“But your iniquities have separated you from GOD, and that our sins have hidden His face from us that He will not hear.” Is the Scripture contradictory? No, sin separates us from GOD, but not from His love. Our Father loves all souls and wish no one should perish. Sadly, not all souls will be saved as there are consequences for our disobedient to Him.
We should protect the salvation of our soul which Jesus paid with His sacrificial death for the remission of our sins, our sins, our sins! The only Blood that could ensure the saving protection of our salvation through the Plan of Salvation. We must unfriend and block the devil.
We unfriend relationships and block people on various social media platforms to not be bothered or allow our minds to be distracted by ungodliness. In the same manner we must unfriend and block our minds from the devil knowing the eternal cost? Do not let the taste of the forbidden fruit cost you the taste of Heaven. — Tangie T. Woods
Some Christians say it is difficult to flee temptations and/or influences of those who do the bidding of Satan. Yes, I admit in our human nature it is not always easy, but God made a way of escape. However, we sometimes allow our emotions to dictate our reactions to justify reasons to sin.
God never set us up to disobey His commandments when He made it clear that He does not wish anyone to perish. Unfriending Satan with biblical commandments is crucial to follow in the footsteps of Jesus.
Let us not allow the influences of Satan and his demons to separate us from God and lose our Heavenly benefits. For if we sin willfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remains no more sacrifices for sins, but a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries” (Hebrews 10:26-27).
