Open Heavens 11 December 2023 TOPIC: Embrace His Word Completely

MEMORISE:"But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men." Matthew 15:9

READ: Matthew 15:7-9 (KJV)

7 Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying,

8 This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me.

Open Heaven For Today 2023 – Open Heavens 11 December

9 But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Colossians 1-4

Open Heaven 11 December 2023 MESSAGE:

Occasionally, particularly when I find myself amongst top academicians and theologians, they like to tell me that you can believe whatever is in the New Testament, but the Old Testament should not be believed.

This is because anytime they find something in the Old Testament that is not convenient for them, they want to brush it aside.

Malachi 3:10 for example that talks about how tithing is ignored by such people. They ignore Proverbs 3:9-10 too.

Then I ask them, what about Isaiah 54:17 which says no weapon fashioned against you shall prosper?

What about “The Lord is my shepherd I shall not want” in Psalm 23:1? What about Deuteronomy 28:13 which says you shall be head and not the tail, you shall be above only and not beneath?

I encourage you to know that every Scripture is written by the Holy Spirit and every bit of it must be embraced. Aside from Scripture, there are people who do something and say, “God will understand”.

The Bible does not say anywhere that God understands sin, but rather that He hates it. Psalm 5:4 is very clear about this: For thou art not a God that hath pleasure in wickedness: neither shall evil dwell with thee.

If you call yourself a Christian, you have to stay away from sin. 2 Timothy 2:19 says: Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his.

And, let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity. If you are lukewarm, God pushes you out of Himself forcefully and if you are away from God, then you are with the devil.

He says in Revelation 3:16, “So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.

”Don’t be lukewarm. If you jettison holiness during tough times, then you are not a child of God.

Open Heaven 11 December 2023 Devotional: Key Point

Your claim to Christianity is not genuine if you live holy only when it is convenient for you.

Open Heaven 11 December 2023 HYMN 23: – Take My Life And Let It Be

1 Take my life and let it be

consecrated, Lord, to thee.

Take my moments and my days;

let them flow in endless praise,

let them flow in endless praise.

2 Take my hands and let them move

at the impulse of thy love.

Take my feet and let them be

swift and beautiful for thee,

swift and beautiful for thee.

3 Take my voice and let me sing

always, only, for my King.

Take my lips and let them be

filled with messages from thee,

filled with messages from thee.

4 Take my silver and my gold;

not a mite would I withhold.

Take my intellect and use

every power as thou shalt choose,

every power as thou shalt choose.

5 Take my will and make it thine;

it shall be no longer mine.

Take my heart it is thine own;

it shall be thy royal throne,

it shall be thy royal throne.

6 Take my love; my Lord, I pour

at thy feet its treasure store.

Take myself, and I will be

ever, only, all for thee,

ever, only, all for thee.

Open Heavens 10 December 2023 TOPIC: Believe His Word

MEMORISE:"God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?" Numbers 23:19

READ2 Corinthians 1:18-20 (KJV)

18 But as God is true, our word toward you was not yea and nay.

19 For the Son of God, Jesus Christ, who was preached among you by us, even by me and Silvanus and Timotheus, was not yea and nay, but in him was yea.

Open Heaven For Today 2023 – Open Heavens 10 December

20 For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Philippians 1-4

Open Heaven 10 December 2023 MESSAGE:

Isaiah 6:1-3 tells us that the Almighty God, even though He is all-powerful, loving and glorious, wants to be known for one thing above all others and that is that He is holy.

He is a holy God and that makes it impossible for Him to lie.

Numbers 23:19 says God is not a man that He should lie, neither the son of man that He should repent.

Psalm 119:89 says His word is forever settled – in other words, you can rely on His word.

Psalm 33:8-9 says once He speaks, it is done.

Why must we believe in Jesus Christ? John 14:6 says He is the Way, the Truth and the Life.

If you believe in God the Father and God the Son, it automatically follows that you will believe in God the Holy Spirit.

This is because John 15:26 says the Holy Spirit proceeds from God the Father.

2 Peter 1:20-21 says the Bible is written by the hands of men who were inspired by the Holy Spirit. In other words, your Bible was written by the Holy Spirit, using the hands of men.

Since 1 John 4:6 says the Holy Spirit is the Spirit of truth, then it follows that everything you find in Scripture is the fruth.

Unless you believe the entire Scripture, you are not even saved.

John 1:11-12 says:

He came unto his own, and his own received him not.

But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:

If you are truly saved and you believe the entire Scripture, then you can go ahead and claim your healing because it is written in 1 Peter 2:24 that by His stripes we were healed – past tense.

All that God is waiting for you to manifest divine health is simply your willingness to obey every word of His. You can also claim your deliverance if only you would believe.

John 8:32 and 36 says you shall know the truth, the truth shall make you free and whosoever the Son sets free shall be free indeed.

There are lots of blessings available to the believer. All you have to do is believe in God, believe in His word, and everything He has promised in the Bible will be yours.

Open Heaven 10 December 2023 Devotional: Prayer Point

Do you really believe in God’s word? If you do, then your actions would be in line with Scripture.

Open Heaven 10 December 2023 HYMN 21: – Standing On The Promises Of Christ My King

1 Standing on the promises of Christ, my King,

Through eternal ages let his praises ring;

Glory in the highest, I will shout and sing,

Standing on the promises of God.


Standing, standing,

Standing on the promises of God, my Savior;

Standing, standing,

I’m standing on the promises of God.

2 Standing on the promises that cannot fail.

When the howling storms of doubt and fear assail,

By the living Word of God I shall prevail,

Standing on the promises of God. [Refrain]

3 Standing on the promises of Christ, the Lord,

Bound to him eternally by love’s strong cord,

Overcoming daily with the Spirit’s sword,

Standing on the promises of God. [Refrain]

4 Standing on the promises I cannot fall,

List’ning ev’ry moment to the Spirit’s call,

Resting in my Savior as my all in all,

Standing on the promises of God. [Refrain]

MEMORISE:"Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you." 1 Peter 5:7

READ: Psalm 91:1-9 (KJV)

1 He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

2 I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.

3 Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.

4 He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.

5 Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;

6 Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.

7 A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.

8 Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.

9 Because thou hast made the Lord, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation;

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Ephesians 4-6

Open Heaven 9 December 2023 MESSAGE:

There are people who go beyond worrying about the basic things of if to fearing the unknown.

They worry about all they have disappearing because Proverbs 23:5 says riches can develop wings and fly away.

The Almighty God says “Don’t worry at all” because He is the All-Sufficient God (Genesis 17:1).

The One who gave you what you have now has much more in store for you. Philippians 4:19 says you should not worry because He will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory.

Do you know how rich He is in glory? Isaiah 6:3 says the whole earth is full of His glory.

He is extremely rich in glory and since He has promised to supply your needs according to His riches in glory, then you know that supply will never run dry.

Proverbs 10:22 says: “The blessing of the LORD, it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it.”

If your riches are from God, then you have absolutely nothing to worry about; otherwise, understand that money gotten from any other source outside God will come with sorrows.

You can be very rich and have many servants, but when you have grown old and feeble, you can call them and they may not answer.

In fact, the Bible calls old age the evil days (Ecclesiastes 12:1-3). Some people, even though they are surrounded by friends, grandchildren, servants and everything they need, still worry.

They worry about what is going to happen when they die. They worry about where they will spend eternity.

In Psalm 37:25, David said, “I have been young, and now am old; yet have l not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.”

The same David told us in Psalm 34:10, “The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger: but they that seek the LORD shall not want any good thing.”

He concluded Psalm 23 by saying that there is only one thing for you to look forward to if you are on the side of the Lord and that is goodness and mercy all the days of your life (verses 5 and 6).

As long as you are on the side of the Lord, put your mind at rest, God will take care of you.

Open Heaven 9 December 2023 Devotional: Key Point

As long as you are on the side of the Lord, you don’t need to worry.

Open Heaven 9 December 2023 HYMN 14: – O What A Wonderful, Wonderful Day

1 O what a wonderful, wonderful day,

Day I will never forget;

After I’d wandered in darkness away,

Jesus my Saviour I met.

O what a tender, compassionate friend

He met the need of my heart;

Shadows dispelling, with joy I am telling,

He made all the darkness depart!


Heaven came down and glory fill my soul,

When at the cross my Saviour made me whole;

My sins were washed away

And my night was tuned to day

Heaven came down and glory filled my soul!

2 Born of the Spirit with life from above

Into God’s family divine,

Justified fully thru Calvary’s love,

O what a standing is mine!

And the transaction so quickly was made

When as a sinner I came,

Took of the offer of grace He did proffer

He saved me, O praise His dear name!

3 Now I’ve a hope that will surely endure

After the passing of time;

I have a future in heaven for sure,

There in those mansions sublime.

And it’s because of that wonderful day

When at the cross I believed;

Riches eternal and blessings supernal

From His precious hand I received.

MEMORISE:"Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me." John 14:1

READ: Matthew 6:25-34 (KJV)

25 Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?

26 Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?

27 Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?

28 And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:

29 And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.

30 Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?

31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?

32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.

33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Ephesians 1-3

Open Heaven 8 December 2023 MESSAGE:

In our memory verse for today, the words “Let not your heart be troubled” simply mean “Don’t worry”.

Whenever the Bible says “Don’t worry” it means there is something that could cause a person some anxiety.

Whenever you hear God say “Fear not” it means there is something frightening around.

The Bible says in Matthew 6:31 that you should not worry because that is what the heathens do.

If you really have faith in God, if you really believe He loves you, then you should not worry about anything.

The God that feeds the birds in the air is capable of feeding you too.

The God that clothes the lilies in the field so beautifully will clothe you too.

If you are sure that He is your Father indeed, then you have no reason to worry.

The son of a billionaire is never worried about what to eat or what to wear.

Your Father is not just a billionaire - all the gold and silver in the world is His (Haggai 2:8).

He promised in John 14:14 that if you ask for anything in His name, He will give it to you; anything means ANYTHING.

While He has promised to give us whatever we ask of Him, we must however, not be lazy. I have discovered that many Christians are lazy.

There are jobs I have given to Christians to do and they charge much higher than the normal fee, yet didn’t deliver on time and did the work shabbily.

A similar job given to an unbeliever would not only cost less but would be thoroughly done and delivered within the agreed timeframe.

2 Thessalonians 3:10 says God does not support laziness and anyone who is lazy should not eat.

Anyone who calls himself or herself a Christian and is lazy is not a child of God, and so the Lord is not under any obligation to provide for him or her.

There are many people who sit around all day saying they haven’t found a job, that is why they are not working.

What a lazy attitude!

Get up and find something productive to do with your time.

Look within you; there must be one skill you have that you can use to meet other people’s needs.

If you remain focus and continue to improve yourself, you will definitely begin to have some income from it sooner or later.

Years ago, there was a man who didn’t find a job so he started frying akara (bean cakes) by the road and within months, had bought two motorcycles and was earning income from them.

God has promised to bless the work of your hands (Deuteronomy 28:12), but you must first show Him the work.

Open Heaven 8 December 2023 Devotional: Key Point

Don’t worry. Believe in God and He will provide all your needs, as long as you are not lazy.

Open Heaven 8 December 2023 HYMN 29: – When Peace Like A River Attendeth My Way

1 When peace like a river attendeth my way,

when sorrows like sea billows roll;

whatever my lot, thou hast taught me to say,

“It is well, it is well with my soul.”

Refrain (may be sung after final stanza only):

It is well with my soul;

it is well, it is well with my soul.

2 Though Satan should buffet, though trials should come,

let this blest assurance control:

that Christ has regarded my helpless estate,

and has shed his own blood for my soul. Refrain

3 My sin oh, the bliss of this glorious thought!

my sin, not in part, but the whole,

is nailed to the cross, and I bear it no more;

praise the Lord, praise the Lord, O my soul! Refrain

4 O Lord, haste the day when my faith shall be sight,

the clouds be rolled back as a scroll;

the trump shall resound and the Lord shall descend;

even so, it is well with my soul. Refrain

MEMORISE: “When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of man am?” – Matthew 16:13 (KJV)

READ: Hebrews 11:4-11 (KJV)

4 By faith Abel offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, by which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts: and by it he being dead yet speaketh.

5 By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God.

6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

7 By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith.

8 By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went.

9 By faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as in a strange country, dwelling in tabernacles with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise:

10 For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God.

11 Through faith also Sara herself received strength to conceive seed, and was delivered of a child when she was past age, because she judged him faithful who had promised.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Galatians 4-6

Open Heaven For Today 2023 MESSAGE

Whether you realise it or not, people are watching you and tagging you with an identity. 

The tag they give you is dependent on their observations about what you do regularly.

If the people around you are to be honest with you, there is something in particular that they know you for and you need to know what it is because that thing is likely a reflection of who you are. 

You may not like what they call you, but if everyone agrees that a tag or identity fits you, rather than fight them for tagging you that way, you can just take it as feedback and change your character.

Also Read:Open Heaven 7 December 2023 – What Are You Known For?

It could be offensive when you can remember your positive attributes, but people seem to only pick out your negative attributes and tag you with it. 

Don’t be offended; God is only using them to sharpen you and make you a better person. Rather than complain, saying, “Can’t you see all my positive behaviours?” take the feedback and use it to improve yourself. 

Don’t mind the fact that they are not commenting on the things you thought were good about yourself; you just take whatever negative thing they say and turn it to positive so that you can be a better person.

Now, since people will most likely notice the negative traits of a person before the positives, if you want to be known for the latter, you have to do it so much that it will be impossible for them not to notice it. 

Improve on your strengths. I have always wanted to be known as the man constantly winning souls for God, so I do that at every opportunity and today, people know that if you give Pastor Adeboye the microphone just to greet the people, he is likely to tell them to give their lives to Christ. 

I love to praise God and I want people to know me for that, so I am not ashamed to carry my tambourine around with me everywhere I go.

Begin to repeatedly exhibit those good behaviours that you desire people to identify you with. Do it so much that if anybody mentions your name, that is the trait that will come to mind immediately.

The people mentioned in our Bible reading today were known for their faith in God. What are you known for?


Find out what people know you for and if it is not something you are proud of, change your ways.

HYMN 7 – I Am Thine O Lord

1 I am Thine, O Lord

I have heard Thy voice,

And it told Thy love to me;

But I long to rise in the arms of faith

And be closer drawn to Thee.


Draw me nearer, nearer, blessed Lord,

To the cross where Thou hast died;

Draw me nearer, nearer, nearer, blessed Lord,

To Thy precious, bleeding side.

2 Consecrate me now to Thy service, Lord

By the power of grace divine

Let my soul look up with a steadfast hope,

And my will be lost in Thine.

3 Oh, the pure delight of a single hour

That before Thy throne I spend,

When I kneel in prayer, and with Thee, my God

I commune as friend with friend!

4 There are depths of love that I cannot know

Till I cross the narrow sea;

There are heights of joy that I may not reach

Till I rest in peace with Thee.
