MEMORISE: I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star. – Revelation 22:16

READ: Revelation 16:12-16 (KJV)

12 And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared.

13 And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.

14 For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.

15 Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame.

16 And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Joshua 15-17

Open Heaven 11 March 2022 MESSAGE:

Jesus Christ introduced Himself as the Bright and Morning Star in our Bible reading today before making some important declarations concerning His expectations from us as well as our promised reward. He was very clear about His expectations because not only does He want us to be like Him, He also wants us to perform greater works (John 12:14).

To become shinning stars like our Lord Jesus, we must acknowledge that we were filthy sinners before we encounter Jesus (1 John 1:7-9); Romans 3:23). This knowledge will take us to Calvary where the Bright and Morning Star bled and died for us to access forgiveness and cleansing. This is when we confess and repent of our sins. Two, we must live strictly by Hs standards. Many people want to benefit from the innumerable blessings of the Bright and Morning Star including shinning in the darkness of this world, but they are not ready to surrender completely to His Lordship. If Adam and Eve had known whom they belonged to, they would never have succumbed to the deceit of the devil which suddenly turned their day into night.

What are the characteristics of the Bright and Morning Star? He never sinned; hence, to shine like Him we too must live a sin-free life. Many may claim that this is impossible, but it is possible because the Bible says those who are born of God do not sin; indeed, they cannot sin because the seed of God is within them (1 John 3:9). How? John 1:11-12 says that as many as believe Jesus He gives power to become children of God.

The Bright and Morning Star has never been overwhelmed by darkness; even in the day, He still shines brightly to the whole world. The Bible says, “And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not (John 1:5). Sickness is a form of darkness and Jesus Christ was never sick. I therefore declare that the Bright and Morning Star will make sickness history in your life.

Do you want to shine like the Bright and Morning Star? Give your life to Him first, and then begin to live strictly by His commandment.

Open Heaven 11 March 2022 PRAYER POINT:

Father, please send your light upon me and let me begin to shine like my Lord – the Bright and Morning Star, in the mighty name of Jesus.

Open Heaven 11 March 2022 HYMN 13: My Hope Is Built On Nothing Less

1. My hope is built on nothing less
than Jesus’ blood and righteousness;
I dare not trust the sweetest frame,
but wholly lean on Jesus’ name.

On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand:
all other ground is sinking sand;
all other ground is sinking sand.

2. When darkness veils his lovely face,
I rest on his unchanging grace;
in every high and stormy gale,
my anchor holds within the veil.

3. His oath, his covenant, his blood,
support me in the whelming flood;
when all around my soul gives way,
he then is all my hope and stay.

4. When he shall come with trumpet sound,
O may I then in him be found:
dressed in his righteousness alone,
faultless to stand before the throne.
