Daily Devotional for Friday 23rd Friday
#1
RHAPSODY OF REALITIES, 


FRIDAY 23RD JULY 2021.

Pastor Chris



TOPIC: THE KNOWLEDGE OF “THE FATHERS”


I write unto you, fathers, because ye have known him that is from the beginning… (1 John 2:13).
The Bible says, “Even so we, when we were children, were in bondage under the elements of the world”(Galatians 4:3). 

This is referring to those who are “nēpios” (Greek), spiritual babies; they’re the ones down with the flu today, and then headaches and heart trouble tomorrow.


But you can come out of that level through knowledge. There’s a training that’s required; that training brings you into “epignosis” (Greek); the exact or precise knowledge of God, full knowledge with intimacy. It’s called the knowledge of the fathers.


In His prayer for the Church, the Apostle Paul, by the Spirit, shows us how to get this knowledge of God. He says, “That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him” (Ephesians 1:17). As you meditate on the Word, secrets about the Kingdom-life and how to walk in the reality of the Word are unveiled to you. From then on, you know how to live in glory, with dominion over circumstances.


I would to God more of God’s people would come to the realization of who they are and what they have in Christ Jesus! How could you have the very life of God in you and be down with kidney problems, heart trouble, or any other kind of sickness or disease? It’s an anomaly; it’s not supposed to be.


The life in you can’t be sullied by infirmities; it’s superior to Satan and the elements of this world. Therefore, rather than be agitated when you feel the symptoms of sickness, boldly declare, “I have the life of God in me, and that life permeates my whole being and gets rid of all ailments and maladies.”


Make such declarations again and again, and soon enough, you’ll literally experience a surge of God’s power coursing through your whole being. This is how “the fathers” respond to circumstances and situations; it’s with the Word! They’re not slaves to the elements of this world; they live above them. Blessed be God!


PRAYER

Dear Father, thank you for your amazing blessings in my life. Thank you for giving me faith in my spirit through the Word. Thank you for bringing me into an awareness of truth, to walk in victory, glory, dominion and honour, forever, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.


FURTHER STUDY:

2 Peter 1:2
Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord,


2 Peter 3:18
But grow in grace, and [in] the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him [be] glory both now and for ever. Amen.


Ephesians 4:14-15
That we [henceforth] be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, [and] cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; 15 But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, [even] Christ:

#TALKINGSESSION 





Dear Father, I thank You for Your peace that garrisons my heart and mind. Thank You for the opportunity of fellowship with You in prayer and being strengthened to do Your will, and live for Your glory! I have the incorruptible life of Christ in my spirit. 


am an associate of the God-kind, reigning in life by grace through righteousness. I walk in the reality of the new life of righteousness, which I’ve received in Christ.



I am more than a conqueror; I live in dominion over Satan and the world! Hallelujah! I have the life of God in me; it flows in every fibre of my being. No sickness, disease or infirmity can thrive in my body, because the same Spirit that raised Christ from the dead lives in me, and has vitalized my body through and through!


I am whole, sound, and excellent. I live in, by, and through Your Word; Your Word pilots me and has lifted me above the confusion and the failure that work in this world. 


I live a life of success, health, prosperity, victory, and glory. The life of Christ in me makes me triumphant. I am making progress from glory to glory, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.



God bless you

OPEN HEAVENS DAILY DEVOTIONAL

  
DATE:  FRIDAY 23RD JULY 2021

THEME: WHEN REVIVAL COMES I
  

MEMORISE:

 Wilt thou not revive us again: that thy people may rejoice in thee? Psalm 85:6

READ: Psalm 85:4-7.

4 Turn us, O God of our salvation, and cause thine anger toward us to cease.

5 Wilt thou be angry with us for ever? wilt thou draw out thine anger to all generations?

6 Wilt thou not revive us again: that thy people may rejoice in thee?

7 Shew us thy mercy, O LORD, and grant us thy salvation.

MESSAGE:
In Christianity, revival generally refers to increased spiritual fervency or renewal in the congregation of believers.

What happens when revival comes? According to our Bible reading of today, people turn away from their wickedness when revival comes. Salvation becomes a household commodity and the anger of God ceases to burn against people. One pleasant thing about God concerning sinners is that He would always warn them of the dangers of a sinful life so they may repent and escape His fiery judgement. The Bible says in Ezekiel 18:21 -23:
“But if the wicked will turn from all his sins that he hath committed, and keep all my statutes, and do that which is lawful and right, he shall surely live, he shall not die. All his transgressions that he hath committed, they shall not be mentioned unto him: in his righteousness that he hath done he shall live. Have I any pleasure at all that the wicked should die? saith the Lord GOD: and not that he should return from his ways, and live?”

Another thing that happens when revival comes is that God answers the prayers of sinners- contrary to the general opinion that He does not. However, it is the prayer of repentance from a sinner that God honors before any other, according to 2 Chronicles 33:12-13. Revival brings about total restoration of both spiritual and physical wellbeing as seen in 2 Chronicles 33:14-15:
“ Now after this he built a wall without the city of David, on the west side of Gihon…. And he took away the strange gods, and the idol out of the house of the LORD, and all the altars that he had built in the mount of the house of the LORD, and in Jerusalem, and cast them out of the city.”

The true sign of revival is a genuine departure from an ungodly lifestyle, both publicly and even when we are in our closet. This is contrary to what we experience in the Church today when people claim to be born-again but still maintain their sinful lifestyles. Manasseh dies a penitent sinner and had peace. According to 2 Chronicles 33:18-20. Your beginning may not matter much but your end certainly will. You shall end well in  Jesus’ name.

PRAYER POINT:
If you are a sinner, pray for the salvation of your soul. If you are a backslider, pray for revival and complete restoration.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Psalm 69-71.
 
AUTHOR: PASTOR E. A. ADEBOYE 
  
HYMN 13:   I’VE A MESSAGE FROM THE LORD, HALLELUYAH.

1. I’ve a message from the Lord, hallelujah!
This message unto you I’ll give,
’Tis recorded in His word, hallelujah!
It is only that you “look and live.”

o Refrain:
“Look and live,” my brother, live,
Look to Jesus now, and live;
’Tis recorded in His word, hallelujah!
It is only that you “look and live.”

2. I’ve a message full of love, hallelujah!
A message, O my friend, for you,
’Tis a message from above, hallelujah!
Jesus said it, and I know ’tis true.

3. Life is offered unto you, hallelujah!
Eternal life thy soul shall have,
If you’ll only look to Him, hallelujah!
Look to Jesus who alone can save.

4. I will tell you how I came, hallelujah!
To Jesus when He made me whole—
’Twas believing on His name, hallelujah!
I trusted and He saved my soul.
