DAY 91 (2018) - How can you completely destroy your seven Canaanite nations? (Please click here for English podcast)

Silence

1.   Put on your “brakes” and stop for a moment of silence
2.   Wait for God. Breathe deep for God's peace and feel His presence. Exhale your worries.

Praise and Thanksgiving

1.   Think through your day, all the times that made you smile
2.   Thank God for all those moments, and for all those people


Confession and Repentance (Subjective Shifting Devotion Method http://bishopsilas.blogspot.ca/2009/08/count-down-5-subject-shifting-devotion.html)

1.  Pray for the Holy Spirit to work in you:

     “Dear Holy Spirit, shine your light into the places of darkness in my life. Show me my sins, everything that blocks me from encountering God. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.”


2.  Through the Holy Spirit, examine yourself for a short silence and then pray:

     "Dear Lord Jesus, thank you for dying on the cross for our sins and being victorious over death and sin. I confess my sin to you(pause, to tell Jesus what the Holy Spirit has shown you). Forgive my sins by your blood and help me follow you. Holy Spirit, fill me that I may be able to receive your gift to love God and His people. In Jesus Name I pray, Amen."

The Word, Time with Abba (Psalm 46:8-11; Deuteronomy 18:1-20:20; Luke  9:28-50Proverbs12:10)

    My Listening 
               The message I got today from our Lord Jesus Christ is "How can you completely destroy your seven Canaanite nations?".

               Your question may be "What have the seven Canaanite nations to do with me?".

               Firstly, you should know how wicked those Canaanite nations really was according to Deut. 18:10-13. Nowadays, people are committing similar sins like abortion, all kinds of witchcraft or spiritist!

               Secondly, the Israelites did not completely destroy those nations according to Deuteronomy 20:17 and they suffered just as God said before they even entered into the Promised Land: they learned to imitate the detestable ways of the nations(Deut. 18: 9) and then those wicked people taught them to follow all the detestable things they did in worshiping their gods(Deut. 20:18).

                Thirdly, The consequence not to destroy those God commanded them to destroy is that they were being destroyed many years later!

                 So, if you are not willing to destroy those sins God commands you to destroy and sooner or later those sins will destroy you!

             Actually, since March 27, 2018 I got the same messages repeatedly and you can see in the photos below of my journal on that day of the same theme "Drive out your seven Canaanite nations". And on that day my catch is that the seven Canaanite nations to us today is somewhat similar to the "Seven Deadly Sins":

    1. Pride      驕傲
    2. Greed    貪財
    3. Lust       好色
    4. Envy      嫉妒
    5. Gluttony 貪吃
    6. Wrath     暴怒
    7. Sloth      怠惰 






               Then, just two days ago, on Good Friday, I designed this check list for brothers and 
               sisters of Richmond Emmanuel Church to have an examination and invited them to
               come out to the front to put that on to a big Cross. When I saw brothers and sisters
l.             lining up to put that on the big Cross I was in tears. And then I found out there were
               32 brothers and sisters had all seven tics. And most of them with six to five tics! 

               I praise the Lord for many of our brothers and sisters were willing to acknowledge 
               our sins and to ask our Lord Jesus Christ to help them to nail those sins on the cross.

               The key for us to destroy our Canaanite nations, the seven deadly sins is in today's
               Psalm 46:10, "Be still, and know that I am God". Don't move away from Jesus,
               be with Him and to let Jesus to fight for you against those sins. You are not able to
               fight against that, only Jesus!

               And, Jesus way to teach His most beloved apostles, Peter, James and John is to bring
               them to the mountain to experience His Time with Abba. Yes, the way for Jesus to teach
               His apostles it to be with God so that they can be out of darkness into the light of Christ, to   be         willing to listen and obey to His voice and command.

               How is you Time with Abba each day? Without your Time with Abba I do not think that you are able to drive out your Canaanite nations or the seven deadly sins!






     Dear Lord Jesus,
    Help me to be willing to be with you each morning so that I have a better chance to destroy my seven Canaanites nations or the seven deadly sins. In Jesus name we pray. Amen. 

 Reflect on these questions:
    1.  Are you willing to recognize that you are not able to drive out the seven deadly sins?

    2.  What can be the most effective way for you to be free from sin each day?
    
     3. What have you received from Jesus today?
     Praise and Thanksgiving
     Let's give thanks for God with us. Let us praise Him:
