Steps Outline:  Walking to Freedom in Christ
Intro: In Christ, God has set you free, but believing satan’s lies keeps you in bondage

The Bible says: It is for freedom that Christ set us free.
Stand firm then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery. Gal 5:1.

The Bible says: If you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord”
and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead,
you will be saved. Rom 10:9.

Salvation:               Believing you were a sinner and Jesus is God’s Son who died for your sins.
Sanctification:       Becoming more like Jesus by turning away from sin and turning to God.
Discipleship:          Teaching others to be more like Jesus and turn from sin to God.

Steps Outline
Help you become sanctified by turning from sin to Godly behavior.
Help you to disciple others by teaching them to be free from sin in Christ.

Do you want to love and be closer to God and to others in your life?

Jesus death on the cross set you free to love God and others.
Satan’s goal is to separate you from God with lies and patterns of sin.
Satan wants you to continue in bondage like being in a jail with walls.
Sins and lies are like walls built between you and God or others.
Each of the steps has prayers to help you to break down these walls.
So we can be free to love and be closer to God and others.

Before each step is a prayer for that sin or lie:
Submit:                         Surrender to God’s commands for His glory and honor.
Recall:                         
Ask God to help you remember sinful thoughts, emotions and actions.
Protect:                        
Ask God to provide you safety from satan’s lies and interference.
Resist:                          
You then, stand firm against satan so he will flee.

Then it lists:
Specific ways you sin and build walls in this area.
Specific ways to stop sinning and break down these walls.

Confess:                        Admit to God doing something wrong, or sinful, against Him.
Renounce:                   
Declare to God and satan to resist and throw off sin.
Repent:                        
Commit to change away from sinful thinking, emotions and behaviors
Thank:                         
Give God appreciation for forgiveness and the strength to change.
Obey:                           
Commit to obey the Bible to follow His teachings for good habits.

Step 1 Counterfeit vs Real: Overcoming False Guidance with Renunciation

When you became a Christian you learned the truth, but before, all (you) have sinned.
Or you may continue to believe and follow some traditional or Non-Christian beliefs and rituals.
These sins need to be confessed, renounced and repented for you to go into future free.
It is also important for you to learn from the Bible to teach and disciple family and friends.

God said in the Bible, you are to only worship Him.                                                               Ex 20:2,3
God has defeated satan with the blood of Jesus Christ on the cross.                                  Rev 12:11
In Jesus Name you have authority over satan.                                                                      Lk 10:19

Do you trust God and His truth to meet all your needs?

Non-Christian or traditional beliefs and rituals turn to satan for power                                Eph 6:12
Satan is limited in power, his only power is the power of the lie.                                            Jn 8:44
If he can lie and get you to believe it, you will not trust God to meet your needs.                Php 4:19
Then you may turn to satan for power over your fears and problems.

Dear Heavenly Father,

Submit:                        
You have given Your Bible to guide me into all truth.
Recall:                          
Bring to my mind any non-Christian beliefs or rituals.
Protect:                       
Prevent satan from trying to keep me from worshiping only You.
Resist:                         
In the name of Jesus I resist satan keeping me in bondage. Amen.

Traditional beliefs and rituals:                             Bible is the Word of God:                      2 Ti 3:15-17
Supreme being is distant and uncaring.                God loves you He sent His Son.             Jn 3:16.
Worship many gods and many spirits.                   Worship only God.                                  Ex. 20:2,3
Sacrifices and ritual cutting to please spirits.     Jesus only sacrifice ever needed.          Heb. 7:27
Powerless and fears of bewitching and spirits.    In Jesus you have victory.                     1 Co 15:57
Use idols, charms and magic for evil.                   Condemns idols and magic  .                    Eze 13:20
Use witch doctors to fight evil causing illness.    Call the elders to pray.                           Jas 5:14-16
Divination seeks knowledge of future from evil. Discernment seeks will of God.              Ro 12:2
Return curses with curses.                                    Return curses with blessings.                 Lk 6:28

On a separate piece of paper list your past traditional or non-Christian beliefs or rituals.
Pray the prayer below for each way you turned to non-Christian beliefs instead of the Bible.

                                     Dear Heavenly Father
Confess:                      
I have turned to traditional beliefs and rituals for power from satan.
Renounce:                   
I declare to You and satan I will no longer do these things and serve only You
Repent:                       
I commit to turn from the sin of turning to traditional beliefs and rituals.
Thank:                       
Thank You God for forgiving my sin and for giving me the strength to change.
Obey:                          
I commit to learning the Bible to begin teaching and discipleing others.
.                                                                                                             In the Name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

Step 2 Deception vs truth: Overcoming satan’s lies with God’s truth

The truth will set you free.                                                                                                         Jn 8:32
The Bible, is truth.                                                                                                                       Jn 17:17
Jesus came to testify to the truth.                                                                                             Jn 18:37
The Holy Spirit was sent to lead you into truth.                                                                        Jn 16:13

Satan is the father of lies.                                                                                                           Jn 8:44
His only power is in lies: about who you are and who God is.
Statements of Truth on page 9 Are truths from the Bible about who God and satan are.
In Christ on page 10 Are truths from the Bible about who you are since you were recreated in Christ.

                                      Dear Heavenly Father,
Submit:                       
You are truth and I submit to you to walk in truth to be set free.
Recall:                         
Help me remember ways I have believed lies.
Protect:                       
Prevent satan from trying to keep me from walking in obedience to truth.
Resist:                          
In the name of Jesus Christ I resist satan’s lies.. Amen.

Lies of the world: happiness is…                                    Truth of God: Joy is
Seeking your own will.                                                   Obeying God’s will.                                Ps 19:8

Money and things.                                                          Generosity.                                            2 Co 9:11

Alcohol, drugs, excess food.                                          Being filled with Holy Spirit.                 Ro 14:17

Lies to yourself:

It is okay to be with those who sin.                               Fellowship with believers.                     1 Jn 1:7
Observing sinful things.                                                  Dwell on honorable things.                    Php 4:8

Lies to protect yourself:
Lying.                                                                               Being truthful with self.                       Eph 4:25
Blaming others.                                                               Take responsibility.                               2 Th 3:6-15
Doing too much for others.                                            Teach others responsibility.                  2 Co 8:13

Lies from fears

I declare to You and satan I believe only Your truth as is in the Bible
Repent:                       
I commit to turn from the sin of believing lies.
Thank:                       
Thank You for forgiving my sin and for giving me the strength to change.
Obey:                         
I will learn truth from the Bible and use discernment for Your Will.
.                                                                                                    In the Name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

Step 3 Bitterness vs Forgiveness

Neil T. Anderson has said forgiveness is the most powerful step. Be slow and complete.

Anger gives satan a foothold, but forgiveness breaks this foothold and sets you free.

In your anger do not sin: Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry, and do not give the devil (satan) a foothold. Eph 4:,26, 27. Anyone you forgive, I also forgive. And what I have forgiven—if there was anything to forgive—I have forgiven in the sight of Christ for your sake, in order that satan might not outwit us. For we are not unaware of his schemes. 2 Co 2:10, 11.

Bitterness gives satan a chance to build walls separating you from God and others.               Eph 4:27
God forgave you all your sins with Jesus’ death and He commands you to forgive others.     Eph 4:32
As Creator He knows how you are made. He knows the damage bitterness causes.                Ps 139
He commanded you to forgive is out of His love and His desire for you to be free.

Do you trust God to give you freedom through forgiveness?

                                         Dear Heavenly Father,
Submit:                           
You have forgiven me through Jesus, I surrender to You and to forgive.
Recall:                             
Help me remember those I need to forgive.
Protect:                          
Protect me from satan blocking me from obeying You by forgiving
Resist:                            
In the name of Jesus I resist satan from keeping me in bitterness. Amen.

Trust God:                      To hold responsible those who have sinned against you.
Forgiveness is:                 Bible command, let go of right to revenge, releases bondage to Satan.
Forgiveness is not:           Making excuses, saying it did not matter, forgetting.
Forgiveness is not:           A feeling or a thought rather an act of will from the heart.

Do not wait until:             The person asks for forgiveness or you “feel like” forgiving.
Reconciliation:                  Requires change in the other person and may not happen.
Forgiveness is:                  To heal your hurt and bring you closer to God and others.

Make three lists on another piece of paper:

WHO WHEN                      WHAT HAPPENED                                HOW IT MADE YOU FEEL
Ex. Parents, family,             Ex. Things that were done or               Ex. Hurt, angry, abandoned,
friends, teachers,                that should have been done                 fearful, anxious, shamed,

yourself, G
od                       which resulted in hurt and pain.           guilty, shunned.

Repeat the prayer below for each person on the list.

                                     Dear Heavenly Father
Confess:                      
I did not obey Your command to forgive others as You have forgiven me.
Renounce:                   
I declare to You and to satan I choose to forgive these people who hurt me.
Repent:                       
I turn from the sin of bitterness in thoughts, emotions and actions.
Thank:                        
Thank You for forgiving my sin and for giving me the strength to change.
Obey:                          
I will bless and ask You to bless those who have hurt me.
.                                                                                                                 In the Name of Jesus. Amen.

Step 4 Rebellion vs Surrender

Authorities have been placed there by God, so rebellion against authorities is rebelling against God.

The Bible says: Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. Consequently, whoever rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted. Rom 13:1,2 For rebellion is like the sin of divination, and arrogance like the evil of idolatry. 1 Sam 15:23

Do you trust God to work through the authorities He has placed in your life?

                                    Dear Heavenly Father,
Submit:                      
You have taught me to surrender and submit to You and authorities.
Recall:                        
Help me remember ways I have rebelled against You and others.
Protect:                      
Prevent satan from trying to keep me from walking in obedience to surrender.
Resist:                        
In the name of Jesus I resist satan from keeping me in rebellion. Amen.

Exceptions to this:
When an authority tells you to do something you know is against God’s law.
Ex. Rwanda: authorities telling people to kill their neighbors.
Ex. When people in authority want you to commit sexual sins, lie or steal.

Most of the time rebellion:
Is not because the authority wants you to do something against God.
Is because the authority wants you to do something against your will.
Is you know what the Bible clearly says, but you do not do it.
Is quiet, you say, “Yes, I will do it.” knowing you will do not do it.

On a separate piece of paper make a list:

WHO, WHEN                                                        WHAT WAYS HAVE YOU REBELLED
Ex. God, pastors,                                                    Ex. disobedience, disrespect,
parents, husbands,                                                 criticism, complaining,
bosses, teachers,                                                      arguing, silence,
laws, instructions,                                                   coveting, comparing,
reject wise advice.

For each person or event pray the prayer below.

                                       Dear Heavenly Father
Confess:                        
I have rebelled against You and those You have put in authority.
Renounce:                    
I declare to You and satan I will not let him tempt me to be rebellious.
Repent:                         
I commit to turn from the sin of rebellion in thoughts, emotions and actions.
Thank:                          
Thank You for forgiving my sin and for giving me the strength to change.
Obey:                            
I will trust You and obey and pray for those You have put in authority.
.                                                                                                           In the Name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

Step 5 Pride or Worthless vs Humility

You should not feel pride or worthless, instead you should humble yourself before God who made you.

Pride is to think more of yourself than you should.
Pride is to forget all your gifts, talents, and possessions are from God.
Pride is to forget what God teaches in the Bible about being humble servants to others.

Worthless is to think less of yourself than you should.
Worthless is to forget you are made in God’s image to do work He planned for you to do.
Worthless is to forget what God teaches in the Bible about who you are In Christ.

Neil T. Anderson defines: Humility is confidence properly placed in God.

God made each of us different because God made different plans and work for each of us. Eph 2:10.
The Bible says: There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit distributes them. There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. There are different kinds of working, but in all of them and in everyone it is the same God at work. Just as a body, though one, has many parts, but all its many parts form one body, so it is with Christ. For we were all baptized by one Spirit so as to form one body— Now if the foot should say, “Because I am not a hand, I do not belong to the body,” it would not for that reason stop being part of the body. And if the ear should say, “Because I am not an eye, I do not belong to the body,” it would not for that reason stop being part of the body. But in fact God has placed the parts in the body, every one of them, just as he wanted them to be. 1 Cor 12: 4-6, 12,13, 15, 16, 18.

Do you trust God to use you exactly the way He made you as His humble servant?

Each person has gifts and talents, a place to work in the church and community.
There is no room for pride, worthless, divisiveness, covetousness, condemnation.

                                       Dear Heavenly Father,
Submit:                         
You commanded me to love and work together as a body for Your kingdom.
Recall:                           
Help me to remember ways I thought more or less of myself than I should.
Protect:                         
Prevent satan from trying to keep me from walking in obedience to humility.
Resist:                           
In the name of Jesus I resist satan from pride or worthless. Amen.

Wanting everyone to do things your way instead being patient for God’s way in God’s timing.
Depending on your own strengths, not letting God show His strength in your weakness.|
Comparing yourself with others as less attractive, less talented, less fortunate, less worthy.

For each area of pride and /or worthless pray the prayer below.

                                         Dear Heavenly Father
Confess:                          
I have compared myself to others with either pride or worthless.
Renounce:                      
I declare to You and to satan to be humble to God and others.
Repent:                           
I commit to turn from the sin of comparing: pride or worthless.
Thank:                            
Thank You for forgiving my sin and for giving me the strength to change.
Obey:                              
I will love, encourage, value, and respect every one.
.                                                                                                       .In the Name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

Step 6 Habitual Sin vs Freedom

In Christ you know you are saints, holy ones, already seated in the heaven-lies.
But you still struggle with sin every day and you get into a sin-confess-sin-confess circle.

Listen to Paul’s struggle Does is sound like your own struggle with sin?

I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For I do not do the good I want to do, but the evil I do not want to do—this I keep on doing. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body that is subject to death? Thanks be to God, who delivers me through Jesus Christ our Lord! Ro 7:15, 18, 19, 24, 25.
Paul is thankful to Jesus Christ because Jesus died once for all of his sins.

                                      Dear Heavenly Father,
Submit:                        
You have forgiven me of all my sins thru Jesus, but I still struggle with sin.
Recall:                          
Help me remember ways I have repeatedly sinned against You and others.
Protect:                         
Prevent satan from trying to keep me from walking in obedience to freedom.
Resist:                           
In the name of Jesus I resist satan from keeping me in bondage to sin. Amen.

Replace habitual sins by doing things to love and become closer to God and others.
Do things you prayed under “Obey” at the end of each step.
Do things that are the virtues related to these sins. (right hand column)
Do things that are in maintaining freedom (page 9)

Do you believe deep in your heart you have been forgiven of all of your sins?

Habitual sins list                                                                                          Good habits
Other steps traditional, lies, bitterness, rebellion, pride/worthless     Glorify God          1 cor 10:31
Greed: worship money, stealing, gambling, coveting, over work.             Generous               2 Cor 9:11
Substances: alcohol, tobacco, drugs, excess food.                                  Filled Holy Spirit  Ro 14:17
Control: anger, rage, abusing others, manipulation, domination              Compassion            Eph 4:31-32
Divisiveness: gossip, complaining, criticizing, condemnation, lying          Peace maker          Ro 12:18
Hopeless: believe helpless, wait for rescue, fantasy not action.            Good works           Eph 2:10
Sexuality: lust, pornography, intimacy outside of marriage.                   Purity                     1 The 4:7

Past or current sexual sins involve forming spiritual soul ties whether they were done to or by you.
You need to break spiritual soul ties with them to be able to walk into the future clean and free.

On a piece of paper make a list of sins you struggle with and spiritual soul ties then for each one pray.

                                      Dear Heavenly Father
Confess:                       
I have refused to obey Your commands in these areas of my life.
Renounce:                   
I declare to You and to satan to no longer turn to sins for power and comfort.
Break:                          
I ask You to break all spiritual soul ties with others or bonds of satan to sins.
Repent:                        
I commit to turn from these repeated sins in thoughts, emotions and actions.
Thank:                        
Thank You for forgiving my sin and for giving me the strength to change.
Thank:                         
Thank You for breaking all sexual spiritual soul ties in my life.
Obey:                           
I will practice spiritual disciplines of purity, prayer, praise and fellowship.
In the Name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

Step 7 Ancestral sins vs renunciation and breaking generational ties.

The Bible says the effect of sins of ancestors in one generation can be passed to the next:

For I am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love me and keep my commandments. Ex 20:5-6.

The Bible says: Honor your father and your mother. Ex 20:12.
Honor them, but not worship them or their spirits, only worship God.
Admit they have sinned and break any strongholds or spiritual ties satan may have on the family.

                                      Dear Heavenly Father,
Submit:                        
You have said the sins of the fathers are passed to the children.
Recall:                          
Help me remember ways my family has had patterns of sinning.
Protect:                         
Prevent satan from keeping me walking in obedience to break spiritual ties.
Resist:                           
In the name of Jesus I resist satan to continue ancestral sins. Amen.

Ancestral sins can include:                                                      Habitual sins from Step 6
Sins covered in all the steps:                                                    6. Greed
1. Non-Christian and traditional beliefs                                  7. Substances
2. Lies and fears                                                                        8. Control

On a separate piece of paper make a list of ancestral sins then for each sin, pray the prayer below.

                                      Dear Heavenly Father
Confess:                       
I and my ancestors have committed sins from one generation to the next.
Renounce:                  
I declare to You and to satan to break patterns and spiritual strong holds.

Thank You for forgiving my sin and for giving me the strength to change.
Thank:                         
Thank You for breaking all strongholds and spiritual ties with my ancestors.
Obey:                           
I will teach the ways of God and pray for blessings on future generations.
.                                                                                                        I
n the Name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

STATEMENTS OF TRUTH

1. I recognize that there is only one true and living God (Ex 20:2,3) who exists as the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. He is worthy of all honor, praise and glory as the One who made all things and holds all things together (Col 1: 16, 17).

2. I recognize that Jesus Christ is the Messiah, the Word who became flesh and dwelt among us(Jn 1:1,14). I believe that He came to destroy the works of the devil (1 Jn 3:8), and that He disarmed the rulers and authorities and made a public display of them, having triumphed over them (Col 2:15).

3. I believe that God has proven His own love for me because when I was still a sinner, Christ died for me (Ro 5:8). I believe that He has delivered me from the domain of darkness and transferred me to His kingdom, and in Him I have redemption and the forgiveness of sins (Col 1:13,14).

4. I believe that I am now a child of God (1Jn 3:1-3) and that I am seated with Christ in the heavenlies (Eph 2: 6). I believe that I was saved by the grace of God through faith, and that it was a gift and not a result of any works on my part (Eph 2:8,9).

5. I choose to be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might (Eph 6:10). I put no confidence in the flesh (Phil 3:3), for the weapons of warfare are not of the flesh but are divinely powerful for the destruction of strongholds (2Cor 10:4). I put on the full armor of God (Eph 6:10-20). I resolve to stand firm in my faith and resist the evil one.

6. I believe that apart from Christ I can do nothing (Jn 15:5), so I declare my complete dependence on Him. I choose to abide in Christ in order to bear much fruit and glorify my Father (Jn 15:8). I announce to Satan that Jesus is my Lord (1Cor 12:3) and I reject any and all counterfeit gifts or works of Satan in my life.

7. I believe that the Truth will set me free (Jn 8:32) and that Jesus is the Truth (Jn 14:6). If He sets me free, I will be free indeed (Jn 8:36). I recognize that walking in the light is the only path of true fellowship with God and man (1Jn 1:3-7). Therefore, I stand against all of Satans deception by taking every thought captive in obedience to Christ (2Cor 10:5). I declare that the Bible is the only authoritative standard for truth and life (2Tim 3:15-17).

8. I choose to present my body to God as a living and holy sacrifice (Ro 12: 1) and the members of my body as instruments of righteousness to God (Ro 6: 13). I choose to renew my mind by the living Word of God in order that I may prove that the will of God is good, acceptable and perfect (Ro 12: 2). I put off the old self with its evil practices and put on the new self (Col 3:9,10). I declare myself to be a new creation in Christ (2Cor 5:17).

9. By faith, I choose to be filled with the Spirit (Eph 5:18) so that I can be guided into all truth (Jn 16:13). I choose to walk by the Spirit so that I will not carry out the desires of the flesh (Gal 5:16).

10. I renounce all selfish goals and choose the ultimate goal of love (1Tim 1:5). I choose to obey the two greatest commandments: to love the Lord my God with all my heart, soul, mind and strength and to love my neighbor as myself (Deut.6:5, Mat 22:37-39).

11 I believe the Lord Jesus has all authority in heaven and on earth (Mat 28:18) and that He is the head over all rule and authority. I am complete in Him (Col 2:10). I believe that Satan and his demons are subject to me in Christ since I am a member of Christs Body (Eph 1:19-23). Therefore, I obey the command to submit to God and resist the devil (Ja 4:7), and I command Satan in the name of Jesus Christ to leave my presence.
