OPENING PRAYER: Father, remove in me every signal of backsliding.

PREVIOUS KNOWLEDGE: Leaders should ask members if they are ready for the preparation of eternity.

Isaiah 31:6-7 (KJV):
6 Turn ye unto him from whom the children of Israel have deeply revolted.

7 For in that day every man shall cast away his idols of silver, and his idols of gold, which your own hands have made unto you for a sin.

Revelation 3:15-18 (KJV):
15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.

16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.

17 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:

18 I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.

LESSON OUTLINE:

SIGNS OF BACKSLIDING

  1. SPIRITUAL PRIDE: This is when one begins to focus on one’s works and not the works of Christ on the cross. Our works are not the basis of our repentance by God. Pride goes before destruction Proverbs 16:18, James 4:6, 1 Corinthians 10:12, Luke 22:33.
  2. LACK OF HUNGER FOR THE WORD OF GOD: Luke 4:4, Acts17:11, Job 23:12.
  3. A SICK OR NON-EXISTING PRAYER LIFE: When a Christian doesn’t pray privately as much as he used to do, he is backsliding. Jesus says man ought always to pray and not to faint. Luke 18:1, Matthew 6:6.
  4. JUSTIFICATION OF SIN AND LOSS OF SENSE OF GUILT: 1 Timothy 4:1-2.
  5. CONTROL BY THE FLESH: When you follow the desires of your sinful nature, your life will produce these evil results: serial immorality, impure thoughts, Idolatry, outburst of angers, selfish ambition, envy etc Galatians 5:19-21, 1 Timothy 5:6, Proverbs 21:17, 1 Timothy 6:10.
  6. LIVING A HYPOCRITICAL LIFE: When a Christian begins live a double life – he flows with sinners while pretending a form of godliness among believers Ma15:7-9, Mark 7:6-10.
  7. WITHDRAW FROM FELLOWSHIP WITH SAINTS: Psalm 122:1, Psalm 84:10, Hebrew 10:25 says Christians should not forsaken assembling together of fellowship Christians.
