Could I Really Be a Pharisee Imprisoned in Error?
Though I didn't know it, I grew up a well-tutored pharisee. It never crossed my mind that there might be pharisees around today. I don't know why it didn't occur to me - they were the number one problem Jesus faced when He walked among men. Did I assume human nature had changed? Did I assume they were no more?
The purpose of this teaching is to identify 49 specific lies which hinder our walk in the Spirit and imprison us in error, repent of them, and establish new foundations in the Spirit which we can walk upon as we take steps forward in the anointing of the Holy Spirit. It is a record of my two-way journaling where God lovingly yet firmly called me to move from error to truth.
Wow! Even a Self-check Test to Help Me See My Blind Spots!
In the related workbook you can take a 40-question test to discover if you have any pharisaical tendencies. (It's both fun and sobering.) What an eye opener this was for me. The results of this test provided me a great opportunity to repent and get off the wrong path. To get me on the right path, the Lord gave me 1-2 pages of two-way journaling on His truths which countered each of the 49 lies I had believed. He replaced my lies and illumined my darkness. He did it lovingly and gently, yet firmly. It was the kindest rebuke and instruction I had ever received. What a glorious heart surgery God performed on me! My prayer is for God to do the same for you, so that you are set free to walk in the Spirit in an new and wonderful way. Let's get out of our prisons of error and get onto God's highway of righteousness, power and anointing!
I Must Repent of Religion So I Do Not Block the Move of the Holy Spirit
When I look at the effect of these lies, I am certain they came from satan (the father of lies) with the goal of obstructing my Christian walk, which is exactly what they did for many years, and exactly why I wrote this book. I wanted to clearly identify each of these lies so I could repent of them and move on with my life. Since I am a teacher, I wanted to provide a road map for you so you too could repent and get on with a successful Christian life! Repenting of these lies removes us from boxes and prisons we have built for ourselves, and gives us a new platform in the Holy Spirit upon which we may walk.
