THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS BY SAMUEL EXCELLENCE

6th April, 2019

IPR DAILY DEVOTION


Topic: THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS

THEME SCRIPTURE:

Revelation 17:5 (KJV)

And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.

MESSAGE:

The quest for lasting peace in the world is of paramount interest to almost all nations of the world. God’s offer to the world for lasting peace is His Son, Jesus Christ, the Prince of Peace; rejecting God’s offer for lasting peace is to expose one’s self to Satan’s offer.

Our theme Scripture refers to the religious set-up of the world which seeks to bring all religions under one umbrella. The Scripture calls it, “Mystery”, because it is a satanic hidden agenda; unfortunately, most of the people who have rejected God’s offer for lasting peace will become victims of this satanic agenda. Another name for this religious set-up is, “Babylon the great”; it is called so, because this religious set-up will rule and influence all nations the same way Babylon ruled the world in the days of king Nebuchadnezzar. Lastly, it is called, “The mother of harlots and abominations of the earth.” Harlotry refers to unguarded sexual profligacy, where everything is acceptable, and anything goes. There will come a time when everything is acceptable, and everyone can do whatever pleases him/her, so long as it doesn’t infringe upon the rights of others. Truly, that is the mother of all abominations.

The stage is being set for people all over the world to embrace “one world religion.” One world religion is ecumenism, where all religions are brought together under one umbrella; but unity of the faith is not ecumenism. Unity of the faith is when we’ve all grown to the same level of maturity of faith in Christ Jesus. It is believed that the problems of the world are caused by all forms of fundamentalism. 

A fundamentalist is one who holds dearly and tenaciously to the tenets of his faith; and for the world to achieve lasting peace, it is believed that the solution is to unite and bring all religions under one umbrella. Indeed, this is the mother of harlots and abominations of the earth!

God gave a very strict warning to Israel when they left Egypt, that they should beware of such harlotry; it is never God’s intention for unity to be achieved through ecumenism. Israel’s rejection of this one world religion is what will lead to their invasion by the forces of the antichrist.

Acts 13:22
22 And when he had removed him, he raised up unto them David to be their king; to whom also he gave testimony, and said, I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after mine own heart, which shall fulfil all my will.From yesterday's devotional, we know that Without  purpose, life  is meaningless  and  unfulfilling. It is important for you to discover the purpose for which you were created,  blessed  and  anointed, and that God definitely created you for a purpose. God  anoints  you for a purpose.  Purpose  is  the  reason for the anointing.  Without purpose the anointing is either  wasted or abused. It is needful to also note that God  anoints people for a  purpose.You are  anointed to serve God  and touch people’s lives.  A powerful anointing  produces supernatural  results in others. God  anointed King David,  a  man after His…

Main Text:Genesis 1:28And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth,  and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of  the sea, and over the fowl  of the air, and over every living thing that moveth  upon the earth.The Oxford dictionary  defines “purpose” as the reason for which something is done or created or for which something exists. Without purpose, life  is meaningless and unfulfilling. It is important for you to discover the purpose for which you were created,  blessed and anointed.  Purpose is not the prerogative of  a privileged few in the world – everybody should know his or her purpose in life.God created you for a purpose. He created  Adam and Eve and gave them the divine mandate to rule the universe and make the earth productive (Genesis 1:28). The  earth has great potential but it takes human beings to …

The Seven Spirits of God By Rev Eastwood Anaba

Topic: The Seven Spirits of God
Scripture Reading:
Isaiah 11:1-2; Luke 4:1-19
Main Text:
Revelation 4:5
5 And out of the throne proceeded lightnings and thunderings and voices: and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God.
In  Isaiah  11:1-2, the  prophet Isaiah describes the seven-fold nature of the Spirit of the LORD who would rest on the Messiah. The Holy Ghost rests upon you with His perfect nature to subdue your human nature. His seven-fold nature overwrites your human inadequacies. His nature is superior to your human nature. He is what and who you are not. He does what you cannot do and gives what you cannot give.
In the book of  Revelation, John referred to the seven Spirits of God (Revelation 4:5). There is only one Holy Ghost so the term seven Spirits of God refers to the seven-fold character of the Holy Ghost. There is one Spirit with a seven-fold characterisation. Isaiah 11…
