Forgiveness – seven times seventy

I want to share this with you.  You are not the only one with difficulty in failing.  We all fail.  It’s when we ache inside ourselves and cry when we sin.  As long as we grow every day in our self-awareness of failure.  If you are in un-forgiveness toward a brother, make right with him and do not delay.  If you are unforgiving about issues, you need to deal with them.  If things in the past are dealt with and the enemy comes to accuse you, don’t take it back.  Forget the past and look forward to what lies ahead.  Rather to keep in prayer the ones who sin.

The Passover is very near, this is an important time to judge yourself.  Pay serious close attention to your transgressions.

1 Corinthians 11:27 – 29  So that whoever should eat this bread or drink this cup of the Master unworthily shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Master.  28  But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread and drink of that cup.  29  For the one who is eating and drinking unworthily, eats and drinks judgment to himself, not discerning the body of the Master.

What if I ask for forgiveness and the person chooses not to forgive me?   Then that un-forgiveness has no more guilt on your part.  All you do is pray for them.  There are some who hate us and we don’t even know about it or them.  Be at peace with that.

Peter asked YaHUShA how often should his brother sin against him.  What a remarkable reply …

Matthew 18:21 – 22  Then Peter came to Him and said, “Master, how often shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him?  Up to seven times?”  22  YaHUShA said to him, “I do not say to you, up to seven times, but up to seventy times seven.

This does not give permission for one to do willful sin.

Proverbs 28:9  He who turns away his ear from hearing the Torah, even his prayer is an abomination.

Lastly I have another scripture, which indicates very clearly what we ought to do before offering a gift at the feet of Abba.

Matthew 5:23 – 24  “If then, you bring your gift to the altar, and there remember that your brother holds whatever against you,  24  leave your gift there before the altar, and go, first make peace with your brother, and then come and offer your gift.

 

Blessings in YaHUShA
