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.

Where Do Sinners Go When They Die?
From: Tyrone To: The Path of Truth Sent: Saturday, February 13, 2016 10:50 PM Subject: Hell Since you guys don't believe hell is eternal torment, then where do you think sinners will go, and what will happen to them? Like all the hall of false prophets you have on your website, where in the bible it states they receive much greater condemnation. What do you guys think happens them?  From: Paul Cohen and Victor Hafichuk To: Tyrone Sent: Thursday, February 18, 2016 7:11 AM Subject: Re: Hell Sinners are in hell, Tyrone. Hell is a spiritual place of darkness, where people are cut off from the Lord – the Light of All Men. But the state of hell isn’t an end unto itself, as taught by counterfeit Christianity and believed by you.  Read The State and Fate of Hell and The Great Promise of the Lake of Fire and the Second Death. The Lord said to the false teachers of His day: “Serpents! Offspring of vipers! How can you escape the condemnation of hell?” (Matthew 23:33 MKJV) The scribes and Pharisees were in hell - otherwise, they could have escaped its condemnation – do you see?   So what happens to those who receive greater condemnation? They’ll have to face the greater consequences of their culpability, just as a criminal with a more severe offense serves a greater sentence.   Here’s an example the Lord gave: “Woe to you, Chorazin! Woe to you, Bethsaida! For if the powerful acts which were done in you had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repen...
Church: Dull, Boring, and Full of Harlotry
From: Sheila To: The Path of Truth Sent: Sunday, June 19, 2016 5:52 PM Subject: Thank you!  Dear Bro. Hafichuk: I just wanted to say "thank you so much!!" for your article "The case for coming out". Over the past year, I have been spending much time in praying in the Spirit and reading the word. A few months ago, I told the Lord (bc I tell Him everything) that I really have no desire to go to church anymore bc I already know what they're going to do before I get there. It's always the same, and I really wasn't enjoying being there. BUT, I really enjoy spending hours at home in my bedroom with Him... worshipping the Lord, praying and reading (and hearing) the word. It has been almost 3 months since my last visit to church, and today I was gonna go, not bc I wanted to, but bc I felt like I "should".  Before I got out of bed, I heard the scripture Hebrews 10:25, and began to read and understand what it is truly saying. You ready know what my conclusion is. I will not assemble with the harlot, bc I am not of the harlot!! Praise The Lord!!  I know the Lord allowed me to find your article and website today, (I have NEVER seen it before or even heard of it) and I thank Him, and thank you for sharing The Truth!  "Now unto Him who is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy, To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and forever.  Amen."
