Mark Prophet on “Giving Ourselves Away for God”

“If we give ourselves away for God, we will have God. If we, like misers, hold everything into ourselves and keep it all bottled up inside, we won’t have anything. We’ve got to let the great flame of freedom blaze through our pores, consume our dross, be a fiery furnace of immortal life while we walk here in this world below, manifest and reflect the perfection of God by our thoughts. “As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.”

We’ve got to welcome fellowship with the Lord Christ. Certainly we love Jesus. Certainly Jesus loves us. Certainly he would pay the price for us. Certainly we’d pay the price for him or for anybody else if we know the meaning of love. If we don’t know the meaning of love, let’s find it and discover it. But how do you do it? You do it by becoming love in action.

How do you become love? You have to first learn what love really is, and love is God. And this rightfully will wrought change in our world. And it’s a beautiful change. It’s a beautiful sense that you will develop in this change.

It’s going to change your mind, it’s going to change your life, it’s going to change your vibration, it’s going to change everything. It’s going to create the satsanga that you really should have.

Do you know what’s going to happen then? You’re going to enjoy singing songs unto God. You know Peter and Paul, they sang even in prison. You’re going to enjoy your singing. You’re going to enjoy your decrees. You’re going to enjoy thinking about nature and God. You’re going to enjoy thinking about God in your body, thinking about God in your mind, thinking about God in your soul, thinking God, God, God, God all the time; and it won’t be torture, it won’t be deprivation.

Anything else would be deprivation.”
