TOPIC FOR TODAY: 29-8-21: The victory of the Cross

By Dr D.K Olukoya, General Overseer MFM worldwide


Memory verse
Matthew 16:24 – “Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.”

Fire Scripture
John 19:16-17

The cross of Jesus Christ is central to the Christian faith. The cross reveals to us the character of God: His love for lost sinners and His perfect sacrifice. If we want to grow in our love for God, which is the first and greatest commandment, then we must be growing to understand and appreciate the cross, which shows us His great love.

If we want to grow in godliness, we must grow in understanding the significance of the cross, which confronts the most prevalent and insidious of all sins, namely, pride. The cross was the altar on which the once-and-for-all sacrifice was made by Jesus.

It has no mercy for anyone. It does not negotiate with anybody. It has no time for your argument or your religion. No one has gone to the cross and come down alive. It is 100 per cent successful at killing.

One song says, “I have decided to follow Him.” If you want to follow Him, He says, you must first deny yourself. When you have done that, you are going to die on that cross. The cross is a sign of God’s heartbreak over a world that has gone astray. It is an instrument of death. That is why most obituaries carry its sign. Anyone who has visited a cemetery would see that the tombs have crosses on them.

The cross is an instrument of death and a symbol of death. It is a symbol of sacrifice. To take up the cross is to allow yourself to be a living sacrifice unto the Lord. There is no way you will be nailed to the cross and blood will not come out.

Just like the problem of man started with a tree in the Garden of Eden, the solution to the problem of man, too, took place on a tree, on the cross of Calvary. The necessity of the cross is that the cross is the terminating point of our Adamic nature.

It is the end of all the corruption of self. When you want to start a new life in God, the cross is the starting point. The gateway to enjoying life in the heavenlies is the cross. The deep secret is that the cross releases power to anyone who gets there. May the power, victory and blessings of the cross become your daily experience, in Jesus’ name.

Motivational Quote
It is not the finest wood that feeds the fire of divine love, but the wood of the Cross.

Prophetic Word
Receive the peace that the cross gives, in the name of Jesus

Old rugged cross

On a hill far away stood an old rugged
The emblem of suff’ring and shame;
And I love that old cross where the
dearest and best
For a world of lost sinners was slain.

So I’ll cherish the old rugged cross,
Till my trophies at last I lay down;
I will cling to the old rugged cross,
And exchange it some day for a crown.

Oh that old rugged cross, so despised
by the world,
Has a wondrous attraction for me;
For the dear Lamb of God left His
glory above
To bear it to dark Calvary.

In the old rugged cross, stained with
blood so divine,
A wondrous beauty I see;
For ’twas on that old cross Jesus
suffered and died
To pardon and sanctify me.s power?
Who like Thyself my guide and
stay can be?
Through cloud and sunshine, O
abide with me.


1. Any power that wants to pull me down from my mountain of power, die, in the name of Jesus.

2. Arrows of backsliding, backfire, in the name of Jesus.

3. Every ladder of darkness in my body, I kill you today, in the name of Jesus.

4. Every ladder of darkness in my life, die, in the name of Jesus.

5. Every ladder of darkness in my destiny, die, in the name of Jesus.

6. Magnet of affliction, release me and die, in the name of Jesus.

7. I hold the blood of Jesus as a shield against any power that is already poised to resist me, in the name of Jesus.
