OPEN HEAVEN 16 JANUARY 2022 MESSAGE

The Home Church model is the oldest form of worship centres right from the Old Testament days. It should be recalled that what is now known as Abrahamic faith in at least three notable religions of the world started as a family mode of worship.

The Bible tells of how the Abrahamic faith started within the household of Abraham in Genesis 18:19. lt is equally interesting to note that the New Testament Church was born, it
was within a household at the Upper Room (Acts 1:13).

This was where all the earliest apostles were residing when the New Testament Church was inaugurated by the coming of the Holy Ghost.

Greet Priscilla and Aquila my helpers in Christ Jesus.…Likewise greet the church that is in their house… Romans 16:3,5. Therefore, adopting the Home Church model is going back to the basics.

The Home Church model has been proven to be beneficial right from the birth of the Church and all the hostility from the world against it. The blessings accruing from this model are innumerable but we shall mention some of the spiritual ones today.

To start with, putting a Church in your house in the form of a House Fellowship Centre is like putting the Ark of the Covenant there and it brings abundant blessings like in the
case of Obededom in 2 Samuel 6:10-11.

Obededom became a national celebrity to the extent that even King David envied him and hurriedly took the Ark away from his household. The good news is that no one can take the Church away from you as long as you allow Jesus to remain in your house.

Corporately speaking, the Home Church model enhances all-round growth of the Church. Spiritually, members Of the House Fellowship and by extension, of the Church are groomed since they would be properly taken care of.

This model discourages the loss of souls in the multitude of the bigger mother-Church. As we can see from the scriptures we reviewed above, the Home Church model is a design from God and we must all return to it.

Beloved, decide to use your home as a sub-unit of a bigger Church today and you would be richly blessed by so doing, in Jesus’ name.

 

OPEN HEAVEN 16 JANUARY 2022 PRAYER POINT : Prayer Points For Open Heavens 16 January 2022

OPEN HEAVEN 16 JANUARY 2022 HYMN

NEARER MY GOD TO THEE

1. Nearer, my God, to Thee,
Nearer to Thee;
E’ en though it be a cross
That raiseth me,
Still all my song shall be
Nearer, my God, to Thee,
Nearer, my God, to Thee,
Nearer to Thee.

2. Though, like a wanderer
The sun gone down,
Darkness comes over me,
My rest a stone;
Yet in my dreams I’d be
Nearer, my God, to Thee
Nearer, my God, to Thee
Nearer to Thee.

3. There let me see the sight,
An open heaven;
All that thou sendest me,
In mercy given;
Angels to beckon me
Nearer, my God, to Thee
Nearer, my God, to Thee
Nearer to Thee

4. Then, with my waking thoughts
Bright with Thy praise,
Out of my stony griefs
Bethel I’ll raise,
So by my woes to be
Nearer, my God, to Thee,
Nearer, my God, to Thee,
Nearer to Thee

5. Or if on joyful wing
Cleaving the sky
Sun, moon, and stars forgot,
Upwards I fly,
Still all my song shall be,
Nearer my God to Thee,
Nearer my God to Thee,
Nearer to Thee!

The home fellowship is an important aspect of the church, it’s the base from where community evangelism takes place.
May God give us understanding.
