Topic: Everyone Has Enemies (Open Heaven 3 December 2020)

Memorise: But if thou shalt indeed obey his voice, and do all that I speak; then I will be an enemy unto thine enemies, and an adversary unto thine adversaries. – Exodus 23:22

Open Heaven 3 December 2020

Read: Psalm 7:1-11 (KJV)

1 (Shiggaion of David, which he sang unto the LORD, concerning the words of Cush the Benjamite.) O LORD my God, in thee do I put my trust: save me from all them that persecute me, and deliver me:

2Lest he tear my soul like a lion, rending it in pieces, while there is none to deliver.

3 O LORD my God, if I have done this; if there be iniquity in my hands;

4 If I have rewarded evil unto him that was at peace with me; (yea, I have delivered him that without cause is mine enemy:)

5 Let the enemy persecute my soul, and take it; yea, let him tread down my life upon the earth, and lay mine honour in the dust. Selah.

6 Arise, O LORD, in thine anger, lift up thyself because of the rage of mine enemies: and awake for me to the judgment that thou hast commanded.

7 So shall the congregation of the people compass thee about: for their sakes therefore return thou on high.

8 The LORD shall judge the people: judge me, O LORD, according to my righteousness, and according to mine integrity that is in me.

9 Oh let the wickedness of the wicked come to an end; but establish the just: for the righteous God trieth the hearts and reins.

10 My defence is of God, which saveth the upright in heart.

11 God judgeth the righteous, and God is angry with the wicked every day.

Bible In One Year: 2 Corinthians 1-4

Open Heaven 3 December 2020 Thursday MESSAGE:

It is always funny to me when I meet people who think they do not have enemies. As long as you are alive, you have enemies. If you think because you have nothing for anyone to envy, you don’t have enemies, it means you have not yet read Proverbs 14:20 which says that the poor is hated by his own neighbour. If because you are rich and successful, you think that you have no enemies, you must be joking. Many years ago, one first-class chief invited me to his palace and he said I don’t know why I have so many enemies; can you help me? I responded Your majesty, everybody wants to be number one. Only a few people pray for the person who is in the number one position. Thank God because while the enemies are plotting at night, you have a God who never sleeps nor slumbers watching over you.

Even though you have enemies, I don’t want you to worry about them because your God is bigger than them all put together. In Psalm 23:5, David said:

“Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.”

God prepares your table not behind, but in the presence, of your enemies. The enemies were there, they were alive, but God paralyzed them. They could not come near David. This is because David knew how to use the most potent weapon against enemies – praises to God. The Bible says in Psalm 68:1:

“Let God arise, let His enemies be scattered: let them also that hate Him flee before Him.”

How do you make God arise? Through praise and worship. Psalms 22:3 says He inhabits the praises of His people. In other words, when one of His children is praising Him, He will get up to stay with the fellow. As He is rising, all the enemies of that fellow will scatter. That is why I don’t lead people in prayers to bind demons before every service. Instead, I say Let somebody shout Halleluyah. The moment God hears us shouting Halleluyah, He arises to come to our midst and all our enemies scatter. In 2 Chronicles 20:21-22, when three great enemies came against Jehoshaphat, all he and his people had to do was to praise God and the enemies helped kill one another.

Open Heaven 3 December 2020 Thursday Key Point

Everyone has enemies, but the enemies of those who praise God are powerless.

Open Heaven 3 December 2020 Thursday Hymn 19: My Hope Is Built On Nothing Less

  1. My hope is built on nothing less
    Than Jesus’ blood and righteousness;
    I dare not trust the sweetest frame,
    But wholly lean on Jesus’ name.

Refrain:
On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand;
All other ground is sinking sand,
All other ground is sinking sand.

  1. When darkness veils His lovely face,
    I rest on His unchanging grace;
    In every high and stormy gale,
    My anchor holds within the veil.
  2. His oath, His covenant, His blood
    Support me in the whelming flood;
    When all around my soul gives way,
    He then is all my hope and stay.
  3. When He shall come with trumpet sound,
    Oh, may I then in Him be found;
    Dressed in His righteousness alone,
    Faultless to stand before the throne.

Open Heaven 2 December 2020 Wednesday Daily Devotional By Pastor E. A. Adeboye – Divine Favour

Click HERE for Previous Open Heaven Devotional

Topic: Divine Favour (Open Heaven 2 December 2020)

Memorise: The LORD make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee: – Numbers 6:25

Read: Numbers 6:22-26 (KJV)

22 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

23 Speak unto Aaron and unto his sons, saying, On this wise ye shall bless the children of Israel, saying unto them,

24 The LORD bless thee, and keep thee:

25 The LORD make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee:

26 The LORD lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.

Bible In One Year: 1 Corinthians 15-16

THE WONDERS OF DIVINE ENCOUNTER By PASTOR E.A. ADEBOYE

Open Heaven 2 December 2020 Wednesday MESSAGE:

What is favour? The Yorubas describe it aptly as ‘a good face’. That means there are two kinds of faces – a bad face and a good one. I am sure you know that when a person is angry, no matter how beautiful or handsome, he/she will begin to look like an angry lion. Everything changes – the nostrils flare, the lips thin out and the whole face generally turns bad. But when people who are ordinarily not considered good-looking smile, somehow their beauty will come out. In Numbers 6:24-26, the Almighty God said that whenever His priests want to bless the people, they should speak thus:

“The LORD bless thee, and keep thee: The LORD make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee: The LORD lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.”

When God lifts His eyes in your community, sees you and smiles, that is what is called favour. The Almighty God is going to smile on you today in the mighty name of Jesus.

Now, if you find favour with God, what can you expect? Somebody once said that a single encounter with divine favour is worth more than a lifetime of labour. In Luke 5:1-7, Peter fished all night and caught nothing, but just one sentence from God changed everything. You may have been struggling for so long with nothing to show for it; you will find favour with God today in the mighty name of Jesus. Romans 9:16 says:

“So then it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that sheweth mercy.”

This passage tells us that the height you get to in life is only determined by the favour of God. Nobody can go higher than the favour of God permits.

God’s favour gives life. Psalm 30:5 says:

“For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.”

Favour singles you out for special attention. The man at the pool of Bethesda was singled out for a miracle (John 5:5-8). I pray God will favour you today and single you out for great miracles in the mighty name of Jesus.

Open Heaven 2 December 2020 Wednesday Prayer Point:

Father, smile on me today!

Open Heaven 2 December 2020 WednesdayHymn 24: Pass Me Not, O Gentle Saviour

  1. Pass me not, O gentle Savior,
    Hear my humble cry;
    While on others Thou art calling,
    Do not pass me by.

Refrain:
Savior, Savior,
Hear my humble cry,
While on others Thou art calling,
Do not pass me by.

  1. Let me at Thy throne of mercy
    Find a sweet relief;
    Kneeling there in deep contrition,
    Help my unbelief.
  2. Trusting only in Thy merit,
    Would I seek Thy face;
    Heal my wounded, broken spirit,
    Save me by Thy grace.
  3. Thou the spring of all my comfort,
    More than life to me,
    Whom have I on earth beside Thee,
    Whom in Heav’n but Thee.

Open Heaven for 1st December 2020 – Commit Your Plans To God

Open Heaven for 1st December 2020

Open Heaven 1 December 2020 Tuesday Daily Devotional By Pastor E. A. Adeboye – Commit Your Plans To God

Click HERE for Previous Open Heaven Devotional

Topic: Commit Your Plans To God (Open Heaven 1 December 2020)

Memorise: A man’s heart deviseth his way: but the LORD directeth his steps. – Proverbs 16:9

Read: Proverbs 19:20-21 (KJV)

20 Hear counsel, and receive instruction, that thou mayest be wise in thy latter end.

21 There are many devices in a man’s heart; nevertheless the counsel of the LORD, that shall stand.

Bible In One Year: 1 Corinthians 12-14

Open Heaven for 1st December 2020

Open Heaven for 1st December 2020 Tuesday MESSAGE:

It is not wise to start planning for something when you are already in it. Some people plan their year in the beginning of the year; no wonder they hardly achieve anything meaningful in that year. You cannot begin to plan for a battle when you are already in the midst of it. Have you ever seen someone planning their own wedding on the wedding day? Or begin to study for an examination in the exam hall when question papers are already being distributed? Why then do you wait until the new year before you begin to plan for it?

Now, if I were to ask to see your plan for the year 2021, would you have something to show me? Note that I said ‘show me’ and not ‘tell me’, because I believe that any serious Christian will live by Habakkuk 2:2 which says:

“And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it.”

If you would not have anything to show me, then you need to go to the drawing board and do a proper plan for the year 2021.

Having established the need for you to plan ahead of the new year, it is important that you commit those plans to the hands of God. Before you were formed in your mother’s womb, God had a plan and agenda for your life. It does not matter how meticulous your plan is, if it is not in line with His agenda for you, you may end up struggling to get your footing in the new year. Let Him know that all you care about is that His will is done and nothing else. Tell Him, just like our memory verse says, that you may have planned your way, but you need Him to direct your steps. God is not responsible for whatever is not committed to his hands; if you say you know exactly what you want to do in the new year and you don’t need His help, He will simply stand back and watch. But if you call on Him to direct your footsteps, He will take you to greater heights and help you far beyond your imaginations.

Open Heaven for 1st December 2020 Tuesday Key Point:

In year 2021, put God’s will above yours, always.

Open Heaven for 1st December 2020 Tuesday Hymn 5: Deeper, Deeper In The Love Of Jesus

  1. Deeper, deeper in the love of Jesus
    Daily let me go;
    Higher, higher in the school of wisdom,
    More of grace to know.

Refrain:
Oh, deeper yet, I pray,
And higher every day,
And wiser, blessed Lord,
In Thy precious, holy Word.

  1. Deeper, deeper, blessed Holy Spirit,
    Take me deeper still,
    Till my life is wholly lost in Jesus,
    And His perfect will.
  2. Deeper, deeper! though it cost hard trials,
    Deeper let me go!
    Rooted in the holy love of Jesus,
    Let me fruitful grow.
  3. Deeper, higher, every day in Jesus,
    Till all conflict past,
    Finds me conqu’ror, and in His own image
    Perfected at last.
  4. Deeper, deeper in the faith of Jesus,
    Holy faith and true;
    In His pow’r and soul exulting wisdom
    Let me peace pursue.

OPEN HEAVEN 29 NOVEMBER 2020 SUNDAY: BE A DOER OF THE WORD

OPEN HEAVEN 29 NOVEMBER 2020 MEMORIZE: But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. James 1:22

OPEN HEAVEN 29 NOVEMBER 2020 BIBLE READING JAMES 1:21-25

21. Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls.

22. But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.

23. For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass:

24. For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was.

25. But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.

HAPPY SUNDAY BELOVED,

OPEN HEAVEN 29 NOVEMBER 2020 MESSAGE
Life, like a coin, has two sides.

You are either stingy or generous, proud or humble, hardworking or lazy.

In the same vein, you are either a mere hearer of the word of God or a doer.

A hearer is one who listens to the word of God with rapt attention only to later forget and revert to his/her normal way of doing things.

He/she may even have resolved to change during the course of the teaching; however, the hearer would not change because he/she would not make a conscious effort to initiate the change process.

With every word which convicts your heart, you must make the change immediately, or else you would be a mere hearer of the word.

Don’t begin to analyse it; just make the change.

In the process of analysing, you will give the devil the opportunity to suggest why you should not make that necessary change.

If after listening to a sermon, you realise the need to repent from committing adultery, you must immediately break the evil relationships that make you open to the sin, before you even think about it.

Send a message to your partner in sin and delete his/her contact immediately.

If you delay, the devil would tell you how hurt the person would feel; he would also remind you of the sinful pleasures that you would be missing.

At the end of the day, if you entertain the thoughts of the devil, you may eventually return to adultery and end up in hell. John 15:14 says:

“Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.”

Once I hear a word that touches me, l act on it immediately without hesitation.

When I heard that worldly music invites evil spirits into the home, I immediately destroyed everything connected to worldly music in my home.

I did not even look at any of the cassettes for the fear of seeing one or two that might make me reconsider my resolve.

I acted on the word immediately and became better afterwards.

Your mind is a battlefield; if you give the enemy the opportunity to re-strategise, you could eventually lose the fight.

OPEN HEAVEN 29 NOVEMBER 2020 KEY POINT

Delay may be dangerous. When God’s word convicts you, act on it immediately.

OPEN HEAVEN 29 NOVEMBER 2020 HYMN

NEARER MY GOD TO THEE

1. Nearer, my God, to Thee,
Nearer to Thee;
E’ en though it be a cross
That raiseth me,
Still all my song shall be
Nearer, my God, to Thee,
Nearer, my God, to Thee,
Nearer to Thee.

2. Though, like a wanderer
The sun gone down,
Darkness comes over me,
My rest a stone;
Yet in my dreams I’d be
Nearer, my God, to Thee
Nearer, my God, to Thee
Nearer to Thee.

3. There let me see the sight,
An open heaven;
All that thou sendest me,
In mercy given;
Angles to beckon me
Nearer, my God, to Thee
Nearer, my God, to Thee
Nearer to Thee

4. Then, with my walking thoughts
Bright with Thy praise,
Out of my stony griefs
Bethel I’ll raise,
So by my woes to be
Nearer, my God, to Thee,
Nearer, my God, to Thee,
Nearer to Thee

5. Or if on joyful wing
Cleaving the sky
Sun, moon, and stars forgot,
Upwards I fly,
Still all my song shall be,
Nearer my God to Thee,
Nearer my God to Thee,
Nearer to Thee!

LESSON THIRTEEN (13)

TOPIC: THE IMPORTANCE OF THE LOVE OF CHRIST

BIBLE TEXT: Matthew 14:13-21

13. As soon as Jesus heard the news, he left in a boat to a remote area to be alone. But the crowds heard where he was headed and followed on foot from many towns.

14. Jesus saw the huge crowd as he stepped from the boat, and he had compassion on them and healed their sick.

15. That evening the disciples came to him and said, “This is a remote place, and it’s already getting late. Send the crowds away so they can go to the villages and buy food for themselves.”

16. But Jesus said, “That isn’t necessary—you feed them.”

17. “But we have only five loaves of bread and two fish!” they answered.

18. “Bring them here,” he said.

19. Then he told the people to sit down on the grass. Jesus took the five loaves and two fish, looked up toward heaven, and blessed them. Then, breaking the loaves into pieces, he gave the bread to the disciples, who distributed it to the people.

20.  They all ate as much as they wanted, and afterward, the disciples picked up twelve baskets of leftovers.

21. About 5,000 men were fed that day, in addition to all the women and children!

RCCG JUNIOR ZEAL (AGES 6-8)

MEMORY VERSE: 

John 15:9

“I have loved you even as the Father has loved me. Remain in my love.”

LESSON AIM:

The children will feel assured of God’s love and compassion

CHILD RELATED TRUTH:

Christ’s love is always sure.

INTRODUCTION:

Jesus had sent His twelve disciples out to spread the gospel on their own. He was preparing them to one day be without Him. When they came back, they told Jesus all they had done while they were gone. There were many people coming to them to be healed, see miracles, and hear them teach. There were so many people that they did not even have time to eat so Jesus took them to the other side of the lake and people still followed and He had pity on them and decided to teach

them about the kingdom of God

PROGRESSION OF EVENTS:

1. Jesus was teaching people out by a big lake.

2. Everyone was very excited to hear what he had to say.

3. Some of the disciples asked Jesus if there was going to be any food because some of the crowds were getting nungry and there was no

way to feed everyone.

4. Jesus told the disciples to see if anyone in the crowd had food to

share.

5. How were they going to find someone with enough to feed

everyone.

6. Jesus replied, “They do not need to go away. You give them

Something to eat.”

7. But the disciples did find a little boy with a lunch of five loaves and two fishes.

8. Jesus gave thanks for the food then He had the disciples give them out to the people.

GOSPEL CONNECTION:  RCCG JUNIOR ZEAL (AGE 6-8) TEACHER’S MANUAL SUNDAY 29TH OF NOVEMBER 2020

We see Jesus’ desire for the disciples to recognize who He is and why He has come. We see Him again as

God in these miracles. Jesus wants each of you to know and

remember who He is and why He came to earth. Jesus desires for you to not just hear about who He is, but to always remember and to never let your heart become blind, forgetting all we know to be true.

Jesus is God. we know this from what we read in the Bible (hold up

vour Bible). He came to earth so that we could be forgiven of our

sins so that we could know God and live forever with Him because of the love God has for the whole world (John 3:16).

CLIMAX:

Amazingly, there was enough food for everyone to eat and leftover

CONCLUSION: When the disciples counted, there were twelve baskets leftover.

CHALLENGE:

One very inmportant thing we do not want to miss today is the great compassion Jesus had for the people who came to hear Him teach. Compassion means showing great love and great kindness to

someone. He was tired and hungry just like the disciples. Yet, when He

saw all these people who were eager to hear what He had to say, He felt love for them in His heart and saw them as more important than Himself.

Jesus has compassion for each of us too. He loves us greatly and wants us to know Him.

INVITATION:

Believe in the Lord Jesus and be saved. ( Acts 16:31).

LESSON TWELVE (12)

MEMORY VERSE: Ephesians 5:2: And walk in love, as Christ hath loved us.
LESSON AIM: The love of Christ brought you Salvation and other kingdom benefits.
CHILD RELATED TRUTH: Jesus died for you to be saved from your sin.
INTRODUCTION: If Jesus had not died, nobody could have their sins forgiven. God must punish all sins because He is always right and fair. But God loves you so much that He planned this rescue mission and sent His son to suffer and died. Jesus loves you so much that He willingly took the punishment you deserve. The son of God loves me and gave Himself for me. Galatians 2:20.

PROGRESSION OF EVENTS:
A. Excited that the famous miracle worker Jesus was coming through Jericho, a tax collector named Zaccheaus determined to see Him pass along the busy street.
B. People were everywhere all scrambling for a good spot Zaccheaus hurried ahead and climb the tree.
C. As He passed, Jesus purposely looked at Zaccheaus spoke kindly to Him.
D. By saying that He wants to spend time at Zaccheaus’ home, Jesus let everyone that knows that He accepted Zaccheaus.
E. Surprised, but very pleased, Zaccheaus quickly jumped down from the tree.
F. The offended Jews grumbled because Jesus was being a friend to a man theyview as a termible sinner.
CLIMAX: Zaccheaus was saved because Jesus loved him. He also loves you. The importance of His love is to give us salvation.
CONCLUSION: Zaccheaus became a changed man and he promised half his possession will be given to the poor to make things right by giving back four times what he has wrongly collected. And Jesus said to him, he is saved, because he repented.
CHALLENGE: In Luke 19:10, Jesus said “For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost. You that have received Jesus tell others about the importance of His love so that they can be saved from their sins.
