MESSAGE: 18th August 2022 || OPEN Heavens Devotional For TODAY — letter to The Philadelphian Church 1

Jesus was full of praises for the Philadelphian Church. He also gave them several promises, only warning them to hold fast. Such a beautiful letter!

In AD 17, Philadelphia experienced a lot of earthquakes. The tremors kept the people of Philadelphia constantly alert.

When people have no troubles, they feel so relaxed and assume that they don’t need God. That is why (1 Peter 1:7) says that trials come to strengthen our faith. The reason you see so much more revival in Africa these days than in the developed world is probably that what we have to pray for in the developing countries is always provided by the respective governments of nations in the developed world. Thus, we have no choice than to do as David did in Psalm 121:1-3 – to look up to the Lord from whence cometh our help.

Once in a while when God sees that a Christian is beginning to fall into spiritual sleep, He sends a trial to wake him up. I believe one of the reasons Solomon started worshipping idols is that after building the temple, he became idle and forgot God. You must always look for new mountains to conquer, you must always say, like Caleb in Joshua 14:12 “…give me this mountain”. Don’t ever feel relaxed as if you don’t need God. If after building the temple, Solomon had decided to advance the Kingdom of God further, he would have had the constant need to rely on God. If you have made a lot of money, use the money to start organising outreaches for the sinners and the poor. Just remain busy for God, asking for new mountains to conquer all the time and you will never forget Him.

History tells us that the Philadelphian Church was a mission-minded one. The members were always witnessing and sending people out on missions. When the Mohammedans came to Asia minor and all the other Churches collapsed, the Philadelphian Church stood firm. There is still a Church in Philadelphia to date. This tells us very clearly that if you are always witnessing, if you are always winning souls, the devil will not be able to make you fall.
