Open Heaven 28 January 2020 Memorise: But king Solomon loved many strange women, together with the daughter of Pharaoh, women of the Moabites, Ammonites, Edomites, Zidonians, and Hittites: 1st Kings 11:1
Read: 1st Kings 11:1-11 Open Heaven 28 January 2020
1 But king Solomon loved many strange women, together with the daughter of Pharaoh, women of the Moabites, Ammonites, Edomites, Zidonians, and Hittites:
2 Of the nations concerning which the Lord said unto the children of Israel, Ye shall not go in to them, neither shall they come in unto you: for surely they will turn away your heart after their gods: Solomon clave unto these in love.
3 And he had seven hundred wives, princesses, and three hundred concubines: and his wives turned away his heart.
4 For it came to pass, when Solomon was old, that his wives turned away his heart after other gods: and his heart was not perfect with the Lord his God, as was the heart of David his father.
5 For Solomon went after Ashtoreth the goddess of the Zidonians, and after Milcom the abomination of the Ammonites.
6 And Solomon did evil in the sight of the Lord, and went not fully after the Lord, as did David his father.
7 Then did Solomon build an high place for Chemosh, the abomination of Moab, in the hill that is before Jerusalem, and for Molech, the abomination of the children of Ammon.
8 And likewise did he for all his strange wives, which burnt incense and sacrificed unto their gods.
9 And the Lord was angry with Solomon, because his heart was turned from the Lord God of Israel, which had appeared unto him twice,
10 And had commanded him concerning this thing, that he should not go after other gods: but he kept not that which the Lord commanded.
11 Wherefore the Lord said unto Solomon, Forasmuch as this is done of thee, and thou hast not kept my covenant and my statutes, which I have commanded thee, I will surely rend the kingdom from thee, and will give it to thy servant.

We studied this topic in the Teenagers’ Open Heaven last
year and I thought to discuss it with you this year because it is also relevant
to many adults. A crush is a brief but intense infatuation for someone.
To the unmarried, I want to tell you that a crush is likely to crush you if you base your decision concerning whom to marry solely on your emotions. It is often said that love is blind and this is very true. Samson had a crush on Delilah (Judges 16:4-18).
Oh, I wish he had crushed the crush so that he could see
Delilah’s true character before he fell into her trap. This is someone who sold
him into captivity and ultimately his untimely death. If there is someone that
you admire, before you jump into a relationship with the fellow, pray first.
Study the fellow’s behaviour. After you hear from God yourself and get
confirmations (2nd Corinthians 13:1), then you can involve your Pastor and

If you are not yet ready for marriage, then a crush is an
agenda of the devil to distract you from your goals and to crush your destiny.
You had better crush that crush before it crushes you. 1st Corinthians 6:19
“What? Know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you….?”
The devil knows that any sexual sin is a sin against your
body – the temple of God and once it is committed, that body ceases to be God’s
temple, so he can now touch and destroy it. Amnon – David’s heir apparent had a
crush on his half-sister Tamar and instead of crushing it, he let it grow. He
discussed it with the wrong person who gave him ungodly counsel that he acted
on (2nd Samuel 13). He paid with his life and caused a deep rift in his family…
all that crush grow and your entire life to gain if you crush it now.
Key Point – Open Heaven 28 January 2020
Be wise and make the right decision; crush that crush now!
