SIN IS AN ENTICING TRAP!
DON’T LET THEM CONVINCE YOU THAT WITHOUT SIN YOU CANNOT BE SUCCESSFUL
BEING BORN AGAIN DOES NOT GUARANTEE VICTORY OVER SICKNESS, OVER DISEASE, OVER SIN BUT WE HAVE TO ENGAGE IN A FIGHT OF FAITH TO SECURE OUR VICTORY
-Bishop David Oyedepo on “Putting Up A Fight Against The Forces Of Unrighteousness” Day Three, Week of Spiritual Emphasis
We are called to engage in the fight of faith to lay hold on the realities of eternal life in the present time.
It is only in the finished works of Christ that we find true deliverance from the dominion of sin.
*You can wish somebody death and he will think you love him so much. Nobody knows you like you. Sin is secretive in nature.
You are working with that ministry.
How many years will it take you to build a house.
We graduated the same year, you are wasting your life.
Sin is enticing, beware!
Shall we lift up our two hands to Heaven tonight.
There is no one like our God, what He declares He delivers. There is nothing impossible with Him.
The third day of our Spiritual Week of Emphasis is always called Breakthrough Service, that name must answer to everyone of us tonight, in the name of Jesus Christ.
No one’s spiritual life shall suffer failure again. No one’s walk with God shall suffer a setback again.
Whatever puts God off will never have a hold on anyone of us. So shall it be in Jesus’name.
Again, welcome to 2021, your year of Supernatural Turnaround. Give the Lord a big hand of praise and please, you may be comfortably seated.
Only a fight of faith guarantees victory (1 John 5:4) It is not a fight of strength, experience, or power.
It is a fight of faith. Righteousness is impossible without faith in the finished works of Christ.
By strength shall no man prevail in the battle against sin. (Romans 9:16) We need to grasp the faith dimension of godliness or we will never experience His reality.
We just must grab the faith dimension of righteousness or it becomes impossible. Every redemptive provision delivers by faith. (Isaiah 53:5-6) So when he came and say it is finished, it’s finished with the dominion of iniquity of in our lives.
He’s laid upon him the iniquity of us all just like he laid upon him the stripes for our healing. By carrying that iniquity, we become free from the dominion of iniquity.
If we ever missed the faith dimension it becomes a task that we may never get accomplished.
Paul was a very zealous man in the religion of his fathers. In Romans 7:19-25. He had a lot of struggle to keep the law that he believed and was preaching.
We are conceived in sin, so until we are saved, we can never be free. It is only in the finished works of Christ that we find true deliverance from the dominion of sin.
Our faith must be on that finished work to experience true liberty.
We are called to engage in the fight of faith to lay hold on the realities of eternal life in the present time. (1 Timothy 6:12)
It is a fight of faith.
The same way we enforce our healing by drawing on the finished works of Christ concerning our healing and wholeness, we enforce a life that pleases God by dwelling on the finished works of Christ in sin.
Jesus already carried this on my behalf, you don’t have dominion over me again. ChurchGist. This is so important so that we don’t engage in unending struggle to please God.
We have the blood Christ as an edge over the Old Testament saints. By the blood of Jesus, get off my mind and thoughts now in the name of Jesus. (Hebrews 9:14)
Being born again does not guarantee victory over sickness, over disease, over sin but we have to engage in a fight of faith to secure our victory. (Philippians 3:7-9)
If we don’t get it faith, you will be proud. The crash of Job was triggered by spiritual pride. (Job 31:1) It takes securing that by faith to be free from the pride of it.
For it is God who is at work in us both to will and to do of his own pleasure. (Philippians 2:13) Without God, we are helpless and God will not step in without faith.
There is a difference between the law and the grace. Grace came to unveil the mystery of godliness.
This freedom is not by power or might but by faith in the finished works of Christ. (Romans 3:23-27) God’s righteousness becomes a reality by engaging the law of faith in the finished work of Christ.
Lift up your right hand and express your faith in the finished work against all forms of iniquity and all forms of unrighteousness.
We have the platform of restoration. Until Job repented in ashes, he never got out. Many of us will never come out of our situation without genuine repentance.
Two Other Nature of Sin
1. Sin is secretive in nature. (Psalm 90:8) There is nothing hidden from God’s sight. You can hate somebody to death and he thinks you love him the most.
You can wish somebody death and he will think you love him so much. Nobody knows you like you.
Sin is secretive in nature, that no man knows it does not mean that it is not there.
You know if it is there. He knows it, don’t hide it from him. May every secret sin be destroyed by the power of the communion table tonight.
2. Sin is enticing. (Proverbs 1:10) Sit down there, just be going to church. Let’s see how you will build an estate, let’s see how you will build houses.
You are working with that ministry.
How many years will it take you to build a house. We graduated the same year, you are wasting your life.
Sin is enticing, beware!
It is a bait whose end is destruction.
(James 1:13-15) Sin thrives on our
You want to jump the queue, be famous, be big and then be dead.
(Judges 16:5) She was sent to entice Samson and she succeeded.
She enticed him to the horror of sexual immorality.
Every enticing trap of sin laid for you be crushed in the name of Jesus.
The Spiritual Forces to be Dealt With
1. The Lust of the Flesh.
2. The Lust of the Eyes
3. The Pride of Life
4. Spirit of Whoredom (Hosea 5:4)
By the power of the blood tonight, I curse the operation of the spirit of whoredom in the name of Jesus.
