Message: – Open Heaven 21 May 2022 Saturday Daily Devotional
In the Bible reading for today, we see the third seal opened and a man on a black horse coming forth with a pair of balance in his hand. Revelation 6:6 says: “And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny”
At this time, as a result of the war we discussed yesterday, the economy of the whole world will be affected. Agriculture in particular will suffer because most of the men who would have cultivated crops and reared animals would have been drafted into the army. Even where there is food, transporting it will be a problem so there will be famine all over the world. Bread will be weighed before it is sold. Food will be extremely expensive.
Revelation 6:6 further says: “and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.” Scarce as food will be, luxury goods will not be touched; they will be very much available. Alcoholic drinks that are consumed by the rich will remain but how will a poor and hungry person get money to buy whisky? Those who think that they are suffering now, yet are still living in sin have not seen anything yet.
Those who miss the rapture will experience extreme hunger. Even those that have the money will not find enough food to buy. While we in heaven will be enjoying unlimited pleasures, singing and dancing, those on earth will be starving and wailing. Any fellow who thinks that sin is sweet now should go on sinning; a time is coming when he will realise that sin is bitter. Choosing a life of holiness is the best decision you can ever make because it secures your future in heaven.
If you say something is too big for you to drop now in order to make heaven, wait until that time and see if that thing will even be relevant at all.
KEY POINT: – Open Heaven 21 May 2022
Nothing will ever be big enough to make me miss heaven, in Jesus name.

HYMN: CONQUERORS AND OVERCOMERS NOW ARE WE
1. Conquerors and overcomers now are we,
Thro’ the precious blood of Christ we’ve victory
If the Lord be for us, we can never fail,
Nothing ‘gainst His mighty pow’r can e’er prevail.
Conquerors are we, thro’ the blood, thro’ the blood,
God will give us victory, thro’ the blood, thro’ the blood
Thro’ the Lamb for sinners slain,
Yet who lives and reigns again,
More than conquerors are we,
More than conquerors are we.
2. In the name of Israel’s God we’ll onward press,
Overcoming sin and all unrighteousness;
Not to us, but unto Him the praise shall be,
For salvation and for blood-bought victory.
3. Unto him that overcometh shall be giv’n,
Here to eat of hidden manna sent from heav’n,
Over yonder he the victor’s palm shall bear,
And a robe of white, and golden crown shall wear.
