Hello children of GOD.......... Praise GOD for each and everyone of you!
I know during this holiday season that many of us children of GOD have fallen down into old sins!
And during this holiday season, many of us children of GOD have also fallen back down into the same old addictions of the past too!
I know I myself have fallen down into the same old addictions over and over again throughout my life. And most of you have also experienced these devastating experiences too, to where JESUS sets us free from a particular addiction, only to find it coming back and attacking us again sometime in the future!
But I want to share some good news with you tonight! I mean some really good news!
Maybe you have fallen back down into porn, masturbation or even having sex before marriage!
Maybe you have fallen back down into the brand new World of warcraft expansion pack or any of the other games that have come out for Christmas season.
Maybe you have fallen back down into alcohol again, I know I have fallen down into alcohol many times too in the past 8 years.
Maybe you have fallen back down into drugs, into sadness, loneliness and depression etc etc!
Maybe you have been gossiping a lot, or back-biting people, or slandering other people......
But here is the good news now --->>>>
GOD is NOT condemning you!
I say it again.............. GOD IS NOT condemning you!
But you might ask -->> Garrett! How is that possible!
Because GOD is TRUE to HIS own word!
Because -->>> Romans 8:1 - There is now NO condemnation for those in
Brothers and sisters listen up! There is NO condemnation for those of us in CHRIST JESUS! None whatsoever!
GOD is NOT condemning you as you are right now battling against the same old sinful things and the same old addictions once again!
GOD loves you and GOD sees his son JESUS' righteousness covering you!
GOD loves you and he sees his son JESUS' blood covering you!
GOD sees you as righteous! I say it again, GOD sees JESUS in you and JESUS is our righteousness!
Here is more good news -->>
GOD is not shaming you! That is correct, I say it again -> GOD is not shaming you either!
Even as you might of fallen back down into the most hideous porn sites, GOD is NOT shaming you!
JESUS took all of your shame up on the cross with himself, when he was on the cross naked in front of all of the people!
I say it again! JESUS took your shame up on the cross with himself! GOD is not shaming you even now as you have fallen back down into the same old sins and addictions once again!
So what do we have so far? We have that GOD is NOT condemning you and GOD is NOT shaming you either!
But there is one more I want to talk about tonight --->>>>
Even tonight as you might of fallen back down once again say into alcohol, or drugs, or porn, or loneliness, or even depression, GOD is not holding you guilty!
I know that last one is very very hard for many of you to believe, but GOD is NOT holding you guilty either!
Why? How can this be? You mean to tell me Garrett, that even as I sin each night, GOD in heaven who is HOLY is NOT holding me guilty for all of this?
Yes child of GOD, that is EXACTLY what I am saying to you!
Because JESUS took all of your sins up on the cross with him! I mean ALL OF THEM, past, present and future sins!
So as you remain in JESUS, guess what? Your past, present and future sins are ALL FORGIVEN by the death of JESUS on the cross.
I say it again, all of your sins are forgiven from the second you were born to the second you die as you remain in JESUS even during these terrible battles against sinning and addictions!
I say it again -->>>> GOD sees you as FAULTLESS!!!!!
Look at this ->
Ephesians 1:4 - 4 Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes.
Now I know this is very hard to believe, especially if you have not been reading the bible much at all the last few years, but it is true!
GOD SEES YOU AS COMPLETELY FAULTLESS IN HIS OWN EYES!
I know just a short time ago, I never believed this either! But it is true!
GOD sees us as completely faultless as we are in his son JESUS Christ!
Your past, your present, even your future sins are all FORGIVEN as long as you remain in the LORD JESUS!
What I am sharing with you tonight is a tiny part of the GOOD NEWS OF THE GOSPELS OF JESUS CHRIST, and this is not just good news, this is GREAT news for you and your life!
So since GOD is not condemning you for your current sins, why are you self condemning yourself?
Why are you holding on to the self condemnation? Why are you doing this when GOD is NOT condemning you?
Since GOD is not shaming you, why are you holding on to the shame of falling back down again into the same old sins and addictions?
Why are you walking around in shame day and night, shaming yourself? I mean GOD is NOT shaming you, so why are you shaming yourself?
Since GOD is NOT holding you guilty for these current sins, why are you holding yourself guilty?
Since GOD tells us through Paul that HE sees you as completely faultless, why are you making yourself out to be guilty?
Child of GOD, you are holy, you are HOLY all because of what JESUS did for you! And because of this, GOD sees you as holy and faultless in his eyes and his eyes are all that matter!
Not because I say so, but because the bible says so!
So how exactly is it that you became holy?
When you accepted GOD'S grace and JESUS entered your life, JESUS NOW COVERS YOU WITH HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS! When you accepted JESUS, JESUS gave you his righteousness and he took your terrible, filthy disgusting life like he did mine too!
Because JESUS gave you and is covering you with his righteousness, GOD his DAD now sees you as righteous and holy in his own eyes! This exchange was done on the cross. When JESUS died, he gave you a free gift. Yes he gave you his righteousness and in return, he took your terrible life into himself and crucified it on the cross!
GOD sees JESUS' righteousness covering you, he sees JESUS' blood covering you, in fact, GOD does not even see you! GOD sees his son JESUS in you and that is one of the most amazing gifts that GOD could ever give us!
You do NOT have to feel the shame anymore tonight because you fell back down again into porn, drugs, lying, stealing etc etc!
You do not have to feel the guilt anymore because you might of fell back down into Internet gaming, sex or masturbation!
You do not have to feel the earth shattering condemnation or self condemnation anymore all because you fell back down into old addictions once again.
Now I had nobody to teach me this, so because that is true, I would shame, guilt and self condemn myself nearly to spiritual death! And this type of suffering went on for years and years throughout my life.
So if you have fallen back down into the same old sins once again, here is step 1 that you want to start practicing ->
1). Let the shame, guilt and condemnation go right away! Let it fly right out the window of your soul and be free from that evil garbage.
Did you notice I called the - Shame, guilt and condemnation evil? I sure did because it is evil! As you walk around self shaming yourself, holding yourself guilty and self condemning yourself you are breaking multiple holy bible scriptures.
Did you know there are demons who go by the name of - Shame, guilt and condemnation, and or self condemnation too!
There sure are and these evil spirits are attacking you right now at this time in your life as you have fallen back down into old sins and addictions!
But how are they attacking you?
They are lying to you!
These evil spirits are telling you that GOD is ashamed of you, and when you believe this, the demon of shame attacks you with shame!
Then another evil spirit tells you that GOD is holding you guilty! And when you believe this demonic lie, you get attacked by the demon of guilt with guilt!
Then another spirit tells you that GOD is condemning you! And when you believe this, you get attacked by the demon of self condemnation with condemnation/self condemnation!
We cannot believe these demonic lies, we must not, we cannot afford to listen to these doctrines of demons which are the exact opposite of what the holy bible says.
And guess what? These attacks are vicious and very very real!
And as you continue to think shameful things about yourself, you get demonically attacked with shame more and more and more as the days crawl by.....
As you continue to think guilty thoughts about yourself, you will get attacked with more and more guilt!
As you continue to think condemning thoughts about yourself, you will get attacked by the demon with even more self condemnation!
And after a few days or weeks of this, your entire spiritual life will completely collapse and you over the next month or two, you might hit absolute rock bottom!
I have hit rock bottom many times in my life, so have you, it is not fun!!
The evil spirits are lying to you! You CANNOT, you MUST NOT listen to them!
GOD is not shaming you! GOD sees JESUS in you and that is a very very GOOD THING, because JESUS is holy, rightous and perfect..
And that is exactly how GOD sees you!
GOD is not holding you guilty, GOD knows his son JESUS died for your sins 2000 years ago! GOD sees you as FAULTLESS and this is what you want to start practicing each day also!
You want to practice exactly what the bible says, and believe that GOD sees you as faultless and rebuke the lies from the demons, rebuke the terrible teachers who tell you that you will lose your salvation etc etc..... Those are all pure lies!
GOD is not condemning you! I say it again so it gets through to your heart, GOD is NOT condemning you!
You are holy, righteous and completely faultless in GOD'S eyes and only GOD matters here!
It is a complete waste of time to worry about what you think about yourself, or what your family thinks about you, or your friends, or your Christian friends at church....
All of that is pure garbage.
It only matters what GOD thinks of you and GOD loves you, he sees you as holy and righteous in his eyes!
Can everyone say -> Praise GOD!!!!
Now all of this great news is NOT permission for you to keep sinning, or to keep staying in the current addictions as long as you want. Nothing could be farther from the truth!
All of this great incredible news is not a license for you to keep sinning in whatever sinful topics you have fallen down into!
Because when we do sin, our flesh gets too strong and now we are in big big trouble!!! As we sin our flesh gets stronger and stronger and in no time at all, it becomes to strong for us and now we CANNOT stop sinning in whatever sinful topic we might be stuck in!
And when we do sin GOD quite often uses the demons to correct us, and to discipline us too! Now that is not very pleasant when GOD hands us over to the demons to be corrected and disciplined!
Once our flesh gets strong, now it attracts the demons just like sharks are attracted to blood. Now our flesh is out of control, it attracts more demons to us, and guess what happens next?
They both tag team us and take us down into terrible sinful events!
Or they tag team us and bring back old addictions into our lives, yes even addictions that JESUS has set us free from years earlier!
The flesh I am talking about here is the sinful carnal nature that lives inside of every single human being on earth!
Now even though all of that is true, GOD still sees us as completely holy and righteous in his son JESUS!
GOD is not shaming you, GOD is not holding you guilty tonight, and GOD is NOT condemning you either!
Step 1 - Let the shame, guilt and condemnation go as fast as you can and I am NOT saying this is easy!
I am not even saying I am good at this either!
I am only telling you that GOD wants us all to practice letting the shame, guilt and condemnation go when we do mess up, and yes we are going to mess up in our lives, this is for sure!
GOD loves you, he adores you, he is on fire for you, GOD accepts you completely all because of what his son JESUS did on the cross for you.
So how can we let the shame, guilt and condemnation go?
I THOUGHT YOU KNEW it is all GOD'S GRACE!!!
We cannot let the shame, guilt or condemnation go without GOD'S grace, that is for sure. EVERYTHING IS GRACE, everything we ever receive is a free gift from GOD!
So how can we get more grace so we can let all of that garbage go? HUMBLE YOURSELF and start seeking out his son JESUS in a closer relationship!
Start really elevating your prayer life each day, and you will see more and more of GOD'S grace raining down into your life too!
So we have abiding in JESUS, humbling ourselves and praying much more than we have been as the game plan GOD is giving us to get more grace into our lives!
The more we humble ourselves, the chances are GOD will send more grace into our lives and we will kick that shame, guilt & condemnation right out of us!
That means kicking it out of our minds, our thoughts, our imaginations and out of our heart and soul too where the demons are living!
When we have fallen back down into the same old sins, is the time that we have to humble ourselves more than ever before!
Start humbling yourself day and night and GOD will send grace to you and THAT IS WHEN YOU KICK that evil shame, guilt & condemnation out! When GOD sends that grace/power/strength/mercy and protection raining down from heaven into your life is when freedom can finally come! Freedom from the shame, guilt and self condemnation that you have been holding on to for months and months at a time.
You do this in your mind, you do this in your heart, you do this by using the authority GOD gave you over this evil in the holy bible!
Luke 9:1 - JESUS gave them POWER & AUTHORITY to cast OUT all demons, and to HEAL all diseases!
Right there is one example among many in the holy bible where GOD tells you that you have power and authority over the evil that is attacking you!
Child of GOD.............. Get that evil shame out of you tonight!
We have to STOP thinking those shameful thoughts, those guilty thoughts, the condemning thoughts!
You are NOT ashamed, JESUS took your shame up on the cross with him and crucified it!
Child of GOD, get that evil guilt out of you! You are NOT guilty, JESUS took all of your guilt up on the cross with himself too.....
Child of GOD, stop self condemning yourself when GOD sees you as righteous!
JESUS' righteousness is still covering you............... You are righteous in JESUS so let the condemnation go already and be free today, be free in your heart and soul even as you battle against sinning and addictions!
Stop thinking those bad thoughts and the demons will most likely leave! It is the bad thoughts that you are holding on to that are allowing the demons to stay with you, to torment you, to attack you each day that goes by!
Or better yet, stop all bad thoughts and cast out the demons of shame, guilt and condemnation and speed up the process healing process here in your life.
Now! When will you be free once again from the porn? Only JESUS knows!! But you are not guilty! You are not shamed! You are not condemned!
So when will you be free from the drugs, alcohol, lying and gossip? Only JESUS knows, but get that evil shame out of you tonight! Stop shaming yourself because GOD is not ashamed of you!
So how long will this latest episode of Internet gaming go? Only JESUS knows but let the condemnation go right out the window of your soul and be free from that evil tonight!
Child of GOD, GOD loves you!
I say it again, GOD loves you! I know this is hard to believe at times, boy do I know that real well!
But GOD loves you!!!!!!!!!!
GOD is on your side. GOD is not beating you with a club just because you fell back down into sadness, loneliness and depression!
GOD is on your side, look at this -->>>
Romans 8:31 – if GOD is for us, who could ever be against us!
GOD is not spanking you just because you fell back down into old addictions once again, and why would he?
After all! He sees only his powerful, incredible son JESUS inside of you!
So why would he spank you?
GOD will use these circumstances for your good, just watch and see, it will turn out for your good I absolutely guarantee this. But how can I be so sure about this?
Because -> Romans 8:28 – And we know that GOD uses all things for the GOOD of those who love GOD and are called according to his purposes!
That is how I can be so sure that GOD will use these current events in your life and turn it all around to bless you, he will for sure just watch and see!
So even though things are going quite bad now, still even so let the shame, guilt and condemnation go already and start practicing being free in JESUS even during addictions and sinning.
You practice being free in JESUS during the addictions by doing this in your mind, in your thoughts, in your imaginations, in your heart and in your soul!
Trust JESUS, HE knows when to set you free! Relax tonight!!!!
Just start humbling yourself day and night and keep praying for help as you patiently go through these addictions!
Be patient, JESUS knows the perfect time, the perfect day, the perfect hour and second to set you free once again! HE set you free in the past, and he will do it again. Not because you are good or special, do not make me laugh. He will set you and I free because HE is special! Because he is wonderful! Because he is glorious and faithful!
I am NOT saying it is OK to watch porn tonight or to play World of warcraft, I am just saying to STOP shaming yourself over it!
Stop holding yourself guilty over it all!
Stop condemning yourself over these addictions and start humbling yourself and practicing resting in JESUS! You relax with JESUS even during terrible sinning in your mind, in your heart, in your soul and STOP all of the bad thoughts!
Stop the bad thoughts that you might lose your salvation, THAT IS PURE GARBAGE! How on earth can you lose your salvation when GOD sees you as COMPLETELY FAULTLESS in his eyes? It is impossible and those are lies from the pit of hell!
Of course the demons are telling you that you might lose your salvation! Those are all lies, pure garbage and pure evil!
You are not losing your salvation because you fell down again, and you never will lose your salvation, so relax with JESUS tonight and be free from all of that fleshly and demonic tormenting you have been living in the last few months!
But you might say -->>> Garrett! How can I relax when I am stuck watching porn every night?
I know how you feel! These things are hard to learn, they are hard to talk about too, they are hard to practice too, that is for sure! But start practicing to rest and relax in JESUS even during the terrible sinning. Even after the terrible sinning is over!
Start practicing to give all of your shame, guilt and condemnation all to JESUS and be free from that evil! Be free from that garbage, and as you continue to practice, GOD will help you to get better and better at it!
So as I say goodbye for now, brothers and sisters, let the shame go already, stop shaming yourself! Let the feelings and thoughts of being guilty go, you are NOT guilty! JESUS took all of your guilt up on the cross!
And stop self condemning yourself, stop it, stop it and stop it and practice being free in JESUS Christ no matter what is going on in your life!
Rest in JESUS even during the sinning! Keep practicing to rest in JESUS.
So let the shame, guilt and condemnation go, get those 3 demons out of you too, and be more and more free even during the terrible times of battling against addictions and failures.
GOD loves you! I say it again..... GOD loves you! One more time... GOD loves you!
GOD LOVES YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
