Open Heaven, RCCG Daily Devotional with Prayer Points, Sunday, June 7, 2020: Gates of adversity must be lifted


Topic of today, Sunday June 7, 2020: Gates of adversity must be lifted with prayer points for today

 By Pastor E. A. Adeboye

Memorise: And suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken: and immediately all the doors were opened, and every one’s bands were loosed. – Acts 16:26

Read: Psalm 24:7-10 (KJV)

7 Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.

8 Who is this King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle.

9 Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift them up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.

10 Who is this King of glory? The LORD of hosts, he is the King of glory.

Bible in One Year: Proverbs 16-18

Open Heaven 7 June 2020 Sunday MESSAGE:

Gates of adversity are seemingly insurmountable obstacles – be it an individual, kingdom or situation, obstructing the progress of a person or group of people.

Biblical examples of gates of adversity include Pharaoh with the Egyptian army, the wall of Jericho and Goliath the Philistine. Situations representative of gate of adversity include mountains, poverty, sickness, slavery, captivity, siege, and barrenness. Those who are held bound by such gates would therefore find it extremely difficult to succeed in life. These conditions have consistently proven insurmountable by human effort, but Mark 10:27 says “…With men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible.”

God’s purpose for mankind is seen in Genesis 1:28 where God commanded us to “…be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion…” Manifestations of contrary circumstances in life are abnormalities usually brought about by sin and hidden works of the devil.

“Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.” – Psalm 24:7

My Daddy – the creator of heaven and earth, the Almighty, can destroy every gate of adversity. Zechariah 4:7 says, “Who art thou, O great mountain? before Zerubbabel thou shalt become a plain…” Isaiah 10:27 also says “…and the yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing.”

Are you troubled by any gate of adversity? If you haven’t accepted Jesus as your Lord and Saviour, do so now. If you are born again, then commit to serving God for the rest of your life and He will fight for you. I command every gate of adversity in your life to be destroyed now in the mighty name of Jesus.

Open Heaven 7 June 2020 Sunday Prayer Point:

Father, please uproot every gate of adversity in my life and family today, in the mighty name of Jesus.

Open Heaven 7 June 2020 Sunday Hymn 23: Onward, Christian Soldiers

    Onward, Christian soldiers, marching as to war,

    With the cross of Jesus going on before.

    Christ, the royal Master, leads against the foe;

    Forward into battle see His banners go!


Onward, Christian soldiers, marching as to war,

With the cross of Jesus going on before.

    At the sign of triumph Satan’s host doth flee;

    On then, Christian soldiers, on to victory!

    Hell’s foundations quiver at the shout of praise;

    Brothers, lift your voices, loud your anthems raise.

    Like a mighty army moves the church of God;

    Brothers, we are treading where the saints have trod.

    We are not divided, all one body we,

    One in hope and doctrine, one in charity.

    Crowns and thrones may perish, kingdoms rise and wane,

    But the church of Jesus constant will remain.

    Gates of hell can never ’gainst that church prevail;

    We have Christ’s own promise, and that cannot fail.

    Onward then, ye people, join our happy throng,

    Blend with ours your voices in the triumph song.

    Glory, laud, and honor unto Christ the King,

    This through countless ages men and angels sing.

Special note:

Beloved Reader, if you are yet to give your life to Christ Jesus, it would be nice you do so before you continue in this reading. You must be born again to enjoy continuous victory in life. And because the Lord Jesus in John 3:3 says, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless a person is born again, ye cannot see the kingdom of God.”

Remember that there is nothing eternal security, that is, nothing like once you are born again, you remain born again forever. So, you need to examine yourself every time and confess your sin every time. And unless you are again, God’s ever abiding presence will never be with you. You must be born again to enjoy continuous victory in all areas of life. Please say the displayed prayer below in faith:

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. I confess all my sin, have mercy on me, forgive me all sin, give grace to go and sin no more. Thank You Lord for saving me, in Jesus name Amen.
