Biblical Repentance
 


What is repentance? - Read Tract - 'Repent or Perish!'

* Repentance means that we confess and renounce our past, present, known and unknown sins to God in prayer.

* Involves a complete transformation of lifestyle. It is not a modification of the old one. We become new creatures in Christ Jesus - the old has gone, the new has come!

2 Corinthians 5:17 - Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!

When do we repent?

* When we begin a spiritual relationship with the Lord our God, the first step is
true, heartfelt repentance, and includes confession and renunciation of past and present sins, and living a life of holiness and godliness - in obedience to God's commandments.

* We confess Jesus Christ is Our Lord and Savior and our belief in Christ's crucifixion, resurrection, ascension and return as King of kings and Lord of lords.


Why do we repent?

* Firstly, God commands everyone everywhere to repent, and He has set a day for judgment.

* There are many scriptural references about repentance:

Acts 17:30-31 -  In the past God overlooked such ignorance, but now he commands all people everywhere to repent. For he has set a day when he will judge the world with justice by the man he has appointed. He has given proof of this to everyone by raising him from the dead.”

Matthew 3:2 - and saying, "Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is near."


Matthew 4:17 - From that time on Jesus began to preach, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven has come near.”

Mark 1:15 - “The time has come,” he said. “The kingdom of God has come near. Repent and believe the good news!”

Luke 3:3 - He went into all the country around the Jordan, preaching a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins.

* Jesus gave strong warnings about repentance. Catastrophes are coming upon this earth because of unrepentant sins and disobedience to God's commandments:

Luke 13:3-5 - I tell you, no! But unless you repent, you too will all perish. Or those eighteen who died when the tower in Siloam fell on them—do you think they were more guilty than all the others living in Jerusalem? I tell you, no! But unless you repent, you too will all perish.”

* Sin separates man from God, and this barrier must be eliminated through repentance if our prayers are to be powerful and effective, because God will not listen to the prayers of those who cherish sin in their hearts:

Psalm 66:18-20 -
If I had cherished sin in my heart, the Lord would not have listened; but God has surely listened and has heard my prayer. Praise be to God, who has not rejected my prayer or withheld his love from me!

* Repentance and baptism is the pre-requisite to receiving God's Holy Spirit:

Acts 2:38 - Peter replied, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.

* Full-immersion baptism is the biblical method:

Matthew 3:16 - As soon as Jesus was baptized, he went up out of the water. At that moment heaven was opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting on him.


How do we prepare for repentance?


Firstly, to begin a spiritual relationship with the Lord Almighty and a powerful and effective prayer life, we start with:

1) Repentance
The first step is repentance where we confess and renounce past, present, known and unknown sins to God in prayer.

We confess our faith in Christ's crucifixion and resurrection and accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior in our life.

2) Spiritual and Household Cleansing -
(As per Prayer page)
A spiritual and household cleansing must be conducted to remove anything that is an abomination to the Lord and will distract us and interfere with our relationship with Him.

This includes, for example, smashing idols and burning sorcery/witchcraft books if anyone has been involved in idolatry (the worship of false gods).

3) Covering ourselves in the Blood of Jesus - (As per Deliverance page)
'There is Power, Power Wonder-Working Power in the Precious Blood of Jesus!'
Being in a right spiritual relationship with God and covering ourselves in the Blood of Jesus will protect us from any human and demonic attacks, accidents, catastrophes and sicknesses.

I cover everyone seeking deliverance in the precious Blood of Jesus Christ.
I cover my body, mind, soul and spirit in the precious Blood of Jesus Christ.
I cover my home in the precious Blood of Jesus Christ.


4) Cast out Demons (from our lives and homes) - (Remember: Demons cannot enter the body of a Christian who is filled with the Holy Spirit). There is a difference between demons operating internally and externally (Read Tracts: "Dangers Of The Occult: Exposed," "Exposing And Destroying Witchcraft!" And "You Can Be Set Free!").

5) Daily Prayer - (As per Prayer page) Read Tract - Powerful and effective! prayers. My prayer page includes what we need to know for powerful and effective prayers and a few examples to get started.

6) Bible Study - Studying God's Word for at least half an hour each day will help us learn more about God, how to serve Him, please Him and do His will and live in obedience to His Commands.
Our lives will have meaning, purpose, focus and direction.
Who do we live for? God and to fear Him and obey His commands!
What do we live for? We live to do God's will and proclaim the Gospel throughout the world! 


Crucial points about repentance

* Firstly, prior to starting our prayer of repentance, we prepare by searching for and collecting the relevant scriptures with an online Bible for the keywords 'forgiveness of sins,' and claim God's promises in prayer.

For example: Isaiah 1:18, Psalm 103:12, 1 John 1:9.

Isaiah 1:18 -
“Come now, let us settle the matter,” says the LORD. “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool.

Psalm 103:12 - as far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us.

1 John 1:9 - If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.

* Faith and repentance is the pre-requisite to answered prayer.

* True, heartfelt repentance is the pre-requisite for forgiveness of sins.

Mark 1:4 - And so John the Baptist appeared in the wilderness, preaching a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins.

* God will not listen to the prayers of unrepentant sinners.

* It is impossible for an apostate to be brought back to repentance.

The word 'apostasy' is not mentioned, instead the word 'falling away' is used in the Bible and there are strong warnings. 
Apostasy means to 'stand away from' the faith. In other words, to turn away from the Gospel and stand opposed to the Living God.
Apostates sin deliberately, habitually, knowingly and defiantly.
It is dangerous for a believer to fall away, and once a believer turns away from the faith it is not possible for him to return to God.  


Hebrews 6:4-6 - It is impossible for those who have once been enlightened, who have tasted the heavenly gift, who have shared in the Holy Spirit, who have tasted the goodness of the word of God and the powers of the coming age and who have fallen away, to be brought back to repentance. To their loss they are crucifying the Son of God all over again and subjecting him to public disgrace.


How do we repent?


* Pray the following prayer of repentance.

* We never repeat memorized prayer or read from paper like a robot.

* When we repent we always pour out our feelings and emotions to God in true, heartfelt prayer with godly sorrow.

2 Corinthians 7:10-11 - Godly sorrow brings repentance that leads to salvation and leaves no regret, but worldly sorrow brings death. See what this godly sorrow has produced in you: what earnestness, what eagerness to clear yourselves, what indignation, what alarm, what longing, what concern, what readiness to see justice done. At every point you have proved yourselves to be innocent in this matter.

Prayer of faith and forgiveness of sins
:

Heavenly Father, God Almighty, Creator of the universe, heavens, the earth, sky and sea and all that is in them, I come to you in the Name of my Lord Jesus Christ and I believe that Jesus, your Son died on the cross for my sins and rose again from the dead, after being in the heart of the earth, the grave, for three days and three nights, and that He is exalted above the heavens, and seated at the right hand of your throne, and He will return as King of kings and Lord of lords.

Matthew 12:40 - For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of a huge fish, so the Son of Man will be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.

Hebrews 12:2 - Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

Revelation 17:14 - They will make war against the Lamb, but the Lamb will overcome them because he is Lord of lords and King of kings—and with him will be his called, chosen and faithful followers."


I believe that Jesus your Son and Great High Priest is divine - totally pure, holy, blameless and set apart from sinners.

Hebrews 7:26 - Such a high priest truly meets our need—one who is holy, blameless, pure, set apart from sinners, exalted above the heavens.

I belong to you and I want to live for you. I totally commit, devote and dedicate my life to you. Father, help me to live a life of obedience, reverence, faithfulness, submission to you and your Son, your laws and commands.

Father, I confess all my sins to you, past, present, known and unknown, I'm sorry for them all and renounce them all. (You can name your sins and renounce each one individually. e.g. idolatry e.g. greed or gluttony etc).

(If you have been involved in idolatry and/or immorality in any of its forms, you need to mention that you commit to destroying any idols including occult - statues, sorcery books, etc, and immoral items - horror, vulgar and obscene music, movies, books, magazines, etc).

Thank you for the promise of forgiveness of sins in your word:

Isaiah 1:18 - “Come now, let us settle the matter,” says the LORD. “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool.

Psalm 103:12 - as far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us.

1 John 1:9 -
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.

Father, I thank you that I'm completely purified, redeemed, sanctified, set apart and made holy for you and set free from all my sins through Jesus' precious holy blood and great and perfect sacrifice.

I'm a child of God with a new life in Christ Jesus.

2 Corinthians 5:17 - Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!

Father God, please come into my life and fill me with the Holy Spirit, transform my life completely and help me to stop sinning. Help me to live according to your Word. I ask for your guidance and strength to walk the path of holiness, godliness, purity, truth and righteousness. Help me along the straight narrow way that leads to eternal life in your Kingdom.

Ephesians 4:24 - and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.

Surround me always with your awesome, holy, glorious, majestic presence and splendor.


I pray in Jesus Name. Amen!

Where do we repent?

* We repent in a solitary place away from all distractions, where we can completely focus on God and His Son Jesus Christ.
