Addiction Free in 3 Days PART 1
In these two videos, I’m going to cover how to be free from an addiction in 3 days, according to what is written in the Bible (verses included). So, if you have an addiction, a bad habit, a craving, a dependency, from crack, to sexual sins, to alcoholics, to drug addictions, and you are willing to believe the Bible, then this is my attempt to help you.
You will hear the Word of God here, and see the scriptures to back it up! Watch both videos and more importantly, be sure to believe scriptures in your heart, and be determined to never speak against them, since we cannot possibly believe what we speak against.
There should not be any such thing as an addiction among Bible believing Christians, and I will show you that absolutely free of charge and help you along the way, even if you never buy my books. Watch the videos and learn the verses for yourself. Got questions, contact me afterwards.
I know what the Word of God living in a person can do, not only by witnessing it in the lives of others, but also in my own life. The Lord has allowed me to help people from all over the world, free of charge, in matters concerning sin, deliverance, and healing. Praise be to the Lord God almighty!
Addiction Free in 3 Days PART 2
Every person I have ever worked with that had an addiction was already saved, but most of them didn’t think they were because of what they had been taught. All they needed to do was to repent of the past and start over in keeping with God’s instructions found in His Word, and avoid worldly wisdom. It’s really just that simple.
The evidence of being filled with God’s grace and His love can be seen in the life of a Christian through the absence of worldliness (Titus 2:11-12, 1 John 2:15), and the willingness to share with those in need (1 John 3:17), because that is what God’s grace and love living in us will make us do. Watch the videos, and if you have any questions afterwards, contact me. Part 3 of this video series is “How To Have a Relationship With Jesus.”
If you want to stop sinning, but don’t know how then start learning how sin works on the Can We Stop Sinning, Should we stop sinning, and How to stop sinning pages of this site. There are a lot of things that everyday Christians have been taught that need to be corrected, and a lot of things that most do not know, even if they have been attending church services for twenty years. Learn the basics, and again, above all be careful to believe every scripture in your heart.
A life-style change
If you have already read the other articles then please allow me to show you some things that can make the biggest difference between being set free from sins that lead to death and spending a life time of trying.
If you are ready for results, believing the scriptures in your heart is number one in my book, point blank period. Unbelievers can go for days, months, and some even years, but if you want to drop it like a hot potato, and never have an uncontrollable desire to pick it up again, then you better believe every scripture in your heart, which means that you cannot waver through unbelief against the things that God has promised (Romans 4:20), or speak against them, even in your heart (Romans 10:6-8). Check it!
I’m not talking about the Jesus you hear about in your church, but the One you will read about in the scriptures. He is the one who will deliver the godly from temptation, and hold those who refuse to live by faith for the day of judgment.
2 Peter 2:9
9 then the Lord knows how to deliver the godly out of temptations and to reserve the unjust under punishment for the day of judgment, NKJV
If I had to put it in everyday terms, I would say that the godly are sold out to Jesus Christ; bought at a price (1 Corinthians 6:20). They’re all in and unashamed. On the other hand, the unjust still have one foot in the world. As quick as they receive what they need from God, they will go right back to living for themselves.
They reject scriptures like 2 Corinthians 5:14-15, Romans 12:1-2, and Galatians 2:20 to name a few. Read those passages of scripture below, out loud so that you can hear them in your ears.
2 Corinthians 5:14-15
14 For the love of Christ compels us, because we judge thus: that if One died for all, then all died; 15 and He died for all, that those who live should live no longer for themselves, but for Him who died for them and rose again. NKJV
Jesus Christ died in our place, which purchased our life (1 Corinthians 6:20). Without that, we would be dead; hopelessly lost forever. Therefore, our reasonable service back to God for what He has done for us is to give Him our life (verse 1 below).
1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. 2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God. NKJV
Knowing this we voluntarily die with Christ through our baptism (verse 3 below), in order that we may walk in the new way (verse 4 below).
1 What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin that grace may abound? 2 Certainly not! How shall we who died to sin live any longer in it? 3 Or do you not know that as many of us as were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into His death? 4 Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. NKJV
Just as Christ died to sin, and lives to God (verse 10 below), so too we die to sin (verse 11-12 below) and offer our members (body parts, hands, eyes, etc) as instruments of righteousness to God (verse 13 below).
Romans 6:10-13 NKJV
10 For the death that He died, He died to sin once for all; but the life that He lives, He lives to God. 11 Likewise you also, reckon yourselves to be dead indeed to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus our Lord. 12 Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body, that you should obey it in its lusts. 13 And do not present your members as instruments of unrighteousness to sin, but present yourselves to God as being alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness to God. NKJV
When a Christian first comes for help, they believe that God is just going to make their problem go away, but what they soon discover is that they have to give up their life for Jesus, in service to God. It’s a life style change, and most are unwilling to do that.
One of the reasons is because they hear so many stories of how people used to have addictions, and now they live seemingly normal lives, and that’s all they want. However, here is the problem with that. No one who lives according to the flesh belongs to Christ (Romans 8:9). Let me explain.
9 But you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. Now if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he is not His. NKJV
So, what would be the difference between a Christian who got rid of an addiction, but they still participated in the things found in verse 20 below?
19 Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, 20 idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, 21 envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God. NKJV
Which one of those sins DOES NOT prevent a saved person from having an inheritance in the Kingdom of God? We focus on the obvious sins, or what I call the socially none-acceptable sins like being a drunk, a drug addict, or a homosexual, but God’s list of sins that lead to death is much longer.
You can stop obvious sins (2 Timothy 5:24) and go slam to the top of just about any Christian organization out there today, and still not make it into Heaven because of sins on the list above. That’s because our focus is on stopping obvious sins, which is sins that we can’t hide like some addictions, and not on following our instructions found in scripture.
The focus of those who belong to Christ is crucifying their flesh, and not just stopping their addiction long enough to fit right back in with the people of the world.
24 And those who are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. NKJV
Therefore, they stop living for themselves, and start living by faith in Jesus Christ.
20 I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me. NKJV
The way they learn Christ (verse 20 below) is by putting off the old person (verse 22 below), being renewed in their minds with the Word of God (verse 23 below, Romans 12:1-2 above), and putting on the new person (verse 24 below), which is Christ like (Romans 8:29, 1 John 2:6, 4:17).
20 But you have not so learned Christ, 21 if indeed you have heard Him and have been taught by Him, as the truth is in Jesus: 22 that you put off, concerning your former conduct, the old man which grows corrupt according to the deceitful lusts, 23 and be renewed in the spirit of your mind, 24 and that you put on the new man which was created according to God, in true righteousness and holiness. NKJV
Now you should be able to see the meaning of “old things have passed away, behold all things have become new.” If we are still in the flesh, Christ is not in us (Romans 8:9 above).
2 Corinthians 5:17
17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. NKJV
Millions of Christians have been deceived today in main-stream denominations all over the country. If we were living by faith, then these scriptures would be common in the church today, but most church attending Christians will boldly take a stand against these scriptures in this country.
Jesus will rescue the godly, or the just from temptations (2 Peter 2:9 above), and the just live by faith (Romans 1:16-17), but the unjust does not live by faith. We were all justified by the blood (Romans 5:9), and by grace (Titus 3:7, Romans 3:24), but the Gospel calls those who were justified to now live by faith.
Ask any preacher if we are justified, and he is going to say yes, but he won’t mention living by faith as a condition (Hebrews 10:38-39, Colossians 1:21-23). Therefore, know that you are going to have to know the scriptures for yourself or you will be led away (Ephesians 4:13-14).
Consider the things I have said and decide if you want to live the rest of your life here on earth for God in accordance with His instructions found in His Word, or if you just want to fit back in with the people of this world, who will be condemned in the end.
According to God’s Word, can we stop sinning (cease from sin, verse 1 below) in this life-time (verse 2 below)? Check the scriptures below before you speak against them and know who has been lying to you for years.
1 Peter 4:1-5
1 Therefore, since Christ suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves also with the same mind, for he who has suffered in the flesh has ceased from sin, 2 that he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh for the lusts of men, but for the will of God. 3 For we have spent enough of our past lifetime in doing the will of the Gentiles—when we walked in lewdness, lusts, drunkenness, revelries, drinking parties, and abominable idolatries. 4 In regard to these, they think it strange that you do not run with them in the same flood of dissipation, speaking evil of you. 5 They will give an account to Him who is ready to judge the living and the dead.
