Oh! How He Loved Us

14:30



Here's our last teaching. Enjoy!

Tonight is going to be FIRE. If you are not ready for what the Lord is set to do, it is never too late to be ready. There is going to be a transition into the REALM OF LOVE and we would be moving on the WINGS OF LOVE and we would be relating with the PERSON OF LOVE. The most beautiful thing is that we would never recover from this IMPARTATION OF LOVE. We would never return from this JOURNEY OF LOVE. It is a Journey of no return. We would stay. Then, what is the criteria of being a swimmer tonight? An open heart and a ready heart. For the psalmist had said;
"A broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise"
Because,
"The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit." Psalms 34:18

Please, I would love us to see and take these teachings beyond it being an online teaching. Besides, it is an impactation. For the Lord had said He wants to reach out to His people:
"I want my people to know HOW much I love THEM (Beyond human comprehension and imagination)"
"I am interested IN EVERYTHING about them"
"I don't want them to SHY AWAY from me"
"I am interested in their ALL. Even to their pains, worries, needs..."
"I want them to know, I am THEIR GOD, and that THEY ARE MY PEOPLE"
Saith the Lord.

Beloved, this is the message of Love to us, and I would admonish us to receive it with simplicity of heart, so he can communicate His Love to us and that we would experience the tangibility of His Love.

Tonight, The Spirit of the Most High would be instructing us of the topic, OH! HOW HE LOVED US.
"HOW"
Yes. Oh! Glory.
There is an HOW OF LOVE. This HOW makes us WHAOO! It is called the Wonders of Love. It shows the degree of Love. To tell us that I know the "HOW OF LOVE", I would be deceiving us. Because, It is more of an EXPERIENCE THAN OF TALKS. One thing I can assure you of tonight, is that-
You would experience Him (The Person of Love), for he would rally your world with LOVE.

In search to discovering the "HOW OF LOVE", I had Encounters that left me Experienced. To organize these experiences into words would be the greatest limitation of today. But tonight, By His grace, there would be Experience(s) and Encounter(s) beyond what words can describe. Amen!
If you BELIEVE IT, you would RECEIVE IT.

If you still doubt me, let's check out the Samaritan Woman. For she came with her WATER POTS, to draw WATER from the WELL. But she saw more than the WATER. She saw the WORD (The Person of Love). She swam in this OCEAN OF LOVE, that she left her WATER POTS and went her way to the City saying and witnessing to the people,
"Come and See a Man, which told me all things that I ever did" (John 4:29).

Soaked with the Encounters, she couldn't explain because what she experienced were not just TALKS, but A DEMONSTRATION- The Demonstration of Love. For she might have been ridiculed by men. For she might have been Rejected by men.
"Oh! See that prostitute coming", this  might have been the talk of people.

But she found Acceptance in Jesus. She found Safety in His Love. She was Clothed by the warmth of His Love. All she could say to the people was just;
"Come and See."
"Come and See for yourself"
"I can't explain it all"
"Come and see for yourself"
And that is what would be happening tonight.

We would not only talk Love, We would Experience and Demonstrate it.

OH! HOW HE LOVED US.

Of a truth, the Scriptures holds the most Powerful and Inspiring Love Stories, Encounters, Experiences and Demonstrations, I have ever seen and heard.

By His Grace, we would be discussing this Subject matter under two Outlines;

¶ LOVE IN THE SHADOW
¶ LOVE AS THE SUBSTANCE.


LOVE IN THE SHADOW.

Some People believed that the real bible starts from the New Testament.
[Smiles]

That is why they don't read the Old Testament. Well, that is never true.

Jesus said, "Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil." (Matthew 5:17)

He said, I am not come to DESTROY but to FULFILL. The Sincere Truth is that. There would never be anything like the New Testament, if there was no Old Testament. For what importance has the New Covenant without the Old Covenant? There is a New Testament because there was an Old Testament. And the two are not separate entity. The end of one led to the initiation of another. The Old Testament was full of PROPHECIES and PROMISES which the New Testament FULFILLED. The New Testament is the Fulfillment and express the experiential realities in the Old Testament.

Let's get right on track.

In the Beginning of the Beginnings, we could see a man called Adam on the scene which was an Intention and the Extension of God, of how God crowned him with Glory and Honor, how He made him in His image and after His likeness, how He gave him dominion and made all things subjected to him.

6) But one in a certain place testified, saying, What is man, that thou art mindful of him? or the son of man that thou visitest him?
7) Thou madest him a little lower than the angels; thou crownedst him with glory and honour, and didst set him over the works of thy hands:
(Hebrews 2:6-7).

Unfortunately, this man fell and derailed from God's will and pattern for his life. DOMINION, delivered to devil. He left his place and became enslaved.

Oh! I thought that should be the end- Case Closed. But no...

This would only bring about the Opening of New Pages and Chapters of Life. Gbam!!!!!

I thought that should be the end of the Disobedient Adam.
But, the Person of Love said no!

The Person of Love, Still went about searching and looking for the man who had failed Him.

For He asked;
"Where art thou" (Genesis 3:9)
"I left you here, I didn't meet you"
"What had happened to the DOMINION?"
"What happened?"

Adam, Say something.

The response of Adam was so nasty. I had thought Adam would receive instant murder. For I had read that, God is a consuming fire. But no...

Many had thought that the Lord, cursed Adam and Eve because of their disobedience.
No!

For my God did not curse them. He only related to them the resultant consequences of their disobedient actions. Lobatan (finish)!

The so-called curse, was not a curse but the result of of their actions and wrongdoings.

For what God would curse a man and still make provisions for eternal blessings? Despite all the odds, God still made coats of skins and clothed the disobedient Adam and Eve.

"Unto Adam also and to his wife did the Lord God make coats of skins, and clothed them." (Genesis 3:21).

What a God?

I submit to the record in Numbers 23:19- GOD IS NOT A MAN.

Time would fail us to talk about Israelites in Numbers 22-24, whom Balak seek to curse. He even employed the help of Prophet Balaam to curse Israelites. Instead of Balaam to curse them, he blessed them.

Isn't that funny? Why was it so?

Because there was a VOICE OF LOVE OVER THEM. For God hath said of them;
"Blessed is he that blesseth thee, and cursed is he that curseth thee." (Numbers 24:9b).

God told Elijah to arise and go to Zarephath to dwell there, For he has commanded a Widow there to sustain him (Elijah).

A widow?
Why a widow?
Why not another substantial family?

The truth is, God is more interested in what he would make out of you than what you are presently. It doesn't matter your Red Frowning Account. He is saying;
"Son/daughter, that is not the truth about you."
"For Gold and Silver are mine and the cattle upon a thousand hills and that is what you are."

Elijah went in the strength of the Word given to him and went indeed to Zarephath and met the widow and demanded for a little cake. With sincerity of heart, The widow told the prophet her plight.

"And she said, As the Lord thy God liveth, I have not a cake, but an handful of meal in a barrel, and a little oil in a cruse: and, behold, I am gathering two sticks, that I may go in and dress it for me and my son, that we may eat it, and die." (I Kings 17:12)

💥 That was the last meal.
💥 That was the last thing in the house.
💥 There was no hope of seeing the light of another day.
💥 The widow was hopeless and helpless.

She must have said;
Sir, I would have really loved to prepare you meal.
But, the little one that I have, I want to prepare it for My Son and I, and die.
For there is no hope for another meal.
No, not one.

But the Prophet, even though with the shadowy lens, still saw through and gave the Widow the MESSAGE OF LOVE.

13) And Elijah said unto her, Fear not; go and do as thou hast said: but make me thereof a little cake first, and bring it unto me, and after make for thee and for thy son.
14) For thus saith the Lord God of Israel, The barrel of meal shall not waste, neither shall the cruse of oil fail, until the day that the Lord sendeth rain upon the earth.
15) And she went and did according to the saying of Elijah: and she, and he, and her house, did eat many days.
16) And the barrel of meal wasted not, neither did the cruse of oil fail, according to the word of the Lord, which he spake by Elijah.
2 Kings 17:13-16

I am glad the Widow yielded to the call of Love.
I am glad she listened to the Message of Love.
For that was where her transformation lies.

The transforming WHEELS OF LOVE gave her SURPLUS for her SCARCITY.

Is someone in the house still thinking that hustling and struggling are the terms of the Kingdom?

"My hustle go pay, one day"

Why would you hustle and struggle in a world and system that has been given to you to DOMINATE?

Or you still feel satisfied Eating the Crumbs that Falls From the Table?

If this is so, what then is the place of Psalms 23:5?
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
Why not come into the LOVE REST that this widow experienced even when the Person of Love was veiled from her eyes?

To continue with;

The son of the Widow died. She was devastated. She lamented.

"And she said unto Elijah, What have I to do with thee, O thou man of God? art thou come unto me to call my sin to remembrance, and to slay my son?" (1 Kings 17:18)

She had thought, God was punishing her for her sins. But, the Voice of Love hath said,
"And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more." (Hebrews 10:17)

Do you know that, that is just the same way Devil speak to your heart? And even try to convince you to believing that;
👉 God hates you,
👉 God doesn't love you and that was why you didn't gain admission.
👉 That was why your mum had died.
👉 That was why your your finance had been unstable.
👉 That was why you had been failing academically.
👉 That was why your business had been slowing down.

Come on! Come up higher beloved! That is a shit. A shit from the pit of hell. A shit to cheat you of your inheritances in the Kingdom of Love. Sons are not meant for SHIT, they are meant for SHIFTS.

The truth is, God is ever jealous of you. His protective and providing eyes has never left you. See it for yourself;

28) And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.
29) My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand.
(John 10:28-29)

6) Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings, and not one of them is forgotten before God?
7) But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows.
(Luke 12:6-7)

Devil has nothing to offer you but FALSEHOOD AND LIES.
"For he is the father of Lies and the truth is not in him." (John 8:44)

Thank God for LOVE, that brought the Widow's son to life.

"And the Lord heard the voice of Elijah; and the soul of the child came into him again, and he revived." (1 Kings 17:22).

My God is too faithful to fail.


LOVE AS A SUBSTANCE.

God is Love. He created us as LOVE BEINGS to live in a REDEEMED LOVE WORLD, so we can experience and communicate HIS LOVE. But, a man that doesn't know this, won't experience this. Our Knowledge is our Experience. Love is the reason we could call God, Father. Love is the reason we could chant, Abba Father.

"Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not." (1 John 3:1).

But the most painful thing is that;
Lots of persons are still relating with the FATHER as a SLAVE and not A SON. It is as though choosing to eat from the crumbs of the table that has been prepared for you.

How painful it is! God help us.

Zaccheus was a man of short stature, with all limitations that could have prevented him from encountering the Person of Love. He didn't know why he needed to see Jesus, but he longed to see him. He didn't know what his fate would be, but he desired to see him. There was a longing. There was a craving. All Glory to my Father, who gives grace to the humble. Zaccheus longings and cravings touched Him. And He longs to SAVE the man who longs to SEE HIM (Person of Love). He called out to Him;

"And when Jesus came to the place, he looked up, and saw him, and said unto him, Zacchaeus, make haste, and come down; for to day I must abide at thy house." (Luke 19:5)

Alot of people murmured and complained.

"He is going to dine with  a man who is a sinner"

I said it earlier, God is not handicapped by your present situations. He would still reach out to you regardless of what it is. He is more interested in what he wants to make out of you, if you would allow him.

In Zaccheus case, the talks of the people did not move Him. For LOVE IS NO RESPECTER OF PERSONS. At last, he said to humble Zaccheus

"This day is Salvation come into this House"
(Luke 19:9).

The Space of now would fail me to talk about;
👉 Blind Bartimeaus,
👉 The woman with the issue of blood,
👉 The 10 lepers,
👉 The centurion servant,
👉 The lame man at the beautiful gate,
👉 Saul who became Apostle Paul etc.

And all were healed and transformed after the Encounter with the Person of Love.

Love begat Redemption.
Love begat New creations.
Love begat Prosperity.
Love begat Healing.
Love begat Rest.
Love begat The Church.
Love made us Sons.
(Add yours, the list is endless)

Conclusively, resurrection, ascension and enthronement were made possible because of Love. The Power of Resurrection is the Power of Love. After Jesus's death, He was Resurrected by the Power of Love. For He is no longer in the tomb. He had changed address several years ago. He is now living in the SONS. Resurrection lives in the SONS.
Gloreeeyyyyyyyyy!

 And that is why;
🔥 Things can't die in your hands.
🔥 Your business can't die. It has no choice but to thrive.
🔥 Your health can't fail.
🔥 Your Academics prospers.
🔥 Your loved ones are kept in him.

For he has Resurrected. No more dry bones. No more! It all ended on the cross. You have been translated. The Party of Translation took place on the CROSS.

"Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son" (Colossians 1:13)

You are no longer where death exist.
You are no longer where pain exist.
You are no longer where sorrows exist.
You are no longer where retardation exist.
You are no longer where regression exist.
You are no longer where depression exist.
You are no longer where dejection exist.
(Name it)

For you are loved and that is why you can say;

"O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?" (1 Corinthians 15:55)


"Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the JOY THAT WAS SET BEFORE HIM, endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God." (Hebrews 12:2).

What was this joy that was set before him?

You are the one. You are the Joy
Oh!
"I am going to the Cross because of Victoria."
"I am going to the Cross because of Nelson."

You are the reason he was Born, Died, Resurrected, Ascended and Enthroned. You are. Gloreeeyyyyy!!!

The only Criteria for Encountering and Experiencing this Love is Seeking to Know His Love.

Do you seek to know him?

For that is the place of Coming into it. Don't be Normal with the Normalities of Life. Don't be Regular with the Regularities of Life. You have been birthed to experience his Love. To enjoy His Love and not to endure.

"That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death;" (Philippians 3:10)

The Power of his Resurrection, Fellowship of his Sufferings and Conformity to His death were all made possible through THE PERSON OF LOVE.

Do you seek to know Him? Seek Him and come into his Love by accepting His Love for your Life and coming to an end of yourself and struggles. Don't be too satisfied with the satisfaction that comes from the World.

Seek to know Him, to come into His Love. Seek to know His Love as Inscribed in His Word. His Word is His Love

THE MESSAGE OF THE CROSS IS THE MESSAGE OF LOVE.
I love this family.
I pray the Lord minister to our hearts beyond Words spoken in Jesus Name.

Amen.
