TOPIC: It Shall Turn to You for a Testimony (II)
FIRE SCRIPTURE: Luke 21:5-18
5 And as some spake of the temple, how it was adorned with goodly stones and gifts, he said,
6 As for these things which ye behold, the days will come, in the which there shall not be left one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.
7 And they asked him, saying, Master, but when shall these things be? and what sign will there be when these things shall come to pass?
8 And he said, Take heed that ye be not deceived: for many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and the time draweth near: go ye not therefore after them.
9 But when ye shall hear of wars and commotions, be not terrified: for these things must first come to pass; but the end is not by and by.
10 Then said he unto them, Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom:
11 And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.
12 But before all these, they shall lay their hands on you, and persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues, and into prisons, being brought before kings and rulers for my name’s sake.
13 And it shall turn to you for a testimony.
14 Settle it therefore in your hearts, not to meditate before what ye shall answer:
15 For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist.
16 And ye shall be betrayed both by parents, and brethren, and kinsfolks, and friends; and some of you shall they cause to be put to death.
17 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake.
18 But there shall not an hair of your head perish.
And it shall turn to you for a testimony.

MFM Daily Devotional 31 December 2023 MESSAGE
Yesterday, we explained that though Jesus affirmed that believers will experience some unpleasant incidents in the last days. He would not leave them fatherless or comfortless. All their unpleasant experiences will tum to glorious testimonies for them. It means that false Christ will come to deceive people but you will not be deceived.
Rather, you will discern the truth and escape the enemy’s snare. There will be wars. Nations will rise against nations and kingdoms will rise against kingdoms, just like the current Russia-Ukraine war. Beloved, you will only hear about it, you will not be a casualty of war. Also, there will be earthquakes, and pestilences (COVID-19, monkeypox, etc.) but you shall enjoy divine immunity from them.
Lastly, though earthly rulers and kings persecute and imprison you, God will arise for your help and use your deliverance to convert them. These are some of the wonderful ways God will use to tum your unpleasant experience to a great testimony.
Beloved, we are in the last days. Heaven and earth will pass away, but no jot of God’s word will go unfulfilled. The pronouncement of Jesus that unpleasant situations in your life will turn to pleasant and that you will have become a living proof of God’s goodness shall be fulfilled, in the name of Jesus.
On your part, to enjoy the blessings of this prophecy, here are the things you need to do:
- Accept Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Saviour
- Have faith in God. Without faith, you cannot please God and appropriate His prophecies
- Get the baptism of the Holy Spirit and fire. The power of God in your life will help you to confront and conquer in the days of tests and trials.
- Be an avid reader and doer of God’s word
- Pray without ceasing
- Personally claim this prophecy and promise into your life.
I want you to remember that the Lord who said, “Behold, I am with you always, even to the end of the age” is still on the throne and He remains forever faithful. You will end this year in celebration, in the name of Jesus.
