TOPIC: Deal With Sin Before It Deals With You (I) (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Devotional 17 May 2022)
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Ruth 3, Ruth 4, John 9:35-41, John 10:1-21, Psalm 62:1-12
FIRE SCRIPTURE: Acts 5:1-11 (KJV)
5 But a certain man named Ananias, with Sapphira his wife, sold a possession,
2 And kept back part of the price, his wife also being privy to it, and brought a certain part, and laid it at the apostles’ feet.
3 But Peter said, Ananias, why hath Satan filled thine heart to lie to the Holy Ghost, and to keep back part of the price of the land?
4 Whiles it remained, was it not thine own? and after it was sold, was it not in thine own power? why hast thou conceived this thing in thine heart? thou hast not lied unto men, but unto God.
5 And Ananias hearing these words fell down, and gave up the ghost: and great fear came on all them that heard these things.
6 And the young men arose, wound him up, and carried him out, and buried him.
7 And it was about the space of three hours after, when his wife, not knowing what was done, came in.
8 And Peter answered unto her, Tell me whether ye sold the land for so much? And she said, Yea, for so much.
9 Then Peter said unto her, How is it that ye have agreed together to tempt the Spirit of the Lord? behold, the feet of them which have buried thy husband are at the door, and shall carry thee out.
10 Then fell she down straightway at his feet, and yielded up the ghost: and the young men came in, and found her dead, and, carrying her forth, buried her by her husband.
11 And great fear came upon all the church, and upon as many as heard these things.

MFM Devotional For Today MESSAGE:
Sin has mysterious powers. It has single-handedly affected the destiny of man negatively more than any other force. It is the enemy’s most trusted and most tested weapon of destruction. Nothing has the power to separate man from God like sin. Nothing has broken the fellowship between divinity and man like sin. Sin is a hired killer, an experienced and age-long assassin. It targets are the precious souls of men, glorious destinies and everything designed to bring glory to God.
Sin has siblings: iniquity and transgression. They are triplets. Sin has terrible damaging effects. It has a deleting power. To delete is to remove from the face of something by erasing, blotting out or wiping off, leaving no trace that the thing ever existed. Sin deleted Adam and Eve because they died spiritually. Sin deleted King Saul and took the kingdom from him. Sin deleted Samson and made him to die with his enemies. Sin deleted the couple, Ananias and Saphira. Sin also deleted families like Korah’s, Dathan’s and Abiram’s as well as Achan’s. Sin also deletes people’s joy, peace, blessing and good records. I pray that sin will not delete you and your household, in the name of Jesus.
Second, sin has subtracting power. The moment Adam and Eve sinned, the fellowship and intimacy they enjoyed with God stopped, and they lost paradise. Sin subtracted the kingdom from Saul and left him empty. Sin robbed Samson of his supernatural strength and anointing. The enemy has used sin more than anything else to steal people’s glorious destinies, blessings, virtues, marriages, ministries, longevity, joy, peace, progress, etc. I pray you will not fall victim to satan and sin, in the name of Jesus.
Beloved, Jesus has defeated sin and its power for you. He shed His blood and died to give you dominion over sin. The Bible says that sin will not have power over you. It is your responsibility to enforce your God-given dominion over sin. Some try to conquer sin in their power or effort. They often fail. You must rely on the Holy Spirit to overcome sin. You must exercise genuine faith in the finished and substitutionary work of Jesus at Calvary. You must decide to live as a new creature truly.
- Every grip of sin over my life, die by the power in the blood of Jesus, in the name of Jesus.
- Love for sin in my life, die now, in the name of Jesus.
- O Lord, crucify me on Your altar today, in the name of Jesus.
- Power of sin assigned to send me to hell, lose your hold and die, in the name of Jesus.
- Grace to live a sinless life, overshadow me now, in the name of Jesus.
- O God, arise and deliver me from foundational iniquity, in the name of Jesus.
- Blood of Jesus, purify me and make me holy, in the name of Jesus.
