DELIVERANCE FROM OCCULT MANIFESTATIONS AND 11:11 DEMONIC SPIRITUAL OPPRESSION

My mail confirms the dark, demonic agenda against Christians that lie behind the 11:11 time prompts. The following two letters best summarize and describe the debilitating, and devastating affect the occult and 11:11 demonic spiritual oppression has had on the lives of many Christians across the world. What began as normal curiosity among many born again Christians concerning these 11:11 DNA wake-up call time prompts, has ended up causing deep, dark, emotional, physical, spiritual pain, sorrow, depression, and oppression. Both Barkley and Jamie's letter's (copied below exactly as received) explain the 11:11 Satanic oppression and deception process most vividly:
Dear Synthia Esther,
I've experienced the 11:11 phenomena since I was a youth. I am now in my 30s. I am a born again Christian who experiences a high degree of synchronicity and other phenomena... such as premonitions. Some dreams i've had have been unscriptural and I feel at times quite alone in this world. I have my core beliefs, believe in the Bible, and yet, when I step outside into the world, it feels as though I am part of a play that mocks my beliefs. I've prayed for deliverance but this weird stuff (Synchronicity, dreams, etc) still continues. I'm tired of it and discouraged. Do you know any way to completely get rid of unGodly signs, leadings, etc?
Thanks... also, I haven't completely gone over the site yet so maybe my question is a bit premature... maybe the information is on here... whatever the case, this stuff has been so widespread in my life, so overpowering and manipulative, that I have almost lost hope in being delivered.
God can and does work through the use of dreams and prophecy. However, when such work goes against the word of God, you can be sure it is an attack used by the enemy!
Dear Synthia Esther,
I urgently need to discuss my problem with 11;11. I have always suspected the numbers haunting me were dark...especially when they began to proclaim themselves as "light." I had a very unusual experience the day I accepted Jesus Christ as my personal savior. PLEASE HELP ME???
I CAN'T HELP YOU JAMIE AND BARKLEY, BUT JESUS CHRIST AND HIS WORD CAN. DELIVERANCE WAS PROVIDED FOR ALL GOD'S CHILDREN, ON THE CROSS OF CALVARY.
New Agers believe in Karma - "You Get What You Deserved." Christians believe - "Jesus Christ Got What You Deserved." By His shed blood on Calvary's Cross, we are redeemed. The spirit part of man/woman is literally born again when we receive Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. This born again, Christ indwelled, renewed spirit, becomes stronger than our soul's sin nature, when we grow up in faith.
Let me explain the process using Adam as our example:
In the beginning Adam was a spirit controlled man, completely connected to God, directly communicating with God. When Adam sinned his direct and divine spiritual connection to God was lost. It was then Adam became "fear based." At which time, Adam took matters into his own hands, clothed himself, and hid from God. This fear based problematic nature affects us all from time to time. As we grow up in Christ, we become stronger in our faith. Just like a baby learning to walk. God rewards our walk..."Be faithful until death, and I will give you the crown of life." - Revelation 2:10 (NKJV) The greatest weapon of Spiritual Warfare a Christian can ever have, is to live a life of consecration and obedience to God's word, seeking after His Holy righteousness.
WE CAN BE RULED BY FEELINGS AND EMOTIONS - OR HAVE FAITH IN GOD AND HIS WORD
Jesus Christ defeated our sin based nature on Calvary's Cross. Because He paid sins price as the sacrificial lamb of God, we as Christians can once again, have and experience, a direct connection to God. Nothing can separate us from God's love, mercy, and grace. No power on earth is stronger than God. In order to defeat Satanic oppression and the dark spiritual attacks that may come our way, we must learn to believe and take a stand, on what God and His word proclaim.
Instead of being lead by our emotions and feelings, we confirm and reform our thinking according to God's word. Yes, spiritual attacks will come, as we still live in a sinned based world filled with Satanic influence and power. However, Satan has to flee, when a saint proclaims, "God deliver me!" There is no weapon on this earth that will prosper against a committed Child of Jesus Christ, who is the King of kings, and Lord of lords! God is with you. You are "sealed" by His spirit, which lives within you. "So we say with confidence, The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid." - Hebrews 13:6
Remember, Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever, - Hebrews 13:8. God has said, "Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you," - Hebrews 13:5.
MANIFESTATIONS OF SPIRITUAL OPPRESSION
There are different oppressive spiritual manifestations a person can have and experience, which can cause alarm and fear. Body sensations, including - but not limited to out of body (called OBE's) experiences. Seeing spirits, hearing voices of spirits (auditory sensing), smelling odors through olfactory sensing, or actual feeling or sensing a presence is around them, perhaps hiding or watching their every move. These oppressive manifestations can occur due to past abuse and trauma, hate and crime, opening doorways to the occult, repeated, unrepentant sin, worshipping other gods, idol worship, adultery, fornication, and unforgiveness, just to name a few gateways. We are instructed in God's word to put on our spiritual armor, to order to defeat the strongholds which weigh heavy upon our heart, mind, and soul. Repent of all sin, and pray in Jesus Christ's name, to close the gateways through which demonic activity thrives. Seek a godly, same sex Christian mentor to talk and pray with you about your situation and problems. Seek Christian counseling if you can afford to do so.
OUR SPIRITUAL ARMOR
Ephesians 6:10-18, "Finally, be strong in the Lord and in His mighty power. Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the breast-plate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the spirit, which is the word of God. And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints."
Key Biblical Concepts of Spiritual Warfare To Remember (learn) From Ephesians 6:10-18 Are:
- Readiness from the gospel of peace
- Faith in God
- Word of God
WE BASE OUR DELIVERANCE PRAYER OF POWER TO GOD UPON THE BIBLICAL CONCEPTS OF SPIRITUAL WARFARE AS MADE KNOWN BY EPHESIANS 6:10-18.
A Deliverance Prayer
by Synthia Esther:
God your word tells me to "Call unto You, and You will answer..."- (Jeremiah 33:3). You made the heavens and the earth by Your great power and by Your outstretched arm! Nothing is too difficult for You Lord. You are great in counsel and mighty in deed, whose eyes are open to all the ways of the sons of men, giving to everyone according to his ways and according to the fruit of his deeds; ..." - (Jeremiah 32:17; 19).
I seek your protection, peace, safety, and deliverance from the oppression of the enemy. I ask you to cover me with the power of your shed redeeming blood, and your Holy word. I command in the name of Jesus Christ my Lord, for dark oppression to leave me, my home, and the way of my path! You alone are my shelter Lord. You alone can deliver me from the hands of my enemies, and from those who persecute me. Make your face to shine upon me Lord, and Save me in your loving kindness. You are my God, and I trust in You - (Psalm 31:14-16).
Better is the little of the righteous than the abundance of many wicked. For the arms of the wicked will be broken; But the Lord sustains the righteous. The Lord knows the days of the blameless; and their inheritance will be forever - (Psalm 37:16-18). You push back my adversaries; and you trample down those who rise up against me. In You - God I will boast all the days of my life, and give thanks to Your name forever. - (Psalm 44:5; 8)
Answer me quickly, O Lord, my spirit fails; Do not hide Your face from me. Teach me the way in which I should walk; For to You I lift up my Soul. Deliver me, O Lord, from my enemies; I take refuge in You. Teach me to do Your will for You are my God. Let your good Spirit lead me on level ground. For the sake of Your name O Lord, revive me. In Your righteousness bring my soul out of trouble. In Your lovingkindness cut off my enemies, And destroy all those who afflict my soul; For I am Your servant - (Psalm 143 7-12).
I ask Lord that you send out Your Light and truth, let them lead me; Let them bring me to Your Holy place - (Psalm 43:3). For You Lord, are my place of peace. You are my Rock who trains my hands for war And my fingers for battle. You are my lovingkindness and my fortress, My stronghold and my deliver; My shield and in whom I take refuge - (Psalm 144:1-2).
Everyday I will bless You, and I will praise Your name forever and ever. Great is the Lord, and highly to be praised; And His greatness is unsearchable. One generation shall praise Your works to another, and shall declare Your mighty acts. On the glorious splendor of Your majesty, and on Your wonderful works, I will meditate. And men shall speak of the power of Your awesome acts; and I will tell of Your greatness. You are gracious and merciful; Slow to anger and great in loving kindness. You are good to all, and Your mercies are over all Your works. All Your works shall give thanks to You, O Lord, and Your godly ones shall bless You.
They shall speak of the glory of Your kingdom, and talk of Your power; To make known to the sons of men Your mighty acts, and the glory of the majesty of Your kingdom. For Your kingdom is an ever lasting kingdom, and Your dominion endures throughout all generations. You Lord sustain all who fall and raise up all who are bowed down. You are righteous in all Your ways, and kind in all Your deeds. You are near to all who call upon you, To all who call upon You in truth. Hear my cry and save me Lord. For You keep all who know You; But all the wicked, You will destroy. My mouth will speak of praise for You Lord; and all flesh will bless Your holy name forever and ever - (Psalm 145:2-14; 17-21).
QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS ABOUT 11:11, AND OTHER WORLDLY OCCULT MANIFESTATIONS
BEWARE OF DEMONIC INFLUENCE AND POSSESSION
Metaphysical New Age Promoter / Occult promoter, Steve Pavlina writes about 11:11 and describes demonic possession rights , "The more you try to disregard and ignore the 11s, the stronger they become. They practically demand your attention. The 11's are like a pesky ghost that keeps making its presence known. Turning your back on the ghost only makes it more persistent in trying to get your attention. ...Yet no matter how you try to frame it, the ghost persists. Eventually you'll break. At some point you'll turn and face the ghost and ask it what it wants and why it keeps bugging you so incessantly. ...If you entered through the 11:11 doorway, many of these synchronicities will be connected with the number 11 or the time 11;11, especially in the beginning. At this point you can regard the 11s as sign posts to follow. ...However, once you shed the old beliefs and embrace new ones, the proof you originally sought will be readily forthcoming. When you consciously ask to see reality accurately, some amazing things will begin to occur, gently at first, then with increasing strength and presence."
Just reading Steve Pavlina's article provides a "keen sense of the demonic powers" that be, towards taking possession of your mind and soul, negating God's will, voice, word, and spiritual plan for your life.
To this day, the 11:11 prompts will often intensify, seeking my attention. I pay these time prompts no mind...for they are not, and never will be my source of confirmation, guidance, power, or direction. When God is in complete control of your life, you too will learn to ignore the realm of demonic influence, standing firm in your prayer of faith. For we walk by faith, not by sight. I suggest, "Every time you feel spiritually oppressed, read in prayer - the 91st Psalm."
The 11:11 time prompts keep coming?
Yes. In fact, if ignored, just like metaphysical, New Age beliver Steve Pavlina writes, most often the 11:11 time prompts (and other numerical time prompts such as: 4:44, 5:55. 12:12, 2:22, 3:33 etc...) will multiply in occurrence. These demons are striving to "haunt" you, as if demanding you give their signs due allegiance and notice. The atmosphere around earth is for a time, under Satan's command and influence (2 Cor. 4:4). Remember though, there is no need to fear as God has many more devoted, mighty warrior Angels working on our behalf, than Satan's hosts of demons (Satan only has one-third of God's created angels that fell with him).
When you first noticed the 11:11 time prompts (or other numerical divination time prompts) these demonic entities knew they had your undivided attention. Sure, we all see 11:11 two times a day...however, these demonic spirits are seeking an attention transfer away from God and His word. And educating you to lean in, and learn more about the 11:11 phenomenon, which in reality provides an open doorway to learning more about the occult! All of which is evil in God's sight (Deut. 18). I laugh as I am writing this..."boy, have I got their number." It is really a joke for Satan to think he has any power over a Christian. Key Insight? Do not compromise your belief in God and His word. Stand Firm, in Jesus Name!
Let me repeat: "These dark, demonic spirits have no power over a born again Christian believer!"
I feel 11:11 is a sign from God. Doesn't God's word confirm the use of numbers?
* Please visit the sacredpursuit.org page: "God and Numbers" for a brief overview, and educated, biblical insight into God's use of numbers.
11:11 does not confirm a sign from God! Yes, God does use numbers, however, the number 11 in the Bible represents disorder, disorganization, imperfection, and disintegration (please reference the sacredpursuit.org page: "God and Numbers", for additional educational insight into the number 11 - Eleven from a Biblical perspective). Most Biblical scholar's confirm the number ten to represent God's Divine order, with number eleven serving as an addition to God's plan. Number 12 is said to confirm the perfection of God's Divine government, with number 11 falling short of it. Either way you look at the number eleven from a Biblical perspective, confirms number 11's evil vice. For anything against God's word and will is evil. Don't retreat, defeat any and all, dark, oppressive spirits by using the word of God as your sword! Use your spiritual armor (Eph. 6). This is what Jesus Christ did when Satan tempted Him, and Satan did flee. - Matthew 4:1-11
Why do the 11:11 time prompts usually increase if ignored?
Because it is Satan's desire and evil - dark agenda, along with his demonic hosts, to prove his power and existence in the hope that he will catch you at a low point and you will begin to believe and fellow his miraculous signs and wonders. It is also Satan's plan to get Christians to acknowledge such signs and wonders, giving credence and testimony credit to anything and everything other than Jesus Christ and His Holy Word. Such is sins temptation plan. Deception is an end time vice that will seal the doom of many within the world during the last days of Satan's reign on earth, as the Book of Revelation confirms:
Revelation 13:12-15, "He exercised all the authority of the first beast on his behalf, and made the earth and its inhabitants worship the first beast (Anti-Christ), whose fatal wound had been healed. And he performed great and miraculous signs, even causing fire to come down from heaven to earth in full view of men. Because of the signs he was given power to do on behalf of the first beast, he deceived the inhabitants of the earth. He ordered them to set up an image in honor of the beast (Anti-Christ), who was wounded by the sword and yet lived. He was given power to give breath to the image of the first beast, so that it could speak and cause all who refused to worship the image to be killed."
SIGNS AND WONDERS...
If God did not shorten the time of His return, even the very elect would be deceived - Matthew 24:24. "And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light" - 2nd Corinthians 11:14
Causing fire to come down from heaven to earth, bringing a dead man back to life, and giving life to a man made image will cause many to follow the Anti-Christ's deception of signs and wonders! If people are falling for time prompts such as 11:11, 4:44, and the like, they will most certainly follow greater signs and wonders, even after being forewarned! The world is filled with demonic spirits that will always strive to impress, oppress, tempt, and deceive humanity. If these demons know they have your attention, you can expect more time prompts, and possibly other strange demonic induced, manifestations to occur. You have to rebuke them by using God's word as your sword of power and truth! Then pray to Jesus Christ for your deliverance and protection.
Listen to what New Age occult channel, David Spangler has to say as he continues to utter his channeled demon's words of deceptive vice from within his book, "Revelation - The Birth Of A New Age" (page 65):
"I speak within each of you always...Even if you turn me out, I am still with you. Even if you invite me not to your home, yet I am there. Even if you hear me not, I shall always whisper to you."
These dark, demonic spirits can and do invoke fear! They are deceptive, false spirits, filled with treacherous, manipulating military type, mind - game plans. They do not give up easily. However, the only power they have over a Christian is the power your mind, feelings, and emotions provide, based on fear and allegiance. Or based on your acknowledgement that such signs and wonders are in fact, God sent and divine. Both deception and a fear based mentality are always traps and tools used by Satan. It is our faith in God's word, providence, and power that defeats Satan's agenda plans for our life. God is a God of peace, not fear, chaos and confusion. God's perfect love casts out fear (1 John 4:18). If you are a child of God and feel oppressed by Satanic forces, you have the power of God's name, blood, and word, to defeat the foe in Jesus name! - (Revelation 12:11). If you are not a Christian, you have no power, unless you sell out to Satan, and worship him. Christ's spirit gives, Satan's spirit gives in order to receive.
"YOU AREN'T REALLY SAVED, THE DEMON WHISPERED IN HIS EAR."
Refer to our website page: "11:11 Whisper In Your Ear," concerning such demonic mind games.
And don't let Satan trick you into believing you aren't really saved, and can't be saved. That is a lie straight from the pits of hell! For every human is God's child. And it is God's desire for "all" His children to accept Him as their heavenly Savior, Father, and Lord. Those children that refuse Christ's love are doomed to hell. Those children that accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior will live forever with Him in that beautiful city called Heaven, a paradise beyond our comprehension. Even if your past included the worship of Satan, God can and does forgive you as you yield your life in complete surrender to His holy will and plan.
CHRISTIAN-PREACHER PERRY STONE REPORT'S THAT DEMONIC SPIRITS CAME TO VISIT AND OPPRESS HIM. SO DOES METAPHYSICAL "MATRIX" AUTHOR, DAVID ICKE...
Metaphysical - Conspiracy author David Icke has seen and written about evil, demonic, shape shifting Reptilians, and has admitted his open doorway to these other worldly levels of consciousness began after he consulted a psychic medium. Such occult practices are warned against in the word of God, for good reason (Deut. 18:9-12; Lev. 20:27; 1st Chron. 10:13; Isaiah 8:19-20; 19:3; 29:4; 1st Sam. 28:3, 9; 2nd Kings 21:6; 23:24; Acts 16:16-18). If you have asked God's forgiveness concerning past sins of occult involvement, you "are" forgiven. For God is just and forgives "all"of us of "all" our sins.
Demonic oppression can happen to devoted Christians as well...
Noted Christian Preacher and evangelist, Perry Stone, “The Voice of Evangelism,” www.voe.org , has witnessed and given personal testimony of the full manifestation of demonic spirits visiting him. After studying about demons and their power for a period of time, demonic entities manifested in full form, making their dark, evil presence known to Perry. Perry Stone reports they finally went away after prayer, rebuke, and the quoting of God's word. Did Perry Stone invite them in? No, he was studying about them, and these demons wanted to literally "scare" him into a fear based mindset. Perry used the word of God against them, and they had to go away!
Born again Christian's have power to yield against angels and demons from the dark shadows of the occult. Like Jesus did, we use holy scripture to fight the battle against demonic oppression. Those who don't know our Lord and Savior, have no weapon of defense. Like Perry Stone, my family goes back four generations of ministry for Jesus Christ. We “value” our salvation and Holy Spirit filled generational heritage, background, education, life experiences, religious , spiritual, bio, psycho and social development.
According to sociologists, in simple terms, we are guided by what we know and don't know to be true. And what we affirm to be true, we “value.” That is why God states to train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is older he will not depart from it (Pro. 22:6). Our belief systems are held in place by ingrained, modeled roles and rules of behavior. Begin to read and value the word of God, and the word will seed your faith, providing a sense of peace, and tranquility, by products of the infilling of God's Holy Spirit.
Therefore we are to, “Love the lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the door frames of your houses and on your gates.” - Deuteronomy 6:5-9
"WHAT WE FEED - WE SEED," SYNTHIA ESTHER
The whisper of Satan's voice and host of demons can be heard when we give our "zealous" time and attention to other worldly direction and deceptions, such as "11:11" signs and wonders. What we feed, we seed within us. We have to guard our eye gate, ear gate, mind gate, emotion gate, and stand firm on God's word. What we hear, watch, view, read, see, do, allow, does affect our spirit, and can open up gateways into the occult. Don't give the enemy a foothold. Guard your heart, mind, and soul with God's word.
GIVE GOD YOUR TIME - AS GOD HAS GIVEN HIS CHILDREN ETERNITY, WHICH IS TIMELESS
Our attention does give credence to a person, place, thing, belief, when we acknowledge the "worth" by the gift and devotion of our time. The fact that these 11:11 time prompts are staging themselves within our mental concept of earth's time table, reeks with revelation concerning the source. For Satan is limited by God, as God is above and beyond our mortal concepts concerning His divine and sovereign "time" plan. Though theoretical physicists may try, "time" is a concept we humans simply cannot understand. For with God, one day is liken unto a thousand years (2nd Peter 3:8). For God is timeless.
1st Corinthians 13:12, "Now we see things imperfectly, like puzzling reflections in a mirror, but then we will see everything with perfect clarity. All that I know now is partial and incomplete, but then I will know everything completely, just as God now knows me completely," (NLT).
GOD AND TIME - AN ETERNAL PROGNOSIS
* To reference our website page concerning God, time, creation, and quantum physics - mechanics, please visiting the sacredpursuit.org website page:
"Pray For Schrodinger's Cat - He Doesn't Have To Die"
WHY DOES SATAN DESIRE TO HAVE US?
Satan seeks to win as many souls over to the dark side before God puts an end to his evil course of action. The demon spirits want your body to possess! They hate to be disembodied spirits (Matt. 4:24; 8:16, 28-24; Mark 5:1-20; Luke 8:26-40; Matt. 9:32, 33; 12:22; 15:21-28; Mark 7:24-30; Mark 1:32; 9:14-29; Luke 4:33-35; Acts 8:7; 16:16). Those who dabble in the occult and invite open communication with them, are in for a big surprise...as they are opening Pandora's Box of evil! What you seek, you "will" find. It is of up most importance to seek to know the word of God (John 8:32-34), to overcome Satan and his temptation plans, just like Jesus did (Matt. 4:1-10, Psalm 119:130; Eph. 1:15-22; 1st John 2:12-14, Rev. 12:11; 2nd Corin. 2:11; Eph. 6:17). Remember, these demonic spirits have no power or control over Christians, as we have all authority in Jesus Christ's name.
Christians are covered by God's mighty hand of providence, and His word. However, if you allow sin to rule and reign in your life, you open the door to demonic oppression. Do not try to communicate with these 11:11 demons of deception and destruction. Many 11:11 promoters call these deceiving spirits "Angels or Midwayers." But make no mistake, regardless of the form they assume to win your approval, or the name they chose to go by, they are demonic, evil spirits, who seek to use and abuse you.
HOW DO I KNOW IF I AM REALLY SAVED?
If you in faith, asked Jesus Christ into your heart and repented of your sins, knowing and acknowledging your need to change your old sin habits, you are saved. Romans 10:10, "For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved. As the Scripture says, 'Anyone who trusts in Him will never be put to shame.'"
I tell you, no; but unless you repent you will all likewise perish. - Luke 13:3 (NKJV)
Truly, these times of ignorance God overlooked, but now commands all men everywhere to repent. - Acts 17:30 (NKJV)
THOSE WHO ARE CALLED, REMAIN FAITHFUL AND ARE OBEDIENT TO GOD'S WORD
And having been perfected, He became the author of eternal salvation to all who obey Him. - Hebrews 5:9 (NKJV)
These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life... - 1 John 5:13 (NKJV)
...you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work. - 2 Timothy 3:14-17 (NKJV)
As Christians we perceive our fallen nature and realize our lost spiritual condition, in need of our Heavenly Savior's grace, mercy, and love. - John 3:16-17.
...for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. - Romans 3:23 (NKJV)
If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. - 1 John 1:8 (NKJV)
Whoever commits sin also commits lawlessness, and sin is lawlessness. - 1 John 3:4 (NKJV)
But your iniquities have separated you from your God; And your sins have hidden His face from you, So that He will not hear. - Isaiah 59:2 (NKJV)
For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast. - Ephesians 2:8 (NKJV)
Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved. Acts 4:12 (NKJV) And having been perfected, He became the author of eternal salvation to all who obey Him. - Hebrews 5:9 (NKJV)
If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him. He who does not love Me does not keep My words; and the word which you hear is not Mine but the Father's who sent Me. - John 14:23-24
If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love, just as I have kept My Father's commandments and abide in His love. - John 15:10 (NKJV)
Not everyone who says to Me, "Lord, Lord" shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, "Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?" And then I will declare to them, "I never know you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!" - Matthew 7:21-23 (NKJV)
We must respond to God's offer of grace and mercy by hearing His word and having a working faith that causes us to obey Him.
PUT YOUR FAITH AND TRUST IN GOD AND HIS WORD...
But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. - Hebrews 11:6 (NKJV)
So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. - Romans 10:17 (NKJV)
FAITH WITHOUT WORKS IS DEAD. WE AS CHRISTIANS ARE TO HOLD FAST TO DO GOD'S WILL, WHICH IS CONFIRMED BY HIS WORD.
But do you want to know, O foolish man, that faith without works is dead? Was not Abraham our father justified by works when he offered Isaac his son on the altar? Do you see that faith was working together with his works, and by works faith was made perfect? And the Scripture was fulfilled which says, "Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness." And he was called the friend of God. You see then that a man is justified by works, and not by faith only. Likewise, was not Rahab the harlot also justified by works when she received the messengers and sent them out another way? For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also. - James 2:20-26 (NKJV)
CHRISTIAN'S CONFESS THEIR SALVATION BEFORE MEN. THEY READILY PROCLAIM JESUS CHRIST AS THEIR LORD AND SAVIOR...
But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin. If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.
