TOPIC: Speaking Against Wicked Arrows (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Daily Devotional 22 September 2020)
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: 1 Chronicles 24-25
FIRE SCRIPTURE: Psalm 58:3-8 (KJV)
3 The wicked are estranged from the womb: they go astray as soon as they be born, speaking lies.
4 Their poison is like the poison of a serpent: they are like the deaf adder that stoppeth her ear;
5 Which will not hearken to the voice of charmers, charming never so wisely.
6 Break their teeth, O God, in their mouth: break out the great teeth of the young lions, O LORD.
7 Let them melt away as waters which run continually: when he bendeth his bow to shoot his arrows, let them be as cut in pieces.
8 As a snail which melteth, let every one of them pass away: like the untimely birth of a woman, that they may not see the sun.
MEMORY VERSE: “Surely the serpent will bite without enchantment; and a babbler is no better.” – Ecclesiastes 10:11

PROPHETIC WORD FOR TODAY:

There is a dangerous trend in these last days. Wicked arrows are flying here and there
Casualties are legion.
Let me share just one example with you. I know a man who went to a party in town in a West African country. He would have done himself a lot of good had he stayed at home to pray with his wife and children. He did not do this; rather, he went to the party and sat down. When he was served food, his was the last to be served. However, as his food was put on the table, he suddenly saw, from the corner of his eyes, a snake crawling towards him from the same house where his food was brought. He tried to run. But the more he tried, the more his legs were glued to the ground and he couldn’t scream too. His heart was beating fast, as the snake came crawling to his table. No one else, except him, saw the snake. The snake climbed up and coiled itself round his body and finally spit some poison into the man’s mouth and then crawled back into the house again. It was only then that he opened his eyes and regained consciousness. The question is, who sent him there? If he had stayed at home, he would have avoided the misfortune.
Psalm 91 spoke of “the arrows that fly by the day” and “the destructions that wasteth by night”, seeking whom to devour. If then you just keep roaming about and you are the unserious kind of believer who will go and be serving rice at unbelievers’ parties, or even sweat to cook the food for them, when the arrows are flying about, you will be easily located and then problems will come.
The lesson we ought to learn in today’s passage is that the enemy does not just fire empty arrows. Their arrows are laced with poisonous substances. Poisons are used by the enemy to steal, kill and destroy. Beware!
- I loose myself from every hold of the serpent, in the name of Jesus.
- Every poison of the serpent in my life, come out, in the name of Jesus.
- Every egg of the serpent in the vessel of my life, be smashed to pieces by the hammer of fire, in Jesus’ name.
- Every property of the serpent in my possession, vanish to return no more, in the name of Jesus.
- Let the resting place of the serpent in my life receive the unbearable heat of the Almighty, in the name of Jesus.
- Let the strong room of the serpent in my life be destroyed by the fire of God, in the name of Jesus.
- You, the head of the serpent, be smashed to pieces by the Holy Ghost fire, in the name of Jesus.
