Bear fruits in keeping with repentance

Living a fruitless life of spiritual deception and bondage is not God’s will for you or me. Matthew 3:8 (ESV) Bear fruit in keeping with repentance

God is love and He didn’t come to condemn the world but to save it. John 3:17 (NIV) For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him

Our actions expose us to the accuser of human conscience, the devil, who we befriend and partner with but he ends up throwing us under the bus. We are then subjected to the pressure of feeling condemned or inadequate.

The devil comes in all forms with an aim of establishing a stronghold in our emotions and make us prisoners of his will. He traps us in a cycle of spiritual oppression that we find hard to shake off.

John 8:36 (NIV) So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.

Jesus came to bail us from our prison of sinful habits, to open our eyes from spiritual blindness and to free us from the continuous oppression that has hijacked our true joy of living. Luke 4:18 (NIV) “The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free

There are many people who can identify with each of the above statements because they have lived in a prison of sinful habits, oppressed by the devil and lacking in true joy but claiming to see though they are spiritually blind.

In reality, there are many types of legal grounds that give the devil the right to establish a home in our human spirit. The most common ones in our material world today are the acts of idolatry. All cases of idolatry affect our emotions negatively, and therefore cause depression.

When we reject God’s intended way of obtaining true joy by pursuing other ways and in the process harvest curses. A common example is the worship of sensuality or what we call “sexy”. Rebels of true worship of the living God, cloth themselves with what feels good in the flesh. Casual or prohibited sex become a norm and is worshipped as a source of happiness therefore making persons involved become candidates of curses. Curses cause emotional issues and the poor human beings end up with mild or severe depressions.

No wonder many people abuse alcohol to escape the pain of emptiness that come with idol worship, others take hard drugs, many divorce their wives or husbands who they initially thought were sources of their true happiness, some commit suicide, and a few shut themselves away socially and feeding on hatred believing that humans are the source of their problems. 1 Corinthians 6:18(NIV) Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a person commits are outside the body, but whoever sins sexually, sins against their own body.

We need to repent (turn away) from gratifying our flesh by not indulging in acts of idolatry. Colossians 3:5 (NIV) Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry.

Its important to know that repentance is not the same as confession. Confession is good, its the first step towards repentance. Confession is owning up to fellow human or to God. Confession therefore helps appease the other party who may be aware of whats happening against them. Confession also gives you a chance to share with a genuine worshiper of God who can pray for you or with you. James 5:16 (NIV) Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.

Confession also helps expose the sin to avoid getting into some secret pact with the devil by hiding your sins. Hiding sins affects your overall prosperity; health, emotions, relationships, provision, true happiness, etc. Proverbs 28:13 (NIV) Whoever conceals their sins does not prosper, but the one who confesses and renounces them finds mercy.

Repentance involves renouncing, turning away from, and hating your sins. It also involves making a conscious decision not to ever do it again. It’s forcing your mind to stop and think of never ever repeating the act or thought. It’s hard when the action look harmless and the agents of evil look friendly and “loving”.  Remember that the devil always comes in a human form and he is not your friend but a thief and a murderer.  John 10:10 (NIV) The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy… The devil comes to destroy your true joy, your family and your future.

I will encourage you to use this website’s menu and the search-tool to explore various topics that cover areas such as, how to get your spiritual freedom, how to gain your spiritual sight and how to be free from spiritual oppression. These topics are based on experiences I encountered while overcoming my personal struggles in family circles and from strive within the general social environment.

There are also topics on some specific agents of evil such as the Jezebel spirit. This spirit operates in specific people to counterfeit what God is doing in our homes, church or our work places. The Jezebel spirit is a grabber of human freedom and a top oppressor of the human spirit . You can’t miss to identify this spirit unless you are under a curse yourself. 2 Thessalonians 2:11-12(NLT). So God will cause them to be greatly deceived, and they will believe these lies. Then they will be condemned for enjoying evil rather than believing the truth.

Persons carrying this spirit are very hard to deal with. They impose themselves as leaders in all matters. The unclean spirit make them very deceitful, sometimes very religious, critical of others, bullies, architects of character assassination and back stabbers.  They will never say anything good about someone else especially if they perceive them as a threat to their position of influence or can exposure their dark side. A Jezebel will only say something nice about someone else as a tactical approach to deceive the listener.

Although this spirit can be found in men too, it operates mostly through women hosts. The main aim of this spirit is to break Godly relationships between people or between people and their creator and to mock anything that is worshiped other than them.

I have included a link on how to obtain a book about this spirit in the home page and in the books section page of this site.  I recommend this book as a must read to anyone who intends to lead a church group or social group or to anyone who is going through any form of spiritual oppression.

When I dedicated my life to my creator, I went through a personal journey of spiritual discovery. I got lots of help from what I read in inspired materials of true servants of God. I therefore decided not to ever publish spiritual rubbish but only what can bring life to others.
