MFM Daily Devotional 8th July 2021 Outline

Today’s topic for your devotion is a serious food for your constant meditation because God always exposes the works of darkness with His light. The second reason is that the depth of satan is wrapped up in deception. God hates liars and has reserved hell fire for them. The Jews have a wise saying, “Truth is heavy: only a few men can carry it.” Jesus used the term “Whited Sepulchres” to refer to the conduct of the Pharisees of the time of His earthly ministry.

This is a very strong negative symbolic analysis of someone who is supposed to be a child of God. There is an understanding that the word “Pharisee” has two root words: ‘far’ and ‘see.’ The Pharisees are ‘far seers.’ This means that they see from afar, from a distance. They do not see clearly. To this extent, they do not have the grasp of the truth of God. They act the truth but do not live in truth. They are hypocrites.


The Greek meaning of hypocrite is ‘actor.’ Jesus knew that they were “actors” and that explains why He reserved very strong condemnation for their evil ways, especially because they were leaders. Who is a whited sepulchre?

The following list will shed light on the issue: someone who is inwardly corrupt or wicked but displays an outward good face, someone who does not know the ways of God, but pretends to know them, someone whose rottenness smells before God but uses strong perfume( deception) to hide it from unsuspecting people around them, someone who is supposed to be a child of God but is a child of the devil over and again, someone who leads people to hellfire from the gates of the church, a spiritual leader who understands the depth of satan and is using this evil knowledge in the church to steal, kill and to destroy.

God hates hypocrites in the church to no end because they misrepresent Him. They are neither cold nor hot; they are boastful, showy, arrogant and spiritually filthy. God says He will spue them from His mouth. This shall not be your portion by His grace.

Memory Verse: Acts 23: 3 -” Then said Paul unto him, God shall smite thee thou whited wall: for sittest thou to judge me after the law and commandest me to be smitten contrary to the law?”

Motivational Quote: Those who are really born again in Christ Jesus do not deceive people or themselves in their conduct of working out their salvation. They are like an open book on a library table.

Prophetic Word: You shall walk in perfect harmony with God’s will for your life, in the name of Jesus.

HYMN: Who Is on The Lord’s Side?

1. Who is on the Lord’s side? Who will serve the King?
Who will be His helpers, Other lives to bring?
Who will leave the world’s side? Who will face the foe?
Who is on the Lord’s side? Who for Him will go?
By Thy call of mercy, By Thy grace divine,
We are on the Lord’s side, Saviour, we are Thine.

2. Not for weight of glory, Not for crown and palm,
Enter we the army, Raise the warrior psalm;
But for love that claimeth Lives for whom He died;
He whom Jesus nameth Must be on His side.
By Thy love constraining By Thy grace divine,
We are on the Lord’s side, Saviour, we are Thine.

3. Jesus, Thou hast bought us, Not with gold or gem,
But with Thine own lifeblood, For Thy diadem.
With Thy blessing filling Each who comes to Thee,
Thou hast made us willing, Thou hast made us free.
By Thy grand redemption, By Thy grace divine,
We are on the Lord’s side, Saviour, we are Thine.
