Open Heaven 8 February 2024 TOPIC: What Kind Of Vessel?

MEMORISE: “So shall it be at the end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just,” – Matthew 13:49 (KJV)

READ: 2 Timothy 2:15-21 (KJV)

15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

16 But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness.

17 And their word will eat as doth a canker: of whom are Hymenaeus and Philetus;

18 Who concerning the truth have erred, saying that the resurrection is past already; and overthrow the faith of some.

19 Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, let every one that nameth the name of Christ departs from iniquity.

20 But in a great house, there are vessels of gold and silver, but also wood and the earth; some to honor, and some to dishonor.

21 If a man purges himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honor, sanctified, meet for the Master’s use, and prepared unto every good work.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Numbers 3-4

Open Heaven 8 February 2024 MESSAGE

In today’s Bible reading, the various kinds of vessels found in a great man’s house were identified. It says you will find some vessels unto honor and some unto dishonor. This may make you wonder if Won the great man keeps man keeps vessels unto dishonor in his house. Why doesn’t he throw them away? This is the same question that many ask when they consider the body of Christ today. They say, “Why does God not kill all fake pastors? Why does He not expose all those using His name to amass wealth and fame for themselves?” The answer to that is in Matthew 13:24-30. Verses 29 and 30, in particular, say:

But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them. Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest, I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.

Our God does not act rashly; He does everything for a reason. There are some fake pastors that some genuine Christians believe to be real. If God destroys such pastors, it could affect the faith of those following them. As such, the tares would have been gathered, but the wheat would have unfortunately been rooted up with them. Don’t worry about the mixed multitude in the church; God is coming to separate the wheat from the tares, and there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth when He does.

If you claim to be a Christian, yet you are bringing dishonor to the Lord, you better change now. If such a person refuses to change, that is not a problem. The fire that will consume them is getting hotter every day. Such a person can keep enjoying the benefits of being called a Christian for now. However, God is coming with a reward for such deceivers, and He will take no apologies on that day.

Beloved, if you are one of such deceivers, it is in your best interest to genuinely repent now, forsake your sinful ways, and truly surrender your life to Jesus Christ. It is the only way to escape the judgment coming for all those vessels unto dishonor.

Open Heaven 8 February 2024 HYMN 23 – Take My Life, And Let It Be

1 Take my life and let it be
Consecrated, Lord, to Thee;
Take my moments and my days,
Let them flow in ceaseless praise,
Let them flow in endless praise.

2 Take my hands and let them move
At the impulse of Thy love;
Take my feet and let them be
Swift and beautiful for Thee,
Swift and beautiful for Thee.

3 Take my voice, and let me sing
Always, only, for my King;
Take my lips, and let them be
Filled with messages from Thee,
Filled with messages from Thee.

4 Take my silver and my gold;
Not a mite would I withhold;
Take my intellect and use
Every power as Thou shalt choose,
Every power as Thou shalt choose.

5 Take my will, and make it Thine;
It shall be no longer mine.
Take my heart; it is Thine own;
It shall be Thy royal throne,
It shall be Thy royal throne.

6 Take my love; my Lord, I pour
At Thy feet is treasure-store.
Take me, and I will be
Ever, only, all for Thee,
Ever, only, all for Thee.
