OPEN HEAVEN 17 SEPTEMBER 2021 MEMORIZE: But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth. Acts 1:8

OPEN HEAVEN 17 SEPTEMBER 2021 BIBLE READING 1 CORINTHIANS 12:4-11

4. Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit.

5. And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord.

6. And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all.

7, But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal.

8. For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit;

9. To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit;

10. To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kind of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues:

11. But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will.

 

Good Morning Beloved, have a blessed Friday

DAILY PERSONAL CONFESSION: I confess today, My destiny is forever hidden in Christ and His power subdues all powers that are contrary to His will. I have divine understanding and ability. I have joy like a river inside of me flowing through my entire existence because Christ is in charge of my life. Hallelujah!

OPEN HEAVEN 17 SEPTEMBER 2021 MESSAGE

Towards the end of His earthly ministry, our Lord Jesus Christ gave us an assignment, commonly called the Great Commission: to preach the gospel to every creature.

He, however, mentioned a requirement we would need before going out to witness to the whole world about Him the power of the Holy Spirit (Acts 1:8).

Embarking on the work of missions without the power of the Holy Spirit is suicidal. This is the reason we have casualties among modern-day missionaries because some of them are not spiritually equipped.

While they have the zeal, many lack the spiritual empowerment for the work at this present time, just like Uzzah when the Ark of the Covenant was being moved.

“And when they came to Nachons threshing-floor, Uzzah put forth his hand to the ark of God, and took hold of it; for the oxen shook it. And the anger of the Lord was kindled against Uzzah; and God smote him there… for his error; and there he died by the ark of God.” “2 Samuel 6:6-7.”

Presumptuous sin killed Uzzah. This is the reason David prayed that God should deliver him from presumptuous sins: “Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins…” “Psalm 19:13”

We need to be endued in the Holy Spirit before we can be effective missionaries. While the missionary mandate must be kept by genuine children of God, we must be sure to receive the power of the Holy Ghost before we start.

We must therefore be baptised in the Holy Spirit. pray that as many as are thirsty for the baptism of the Holy Spirit shall be satisfied with it today, in Jesus name.

Going by the gift which the Holy Spirit offers us in the text of today, we can see the reason every missionary and soul-winner must be possessed by the Holy Spirit.

For example, the word of wisdom is necessary for effective evangelism. A preacher without the Holy Spirit is a mere orator.

A missionary needs the gifts of prophecy and the discerning of spirits as a weapon against the deceit of the devil. Of course, without speaking and praying in tongues, a missionary prayer life would be in shambles.

I pray that every soul-winner using this devotional today will be adequately equipped by the Holy Spirit for exploits, in Jesus name.

OPEN HEAVEN 17 SEPTEMBER 2021 HYMN

HOLY HOLY, HOLY! LORD GOD ALMIGHTY!

1. Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty!
Early in the morning,
our song shall rise to thee.
Holy, holy, holy! Merciful and mighty!
God in three Persons, blessed Trinity!

2. Holy, holy, holy! All the saints adore thee, casting down their golden crowns
around the glassy sea;
cherubim and seraphim
falling down before thee,
who wert, and art and evermore shalt be.

3. Holy, holy, holy! Though the darkness hide thee, Though the eye of sinful man
thy glory may not see,
Only thou art holy;
there is none beside thee
Perfect in pow’r, in love, and purity.

4. Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty!
All thy works shall praise
thy name in earth and sky and sea.
Holy, holy, holy! Merciful and mighty!
God in three Persons, blessed Trinity!

If Uzzah’s sin was tagged presumptuous, then the modern christian ‘women teaching in the church’ is very, very presumptuous – as it is written: “But I suffer not a woman to teach,…..” (1 Timothy 2:12)
