I HAVE SINNED WHEN I CONFESS MY SIN I AM FORGIVEN. WHETHER OR NOT I DO IT AGAIN IS UP TO ME. GOD, YOU WOULD NOT REQUIRE ME TO CONFESS MY SIN IF I WERE JUST A "VICTIM OF SIN"; OR THAT "I COULDN'T HELP IT".



GOD, YOU ALLOW ME TO BE TEMPTED, TO SHOW WHAT IS IN ME; THAT SATAN CAN DRAW ON.

GOD, YOU WANT ME TO ASK FOR YOUR GRACE TO RESIST SATAN; AND TO BE FREED FROM THAT EVIL DESIRE.

YOU WANT ME TO BE ABLE TO SAY, AS JESUS DID, "THE PRINCE OF THIS WORLD HAS NOTHING IN ME". JN14:30



TO WHOM I YIELD MYSELF SERVANT TO OBEY, HIS SERVANT I AM TO WHOM I OBEY; WHETHER OF SIN UNTO DEATH, OR OF OBEDIENCE UNTO RIGHTEOUSNESS. RO6:16



IN THOSE DAYS CAME JOHN THE BAPTIST, PREACHING IN THE WILDERNESS OF JUDAEA, AND SAYING, REPENT (G3340): FOR THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN IS AT HAND. MK1:14-15



FROM THAT TIME JESUS BEGAN TO PREACH, AND TO SAY, REPENT (G3340): FOR THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN IS AT HAND. MT4:17



(G3340) to change one's mind for better, heartily to amend; with ABHORrence of one's past sins



HAVE YOU REPENTED?



DO YOU KNOW WHAT IT MEANS TO ABHOR?



IT IS TO UTTERLY DETEST; AND TO LOATHE PAST SINS.



LORD, I WILL GO AND SIN NO MORE!! JOHN 8:11



HAVE YOU EVER MADE THAT LAST STATEMENT; OR SOME VARIATION OF IT...?



...MANY TIMES BEFORE?



...OVER THE SAME SIN?



HAS A PARTICULAR SIN PROVEN TO HAVE A HOLD ON YOU? RO6:16



HAVE YOU REPEATEDLY COMMITTED THIS SIN; AND REPEATEDLY FELT CONDEMNED; AND IN SO DOING TESTED GOD'S LONGSUFFERING PATIENCE; AND MERCY?



HAVE YOU REPEATEDLY CONFESSED, AND REPENTED OF THIS PARTICULAR SIN?



ARE YOU WEARY OF THIS VICIOUS CYCLE; AND WANT TO STOP; BUT YET HABITUALLY YIELD?



IF SO, BE HONEST WITH GOD: IN THAT YOU WANT TO DO IT. (HE ALREADY KNOWS!)



CONFESS, AND SEEK HIS FORGOVENESS FOR HAVING ABUSED; AND HELD IN CONTEMPT; HIS MERCY, FORGIVENESS, AND LOVE;



AND ASK HIM FOR HIS HELP, IN OVERCOMING THIS SIN.



IF YOU ARE SINCERE IN WANTING TO CHANGE LORDS (RO6:16);



BUT DON'T KNOW HOW TO;



BUT ARE WILLING TO BE WILLING TO OBEY GOD:



THEN HE CAN HELP YOU.



NOW THE GOD OF PEACE, THAT BROUGHT AGAIN FROM THE DEAD OUR LORD JESUS, THAT GREAT SHEPHERD OF THE SHEEP, THROUGH THE BLOOD OF THE EVERLASTING COVENANT, HE13:20



MAKE YOU PERFECT IN EVERY GOOD WORK TO DO HIS WILL, WORKING IN YOU THAT WHICH IS WELL-PLEASING IN HIS SIGHT, THROUGH JESUS CHRIST; TO WHOM BE GLORY FOR EVER AND EVER. AMEN. HE13:21




BREAKING AWAY FROM THE GRIP OF SIN: CHANGING LORDS
I AM EITHER GOD'S SERVANT, OR SATAN'S. RO6:16




HOW TO RESIST SATAN
I SUBMIT (G5293) MYSELF THEREFORE TO YOU, GOD. I RESIST THE DEVIL, AND HE FLEES FROM ME. JA4:7



NOTICE THAT SUBMISSION COMES BEFORE RESISTING.

(G5293) to subject oneself, obey. In other words, "GOD, YOU ARE MY GOD; AND I WILL OBEY YOU."

TO OBEY: NOT ONLY FOR YOUR SAKE...
YOU HAVE CALLED HEAVEN AND EARTH TO RECORD THIS DAY AGAINST ME, THAT YOU HAVE SET BEFORE ME LIFE AND DEATH, BLESSING AND CURSING: THEREFORE I CHOOSE LIFE, THAT BOTH I AND MY SEED MAY LIVE. DE30:19





IF I AM NOT SUBMITTED TO GOD: SATAN WILL KNOW IT; AND HE WILL NOT FLEE FROM ME.



LORD, I DOUBTED YOUR PROVISION; AND YOUR WILLINGNESS TO FULLY SUPPLY MY NEEDS; AND ATTEMPTED TO SATISFY THEM ON MY OWN.



I SINNED AGAINST YOU, GOD, IN THAT I LOOKED TO WORLDLY THINGS TO SATISFY MY NEED.



AND BROKE AWAY FROM YOUR LOVE; AND SOUGHT FOR SATISFACTION; IN AND OF MYSELF.





GOD, YOU SUPPLY EVERYTHING TO ME BY YOUR GRACE.



YOUR GRACE IS YOU DOING FOR ME THAT WHICH I COULD NEVER DO FOR MYSELF – WHICH IS EVERYTHING; BECAUSE JESUS SAID, "WITHOUT ME, YOU CAN DO NOTHING."



GOD, YOU GIVE MORE GRACE. JA4:6 YOU ARE READY TO TAKE CONTROL OF MY LIFE; MEET MY NEEDS; PUT AN END TO MY STRUGGLES – TO BECOME EVERYTHING I NEED FOR LIFE; THE THING ADAM LOST IN THE GARDEN.



SIN IS THE SPIRIT OF INDEPENDENCE: TO BE INDEPENDENT OF YOU, GOD.



I DRAW NEAR TO YOU, GOD, AND YOU WILL DRAW NEAR TO ME. I CLEANSE MY HANDS, FROM SINNING; AND I PURIFY MY HEART; FROM BEING DOUBLE MINDED. JA4:8



I AM AFFLICTED, AND MOURN, AND WEEP: I LET MY LAUGHTER BE TURNED TO MOURNING, AND MY JOY TO HEAVINESS. JA4:9



I HUMBLE MYSELF IN YOUR SIGHT LORD; AND YOU WILL LIFT ME UP. JA4:10



LORD, YOU ARE HOLY; EXCELLENT; GOOD; AND LOVING; AND I LIGHTLY ESTEEMED; DESPISED; IGNORED; AND SINNED AGAINST YOU.



LORD, I UTTERLY DETEST; AND LOATHE; ALL OF MY SINS.




I SUBMIT MYSELF TO YOU. I YIELD MYSELF TO YOU, AS MY LORD.




I WILL LOVE YOU, LORD, MY GOD; AND I WILL OBEY YOUR VOICE; AND I WILL CLEAVE UNTO YOU: FOR YOU ARE MY LIFE, AND THE LENGTH OF MY DAYS: THAT I MAY DWELL IN THE LAND WHICH YOU SWORE UNTO OUR FATHERS, TO ABRAHAM, TO ISAAC, AND TO JACOB, TO GIVE THEM. DE30:20



I WILL NOT SAY WHEN I AM TEMPTED, THAT I AM TEMPTED OF YOU, GOD: FOR YOU CANNOT BE TEMPTED WITH EVIL, NEITHER TEMPT YOU ANY MAN: JA1:13



BUT I AM TEMPTED, WHEN I AM DRAWN AWAY OF MY OWN LUST,(G1939) AND ENTICED. JA1:14



THEN WHEN LUST HAS CONCEIVED, IT BRINGS FORTH SIN: AND SIN, WHEN IT IS FINISHED, BRINGS FORTH DEATH. JA1:15



(G1939) desire, craving, longing, desire for what is forbidden, lust.



THERE HAS TO BE SOMETHING IN ME THAT SATAN CAN DRAW ON.


SATAN'S 'HOOK' INTO ME IS MY DESIRE; MY LUST.
SATAN DRAWS ON MY DESIRE AS A MAGNET DRAWS ON METAL.

YIELDING TO SATAN IS THE FIRST STEP TO FORMING AN EVIL HABIT.

IF I CONTINUALLY YIELD TO EVIL DESIRES, THEN THAT WILL BE MY INCLINATION (MY HABIT).

I WILL DO IT WITHOUT THINKING; LIKE A REFLEX ACTION. THAT IS THE WAY HABITS WORK.



THE SOLUTION IS TO BE IN SUBMISSION; AND OBEDIENCE TO GOD; AND TO RESIST SATAN'S ATTACKS.JA4:7



IF THE DESIRE IS NOT YIELDED TO; IT WILL WEAKEN.

IF IT IS NOT 'FED', IT WILL 'STARVE TO DEATH'.

I AM TEMPTED THROUGH MY SENSES.

I WILL GUARD MY EYES, MY MOUTH, MY EARS, AND MY FLESH FROM ALL THAT IS EVIL.

TOLERATION OF SIN IS THE FIRST STEP TOWARDS CONFORMITY.

GOD, TO TOLERATE WHAT YOU HAVE CONDEMNED; IS TO MOVE TOWARDS DOING THAT SAME THING.

I WILL GIVE SATAN NO FOOTHOLD; NO OPPORTUNITY. EP4:27



I AM SOBER AND VIGILANT; BECAUSE MY ADVERSARY THE DEVIL, AS A ROARING LION, WALKS ABOUT, SEEKING WHOM HE MAY DEVOUR: 1PE5:8



I STAY F.A.R. FROM SIN



I WILL FOLLOW YOUR LEADINGS, HOLY SPIRIT.



I WILL AVOID AREAS OF TEMPTATION.



I WILL RESIST SATAN, STEDFAST IN THE FAITH (AT HIS ONSET) KNOWING THAT THE SAME AFFLICTIONS ARE APPOINTED TO MY BRETHREN THAT ARE IN THE WORLD. 1PE5:9




THE SLIPPERY SLOPE

IT IS EASIER, TO RESIST; AND TO STOP SATAN; AT HIS ONSET.




I WATCH AND PRAY, LEST I ENTER INTO TEMPTATION. MY SPIRIT IS WILLING, BUT MY FLESH IS WEAK. MK14:38



THERE HAS NO TEMPTATION TAKEN ME BUT SUCH AS IS COMMON TO MAN: BUT GOD, YOU ARE FAITHFUL, WHO WILL NOT ALLOW ME TO BE TEMPTED ABOVE THAT I AM ABLE; BUT WILL WITH THE TEMPTATION ALSO MAKE A WAY TO ESCAPE, THAT I MAY BE ABLE TO BEAR IT. 1CO10:13



IF I DON'T WATCH AND PRAY; OR SEEK THE WAY OF ESCAPE; I WILL FOCUS ON MYSELF;



AND YIELD TO SELF-PITY; AND TO THE LUSTS OF MY FLESH.



I WILL IGNORE THE PROMPTINGS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT;



AND HIS WARNING OF AN AREA OF TEMPTATION.



I WILL TOLERATE SATAN'S INTRUSION INTO MY MIND; AND ALLOW HIS THOUGHTS TO LINGER;



AND TO PULL ON MY DESIRE.



I WILL LISTEN TO HIS LIES; AND 'FORGET' GOD'S JUDGMENT ON SIN.



I WILL CHOOSE TO LOVE MYSELF MORE THAN GOD.



I WILL MAKE LIGHT OF; 'FORGET'; THE TERRIBLE PRICE THAT JESUS PAID FOR SIN.



I WILL TRY GOD; AND PROVE HIM; HE3:8-9



AND IN SO DOING SHOW THAT I DESPISE THE RICHES OF HIS GOODNESS, AND FORBEARANCE, AND LONGSUFFERING.



I WILL SHAMEFULLY, CONSIDER GOD'S MERCY OF FORGIVENESS TO BE A LIGHT THING; (A 'GIVEN').



I WILL SOW TO MY FLESH; AND REAP DESTRUCTION GA6:8




JESUS, YOU CAME THAT I MIGHT HAVE LIFE; AND THAT I MIGHT HAVE IT MORE ABUNDANTLY. SATAN, THE THIEF, COMES ONLY BUT FOR TO STEAL; AND TO KILL; AND TO DESTROY. JN10:10



TO BE WILLING TO RESIST SATAN, REQUIRES A STRONG AWARENESS, THAT TO DO OTHERWISE WILL RESULT IN SOMETHING BEING STOLEN FROM ME; SOMETHING KILLED; OR SOMETHING DESTROYED IN MY LIFE.



THE SPIRIT IS WILLING TO OBEY; BUT THE FLESH IS WEAK.MT26:41



THE FLESH TAKES LIGHTLY GOD'S WARNING OF STEALING, KILLING, AND DESTRUCTION.JN10:10



THE FLESH, IF YOU LET IT, WILL DEFIANTLY IGNORE GOD'S WORD: "THE WAGES OF SIN IS DEATH" RO6:23



THE FLESH IS WILLING TO TEMPT GOD; TO TAKE THE GAMBLE.



THE FLESH WANTS WHAT IT WANTS NOW.



IT IS WILLING TO GET IT NO MATTER WHAT THE COST.



AS LONG AS A LIGHTNING BOLT DIDN'T HIT IT, IT FIGURES IT'S OKAY.



THE PLEASURES OF SIN FOR A SEASON IS ITS MOTTO. HE11:25



IF I LIVE AFTER THE FLESH, I SHALL DIE: BUT IF I, THROUGH THE SPIRIT, DO MORTIFY THE DEEDS OF MY BODY, I SHALL LIVE. RO8:13



IN SOWING TO MY FLESH I SHALL REAP CORRUPTION; BUT I SOW TO THE SPIRIT; AND OF THE SPIRIT I REAP EVERLASTING LIFE. GA6:8



MORE IMPORTANTLY, IN ORDER TO BE WILLING AND ABLE TO RESIST SATAN, I MUST LOVE SOMEONE MORE THAN MY SELF.

SATAN'S ATTACKS ARE MOST EFFECTIVE WHEN I 'FORGET' GOD; FOCUS ON MYSELF; AND YIELD TO SELF-PITY.



TO DELIBERATELY FOCUS ON GOD'S LOVE FOR ME;



AND MY LOVE FOR HIM;



AND TO REVERENTLY CONSIDER JESUS' SACRIFICE OF HIMSELF FOR SIN;



AND HIS FREE GIFT OF LIFE;



AND THAT WITHOUT HIM; AND HIS GRACE; I CAN DO NOTHING; AND AM NOTHING;



AND TO HAVE A STRONG AWARENESS OF SATAN'S SCHEME FOR MY DESTRUCTION;



ALL OF THIS COUPLED WITH GOD'S GRACE;



ARE THE MOTIVES, AND THE STRENGTH FOR ME TO RESIST SATAN.



SATAN'S MAIN LIE IS THAT THE ONLY PLEASURES TO BE HAD IN LIFE, ARE IN "THE PLEASURES OF SIN FOR A SEASON"HE11:25



GOD IS ENDEAVORING TO BRING ME INTO THE REALITY OF "YOU WILL SHOW ME THE PATH OF LIFE: IN YOUR PRESENCE IS FULNESS OF JOY; AT YOUR RIGHT HAND THERE ARE PLEASURES FOR EVERMORE." PS16:11



I LOVE YOU, LORD, AND I SHOW MY LOVE FOR YOU BY KEEPING YOUR COMMANDMENTS; AND IN TURN I SHALL BE LOVED OF THE FATHER; AND JESUS, YOU WILL LOVE ME; AND YOU WILL MANIFEST YOURSELF TO ME. JN14:21



I AM A SON OF GOD.RO8:14



I AM LED BY THE SPIRIT OF GOD.RO8:14



I PUT ON YOU, LORD JESUS CHRIST; AND I DO NOT MAKE PROVISION FOR MY FLESH; TO FULFILL THE LUSTS THEREOF.RO13:14



I WALK IN THE SPIRIT, AND I DO NOT FULFILL THE LUSTS OF MY FLESH.GA5:16



FOR THE FLESH LUSTS AGAINST THE SPIRIT, AND THE SPIRIT AGAINST THE FLESH: AND THESE ARE CONTRARY THE ONE TO THE OTHER: SO THAT I CANNOT DO THE THINGS THAT I WOULD. GA5:17



TEMPTATION IS THE DOORWAY TO DEATH

THE WAGES OF SIN IS DEATH.RO6:23



I WILL SET NO WICKED THING BEFORE MY EYES: I HATE THE WORK OF THEM THAT TURN ASIDE; IT SHALL NOT CLEAVE TO ME. PS101:3



I LOVE YOU, LORD, MY GOD, WITH ALL MY HEART; AND WITH ALL MY SOUL; AND WITH ALL MY STRENGTH; AND WITH ALL MY MIND; AND I LOVE MY NEIGHBOR AS MYSELF. LU10:27



FOR THIS IS THE LOVE OF GOD, THAT I KEEP YOUR COMMANDMENTS: AND YOUR COMMANDMENTS ARE NOT GRIEVOUS. 1JN5:3



AND THIS IS YOUR COMMANDMENT, THAT I SHOULD BELIEVE ON THE NAME OF YOUR SON JESUS CHRIST, AND LOVE OTHERS, AS YOU GAVE ME COMMANDMENT.1JN3:23



AND IN KEEPING YOUR COMMANDMENTS I DWELL IN YOU, AND YOU IN ME. AND HEREBY I KNOW THAT YOU ABIDE IN ME, BY THE SPIRIT WHICH YOU HAVE GIVEN ME.1JN3:24



TO BE CARNALLY MINDED (FOCUSED ON MYSELF) IS DEATH. RO8:6



I TURN AWAY FROM EVIL, AND I DO GOOD 1PE3:11



I SEEK PEACE, AND I ENSUE IT 1PE3:11



I LOVE YOU, LORD, AND I HATE EVIL. YOU SHALL PRESERVE MY SOUL. YOU WILL DELIVER ME OUT OF THE HAND OF THE WICKED. PS97:10



I PURSUE RIGHTEOUSNESS, GODLINESS, FAITH, LOVE, PATIENCE, AND MEEKNESS. 1TIM6:11



I KEEP UNDER MY BODY, AND BRING IT INTO SUBJECTION: LEST THAT BY ANY MEANS, WHEN I HAVE PREACHED TO OTHERS, I MYSELF SHOULD BE A CASTAWAY.1CO9:27



I WILL EXHORT MYSELF DAILY, LEST I BE MADE OBSTINATE/STUBBORN, THROUGH THE (SELFISH MINDED) DECEITFULNESS OF SIN. HE3:13;RO8:6
