OPEN HEAVEN 15 DECEMBER 2023 MESSAGE

In my study of what it takes to become a favourite of God,

I saw in Luke 5:1-11, where the Bible tells us that after Jesus paid Peter a visit and performed that miracle of a boat-sinking catch, Peter left all and followed Him.

He didn’t sell the fish he caught that day.

However, all the other disciples also left everything they had and followed Him (Matthew 19:27),

so there must be something extra about Peter, and I saw a little bit of it in Mark 14:54 when Jesus was to be arrested and the disciples, fled.

The Bible says Peter followed after the Lord.

I know that people always like to underline the fact that he followed afar off, but at least he followed.

Where were the others?

Peter always followed Jesus because there was a rope permanently tied to Him and the Lord -the rope of love.

The love Peter had for Jesus was like a magnet drawing him closer to the Lord daily.

As soon as Peter recognised the Lord after His resurrection, he jumped into the sea to go and meet Jesus.

He abandoned the great catch of fish that he had just gotten – again.

Clearly, this shows that Peter was very much interested in the Lord, not what the Lord could give. He was interested in the Lord Himself.

Those who become God’s favourites are people who are not after what God can give them but after God Himself.

They just love God with all their hearts – whether He gives them anything or not.

It is this selfless love that made God choose Peter as His spokesman.

In Acts 2:14-40, on the day of Pentecost, who preached? Peter.

In Acts 3:1-8 at the Beautiful Gate, who spoke to the lame man? Peter.

When God wanted to uproot Ananias and Sapphira – the first pretenders in the Church, it was Peter who pronounced their death.

The Lord will not make you His favourite when He sees that your belly is actually your god and not Him (Philippians 3:19).

Some people want to be able to command the devil, but he mocks them because he knows that they love the things of the world, so they are under his control, not the other way around.

OPEN HEAVEN 15 DECEMBER 2023 HYMN

RCCG HYMN 11: I’ve Found A Friend In Jesus

1 I have found a friend in Jesus, He‟s everything to me; 
He‟s the fairest of ten thousand to my soul!
The Lily of the Valley, in Him alone I see
All I need to cleanse and make me fully whole.
In sorrow He‟s my comfort, in trouble He‟s my stay; 
He tells me every care on Him to roll. (Hallelujah)

Chorus:

He‟s the Lily of the Valley,
the Bright and Morning Star; 
He‟s the fairest of ten thousand to my soul. 

2 He all my grief has taken, and all my sorrows borne;
In temptation He‟s my strong and mighty tower; 
I have all for Him forsaken, and all my idols torn
From my heart, and now He keeps me by His power. 
Though all the world forsake me, and Satan tempt me sore, 
Through Jesus I shall safely reach the goal: (Hallelujah)

3 He‟ll never, never leave me, nor yet forsake me here, 
while I live by faith and do His blessed will;
A wall of fire about me, I‟ve nothing now to fear; 
with His manna He my hungry soul shall fill. 
Then sweeping up to glory, I‟ll see His blessed face, 
where rivers of delight shall ever roll.

The hymn of.the day is very significant to me. Because Satan is using the Nigerian police to threaten me. But the the LORD is my strength, my shield and buckler. That’s what the hymn tells me, even a wall of fire will be built around me. Hallelujah.
