Open Heavens 2017: Divine visitation


Divine visitation
Wednesday April 12, 2017
Memory Verse:
Luke 1:68
Blessed be the Lord God of Israel; for He hath visited and redeemed Hs people

Read Jeremiah 29: 10-11 (KJV 2000)
10 For thus says the Lord: After seventy years are completed at Babylon, I will visit you and perform My good word toward you, and cause you to return to this place. 
11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. 


Bible in One Year: Click on scripture to read

Hymn:
I have decided to follow Jesus





Message:

Luke 7:14-16 New King James Version (NKJV)

14 Then He came and touched the open coffin, and those who carried him stood still. And He said, “Young man, I say to you, arise.” 

15 So he who was dead sat up and began to speak. And He presented him to his mother.

16 Then fear came upon all, and they glorified God, saying, “A great prophet has risen up among us”; and, “God has visited His people.”

The account of events in the above passage of scripture is indicative of what a divine visitation looks like.
Divine visitation with its attendant supernatural occurrences brings joy to the heart of those visited. I pray that God will Visit you today and your joy shall be full in Jesus name.
I our bible text today, Prophet Jeremiah gave a revelation concerning the future deliverance of Israel from bondage. He prophesied that this would be realised by the power of divine visitation.

When God comes visiting, He comes with deliverance from bondage and servitude like He did when He visited the children of Israel in Egypt (Exodus 4:31).

When the children of Israel, because of their spiritual decadence found themselves in Babylonian bondage again, His love for His friend, Abraham their father, compelled Hi to promise another divine visitation.


In Jeremiah 29:10, He sent His word to them in Babylon saying:

Jeremiah 29:10 For thus says the Lord: After seventy years are completed at Babylon, I will visit you and perform My good word toward you, and cause you to return to this place

Also, Zacharias, the father of John the Baptist, prophesied under the influence of the Holy Spirit about the coming of redemption to Israel through yet another divine visitation (Luke 1:68)


68 “Blessed is the Lord God of Israel,
For He has visited and redeemed His people
 Divine visitation brought salvation to mankind, when God personally came in the form of man to dwell among us, suffered, died and rose again so that we may obtain salvation (1 Timothy 3:16).



Beloved, do you want divine visitation of salvation> Jesus Christ says this to you today:

Read also:
Revelation 3:20

Open the door of your heart to Him today, accept Him as your personal Lord and Saviour , and He will come in right away and give you the gift of salvation.

Prayer Point:
Lord Jesus, please visit me today, make Your abode in my life and give me Your gift of salvation.
