Open Heaven 3 November 2022 TOPIC: Frightening Miracles

 Memorise: For he was astonished, and all that were with him, at the draught of the fishes which they had taken. Luke 5:9 (KJV)

READ: Luke 5:1-9 (KJV)

1 And it came to pass, that, as the people pressed upon him to hear the word of God, he stood by the lake of Gennesaret,


2 And saw two ships standing by the lake: but the fishermen were gone out of them, and were washing their nets.


3 And he entered into one of the ships, which was Simon’s, and prayed him that he would thrust out a little from the land. And he sat down, and taught the people out of the ship.


4 Now when he had left speaking, he said unto Simon, Launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught.


5 And Simon answering said unto him, Master, we have toiled all the night, and have taken nothing: nevertheless at thy word I will let down the net.


6 And when they had this done, they inclosed a great multitude of fishes: and their net brake.



7 And they beckoned unto their partners, which were in the other ship, that they should come and help them. And they came, and filled both the ships, so that they began to sink.


8 When Simon Peter saw it, he fell down at Jesus’ knees, saying, Depart from me; for I am a sinful man, O Lord.


9 For he was astonished, and all that were with him, at the draught of the fishes which they had taken:

Open Heaven 3 November 2022 – Frightening Miracles


Open Heaven 3 November 2022 MESSAGE:

There are miracles and there are miracles. There are miracles that people hear about and just shout ‘halleluyah’ for shouting sake; they are not so moved. There are some other miracles by which the recipients are rendered almost speechless because they are experiencing joy unspeakable 1 Peter 1:8.

There are yet some miracles that are so wondrous that the recipient would find it hard to believe and thus conclude that he or she must have been dreaming. Finally, there are frightening miracles. These are those where the recipient becomes so frightened that he or she may even attempt to run away.


Many years ago, God provided a Mercedes Benz car for one of our elderly pastors in The Redeemed Christian Church of God. This is somebody who never completed elementary education and never dreamt that he would own any kind of vehicle, not to mention a Mercedes Benz. When my driver took the car to him and said, “Sir, this is a car for you and you will have your own driver, fully paid for” he asked, “What kind of joke is this?” My driver said, “I’m not joking; this is coming from the General Overseer”. He turned from my driver and began to walk away. My driver followed him, saying “Sir, please take the keys” but he increased his speed. He had gotten a miracle that frightened him. This month, God will give you a miracle that will frighten you, in Jesus’ name.


In our Bible reading for today, we see the template for getting frightening miracles. Peter had just fished all night and caught nothing. Of course, he must have been very tired and frustrated, but someone came to him, asking to use his boat and he said, “Yes” without charging Him rent to at least make up for the fruitless night he just had. Peter gave a sacrificial offering that day and Jesus in return gave him a miracle that frightened him so much that he told the Lord to stay away from him. In (2 Chronicles 1:6-7), Solomon gave a sacrificial offering and God made him the richest and wisest king that ever lived.



If you can do what no man has ever done for God, He will in return give you what He has never given any man.

Open Heaven 3 November 2022 HYMN 9: O Lord My God! When I In Awesome Wonder

1 O Lord my God!

When I in awesome wonder,

Consider all

The worlds Thy hands hath made

I see the stars,

I hear the rolling thunder

Thy pow’r thro’out

The universe displayed.



Then sings my soul,

My Saviour God to Thee;

How great Thou art!

How great Thou art!

Then sings my soul,

My Saviour God to Thee;

How great Thou art,

How great Thou art!


2 When through the woods

And forest glades I wander,

And hear the birds

Sing sweetly in the trees;

When I look down

From lofty mountain grandeur

And hear the brook

And feel the gentle breeze;


3 And when I think

That God, His Son not sparing

Sent Him to die,

I scarce can take it in;

That on the cross,

My burden gladly bearing,

He bled and died

To take away my sin.


4 When Christ shall come

With shout of acclamation,

And take me home

What joy shall fill my heart!

Then I shall bow

In humble adoration

And there proclaim,

My God, how great Thou art!
