If you where saved already then I'm sorry your stuck with God's Spirit till you meet Jesus face to face. Just learn from this mistake and also you're fine because God already knew this would happen but yet still sent Jesus to die for you in order to forgive ALL your sins. When God forgives, He forgets so don't worry about anything your fine look below, but just don't make any more promises lol and even if you do you're still forgiven

Ezekiel 36:27 ESV

And I will put my Spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes and be careful to obey my rules.

Ephesians 1:13-14 AMP

In Him you also who have heard the Word of Truth, the glad
tidings (Gospel) of your salvation, and have believed in and
adhered to and relied on Him, were stamped with the seal of
the long-promised Holy Spirit. That [Spirit] is the guarantee of our inheritance [the
firstfruits, the pledge and foretaste, the down payment on our heritage], in
anticipation of its full redemption and our acquiring
[complete] possession of it--to the praise of His glory.


Isaiah 43:25 ESV

"I, I am he

who blots out your transgressions for my own sake,

and I will not remember your sins.

Joe, you know that sin separates the believer from God's fellowship.. We all know that only too well. Stop sinning.. I know. Easier said than done.. But just give it your all and ask God to help you thru it.. Also if you are not keeping in His word and talking and praying to Him continually and sharing fellowship with other like minded christians. Its going to be a grind.. We cannot do it alone.. And if you are watching alot of television or movies and surfing seedy sites on the net.. Its going to take its toll on your relationship with God.. You know what needs to be done.. Start by bei g honest with yourself. Then present yourself to God.. He loves you and wants you to turn to Him.. He never went anywhere. It was you that took your eyes off Him...

Ah...I thought "Nothing can separate us from the LOVE of GOD?" Romans 8:38-39
And I thought the LORD said "I will never leave you, nor forsake you" Hebrews 13:5 & Deuteronomy 31:6

So which is it?

Has sin separated you from HIM or can nothing?

In the Old Covenant the SPIRIT would/could come and go.
David cried out "Don't take your SPIRIT from me".
But now that JESUS has come (New Covenant) HE now promised, that HE will send HIS SPIRIT to us to be with us forever. John 14:16

Which is it?
Where do you want to live?

There are only 2 choices - ever.

The tree of LIFE or the tree of knowledge of good and evil.
There is the First Adam or the Last Adam.
There is the SPIRIT by Faith or the Flesh by Sight.
There are 2 roads one narrow and one that is easy to find and see (large/wide).
There is GRACE or your own effort your own christian religion/law keeping. (law keeping)
There is LOVE (spent for others) or self lust (lust) spent for self.

I could go on.
But it is all about how you see it/believe it...what are you trusting?

-eric

Joe, God is Omnipresent and His divine spark is always within us. Think of the spark as something that one must fuel and nourish to become a larger flame. It grows larger the more we fuel it. How do we do this? Through prayer, meditation, devotion, helping others, and avoiding sin. This is not necessarily easy, but I know you will feel the Presence again with your continued love and devotion to God, Christ, and mankind. Praying for you!

God has forgiven ALL sins, so no sin doesn't separate us. They only thing that stops us from being in fellowship is not being saved/choosing not to be in a relationship with Him. So basically the only thing that can stop you is YOU. If you're saved, then NOTHING separated us, absolutely NOTHING

If you were ever converted to Christ then you still have the Holy Spirit.

Ephesians 1:12-13 (KJV)
"That we should be to the praise of his glory, who first trusted in Christ. In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise,"

Ephesians 4:30 (KJV)
"And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption."

Joe, God forgives us in Christ when we confess our faults
to Him and ask that we be forgiven in CHRIST.

God is true and He forgives but we are the ones who hold on to our guilt
as if we must somehow suffer to pay for our mistakes.

Jesus suffered for us so what we are asked to do is confess our
faults to God through Christ and RECEIVE forgiveness.

You have told God you are sorry so RECEIVE His forgiveness.

How do you receive?

By faith that when God says something it is true.

1 John 1:9
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our
sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.


Look at my signature line...

Do you see what it says?

It says that God made Christ who was sinless to become our sin
so that we could be and have Christ's righteousness before God.

God sees Christ when we come to Him in Christ's name.

We are the sons and daughters of God in Christ.

If you come to God in your own strength, merit and goodness you
will come away feeling as though nothing happened but when you by
faith come to God in Christ's name you can rest assured that God
has forgiven you and that you are His son and are BLESSED.

The devil will try to hold us in our guilt but if we believe that God is
true and what He says can be counted on, we will ignore the devil,
confess our sins and receive our forgiveness not because we are good
enough, sorry enough or have suffered enough but because Christ made
a way for us by His taking all our sins on Himself.

On Christ alone I stand, all other ground is sinking sand.

Take it by faith.....
