Open Heavens 27 March 2017: Monday daily devotional by Pastor E. A. Adeboye – Divine Acceptance

Topic: Divine Acceptance [Monday 27, March 2017]

Memorise: And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear. – Isaiah 65:24

Read: Acts 10:30-44 (KJV)

30 And Cornelius said, Four days ago I was fasting until this hour; and at the ninth hour I prayed in my house, and, behold, a man stood before me in bright clothing,

31 And said, Cornelius, thy prayer is heard, and thine alms are had in remembrance in the sight of God.

32 Send therefore to Joppa, and call hither Simon, whose surname is Peter; he is lodged in the house of one Simon a tanner by the sea side: who, when he cometh, shall speak unto thee.

33 Immediately therefore I sent to thee; and thou hast well done that thou art come. Now therefore are we all here present before God, to hear all things that are commanded thee of God.

34 Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons:

35 But in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with him.

36 The word which God sent unto the children of Israel, preaching peace by Jesus Christ: (he is Lord of all:)

37 That word, I say, ye know, which was published throughout all Judaea, and began from Galilee, after the baptism which John preached;

38 How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.

39 And we are witnesses of all things which he did both in the land of the Jews, and in Jerusalem; whom they slew and hanged on a tree:

40 Him God raised up the third day, and shewed him openly;

41 Not to all the people, but unto witnesses chosen before of God, even to us, who did eat and drink with him after he rose from the dead.

42 And he commanded us to preach unto the people, and to testify that it is he which was ordained of God to be the Judge of quick and dead.

43 To him give all the prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins.

44 While Peter yet spake these words, the Holy Ghost fell on all them which heard the word.

Bible in One Year: Exodus 31-32, Jeremiah 2:33-3:10

IDENTIFYING THE ENEMY (8) – ISAIAH 14:12-15 Rev&Rev(Mrs) Olusola Areogun 24 March, 2017

We will conclude our series today on identifying the enemy.

7.      An enemy is anyone who secretly wants the same thing that you want or have.

Someone who envies you and secretly wants the same thing that you want or you have is an enemy. That is actually a thief. Some years ago, God gave me the definition of a friend. The Lord showed me that a friend is not someone that shares your sorrow with you because your enemy can also share your moments of sorrow.

DCLM Daily Manna March 24, 2017 by Pastor Kumuyi – Were They Genuine?


Topic: Were They Genuine? [Friday March 24, 2017]

Text: Matthew 16:1-12

Key Verse: “A wicked and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given unto it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas. And he left them, and departed” (Matthew 16:4).

The Pharisees and the Sadducees put away their differences in order to mount up a formidable opposition against Christ whose teaching overthrew their errors and heresies. Their intention in asking Jesus to give them “a sign from heaven” was inimical. Miracles surrounded the birth of Jesus; signs and wonders He had already shown would have been sufficient for sincere seekers to agree that God was with Him.

Open Heavens 24 March 2017: Friday daily devotional by Pastor E. A. Adeboye – Reopening Closed Cases

Topic: Reopening Closed Cases [Friday 24, March 2017]

Memorise: He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision. – Psalm 2:4

Read: Daniel 6:10-17 (KJV)

10 Now when Daniel knew that the writing was signed, he went into his house; and his windows being open in his chamber toward Jerusalem, he kneeled upon his knees three times a day, and prayed, and gave thanks before his God, as he did aforetime.

11 Then these men assembled, and found Daniel praying and making supplication before his God.

IDENTIFYING THE ENEMY (7) – 2 SAMUEL 15:31-35, 17:1-7 -Rev&Rev(Mrs) Olusola Areogun

Today, we will continue the subject we have been studying for some days, identifying the enemy.

6.  An enemy is anyone who uses your weaknesses against you

Ahitophel did this to David in 2 Samuel chapter 17. He knew David’s weakness and used it to counsel Absalom against him. Once you allow the wrong person into your circle of intimacy, you become more vulnerable than you prepared for. Whenever this happens to you on any scale, God is showing you the kind of people that cannot go into the future with you.

IDENTIFYING THE ENEMY (6) – PSALM 41:1-9, PROVERBS 18:22-24 – Rev&Rev(Mrs) Olusola Areogun

We will continue our series today on identifying the enemy.

5.      An enemy is anyone who betrays your secrets and confidence.

Judas was this kind of enemy to Jesus. Jesus said, “Have I not chosen twelve of you? And one of you is a devil.” Jesus knew he would betray Him and therefore called him a devil. Take note of this important truth as you go on in life: Intimacy is not a gift; it should be the reward for loyalty. Don’t bring people into your circle of intimacy who have not demonstrated their unreserved loyalty to you.
