Setting Captives Free

Every Christian is a soldier for the Lord. The battlefield we fight on is our mind. The weapon we use is the Word of God and the Mind of Christ gives us our orders.

Like Paul said, we're pressing toward the perfection, seeking to throw off every weight that's hindering a closer walk with God.

Besetting sins
Some believers have problems with giving up evil habits. These evil habits can be besetting sins such as smoking, drinking, sexual addiction (pornography), gambling etc.

It could be anything that hinders you from spiritual progression. And that "anything" is your enemy.

Satan can be defeated
Perhaps you find yourself fighting an enemy that you cannot defeat? Perhaps you're into any of these habits? If you are, Jesus Christ is always there to help you.

Sometimes by sending someone with an encouraging word, and other times by directing you to someone who can be an accountability partner.

Be sure. The enemy is defeatable.

Jesus Christ is setting captives free
I have come across a site on the internet that is run by volunteers who offer help and guidance to people who are bound by besetting sins such as I have mentioned above. On their homepage www.settingcaptivesfree.com they write:

Are you captive? We are here to help you find freedom by God's grace.

They offer many testimonies from people who have found freedom in Christ by doing lessons online and committing to a personal mentor.

The main point they try to get across is: "You cannot do it in your own strength and will power, but only by leaving it in the hands of Jesus Christ."

God bless you all.

Brother Erlend,
Greetings in the name of Jesus Christ. According to what I have read on this site, there is a lot that we have in common as believers of the Message.

The importance of the baptism of the Holy Ghost, all night prayer meetings, witnessing and so forth ae major subjects in my life. I would like to know you more and to get to know more about your ministry. I speak the Truth.
