Spiritual Warfare Skill – Repentance

We ALL sin in our thoughts, hearts [Spirit-God’s Temple], what we look at, what we say, do or continue to fail to do; these could be deliberate or unknown to ourselves. Is it pride, holding grudges, holding  pain of the past- unforgiveness ,jealousy, hatred, accepting things of this world – such as ‘immoral relationships’ and ‘immoral wedlock’, watching pornography, indulge in masturbation, committed murder which includes ‘deliberate abortion’. The Holy Scriptures tells us in 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 that, ”Or don’t you know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Don’t be deceived! The sexually immoral, idolaters, adulterers, those who practice homosexuality,  thieves, the greedy, drunkards, slanderers, swindlers—none of these will inherit the kingdom of God”. May be you ‘talk too much’, have quick temper or anger, tell lies, show no love to people around you; self-declared pastor , evangelist or prophet for selfish reasons; modern day Idol worshiping– such as love for money, sex, Internet/technology addiction ,drug and alcoholism – idolising human, such as manager at work, pastors, priests, prophets, wife’s, husbands and even our children just to name a few. Isaiah 2:22 tells us that, Stop trusting in mere humans [mankind] , who have but a breath in their nostrils. Why hold them in esteem? Repent and confess your sins or you will be overwhelmed in your ‘everyday battle’. Cleansing begins with confessing. The Bible also tells us in 1 John 1:8‭-‬10 that, ”If we say we have no sin, we are deceiving ourselves and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, HE is faithful and righteous to forgive our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. If we say we have not sinned, we make Him a liar and His word is not in us. Brothers and sisters take a moment and identify your weakness by reflection after reading the Holy Scriptures according to, 1 Timothy 1:3-17. 

Repentance is simply striving to stop or stay away from sin. Without repentance by confession, your sins will not be forgiven by ADONAI our Father in Heaven. Where there’s sin, the Holy Spirit is ‘grieved’, is like bad WIFI or internet connection. In a war zone, you need radios, satellite and various system’s to be able to communicate effectively with command and control. Brothers and sisters, how do you communicate [pray] -without connection [Holy Spirit] through our Messiah-Jesus Christ [Yeshua] to the Father ADONAI-Elohim [GOD] who has total Power, Command and Control over your life? Yeshua told us in John 16:7-8 that , … it is for our advantage HE returns to the God, the Holy Spirit [Ruach ha-Kodesh]- The Helper, will not come to us; but if HE goes, HE will send the Holy Spirit to us ; however, when Holy Spirit comes, He will convict the world about sin, righteousness and judgment. In a nutshell with bad connection or no connection to communicate in a battlefield one is in danger! Ephesians 4:30-32 also reminds us that, ”Do not grieve the Ruach ha-Kodesh of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. Get rid of all bitterness and rage and anger and quarreling and slander, along with all malice.  Instead, be kind to one another, compassionate, forgiving each other just as God in Messiah also forgave you.”

Our commander in chief Yeshua connects and communicate with us by the Holy Spirit in all our battles; It is written in John 14:26 that, ”But the Helper, the Ruach ha-Kodesh whom the Father will send in My name, will teach you everything and remind you of everything that I said to you” . If your prayers fail to bear ‘fruit’ [answered], it might not only be because of the WILL of GOD; but due to the fact one is still living in sin and not doing anything about it. Matthew 3:8, tells us that, ”Therefore produce fruit worthy of repentance”. Jesus Christ knows that we are ALL weak and ready to help if only we turn to HIM willingly with repentance. The Bible says in 1 Corinthians 10:13 that ‘no temptation has taken hold of you except what is common to mankind. But God is faithful; HE will not allow you be tempted beyond what you can handle. But with temptation He will also provide a way of escape, so you will be able to endure it”. There is no sin that cannot be forgiven by our Father Adonia Elohim [remember King David, Moses and others], so why are you listening to the enemy (satan) that, your sin’s can not be forgiven? If you find it difficult to repent of your sins due to association – ‘delete them off your phones right now’, keep these people at a distance and cut ties! – our commander in chief said in Matthew 5:30 that, “And if your right hand causes you to stumble, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to go into hell [Gehenna]. 

Personally, I struggled for years with the weakness of lust; I have tested repentance by doing all I could to stay away from fleshly desires; Yeshua saw all my efforts and reached out to Help me; by HIS abundant grace, He delivered me from the bondage of lust .With the abundant Love from Jesus Christ, HE ‘turned all my scars in my battles to Stars’. All you need is Trust, Believe and have Faith in our Lord Yeshua to come and rescue you. Repentance is playing our part where forgiveness is GOD’s reaction for our effort. God told Abraham my name is I AM WHO I AM in Exodus 3:14- The God we serve is a God of Now, He Acts Now, He Forgives Now, He Delivers Now- So stay away from sin Now. Are your circumstances like hell right now? The simple answer is repent and stay connected with Jesus Christ- Yeshua the Messiah, for by HIS blood shed on the cross our sins are forgiven. When Jesus Christ rose from the dead we rose together with HIM in Victory. However, don’t be deceived that by HIS blood you have the licence to stay in sin or continue to sin. Judgment awaits one who deliberately continues to sin. You can only be victorious in the battles you face right now by staying connected with Jesus Christ [Yeshua] with the Help of Ruach ha-Kodesh; 1 Corinthians 2:16 tells us that for,“Who has known the mind of the Lord-ADONAI, that he will instruct him?” But we have the mind of Messiah-Our commander in Chief. Jesus Christ said in John 15:5 that, ‘ I am the vine; your are the branches. The one who remains in me and I in him produces much fruit, because you can do nothing without me.

Prayer   

Sin power over your life be broken as your spirit connects with the truth today in Jesus Christ [Yeshua] name I pray. Amen

Accepting Yeshua [Jesus Christ] in your heart

There is a Promise in the Holy Scriptures at John 3:16, ‘For God so loved the world, that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life’ .

Jesus Christ foretold the ‘signs of the end of time’ in Matthew 24, …the Good News of the kingdom shall be proclaimed in the the whole world as a testimony to all nations and then the end will come.

All you have to do now is accept YESHUA– Jesus Christ as your Messiah in your heart; and if you do this willingly this day at this very hour, you will be saved just like the criminal on the cross with Jesus Christ in Luke 23:42-43, ”And he said, “Yeshua, remember me when You come into Your kingdom.”Yeshua said to him, “Amen, I tell you, today you shall be with Me in Paradise.” There is no true loving parent that will lock their door in the middle of the night to a rebellious child. They either wait for them to come back or go out looking for them. So what do expect Our Loving Father HaShem to do? The door to come back into the kingdom of God is open for you. Yeshua is the only way to the Father. Is never too late to be saved and there is no sin ever committed that, God can not forgive, if you willingly come to HIM with repentance.

Now tell someone you have accepted Jesus Christ as your personal saviour today; Jesus Christ called everyone to Himself publicly.

Yeshua is the Lion of the tribe of Judah that was slain for all your sins and with HIM you will face no judgement on the last day, no matter your religion, gender, race or believe. The Holy Scriptures of Revelation 5 promises us that, by Yeshua’s blood shed on the cross we are all saved. Just believe…

God bless you, Amen Amen Amen.
