OPEN HEAVEN 27 OCTOBER 2022 THURSDAY: SOLD OUT TO GOD?
OPEN HEAVEN 27 OCTOBER 2022 MEMORIZE: For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain. Philippians 1:21
OPEN HEAVEN 27 OCTOBER 2022 BIBLE READING ROMANS 8:35-39
35. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
36. As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.
37. Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
38. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
39. Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

OPEN HEAVEN 27 OCTOBER 2022 MESSAGE
A new evangelist travelled to a village with the sole aim of winning souls into the Kingdom of God. His mission was very successful and many of the villagers gave their lives to Christ. After spending some months with them, he decided to go to the next village to win souls too.
The villagers told him that there were lions between both villages, and if anyone ever tried to cross from one to the other, the lions would eat him up. The evangelist, however, insisted on going to the next village to preach. When it seemed as if he would not back down, one of the villagers decided that he would go ahead of him so that the lions could eat him and then be too filled up to eat the evangelist as he crossed over to the other village to preach.
That villager was completely sold out to God. He was sold out to the point of being willing to lay down his life for the gospel to be preached to sinners. Are you sold out to Christ? John 12:25 says He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal.
When I was a lecturer at the University of Ilorin, there was a village where the people hated Christians so much that they could kill anyone who went there to preach. I gathered people and we went there preaching from door to door and sharing tracts.
Twice, we were reported to the village head and we told him that we were only sharing tracts and speaking to the people. When it started getting dark, my people suggested that we should go but I told them, We will wait and show the film, as planned. To the glory of God, those villagers came out for the altar call at night.
Today, in that same community, there are many parishes of The Redeemed Christian Church of God. The community is now won to Christ because we were sold out to God and did not shy away from the challenge of preaching the gospel in a hostile environment.
If a person loves his or her life so much that they cannot risk it for the gospel of Christ, such a person will lose that same life. God is not interested in you if you are not totally sold out to Him.
In Revelation 3:15-16, He said you should either be hot or cold. If you are lukewarm, He will spew you out of His mouth. You are either sold out to Him or not for Him at all. Choose wisely today.

OPEN HEAVEN 27 OCTOBER 2022 HYMN
WILL YOUR ANCHOR HOLD IN THE STORMS OF LIFE
1. Will your anchor hold in the storms of life
When the clouds unfold their wings of strife?
When the strong tides lift, and the cables strain,
Will your anchor drift, or firm remain?
We have an anchor that keeps the soul
Steadfast and sure while the billows roll;
Fastened to the Rock which cannot move,
Grounded firm and deep in the Saviour’s love!
2. It is safely moored, ‘twill the storm withstand,
For ’tis well secured by the Saviour’s hand,
And the cables, passed from His heart to mine,
Can defy the blast through strength divine.
3. It will firmly hold in the straits of fear,
When the breakers have told the reef is near; Though the tempest rage and the wild winds blow,
Not an angry wave shall our bark o’erflow.
4. It will surely hold in the flood of death,
When the waters cold, chill our latest breath,
On the rising tide it can never fail, While our hopes abide within the veil!
5. When our eyes behold, through the gathering night
The city of gold, our harbour bright,
We shall anchor fast by the heavenly shore,
With the storms all past for evermore.
