OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 12 AUGUST 2022 BIBLE READING 1 JOHN 4:4-6
4. Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.
5. They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them.
6. We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.

OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 12 AUGUST 2022 MESSAGE
I am the last child and only son of my mother. I had three elder sisters who always defended me against bullies. One day, my sister challenged me to fight back any time anyone tried to bully me. The next time a boy hit me, I ran crying to my sisters but they turned deaf ears.
I then went back to the boy, who started trembling as he sighted me from afar. To his shock, I gave him a punch. He hadn’t expected me to fight back. He slapped me and I retaliated. The more punches I gave him, the bolder I became and this was how I became a boxer.
Thanks to Jesus, the devil is the only one I box now. He is a subtle enemy that attacks God’s children unexpectedly. He devises various means to create a separation between God and His children in order to destroy them, but you must be wise. Satan is a noisemaker (1 Peter 5:8) who cannot withstand you when you resist him persistently.
You will discover that he has no stamina for anything too hot, so he will flee from you. Engage him in a fight through fervent prayers because God has assured that you cannot lose the battle as He is with you always.

OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 12 AUGUST 2022 HYMN
STAND UP, STAND UP FOR JESUS
1. Stand up! stand up for Jesus
Ye soldiers of the cross!
Lift high His royal banner;
It must not suffer loss.
From vict’ry unto vict’ry
His army shall He lead,
Till every foe is vanquished,
And Christ is Lord indeed.
2. Stand up! stand up for Jesus,
the trumpet call obey;
Forth to the mighty conflict,
In this His glorious day;
Ye that are men now serve Him
against unnumbered foes;
let courage rise with danger,
and strength to strength oppose.
3. Stand up! stand up for Jesus,
stand in his strength alone;
The arm of flesh will fail you,
Ye dare not trust your own:
put on the gospel armour,
And watching unto prayer;
where duty calls, or danger,
be never wanting there.
4. Stand up! stand up for Jesus,
The strife will not be long;
this day the noise of battle,
the next the victor’s song:
to him that overcometh
A crown of life shall be;
He with the King of glory
shall reign eternally.
