OPEN HEAVEN 29 APRIL 2022 MESSAGE

The Bible says that the main purpose for eating should be to gain strength, not for indulging the flesh, as many people do. Food gives strength; however, it can also make a fellow weak spiritually and physically.

When you see people who have become obese because they eat whatever they like whenever they like, you will notice that they are usually weak. For example, such people will begin to pant heavily after minimal physical exercise.

That is a case of overindulgence in food, causing physical weakness. So, if you have noticed that getting up from your seat takes longer and more effort than it should, you need to check your diet.

Those who eat for strength don’t just eat anything; they eat what will make them strong. Fruits and vegetables will provide you with strength; eat a lot of them. Avoid eating foods with much sugar; they usually cause physical exhaustion.

Some people say they have a sweet tooth, and so they are always eating sugary things. May your eating habit not land you in the hospital. If you ask any doctor, they will tell you that sugar weakens the immune system and allows bacteria and viruses to multiply within the body.

If you eat for strength, then almost invariably, you would only eat enough food to give you strength. You would not eat so much as to become weak at the end of the day.

Some people like to eat until their stomach protrudes; this is dangerous to your well-being. You should eat just enough to give you strength. When you are maybe 80% full, you should stop.

When you load your body with too much food, you give it the task of digesting all that food at the same time and that will definitely cause some weakness.

Anyone who does not eat primarily for strength will also be weak spiritually. How can you pray for long when your tummy is filled with pounded yam? How can you pray when you are always feeling lethargic due to the kind of food you consume?.

It is for your own physical and spiritual good that you should eat, in moderate quantities, only foods that will give you strength.

OPEN HEAVEN 29 APRIL 2022 HYMN

WHEN WE WALK WITH THE LORD

1. When we walk with the Lord
In the light of His Word,
What a glory He sheds on our way,
While we do His good will,
He abides with us still,
And with all who will trust and obey.

CHORUS
Trust and obey,
For there’s no other way
To be happy in Jesus,
But to trust and obey.

2. Not a shadow can rise,
Not a cloud in the skies,
But His smile quickly drives it away,
Not a doubt or a fear,
Not a sigh or a tear,
Can abide while we trust and obey.

3. Not a burden we bear,
Not a sorrow we share,
But our toil He doth richly repay,
Not a grief nor a loss,
Not a frown nor a cross,
But is blest if we trust and obey.

4. But we never can prove
The delights of His love,
Until all on the altar we lay,
For the favour He shows,
And the joy He bestows,
Are for them who will trust and obey.

5. Then in fellowship sweet
We will sit at His feet,
Or we’ll walk by His side in the way,
What He says we will do,
Where He sends, we will go,
Never fear, only trust and obey.

The ALMIGHTY GOD BLESS YOU, Amen. The word of God says “don’t be filled with wine in it’s excess, but be filled with the holy spirit”. Wine resprents the physical substance for the flesh and can’t make a man’s spirit grow.

Do you not know that your body is a temple for the Holy Spirit? Why would God’s divine spirit want to dwell in a body full of whatever muck we put in it. It is the same living in a pigs pen. Please Abba have mercy on us, my outter and inner family, my neighbors, and those whom I happen to come accross. I repent for them and me, please keep us on your path of righteousness, let us not fall to bodily sins because of our lust in food. Remember adam and chava who made the whole race of… Read more »
