 Open Heaven 20 January 2021 Wednesday Daily Devotional By Pastor E. A. Adeboye – MCY: Rebellion Against Authority

Topic – MCY: Rebellion Against Authority (Open Heaven 20 January 2021)


Memorise: Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God. – Romans 13:1


Read: Romans 13:1-3 (KJV)


1 Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.


2 Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation.


3 For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same:


Bible In One Year: Deuteronomy 24-27


Open Heaven 20 January 2021 Wednesday MESSAGE:

‘RA’ in our equation for Resistance in the Mathematics of Christ in You” (MCY) series which we started on January 11, stands for Rebellion against Authority. Some ‘Christians’ feel they are too big to do God’s work because they are educated. Some refuse to obey their Father-in-the-Lord and still expect to get the best from him. Listen, nothing can flow from him until you submit to his authority. There is a difference between submission and cooperation. You cooperate when the instruction is convenient but submit whether it is convenient or not. Some ‘believers’ resist the authority of the government, their supervisors or spouses. Christ cannot dwell in rebellious souls. Rebellion is as witchcraft. 1 Samuel 15:23 says:


“For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry…”

It is better not to make any sacrifices to God than to do so in disobedience. You should not pay your tithe and refuse to pay your tax. For example, when you knowingly break traffic laws because you want to get to Church early, God will not accept that kind of sacrifice. No matter how big you are, you have a leader. If you are the General Overseer of your Church, the President of the association of Christian leaders to which you belong is your leader. If you are the president of the Christian Association in your country; there is a president of the land who 1 Peter 2:17 says you must honor. If you are the president of your country, there is a union of Presidents in your continent and that union has a leader you are expected to obey. On the other hand, a President can have a Father-in-the-Lord he is to submit to, just like the King of Israel who called Elisha My father’ in 2 Kings 6:21-23. The Father-in-the-Lord too could have leaders he must continue to honor, no matter how great he has become. If you look very closely, you would see that there is an authority figure you are to submit to even if you are a ‘big man’ in your own right.


If you rebel against those God has in authority over you, then Christ cannot dwell and operate in you as He would want to.


Open Heaven 20 January 2021 Wednesday Prayer Point:

Pray that everything that can limit the measure of Christ in you should become zero. Later in the year, we will dedicate a whole day to pray for the full measure of Christ.


Open Heaven 20 January 2021 Wednesday Hymn 1: All Hail The Power Of Jesus Name

All hail the pow’r of Jesus’ Name!

Let angels prostrate fall;

Bring forth the royal diadem,

And crown Him Lord of all!

Ye chosen seed of Israel’s race,

Ye ransomed from the fall,

Hail Him Who saves you by His grace,

And crown Him Lord of all!

Let every kindred, every tribe,

On this terrestrial ball,

To Him all majesty ascribe,

And crown Him Lord of all!

Oh, that with yonder sacred throng

We at His feet may fall!

We’ll join the everlasting song,

And crown Him Lord of all!
