Day 1: The Fruit of Genuine Repentance

True Repentance
Repentance
You are welcome to our 3 days fruit fasting and prayers that starts today, 21st Friday through 23rd Sunday April 2017.

Today is the day 1 of the fasting.

HOW TO GO ABOUT THE FRUIT FASTING By Evangelist Joshua Orekhie

1. The fasting starts from 6am - 12pm everyday.

We are to break the fasting by 12pm with fruits. So after 12pm, you are free to take any kinds of fruits only that are not processed or cooked or in most cases diluted. This set of people to take this fasting with the breaking of fruits only are those who have been taking this kind of fasting.

2. This stage is for those who are just taking this fruit fasting for the very first time. This set of people will start the fasting from 6am - 12pm. So immediately after 12 pm, It is advisable that you may use fruits and water to break the fasting till the period of 11:59 pm.

Once we enter a new day, that is from 12am, eating of fruits or drinking of water will stopped. If you know that you cant take it, do not force yourself. It is better you dont do it than to do it and stop half way.

NOTE: There are several fruits in the market which you can buy and use to break the fasting. For example fruit as, Orange, Pineapple, Banana, Cucumber, Mango, Water Melon, Carrot, Paw paw, etc




INTRODUCTION



The fruit of a true repentance is awesome. God requires the fruit of a  genuine repentance from His children. Anyone who claims to be a true servant of God must do away with all manners of sin and repent from them immediately.

Repentance is the key to salvation. There are blessings that requires you to confess and forsake your sins. This is the areas most people are finding it difficult to do. It is easy to see some believers praying forgetting to make a restitution of their sins.

In Psalm 66:18, the Bible says,  If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me:


Iniquity is the enemy of God. Sometimes when we say, for example, Father I repent  from my sin. Forgive me of my sin, I promise not to go back to my sins. So help me God. We do not mean it, that is, we are not making the confession or repentance genuinely from the heart.  The fruit of repentance is the ability to do the will of God.

Peter said in Acts 3:19, ''Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord. Sin and holiness does not go with each other. You cannot practice sin and expect the grace of God to abound Romans 6:1.

Jesus made a holy statement, ''Repent of your sins and turn to God, for the kingdom of God is near.'' (Mat 3:2). Our Lord Jesus is seriously weeping for sinners who have backsliding and doing the things of the world. What a joy in heaven for a sinner that repented from sin. Any believers that aspires for true repentance will receive the mercy of His Father. Proverbs 28:13



WHAT IS REPENTANCE?


Repentance means to surrender ones life to God


David A. Desilva put it this way: ''Repentance is the divinely appointed means of repairing the relationship between God and humankind..''

To repent  means to change or have a change of mindset. No wonder the Bible says, if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature, old things have passed away, behold all things became new.

Repentance involves putting away the sinful activities of a person. Our sins make us unclean and put a damacation between God and man Isaiah 59:2.

The Lord has declared that ''No unclean thing can inherit the kingdom of heaven.'' Repentance is sometimes painful but it leads to Gods forgiveness and lasting blessings. John writes, If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us (1 John 1:8-10).

The major key to true repentance is confession. Unfortunately, many have lost the true meaning of repentance. For example, some people repent of their sin, by tomorrow they continue in the habit of that sin. When you ask them why? They will tell you that it is the devil.

The call of repentance may seem redundant for those who are wallowing themselves in sin. When you fail to repent of your sins, you will be condemned by God. When you deliberately commit yourself into sin thinking that God will forgive you, quite right He will. But do not forget the passage that says For the wages of sin is death, for the gift of God is eternal life. Sin has a good connection with death.

The power of sin has exposed the destiny of people to the devil. So to free themselves from such sin become so difficult.

The story of a man shocked me. He sent me a message about his situation on WhatsApp. He requested me to pray for him which I agreed to. I told him to embark on 7 days fasting and prayers.

On the third day, a woman came to visit this man in his house. Before you say, Jesus is Lord, he has already slept with this woman. He called me to know if he should continue the fasting or start all over again. I told him to continue with prayer of mercy through the fasting.

As Christians we must strive to keep our thoughts pure and in line with the word of God. Philippians 4:8 challenges the Believer, "Whatsoever things are holy, ... pure, ... and of good report ...think [meditate] on these things."



WHAT TO DO TO REPENT FROM SIN


1. Give your life to Christ.

2. Determine to identify the areas of your sins
3. Cry out to God for total repentance through prayers and fasting
4. Confession and repentance of sins
5. Enter a covenant with God of not going back to your old life
6. Making restitution
7. Asking for the blood of Jesus to speak mercy and forgiveness
8. Forgive those that are offend you Matt 6:14-15
9. Be cautious of your friends around you and your environment 
10. Determine not to be ignorance of the things of God 1 Peter 1:14-16
10. Live a righteous life Leviticus 20:26

GOOD NEWS FROM HEAVEN!!!


I want to congratulate you because the Lord has just answered your prayers in Jesus name. He asked me to tell you that He has forgiven you and have mercy upon you. Your repentance in Christ Jesus has come to stay. The devils and his host are afraid of you, this is because you are no longer in darkness. The power of God has translated you into the kingdom of His dear son Col 1:13. You are now a true child of God having his/her name written in the book of life. Be rest assured that Satan may try to look for other ways to test you. Do not give in to the devil. Always be sober and vigilant. (1 Peter 5:8)



TAKE NOTE OF THIS IMPORTANT POINT


1. Avoid distraction (This can bring disconnection of the spirit between you and God) If your spirit is asking you to go to a secluded area, kindly obey. 
2. Stop focusing your mind on food or water during fasting (Many people do this alot)
3. Pray very well (There's no point of fasting when the need for prayer is lost) I see lots of people fasting but their prayer is weak. 
4. Do not tell everyone that you are fasting (Mat 6:16)
5. Only fruits and water are recommended 
6. Study your Bible very well
7. Do not entertain fear or doubt in your heart
8. Forgive people during the fasting
9. Do not keep malice, gossip around when you are on fasting or prayers
10. Avoid any kind of sins (fornication, stealing, cheating, anger, wickedness, smoking, masturbation, lying, alcohol, partying or clubbing, hanging out with unbelievers, strife, emulation, jealousy, pride, etc (Gal 5:19-21). If you practice some of these sins during fasting or prayers, your prayers cannot be answered. 
11. If your spirit is disturbing you to sow, you can also do it.
