Teens’ Open Heavens 12th November 2017 by Pastor Adeboye - God of Vengeance

Topic: God Of Vengeance [Sunday 12, November 2017]

Memorise: “Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord." - Romans 12:19

Read: Ezekiel 25:12-17

12 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because that Edom hath dealt against the house of Judah by taking vengeance, and hath greatly offended, and revenged himself upon them;

13 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; I will also stretch out mine hand upon Edom, and will cut off man and beast from it; and I will make it desolate from Teman; and they of Dedan shall fall by the sword.

14 And I will lay my vengeance upon Edom by the hand of my people Israel: and they shall do in Edom according to mine anger and according to my fury; and they shall know my vengeance, saith the Lord GOD.

15 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because the Philistines have dealt by revenge, and have taken vengeance with a despiteful heart, to destroy it for the old hatred;

16 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will stretch out mine hand upon the Philistines, and I will cut off the Cherethims, and destroy the remnant of the sea coast.

17 And I will execute great vengeance upon them with furious rebukes; and they shall know that I am the LORD, when I shall lay my vengeance upon them.

Bible In One Year: Acts 1-3. Hymn: Sing Hymn 8: God, Give Us Christian Homes!

MESSAGE:

God is against His children repaying evil for evil to those who have done them evil. No one can avenge like God. When God fights your enemy, even you the hurt will begin to pity them. This is because no one can stand the anger of God. Anytime you try to revenge, you are already playing God and the consequence is unbearable.

Society may tell you to do otherwise. Reasoning may tell you to repay evil in return for the wrong done to you, but the scripture demands that you act differently. You are an ambassador of Christ, you are a peace maker, and you must do everything to prove that.

The world hated Christ without a cause, yet He died for them. When they brought Him before Pontius Pilate, they could not find any blame in Him, yet He was crucified. He died for us while we were yet sinners. This could be our attitude too; never pay evil for evil.

Key Point: When the Lord is on your side, you need not fight your battles yourself.

Sing Hymn 8: God, Give Us Christian Homes!

1. God, give us Christian homes!
Homes where the Bible is loved and taught,
Homes where the Master's will is sought,
Homes crowned with beauty Thy love hath wrought;
God, give us Christian homes;
God, give us Christian homes!

2. God, give us Christian homes!
Homes where the father is true and strong,
Homes that are free from the blight of wrong,
Homes that are joyous with love and song;
God, give us Christian homes;
God, give us Christian homes!

3. God, give us Christian homes!
Homes where the mother, in queenly quest,
Strives to show others Thy way is best,
Homes where the Lord is an honored guest;
God, give us Christian homes;
God, give us Christian homes!

4. God, give us Christian homes!
Homes where the children are led to know
Christ in His beauty Who loves them so,
Homes where the alter fires burn and glow;
God, give us Christian homes;
God, give us Christian homes!.
