I Now Forgive You!

I Now Forgive You!

We need to make peace in our heart with everyone who has ever hurt us and get that cleared up before God. We need to forgive our father and mother and all other family or friends for what they did or did not do for us in our life. And we must become aware of our need to forgive our self.  We cannot come to a place of peace as long as we are holding grudges against our self. No one is benefiting from this; to the contrary, we are hurting our families and friends. It is amazing to me how difficult it is for people to forgive themselves. They...

Part 3: What Is Heart-Based Forgiveness?

In heart-based forgiveness, some type of spiritual event usually takes place in the heart of the wounded person that empowers them to release an offender from their debt. We will know when we have truly released someone from their trespass when we think of it and feel only a rush of joy and love. Blog #22 listed 14 aspects of forgiving from the heart. Here I’ll discuss the last seven aspects. 8. Agree to live with consequences of transgressor’s sin In forgiving offenders, we are agreeing to live with the consequences of their sins. This...

Part 2: What Is Heart-Based Forgiveness?

To forgive our offenders their debt, usually requires some type of groundwork must take place. Our negative emotions (resentment, anger, revenge) must become available to us. These destructive feelings do us great harm, actually holding us in bondage to the past. Negative emotions will continue to rob us of our God-given creative energy that enables us to live life more creatively and fully. Until we forgive our offenders, our energy will be tied up with them. Blog #22 listed 14 aspects of forgiving from the heart. Here I’ll discuss the next...

Part 1: What Is Heart-Based forgiveness?

Forgiveness is key to experiencing more peace and joy in our lives. The parable of the unforgiving servant helps us to more fully understand the process of forgiveness (see Matt. 18:21-35). I suggest you read this parable in its entirety. Jesus tells about a king’s slave who was forgiven his substantial debt by the king, but refused to forgive another man who owed him a small amount of money. This angered the king, who handed the slave over to torturers. Jesus warns that a similar fate can befall anyone who refuses to forgive others from the...

Forgiveness Is Not Reconciliation!

Forgiveness Is Not Reconciliation!

Many people have the mistaken idea that forgiveness is the same as reconciliation. This is far from the truth. Forgiveness and reconciliation are two very separate actions. Forgiveness has to do with the removal or release of a debt; reconciliation has to do with restoring friendship or harmony between two people, i.e., repairing a broken relationship. Thoughts by professional counselors Reconciliation is the offender’s responsibility and occurs when the offender recognizes his or her wrong and takes actions to correct the offending behavior...

Ten Misbeliefs About Forgiveness

Posted by on Jun 14, 2016 in Dreams-Visions, Forgiveness | 0 comments

Christians hold many commonly held misconceptions about forgiveness. Here are ten “nots” about forgiveness: 1. Forgiveness does not depend upon the offender Forgiveness does not depend upon your offender wanting or asking for it. It does not depend upon whether they are sorry or not. It involves only our cutting off the debt (Gr. aphiemi) that their offense created. If we forgive our offender their indebtedness, whether they want it or not, we will not hold them accountable to pay for what they did. 2. Forgiveness is not something we do for...

Definition of “Forgiveness”

Definition of “Forgiveness”

When someone unjustly offends us, a debt has been created, an account opened; we hold the offender as responsible. But Jesus expects us to resolve that debt created by them before we come to him and pray. He says we can do this through forgiveness! Forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors (Matthew 6:12). Whenever you stand praying, forgive, if you have anything against anyone (Mark 11:26). Very few Christians really have a depth of inner reality concerning forgiveness, let alone know how to help others find healing and...

A Vision of the Cross

A Vision of the Cross

When it comes to forgiveness, we need to understand the work of Jesus Christ on the cross. Although everything Jesus did for us is factual, unless we have revelation of it in our heart, it will not be real to us. If we want to fully benefit from what happened on the cross, we must see it and know it in our heart as well as in our mind. A vision of the cross Here is a vivid account of a friend’s (Ralph Nault) encounter with the cross as he told it to me and I recorded it. I’m standing out in the middle of a violent storm; it’s pitch...

Do You Reject the Blood of Jesus?

Do You Reject the Blood of Jesus?

You can forgive others. You can let go of that list of grievances you are holding on to—if you accept the blood of Jesus as enough for the wrongs committed against you. Or would you rather stay angry, close your heart, go after the people who hurt you, and make them pay for what they did? Unforgiveness carries a high cost. The sacrificial blood of Christ was given so we can resolve the debts created by the wrongs committed against us.  His blood alone has the power to set us free from our deep-seated resentments, smoldering anger, and...

Blood of Jesus Heals Tormenting Pictures

Traumas often leave negative pictures in our minds, often tormenting us for many years. Perhaps the neurons of the brain get stuck at the point of shock, and our brains won’t let us move on. Or perhaps a demonic spirit fastened itself to us in the moment of the trauma. Either way, Jesus Christ offers us His blood as a way to heal these pictures. Chalice of blood frees me Years ago I experienced the power of the blood of Jesus in a dramatic way. After discovering some porn pictures under a bed, I couldn’t erase them from my mind. I went to...
