OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 13 JANUARY 2024 BIBLE READING 1 KINGS 11:1-11

[1]But king Solomon loved many strange women, together with the daughter of Pharaoh, women of the Moabites, Ammonites, Edomites, Zidonians, and Hittites;

[2]Of the nations concerning which the LORD said unto the children of Israel, Ye shall not go in to them, neither shall they come in unto you: for surely they will turn away your heart after their gods: Solomon clave unto these in love.

[3]And he had seven hundred wives, princesses, and three hundred concubines: and his wives turned away his heart.

[4]For it came to pass, when Solomon was old, that his wives turned away his heart after other gods: and his heart was not perfect with the LORD his God, as was the heart of David his father.

[5]For Solomon went after Ashtoreth the goddess of the Zidonians, and after Milcom the abomination of the Ammonites.

[6]And Solomon did evil in the sight of the LORD, and went not fully after the LORD, as did David his father.

[7]Then did Solomon build an high place for Chemosh, the abomination of Moab, in the hill that is before Jerusalem, and for Molech, the abomination of the children of Ammon.

[8]And likewise did he for all his strange wives, which burnt incense and sacrificed unto their gods.

[9]And the LORD was angry with Solomon, because his heart was turned from the LORD God of Israel, which had appeared unto him twice.

[10]And had commanded him concerning this thing, that he should not go after other gods: but he kept not that which the LORD commanded.

[11]Wherefore the LORD said unto Solomon, Forasmuch as this is done of thee, and thou hast not kept my covenant and my statutes, which I have commanded thee, I will surely rend the kingdom from thee, and will give it to thy servant.

 

 

OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 13 JANUARY 2024 MESSAGE

Sexual sin usually starts from a harmless crush, which can be described as a brief but intense infatuation for someone.

It has the ability to make you lose your sleep until you see or speak with the fellow.

When one of my sons told me that he was always excited to resume in the office every day because he would see his secretary, I knew he would soon get ‘crushed’ by that crush, so I encouraged him to cut off every form of communication with her immediately because the Bible says, “if a hand or an eye will prevent you from making it to Heaven, cut it off or pluck it out” (Matthew 5:28-30).

Thank God he listened to me, and his destiny was preserved.

King Solomon, with all his wisdom, was crushed by his lust for strange women who took his heart away from God.

In the latter days of his life, he shouted in regret, “Vanity of vanities, all is vanity” (Ecclesiastes 1:2).

My dear child, don’t engage in things that will crush your future. Ignore vanities and focus on doing things that please God.

I pray that your tomorrow will be great in Jesus’ name.

 

OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 13 JANUARY 2024 ACTION POINT

Be wise, crush that crush now before it crushes you.

1 Deeper, deeper in the love of Jesus
Daily let me go;

More of grace to know.

O deeper yet I pray,
And higher evry day,
And wiser, blessed, Lord,
In Thy precious, holy word.

Till my life is wholly lost in Jesus
And His perfect will.

Till all conflict past,
Finds me congueror, and in His own image
Perfected at last.
