You don’t know what to do, just start over. Repent of the past. Father in Jesus name, forgive me for sinning against you, and for not being what you have called me to be. Forgive me for grieving your Holy Spirit, and now fill me with your Spirit that I may put to death the misdeeds of my body (Romans 8:12-14). Amen.
Now, start over with the right Spirit (John 6:63) by reading your Bible constantly out loud, especially from the New Testament. Kingdom teaching is only found in the New Testament (Luke 16:16), and God’s righteous is only explained or revealed in the New Testament (Romans 1:16-17). Kingdom teaching does not remain in those who reject it, speak against it, or don’t understand it (Mark 4:24-25, 1 Timothy 6:20-21, Matthew 13:18-21).
Now you know why so many only preach out of the Old Testament, and even when they try to quote the New Testament, what they say is not written in the way that they teach it. That’s because Kingdom teaching has been taken from them.
Real disciples of Jesus Christ “hold to the teachings” (John 8:31-32, 1 Corinthians 15:1-2, 2 Thessalonians 2:13-15), and give up their desires for the Kingdom of God (Mark 10:29-30, Luke 14:25-33).
That may be a hard teaching, but it is the only way to find life rather than losing your life (Matthew 16:24-25, John 12:25-26). We cannot live by what we have believed in the past and not end up back in the same place we are now a few years later. Our words and beliefs have taken us where we are today (James 3:2-12, Ephesians 4:17-19). It’s time to read Our Bibles and allow them to tell us what to believe and what to do.
Don’t be confused by what you see (2 Corinthians 5:7). Don’t allow a pot of gold and the lure of wealth by those who have sold out to this world to get you off track (Matthew 4:8-9). Satan’s ministers will play off of your desires for money, but they will not teach you to obey the Gospel, since then they would not be receiving your money (2 Corinthians 11:3-4, 13-15). Anyone who is not teaching you to obey the Gospel is not trying to make a disciple of Jesus Christ out of you, but their own follower (Matthew 28:19-20). Don’t be tricked!
Get your Bible out and start reading it for yourself. Start with Matthew and read it every day like it is more important than eating and you will begin to see what I am saying. Do what your Bible says to do, no matter what anyone else tells you.
I’ve met hundreds of people called Christians who had believed what was false and was shocked to learn how different the Christian life is from what they were taught. Some of them had been Christians for twenty years, but never learned the truth in church. They saw the Word for the first time in their life, in black and white, and realized that they were on the wrong track.
Live by our new agreement with the Lord. Read it and do what it says. The old agreement is obsolete.
Hebrews 8:13 In that He says, “A new covenant,” He has made the first obsolete. Now what is becoming obsolete and growing old is ready to vanish away. NKJV
The new agreement is better and it has better promises. The only people who will keep you under the old agreement are the ones who love your money.
Hebrews 8:6 But now He has obtained a more excellent ministry, inasmuch as He is also Mediator of a better covenant, which was established on better promises. NKJV
If you have a question, please ask.
