Deliverance

Deliverance from Bondage to Sexual Sin

I began indulging in Internet pornography and self-gratification at the age of about 14. This began an ever increasing addiction to sexual sin that would last about 7 years. I tried so many times to defeat this sin on my own but could never make it. I knew full well that sexual sin is spiritual poison and I would under no circumstances inherit the kingdom of god if I were to die in this condition also being that we are living in the last days and the Lord well be returning soon.

So as time went on the conviction and guilt continued to build up inside of me but I just couldn’t break free. It was like I was chained to it and did not posses the key to break these powerful bonds as I had been trying to under my own strength and abilities.

Until one night after trying to again overcome on my own and failing I finally came to the realization that I would not be able to defeat these sins on my own. I fell to my knees practically in tears and basically asked god for truly the first time for help in overcoming my demonic strongholds. I seriously then when downstairs got back on the internet and within I’d say less that 10 min had found Setting Captives Free Ministry and was in the process of signing up for The Way of Purity course.

As soon as I started the first lesson I nearly broke out in tears because I knew Jesus had answered my prayer and I was bound to soon be free. This course opened my eyes to many truths that I had been previously missing. Such as being motivated by the glory of god as a primary goal when seeking freedom. As well as radical amputation, accountability, true repentance and confession all of which I had been lacking. Initially I did struggle had to take the course over a second time.

It was about halfway through this second time that I noticed big changes. Such as the urge to gratify my flesh and the burning desire to view porn begin to diminish to the point where now I can go multiple days without even being aroused at all and hardly ever have to do battle with fantasizing about porn all the time like i used to. God was delivering me from the evil spirits that had for so long been inside and controlling my thoughts and actions.

This was the work of god there is no way I began overcoming these sins on my own it was him ministering his word to me though these lessons and my obedience to them that lead to breakthrough. That was the major turning point and since then I am free from these sins that had for so long held me captive. So this captive is free.

I now feel like I will be able to help others who are in bondage to these sins and have already found the Lord placing people in my path with the same struggles that I once had to help them find freedom in Christ as well so i’m looking forward to that. I feel as if there is even more I could do to serve god maybe become a mentor for this ministry or even start my own we will see. I firstly want to thank The Lord Jesus whom I love and for my mentor Bill as well as all the other people involved with this ministry. Gods hands are truly all over it.
