Don’t be deceived: God is not mocked. For whatever a man sows he will also reap, Galatians 6:7 (Holman Christian Standard Bible)

Posted in Uncategorized at 1:19 am by Devotions with MYK. Come, walk with me.

   MC So & So walks up to the podium with an entourage of about 15 people all wearing multiple platinum diamond encrusted chains. Platinum, gold, diamonds and scantly clad women all about him. So & So has just one the top award for his song “Can I Swing?!” which talks about all the women that he has had sex with, drug money that he makes and the violence that he has inflicted and will inflict on others. With a drink in one hand, a blunt under hit cap, he grabs the mic and after some questionable male posturing accepts his award and thanks god for all of this and walks away headed for the evenings festivities. “Don’t be deceived…”

   Evangelist At This Moment is on a stage in front of 10,000 believes in CHRIST. He blows into the mic and hundreds just fall “slain in the spirit”, he smiles and starts to mumble incoherently. He says that god just spoke to him and told him that if the people want to be blessed, they must sow a seed of $50 into his ministry. “God”, he continues,” will bless those in need of a supernatural miracle, if that seed is greater than $250 and if you sow this seed today you will get my special prayer cloth and mat to petition the lord for your supernatural miracle.” “…God is not mocked…”

   “…For whatever a man sows he will also reap.” According to the world, MC So & So has it made and by the sound of it god gave it all to him. But it is a worldly value disguised to seem godly.

   1 Corinthians 6:9 (NASB) “… do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of
God? Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals”.

   How about Evangelist At This Moment? He seems to be walking full of Holy Ghost power. And his cloths and mats just fly off of his warehouse shelves. But keep in mind Matthew 7:21-23 (NKJV)

   “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’  And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’.”

   Brethren we are set apart. Do not allow the standards of this world dictate what is important, true and righteous. Do not call what is evil good and good evil (read Isaiah 5:20). And let us remember “…do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world (1 John 4:1 NKJV).”

   ABBA, FATHER I ask that your word takes hold in us, that it is carried with us as we walk in this world. I leave you with Acts 20:32 “So now, brethren, I commend you to God and to the word of His grace, which is able to build you up and give you an inheritance among all those who are sanctified.” AMEN.
