OPEN HEAVEN 3 NOVEMBER 2021 BIBLE READING PSALMS 91:1-8

1. He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

2. I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.

3. Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.

4. He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.

5. Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;

6. Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.

7. A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.

8. Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.

 

OPEN HEAVEN 3 NOVEMBER 2021 MESSAGE

The Psalmist says in Psalm 125:1: “They that trust in the Lord shall be as mount Zion, which cannot be removed, but abideth forever.”

One point to be quickly noted about this Scripture is that it is only for those who put their trust in the Lord, not those who have alternatives to the Almighty God.

Those who put their trust in God are immovable. This was Davids experience.In the Bible text of today we see another dimension of divine protection over Gods people.


This is food for thought for those who are still in doubt of Gods ability to protect to the very end. Some people are even afraid of prosperity because they feel they would be prone to enemy attacks when they prosper.

They refuse to believe Davids assurance in Psalms 23:5 which says: “Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies…my cup runneth over.”

Not only did God prepare a sumptuous table for David, He filled his cup to the point of overflow just to show that He had more than enough to give to His beloved. As if that were not enough, it was done in the presence of Davids enemies and they could do nothing against it.

The Almighty God who prospers us is also the One who protects and He has assured us that He will keep us at all times (Psalms 91:3,5).

Davids experiences – first with the lion, then the bear (1 Samuel 17:34-37) and later with Goliath (1 Samuel 17:49-51) are testimonies that should make any doubter believe that our God is Jehovah Nissi. This means He is the Banner that covers and goes ahead of us to guarantee victory in every battle we face (Exodus 17:15).

Beloved, I am assuring you that if you put your trust in the Lord, your protection will be guaranteed, because our God never fails. He watches over His elect so that His name may not be blasphemed.

The Lord fights on behalf of His elect and always ensures they are victorious over evil. Hence, your victory over evil is guaranteed, so long as you remain on Gods side and stay away from sin.

 
OPEN HEAVEN 3 NOVEMBER 2021 KEY POINT

Ensure that you serve only the Almighty God – the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, so your protection can be guaranteed in the blood of the Lamb.

SPECIAL NOTE!

Beloved Reader, the best way to enjoy best of God is to make Jesus Christ your personal Lord & Saviour.  And remember! John 3:3 says, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless ye are born again, ye cannot see the kingdom of God.”

If you are ready to give your life to Christ Jesus, please pray the displayed prayer below in faith:

Lord Jesus, I am a sinner. I confess all my sin, have mercy on me, forgive me all my sin. Lord Jesus come into my life. I accept You as my Lord and Personal Saviour. I believe in my heart You died and rose from the dead to save me. Thank You Lord for saving me, in Jesus name Amen.

Beware! This Scripture: “And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold,” Matt 24:12, is being fulfilled in our time. Our prayer is: any power or any problem that will kill our love for God, blood of Jesus will destroy and flush them away from us, in Jesus name.

Good Day, we cherish your presence here. Thank you for your comments, observations, feedbacks and time spent on this platform.

Beloved! We are in perilous time when kidnappings, banditry and other vices have become daily occurrences. But the Lord is saying, fear not, be bold & be courageous!

In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, you shall not be a victim to whatever calamity flying around by day and by night, in the name of Jesus, Amen!
Shalom!
