OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 13 SEPTEMBER 2022 BIBLE READING DANIEL 2:1-12
1. And in the second year of the reign of Nebuchadnezzar Nebuchadnezzar dreamed dreams, wherewith his spirit was troubled, and his sleep brake from him.
2. Then the king commanded to call the magicians, and the astrologers, and the sorcerers, and the Chaldeans, for to shew the king his dreams. So they came and stood before the king.
3. And the king said unto them, I have dreamed a dream, and my spirit was troubled to know the dream.
4. Then spake the Chaldeans to the king in Syriack, O king, live for ever: tell thy servants the dream, and we will shew the interpretation.
5. The king answered and said to the Chaldeans, The thing is gone from me: if ye will not make known unto me the dream, with the interpretation thereof, ye shall be cut in pieces, and your houses shall be made a dunghill.
6. But if ye shew the dream, and the interpretation thereof, ye shall receive of me gifts and rewards and great honour: therefore shew me the dream, and the interpretation thereof.
7. They answered again and said, Let the king tell his servants the dream, and we will shew the interpretation of it.
8. The king answered and said, I know of certainty that ye would gain the time, because ye see the thing is gone from me.
9. But if ye will not make known unto me the dream, there is but one decree for you: for ye have prepared lying and corrupt words to speak before me, till the time be changed: therefore tell me the dream, and I shall know that ye can shew me the interpretation thereof.
10. The Chaldeans answered before the king, and said, There is not a man upon the earth that can shew the king’s matter: therefore there is no king, lord, nor ruler, that asked such things at any magician, or astrologer, or Chaldean.
11. And it is a rare thing that the king requireth, and there is none other that can shew it before the king, except the gods, whose dwelling is not with flesh.
12. For this cause the king was angry and very furious, and commanded to destroy all the wise men of Babylon.
27. Daniel answered in the presence of the king, and said, The secret which the king hath demanded cannot the wise men, the astrologers, the magicians, the soothsayers, shew unto the king;
28. But there is a God in heaven that revealeth secrets, and maketh known to the king Nebuchadnezzar what shall be in the latter days. Thy dream, and the visions of thy head upon thy bed, are these;

OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 13 SEPTEMBER 2022 MESSAGE
From our Bible passage for today, King Nebuchadnezzar had a dream which he completely forgot when he woke from his sleep. He called all his magicians, astrologers and sorcerers to remind him of the dream and tell its interpretation.
None of them could and I don’t blame them; the task was so difficult that only the One that reveals secrets could solve it. At any special programme, people wonder when I mention the specific problem of an individual. No one but the God of Heaven who knows everything reveals them to me. He can also do that for you.
I remember many years ago, when I was to do my Ph.D. thesis. I had battled with a particular mathematical problem for so long, until one afternoon, in my sleep, when I got a revelation of how the Red Sea was parted into two. When I woke, I applied that method, dividing the problem into two sets of equations, with those who were similar on one side, and those not similar on the other.
That was how I got my solution. Do you know that God can give you ‘expo’ by revealing all the questions before you write any examination? Draw close to Him and He will never keep you in the dark on any matter.

OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 13 SEPTEMBER 2022 HYMN
LEAD US HEAVENLY FATHER
1. Lead us, heavenly Father, lead us
o’er the world’s tempestuous sea;
guard us, guide us, keep us, feed us,
for we have no help but Thee;
yet possessing every blessing,
if our God our Father be.
2. Saviour, breathe forgiveness o’er us:
all our weakness Thou dost know;
Thou didst tread this earth before us,
Thou didst feel its keenest woe;
lone and dreary, faint and weary,
through the desert Thou didst go.
3. Spirit of our God, descending,
fill our hearts with heavenly joy,
love with every passion blending,
pleasure that can never cloy:
thus provided, pardoned, guided,
nothing can our peace destroy.
