RCCG Open Heavens 25 February 2018 Daily Devotional by Pastor E.A. Adeboye

Topic: Not For Kings!

Memorise: And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit; Ephesians 5:18

Read: Proverbs 23:29-35 (KJV)

23:29 Who hath woe? who hath sorrow? who hath contentions? who hath babbling? who hath wounds without cause? who hath redness of eyes?
23:30 They that tarry long at the wine; they that go to seek mixed wine.
23:31 Look not thou upon the wine when it is red, when it giveth his colour in the cup, when it moveth itself aright.
23:32 At the last it biteth like a serpent, and stingeth like an adder.
23:33 Thine eyes shall behold strange women, and thine heart shall utter perverse things.
23:34 Yea, thou shalt be as he that lieth down in the midst of the sea, or as he that lieth upon the top of a mast.
23:35 They have stricken me, shalt thou say, and I was not sick; they have beaten me, and I felt it not: when shall I awake? I will seek it yet again.

Bible in one year: Leviticus 26, 1st Corinthians 11:17-12:11, Hymnal: Sing hymn 12

Message:
Our imagination cannot begin to grasp the extent of the many benefits which our redemption through the Blood of Jesus Christ grants to us. The price that was paid on the cross of Calvary forever changed our state, our status and our future. One of the changes it made to our status is revealed to us in Revelation 1:5b-6:

“Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood, And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.”

RCCG Open Heavens 25 February 2018 Daily Devotional – Not For Kings!

It is clear from this scripture that those who have been redeemed by the precious Blood of the Lamb are kings. To leave no doubt in our minds, our status of royalty is further declared to us in 1st Peter 2:9. Having been taken from the dunghill of sin and made kings unto God, the least we can do is to comport ourselves in a manner that aligns with our new status. In order for us to continually live in the reality of our royal status, the Holy Spirit has gone the extra mile to clearly define what we should and should not do as kings unto God. One of those things we should not do is clearly stated in Proverbs 31:4 as follows:

RCCG Open Heavens 25 February 2018: [Sunday] Daily Devotional by Pastor E. A. Adeboye – Not For Kings!

“It is not for kings, O Lemuel, it is not for kings to drink wine; nor for princes strong drink:”

I believe this is clear enough. For those who want to live their lives as kings unto God in this world and reign as kings with Jesus Christ in the world to come, total abstinence from alcohol is not an option.

Today’s Bible text further explains to us the reason why alcohol is not for kings. It may seem harmless at the time it is being gulped down the throat, but when it arrives in your body, which is the temple of the Holy Spirit, what does it do? It stirs up things in you that are contrary to the nature of God that you share. Proverbs 23:33 mentions some of such things:

OPEN HEAVENS 25 FEBRUARY 2018

“Thine eyes shall behold strange women, and thine heart shall utter perverse things.”

Just take a look at Noah to understand what alcohol can do to a great man (Genesis 9:19-25). It eventually brought an everlasting curse upon one of his beloved children. I pray for you that your appetite will not put you in trouble in Jesus’ Name. Please drop your contentious arguments about drinking alcohol today. Count it a worthy sacrifice you need to make to follow after the Master. Seek to continually be filled with the Holy Spirit and the appetite for wine will fade into oblivion (Ephesians 5:18)

Action Point: Open Heavens 25 February 2018
Always be cautions of the content of any drink handed over to you for consumption and ensure that it is non-alcoholic before you drink it.

Seeds of Destiny 27th September 2018 – The Holy Spirit: The Sponsor of Righteousness

SOD THURSDAY 27TH SEPTEMBER, 2018

SCRIPTURE: Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. Mathew 5:14-16

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: The Holy Ghost is the secret of upright living.

Character is of capital value in life and destiny. One’s character determines the degree of influence one can command in one’s generation.

A Christian is meant to be a standard bearer, a road pointer, or a pace-setter for his or her generation. We were designed by God to show the rest of the world how to live. We are meant to colonize the world in excellence by our standards. The reason why our world is degenerating today is because most Christians do not operate by set Divine standards. Seeds of Destiny 27th September 2018

Now, it is very important to know that the Holy Ghost is the secret of upright living. The question is, how does the Holy Spirit help us to maintain an upright character in a degenerating world?

The Holy Ghost is the sponsor of righteousness (Romans 14:17). The Holy Ghost gives you peace, and supplies you joy and righteousness. Seeds of Destiny 27th September 2018

So, anyone who knows how to fellowship with the Holy Spirit by praying in tongues abundantly is a person whose character will be continuously moulded, enhanced and refined.
The Holy Spirit opens our eyes to insights from Scripture that can kill any unholy nature in us.

The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of liberty and transformation (2 Corinthians 3:17). That is, where the Spirit of the Lord is, you are not permitted to be bound by sin. Where the Spirit of the Lord is, the bondage of sin is broken.

By the power of the Holy Ghost, I decree that the siege of every negative habit over your life is broken in Jesus’ Name.

Remember this: The Holy Ghost is the secret of upright living.

ASSIGNMENTS Seeds of Destiny 27th September 2018:
1. Pray in the Holy Ghost abundantly and consistently.
2. Avoid anything that will defile your conscience.

PRAYER: O LORD, fill me with the Power of the Holy Spirit. Help me to maintain a positive character and make me a standard bearer in my generation, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

Seeds of Destiny 26th September 2018 - The Power that enforces change

Seeds of Destiny 26th September 2018 – The Power that enforces change by Pastor Paul Enenche

SOD WEDNESDAY 26TH SEPTEMBER, 2018

SCRIPTURE: And Jabez called on the God of Israel, saying, Oh that thou wouldest bless me indeed, and enlarge my coast, and that thine hand might be with me, and that thou wouldest keep me from evil, that it may not grieve me! And God granted him that which he requested. 1 Chronicles 4:10

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: What you do not resist will persist.

It has been established that change, like every other phenomenon, is brought about by force. There is a force behind every change; nothing changes on its own. Every change experienced in life is powered by a force. Situations change when people decide to enforce a change. Seeds of Destiny 26th September 2018 – The Power that enforces change

That is why Jabez, from our anchor Scripture, did not just sit down and wait for things to change in his life. His life and situation could not have changed if he did nothing about them.
I once heard God’s servant, Bishop David Oyedepo say, ‘What you don’t want, you don’t watch.’ I can imagine Jabez say, ‘I don’t want this miserable life and I will not continue to watch it. I want the situations of my life to change so I have to go to God and place a demand for a drastic change.’

Seeds of Destiny 26th September 2018 – The Power that enforces change

Please note this: what you do not resist will persist; whatever you do not resist will remain.

What Jabez did was what Jacob also decided to do. When Jacob saw the situation of his life, he decided to pray about it. He also determined to fight it out (Genesis 32:24). Seeds of Destiny 26th September 2018

Beloved, you need a fighter spirit to change your destiny. Destiny changes when responsibility for change is accepted. When you make up your mind for change to occur, when you make up your mind to pray about it, then the change must happen.

Remember this: What you do not resist will persist.

ASSIGNMENT(S):
1. Accept the responsibility of effecting changes in the relevant areas of your life.
2. Take your burdens to the Lord in prayer.
3. Never quit the fight for your fulfilment in life and destiny.

FOR FURTHER UNDERSTANDING, GET THIS MESSAGE: THE PRAYER OF JABEZ 1

PRAYER: Lord, I cast my cares upon You. I refuse to be established in the status quo. Cause things to turn around in my favour, Lord in Jesus’ Name.

QUOTE: The reason why it bothers you is because you have been packaged to handle it! Culled from GO IN THIS THY MIGHT by Dr Paul Enenche.

DAILY READING: Isaiah 48:12 to 50:11, Ephesians 4:17 to 32, Psalm 69:1 to 18, Proverbs 24:5 to 6.
