FIRE SCRIPTURE: Matthew 23:29-35 (KJV)
29 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because ye build the tombs of the prophets, and garnish the sepulchres of the righteous,
30 And say, If we had been in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partakers with them in the blood of the prophets.
31 Wherefore ye be witnesses unto yourselves, that ye are the children of them which killed the prophets.
32 Fill ye up then the measure of your fathers.
33 Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?
34 Wherefore, behold, I send unto you prophets, and wise men, and scribes: and some of them ye shall kill and crucify; and some of them shall ye scourge in your synagogues, and persecute them from city to city:
35 That upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of Zacharias son of Barachias, whom ye slew between the temple and the altar.

MFM Devotional For Today MESSAGE:
The word “sepulchre” means a grave or tomb, a place where the dead is buried. In ancient times, honouring the dead involved using a whitewash on the tomb to give it a face-lift while inside it contained bones and rotteness. It is this description that the Lord Jesus Christ employed in dismissing the Pharisees and the Scribes for their treacherous nature.
A whited sepulchre is an evil person who feigns goodness, a hypocrite or a person who is inwardly evil and deadly but outwardly professes to be virtuous. Christ reprimanded the leaders of the Jews for their hypocrisy and presented concrete proofs.
As a sincere believer in God, your ways should be plain and your conscience void of offence towards God and men. It should not be a case of being a saint in church and being a sinner outside the church. The mark of true Christianity is that you do not have a different lifestyle in public and another one in private. Your confession should be your practice both publicly and privately.
The greatest challenge Jesus had with the Pharisees was the issue of their mindset. They appeared to have good intentions, but it was all a lie. Jesus knew the state of their hearts. The human heart is like a computer. Whatever you feed it with will determine what comes out of it. The heart of a man is what shapes his destiny. The reason why some people come to church and are still not blessed is the state of their hearts. Their hypocritical hearts are hardened, and so they cannot receive anything from God. If the Pharisees had allowed the message of Jesus Christ to penetrate their hearts, their perception would have been different. If you allow God to work on your heart, your breakthrough will be immeasurable. Your heart is a reflection of who you are.
Examine your life and evaluate the usefulness in what you are doing. If you notice any act of hypocrisy in your life, repent and turn a new leaf.

- Idols of iniquity in my heart, break, in the name of Jesus.
