The Seven Steps To Freedom, Part VII
Deliver me from the guilt of bloodshed, O God, the God of my salvation and my tongue shall sing aloud of Your righteousness. O Lord, open my lips, and my mouth shall show forth Your praise. Psalm 51:14,15
David was freed from his sin and delivered from the yoke of bondage that held him to once again praise God. His heart was cleansed and his conscience restored so that he could be free of guilt and condemnation from the devil. You too can be free from sin by crying out to God for mercy and by receiving the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ to cleanse you and restore your fellowship with God.
The danger of sin, especially for the believer is the fact that a demon or demons are attached to each sin, bringing with them destruction and left unchecked, even death. Many say that Christians can't have demons, but as the late Derek Prince once said, "A Christian can have anything he wants!" The problem is, sin carries with it judgment, and the judgment of God is carried out by the demons. The wrath (anger of God) of God comes upon the sons of disobedience.
Jesus spent much of His time in ministry casting out demons from sinners who willfully committed iniquity and transgression against the Most High God. Since the garden of Eden and Adam's disobedience, sin has been carried down the bloodlines of millions of unsuspecting souls by the powers of darkness, robbing, killing and destroying lives. Today deliverance is a dark mystical practice reserved for back rooms and crazed fanatics who scream and shout at the demons hoping to cast them out by their loud voices, but in actuality deliverance is a valid ministry of Jesus given to all the blood washed saints of God.
The lion (Satan) has come up from his thicket, (hiding place) and the destroyer of nations is on his way. He has gone forth from his place to make your land (flesh) desolate. Your cities lament and wail. For the fierce anger of the Lord has not turned back from us. Jeremiah 4:7,8
