TOPIC: The Dance Of Hypocrites (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Daily Devotional 10 August 2020)
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Job 14-16
FIRE SCRIPTURE: Luke 11:24-54 (KJV)
24 When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest; and finding none, he saith, I will return unto my house whence I came out.
25 And when he cometh, he findeth it swept and garnished.
26 Then goeth he, and taketh to him seven other spirits more wicked than himself; and they enter in, and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first.
27 And it came to pass, as he spake these things, a certain woman of the company lifted up her voice, and said unto him, Blessed is the womb that bare thee, and the paps which thou hast sucked.
28 But he said, Yea rather, blessed are they that hear the word of God, and keep it.
29 And when the people were gathered thick together, he began to say, This is an evil generation: they seek a sign; and there shall no sign be given it, but the sign of Jonas the prophet.
30 For as Jonas was a sign unto the Ninevites, so shall also the Son of man be to this generation.
31 The queen of the south shall rise up in the judgment with the men of this generation, and condemn them: for she came from the utmost parts of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and, behold, a greater than Solomon is here.
32 The men of Nineve shall rise up in the judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: for they repented at the preaching of Jonas; and, behold, a greater than Jonas is here.
33 No man, when he hath lighted a candle, putteth it in a secret place, neither under a bushel, but on a candlestick, that they which come in may see the light.
34 The light of the body is the eye: therefore when thine eye is single, thy whole body also is full of light; but when thine eye is evil, thy body also is full of darkness.
35 Take heed therefore that the light which is in thee be not darkness.
36 If thy whole body therefore be full of light, having no part dark, the whole shall be full of light, as when the bright shining of a candle doth give thee light.
37 And as he spake, a certain Pharisee besought him to dine with him: and he went in, and sat down to meat.
38 And when the Pharisee saw it, he marvelled that he had not first washed before dinner.
39 And the Lord said unto him, Now do ye Pharisees make clean the outside of the cup and the platter; but your inward part is full of ravening and wickedness.
40 Ye fools, did not he that made that which is without make that which is within also?
41 But rather give alms of such things as ye have; and, behold, all things are clean unto you.
42 But woe unto you, Pharisees! for ye tithe mint and rue and all manner of herbs, and pass over judgment and the love of God: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone.
43 Woe unto you, Pharisees! for ye love the uppermost seats in the synagogues, and greetings in the markets.
44 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are as graves which appear not, and the men that walk over them are not aware of them.
45 Then answered one of the lawyers, and said unto him, Master, thus saying thou reproachest us also.
46 And he said, Woe unto you also, ye lawyers! for ye lade men with burdens grievous to be borne, and ye yourselves touch not the burdens with one of your fingers.
47 Woe unto you! for ye build the sepulchres of the prophets, and your fathers killed them.
48 Truly ye bear witness that ye allow the deeds of your fathers: for they indeed killed them, and ye build their sepulchres.
49 Therefore also said the wisdom of God, I will send them prophets and apostles, and some of them they shall slay and persecute:
50 That the blood of all the prophets, which was shed from the foundation of the world, may be required of this generation;
51 From the blood of Abel unto the blood of Zacharias, which perished between the altar and the temple: verily I say unto you, It shall be required of this generation.
52 Woe unto you, lawyers! for ye have taken away the key of knowledge: ye entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering in ye hindered.
53 And as he said these things unto them, the scribes and the Pharisees began to urge him vehemently, and to provoke him to speak of many things:
54 Laying wait for him, and seeking to catch something out of his mouth, that they might accuse him.
MEMORY VERSE: “For there is no faithfulness in their mouth; their inward part is very wickedness; their throat is an open sepulchre; they flatter with their tongue.” – Psalms 5:9
When you discover yourself, you have discovered a world of limitless possibilities.
PRAISE WORSHIP: Take a worship song as led by the Holy Spirit
PROPHETIC WORD FOR TODAY:
YOU SHALL NOT DIE BUT LIVE TO DECLARE THE WORKS OF GOD.
The Law of sowing and reaping is a powerful law. If you decide to dance to your own music, you will not be able to blame anyone. What the Lord wants to tell you today is that you must not be part of the dance of hypocrites.

A young man wrote a letter to me, “Dear Sir, though I am not a member of your church, I would like to learn deliverance in your church. Before you train me, I want to go through deliverance.” While going through the deliverance programme, he did not pray. He was busy documenting the deliverance process; and he never came back for the training. Within a short time, he had established a commercial deliverance centre and he was charging the equivalent of 1 dollar 50 cents per candidate. People flocked into his commercial deliverance centre in hundreds. People were ready to pay even $200 for deliverance than to go and pay half a million for surgery. He started making progress and his wife began to change her wardrobe.
One day, a beautiful lady came to him for deliverance and the fake deliverance minister laid hands on her. All of a sudden, the lady looked at him and said, “Stop what you are doing! What kind of insult is this! How can you lay your hands on the head of the wife of Lucifer?” When he heard such a frightening statement, he was scared stiff. He knew that he was in trouble. He said, “Sister, you can have your $200 and let me direct you to another place, which is a deliverance ministry, located near the University of Lagos. There you will receive genuine help.” The lady said “No, I am going nowhere, you are already in trouble.” That was how he lost the use of his right hand and leg. By the time they brought him to me, he could not use any of his limbs. So, we started praying and God said, “Son, do not waste your time, he has already been sacrificed.” Beloved, he has since been buried.
Beware of hypocrisy. Fake practices will lead you astray.
- Let every satanic manipulating altar and their attending priests scatter, in the name of Jesus.
- Every satanic yoke in my life, break, in the name of Jesus.
- Every evil load heaped on my progress, clear away, in the name of Jesus.
- Every satanic prayer against my destiny, scatter, in the name of Jesus.
- Every evil-hindering-force militating against me, scatter by fire, in the name of Jesus.
- Every witchcraft padlock hanging against my life, be smashed to pieces, in the name of Jesus.
- Every witchcraft engagement over my success, break, in the name of Jesus.
