TOPIC: FOLLY OF IDOLATRY

TEXT: DEUTERONOMY 17:1-6

KEY VERSE: “Then shalt thou bring forth that man or that woman, which have committed that wicked thing, unto thy gates, even that man or that woman, and shalt stone them with stones, till they die” – Deuteronomy 17:5

MESSAGE: DCLM DAILY MANNA TODAY 21ST FEBRUARY 2021 SUNDAY

Brother Dominic came from an idol worshipping community. His father was the priest to a tree by the village stream, which the whole community worshipped. They ascribed all sorts of mysterious powers to the tree. But on getting to Lagos, Dominic heard the good news about Jesus Christ, repented and became a Christian.

He went home on annual leave with his family, but he was surprised that the whole community began to weep because their son “had abandoned the god of his fathers and followed a strange God”. God’s people are warned in our text against offering any ill-favoured animal for sacrifice, for that is an abomination to Him. He further warned against any man or woman who would go to worship other gods – the sun, the moon or any of the hosts of heaven.

Such individuals, after diligent inquiry, must be stoned to death. Idol worship is an affront to God. It is giving the glory due unto Him to graven images. God is a jealous God and rightly so. He is the One who “created all things, and for [His] pleasure, they are and were created” (Revelation 4:11). The folly of men and women who “worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator” has been a source of concern to God all through the ages.

Today’s idol worship is manifold. Some worship self, money, a mentor, fashion, sports, etc. Even in the church, some find it difficult to pay close attention to and take careful note of the Word, to worship and to pray. The preacher must round off, because there is a football match or television programme coming up. But God still demands true worship today. Heaven-bound saints must avoid every shade of idolatry and worship the Father “in spirit and in truth”.

Thought For Today: Idolatry is rebellion against heaven.

DCLM Daily Manna Today Devotional 1st March 2021 – A Mate For Adam

Today Devotional; DCLM Daily Manna for Monday 1st March 2021; written by Pastor W.F Kumuyi. May you be blessed as you read on.

TOPIC: A MATE FOR ADAM

TEXT: GENESIS 2:16-25

Key Verse: “And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man” – Genesis 2:23

OUTLINE: DCLM DAILY MANNA DEVOTIONAL 1ST MARCH 2021 TODAY

Marriage among humans is a universal concept. Every people, race and nation has its established ways of conducting it. As a convention, marriages seek to secure partnership, procreation and purity for two mature adults who accept to bind themselves together in it. From the biblical standpoint, marriage is God’s idea for man’s own good and fulfilment.

It was stated: “And the LORD God said, it is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him” (Genesis 2:18). This shows clearly that whoever wants to get a good match of spouse should consult the Lord, the architect of marriage. Because marriage is the bedrock of life and society, the ferocious attacks by Satan and his cohorts against this divine institution are understandable.

To destroy a gigantic structure is not very difficult. All that is needed is to weaken its foundation and the damage is done. Any marriage arrangement that obviates monogamy is contrary to God’s will.

Polygamy, endogamy (group marriage), concubinage and other forms of aberration in marriage such as homosexuality, lesbianism and bestiality are against the will of God and those who engage in them have invited the wrath of God against themselves. That God provided Adam a mate shows His love, care and respect for him. Our heavenly Father is interested in how we sojourn here and who we want to share our lives with while serving Him.

He guided Abraham’s servant in the marital process and chose a wife for Isaac. As God led many others before now to marry aright, He is able to guide our young people and those who rely on Him to make the best choice in marriage for them. If you fall into the category of people looking up to Him for a life partner, pray, believe and leave the choice to Him. He will not fail you.

Thought For Today: Let God choose for you.
