The War Room Session Two - Video 2 of 2

A picture of GRACE!- My personal testimony-Barbara F Chapmond

Saved by Grace!
Thank You Jesus for saving me and keeping me and filling me with new life, joy, and faith each and every new day. Thank you for your WORD!! Amen

Barbara F Chapmonds Testimony- I “had” a Religion, I “was” Religious then,- I “got” Saved. 

When I was a young child I “had” a Religion. I remember my parents taking me to church on Sundays as a family, this was a weekly routine. When I became a teenager, I “had” another, new Religion and I went to church with my best friend every time the doors were open. 

In my church going experiences I remember “hoping” Jesus would come when I was in church, that’s because I was not sure about my relationship with Jesus,                                                      (I wasn’t saved, only thought I was).

 I remember being “religious” and talking the talk. I was good at telling people what they should and shouldn’t do to stay out of hell. I really thought I was saved and on the right track, you could not tell me any different!! Having an “experience or seeing a light” is not “salvation”.

 You must admit you're a “sinner” and “confess” your sins to Jesus and ask Him to personally “come into your heart. You don’t have to “change first or clean up first”. Just trust Him from your “heart” and He will do the rest, as you grow in your relationship with Him.”.

Before I got saved, I don’t remember sharing the “Love of Jesus” or even leading anyone to Jesus. I was “blinded by the devil” and caught in the “Religious Trap”, like so many are. Satan also knows the Bible; he can make things “Look Godly” when they’re not!

When I was a teen, and even up until I “really got saved” at the age of 27, I was taught you could lose your salvation. Oftentimes, you will hear people say they are “backslidden” or they got saved one time, but they aren’t now.  That is one of satans biggest lies!

 

When the Holy Spirit started dealing with me about salvation, I was in a church revival service. The only other people attending were church members. I thought to myself, “Why are they preaching on salvation, everyone here is saved”.

I was uncomfortable with the preaching, so I thought, maybe God is talking to me and I need to get saved      (remember, I thought I was, for years).

I remember quietly, and only to myself, while sitting in the pews saying, “Ok Lord Save Me” amen. That didn’t do anything for me. In my soul there was a “black, dark space” an empty place that needed something; I just didn’t understand what it was. 

That evening, I went next door to a church members home, I sat on the floor around the coffee table and talked to her about my life. For about two hours, it was a fight in my spirit/heart, I had to “give up” my good deeds/works and confess I was really a sinner and needed Jesus.

I remember ONE QUESTION my friend asked me, “What has Jesus done for you, you told me what you’ve done for Him, but what has He done for you? You talk about Jesus and the Holy Spirit getting my attention! So I prayed, gave all my good deeds to Jesus, confessed to Him I was a sinner and I needed Him to come into my heart and save me; by faith, not counting on any “feelings”. That’s it! 

So simple, but it was from my HEART, not my head knowledge this time.

Jesus saves “one time” and He seals and keeps you as His child forever. (Read the Book of Ephesians, you will understand salvation and being sealed by the Holy Spirit of God within you, a lot better. The first book written in this ministry was on Ephesians) 

After salvation, we need to get into Gods Word, ask Him to show us how to live, follow His instructions and bear fruit. That means there will be a change in our hearts, attitudes, friends, places we go, and things we say. The Holy Spirit will guide you.

The War Room – Selected Verse “Session Two”

Ephesians  4:29-32

Don't use foul or abusive language.  What does this say to you?

Let everything you say be good and helpful, so that your words will be an encouragement to those who hear them.  How can we encourage others with our words?

30 And do not bring sorrow to God's Holy Spirit by the way you live. Remember, he has identified you as his own, guaranteeing that you will be saved on the day of redemption. 31 Get rid of all bitterness, rage, anger, harsh words, and slander, as well as all types of evil behavior. 32 Instead, be kind to each other, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God through Christ has forgiven you. How do we accomplish obedience to such attitudes?

Proverbs 11:13

A gossip goes around telling secrets, but those who are trustworthy can keep a confidence. What exactly does a gossip say or do? How do we handle asking others to pray for someone that is in deep anguish or trouble without crossing over into gossip?

Psalms 141-1

 O Lord, I am calling to you. Please hurry! Listen when I cry to you for help!2 Accept my prayer as incense offered to you, and my upraised hands as an evening offering. 3 Take control of what I say, O Lord, and guard my lips. Does this prayer sound familiar to any of us? Anyone want to share an experience?

Ephesians 5:1-14

 Imitate God, therefore, in everything you do, because you are his dear children. What does it mean to “imitate” can someone look it up on google for us?

 2 Live a life filled with love, following the example of Christ. He loved us and offered himself as a sacrifice for us, a pleasing aroma to God….. 7 Don't participate in the things these people do.   Why do you think the scriptures tell us “do not participate in certain activities and hang with certain people? What happens when we do? 

 

 

 

1 John 1:8-10

If we claim we have no sin, we are only fooling ourselves and not living in the truth. 9 But if we confess our sins to him, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all wickedness.  Does this verse give us a “license to sin”?  Open discussion

Galatians 6:1-3

Dear brothers and sisters, if another believer is overcome by some sin, you who are godly should gently and humbly help that person back onto the right path. And be careful not to fall into the same temptation yourself. 2 Share each other's burdens, and in this way obey the law of Christ. What do you think this verse is saying?

Psalms 119:45

 I will walk in freedom, for I have devoted myself to your commandments. What does “freedom” mean to you? Can someone look the word up?

2 Corinthians 3:17-18

 For the Lord is the Spirit, and wherever the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. Does anyone want to share what this verse is saying to them?

Galatians 5:1

So Christ has truly set us free. Now make sure that you stay free, and don't get tied up again in slavery to the law. What things would cause us to “get tied up again” into slavery, what does slavery mean here, can someone look the word up?

Romans 6:22-23

 But now you are free from the power of sin and have become slaves of God. Now you do those things that lead to holiness and result in eternal life. 23 For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord.

Why do you think Jesus keeps telling us not to sin but walk in “freedom”?

Our last verse today has the ACTION words needed so we can fulfill these scriptures today. What three words are they???
