How to love those who hate you: Let me tell you my story
I worked at a job where there was a practicing witch and she did every evil thing to me. She would sabotage my job, hide my work, say false accusation, pray curses at me. My car got hit in the garage 6 times in five months and I knew it came from her.
The Lord told me to pray for her and at first I hesitated but lead me to Luke 6:27-37. I did it out of obedience and prayed for the person.
Through time my heart changed and my bitterness was gone. I had a new love for her. Through praying for her, God was protecting me. You see when we love, it becomes a shield.
She still prayed curses on me but they went back on her. When I had bitterness, the door was open for the enemy to have its way with me. When I changed my heart and dealt with the bitterness, the Lord could protect me.
I could feel 6 large angels around me protecting me. In fact a prophet told me he saw 6 large angels around my work station.
The greatest gift we can own is loving our enemy because love covers a multitude of sin.
1 John 4:7-13
7 Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.
8 He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.
9 In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.
10 Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.
11 Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another.
12 No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us.
13 Hereby know we that we dwell in him, and he in us, because he hath given us of his Spirit.
Love is of God. The whole essence of God is love. He loved us so much that he sent his son sacrificial lamb for our sins. Has any other god done this in any other religion? No.
You see when I chose to pray my heart changed to love my enemy. It was not easy and was the hardest thing for me to do. I had to come to terms that the Lord loves this evil person. She is his creation. God will never give up and give this person many opportunities to know him.
Jesus wants us to love all to show Jesus to them through love.
Jesus loves us first to save us, to love others especially the bad and evil people that don’t know Christ allowing Jesus love to love my enemy transformed me and my enemy until they get saved.
This means not to allow envy and jealousy to get in your heart, or bitterness, or accusation, etc. Learn to forgive quickly and pray for your enemies and watch God do miracles in your life.

I leave you with this.
15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.
16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.
17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;
18 They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.
Another Story of How to Lvoe Those Who Ate You!
There are those who want to taint your reputation because they are jealous of you and want to destroy or control your life. I know I got free from a controlling person. I even had her break the contract agreement for her to continue the ministry, gave her all the money and equipment. The sad things is I signed something in which I never got a copy of that said I could not minister, go on missions, lay hands for healing or deliverance or give a salvation message for 3 years. I knew it was not right and got an attorney. The attorney told her to supply the paperwork but he was a deacon of a church and said no one cannot keep you from ministering the Word of God.
I had to forgive and continuously forgive this person. Not only that, she has told people without knowing the facts. I stopped defending myself and they don’t know they whole truth. Yes, I made mistakes but for me to be in right standing with God, I have to choose to forgive and bless her. For two years I blessed her and her ministry. Yes, I still find out what others know about me to not be true. Yes, to this day, my reputation is tainted in man’s eyes. I have to not care what others believe and know I am right with God. Any sin, I repent to him and not man. What I am saying is my reputation is not in man but God.
If we want signs to follow, practice the principles of loving your enemy and see the power radiate through you because of the Love of Christ is the true power that transforms lives.
