Total Obedience for Accessibility
The Presiding Bishop of Pleasant Place Churches Bishop Gideon Titi-Ofei has declared October 2017 as the Month of Accessibility and all Pleasantites are to observe it as such.
The scripture focus for the month is the Book of Psalms and has admonished church members to read five chapters everyday for thirty-one days by which time; the church would have completed the whole One Hundred and Fifty-Chapter Bible Book. Amazing plan. Isn’t it?
It is a Warfare Month and the church will be meeting everyday of the week for four consecutive weeks to pray-out their blessings for the month of October. In view of that, he has asked the congregation to seek for ‘Warfare and Prayer Strategies’ that will put members in the right stead and better approach to fight for their blessings.
The Bishop began the first Sunday of the month with an explosive message on ‘FIVE BLESSINGS THAT CAN UNLOCK DOORS IN YOUR LIFE’. It is a message he will be ministering throughout October 2017 but laid the foundation for the subsequent weeks, which he subtitled: ‘Blessings Of The Heavens Above’.
Taking his key text from Genesis 49:25, Bishop Titi-Ofei said, walking in the Blessings Of The Heavens Above is operating under Open Heavens and it is access into the unlimited blessings of God. It is the
blessings of the plenteous and bountiful harvest. The key signs of operating under closed heavens is when the believers finances and work is under constant attack which transcends into other areas such as marriage and family.
How does Open Heavens Manifest or how does the believer experience open heavens? The first key to open heavens Bishop said is ‘Total Obedience’ and supported his point with Deuteronomy 28:1& 2 saying, the believer must obey the scriptures in entirety. The scripture said ‘if thou shall hearken diligently unto the voice of the Lord thy God to observe and to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the Lord thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth: And these blessings shall come on thee and overtake thee, if thou shall hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy God’.
There is the listening and the doing aspect and so Bishop noted that the believer must fully obey God which is the act of complete faith in God to have access to their blessings. And this is where the theme for the month stands.
Bishop spoke about other signs of open heavens as blessing of the work of your hands, the Christian lending and not borrowing and obedience making the Christian to predict accurately as one of the benefits. Tithing is the other way by which the Christian will experience open heavens. Through tithing the Christian experiences divine protection, nations calling blessed, delightfulness and offering righteous prayers.
He will continue in the subsequent Sundays with the other four blessings that can unlock doors such as: Blessings Of The Earth Beneath, Blessings Of The Breast and Womb, Blessings Of The Fathers and the Blessings of Ancestors. Pleasantites are encouraged to keep in touch with these upcoming series to make their blessings completely full in October 2017
