Open Heavens For TEENS: Thursday 19 October 2017 by Pastor Adeboye - I Know Your Works IV

Topic: I Know Your Works IV [Thursday 19, October 2017]

Memorise: "1 This is a true saying, If a man desire the office of a bishop, he desireth a good work. 2 A bishop then must be blameless…" - 1 Timothy 3:1-2a

Read: Revelation 2:18-24

18 And unto the angel of the church in Thyatira write; These things saith the Son of God, who hath his eyes like unto a flame of fire, and his feet are like fine brass;

19 I know thy works, and charity, and service, and faith, and thy patience, and thy works; and the last to be more than the first.

20 Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols.

21 And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not.

22 Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds.

23 And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall know that I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works.

24 But unto you I say, and unto the rest in Thyatira, as many as have not this doctrine, and which have not known the depths of Satan, as they speak; I will put upon you none other burden.

Bible In One Year: Mark 12-13. Hymn: Sing Hymn 4 - Take My Life And Let It Be


God is mindful of those who occupy His altar and He will hold in contempt, not only those who climb the altar with profanity but also those who allow them to climb.

As we have mentioned over and over, the Almighty God knows the details of our service. This should always be a consolation to us, especially when it seems our services in the Church are not being appreciated. Know this; your Father in Heaven who sees in secret will always reward you in the open. The greatest lesson with a strong warning is that your service is not perfect when it is laden with immorality and any form of evil. Some Chapel prefects and leaders in the teenage church are guilty of this. The Lord is warning someone using this devotional that has been using service to cover up his or her immorality and greed. Repent today and stop polluting the sanctuary of the Lord. The consequences of your defiant attitude to this warning are severe as seen in Revelation 2:22-23. May the Almighty God have mercy in Jesus' Name.

Prayer Point: Father, wherever I have been missing it in my service to You, please help me make amends.
