Morning Devotions

[2/1, 5:48 AM] 919063: Today’s SOD – 2020-02-01
TOPIC: BE STILL

SCRIPTURE: Be still,”and know that I am God”: I will be exalted among the heathen,”I will be exalted in the earth. The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Psalm 46″:10-11

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: The reality of God manifests in stillness. 

In life,”there are times when we come face-to-face with situations that cause bewilderment and perplexity. Many people do not know what to do at the turbulent moments of life. 

Now, what do you do at such times? You have to be still (Psalm 46″:10-11). 

But the question is,”what does it mean to be still? It means to be calm; to be at peace. It also means to be unruffled and unshaken in the face of daring circumstances and situations. It means to be stable and noiseless.

What are the products of stillness?

1. Insight”: In stillness there is insight. Psalm 46:10 says,”Be still, and know….So, when you are at peace, there are things you get to know. At times, when the enemy wants you to be agitated and tensed up, calm down and listen; you will hear and know something. 

2. Encounter”: In stillness there is encounter. Knowledge is a form of encounter. The Bible says,”And Adam knew his wife….In other words, Adam encountered his wife. So, to be still is to have encounter.

3. Divine Reality”: In stillness there is the manifestation of Divine reality. The reality of God manifests in stillness. There is a side of God you will never know until you are calm because it is not of him that willeth or runneth but of God that showeth mercy (Romans 9:16).

Beloved,”be still and watch God move. It is not over until God says it is over and God will never say it is over until His interest is secured; until His purpose is established in your life and destiny. So, do not let anything under heaven make you lose your peace. 

REMEMBER THIS”: The reality of God manifests in stillness.

ASSIGNMENTS:

1. Do not worry about anything; hand over your worries to Him and watch Him move into action.

2. When you are confronted by a storm,”be still, and listen for Divine instruction and direction; write those instructions out and obey them accordingly.

3. Disassociate yourself from every source of discouragement and depression.

FOR FURTHER UNDERSTANDING, GET THIS MESSAGE”: BE STILL 

PRAYER: Lord,”thank You for Your plan for me. Thank You for perfecting all that concerns me. I receive Your peace Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

DAILY BIBLE READING”: Numbers 35 – Deuteronomy 2.

QUOTE: If you want to soar in life,”look unto Jesus, and if you want to sink, look at the storm; it is a matter of choice. Culled from RIDING THE STORMS OF LIFE by Dr Paul Enenche. 

AMAZING FACT”: All humans have the ability to see ultraviolet light,”but it is filtered out by the eye’s lens. Patients who undergo surgery to remove the lens can detect ultraviolet light.

DON’T FORGET TO ATTEND”: The three power-Packed Sunday Services tomorrow by 6am,”8am and 10am. Endeavour to come to Church with your friends and loved ones. God bless you.

PROPHETIC WORD/DECLARATION”: Whatever is a cause of worry in your life today is arrested in Jesus’ Name.

[2/1, 5:54 AM] 919063: OPEN HEAVENS DAILY DEVOTIONAL

DATE: SATURDAY 1ST FEBRUARY 2020.

THEME: THE BLOOD OF JESUS I.

MEMORISE:

But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all[a] sin. 1 John 1:7

READ: Hebrews 9:11-14

11 But Christ being come an high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building;

12 Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us.

13 For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifieth to the purifying of the flesh:

14 How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?

MESSAGE

The Blood of Jesus is the most powerful substance I know. I know how powerful it is because I have used it countless times and it has worked for me. The most important thing that the Blood of Jesus can do is wash away sins. Every sinner carries a burden of guilt. However, the moment the fellow surrenders his/her life to Christ, the Blood of Jesus washes away his/her sins. From that moment, the fellow is completely pure and none of his sins exists anymore. Isn’t that wonderful? If you are still carrying the burden of sin, I advise that you ask Him to cleanse you with His Blood today and you will experience great peace like never before.

Aside from washing away sins, the Blood of Jesus is also a potent weapon to overcome Satan. Revelation 12:11 says:

“And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony…”

Is Satan tormenting you in any area of your life? Just plead the Blood of Jesus on it and you will overcome him.

The greatest covenant anyone can enter into is a blood covenant. If it so happens that your forefathers have entered into a covenant with the devil and you noticed certain trends in your linage, the Blood of Jesus is the only thing that can break it. A long time ago in my family, one of our fathers impregnated his maid and his wife at the same time. While the wife was well-cared for after delivery, the maid, because of her status, was given food without oil-very dry and unappetizing, despite having delivered a son. The maid, hurt, placed a curse on the family and from that moment on, any child born and given anything with oil to eat died. The family found out and oil became forbidden for children in the home. Then I met Christ and His Blood overcame the ancestral curse in my family.

The Blood of Jesus is powerful enough to overcome Satan and all his demons.

PRAYER POINT:

I plead the Blood of Jesus on my linage and I use it to break every curse or evil covenant that exists in my family in the mighty Name of Jesus.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Exodus 7-9

AUTHOR: PASTOR E. A. ADEBOYE

HYMN 8: HAVE YOU BEEN TO JESUS.

1. Have you been to Jesus for the cleansing pow’r?
Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?
Are you fully trusting in His grace this hour?
Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?

o Refrain:
Are you washed in the blood,
In the soul-cleansing blood of the Lamb?
Are your garments spotless? Are they white as snow?
Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?

2. Are you walking daily by the Savior’s side?
Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?
Do you rest each moment in the Crucified?
Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?

3. When the Bridegroom cometh will your robes be white?
Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?
Will your soul be ready for the mansions bright,
And be washed in the blood of the Lamb?

4. Lay aside the garments that are stained with sin,
And be washed in the blood of the Lamb;
There’s a fountain flowing for the soul unclean,
Oh, be washed in the blood of the Lamb!

[2/1, 7:28 AM] 919063: *DAILY MANNA*
*SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 1 2020*

*THE BEGINNING OF THE END*
*TEXT:* REVELATION 20:1-6.
_*🔑KEY VERSE* “And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years” (REVELATION 20:2)._

An agnostic farmer once wrote to the editor of his local newspaper, who was a Christian. He said, “In defiance of your God, I plowed my fields this year on Sunday, I disked and fertilized them on Sunday, I planted them on a Sunday, I cultivated them on a Sunday, and I reaped them on Sunday. This October I had the biggest crop I have ever had. How do you explain that?” The editor replied: “God does not always settle His accounts in October.”

The text reveals that Satan’s reign of impunity will gradually crumble. As a police officer would carry a pair of handcuffs to bind a criminal and a key to lock him up in a prison cell, so will the angel be given authority to bind Satan and lock him up in the abyss of a thousand years to stop him from deceiving the world.

In verse 4, the focus shifts to heaven where the souls of faithful Christians who had suffered and died for Christ are vindicated by coming to life and sitting on thrones in heaven which are symbols of authority and rule.

The real beauty of the passage under consideration today is the spiritual certainty it gives in the midst of our global, political, economic and personal uncertainties. Evil shall not prevail forever though it may endure for a while. The triumphing of the wicked is short. The day will eventually come when all evil people will answer to their crimes. Nothing can undo Satan’s judgement and Jesus’ victory. The saints will also triumph forever.

*✍THOUGHT FOR THE DAY* Payday will come for all evil people.

*COVER TO COVER* MATTHEW 8-9.

*MEDITATION*

Some secrets Satan will not like you to know about himself

1. He is not the strongest of angels. Many angels are stronger. The angel that will bind him is not a special angel vv1,2.
2. He is a personality (not just a force) that can be bound with heavenly chains vv1,2. The same with his demons.
3. He is not omnipresent. He could only be in a place at a time vv1,2.
4. He is not omniscience. If he knows before hand that the angel is coming at that time to bound him, he would have gathered his demons and put up a fight. This is characteristic of him vv1-3.
5. He is not omnipotent. Just a single angel caged him vv1,2.
6. He, with all his activities, can be caged and paralysed v3.
7. One of his most potent weapon is deception. He deceives nations and individuals with ease v3. Only the knowledge of the scriptures can set man free.
8. In order to enjoy peace and true prosperity on earth, community, family, church etc, Satan must be bound. The only way there could be peace and prosperity in the millennial is to shut him out of the millennial reign, notwithstanding that Jesus would be visibly reigning v3. Anywhere there is confusion and lack of true peace, bound Satan and the demons first and you will see the result.
9. All the raptured saints, Old Testament saints and Tribulation saints will partake of the millennial reign except the dead sinners only vv5,6.
10. If Satan could be bound, then the demons and their servants, including witches and wizards, can and should be bound by the weakest of saints.
*Lord*, I praise you because you are the only omnipotent, omniscient and omnipresent God. Satan is a liar🙏
*Lord*, help me to activate the anointing I have as a child of God (greater than angels) be a terror to demons and their captives🙏
*Take* full authority over all the activities of Satan in your life, family, Church, community etc and bound them🤜🙏

*HYMN* There is a great day coming

Verse 1
There’s a great day coming,
A great day coming,
There’s a great day coming by and by,
When the saints and the sinners shall
be parted right and left,
Are you ready for that day to come?
Chorus
Are you ready? Are you ready?
Are you ready for the judgement day?
Are you ready? Are you ready?
For the judgment day?
Verse 2
There’s a bright day coming,
A bright day coming,
There’s a bright day coming by and by;
But its brightness shall only come to
them that love the Lord,
Are you ready for that day to come?
Chorus
Are you ready? Are you ready?
Are you ready for the judgement day?
Are you ready? Are you ready?
For the judgment day?
Verse 3
There’s a sad day coming,
A sad day coming,
There’s a sad day coming by and by;
When the sinner shall hear his doom,
`Depart, I know ye not,`
Are you ready for that day to come?
Chorus
Are you ready? Are you ready?
Are you ready for the judgement day?
Are you ready? Are you ready?
For the judgment day?

*What Sound Are You Hearing?*

_Psalm 89:15-17 (NKJV , 1 Kings 18:41-42 (NLT)_
_Blessed are the people who know the joyful sound! They walk, O LORD, in the light of Your countenance. In Your name they rejoice all day long and in Your righteousness they are exalted. For You are the gIory of their strength, And in Your favor our horn is exalted. *Then Elijah said to Ahab, “Go get something to eat and drink. for I hear a mighty rainstorm coming!” So Ahab went to eat and drink. But Elijah climbed to the top of Mount Carmel and bowed low to the ground and prayed with his face between his knees._

It is God’s desire that everything that goes on in the earth is a perfect reflection of what goes on in Heaven, Matt.6:10. “For this to happen, you and I must be perfectly connected to the frequency of Heaven. When we are in tune with what is happening in Heaven, we can partner with God and be His channels through which what is happening in Heaven can be replicated on the earth. Now let us take a look at what is going on in Heaven by studying Hebrews chapter 1. God’s mode of speaking has changed. God now speaks through His Son Jesus (v.2). Jesus has purged our sins and He is sitting at the right hand of God and his position, power and name is far above all of the angels (v.3-12). Jesus is sitting at God’s right hand and God is making all His enemies His footstool and God’s angels have been sent to minister to us who are God’s children (v.13-14).

Do you know how God is making all of Jesus’ enemies to become His footstool? He is causing the victory that Jesus has won to become the tangible experience of every single part of Jesus’ Body (us). Ephesians 2:6 says, God has “raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus.” Jesus is the Head and we are the Body and His fullness is filling us all right now. The Bible says that after raising Jesus from the dead, God “… put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church, which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all” Eph. 1:22-23. Halleluyah! Do you now know what is going on in Heaven? The victory of Christ is speaking for you. The power and glory of Christ is available and set to manifest in your life. You have been exalted by God. You are where Christ is. You share what He has and you can do what He can do. Great things are about to happen in your life.

Prayer Focus: Rejoice in God over the victory of Christ for you and begin to declare the power and glory and blessings of Christ into your life right now.
