THE KING, THE BRIDEGROOM AND THE JUDGE

Pastor Afolabi Oladele
Saturday, August 6, 2011. . . FASTING MEETING
Review:  The Standard We Are Called To Meet … In the view of JESUS… That we might be counted worthy according to the Words of JESUS… Scroll 51
The three faces of the LORD that will be manifested and emphasized in the unprecedented activities of the Holy Spirit at this end of time and each of us must be tied together that each of us must be able to identify as …
The King.                  -To Reign in and for us
The Bridegroom.        -To Reign with us
The Judge.                -To Rule for us
Matthew 2:5- JESUS is coming as the King and a King usually has followership… And the time is about to be here for our King and only those who have travailed with HIM are able to be partakers of HIS glory
We are looking for HIS ruler ship and it is only the body that will need a ruler
THE KING, THE BRIDEGROOM AND THE JUDGE
Ephesians 1:10- GOD’s overwhelming obsession in these times is that HE might fill this whole universe with the fullness of Christ … Everyone of us aspiring to be filled with CHRIST becomes an element of HIS filling…. GOD
Everyone seeking to be comforted with JESUS is giving GOD more pleasure than any other thing … The key thing that GOD is looking for is that HE might fill the whole world with the image of CHRIST and transform a people seeking after HIM … Everything that Paul did was an offshoot of Colossians 3:10- … When we are comforted to CHRIST, we are awakening he pleasures of GOD in Heaven that we are willing to do HIS bidding
Kingship has subjects, but, where do you fit in? As many as desire to fit into His Image are the ones that are close to His heart… 2nd Corinthians 5:17- … Romans 8:29- JESUS has chosen to become Firstborn among many Brethren that are like HIM … The LORD is willing to devolve into me as long as I am willing to be like HIM …
The LORD is willing to be KING  Hebrews 2:10- for those who are ready to be in the same likeness with HIM … Acts 7:55- … Stephen saw the LORD in HIS glory during the heat of his times…
To see the image of the LORD as Paul and Stephen did, we are to be willing to go with HIM the whole hog… The Kingship of JESUS is over a people who are with HIM and who are able to be transformed to be conformed into HIS image … Oh that I may be Abel to fall at HIS Feet and Cry, LORD, I am willing…
The first demand of the kingship is to be conformed into HIS image … When there are third fruits; it means there must have been other categories…, where do you belong…
THE BRIDEGROOM
The Response of Love as it applies to people of like passion …
Love ties the bridegroom to the bride… Mark 12:30- Hence, the first dimension to the transformation of a people to the ruler ship of the LORD in our lives is: do I love the LORD my GOD indeed? To be loved is to be obsessed with the object of your love … The obsession constantly makes you to dot over the object of your love …and to be full of it’s thoughts… E.g. GOD’s love for Adam, the man HE had made in the Garden of Eden… John 3:35- and John 5:20-; John 17:20-24 … Where I am going is that I may respond to GOD’s love as HE has demonstrated to me … GOD’s love triggered something in the life of the second Adam despite the fact that the first Adam missed…
The first trigger of my love is to set aside my own agenda for HIS … John 4:34- … If I say I love GOD, the demonstration of my love would be to make HID priority my priority … If I say I love JESUS, can I sincerely say that my response in all my aspirations seek to make HIS will my will? … Am I relating to GOD the same way JESUS responded to HIS FATHER?
Luke 7:32-  … Is it too much for GOD to ask me to relate with HIM the same way these people did … The woman with the Alabaster box of oil was not cognizance of the goings on around her… My love and compassion for CHRIST makes me to be blind to circumstances, things or people around me…  In the response of love, every other thing pale in comparison to the object of my love… In the moment I am in HIS Presence, my love for Christ shuts out every other thing …
Alabaster box of oil represents the handing over of the woman’s brood price …to her beloved … Thus foreclosing every other thing about her life … She completely sold herself out to her beloved, JESUS, it was an acclamation of you are my oil… She cut off completely all forms of desire for pleasure… The degree of my love for JESUS and the recognition of how much I am loved speaks to my degree of the worth of HIS Life that HE gave for me …
Divine Romance … Luke 10: 40+ . There is trouble when the heart doesn’t dot over the object of its love again … GOD was not obsessed with works … , start with what is important to GOD … Do I have the time for my lover to dot on my lover in face-to-face heart-to-heart communication … Do I respond to my lover on the way that HE wants me to respond??? This is to press on for the needle point …
These examples are particularly tied to the times of JESUS’ transition … And it was either the people had forsaken their pleasure or the things that matter to them … Luke 2:36- Anna, 84years widow, waited 60years, fasting, praying and worshipping at the temple for the appearing of JESUS. … Notice was given to the Church beforehand that the King would soon come; , what has been your response so far?
, what’s the priority in your heart? Notices of CHRIST’s coming are usually ushered in with ‘BEHOLD’ so that none of us will fail in the things that GOD is saying to us.. 2nd Peter 3:12- ; Titus 2:13- ; Hebrews 9:28- If I am not looking for JESUS, I won’t see HIM …, are you looking for JESUS with your love and priorities fully restored?
PRAYERS:
John 3:1- The love GOD has bestowed on us is to change our nature … It is the change in nature that leads to change of name … It costs GOD everything … HE lavished everything HE has, HIS Own Life just to get me… GOD could be asking me to give up something that is competing with HIS love in my heart … Be careful about unguarded rivalries … JESUS is coming as my Bridegroom, but if I am wanton in HIS love, then, something is competing for HIS love in my love?
Jabez did not change his name neither did GOD changed his name… HE only aligned his mind to the work GOD was about to do… That was the same thing that happened in the life of Abraham…  In loving GOD, there is a cost… Every relationship must be subject to GOD… If we don’t subject our relationships to GOD, then, we don’t love HIM…

Blind compromise is not loyalty
Riots, chaos follow when governments cannot respond to the needs of its people.

OUR GOD, OUR KING.  -Part One
As we await the coming of our LORD, we need to understand that the Bride are not the Virgins… The Virgins are mere attendants
Kiddushin and Nisuin (2)
All of us as believers have been in the Kiddushin all along … We are on the brink of partaking in the Nisuin
1. Is my love for the LORD consistent holding its place for me to wait long enough for HIM?
2. The issue the Church is faced with today is: What am I married to and what is uppermost in my heart?
3. It is important for us to see that the LORD set these things in the order that HIS appearance would take … Psalm 445:1- If we are reckoning ourselves to be the bride of CHRIST, there are thing sour attention must be taken away from …Isaiah 54:1-; 2nd Corinthians 11:2-
The main duty of the Virgins is to alert and meet the bridegroom and to also wait on the bridegroom … If the Virgins fail, the bridegroom comes in unannounced and the fatality is for the bride not to be alerted …
We’re speaking about being prepared for HIM and being expectant of HIS appearing … If you miss the second of CHRIST, what would have happened to all the years of waiting …
The Virgins had the same profession as Virgins ..but their Characters are different … We may all profess to be Christians …but the LORD knows those that are genuine … However, the proof of my love for CHRIST is in the appearance of e bridegroom… It was the folly of the foolish virgins that made them not to have extra oil … We have all the time to prepare for the coming of the LORD, but what are they doing with it? It is not a show to say I am waiting for the coming of the LORD …
This is the time to search my heart? What have I been storing towards the Day of the Coming of the LORD? The foolish Virgins hid under the instruments of … So, it was needful that the LORD brings other Sheep into the fold… Who then is e foolish and the wise Virgins…
Is my presence in the services for show? , what really is my life? The Day will show it?
The foolish don’t provide for the hereafter…, what is going on in my heart because that is where the oil is kept??? Exodus 35:14 … Is there continuous provision of CHRIST’s oil in your life? Zechariah 4:1-
My taste in life is dictated by the quality of the word of the word of GOD that I hear not by what I see… My heart is the place that the oil is stored…. The wisdom of the wise is that they keep the oil, the quality of the word of GOD in their hearts, while they wait for the bridegroom whose coming might tarry as HE prepared the other Sheep to come into HIS fold…
One step away, takes you all away … Matthew 25:5-; Luke 18:8- … No longer the delay of the coming of the LORD, HIS coming is sure… It is just a matter of submission… Wait for HIM, because HIS coming is sure and we need HIS light because JESUS is coming within the darkness that will envelope the earth…
Matthew 25:7- ; 2nd Peter 3:14- , be diligent … This is the day of search and enquiry … My soul must be carried out towards the LORD’s suitable biddings… It is at this point that the lamps of the hypocrites break out … The day is coming when carnal hypocrites would want to be found in the gathering of genuine Christians.. On such a day, brotherly love might not prevail… Those that would be saved must have grace of their own, yet, your individual sanctification must stand for you…
Matthew 25:10 … The door was shut to secure those that are within to be sure they would not go out anymore to be protected… And those that were shut out could no longer gain entry.., once the door is shut, the gulf of separation is fixed so that there can be no border-crossing… Our great duty is to watch to the saving of our soul…
Luke 12:35- There is no room to be inactive … To slumber … The people that cried the bridegroom cometh were not sleeping… No bride wants to be disgraced… Be awake , your being awake may be the salvation of those around you… Verses 33-34 , where is your treasure? Even though the Virgins were the ones who had the primary job to alert, I am not spared from the duty of watching …verses 37-38 …yet watching is not only the duty that they have…verse 41- … My duty is not only to watch but to also tell… The Judge is certainly coming; it is a matter of time… How will HE find me???
PRAYERS:
LORD show me where I am and where I belong… It’s not just about having the word… What do I believe? It’s not about having the lamp… How much of it is burning in my life …
Is any way that I am asleep, LORD, may this word be enough to wake me up in JESUS Name, Amen… It is worse when I am asleep and don’t know it… LORD, on any way I am falling short and not in my consciousness, help me LORD … JESUS, revive me Oh LORD … Even in the time of abundance, help me LORD …
