Open Heaven [14 February 2019] United in Rebellion?

Open Heaven 14 February 2019: [Thursday] Daily Devotional By Pastor E.A Adeboye – United in Rebellion?
UNITED IN REBELLION? – Thursday February 14th 2019
Memorise: Through hand join in hand, the wicked shall not be unpunished: but the seed of the righteous shall be delivered. Proverbs 11:21
Read: Genesis 11:1-6 (KJV)
And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech.
And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar; and they dwelt there.
And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them thoroughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for morter.
And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.
And the Lord came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded.
And the Lord said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.

Bible in one year: John 11, Isaiah 39:1-40:8, Hymnal: Sing hymn 3
While it is good to walk in unity with others through any venture in life, any form of unity that runs contrary to the perfect will of God is counterproductive.

Because of this truth, whenever there is a call to unite over anything, you must first find out what type of cause it is and what kind of unity is being called for. Uniting with people blinding can cause you untold agony. This is what happened to King Jehoshaphat who formed an unholy alliance with the idolatrous King Ahab (1st Kings 22). It was only the mercy of God that spared Jehoshaphat from becoming a victim of the untimely death that was reserved for another man. When people unite to actualise anything that is contrary to the will of God, it is a rebellious alliance. The unfortunate thing about rebellious alliances of the ungodly is that they will always end in frustration and shame, just as it happened at the Tower of Babel. God’s mandate to mankind was to replenish the whole earth and subdue it (Genesis 1:28, Isaiah 45:18), but they chose at that point to build a city and a tower with a motive that was contrary to God’s mandate for them. Hear what they said to themselves in Genesis 11:4:

“And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.”

They united to rebel against the divine purpose and God had to intervene so that His original plan could be achieved. This is why their unitary language had to be confounded.

 Open Heaven 12 February 2019 Tuesday Action Point:

The example of the Tower of Babel teaches us a good number of lessons, first of which is that whenever people gather to rebel against God and godliness, God always knows about it. I pray that the Almighty God will always reveal the evil plans of your enemies to you in Jesus’ Name. Secondly, God does not only expose evil conspiracies, He also acts against them. I decree that those who are united against the purpose of God for your life shall be confounded and their purpose shall be defeated in Jesus’ Name. One example of an evil conspiracy is the alliance of Ahithophel and Absalom against David (2nd Samuel 15:12). David prayed that God should overturn Ahithophel’s evil counsel, and He did (2nd Samuel 15:31; 2nd Samuel 17:23). A third lesson for us is that when God arises to foil the plans of those who diabolically unite against Him and His people, the enemies are left confused and in disarray. Beloved, are you uniting in rebellion with others? Please stop it. Never align yourself with rebels. Let these words of Proverbs 1:10 guide you in this regard:

“My son, if sinners entice thee, consent thou not.”
Action Point
Examine the company you keep. If their activities are rebellious, part ways with them and keep company with people of God.

  1. A Clever Way to locate Cost-free Grownup Chat Rooms!



    Chatting over the web is hugely popular. The problem is you will find few free adult chat rooms where
    we could discuss adult topics. Due to their popularity, webmasters
    increasingly plan to charge to the service. In this article,
    become familiar with how you can find hundreds of these chat communities, many of which are entirely free.

    It is now nearly impossible to find good places
    for adults to talk. Most of this really is due to the spread of instant messengers, virtual worlds, and
    social support systems. The few good chat sites available tend to be full or, worse still, full and intent on asking you to pay a subscription fee.
    To most people, it seems like the periods of
    excellent, fun, lively free places for adults to have an adult
    chat have died. Thankfully, there is a good clever way
    for us to still find good rooms.
    All from the big dating communities offer their members free adult chat rooms.
    Now, I'm sure you're thinking, "Yes, and the paid dating sites also charge a fee a regular membership because of these free rooms!"
    This is not always the case. Many such chat communities have the freedom, others have the freedom but have limited features
    for your non-paying members, while others still provide a cost-free service for women.
    The great thing about joining a big, well-known dating community is that you
    get given entry to a massive adult chatting community which includes hundreds,
    sometimes thousands of people utilizing it at any one time.
    Better yet, their rooms have a tendency to offer users the ability
    to hook inside their webcams. So you could possibly be chatting away in a very room
    and have to be able to click a user profile and watch them on their webcam, too!
