Open Heavens 8 October 2023 TOPIC: The Way Out

MEMORISE: “Wherefore say unto the children of Israel, I am the LORD, and I will bring you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians, and I will rid you out of their bondage, and I will redeem you with a stretched out arm, and with great judgments:“ Exodus 6:6

READ: Luke 7:11-15 (KJV)

11 Soon afterwards, he went to a city called Nain. Many of his disciples, along with a great multitude, went with him. 

12 Now when he came near to the gate of the city, behold, one who was dead was carried out, the only son of his mother, and she was a widow. Many people of the city were with her. 

13 When the Lord saw her, he had compassion on her, and said to her, “Don’t cry.” 

14 He came near and touched the coffin, and the bearers stood still. He said, “Young man, I tell you, arise!” 

15 He who was dead sat up, and began to speak. And he gave him to his mother.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Matthew 18-20

Open Heavens 8 October 2023 MESSAGE:

Message: Jesus being The Way also implies that He is The Way out of problems. There are problems in this world that you cannot solve no matter how intelligent you are, but there is no problem that Jesus cannot solve.

Jesus Christ is the way out of sorrow. In our Bible text for today, we read of a widow whose only son died. Nobody needs to tell us that she was in sorrow.

She had known days of joy. The day she gave birth to this boy, she must have had joy, but then the devil came in and steadily began to change her joy to sorrow, first by killing her husband and then coming for her only son.

I can assure you that as they were going towards the burial ground, she was getting deeper and deeper into sorrow because she knew that there were people amongst those following her,

pretending to be weeping with her and saying in their hearts, “Why is your case so bad? Are you the only one in town?

There must be something you have done wrong that God is punishing you for”, but then she met Jesus Christ and the tide turned.

For the mere fact that you are reading this today, sorrow is banished from your life forever, in Jesus’ name. I was invited to preach at a private event in lkoyi some years ago.

I was going to preach on the topic, ‘You need a miracle’, but as I waited in the hostess’ living room before the event started and observed the splendour of the house,

I thought to change my topic to ‘ That Man Should Praise The Lord’. I felt the hostess and her guests appeared to have everything they needed already,

but the Almighty God said I should talk to them about “You need a miracle”. I learnt later on that the woman had only one son who had gone so deeply into drugs that when his mother refused to give him extra money to buy them,

he planted some in her bag when she was travelling to London so that she could be arrested at the airport. Everything seemed nice and beautiful on the outside,

but deep inside, there was sorrow. That day as I preached, the young man gave his life to Jesus, and the mother from that day on knew joy.

If you too want to have joy for the rest of your life, the only way is through Jesus Christ. Let Him carry your burdens (Matthew 11:28).

Open Heavens 8 October 2023: Key Point

Jesus gives rest to the burdened heart, but you would have to surrender to Him first.

Open Heavens 8 October 2023 HYMN 10: – In Christ Alone

1 In Christ alone my hope is found

He is my Light, my Strength, my Song

This Cornerstone, this Solid Ground

Firm through the fiercest drought and storm

What heights of love, what depths of peace

When fears are stilled, when strivings cease

My Comforter, my All in All

Here in the love of Christ I stand

2 In Christ alone, Who took on flesh

Fullness of God in helpless Babe

This Gift of love and righteousness

Scorned by the ones He came to save

‘Til on that cross as Jesus died

The wrath of God was satisfied

For every sin on Him was laid

Here in the death of Christ I live

3 There in the ground His body lay

Light of the world by darkness slain

Then bursting forth in glorious day

Up from the grave He rose again

And as He stands in victory

Sin’s curse has lost its grip on me

For I am His and He is mine

Bought with the precious blood of Christ

4 No guilt in life, no fear in death

This is the power of Christ in me

From life’s first cry to final breath

Jesus commands my destiny

No power of hell, no scheme of man

Can ever pluck me from His hand

‘Til He returns or calls me home

Here in the power of Christ I’ll stand.
