I want you to know how proud I am of you. You've been reborn and the Lord is your savior. Beware of the unclean spirit that came out of you, he Will return.
The bible says: When an unclean spirit goes out of a man, he goes through dry places seeking rest, and finds none. Then he says, “I will return to the house, from which I came” (your body is the house it's referring to) when he returns though, he finds the house empty, swept and put in order. (This is because you have been made clean through the blood of Jesus) He then decides to go, get seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they come back to the empty house, enter and dwell there. The state of that man is worse that the first.
How do you combat these evil spirits?
It's simple, while the unclean spirit is away:
Open your bible.
Ask God to give you wisdom and understanding.
Start feeding your mind the word of God, by reading the scriptures. (I'll help you with that if you need it).
A good place to start would be the book of John (some say it's the book of love) or another New Testament Book like Romans.
The words written in red ink are extremely important; they are the words of Jesus (pay special attention to all of them- His words are alive).
The bible says while you're reading the scriptures, The Lord will write His words on your heart.
What happens with me, is- when I have a sinful thought, the Lord sends His Holy Spirit to remind me of His words. (Tip: The Holy Spirit can only remind you of God's words if the words are already on your heart).
This is extremely important, because God's word will defeat the evil one every time. You'll need His words securely planted in your heart, for when evil tries to tempt you.
The Holy Spirit will also come to comfort you when you need to be comforted.
Take heart if you find yourself giving in to temptation. The Holy Spirit will also convict you of your sin (i.e. bring your sin to your attention) He does this so you can repent and ask for forgiveness. God loves you as a child and He knows you're not perfect. All children stumble, this is inevitable, it's just part of being human.
My dear, you may also want to get a bible concordance. This book lists every word in the bible. For example: If you want to learn about angels, just open the concordance, look up the word “ angels” and it will show you the scripture location for each occurrence of the word “angels”. This should make it easier for you to learn about a specific topic.
While you're doing this, always remember to read a few paragraphs before and after the actual word to get a good understanding of the context the word is being used.
Let me know if there's anything more you need, and I'll be happy to help. God bless you, may you grow in wisdom and knowledge.
