The enemy’s weapons: Unforgiveness – part 1

Filed under: Spiritual Warfare School — kellporten @ 15:34

In earlier parts we talked about forgiveness. We suggest that you read them again before reading this part.

Spiritual weapons: Forgiveness – part 1
Spiritual weapons: Forgiveness – part 2

How does the enemy attack with unforgiveness?

Let’s have a look at two lies that the enemy uses to attack us with unforgiveness:

• The lie that we cannot be forgiven
• The lie that we cannot forgive

How does the enemy use the lie that we cannot be forgiven?

When we sin, God has given us a wonderful opportunity. We can come to Him and receive forgiveness.

1 John 1:9
If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

Notice that it says, ”If we confess”. It doesn’t say that we will be forgiven when we cry, when we are begging on our knees, or when we do good things for God. It is when we confess our wrongs that we are forgiven.

The enemy doesn’t want us to receive God’s forgiveness, so he tries to make us think that what we have done cannot be forgiven. He can offer the thought, “It is no use for you to ask for forgiveness. You have gone too far!”. What he doesn’t tell you is, you will be forgiven when you confess your sin.

After having confessed our sin, we need to trust what the Word of God says and look at ourselves as forgiven. The enemy is called the Accuser, and the father of lies. He will remind you of the sins that you have already confessed. He tries to deceive into feeling condemned for something that God has already forgiven us, and cleansed us from.

In the next part we will talk about how the enemy uses the lie that we cannot forgive.
