Topic: He Is Our Seal [Teens’ Open Heavens Saturday 27th, January 2018]

Memorise: In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that Holy Spirit of promise.Ephesians 1:13

Read: Ephesians 1:11-14 (KJV)

11 In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will:

12 That we should be to the praise of his glory, who first trusted in Christ.

13 In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise,

14 Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory.

Bible In One Year: Exodus 13-15, Matthew 19:1-15


MESSAGE:

The Holy Spirit guides you into all truth and sets you free. John says the Holy Spirit will show you things to come. He is a ‘Revealer’ of future events. There is hardly anyone who does not want to know tomorrow. Quite a number of people have ensnared themselves while seeking information about their future. Yet they keep a distance from the One who can assuredly tell them of tomorrow. Unlike agents of darkness who can foretell by the spirit of divination but provide destructive solutions to the problems, the Holy Spirit guides His own into future events and provides appropriate solutions to problems identified. The level of the revelation of the future you have is a function of your closeness to the Holy Spirit. How close are you to the ‘Revealer’ of secrets?

The Holy Spirit is also the One who seals every born again Christian till the day of rapture. Without the Holy Spirit dwelling in a person, he cannot make it into Heaven. How much of the Holy Spirit do you have in you?

Action Point: Spend 30 minutes thanking the Holy Spirit for being your seal and Comforter.


Hymn 14:

1. O spread the tidings ’round,
Wherever man is found,
Wherever human hearts and
Human woes abound.
Let every Christian tongue
Proclaim the joyful sound:
The comforter has come!

Chorus:
The Comforter has come!
The Comforter has come!
The Holy Ghost from heav’n,
The Father’s Promise giv’n,
O spread the tidings ’round,
Wherever man is found:
The Comforter has come!

2. The long, long night is past;
The morning breaks at last;
And hushed the dreadful wail
And fury of the blast,
As o’er the golden hills
The day advances fast!
The Comforter has come!

3. Lo, the great Kings of Kings,
With healing in His wings,
To every captive soul
a full deliv’rance brings;
And thro’ the vacant cells
The song of triumph rings;
The Comforter has come!

4. O boundless love divine!
How shall this tongue of mine
To wond’ring mortals tell
The matchless grace divine-
That I, a child of hell,
Should in His image shine?
The Comforter has come!
