GOD IS TAKING RECORDS
For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one. – 1 John 5:7 (KJV)
Hebrews 12:1-2 (NIV)
1 Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us,
2 fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
Open Heaven 31 March 2023 Message
When you read the Letters to the Churches in the book of Revelation, you would realise that everything that we Christians do here on earth is being observed and recorded in heaven — every single thing.
There was once a lady who agreed to go with her Pastor to a hotel to commit fornication. Before they went into the room, they looked left and right to be sure that no one could see them going in.
After they got inside, the lady became uncomfortable and told the Pastor, “We looked left and right to be sure no one was looking at us, but we did not look up; God can see us”. 2 Chronicles 16:9 says that God’s eyes are going to and fro all over the earth.
When temptations come your way, God is watching you closely to see if you will fall or not. In fact, God and the devil are watching closely. If you fall, then the devil will go boasting to God that he won over you.
God forbid that in Jesus’ name. If however, you overcome the temptation, then God will be the one boasting that you are His true child. In Job 19:25-27, Job said it didn’t matter what was happening; his Redeemer was still alive.
God must have said to the devil, “Did you hear that?” That is why you must fight every temptation to ensure that you win at the end of the day.
I don’t know about you, but I will never let the devil use me as an object to boast before God. Imagine the joy in heaven when Job finally overcame his temptations. The good thing about God seeing everything we do is that when we do good, He sees it and will reward everyone accordingly.
If you have been doing good and it looks like no one is noticing, God can see you and in good time, He will reward you. Galatians 6:9 says, And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.
The moment someone stops doing good and starts sinning, all the good that he or she had done in the past will not be accounted for again (Ezekiel 18:24). Beloved, what is God recording about you right now?
