READY TO GO? Tuesday 1 November

Open Heavens Devotional by Pastor E.A. Adeboye
MEMORIZE: “Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come” (Matt. 24:42).
READ: Matthew 24:36-42
“Better is the end of a thing than the beginning thereof: and the patient in spirit is better than the proud in spirit” (Eccl. 7:8).
This scripture is true of believers: Why? They started as sinners and ended as saints. And Isaiah 3:10 says it shall be well with the righteous. Are you a believer in Christ living daily before God in righteousness? Fear Not! It shall be well with you. It does not matter how seemingly bad things may appear today, your end shall be great. On the other hand, this scripture does not hold true for unbelievers because they started as innocent babies but ending as hardened sinners. For sinners, things shall continue to get worse. Believers will be spared the trouble of going through the Great Tribulation as they will be caught up to meet the Saviour in the air.
Today’s reading says it can be compared to th…



KEEPING DEATH AT BAY Saturday 29 October

Open Heavens Devotional by Pastor E.A. Adeboye
MEMORIZE: “I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death” (Rev. 1:18).
READ: Isaiah 38:1-5
The Creator of death is greater than death, for he created it. As a result, the one to be feared is the Creator and not death itself. Many people have strayed from the narrow path because of the fear of death. For instance, in the time of sickness, when medication and prayers do not bring healing, the fear of death makes some people to yield to satanic alternatives. Yet, in spite of the sacrifices and covenants they enter into with the devil, they still die, ending up in the hands of the enemy. When this happens, they spend their eternity in hell. Now, is it not better to die in that sickness with your faith intact? If you are sick and do not get healed, know that any offer of healing from elsewhere is not worth it. There is no sickness God cannot heal. So, if He says you should co…

GOD’S SPOKESPERSON Friday 28 October

Open Heavens Devotional by Pastor E.A. Adeboye
MEMORIZE: “But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God” (1 Cor.2:10).
READ: 1 Corinthians 2:9-13
John 1:1 says Jesus existed before the beginning, and was with God and was God Himself. What does the phrase “And the Word was with God” mean? It means that because Jesus and the Father have been together even before the beginning of the creation, they have the same knowledge. Hence, in Matthew 11:27, Jesus says, “All things are delivered unto me of my Father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the son will reveal him”. Whatever God knows, Jesus also knows. If you desire to access what God knows, draw nearer to Jesus Christ. You can be close to Jesus Christ through His Word. When there is closeness between you and the Lord, he will be able to confide in you and share so many divine secrets with you…
