Very early on in my deliverance journey I learnt the importance of repentance and in essence turning away from sin.
Repentance is an extremely crucial part of deliverance. Repentance means that we stop walking in the path of sin and we return to walking on God’s path. Repentance is a conscious and a deliberate breaking of covenants and agreements we have made with satan and coming back onto the path of holiness which is God’s way. We see a lot in the word of God, where Israel was called to be obedient and return to the Lord. We see God also calling us to make our paths straight and avoid paths of unrighteousness.
3 The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the LORD, make straight in the desert a highway for our God. 4 Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low: and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough places plain:Isaiah 40:3-4 (KJV)
Proverbs 4:14 to 19 states ~ 14 Enter not into the path of the wicked, and go not in the way of evil men. 15 Avoid it, pass not by it, turn from it, and pass away. 16 For they sleep not, except they have done mischief; and their sleep is taken away, unless they cause some to fall. 17 For they eat the bread of wickedness, and drink the wine of violence.18 But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day. 19 The way of the wicked is as darkness: they know not at what they stumble.
Its also important to distinguish between repentance and confession. Confession is just the acknowledgement of doing something wrong for e.g. I stole that pencil, I hit the man, and it was wrong. Repentance is me actually feeling remorse for what I have done , having a desire to change it and be different and not to do it again.
In a recent instagram post, I shared how the Lord was leading me to research the meanings of various sins in the bible and ensure that I really understood what it meant , so I could repent of it. I was lead to read Galatians, 1 and 2 Corinthians and Proverbs 6 specifically, but there are many other books that Paul wrote and so many others that have various sins we need to repent of.
One of the most important concepts of a believer’s life is being repentant and repenting of our sins on a daily basis. In my deliverance journey, I also came across generational bloodline cleansing, and why it’s important especially as an intercessor & especially for a believer that will be working in the deliverance ministry. Generational bloodline cleansing and repentance is done so when we warfare, we ensure that the enemy has no legal ground whatsoever, even if he looks into our generational bloodlines, he has nothing to point at us and accuse us of.
Repentance is extremely important. False gospels such as once saved always saved, give a false pretence that it’s ok to continue sinning as long as we acknowledge Lord Jesus Christ as our Lord and Saviour. This is totally false and can be further studied. (See Ezekiel 18:19-32). Believers who have had hell experiences , have expressed that people who were shown to be in hell, did not repent of their sinful ways. (See Hell testimonies of Bette Stevens and Angelica Zambrano).
None of us are perfect, we are all sinners, we can always go to Lord Jesus Christ and repent. In 1 John 1:9 it says, ” If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”
The Torah, God’s Law tells us about right and wrong, and reveals sin. We can also repent through the bible, by looking at chapters such as Exodus, Leviticus and Deuteronomy.
In the book of Galatians , Paul has also summarised what the works of the flesh are.
The other sins that Yahweh hates is also listed in Proverbs 6:16 -19.
16 These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him:
17 A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,
18 An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief,
19 A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.
In the post below, I go into the definitions of what these sins are , so that we know of them and can repent for them.
I will also include a covering prayer and prayer for protection here:
Dear Heavenly Father Yahweh, I thank Lord for Your mercy and grace and the opportunity to come before Your throne room Lord. I thank You for the precious gift of the blood of Lord Jesus Christ and His finished work on the cross. I come boldly before the throne room, because You said come. I come to lay down my life on Your altar as a living sacrifice according to Romans 12:1, I lay my body, soul, spirit, mind ,will, emotions, my heart, subconscious, conscious, my patterns on Your altar. Purge me of that which is not pleasing to you, remove the wood , hay and stubble and only leave that which is of gold, silver and precious stone.
Father, I am willing today to repent of all my sins and whatever you show me. Father please cover me, my family and loved ones that can be saved with the precious blood of Lord Jesus Christ. Create a hedge of protection around us , cover us with the fire of God. I also put on the full armour or God. (Read Ephesians 6:12-18 and pray the armour on) I gird my loins and my waist with the belt of Truth, I will stick to the truth that is in Your word. I repent for lying , I will tell the truth. I put on the breatplate of righteousness. I aim to be holy, for You are Holy and only those that are holy will see the face of God. I cannot be holy by own works, but only by Lord Jesus Christ working in me. I shod my feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace , I will have the peace of Jesus Christ in all situations and I am willing to share Your gospel. I take up the shield of faith, I pray for an increase of faith. I put on the helmet of Salvation, I believe Lord Jesus Christ is my Lord and Saviour. And I take up the sword of the spirit which is word of God making prayer and supplication for all saints.
I ask Lord, that you cover every chink in my armour, and anything that I have not yet repented of whilst going into battle alongside Lord Jesus Christ, You Lord make up the lack in me.
Heavenly Father, please cover my household and property, my health , well-being , my divine relationships, all saints of God and all those that can be saved. Please cover my job, my business, my business connections , my finances , my bank accounts, my investments, my relationships within these jobs under the blood of Jesus Christ. I cover under the blood my future, my spouse, my children every human soul that can be saved. I cover my ministry, I cover my neighbourhood, I cover all things I am meant to do for you Father, I cover it all under the blood of Lord Jesus Christ. I pray that the enemy will not be able to bring backlash through any of these channels and as I am repenting and going along with Lord Jesus Christ who is fighting the battle. Every principality and power will bow down and confess that Lord Jesus Christ is Lord of Lords and King of Kings and His name is above every other name and they will be defeated as I repent as the devil and his minions will have no legal ground. I thank You for Your protection and covering Lord, in Jesus Christ’s name I pray. Amen
This is a great covering prayer before you repent, do a deliverance prayer , such as binding principalities and powers and going to the courts of heaven to get your petition against evil wicked doers. I will be referencing this cover prayer in further deliverance prayer posts.
Thank you for reading. Blessings!
