Apostasy


Hebrews 6:4-6 says” For it is impossible, in the case of those who have once been enlightened, who have tasted the heavenly gift, and have shared in the Holy Spirit, and have tasted the goodness of the word of God and the powers of the age to come, and then have fallen away, to restore them again to repentance, since they are crucifying once again the Son of God to their own harm and holding him up to contempt.

walk away

definition of the word Apostasy, The term used for the condition of those who once professed the Christian faith but have since departed from its doctrine.

What causes a person to walk away from the faith? Was it the events that took place in his or her life? Could it been that they had a hard time understanding living their new life as a Christian? Or was it they just couldn’t put down those sins? Regardless of what the reason was the word clearly tells us that some walked away from the faith.

This is really a hard pill to swallow because I can remember the day I became a born again believer I was a young teenager age 16, I remember just how happy I was. But somewhere down the road of my new-found journey I was what the author of Hebrews talked about I walked away from God. Eventually over a period of time I came back but during that time of walking away I always had an empty void on the inside of me, I tried everything I knew to fill that void. Nothing worked.

When I came back and rededicated my life I had to ask myself a very serious question concerning this verse, ” was I really a Christian in the beginning or was I only professing to be one?” it’s never easy when we have to face the truth about ourselves. The truth was I was only professing I wasn’t really a Christian.  How I came back? I had a mother who prayed for my soul.

Why am I sharing this with you today? Because during the Old and New Testament there were people who was what we call Apostasy and still to this day we have people who are apostasy.

Anytime a person walks away from the faith we should be going after them to bring them back, just like Jesus does He left the ninety-nine to go after the one who was lost.

You and I know people who have walked away the question now is what are you going to do?

  1. Thanks for this timely posting – we were just studying Apostasy in ministers’ class last week. I worked hard to remember the meaning and asked God for clarity and revelation. In our quest for understanding and knowledge – only the things of God truly matter. Keep being a good steward over what the Lord has given you Desiray. #inspired

    1. You know sis it has been a blessing to me over the years. And I did not want to ignore what was so obvious in front if me.

      When I came back to the faith I made up my mind that I was gonna study the word for myself. I wasn’t gonna go by what someone said. I had to take my relationship with Christ serious. It’s been a journey and I am thankful God never stop pursuing me.

      Its nice to know that this is a refresher word for you. I am sure you enjoyed what GOD spoke to your heart about this word.

  2. Thank you for this post. I have also had a rather rocky spiritual walk. I think that though I knew about Jesus, I didn’t KNOW Jesus personally. I’ve realized that through Jesus’ walk on earth, He had followers (or fans) who looked to Him for blessings and miracles and then He had His disciples who knew Him well… and even they consistently failed Him. For example, Peter denies Jesus three times… but Jesus then redeems him by giving him an opportunity to express his love for Him. Let’s just remember that we are new creations through Him, moment by moment, if we allow Him to renew us through His Holy Spirit. Thanks again for the post! 🙂

    1. Thank you for sharing how you too went through it. I do believe that it makes us much stronger once we have that real initmate relationship instead of having a surface relationship. Please do come back again
