OPEN HEAVEN 10 APRIL 2021 TOPIC: The Word, Prophecy And Power

MEMORISE: Then Elisha said, Hear ye the word of the LORD; Thus saith the LORD, To morrow about this time shall a measure of fine flour be sold for a shekel, and two measures of barley for a shekel, in the gate of Samaria. – 2 Kings 7:1

READ: Ezekiel 37:1-10 (KJV)

1 The hand of the LORD was upon me, and carried me out in the spirit of the LORD, and set me down in the midst of the valley which was full of bones,

2 And caused me to pass by them round about: and, behold, there were very many in the open valley; and, lo, they were very dry.

3 And he said unto me, Son of man, can these bones live? And I answered, O Lord GOD, thou knowest.

4 Again he said unto me, Prophesy upon these bones, and say unto them, O ye dry bones, hear the word of the LORD.

5 Thus saith the Lord GOD unto these bones; Behold, I will cause breath to enter into you, and ye shall live:

6 And I will lay sinews upon you, and will bring up flesh upon you, and cover you with skin, and put breath in you, and ye shall live; and ye shall know that I am the LORD.

7 So I prophesied as I was commanded: and as I prophesied, there was a noise, and behold a shaking, and the bones came together, bone to his bone.

8 And when I beheld, lo, the sinews and the flesh came up upon them, and the skin covered them above: but there was no breath in them.

9 Then said he unto me, Prophesy unto the wind, prophesy, son of man, and say to the wind, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe upon these slain, that they may live.

10 So I prophesied as he commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they lived, and stood up upon their feet, an exceeding great army.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: 1 Corinthians 10-13

Open Heaven 10 April 2021 MESSAGE:

Many Scriptures establish the wonder-working power of prophetic word of God. The word of God can transform darkness to light (Genesis 1:1-3). We see this as Jesus restored the sight of Bartimaeus in Mark 10:46-52 by simply “speaking”. The spoken word of God can also turn every emptiness to fulness. In Genesis 1:20-22, all God had to do was speak, and the earth that was formerly void became full of creatures. In the name of Jesus every emptiness in your life shall be filled with the blessings of the Lord.

In addition to that, the spoken word of God can bring orderliness. Mark 4:35-41 records that there had been a storm rocking a boat that Jesus and His disciples were in. All Jesus did was to speak peace to the confusion and immediately, there was calm.

The spoken word of God can also raise the dead (John 11:39-44). The centurion in Matthew 8:5-13 knew this and that was why He asked Jesus to just send out His word. I want to encourage you today never to trivialize the words of genuine prophets of God. In 2 Kings 4:1-7, a prophet of God ‘spoke the word’ to a poor widow whose children were about to be sold into slavery. The moment he did, the power of God visited her and she experienced a great miracle. I decree that you will receive an earth-shaking miracle today, in the mighty name of Jesus.

Years ago, a man who had become bankrupt came to the church for prayers. When we were done, he said he would have loved to give me a gift, however he could not even afford to pay his transport fare back home. Thus, I gave him a little money and prophesied saying “This money will never finish.” He said “Amen” and left. Today, at least I know of two houses he built after that encounter.

I decree: Whatever resource that is in your possession today shall not finish in Jesus’ name. Only believe in the spoken word from God’s prophet, depart from iniquity and you too will share testimonies of the power in the word, in the mighty name of Jesus.

Open Heaven 10 April 2021 HYMN 23: Standing On The Promises Of Christ My King

1. Standing on the promises of Christ my King,
Through eternal ages let His praises ring,
Glory in the highest, I will shout and sing,
Standing on the promises of God.

Standing, standing,
Standing on the promises of God my Savior;
Standing, standing,
I’m standing on the promises of God.

2. Standing on the promises that cannot fail,
When the howling storms of doubt and fear assail,
By the living Word of God I shall prevail,
Standing on the promises of God.

3. Standing on the promises I now can see
Perfect, present cleansing in the blood for me;
Standing in the liberty where Christ makes free,
Standing on the promises of God.

4. Standing on the promises of Christ the Lord,
Bound to Him eternally by love’s strong cord,
Overcoming daily with the Spirit’s sword,
Standing on the promises of God.

5. Standing on the promises I cannot fall,
List’ning every moment to the Spirit’s call,
Resting in my Savior as my all in all,
Standing on the promises of God.

1. Admit that you are a sinner. "For all [humans] have sinned, and comes short of the glory of God....[and] the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord" (Romans 3:23)
2. Repent now. "Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out ...[for] if we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness " (Acts 3:19, 1 John 1:9)
3. Believe that God loves you and Jesus died for you. "God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet Sinners, Christ died for us" (Romans 5:8)
4. Invite Jesus into your life through prayer of faith. Jesus says, "Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me" (Revelation 3:20)
