Open Heaven [24 June 2018] The Two-Legged Instructions

THE TWO-LEGGED INSTRUCTIONS – Sunday June 24th 2018
Memorise: Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows. Hebrews 1:9
Read: Romans 1:28-32 KJV

28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:
32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

Message:-
During a solemn Assembly at the Redemption Camp, Nigeria, the Lord instructed me to teach my children who were present some pairs of “two-legged” divine instructions which every Christian should adhere to. 

Open Heaven 24 June 2018 The Two-Legged Instructions


What we see today is that most Christian should adhere to. What we see today is that most Christians are obeying only one of these instruction pairs while deliberately ignoring the other. Today, we will be considering the pair of instructions revealed in our memory verse.
While it is easy for every Christian to love righteousness, hating iniquity is what is beginning to fade away. Christians are beginning to give consideration to and show sympathy for iniquity. Issues that are clearly called out as iniquity in the Bible are being tolerated by Christians and have even become subjects of discussion in the Church of God. Such arts of iniquity include sexual immorality like fornication, adultery, homosexuality, bestiality and the likes. These two passages of scripture reveal the danger of harbouring such disposition:

And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do these things which are not convenient;”
Romans 1:32

Open Heaven 24 June 2018: [Sunday] Daily Devotional By Pastor E. A. Adeboye The Two-Legged Instructions


Based on the truth contained in these verses, a lot of Christians have fallen from the position of grace, and God has given them over to a reprobate mind. Although they are usually still able to speak all the right Christian words and phrases, their doctrines and principles are no longer in line with the Scriptures. Some have even gone ahead to start their own congregations where these false doctrines are being taught.

The Lord warns us against false prophets in Revelations 2:20. The only way to avoid falling prey to false prophets and ensure you remain on the straight and narrow path is to have a personal relationship with God. You need to study the word of God yourself to know what it says is right and wrong. Your Christian life should not be built on your pastor’s interpretation of Scriptures. I pray that you will grow in your knowledge of God as you study your Bible more.  
Prayer Point
Father, please grant me grace to be diligent in doing your bidding when it is convenient and when it is not.
Open Heavens Daily Devotional Lessons was written by Pastor E.A. Adeboye, the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, one of the largest evangelical Church in the world and also the President of Christ the Redeemer's Ministries.
Sing hymn 4
When we walk with the Lord in
the light of His Word,
What a glory He sheds on our
way!
While we do His good will, He
abides with us still,
And with all who will trust and
obey.


Chorus
Trust and obey, for there’s no other
Way
To be happy in Jesus, but to trust
and obey.


Not a shadow can rise, not a
cloud in the skies,
But His smile quickly drives it
away;
Not a doubt or a fear, not a sigh
or a tear,
Can abide while we trust and
obey.


Not a burden we bear, not a
sorrow we share,
But our toil He doth richly
repay;
Not a grief or a loss, not a frown
or a cross,
But is blessed if we trust and
obey.



But we never can prove the
delights of His love
Until all on the alter we lay;
For the favor He shows, for the
Joy He bestows,
Are from them who will trust and
obey.


Then in fellowship sweet we
will sit at His feet,
Or we’ll walk by His side in the
way;
What He says we will do, where
He sends we will go;
Never fear, only trust and obey.
