TOPIC: Clouds Without Rain (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Daily Devotional 12 May 2020)
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Isaiah 64-66
FIRE SCRIPTURE: Jude 1:4-12 (KJV)
4 For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.
5 I will therefore put you in remembrance, though ye once knew this, how that the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed them that believed not.
6 And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.
7 Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.
8 Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities.
9 Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee.
10 But these speak evil of those things which they know not: but what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves.
11 Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core.
12 These are spots in your feasts of charity, when they feast with you, feeding themselves without fear: clouds they are without water, carried about of winds; trees whose fruit withereth, without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots;
MEMORY VERSE: “Then the LORD rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the LORD out of heaven;” – Genesis 19:24
If you avoid the divine pathway and go for shortcuts, you may be shocked that such shortcuts may end up cutting you short.
PRAISE WORSHIP: Take a worship song as led by the Holy Spirit
PROPHETIC WORD FOR TODAY:
EVERY POWER THAT IS SAYING NO TO YOUR UNCOMMON LIST, EVERY POWER THAT IS SAYING NO TO YOUR CELEBRATION AND DECORATION, POWER THAT IS SAYING NO TO YOUR REWRITING YOUR FAMILY ISSUES, LET THOSE POWERS DIE COMPLETELY IN THE NAME OF JESUS.
There is a lot of adulteration in today’s religious atmosphere. There is so much noise but little action.
A sister who was one of our house fellowship members had a dream in which some short demons came to confront her. She said, “I bind all of you! in the name of Jesus.” The demons started to laugh and at the end said, “Everybody is binding and you too are binding, ah! ahh!! ahhh!!!” When she woke up, she was livid with anger and went on dry fast and by the time these demons came again, she was able to deal with them. It was by such holy provocation that she succeeded in dealing with the small-sized demons.
The Lord showed me a vision of a cloud of abundance of good rain about to fall on many of God’s people. Although the clouds were very dark and were supposed to have brought rain, yet there was no rainfall. The enemy had removed the water from the cloud. The people actually saw the heavy cloud and when they expected the rain to fall, it cleared away suddenly. Beloved, there is a restlessness in God’s people all over the world now. It appears as if all the children of God all over the world are experiencing one form of frustration or the other. The big truth is that, before God can give us more than what we have now, we have to show that we are dissatisfied with the state we are.
I went to greet an acquaintance of mine who was beating his son to almost a state of coma, because the boy came home with a poor result. The daddy said, “This is a poor result. Look at so, so and so’s son. Look at our neighbour’s son. They all did better; but you did very poorly.” The boy said, “Must I match up to the performance of other boys?” So, the boy was satisfied with his poor position. Beloved, God’s people should not get used to bondage. The Bible identifies filthy dreamers. It also highlights the situation of people who can be classified as clouds without rain. The bottom line is that God shall deal with such people today, if they can show dissatisfaction at the terribly bad state in which they are.
- All evil rivers mocking my efforts, dry up, in the name of Jesus.
- I set ablaze, every satanic record about my life, in the name of Jesus.
- Every house of shame constructed against me, scatter, in the name of Jesus.
- Oh God arise and send Your angels to go and perfect all that concerns my life, in the name of Jesus.
- Every obstacle to my prayers, clear away, in the name of Jesus.
- Every arrow of discouragement at the edge of breakthroughs, die, in the name of Jesus.
- Let my battles expire and let my tears cease, in the name of Jesus.
