TOPIC: Rewards of Iniquity

FIRE SCRIPTURE: Acts 1: 15 – 20 
15 And in those days Peter stood up in the midst of the disciples, and said, (the number of names together were about an hundred and twenty,)

16 Men and brethren, this scripture must needs have been fulfilled, which the Holy Ghost by the mouth of David spake before concerning Judas, which was guide to them that took Jesus.

17 For he was numbered with us, and had obtained part of this ministry.

18 Now this man purchased a field with the reward of iniquity; and falling headlong, he burst asunder in the midst, and all his bowels gushed out.

19 And it was known unto all the dwellers at Jerusalem; insomuch as that field is called in their proper tongue, Aceldama, that is to say, The field of blood.

20 For it is written in the book of Psalms, Let his habitation be desolate, and let no man dwell therein: and his bishoprick let another take.

For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.
1 Timothy 6:10

MFM Daily Devotional 7 March 2024 MESSAGE

Today, many people have wealth and riches but no peace. Some parade fabulous material possessions but lack good health and joy. Though men and women celebrate them and use them as points of contact for blessings, heaven is displeased with them and condemns them because their wealth, riches and possessions are ill-gotten rewards of iniquity.

Kidnappers who flaunt the money made from ransoms the ritual killer who flaunts his blood money, producers of fake products and all who make money illegitimately are all guilty of amassing the gains of iniquity. Beloved, God is interested in how you make your money. He is holy and righteous and demands that we are also. Our holy God will not accept the gains of iniquity, money or gift made through sinful means from anyone.

READ MFM Daily Devotional 6 March 2024 – The Sin-Remitting Blood of Jesus

The reason is that money made from sin and iniquity will destroy the souls of those who made them. Our Fire Scripture revealed the unpleasant fate that befell Judas Iscariot. The Bible says he made money by betraying Jesus and leading those who arrested Him to identify Him. Judas was paid for his ungodly service. The Bible calls the money he made the reward of iniquity. Did Judas live to enjoy the reward of iniquity he got? No, he didn’t.

The excessive love of money was Judas’ undoing. He colluded with the enemy to arrest and crucify a sinless and guiltless man. He betrayed the trust his master reposed in him. What were the consequences he faced for receiving the reward of iniquity? First, he lost his peace of mind. He became troubled for conspiring against and being instrumental to the death of an innocent man, Jesus Christ.

He suddenly realised the gravity of his misdeed. Second, Judas lost his joy and comradeship with the other disciples. He also lost his bishopric. He had failed His master and failed heaven. The shame, disappointment and sorrow that became his lot led him to commit suicide. He did not live to enjoy the reward of iniquity. It became as bitter as gall to him.

Beloved, I advise you to beware of mammon and the reward of iniquity. Do not make money or amass wealth through sinful and ungodly means. The consequences are usually grave. You will end well, in Jesus’ name.


1. Father, I thank You for teaching me and giving me the power to make wealth in your own way, in the name of Jesus.
2. Father, help me to be a faithful steward of the money and wealth that You have given me, in the name of Jesus.
3. O God, forgive me of any way I might have idolized money in my life, in the name of Jesus.

4. O God, arise and crush down the spirit and idol of mammon in my life, in the name of Jesus.
5. My family and I shall not serve mamm0n, in the name of Jesus.
6. I connect my money and finances t0 the altar of the living God, in the name of Jesus.
7. I access the treasures of darkness and riches kept in secret places, in the name of Jesus
