And forgive us our sins; for we also forgive every one that sins against us. And lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from evil.
God doesn’t lead us into temptation it is the devil, tradition causes people to sin.
When we relate to a stereotype for instance, if you do, then that name has a person and character that goes with it that does things a certain way.
God’s word on almost every occasion does it differently.
A stereotype may put you in line to sin again… God’s word makes a way of escape from it! Amen
Jesus is the name above ALL names and that is why His power works in changing people from their sinful way of life. Also it causes those that are changed to be agents of healing and blessings.
Deliver yourself from evil… God has done it, He said He has taken you from the kingdom of darkness and transmitted you into the kingdom of His Son. Col 1:13
You’re not tempted by men but by your own evil heart… the bible says you must be aware of its deception. The evil desires are in you at birth from your ancestors but the word and God’s Spirit changes that – it is a part of the “renewing of the mind”. Rom 12:2
Jesus is the perfect priest for you. He was tempted in all ways as a man, the bible says but He didn’t sin, that is why He is the perfect sacrifice.
His Spirit, which He sends to His followers is to strengthen you, so you can resist the devilish ideas.
John answered, saying unto them all, I indeed baptize you with water; but one mightier than I comes, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to unloose: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost and with fire:
And I will pray the Father, and he will give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;
Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.
Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.
JESUS IS THE SENDER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT!
John 16:8 – 11
And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: Of sin, because they believe not on me; Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more; Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged.
The Holy Spirit is Holy; that is why sinful and disobedient men need Him to help them. We can’t do it on our own. God’s pattern is the Holy Spirit being inside us to help us and support us.
When you are righteous or aware that you should be better human beings you can be let down, disappointing yourself by sin and it wears you out trying, getting up again and again only to fall again. That’s not God’s way.
With every temptation God makes a way of escape – it’s written!
Actually if you really want to stay right with God here read this…
If a son shall ask bread of any of you that is a father, will he give him a stone? or if he ask a fish, will he for a fish give him a serpent? Or if he shall ask an egg, will he offer him a scorpion? If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how MUCH MORE shall your heavenly Father give the HOLY SPIRIT to them that ASK him?
Some people have different spirits – not the Holy Spirit of God. They get so called results but they are evil spirits. Don’t be too critical – a lot of people in the world try to be good but as said earlier it’s an uphill battle and there actually is only ONE WAY TO WIN.
THE END OF THE WORLD IS COMING – I was just reading this morning a scientist that specialises in earthquakes monitoring the crust of the earth said a time of mega quakes is coming and is already here.
Climate Change and the Ring of Fire. This old tired planet ; blood stained as it is… tons and tons of material taken from one place and deposited in another part of the globe…you don’t have to be a rocket scientist or any other to understand BALANCE. A planet spinning perfectly changes in time especially when weight is changed from the centre of gravity ; aircraft won’t fly if the weight / centre of gravity ratio is changed too much!
You and I need to change when needed. My time was 1989. That was when I gave up on myself and all the lies and deceptions in the world because of LUST and I made the BEST decision of my life: I asked Jesus into my life. The scriptures are true as they have become a reality to me and I know they work… all the Alpha and Omega Word of God works .and not one word will fall to the ground useless.
Trust Him today like never before and you will ENTER IN TO THE KINGDOM not just see it and get envious of those that are in… envy is a hater of love, who our God is. John 3:3,4
You are welcome to contact me – let me know if you made a decision for Christ today. Jesus loves you. I love you.
