MFM Mountain Top Life Devotional 19 October 2019 By Dr. D.K Olukoya – They That Know Their God
TOPIC: They That Know Their God
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Isaiah 56-58; 2 Thessalonians 2
FIRE SCRIPTURE: 1 Kings 18:22-40
MEMORY VERSE: “No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.” – Matthew 6:24
MESSAGE: The story of a man called Elijah in the Bible revealed to us a man that was consumed with passion to stand for the truth always. Verse 22 of our Fire Scripture for today reads, “Then said Elijah unto the people, I, even I only, remain a prophet of the LORD; but Baal’s prophets are four hundred and fifty men.” However, despite this and the great atrocity committed by the children of Israel, Elijah challenged the people to make a definitive choice between following God or following Baal. Just as we Christians behave nowadays, Israel believed they could worship God and deities at the same time. Jesus also warned against this in Matthew 6:24.
Beloved, God is looking for men and women who will stand by the truth. The honest question you must ask yourself today is this: can God depend on me? Elijah stood against the 450 prophets of Baal. Prophet Micaiah spoke the mind of God to Ahab, despite the assurance earlier given by 400 prophets in 1 Kings 22:28. As a pillar and ambassador of truth, prophet Micaiah said, “If thou return at all in peace the Lord hath not spoken by me. And he said; hearken O people, every one of you.”
So many were once confronted with situations where they had to choose between life and death, denying or upholding their faith, deny Jesus and live or proclaim Him as your Lord and die, especially in the northern part of Nigeria. Many compromised while some stood their ground. If it were you, what would you have done? Remember Jesus said if you deny me on earth, I will do the same to you in heaven. You have a choice to make today.

Beloved, the imminent second coming of Jesus is around the corner. We make decisions and choices everyday. I advise you not to gamble with your life and destiny. Don’t play game with God as many are doing. Live for Jesus day after day. Live for Him, come what may. Let the Holy Spirit always guide you in the choices you make. Obey Him always and in all things. It is well with you.
THE MORE YOU GET CLOSE TO GOD THROUGH HIS WORD, THE CLOSER YOU ARE TO YOUR PROMISED LAND.
Idol of your father’s house that want to take the place of God in your life, shall die by fire.*
1 Powers assigned to blindfold me and prevent me from seeing God as my God, die, in the name of Jesus.
2 Every power assigned to seal my heart to prevent me from receiving from God, die, in the name of Jesus.
3 Powers assigned to block my ears in order not to hear from God, you must die today, in the name of Jesus.
4 Every power assigned to direct my footsteps out of God’s vineyard and make me worship idol, die, in the name of Jesus.
5 I refuse to deny God, no matter what I am passing through, in the name of Jesus.
6 Satanic diversion on my way to heaven, I pull you down by fire, in the name of Jesus.
7 I shall make heaven at last, in the name of Jesus.
