OPEN HEAVEN 8 OCTOBER 2020 MESSAGE
The only reason you and I are still alive today is God’s mercy. Divine mercy is that important (Lamentations 3:22).
We can rejoice however, that God is very rich in mercy and as a matter of fact, He is the Father of mercies.
He gives His mercy to us as a gift every morning (Lamentations 3:22-23), (2 Corinthians 1:3).
His mercy guides you in your journey through life.
In His mercy, you meet certain people who help you fulfil destiny; you also avoid certain people or actions that might lead you astray.
It is by this same mercy I joined the RCCG. I had wanted to travel abroad on a Commonwealth scholarship.
After passing the exams, we were tested on dining etiquette.
As a boy bred in the village, I dipped the bread we were served into the stew and stuffed it in my mouth.
That was the end. I stayed in Nigeria and became a lecturer at the University of Lagos. It was while I was there that I was introduced to the RCCG. It was pure mercy. Exodus 15:13 says:
“Thou in thy mercy hast led forth the people which thou hast redeemed: thou hast guided them in thy strength unto thy holy habitation.”
God does not need permission from anyone to show you mercy. Romans 9:15 says:
“For he saith to Moses, I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion.”
While others may struggle, He can promote you effortlessly. If you ever want to get results, His mercy is the most essential factor.
“But the LORD was with Joseph, and shewed him mercy, and gave him favour in the sight of the keeper of the prison.” – Genesis 39:21
Joseph enjoyed favour even in the prison because of God’s mercy. If you need anyone to favour you, seek God’s mercy first.
He will grant you favour before them in the mighty name of Jesus.

OPEN HEAVEN 8 OCTOBER 2020 HYMN
ROCK OF AGES, CLEFT FOR ME
1. Rock of Ages, cleft for me,
Let me hide myself in Thee!
Let the water and the blood,
From Thy riven side which flowed,
Be of sin the double cure;
Cleanse me from its guilt and power.
2. Not the labours of my hands,
Can fulfill Thy law’s demands;
Could my zeal no respite know,
Could my tears for ever flow,
All for sin could not atone,
Thou must save and Thou alone.
3. Nothing in my hand I bring,
Simply to Thy cross I cling
Naked, come to Thee for dress,
Helpless, look to Thee for grace,
Foul, I to the fountain fly
Wash me, Saviour, or I die.
4. While I draw this fleeting breath,
When my eyelids close in death,
When I soar to worlds unknown,
See Thee on Thy judgement throne,
Rock of Ages, cleft for me,
Let me hide myself in Thee.
