MY GLORY MUST SHINE! Dr D.K Olukoya

The subject of glory is very deep. Every individual created by God has a glory and everyone’s glory is unique. The Bible makes it clear that there are different kinds of glory.

1 Corinthians 15:38-41Open in Logos Bible Software (if available)

But God giveth it a body as it hath pleased him, and to every seed his own body. All flesh is not the same flesh: but there is one kind of flesh of men, another flesh of beasts, another of fishes, and another of birds. There are also celestial bodies and bodies terrestrial.” but the glory of the celestial is one, and the glory of the terrestrial is another. There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars: for one star differeth from another star in glory.

Exodus 33:18Open in Logos Bible Software (if available)

And he said, I beseech thee shew me thy glory.

In the Bible passage above, Moses asked God to show him His glory because he knew that once he has access to the glory of God, his life would never remain the same.

The issue of glory is so important that even God Himself guards His own glory jealously.

God says in Isaiah 42:8Open in Logos Bible Software (if available):

I am the LORD: that is my name: and my glory will not give to another, neither my praise to graven images.

God says lie will not share His glory with another. The word “glory” is an interesting word. Glory means so many things: it means honour, a distinguished quality. Glory means outstanding. Glory means magnificence.

DIVINE GLORY

The Bible also makes it crystal clear that there is the glory of God. The glory of God means the special manifestation of the revelation of the divine power. It means the physical signs of God’s presence in a person‘s life. The glory of God means the glorious presence of God that travels from His throne to shine on one. It means the overshadowing power of God that can protect, deliver, empower and suit a person. The glory of God incubates refreshes and prospers a person.

BENEFITS OF GLORY

When the glory of God is upon your life, you don’t need to pray about deliverance; you don’t need to pray about healing and prosperity because the glory of God is enough to give you everything. The glory of God is the seal that protects the saints. It is the protective, preservative, glorious presence of God. It is a divine aura surrounding a person. It is the tabernacle of God into your life, it is having access into the mysteries of God.

It is a tragedy if you don’t encounter the glory of God; it will be unfortunate if the enemy has taken the glory of God away from your life— Acts 12:21-23Open in Logos Bible Software (if available): “And upon a set day Herod, arrayed in royal apparel, sat upon his throne, and made an oration unto them. And the people gave a shout, saying, It is the voice of a god, and not of a man. And immediately the angel of the Lord smote him, because he gave not God the glory: and he was eaten of worms, and gave up the ghost. ”

Herod made a mistake and the angel of the Lord smote him. Herod put James to death. He planned to cut off Peter’s head. When he found out that Peter had escaped, he killed the sixteen soldiers that guarded Peter. Herod caused sixteen funeral services. He created sixteen widows and sixteen fatherless homes. Despite all his sins, God never did anything to him. However, the day he tampered with the glory of God Almighty, Herod received swift judgement.

This shows how serious God guards His glory.

TYPES OF GLORY

As far as man is concerned, there are four kinds of glory.

Glory given to you by the LORD: It is part of what God has and has given to you; His glory radiating upon your life, just like He did for Moses.

Inherited glory.

Acquired glory.

lnborn glory.

The Bible says that God’s ultimate purpose for you is to carry His glory. Every man has deposited glory. Your glory is your shining forth.

Your glory is your tangible virtue. Your glory is your internal Moses; the Moses God has deposited in you for the days of trouble. Your

glory is your destiny promotion; it is your quota of divine excellence planted in you.

YOUR GLORY

Your glory is your unique capacity. Your glory is what you can do but you have not done yet. Your glory is the star of your destiny. Your glory magnetises favour unto you. Your glory is your urge for greatness. lt is the positive aura that God has used to surround you.

The trouble about glory is that it can be stolen. It can be transferred, it can be lost, it can fade away, it can sink, it can be killed, destroyed,

buried or turned to shame. The devil’s agenda is to bury the glory of man. When somebody goes from grace to grass, his glory has been buried.

When somebody is suffering from poverty of clear thinking; when the person cannot think clearly about the consequences of the actions he is taking, this means the person’s glory has been buried.

STEPS TO DELIVERANCE

You need to surrender your life to Jesus Christ: You need to completely surrender your life to Jesus. When you surrender your life to Jesus, all beggarly powers are swept away. Perhaps there is something you are using to gain power, that thing will help you to bury your glory if you don’t surrender to Jesus.

You need to obey completely: You must do what God wants you to do. You must hearken to His voice. You must obey God in everything He says you should do.

You need to pray recovery prayers to recover what the enemy has stolen from you: There is no gentle way of arresting anything evil. The only way to arrest evil is through violent prayers.

Beloved, in this year of supernatural ease and double honour, the God that answers by fire will make your glory to shine and your joy shall be full, in the name of Jesus.

PRAYER POINTS

Father, I thank You because You are good and Your mercy endures forever, in the name of Jesus.

Blood of Jesus, avail and prevail for me this month, in the name of Jesus.

O God arise, baptise me with Your Spirit and fire in the name of Jesus.

O God arise and baptise me with the oil of unprecedented favour. in the name of Jesus.

Any power, programmed against my glory, die, in the name of Jesus.

Every good road closed against me, open by fire, in the name of Jesus.

O God, by Your name JAH, let my glory manifest and shine ceaselessly, in the name of Jesus.

Any cage of darkness where my (destiny/business/career/marriage/ministry/finance) has been shut, I force you open, in the name of Jesus.

Where is the Lord God of Elijah? Arise, bombard my life with multiple breakthroughs this month, in the name of Jesus.

Father, Let Your peace that passes all understanding overshadow my life, in the name of Jesus.

MFM Devotional 26th February 2021 – Remember Lot’s Wife

Published

on

MFM Devotional 26th February 2021 (Mountain Top Life Daily Devotional Guide By Dr D.K Olukoya

TOPIC: Remember Lot’s Wife

Fire Scripture
Luke 17:28-32

Memory verse
Luke 17:32 – “Remember Lot’s wife.”

MFM Devotional 26th February 2021 Outline

The greatest obstacle to spiritual growth is the flesh. When you keep investing in the flesh, what you reap is death (Romans 8:6-7). Lot’s wife is a perfect example of a woman who invested much in the flesh and ended up being destroyed. Our Lord Jesus, talking about His second coming in the text above, compared it to the events that happened when Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed and admonished you and me to remember Lot’s wife.

What is it about Lot’s wife that you are to remember? She was married to a righteous man and into a godly family. Heaven provided her the grace and great opportunities to escape the judgement and destruction coming against her generation. However, she misused the grace and lost the opportunity to be saved because she loved the world and the things that are in the world. Though she was physically moving out of Sodom and Gomorrah as instructed, her heart was still knitted to her idols and gods (treasures, jewelry, gold and silver). As a result, against God’s command, she looked back and turned to a pillar of salt!

Today, you and I are saved and have the grace to escape the wrath to come and spend eternity in heaven. Are you not misusing the grace of God the way Mrs Lot did? Are you not married to career, business, spouse and wealth, so much that you forsake worship and service that you owe God? Are you not “looking back” like Lot’s wife? If you are guilty of all these, you need to repent.

Beloved, Lot’s wife is a type of believers today. Sodom and Gomorrah represent this world that God will judge with fire in the end. The instruction to flee Sodom and Gomorrah and not look back is the gospel of salvation from eternal damnation that you hear and read today.

Loving the world and the things that are in it, including idols like Mammon and so on, will make the word of God of little or no effect in your life. Like Lot’s wife, many have backslidden. I pray that backsliding will not be your portion, in Jesus’ name. I advise you to purge your heart of all idols, worldliness and carnality. Remember Lots wife. Repent and turn to God with a true heart so that you are not caught unaware.

Motivational Quote
A carnal Christian and an unbeliever will end up in the same destination.

Prophetic Word
You will not end up in destruction, in the name of Jesus.

HYMN
Are you ready

1. There’s a great day coming, A great day coming,
There’s a great day coming by and by;
When the saints and the sinners shall be parted right and left,
Are you ready for that day to come?

Chorus
Are you ready?
Are you ready?
Are you ready for the judgement day?
Are you ready?
Are you ready for that judgement day?

2. There’s a bright day coming, A bright day coming,
There’s a bright day coming by and by;
But it’s brightness shall only come to them that love the Lord,
Are you ready for that day to come?

TODAY’S PRAYER POINTS
MORNING
1. Lord, let my flesh life melt away, in the name of Jesus.
2. F a t h e r, d e l i v e r m e f r o m worldliness, in the name of Jesus.
3. Holy Ghost fire, purify my heart, in the name of Jesus.

EVENING
1. Father, help me not to look back, in the name of Jesus.
2. Father, set my heart on fire for you, in the name of Jesus.
3. Father, restore my first love, in the name of Jesus.
4. Help me, Lord, not to miss heaven, in the name of Jesus.

Open Heaven Friday 26th February 2021 – Danger of Alcohol (2)

Published

on

Open Heaven Friday 26th February 2021 Daily Devotional Guide By Pastor E.A Adeboye

 

TOPIC: Danger of Alcohol (2)

MEMORISE:
“Give strong drink unto him that is ready to perish, and wine unto those that be of heavy hearts.” – (Proverbs 31:6)

READ: Proverbs 31:4-6 (KJV)
4. It is not for kings, O Lemuel, it is not for kings to drink wine; nor for princes strong drink;

5. Lest they drink, and forget the law, and pervert the judgment of any of the afflicted.

6. Give strong drink unto him that is ready to perish, and wine unto those that be of heavy hearts.

Open Heaven Friday 26th February 2021 Devotional Guide By Pastor E.A Adeboye:

Wine is a mocker, strong drink is raging; and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise. – Proverbs 20:1

The Bible says it is only fools who take alcohol. Alcohol makes a fool of anyone who consumes it, so much that the drunkard standing on solid ground can begin to think he is sleeping in the middle of the sea. He would think he is lying on a bed. Imagine such mockery.

“Oh, I just want to take a little; I can’t get drunk: I know how to control myself.” No one starts drinking with the intention of misbehaving and acting foolish. It starts with looking at the drink and desiring it. The moment you start desiring it, you are already treading close to the trap of the devil and you will soon fall if you don’t take your eyes and mind off it. If you know that you struggle with taking alcohol, why would you go for a meeting in a bar? You are only tempting yourself. If you want to stop drinking, then you have to overcome the fear of losing the friends who drink with you.

When I met Christ and stopped drinking, I lost friends because whenever they visited me, I offered them soft drinks instead of the assorted alcoholic beverages we used to drink. I lost friends, but God replaced them with many brothers and sisters in Him.

Proverbs 31:4 says:
It is not for kings, O Lemuel, it is not for kings to drink wine; nor for princes strong drink:

In other words, the one who drinks cannot make clear decisions. If a person cannot make good decisions, how then would such a person excel in life? How would he or she become great and fulfil destiny? If you want to achieve greatness in life and have all your dreams come true, you have to let go of alcohol.

How do you stop taking alcohol? Stop looking at it. Don’t look at the drink or it’s container at all. Don’t watch the adverts, don’t spend time around people who drink or talk about alcohol.

Look not thou upon the wine when it is red, when it giveth his colour in the cup, when it moveth itself aright. At the last it biteth like serpent, and stingeth like an adder. – (Proverbs 23:31-32)

Abstain from alcohol, it ruins destinies.

KEY POINT:
Alcohol has nothing else to offer the drinker but evil. Flee from it.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:
Exodus 14-16

HYMNAL:
HYMN 22 – STAND UP! STAND UP FOR JESUS

1. Stand up! stand up for Jesus,
Ye soldiers of the Cross!
Lift high His royal banner;
It must not suffer loss.
From vict’ry unto vict’ry
His army shall He lead,
Till every foe is vanquished,
And Christ is Lord indeed.

2. Stand up! stand up for Jesus,
The trumpet call obey;
Forth to the mighty conflict,
In this His glorious day;
Ye that are men now serve Him
Against unnumbered foes;
Let courage rise with danger,
And strength to strength oppose.

3. Stand up! stand up for Jesus!
Stand in His strength alone;
The arm of flesh will fail you,
Ye dare not trust your own:
Put on the gospel armour,
And watching unto prayer;
Where duty calls, or danger,
Be never wanting there.

4. Stand up! stand up for Jesus!
The strife will not be long;
This day the noise of battle,
The next the victor’s song;
To him that overcometh,
A crown of life shall be;
He with the King of glory
Shall reign eternally.

Rhapsody of Realities 24th February 2021 – See the Word in Pictures

Published

on

Rhapsody of Realities 24th February 2021 Devotional Guide By Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

 

TOPIC: See the Word in Pictures

Scripture: While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal (2 Corinthians 4:18).

Rhapsody of Realities 24th February 2021 Devotional Message:

When you study the Scriptures, learn to do so with pictures; see with the eyes of your spirit; believe and act accordingly. It’s the blessings that your spirit takes a hold of that’ll manifest in your life. Therefore, as you listen to, or study the Word, visualize your victory, prosperity, health, peace, progress and success from within, and affirm accordingly.

Before the physical manifestation of the glory and victories that you desire in life, you must see them first within you. Once you can see it from within, then it’s yours. You can never have it on the outside if you didn’t first have it within. That’s where some have missed it. They want to see first with their physical eyes before calling it real; that’s not faith. Faith is calling real that which the physical senses can’t perceive.

For example, God said to Abraham, “Neither shall thy name any more be called Abram, but thy name shall be Abraham; for a father of many nations have I made thee…” (Genesis 17:5-6). Abraham first had to visualise himself as the father of many nations. At the time God spoke to him, he was ninety-nine years old, and Sarah his wife, was equally old and barren. Nevertheless, the Bible says, “He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God” (Romans 4:20). In Genesis 15:5, the Lord had said to him, “…Look now toward heaven, and tell the stars, if thou be able to number them: and … So shall thy seed be.” Abraham believed. He saw the picture of his uncountable descendants—numerous as the stars—from within.

What is it that you desire in your life today? Is it a child? See it inside first. Is it the growth and expansion of your church, a new job or business? Create the picture and take possession in the spirit, and with your spirit, first, because it’s already real in the spirit-realm. Hallelujah!

CONFESSION
Dear Father, thank you for the gift to comprehend the wonderful blessings you’ve prepared for me to enjoy in Christ. I visualize my victory, prosperity, health, peace, progress and success in your Word by the power of the Holy Spirit, and take possession of these realities through my faith proclamations. The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places, and indeed, I have a goodly heritage. Hallelujah!
