DCLM Daily Manna 16 May 2019 Devotional by Pastor W.F Kumuyi

TOPIC: The Determination Of Hypocrites

TEXT: Luke 12:49-59
49. I am come to send fire on the earth; and what will I, if it be already kindled?

50. But I have a baptism to be baptized with; and how am I straitened till it be accomplished!

51. Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay; but rather division;

52. For from henceforth there shall be five in one house divided, three against two, and two against three.

53. The father shall be divided against the son, and the son against the father; the mother against the daughter, and the daughter against the mother; the mother in law against her daughter in law, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.

54. And he said also to the people, When ye see a cloud rise out of the west, straightway ye say, There cometh a shower; and so it is.

55. And when ye see the south wind blow, ye say, There will be heat; and it cometh to pass.

56. Ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky and of the earth; but how is it that ye do not discern this time?

57. Yea, and why even of yourselves judge ye not what is right?

58. When thou goest with thine adversary to the magistrate, as thou art in the way, give diligence that thou mayest be delivered from him; lest he hale thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and the officer cast thee into prison.

59. I tell thee, thou shalt not depart thence, till thou hast paid the very last mite.

MESSAGE: “Playing the Ostrich” and playing “hide and seek” are common English idiomatic expressions of hypocrisy. Like the ostrich which only hides its head in the dust with the tail in public gare, hypocrisy subjects its perpetrators to public ridicule and avoidable eternal regrets, if they remain impenitent till death.

In continuation of His teaching on vital issues of life, Christ rebuked sharply, His audience over their hypocrisy. In this regard, He told them pointedly that His ministry would automatically polarise the family into believers and unbelievers with the attendant persecution of the believer by unbelieving members of the same family.

DCLM Daily Manna 16 May 2019 – The Determination of Hypocrites

True to Christ’s prophetic teaching, many families today are parents, children and in-laws pitched in different religious persuasions and denominational camps. Likewise, while a lot of people today are quite versed in earthly knowledge, they are deficient in their grasp of the gospel, Christ’s Second Coming and the impending doom of this present world. Some people pretend to be saved and even preach Christ but they have a penchant for secret sins, in apparent self-endangered mockery of their profession of faith.

Some believers on the other hand, are suprised by their unbelieving relations’ repulsive dispositions towards them. They recoil, rather than rejoice in the face of persecution, seemingly forgetting the imminence of the rapture and the promised eternal heavenly blessings. They want the crown but detest the cross.

The believer must avoid every form of hypocrisy and accept persecution as an integral part of his calling. It is hypocrisy to receive the benefit of Calvary and reject its burden.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Hell is the final port for unrepentant hypocrites.

THE BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: 2 Corinthians 10-13
