TOPIC: GOD HATES BRIBERY AND CORRUPTION

SCRIPTURE: For the congregation of hypocrites shall be desolate, and fire shall consume the tabernacles of bribery. Job 15:34.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Any investment made from the proceeds of bribery has no future.

The Bible makes it clear that the love of money is the root of all evil (1 Timothy 6:10).

Many people today indulge in all sorts of evil practices as a result of the quest to make money by all means. People earn money through unimaginable and atrocious evil to make money.

Any money earned from evil practice is called evil money.
Now, one example of evil money is the proceeds of bribery.

The Bible mentions bribe by name throughout scriptures. Bribery is a form of inducement. It is giving people things in order to have your way.

To bribe someone, therefore, is to dishonestly persuade him or her to act in one’s favour using money or other kinds of gifts. It is a sinful practice. Both the briber and the bribed are both implicated in corruption.

When one partakes in bribery, money is either given or taken in order to have one’s way. There are people who expect you to give them money to do what they are being paid salary to do.

Job 15:34 says,
For the congregation of hypocrites shall be desolate, and fire shall consume the tabernacles of bribery.

That is to say any investment made from the proceeds of bribery has no future. The reason God consumes the tabernacle of bribery with fire is because He hates bribery.

In 1 Samuel 12:3, 4, Samuel gave a testimony about himself and said,
Behold, here I am: witness against me before the Lord, and before his anointed: whose ox have I taken? or whose ass have I taken? or whom have I defrauded? whom have I oppressed? or of whose hand have I received any bribe to blind mine eyes therewith? and I will restore it you.
And they said, Thou hast not defrauded us, nor oppressed us, neither hast thou taken ought of any man’s hand.
At the end, he prayed and thunder and fire fell.

Beloved, God hates bribery. Refuse bribery or all forms of forced inducement.

Remember this: Any investment made from the proceeds of bribery has no future.

ASSIGNMENTS:
1. Refuse bribery and all other forms of inducement.
2. Live a life of honesty and sincerity and you shall see the Blessing of God.

PRAYER: Lord, deliver me from the trap of evil money. I ask for the grace not to be involved in bribery or any form of inducement, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

FOR FURTHER UNDERSTANDING, GET THIS MESSAGE: THE TRAGEDY OF EVIL MONEY.

QUOTE: Someone collected bribe and got a share of corrupt money, not because he really needed that money; but he lacked the firmness of purpose to say, “I do not want it. I know it is not correct.” Culled from “WHO ARE YOU?” by Dr Paul Enenche.

DAILY BIBLE READING: Luke 13-15.

AMAZING FACT: Our brain is programmed to correct the inverted image formed on our retina by the convex eye lens. A new born baby sees the world upside down till its bran starts correcting it.

PROPHETIC WORD/DECLARATION: The Lord deliver you from every taste for iniquitous and insincere money in Jesus’ Name.
