TOPIC: War Against The Spirit Of Desolation (I) (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Devotional 28 July 2022)
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: 1 Chronicle 4:9-43, 1 Chronicle 5, Romans 11:11-32, Psalm 89:19-29
FIRE SCRIPTURE: Jeremiah 44:1-22 (KJV)
1 The word that came to Jeremiah concerning all the Jews which dwell in the land of Egypt, which dwell at Migdol, and at Tahpanhes, and at Noph, and in the country of Pathros, saying,
2 Thus saith the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel; Ye have seen all the evil that I have brought upon Jerusalem, and upon all the cities of Judah; and, behold, this day they are a desolation, and no man dwelleth therein,
3 Because of their wickedness which they have committed to provoke me to anger, in that they went to burn incense, and to serve other gods, whom they knew not, neither they, ye, nor your fathers.
4 Howbeit I sent unto you all my servants the prophets, rising early and sending them, saying, Oh, do not this abominable thing that I hate.
5 But they hearkened not, nor inclined their ear to turn from their wickedness, to burn no incense unto other gods.
6 Wherefore my fury and mine anger was poured forth, and was kindled in the cities of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem; and they are wasted and desolate, as at this day.
7 Therefore now thus saith the Lord, the God of hosts, the God of Israel; Wherefore commit ye this great evil against your souls, to cut off from you man and woman, child and suckling, out of Judah, to leave you none to remain;
8 In that ye provoke me unto wrath with the works of your hands, burning incense unto other gods in the land of Egypt, whither ye be gone to dwell, that ye might cut yourselves off, and that ye might be a curse and a reproach among all the nations of the earth?
9 Have ye forgotten the wickedness of your fathers, and the wickedness of the kings of Judah, and the wickedness of their wives, and your own wickedness, and the wickedness of your wives, which they have committed in the land of Judah, and in the streets of Jerusalem?
10 They are not humbled even unto this day, neither have they feared, nor walked in my law, nor in my statutes, that I set before you and before your fathers.
11 Therefore thus saith the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel; Behold, I will set my face against you for evil, and to cut off all Judah.
12 And I will take the remnant of Judah, that have set their faces to go into the land of Egypt to sojourn there, and they shall all be consumed, and fall in the land of Egypt; they shall even be consumed by the sword and by the famine: they shall die, from the least even unto the greatest, by the sword and by the famine: and they shall be an execration, and an astonishment, and a curse, and a reproach.
13 For I will punish them that dwell in the land of Egypt, as I have punished Jerusalem, by the sword, by the famine, and by the pestilence:
14 So that none of the remnant of Judah, which are gone into the land of Egypt to sojourn there, shall escape or remain, that they should return into the land of Judah, to the which they have a desire to return to dwell there: for none shall return but such as shall escape.
15 Then all the men which knew that their wives had burned incense unto other gods, and all the women that stood by, a great multitude, even all the people that dwelt in the land of Egypt, in Pathros, answered Jeremiah, saying,
16 As for the word that thou hast spoken unto us in the name of the Lord, we will not hearken unto thee.
17 But we will certainly do whatsoever thing goeth forth out of our own mouth, to burn incense unto the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto her, as we have done, we, and our fathers, our kings, and our princes, in the cities of Judah, and in the streets of Jerusalem: for then had we plenty of victuals, and were well, and saw no evil.
18 But since we left off to burn incense to the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto her, we have wanted all things, and have been consumed by the sword and by the famine.
19 And when we burned incense to the queen of heaven, and poured out drink offerings unto her, did we make her cakes to worship her, and pour out drink offerings unto her, without our men?
20 Then Jeremiah said unto all the people, to the men, and to the women, and to all the people which had given him that answer, saying,
21 The incense that ye burned in the cities of Judah, and in the streets of Jerusalem, ye, and your fathers, your kings, and your princes, and the people of the land, did not the Lord remember them, and came it not into his mind?
22 So that the Lord could no longer bear, because of the evil of your doings, and because of the abominations which ye have committed; therefore is your land a desolation, and an astonishment, and a curse, without an inhabitant, as at this day.
MEMORY VERSE: “And I will make your cities waste, and bring your sanctuaries unto desolation, and I will not smell the savour of your sweet odours.” – Leviticus 26:31

PROPHETIC WORD FOR TODAY:

MFM Devotional For Today 2022 MESSAGE:
The Israelites had been a stiff-necked people right from when they were in Egypt, and even when they were delivered from the bondage of Egypt, they continued with their stubborn streak. This made God to release them into the hands of the enemies to be taught a lesson.
In our Fire Scripture, Jeremiah was warning them about their unrighteousness and all kinds of ungodly behaviour they were putting up, and he told them that the house which had become their pride would become a desolation. Anytime people take away their focus from God and focus on their possession, God will leave them to satisfy themselves, but at the same time, divine judgement will be hanging on their head.

Desolation means to be wasted. It is zero level of loneliness. Desolation is an instrument that God uses to punish evil-doers. It is also a weapon in the hand of satan to destroy. John 10:10a says, “The thief cometh not, but to steal and to kill and to destroy…”. I pray for you that as you read this devotional, the arrow of desolation will not locate you, in the name of Jesus.
Dearly beloved, when the spirit of desolation is in a life, it pushes the person into making the wrong choices because the enemy is determined to punish the person. To wage war against the spirit of desolation, you must retrace your steps back to God, He is the one that has the power over every power and spirit of desolation. When desolation comes, it is not on a friendly visit but on an assignment to empty what one has gathered. Therefore, you need to go back to God. He has the whole world in His hands. He has the power to bring the spirit of desolation under control – Accept Him today.
- Power of the Holy Ghost to overcome every battle of life, fall upon me, in the name of Jesus.
- Spirit of the Living God, come upon me and fight for me, in the name of Jesus.
- Foundational power attacking my glory, collapse and die, in the name of Jesus.
- Spirit of desolation, I am not your candidate, scatter, in the name of Jesus.
- Anything militating against my peace of mind, die, in the name of Jesus.
- Any power assigned to empty my life, die, in the name of Jesus.
- Let God arise and let my glory shine, in the name of Jesus.
