Teens’ Open Heavens 4 December 2017 by Pastor Adeboye - Satan's Delicacy

Topic: Satan’s Delicacy [Monday 4, December 2017]

Memorise: “Lest there be any fornicator, or profane person, as Esau, who for one morsel of meat sold his birthright.”Hebrews 12:16

Read: Daniel 1:6-8

1 Now among these were of the children of Judah, Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah:

7 Unto whom the prince of the eunuchs gave names: for he gave unto Daniel the name of Belteshazzar; and to Hananiah, of Shadrach; and to Mishael, of Meshach; and to Azariah, of Abednego.

8 But Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself with the portion of the king’s meat, nor with the wine which he drank: therefore he requested of the prince of the eunuchs that he might not defile himself.

Bible In One Year: 2 Corinthians 1-4. Hymn: Sing Hymn 9: My Faith Has Found Resting A Place


The word ‘delicacy’ is commonly used to describe a food item that is considered highly desirable and usually scarce and expensive. Delicacies often have unusual characteristics, flavours and tastes, thereby attracting the interest of the high and mighty in the society. Meanwhile, the devil uses delicacies as a potent weapon to bring down his human targets, and it has proven to be an effective weapon over the years. He successfully used it against Adam, Eve, Esau, etc. However, godly people like Daniel know that certain delicacies have the potential to defile a child of God, especially when offered as bait from the devil. Christians are the brides of Christ, therefore, God expects us to maintain our purity. Psalms 119:1 says:

“Blessed are the undefiled in the way, who walk in the law of God.”

The undefiled resists temptation and is without sin like Jesus was (Hebrews 4:15). If you want to remain undefiled, you must watch against the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes and the pride of life (1 John 2:15-17). To be undefiled, you must remain in God’s will, keeping His commandments. God’s Word and instructions must be the laws governing your life. Are you undefiled?

Prayer Point: Lord Jesus, I refuse to fall for the devil’s trick, please help me to maintain my purity.

Sing Hymn 9: My Faith Has Found Resting A Place

My faith has found a resting place,
Not in device or creed;
I trust the ever living One,
His wounds for me shall plead.

I need no other argument,
I need no other plea,
It is enough that Jesus died,
And that He died for me.

Enough for me that Jesus saves,
This ends my fear and doubt;
A sinful soul I come to Him,
He’ll never cast me out.

My heart is leaning on the Word,
The living Word of God,
Salvation by my Savior’s Name,
Salvation through His blood.

My great Physician heals the sick,
The lost He came to save;
For me His precious blood He shed,
For me His life He gave.
