A Poem by Royal Phoenix
"

a poem that tells a story of my painting "Habibi"

"
Together Forever 
Upon each other we reflect
I am here for you to protect
I am here to connect

Through Agape
We procreate
The Universe 
In magical Dream state

You are in my eyes
I am in your eyes
So Free being pure Love
Flying high in the skies
... Habibi

Question: "What is agape?"

Answer: The Greek word agape is often translated "love" in the New Testament. How is "agape love" different from other types of love? The essence of agape love is self-sacrifice. Unlike our English word “love,” agape is not used in the Bible to refer to romantic or sexual love. Nor does it refer to close friendship or brotherly love, for which the Greek word philia is used. Nor does agape mean charity, a term which the King James translators carried over from the Latin. Agape love is unique and is distinguished by its nature and character.

Agape is love which is of and from God, whose very nature is love itself. The Apostle John affirms this in 1 John 4:8: “God is love.” God does not merely love; He is love itself. Everything God does flows from His love.

And Habibi is My Beloved in Arabic

The Greek translation is close, but there are one or two things missing. Φίλιππος Β' ὁ Μακεδών the ground work of John 4:8
