OPEN HEAVEN 22 APRIL 2020 MESSAGE

Wealth is generally interpreted as an abundance of valuable possessions or money.

The Bible speaks of wealthy families, nations and also wealthy individuals like Abraham, Job, David, Solomon, and the Queen of Sheba.

Worthy of note is the fact that positive references to wealth are few in the Bible. Many statements of Jesus could be viewed as harsh criticisms of wealth.

In Mark 10:23-25, He said it is extremely difficult for a rich person to enter the kingdom of God. In Mark 4:19, the quest for wealth chokes God’s word.

Matthew 6:24 says one cannot serve God and Mammon. (1 Timothy 6:9-10) declares “the love of money” is the root of all kinds of evil. To wrap it up Luke 6:24 concluded by saying

Woe to you who are rich”. Revelation 3:17 says: “Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods and have need of nothing…

However, there is a good side to wealth. Since the beginning of the world, God has created an abundance of good things for human beings to enjoy.

Christians however need to have a good understanding of the true nature of earthly riches, and acknowledge God as the source of all blessings, Deuteronomy 8:18 says:

But thou shalt remember the Lord thy God, for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth…

Hence, having riches is not the problem, but having a wrong attitude towards it. Riches should be thankfully received, and Christians must value heavenly riches above earthly wealth.

Earthly riches are to be used in the service of the Creator and the true owner of all things. God has the power to make anyone wealthy, therefore His children do not have to live in penury.

I have however discovered that the poverty of many Christians is not out of laziness or lack of ambition, but due to a prayerless lifestyle.

If you would be rich, then you must be ready to knock on the doors of heaven with prayer, until your breakthrough comes.

OPEN HEAVEN 22 APRIL 2020 HYMNAL:

HYMN 24 – 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.

CHORUS:
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.

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

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

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

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?

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

Thank you Daddy G.O.,and may God continue to renew your strength sir.I believe so much in giving to recieve, but many of our pastors and ministers have played down on the need for prayer to have wealth, and have consistently preached only giving giving and giving as the only key to financial breakthrough. Again,I appreciate you for your balanced teaching of the word of God sir.
