DAY 5: Wednesday, 15th JANUARY, 2013 – “MERCHANTS OF UNGODLINESS IN GOD’S TEMPLE: BE DISGRACED!”
BIBLE STUDY FOR TODAY: 1 CORINTHIANS CHAPTER 3: verse 1-23.
Don’t bother seeking a church or temple of worship John 4:21:“”Woman,” Jesus replied, “believe me, a time is coming when you will worship the Father neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem.” You are the temple of the Living God. You are the fearfully and beautifully made masterpiece of Yahweh! You are the first temple, therefore, worship God in truth and in spirit.
No wonder the Bible said in 1 Corinthians 3:16-17: said: “Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.”
This is the major reason why satan seeks to destroy that temple by firing arrows of all manner of ungodliness to decimate our bodies. With holy fury Jesus our Lord set a symbolic example in Matthew 21:12-13:“And Jesus entered the temple and drove out all those who were buying and selling in the temple, and overturned the tables of the money changers and the seats of those who were selling doves. And He said to them, “It is written, ‘MY HOUSE SHALL BE CALLED A HOUSE OF PRAYER’; but you are making it a ROBBERS’ DEN.”” By chasing destiny robbers out of the temple with the whip, he has given us a mandate to do same and turn that temple into a temple of prayer and worship. May every affliction ravaging your body and your destiny be driven out of your life as you pray this prayers in Jesus name.
CONFESS AND MEDITATE ON THESE SCRIPTURES:
1 Corinthians 6:18-20:“Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body. What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.”
Romans 12:1:“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.”
Revelation 21:21-22:“And the twelve gates were twelve pearls; each one of the gates was a single pearl. And the street of the city was pure gold, like transparent glass. I saw no temple in it, for the Lord God the Almighty and the Lamb are its temple.”
After the praise and worship session, go with your prophetic sword into battle using these 14 prayer points for DAY 5. Pray it at midnight and midday. Couple it with the prescribed fast, I know by the assurance of faith in the awesome power of God that never faileth, He will answer us by Fire! in the name of Jesus. God bless you as you read the scriptures, confess the word of God and pray in Jesus’ name.
