In his teaching, Rev. Dunamis made mention of the following important points:
As a single, stop falling in love with more than one person at a time.
If you STAY with God, everything will be beautiful. But what happens most times is that we don’t want to stay with God; we want to follow our feelings and emotions.
However, you cannot survive in the realm of your feelings; you must come to the realm of reality.
When God communicates with you, He does not do it through your feelings; He does it through your spirit.
Your feelings would eventually become your decisions if your dwell there.
When you see terror and minimize it to fun, you are in deadly trouble.
In falling in love, the first order of things is to RENEW YOUR MIND. Your mind is everything.
The moment you start having more than one person in mind, confusion has set in. Stop falling in love with more than one person at a time.

Five Things About Falling In Love And Staying In Love
- Love Can Intoxicating
Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth– For your love is better than wine.Song of Solomon 1:2 (NKJV)
Love can can make you lose your mind. Before you taste the wine of love, make sure you are of age. Before you allow him/her to kiss you with the kisses of the mouth, make sure you are married.
Kissing awakens love, and when love is awakened at the wrong time, you will do the right things at the wrong time. Kissing and sex is good, but only within the confines of marriage.
As a single if you don’t learn how to wait then you are headed for doom. Waiting is powerful.
The place of maturity is the place of discipline – you tell yourself you won’t do this despite the urge to do it.
Kissing wakes up unnecessary feelings. Say no to kissing before marriage – it’s easier to kill the seed than attack the harvest.
Rev Dunamis ended the sermon by talking to the married couples on a few tips that will help them rekindle their love:
- Take yourselves out from time to time
- Keep speaking your love language
- Don’t stop wooing each other
- Forgive quickly
- Have a mentor over your marriage
