Open Heaven 9 August 2018 Memorise
Harden not your hearts, as in the provocation, in the day of temptation in the wilderness: Hebrews 3:8

Open Heaven 9 August 2018 Bible Reading – Hebrews 3:7-19

Be Faithful

7 Therefore, as the Holy Spirit says: “Today, if you will hear His voice,

8 Do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion,
In the day of trial in the wilderness,

9 Where your fathers tested Me, tried Me,
And saw My works forty years.

10 Therefore I was angry with that generation,
And said, ‘They always go astray intheir heart,
And they have not known My ways.’

11 So I swore in My wrath,
‘They shall not enter My rest.’ ”

12 Beware, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief in departing from the living God;

13 but exhort one another daily, while it is called “Today,” lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.

14 For we have become partakers of Christ if we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast to the end,

15 while it is said: “Today, if you will hear His voice, Do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion.”

Failure of the Wilderness Wanderers

16 For who, having heard, rebelled? Indeed, was it not all who came out of Egypt, led by Moses?

17 Now with whom was He angry forty years? Was it not with those who sinned, whose corpses fell in the wilderness?

18 And to whom did He swear that they would not enter His rest, but to those who did not obey?

19 So we see that they could not enter in because of unbelief.

Bible in one year – Job 25-29, Matthew 16:5-28

Unbelief has been reoccurring problem of mankind in spite of the abundant sign and wonder which the Almighty has demonstrated over the years. It is even more pronounced in this generation, where knowledge based on observation has tremendously increased as indicated by the Holy Spirit (Daniel 12:4).

Because the human mind is crafted from childhood  to be built around sense-based observations and not on faith, unbelief reigns supreme within the natural mind. No wonder the Lord Jesus Christ in Luke 18:8b asked in this question:

“Nevertheless when the son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?”

You may think unbelief is just a problem of the world, since anyone who comes to God must believe that He is, according to Hebrews 11:6. Well, let me announce to you that more than ever before, the problem of unbelief is now characteristic of the church. Click Here To Click – Open Heaven 8 August 2018

The early church also had this problem and this was why the Holy Spirit sent us this warning in Hebrew 3:12

“Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any if you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God.”

The devil has craftily repackaged this old menace of unbelief in our time. When the authenticity of the Bible is being questioned and the relevance of its content to the 21st century Church is being debated among high ranking church councils and leaders, should we be looking for unbelief elsewhere?

Decades ago, some scholars sowed the seed of unbelief, and the church seemed to be careless about it. They suggested that the New Testament needed to be “demystified”,  so that the modern man could embrace the divine literature. In essence, certain things such as the accounts of miracles should be removed from the new testament so that Christianity could sound logical to the modern mind. Click Here To Click – Open Heaven 10 August 2018

The Evangelicals and Pentecostals never thought that this  evil seed will find its way into their fold. Now we know better. Today we have a situation where several Church leaders don’t believe in the resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. Several so-called archbishops don’t believe Jesus is the only wat that leads to salvation. Several Christians don’t believe in the reality of eternal punishment in hell fire.

This and several other forms of unbelief has taken hold in the hearts of many simple hearted Christians who are too lazy to search the scriptures to experience of the truth of God’s word themselves, little by little, the core of our faith as Christians is being eroded away.

The question that Jesus asked about our faith, which seemed so farfetched in His days is increasingly becoming real in our day. This is why the Holy Spirit is saying to us  in Habakkuk 2:4b

“… but the just shall live by his faith.”

What is the state of your faith in God and his immutable word today?

Open Heaven 9 August 2018 Hymn 10

There shall be showers of blessing

1. There shall be showers of blessing:
This is the promise of love;
There shall be seasons refreshing,
Sent from the Savior above.

[Chorus]
Showers of blessing,
Showers of blessing we need:
Mercy drops round us are falling,
But for the showers we plead.

2. There shall be showers of blessing–
Precious reviving again;
Over the hills and the valleys,
Sound of abundance of rain.

[Chorus]

3. There shall be showers of blessing:
Send them upon us, O Lord;
Grant to us now a refreshing;
Come, and now honor Thy Word.

[Chorus]

4. There shall be showers of blessing:
Oh, that today they might fall,
Now as to God we’re confessing,
Now as on Jesus we call!

[Chorus]

Never did we require such words as such a time as now. Falsehood, new age ideas are freely peddled. But we must continue to guard our hearts diligently with all Care and urgency. Because out of it comes the issues of life. I have been thoroughly blessed by this teaching. My thanks to Daddy G.O who continues to feel the spiritual pulse of the time. The Lord increase you Sir
