“Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do.
And they parted his raiment, and cast lots.”
Brothers and Sisters one of the hardest Actions we must do, is to Forgive those who have done wrong to us, whether as a Christian, A Parent, Friends or Co-Workers or as Strangers, We Must Pay The Price Of Forgiveness. I have learned that Forgiveness goes to the Marrow Of The Bone.
Having Un-Forgiveness can cause so many things in one’s Life that I cannot mention all of them in this message. In the flesh it can cause great illnesses to spring up turning into a disease, even destroying the body. It can cause Un-Settling Thoughts that can torment you. It can Steal Away Your Sleep or even cause Nightmares. It can cause Relationships to be torn apart. It has an Effect On The Spirit and Our Relationship With Jesus.
Un-Forgiveness cannot be among us who are Blood Bought. Below I have put the Definition to Un-Forgiveness.
“Definition of unforgiving. 1 : unwilling or unable to forgive. 2 : having or making no allowance for error or weakness an unforgiving environment where false moves can prove fatal”
There is a Heavy Price to Pay for Un-Forgiveness…
“14 For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: 15 But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.”
For us, who Jesus Paid The Price Of Forgiveness For, have a Commandment that we cannot ignore or it could and will cost you your Spiritual Life. Jesus said that if I Choose Not To Forgive, then there is a Price for that Un-Forgiveness, and that is that The Father Will Not Forgive Us, in other words, the Blood Of Jesus that Covers Yours Sins will no longer be so. To do Wrong is Sin in any cause or fashion. Disobeying God is Sin and Disobeying His Word is Sin.
Because of Adam we are Born Into Sin, all because Adam Disobeyed God’s Word, because Adam Did Wrong Against God!
“Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam’s transgression, who is the figure of him that was to come.”
“For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.”
1 Corinthians 15:22
We must understand that if God The Father is willing to Forgive Us because of The Blood of Jesus that was shed for Our Sins, then we must also make the choice to Forgive those who do wrong against us. It is not easy! That is one of the things that Jesus Our Lord had to bare, that is, to Forgive Us Who Are Guilty Of Sin! That we all deserve to die in the Lake Of Fire, but The Father, through His Son Jesus gave us another chance to be His Children. It is Only Through God’s Forgiveness towards us are we able to have the chance to be with Him.
“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life:
no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”
It is only through the Cleansing Of Our Wrong can we enter into Heaven and that Only Through The Blood Of Jesus. We need to also understand that Jesus had the Authority and the Power to Not Go To The Cross, Not To Pay for Your Sins!
“50 And Jesus said unto him, Friend, wherefore art thou come? Then came they, and laid hands on Jesus, and took him. 51 And, behold, one of them which were with Jesus stretched out [his] hand, and drew his sword, and struck a servant of the high priest’s, and smote off his ear. 52 Then said Jesus unto him, Put up again thy sword into his place: for all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword. 53 Thinkest thou that I cannot now pray to my Father, and he shall presently give me more than twelve legions of angels? 54 But how then shall the scriptures be fulfilled, that thus it must be?”
“41 And he was withdrawn from them about a stone’s cast, and kneeled down, and prayed, 42 Saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done. 43 And there appeared an angel unto him from heaven, strengthening him. 44 And being in an agony he prayed more earnestly: and his sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground.”
Jesus, Our Lord, The Christ, Choose to give His Life to Cover Our Sin, to be the Sacrificial Lamb Of God and Jesus did it Willingly! We Must Willingly Forgive those who do wrong against us, especially those of the House Of Faith!
I know it is so hard to Walk in this Commandment. We can weigh the evidence stand and say they did Wrong Against Me, I have The Right…, but Our Rightness is as filthy rags to God!
“But we are all as an unclean [thing], and all our righteousnesses [are] as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.”
Yes, I can say that someone has done Wrong Against me, but, I cannot harbor Un-Forgiveness Towards Them. I Must Choose To Forgive Them and Walk On leaving it in God’s Hands to deal with. There is no amount of Wrong that We Have The Right Not To Forgive!
“21 Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times? 22 Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven.”
We need to Forgive from the smallest of things to the largest of things in this Life. We do not need to carry around our necks a millstones weight or drag heavy chains of burden of Un-Forgiveness around, but through Jesus, should Walk In Forgiveness towards all those who do wrong against us.
As always… Your Choice!
Be Blessed in the Mighty Name of Jesus, Our Lord and Savor!!!
Amen and Amen!!!
