Open Heaven 23 April MESSAGE

There are times we go in the wrong direction due to our human nature. For example, we had quite a good bargain when we purchased the first four acres of land that has now expanded to become Redemption City. As time went by, we kept buying more land, even though the price was increasing. After we had bought about a thousand acres, some people spoke to me and said, “Why are you buying lands in this bush? There are other things to spend money on,” and I listened to them. However, one night, God said to me, “Son, who called you? These people, or myself? Who promised you a city instead of a boy’s quarters?”.

I woke up and made up my mind to keep buying more land, but by then, what used to be 1,000 naira had gone up to 50,000 naira. Today, we have over 40,000 hectares, and we are still buying more. If you are moving in the opposite direction of God’s will for your life, God will step in today and bring you back to the right path, in Jesus’ name.

A fellow might have done something terrible in the past that made it impossible for him or her to reach some goals. An individual can commit a crime and end up with a life sentence. Even though that fellow’s case may seem hopeless, God can step in and turn things around.

GOD

In Genesis 49:1–7, Jacob, on his deathbed, cursed Levi because of some sins from his past, but God stepped in and gave Levi an opportunity to be restored. In Exodus 32:25–26, Moses returned from the mountain and found out that the children of Israel were dancing naked before an idol. He cried out, “Who is on the side of the Lord? Let him come to me.” Everyone belonging to the tribe of Levi crossed over to Moses and became his army. God looked down from heaven and said, “That curse on you is cancelled!” Levi missed it earlier, but he got on God’s side and was restored.

God can step in to give you hope again. I, however, have some questions for you: are you on the Lord’s side? Do you do His will? Are you committed to serving him alone? If you answered ‘yes’ to these questions, God will step in and bring you back to the path of fulfilling your destiny, in Jesus’ name.

Father, I am on your side. Please step into my situation and let me fulfill your plans for my life.

Open Heaven 23 April 2024 HYMN 14: O What A Wonderfully, Wonderfully Day

1 Oh, what a wonderful day!
Day I Will Never Forget
After I’d Wandered in Darkness Away
Jesus, my Savior, I met
Oh, 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.

Chorus
Heaven came down.
And glory filled my soul.
When at the Cross
The Savior made me whole.
My sins were washed away.
And My Night Was Turned To Day
Heaven came down.
And glory filled my soul.

2: Born of the Spirit With Life From Above
Into God’s Familiar Divine
Justified Fully Through Calvary’s Love
Oh, What A Standing Is Mine?
And the transaction was so quickly made.
When, as a Sinner, I Came
Took the Offer of Grace
He did proffer He saved me.
Oh, praise his Dear Name

Now I’ve Got 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 I was at the cross, I believed
Riches Eternal and Blessings Supernal
From His Precious Hand, I Received

 

Lord Jesus, come into my life. I accept you as my Lord and personal savior. I believe in my heart that you died and rose from the dead to save me. Thank you, Lord, for saving me, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
