Encounters of Love (pt 1)

It’s a journey of heaven kissing the earth! 
A journey that began in eternities in a realm that supercedes our world,  long before time was ever created experienced in the confines of the hearts of men. Mankind has never known what kind of love was unfolding, he has never known what love truly means, he has never interpreted what love was accurately, he has never understood love. 

Until  God revealed himself in Christ Jesus, the revelation of His love was made plain.  God revealed the Son in the light of revealing Himself to mankind, Jesus Christ brought the revelation of the Father and behold our imagination and perspectives on love was redefined because the Father is Love Himself. God is love – – not as an attribute! God is love – – His personality, that’s who He is. God is Love Personified! 

My personal encounters of love started in small corner of a cafeteria in Mellanby hall, University of Ibadan. It was a faithful night, I was just out there to fellowship with the Father. Just fellowshipping and it hits me hard like a meteorite fiercely crushing into the earth crust creating paths of  archeological excavation for exploring the artifacts of His love, the walls around my heart were broken-down and shattered and its veil torn apart, its shell cracked open! My heart was bubbling and it’s rippling effects like melting chocolates. 

His love spring up in my heart like the finest and purest water! It hits me hard like a missile that shattered and brought down strongholds in my heart. Words are not enough to communicate and explain what I felt that night, I was enveloped in something bigger than me like I was in the depth of the ocean, then it occurred to me that God loves me – – it was a knowing on my inside. It hits me so much the reality of the love of God popped open before me – I came face to face with the reality of his love for me. I was too sure He loves me, my whole being was surged up in his love and I began to realize what his love meant for me. 

And this is his love revealed – – that He sent is only begotten Son for me– for me! In that experience, I realized He did everything for me from start to finish. I could barely hold-up myself, whether I was in the spirit or in the body, I can’t tell, then I lifted my voice to sing a love song in the reality of his love for me. 

“Yes Jesus loves me

Yes Jesus loves me

For I now verily know”

Not because the Bible tells me any longer… It has now become a working knowledge – revelation! 

There was a shift in my heart that night like the shifted tectonic plate of the earth when it quakes, the molten magma of his love erupted from my heart fiercely. 

He loves me fiercely– oh what a great love. He’s not going to stop at anything to show that He loves me. Nothing could stop His love for me– My sins, shortcomings and imperfections were no where to be found in the face of His love – – everything was perfect! In his love everything is perfect – – I’m perfect in his love!

His love was more real than my face. That experience was so real – – I knew I was never the same again– I knew something about me changed forever that night – – I knew something in the depths of my spirit, soul and body shifted – – I’ve never been the same again. 

Little did I know it was an invitation into deeper waters of His love. Stay tuned! This is just the beginning. 

God’s Love: Undeserved (1)

we were in disobedience 

We were rebellious 

We cheated ourselves 

We were all about ourselves 

We were unloveable 

We were utterly helpless 

We abandoned God

We desecrated His plans

We were dead in our sins

We violated His decrees 

We were of no use to Him

We were utterly useless 

We were buried in our weaknesses 

We were totally empty beings 

We thought only of ourselves  

We were outcasts 

We had no good in us 

We were enemies of God 

We were addicted sinners, ugly to the core

We were the deprived 

We pushed Him away 

We rejected Him 

We didn’t have life for we were dead – separated from our source 

We were ragged  in unrighteousness 

We had no place with Him

Jesus died for us! 

He took upon Himself our depravity and sins and shame and lack and weaknesses and took our place. 

He died in our stead! 

He didn’t wait for us to be perfect! 

He didn’t wait for us to get it all together! 

He selflessly sacrificed all for us! 

He didn’t for once consider our weaknesses and mistakes! 

And only Love could make way 

You gave your life in a beautiful exchange ” 
His love is higher than your failures 

His love is deeper than your sins

His love is wider than your mistakes 

His love is greater than your imperfections
