A painful reality hit me last night after I spoke to a very dear friend of mine who has been living in wretched disobedience for at least five years now. This place that he is in, is a place that only the Spirit of God can help him get out of. For the scripture says in Hebrews 6:4-6,
“4 It is impossible for those who have once been enlightened, who have tasted the heavenly gift, who have shared in the Holy Spirit, 5 who have tasted the goodness of the word of God and the powers of the coming age 6 and who have fallen away, to be brought back to repentance [by another human being]. To their loss they are crucifying the Son of God all over again and subjecting him to public disgrace. (NIV)” [added for interpretation]
I am ashamed of my pride! How could I think that my love is great enough to bring him out of his sin and disobedience, when the Love of The One Who Died for him has not been enough? WOW!!! Yeshua forgive me for insulting Your Sacrifice!!
Before a person can receive mentorship or guidance from anyone, they first need to be set free through the power of their own press of prayer and fasting. Jesus Himself said, “…This kind can come out by nothing but prayer and fasting. (Mark 9:29b, NKJV)”
In 1 Cor 15:33 it reads, “Do not be misled, bad company corrupts good character.” In Ps 1:1 we are exhorted to remove ourselves from those that dwell comfortably in sin. As long as you continue to try to help people like this, you are only contaminating your own walk. All you can do for a person like this is intercede for them in the Spirit — from a distant and detached place.
Read this carefully…
…THERE IS NOTHING THAT YOU CAN DO TO HELP A FALLEN SAINT THAT WILLFULLY AND DELIBERATELY CHOOSES THE PATH OF SIN AND DISOBEDIENCE!
I set myself FREE this morning. Like and comment if you intend to follow me and loose yourself from those that are married to disobedience!!!
