“I felt the love which I had felt just a few times before. This love caused me to love everything deeply that I looked upon. Of all of the glorious experiences I had received in the heavenly realm, this love was the most wonderful of all. I did not want the Lord to stop until this love had penetrated every cell of my being. I desperately wanted to keep this feeling…”
-Rick Joyner, from his book, The Torch and the Sword

“Holiness is the nature of heaven, and it must be your devotion. True holiness is true love. True love cannot come without true holiness, and true holiness always causes you to love, not condemn.”
-Jesus speaking to Rick Joyner in his book, The Torch and the Sword
“Holiness is perfected love.”
-Christopher Bounds, as I remember him teaching in class several years ago
“Now the best thing you actually can do for another person is for you to watch and pray. Because what that other person needs, that person you love- they don’t just need you. They need you with courage and discernment. Because if they have good old you you filled with fear, backslidden, with no discernment, you’re going to be a problem to them, not an answer…
If you really want to walk out love for people, get a burning heart and get a heart of discernment, and you will have the compass in the storm, you will have the map… The most practical way for you to love other people, is to build a bonfire in your spirit.”
-Mike Bickel, from his sermon “Being Strengthened to Stand Without Compromise”
