OPEN HEAVEN 15 SEPTEMBER 2020 MEMORIZE: For the LORD thy God walketh in the midst of thy camp, to deliver thee, and to give up thine enemies before thee; therefore shall thy camp be holy: that he see no unclean thing in thee, and turn away from thee. Deuteronomy 23:14
Several years ago, I promised to visit one of my Pastors. I had told him I would stay only a few minutes, pray and leave.
Since he wanted me to stay a bit longer, he devised a means.
He got a very good collection of hymns and started playing just before I arrived. I ended up staying for hours.
Do you know God will cut His visit to some homes short if the environment is not conducive?
“…therefore shall thy camp be holy: that he see no unclean thing in thee, and turn away from thee.” – Deuteronomy 23:14
My Father-in-the-Lord – Pa Josiah Akindayomi, once preached a message about this.
He said we must keep our houses clean if we want God there.
God detests dirt so much that if He finds any unclean thing in a camp, He leaves (Deuteronomy 23:14).
He asked: When last did you clean under your bed? If it is full of dust and dirt, God cannot stay.
Those who work with me know that, if you claimed to have cleaned a room and I find dust at the top of the door, you may have to repeat the cleaning because I want anywhere I am to be conducive for God to stay.
Pa Akindayomi also taught us that God cannot stay where ungodly music is played.
This is because music carries a spirit with it. If you play godly music, the spirit of God will stay, but if you play worldly music, demons are invited to stay.
What kind of music do you play in your home?. This can determine if God will stay in your home or not.
Finally, God is love. He cannot stay where strife and bitterness persist.
If you are always fighting and insulting your spouse, you are sending God away.
Instead, pray together, raise an altar of praise in your home.
Once there is an altar where you and your family meet to pray and praise God, you can be sure He will dwell with you for as long as you want Him to.
Jesus loves you and He wants to stay in your home; make it conducive for Him today.
Using the lessons learnt today, make sure everything is in place for your home to be conducive for God to stay in when He comes.
OPEN HEAVEN 15 SEPTEMBER 2020 HYMN
DEEPER, DEEPER IN THE LOVE OF JESUS
1. Deeper, deeper in the love of Jesus
Daily let me go;
Higher, higher in the school of wisdom,
More of grace to know.
O deeper yet I pray,
And higher evry day,
And wiser, blessed, Lord,
In Thy precious, holy Word.
2. Deeper, deeper! blessed Holy Spirit,
Take me deeper still,
Till my life is wholly lost in Jesus,
And His perfect will.
3. Deeper, deeper! tho it cost hard trials,
Deeper let me go!
Rooted in the holy love of Jesus,
Let me fruitful grow.
4. Deeper, higher, evry day in Jesus,
Till all conflict past,
Finds me conquror, and in His own image
Perfected at last.
