies anything good about me…1 Kings 22: 8-9

Immorality begot deception, which begot delusion, and delusion always begets destruction. The delusion that controls Ahab and Jezebel is the same that developed in Satan, leading him to attack God’s sovereign rule in heaven. Ahab and Jezebel are but clandestine agents pursuing this same initiative. Ahab’s and Jezebel’s mission is to take authority over and disrupt the mission of God in the earth realm. Satan must resort to deception to obfuscate the truth regarding his defeat at the hands of Christ Jesus, and God’s magnanimous plan for His creation in eternity. He has no other weapon or choice.

To allow delusion to operate unchallenged is to invite both spiritual and natural calamity. Those who embrace the author of truth and life must realize that the spirit that indwells them has both exposed the deadly intent of delusion, and tread upon the pernicious spirit of deception. Discernment and embrace of truth are sufficient for victory. While truth and transparency have their own power and have already overcome the world – how are Ahab and Jezebel able to conquer so much territory and take so many captive?

The strategy employed by Ahab and Jezebel is no different than that seen in Heaven and Eden. A choice for truth ushers in the assurance of deliverance and eternal relational access to a holy God. Deception is the only arrow in the enemies quiver with any potential to carry out an attack on the truth. However, a sound understanding of this diabolical strategy is second in importance only to the revelation of truth itself. The arrows of deception can only find their marks when by free election one disengages their loyalty from truth. Such disengagement is often induced by human alliances and wanting-what-we-want, which pushes away the giver.

Does God sit ideally by while Ahab and Jezebel covertly and clandestinely reap havoc on the truth? No. God has already defeated the author of deception and provided His own with potent resources for exposing it. Nevertheless, the people of God must both chose truth and remain loyal to truth. The purveyor of deception is fully aware of his defeat, yet he remains committed to discrediting the truth, his objective being to destroy God’s elect. Only through those who yield their loyalty, does deception achieve new facility by which to operate.

Fully aware of his eternally defeated status, God’s enemy has not retreated. Ahab and Jezebel embrace their undeclared mission similarly. Only by embrace of the same power of truth and life that brought about the defeat of darkness at Calvary, can Ahab and Jezebel be delivered.

Abduction By Obstruction

Abduction By Obstruction

Silence is Fueling the Fight

By His sovereign election, a loving God took the unfathomable risk of granting free-will to men and women. Therefore they have authority to conduct their lives in accordance with the revelations arising from God’s Word, or solely in accordance with the dictates of their conscience. Each has been granted this divine discretion, and is accordingly held solely and personally accountable for their choices.

Those who appease their preconceived opinions or feelings by diminishing the free-will of another to choose yea or nay, act beyond their authority. Every man has the right to be shielded from the tyrannical abduction of personal choice and prerogative at the hands of another, whether inspired by pernicious prejudice or presumptive providence.

Free will discharged in the light of God’s Word is never an accomplice to obstruction of divine discretion. Respectful accommodation of the exercise of divine discretion by another does not require nor infer complicity, and cogent consideration can be extended without endorsement. Respectful accommodation absent complicity, endorsement, or both, does not confirm xenophobia.

Ahab Begot Jezebel : Discerning Deception and Delusion – Part 2 of 4

AHAB BEGOT JEZEBEL : DISCERNING DECEPTION AND DELUSION – Part 2 of 4   

And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, how long halt ye between two opinions…

and the people answered him not a word – 1 Kings 18: 21

Jezebels are the boots who march to the beat of their Ahabs brokenness. To overthrow Jezebels destructive campaign, one must engage the source from which she draws sustenance, rather than the infidelity of her counterfeit authority. Assault in the natural by wrong words and actions, are impotent against spiritual immorality and deception. A battle in the natural against spiritual forces will have tragic consequences for such ill-advised combatants. All must maintain prescient awareness that Jezebel is first and foremost a spirit as opposed to only a personality.

Jezebel’s embrace of counterfeit authority took flight on the wings of immorality loyal to deception, but now spiritual delusion maintains her purge of the truth. Blinded by the applause of the spiritually deluded, she believes herself to be all-knowing and all-powerful, and her authority to be authentic. Disavowing that she is actually the progeny of Ahab, Jezebel considers Ahab to possess scant potential for accomplishments of note that are not facilitated by her. Ahabs disavow the mutuality of their delusion until the arrow of misadventure penetrates the very gift he sought to surrender to Jezebel.

Jezebels possess unique reptilian qualities, but you can’t kill a Jezebel by simply severing the head of Ahab. Unlike reptiles whose regenerative powers exclude the head, Jezebel is capable of beguiling the spiritually vulnerable into supporting a new titular head she endorses. His given name might be Ahaziah, but his aversion to accountability is even more potent than that of Ahab. Ahaziah functions in even less relational balance with Jezebel than had Ahab. Neither Ahaziah nor his conscripted supporters eschew the delusional ethos of Jezebel or the fatal spiritual consequences of her deception.

Minds blinded by spiritual delusion often manifest what might appear to be spiritual vision, giftedness, and human compassion. Darkness searches out others it can similarly addict to the same elixir of deception. Only hearts that embrace spiritual truth can discern such spiritual delusion. Ones true nature is undeniably revealed by the standard established by the Savior Himself; you shall know them by their fruits. Spiritual diminishment and discord are signatures of deception, whereas spiritual growth and harmony are fruits indicative of commitment to divine truth in operation.

Failure to operate with spiritual discernment exposes every man and woman to the same deception governing Ahab and Jezebel. Whether person or faction, sharing power, providing cooperation, or extending consideration to an Ahab or Jezebel, constitutes spiritual opposition to the Kingdom of God. Though knowledgeable of spiritual truth, immorality advocates aperitifs of deception, where after delusion certifies and facilitates operations in the natural realm that war against the authority of God and His Kingdom. Ahabs and Jezebels know what spirit they operate in, and so must you.

Ahab Begot Jezebel : Immorality Loyal to Deception – Part 1 of 4

AHAB BEGOT JEZEBEL : IMMORALITY LOYAL TO DECEPTION – Part 1 of 4

    So she [Jezebel] wrote letters in Ahab’s name, placed his seal on them, and sent them

to the elders and nobles – 1 Kings 21: 8

Whether natural or spiritual, conception requires a seed and first cause event. There can never be sunrise or sunset absent sunlight and planetary rotation. There can never be progress absent objective and initiative. There can never be choice absent the right and capacity for free election. There can never be accountability absent responsibility and immutable authority. There can never be a Jezebel absent commission and sanction; all Jezebels, no matter their pre-existing potential are foremost the progeny of Ahabs.

While the disastrous impact of classical Jezebels is well chronicled, how Jezebels attain their thrones of misadventure is seldom scrutinized. Ahabs and Jezebels may be the progeny of aberrant emotional and circumstantial conditioning: adolescents unduly influenced by decidedly matriarchal family structures or denied maternal approval and acceptance. While Ahab can ignite the Jezebel potential in an otherwise disinclined women, a couple so predisposed harbors great potential for treachery and betrayal.

Ahab and Jezebel may at times exhibit a form of giftedness exercised for the benefit of others, yet the discontinuity that undergirds both their effort and inaction is disquieting. The attraction entrapping them is neither authentically romantic nor conventionally social, its inspiration derives from premeditated unethicalness, the spirit of immorality. Conflicted worldview, intellectual, and cultural cues are insufficient to either illuminate or dissuade their pernicious addiction to one another. Tragically for those subject to their influence or leadership, Ahab and Jezebel are devout patrons of deception.

Throughout the Eden era, Prophetic age, to more recent contemporary periods, Jezebels have been presumed to be scandalous and self-inspired. In reality, Jezebels are the boots who march to the beat of their Ahab’s brokenness. Ahab’s aversion to accountability gestates in Jezebel a compulsion to assume responsibility for that which she possesses no authority. Blinded by deception, neither appreciates that Ahab can forfeit his authority, but cannot delegate it. Jezebel confiscates counterfeit authority, for which she must become adroit at both beguiling subterfuge (BS) and spiritual deception.

Jezebel exudes an aura of all knowingness and all powerfulness, beguiling those lacking spiritual discernment. Jezebel craves adulation for herself not Ahab. Jezebel: drives Ahab to attain possessions and positions that enhance her personal prestige, subsumes community accomplishments for her personal glorification, and demands financial tribute to nourish her unquenchable appetite for treasure. Jezebel only destroys, while Ahab lashes out in anger to ventilate that his lament cannot comfort.

When mortally wounded in their death chariots or on their death beds, Ahabs experience their last opportunity for clarity and spiritual redress regarding the tragic consequences of their own creation; Jezebel.

Undermining Jurisdiction of Choice, Privacy, and Oversight

UNDERMINING JURISDICTION OF CHOICE, PRIVACY, AND OVERSIGHT

 The Objectives of the few are clear; the Dangers to the many remain obfuscated

Part I of VI: Fear and Greed share a Common Convention – Acquisition

Catastrophic security breaches (subversion, surveillance, espionage, impersonation, and piracy) abound, impacting every network connected user class (portal, enterprise, small and medium business, and consumer). Yet, there are three things government and certain businesses don’t want anyone (e.g. constituents and clients) other than themselves to control jurisdiction of: choice (who), privacy (what), and oversight (consent).

The fact that choice, privacy, and oversight, share an overarching bond is not surprising. However, revelation of the allegiance between government and business that supplants this bond should be alarming. Government professes its principle interest to be national security. Business professes its principle interest to be compliance with the law.

For many, global communications networks represent a means to dispossess inefficiencies in knowledge and resource distribution. For a few, they represent a means of pervasive and covert surveillance. Recent disclosures indicate government has broadened its infiltration, while business continues to bolster profits. These fear and greed inspired missions require the few to resist the desires of the many to directly control choice, privacy, and oversight.

Part II of VI: Boundless Greed is a Patron of Bounded Fear – Collaboration

Whether covert government surveillance programs are constitutional and sufficiently proficient to discern nefarious intents is subject (bounded) to adjudication in accordance with democratically established conventions; if necessary, government actions may even be redirected. Understandably, business largely refrains from discussion of its evergreen (boundless) interests in access to client information used for commercial advantages. Both parties consider direct choice, privacy, and oversight to directly controvert their interests.

Neither government nor business is immune to the temptation to potentially know all. No matter the intensity of public protest and histrionics by business regarding government surveillance demands, their corporate behavior disavows the mutual identity of interests they allege with clients. Absent the restraint of direct choice, privacy, and oversight, all knowing has always given rise to attempts to realize more if not total control.

Part III of VI: Fear and Greed are supported by all Network Provider Classes – Facilitation

Service Providers, e.g. Internet Portals, often require users to authorize access to their personal information: email, voice mail, messages, text, tweets, searches, contacts, calendars, photos, and control of location, camera and video recorder functions. Device Providers, e.g. Smartphones and Tablets, and Mobile O/S Providers, are capable of covertly survieiling device resident user data, e.g. fingerprint and pass code files, no matter their protest to the contrary. Resource Providers, e.g. data centers, who store, and process multiple users information, enable broad one-stop attack opportunities. Communications Service Providers, e.g. Cable and Telecos, are meta data treasure troves for interlopers.

Part IV of VI: Fear and Greed Champion Inferior Security Technology – Equivocation

Service and Resource Providers have appointed themselves as trusted-third-parties, to protect client data from others while preserving access for themselves; such access is essentially unrelated to user security. However, access to such information is extremely valuable to Big Data and Analytics enterprises, both are new high margin network centric growth businesses. New Disintermediation services, e.g. transaction providers who require access to users personal credit card and banking information, are actually trusted-third-parties, who also evidence Big Data and Analytics enterprise potential.

Device (OEM) have limited influence regarding security. Mobile O/S Providers are actually the self-appointed trusted-third-parties, who determine with what apps and which service providers privately purchased devices may engage, and what royalty must be paid. This control is only marginally related to user security, but it is central to the gatekeeper strategy of a powerful Mobile Architecture Oligopoly.

It is alleged that Government, to include agencies charged to act as trusted-third-parties of Standards in the public’s interest, conspired to diminish the effectiveness of certain security technology and products. Further, well-known trusted-third-party Communications Service Providers substantially facilitate government’s Surveillance initiatives.

Part V of VI: How to Demystify Fear and Uncloak Greed – Disclosure and Education

While there are a number of impediments to direct control of choice (who), privacy (what), and oversight (consent), several are formidable. Resistance by government and business (inspired by fear and greed) are empowered by strategic denial and tactical silence. User indifference is sustained by lack of appreciation for potentially catastrophic but unintended consequences. Fear and greed can only be demystified and uncloaked by judicious disclosure and sober education. The fourth estate has failed unequivocally in this regard.

Part VI of VI: How to Thwart Fear and Throttle Greed – Technology and Determination

Network Centric tasks and sessions are currently supported by: a Digital Ecosystem e.g. all user classes, infrastructure, devices, apps, and data, and a Digital Monoculture comprised of integrated processes that preserve resource interoperability. Digital Jurisdiction e.g. direct control of choice, privacy, and oversight, requires a security technology breakthrough.

The rapidly advancing capabilities of friends and foe to surveil – where you’ve been and with whom, what you saw, what you said, what you did – and to impersonate you, has inspired ample determination across all user classes: portal, enterprise, small-medium business, and consumers. Insufficiently informed, resistance remains unfocused and easily rebuffed.

 Only User Controlled Jurisdiction can overcome Acquisition, Collaboration, Facilitation, and Equivocation

Because You Are Far More Than A Valentine

BECAUSE YOU ARE FAR MORE THAN A VALENTINE

The self cannot be itself if it does not grow, and for a creature made in the image of God,
to grow is to love…Eugene Peterson

When one deeply in love with another, begins to describe with passionate appreciation what has been unnoticed or ignored by others, some are sure to dismiss such words on the pretext that, “Love is blind”. They mean that love diminishes our capacity to see what is actually there. They mean that fantasy, tailor-made to fit ones desires, has been projected on another, making him or her acceptable as a lover. The cynical follow-up to this view is that whether one is the giver or object of such affections, were one to see the other truly, they would never get involved.

While a popular saying, as popular sayings so often are, this one is wrong. Love opens eyes. It is fear and hurt that blind. Love enables one to see what has been there all along but was overlooked in haste or indifference. Love corrects astigmatism so that what was distorted in selfishness and the need for control inspired by insecurity, is now perceived accurately and appreciatively. Love cures shortsightedness, so that the blur of a relationship that should have been can be seen in wondrous new focus. Love also cures farsightedness so that opportunities for intimacy transcend expedient emotional release, becoming multifaceted blessed occasions of mutual invitation and discovery.

Foremost, true love always draws our attention to Christ who has no cultural or political swagger with which to capture our attention, and no beauty that would cause us to crave His attention. In Him we see the only one among the sons of men free of bias, dishonesty, and injustice; a vessel of truth dedicated to the will of God the Father. This love penetrates the defenses of spiritual darkness, the patron of deception that deceives us into embracing impotent god rivaling enlightenment and self-sufficiency.

While there are many belief systems and belief-free persuasions, only one reveals and redeems the life created by God specifically for love, at no costs to the recipient other than yes!

So no matter what I say, what I believe, and what I do,
I’m bankrupt without [this] love…1 Corinthians 13:3
