Back to chapter 7
What is the worse sin you have ever committed as a born again
Christian? Some of you have committed the sin of sexual immorality
in the past. Have you ever murdered someone as a Christian? What is
the worse sin you have ever committed? King David as a believer
committed both of the above sins. Yet despite this, God said about
David that he was a man after His own heart who would do all his
If David committed the sins mentioned above, then
how could God make such a statement about David. Well, obviously it
was not because David was the perfect believer or because he never
blew it as grossly as is possible to blow it. God said this about
David because no matter how bad he blew it, or how far at times he
got away from God, he never stopped trying to live for God.
David never allowed the sins of yesterday to keep him from doing the
will of God today.
Some of you think your sins of the past are so
bad that God can never forgive you or use your life again. But what
does the Bible tell us about what became of David because of the
grossness of his sin of committing adultery with Bathsheba and
killing her husband Uriah?123 First, David repented of
his sin. After God pointed out to David through the prophet Nathan
that his sins did not go unnoticed, David said, "I have sinned
against the Lord." Nathan then said to David after he acknowledged
his sin to God and man, "The Lord also has taken away your sin."124
God forgave David for his sins. Godís plan for
David did not change. He was still called to be King over Israel.
God did, however, still have to discipline David for his sin. Why?
Because David had gotten lacks in his relationship with God. He
started making decisions without seeking the counsel of God first.
Israel was at war at the time, but instead of
David being with his men on the front line, he was instead
day-dreaming on the roof of his palace where he was open to Satanís
temptations. He had stopped seeking God about how he should be using
his time and life. So, yes, God had to re-discipline David so he
would only act out of Godís initiative and not his own. Only a
man who only acts out of Godís initiative in obedience to Godís Word
can rule Godís people justly. David had to learn to only use his
time as God was leading him and be diligent in his service to God,
but Godís plan for his life had not changed. Godís plan for David
was still to be King over Israel.
Several years ago, 1975, God told me to do
something with my life and I did not obey Him. I was a good
Christian from appearance sake. I went to church, I read my Bible
daily, I shared my faith with others whether they wanted to hear it
or not, I wasnít doing anything immoral, but I did not do at the
time with my life what God wanted me to do. I disobeyed Him. The
Prophet Samuel said as Godís spokesman that "Rebellion is as the sin
of divination, and insubordination is as iniquity and idolatry."125
The Bible puts rebellion right up there with witchcraft, adultery,
fornication and murder. Many Christians today try to convince
themselves they are okay, I go to church and Sunday School. I pay
my tithes regularly. The only thing they do not do is what God
wants them to do with their lives.
That was the condition I was in. I was religious,
but not doing with my life at the time what God was calling me to
do. This is what Jesus was talking about when he said, "Not everyone
who says to Me, "Lord,
Lord," will enter the Kingdom of Heaven; but he
who does the will of My Father who is in heaven."126
During this time God asked me to do something in relation to where
he wanted me to live at the time. He was asking me to move into an
unpleasant situation. It wasnít that I did not want to obey God, I
just couldnít get over some of the fears about it I was having at
When I did not obey what God wanted me to do in
this matter, everything in my life came to a stand still. I could
not succeed in school no matter how hard I tried. I finally dropped
out of school, borrowed some money and went into a gardening
I had had a gardening business before and had
made good money at it, but what normally took me forty-five minutes
to do was now taking me three hours and there was no logical reason
for it. This went on for four months until I was deeper in the hole
than when I started.
One day I was sitting in a restaurant eating
lunch and reading the Bible when I read the following verse:
Psalm 103:12 "As
far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our
transgressions from us."127 I prayed to myself, Jesus,
what does this passage really mean? He answered back to me
through the Holy Spirit,
Dale, when you confess your sin, not only do I
forgive you for your sin, but I remove it infinitely from before me
so that the way I relate to you is just as if you had never
committed the sin in the first place.
In other words, even though I had not obeyed him
and temporarily this brought his will and plan for my life to a
stand still, His will for my life did not change. What I needed to
do was confess my disobedience and go back and do what he had called
me to do. The Apostle Paul wrote about love in
1 Corinthians 13:5
that love "does not take into account a wrong suffered." In
other words, Godís relating to us and His plan for our lives is not
effected by offenses of the past when once confessed and repented
of. Godís plan for our lives remains the same.
I came to realize that God loved me, that He
forgave me and that He was just waiting for me to repent and do with
my life what He was calling me to do. I did obey Him and go back and
do what He had told me to do. Jesus, talking through the Apostle
Revelation 3:2-3 "Wake up, and
strengthen the things that remain, which were about to die; for I
have not found your deeds completed in the sight of My God. Remember
therefore what you have received and heard; and keep it, and
Some of you think that you have so blown it in
the past that God can no longer use you or wants to use your life.
Godís love for you never changes. It is a matter of you turning back
to Him. Because His plan for your life never changes, He is waiting
for you to not only return to Him, but to fulfill what He has called
you to do in the first place. He is not interested in your failures
of the past. Iíve got news for you. It wonít be the last time.
He wants you to accept His forgiveness and to forgive yourself
and to stop letting the sins of yesterday keep you from doing His
will today. He loves you. Jesus was already punished for
your sins. Every time you use your past failures as an excuse
to not do Godís will today, you rob Jesus of what he suffered for
you on the cross. Jesus loves you. He forgives you. He is
waiting for you to return to Him so He can continue His plan and
purpose for your life.
Confess Your Sins
How do you return to Him?
First, confess your sin or
sins to Jesus and accept His forgiveness as an automatic fact
according to 1 John 1:9 which states, "If we confess our
sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to
cleanse us from all unrighteousness."
Resurrender to Jesus as Lord
you then need to resurrender to Jesus as Lord, remake Him
Lord of your life. Just pray,
Jesus, I resurrender the Lordship of my life
to You and ask You to refill me with Your Holy Spirit, to retake
control of my life and to continue to lead me into Your will and
plan for my life. By faith thank You that it is done according to
Your promise to answer any prayer that is according to Your will, in
Your name, Jesus, amen.
Accept that He has by faith, not by feelings,
because He promises to answer any prayer that is according to His
will, and according to
Ephesians 5:18 and
1 John 5:14-15
it is His will that you allow Him to be Lord of your life.
of Your Sins
you need to repent of your sins and cry to Jesus for his deliverance
from the power of these sins over your soul and flesh. You
need to either stop doing what He doesnít want you to do or go back
and do what He has called you to do. You need to stop letting the
sins of yesterday keep you from doing the will of God today. You
need to stop using the sins of yesterday as an excuse to not do
Godís will today. In light of Godís forgiveness, it is not an excuse
according to His Word.
Secondly, You need to get down on Your knees and
cry to Jesus for his deliverance from the power of these sins over
your soul and flesh. Until the resurrection, our soul and flesh are
still corrupted by sin and under the power of sin. You cannot
overcome sins power through will power. This is because your will,
your volition is your soul and your soul is under the power of sin.
Paul wrote in Romans 7:14
"For we know that the Law is spiritual; but I am of flesh, sold into
bondage to sin." For this reason Paul wrote in
"Finally, be strong in the Lord, and in the strength of His might"
The writer of 1 Chronicles
16:11 and Psalm
105:4 wrote, "Seek Yehovah and His strength; seek His
face continually.". When you are having a repetitious problem with
sin, you need to do more than just confess your sin and thank Jesus
for his forgiveness, you need to also get down on your knees and cry
to Him for His deliverance from the power of that sin over your soul
and flesh. Jesus promises us in
2 Thessalonians 3:3 "But the Lord is faithful, and He
will strengthen and protect you from the evil one."
Depending on what your propensity to sin is, you
will find that no matter how long you are a Christian, you will need
to do this regularly. I have sin problems I have struggled with for
as long as I have been a Christian: 43 years. I find that I need to
at least once a week get down on my knees and cry out to Jesus for
His deliverance from the power of these sins.
Remove Objects of Temptation
remove any objects or things which tempted you and led you to sin in
the first place. Demonic forces attach themselves to the
unclean objects through which you were tempted to sin in the first
place. The presence of these objects will keep you from having
victory over sins confessed and repented of. Until the resurrection
and transformation of our souls and bodies, the power of sin remains
over us especially through these unclean objects. (Deut 7:25-26, 1
Cor 10:19-20, Exodus 32:19-20)
Some obvious examples of objects through which
Satan has access to our souls and flesh are porno magazines, liquor,
unclean videos and music CDís, satanic cult games and books,
astrology books and prediction charts, etcetera. What ever these
objects are that relate to the weakness of your soul and flesh,
stimulate and energize your soul and flesh to sin and keep you in
bondage to those sins. You will have to pray and ask the Lord to
make plain to you what these objects are. When you know, remove
them. Paul wrote in 1
Thessalonians 5:22, "Abstain from every form of evil."
When Jesus returns to the earth, Peter in
2 Peter 3:10 tells
us the first thing Jesus will do is burn up the earth and its works
"But the day of the Lord will come like a thief,
in which the heavens will pass away with a roar and the elements
will be destroyed with intense heat, and the earth and its works
will be burned up."
This is because the works of godless men made in
the earth encourage and stimulate manís soul and flesh to draw away
from God and to sin. Therefore, when Jesus returns, His first
priority of importance is to remove these objects of stumbling from
man and heavenís presence. In light of this, Peter concludes in
2 Peter 3:11-12,
"Since all these things are to be destroyed in
this way, what sort of people ought you to be in holy conduct and
godliness, looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God,
on account of which the heavens will be destroyed by burning, and
the elements will melt with intense heat!"
Spirits to Leave
bind and command to leave any unclean spirits related to your sins
confessed and repented of. Solomon wrote in
"He who digs a pit will fall into it, and whoever breaks a hedge a
serpent will bite him." Satan has no power over us other than the
power we give him through sin. Paul wrote in
Ephesians 6:12 "For
our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers,
against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness,
against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places."
We have problems with sin in certain areas because this is the
propensity of our soul and flesh. Satan knows this and so he assigns
demonic forces to hound, harass and tempt us in these areas of our
soul and flesh. When we finally give into these demonic temptations
and then surrender our soul and flesh to sin, it then results in the
attachment of these unclean spirits who make sure we stay in bondage
to these sins.
This is why, first, we need to cry to Jesus for
his deliverance from the power of sin over our soul and flesh. But
then, second, we need to also exercise our authority as believers to
bind the unclean spirits which have attached themselves to us as a
result of our sin and command them in the name of Jesus Christ of
Nazareth to leave and never come back. When you do this they have to
leave because Jesus gave us complete authority over unclean spirits.
Jesus said in Luke 10:19
"Behold, I have given you authority over all the power of the enemy
and to tread upon serpents and scorpions, and nothing shall injure
you." However, this authority is only available to you if you have
taken the first four steps of confessing your sins, resurrending to
Jesus as Lord, and repenting of your sins with the help of Jesus
Strength and power which includes cleansing your life of any objects
through which Satan has tempted you to sin in the first place.
James, the brother of Jesus, writes in the book of
"Submit therefore to God. Resist the devil and he
will flee from you. Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.
Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-souled."
To be completely free of demonic influence,
harassment and control, You must sit down and write down every known
sin of your past asking the Holy Spirit to help you remember;
especially any involvement with the occult in the past; any sexual
sins of the past; and any sins of inheritance, sins of your fathers
which has led to demonic influence in your life through your blood
You need to confess them to God one by one
receiving Godís forgiveness and cleansing of them by faith through
Jesusí death and shed blood on the cross. The only basis for
deliverance from oppression, harassment and possession is true
Confessing our Sins to God, 2)
Making right our wrongs confessed, 3)
And then bringing forth fruit, continued changed behavior, in
keeping with Repentance (Matt
3:1-12, Luke 1:1-14,
Acts 26:20). If you
do not do this, you will have no authority over unclean spirits and
they will not go away.
Once you have confessed and repented of your
sins, the next step is to then verbally outloud denounce Satan in
Jesusí name in relation to any occult involvement however innocent.
This would involve things like going to psychics or sťances, using
Ouiji boards, having your fortune told, the practice of casting
spells or incantations of any kind. These are all occult practices (Deut
18:10-13). If you have done any of these, these are
doorways to demonic influence and even possession. You must confess
them to God, apply Jesusí blood and then verbally denounce Satan for
each one of them.
Next, you need to then bind any unclean spirits
related to each sin confessed and in Jesusí name command them to be
gone from you forever. You then by faith must accept that they are
gone according to Jesusí promise in
Luke 10:19. You
must accept this by faith, not as a feeling. Paul wrote in
2 Corinthians 5:7
"For we walk by faith, not by appearance." Godís word is our
authority, not what we feel. You must accept the truthfulness of
Godís promises in His Word regardless of how you feel and believe by
faith they are gone. Joshua wrote in
Joshua 21:45 "Not
one of the good promises which Yehovah had made to the house of
Israel failed; all came to pass." Pray like this:
In Jesusí name Satan I bind you, I bind you
hindering forces, I bind you spirits of the prince of the air, I
bind you evil forces; In Jesusí name I bind you. . . (name the
specific unclean spirits related to each sin confessed). I command
you all to take your hands off of my life, off of my home, off of my
family and everyone else who lives here, off of my place of
employment and fellow employees. In Jesusí name and His shed blood I
command you to be gone forever! You shall not come back in Jesus
Christ of Nazarethís name, amen.
In the previous Chapter under the subtitle "How
to Stay Free of Sin" I explain how to stay free of sin once it is
confessed and repented of. You need to read this if you have not
already and Chapter 9 in this Section titled How to Stay
Clean of Unclean
Spirits. For a more in depth
study of what we have just discussed about deliverance out of the
occult, I strongly recommend and urge you to get and read Rebecca
Brownís book titled
Becoming a Vessel
Anoint Your Home and
anoint your home and place of work with oil, Jesusí blood, His
Mighty Warrior angels and the overshadowing power and protection of
the Holy Spirit and declare them holy unto the Lord. Once
you anoint your home and place of work, these unclean spirits will
not be able to come on your property or place of employment. It will
be off limits to them. You will be amazed at the difference in your
home and place of work. You will be at peace, your mind will be
quiet. I have found it best to do this at least once a day and any
time you leave your home and come back.
Whenever I am visiting a friend and staying in
their home, without them knowing about it, I will go around the home
once a day and anoint it and pray the way I am going to show you
below. After a few days, they will come home from work and do their
normal activities. Finally, they will sit down to drink their coffee
or whatever the case may be. Then they will look around and say,
Dale, it has been so peaceful here the past few days. I have never
felt this relaxed in my home before. I then go on to tell them
that I have been daily anointing their home and cleansing it of
unclean spirits. They are sold. They want to know how to do it
themselves and do it from that point on.
To anoint your house or place of work, do the
following: take a drop of oil and walk around the outside of your
house and anoint every door, window and opening with the oil. If it
is your place of work or an upper story apartment, anoint the doors,
windows and openings from the inside. As you do, pray the following:
Heavenly Father, Lord Jesus Christ, Holy
Spirit: We declare our spirit, soul, and body, and heart, mind and
emotions and material things and this home (home, office, apartment)
holy unto You and ask that you would cleanse us and this home of
every unclean spirit and every human spirit (Satanists
astroprojecting) that do not belong here.
In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth we
bind you Satan, we bind you hindering spirits, we bind you spirits
of the prince of the air we bind you evil forces and all unclean
spirits (and any spirits by name that are particularly troublesome
to you) and human spirits. We command you to take your hands off of
our spirit, soul, and body; and heart, mind and emotion and material
things, ourselves, our pets and this home and off of our fellow
employees and place of employment. We send you to Jesus to do with
you as He wills. You are not to return in Jesus Christ of Nazarethís
Lord Jesus, we pray for your anointing, power and
Holy Spirit upon us and our home and place of work and ask that You
would fill us and this home full of Your Holy Spirit and the fruit
of the Holy Spirit of love, joy and peace; and that You would seal
us and the doors and windows with Your blood; and that You would
send legions of Your mighty warrior angels to surround and protect
us from any attack or onslaught of the enemy whether in spiritual or
physical form. We pray also for the overshadowing power and
protection of Your Holy Spirit in Jesus Christ of Nazarethís amen.
When the Lord first taught me about the
importance of anointing my home, I immediately experienced relief
from harassments I had taken for granted because I had not known
such peace in my home before. But some harassments still followed.
After much prayer about it, the Lord showed me I also needed to pray
for the covering and protection of his blood. John wrote in
"And they overcame him because of the blood of
the Lamb and because of the word of their testimony, and they did
not love their life even to death."
From that point on I also anointed these places
by faith with His blood.
David wrote in
Psalm 34:7, "The angel of Yehovah encamps around those
who fear Him and rescues them." The importance of praying for the
surrounded covering of the angels has to do with protecting
ourselves from Satanists, living humans who worship and serve Satan,
who Satan commands to astroproject and attack in spirit whoever he
wishes. We have authority over demonic spirits, but we have no
authority over human spirits. How then do we protect ourselves from
satanic human spirits astroprojecting? Through anointing ourselves
and home with Jesusí blood and by asking for the surrounded covering
and protection of Godís mighty warrior angels. The human spirits
cannot get past the angels or the blood of Jesus. Once I added this
to my anointing of my home and those in it, the rest of the
harassment stopped and I had peace.
The only time now when I am harassed is when I or
someone I am living with has given Satan ground to come in through
sin. The solution then is to go through the above six steps all over
Finally, Pray for the overshadowing power and
protection of the Holy Spirit. God says in His word,
2 Thessalonians 3:3 "But the Lord is
faithful, and He will strengthen and protect you from the evil one"
Acts 5:32 "And we are witnesses of
these things; and so is the Holy Spirit, whom God has given to those
who obey Him."
Put on the Full Armor of God
reclaim the full armor of God. The Apostle Paul in
after telling us that our struggle is not against flesh and blood,
but against satanic forces, then tells us to put on the full armor
of God. He wrote,
"Therefore, take up the full armor of God, that
you may be able to resist in the evil day, and having done
everything, to stand firm. Stand firm therefore, having girded your
loins with truth, and having put on the breastplate of
righteousness, and having shod your feet with the preparation of the
Gospel of peace; in addition to all, taking up the shield of faith
with which you will be able to extinguish all the flaming missiles
of the evil one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of
the Spirit, which is the word of God. With all prayer and petition
pray at all times in the Spirit, and with this in view, be on the
alert with all perseverance and petition for all the saints."
Paul tells us in this passage to:
To gird our loins with truth
To put on the breastplate of righteousness
To shod our feet with the preparation of the
Gospel of peace (Evangelism training)
To take up the shield of faith
To put on the helmet of Salvation (Gained
through a knowledge of the Word of God)
And the sword of the Spirit which is the Word
of God (Daily Read the word)
Finally, to pray at all times in the spirit
The armor of God is real. It is part of the
spiritual realm. It is for the protection of our human spirits
against Satanís, a spiritual being, attack against our human spirit.
When we pray and ask God to put on our spiritual armor, He does and
our spirit is protected from Satanís attacks against our spirit.
This is also something we need to do once a day. I daily pray the
Heavenly Father I pray for the full armor of
God: the helmet of salvation, the breastplate of righteousness, the
shield of faith by which I will be able to extinguish all the
flaming missiles of the evil one, the belt of truth, that you would
shod my feet with the preparation of the Gospel of peace, the
sword of the spirit which is Your Word and for Your grace to pray in
the spirit continually.
I then add:
I ask also that you would grant me the crosses
you want me to bear and I give you permission to use my spirit in
I ask God to use my spirit in spiritual warfare
meaning to do warfare for others in the spiritual realm. This is
what happens when you pray for someoneís needs. God then takes your
spirit and does battle with the demonic forces that are hindering
this person from getting their needs met or releasing their faith in
Jesus. This is why you find your self drained and tired after
pouring out your heart to God for someone. It is because Your spirit
has been involved in heavy battle against spiritual forces in the
heavenly places. This is why it is so important to daily put on the
full armor of God. In the Book of
Daniel 7:12-13 Daniel tells us that after praying over
a matter for twenty-one days that an angel appeared to him and
explained the following to him:
"Do not be afraid, Daniel, for from the first day
that you set your heart on understanding this and on humbling
yourself before your God, your words were heard, and I have come in
response to your words. But the prince of the kingdom of Persia was
withstanding me for twenty-one days; then behold, Michael, one of
the chief princes, came to help me, for I had been left there with
the kings of Persia."
These princes and kings of Persia were demons
assigned by Satan over this part of the earth to control this
territory. God heard Danielís prayer from the start, but the answer
God was sending was being opposed by these demonic forces in the
spiritual realm. Danielís continued prayer was what gave these
angels the strength to overcome the opposition and be able to
deliver the answer he prayed for. The obvious lesson in this story
is to keep praying until you get the answers you need. It is also a
reinforcement of why you need to daily put on the full armor of God.
I find that when I am troubled in spirit, fearful
for some reason that praying in the spirit, in tongues, settles my
spirit and puts me at peace. Praying in the spirit is the Holy
Spirit praying through our spirit for exactly what we need. See
Chapter 2 in this Section which explains
this in detail.
you need to realize that Jesus does forgive you and has forgotten
the past. You have to accept this by faith based on His Word
not your feelings. Remember that part of your armor is the helmet
of salvation which is Godís Word. Godís word states that the
moment you confess your sin Jesus forgives you. When Satan attacks
you with false condemnation and guilt, your only weapon against his
accusations is the truth of Godís Word. You need to quote the word
of God to Satan and command him to leave.
In Jesusí name, Satan, Godís Word declares,
"If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us
our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness." God also says
in his word, "as far as the east is from the west, so far has He
removed my transgression from me." Finally, God says in his Word,
"Do not bring to mind the former things or ponder things of the
past." According to His word and His commands in Jesusí name I bind
your mouth, you shall not bring my past sins to my memory anymore.
In Jesus Christ of Nazarethís name I bind you and command you to be
Jesus, I declare my mind and heart holy unto You
and ask You to anoint them with Your blood and to surround them with
Your mighty holy angels and to protect them from any further attack
of Satan in Jesus Christ of Nazarethís name, amen.
As you stand on Godís Word and resist Satanís
attacks, Godís Word promises that Satan will leave you. The book of
Job, talking about Godís discipline in our lives, tells us that as
we resist the attack of these demonic forces that they will leave us
and be at peace with us. Basically they will go find someone they
can successfully harass. Job
5:17, 21-24 states,
"Behold, how happy is the man whom God reproves,
So do not despise the discipline of the Almighty. For He inflicts
pain, and gives relief; He wounds, and His hands also heal. From six
troubles He will deliver you, even in seven evil will not touch you.
In famine He will redeem you from death, and in war from the power
of the sword. You will be hidden from the scourge of the tongue,
neither will you be afraid of violence when it comes. You will laugh
at violence and famine, neither will you be afraid of wild
beasts. For you will be in league with the stones of the field; and
the beasts of the field will be at peace with you. And you
will know that your tent is secure, for you will visit your abode
and fear no loss."
Love and Forgive Yourself
love and forgive yourself. Many times even though Jesus has
forgiven us it is hard for us to forgive ourselves. Love is not an
emotion. It is a decision of the will. You just have to ignore your
feelings and make a decision of your will to love yourself and stand
on Godís Word and tell yourself that you are going to love yourself
as Jesus loves you.116
Jesus did not feel like going to the cross. The
Bible tells us that He was in so much agony about his coming trial
that he sweat blood (Luke 22:44). He said to God the Father,
"Father, if You are willing, remove this cup from Me; yet not My
will, but Your will be done" (Luke 22:42). Jesus made a decision of
his will, a decision of love, to go against his feelings and die on
the cross for our sins. You must make a decision of your will, a
decision of love, to go against your feelings and love and forgive
yourself. As you do, in time your feelings will surrender and
complement what is true in Godís Word.
When you do not forgive yourself, you place
yourself above God. If God forgives you, who are you to hold a
grudge against yourself, or is it just an excuse to not let God do
in and with your life what he wants to in the first place. In fact
Godís Word commands you to not even bring to your mind the things of
the past. You are to block them out of your mind and not recall
them. He does. He says as far as the east is from the west so far
has He removed our transgressions from us. He commands you in
Isaiah 43:18 "Do
not call to mind the former things, or ponder things of the past."
In essence God says to you, I have removed it
from My memory and so I command you to do the same.
You need to do the same for others who have
wronged you. You need to forgive them, block out of your mind what
they did to you, not call it to mind, and then relate to them just
as if they never sinned in the first place. Peter asked Jesus,
Matthew 18:21-22 "ĎAdonai, how often
shall my brother sin against me and I forgive him? Up to seven
times?í Jesus said to him, ĎI do not say to you, up to seven times,
but up to seventy times seven.í"
Jesus wasnít limiting it to seventy times seven,
He was saying, forgive him as many times as it takes. Jesus does
In review, when you get out of Jesusí will and
plan for Your life, the way to get back into His will and plan for
Your life is by doing the following nine steps:
First, confess your sin or sins to Jesus and
accept his forgiveness as an automatic fact according to
1 John 1:9.
Second, you then need to resurrender to Jesus
Third, you need to repent of your sins and
cry to Jesus for his deliverance from the power of these sins
over your soul and flesh.
Fourth, remove any objects or things which
tempted you and led you to sin in the first place.
Fifth, bind and command to leave any unclean
spirits related to your sins confessed and repented of.
Sixth, anoint your home, place of work, and
yourself with oil and ask Jesus to cover you and your home with
His blood, surround you with His mighty warrior angels and
overshadow you with the power of the Holy Spirit and declare
them holy unto the Lord.
Seventh, reclaim the full armor of God.
Eighth, you need to realize that Jesus does
forgive you and has forgotten the past.
Ninth, love and forgive yourself.
Forget the past and stop letting the sins of yesterday keep you
from doing Godís will today.
Jesus really loves you and really has forgotten
your past and removed it from Himself and His memory. His will for
your life has not changed. His plan for you is the same yesterday,
today, and forever.128 Now go
