RCCG Open Heaven 1 January 2022 Devotional | Saturday Message
The Lord has helped us to pass over into the glorious new year 2021 Let somebody shout hallelujah!
The topic of our devotional today is very prophetic and I join my faith with yours to decree that this month shall be unto you the beginning of great and mighty miracles in your life in the mighty name of Jesus.
As seen in our memory verse today, God is telling us that this is a beginning of months we shall not forget for good in a hurry. It is the beginning of freedom from all bondage, sorrow, poverty, sickness, failure and eternal perdition for those who have given their lives to Christ.
God describes the period of the first Passover which was followed by the deliverance of the children of Israel as the beginning of months. Beloved, you have not started to live until you are totally free from bondage.
In spite of the fact that the children of Israel had lived for over 400 years in bondage, the month of their deliverance was described by God as the actual month that counted!
What did they do to obtain the freedom that announced the counting of their existence? They applied the blood of the lamb as they were instructed to do. This was a similitude of the blood of Jesus that was to be shed for our deliverance from all forms of bondage. The Bible says:
“For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifieth to the purifying of the flesh: How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God? Hebrews 9:13-14”
I congratulate fellow children of God all over the world and pray that nothing would rob us of our freedom in Christ throughout this year and beyond, in Jesus’ name.
As we read in the Bible reading today, may the blessings of the Lord fill our lives to overflowing in Jesus’ name. If however, you are yet to give your life to Jesus, I encourage you to do so today so that you may be free from the bondage of the devil .
The blood of Jesus is still very much accessible through faith; just confess your sins, repent of them and be cleansed by the blood of Jesus (1 John 1:7-9). It shall be well with you. Happy New Year, in Jesus’ name.
PRAYER POINT: Lord, I thank you for sustaining me throughout 2021 and for bringing me into another year. Please let this year indeed mark the beginning of outstanding miracles in my life, in Jesus name.
OPEN HEAVEN 1 JANUARY 2022 HYMN
NOW THANK WE ALL OUR GOD
1.Now thank we all our God,
With hearts, and hands and voices;
Who wondrous things hath done,
In Whom His world rejoices;
Who, from our mother’s arms,
Hath bless’d us on our way
With countless gifts to love
And still is ours to-day.
2.O may this bounteous God
Through all our life be near us,
With ever-joyful hearts
And blessed peace to cheer us,
And keep us in His grace
And guide us when perplexed,
And free us from all ills
In this world and the next.
3.All praise and thanks to God
The Father now be given,
The Son, and Him who reigns
With them in the highest heaven
The One, Eternal God,
Whom earth and heaven adore;
For thus it was, is now,
And shall be evermore.
