THE REPENTENCE

Written by

The repentance is the fact to feel a sincere regret from sins committed towards God, towards oneself, and towards a neighbor, in order to avoid some unfortunate consequences today and in the future. 

All men need to repent. For, God in his immense mercy wants to be gracious to all. But this grace can be granted only who wants to repent, to believe and obey Christ. Therefore the Lord says:“ have no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but that the wicked turn from his way and live. Turn, turn from your evil ways! For why should you die, O house of Israel?” Ezekiel 33:11

 Seek good and not evil, that you may live; so the Lord God of hosts will be with you, as you have spoken. Hate evil, love good; establish justice in the gate. It may be that the Lord God of hosts will be gracious to the remnant of Joseph. Amos 5 :14-15 

However, God knows in advance those he has chosen himself since the foundation of the world. To prove his justice, he has kept them together with the ungodly people of the earth. They are  Abraham's descendants. They are scattered among the people of all languages and all colors, nothing shows they are different from the others. They don't know that their names are written in the lamb’s book of life. Then they also behave like the other men. 

But God, who is good towards all the men, grants the consolation and a full enjoyment to those destinated to the perdition, while the elected languish, as it is written:“For there are no pangs in their death, but their strength is firm. They are not in trouble as other men, nor are they plagued like other men. Therefore pride serves as their necklace; violence covers them like a garment. Their eyes bulge with abundance; they have more than heart could wish. They scoff and speak wickedly concerning oppression; they speak loftily. They set their mouth against the heavens, and their tongue walks through the earth. Therefore his people return here, and waters of a full cup are drained by them.  And they say, how does God know? And is there knowledge in the Most High?" Behold, these are the ungodly, who are always at ease; they increase in riches”. Psalms 73:4-12

But Abraham's descendant faces various kinds of trouble and comes out with a lot of difficulty, as it is written: strengthening the souls of the disciples, exhorting them to continue in the faith, and saying, "We must through many tribulations enter the kingdom of God."Acts 14:22

To bring back his people to him, God sends to everyone one or several of his chariots, they are like a whirlwind (see Isaiah 66 :15). 

Thus God plugs each of his chosen in an uncomfortable situation. This precariousness can be: a curse, an incurable illness, incest, barrenness, poverty, misery, failures, bewitchments, demonic and satanic possession, jail, captivity, indebtedness, troubles, oppression, slavery, unemployment, famine, chronic celibacy etc. 

All these are turned to the good for those who love God, and those who are called according to his purpose. But among all, we are more than winners by the one who has loved us. (to see Romans 8 :28,37) 

After having used all possible means to be saved from the distress without success, if somebody turns to the Lord and Savior Jesus-Christ, he saves the miserable from his anguish, and it is through affliction he warns him. 

If you are also in a same situation, I let you know you are Abraham's posterity; and that God sent one of his chariots to bring you back to him, bring you forth from the land of Egypt to the kingdom of his beloved Son. For it is 

written: Indeed He would have brought you out of dire distress, into a broad place where there is no restraint; and what is set on your table would be full of richness. But you are filled with the judgment due the wicked; Judgment and justice take hold of you. Because there is wrath, beware lest He take you away with one blow; for a large ransom would not help you avoid it. Will your riches, or all the mighty forces, keep you from distress? Do not desire the night, when people are cut off in their place. Take heed, do not turn to iniquity, for you have chosen this rather than affliction”. Job 36 :16-21 

If you are not from those who reject God, come to Jesus, and give him your burden or your worries, he will himself take care of you. So speaks the Lord:Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.  Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light."Matthew 11:28-26  

The solution to your trouble is nowhere else than in Christ, the Almighty; it is he who has tied you and it is always him that to deliver you, whatever may be your preoccupation. But if you persist in going first to common people (soothsayers and doctors ) to ask them for help, they will neither heal you nor find treatment for your wounds. So speaks the Lord: For I will be like a lion to Ephraim, and like a young lion to the house of Judah. I, even I, will tear them and go away; I will take them away, and no one shall rescue. I will return again to My place. Till they acknowledge their offense. Then they will seek My face; in their affliction they will earnestly seek Me”. Hosea 5 :13-15 

When it happens to somebody to be drowned by sorrows, he must automatically move in search of his God. For the Lord is with you when you are with him; if you seek for him, you will find him; but if you give up, he will abandon you. 

The children of Israel for a long time also stayed far away from the true God, because they didn't have the priests who could teach them the law of the Lord. But in their distress, they turned to the Lord, the God of Israel, they sought and found him. In those days it was unsafe to travel about, for there was serious matter among the people of various lands. A nation was being crushed by another and a city by another, because God was troubling them with all kind of distress. When they heard the prophecy of Azariah son of Oded the prophet, they took courage. They threw away all the detestable idols that didn’t glorify the Lord in their life. They each brought back the altar of the Lord into their body. (To be pleasant to the Lord, you must separate the good from evil in your way of life and bound yourself to the good, so that you may completely be in peace with him). 

They give as sacrifice to the Lord seven hundred cows and seven thousand sheep (what represents seven days of Easter fasting nowadays with confession of the sins to restore the harmony with the seven spirits of life that live in us). 

They entered into a covenant to seek the Lord, the God of their fathers, with their whole heart and soul. He who would not seek the Lord, the God of Israel, was to be put to death, whether little or big, man or woman. (You will make the confession of faith to enter into the holy covenant of the Lord, with imprecation, the seventh day of your fasting). 

They took an oath to the Lord with loud acclamation, with shouting and with trumpets and horns. All Judah rejoiced about the oath because they had sworn wholeheartedly. They eagerly sought God, and he was found by them. So the Lord gave them rest on all side. (You will make an oath of faithfulness to the Lord without constraint, and he will grant you favor).  But as for you, be strong and do not give up, for your work will be rewarded". (2 chronicles 15: 1-15) 

This way is the only any man must take to seek of God, and to find Him. 

There is the wisdom God uses to pull Abraham's seed from the wicked people. For it is written: “For since, in the wisdom of God, the world through wisdom did not know God, it pleased God through the foolishness of the message preached to save those who believe”. 1 Corinthians 1 :21 

So don’t get away from God to put your trust in man, for it is written: “Cursed is the man who trusts in man and makes flesh his strength, whose heart departs from the Lord. For he shall be like a shrub in the desert, and shall not see when good comes, but shall inhabit the parched places in the wilderness, in a salt land which is not inhabited.

 "Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, and whose hope is the Lord. For he shall be like a tree planted by the waters, which spreads out its roots by the river, and will not fear when heat comes; but its leaf will be green, and will not be anxious in the year of drought, nor will cease from yielding fruit. Jeremiah 17 :5-8 

If you have in yourselves a full conviction that without Jesus-Christ, you can do nothing, you can truly be safe in this case. For, Jesus doesn't save the one who still believes in his potentialities. And as long as his heart has not entirely been broken by the trial, till he repents having sinned, he can’t feel relief. 

It is this current situation that makes the man turning over and weakens the sin links in his life. When we are under Satan's power, he always takes the precaution to bind us sin after sin, so that we can’t easily escape from him. 

Therefore God instituted the Passover for the victorious exit of his people from the land of Egypt. (Exodus 12 and 13). 

To loose these links, everybody must repent and celebrate the Easter imperatively as a festival of the Lord. This Passover is a fasting of seven days, which allows man to make up with each of the seven spirits of the Lord he had offended in any way it may be. 

This Passover concerns the children who have already reached the age of the puberty and the adults. For it is from this age behavior of some an others changes, and that men enter fully into knowledge of good and evil. 

Here is how you should handle in the time of celebration of the Passover to Lord: On the first day there shall be a holy convocation, and on the seventh day there shall be a holy convocation for you. No manner of work shall be done on them; but that which everyone must eat — that only may be prepared by you”. Exodus 12 :16 

For seven days you should remove the yeast from your house (Exodus 12 :15). 

“Not one of you shall go out the door of his house until morning”. Exodus 12:22

All the males should be circumcised. (Exodus12:44, 48)

During the fasting time, keep yourself from doing evil. (Isaiah 58:1-14)

 that you shall set apart to the Lord all that open the womb, that is, every firstborn that comes from an animal which you have; the males shall be the Lord's (to God’s servant). But every firstborn of a donkey you shall redeem with a lamb; and if you will not redeem it, then you shall break its neck. And all the firstborn of man among your sons you shall redeem (with a small gift as money that you shall bring to the servant of God).

So it shall be, when your son asks you in time to come, saying, 'What is this?' that you shall say to him, 'by strength of hand the Lord brought us out of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.  And it came to pass, when Pharaoh (Satan) was stubborn about letting us go, that the Lord killed all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both the firstborn of man and the firstborn of beast. Therefore I sacrifice to the Lord all males that open the womb, but all the firstborn of my sons I redeem.'

It shall be as a sign on your hand and as frontlets between your eyes, for by strength of hand the Lord brought us out of Egypt."  Exodus 13:12-16

You should abstain completely from sexual intercourse, smoking, intoxicating drinks and from all narcotics. You won't taste anything, from four o’clock in the morning up to six o’clock in the evening; even no treatment or medicines. 

 Day by day, you should sanctify your soul and confess all your sins in front of God through Jesus-Christ, for he is the flawless lamb who has been sacrificed as a supreme and propitiatory sacrifice for our sins. His blood will serve you as sign on your bodies, and there will be no wound that destroys you. (Exodus 12 :13) 

The confession of sins will be made only between the ones who are converted and God, for a man can only be sincere to himself and towards God. But if you choose to do that by any God’s servant, keep yourselves of hiding any of your sins, so bad it may be. For it is written: He who covers his sins will not prosper, but whoever confesses and forsakes them will have mercy.” Proverbs 28 :13 

You will also sanctify your houses from any abomination of idolatry, such as the worship things of religions and sects ( books, crucifixes,  rosaries, pictures in melting, the built pictures and the photos representing some gods, etc.). “Therefore, since we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Divine Nature is like gold or silver or stone, something shaped by art and man's devising”. Acts 17 :29 

-  The worship things of traditions, taboos and ancestral customs; the sorcery tools, magic and all occult practices tools.

 - the impudicity things and everything that doesn't glorify the 

Lord. 

All must be destroyed in fire, for these things are not only of the links by which Satan keeps us in his kingdom, but even more bridges by which he comes to catch us. Therefore it is necessary to absolutely burn them without keeping any trace. 

He who will keep them at home from the first to the seventh day of fasting risks the death penalty. (Exodus 12 :15) 

You will get rid temporarily of all your ornaments during the fasting (Genesis 35:1-5), and women will use scarves. 

Don't be afraid to act, because the fasting will serve you as protection and Jesus-Christ's blood will save you from Satan’s hand, he will let you go, and your deliverance will just begin. 

The purification of your house will continue by carrying out the restitution of all embezzled gains, no matter their value. For it is written: 'When a man or woman commits any sin that men commit in unfaithfulness against the Lord, and that person is guilty, then he shall confess the sin which he has committed. He shall make restitution for his trespass in full, plus one-fifth of it, and give it to the one he has wronged. But if the man has no relative to whom restitution may be made for the wrong, the restitution for the wrong must go to the Lord for the priest”. Numbers 5:6-8

  You won't keep the memory of sin at home, not even the photos of your concubines or sexual partners. You will also break every illicit relation. For the repentance must be made at hundred percent and no roughly. 

After this entire cleaning, you will regret in front of God for having committed all those transgressions, and you will praise him to forgive all your sins. Then you will take a firm resolution of never more doing that again. 

On the seventh day of the fasting, you will receive the baptism of repentance by immersion through the hands of God's servant who acts in this ministry, and that you will have prevented him before. The fasting will end in the evening of the seventh day and can be followed by a sacred meal or not, it depends on everyone’s means. For it doesn't change in any way the sacred character of the Passover, Jesus-Christ the lamb being already consumed by faith. 

The memory of your exit from Egypt will be made by order from the Lord through the consultation of his Word. 

After your repentance, you will remark that the demons of illnesses that were tormenting you have left. That time you can take some medicines and your pain will be over without resisting. The other demons of prostitution (…), of tobacco addiction, of alcoholism, drug, and many others will do likewise, and you won't be attracted anymore by these things. After that moment, don't try them more. But fight against the vice. “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new”. 2 Corinthians 5 :17 

But if after leaving the uncleanness world, you turn back into your former life, you will throw yourselves again into torments. So speaks the Lord: “When an unclean spirit goes out of a man, he goes through dry places, seeking rest, and finds none. Then he says, 'I will return to my house from which I came.' And when he comes, he finds it empty, swept, and put in order. Then he goes and takes with him seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter and dwell there; and the last state of that man is worse than the first. So shall it also be with this wicked generation." Matthew 12 :43-45 

Seeing that the new converted people are always exhibited to all lusts, you should first of all remain free , waiting until God himself shows you the assembly pleasant to him. 

So says the Lord to the house of Israel: "Seek Me and live; but do not seek Bethel, nor enter Gilgal, nor pass over to Beersheba; for Gilgal shall surely go into captivity, and Bethel shall come to nothing”. Amos 5 :4-6 

Don't run after churches, no! You shall not worship the Lord your God with such things. But you shall seek the place where the Lord your God chooses, out of all your tribes, to put His name for His dwelling place; and there you shall go. 6 There you shall take your burnt offerings, your sacrifices, your tithes, the heave offerings of your hand, your vowed offerings, your freewill offerings, and the firstborn of your herds and flocks. 7 And there you shall eat before the Lord your God, and you shall rejoice in all to which you have put your hand, you and your households, in which the Lord your God has blessed you. "You shall not at all do as we are doing here today every man doing whatever is right in his own eyes”. Deuteronomy 12:4-8

 So you must know at all that the baptism of repentance is not the uncleanness purification of the body, but the commitment of a good conscience towards God (1peter 3:21). It concerns in particular the pagans who come to God to convert. 

But if someone naming brother or sister in Christ realizes that the repentance he had made is not in conformity with that, he should give up and act as Nicodemus, no matter his place in church. He should not be ashamed, but he should humbly accept to be born again. 

Don't especially fight tooth and nail the religion or the church to which you are bound, but seek your salvation. For the church doesn't save. 

Thus, the new birth is for those who think to walk with God, whereas it is nothing at all. Therefore it is written:unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God.  6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.  Do not marvel that I said to you, 'You must be born again”. (Word of the Lord to Nicodemus and his kinds John 3:1-8)

Therefore the Lord declares:Not everyone who says to Me, Lord, Lord,' shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven.  Many will say to Me in that day, 'Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?' 

And then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!'Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock:   and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock. But everyone who hears these sayings of Mine, and does not do them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand: and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it fell. And great was its fall." Matthew 7:21-27

He who won't conform to this kind of repentance, won't be able to escape from Satan nor to resist him. 

If God made all the people of Israel going through this way, all those who want to follow the God of Israel are also forced to pass by this only one way out from the land of Egypt, to go after him to the promise land. This is how they could take a sure starting point in their way with God.
