TOPIC: Signs Of The Times (V) (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Devotional 22 August 2022)
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: 2 Chronicles 16, 2 Chronicles 17, 2 Chronicles 18:1-27, 1 Corinthians 15:1-34, Psalm 102:1-11
FIRE SCRIPTURE: Matthew 24:10-24 (KJV)
10 And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.
11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.
12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.
13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.
15 When ye, therefore, shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)
16 Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains:
17 Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take anything out of his house:
18 Neither let him who is in the field return back to take his clothes.
19 And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!
20 But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day:
21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.
22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.
23 Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not.
24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
MEMORY VERSE: “Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.” – Luke 21:26
Spirituality is not determined by biological age but by inner maturity.
PRAISE AND WORSHIP:
Pray about everything, worry about nothing!
PROPHETIC WORD FOR TODAY:
YOUR LIFE WILL DAILY ATTRACT MEN INTO THE KINGDOM, IN THE NAME OF JESUS
MFM Devotional For Today 2022 MESSAGE:
Yesterday we looked at persecution and killing of Christians as parts of the signs of the times foretold by Jesus Christ. Another is grand-scale hatred of believers. The Bible says, If the world hates you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you (John 15:18). Because of this hatred, many Christians are being denied their benefits and legitimate rights. If this is your experience, be sure that your God will fight for you, in Jesus’ name. In addition, in the circle of believers, many shall be offended (Matthew 24:10). This sign of the times is very touching because there are many people who are turning away from Christ today, giving ridiculously flimsy excuses like ‘when I returned from my trip, nobody came to greet me’; ‘when my aged father was sick, I prayed for him, yet he died’ etc. Many of those taking offence are supposedly old Christians. You, who are reading this devotional today, I hope you are not like that.

Brotherly betrayal is another sign of the times. The way some believers are crushing the hearts of their fellow brethren these days is something unimaginable. The question raised by Prophet Malachi is very relevant. “Have we not all one father? Hath not one God created us? why do we deal treacherously with every man against his brother..?” (Malachi 2:10).
In a communist country, the communist soldiers arrested a pastor and his disciples — two teenage sisters. On the promise of liberty by the soldiers, the Pastor shot the two sisters dead, Unfortunately, he too was eventually killed by the soldiers as they asked him to go.
Other signs include hatred among Christians; the emergence of many false prophets who will deceive many, and the love of many waxing colds because of iniquity. There is also the widespread preaching of the gospel globally which has been enhanced through the internet. “And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh” (Luke 21:28). Are you ready for His coming?
- Jesus, the Living Water, purify my life.
- Corruption from my foundation, be cleared away by fire, in the name of Jesus.
- Spiritual laziness, you shall not prosper in my life, die, in the name of Jesus.
- Arrow of lukewarmness, release my soul and die, in the name of Jesus.
- Whether the devil likes it or not, I shall not be among his disciples in hell fire, in the name of Jesus.
- I shall not die with the enemy like Samson, in the name of Jesus.
- I receive grace to overcome life’s battles and be victorious, in the name of Jesus.
