Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? And what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? Or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? For ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you. And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty. (2 Corinthians 6:14-18)
The blessing of the Lord is more important than riches and wealth. The blessing of the Lord, it maketh rich and added he added no sorrows (Prov 10; 22). Being separated connects you with the reality of God’s intent on earth and the mandate He has given you.


1. It empowers you for Holy living (2 Corinthians 6:17).
2. It helps you to escape defilement and Spiritual Pollution (Ps. 119:1-3) when you separate yourself from worldliness and sinners automatically you are blessed and you will be delivered from defilement.
It is important that we know that many believers are not seeking the Lord with the whole of their heart, the bible says by their fruits you shall know them, by their actions, anyone who is giving to God completely you don’t need any prophet to tell you this
one is seeking God with the whole of his Heart, and when you seek God with the whole of your heart He will bless you in due season with the whole of his might. You won’t be able to work in the ways of the Lord until you see the need to separate yourself from worldliness.
3. It makes you harmless because there is nothing that will make you yearn for retaliation and vengeance. (it will deliver us from unnecessary Offences) Heb. 7:26 – the more you link up yourself with the ungodly, the ungodly have their own thought pattern which makes them misinterpret everything you say.
4. It helps you to maintain our righteousness and unction of the Spirit (Eccl. 9:8) it’s impossible to be in the midst of unbelievers and your garment will still be kept white, the little unction you have will evaporate. Separation will help you to keep and maintain your anointing; it will help you to maintain the righteousness of God given to you through Christ Jesus.
5. It help you to escape defilement and Spiritual Contamination (Heb. 7:26, 1Corn. 15:33)
6. It attracts God Blessings to you (Ps. 1:1) – the fact that you are not working in their counsel makes you to receive a measure of blessing. The life of a believer is made so simple for him/her, and how to attract God’s blessing is made very simple too, he says there’s a measure of blessing you receive as my children if you don’t take the counsel of the ungodly.
Another one is if you don’t stand in the ways of the sinners, How to stand; don’t do what they do, don’t acts the way the act, the last blessing as a believer is when you don’t seat in the seat of the scornful. So three blessings are cheaply release to you by not taking the counsel of the ungodly, by not standing, acting, and doing what they do.
MEDITATION: By the mercy of God through his words, I am delivered from evil pollution and contamination.
1. Oh Lord, deliver me from every unfriendly friend that wants to lead me to eternal destruction in Jesus name.
2. By the blood of Jesus, I cut off every evil hand and tongue manipulating me towards destruction.
FOR EXTRA DOSE, DWELL ON: Gal.2:12, Rom.1:1.
