BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Psalms 136, Psalms 137, Hebrews 1, Hebrews 2

FIRE SCRIPTURE: 1 Corinthians 6:15-20 (KJV)

15 Know ye not that your bodies are the members of Christ? shall I then take the members of Christ, and make them the members of an harlot? God forbid.

16 What? know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? for two, saith he, shall be one flesh.

17 But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit.

18 Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body.

19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?

20 For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.

MFM Devotional For Today 2023 MESSAGE:

God, in Genesis chapter 2, having formed man out of the dust of the ground, breathed upon him the Breath of life, which made him a living soul. Note here that the making of man is entirely a divine initiative. God, all by Himself, the Potter who He is, carefully and perfectly moulded this clay to make man. This vessel called body was not enough to be called man. It was just the container. God needed to breathe upon it, and this breath made man a living soul. Every man is in three parts: the body, soul and the spirit. The three are important to God and shouldn’t be tampered with. The body is the carrier of the soul and spirit. 3John verse 2 tells us that God wants us to prosper in our body, soul and spirit. This is all round wellness and prosperity.

Just as our wellness is important, the same goes for the purity of the body, soul and spirit. Can one be well in a polluted and defiled body? No! Can we continue in sin and say grace should abound? No! To enjoy this total wellness includes the sanctity of the three. Our body is the temple of God, where His Spirit resides. The Bible tells us in the New Testament that God no longer lives in tabernacles. As He has promised in the book of Ezekiel, He has decided to live within us and make our hearts His dwelling place. Do you now see why the human body, especially for a Christian, should be kept holy and pure, away from every filthiness, so that God can make it His tabernacle? God cannot behold iniquity. He abhors every detestable thing. A polluted vessel, a filthy body are all abomination to Him. The Holy Spirit would depart from such.

Learn from the story of Samson. So powerful, yet lusted after a Philistine woman who eventually sold him to his enemies. Although he cried to God in repentance, killed more at his death than in his lifetime, yet he died with his enemies. They mocked and ridiculed him with his eyes gorged out, all because he failed to honour God with his body. He defiled the sanctuary of God to satisfy his lust. He wanted to move in God’s power as usual, but did not know that the Spirit of God had left him. If you continue to engage in these filthy practices, you will experience unanswered prayers, closed heaven, and you will become an enemy of God.

Today’s memory verse is expressly clear about the divine sanction for anyone that defiles God’s temple: God will destroy him!

I am sure you don’t want to be destroyed. In case you are still in that kind of business where your body cannot be kept for God as a living sacrifice, I beg you to repent today and seek God’s face for forgiveness and mercy. He will clean you up and make peace with you. He will dwell in you and you in Him. You will become a living sanctuary for God. However, the decision is yours! God is ready if you are too.

PRAYER POINTS:

MORNING

  1. Polluter of destiny, my life is not your candidate, jump out and die. in the name of Jesus.
  2. Blood of Jesus, purge me and make me clean in the name of Jesus.
  3. Spirit of lustful desires in my life, die, in the name of Jesus.

EVENING

  1. Agent of iniquity, my body is not your dwelling place, jump out, die, in the name of Jesus.
  2. O God, arise and evacuate agents of defilement in my body with Your fire, in the name of Jesus.
  3. Fire of God, purify my life, in the name of Jesus.
