It's Not Too Late, Addict, for Repentance

Is there ever a point where we are too far from repentance?  I’ve been an addict for years and while I was under the influence the devil manifested before me and told me he won and God turned me over to him.  At that point there was a deep sinking feeling in my heart and since then I’ve been doing better working towards cutting all sins from myself.  I pray daily and read the bible daily now trying to learn the word of God.  The people in my life tend to be Devils and I can tell now.  Is that because I am now one with his side?  When the devil manifested before me I rebuked what he said and have been working as hard as I can to remove all sin from me.  If you could help me out it would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks.

Hi Jordan,

Have you red our paper on Repentance? You’ve been trying to effect your own repentance, which is impossible. That’s why you’re confused about whose side you’re on – God’s or the Devil’s. When you experience the gift of repentance from God, you’ll know assuredly that He is on your side, and by walking in faith, that you’re on His side. 

But at least you’ve taken the step of acknowledging the Law is good, and also realize you can’t believe what the Devil tells you, because he’s a liar. So keep going, and when you fail, look to the Lord Jesus Christ Whom we preach, asking Him to take over your life. The only way you can get right with Him is by His power and grace.

“For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast” (Ephesians 2:8-9 KJV).

The ones who are the furthest from repentance aren’t the addicts who know they have a problem, it’s the self-righteous who think they’re doing fine by God with their religious works. 

Luke 18:9-14 MKJV
(9)  And He spoke this parable to certain ones who trusted in themselves, that they were righteous, and despised others:
(10)  Two men went up into the temple to pray; the one a Pharisee, and the other a tax-collector.
(11)  The Pharisee stood and prayed within himself in this way: God, I thank You that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even like this tax-collector.
(12)  I fast twice on the Sabbath, I give tithes of all that I possess.
(13)  And standing afar off, the tax-collector would not even lift up his eyes to Heaven, but struck on his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner!
(14)  I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other. For everyone who exalts himself shall be abased, and he who humbles himself shall be exalted.

Hello and thank you for your response I enjoyed reading both the page on repentance and the testimony.  However I had a question come up.  It seems repentance is for those that never heard the voice of God.  The more I look back in time of my life I realize that I’ve always heard the word of God growing up.  I didn’t know that it was him I just thought it was my mind.  When I was really young I was brought up in Christianity. However my parents moved when I was 5ish and never got back into the church until recently. 

I am 22 years old and I’ve been truly trying to get back to God for maybe 4ish months now.  I tried once before but it was never a full commitment.  Anyways, I read in Matthew 13:19-23 it talks about the seed that was sown in thorns.  I believe that was me.  I’m pretty sure that what i experianced was satan stealing the seed that was sown inside of me.  That being said Is it still possible to repent or no?  

God called me to preach and he told me to resist the urge and that I would have all my addictions lifted from me and I quite 5 min before the miracle happened for me.  It was at that time a real deep fear seeded into my heart and I realized I failed Gods test for me.  That is when the person I was with turned to me and told me that he was the devil and was the manifestation of all my insecurities and pride.  At that point I told him that I refused to believe him and then left and confessed to my parents what happened but that fear was with me for 5 days after the incident and then has progressively gotten less and less but I still feel like it is there.  

I try to have hope that God will come back but I feel it’s a false hope from Satan to make me suffer.  I’m sorry to bother you but I really worry for my soul.  I realize how real it all was now and want nothing but to grow closer to God because I’m going to die without him I know it.  If you could get back to me it would be greatly appreciated.

Jordan, you’re confusing religion, the Bible, and your imagination with the voice of God. You haven’t heard from the Lord Jesus Christ before or known Him. Read How One Is Saved.

And what makes you think that repentance is only for those who never knew of God? Didn’t Jesus come to God’s people, Israel, calling them to repentance? 

“And after John was delivered up, Jesus came into Galilee, proclaiming the Gospel of the Kingdom of God, and saying, The time is fulfilled, and the Kingdom of God draws near. Repent, and believe the Gospel” (Mark 1:14-15 MKJV).

Forget about trying to figure things out and what you think you heard before. Put that all away and concentrate on hearing the Gospel we’re preaching and the truth we’re telling you, which is the True Gospel, untainted, confirmed in Scripture and proven with fruits. Believe and obey. Your mind and being need to be cleansed of the filthy mixture of Babylon. Faith and obedience will get you there. The Lord has brought you here for your salvation. Keep reading on our site.

True Doctrine Is Strange to Those in Error
From: Claudio To: The Path of Truth Sent: Thursday, June 09, 2016 8:48 PM Subject: Judging a brother... Dear brothers Paul and Victor, Judging a brother like you do, as in the case of Austin Sparks, calling the brother of false prophet and even antichrist is something very serious. I say that because when you read about his life and the testimony he gave to the Lord during his lifetime, it is something that fully confirms his ministry. His ministry was based on the Word of God and are often deep studies focusing in Christ and in Christ alone. You should have fear of the Lord, because it may be that the accusations that you usually speak and write about him, God may bring on you judgment in the Court of Christ. Beware of concerning this type of  judgments, especially because the adjectives and nouns that you use about this servant of God are too heavy.

Did Paul Ask for Handouts, Donations?
From: Tyler To: The Path of Truth Sent: Monday, January 04, 2016 2:24 PM Subject: Asking For Money Hello, Today, I stumbled upon your website, on the page in which you claim the illegitimacy of Todd White.  I'm not here to argue that, but rather inquire why him asking for money is wrong.  The scripture that I am hung up on comes from 1 Corinthians. Paul says he has the freedom to ask for pay, but he decided not to. He claims a worker has the right to be paid for his efforts. However, he exchanges his physical payment for spiritual payment from God. Can you shed light on this scripture for me?

Who plants a vineyard and does not eat of its fruit? Or who feeds a flock and does not partake of the milk of the flock? (8)  Do I say these things according to man? Or does not the Law say the same also? (9)  For it is written in the Law of Moses, "You shall not muzzle an ox threshing grain." Does God take care for oxen?
