WHY ARE YOU BACKSLIDDEN?

1. Doctrinal Errors

  • Believing that the Bible commands us to leave sin bit by bit - we are rather required to break from it instantly and completely
  • Waiting for God for more conviction. You don't need to have monstrous fears of hell
  • Waiting for identical emotions someone else experienced. You can't predict the way God leads you
  • Trying to make yourself better (humiliation, suffering, prayer)
  • Thinking your sins are too enormous for God to forgive. Thinking God has abandoned you and it is too late to be saved. Thinking you have committed the unpardonable sin
  • Looking to your own darkness instead of looking to Christ.

    2. Search for an idol. Find out what you love more than God - Wealth, a friend, fashionable dress, the popular crowd or a favourite amusement. Your heart is so fixed, you won't yield to God

    3. Search for someone you have injured in a way that calls for redress. Unwilling to confess and make it right. Hurt a person's property or character or have abused them. There is no hope for you until you are willing to confess it and do the right thing

    4. Look for a sin you won't forsake. It doesn't matter how small it is, you can never enter God's kingdom until you give it up

    5. See if there is restitution left undone. Swindled or took advantage of someone in business. You can never have forgiveness until you pay back the money

    6. Look where you have been stubborn:

  • Not allowing yourself to be "reconverted"
  • Not willing to attend a particular meeting
  • Not willing to pray with a certain individual
  • Not writing your sins down
  • Saying that you can be converted just as well without doing it that way, because Christianity does not consist in going to a certain meeting, or having a designated attitude.

    As long as you remain stubborn and determine to sway God to your terms, you will never be converted.

    7. Look out for a member of the Church you dislike because he spoke the truth to you bluntly. Uncover it and accept the truth plainly. You will never be converted until you lay it down.

    8. Look out for resentment. This keeps you from receiving God's mercy

    7. A WEAK PRAYER LIFE:
    8. HINDERING REVIVAL: "You have delayed God's plan to bring revival"
    9. QUENCHING THE SPIRIT:
    10. COMMIT YOURSELF TO CHRIST NOW:

    GIVING WRONG COUNSEL TO CONVICTED SINNERS:

    1. "You're not so bad. What have you ever done to need to feel so bad?" As if he has never done anything evil and has no reason to feel distressed

    2. "Conversion is a progressive work" - NO, beginning is never progressive

    3. "Don't think about it now" Just because God gave you time, it doesn't mean that He will give him time.

    4. "Don't be discouraged. I was the same way a long time before I found rest."

    5. "Christianity is cheerful! It isn't gloomy. Don't be distressed, be comforted, forget your fears" - True, it isn't just feeling bad. But the sinner has reason for distress, because he doesn't have Christian faith.

    6. "You can never fully understand repentance and regeneration". The Bible gives a clear view of the nature and duty of repentance.

    7. "You are not to blame for your sin". This is comfort full of death

    8. "What can you do to save yourself? You're a poor, feeble creature. You can't do anything" The sinner thinks, God certainly can't send me to hell for not doing something I can't do. The relief is counterfeit and it only stores up wrath for judgement day

    9. "Wait on God's time" This is untrue because he has a part to do that no one else - including God - can do for him

    10. "Perform outward religious practices" The sinner is willing to do anything else, except repent now. His burden rolls away

    11. "Pray for a new heart" --unless they have faith and pray in faith

    12. "Persevere" - this encourages sinners to hold out longer in rebellion

    13. Statements based on the belief that the sinner faces heaven, when in fact he faces hell: "Press forward" or "You're on the right path - just press on and you'll get to heaven"

    14. "Try to repent and give your heart to God" Sure, I've tried before and I'll try again, the sinner says. "You haven't repented enough". The truth is that the sinner hasn't repented at all.

    15. "If you are elected, God will bring you into His fold" - you cause the sinner to rest in apathy.

    16. "Pray for repentance", "Pray for conviction", "Pray for the Holy Spirit to show you your sins", "Try to get a better sense of your guilt"

    17. "I have faith you will be converted" Your purpose should rather be to annihilate every last vestige of hope while he remains in sin.

    18. "I will pray for you", "You are doing well, I feel encouraged about you", "Do what you can, and God will take care of the rest"

    19. Applying Scripture promises only meant for saints "Blessed are those who mourn", "Seek and you shall find", "Let us not lose heart in doing good"

    20. "God has begun a good work in you and He will complete it."

    21. Describing your own conversion causes him to try and copy your experience instead of following the Gospel or the Spirit's leading in his own soul.

    9. QUENCHING THE SPIRIT:
    10. COMMIT YOURSELF TO CHRIST NOW:

    1. "Give up the world to God, and he will give it right back to you" NO, God never gives the world back to the Christian in the same way that He requires the sinner to give it up

    2. God requires the sinner to give up the world, and in the same way he requires the Christian to give up the world forever

    3. You tempt the world to follow fashion and be prideful

    4. You do not surrender ownership of everything to God, to never again consider something your own

    5. He that forsaketh not all that he hath cannot be Christ's disciple

    6. Unless we entirely consecrate ourselves to Christ - time, talents and influence - we will never get to heaven

    7. If we don't use our energies for God, when we die we will find hell at the end of the path we pursued

    9. QUENCHING THE SPIRIT:
    10. COMMIT YOURSELF TO CHRIST NOW:

    1. The Holy Spirit is given to those that obey God

    2. Christians are guilty for not having the Spirit as sinners are for not repenting.

    3. Christians have more light, and so more guilt

    4. Every human on earth has the right to complain about Christians who don't have the Spirit

    5. You roadblock God's work. Pastors can't work around you

    6. You live a hypocritical life, your prayers are apathetic and insincere. You are insincere in your interactions with others

    7. You live with so much lightness and never settle down to take anything seriously

    8. You are so proud, so engrossed with clothing, the good life and the latest of everything

    9. Your mind is glued to the world. You love property and try so hard to get rich. Getting rich absorbs your whole life

    10. You don't fully confess and forsake your sins. You confess your sin in broad terms and are always ready to admit that you are a sinner. You confess a particular sin partially, with reserve, pride and guardedness

    11. You ignore a duty, such as family prayer, or you pursue a temporal goal and shirk your calling

    12. Your heart fights the conviction when you hear a sermon which touches your situation

    13. You don't wholly want the Spirit. It will take too many sacrifices. Some things you aren't willing to give up. You are unwilling to live a different life, give up the world, break with your ungodly friends and fully confess your sins. You secretly want Him to give in to your terms, but He will never do that

    14. You don't pray for the Spirit, or you pray and make no other effort or action to take hold of Him.

    A WEAK PRAYER LIFE

    1. Neglect of the Bible. You have not searched for evidence that God wants to bestow the blessing. You have not found a general or specific promise or prophecy to stand on when you pray. Go through the Bible, it is full of them.

    2. You have not nurtured the good desires you have. You do not cherish or protect the smallest longing that you have. You get distracted by inappropriate lightness, by faultfinding or by setting your heart on the world, and you do not follow up your benevolent feelings.

    3. You are not entirely consecrated to God, living a holy life, giving everything to God--all you have and all you are, time, talents, influence. You do not set apart times to renew your covenant and freshly dedicate yourself to God. Not admitting that you need to be "reconverted"

    4. You do not continue to pray until you have taken hold of the blessing.

    5. You do not walk every day with God, so he doesn't tell you what to pray for.

    6. Millions are in hell because the people who profess to be Christians have not offered the prayer of faith.

    7. The church is under a monstrous load of guilt because of the blood of souls lost through their lack of faith. At the judgement, the promises of God still unpacked from their Bibles will stare at them in the face and drag them down to hell.

    HINDERING REVIVAL

    1. You have not been convicted of your sins

    2. You have not begun in obedience to God and forsaken your sins

    3. You have little or no faith, cannot feel for sinners, are blind to them, and do not really see the burning realities of eternity

    4. You therefore cannot pray

    5. You also have not overcome the world and sin, and do not see the salvation of sinners happening around you

    6. You do not see the need to unite with other Christians to pray for revival

    7. You have not preached that men should repent

    8. You have not preached in a way that requires sinners to immediately convert from their sins

    9. You don't see the Providence of God - His ordering of events that signal an awakening is at hand. You don't believe that God cares

    10. You are not grieved, humbled or distressed by the sinfulness of sinners. You don't mind the sinfulness around you

    11. When you see sinners, you scold at them, or talk about them so coldly that it seems you have no desire to see reformation

    12. You don't have the spirit of prayer for revival. Or you pray as if you don't really want it

    13. You have not begun to confess your sins to other Christians specifically and in a concerned manner

    14. You are not willing to sacrifice to carry on the revival. You have not really counted the cost, because you are not willing to surrender feelings, business and time to help the work

    1. When the Spirit arrives and begins to reorder your life, you grieve Him away and refuse to walk with Him.

    2. You are not willing to be called eccentric. You have not made up your mind to be peculiar and act in ways that appear strange to those who don't comprehend the reasons behind your behaviour

    3. Ashamed that people think you are deranged when you deviate from what people think is common sense

    4. You do not feel great distress over the church and the world. You just seek the Spirit to feel content

    5. You do not grieve over the pastors and deadness of your spiritual leaders

    6. You are not willing to face opposition, both inside and outside the church. You are not willing to be attacked and persecuted

    7. You are not willing to face frequent and agonising conflicts with Satan

    8. You are not willing to face greater struggles within yourself to overcome temptation

    9. You do not have God's peace in exchange for your worldly passions, and your heart tortures you on the rack at present.

    10. You are not useful or fit to direct the tactics of revival

    11. You will not have a calmness and cheerfulness when under severe afflictions and trials

    12. You are not peaceful in death. You do not want to be in a position where you are always ready to die

    8. HINDERING REVIVAL: "You have delayed God's plan to bring revival"
    9. QUENCHING THE SPIRIT:
    10. COMMIT YOURSELF TO CHRIST NOW:

    FIRSTLY, REPENT OF ALL YOUR SIN. BE TOTALLY HONEST IF YOU ARE BACKSLIDDEN:

    1. Remember where you have fallen from

    2. Take to heart your conviction about your true position

    3. Repent at once

    4. Don't try to return merely by reforming your outside conduct. PENANCE is where you say "Hail Marys" or "Our Fathers" to cover up your sin - that is not going to help:

    5. Don't attempt to recommend yourself to God by unrepentant works or prayers

    6. Don't fool yourself that you are in a justified state. Come as you are to Christ, owning up, taking all the shame and blame on yourself. Come at once, like a guilty, condemned sinner. Don't make a single excuse, but just confess it all. Believe that despite your wanderings from God, He loves you still

    7. Come to Christ immediately. Believe that "If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness." 1 John 1:9

    CONFESS YOUR UNTHANKFULNESS TO GOD, AND OTHER THINGS NOW

     

    SECONDLY, COMMIT YOURSELF TO CHRIST:

    8. Once you have confessed your sins, believe that Jesus died so that you can be completely forgiven (You must first confess your sins before you can be forgiven)

    9. Once you have committed yourself by confessing online at www.JesusGod.org then go to the person you have sinned against and confess your wrong immediately and get your sin out of the way. If the person you have injured is too far away to go and see him, sit down and write a letter and confess the injury. If you have cheated anyone, send the money - the full amount, with interest.

    10. Once you have confessed to the person(s) you have sinned against, and paid back the money, have smaller and smaller self-consciousness and respect for self in every action in life - Confess pride or shame to pray or do anything in public. Pray to take your eyes off your own glory, look out only for God's glory, finding acceptance with Him through Christ. Be dead to flattery or condemnation

    11. Accept the whole will of God with a greater and greater love for it. Confess rebelling against His will revealed in His Word or in His ordering of circumstances

    12. Be calm in hardship from having a soul firmly anchored in Christ

    13. Have tranquillity in the face of sudden, crushing disasters and losses

    14. Have patience under provocation

    15. Decide to endure patiently and joyfully when God's will calls you to suffer under crosses, disappointments and severe pain

    16. Have an increasing deadness to all the world offers or threatens

    17. Resist the temptation to complain when disappointed. Decide to find rest and satisfaction in the allotments of God's ordering hand

    18. Resist temptation to worry

    19. Resist temptation to resent and retaliate when you are insulted or abused

    20. Resist temptation to focus on troubles or talk about them to others. This shows that you persistently think of self and reject your trials out of constant rebellion against God

    21. Decide to not focus on your trials more than on your blessings

    22. Quit your anxiety about life's circumstances, especially the things you cherish. Quit your persistent tendency of serving self. If childlike faith in you is not increasing then confess it

    23. Don't be troubled about events that thwart your plans, hopes, expectations and desires

    24. Have confidence in the wisdom, goodness and universality of God's providence. Have a state of mind that sees God in absolutely everything

    25. Resist constantly dwelling on others' faults and shortcomings

    26. Confess speech that remains sarcastic, uncharitable or severe instead of gentle, delicate and tender in speaking of others' real or supposed faults

    27. Stop thinking of or treating other people as enemies. Confess if it remains difficult to treat them kindly, and if you cannot pray for them heartily and work to do them good

    28. Confess an inability to forgive. Stop any desire to hold grudges

    29. Immediately abandon all sectarian discriminations, all prejudices of caste, colour, poverty, riches, blood relation. Immediately join with God to do good to enemies and friends alike

    30. Be willing to make great sacrifices with wholehearted joy for those who hate you, to promote their eternal salvation

    31. Stop seeing anything you do for God or the souls of men and women as a sacrifice

    32. Stop being more inclined to focus on your trials, losses and crosses

    33. Openly confess to those you have injured. Lay your heart open to God's searching and conviction. Is it a trial more than a joy to own up and confess? Don't carry on with your life while the fullest confession and restitution within your power remains undone

    34. Decide to live gratefully. Have a deep appreciation for the kindness of God and anyone else who shows you kindness

    35. Have an increasing earnestness to follow on to know more of the Lord as revealed in the scriptures

    36. Confess where you are not readily quickened by spiritual truth. Where your whole being does not harmoniously accept and rest in God's whole will and providence. This might be too painful for you

    37. Have a growing jealousy for God's honour, for the church's purity, and for the good of all people

    38. Remember that every step of spiritual progress must be made by faith, not by works. Take hold of Christ by faith. Be emptied of self-dependence. Stop holding onto expectations of forming holy habits through your own obedience. Decide to partake by faith of deeper and deeper baptisms of the Holy Spirit

    39. Quit the erroneous and dangerous idea that we grow up spiritually by forming holy habits. Don't begin zealous outward work without developing your inward life. Learn how to appropriate Christ and derive life from Him. All work is worthless unless it proceeds from the life of God in your own heart

    40. Exercise faith that works by love, that purifies the heart and overcomes the world.

    Please do not delay to confess your sins now. Putting it off will only make things worse.
