Dominion over hate

What if today at twelve o'clock noon, everyone, everywhere, stopped hating? What a heaven on earth this would be!

All of us can take a beginning step in this direction. Each human being can exercise his own God-given dominion over hate. The Way-shower, Christ Jesus, said, "A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another." Then he continued, "By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another." John 13:34, 35;

As we read the four Gospels, we can see that Jesus had a deep love for God, Spirit, and for man, whose true identity is the spiritual, perfect image of Spirit. This enabled him to restore the maimed to wholeness, awaken the sinner to goodness, heal the sick, and raise the dead to life and peace. Just before the crucifixion, our Master performed a loving act of healing. Judas came with soldiers to arrest Jesus. One of Jesus' disciples took a sword and cut off the right ear of the servant of the high priest. Of Jesus' act the Bible says, "He touched his ear, and healed him." Luke 22:51 ; Doesn't this prove that love has dominion over hate?
