OPEN HEAVEN 19 JANUARY 2023 THURSDAY: LEARN FROM OTHERS

OPEN HEAVEN 19 JANUARY 2023 MEMORIZE: It repenteth me that I have set up Saul to be king: for he is turned back from following me, and hath not performed my commandments. And it grieved Samuel; and he cried unto the LORD all night. 1 Samuel 15:11

OPEN HEAVEN 19 JANUARY 2023 BIBLE READING 1 CORINTHIANS 10:1-11

1 Moreover, brethren, I would not that ye should be ignorant, how that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea;

2 And were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea;

3 And did all eat the same spiritual meat;

4 And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ.

5 But with many of them God was not well pleased: for they were overthrown in the wilderness.

6 Now these things were our examples, to the intent we should not lust after evil things, as they also lusted.

7 Neither be ye idolaters, as were some of them; as it is written, The people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to play.

8 Neither let us commit fornication, as some of them committed, and fell in one day three and twenty thousand.

9 Neither let us tempt Christ, as some of them also tempted, and were destroyed of serpents.

10 Neither murmur ye, as some of them also murmured, and were destroyed of the destroyer.

11 Now all these things happened unto them for examples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come.

OPEN HEAVEN 19 JANUARY 2023 MESSAGE

It repenteth me that I have set up Saul to be king: for he is turned back from following me, and hath not performed my commandments. And it grieved Samuel; and he cried unto the LORD all night. 1 Samuel 15:11

The first time I read the passage above, it was shocking to me that God would repent. I had read passages in the Bible like Ezekiel 33:14-16 where God said if He says to the wicked that he will die, but the wicked changes his ways, then He wouldn’t let him die anymore.

However, what is mind-boggling about Saul’s case is that this is a different kind of repentance. Of a truth, Saul was a very humble, diligent and responsible young man before he became king. In 1 Samuel 9:3-4, his father sent him on an errand to search for some missing animals.

Saul kept searching and was determined not to return home until he found them. God is the Alpha and Omega (Revelation 1:8), He knows the end from the beginning (Acts 15:18); how can somebody like that repent of the decision He had made? One day, the Lord used the scripture below to provide an answer to my question: Now all these things happened unto them for examples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come.

1 Corinthians 10:11 All the stories we read in the Bible, even some of the things happening around us today, are supposed to be lessons to us. One could therefore say that He looks for scapegoats to use to teach others a lesson.

Now, there are two questions you should ask yourself from this revelation: first, are you really learning lessons from the examples that God has given you in the Bible and around you? Have you learnt from Judas Iscariot’s case that greed can destroy a person both here and in eternity? Have you learned from Samson that sexual sins will reduce a strong man to a piece of bread (Proverbs 6:26)? Have you learnt from the examples around you?

OPEN HEAVEN 19 JANUARY 2023 KEY POINT: Prayer Points For Open Heavens 19 January 2023

Are you currently indulging in sin? What can you learn from the Bible about the repercussions of that sin?

1. Make a decision to be a contributor to the advancement of God’s Kingdom by purchasing a hard copy version of the Open Heavens devotional. You can buy it for your friends too as a potent evangelism tool.

2. Bring someone here tomorrow. Tell them about Jesus and direct them to these generational changing messages. 

God bless you

OPEN HEAVEN 19 JANUARY 2023 HYMN

I Am So Glad That Our Father In Heav’n

1 I am so glad that our Father in heav’n
Tells of His love in the Book He has giv’n;
Wonderful things in the Bible I see:
This is the dearest, that Jesus loves me.
Chorus
I am so glad that Jesus loves me,
Jesus loves me, Jesus loves me;
I am so glad that Jesus loves me,
Jesus loves even me.
2 Jesus loves me and I know I love Him,
Love brought Him down my lost soul to redeem,
Yes, it was love made Him die on the tree:
Oh, i am certain that Jesus loves me.
3. In this assurance I find sweetest rest,
Trusting in Jesus, I know I am blessed;
Satan, dismayed, from my soul now doth flee,
When I just tell him that Jesus loves me.
4. Oh, if there’s only one song I can sing,
When in His beauty I see the great King,
This shall my song through eternity be,
“Oh, what a wonder that Jesus loves me!”
5. If one should ask of me how can I tell?
Glory to Jesus, I know very well
God’s Holy Spirit with mine doth agree,
Constantly witnessing Jesus loves me.

I have learnt that sin leads to destruction but when one repent, our Lord is always ready to forgive because of his love for us. We need to be far away from sins and walk rightly in His ways and according to his words learning from other people’s mistakes to put us on the right track. Thank you Lord for loving us unconditionally in Jesus Mighty and Powerful Name AMEN.
