Isaiah 43:25 New International Version (NIV)
25 “I, even I, am he who blots out
your transgressions, for my own sake,
and remembers your sins no more.
Once we have been forgiven by GOD we are truly forgiven. God erases what we have done from His memory. He remembers it no more. You are guilt and sin free with Him now. Don’t you wish our relationships with people were like this? People are always rehashing things and bringing things back up that has been long forgotten. Why is it that people can not forgive? Is it because they want vengeance? Is it because they’re envious? Truly I believe it is a combinations of reasons but GOD has asked us to forgive those who have wronged us.
Matthew 6:14-15 New International Version (NIV)
14 For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. 15 But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.
If we want forgiveness than we have to give forgiveness. If God is willing to forgive us, than we must be willing to forgive other people. If we do not forgive, than God will not forgive us.
Mark 11:25 New International Version (NIV)
25 And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive them, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins.”
Matthew 26:27-28 New International Version (NIV)
27 Then he took a cup, and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them, saying, “Drink from it, all of you. 28 This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.
God willingly died for us to release us from the bondage of sin. We should never question whether the Lord loves us. We should know this fully and completely. No one dies for people He hates.
The crowds who were saying “Blessed is He who cometh in the name of the Lord” (Matthew 21:9) are now screaming “crucify Him!!!!!” (Matthew 27:22) and nailed Him to the cross. What was Jesus reply? How did He respond to this? “Father forgive them for they know not what they do” (Luke 23:34). They were under the influence of the devil and their behavior proved this. Jesus knew this and chose to show the people compassion while He was on the cross. How many of us today could have asked God to forgive people who were physically hurting us? Our basic impulse would be to pray, “Lord hurt them as they have hurt me, let them feel pain also”. GOD asks his people to think differently from the world. Jesus shows us on the cross how to react to those who have hurt us, pray for them, they do not realize what they are doing.
Matthew 5:44 King James Version (KJV)
44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
Romans 12:14 King James Version (KJV)
14 Bless them which persecute you: bless, and curse not.
1 Peter 3:9 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)
9 not paying back evil for evil or insult for insult but, on the contrary, giving a blessing, since you were called for this, so that you can inherit a blessing.
Amen!!!! God’s Awesome Forgiveness
1 Peter 4:4 New International Version (NIV)
4 They are surprised that you do not join them in their reckless, wild living, and they heap abuse on you.
God’s children are not a part of this world. If we were we would be accepted in all arenas of life but it is good that we are not accepted in certain social settings. It is good when people see us coming and they get up and leave because they do not want to be around us. They are not rejecting us but GOD (Yahweh) in whom we serve. Do not worry or be concerned about what they say. As a matter of fact if we are living a holy and godly life than we should expect this. It’s good to be talked about for our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. It is an honor because this means we are living correctly. We are living a life that is pleasing to God which is what we desire. God spoke good things about his Son Jesus.
Matthew 3:16-17 Christian Standard Bible (CSB)
16 When Jesus was baptized, he went up immediately from the water. The heavens suddenly opened for him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and coming down on him. 17 And a voice from heaven said: “This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well-pleased.”
Jesus was baptized to fulfill all righteousness. He did not need baptism, He was and is the Son of God. He did this as an example to the people of what to do. Jesus leads by example. It is not always listen to what I say but also do what I do.
Those who truly belong to Christ always want to do things that are pleasing to Father God. They want God to speak good about them.
Luke 10:16 King James Version (KJV)
16 He that heareth you heareth me; and he that despiseth you despiseth me; and he that despiseth me despiseth him that sent me.
Followers of Christ will not be accepted by all people. We may become the object of revilers. These are people who speak abusively to us; calling us names, using harsh and abusive language, criticizing severely and expressing strong disapproval of us. Be ready church. Do not be surprised if this happens to you. Many people are angry and believes these lies about the gospel being hate speech instead of GOD’s love. The bible says God is love (1 John 4:8). Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God (1 John 4:7). God helps us to love those who do not love us.
1 John 4:19 New International Version (NIV)
19 We love because he first loved us.
When we were out doing our own thing, GOD did not give up on us. He loved us in spite of ourselves. He constantly pursued us because He loved us and wanted us with Him. He let us know that we were loved and that we needed HIM for salvation. GOD wants us to do the same thing. Let the people know God loves them and that they need Jesus for their salvation. The god of this world has blinded their eyes and they do not realize this.
2 Corinthians 4:4 King James Version (KJV)
4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
Matthew 5:43-46 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)
43 “You have heard that it was said, Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.44 But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you,45 so that you may be sons of your Father in heaven. For He causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. 46 For if you love those who love you, what reward will you have? Don’t even the tax collectors do the same?
Matthew 5:11-12 Christian Standard Bible (CSB)
11 “You are blessed when they insult you and persecute you and falsely say every kind of evil against you because of me. 12 Be glad and rejoice, because your reward is great in heaven. For that is how they persecuted the prophets who were before you.
If it were not for God Yahweh we would not even be living right now. God gives life and God can take our life whenever He gets ready. Our life is nothing but a vapor.
James 4:14 Christian Standard Bible (CSB)
14 Yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring—what your life will be! For you are like vapor that appears for a little while, then vanishes.
We are here today but could be gone tomorrow. If your life would to suddenly end, where will you end up? If you have accepted the Lord as your Savior; confessed with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and believed in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved (Romans 10:9); heaven is where you will find yourself. If you have not received the Lord as your Savior and not confessed with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and not believed in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead; hell is where you will find yourself.
People do not want to hear the truth today. They would rather hear a bunch of lies that Jesus is not real, there is no heaven or hell. Well people this is not so. Jesus is real, there is a heaven and there is a hell.
Repent!!!! Turn from wickedness today!!!!! Believe in Jesus and be saved from the wrath of God to come!!!!!!! This is true people!!!!!!!
Matthew 4:17 New International Version (NIV)
17 From that time on Jesus began to preach, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven has come near.”
Luke 24:46-48 King James Version (KJV)
46 And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behooved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day:
47 And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.
48 And ye are witnesses of these things.
Matthew 3:8 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)
8 Therefore produce fruit consistent with repentance.
Those who do not receive Jesus words will be judged at the last day.
John 12:48 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)
48 The one who rejects Me and doesn’t accept My sayings has this as his judge: The word I have spoken will judge him on the last day.
While there is breath in our body we need to receive and accept Jesus as Lord today. Receive Jesus and receive life forever with God. Amen!!!!!!
Hello people. How are you today? People do we realize that GOD wants the best for us. GOD loves us immensely. HE wants to see His children living free from the oppression this world offers us. That’s right!!!! I said it, oppression, that is all this world has to offer. The world wants to make us slaves to it but God sent His Son into the world to release us from the bondages of Satan. He will use past hurts to make us bitter and angry at everyone. Everyone is not our enemy. Everyone is not out to get us or hurt us. This is the mindset of people who have not learned to forgive and put past hurts in the hand of God.
The Lord says “Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.” (Romans 12:19). God wants us to love everybody including our enemy.
Luke 6:27-28 New International Version (NIV)
27 “But to you who are listening I say: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, 28 bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you.
God wants us to this to win our enemy over to GOD. This person who has hurt you is not your enemy; Satan is our enemy and GOD took care of Him when Jesus died on the cross. He only has but a short while then he will be thrown into hell.
Revelation 12:11-12 Good News Translation (GNT)
11 They won the victory over him by the blood of the Lamb and by the truth which they proclaimed; and they were willing to give up their lives and die. 12 And so be glad, you heavens, and all you that live there! But how terrible for the earth and the sea! For the Devil has come down to you, and he is filled with rage, because he knows that he has only a little time left.”
He wants to try and take as many as he can with him to hell. Don’t be fooled by him. It was never God’s intention for people to go to hell, only satan. It was and is His intention today for us to make Heaven our home. Jesus is the entryway. Receive God’s Son Jesus and receive eternal life. Experience a life that is more fulfilling because GOD is in it. Experience working for the Savior to bring others to Him. Experience God’s love, grace and mercy. We may be loved by people on this earth but there is no greater love than that of the LORD AND SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST. There may be some people who put you down and talk bad about you because you love JESUS but don’t worry about them and do not fear them. Keep on living your life for the LORD. We belong to the LORD. This world is not our home. We have a home not built by hands.
2 Corinthians 5:1 Good News Translation (GNT)
5 For we know that when this tent we live in—our body here on earth—is torn down, God will have a house in heaven for us to live in, a home he himself has made, which will last forever.
It doesn’t matter what you may have done. Jesus Christ loves you and wants you to come home with Him. Repent and give your life to the LORD today. He is waiting patiently for you. Come to Him today!!!!!! AMEN!!!!!!!!
God loves us very much. I do not think people realize the depth of God’s love.
Ephesians 3:18 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)
18 may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the length and width, height and depth of God’s love,
I can be hard to comprehend sometimes. GOD loved us before we were ever born.
Jeremiah 1:5 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)
5 I chose you before I formed you in the womb;
I set you apart before you were born
Before we were a speck in our mothers womb; GOD loved us and set us apart to be HIS. We did not choose HIM but HE chose us. While we were yet sinners GOD still loved us. HE endured and was patient until we realized we needed HIM. As a result HE has given us a place in heaven when we die.
John 14:1-3 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)
14 “Your heart must not be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in Me. 2 In My Father’s house are many dwelling places; if not, I would have told you. I am going away to prepare a place for you. 3 If I go away and prepare a place for you, I will come back and receive you to Myself, so that where I am you may be also.
Believe this today. Believe what GOD has told us through HIS WORD and believe HIS SON Jesus. This is all it takes. If we believe in our heart and confess with our mouth that GOD raised Jesus from the dead we are saved.
Romans 10:9 Christian Standard Bible (CSB)
9 If you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
GOD has given us salvation through His Son Jesus. There are still some of us that need to come to this realization. GOD is patiently waiting for what HE created to repent of sin and come to the love HE has waiting for them. HE so desires to have fellowship with us. HE longs for us to call out, to cry out to HIM.
Psalm 18:6 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)
6 I called to the Lord in my distress,
and I cried to my God for help.
From His temple He heard my voice,
and my cry to Him reached His ears.
Psalm 77:1 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)
1 I cry aloud to God,
aloud to God, and He will hear me.
GOD loves us so much HE sent HIS only begotten Son Jesus to the earth with the message of love. He taught this by mouth and actions. He told us He loved us and then He showed us He loves us by all the miracles He did. We should never doubt GOD love for us.
1 John 4:8 New International Version (NIV)
8 Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.
GOD has a love that never ends or stops for HIS church. This is why the church loves because we are to resemble our Father in heaven. We are to make HIM known on the earth by our words and our actions so that people will know what it like to be loved by GOD. GOD wants us with HIM today. Receive Jesus as Lord and Savior of your life and experience GOD’s never ending love. Amen!!!!!!!!!
