Do Not Return To Your Vomit : RCCG House Fellowship 07/03/2021


OPENING PRAYER: Father, please help me not to return to my vomit.
PREVIOUS KNOWLEDGE: The leader should ask the youth in the centre, how many of them have though of legitimate work they will like to engage themselves in?
MEMORY VERSE: As a dog returneth to his vomit, so a fool returneth to his folly. – Proverbs 26:11
BIBLE TEXT: 2 Peter 2:20-22 (KJV)



20 For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning.
21 For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them.
22 But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog has turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire.


In this teaching we shall explain the following three terms:

a. “Do Not” – as used here is a command of a prohibition. Do not do such a thing.
b. “Return” – means to go back; to come/take back to an old place or to an old thing.
c. “Vomit” – is any stomach content disgorged through the mouth.
So literally returning to one’s vomit is simple going back or taking back that which was once rejected, abandoned and forsaken openly and willingly. Spiritually, vomit in all forms of ungodliness, sins, and all ungodly behaviour or activities. Do not return to your vomit to a Christian means: do not go back to your old sinful life.


To enable the members to explain what God means by ‘don’t go back to your vomit.

At the end of the lesson, members should be able to:

i. Explain the terms ‘returning to your vomit’ and ‘do not return to your vomit ‘.
ii. Give some examples of those who did not go back to their vomit and benefits.
i. We are enjoined by the bible text not to return to our sin after being redeemed by the blood of Jesus.

ii. The bible calls such people ‘DOGS’
iii. It is possible that there may not be another chance for repentance.
The leader should use the interactive/discussion method.

Share the teaching time using the suggested time schedule.

Bible Texts
2 Peter 2: 20-22
2Pe 2:20  If people have escaped from the corrupting forces of the world through their knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and then are again caught and conquered by them, such people are in worse condition at the end than they were at the beginning. 
2Pe 2:21  It would have been much better for them never to have known the way of righteousness than to know it and then turn away from the sacred command that was given them. 
2Pe 2:22  What happened to them shows that the proverbs are true: “A dog goes back to what it has vomited” and “A pig that has been washed goes back to roll in the mud.” 
Is 30:3 
Isa 30:3  But the king will be powerless to help them, and Egypt’s protection will end in disaster. 
1 Sam 16:1
1Sa 16:1  The LORD said to Samuel, “How long will you go on grieving over Saul? I have rejected him as king of Israel. But now get some olive oil and go to Bethlehem, to a man named Jesse, because I have chosen one of his sons to be king.” 
How can a believer go back to his/her vomit?
