Change Your Garments by Duane Bemis

Change Your Garments

Genesis 35:2, Exodus 28:2-3, Leviticus 16:24, Psalm 30:11-12

Subject: Rid your heart of the flashbacks of sin issues

I HEAR THE SPIRIT SAY TO MY EAR, "CHANGE YOUR GARMENTS." MY HEART SEEMS TO UNDERSTAND THOSE WORDS SPOKEN IN LOVE, AND I WANT TO UNDERSTAND MORE. LORD, SHOW ME, DIRECT ME, AND GUIDE ME THROUGH YOUR WORD TO KNOW YOUR HEART IN REFERENCE TO THESE WORDS...

IN THE BOOK OF GENESIS, CHAPTER THIRTY-FIVE, VERSE TWO, WE READ: "AND JACOB SAID TO HIS HOUSEHOLD AND TO ALL WHO WERE WITH HIM, 'PUT AWAY THE FOREIGN GODS THAT ARE AMONG YOU, PURIFY YOURSELVES, AND CHANGE YOUR GARMENTS.'" GENESIS 35:2 (kJ)

IF WE WANT TO SEEK GOD'S FACE, WE MUST UNDERSTAND THAT IT IS ON HIS TERMS.

NO ONE TOLD ME; MY SPIRIT FROM WITHIN CONVICTED ME THAT I MUST THROW AWAY THESE PERVERTED THINGS. BUT MY HEART STILL HAD THE GARMENTS OF THOSE MAGAZINES DRAPED AROUND IT.

OVER THE NEXT COUPLE OF YEARS, I ASKED THE LORD TO REMOVE THOSE DIRTY GARMENTS. AS EACH FLASHBACK APPEARED, I GAVE IT OVER TO GOD TO CLEANSE ME. I DID NOT TRY TO STOP THE FLASHBACKS. I ALLOWED THE PERVERSION TO REPLAY, THEN I ASKED JESUS TO WASH THE FLASHBACKS IN HIS BLOOD. I NOTICED THAT EACH TIME I ALLOWED CHRIST TO HAVE THE FLASHBACK, I NEVER ENCOUNTERED IT EVER AGAIN, IF I ASKED JESUS TO WASH IT IN HIS PERFECT BLOOD. NOW THAT IS TRUE FREEDOM! JESUS WANTS US ALL FREE-FREE INDEED.

THE SECOND THING THAT JACOB SPOKE TO HIS FAMILY WAS IN THE AREA OF PURIFYING ONESELF. THIS MEANS TO CLEAN UP YOUR ACT. AS IT READS IN THE NEW TESTAMENT ...
