Open Heaven 25 July 2022 Monday Daily Devotional By Pastor E. A. Adeboye – He Will Return!
Open Heaven 25 July 2022 TOPIC: He Will Return!
MEMORISE: “Blessed are those servants, whom the lord when he cometh shall find watching: verily I say unto you, that he shall gird himself, and make them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them.” – Luke 12:37 (KJV)
READ: Romans 12:11-14 (KJV)
11 Not slothful in business; fervent in spirit; serving the Lord;
12 Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer;
13 Distributing to the necessity of saints; given to hospitality.
14 Bless them which persecute you: bless, and curse not.
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Proverbs 1-2
Open Heaven 25 July 2022 MESSAGE:
Many years ago, when I just became born again and began to seriously serve the Lord, the message of the second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ was preached often. It was so rampant that we had to beg University students to continue their education; after all, Jesus said “Occupy till I come” (Luke 19:13). The Yoruba Christians had a common greeting amongst themselves that says “Eku afojusona ipada Jesu Christi” meaning “Well done as you look forward to the return of Jesus Christ.” Today, however, there are very few messages that remind people of the Lord’s return. People pleasing sermons have taken over the pulpit. You would hardly see many Christians living in expectation of the Lord’s return.

A man who is preparing for the Lord’s return will never maltreat his wife. A wife who knows the Lord will return suddenly will respect her husband. An employee who is expecting the Lord’s return will not cheat his or her employer. A preacher who is preparing for the Lord’s return will not withhold the truth from the people of God in his congregation. Every child of God who is truly serious about his walk with the Lord will avoid anything and everything that could hold him or her back from going with the Lord. Whether we like it or not, the Lord will return. If you are a minister of God, you have the responsibility to keep warning God’s sheep, whom He has placed in your care, to keep watching for the return of the Lord. If you, as a minister, are not preparing, it will be difficult for your flock to prepare.
There has never been a time when the message of the Lord’s return is more needful. The world is in serious chaos, yet, millions of God’s children are sleeping. In any case, Jesus Christ already spoke about what is happening in the world today; that many will sleep (Matthew 13:25). It is my prayer that you will not sleep the sleep of death in Jesus’ name.
On the last day, only the faithful of God will be raptured. No matter how deep the world sleeps, Jesus Christ will still return. Therefore, you had better stop playing around and begin to live holy. I have done my duty by telling you the truth, God will not hold me responsible for not telling you. Where you will end up is now left to you.
Open Heaven 25 July 2022 PRAYER POINT:
Heavenly Father, please help me not to sleep the sleep of death. Keep me awake to watch and pray until You return.
Open Heaven 25 July 2022 HYMN 6: Ho! My Comrades, See The Signal
1 Ho! my comrades! see the signal,
Waving in the sky!
Reinforcements now appearing,
Victory in nigh!
“Hold the fort, for I am coming,”
Jesus signals still,
Wave the answer back to heaven,
“By Thy grace we will.”
2 See the mighty host advancing,
Satan leading on;
Mighty men around us falling,
Courage almost gone.
3 See the glorious banner waving,
Hear the trumpet blow;
In our Leader’s Name we triumph
Over every foe.
4 Fierce and long the battle rages,
But our help is near;
Onward comes our great commander,
Cheer, my comrades, cheer!
