OPEN HEAVEN 4 APRIL 2022 BIBLE READING 2 PETER 2:20-22
20. For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning.
21. For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them.
22. But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire.

Today’s Powerful Confession: I confess today I have decided to follow Jesus. No turning back. No looking to the side and no reconsidering. I am dedicated to the Kingdom of God. My household belongs to God. We are sold out to Christ. We will not backslide or be given to a reprobate mind. My children are for signs and wonders. They do not partake in the atrocities and evil going on in the world. We shine the light of Jesus into every darkness of this world in Jesus name. Amen. Hallelujah!

OPEN HEAVEN 4 APRIL 2022 MESSAGE
There are several reasons every Christian should pray and work earnestly never to backslide. One of these is that anyone who strays from the path of righteousness will dwell in the congregation of the dead (Proverbs 21:16).
When we got born again, we were translated from the kingdom of darkness into light we passed from death to life. To go back to the congregation of the dead is a terrible thing that all Christians must do everything possible to avoid.
Hebrews 10:38-39 states clearly that: “Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him. But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition; but of them that believe to the saving of the soul.”
God has absolutely no pleasure in backsliders. The moment a child of God backslides, he or she immediately becomes unfit to enter the Kingdom of God as we read in our memory verse today.
The moment you backslide, God says, You have lost the qualification required to enter into His kingdom. The interesting thing about this is that once the devil sees that a person is displeasing God, he comes in and pushes the fellow to the point where he can make a mockery of him or her.
I know many people who backslid and first thought that they were free from all the restrictions of the gospel but soon realised that they had become objects of mockery. Their end was indeed terrible.
The prodigal son for example backslid and thought he was free from his fathers rules and regulations, but he did not know that the devil was pushing him to the point where he would beg to eat food served to pigs.
As for me, I am determined never to backslide. If you are currently considering the pleasure of this world, remember that it is just a bait for the devil to get you. Hold fast that which you have in the Lord, so that someone else does not take your place in Christ (Revelation 3:11).

OPEN HEAVEN 4 APRIL 2022 HYMN
ONWARD CHRISTIAN SOLDIERS
1. Onward, Christian soldiers,
marching as to war,
Looking unto Jesus
Who is gone before;
Christ, the Royal Master,
Leads against the foe;
Forward into battle,
See his banner go.
Onward, Christian soldiers,
marching as to war,
Looking unto Jesus
Who is gone before.
2. At the name of Jesus,
Satan’s host doth flee;
On then, Christian
soldiers, on to victory!
Hell’s foundations quiver
at the shout of praise;
Brothers, lift your voices,
loud your anthems raise!
3. Like a mighty army
moves the church of God;
Brothers, we are treading
where the saints have trod;
We are not divided;
all one body we,
One in hope and
doctrine, one in charity.
4. Crowns and thrones may perish,
Kingdoms rise and wane;
But the Church of Jesus
Constant will remain:
Gates of hell can never
‘Gainst that Church prevail;
We have Christ’s own promise-
And that cannot fail.
5. Onward, then, ye people,
join our happy throng,
Blend with ours your
voices in the triumph song;
Glory, praise, and
honour, unto Christ the King;
This through countless ages,
Men and angels sing.
