OPEN HEAVEN 23 MARCH 2021 MESSAGE
A major sign of backsliding is when you discover that your mind is constantly filled with immoral thoughts.
A backsliding believer would have all manner of sinful thoughts flow through his or her mind.
When David backslid, he cried to God for restoration, saying:
Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me. – Psalm 51:10
His heart had become dirty. He discovered that immoral thoughts now filled his heart.
When you begin to harbour immoral thoughts or suddenly become comfortable in revealing clothes, it is a sign that your heart is far from God.
In the past, nobody would need to point out a harlot or a thug, they would be easily identified from their dressing.
These days, we have professing Christians who dress like harlots and thugs.
When a person backslides, all of sudden, God seems to be very far from the fellow. Don’t blame Him; His word says:
Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded. – James 4:8
When you are no longer intimate with God, what do you expect Him to do? David cried in Psalm 51:11:
Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me.
When Jesus bore the sins of the world on the cross, He had to cry out:
… My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? – Mark 15:34
God moved away because He cannot behold sin (Habakkuk 1:13) and He would also depart from any believer who harbours iniquity.
The Holy Spirit cannot stay with someone who is frolicking with sin; He is the Holy Spirit, not an unholy spirit.
When you stop reading your Bible daily you stop praying, you stop witnessing, you reduce your attendance of fellowship, you are drawing far from God.
This is the beginning of backsliding and it won’t be long before sin creeps in.
Are any of these signs of backsliding evident in your life?. Address them today.

Father, whatever is drawing me far from You, please remove it from my life today. If I am holding on to it too much, remove it by force, in the mighty name of Jesus.

OPEN HEAVEN 23 MARCH FEBRUARY 2021 HYMN
CONQUERORS AND OVERCOMERS NOW ARE WE
1. Conquerors and overcomers now are we,
Thro’ the precious blood of Christ we’ve victory
If the Lord be for us, we can never fail,
Nothing ‘gainst His mighty pow’r can e’er prevail.
Conquerors are we, thro’ the blood, thro’ the blood,
God will give us victory, thro’ the blood, thro’ the blood
Thro’ the Lamb for sinners slain,
Yet who lives and reigns again,
More than conquerors are we,
More than conquerors are we.
2. In the name of Israel’s God we’ll onward press,
Overcoming sin and all unrighteousness;
Not to us, but unto Him the praise shall be,
For salvation and for blood-bought victory.
3. Unto him that overcometh shall be giv’n,
Here to eat of hidden manna sent from heav’n,
Over yonder he the victor’s palm shall bear,
And a robe of white, and golden crown shall wear.
