HOMECELL TEACHING GUIDE – WEEK 49 OF 52
3 -10 DECEMBER 2017
SCRIPTURE REFERENCE: 1 JOHN 4:7-9
Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God…..”
Greetings family. Once again, this Sunday, we witnessed our Man of God (Pst Alph Lukau) operating in the power and authority of God by revealing the hidden secrets of certain people (through accurate prophesies) and exposing the works of Satan. God did extra-ordinary things at AMI, and as a result satanic chains were broken, and we thank God for the life of our Man of God, Pastor Alph Lukau; he is a blessing not only to AMI, but to the whole world. More than 300 people attended the International Visitors Programme (IVP) this weekend, coming from all parts of the world just to be imparted by our our Man of God. They were all astonished by the mighty move of the Holy Spirit throughout the weekend. There is no doubt that they will come back with testimonies soon, to the glory of the living God.
The purpose of church of God on earth has been tempered with, and it is the job of those who stand as the voice of God, to rectify the wrong so that all of us may realign and remain on the purpose set by God for the church. The reason why we come to church is because the church has been established by God for the sole purpose of giving him the glory and being the vessel through which God will use us (the church).
Regarding the above scripture, the Man of God (Pst Alph Lukau) said If I call you beloved, it is because I love you, though love is a strange word to use today because we have down-graded the love that God has for us and the church to mere lust. When you say to someone I love you, it means I lust over you. Beloved, love is bigger than lust. Love is of God, and everyone that loves is of God and knows God. This is not a simple word, but it is the word of purpose. We know people who stand tall, and we know people who jump high, etc but very few of us today have encountered people who have love.
In our churches today, we are jumping and feel that the Holy Spirit is present, though to jump is not a bad thing, but God wants to put things in context and bring us to the basics. What is spiritual goes beyond the simple jumping. You can dress white yet you have a black heart. What makes you holy is not the colour of your garment. Love is not a social thing, but it’s a spiritual thing. If you understand love, you will understand that love is higher than speaking in tongues. You can speak in tongues well but if you do not walk in love, you are not in God. Love is stronger than speaking in tongues. The bible says “If I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but do not have love, I have become a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal.” I have seen preachers who speak in tongues but yet they do not have love. Family, strong people in God are strong people in love.
The bible says “Dear friends, let us continue to love one another, for love comes from God.” Anyone who loves is a child of God and knows God. The devil will never lead you to love somebody. Satan can operate the miracles, but one thing he does not have ability to do, is to love because love is of God. Everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. Somebody testified that she used to be the wife of Lucifer before she came to Christ, that is a lie because Satan hates even his best demon. How do you know that someone is born of God? Is it because they were baptized in water? No, your level of love determines your level in God. To know God is not to write a book. Until you operate in Love, you do not know God. To know God goes beyond memorizing the bible or the time spent on your knees. To know God is seen in the level of love you have, do you love one another? In church today, many of us claim to be powerful, but they have no love, we compete with one another, we don’t talk with one another. From today, this has to be rectified. Family, be led by love in whatever you say or do. Love leads us to understand one another. It helps us to forgive one another. Everyone wants to be justified, but where is love? When love is established in the house of God we will stop competing with one another. Love one another, love those who greet or not greet you, even those who accept you as well as those who do not accept you. Jesus said “love your enemies.” He further said “the whole world will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”
Fridays: Please note that our Man of God is continuing with the preaching on how to defeat Satan, please make sure that you invite as many people as you can.
