Open Heaven 27 March 2024 TOPIC: Thou Shall Not Steal

MEMORISE: “Thou shalt not steal.” – Exodus 20:15 (KJV)

READ: Ephesians 4:27-28 (KJV)

27 Neither give place to the devil.

28 Let him who stole no more steal; instead, let him labor, working with his hands the excellent thing that he may have to give to him who needeth.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: 1 Samuel 19-21

Open Heaven 27 March 2024 MESSAGE

Many take what belongs to other people because of the lust of the eyes, the pride of life, and the lust of the flesh. The obsession with having it all without working for them and being controlled by material things eventually leads to stealing. God wants you to have everything you need in His way and time. He is willing to give you everything you need and more, but you must seek Him and His righteousness first.

Nobody can bless you more than God, so it is better to wait for God’s blessing because it will make you rich without any form of sorrow being added to it (Proverbs 10:22). Don’t let the devil deceive you with flashy things. Mark 8:36 says that all the material gains will profit you nothing if you lose your soul. Beloved, please do not trade your soul for material gains by stealing. Nothing at all in this world is worth your soul.

God frowns strongly at stealing. If you desire to have more, work more. Do not take from those who have labored for their possessions. Some people try to categorize and rationalize stealing. For example, some people will say corruption is not stealing. Some will even try to explain why internet fraud is different from stealing. Beloved the moment a person takes something that does not belong to them without the owner’s permission or under pretenses, that fellow has stolen.

In 1 Corinthians 6:10, the Bible clarifies that no thief will enter heaven. The devil is the father, Fathereves, because, according to John 10:10, stealing is his first assignment in any man’s life. My father, Father Lord, Pa Josiah Akindayomi, used to say that your father, Fatherake, cared for you with whatever he had. If your Father is God, He will take care of you with healing, blessings, and long life, but if your Father is Father’s devil, he will take care of you with sicknesses, marital problems, death, and the like. Thieves should never expect God to answer their prayers because God is not their father. Fatherviticus 6:4 and Exodus 22:1-4 God said that if you have stolen something, you are to return it to the fellow you stole from in double fold. Don’t keep the stolen property in your possession. Finally, let him that stole steal no more: but rather let him labor, working with his hands the excellent thing that he may have to give to him that needeth (Ephesians 4:28).

Open Heaven 27 March 2024 KEY POINT

Stealing puts you in the camp of the devil and gives him lordship over you. Don’t steal.

Open Heaven 27 March 2024 HYMN 31 – Yield Not To Temptation

1 Yield not to temptation,
For yielding is a sin;
Each vict’ry will help you,
Some other to win;
Fight valiantly onward,
Evil passions subdue;
Look ever to Jesus,
He will carry you through.

Ask the Savior to help you,
Comfort, strengthen, and keep you;
He is willing to aid you,
He will carry you through.

2 Shun evil companions,
Bad language disdain;
God’s name is held in reverence,
Nor take it in vain;
Be thoughtful and earnest,
Kindhearted and true;
Look ever to Jesus,
He will carry you through.

3 To him that overcometh,
God giveth a crown;
Through faith, we will conquer,
Though often cast down;
He who is our Savior,
Our strength will renew;
Look ever to Jesus,
He will carry you through.
