Open Heaven 27 August 2022 TOPIC: You Are Special
MEMORISE: “But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows.” – Luke 12:7 (KJV)
READ: 1 Peter 1:18-19 (KJV)
18 Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers;
19 But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Jeremiah 17-20
Open Heaven For Today 27 August 2022 MESSAGE:
The amount kidnappers ask for as ransom is proportionate to how important their victim is considered. The Bible says that we all have sinned and come short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23). It also says that those who sin are of their father the devil (John 8:44-45). This means that when God wanted to snatch us from the hands of the devil, He needed to provide a ransom. He is very rich so gold and silver are not a problem to Him at all. However, He deemed gold and Silver too cheap to use in paying our ransom because of how special we are. He sees you as so special that He sent His only Begotten Son, His very own Word, to redeem you and me.

The fact that He sent His Son to die so that you may have life, to shed His blood so that the devil cannot drink yours, to take multiple stripes on His body so that you would not be sick should be enough to make you walk around with your head held high because you are very special.
As long as you are a child of God, you are extremely special. He said in Isaiah 49:16 that He has a tattoo on his palm and that tattoo is your picture;
“Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands; thy walls are continually before me”.
In heaven, there are many angels. One of these angels can kill 185,000 men in one night; that is an ordinary angel. The Bible tells us that there is another category of angels that are strong (Revelation 5:2) – you can imagine how powerful those must be. Then there are the Arc Angels who stand before Him (Revelation 8:2). He did not decide to adopt any of the angels as His children, leaving them in the position of messengers; however, He loves you so much, He decided to adopt you as His child and the angels should be your messengers. (1 John 3:1) says;
“Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God”
Even if it seems nobody in the world loves or values you, the King of the entire universe loves you with an everlasting love (Jeremiah 31:3) and values you above angels and all His creations.
Open Heaven 27 August 2022 KEY POINT:
You are worth more than all the treasures of this world put together.
Open Heaven 27 August 2022 HYMN 4: Great Is Thy Faithfulness, O God My Father
1 Great is Thy faithfulness, O God my Father;
There is no shadow of turning with Thee;
Thou changest not, Thy compassions, they fail not;
As Thou has been Thou forever wilt be.
Great is Thy faithfulness!
Great is Thy faithfulness!
Morning by morning new mercies I see.
All I have needed Thy hand hath provided
Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord unto me!
2 Summer and winter, and springtime and harvest,
Sun, moon, and stars in their courses above,
Join with all nature in manifold witness
To Thy great faithfulness, mercy, and love.
3 Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth
Thine own dear presence to cheer and to guide!
Strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow.
Blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside!

Salvation Prayer: To experience the love and the many folds of God’s blessing there’s a need to be part of him by being born again. If you are ready to be part of this noble family kindly pray this prayer with me:
Lord Jesus, I believe you are the son of God who paid the price for my sins on the cross of Calvary, I believe you are risen and defeated in death. I repent from everything that’s dishonoring to your name, I receive you as my lord and personal saviour and I come into eternal life. Amen. Thank you, Lord, for saving me.
