A Backslider Restored

A Backslider Restored

When you woke up this morning, were you excited about Jesus? Or did you feel, “Same old, same old. It’s another day.” Thus is the difference between a saint and a backslider. Pastor Ray describes several red flags that you’re a backslider and how to recover.

Three of these signs are: loss of interest in the Bible, coldness in prayer, and no longer sharing the gospel with others. Perhaps love for Jesus once inflamed your heart. But now, your relationship with Jesus is dead and cold. You know that Jesus said, “If you love me, keep my commandments.” But you now feel that God’s commandments are burdensome.

Are you distant from Jesus, yet have a hunger for that real, passionate, love for God? If so, the only way back to God is to get on your face and honestly confess who you are. Then, you make a decision to start again in obedience to Jesus. This is individual revival. Nobody else can do it for you; it’s something you must do.

Are you a sinner who will soon be in the hands of an angry God? Or are you on fire for Jesus?

    Hi
    I was saved a very long time ago.
    But I didn’t realize that Shortly after I rejected Him.

    I didn’t realize it until 9 yrs ago.
    I have tried everything for Him to take me back, but nothing.

    I have gone through a few crazy traumas
    Now when i listen or read the Bible it condemns me
    Its as if I have an antichrist spirit
    Its scary and crazy

    I have reached out for help numerous times to no avail.

    I have very little hope.
    No matter how much i pray and repent, I am still in this hell on earth.

    I hate to say this but my salvation has become like a disease.
    I dont know Jesus and i have no peace.
    I wish i can end it.

    Thank you
    Grace

      Good morning Grace,

      We are going to be praying for you. Know that the devil is the accuser of the brethren and he always condemns us. Jesus never condemns us he confront us and calls us to repent. We’re praying that Jesus will meet you as you seek Him with all of your heart. Jesus said that if we would seek Him with our whole heart we would find Him. Don’t give up and find some believers who will stand and walk beside you. I’m not sure if you regularly listen to the broadcast or not but we normally have prayer on Friday (from 1-2 p.m.) and you’re welcome to call in for prayer tomorrow. God bless you.
