Welcome to worship the word with pastor Rob were in his free in the square past Robert has been talking about the enemy schemes to take us into bondage and how Jesus wants to for today's message Pastor Robert is going to discuss three things that can lead to open doors of demonic influence and how to close the welcome which joint past Robert today will talk about believers in bondage were going to keep nailing this subject down. And here's the reason that I will continue to mail the style because I want you to be free and may believers never get free indeed because they don't believe that, indeed, they can be luggage only more questions and questions In bondage, show you very clearly in Scripture that believers can be in bondage.

I sold out of about three more open doors today. I number one just continued iniquity continued iniquity opens the door for the demonic in our lives so John chapter 8 verse 31 said Jesus said to those Jews who believed melanoma believers. They believed believe believers believed him. If you abide in my word, we talk about filling our house with the word of God. You are my disciples indeed and use a program referring back to disciples or believers you disciples shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free. They answered him were Abraham's descendents, and I've never been in bondage to anyone.

How can you say you will be made free. This is one of the best illustrations in the Bible of people being bondage and being blind to their bondage.

I want you to think about what was said here again, I want you to member the Jesus Jesus said this to believers the Jews who believed him.

He said you have to stay in my word. If you want to really be photographed, abide in the word to be free and then I make a statement that to me is probably one of the funniest statements in the Bible. I want you to read it again and all you just think about what I said for moment and how funny this is all right I said verse 33 they answered him, we are Abraham's descendents and have never been in bondage to anyone ever read the Old Testament had been in bondage to believers can be so, so they sent him away never been in bondage never. So Jesus decides to make it clear who's in bondage rights. Look at the very next verse 34 Jesus answered, most assuredly, I say to you, whoever commits sin is on again bondage is a slave of sin.

Okay, he got everyone of us alone right whoever commits owner Thomas would commits because it's important and a slave does not abide in the house wherever they saw the not trying to abide in him, but a son abides forever.

Therefore, if the son makes you free, you shall be free and enough is our salvation here is talk about that as believers we can choose to to to walk in the sun ship he's given us. We can choose to go back into slave ship and then bondage as believers. They say don't do that don't don't do that I'm I came to like you free and actually makes this statement.

Whoever commits sin is a slave is in bondage to set this work commits very very unique. Again, you can just think about it commit.

Just think of the word committed commit committed. Here's what it actually means whoever is committed, whoever is committed to continuing and see if the actual word from the Greek means to formulate a plan. Whoever formulates a plan to see is in bondage to sin that we've all been there, but don't monetize this morning that we've all been.

We've all had a sin in our lives that we formulated a plan to stay in that CN to accommodate that CM and keep it hidden.

That's bondage that's that's not a weakness.

That's bondage. You know verse about this written true believers again.

Romans six, verse 16 do you not know or some verse I do not understand that to you present yourself slaves to obey, you are that one's slaves were nearby. Obviously slaves would represent bondage whether OCN leaving the death or of obedience leading to righteousness that he's talking to believers is don't you understand that you're going to serve that you can decide you're either going to serve CN and it's only the death talking to believers, are you going to serve obedience which leads to righteousness. 20 going to serve showing Old Testament Scripture, that's absolutely phenomenal.

This Jeremiah 7 verses eight through 11 says behold you trust him lying words that cannot profit. They asked these questions will you steal, murder, before we think safely of literal murder. Remember when Jesus came in the seminal amount he said if you hate your brother, your murdered commit adultery. What Jesus said about that if a man lost his heart.

He's already committed adultery will you do these things swear falsely burn incense to bail and walk after other gods that you do not know, and then come and stand before me in this house, which is called by my name upwards. They come to church and say we are delivered to do all these abominations has this house, which is called by my name, become a DN of thieves in your eyes. Behold, I even I have seen it says the Lord. Again there are so many symbols to Jesus casting demons out of believers in Scripture that we so miss them but one of the biggest ones is that, remember, Jesus went into the temple with a whip and drove thieves and robbers out of the temple and we understand that we come together and this is a temple or believers coming in, but we also understand that we are the temple of the Holy Spirit and Jesus wants to get these out of the temple. None of us. None of us would would have the doorbell ring and going with people and see some guys there calling him Gambino, black, short black pants know that the typical robber receipt got the black ski mask know that some guns are so you know, some lots of bar something standing there know they're coming to still tell us what none of us when unlocked the door and cracked it and then walk away when we. If you've ever looked at pornography is what you did is all I'm never going to go that far. Do that it's okay to watch movies with nudity okay to look at some things on the Internet that are hard-core porn. You just unlocked it and cracked it and walked away and tell me you'll come in your command. So number one is continued iniquity. Here's number two continued illness, continued illness can be. It's not always, but it can be a sign that endorsement open and the enemies come in and he's building a list with okay look at Luke chapter 13 verse 11 says, and behold, there was a long one who had a spirit of infirmity. The Bible tells us there is a spirit of infirmity.

There is right there 18 years and was bent over and could in no way raise herself up but when Jesus saw her.

He called to him.

That's unusual because most people called to Jesus is what you notice that they want moments because he knows she is one of his he calls her to him and said to her while you are loosed free from your infirmity. And he laid his hands on her and immediately she was made straight, and glorify God, but the ruler of the synagogue, the pastor of the local church.

There answered with indignation because Jesus had healed on the Sabbath and he said the crowd there are six days on which hand artwork. That's actually 1/4 member that Scripture watches interpretation of that Scripture therefore, and be healed. OBM and not on the Sabbath day. Less liquid. This is a moment from suffering 18 years and says her you should come another night if you what are they that have church that your sister is ridiculous. The Lord answered running his campaign speech and try to be nice to everybody. There is not each one of you in the Sabbath loosed his office are doggy from the stall and lead it away to water so that is very important… This woman wants what he says being a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan has bound. Think of it for 18 years we loosed from this bond on Sabbath very important. Jesus said this is a daughter right now there are literal sons and daughters Abraham natural and their spiritual sons and daughters but I don't think is referring to naturally because if we read only John eight they said to him, why were were were sons of Abraham. He said no, Abraham is not your father if he were your father you would believe me. The people who are true children of Abraham believed me and then he goes on to this. Your of your father the devil's workshop sure just a couple of verses only true children of Abraham doesn't mean it will take the gospel.

Did you first real love is relevant what is your free will doesn't mean name so that when you when you accept Christ your son of Abraham or daughter).

Galatians 3 verse seven says therefore know that only those only those who are of faith or sons of Abraham. Galatians 329 says if you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise of the world. The word of God is eternal so that was it written yet it was written for the foundation of the world or God's eternal Bible tells us that the true children of Abraham are those who are faithful believe. So Jesus said to fully free and says this will get set for you. She's a daughter of Abraham. She's a believer is in bondage for 18 years, had a spirit of infirmity. Now I'm not saying please hear me.

I'm not saying that every time you get sick. I am saying though that sometimes in the Bible. Demons bring sickness and make sense if there thieves and they want to steal that one of the areas they would like to steal your health if it's causing something naturally new but it has a spiritual route. Jesus takes care spiritual roots that affect the natural it's all through the Gospels.

If you need healing in the area read the Gospels, just read them over and over and over asked him 38 God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power and went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with him XRT versus 11 and 12 God worked unusual miracles by the hands of Paul, so that even handkerchiefs or aprons were brought from his body to the sick and the disease is left them, and the evil spirits went out of them as a people who are sick and not only they do get healed, but the evil spirits (and that's all I got you so dear and sometimes we open a door, and we only know we open the door and the Lord has to show us. I have lots of accidents growing up I remember saying the word Lord is there an open door in my life and the Lord said yes just like that sibilant was the open door configuring the CCN that was open door, and here's what he said to me you believe the lie you believed the lie that accidents are normal for you. There are many people who believe that sickness is normal for them and they will tell you just as humanly as anyone else I know God heals yes I believe in healing believe it for the you believe a lot continued illness could be assigned the demonic influence in your life and here's the third one is continued influence more chapter 7 is the last one continued influence. I'll explain what I mean by that verse 24. From there he arose and went to the region of Tyre inside and he entered a house and wanted no one to know what but he could not be hidden for a woman whose young daughter noticed a young daughter. By the way, Karen thought about how this could affect the child how child could have a demon hadn't clean spirit and Bob's hotels vertically exiting the herd about him along with his young daughter had likely spirit heard about him, and she came and fell at his feet below was a great a sorrow Phoenician by birth, very important why the Bible tells this and will explain that and she kept asking him to cast the demon out of her daughter. But Jesus said to her, let the children be filled first 40 is not good to take the children's bread and throw it to the little dogs and she answered and said to him. Yes, Lord, yet even the little dogs under the table eat from the children's crumbs and then he said to her for this saying this this humility in your life.

Go your way. The demon has gone out of your daughter and when she had come to her house, she found the demon gone out and help her daughter lying on the bed. Couple things you need understand is that she's agreed she's not a Jew but she's also a sorrow Phoenician sheet. She is a mixture and II don't think the God is talking about racial interracial marriage because he never talked about the Bible the way we would consider it the way he talked about it was believers and unbelievers.

He when he said don't do this, he was talking about Israel making agreements with other nations to give their sons and daughters in marriage. As a business agreement and he said when you do that you're going to bring in the gods of those nations and is going to affect you, believers and unbelievers when it talks about this it's it's very nice of you a reason why says this.

She's a sorrow Phoenician so she's half Phoenician need to know that Tyre used to be Phoenician. It was that the to the nation. Tyre was formerly known as nation of Phoenician need to know some that Phoenician Phoenicia is considered by most theologians as the seat of paganism that entered into Israel. But let me remind you of someone who was born in Phoenicia, Jezebel and Jezebel married Ahab and brought the occult and witchcraft and false gods in paganism into Israel.

More than any other person.

It came from Phoenicia Phoenicia was an occult city. It was the seat of witchcraft and paganism.

This phone was sorrow Phoenician sorrow, meaning Syrian and Syriac truth about the Bible is product you will see. Also, we talks that Siri talks about pride. Pride and witchcraft. For the time when I was studying this hottie just jumped off the page at me in this laptop, you know, I think there are many believers that have this mixture in your life.

Listen carefully.

There prideful because they believe that they can dabble in the occult and not affect that's our Phoenician there's pride that we can do small things that we know are cultish and not facts.

And when explain what I mean by select anything. All I would never dabble in the occult, was a rare carefully there demonic movies that believers watch demonic cartoons that we allow our children to watch this woman had a young daughter. She had a background that they called it was already affecting her daughter. Demonic videogames celebrating the holiday that worships ghosts and witches and by the way, if you don't know it comes from the word worship.hello hello hello means to worship God said you shall hallow me and me only anyway open to the regional horoscope. You know what your future is here it is right here. This is your future. When you read your scriptures Deuteronomy 18 verses nine through 12. When you come into the land which the Lord your God is giving you. You shall not learn to follow the abominations of those nations. There shall not be found among you, anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass to the barn.

Edwards allows his children get involved in which all one who practices witchcraft or a soothsayer or one who interprets omens or sorcerer or one who called your spells are medium our spiritist or one who calls up the data séance for all who do these things are an abomination to the Lord and because of these abominations the Lord your God drives about the report. I remember when I learned this morning when I asked you to forgive me for participating in séances doing things as a Ouija board as a child. Halloween always there when I asked you to forgive me and I renounce Satan and his kingdom, and I know that the Lord Jesus Christ is a true Lord I ask you to forgive me and I renounce witchcraft in the cult of my life because I don't open the door to the Indiana one open door for my children now one more thing about this passage she comes up and she asked for deliverance.

She's asking for deliverance for her daughter the demon to be a dog that's delivered and Jesus makes the statement that if you don't understand biblical language you won't understand the statement of Mark 727 Jesus said to her, let the children be filled first 40 is not good to take the children's bread and throw it to the little dogs now he's referencing.

She's great.

He's Jewish and he was sent to the Jew first Paula symptoms you first. We as a church like gospel, to the Jew 1st.the Jew only to the Jew first says let the children be filled first. What's what's good about that is if you're Gentile you can get it. Second gospel still comes to Gentiles and work were grateful for that.

But he's also referred referencing something much more. Because remember, we just read Scripture that only those who are faith are the children that the true children. He says let the children be filled first and he makes a statement that again if you don't understand biblical language you will understand this, they said it's not right to take what belongs to the children and give it to the dogs. So Jesus is not rude is simply using biblical language because dogs represent something in the Bible. He's saying this is what you did because you don't you not you believe the Messiah your are immensely short. There are Revelation 22 verse 14 said blessed are those who do his commandments that they may have the right to the tree of life. The tree of life is in heaven, and may enter through the gates into the city. This is representing Kevin, but outside outside outside the city outside of heaven are dogs mostly Bible says dogs and sorcerers people believing witchcraft and sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and whoever loves and practices like that either outside of heaven. There were little dogs or dogs represent something is very easy to know what they represent.

Because there's an airplane Scripture at the represent lost people say people go to heaven. Whilst we will go to heaven.

Dogs represent most people only circular I think is what Jesus said, she said, Lord, I need deliverance is what he said it's not for lost people suffer the loss people illicitly since it's for the children to listen.

Here's my point. If the children can't be in bondage. Why did Jesus say that deliverance is for children and he calls it the children's see what he saying furious. You have to believe in the Messiah to have deliverance on the one that brings deliverance in order to get freedom you have to believe in me is what is telling is not for lost people deliverance she's asking for deliverance. This is not for most people is for children but her children don't need it.

Why would it be for us is pretty clear. Believers can be much and they need to be set for so if you're in bondage how to get free. Same thing with this woman you humble yourself. She said the other North even dogs get Crohn's on amazing statement, Jesus said for that same work there because of your humility to humble yourself, your daughters, free. When I was 30 years old I was preaching in a conference started preaching shortly after I got saved collecting after one evening sessions I went back to hotel a princely was flipping through the channels and watch something that I should watch.

Call Debbie actual next day told her I was very of the opening Debbie opening people around about it wasn't trying to hide it. I just was not free. I was in bondage a matter of my life on Sunday morning I wasn't speaking and one of the other speakers were speaking and he preached about believers being in bondage is like the Holy Spirit. Secondly, you humble yourself will set you free.

I had been in bondage to immorality.

Since I was about 12 years horrible and and I remember when he gave the invitation. I was seated around the front row. I was the very first one I was the very first sentence for a mate something man can be free.
