In this life, it is appointed for the believer in Christ to wrestle. While deliverance is given by God for them that are bound, you must never confuse deliverance with a magic touch that removes all temptation and evil desire. You will never be completely delivered within this flesh and you will never be perfect. We are commanded to be perfect and that should be what we fight for and we should never lose that drive for perfection, but even Paul said, “dear brothers and sisters, I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus (Philippians 3:13-14).
The interracial wrestling will linger, even when the terminology changes and society is no longer divided by race. Why? “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places” (Ephesians 6:12). Our enemy is unseen and uses human flesh as instruments for evil. We must be aware of ourselves and make sure that demons are not using us. They are crafty and not every thought within your mind is your own. The easiest way to recognize a foreign thought is to know God. You know him best by spending time and reading your Bible. The Holy Spirit will reveal himself and give you discernment.
So while the wrestle may be frustrating, you can do all things through Christ who strengthens you. You are more than a conqueror through Christ Jesus. You cannot win the struggle without the Lord. The stakes are high. There are acts that will disqualify you.
These are sins that will send you to hell if you die in them:
Those who live immoral lives, who are idol worshipers, adulterers or homosexuals—will have no share in his Kingdom. Neither will thieves or greedy people, drunkards, slanderers, or robbers. And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God (1 Corinthians 6:9-11).
Do not die in these sins. “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit” (Acts 2:38).
The interracial wrestle may be constant, but the end of those who live for the Lord will have peace.
