Unconditional Love – BT8
Downwards-Love overflows from God is Unconditional-Love and Unconditional-Love is God

Furthermore, because of my math background I started seeing equations as God gave me understanding in the previous BLOGS. It helps me to see complex ideas easier, but it may just freak you out! “Unconditional-Love (L) IS God (G)” so L = G because all the descriptive adjective-nouns that Paul use in “unconditional-love IS/exists-as” phrases in 1 Corinthians 13:4-6 are the same ‘flavors’ used to describe the “[singular] fruit/essence/nature of the Spirit IS unconditional-love” in Galatians 5:22-23. Thus “unconditional-love IS/exists-as the ‘flavors’ and all of this from the [singular] fruit/essence/nature of the Spirit” and because we know that the Father, Son, and Spirit are ONE God, we can thus say “unconditional-love IS/exists-as God.”
1 John 4:7-8 says “Beloved, let us unconditionally-love one another, for this unconditional-love (L) IS/exists/is-defined-as ek out-from-the-interior-of God (L = G) and/thus everyone [who is] routinely unconditionally-loving, [he/she] has been begotten ek out-from-the-interior-of God and/coupled [he/she] experientially, relationally, ginosko knows God. Anyone who is not in possibility routinely unconditionally-loving, has absolutely in fact not already experientially, relationally, ginosko known God because God IS/defined-as/exists-as Unconditional-Love.”
This is directly tying horizontal-love of Christians to the vertical-love that not only comes-out-of-the-interior-of God but IS God. John isn’t arguing that we “love our neighbor as yourself” out of obligation to follow an OT commandment, or even to “unconditionally-love one another as I have you”, although Christians have do have this ONE commandment – see Logos Word of God – BT16, but argues that Christians have been begotten out-from-the-interior of God that IS Unconditional Love, so naturally they will exhibit His essence/nature. Can you see the “symmetric property” of equality in mathematics? G = L and L = G!
Also, if a Christian (C) is born/originated from God (G –> C) and is thus in intimate koinonia fellowship with God as His child, and if Unconditional-Love IS God (L = G) and if unconditional-love comes ek out-from-the-interior-of God (G –> L), then by substituting Unconditional-Love (L) for God (G), this turns God begetting Christians (G –> C) into Unconditional-Love begetting Christians (G = L –> C), which is exactly the gospel logos message of John 3:16 that God so unconditionally-loved the world that we are begotten from God’s unconditionally-loving nature/essence! This is a vertical fellowship of God’s Unconditional-Love flowing downwards to us, making us completely-different-in-kind New Creations!

As Christian musicians, it’s just amazing how God can be unconditional-love and the very presence of unconditional-love be God! It makes total sense that if His very nature/essence of Unconditional-Love (G = L) comes vertically-downward into us as Christians (L –> C) in water-baptism to beget us as completely-different-in-kind NEW creations (G = L –> C), and the more we routinely get filled-to-completion or Spirit-baptized with the abundant-fullness of God per Ephesians 3:19 and 5:18 (more G = L –> C), then the more we will ginosko experience-to-know God and reflect Him in our horizontal-relationships with people (P) that is G = L –> C –> P. Can you see how God just flows through us to others?
Thank You Lord for making the NEW Covenant completely-different-in-kind and superior to the old palios “old, antiquated, worn-out, useless” covenant. NOW You are “the One Teacher” who comes into us so we can simply focus on a vertical-relationship of unconditional-love, experiencing-to-know Your very essence/nature. And as we do, You “work in us both to will/desire and to work Your good pleasure” just as Philippians 2:13 promises. Praise Your name that you have kept it simple for little children and the other “least among us.”
