I call the battle to live simultaneously within the two worlds, tug of love instead of tug of war. We may not be of this world as stated throughout the scripture; however, we sure can’t get away from living in this world until our time of living is over. The tug of war battle between two adversaries usually begins and ends the same way: there is no team work between the two adversaries working together as one at no time during the tug. However, in the tug of love battle between the two adversaries or worlds, working together as one from the beginning, and at times during the tug, is a very necessary phase in order to determine which world the tug of love champion will turn out to be. Matter of fact, the tug of love battle is more like a seesaw coordination of timely pushing up, and coming back down to push back up again; and then pausing to go off into the level of harmony established for the moment from all of the pushing up, and coming back down as you were working the two worlds together. In the tug of war battles, the winning world is determined by one of the worlds; however, in the tug of love battle, the winning world is determined by us: we get to choose the world in which we push up into to seek the victory. We can’t be pulled across to either world’s side unless we choose to be pulled across, and being deceived by the other world offers no exemption., so stay on your toes. Tug of Love, Father Vs This World.
It is critical that we also understand the purpose of the title of this post if we desire to stay on our toes, and not get caught off guard to fall into a deception that is contrary to our will to do his Will. When I use the title “Tug of Love, Father Vs This World,” it is so that we keep our eyes focused on all that is in this world. It would have been easier to just entitle this post “Tug of Love, Spiritual Vs Natural,” but our number one enemy in this world in not a natural being. The devil is the one that makes this world an adversary to the world of God by being the one having the power over this world along with his band wagon of fallen spirits. John 14:30, “Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me.” Once we accept Jesus and become a member of his Body, the prince of this world will indeed still come at us, but he will have nothing in us unless we allow him to have it. The devil stays mad at us because we have the eye of the Father, and he does not having only death in his future. Plus, you and I, having dual citizenship in both worlds, allowing us the opportunity to receive from both; hence, the seesaw of going up unto our choice, as oppose to the tug of being pulled over into the choice of another. When it comes to the perspective of how the Father is looking at this seesaw process of going up into the world of choice, and working both worlds together as a team, it’s just the way it begins. We are born of the natural into this world, and then we grow up to join in the battle of the tug of love: we will show by our push up if we love the Father, or if we love the world. We can best understand the process of how this works by reading up on some family friendly tug of love: John 3:30-31, “He must increase, but I must decrease. 31 He that cometh from above is above all: he that is of the earth is earthly, and speaketh of the earth: he that cometh from heaven is above all. Yeah, we were born all up in this world almost one hundred percent to begin with; but once we grow up to become of age, we too will end the begin to move into the tug of love between the two worlds. Who do you love is the question? Now go push up into the one you love to make him increase, for the world in which we begin at birth, must decrease. Tug of Love, Father Vs This World.
The Father In Spirit And In Truth Is Seeking Such To Seek Him.
