Only Make Believe

John 14:21

Whoever has My commandments and keeps them, he it is who loves Me. And he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and manifest Myself to him.

Only make believe
I love you.

John 14:15
John 14:23
John 14:24

If you love Me, you will keep My commandments.
If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word.
Whoever does not love Me does not keep My words.

Only make believe
that you love Me.

1 John 3:16-17

By this we know love, that He laid down his life for us, and we ought to lay down our lives for the brothers. But if anyone has the world’s goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God’s love abide in him?

Some may find peace of mind in pretending
Should you?

1 John 2:4

Whoever says “I know Him” but does not keep His commandments is a liar, and the truth is not in him.

Should I?
Should we?

John 3:16
Acts 2:44-45

For God so loved the world, that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. And all who believed were together and had all things in common. And they were selling their possessions and belongings and distributing the proceeds to all, as any had need.

Make believe our hearts are blending
In a phantom bliss, of unity.

Luke 13:24-25

Strive to enter through the narrow gate, for many, I say to you, will seek to enter and will not be able. When once the Master of the house has risen up and shut the door, and you begin to stand outside and knock at the door, saying, “Lord, Lord, open for us,” and He will answer and say to you, “I do not know you.”

Might as well make believe I love you,
For to tell the truth,
I don’t.

The Twelve Tribes is a confederation of twelve self-governing tribes, composed of self-governing communities. We are disciples of the Son of God whose name in Hebrew is Yahshua. We follow the pattern of the early church in Acts 2:44 and 4:32, truly believing everything that is written in the Old and New Covenants of the Bible, and sharing all things in common.
