OPEN HEAVEN 17 APRIL 2021 SATURDAY: SUBSTITUTION

OPEN HEAVEN 17 APRIL 2021 MEMORIZE: Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent. Revelation 2:5

OPEN HEAVEN 17 APRIL 2021 BIBLE READING ESTHER 2:1-4

1. After these things, when the wrath of king Ahasuerus was appeased, he remembered Vashti, and what she had done, and what was decreed against her.

2. Then said the king’s servants that ministered unto him, Let there be fair young virgins sought for the king;

3. And let the king appoint officers in all the provinces of his kingdom, that they may gather together all the fair young virgins unto Shushan the palace, to the house of the women, unto the custody of Hege the king’s chamberlain, keeper of the women; and let their things for purification be given them;

4. And let the maiden which pleaseth the king be queen instead of Vashti. And the thing pleased the king; and he did so.

 

GOOD MORNING BELOVED, 

PERSONAL DAILY CONFESSION: I confess today, My life is exalted above all troubles and worries of life. Grace is made available for me and my household. My life is never a place of sickness or discouragement. I carry the everlasting gene of Christ in all the fiber of my body. I am moving in authority of Christ always. Hallelujah!

OPEN HEAVEN 17 APRIL 2021 MESSAGE

From today’s Scripture reading, we can conclude that substitution can be positive or negative.

To Vashti, it was negative, however to Esther, it was positive. The replacement that is coming your way shall be positive in Jesus’ name. Esther 2:17 says:

And the king loved Esther above all the women, and she obtained grace and favour in his sight more than all the virgins; so that he set the royal crown upon her head, and made her queen instead of Vashti.

Anyone who is able to install a king would also have the power to unseat him. Romans 13:1 says it is God who sets kings on thrones.

This is why anyone in a position of authority must be very careful not to offend the One who placed him or her there.

Nebuchadnezzar is a classic example of someone who did not remember that the Almighty rules the affairs of men. He did not realise his folly until he was turned to a beast.

You must, endeavour to keep anything God has given you, to avoid being replaced.

As believers, the story in Esther 2:1-17 should teach us some lessons.

We must watch so that nobody would take our crown (Revelation 3:11).

It is a pity that many so-called children of God are no longer holding fast their position of adoption, rather they are selling their birthright like Esau, for food.

Vashti momentarily forgot that she was a queen by Virtue of the fact that her husband was the king.

She flouted the king’s order and someone else took her crown.

To avoid being replaced, we must be careful to obey every instruction given to us by our Saviour, King and Husband – Jesus Christ, as we see in John 15:16-17.

The Scripture referenced above further enjoins us to bear fruits. When we do so, we honour and complement Jesus’ work of salvation.

However, when we refuse to bear fruit, we make His death a waste.

Refusal to bear fruits could lead to one’s substitution. May you never experience negative substitution Jesus’s name.

OPEN HEAVEN 17 APRIL 2021 HYMN

HYMN 18 – PASS ME NOT, O GENTLE SAVIOUR

1. Pass me not, O gentle Saviour,
Hear my humble cry;
While on others Thou art calling,
Do not pass me by.

REFRAIN:
Saviour, Saviour,
Hear my humble cry;
While on others Thou art calling,
Do not pass me by.

2. Let me, at Thy throne of mercy
Find a sweet relief;
Kneeling there in deep contrition,
Help my unbelief.

3. Trusting only in Thy merit,
Would I seek Thy face;
Heal my wounded, broken spirit,
Save me by Thy grace.

4. Thou, the spring of all my comfort,
More than life to me,
Whom have I on earth beside Thee?
Whom in heaven but Thee?

I was really blessed by this great revelation of God’s word on the need to stay focused on our core mandate to live a fruitful life as a believer so that another doesn’t take my place. God bless His servant more and more in Jesus name , amen.

Good God, thank you for your expository word. The bible says that the steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord (ps 37:23). There4, do not allow me to be in a place where I will compromise with the unregenerate
One’s to the detriment of my heavenly race. Also thanks for giving me your grace to overcome various trials that cropped up since 2018. I bless your name.
