Soul Ties 19

Welcome to #SoulTies 19. In this session, we start looking at a topic I title “Errors of the past”. If God has truly forgiven us, do we have to bear the consequences of the errors of our past?

#SoulTies 19 starts shortly.

1. Good morning y’all. Pls email me ur testimony on SoulTiesTestimonies@karisministries.org if u have been blessed by #SoulTies tweets.

2. I want to state that we are not here to condemn anyone or stigmatize anyone who has repeatedly fallen into sin due to #SoulTies

3. We are here to expose #SoulTies as the works of the enemy that the blood of Jesus has been shed to purge us from.

4. I also want to say that this isn’t a motivational broadcast but this is the gospel of Jesus Christ. #SoulTies

5. We are looking at this from the standard of the Word of God and no less. No compromise. #SoulTies

6. The flesh finds the Word and the Spirit of God unbearable but we cannot dilute the message. #SoulTies

7. Please take time off to LIKE our Facebook page using this link http://dld.bz/cU2zp #SoulTies

8. Please join our FaceBook group here as well to receive timely updates about our activities. http://dld.bz/cU4fR #SoulTies

10. So please be sure to hook up with me on Google+ for the hangouts. https://plus.google.com/+OlusolaAdio

13. Please visit our new blog page to access audio downloads of the #SoulTies tweets. http://dld.bz/dgwCB

14. This week, we are looking at an issue that could arise in a believer’s life after you have dealt with #SoulTies

15. I want to label this “Errors of the past”. You will only fully grasp the title when you’ve read all my scenarios. #SoulTies

16. A central pillar of the gospel of Christ is the forgiveness of our sins. Without this, there isn’t any gospel. #SoulTies

17. However, it’s crucial for us to note that there are a few players in the spiritual equation around us #SoulTies

18. Player 1: God. John 4:24 God is a spirit. He is father to whom have accepted His Son, Jesus Christ. #SoulTies

19. Player 2: Man. The saved man is described as a new creature in Jesus Christ. 2 Cor 5:17 #SoulTies

20. Player 3: Angels. They have been sent by God to minister to us. Ps 103:20 #SoulTies

21. Player 4: Satan & Demons. They constantly work against God & His purposes for man. Eph6:12 #SoulTies

22. Jesus purchased the forgiveness of sins for us by going to the cross. Col 2:13 #SoulTies

23. Col 2:13a And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, #SoulTies

24. Col 2:13b hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses; #SoulTies

25. Almost every Christian denomination agrees on the doctrine of God’s forgiveness for our sins. #SoulTies

26. However, I have these scenarios to present that will set us thinking. #SoulTies

27. Scenario 1: Many years ago, a Unilag student habitually stole clothes belonging to other students. #SoulTies

28. She did this by going to the line where other students hung their clothes and then helped herself. #SoulTies

29. Somehow, she attended a Christian gathering on campus and received Jesus Christ into her life. #SoulTies

30. Two things happened to her. 1. She received the forgiveness of God for her sins. Col 2:13 #SoulTies

31. 2. She became a new creation in Christ and lost the taste for stealing other peoples clothes. 2 Cor 5:17 #SoulTies

32. Job done! She’s forgiven, sanctified, has her ticket punched for heaven, #SoulTies with stealing broken.

33. At this point, we should be satisfied that Christ’s redemption work was fulfilled in her. #SoulTies

34. However, one day she decided to return the clothes she stole as an unbeliever to where she took them from. #SoulTies

35. Shock! Shock! The owners saw her, confronted her and assembled a mob to lynch her. #SoulTies

36. All her pleas that she was now a born-again Christian fell on deaf ears as she got beaten the more. #SoulTies

37. All her pleas that she was now reformed in character fell on deaf ears. However, she got rescued by some Christians. #SoulTies

38. Debate then started on campus. Should she have been let off seeing that she was changed and returning the loot? #SoulTies

39. What happened to God’s forgiveness? How come she got beaten up so badly despite God’s forgiveness? #SoulTies

40. Please reply me with your opinion. I won’t take any sides. Should she have been let off by the owners or not? #SoulTies

41. The owners were not buying the God’s forgiveness plea. Do you think they were wicked or reasonable? #SoulTies

42. Do you think it was a smart move returning the clothes and almost getting killed in the process?

43. My little contribution here is that God’s forgiveness wasn’t enough to help avert d consequences of her actions from men. #SoulTies

44. Scenario 2

45. A married mother who wasn’t saved started having a fling with her boss. Her husband wasn’t saved either. #SoulTies

46. Oops! She got pregnant for her boss and decided to have this love child. She also slept with her husband to deceive him. #SoulTies

47. She had this child and husband believed that was his fourth child but didn’t her boss was the real dad. #SoulTies

48. 10 years later, she got saved, forgiven, sanctified, filled with the Holy Ghost, reformed, heaven-bound. #SoulTies

49. She then decided to let her husband know that the child wasn’t his but her ex-boss’s child. Child is now 10. #SoulTies

50. Her husband was having none of this forgiveness thing and he headed for the divorce courts. #SoulTies

51. He insisted on smashing the marriage and taking the kids though deed was done in the wife’s wild oat days. #SoulTies

52. Once again, a forgiven saint had to face the consequences of her pre-Christian era actions. #SoulTies

53. My questions to y’all are these. Were these people really forgiven by God as we believe from the scriptures? #SoulTies

54. If yes, how come they met with these consequences that would make us think God was still angry against them? #SoulTies

55. Could it be that we have only peddled half of the medication to sinners and missed out the other half? #SoulTies

56. What went wrong with these 2 people in these scenarios? #SoulTies

57. Before you think you have the answers, let me throw a provocative question at you. #SoulTies

58. Imagine you married your wife of husband while you are still both in the world. #SoulTies

59. Imagine both of you got saved the same day in church, filled with the Holy Ghost, tongue talking etc #SoulTies

60. Then your spouse confesses to you he did the last 3 maids or she did the last 3 houseboys. #SoulTies

61. What would your reaction be? Would God’s forgiveness still count for you? Will you scatter things? #SoulTies

62. I’ll leave you in suspense here and continue with this gist in #SoulTies 20.

63. We have a #SoulTies Google+ hangout next week Sunday @ 5:00pm GMT. Don’t miss it. See u there.

64. Please help spread the word about #SoulTies and get your tweeps to follow the tweets on @solaadio

65. See you guys next week at the #SoulTies Hangout on Google+. #SoulTies
