Open Heaven 6 June 2019 Devotional – Bed Undefiled, written by Pastor E. A. Adeboye

TOPIC: Bed Undefiled

MEMORISE:
“Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judges.” – (Hebrews 13:4).

READ: Proverbs 5:15-21 (KJV)
15. Drink waters out of thine own cistern, and running waters out of thine own well.

16. Let thy fountains be dispersed abroad, and rivers of waters in the streets.

17. Let them be only thine own, and not strangers’ with thee.

18. Let thy fountain be blessed; and rejoice with the wife of thy youth.

19. Let her be as the loving hind and pleasant roe; let her breasts satisfy thee at all times; and be thou ravished always with her love.

20. And why wilt thou, my son, be ravished with a strange woman, and embrace the bosom of a stranger?

21. For the ways of man are before the eyes of the LORD, and he pondereth all his goings.

Open Heaven 6 June 2019 – MESSAGE:

Whichever way you look at it, marriage is honourable, and this is why those who have rebelled against God in the sexual orientation want to cloak there dishonourable lifestyle with the honour God has bestowed on marriage.

Despite what the world is trying to turn it into, the institution of marriage will remains God’s perfect arrangement to meet the needs of companionship between a man and a woman who are adults. If discovering and choosing to love a person is beautiful and courtship is exciting, solemnising a union in a wedding ceremony is divine.

After a couple is join together in holy matrimony and God’s blessing are pronounced on them, they become partner in a sacred institution. The sanctity of marriage is not a figment of human imagination. God indeed designed marriage to be holy, and so it should be approached with great respect and due veneration. This is why today’s memory verse describe marriage as honorable and advises against defiling it, with a strong warning that God’s judgment will fall on anyone who indulges in sexual immorality in marriage.

Open Heaven 6 June 2019 Devotional by Pastor E. A. Adeboye

Another reason why God created the institution of marriage is the need to satisfy sexual desire within an environment of accountability and responsibility. God wants marriage couple to find sexual satisfaction in marriage (1 Corinthians 7:2). In His infinite wisdom, He provided marital sex a wise alternative to infidelity and sexual disorder. Today’s Bible reading says you should drink water out of your own cistern, meaning that sexual thirst should only be satisfied within the privacy of the marriage.

Furthermore, sexual body parts and sexual acts are not public property to be share with strangers (Proverbs 5:16?-17). “Strangers” in this context refers to anyone who has not “known” you through marriage (Genesis 4:1). Only within marriage did God bless uninhibited sexual joys (Proverbs 5:18?-19). Take note that God deliberately use the words “at all times” and “always” in Proverbs 5:19, to remove limit from a married couple’s sexual enjoyment of each other (1 Corinthians 7:3-5).

Brethren, please abstain from sex outside marriage, for God as promised to judge all fornicators and adulterers (Hebrews 13:4). Your momentary sinful pleasure is liable for eternal judgment, so ask yourself, is it really worth it (Proverbs 5:20)? He who created all things in heaven and earth for his own pleasure has every right to guide human affairs in conformity with His supreme purpose. Think on these things, and may God engrave them on the tablet of your heart in Jesus’ Name.

Open Heaven 6 June 2019 – PRAYER POINT:

Father, please uphold every marriage and let Your power reign in every home, in Jesus’ Name.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:
Leviticus 26, Jeremiah 50:2-16

HYMNAL:
Hymn 16 – God give us Christian homes

1. God, give us Christian homes!
Homes where the Bible is loved and taught
Homes where the Master’s will is sought
Homes crowned with beauty Thy love hath wrought
God, give us Christian homes
God, give us Christian homes.

2. God, give us Christian homes!
Homes where the father is true and strong
Homes that are free from the blight of wrong

God, give us Christian homes
God, give us Christian homes.

3. God, give us Christian homes!
Homes where the mother in queenly quest
Strives to show others Thy way is best
Homes where the Lord is an honoured guest.
God, give us Christian homes
God, give us Christian homes.

4. God, give us Christian homes!
Homes where the children are led to know
Christ in His beauty who loves them so
Homes where the altar fire burn and glow
God, give us Christian homes
God, give us Christian homes.

Open Heaven 20 June 2019 – More Than Conquerors

Published

Open Heaven 20 June 2019 – More Than Conquerors, written by Pastor E. A. Adeboye

TOPIC: More Than Conquerors

MEMORISE: “Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God” – (1 John 5:5).

READ: Revelation 12:9-11 (KJV)
9. And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world; he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

10. And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ; for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.

11. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.

Open Heaven 20 June 2019 – MESSAGE:

To conquer is to overcome and have domination over a person, territory or kingdom. It therefore follows that a conqueror or overcomer is someone who has been able to defeat or overpower a person, territory or kingdom to the point of surrender. The word ’conqueror’ is also a military term which describes a person who has come out victorious from a war or conflict situation. Who then is our adversary? The answer is found in Ephesians 6:12, which says:
“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”

Through this verse we understand that our greatest enemy is the devil and his kingdom. As mere mortals, it is absolutely impossible to consider overcoming the devil in any form of contest. However, we speak of being conquerors on the basis of God’s declaration concerning us in (1 John 4:4), which says that God in us is greater than anyone in the world.

Furthermore, we have the confidence to confront our enemies because God’s Spirit assures us in Roman 8:31 that if God is for us, no one can successfully stand against us. Indeed, regardless of the challenges we face in life, we are more than conquerors through the love of Jesus (Romans 8:36-37). Obviously, Jesus is the ultimate conqueror and overcomer. He fought for us, and through His conquest, we are more than conquerors, having obtained victory over the devil without having to fight him.

Today: Open Heaven 20 June 2019 – More Than Conquerors

The Bible records many examples of winners and conquerors, but the greatest of them all is our Lord Jesus Christ. He triumphed over the devil in two spectacular ways that are worthy of mention. Firstly, in Matthew 4:1-11, Jesus faced the devil in a most crucial contest of self-control, knowledge, wisdom and power, but He overcame, giving the devil a technical knockout through the power of God’s word. Secondly, the devil masterminded the unwarranted arrest, orchestrated the sham trial, and inspired the wicked execution of our Lord, not knowing that Christ would totally destroy him through His subsequent death and resurrection (Hebrews 2:14), (1 Corinthians 2:7).

Colossians 2:15 says,  “And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.”
When Jesus died, He went to hell, where He captured the devil and freed his captives. He paraded the devil and his cohorts in an open show of shame, confirming His supremacy over the kingdom of darkness. No matter how hopeless your situation may be or the fierceness of the battle against you, I decree that your enemies will be disgraced and you will be victorious, in Jesus’ Name.

PRAYER POINT (Open Heaven 20 June 2019):
Father, make my enemies submit themselves to Your presence in my life, and let every gate blocking my progress open unto me of their own accord, in Jesus’ Name.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:
Numbers 22, Lamentation 3:61-4:16

He’s coming to take me home.

CHORUS:
Jesus loves me and I love Him,
Together we rule the world

By His Blood, His Name, His Word.

8. Jesus loves me and I love Him,
We rule this world together
As He is so right now I am
Hear me shout Halleluyah.

CHORUS:
Jesus loves me and I love Him,
Together we rule the world

By His Blood, His Name, His Word.

9. Jesus loves me Halleluyah,

Glory be to God on high.

CHORUS:
Jesus loves me and I love Him,
Together we rule the world
Christ with me I will overcome
By His Blood, His Name, His Word.

Open Heaven 19 June 2019 – The Sure Antidote For Lack, written by Pastor E. A. Adeboye

TOPIC: The Sure Antidote For Lack

MEMORISE:
“The liberal soul shall be made fat: and he that watereth shall be watered also himself.” – (Proverbs 11:25).

READ: Luke 6:27-38 (KJV)
27. But I say unto you which hear, Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you,

28. Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you.

29. And unto him that smiteth thee on the one cheek offer also the other; and him that taketh away thy cloke forbid not to take thy coat also.

30. Give to every man that asketh of thee; and of him that taketh away thy goods ask them not again.

31. And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise.

32. For if ye love them which love you, what thank have ye? for sinners also love those that love them.

33. And if ye do good to them which do good to you, what thank have ye? for sinners also do even the same.

34. And if ye lend to them of whom ye hope to receive, what thank have ye? for sinners also lend to sinners, to receive as much again.

35. But love ye your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest; for he is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil.

36. Be ye therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful.

37. Judge not, and ye shall not be judged; condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned; forgive, and ye shall be forgiven;

38. Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.

Open Heaven 19 June 2019 – MESSAGE:

The greatest challenge confronting most people all over the world today is how to meet daily financial needs. In many cases, the inability to settle essential bills has led to broken homes, stress, sickness, mental illness and even suicide. Poverty seems to have driven a great number of misguided people into vices like gambling, prostitution, gangsterism, drug peddling, human trafficking and other serious illegal activities.

However, God is not unmindful of our financial situations and troubles; rather, He is moved by compassion to prosper His obedient children. God’s desire for His children to enjoy all-round prosperity is revealed to us in (3 John 1:2), which says: “Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.”
I keep telling my children that our Father’s ultimate desire is to see that we are all blessed. God wants us to dwell in His blessings and not live at the mercy of unbelievers. Indeed, the more wealth the Lord releases to us, the more His kingdom on earth will be expanded. Don’t believe those who tell you that you are not supposed to be wealthy as a follower of Christ.

This is a false doctrine. God’s word says that you are to lend to nations and not borrow (Deuteronomy 15:6) adding that His blessings make us rich and add no sorrow (Proverbs 10:22). The Bible also says in Psalm 35:27b: “Let the LORD be magnified, which hath pleasure in the prosperity of his servant”.

However, before you can take possession of your divine wealth, you need to use certain keys that will separate you from poverty and bring you to the realm of unprecedented riches in God. Luke 6:38 tells us that giving is the expressway to prosperity and the antidote to poverty, as it deals with poverty in a way that permanently eliminates lack in a person’s life (2 Corinthians 9:6). Let us establish some key points here. First and foremost, according to Luke 6:38, giving draws blessings to the giver. Secondly, while we are not expected to be frivolous with money, we must not conserve more than necessary, to the extent that it prevents us from fulfilling our obligations to God or helping the poor and needy. Proverbs 11:24 says:
“There is that scattereth, and yet increaseth; and there is that withholdeth more than is meet, but it tendeth to poverty.”
May God reward you abundantly for your past, present and future labour of love in His vineyard in Jesus’ Name.

PRAYER POINT:
Father, please help me to honour You with everything I have, in Jesus’ Name.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:
Numbers 20-21, Lamentation 3:25-60

HYMNAL:
Hymn 1 – There shall be showers of blessing1. There shall be showers of blessing;
This is the promise of love;
There shall be season refreshing,
Sent from the Saviour above.

CHORUS:
Showers of blessing,
Showers of blessing we need;
Mercy drops round us are falling,
But for the showers we plead.

2. There shall be showers of blessing;
Precious reviving again;
Over the hills and the valleys,
Sound of abundance of rain.

CHORUS:
Showers of blessing,
Showers of blessing we need;
Mercy drops round us are falling,
But for the showers we plead.

3. There shall be showers of blessing;
Send them upon us, Oh Lord!
Grant to us now a refreshing;
Come and now honour Thy Word.

CHORUS:
Showers of blessing,
Showers of blessing we need;
Mercy drops round us are falling,
But for the showers we plead.

4. There shall be showers of blessing;
O that today they might fall,
Now, as to God, we’re confessing,
Now as on Jesus we call!

CHORUS:
Showers of blessing,
Showers of blessing we need;
Mercy drops round us are falling,
But for the showers we plead.

5. There shall be showers of blessing;
If we but trust and obey;
There shall be seasons refreshing,
If we let God have His way.

CHORUS:
Showers of blessing,
Showers of blessing we need;
Mercy drops round us are falling,
But for the showers we plead.

Open Heaven 18 June 2019 – In Need Of Deliverance?

Open Heaven 18 June 2019 – In Need Of Deliverance?, written by Pastor E. A. Adeboye

TOPIC: IN NEED DELIVERANCE?

MEMORISE:
“How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.” – (Acts 10:38).

READ: Luke 4:18-21 (KJV)
18. The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,

19. To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.

20. And he closed the book, and he gave it again to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on him.

21. And he began to say unto them, This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears.

Open Heaven 18 June 2019 – MESSAGE:

Captivity describes the halted and confirmed state of an individual, community or nation by an external power. This term also denotes the state of people under the bondage of sin and demonic oppression. Only Jesus Christ has the power to set people free from all forms of captivity.

Deliverance happens when a person is rescued from forces of bondage or overwhelming circumstances such as danger, suffering and sin. Deliverance focuses on captives, prisoners of war, slaves, debtors, suspected criminals, condemned sinners and the oppressed, who are often treated with great cruelty and indignity. Another focus of deliverance is individuals dominated by forces of darkness.

Sadly, many people are suffering because they do not know they are in bondage or see that they need deliverance. Irrespective of the form of deliverance that is needed, the good news is that Jesus Christ was specially anointed for the purpose of setting captives and prisoners free. Isaiah 61:1-3 prophesized it, and we see the manifestation of its fulfillment in today’s Bible reading.

Living in oppression in especially pathetic because it is practically impossible for anyone in this state to make any progress in life or be delivered through self-help. Stagnation, disappointment, failure, fruitlessness, sickness and misfortune are all possible indications that a person needs deliverance. I prophesy to anyone experiencing such evil conditions that you shall be delivered today in Jesus’ Name.

There is hope for your deliverance because there is a powerful Saviour and Deliverer who is able and willing to deliver you – His name is Jesus. All power in heaven and on earth belongs to Him. Everyone and everything is subject to His authority; even demons are powerless before Him. Once He speaks, demon obeys, and at the mention of His Name, they flee and people are delivered.

Today: Open Heaven 18 June 2019 – In Need Of Deliverance?

Once again, I decree in the Name of Jesus, receive deliverance from every form of bondage now! Do you need deliverance? The first step is to accept Jesus as your Lord and Saviour and join a living church. You must then make every effort to avoid self-destructive acts of immorality and sin.

Finally, brethren, call upon the Name of Jesus by faith, relying on His word in Romans 10:13, which says:
“For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
Do this, and you will begin to enjoy the liberty that Christ gives. Halleluyah!

PRAYER POINT:
Father, please set me free from any evil captivity I am in today, in Jesus’ Name.
