New Sound Going Forth by Deborah Waldron Fry
Beloved. Do you hear the rumble and commotion in the streets? It is the Lion of Judah and His sons and daughters taking back territory. For we shall take back the airwaves, the internet, the highways and the byways. Although the enemy goes about as a roaring lion, he is but an imposter.

He has lied to you far too long, My Child. I am Yahweh, He who is Almighty God. I have declared that NO weapon formed against you shall prosper. My warriors are rising up. The powers of darkness are fleeing. Hear this New Sound going forth! It is My Beloved speaking forth prophetic decrees into the atmosphere. My Fire burns in your heart. Your God arises and your enemies are scattered! Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit, says the LORD of Hosts.

Whom shall you fear when I stand by your side, Dear One. I am closer than the shadow at your right hand. Have confidence in the One who loves you and has empowered you. From the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force.

Let My Roar come forth through you, Beloved. Release the FIRE!! And you shall set the captives free with My Love! For I will be unto you a wall of Fire round about, and will be the glory in your midst. Fear not. Your Redeemer lives, and He shall stand at the latter day upon the earth.

...Matthew 11:12 From the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force.

...Job 19:25 For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that He shall stand at the latter day upon the earth:

...Zechariah 2:5 For I, saith the LORD, will be unto her a wall of fire round about, and will be the glory in the midst of her.

...2 Timothy 1:9 He has saved us and called us with a holy calling, not because of our own works, but by His own purpose and by the grace He granted us in Christ Jesus before time eternal.


Be Victory-Minded by Joel Osteen
"The Lord is my strength and my song; he has given me victory."
(Psalm 118:14, NLT)

TODAY'S WORD:

Do you need more joy, victory and confidence in your life today? You might need to evaluate what you are thinking about on a daily basis. If you go around thinking things like, “I’m just average,” “I’ve already reached my limits,” or “I’ve missed so many good opportunities,” those thoughts are going to drag you down. Instead, every morning when you wake up, start your day with thoughts of hope and success. Determine to be victory-minded. The Bible tells us that what we think about we will become. When you think thoughts of success, victory, joy and peace, your life will be filled with success, victory, joy and peace.

No matter what’s going on in the world around you, remember, as a believer in Jesus, greater is He who is in you than he that is in the world. The Greater One lives inside of you! If God is for you, who can be against you? You are an overcomer through Christ. So set your mind on victory and move forward into the abundant life He has for you!

PRAYER FOR TODAY:

Father in heaven, thank You for the gift of another day! I choose to be victory-minded and think on good things today. Remind me, Holy Spirit, to stay focused on the blessings and favor that You have in store for me. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.


Call God “Abba” - by Joyce Meyer
and let us consider [thoughtfully] how we may encourage one another to love and to do good deeds,

— Hebrews 10:24

Fear can be a powerful influence in our lives, but it’s really just the enemy’s perversion of faith. He says to us: “Believe what I’m telling you. This is not going to work. Your prayers aren’t any good. You don’t have right standing with God. You are a failure.”

Fear always tells you what you’re not, what you don’t have, what you can’t do and what you’ll never be. But Romans 8:15 says that you are a child of God who can call Him "Abba Father."

The word Abba was a term little children used in addressing their fathers. It would be similar to our word “Daddy.” It is less formal than Father and denotes a comfortable closeness between a child and his or her father.

Jesus said we could call God Abba because He had delivered us from all fear. He will always take care of His beloved children, and we can approach Him without fear of rejection. When we run to Him with any problem or pain, He’s waiting with open arms to comfort and encourage us.



Right Relationships by Dr. Charles Stanley
Proverbs 27:17

To become the people God wants us to be, it’s essential that we choose the right relationships. They are extremely important because without them, we will be unable to accomplish much in life. We should pursue relationships with people who:

• Build our confidence in God as well as in ourselves.
• Encourage us when we are troubled and despondent.
• Stimulate us to reach our potential.
• Energize us when we are weary.
• Comfort us when we are hurting.
• Defend us when we are attacked.
• Forgive us when we make mistakes.
• Love us unconditionally.
• Confront us when we go astray.
• Serve us when we are overextended.

It is good to ask ourselves if we have anyone in our life who fills the needs mentioned on this list. It is also important to discover which relationships may be deflecting us from the path of godliness. When this happens, we may have to separate from certain individuals in order to maintain our standards. But when separation is not an option—as when the unhealthy relationship involves a family member—we can still persevere and walk with God.

Now, let’s look at the same list from a different angle: Do you do those things for others? We can determine to provide those qualities to people around us. Such relationships are among life’s greatest treasures.

Bible in One Year: Exodus 22-24


God Has Provided Healing by Jerry Savelle
January 23, 2018
Today, I want to talk about being thankful for God’s provision of healing. We have a covenant right to walk in divine health.

Some people say that God puts sickness on people and disease to teach us something. That is not in the Word! Jesus never said, “I’d sure like to help you, but God told me that He is trying to teach you something.” In fact, the opposite is true. The Word says that when multitudes of people came to Jesus, He had compassion on them and healed them ALL (Matthew 14:14). Acts 10:38 says,”God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil.” Not once did Jesus refuse to heal anybody. When a person said,”Master, I know you can heal me if you will,” He didn’t answer, “I know I can too, but I won’t.”

Look at Mark 16:17,18. It says, “these signs shall follow the believer…They shall lay hands on the sick, and the sick shall recover.” In Exodus 15:26 it says: “I am the Lord that healeth thee.” If you’ll read Psalm 103:2-5, you’ll see that it says He forgives our inquities and heals all of our diseases.

When Jesus died at Calvary, we see Him doing what Isaiah said He would: bearing our sin, our sickness, and our diseases. Jesus became a curse for us. He bore every sickness and disease listed in Deuteronomy 28. After naming all kinds of sicknesses and diseases, it says, “Also every sickness, and every plague, which is not written in the book of this law” (v.61). From the common cold to cancer – every sickness is under the curse. And, we have been redeemed by the blood of the Lamb!

God wants you to receive your healing. He doesn’t care whether you go to the physician or to the minister as long as you put His Word first place in your life. According to Proverbs 4:22, the Word is health to your flesh. Begin to put the Word in your heart, confess it, and allow it to be medicine to your flesh.

Jesus Christ is the High Priest of our confession, and He will back His Word. Your symptoms may tell you that you are sick, but God says that you are healed.

Aren’t you glad God doesn’t want you sick? Today, be thankful for God’s provision for healing.

Confession: Thank you Father for providing my healing at Calvary. Health and healing are mine because You have redeemed me from the curse of the law.

Acknowledge God by Tammy Lang Jensen
The gravy train is gone, but the glory train is on the way. Tickets come at a high price, which doesn’t include silver or gold.

It will cost, however, surrender, sacrifice, allegiance, trustworthiness, faithfulness, diligence, determination, blood, sweat and tears. A never say die, warrior mentality. The Army that God is building now, is not for the faint of heart. If you are into “Get it your way!” God will probably show you the highway.

Let nothing be done through strife or vain glory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than themselves. Not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of others (Philippians 2:3-4). In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy path (Proverbs 3:6). I will illuminate your path, but you will not find it with your natural eyes.

It must be felt with your heart and soul. Only the most trusting with childlike faith will find it. Then he said, I tell you the truth, unless you turn from your sins and become like little children, you will never get into the kingdom of heaven (Matthew 18:3). Turn to Me, trust in Me, I am not a man that I should lie. All my promises are Yes and Amen! Bring glory to your Father in heaven, and pull all thoughts into the obedience of Christ.

So shall I fear the name of the Lord from the west, and His glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard against him (Isaiah 59:19). We are the standard, won’t you join me in praying one for the other. Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results (James 5:16).

He will deliver even one who is not innocent, who will be delivered through the cleanness of your hands (Job 22:30). I hear a mighty call from heaven for Armor Bearers to arise. Who will walk a mile with your brother. If a soldier demands that you carry his gear for a mile, carry it two miles (Matthew 5:41). Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed. If one person falls, the other can reach out and help.

But someone who falls alone is in real trouble (Ecclesiastes 4:9-10). A person standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but two can stand back-to-back and conquer. Three are even better, for a triple braided cord is not easily broken (Ecclesiastes 4:12). As the darker days roll in, and the Son is not easily come by. Look toward your Savior, and His glory will light your way....

See That You’ve Been Glorified by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome
Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new (2 Corinthians 5:17).

When Adam and Eve disobeyed God by eating of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, the Bible says “…the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked...” (Genesis 3:7). Their fall made them “see” that they were naked, and they became ashamed and afraid. When God called out to Adam in the Garden, he replied, “…I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself” (Genesis 3:10). The Lord’s response to him was, “…Who told thee that thou wast naked?...” (Genesis 3:11).

It matters what you see and how you see. Adam saw his guilt and his shame, but that’s not what God wants you to see. Isaiah 33:20 says, “ Look upon Zion, the city of our solemnities: thine eyes shall see Jerusalem a quiet habitation….” The Hebrew word for “look” is “cha?za?h,” and it means to look and see from the realm of the spirit; to see the unseen. It was this ability to see from the spirit-realm that Adam and Eve lost, and couldn’t see the glory anymore.

Now, our theme scripture says, “…if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” The word “behold” is the Greek “idou,” which is akin to the Hebrew word, “cha?za?h.” It means to become spiritually aware, to see, and come alive to what you see. God wants you to see, become spiritually aware, that you’re clothed with glory. The glory that was lost is now restored and realized in Christ.

That’s the meaning of Colossians 1:27. “Christ in you the hope of glory” means glory has been realized; it has come! Jesus said, “And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them…” (John 17:22). Therefore, see that you’ve been glorified! Romans 8:30 declares, “Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also…glorified.”

There’s no reason to be afraid or run from God; He’s taken away all the guilt, reproach and shame from your life and wants you to see that you’re now His righteousness in Christ Jesus. See that you’ve been justified by faith and have peace with God! See that you’re a success and a victor forever. Hallelujah!

PRAYER Dear Father, I love you; I thank you for granting me insight into realities, to see and walk in your glory. My life is the expression of your beauty, excellence, and wisdom, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

Open Heavens: Faith of the Spirit I by  by Pastor E. A. Adeboye
Tuesday January 23rd 2018

Memorise: Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law. Romans 13:10

Read: Galatians 5:22-26 (KJV)
5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,

5:23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

5:24 And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.

 5:25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.

5:26 Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.

Bible in one year: 
Genesis 48-50,
Revelation 21:9-27,

Hymnal: 
Sing hymn 2

Message:
Over the next few days, we shall be taking a closer look at the important subject of the fruit of the Spirit. Our Bible text spells out the fruit of the Spirit as these; love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness and temperance. In considering this important subject matter, the keywords to take hold of are “Fruit” and “Spirit”. From these keywords, we understand that the fruit of the Spirit have their origin in the Person of the Holy Spirit. Therefore, a person who has no relationship with the Holy Spirit cannot exhibit the fruit of the Spirit, no matter how hard he or she tries. The good news is, if you have given your life to Christ, the Holy Spirit dwells inside you. This truth is established in Romans 8:9b which says:

“Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ he is none of his.”

However, for you to manifest the fruit of the Holy Spirit dwelling inside of you, you need to cultivate a relationship with the Holy Spirit by walking side by side with Him every day. This is the reason why, after outlining the fruit of the Spirit, Paul in Galatians 5:6
wrote,

“If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.”

What does it mean to walk in the Spirit? It means interacting with the Holy Spirit like a friend that you can see. It means asking Him what His opinion is before making any move, and yielding to His directions even when they are contrary to yours. It means listening to His voice before wearing that outfit, taking that job or picking that spouse. It means speaking what He suggests to you as the appropriate thing to say to that person. It means keeping quite when He instructs you to shut your mouth. It means giving out what gift that He nudges you to bless that fellow with. It means yielding to His voice when He reminds you to forgive that person who wronged you. When you cultivate such a relationship, the fruit of the Spirit will no longer be a checklist of character traits to be worked on. It will become your nature, effortlessly flowing from within you.

 Let’s take a closer look at each of the character traits that emanate from walking with the Holy Spirit. Today, we will begin with love. open heavens 22 January 2018. Without the manifestation of love, our confession of faith becomes hypocritical (1st John 3:16-18). To love can be tough and difficult sometimes, and this is why we need to daily ask the Holy Spirit to pour out His love into our hearts (Romans 5:5). We need to demonstrate the God kind of love for the world to know that we are Christ’s disciples indeed. This will motivates them to join us as we journey to heaven with joy unspeakable, full of glory.

Prayer Point
Precious Holy Spirit, as I walk You day by day, speak to me, comfort me, teach me, guide me and show me things to come, just like the Lord Jesus Christ said You would. Amen.

Open Heavens Daily Devotional Lessons was written by Pastor E.A. Adeboye, the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, one of the largest evangelical Church in the world and also the President of Christ the Redeemer's Ministries.


Don't Look To Your Faith, Look To Jesus by Joseph Prince
Hebrews 12:2

looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith...

If you are sick, you must know that you are already healed because of the finished work of Christ. Don’t ask, “Do I have enough faith to be healed? Do I have the right kind of faith to be healed? What if I am lacking in faith?” You are focusing on yourself and your faith, instead of Christ and His finished work.

You should be asking, “Did Jesus take away this sickness? If He did, then He must have done a perfect work.” In other words, fix your eyes on Jesus and His perfect work.

AB Simpson, who lived in the 19th century, wrote an article entitled Himself. In it, he mentioned his exhausted nervous system, and broken-down heart which could have proved fatal any time. So he sought the Lord for healing. God showed him Matthew 8:17, which says that Jesus “Himself took our infirmities and bore our sicknesses”.

AB Simpson said that though he believed that Jesus had borne away his sicknesses, he saw many hindrances which stood between him and his healing. And they all boiled down to one thing—his preoccupation with his faith! He had believed that if only he had the “right” kind of faith, he would receive his healing instantly.

He eventually came to the realization that he had to remove that last hindrance—his focus on his faith—and just rest in the finished work of Christ. That revelation marked his complete recovery from his sicknesses.

When you ask yourself, “Do I have enough faith?” you have already put faith as a hindrance between you and Jesus’ finished work. The more you focus on your faith, the more faith slips away. But if you focus on the finished work of Christ and see God’s grace toward you, God sees that as faith! Without realizing it, faith is there in your heart to believe that you will not die of what Christ Himself has already borne away completely for you, and you will see your miracle manifest!


Our Absolute Obedience by John Hagee
Exodus 1:17—But the midwives feared God and did not as the king of Egypt commanded them, but saved the men children alive.

Our Absolute Obedience Must Be To The Word Of God—Not To A Denomination…Not To A Man…Not To The President…Not To A Government!

The word of God is powerful.  The word of God is true.  If we are to use the sword of the Spirit effectively, we must obey the word.  We respect our government and pray for our leaders; but our first allegiance is to the word of God.

Let me pose a question:  Is it ever wrong to obey the government?  The answer is yes.  When the government condones what God condemns, your commitment is to abide by the word of God.

In the Old Testament, Pharaoh had an extermination policy of Jewish male children.  The midwives of Egypt were commanded to kill the children upon birth.  The midwives feared God, so they disobeyed Pharaoh and the Bible says God blessed them for it.  They defied their government and God blessed them for it.  Moses’ parents defied the government of Egypt.  When their son was born, they hid him.

Corrie Ten Boom, a Dutch woman who lived in Holland during the Second World War, hid Jews in her home so that Hitler’s Nazis could not find them.  She went to prison for disobeying the government.  She went through the hell of a German concentration camp because of her obedience to God’s word.  But God blessed her for it.  I guarantee you that when you get to heaven, you’ll have to walk a day and a half to get around the mansion God has prepared for her.  The point is, when the government approves what God condemns, we stand with the word of God.
