The General overseer Mountain of fire and Miracle Ministries Worldwide, MFM, Dr. Daniel Olukoya says sins of men against God and constituted authority is responsible for weakness at the altar of prayer.
Dr. Olukoya stated this today at his Sunday sermon via Facebook.
The MFM General overseer who tagged his message ” Prayer Kwashiorkor from the book of Isaiah chapter 16 verse 12 described sin as prayer killer.
Dr. Olukoya who said sin makes God withdrew his hands from his children noted that only righteousness can put Christians right with God.
“As in the case of the children of Israel in this passage, the arrogance of man against God and lawfully constituted authority led to God’s anger and judgment over the people.”
“People say anything today against God and against the word of God. The Holy Scriptures injunctions, which are God’s commands, no longer matter before us. We query the validity of the word of God and equally deliberately act against it.”
Dr. Olukoya pointed out that there was need for mankind to have a change of heart from their wickedness and live a righteous life.
“All practices that would make us worship God we reject or abandon under the guise of fundamental human rights.”Dr Olukoya said.
“In some advanced nations, anything about God must not be mentioned in any public event neither can people worship God nor share the gospel with their neighbours.” he observed.
“Doing so is an offence. This pride and arrogance against God came because of advancement in technology.”
“We feel we can do many things without God and thus become ‘god’ to ourselves.”
“Technological advancement should make us to reference God the more because he is the revealer of knowledge.”If you don’t want God to stay off you, stay off sin, If you must keep God with you, keep sin off you.”
“Withdraw your hand from sin if you don’t want God’s hand withdrawn from your life.”he cautioned.
According to him “Don’t touch sin if you don’t want to be out of touch with God, It takes righteousness to put you right with God.You either love sin and hate God or love God and hate sin.”
“When Samson will not withdraw from sin God withdrew from Him, God infuses with those who refuse sin.”
“Hate sin to aim high.Sin is a weight, it hinders flight, the lighter you are in righteousness, the higher you fly in life.”Jos.7:10-13, Ex.19:11-14” he said.
“Living clean is living in mobility, Cleanliness is synonymous to godliness.Never toy with sin if you don’t want to end as a toy in satan’s hand.”
According to Dr Olukoya “Sanctification is the process of preparation for manifestation.”
