What is the way of Escape?
Part of the wonderful inheritance we have is that God did not allow these things to overwhelm us; he has made a way of escape. The divine prescriptions are: –
The Word of God. Put the word of God in your heart. Part of the missing link in raising Christians today is that people are no longer taught how to memorize the word of God. How can you navigate the world that is so perverse and crooked, rationalizing evil and saying that all ways lead to heaven without the Word? Every person is a brander and is trying in one way or the other to re-brand you. The unfortunate thing is that instead of the Church rebranding people with Christ; they are busy rebranding them to follow their denominations. Some of these Churches teach that masturbation is not a sin but a habit forgetting that there is something called sinful habit. Instead of filling the youths with the word of God and making them to memorize the Bible, they are busy doing other things. This is one of the worst times to raise godly children. What are you feeding yourself with? What you feed on is what you become. All manner of demons have been let loose looking for gardens that are well swept to encroach. It is very easy to collect an evil seal, what is difficult is the removal. When was the last time you memorized a scripture? When was the last time you gave your children the assignment to memorize a Psalm? What did Jesus use to confront the snake in the wilderness? The Word of course –‘it is written’. John 1:1 says, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” The secret for dealing with perversion is the Word. If you know the truth, it will make you free, the truth is the Word. “Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.” John 17:17.
The Blood of Jesus. Rev. 12:11, “And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.” The blood of Jesus is the life of Christ. Put the blood of Jesus in the garden of your heart. Remember that the blood does not avail until it is applied.
The Name of Jesus. Acts 3:16, “And his name through faith in his name hath made this man strong, whom ye see and know: yea, the faith which is by him hath given him this perfect soundness in the presence of you all.” Through faith in the name of Jesus, you will experience wonders. Exercise the authority that is in that name. Rebuke any nonsense the enemy throws at you, don’t entertain or rationalize it as small or medium sin. Every sin is sin enough to take you to hell. This is because every sin brands you and every brand will take you to the house of the owner.
PRAY:- Eternal Most Holy God I worship you. Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting in Jesus’ Name. Amen
