Message Series: UNVEILING THE WONDERS OF GENUINE LOVE FOR GOD. Pt. 2A.
By: Pastor Adeniyi Alabi (Resident Pastor).
Genuine love is the kind of love that you have not necessarily because you want something from Him but because you want to advance His kingdom. The best way to show your love for God is to reach out to souls and bringing them to church. This is loving God for who He is and not for what you want to get from Him. You love Him for being our Father and creator.
Everything that works in this kingdom does so on the platform of the love covenant. There are two kingdoms in existence, the kingdom of God and the kingdom of darkness. The kingdom of God is ruled by genuine love. Without genuine love for God and man, nothing else matters in the kingdom of God 1 Cor. 13:1-3. Genuine lovers of God never experience failure or lack in life, so if you are struggling in life, check your love level for God. The fact is that it is what you make happen for others that God will make happen for you. Therefore, showing genuine love to God and to others will make you experience God’s lobe in return Matt. 22:38-39.
Loving God is a choice and this a choice we see many make in scriptures such as King David 1 Chro. 29:3. Jesus also had to ask again and again about the love that Peter had for him Jn. 21:15, Rom. 8:35-37. God loved the world and that is why He sent Jesus to this world to die for our redemption Jn. 3:16.
SOME WONDERS IN THE GENUINE LOVE COVENANT
1. SUPERNATURAL WEALTH IS IN THE LOVE COVENANT. This is what made Solomon to become extremely wealthy 1 Kgs. 3:1-13. When you are a genuine lover of God, He blesses you with more than you ask for. Without love for God, nothing yields profit 1 Cor. 13:3, 2 Cor. 9:7-8. If you want to walk in supernatural prosperity, then give cheerfully and willingly to the things of God. As you make up your mind to show love for God in your finances, supernatural wealth becomes your portion.
2. AS YOU SHOW LOVE FOR GOD, YOU BEGIN TO GET ACCESS TO REVELATION OF A NEW CHAPTER IN YOUR LIFE. This is as a result of having a divine encounter that unveils divine secrets to genuine lovers of God. Every time you receive a revelation or instruction from God for a new chapter of your life, things will never remain the same. They get much better. Abraham was in a state on still staying in his father’s house at old age and God visited him and revealed a new chapter of his life to him Gen. 12:1-3, and this resulted in a new chapter starting in his life and God prospered him greatly Gen. 13:1-5. Later, God tested his faith by placing a demand for his son Gen. 12:2. By Abraham obeying God and thus proving his love for God, God placed him under a sworn blessing Gen. 22:17-18. By salvation, we are connected to the blessing of Abraham Gal. 3:13-14. God will always place a demand on what you love to prove your love for Him.
3. WE HAVE ACCESS TO THE FLOW OF THE ANOINTING BY GENUINE LOVE. Because David had love for God and a heart that pants after God, the anointing was always upon him 1 Sam. 13:14, Psa. 89:19-24. This anointing made him to bring down Goliath and prevailed in the many battles that he fought as king. The anointing makes things work. To enjoy the anointing continuously, keep thanking God for every opportunity you are given. Soul winning is another opportunity you have to show God you love Him and are grateful for the life He has given you, so jump at it.
4. GENUINE LOVERS OF GOD ARE INDESTRUCTIBLE because the love of God is moving in them and the zeal is in them 1 Jn. 4:16-18. It was this love of God that made the three Hebrew boys to become indestructible when they were thrown into the fiery furnace Dan. 3:19-20. When they signed a decree against praying to God in the land, Daniel made the decision to continue to pray to God at the risk of losing his life because of the love he had for God and God rescued him Dan. 6. If you don’t have love for God and you are waiting for His blessings, you are wasting your time. Genuine lovers of God never get defeated in the battles of life. You shall be victorious.
5. GENUINE LOVE MAKES US UNDEFEATABLE IN THE BATTLES OF LIFE. When we put ourselves under divine covering by genuine love for God, He becomes our defender and protects us from all of life’s battles. If God be for us, nothing can be against us Deut. 11:22. When you are in love with God, He will make your enemies to be at peace with you Prov. 16:7.
THE ESSENCE OF OUR EXEMPTION RIGHTS BY REDEMPTION
The seal of our exemption in this world of darkness that is full of ups and downs is light. The word of God is light. When the heart of pharaoh was hardened, the Lord asked Moses to stretch forth his road against the land and there was gross darkness in the land of Egypt, but in Goshen where the children of Israel were, there was light Exo. 10:20-23. Egypt represents a life of unbelief and not having God but Israel represents the light in God’s word Isa. 60:1-3, Psa. 119:130.
The exemption mystery is hinged on three factors namely:
1. The mystery of the word.
2. The mystery of the communion.
3. Thye mystery of prophetic blessings.
The Mystery of The Word is The Foundation of The Covenant of Exemption. This is why it is important to always study God’s word in the bible. As you study the word, all forms of evil are dispelled. Sickness is dispelled. It is the word that is inside you that powers the anointing and makes the intake of the communion and the application of other kingdom mysteries to work for you.
Light from the word does not only enlighten us, it also illuminates us 1 Jn. 5:19, Matt. 5:14. When Jesus walked in the world, the powers of darkness could not stand in His presence. They knew that this was light and they cleared. As you carry the light of God’s word inside of you, every evil that sees you will clear off Jn. 1:5. We are supernaturally empowered to dominate the powers of darkness as you continuously walk in the light of God’s word.
The Mystery of The Communion is a key mystery of exemption. When you partake of the communion, we have access to the nature, personality and wonders in Christ Jn. 6:56. As you partake in the communion today, we are empowered to live like Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is risen from the dead and is seated far above principalities and powers and as joint heirs with Him, that is where we are also seated Phil. 1:9. As you take the flesh and blood of Jesus, you will dwell in Him and He in you Jn. 5:22. Our exemption from all the evils in this word is as a result of light on the inside of you. Jesus served the communion to the Apostles and that is why in their days, they were indestructible. We see this also in our days in the lives of men like Smith Wigglesworth and God’s servant, Bishop Oyedepo.
The Mystery of The Prophetic Blessings is hinged on the fact that God often send His prophet to proclaim His blessings upon His people, among which is the prophetic word of divine preservation Isa. 65:8. By a prophet, the Lord delivered the children of Israel out of Egypt and preserved them Hosea 12:13.
The beginning of love is the heart. The core of all that has been outlined above is the fact that one must be certain of his/her salvation before the issue of having genuine love for God can be considered. The first step to loving God is to give our life to God today or return back to Him if you previously did so before and then went back on the faith. As you give your life to Him and love Him genuinely, all of the wonders in the love covenant shall be made fully manifest in your life.
