"Overcoming Temptation"


“Overcoming Temptation”


No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to humanity. God is faithful, and He will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation He will also provide a way of escape so that you are able to bear it.     1 Corinthians 10:13


TEMPTATION, the act of being TEMPTED, especially to evil.  Mankind, is subject to TEMPTATION, every day.  Both BELEIVER and UNBELIEVER, the difference is the CONDITION of one’s HEART, and what one does with the TEMPTATION. 


For the UNBELIEVER, they are not ONLY ATTRACTED to the TEMPTATION, but they are constantly LIVING a FALLEN LIFESTYLE, meaning that TEMPTATION has WON the battle in their life.  They are DEFEATED, and SIN and DISOBEDIENCE to God is controlling their very existence.  They cannot, on their OWN, SAVE themselves from an ETERNITY in HELL, with ALL its HORRORS, and NO WAY of ESCAPING, once they have reached their DESTINY.  


However, for the TRUE BELIEVERS, they are a POSSESSION of the Almighty God, they are His Children, and He will NOT allow them to be TEMPTED beyond what they are able to handle.  With the TEMPTATION, He will PROVIDE a WAY of ESCAPE so that they can bear it.   This is possible because, there is NO TEMPTATION that has OVERTAKEN them, except what is COMMON to HUMANITY.  The ONLY WAY for the TRUE BELIEVER to fall to the TEMPTATION is through their OWN DESIRES of the FLESH, and their WILLINGNESS to fulfill those DESIRES.


The Holy Spirit of God indwells EVERY TRUE BELIEVER, and it is His place to bring CONVICTION into the HEART of MANKIND, when they are TEMPTED and FALL to the TEMPTATION, in order to SATISFY the FLESH.  It is the TRUE BELIEVER’S place to TURN AWAY FROM the TEMPTATIONS and TURN TO GOD, ASKING and SEEKING a way to ESCAPE the clutches of that DASTARDLY DEVIL, who wants NOTHING MORE than to SHAME the TRUE BELIEVER, before their HEAVENLY FATHER.  And God WILL PROVIDE a WAY of ESCAPE, in order for them to bear it.  If you are a TRUE BELIEVER, and you have FALLEN to the TEMPTATION, God is FAITHFUL and READY to show you the WAY to be a VICTOR and OVERCOME the TEMPTATION.  So, go to Him, NOW, and CONFESS your sins to Him and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS.  TRUSTING Him, for His POWER to DELIVER you.  DRAW CLOSE to Him, and He will DRAW CLOSE to you.  Do this NOW!


If you have NOT given your HEART and LIFE to God, you are destined for an ETERNITY in HELL, with ALL its HORRORS.  However, God is giving you the opportunity NOW, for you to come to Him with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART, and a WILLINGNESS to TURN AWAY FROM your TEMPTATIONS, and SINFUL LIFESTYLE, and to CONFESS your sins to Him, and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS.  BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART, that JESUS CHRIST died for YOU, and that He is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God.  You MUST ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and become His Child, an OVERCOMER, and VICTOR over your TEMPTATIONS. And receive HEAVEN, as your ETERNAL HOME.   Do this NOW, while you still can.  He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
