Topic: UNITED IN REBELLION? (Open heavens 2019 Thursday 14 February 2019)
Memorize: Proverbs 11:21 King James Version (KJV)
21 Though hand join in hand, the wicked shall not be unpunished: but the seed of the righteous shall be delivered.
Read: Genesis 11:1-6 King James Version (KJV) Open heavens 2019 Daily Devotional by Pastor E A Adeboye
1 And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech.
2 And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar; and they dwelt there.
3 And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them thoroughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for morter.
4 And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.
5 And the Lord came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded.
6 And the Lord said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.

Open heavens 2019 Thursday 14 February 2019 MESSAGE:
While it is good to walk in unity with others through any venture in life, any form of unity that runs contrary to the perfect will of God is counterproductive. Because of this truth, whenever there is a call to unite over anything, you must first find out what type of cause it is and what kind of unity is being called for. Uniting with people blindly can cause you untold agony.
This is what happened to King Jehoshaphat who formed an unholy alliance with the idolatrous King Ahab (1 Kings 22:1-53 ). It was only the mercy of God that spared Jehoshaphat from becoming a victim of the untimely death that was reserved for another man. When people unite to actualize anything that is contrary to the will of God, it is a rebellious alliance. The unfortunate thing about rebellious alliances of the ungodly is that they will always end in frustration and shame, just as it happened at the Tower of Babel. Gods mandate to mankind was to replenish the whole earth and subdue it (Genesis 1: 28, Isaiah 45:18 ), but they chose at that point to build a city and a tower with a motive that was contrary to Gods mandate for them. Hear what they said to themselves in Genesis 11:4
“”And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.””
They united to rebel against the divine purpose and God had to intervene so that His original plan could be achieved.
This is why their unitary language had to be confounded. The example of the Tower of Babel teaches us a good number of lessons, first of which is that whenever people gather to rebel against God and godliness, God always
knows about it. I pray that the Almighty God will always reveal the evil plans of your enemies to you in Jesus Name.
Secondly, God does not only expose evil conspiracies, He also acts against them. I decree that those who are united
against the purpose of God for your life shall be confounded and their purpose shall be defeated in Jesus Name. One
example of an evil conspiracy is the alliance of Ahithophel and Absalom against David (2 Samuel 15:12 ). David prayed that God should overturn Ahithophels evil counsel, and He did (2 Samuel 15: 31; 2 Samuel 17:23 ). The third lesson for us is that when God arises to foil the plans of those who diabolically unite against Him and His people, the enemies are left confused and in disarray.
Beloved, are you uniting in rebellion with others? Please stop it. Never align yourself with rebels. Let these words of Proverbs 1:10 guide you in this regard:
“”My son, if sinners entice thee, consent thou not.””
Examine the company you keep. If their activities are rebellious, part ways with them and keep company with the people of God.
Hymnal: Open heavens 2019 Thursday 14 February 2019
Sing Hymn 3: Trust and Obey
1 When we walk with the Lord
in the light of his word,
what a glory he sheds on our way!
While we do his good will,
he abides with us still,
and with all who will trust and obey.
Trust and obey,
for there’s no other way
to be happy in Jesus,
but to trust and obey.
2 Not a shadow can rise,
not a cloud in the skies,
But His smile quickly drives it away;
Not a doubt or a fear,
not a sigh or a tear,
Can abide while we trust and obey.
3 Not a burden we bear,
not a sorrow we share,
but our toil he doth richly repay;
not a grief or a loss,
not a frown or a cross,
but is best if we trust and obey.
4 But we never can prove
the delights of his love
until all on the altar we lay;
for the favour he shows,
for the joy he bestows,
are for them who will trust and obey.
5 Then in fellowship sweet
we will sit at his feet,
or we’ll walk by his side in the way;
what he says we will do,
where he sends we will go;
never fear, only trust and obey.
Open heavens 2019 Thursday 14 February 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).
