Teens’ Open Heavens 25th October 2017 by Pastor Adeboye - Spiritual Adultery Forbidden!

Topic: Spiritual Adultery Forbidden! [Wednesday 25, October 2017]

Memorise: " For thy Maker is thine husband; the LORD of hosts is his name; and thy Redeemer the Holy One of Israel; The God of the whole earth shall he be called." - Isaiah 54:5

Read: Hosea 2:2-5

2 Plead with your mother, plead: for she is not my wife, neither am I her husband: let her therefore put away her whoredoms out of her sight, and her adulteries from between her breasts;

3 Lest I strip her naked, and set her as in the day that she was born, and make her as a wilderness, and set her like a dry land, and slay her with thirst.

4 And I will not have mercy upon her children; for they be the children of whoredoms.

5 For their mother hath played the harlot: she that conceived them hath done shamefully: for she said, I will go after my lovers, that give me my bread and my water, my wool and my flax, mine oil and my drink.

Bible In One Year: Luke 7-8. Hymn: Sing Hymn 5 - Oh Spread The Tiding Round

MESSAGE:

The relationship between God and humans can be likened to the relationship between a husband and his wife. God, who instituted marriage, patterned the relationship in marriage after His relationship with His people. This is why spiritual adultery is severely punished from time to time in the history of man and his interaction with his maker.

God is jealous, like a man can be jealous over the relationship of his wife with another man, when humans follow other gods besides Him(Exodus 20:5). Our Lord Jesus Christ also said that our love cannot be possibly shared between God and ephemeral things of this world (Luke 16:13). Serving God and mammon is spiritual adultery, punishable by rejection and shame.

Beloved, beware of spiritual adultery, stick to Jesus Christ, the Lover of your soul and He will do you good.

Prayer Point: Father, please forgive me of any spiritual adultery I might have committed against You and our spiritual matrimony. For Christ sake please do not reject me.
