“If You Have Really Forgiven, You Would Go Back…”

17 Feb

I liked this video because it reminded me of the religious games that the institutionalized church makes us play, all in a failed effort to prove to ‘them’ how spiritual we are.

In this video, Pam discusses her return to the I.C.  She explains that she went  back ‘to test herself,’ to see if she was embittered on unforgiving towards the very church people who had done her wrong.

It made me think of an instance when I was in the I.C. where I, too, returned to the I.C.  But it wasn’t GOD who led me to return.  A religious spirit had told me that if I had REALLY forgiven this ‘church,’ then I would have to ‘prove it’ by returning, by repenting to that pastor and that church and act like nothing had ever occurred.

How many times have we who were formerly entangled with the I.C. were told that LIE (YES, I call it a LIE)?  Either some two-legged religious devil, or a ‘voice’ who we perceived was GOD told us that if we REALLY were walking in TOTAL LOVE AND FORGIVENESS, then we would place ourselves RIGHT BACK into the abusive situation that caused what others call ‘offense’ (But what I call an atrocity before God) in the first place.

And because we were ALL under the influence of a religious demon, we fell for it.  We went back.

In Pam’s case, she was astutely aware of what was going on around her.  She was able to discern who was at work.  She needed to go back…as she stated, to test herself.

In my case, I SHOULDN’T have gone back.  I won’t go into details, but I will say it was a disaster and a spiritual tornado upon my return..

Listen…

Once God leads you out of a church, out of an abusive relationship, once God releases you from a place or thing, DON’T GO BACK!!!!

THAT IS A TRAP RELIGIOUS DEMONS LOVE TO PLACE US IN…BECAUSE THE WHOLE POINT OF IT IS TO KILL, TO STEAL AND TO DESTROY…YOU!!!

YOU HAVE NOTHING TO PROVE TO ANYONE!!!  NOT EVEN YOURSELF!!!!

Forgiveness is not something you feel; it’s a decision.  You decide to forgive someone of a wrongdoing.  Then walk it OUT in faith that AS YOU GO, God will help you to continue to WALK IN FORGIVENESS.

When you walk, you are not stationery.  You don’t walk in place, not if you’re trying to get somewhere.  You place one foot in front of the order.  YOUR STEPS ARE ORDERED BY GOD!!!!

TRUST GOD WHO CALLED YOU OUT…AND STAY OUT!!!!  KNOW THAT THAT VOICE YOU’RE HEARING TO STAY OR RETURN TO SOME FOOLISHNESS IS A RELIGIOUS DEVIL!

    Excellet point, Wenona. It was a religious demon who :led me back.”I was being accused by dissenters that “I had a root of bitterness.” As the Lord was led into the wilderness by the Holy Ghost to be tempted of the devil, so was I. The enemy through the mouth of the Bishop made a huge offer. He could make me a bestselling author. He could make me both famous, wealthy and prestigious in the Denomination. He could override all the previous rejection I had experienced. The anointing of the devil tried to overpower me with a sermon no one else was listening to but I snapped of it. Unless the Holy Ghost leads YOU back to “pass a test,” then I agree with Wenona. DON’T GO BACK!”
