MEMORISE: But he answered and said, It is not meet to take the children’s bread, and to cast it to dogs. – Matthew 15:26

READ: Isaiah 59:1-2 (KJV)

1 Behold, the LORD’S hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear:

2 But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear.

Open Heaven 28 February 2021 MESSAGE:

Many people see God as a magician. They come to Him only when they need to see a ‘magic trick’; though they say what they want is a miracle. Such people want to live anyhow they like, yet have God perform miracles for them whenever they need it. I laugh When I encounter such people.


Jesus said that God is our Father and I know He prefers to be addressed as such. If you don’t believe me, read Matthew 6:9. He taught His disciples to pray saying “Our Father” God wants man to fellowship with Him for who He is and not just for the miracles they can get from Him. Think about it, if God created man with the sole purpose of seeking Him for miracles, then the Garden of Eden would not have had everything man needed to survive.

If you don’t have a relationship with God and you don’t fellowship with Him regularly, then He is not your Father. His miracles are for His children only, so don’t bother coming to Him for miracles.

The funny thing is that when sinners come to God just for miracles, they question His power when they don’t get it. The problem however is with them and not God. The Bible says:

“If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me:” – Psalm 66:18

Years ago, a woman was told that I have a special anointing for making the barren fruitful, so she attended one of our Conventions. In those days, we were not so many so I could lay hands on everybody with ease. When she came, I laid hands on her and she fell under the anointing. One year later, she returned complaining that in spite of my prayers, she was still barren. I was going to pray for her again when the Lord said, “Ask her how many boyfriends she has.” If I didn’t know the voice of God, it would have been difficult to ask because she was a rich and powerful woman. I mustered some courage and said “Errm… how many boyfriends do you have, Ma?” “Six” she answered. I then said “You have a husband and you also have six boyfriends. How then can you expect the Holy One of Israel to give you a child?”

My Father’s miracles are only for His children. Are you His child?

Open Heaven 28 February 2021 KEY POINT:

To qualify for a miracle, you must live a holy life.

Open Heaven 28 February 2021 HYMN 7: Have You Been To Jesus For The Cleansing Power?

1. Have you been to Jesus for the cleansing power?
Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?
Are you fully trusting in His grace this hour?
Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?

Are you washed in the blood,
In the soul cleansing blood of the Lamb?
Are your garments spotless?
Are they white as snow?
Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?

2. Are you walking daily by the Saviour’s side?
Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?
Do you rest each moment in the Crucified?
Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?

3. When the Bridegroom cometh will your robes be white?
Pure and white in the blood of the Lamb?
Will your soul be ready for the mansions bright,
Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?

4. Lay aside the garments that are stained with sin,
And be washed in the blood of the Lamb;
There’s a fountain flowing for the soul unclean,
O be washed in the blood of the Lamb!
