MFM Mountain Top Life Daily Devotional 21 April 2019 By Dr. D.K Olukoya – Be Ye Holy
TOPIC: Be Ye Holy (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Daily Devotional 21 April 2019)
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: 2 Samuel 12-13; Luke 16
FIRE SCRIPTURE: 1 Peter 1:14-25
MEMORY VERSE: “Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless.” – 2 Peter 3:14
God’s foremost attribute is holiness. He is holier than the holiest. The spirit beings in heaven attest to this. Revelation 4:8 reveals the cry of the heavenly beings, “And the four beasts has each of them six wings about him; and they were full of eyes within: and they rest not day and night, saying, Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come.” The Bible enjoins us as believers to be holy as the Lord our God is holy. However, it is unfortunate that many believers do not pass the holiness test nowadays.
To be holy means to be sanctified and set apart for God. It means to be consecrated and to be without contamination or defilement. It also means to be without blemish, spot or wrinkle. The key to being holy is to be unquestioningly, promptly and completely obedient to God.
God’s commandment that you be holy as He is holy is of great importance to all believers. If you obey the commandment and live a holy life, your first gain is that you will have and enjoy the abiding presence of God, indwelling presence of God and the empowering presence of God. If God be for you, who can be against you? All Bible characters that did exploits for God, fulfilled their destinies and ended well had one thing in common: God was with them. Secondly, holiness puts a permanent hedge of fire around you and leaves no doorway for the enemy and his arrows to get to you or harm you.
Holiness will qualify you for divine election for great assignment on earth. Holiness will attract heaven’s angels and divine help to you whenever you need them. Holiness will give you victory in all battles and protect and preserve you in times of danger.
Holiness will also give you access to divine secrets and make you a global solution provider. It was holiness that made Daniel decode and interpret the king’s dream. Holiness put Daniel and his three Hebrew brothers in the class of God in Babylon. The unbelievers attested that the spirit of God was with them. The king proclaimed that only the God of these Hebrews should be worshipped.
Had Daniel, Meshack, Shadrach and Abednego eaten the king’s sumptuous delicacies, they would have defile themselves and would have become blind bats like the magicians and wise men of Babylon. Joseph refused the adulterous advances of Potiphar’s wife. He chose to be holy and it paid off. The presence and power of God was so much with him that he gave an accurate interpretation of Potiphar’s dream and proffered solution to a mind-boggling economic problem.
Pharoah acknowledged that God was with Joseph and promoted him to be prime minister. Holiness made all these possible. The Spirit of the Living God does not dwell in a dirty and unclean vessel. The reason many young people do not have ground-breaking ideas and inventions nowadays is not far-fetched: they are not holy. God’s Spirit will depart from any life that is sexually loose, worldly, carnal and defiled. Holiness within and without is not negotiable for anyone who want to go succeed in the kingdom race, assignment and make heaven. Be ye holy!
HOLINESS WITHIN AND WITHOUT IS A MUST FOR A SUCCESSFUL LIFE IN CHRIST.
Your garment of holiness shall not be stained by sin.
