There are three forms of love described in the Christian Greek scriptures - EROS, PHILIA AND AGAPE.
EROS - Is the passion for the opposite sex that constitutes the emotional incentive to conjugal union. It is lust.
PHILIA - Is a feeling of warm personal attachment or deep affection as for a friend, for a parent or child, brother, sister or a relation. Usually the person is well known and your association or relationship demands the love as a duty.
Joel 2:1 - "Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain; let all the inhabitants of the land tremble, for the day of the Lord cometh, for it is at hand."
This is indeed is a message of awareness to the Church to remind us that the time of the return of the Lord is already at hand.
Judgment is a part and parcel of God's agenda for man; He had put everything in its course and had given man the opportunity to choose, most times man makes the wrong choice. The Bible tells us clearly about an impending judgment of events that will bring to an end God's dealing with this generation.
"So it was, as the multitude pressed about Him to hear the word of God. That He stood by the Lake of Gennesaret, an saw two boats standing by the lake; but the fishermen had gone from them and were washing their nets. Then He got into one of the boats, which was Simon's and asked him to put out a little from the land. And He sat down and taught the multitudes from the boat. When He had stopped speaking, He said to Simon, Launch out into the deep and lot down your net for a catch". (Luke 5:1-4).
When Jesus had this encounter with Simon, he was not yet an apostle and this was after an unfruitful labour throughout the night to catch fishes. Simon had no result, his toils were unproductive.

If you are convinced that that the Lord is telling you that something is not right about your relationship, or you have come to the conclusion that you have made a mistake, here is a few suggestions on how you can end such relationships without destroying your partner.
God wants to work with you to achieve your desires in life, so get your mind, emotions and will together and fix your gaze on Him then you will have the right motivation to rise above every challenge in life.
Worship as to do with our spirit's relationship with God. We have to first establish a relationship with God by inviting Christ Jesus into our lives as Lord and Savior. Now we have a relationship established with God.
