Pt. 3: Harsh Visions To See: Profanity Of Profanities: Immolaters Of Desire (Celestial)

Profanity of Profanities: Immolaters of Desire, Pt 3 – June 12, 2019

And now we come to it.

CAVEAT: This word is a strongly declarative word with distressing imagery and young people should not read it unless supervised. I’d say they should not read it at all, but unfortunately teenagers and even some younger than that are both involved in these practices, though some are involved clearly against their will. Parents warn your children against sexual sin- you will be sad to see them fall into judgement later on. It is hard for me to see these things; it is upsetting people are doing this and that I have to see it. Please be advised, I am told to hold NOTHING back and therefore I will not. 

The Lord woke me up at 9:02 a.m this morning with the words- Immolaters of Desire. He said it twice more, “Immolaters of Desire”. I know that word “immolate”; it is not frequently used at all anymore. Here is it’s meaning:

Immolate from the Cambridge English Dictionary: To kill yourself or someone else with fire, or to destroy something, usually by burning, in a formal ceremony. 

I have seen an evil, the Lord said to me, among the sons of men. So I asked, “What is the evil Lord?” His response was to show me an image. I saw a person bent forward on a bed or stool, and another person was stuffing what looked like a string of pearls of varying sizes into their back door private part. From the shape of their bodies I knew it was two men doing this; I could see their hairy forearms and huge thighs, and I was upset why I had to see it. I said Lord ‘Why do I have to see this?’ His reply was, “Because they weary Me everyday with this evil, and my prophets show no sign of awareness this is going on. Therefore see what I see, that you will know why I am enflamed by their continual evil. These people do this to test my Spirit, they incite Me to continual anger every day.”

After He spoke I began to see pictures roll by like a high school presentation:

A woman on her back while another woman also used these same ‘pearls’ of varying sizes on her front area; (these things look like rosary beads but some of the beads are quite large, and they are connected on a string in varying sizes whose purpose is to.. apparently to give whatever form of sensations to the receiver.)

A woman bent double with a man behind her, using her back door private area;

Two men in the same position, and the sound they made was terrible for me to hear;

A woman tied to a bedpost with a man dressed as a burglar, approaching her naked with a “tool belt” around his waist and a burglar mask on. The man was very convincing and sinister in his acting, so much so that the woman looked nervous and terrified but also happy. I saw nailed over this bed a black wooden sign that said: ‘THE RAPIST GAME.’

People laying together in two’s and three’s, all in the same bed. Above some of the beds was nailed a black wooden sign with the words “MARITAL BED” and an angry nail driven through it, right into the wall. So I understood some of these people in groups in the beds were married people, because in the twining of bodies I saw flashes of marital hardware (i.e. rings). But the hands clasping each other sometimes were two men’s hands, one with a ring and one without. Or two women’s hands, both with rings. Married men and women leave their homes and go to be with others of their same sex, and their opposite sex spouses at home do not know anything about this.

Among those grouped in one bed I saw a man and a woman with the same type of ring- same band, same shape, same inscription- so I knew they were a couple. Yet there was another man or woman in the same bed with them, rolling in the sheets with them and having access to both of them for sexual purposes, even though they were a married couple who should have access only to each other. This means some couples are actively inviting others to join them in the sacred act which should only be between them.

There was a long row of beds, the Lord made me walk past all of them and look in each one. I saw many things and my heart was filled with dread because I did not want to see. The darkness in these rooms and over the beds was terrible, and in those shadows I could hear the laughing and extreme excitement of DEMONS. Because the Lord was with me I was able to complete looking in all the beds and fled.

Children were in some of these beds, small children who do not know anything about these matters, they were only crying and crying. Some were not touched, only terrorised by adults and shown private areas of adults they should not see. These children WEPT even more than the ones who were touched, because their terror was of the mind, of not understanding what was going on and why they had to be there. Some were in their own bedrooms and when their room doors opened the children turned themselves into cartoons and began to play in their minds to avoid what they knew was coming to them- I saw silhouetted in the bedroom door the Big Bad Wolf, and the child turned herself into Red Riding Hood. I saw the Evil queen of Rapunzel come through the door, and the child turned himself into the Handsome Prince, and began to play in his mind while the hands of the grown woman were on his small body.

Some of the children were touched, and these children sometimes had no tears. Some were still crying because they were in pain, they were small children whose bodies are not ready or INTENDED for this kind of thing, but the majority had no tears because they had turned to STONE. They had turned to rocks – the Lord showed me these children as different sized ROCKS upon their beds as the adult men and women had sexual intercourse with them many times. The souls of the children had been damaged, fractured, broken and as a result their souls were hardened far beyond their years. These children were in the homes of their parents, godparents, step-parents, grandparents, grandmothers, family friends, relatives and visiting at friends homes. All  of them ranged in age, I saw one as big as 18 years old. The eyes of this girl were like a Raggedy Ann doll; they had no emotion whatsoever. The girl was covered with tattoos on her arms and legs and her eyes were completely emotionless. I saw the spirit of death waiting for this girl, standing right by the bed- she was going to kill herself soon because she could not go on with the abuse anymore. The man on top of her was her father.

In some of these beds I did not see people, or only people. Many of the beds held snakes, pets and other things along with people. One bed held a crocodile reading a newspaper. He was wearing expensive brogues and a Patek Philippe watch, his legs which were long and human length but scaly and reptile-like, were crossed with shoes on the end, and he was reading the Washington Post. I do not understand whether this means the occupant has a crocodile or leviathan spirit, or if it was an actual crocodile that can take the shape of a man when it wants to. The woman next to him was fast asleep and oblivious, and I saw the crocodile glance over to her from time to time with an assessing look on his face. And written on the crocodile’s heart were the words: “NOT YET”. This animal had a plan for this woman in the bed, she was oblivious, and the time of the plan is “NOT YET”.

I saw many other things, the Lord highlighted specific things and gave a proclamation over them. They will be posted as the series continues, please pay close attention to the scriptures below. 

Marriage should be honoured by all and the marriage bed kept undefiled, for God will judge the sexually immoral and adulterers. – (Hebrews 13:4)

Flee [run, beat a hasty retreat] from sexual immorality. Every other sin a man can commit is outside his body, but he who commits sexual sins, sins against his own body. – (1 Corinthians 6:18)

But whosoever shall cause one of these little ones who believe in Me to FALL, it would be better for him that a millstone were hung about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depths of the sea. – (Matthew 18:6)

Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be DECEIVED (fooled); no fornicators, or idolaters, or adulterers, or any who are guilty of unnatural sexual crimes, or homosexuals, or thieves, or the covetous, or drunkards, or revilers, or con artists (swindlers), will inherit the kingdom of God.

Realities Of The Unseen Realm | Guest Speaker Ex-Satanist John Ramirez

Realities Of The Unseen Realm | Guest Speaker Ex-Satanist John Ramirez

I attended his 2 day conference he laid hands on me and 2 of my strongholds went. No longer desired to binge watch movies for hours on end and played games on cell, my way of distressing. Next day I had no desire to waste my time on those things. Now I have more time to pray and study the Bible.
John Ramirez’s testimony saved my life. God knew it took someone like him to gage my interest. He’s REAL & he’s blunt,no sugarcoating! He’s very transparent about the kingdom of darkness and Satan. I needed to hear this. I needed to hear how real this stuff is. It made me check myself so quick, and fully submit myself unto God. I stumbled on him during a dark time in my life. God definitely used his testimony to reach me. I was lukewarm before I stumbled on his teachings. I claimed to be Christian but I didn’t have an intimate relationship with Jesus. I was lukewarm, I was in bondage to sin. My eyes are now OPEN, hallelujah 🙏🏽 No more compromising!! I am no longer a SLAVE! I’ve learned SO much about spiritual warfare thanks to John Ramirez, glory be to God! His testimony is profound. Jesus truly saves the lost. Our God is faithful! We serve a mighty God ✝️💖🙏🏽💜
How lazy I am. I repent for being a lazy Christian. This is our biggest downfall. Thank you brother John for the pep talk.
Ex Muslim here after saw JESUS Lord Amen. Soon im gonna do video about my testimony. ✝️✝️✝️✝️✝️💘💘💘💘😭😭😭🙏🙏🙏

How Verses Are Misunderstood By Gentiles: Gentiles & The Sabbath-(Zion.org)

How Verses Are Misunderstood By Gentiles: Gentiles & The Sabbath-(Zion.org)

Gentiles and the Sabbath


“To be intellectually honest, we must pursue the truth, even when continuing along familiar paths might feel more comfortable.” From To Be A Jewish Woman by Lisa Aiken

The question is often asked, “I’m a gentile, do I have to keep the Sabbath?” In the spirit of the above mentioned quote, we will pursue the topic of Gentiles and the Sabbath.

Here are the main reasons given by the Church for not keeping the Sabbath on the Seventh day of the week.

1. “Let no man judge you concerning keeping of holy days, Sabbaths, new moons or festivals.”

2. Jesus rose from the dead on Sunday, the first day of the week.

3. Today, no one knows which day is the true Sabbath.

4. Early believers met together to break bread on the first day of the week.

5.  “Sunday represents the ‘eighth day’ for Christians.”

6. We are no longer under the law, for “Christ was the end of the law”.

7. Yeshua “fulfilled the law”.

I will address each of these points as we proceed.

The majority of the concepts against Sabbath observance by the church community can be addressed swiftly and easily with a short but concise history lesson.

The date on which the church changed its day of worship cannot be pinpointed. Many would like to believe that the Apostle Paul changed it, but this can be proven historically inaccurate. It can be established that the church made the changes to its stance on the Sabbath post second century. The following information was gathered from the Internet URL: http://www.websfrontpage.com/biblestudies/Bible%20Studies/125/lesson101.htm
Notice!!! Using these quotes does not constitute an endorsement for this WEB site or other information contained therein.

    • All things whatsoever that it was duty to do on the Sabbath, these we have transferred to the Lord’s day.

Eusebius’s Commentary on the Psalms, in Migne, Patrologia Graeca, Vol. XXIII, col. 1171

WHAT DID SYLVESTER, BISHOP OF ROME, 314 A.D. TO 337 A.D.,  DO FOR THE SUNDAY INSTITUTION BY HIS “APOSTOLIC  AUTHORITY”?
He officially changed the title of the first day, calling it the Lord’s day.
Historia Ecclesiastica, by M. Ludovicum Lucium, cent. 4, cap.10, pages 739, 740, edition Basilea, 1624

WHAT DID THE COUNCIL OF LAODICEA DECREE IN 364 A.D.?
Canon 29. Christians shall not Judaize and be idle on Saturday [Sabbath], but shall work on that day; but the Lord’s day they shall especially honor.
A History of the Councils of the Church, Charles Joseph Hefele, Vol. II, page 316

HOW LATE DID CHRISTIANS KEEP THE SABBATH?
Down even to the fifth century, the observance of the Jewish Sabbath was continued in the Christian church.
Lyman Coleman’s Ancient Christianity Exemplified, chapter 26, sec.2

HOW GENERALLY DOES THE HISTORIAN SOCRATES, WHO WROTE ABOUT THE MIDDLE OF THE FIFTH CENTURY, SAY THE SABBATH WAS OBSERVED BY THE CHRISTIAN CHURCHES OF HIS TIME?
Although almost all churches throughout the world celebrate the sacred mysteries on the Sabbath of every week, yet the Christians of Alexandria and at Rome, on account of some ancient tradition, refuse to do this.
Socrates’s Ecclesiastical History, book 5, chapter 22

Taking into account that the New Testament writings were done in the first century, we can conclude that the authors of the New Testament had no desire to change the day of worship from Sabbath to Sunday or they would have clearly given this commandment.

The purpose of the Sabbath day is quite revealing.

The rabbis tell us the Sabbath day is a miniature picture of olam habah (the age to come) when Messiah will be king and there will never again be inequity or want. The Sabbath is also how we know we are worshipping the G-d of Creation, because He created for six days and rested on Shabbat (the seventh day). In Judaism, we are counted as sons when we do what the father does.

    • (1 John 3:8-10 KJV)  “

He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil. {9} Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. {10} In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.

    “And how do we know what sin is?

    • (1 John 3:4 KJV) “

Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law (Torah): for sin is the transgression of the law.

Now to address the points of argument.

1.  (Colossians 2:16)  “Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days:

Colossians 2:16 is most often taken out of context and used to prove that the Sabbath has changed and that it doesn’t matter what day you worship on. The fact is that this verse proves that the Colossians were keeping the Sabbath, holy-days, moons and watching their diet, and that there were some Jews accusing them that they were not observing these things properly. Now notice the conclusion to this dialogue.

    • (Col 2:20-23 KJV)

Wherefore if ye be dead with Christ from the rudiments of the world, why, as though living in the world, are ye subject to ordinances, {21} (Touch not; taste not; handle not; {22} Which all are to perish with the using;) after the commandments and doctrines of men? {23} Which things have indeed a show of wisdom in will worship, and humility, and neglecting of the body; not in any honour to the satisfying of the flesh.

Verse 22 specifically states that they were being bothered by the doctrines of men. It does not say by the commandments or doctrines of G-d. Men were accusing the Colossians of improperly keeping the Sabbath. Paul said, “Let no man therefore judge you in …” To use this verse as a proof that Christians may keep any day they wish is ludicrous and out of context.  Think about when this book was written. ~80CE. When did the Churches first stop observing the Sabbath on Saturday? After 364CE. Sabbath observance was not being addressed, nor was the Torah being challenged here. The only thing being challenged here are the ordinances and commandments of men. Only ignorance or blatant rebellious contention for the Torah and G-d’s authority can be blamed for using this verse out of context this way.

      • 2.  Jesus rose from the dead on Sunday, the first

day of the week.

It is easy to prove that Yeshua rose from the dead before sunrise the first day of the week. John’s account of the resurrection is as follows.

    • (John 20:1 KJV)

The first day of the week cometh Mary Magdalene early, when it was yet dark, unto the sepulchre, and seeth the stone taken away from the sepulchre.

Notice the word day is italicized. This means that the translators added the word to the text in attempt to clarify text which may otherwise seem vague. In this case it causes the mistaken understanding that it was daytime. The text however states “… it was yet dark…“. Remember that the Jewish day begins at sundown. Therefore The first … of the week…” comes at sundown, not at sunrise.

An interesting parallel can be found in Matthew’s reference to the same time period.

    • Matthew 28:1  “

In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre.

Notice again the word day is italicized. When did the two Marys come to the sepulcher? In the end of the Sabbath. This was closer to Saturday evening than Sunday morning.

    3.  Today, no one knows which day is the true Sabbath.

The statement is pure bologna. We know that the weekly calendar has not changed in the number of days per week nor in shifting of the days of the week in any way since the time of Yeshua, and He kept the correct one. The days were renamed from One, Two, Three, … Shabbat, to Sunday, Monday … Saturday, by the Roman Emperors. Sunday replaced day One, etc., and it has been that way ever since. Additionally, Jews everywhere have been keeping the Seventh day Sabbath since they left Egypt.

    4.  Early believers met together to break bread on the first day of the week.

This statement is true, however what does it mean to “break bread”? Most misunderstand this to mean observing the “L-rd’s Supper” but they do not realize that the “L-rd’s Supper” was a Passover Seder and the early church understood this. They always broke bread when they ate. Bread did not come sliced as it does today. Only recently do the majority of people buy bread from the grocery. In Biblical days bread was baked at home and freely shared among friends and relatives.

    5.  “Sunday represents the ‘eighth day’ for Christians.”

While this statement could be used to justify worshipping on a new day, doing so is out of context and has no basis in Scripture. We still have to do something with the commandment “Remember the Sabbath Day to keep it holy.” Nowhere in Scripture is a command given to change the law of the Sabbath.

    6.  We are no longer under the law, for “Christ was the end of the law”.

This verse, found in Romans 10:4, is a very bad translation for today’s English. It worked very well in King James’ day but is totally misunderstood in today’s language. The Greek word which was translated “end” is telos meaning “the point at which we are aiming”. Telos is part of the root from which we derive “telescope” because it allows us to see more clearly the distant point. The Hebrew word “Torah” has the same meaning so we could accurately translate this misunderstood verse, “Messiah was the Torah of the law” meaning that He lived a life without sin and thereby proved that mankind can keep the Torah.

    7.  Yeshua “fulfilled the law”.

He did not destroy the Law, He kept it. He was precisely what the law spoke about. The greatest fulfillment was when he made it possible for you and I to keep it more perfectly (John 1:12).

Conclusion:

The first century congregations scattered across Europe and the Middle East, including all of the gentile congregations kept the Sabbath day holy, observed the holy-days, kept the dietary laws and even recognized the festivals of the new moons of Judaism. They did not convert to Judaism and were therefore not required to obey the Oral Traditions of the rabbis which put greater strictness of regulations on the Jewish believers. The Torah, however, was observed (Isaiah 56) and resisted the powerful forces of change until at least the middle of the sixth century. It is incumbent on us to resume the place of being Torah observant in our gentile congregations that the G-d of creation may be exalted. I call out to the gentile churches “And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. {5} For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities. (Rev 18:4-5 KJV)

MOST DON’T KNOW THAT FIRST CENTURY GENTILES ALWAYS KEPT IT. ALWAYS GOOD TO LEARN.

JUST FOR YOUR LEARNING EXPERIENCE AND I PRAY SOME RETURN TO THE ANCIENT PATHS

Teaching: The Remnant Bride (Joseph Herrin)

Teaching: The Remnant Bride (Joseph Herrin)

The Remnant Bride

A deception has been foisted upon the church. The deception says that all

Christians are equal before the Father. They will all share the same resurrection,

the same reward, the same destiny. This is entirely untrue.

Many have confused the remission of sins, which is given freely and

in the same measure to all who believe, with sanctification and reward.

Being born of the Spirit is a free gift. It is a gift given equally to all who trust in Christ

Yahshua for the forgiveness of their sins. It matters not how long you have trusted in Him,

nor how faithfully you have walked before Him. This salvation is a free gift to those who

believe. This is the subject of the following parable of Christ.

Matthew 20:1-16

“For the kingdom of heaven is like a landowner who went out early in the morning

to hire laborers for his vineyard. And when he had agreed with the laborers for a

denarius for the day, he sent them into his vineyard. And he went out about the third

hour and saw others standing idle in the market place; and to those he said, ‘You too

go into the vineyard, and whatever is right I will give you.’ And so they went. Again

he went out about the sixth and the ninth hour, and did the same thing. And about

the eleventh hour he went out, and found others standing; and he said to them, ‘Why

have you been standing here idle all day long?’ They said to him, ‘Because no one

hired us.’ He said to them, ‘You too go into the vineyard.’ And when evening had

come, the owner of the vineyard said to his foreman, ‘Call the laborers and pay them

their wages, beginning with the last group to the first.’ And when those hired about

the eleventh hour came, each one received a denarius. And when those hired first

came, they thought that they would receive more; and they also received each one

a denarius. And when they received it, they grumbled at the landowner, saying,

‘These last men have worked only one hour, and you have made them equal to us

who have borne the burden and the scorching heat of the day.’ But he answered and

said to one of them, ‘Friend, I am doing you no wrong; did you not agree with me for

a denarius? Take what is yours and go your way, but I wish to give to this last man

the same as to you. Is it not lawful for me to do what I wish with what is my own? Or

is your eye envious because I am generous?’ Thus the last shall be first, and the first

last.”

The pay that all receive equally is the salvation of which we speak. Whether one lives

his whole life in obedience to Christ, or whether one comes to trust Him while on his death

bed, the pay is the same. Salvation belongs to the Lord and He can dispense it as He wishes.

There is no basis for complaint concerning this.

Ephesians 2:8-9

For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the

gift of God; not as a result of works, that no one should boast.

In the area of reward, however, there is a great variation between what different

believers will receive.

Revelation 22:12

“Behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to render to every man

according to what he has done.”

Not all saints walk with the same degree of faithfulness and worthiness before the

Father. Their reward will therefore be different. The apostle Paul tells us that each man’s

work will be tested with fire. The quality, or worthiness, of each man’s work will be

revealed.

I Corinthians 3:10-15

According to the grace of God which was given to me, as a wise master builder I laid

a foundation, and another is building upon it. But let each man be careful how he

builds upon it. For no man can lay a foundation other than the one which is laid,

which is Yahshua the Messiah. Now if any man builds upon the foundation with

gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw, each man’s work will become evident;

for the day will show it, because it is to be revealed with fire; and the fire itself will

test the quality of each man’s work. If any man’s work which he has built upon it

remains, he shall receive a reward. If any man’s work is burned up, he shall suffer

loss; but he himself shall be saved, yet so as through fire.

It seems that Christians today have given little thought to the issue of reward. There

are many who live carelessly, pursuing the things of the carnal nature. Many believe that

salvation is enough, that having obtained it, there is nothing else that God requires of them.

They therefore walk in oblivion, ignorant of God’s voice and His desire for them.

Consider again the parable of the stewards from Luke 12:42-48. The Lord indicates

that there are some who will be found faithful and waiting. These are called blessed.

Additionally, there are those who will say in their heart that the master delays and they will

begin to carouse and act wickedly, mistreating others. These will be cut to pieces and

assigned a portion with the unbelievers.

There is another group, however. This group is those who were ignorant of their

master’s will. They did things worthy of a flogging, but they received fewer stripes because

they were unaware of their master’s will.

Without a doubt, it is desirable to be among those who are faithful. It is better to

receive praise and reward than a reprimand and stripes. Many will suffer loss, whether their

disobedience springs from wicked carnality or ignorance of God’s will. As we will see, this

loss extends even to whether the saints of God will be counted worthy to be among those

who are called the Bride of Christ.

Gospel Truth: True And False Repentance By Rev. Charles G. Finney

Gospel Truth: True And False Repentance By Rev. Charles G. Finney

I shared a small part of what Charles G. Finney had said on the post I did but there is much more to this and please study and learn because it is a serious matter for each one of us. Don’t say it does not matter because it does. WE all must come back to the truth and not follow doctrines of men; the lies of Satan in the churches of today. Will you throw your inheritance away like Esau did or will you not let Satan take what is yours? Your choice.

TRUE AND FALSE REPENTANCE
by the Rev. CHARLES G. FINNEY
 

TEXT.–For godly sorrow worketh repentance into[unto] salvation, not to be repented of; but the sorrow of the world worketh death.–2 CORINTHIANS vii. 10.

IN this chapter the apostle refers to another epistle, which he had formerly written to the church at Corinth, on a certain subject, in which they were greatly to blame. He speaks here of the effect that it had, in bringing them to true repentance. They sorrowed after a godly sort. This was the evidence that their repentance was genuine.

“For behold this self-same thing, that ye sorrowed after a godly sort, what carefulness it wrought in you, yea, what clearing of yourselves, yea, what indignation, yea, what fear, yea, what vehement desire, yea, what zeal, yea, what revenge! In all things ye have approved yourselves to be clear in this matter.”

In the verse which I have taken for my text, he speaks of two kinds of sorrow for sin, one working repentance unto salvation, the other working death. He alludes to what is generally understood by two kinds of repentance. And this is the subject of discourse to-night.

TRUE AND FALSE REPENTANCE.
In discoursing on the subject, I design to show

I. What true repentance is:

II. How it may be known:

III. What is false and spurious repentance:

IV. How it may be known:

It is high time professors of religion were taught to discriminate much more than they do in regard to the nature and character of various exercises on the subject of religion. Were it so, the church would not be so overrun with false and unprofitable professors. I have of late been frequently led to examine, over and over again, the reason why there is so much spurious religion, and I have sought to know what is the foundation of the difficulty. That multitudes suppose themselves to be religious, who are not so, unless the Bible is false–is notorious. Why is it that so many are deceived? Why do so many, who are yet impenitent sinners, get the idea that they have repented? The cause is doubtless a want of discriminating instruction respecting the foundation of religion, and especially a want of discrimination respecting true and false repentance.

PLEASE CLICK BELOW AND CONTINUE THIS STUDY: Truth sets us free does it not?

True and False Repentance by Charles G. Finney

gospeltruth.net/1836LTPC/ltpc09_tandf_repentance.htm

EXCERPT FROM THIS TEACHING ALSO:

Ordinarily, the reformation produced by false sorrow is temporary even in those things which are reformed.

The individual is continually relapsing into his old sins. The reason is, the disposition to sin is not gone, it is only checked and restrained by fear, and as soon as he has a hope and is in the church, and gets bolstered up so that his fears are allayed, you see him gradually wearing back, and presently returning to his old sins. This was the difficulty with the house of Israel, that made them so constantly return to their idolatry and other sins. They had only worldly sorrow. You see it now every where in the church. Individuals are reformed for a time, and taken into the church, and then relapse into their old sins. They love to call it getting cold in religion, and backsliding, and the like, but the truth is, they always loved sin, and when the occasion offered, they returned to it, as the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire, because she was always a sow.
