Mit Dem Fleisch Kämpfend
Greetings in the Lord, I just recently discovered your site and agree with your teachings. I was hoping that you might be able to answer a question. I professed faith in Jesus Christ and his death for my sins back in 1986. The Jesus that I knew then is not the same as the one I know now. Now I understand the importance of giving your life to the Lord and not just part of it. I never grew spiritually and I have struggled with certain sins since then. In the past year, I have started to see a lot of the things that I was doing that were against God and I have been giving them up and really seeking a complete relationship with the Lord. One of the last areas I am really struggling with is one that I really indulged in the past and that is lust of the flesh (sexual). My sins after the confession of faith that I had have been adultery, pornography, theft, dishonesty, materialism. I don't even know how I called myself a Christian!! Now that I want to get rid of this I find that I can have victory for awhile and then I will sin even when my desire is to serve the Lord!! I have been praying and seeking the Lord through his word but at times it seems in vain because just when things seem to go well I sin and then feel terrible. I even consider myself dead to sin but it seems to be just words even if I believe it. Is this a sign that it is too late because I have given in so much and have been disobedient?? If not, what kind of approach should I take? I have struggled with this isssue because of conflicting teachings as well as my own disobedience. I see the sins of this nation and I want to come out and be seperate!! I just want someone to be honest with me even if it hurts. I love the Lord and I want to do the right thing and I certainly want to be perfect in all I do because I Love the Lord and want to serve/please him!! I would really appreciate any help with this matter. I have rebuked the spirit of lust, I have asked the Lord to take it away, etc. I do have faith that the Lord can remove this!! Thanks for your time!!
[EO's Antwort: Es ist sehr gebräuchlich für Leute zu denken, dass sie zu viel gesündigt haben für dass Gott ihnen Barmherzigkeit und Vergebung gewähren könnte. Du bist keine Ausnahme. Ungeachtet davon wo du in deiner Vergangenheit warst, in genau diesem Zeitpunkt, wisse, dass Gott dich will genau wie er den verlorenen Sohn wollte. Das einzige Mal wo wir in der Bibel Lesen, dass der Vater rennt, rennt er um den verlorenen Sohn zurück zu Hause willkommen zu heissen, da er von seine Sünde umkehrte und dem Vater dienen wollte. Gott empfindet genau gleich für dich. Er will dich. Der Teufel will nicht, dass du das weisst. Er will deinen Verstand quälen, wie er es auch Mengen von Anderen getan hat, die eine Zeitlang für das Fleisch gelebt haben. Bitte sinne über Lk. 15,11-31 nach. Bitte sinne auch über Jak. 5,19-20 nach, wo es "eine Menge" Sünden heisst. Even thought you've committed these sins, ponder also what King David did--Ehebruch und Mord, dennoch fand er Vergebung. Die Passage in Heb. 6,4-6 spricht von etwas was ganz und gar anders von dem ist, was du getan hast. Bitte schau unser Schutzvorrichtungs-Kapitel von unserem Buch welches Ewige Sicherheit widerlegt an, welches dir viele Biblische Wahrheiten geben wird bezüglich wie man bei Gott bleibt und nicht abirrt/sich nicht verirrt..
You are in a very intense spiritual war for your soul. You need to watch where you go, who you are with and what you think about. Your most valuable possession is your soul. Don't ever forget this. You must guard your soul from sin. Sometimes the devil will use a "friend" to try to lead us into wickedness. If that is the case with you, you need to find new friends. Stop spending time with such ungodly people. It might mean loneliness for awhile but that's far better than being corrupted. Your soul must be guarded. Remember 1 Tim. 5:22. Also hide God's word in your heart. See Psalm 119:9-11. This will prevent sin in itself. Meditating in and memorizing the Scriptures are so important to the victorious Christian life, words cannot adequately describe it. So shut the TV off, lay the newspaper down and get very serious and adamant about drawing near to God and seeking him. Lay aside every weight and sin that so easily entangles and run with perseverance the race marked out for you. Please check out our audio sermons page. There are many sermons there that can help instruct and bolster your faith. God bless you. Remember Heb. 3:12-14. Don't hesitate to write again.]
