Hostage To The Past?

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

Have you heard the following statements? God is tired of you. God is not going to keep forgiving you over and over. Because of your weakness, the Holy Spirit is going to leave you because he doesn’t dwell in an unclean temple. God is going to do it with you or without you. According to man’s religion, man’s private interpretation, and man’s heart, this is true. However, according to God’s pure religion (which is pure worship to God), the scripture, and God’s heart, this is false. (James 1:27)

First of all, the Word declares that Jehovah’s strength is everlasting, his love is unending, and his mercy endures forever. (Jeremiah 31:3; Isaiah 26:4; Psalms 118) Therefore, God is not tired, man is tired, because he or she is living in their own strength and not the power of the Holy Spirit–Agape love.

Secondly, the carnal man has a problem with forgiveness, and certain standards that man sets, but rules and legalism never delivered or changed anybody. The grace of God is the power that transforms our weaknesses to strengths and it is the LOVE OF GOD that draws us to Christ, to repentance, and to true deliverance. The Holy Spirit doesn’t leave us because of our weaknesses, he helps us with our weaknesses. infirmities (feebleness of mind or body); by implication, malady; morally, frailty:–disease, infirmity, sickness, weakness), (Romans 8:26).

The Word also declares, in Matthew 28:20, Jesus will never leave you nor forsake you. Yahweh is going to do it with you or WITH YOU. Don’t walk in condemnation, walk in your righteousness. You are not righteous because of your deeds, but you are righteous because of Christ’s deeds. You’re worthy, because Jesus made you worthy. If we confess our sin, he is faithful, and just, to forgive us and cleanse us from all unrighteousness ( 1 John 1:9). Receive Christ’s forgiveness for you, forgive yourself, and DON’T ALLOW ANY DEMON, ANY RELIGION, OR ANYONE (including yourself), TO HOLD YOU HOSTAGE TO THE PAST, even if it was just 2 seconds ago, YOU, ARE, RE, -DEEMED!

  2. Wow! This message is such a blessing. It’s amazing how God knows how to and when to minister to our hearts. This was a topic I had planned on writing on soon. I’ve been made to feel condemned and doomed because of my past on so many different occasions. Grateful for your ministry and your post.
