Open Heaven 19 July 2022 TOPIC: The Sin of Ingratitude

Memorise: Wherefore the LORD God of Israel saith, I said indeed that thy house, and the house of thy father, should walk before me forever: but now the LORD saith, Be it far from me: for them that honor me I will honor, and they that despise me shall be lightly esteemed. 1 Samuel 2:30

Bible Reading: Proverbs 3:9-10 (KJV)

9. Honour the LORD with thy substance, and with the firstfruits of all thine increase:

 

10. So shall thy barns be filled with plenty, and thy presses shall burst out with new wine.

BIBLE IN YEAR: Psalms 125:1-5, Psalms 126:1-6, Psalms 127:1-5, Psalms 128:1-6, Psalms 129:1-8, Psalms 130:1-8, Psalms 131:1-3

Open Heaven 19 July 2022 Message

In Mathematics, there is something we call Newtons law of motion. A part of it states that for every action, there is always an equal and opposite reaction. In other words, whatever you sow, you will reap. Your behaviour will determine what God will do in response.

That is why the Bible reading today says you should honour the Lord with your substance and then God will respond with so many blessings that your barn would burst out. Giving God offerings, giving Him your first fruit, that is, your first income in the year, is a sign to show Him that you honour Him.

 

When you give it to Him, He is pleased with you and will respond by honouring you too. The quality of your offering is also a sign that shows God whether you honour Him or not.

 

If a beggar should ask you for money, you may give him the smallest note in your pocket but if it is a wealthy man who asks you for money, you give him the highest because you are not giving it to help him, but rather to honour him.

 

God knows how much money you have. He is the One who gave it to you in the first place. The quality of the offering you give Him out of your substance will tell Him whether you honour Him or not.

 

Believe me honestly, God pays close attention to the offering that you give. If you dont believe me, read Mark 12:41-44. He sat and was watching as everyone brought their offerings to the offering basket.

 

As He watched them, He also scored them and the fellow who got the highest score was a poor widow, because she gave all she had she honoured God. When God scores your offering, will He feel honoured or despised by what you are giving to Him? Beloved, don’t ever do anything that can make God feel despised.

 

The Most High God is not one to toy with at all. He may be a lamb, but He is also a lion. 1 Samuel 2:7 says: “The LORD maketh poor, and maketh rich: he bringeth low, and lifteth up.”

 

As we like to say in Nigeria, the one who made the pencil also made the eraser. The One who made you rich can also make you poor. The One who lifted you can also bring you low. You must therefore, run away from anything that can make you despise or dishonour Him.

Open Heaven 19 July 2022 KEY POINT:

Father, whatever I can do to dishonour You, don’t let me ever do it Lord.

Open Heaven 19 July 2022 HYMN: O WORSHIP THE KING

1. O worship the King,

All glorious above,

O gratefully sing

His power and His love;

Our Shield and Defender,

The Ancient of Days,

Pavilioned in splendour,

And girded with praise.

 

2. O tell of His might,

O sing of His grace,

Whose robe is the light,

Whose canopy space.

His chariots of wrath

The deep thunder-clouds form,

And dark is His path

On the wings of the storm.

 

3. Thy bountiful care,

What tongue can recite?

It breathes in the air,

It shines in the light,

It streams from the hills,

It descends to the plain,

And sweetly distils

In the dew and the rain.

 

4. Frail children of dust,

And feeble as frail;

In Thee do we trust,

Nor find Thee to fail;

Thy mercies, how tender,

How firm to the end,

Our maker, Defender,

Redeemer, and Friend!

 

5. O measureless Might!

Ineffable Love!

While angels delight

To hymn Thee above,

The humbler creation,

Though feeble their lays,

With true adoration,

Shall lisp to Thy praise.
