God’s insurance policy: The rewards are exceedingly great!

By Dr. Abayomi SANUSI, ======
Numbers 23.19, John 3.16

The desire for safety, stability, and confidence for the future is fundamental to human beings, and provides the basis cleverly exploited by the insurance industry. There is an insurance product for almost anything! True and unfailing assurance of safety, stability and confidence for for the future stretching to eternity, can however only be found in God.

In this month of exceeding great rewards I pray that your hope, faith, trust in God and work for Him will be reciprocated with great and lasting recompense with fantastic testimonies following in Jesus’ name.

Insurance policies provide a means to guarantee compensation against losses or undesirable occurrences. They are a non-divine promise of safety, stability, and confidence for the future! Many people loathe insurance companies. Among other things opinions regarding insurance are shaped by unpleasant experiences, expectation of poor service, perception of insurance as burdensome requirements of the law. Some companies are even perceived as masters at worldly cunningness to unjustly amass wealth, at the expense of acceptable moral practice.
It is unsurprising therefore that many do not to bother with details of their insurance policy details!

Do you have a spiritual insurance policy with God? Do you know the policy details: terms, conditions, your obligations and rights?

Components of an Insurance Contract
A typical insurance policy is contained in a respectable, good-looking jacket, and consist of seven components: (1) Declarations: a statement of who is providing the insurance to whom, within limits of a specified duration. (2) Definitions: the dictionary of all terms used in the contract. (3) Agreement: the binding statement of promise enumerating the perils and risks, the full description of actual coverage. (4) Exclusions: A statement of the situations and factors that make insurance non-applicable. (5) Conditions: Rules of conduct of the insured, detailing the duties and obligations of the insured- absence of which may lead to forfeiture of coverage. (6) Endorsements: Subsequent or additional conditions (further exclusions or modifications) not found in the original conditions. This can be a tricky minefield, but typically caters for the interest of the insurer. (7) Policy Riders: Further amendments and conditions.

The worldly insurance arrangement has benefits, provides employment and business. Things can get messy and complicated. There can be disputes about roles, responsibilities, and so on. You never get that with God. In fact in the world the sacredness of caring is commodified; there is punishment of weakness and vulnerability. God’s arrangement is entirely different.

Corruptibility of worldly insurance
Commercial insurance is a bet where the insured person bets against their insurer that the defined unfavourable events will happen to them, forcing the insurer to pay. The insurer counter-bets hoping the unfavourable events never happen; or where such happen, that the insured would be at fault by items of the exclusions, conditions, endorsements or policy riders. The insurer is not obliged to actively prevent calamity, or interfere with the future. The sole intention is maximum profit.

What the world has overlooked
The world has forgotten to insure against the possibility that God is waiting for all created beings in the afterlife! They shall all stand before the throne of judgement. They risk calamity without assurance of eternal life.

The Christian facts: God’s insurance
God our insurance broker and provider, is also the underwriter of our destiny. The insurance policy He offers is immutable, perpetually unchanging. His dictionary- the everlasting word of God- is straightforward and unambiguous. Nothing is subject to change without prior notification. Declarations of your spiritual insurance are straightforward, unambiguous, and understandable. Unlike worldly insurance policies all exclusions, endorsements, and policy-riders are entirely in the Christian’s favour.

What God’s insurance policy says
➡➡Believe God and you will have life. John 3.16-18. Out of love God gave his only son, so that through him believers are indemnified against perdition.
➡➡God takes all kinds of uncleanliness seriously. In Leviticus 15:1-12, we see an illustration of the particular attention, and the symbolic cleansing with water in case of accidental fault . God will allow no uncleanliness or sin. That principle resonates throughout His word, and holds true today. Deuteronomy 23:14. For the Lord thy God walketh in the midst of thy camp, to deliver thee, and to give up thine enemies before thee; therefore shall thy camp be holy: that he see no unclean thing in thee, and turn away from thee.
➡➡Your redemption is by the holy lamb of God without blemish, so keep your conversations, conduct and life holy. 1 Peter 1.18-21. Only a holy life is worthy of the precious blood of Christ who died without blemish or spot.
➡➡Our obligation is to stay holy and without blemish. 1 John 1.7, Revelations 1.5, Hebrews 9.14, Revelation 12.11, Acts 20.28, Hebrews 9.22
➡➡Coverage: Your life now; all concerning your spiritual well being, family, spouse, children, health and physical well-being, career, extended family and friends, future. No exclusions. We are invited to think of the afterlife.
➡➡God never fails in His promises: There may be trouble times ahead, but God promises to keep a register of His own in the grand insurance registry, The book of life, and deliver those insured with Him. He will keep us from evil. He will give us an expected end. We will glorify him. We shall never be disappointed.

Some Policy Declarations, Endorsements and Agreement
Daniel 12.1 And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.
John 17:11. And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are.
2 Thessalonians 3:3. But the Lord is faithful, who shall stablish you, and keep you from evil.
Jeremiah 29:10. For thus saith the LORD, That after seventy years be accomplished at Babylon I will visit you, and perform my good word toward you, in causing you to return to this place. {29:11} For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. {29:12} Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you. {29:13} And ye shall seek me, and find [me,] when ye shall search for me with all your heart. {29:14} And I will be found of you, saith the LORD: and I will turn away your captivity, and I will gather you from all the nations, and from all the places whither I have driven you, saith the LORD; and I will bring you again into the place whence I caused you to be carried away captive.

Just call me, I do not disappoint. You’ll see. Psalm 50:15. And call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me.

Your investment, hope, expectation and future will not be foiled! Your insurance will not be invalidated, or cancelled. Proverbs 23:18 For surely there is an end; and thine expectation shall not be cut off.

God desires more fantasticaly good things for us in this life and beyond. He wants us to understand he is on our side at all times. He came for us, He left for us, he is waiting for us. John 10:10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have [it] more abundantly. John 14:1-4 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.

Regardless of the terms, conditions, exclusions, policy riders or endorsements, God refuses to exclude His children. He encourages us to come unhindered, and claim grace, mercy and help! Hebrews 4.16 Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need

He can and will deliver beyond your expectation. God can only surprise His subscribers in a pleasant and positive way. Exodus 15.1-3. (1)Then sang Moses and the children of Israel this song unto the Lord, and spake, saying, I will sing unto the Lord, for he hath triumphed gloriously: the horse and his rider hath he thrown into the sea. (2) The Lord is my strength and song, and he is become my salvation: he is my God, and I will prepare him an habitation; my father’s God, and I will exalt him. (3) The Lord is a man of war: the Lord is his name.

It is all about relationships.
It is all about relationships. God is putting himself and his word out, promising to be our safety, stability, and confidence for the future. He wants us to understand that His name is a strong tower, into where we can run and be assured of safety.

God never lies, and will always honour the contract, without changing the terms midway through the contract. Numbers 23.19 God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?

Customer services are excellent. You will never be left confused, incommunicado or abandoned. John 15.26-27 But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me: And ye also shall bear witness, because ye have been with me from the beginning.

Have you taken God’s insurance policy? Are you abiding by His terms and conditions? Do you know what the word says about your obligations, rights and privileges? Are you paying your premium? He wants your heart! Do you want to take a chance with God today?
