Open heavens 2019 Friday 25 January 2019 Daily Devotional by Pastor E A Adeboye – NOT FOR SALE!

Topic: NOT FOR SALE! (Open heavens 2019 Friday 25 January 2019)

Memorise: Matthew 10:8 King James Version (KJV)

Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.

Read: Daniel 5:10-17 King James Version (KJV) Open heavens 2019 Daily Devotional by Pastor E A Adeboye

10 Now the queen by reason of the words of the king and his lords came into the banquet house: and the queen spake and said, O king, live for ever: let not thy thoughts trouble thee, nor let thy countenance be changed:
11 There is a man in thy kingdom, in whom is the spirit of the holy gods; and in the days of thy father light and understanding and wisdom, like the wisdom of the gods, was found in him; whom the king Nebuchadnezzar thy father, the king, I say, thy father, made master of the magicians, astrologers, Chaldeans, and soothsayers;
12 Forasmuch as an excellent spirit, and knowledge, and understanding, interpreting of dreams, and shewing of hard sentences, and dissolving of doubts, were found in the same Daniel, whom the king named Belteshazzar: now let Daniel be called, and he will shew the interpretation.
13 Then was Daniel brought in before the king. And the king spake and said unto Daniel, Art thou that Daniel, which art of the children of the captivity of Judah, whom the king my father brought out of Jewry?
14 I have even heard of thee, that the spirit of the gods is in thee, and that light and understanding and excellent wisdom is found in thee.
15 And now the wise men, the astrologers, have been brought in before me, that they should read this writing, and make known unto me the interpretation thereof: but they could not shew the interpretation of the thing:
16 And I have heard of thee, that thou canst make interpretations, and dissolve doubts: now if thou canst read the writing, and make known to me the interpretation thereof, thou shalt be clothed with scarlet, and have a chain of gold about thy neck, and shalt be the third ruler in the kingdom.
17 Then Daniel answered and said before the king, Let thy gifts be to thyself, and give thy rewards to another; yet I will read the writing unto the king, and make known to him the interpretation.

Open heavens 2019 Friday 25 January 2019 MESSAGE:

In His omniscience, our God has chosen not to endow His spiritual gifts on many of His children and ministers, even though they earnestly desire and seek these with fasting, prayer and long periods of waiting upon Him. His refusal is because He knows that they will make merchandise of His gifts, and He does not want them to face the damnation that will follow. The Holy Spirit warns us concerning this in 2 Peter 2:3

“And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.”

Our Lord Jesus Christ in today’s memory verse laid bare His principle for operating in spiritual gifts, saying, Freely ye have received, freely give. Contrary to this principle, some ministers of God are merchandising the gospel in order to meet their personal needs. Beloved, if you belong to this category of people, I advise that you repent, because it is better not to preach than to preach for money.

Whoever is in contention with this truth should read the story of Gehazi over and over again in 2 Kings 5: 16-27.

Daniel was an upright prophet of God who chose not to make gain from his prophetic office. Even though he was offered great riches and a political appointment if he could read the writing on the wall and tell its interpretation, he declined these gifts. In Daniel 5:17 he said:

“Let thy gifts be to thyself, and give thy rewards to another; yet I will read the writing unto the king, and make known to him the interpretation.”

In other words, Daniel was saying My prophetic gift is not for sale.

Faced with a similar circumstance, Peter said to Simon the sorcerer in Acts 8:20
“Thy money perish with thee, because thou hast thought that the gift of God may be purchased with money.”

This is the character that our Lord wants to see in those who minister before Him and among His people. The mentality of merchandising the gifts of God must be discouraged in the Church of God today. May God help His ministers to keep to the ethics of their calling in Jesus Name.

PRAYER POINT:
Father, please deliver the ministers of Your gospel all over the world from greed that may cause them to merchandise Your spiritual gifts

Hymnal: Open heavens 2019 Friday 25 January 2019

Sing Hymn 5: Let Others See Jesus in You

1 While passing thro’ this world of sin,
And others your life shall view,
Be clean and pure without,
within, Let others see Jesus in you.

Chorus:
Let others see Jesus in you,
Let others see Jesus in you;
Keep telling the story, be faithful and true,
Let others see Jesus in you

2 Your life’s a book before their eyes,
They’re reading it thro’ and thro’,
Say, does it point them to the skies,
Do others see Jesus in you?

Chorus:
Let others see Jesus in you,
Let others see Jesus in you;
Keep telling the story, be faithful and true,
Let others see Jesus in you

3 What joy ’twill be at set of sun,
In mansions beyond the blue,
To find some souls that you have won;
Let others see Jesus in you.

Chorus:
Let others see Jesus in you,
Let others see Jesus in you;
Keep telling the story, be faithful and true,
Let others see Jesus in you

4 Then live for Christ both day and night,
Be faithful, be brave, and true,
And lead the lost to life and light;
Let others see Jesus in you.

Chorus:
Let others see Jesus in you,
Let others see Jesus in you;
Keep telling the story, be faithful and true,
Let others see Jesus in you

Open heavens 2019 Friday 25 January 2019 Daily Devotional guide was written by Pastor E.A. Adeboye, the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, one of the largest evangelical church in the world and also the President of Christ the Redeemer’s Ministries. The life of Enoch Adejare Adeboye is a fulfilment of the scriptures in Zechariah 4: 10 which declare, “despise not the days of small beginnings”. Born in 1942 into a humble family in the village of Ifewara, Osun State located in the South-western part of Nigeria Enoch Adeboye often humorously states that his family was so poor that even the poor people called them poor. As a matter of fact, he unashamedly tells his congregation that he never owned shoes until he was eighteen years of age. What he possessed though were physical intangibles such as focus, consistency, diligence, ambition, a brilliant mind and a determination to succeed in life.

In 1956 Enoch Adeboye was admitted into Ilesha Grammar School, Ilesha, Osun State, Western Nigeria and as a youth he discovered a passion for books, and an aptitude for science and in particular the field of Mathematics. This led to an academic journey in the field of Mathematics against incredible odds including but not limited to finances, the Nigerian Civil War and academic politics. By the time he was done, Enoch Adeboye had obtained not only a Bachelors (BSc.) degree in Mathematics from the University of Nigeria, Nnsukka, Nigeria in 1967, but also a Masters (MSc.) Degree in Hydrodynamics and a Doctorate Degree (PhD) in Applied Mathematics, both from the University of Lagos, Lagos, Nigeria in 1969 and 1975 respectively.

One of the motivations for these academic achievements was Enoch Adeboye’s passionate desire to become the youngest Vice-Chancellor (University President) of any one of the frontline Universities in Nigeria. It did seem that his academic ambition would be realized as his academic career flourished. However, this was not to be as a greater career awaited him in the service of the Lord. In 1967 Enoch Adeboye got married to his beloved wife Foluke Adenike Adeboye (nee Adeyokunnu). Open heavens 2019 Friday 25 January 2019 Daily Devotional by Pastor E A Adeboye – NOT FOR SALE!
