Scripture of the day

The Incredible power of God Sunday 23 March 2014

God's word - bible is not a religious book. Its the creator's manual to maximise the adventure on the earth - Go, stand and speak in the temple to the people all the words of this life. (Acts 5:20 KJV)

And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. (2 Timothy 3:15 KJV)

The book is for our profitable living, text for living- it is the book of current realities, it makes me connected to God and there will be proof that I am connected to Him! When you are rooted and grounded in God 's love I become a grant commander on the issues of life. But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. (1 Corinthians 2:9 KJV)
Everything is already prepared for you, when you love God nothing is being prepared, it is a finished business, that why Christ said it is finished, He meant it!my brethren everything is prepared for us, hallelujah, every case is finished already for us brethren, Christ's love for us has granted this!

1.The love of God in your heart is the fulfillment of the law, and when you fulfill the law, (Rom 13:8,10), you have unlimited breakthrough, the blessings of The Lord will flow into your life without limitation.
Deuteronomy 28:1-14 will come to pass in your life And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the Lord thy God, to observe and to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the Lord thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth: And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy God. Blessed shalt thou be in the city, and blessed shalt thou be in the field. Blessed shall be the fruit of thy body, and the fruit of thy ground, and the fruit of thy cattle, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep. Blessed shall be thy basket and thy store. Blessed shalt thou be when thou comest in, and blessed shalt thou be when thou goest out. The Lord shall cause thine enemies that rise up against thee to be smitten before thy face: they shall come out against thee one way, and flee before thee seven ways. The Lord shall command the blessing upon thee in thy storehouses, and in all that thou settest thine hand unto; and he shall bless thee in the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee. The Lord shall establish thee an holy people unto himself, as he hath sworn unto thee, if thou shalt keep the commandments of the Lord thy God, and walk in his ways. And all people of the earth shall see that thou art called by the name of the Lord; and they shall be afraid of thee. And the Lord shall make thee plenteous in goods, in the fruit of thy body, and in the fruit of thy cattle, and in the fruit of thy ground, in the land which the Lord sware unto thy fathers to give thee. The Lord shall open unto thee his good treasure, the heaven to give the rain unto thy land in his season, and to bless all the work of thine hand: and thou shalt lend unto many nations, and thou shalt not borrow. And the Lord shall make thee the head, and not the tail; and thou shalt be above only, and thou shalt not be beneath; if that thou hearken unto the commandments of the Lord thy God, which I command thee this day, to observe and to do them: (Deuteronomy 28:1-13 KJV) Till you discover His love, you have not discover the fulfilment in your life- the enemies that we need to overcome, the light we are asking, can only come through a deeper love for God! The enemies that are pursuing you, the only victory you can get is through love, for them to run away from you in 7 ways is because of you love for God
Tell your neighbour deepen your love for God and all the failures in your life will be turned to success! Fulfilment comes from discovering the love of/for God! The last failure you had was the last you will get, for love never fails - 1Corin 13:8

2. Your inheritance is packaged in the book, there is nothing you can do, you can't inherit what you don't love, and access to the love for God is shown through your commitment to the word of God,

And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified. (Acts 20:32 KJV)
In other words Paul is saying love the word of God and every inheritance due for the sanctified ones is flowing also to you, not only for eternal glory but also here on earth. You remember when Peter asked Jesus what they were going to have as they have followed Him, Jesus said;

Then Peter began to say unto him, Lo, we have left all, and have followed thee. And Jesus answered and said, Verily I say unto you, There is no man that hath left house, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my sake, and the gospel's, But he shall receive an hundredfold now in this time, houses, and brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands, with persecutions; and in the world to come eternal life. (Mark 10:28-30 KJV)

You don't loose when you follow Jesus, Peter thought ah we have left the boats & the nets what will become of us! You might be in the same situation today, where you can't see your future in terms of your financial breakthrough, marital problem, issues of life, health but Jesus is Lord always, He will turn that around! You might think you have suffered loss but God is the rewarder of them that seek Him diligently, (Hebrews 11:6), if your heart, soul mind & body is sold out to Jesus, you have one assurance, life full of glory! My life is glorious wo, I have nothing that troubles me because I know my Redeemer lives for ever! All other things are temporary, my Redeemer, my Holy One of Israel lives for ever! Glory, Christ in me the hope of glory, Colossians 1:27

The inheritance I am talking about is revelation limited and revelation is a function of love, till something's are revealed in your life you have no access to them and it's only love for God that gives you the platform to revelation,

Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you. (John 15:15 KJV)

No more secrets to the things of the Kingdom, a servant has no access to The Lord's things but a friend knows even where the Father has gone! Abraham was called a friend of God because of his sold out to God! David while he was a king could tap into the secrets of the heaven and prophecy about Christ's coming, 16 books of Psalms are Messianic books, where David was speaking/prophesying about Christ, how can a king prophecy, Yes, because of the love for God!
The world needs Presidents, Prime Ministers, leaders, MPs that can tap into the secrets of heaven and start to download and exercise it here on earth! What a world will it be????

He replied, “Because the knowledge of the secrets of the kingdom of heaven has been given to you, but not to them. (Matthew 13:11 NIV)
There are secrets that have been revealed to us and one of it is to share the love of God in this world & it will be a better place to live!
The depth of my love for God determines my access to revelation!

3. Faith works by love - For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision; but faith which worketh by love. (Galatians 5:6 KJV) faith can remain dormant if the catalyst is not added! My destiny comes by faith, faith works by love therefore my destiny is limited by my love for God!
1 Corin 13:1-3
Now look at this victory works by faith, faith works by love so victory works by love -
For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith. (1 John 5:4 KJV)
Prayer answers to faith, faith answer to love so prayer answers to love, without love, your prayer meanders in the thin air, because no matter your faith if there is no love, your faith is not solid, hence your prayers are not heard!

Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them. (Mark 11:24 KJV)

If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind. (James 1:5, 6 ESV)

So love is the power base of the believer, nothing works without love! The revelation of love is the greatest force on the earth! When you has got that revelation then everything else works! Every thing around you is controlled by love, even in life when there is no love there is no peace! When a family lacks love there will be always quarrels and backbiting, gossip and slandering! Just the same in the church!

The moment the spirit of lying start to crip into the Agape love that was functioning in the early church, it was flushed out quickly,

But a man named Ananias, with his wife Sapphira, sold a piece of property, and with his wife’s knowledge he kept back for himself some of the proceeds and brought only a part of it and laid it at the apostles’ feet. But Peter said, “Ananias, why has Satan filled your heart to lie to the Holy Spirit and to keep back for yourself part of the proceeds of the land? While it remained unsold, did it not remain your own? And after it was sold, was it not at your disposal? Why is it that you have contrived this deed in your heart? You have not lied to man but to God.” When Ananias heard these words, he fell down and breathed his last. And great fear came upon all who heard of it. (Acts 5:1-5 ESV)

It's up to you to deal with that hatred now quickly or continue to hold on to it, it will kill you! God forbid! Tell your neighbour stop lying! That lying spirit will destroy your love for God, do it as unto The Lord.
Some of the things we do we think we are clever but those things will come to hunt us, stop corruption before it corrupts you! Jesus' body saw no corruption because there was no corruption in His life!
Don't do things because others are doing it, it's a recipe for disaster! When you do something because others are doing it, you put yourselves under bondage or the talk of nowadays, you put yourselves into expenses that might even cost your life! The world is wicked!
If you can do it don't promise anything! Let the people know that you are a principled person! When you say I will be there for 1pm, don't be there @ 2pm that's unprincipled!
You might think you are doing it to man but no you are doing it for God - Jesus delivered what he had come to do here on earth!

I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do. (John 17:4 KJV)

After this, Jesus knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the scripture might be fulfilled, saith, I thirst. When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost. (John 19:28, 30 KJV)

Jesus loved the Father by taking the position of dying on the Cross, He loved the Father till the end! That's why I am confident that He who start a good thing in your life will finish! God works to finish, he doesn't leave things incomplete! Phil1:6, it might look like you are in complete but in God's eyes you are either complete or you are work in progress
I leave with this question, Do you really love God or you are having fun!
Loving God is a choice to make & is a choice of the wise!!

Father, give me the grace to discover your love for me & my love for you!
Reveal to me what I need to do to stay on the course, so that my faith, victory becomes real!
