Bible Reading: Revelation 2:20-23 Open Heaven 14 August 2022
20. Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols.
21. And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not.
22. Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds.
23. And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall know that I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works.

MESSAGE: – Open Heaven 14 August 2022 Sunday Daily Devotional
In our Bible reading today, Jesus tells us what will happen to Jezebel if she does not repent. There are many people in the body of Christ now, talking about old-fashioned Christianity. They say some of the things which form the foundations of living a Christian life are no longer necessary and we can do things differently and still remain Christians. They say as long as your heart is in tune with God, it does not matter how you dress, it is the heart that matters.
They forget that it is what is in the heart that will reflect outside. They say you can have intimate friends who are sinners as long as you do not join them in committing sins. They forget that it is evil communication that corrupts good manners.
If you are one of those encouraging people to be a little slack with their Christian life so that they can enjoy some of the benefits of this world, you are a Jezebel.
How can you say there is something like old-fashioned Christianity when Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever (Hebrews 13:8)? There is nothing like old-fashioned or modern Christianity. Christianity is about becoming like Jesus.
Any doctrine or teaching that encourages a mixture with the world system is not Christianity at all, it is the doctrine of Jezebel. Stop teaching, tolerating or encouraging it. God said He will punish Jezebel by confining her to a bed. Many people develop some stubborn sicknesses without knowing that the root is from God Himself. Unless they repent, they will die from the sickness and not only them but their children also.
Jesus said in Matthew 18:7 “Woe unto the world because of offences! for it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh!”
You had better be careful what you teach the children of God so that you don’t end up being cursed by God Himself.
Key Point: Open Heaven 14 August 2022
There is no old-fashioned Christianity; always teach the undiluted word of God when given the opportunity.

HYMN: DEEPER, DEEPER IN THE LOVE OF JESUS
1. Deeper, deeper in the love of Jesus
Daily let me go;
Higher, higher in the school of wisdom,
More of grace to know.
O deeper yet I pray,
And higher evry day,
And wiser, blessed, Lord,
In Thy precious, holy Word.
2. Deeper, deeper! blessed Holy Spirit,
Take me deeper still,
Till my life is wholly lost in Jesus,
And His perfect will.
3. Deeper, deeper! tho it cost hard trials,
Deeper let me go!
Rooted in the holy love of Jesus,
Let me fruitful grow.
4. Deeper, higher, evry day in Jesus,
Till all conflict past,
Finds me conquror, and in His own image
Perfected at last.
