Open Heaven 13 August 2018 Bible Reading – Genesis 25:29-34

29 And Jacob sod pottage: and Esau came from the field, and he was faint:

30 And Esau said to Jacob, Feed me, I pray thee, with that same red pottage; for I am faint: therefore was his name called Edom.

31 And Jacob said, Sell me this day thy birthright.

32 And Esau said, Behold, I am at the point to die: and what profit shall this birthright do to me?

33 And Jacob said, Swear to me this day; and he sware unto him: and he sold his birthright unto Jacob.

34 Then Jacob gave Esau bread and pottage of lentiles; and he did eat and drink, and rose up, and went his way: thus Esau despised his birthright.

Food can be very powerful. Adam and Eve lost their life of bliss, peace, abundance, glory and honour to food. It is rather unfortunate that many people today lose their destiny to food. It is amazing that in spite of the abundant food provided by God for Adam and Eve, they still developed an appetite for that which was forbidden.

It is quite easy to look at them now and judge them, but when you look at the world today, and see how food is wrecking the lives of many, you will be shocked. To fast is the most difficult thing to some people because their belly has become their master, and even in some cases, their god (Philippians 3:19).

When you read the account of how food destroyed Esau’s destiny and consider that the devil also tried to use food to destroy the destiny of our Lord, you will realise that addiction to food can actually devastate a person’s life. Click Here To Read – Open Heaven 12 August 2018

In Genesis 25:29-34, poor Esau a had just returned from his hunting expedition with juicy bush meat. However instead of settling down to prepare a meal with it , he lusted after Jacob’s pottage, which was ready to eat. Unknown to him, Jacob had been eyeing his privilege as the first-born. It did not take Jacob much time to start bargaining with Esau for what hr had always desired for from birth.

While Esau lusted for food , Jacob lusted for the birth right of the firstborn. Within a few minutes, they struck a bargain: Esau got the food he desired and Jacob went away with the privilege of the firstborn. By the time Esau realised the value if the birthright he sold for food, it was too late  (Hebrews 12:16-17). It may sound unbelievable, but many ladies have sold their pride of virginity for food.

Many housewives have become unfaithful to their husbands because of the generosity of a man  who comes to their aid when there is no food at home. A good number of men are now polygamous because they could not control their  appetite for the delicious meals of strange women. Beloved here’s the good news : although the first Adam fell for food, the second Adam triumphed over the temptation of food brought by the same tempter ( Luke 4:3-4).

As seen from Christ’s example, the only way to avoid falling into the devil’s temptation is to heed the word of God. If you will overcome the devil in the area of food, the end can never justify the means for you. A stone that is turned into bread will never digest if you happen to eat it; it’s has a lie designed by the devil to steal from you. So please, don’t eat your destiny. Rather, be guided by the word of God. A job you get by sleeping with the personnel manager will not last ; it will only bring sorrow and great disappointment to your life. Be wise today.

Open Heaven 13 August 2018 Prayer Point
Father, please help me to value faithfulness to your word above anything like food that represents a means of survival.

Open Heaven 13 August 2018 Hymn 18


Verse 1:
Onward, Christian soldiers,
Marching as to war,
With the cross of Jesus going on before.
Christ, the royal Master,
Leads against the foe;
Forward into battle
See his banners go!

Onward, Christian soldiers!
Marching as to war,
Looking unto Jesus,
Who is gone before.

Verse 2:
At the sign of triumph
Satan’s host doth flee;
On then, Christian soldiers,
On to victory!
Hell’s foundations quiver
At the shout of praise;
Brothers, lift your voices,
Loud your anthems raise.


Verse 3:
Like a mighty army
Moves the church of God;
Brothers, we are treading
Where the saints have trod;
We are not divided;
All one body we,
One in hope and doctrine,
One in charity.


Verse 4:
Crowns and thrones may perish
Kingdoms rise and wane,
But the church of Jesus
Constant will remain.
Gates of hell can never
‘Gainst that church prevail;
We have Christ’s own promise,
And that cannot fail.


Verse 5:
Onward, then, ye people,
join our happy throng,
Blend with ours your voices
in the triumph song;
Glory, laud, and honor,
unto Christ the King;
This thro’ countless ages
men and angels sing.
