Open Heavens 21 March 2018 2018 by Pastor E.A. Adeboye

Topic: Like Master, Like Disciple

Memorise: Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. John 14:12

Read: Acts 4:8-14 (KJV)

4:8 Then Peter, filled with the Holy Ghost, said unto them, Ye rulers of the people, and elders of Israel,
4:9 If we this day be examined of the good deed done to the impotent man, by what means he is made whole;
4:10 Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole.
4:11 This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner.
4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.
4:13 Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marvelled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus.
4:14 And beholding the man which was healed standing with them, they could say nothing against it.

Bible in one year: Deuteronomy 5-6, Galatians 4:1-20, Hymnal: Sing hymn 5

Message: Open Heavens 21 March 2018
Today’s memory verse focuses on one of the farewell statements of the Lord Jesus Christ that I consider to be of utmost importance to the Body of Christ today. This statement was addressed to anyone who believes in Jesus as the Messiah. Note that the mandate contained in this statement is not directed at the 12 disciples or any special group. It was directed at bishops, pastors, prophets, evangelists or other “highly spiritual” Christians.

Jesus was speaking to anyone who believes in Him, which means all Christians. Although all Christians claim to believe in Jesus, a vast majority are not even aware of this important mandate of the Master, while some others, due to unbelief, argue that it is impossible to walk in the reality of it. The word “works” in this mandate comprises of everything Jesus did during His whole earthly ministry. These include teaching, preaching, discipleship, miracles, signs and wonders. The question then is: are we Christians doing the works that Jesus did? The answer is obvious. May the Lord ignite His fire in His Church and wake us up to our responsibilities in Jesus Name.

Like Master, Like Disciple – Open Heavens 21 March 2018 2018 by Pastor E.A. Adeboye

Discipleship is the process of following Jesus Christ, serving Him and obeying Him in all things. Jesus encouraged His disciples to strive to become like Him so that they can represent Him in His absence (Mark 9:17-19, Matthew 10:25b). The template of discipleship instituted by the Lord demands that anyone who wants to be a true disciple must first deny himself (Matthew 16:24). Self-denial is all about sacrificing personal interest and preferences to focus on the will of the Master only. The Christian race becomes very easy for anyone who is able to take this very important step. Soon after I gave my life to Christ, the Lord helped me to give up my personal ambition of becoming the youngest occupant of the highest office in the academic world on the African continent. This decision helped me to commit the whole of my time, attention, money, and all other resources at my disposal to the service of God. It paid off, as the Lord took me from my humble beginnings to where I am today.

The Lord says no one can serve two masters; every disciple is therefore expected to be totally committed to God and His kingdom business (Matthew 6:24). Doing the works of Jesus entails going out to proclaim the message of the gospel, and demonstrating acts of mercy, love and compassion around the world. We must live in holiness as good examples to the world. Our message must be backed up with the manifestation of the power of the Holy Spirit in signs, wonders and miracles. We must win souls and disciples them to maturity. Nothing short of these is acceptable as the works of Jesus.

Prayer Point: Open Heavens 21 March 2018
Father, please grant me the grace to do greater works as mandated by Your Son, in Jesus’ Name.

Hope you are blessed!

Andrew Wommack 22 September 2018 Daily Devotional – The Two Greatest Commands

Published

Andrew Wommack 22 September 2018 Daily Devotional 

Andrew Wommack 22 September 2018 Daily Devotional 

Topic: The Two Greatest Commands

Scripture: Matthew 22:36 “Master, which is the great commandment in the law? Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.“

Text: Matthew 22:34-46

Jesus revealed that all of the Old Testament laws were designed to instruct us how to love God and love others. Therefore, the two commands that dealt directly with loving God and others (Lev. 19:18 and Dt. 6:5) were the most important.

Message: The religious leaders had become so obsessed with keeping every minor detail of the law that they had lost sight of its ultimate purpose. They neither loved God nor their fellow man, yet they thought they were keeping the law.

The same thing is happening today. Some of the cruelest acts of men towards their fellow men have been done in the name of the Lord by people who thought they were defending God’s holy commandments. However, if we violate one of the two greatest commandments in an effort to enforce some other commandment, then we are misapplying God’s Word just as these religious Jews did.

Andrew Wommack 22 September 2018 Daily Devotional – The Two Greatest Commands

The Old Testament law and the New Testament concept of grace compels men to the same end, that is to love God and their fellowmen. However, the motivations to this end are different. The Old Testament law motivated men to love God and their fellowman through fear of punishment if they failed to comply. The New Testament concept of grace freely gives men a God-kind of love that is unconditional and tells them to love others as they are loved.

It is possible to display actions of holiness, but not love God. It is impossible for God’s kind of love not to produce holiness. Holiness is a fruit and not a root of loving God.

TREM Daily Devotional 22 September 2018 

Topic: When You See Jesus

Scripture: “In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the LORD sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple.” Isaiah 6:1 (KJV)

Message: One thing is to be born again, but another thing is to truly see the Lord and what He has done on your behalf. There are many who are born again, but are yet to see Him as He is. The scripture declares that in the year king Uzziah died, Isaiah saw the Lord. That means Isaiah had been a prophet, called and anointed by God but had not seen Him. He has not come to terms with the God that called him and the God that was using him. God had to get Uzziah out of the way because Uzziah had become like a god to Isaiah. Thereafter, as soon as Uzziah was taken out of the way, his eyes were open for the first time to the God that called him.

TREM Daily Devotional 22 September 2018 – When You See Jesus

There are many of us believers that love God with all our heart but we’ve not truly seen Him because He is not reflected in the way we do things. Yes, you’re born again, you speak in tongues, you’re in church at all times but you have not really seen Him.

Imagine what happened to Isaiah after he beheld the Lord; he immediately realized his filth. He said to himself “…Woe is me!”, because he was then able to see himself in the light of God. “Woe is me, for I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips…” In other words, he was not qualified to come before the Lord. At that point, an angel from God’s presence placed hot coal on his mouth, and declared that his iniquity had been taken away, and his sins purged. Immediately something happened to him. Guess what Isaiah’s response was to God’s grace and mercy? He immediately made himself available for the Master’s use.

TREM Daily Devotional 22 September 2018 – When You See Jesus

Beloved, when you see Jesus, everything else loses value. He becomes the center of your life’s endeavours. Nothing will be too big a price to pay for the sake of Jesus, because He paid the ultimate price for your sake.

Further Reading: Isaiah 6:1-9
