Regarding Forgiveness

Section 1

12/16/05 From The Lord, Our God and Savior
The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy
For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear

"Therefore hear the Word of The Lord and give heed, for thus declares The Lord: One Commandment broken are all Commandments broken. One sin committed in The Messiah’s name are all sins accounted to you. One sin repented in His name, all are forgiven you. For I know your thoughts, My children, even your innermost intentions, and I know whether or not you are fully converted in your hearts.[1] And though you may lie to yourselves, and bear false witness in the sight of many witnesses, nothing is hidden from the eyes of God - Every lie exposed, every heart laid bare, in the Day I rise up and judge the earth."

8/25/05 From YahuShua HaMashiach, Our God and Savior
The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy
For Timothy, and For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear

"And of your sins? I tell you the truth, they are forgiven. For I died; behold, I am risen. In My own blood were you washed, by My stripes were you healed, even from the beginning. Beloved, all is forgiven you; your sins past, present, and yes, even those of tomorrow. For I know your heart and the love which you have for Me. Therefore make your love perfect by obedience; no more let your flesh rule over you or prevent you by any means. For I know you, Timothy, I have always known you; as you were, as you are, and as you will be, with Me where I am.


And thus I speak to all My beloved,
To all those who have ears to hear:

It is the penitent man who shall know God,
And penitent you must be;
Die to yourselves daily!...

Cast off the skin of this world
And walk with Me as I am,
And not as you would have Me be,
And all that you require shall be given you.


Do you long to obey? Then obey. Do you wish to stay clean? Then stay clean. Doubt is your enemy, doubt is a stone of stumbling at your feet. For I tell you the truth, one whose faith has come to completion, having received the full revelation of who I am, will not sin. For only the face of The Holy One is before their eyes.
Beloved ones, only One is without sin, The Son of Man. Yet the desire to sin is still within you and now also The Truth, and so the battle rages. Therefore, beware. For doubt leads to disobedience, and to disobey God is sin, and the penalty of sin is death. Yet I have overcome death, having written your name in the Book of Life from the very foundation of the world. What is left then? Only the death of sin itself, and the passing away of death.


Beloved, cast off your sins, depart quickly
From temptation, and to the accuser turn a deaf ear;
For I tell you the truth, evil has lost its grip on the redeemed...

Therefore, hear My words and also do them;
Give heed to My speech and embrace all I have given you;
Drink deeply from this cup, and be created anew...

Says The Lord your Redeemer."

11/9/06 From YahuShua HaMashiach, Our Lord and Savior
The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy
For Someone Who Asked if They Can Still Serve The Lord as a Pastor
Even Though They Are Homosexual, and For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear

"Thus says The Lord to His servant, whom He loves: You seek Me, and this is very good. Yet if you wish to please Me, then you must first become My disciple, a devoted servant who walks in My ways.

My son, I have not forsaken you. If you ask of Me forgiveness, I shall surely forgive you, even for all you have done. Yet to continue in those same sins, for which you had sought forgiveness, is most unpleasant in My sight. For by doing so, you have made My forgiveness of no effect. For that which requires forgiveness is the very same from which you must depart, lest your repentance become unrepentance, crucifying Me again and again in your heart.


For repentance is more than the asking...

It must come from a deep desire to be set free
In My love, followed by a sincere unyielding
Commitment to make our love perfect
Through your obedience...

The shedding of the skin of this world,
The crucifying of your old man with his sinful ways...

The putting on of the new man who is
Renewed in the knowledge of The Holy One,
Conforming to the image of Him who created him...

Says The Lord."

~

"Yet if one comes to Me and asks of Me forgiveness, even a continual washing in My own blood, he shall surely have it; even if he comes to Me seven times, or seventy times seven times, he shall be forgiven. For I forgive all those who come to Me in sincerity and in truth, and draw near to those of a contrite heart, delivering those of a humble spirit."

2/6/07 From YahuShua HaMashiach, Our Lord and Savior
The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy
For a Brother in Christ, and For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear

"My son, I died for the forgiveness of your sins - those of today, yesterday, and those sins of tomorrow. Yet man does continually stumble over his flesh, being tempted in a world filled with sin. And so he must continually come to Me, and even seventy times seven times shall I cleanse him and lift him up."


Excerpt from: Born Again




8/14/06 From The Lord, Our God and Savior
The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy
For Timothy, and For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear

"Thus says The Lord to His servant: Timothy, your sins are forgiven you; today’s, yesterday’s, and yes, even those sins of tomorrow are forgiven those of a sincere and penitent heart. For by the blood of My Only Begotten Son are you made clean; by His shed blood are you made worthy, by His suffering are you purged and by His stripes are you healed. Therefore one who asks anything in The Messiah’s name, in accordance with My will, shall surely have it, starting with the forgiveness of sins."

~

"There is none righteous, no, not one,
Save He who alone is holy and blameless,
The Lamb of God...

For by Him alone are you made perfect,
By Him alone are your sins washed away
And remembered no more...

Says The Lord."

Section 2

1/31/06 From The Lord, Our God and Savior
The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy
For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear

"Yet I am not without mercy, for My promises stand and My Holy Covenant endures forever. Therefore, when one comes to Me in the name of The Son, in sincerity and in truth, they are forgiven, even forever and ever. Amen. For I said, “Let there be a Lamb without spot or blemish, sacrificed for the atonement of sin,” and so it was, “And let The Lamb be The Son of God, The Holy One of Israel, in whom all the nations of the earth shall be blessed,” and so it is, forever and ever! Sing halleluYah! Let My people cry out, “God is with us!”"

A Pillar of Strength


My forgiveness runs far and wide, entering deep into the hearts of those who come to Me in sincere repentance. Yet many of My sheep believe themselves to be above reproach, and in this do they greatly err.
Therefore let all My beloved grow wise in Me, and learn also to walk in My ways... For I am a pillar of strength to those of low degree! I uphold the powerless and steady the weary, as I renew the hearts of My elect!


Behold, I fill all those who come
To Me empty with spirit and grace,
As they walk with Me
Into everlasting life!...

Indeed, they shall experience
Life in abundance, forevermore!...

Life of such a kind, which is
Only found in Me and I am!...

Says The Lord.


From: A Pillar of Strength




God Is Sovereign


God is sovereign, His judgment stands...

Therefore, let the penitent be rewarded equally
To their forgiveness, which is equal...

And let all evil unrepented be punished
In accordance with evil’s deeds,
The final penalty of which
Has remained equal even to this day...

The Lord does not change.

Reconciliation in Marriage


An unyielding heart sows discord in marriage,
And stubbornness shuts the door to reconciliation...

Yet the one who is first to say,
“I’m sorry” is wise, defusing any argument;
And the one who is quick to forgive
Heals the breach.


From: Reconciliation in Marriage




Blessed Are Those Who Worship Me


Blessed are all those who raise their voices
To Heaven and give Me perfect praise;
Blessed are those who offer up thanksgiving,
Without ceasing, in My Holy name...

I shall be their God,
And they shall be My people.

Yet even more blessed are those
Who bow down and kiss the feet of My Son;
Their sins are forgiven them...

For those who embrace The Son of God
Have touched The Kingdom of Heaven...

Everlasting life is their reward,
Dwelling in union with
The Messiah, forever.


From: Blessed Are Those Who Worship Me




Blessed Are Those Who Overcome


Blessed are those who do not return
Evil for evil, or reviling for reviling,
But rather pray for their enemies...

Blessed are those who hold no ill-will
In their heart toward another...

Indeed, blessed are all those who forgive
Everyone who has sinned against them,
For great shall be their reward in Heaven.
