TEXT – 1 KINGS CHAPTER 17
1 And Elijah the Tishbite, who was of the inhabitants of Gilead, said unto Ahab, As the Lord God of Israel liveth, before whom I stand, there shall not be dew nor rain these years, but according to my word.
The worst attack on an enemy is close heavens over the fellow.
In Amos 4:7-8, God said when He wants to show His anger, He will allow rain to fall on a city and keep the other city dry. The city that got the rain prosper while the city without the rain will wither. The withered city will go to the other city for water to drink.
All the forces of darkness that may be waging wars against any of you my children, right now, the heavens will be shut over them.
You need open heavens to go higher.
If heaven is shut, you will not be able to go higher and you will begin to go wither.
WHEN THE HEAVENS ARE OPENED FOR SOMEONE, THE FELLOW COULD RECEIVE:
Heavens will open and the Almighty God Himself will call you mighty man/woman and that is what you will become.
In Luke 5:1-11, Jesus called Peter fisher of men when he had an encounter with Jesus.
In Acts 2:1-4, Heaven opened unto Peter.
In Acts 5:12-16, From the ministry of a man who was a failed fisherman, multitudes came into the kingdom of God.
Today, the heavens will open for you and whatever you were born to become will become activated today.
May I decree to someone who has been destined to die soon, in the mighty name of Jesus Christ, your appointment with death is canceled.
Ezekiel 1 :1 Now it came to pass in the thirtieth year, in the fourth month, in the fifth day of the month, as I was among the captives by the river of Chebar, that the heavens were opened, and I saw visions of God.
How can you go higher and higher if you have no vision and you don’t know where you are going. You can’t go higher if you don’t know where the higher you are talking about is.
Proverbs 29:18 Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.
HOW DO I GET THE HEAVES TO OPEN FOR ME?
WHAT CAN I DO TO AVOID THE HEAVENS FROM BEING CLOSED OVER ME?
1 Samuel 15.
In 1 Samuel 28:3-25, God closed the heavens over king Saul.
The heavens will never close over you.
HOW TO OPEN CLOSED HEAVEN.
2 Chronicles chapter 7
