TOPIC: Laodicea: The Lukewarm Church (I) (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Devotional 1 December 2021)

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: 2 Corinthians 10-13

FIRE SCRIPTURE: Revelation 3:14-22

14 And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;

15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.

16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.

17 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:

18 I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.

19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.

20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.

21 To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.

22 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

MEMORY VERSE: “As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.” – Revelation 3:19

When you overcome your lukewarmness, you are on the way to spiritual revival.

PRAISE WORSHIP: Take a worship song as led by the Holy Spirit


Mountain Top Life MESSAGE:

The last letter to the seven churches in Asia Minor was written to the Laodecia Church. The letter, as can be seen in our Fire Scripture, opens with Jesus calling Himself “the Amen, the faithful and true witness”. Indeed, He is the God of truth who is perfectly trustworthy, faithful and able to guarantee His word. As the Amen, Jesus guarantees the truth of God’s promises that are still available to us today.

In verses 15 and 16, Jesus used the expression, “lukewarm, neither cold nor hot”, to describe the spiritual state of the church in Laodecia. The city of Laodecia was a wealthy centre of business and trade. The atmosphere of prosperity had led to spiritual laziness and nonchalance in the church. They were no longer “hot” enough spiritually to respond to or recognise the Holy Spirit’s guidance, and they were not quite “cold” enough to realise their need to repent and return to a life of dependence on God.

Beloved, this is a true picture of some churches and some individuals today. When they newly started, they were fervent and very “hot”. They were even dreaded by the kingdom of darkness because they did a lot of spiritual damage to their kingdom. But as soon as breakthroughs and blessings began to come, they became absent and unavailable or inconsistent in their fellowship or church service. They began to give one excuse or the other; their position or whatever they were doing for God began to suffer. They also became negligent about personal commitments. They no longer see anything bad in missing church programmes. God is calling on such people to repent from their lukewarmness or He will spew them out of His mouth.

Those who think they are rich and do not need God are the most miserable because if you go deep down into their lives, you will discover that they need God more than any other person. Beloved, how is your walk with God? Are you hot or lukewarm? God wants you to be on fire for Him everyday.



  1. Every spiritual blockage in my spiritual ears, clear away, in the name of Jesus.
  2. Any power contesting my time with God, die, in the name of Jesus.
  3. Holy Spirit, guide me always into all truth, in the name of Jesus.


  1. My Father, help me to be a true witness of Your ways, in the name of Jesus.
  2. Search me, O God, and lead me in Your way, in the name of Jesus.
  3. My Father, arise and deepen my faith, in the name of Jesus.
  4. Spirit of carelessness in the things of God, get out of my life, in the name of Jesus.
