OPEN HEAVEN 21 AUGUST 2021 SATURDAY: YOU MUST CROSS THE FINISH LINE
OPEN HEAVEN 21 AUGUST 2021 MEMORIZE: But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. Matthew 24:13
OPEN HEAVEN 21 AUGUST 2021 BIBLE READING 1 CORINTHIANS 9:24-27
24. Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain.
25. And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible.
26. I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air:
27. But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.
Good Morning Beloved, have a blessed Saturday,
DAILY PERSONAL CONFESSION: I can never be dismayed, the power of God is at work in me. All power working contrary to His plan for me is destroyed. The mighty working power of Christ is doing wonderful things in and around me. I am blessed in the city, I am blessed at home, I am blessed in my going out and coming in in Jesus’ mighty name, Amen.

OPEN HEAVEN 21 AUGUST 2021 MESSAGE
Some theologians teach that once you are saved you are forever saved. This is the lie of the devil.
The truth of the matter is that there is temporary (provisional) salvation as well as eternal salvation.
One can be saved temporarily and be damned eventually if he falls out of the will of God, whereas God has also made provision for our eternal salvation if we abide by His word which is able to save us ultimately to the end (James 1:21).
The Bible says: “Better is the end of a thing than the beginning thereof: and the patient in spirit is better than the proud in spirit.” “Ecclesiastes 7:8”
There are examples of people who started well in the Christian race but fell by the wayside, chief among whom was Judas Iscariot one of the twelve disciples of Jesus Christ.
Beloved, do not allow yourself to be deceived, thinking that once you are saved, nothing can take away your salvation.
If Judas a disciple of Christ could fall and lose his eternal salvation, nobody should consider Heaven a certainty while living a life of sin.
Heaven is guaranteed only if you live righteously to the very end. Complete obedience to the word of God is a fundamental condition for eternal salvation.
James 1:22, 25 says: “But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.”
In addition to obeying the word of God, another condition is our endurance of persecution to the end.
Jesus Christ, in our memory verse of today categorically tells us that only those who endure to the end shall be ultimately saved (Matthew 24:13).
Why persecution? The Bible says Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution (2 Timothy 3:12).
This Scripture corroborates what our Lord Jesus Christ said in John 15:19
“If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore, the world hateth you.”
Beloved, let us endure to the end and we shall experience eternal salvation, in the name of Jesus.

OPEN HEAVEN 21 AUGUST 2021 HYMN
TAKE MY LIFE AND LET IT BE
I AM THINE O LORD
1. I am Thine O Lord
I have heard Thy voice
And it told Thy love to me
But I long to rise in the arms of faith
And be closer drawn to Thee.
Draw me nearer, nearer, blessed Lord,
To the cross where Thou hast died;
Draw me nearer, nearer, nearer, blessed Lord
To Thy precious, bleeding side.
2. Consecrate me now to Thy service, Lord
By the pow’r of grace divine
Let my soul look up with a steadfast hope
And my will be lost in Thine.
3. Oh, the pure delight of a single hour
That before Thy throne I spend
When I kneel in prayer, and with Thee, my God
I commune as friend with friend.
4. There are depths of love that I cannot know
Till I cross the narrow sea
There are heights of joy that I may not reach
Till I rest in peace with Thee.
