*We started our Series some weeks back – The Title of which of course is: “For Whom The Heavens Open”. But now we are moving to Part 5; which will be a continuation of: “The Man for whom the Heavens open to by name Moses!”*
Our Bible Text is in Exodus 3: 1-5:
1. Now Moses kept the flock of Jethro his father in law, the Priest of Midian: and he led the flock to the backside of the desert, and came to the Mountain of God, even to Horeb.
2. And the Angel of the LORD appeared unto him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush: and he looked, and, behold, the bush burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed.
3. And Moses said, I will now turn aside, and see this great sight, why the bush is not burnt.
4. And when the LORD saw that he turned aside to see, God called unto him out of the midst of the bush, and said, Moses, Moses. And he said, Here am I.
5. And he said, Draw not nigh hither: put off thy shoes from off thy feet, for the place whereon thou standest is Holy Ground.
And for the benefits of those who Probably not around or missed out of the Series done on the 29th of January 2023, we will do a quick recap.
We learnt on the 29th of January 2023 from this Story in our Bible Text that:
I. The Heavens can open Unexpectedly.
II. The Heavens can open anywhere – Whether at the backside of the Desert or at home or at your Place of work.
III. Then we now observed that God suddenly turned a little Piece of dirty Ground to Holy Ground.
IV. We saw from there the Awesomeness of the Power of God –
– That if He breathes on mud; mud will become a Living Soul;
– We saw that if He spits on mud, the mud will suddenly become a Miracle Producing Anointed Mud;
– We saw that if He speaks to a River for example, River Jordan for instance can begin to remove reproach from a man.
– And then we saw what happens when He touches anything – That, that something can begin to Produce Miracle for Human Beings.
PASTOR E.A ADEBOYE FOR WHOM THE HEAVENS OPEN – PART 5 (CASE STUDY OF MOSES – PART II)
*We want to continue from there today (12th February 2023)!*
*Moses saw a Fire burning a bush and the bush was not Consumed.*
*So, we learnt from here Straightaway that there are 2 kinds of Fire:*
*1. There us one Fire that Consumes.*
*2. There is the other Fire that Purifies.*
*Both of them coming from God!*
1. When we look at the Consuming Fire first, we discovered that if God wants to destroy a whole City, all He needs to do is just send down Fire from Heaven.
I. In Genesis 19: 24-28 – When God wanted to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah, He send down Fire from Heaven and the Fire consumed the entire City.
II. And when you read 1 Kings 1: 9-12 – When some Soldiers came to arrest Elijah (And I’m sure that you will remembered that in Year 2022, we did a little Study on that); Elijah called down Fire from Heaven to consume the Soldiers.
III. You know that when God said in Deuteronomy 28: 1-7 – When He said that if you hearken to Him diligently; He said that one of the Blessings that will come upon you is that when enemies come against you, you won’t have to fight them. He said that the enemies that come against you will be smitten before your face. But He didn’t explain in details how He is going to do the smitten.
He said that those who come against you – Those who do not die on the spot, if they come one way, they will flee seven ways.
*So, they will see something that will bring tremendous Fear to them.*
*One of the ways that I’m sure that we mentioned Last year (2022) is that He can send Fire from Heaven and consume them.*
*Which shows that if you are a True Child of the Living God, your enemies are in trouble.*
One of the things that God said to Abraham which we emphasised while Studying him is the fact that whatever happens to Abraham can happen to us.
When the Almighty God was talking to Abraham, He said: I will bless those who bless you and I will curse those who curse you.
If you are a True Child of the Living God; your friends are blessed because you are blessed and your enemies are cursed because that is one of the Promises of God to Abraham.
*So, there is this Fire that is so Powerful that can come from Heaven and just Consume your enemies!*
As a matter of fact, if Somebody has made up his Mind to be your enemy, then you should begin to Pity such a Fellow because they will find themselves face to face with God and our God is a Consuming Fire.
*We also learnt Last Year (2022) in 1 Kings 18: 36-39 – When Elijah called down Fire on Mount Carmel:*
I. And the Fire consumed the wood.
And we mentioned then that by the Fire consuming wood, it releases the Potential of the wood. That every wood has a Potential of becoming Fire.
When the Fire came down and consumed the wood, it turned the wood to Fire.
II. And the Fire went ahead and consume Rocks.
And we mentioned then that Rock is Symbolic of Hardship.
That means that the Power of God that comes down can consume all the Hardship in your Life.
And there was an Example that we gave then in 2 Kings 4: 1-7 – In the case of a Widow of a Prophet who was Destiture, who owes so much money and heavily in debt that the Creditors wanted to sell her children. And when she came in contact with the Almighty God, through His Servant (Elisha); that in a Single Day, the debts were forgiven/paid and there was enough to live on for the rest of her lives.
*I’m Praying that the Fire of God will come down today and consume your debts, consume all your Problems and give you Abundance for the rest of your lives – Amen!*
III. And we told us that dust is talking about us (Our flesh) because we were made from the dust of the Ground.
And we said that what that means is that the Fire of God can destroy every Yokes in our lives.
Afterall, it is written in 1 Samuel 10:27 – That the Anointing of God will destroy Yokes.
And Probably, you will remembered that we gave the Example of Luke 13: 11-17, of a woman who was bound by satan, who has bent double that no matter how hard she tried, she couldn’t walk Straight.
But when she came in contact with the Almighty God Himself; just a Word from Him and the Yokes were destroyed.
*I’m Praying that the same Miracle will happen today – Amen; that whatever is it that is in your Life, whatever is causing you shame, whatever is it that People will describe you by, that the Fire of God will consume it – Amen!*
It is this Fire of God that can consume like in Judges 15: 14-15 – When they brought Samson bound to his enemies. As soon as the enemies began to rejoice, the Fire of God fell and the ropes that bound him were destroyed.
The Bible described it as if they had come in contact with Fire.
*There are some of us that even up till now, the enemies are still rejoicing, thinking that they got us Captured; thinking that Oh because they succeeded in one (1) or two (2) attacks on us Last year (2022); thinking that this year (2023) will be a repetition of their Victory. But the Almighty God will surprise them this year (2023) because the Heavens is going to open and the Destructive, the Consuming Fire of the Most High God is going to come down Mightily and every ropes binding your hands that is not allowing you to succeed will be consumed by Fire so that whatever you touched from now on will begin to Prosper – Amen!*
*Any ropes binding your legs that is not allowing you to make Progress in the Past, the Fire of God will come down and consume them; so that your Progress this year (2023) will be accelerated – Amen!*
And then of course you know the Story of Shedrach, Meshach and Abednego – That they were bound and thrown into the midst of a fiery furnace. Now that fire was hot seven (7) times than usual and you know the results.
The men who threw them in – The Bible called them Mighty Men, were slained by the Fire. But that same Fire burnt also the ropes binding Shedrach, Meshach and Abednego.
PASTOR E.A ADEBOYE FOR WHOM THE HEAVENS OPEN – PART 5 (CASE STUDY OF MOSES – PART II)
*I have Good News for you – Whatever the enemies has concerted concerning you:*
A. The enemies will be in for a “Big Surprise” – That is even if they live to see the result of what God is going to do.
B. The ropes they used to bound you will be consumed.
*But as you will see, the same Fire that kills the enemies of Shedrach, Meshach and Abednego; only brought them closer to the Forth (4th) man – The Son of God!*
*I’m sure that by the time they walked out of that Fire, they were Purified – They were not the same men that went in because when they came out, they were Promoted!*
IV. And then this Fire is so Powerful in its Ability to consume that it will even consume water.
You remembered that I told you then, that means that when this Consumimg Fire of God falls, it will lick up your tears.
You know that it is written in Revelation 7:17 that God will wipe away all tears from our eyes.
*That is Good News for those of us who are True Children of God because I believed that one of the reasons that the Heavens will open unto us is that this year (2023) in the Mighty Name of Jesus Christ; you will weep no more – Amen; that everything that could be causing us sorrow will be consumed by the Consuming Fire of the Almighty God – Amen!*
2. But there is another type of Fire – A type of Fire that Moses saw on that day:
I. The Fire that burns the bush but the bush was not consumed.
II. The Fire that burns on a Piece of Property and that dust suddenly became a Holy Ground.
*It is called a Purifier Fire of God – It burns without Consuming and it burns to turn to Holy.*
The Bible says in Malachi 3:3 – It says that the Almighty God is going to Purify the sons of Levi.
I. Oh, that is Good News for those of you who are Ministers of God.
*I believed that the Fire of the Almighty God is going to come down Mightily upon all His Ministers of God this year (2023).*
*He says that He is going to Purify them like when you Purify Silver or when you Purify Gold.*
There are many of us who are Ministers of God and we want to do Mighty Things for God.
We heard and know very well that the Almighty God said that we will lay hands on the Sick and the Sick will be healed.
And many atimes, we lay hands on the Sick and the Sick died and we wondered what is going on? We cry with all our hearts for Miracles to happen but deep down within us, we will keep on remembering that the Hand of the Lord is not Shortened that He cannot save, His Ears are not deaf that He cannot hear us but that there is an Insulator between us and that Mighty Power of God.
And He says that it is our sin!
And we looked at ourselves crying to God – God, I know that I am not Perfect. But You said in Your Words that You will make Your Ministers Flames of Fire. How come Lord that my Fire is not burning?
Oh, it is because you need Purification! And there is a Fire that Purifies.
*That is the kind of Fire that Moses saw at the backside of the Desert – It comes on the bush and the bush was not consumed and it came down on the mud and the mud became an Holy Ground.*
*I Pray in the Name of the One who called me that on all of you who are Ministers of God; that the Purifying Fire will come upon you this year (2023) in Jesus Name – Amen. It will even come today in Jesus Name – Amen!*
II. Now I’m sure that you begin to say: What about those of us who are not yet Ordained?
*Oh, if you draw close to God, if you serve Him the way you should serve Him; the same Fire that is going to burn the ropes binding your feet, causing your Promotions to be accelerated; the same Fire can accelerate your Promotion Spiritually.*
There are lots of People today who are not even thinking of being Promoted or being Ordained – Oh, wait till the Heavens open.
*When the Heavens open, you don’t have to wait for the Recommendation of anybody. God Himself can recommend you.*
*And when God recommends you, when God opens the door; who can shut it?*
*When the Almighty God says I want to do something, who can stop Him?*
When we were talking about the Heavens opening to Abraham, you remembered that we said that it can even override your doubts or your unbelief.
He is the One who said: “The Just shall live by Faith”. And He is also the One who said: “I will work, who can hinder me?
*I am Praying for everyone of you listening to me today or reading now on the Label of Opeeaven.netn that: That Purifier Fire will come upon each and everyone of you and your Life now will cease to be a Life of Up today and down tomorrow – Amen. And you begin to live a Life of Purity, a Life of Holiness, a Life that will Please God, that will cause Him to even draw you Closer to Himself – Amen!*
In Acts 2: 1-4; when the Disciples gathered in the Upper Room. The Fire that fell on them was the Purifying Fire.
The Bible says that the Fire sat on the Head of each and everyone of them.
They didn’t leave that Place suffering headaches, they didn’t leave that Place feeling hotness of Head.
No, the Fire Purifies them, Preparing them for Great Things that the Almighty God wanted to do through them.
So that by the time you get to Acts 4: 12-16; the Bible tells us that from this same Group of People – Fishermen, Tax Collectors, all manners of People. Suddenly, God began to Perform Mighty Miracles.
*It says that by the hands of the Apostles, Mighty Great Miracles were Performed by the Almighty God. So much so that even the Shadow of one of them:*
I. A Fisherman who failed at fishing.
II. A Fisherman who denied Jesus Christ three (3) times.
III. A Fisherman who thought that he will never be a Vessel unto Hinour in the Hands of God.
*But because this Special Fire came on him, the Shadow of Peter began to heal the Sick and the People who were brought far and near touched by his Shadow went home rejoicing.*
*You know that the Almighty God made a Promise – He said that the works that He did, we shall do also and we shall do even Greater Works than He did:*
I. When He was here on Earth, we didn’t have a record of His Shadow healed.
Oh, when here on Earth; we heard of People touching the Hem of His Garments and they got healed; we heard about People that He touched with His Hands and they got healed but then, there was no record that His Shadow healed any man.
But Peter went beyond this and his Shadow began to heal.
II. When the Lord was here on Earth, we never read about Him sending His Handkerchiefs to go and heal anybody.
Yes, they touched the hem of His Garment and they were healed but He was there wearing the Garment.
But we know that through Paul the Apostle, his Handkerchiefs went ahead and Performed Miracles.
*If this Purifying Fire touches you, then that Promise that Greater Works than Jesus Christ did, you will do in Jesus Name from now on – Amen!*

*ALTAR CALL*

And that is why I’m appealing to those of us who are already Children of the Living God that we put into effect immediately Romans 12:1 – That we Present our bodies, a Sacrifice, lay our bodies on the Altar for the Fire of God to fall:
I. So that this Fire can come, touch us, Purify us and turn us to “Mighty Miracle Working Mud”.
II. So that even our Colleagues will hear of what God is doing through you and ask you what happened.
And you will tell them – Well, the Heavens opened, the Purifying Fire of God came and I’m no longer who I used to be.
*In the Mighty Name of Jesus Christ, that will be what your Testimony will be this year (2023) – Amen!*
As for those of you who has not already given your Life to Jesus Christ; you have a Choice – Either that of a Consuming Fire or that of the Purifying Fire.
Because if you die in your sin, there is no doubt about it that you will be going to Hell.
But if you come to the Almighty God today, you surrender your Life to Him; one of the Promises that will follow is that He will Baptise you with Holy Ghost and with Fire.
And instead of going to Hell, you will become a Vessel unto Honour in His Hands.
So, I’m inviting you if you have not given your Life to Jesus Christ; in your own Interest do so now. And cry to the Almighty God for the Salvation of your Soul.
As for those of who are already Born Again, let us surrender to God now completely. And tell Him that I’m lying on the Altar Lord; send down Your Fire and Purify me.
Let Us Pray!

*PRAYER FOR SALVATION AND CLOSING PRAYER*

My Father and my God, I want to bless Your Holy Name. Ancient of Day, I want to give You all the Glory, all the Honour for Your Words.
And I want to Thank You for those who has heard Your Words, I’m thanking You especially for those who has decided that they want to surrender their lives to You.
Please Father, receive them, let Your Blood Please wash away their sins, save their Souls Lord, write their names in the Book of Life and Lord God let Your Purifying Fire come upon them so that from now on, when they cry unto You, You will answer them by Fire.
My Father and my God, I’m also Praying for all Your Children who are already serving You; I Pray that as they surrender completely to You, as they lay their bodies on the Altar; Please send down Your Purifying Fire so that they will begin to Perform Miracles for You.
Lord God Almighty, let the Heavens open today and let our lives Change for the better.
In Jesus Mighty Name we have Prayed – Amen!
Let Someone shout Hallelujah – Hallelujah!
I rejoice with those of you who has surrendered your Life to Jesus Christ. I want to Promise you in the Mighty Name of Jesus Christ that from now on, if you will contact me, I will be Praying for you.
So, I need your names, your Address and your Prayer Requests so that I can be Praying for you.
And I will advice you to contact the nearest The Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) to you – Tell the Pastor there that I sent you and that you want to know what to do next now that you are a Child of God and he will tell you.
Congratulations! God bless you all in Jesus Mighty Name – Amen.
Praise the Lord – Hallelujah!!!
