OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 12 AUGUST 2023 BIBLE READING DANIEL 4:30-34
The king spake, and said, Is not this great Babylon, that I have built for the house of the kingdom by the might of my power, and for the honour of my majesty?
While the word was in the king’s mouth, there fell a voice from heaven, saying, O king Nebuchadnezzar, to thee it is spoken; The kingdom is departed from thee.
And they shall drive thee from men, and thy dwelling shall be with the beasts of the field: they shall make thee to eat grass as oxen, and seven times shall pass over thee, until thou know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will.
The same hour was the thing fulfilled upon Nebuchadnezzar: and he was driven from men, and did eat grass as oxen, and his body was wet with the dew of heaven, till his hairs were grown like eagles’ feathers, and his nails like birds’ claws.
And at the end of the days I Nebuchadnezzar lifted up mine eyes unto heaven, and mine understanding returned unto me, and I blessed the most High, and I praised and honoured him that liveth for ever, whose dominion is an everlasting dominion, and his kingdom is from generation to generation:
Today’s Powerful Confession: I embrace this new day with gratitude, aligning my heart to hear God’s whispers and drawing closer to Him through holiness, soul-winning, and fervent fellowship, becoming a custodian of divine secrets, leading me to distinction and impacting others with His love, in the mighty name of Jesus, Amen, Hallelujah!
OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 12 AUGUST 2023 MESSAGE
There are many dangers of ignoring God. Any fellow who ignores God can begin to reason like an animal. For instance King Nebuchadnezzar pronounced that all his achievements and accomplishments in Babylon were as a result of his own efforts.
He was boastful and refused to acknowledge God. God’s judgment was passed on him, and he became an animal for 7 years. Another danger is one could become mad.
For instance, King Saul ignored God’s instructions because he wanted to be honoured by his people. The Spirit of God left him, and instantly, an evil spirit from the Lord came upon him to torment him.
Another king thought he was like God because his subjects commended his speech. Unfortunately, he wasn’t as lucky as the other kings: he was eaten up by maggots. Please, if you have been ignoring God in any way, or you still doubt His existence, go to Him in prayers now, repent and ask for mercy.
Whoever ignores God is a fool.

OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 12 AUGUST 2023 HYMN
HYMN 9 – O JESUS, I HAVE PROMISED
1. O Jesus, I have promised
To serve Thee to the end;
Be Thou for ever near me,
My Master and my Friend:
I shall not fear the battle
If Thou art by my side,
Nor wander from the pathway
If Thou wilt be my Guide.
2. O let me feel Thee near me;
The world is ever near;
I see the sights that dazzle,
The tempting sounds I hear;
My foes are ever near me,
Around me and within;
But, Jesus, draw Thou nearer,
And shield my soul from sin.
3. O let me hear Thee speaking
In accents clear and still,
Above the storms of passion,
The murmurs of self-will;
O speak to reassure me,
To hasten or control;
O speak and make me listen,
Thou Guardian of my soul.
4. O Jesus, Thou hast promised
To all who follow Thee,
That where Thou art in Glory
There shall Thy servant be;
And, Jesus, I have promised
To serve Thee to the end;
O give me grace to follow
My Master and my Friend.
