MFM Mountain Top Life Daily Devotional 29 October 2018 By Dr. D.K Olukoya – No Substitute for Holiness
TOPIC: No Substitute for Holiness (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Daily Devotional 29 October 2018)
FIRE SCRIPTURE: Leviticus 11:36-40
MEMORY VERSE: “Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord:” – Hebrews 12:14
Holiness is a requirement to inherit the kingdom of God. As believers, we must be holy because He that called us is holy. It is a pain in the heart of God that many Christians do not care about holiness anymore. Worse still are the hypocrites who act as if they are holy but are not. To be holy means to be righteous in Christ Jesus. It also means abstaining from sins and living your life absolutely for God and God alone.
The Holy One of Israel is God. He is so powerful and so majestic that He alone deserves to be held in awe. In essence, to be holy means being set apart for God. In the Old Testament, persons such as priests were set apart to serve as mediators at the altar where sinful humanity met a holy God. When God’s people are consecrated to Him, they are called “Holy”. Today, so many Christians are good at acting religious but very few are living a life of holiness. Many Christians are full of activities, very active in the church to an extent that they are nominated for recognition as the best worker, but some of these workers are just playing scripts, they are not recognised in the kingdom of God. They put up with excellent outward appearances that mask hearts that are filled with wickedness, and attitudes that are hypocritical in the church. But if we succeed in hiding our real self and deceive everyone else, we cannot deceive God. Beloved, religious activities without holiness amount to just mere physical exercise, a fruitless effort that will not yield any reward from God. No matter how religious a person is, if the heart embraces bitterness, anger, pride, deceit, envy, unforgiving spirit, lies and lust, such person cannot see or enter the kingdom of God.
This question now comes to you, “Where do you stand in this matter of holiness?” Is your outside very clean while your inside is dirty? Is your inside so filthy and full of unholy acts? It is time to be ready for God. Do you think everyday about Jesus’ coming? It will be a disaster to pass through the sufferings and oppressions of this world and end up in hell. Arise now and begin to ask God for mercy, tomorrow may be too late. Determine to live a holy life. God bless you
IF YOU LIVE AN UNHOLY LIFE, YOU CANNOT GO TO A HOLY GOD.
Receive the power to be holy.
1. Father, I thank You because I have You as my Holy God, in Jesus’ name.
2. Anything in my life that is making me look dirty before God, be purged by the blood of Jesus, in Jesus’ name.
3. Every contaminant and material of hell fire in my spirit, soul and body, die, in Jesus’ name.
4. Inherited property of hell fire in my life, I reject you tonight, die, in the name of Jesus.
5. Blood of Jesus, come upon my spirit, soul and body and purify my life for eternity, in Jesus’ name.
6. Every spiritual ladder, giving the devil and his cohorts access to my life, break to pieces, in Jesus’ name.
7. Power of sin ruling over my life, tonight is your end, die and let me go, in Jesus’ name.
