MFM Mountain Top Life Daily Devotional 15 March 2019 By Dr. D.K Olukoya – Christian Discipline (I)
TOPIC: Christian Discipline (I) (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Daily Devotional 15 March 2019)
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Deuteronomy 25-27; Mark 14:27-53
FIRE SCRIPTURE: 1 Corinthians 5:9-13
MEMORY VERSE: “Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners.” – 1 Corinthians 15:33
Lust for sex, drugs, looting of public funds and lack of contentment are serious vices. This life is full of many terrible sicknesses and diseases brought by sexual promiscuity, and this cuts across all strata of the society regardless of sex or social affiliation.
How can a university professor who is almost clocking 70 years of age be harassing a 23-year-old undergraduate for sex which will eventually lead to his unexpected dismissal and tarnish his image after thorough investigation? This is indiscipline.
The prevalence of many indescribable diseases, has been a source of concern to the disciplined mind. Those who commit crimes in all forms, confess to the use of drugs and alcohol after being caught. People take drugs and alcohol in order to get ‘high’, which eventually transforms them to criminals, not worthy to live in a decent society. Drugs and alcohol have so pervaded the society that no activity or festival comes up without seeing some of the participants misbehaving. There was a masquerade festival in Ibadan, Oyo State, some years back. There were two leaders of the said masquerade groups, entangled in a superiority contest. The leader of the group A was drenched in alcohol and drugs while the group B leader depended on his magical power.
When the contest proper started, Group A leader left his Group and faced Group B leader and a fight ensued. Group A leader brought out a waist band called Igbadi in Yoruba, and hit the Group B leader. He fell down and started chanting some incantations. All of a sudden, he was nowhere to be found, but just before anybody could ask question, he was seen standing behind Group A leader.
Both of them started displaying their magical prowess to the admiration of all. After a while, the Group A leader brought out a short axe with all manner of charms on it and hit the Group B leader on the neck. Suddenly, there was blood all over the place and the masquerade who perpetrated the act took to his heels. It was later discovered, that he was under drug influence. Stories like these abound everywhere. We also see in the Bible where a father was drugged by his daughters to have sexual affairs with them (Genesis 19:30-38). Christians need to be disciplined to stay clear of these vices. Beloved, be not drunk with but be filled with the Holy Spirit.
Through prayer, wage war against every act of indiscipline and let your life be pleasing to God.
BAD COMPANY ABORTS PROMISING DESTINY.
God will be glorified in my life.
- I reject and cancel every plot of fraud and deceit against me. It shall not stand, in the name of Jesus.
- Every fetish preparation against me and my family, explode by fire now, in the name of Jesus.
- I will hold on to my God until my testimony comes, in the name of Jesus.
- Had I known, will not be my last statement, in the name of Jesus.
- Every demonic plan to make me derail from Your ways, Lord, destroy it, in the name of Jesus.
- I cancel every agenda that is not of God against my life and destiny, in the name of Jesus.
- Father Lord, make me and my family useful tools in Your hand, in the name of Jesus.
