RCCG House Fellowship Leaders Manual 31 July 2022 | Lesson 48

OPENING PRAYER: Father, help me to repent of all my sinful way.

PREVIOUS KNOWLEDGE: Leaders should ask members why believers or Christians get lost over the things of the earth and not focus on God.

MEMORY VERSE: “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment”

BIBLE TEXT: Luke 16:19-31

RCCG House Fellowship Leaders Manual 31 July 2022 | LESSON INTRODUCTION

The English Dictionary describes Repentance as a feeling of pain or sorrow being sincerely affected by a sense of guilt and resolved on amendment. It can simply be said to be a process of making a turn-around from previously existing way of life here on earth. In the text above, it is true that the rich man eventually was remorse and felt guilty but there was no opportunity to make an amendment any longer. The claim of repentance after death is not defended by any part of the Bible, Old or New Testament.

TEXT REVIEW: LUKE 16:19-31
i. Once you are dead you can’t repent anymore.
ii. Repentance can’t take place when you are dead.

LESSON OUTLINES:
THREE STEPS SHOWS THAT REPENTANCE CAN TAKE PLACE ONLY IN LIVING.
1. Conviction through the word of God.

  1. There will be no Bible in Heaven.

  2. The feeling of guilty/remorse.

  3. The physical nature of feeling will have left this this earthy space.

  4. Abandoning/rejecting the sin and embracing a new lease of life.

  5. Like the rich man even when he refreshed for his own on health was turned down.

These three steps if genuine refines only a living soul, the steps can work for all kinds of sinful condition and will really require the physical contribution of the conscience of the individual and not a dead person.

RCCG House Fellowship Leaders Manual 31 July 2022 | Lesson 48

ACTIVITY: Discuss why we find repentance hard to do when we know we are guilty?

SUMMARY: We can die at any time, so we must check ourselves as believers.

RCCG House Fellowship Leaders Manual 31 July 2022 CONCLUSION

Repentance can take place just before you give up the ghost but NEVER when you have died. Hence it is also said that there is hope for a living soul no matter what the level of sin may be, but there cannot be any opportunity when you have died or in the grave as explained in our text today.
