MFM Mountain Top Life Daily Devotional 16 January 2019 By Dr. D.K Olukoya – Are You Real? (II)
TOPIC: Are You Real? (II) (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Daily Devotional 16 January 2019)
FIRE SCRIPTURE: John 13: 18-30
Bible In One Year: Genesis 41-42; Matthew 11
MEMORY VERSE: “For I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done to you.” – John 13:15
Jesus was real and true. His words were His bond and He did not have any character disorder. He stood for love, care and compassion. The focal point of His ministry was to save souls, heal the sick and deliver the oppressed. Luke 4:18 says, “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised.” Judas was not interested in all of these. He was not real. Though among them, he wasn’t committed to the same ideal.
In John 17:12, Jesus said to the Father, “While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled”.
Perhaps, you are as unfaithful as Judas was in your relationship with the Master today. You betray Him by committing sin and nailing Him on the Cross afresh daily. It is high time you confessed your sins, amended your ways and turned to the Lord. Perhaps, you sleep on the same bed with your spouse who sees you as the best spouse in the world, but you know you are not real. Your kisses, hugs as well as the complimentary names you call your spouse are lies from the pit of hell. If your spouse does not know, God does and will make you pay dearly for your betrayal of trust, deceit and unfaithfulness. Repent today. Tomorrow may be too late!
Many take professional oaths such as the Hippocratic oath medical practitioners take before they begin to practise their noble profession. Some of such practitioners still violate the oath and act unethically every day. By so doing, they maim and destroy lives and bring their profession to shame. While some have been caught and penalised, many have not. They are not real. Similarly, many politicians take oaths of office and still do not deliver their campaign and electoral promises. Beloved, the organisation you work for has core values or organisational culture. If you constantly act contrary to the core values or culture, you are not an ambassador of the organisation. My question to you today is: Are you real? Are you a genuine and good ambassador of Jesus Christ our Royal Master, of your family, your organisation and your country? If your answer to this soul-searching question is not in the affirmative, I implore you to repent and turn a new leaf today.
YOU SHOULD NEVER HAVE TO THINK TWICE ABOUT WHO YOUR TRUE FRIENDS ARE. IF YOU DO, THEY AREN’T TRUE.
The power that disgraced Judas will expose and disgrace the Judas in your circle and the Jonah in your boat.
- Father, take lies and deception far from me, in the name of Jesus.
- Holy Spirit, help and enable me to be Your friend, in the name of Jesus.
- The Spirit that reigns and rules in the lives of children of disobedience, come out of my life now, in the name of Jesus.
- I reject the anointing of Judas, in the name of Jesus.
- I will not miss or waste my divine opportunities, in the name of Jesus.
- Father, teach and guide me to take the right decisions in life, in the name of Jesus.
- My life and ministry will end well, in the name of Jesus.
