42 Jesus told them, “If God were your Father, you would love me, because I have come to you from God. I am not here on my own, but he sent me. 43 Why can’t you understand what I am saying? It is because you are unable to do so! 44 For you are the children of your father the Devil, and you love to do the evil things he does. He was a murderer from the beginning and has always hated the truth. There is no truth in him. When he lies, it is consistent with his character; for he is a liar and the father of lies. 45 So when I tell the truth, you just naturally don’t believe me! 46 Which of you can truthfully accuse me of sin? And since I am telling you the truth, why don’t you believe me? 47 Anyone whose Father is God listens gladly to the words of God. Since you don’t, it proves you aren’t God’s children.” John 8:42-47
9 Do not lie to one another, seeing that you have put off the old self with its practices 10 and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge after the image of its creator. Colossians 3:9,10
Our OLD SELF (If you have been born again in water and Spirit see John 3) has died and we are now a new creation. BUT Satan wants us to hold onto our old self, even if it’s just a few things here and there and the main one I can see among families is LIES! We allow these “little” lies in and I’m afraid that you are not truly aware of WHO it is you have allowed into your home….into the very place where your children lay their heads down at night. The FATHER OF LIES has set up shop in YOUR home and it was YOU who welcomed him when you lied to your husband. Lied to your wife. This means that it is YOU who needs to evict him.
How do you do this?
Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and wonderful results. James 5:16
Understand that there may be consequences of these lies, be accountable to them. However, you MUST do so in order to restore the peace within your home. To restore the safety of your children.
Those who are being confessed to….remember your role in this life. Remember that we are to forgive as we are forgiven. Confess your feelings and begin anew. If you’re breathing….there is still time.
