RCCG Open Heavens Daily Devotional for the month of June 2021 By Pastor E.A Adeboye

OPEN HEAVENS 2021 Saturday June 12

TOPIC: BE A GOOD UNDER-SHEPHERD

Memorise: Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly; not For filthy lucre, but of a ready mind; 1 Peter 5:2

Read: Matthew 28:19-20

The situation in Jeremiahs time as seen in today’s Bible reading closely reflects the true state of affairs of God’s people. The Bible says that all these were written as examples For those who shall be alive at the end- times. The ongoing fulfilment of end-time prophecies is an indication that the end is near (Corinthians 10:11). In this end-time, many pastors and preachers are no longer building Precious stones on the Sure Foundation-Jesus Christ. Rather they are building rubble, that is, basing their sermons on modern ideologies in order to make Christianity acceptable to the 21st century generation. 1Peter 2:2 says:

As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby Many modern-day pastors and ministers of the gospel are failing to live by Apostle Paul’s instruction in 2 Timothy 4:2, 5: Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season reprove rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.. But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.

The Bible encourages ministers of the gospel against negligence in their service. Ezekiel 3:11 says: … go, get thee to them, and speak unto them, whether they will hear or whether they will forbear.. Ezekiel was also told not to consider their unfriendly countenance but rather give the word as he was asked to (Ezekiel 2:6).

As Christian parent, you need to take cognisance of days message for your family. Your home is the God- given flock you are to nurture in the fear of the Lord. followers however, also have the duty to crosscheck what they are being taught by their leaders, like the Berean Christians (Acts 17:11).

Are you a shepherd or a wolf? Think about this and may the Lord grant you understanding in Jesus’ name.

Be a good under-shepherd, building your flock not on the rubble of modern ideologies but on the solid foundation of the word of God. Ensure that you study and teach the undiluted word of the Good Shepherd.

TOPIC: THE WORD DELIVERS

Memorise: He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions. Psalm 107:20

Read: Jeremiah 33:1-9

The word of God is more potent than any two-edged Sword, according to the Following passage from Hebrews 4:12:

For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder or soul and spirit, and or the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. it is unfortunate, however, that some Christians trivialize the word of God and so lose its benefits. When the word of God comes to an individual in the form of a prophecy, scripture or other means, wisdom should tell the fellow to pay close attention to it.

Going by our text of today and the memory verse we can the word was sent to the people of Judah for deliverance and restoration of their freedom and deliverance which they lost in battle to the Chaldeans. Never allow yourself to lose Focus so you would know when God sends a specific word that could settle your case.

Typically, in the Old Testament before the children of Israel went to war, the word of God would go forth announcing their victories and that always settled the battle. Sometimes Church services and programmes, God sends forth prophecies that would have settled people’s cases before they began to pray I Prophesy to you: your life, marriage, business or career will receive the peace of God now, in Jesus’ name.

it is equally comforting that the word of God offers spiritual cleansing And I will cleanse them from all their iniquity, whereby they have sinned against me; and I will all their iniquities, whereby they have sinned, and whereby they have transgressed against me. Jeremiah 33:8

Thus, every child of God must read, study, meditation upon the word of God day and night (Joshua 1:8). We must partake of the word of God being preached in Sunday school, Bible Study and Christian teaching seminars. The Bible says: … even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; that he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word. Ephesians 5:25-26

TOPIC: OUR SURE REFUGE

Memorise: The Lord also will be a refuge for the Oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble. Psalm 9:9

Read: Psalm 71:1-2

Knowledge, particularly godly knowledge is power.

This is why Paul in Philippians 3:10 prayed: That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death:

The Almighty God is our sure refuge and fortress. However, that only applies if you are His child. A refuge is somewhere you hide When trouble is looming. for me, this place is the presence of God.

Sometimes, hiding is not cowardice. it could be wisdom, provided you are hiding with the Sure Refuge. Even gallant warriors learn to hide; it is a military strategy. There are several occasions in the Bible when God told His prophets to hide. In 1 Kings 17:1-3, Elijah pronounced Before a king that there would be no rain until he commanded so. Immediately after he did, God asked him to hide. Is this not strange? Was God afraid of the king? Definitely not! When God says you should hide, what it implies is that the battle is no longer yours but His. I have learnt to hide when God says I should. In Matthew 2:13-15, God told Joseph to take Mary and the baby Jesus into hiding. Even the Son of God had to be taken into hiding. He was hidden so that God could deal with Herod. Eventually, Herod was smitten by an angel and eaten by worms thereafter (Acts 12:21-23). If God asks me to hide so He can fight for me, I will gladly do so.

Like the Psalmist in Psalm 71:1-2, when our trust in the Lord is total, we would not need anyone to persuade us to exercise faith. One of my sons told the story of how he destroyed all his charms after he gave his life to Christ. Thus, it became difficult for him to think of going back. Pay attention to the second verse of our Bible reading Deliver me in thy righteousness, and cause me to escape: incline thine ear unto me, and save me.

Only the righteousness of God can make us victorious over the attacks of the enemy. A life of holiness makes God incline His ear to our cry in times of trouble. The promise of God in Psalm 91:14-15 is for those who love Him, know is name and keep His commandments. I pray that God will be your Sure Refuge from today in Jesus’ mighty name.

OPEN HEAVENS 2021 Tuesday June 15

TOPIC: OUR SURE FORTRESS

Memorise I will say of the Lord, He Is my Refuge an my fortress: my God; in him will trust. Psalm 91:2

Read: Psalm 71:3-7

The Most High is also a fortress. A fortress is where you go out from to fight. After you have stayed in the refuge for some time and have prepared for the battle, it will become your fortress. A fortress is where you put on your armour, get all your strength and then go out to battle. For a child of God, the Almighty God is not only your refuge, He is also your fortress. Jehovah-Nissi is not just a God who defends; He also attacks! He is the Divine Fortress for genuine children of God. The God who told Elijah to hide was also the One who told him to go forth and fight, after some time. we see a different Elijah in 1 Kings 18:40:

And Elijah said unto them, Take the prophets of Baal; let not one of them escape. And they took them: and Elijah brought them down to the brook Kishon, and slew them there.

Another example is in 1 Samuel 17:43-45. Goliath had Cursed David by the name of his gods and the latter handed him over to the Lord of Hosts. Goliath was disappointed by his gods and weapons whereas David was protected by the Everlasting Arms of the Almighty. Deuteronomy 33:27 says: The eternal God is thy refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms: and he shall thrust out the enemy from before thee; and shall say, Destroy them.

Our God never loses a war: David discovered this truth, no wonder he said “Be thou my strong habitation, whereunto I may continually resort:.(Psalm 71:3) knowing fully well that no evil shall befall anyone who makes God his or her habitation (Psalm 91:9-10).

When you make the Almighty your habitation, you must live holy because He is holy. Some people cannot be offered the opportunity to spend time with prominent people simply because they are dirty. If you don’t want to short-change yourself of the benefits of living with the King of kings and the Lord of lords, then you have to do away with sinful habits. When you make God your fortress, He will deliver you from the wickedness of life.

As you live a life of holiness, God will be your habitation in Jesus’ name.

Action Point: Take inventory of your life begin to take steps towards changing anything that may disqualify you from having the Lord as your Sure Fortress.

OPEN HEAVENS 2021 Wednesday June 16

TOPIC: THE SIN OF COVETOUSNESS

Memorise: And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware Of covetousness: for a man’s life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth. Luke 12:15

Read: Exodus 18:21

Covetousness is a major challenge both in the Church and in the world today. Worldliness toohas become a great foe of the church and it appears many Christians (irrespective of how long they have been in the faith), are being carried along. This may be because even they are victims of this sinful habit.

Our Lord Jesus, in today’s memory verse warns us against covetousness. Covetousness can be described as an inordinate desire for material or non-material possessions, especially those of another individual. In Exodus 20:17, the Lord warns against coveting someone else’s possessions or spouse. The vanity in being covetous is captured in Ecclesiastes 5:10-11 which says: He that loveth silver shall not be satisfied with silver; nor he that loveth abundance with increase: this is also vanity. When goods increase, they are increased that eat them: and what good is there to the owners thereof, saving the beholding of them with their eyes”

In 1 Timothy 6:6-9, Apostle Paul wrote to warn us against the menace of worldliness and covetousness. He encouraged believers to embrace godliness with contentment which is great again. He said also that “.they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition” (1 Timothy 6:9). John corroborates this in 1 John 2:15-17 where he warned us against worldliness, saying:

Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him..And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof..

Beloved, how far have you been dragged into the world? How far has the world been dragged into you? Are you not running after those things that did not matter to you years ago? Even the rich are now running into the Church; they want peace and satisfaction. They envy believers and want to share in our heritage. While they are running to God for peace and joy, many of us have thrown away these blessings that money cannot buy, for the vanity of this world. Remain where God has established you.

OPEN HEAVENS June 16, 2021 Hymn 14: Jesus My Lord, My God, My All

Action Point: Mortify any form of lust in our life the lust of the flesh, of the eyes and the pride of life, so you can enjoy everlasting joy and peace

OPEN HEAVENS 2021 Thursday June 17

TOPIC: PRAYER WORKS!

Memorise: And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the Lord hath said, and in the remnant whom the Lord shall call. Joel 2:32

Read: Psalm 30:1-3

Beloved, you must know that life is a battleground.

Revelation 12:12 says that the devil has come in great fury to torment the inhabitants of the earth because he lost out in Heaven as a result of his rebellion against God.

Apart from the devil, even mankind has, from the beginning of time, been wicked to one another. The story of Cain and Abel is a classic example. No wonder Jeremiah 17:9 says: “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it”

Should believers then run from the children of men to avoid being victims? No, Christians should instead look into the word of God to find a way out. The way of escape is prayer. Our memory verse of today succinctly guides us in the direction of prayer so that we may be victors and not victims.

There is also a lesson from our Bible reading today: it is that when we call upon the Lord tor help, He will not withhold His everlasting arms from saving us. David called on God when he was distressed and his testimony was that God heard him (Psalm 3:4). Beloved, what are you waiting for? Why can’t you call upon the Lord today concerning the unpleasant situation you are passing through? assure you that you will not be disappointed because God promised in Psalm 91:15:

He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.

The condition for the fulfilment of this promise, however, is in the preceding verse which says. i Will set him on high, because he hath known my name.”

The question is: Do you love God, do you know His name as Jesus, the Deliverer from sin? If yes, have you been delivered from your sin and become one of His own It your answer is in the affirmative, I congratulate you. Go ahead and pray like never before because today Is the day you will receive express answers to your prayers. If not, ask Him to save you today.

TOPIC: HUNGER AND THIRST FOR RIGHTEOUSNESS

Memorise: Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness for they shall be filled. Matthew 5:6

Read: John 4:31-34

its a common saying that salvation is free. While this is true because no one can pay for the salvation Jesus offers, the reality is that Jesus already paid for it on our behalf. Thus, we Would be correct if we say salvation is not free after all. Also, it is not free because recipients too have a token to offer in obtaining eternal life, as we will see today.

In Matthew 13:45-46, Jesus describes how precious the Kingdom of God is, by likening it to what a rich man had to sell all his fortune for, in Matthew 5:29-30, Jesus explained how important it is to gain entrance into the Kingdom of God by advising that we do away with anything that would disqualify us From gaining entry into God’s presence, even if its our eye.

Today, some Christians are very careless with matters of Heaven. So many people trivialize sin and the harm it is capable of wreaking, on their souls. Revelation 21:8 contains a plain truth about the kingdom of God:

But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers and whoremongers, and sorcerer’s, and idolaters, and Liars will have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

Jesus calls us into free salvation but He adds in Matthew 11:29:

Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. This is the cost of eternal life-meekness. This is why He said “Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth (Matthew 5:5). He also said that blessed are those who hunger and thirst after righteousness (Matthew 5:6). These, no doubt are the costs of discipleship that we must pay to access the free salvation that gives eternal life. Beloved, if you desire eternal life, you must bear the cost even though Jesus has paid the supreme price.

it is sad that today, some leaders in the Church are encouraging people to be comfortable with sin. They explain away the reality of hell and teach grace win gross irresponsibility. You must do away with all such people.

Today is the day of salvation, now is the acceptable time Make your way right with God now.

OPEN HEAVENS June 18, 2021 Hymn 27: Take My Life, And Let It Be

Prayer point: Father, please put in my heart the hunger and thirst for righteousness.

TOPIC: FRUITLESSNESS DISASTROUS

Memorise: Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit. John 15:2

Read: Luke 13:6-7

Jesus told a parable about an unproductive, but well nurtured fig tree in today’s Bible reading. The reaction Of thee person tending this tree, in Luke 13:7, is our concern in todays devotional. The farmer in this parable had been expecting pleasant fruits based on his efforts; unfortunately he got nothing. Like this farmer in Luke 3:9. John the Baptist told the Jewish religious leaders of his days:

And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees: every tree therefore which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.

Beloved, according to 1 Corinthians 3:9, we are God’s husbandry. In other words, God is the husbandman, we are the lively trees, nurtured since the day of Our birth and particularly since we gave our lives to Christ. There is no doubt that we have been nourished graciously by the Almighty through His Son Jesus and the Holy Spirit. The fact that you are alive to see this day is a pointer to how we have received both physical and spiritual nourishment the question now is: Are you bearing fruits? The husbandman in our study today, ordered that the unproductive fig tree be cut down. This is serious. May we not be cut down in Jesus name. The practical “Amen” to this prayer Is to simply turn away from a life of fruitlessness.

If you are yet to be born again, Matthew 3:8 says you must first bring forth fruits meet for repentance. If you are already God’s child by His grace, Jesus is saying to you in John 15:4: Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me

You must give yourself completely to the Lordship of Jesus.

You must go the ‘extra mile’ for Him and you will surely get your reward.

Apart from not being cut down and thrown into fire, Jesus promised in John 15:16 that the Father will grant all the requests you make in His name. Once you begin to bear fruit, the Lord will also continue to purge you from all impurities so that you may bear even more. Please meditate on Galatians 5:22-26.

OPEN HEAVENS 2021 Sunday June 20

TOPIC: THE FATHER’S BLESSING

Memorise: The blessings of thy father have prevailed above the blessings of my progenitors unto the utmost bound of the everlasting hills: they shall be on the head of Joseph, and on the crown of the head of him that was separate from his brethren. Genesis 49:26

Read: Genesis 27:22-29

God is the Ultimate Father. In fact, He prefers the title of Father to God. No wonder when Jesus was teaching His disciples to pray in Matthew 6:9, He said they should start with “Our Father”. As a Father, God likes to bless His children. The first thing He did when He created the man and woman was to bless them (Genesis 1:27-28). He has also transferred some of that power to fathers on earth. This means that when your earthly father blesses you, it is as though God Himself is blessing you; it is irreversible. We see this in Genesis 27:33: And Isaac trembled very exceedingly, and said Who? where is he that hath taken venison, and brought it me, and I have eaten of all before thou camest, and have blessed him? yea, and he shall be blessed.

Your father blessings will propel you to tremendous greatness. In Genesis 27:38-40, Esau only got a remnant of the blessing from Isaac, yet in Genesis 32:6, we see that he had four hundred bodyguards. The first time a President attended one of our programmes at the Redemption Camp in Nigeria, he came along with two hundred and fifty bodyguards. Esau went to meet Jacob with four hundred bodyguards. That is what only a remnant of the blessing can do. In Genesis 27:29, we see that it can also make nations run helter-skelter to help you.

Nothing good comes cheap however; the fathers blessing is costly too, especially when it is from the heart. when Isaac wanted to bless Esau, he asked for something he loved. When you make your father happy, he will bless you from his heart. I had just arrived at the airport in Heathrow and I was carrying two big bags. There were two of my children-in-the-Lord there. One of them just greeted me while the other one ran to take my bags. I told the latter “God bless you”. The other one then said “Daddy, you did not say ‘God bless you’ to me”. I asked, “What did you do to warrant me blessing your When you make your father happy, he will bless you from his heart NOw, what can you gift your father- whether biological or spiritual, that would provoke him to bless you from his heart such that heaven would back it up? Present it to him in such a way that he would be happy with you; then ask him to bless you.

OPEN HEAVENS JUNE 20, 2021 Hymn 6: Great Is Thy Faithfulness

Prayer point: Father, guide me to do something that will provoke my fathers (biological and/or spiritual) to bless me.
