Do you want to be right or Do you want to be in relationship?
Now I want to talk about “forgiveness.” Too many have disregard for each other – little patience, little respect. This is all leading to strife. It leads to discontent, hurt feelings. MY children are selfish. They want to be first in all things. They are very insensitive to the needs of others; they fall short in caring for others. This leads to arguments, anger.
My Children, I want to speak to you about this matter of forgiveness. MY children are unforgiving in their hearts storing up grievances against each other. I cannot forgive those who don’t forgive. Is this clear? How can I forgive you, if you, yourself cannot forgive those around you? Does not MY Word speak of this? Forgiveness is love. Unforgiveness leads to all kinds of sin: bitterness, revenge, wrongful judging, and on and on… It gives a foothold to the enemy to come in and destroy you. This keeps you from closeness, intimacy with ME, your GOD, and keeps you from receiving MY SPIRIT. This is serious.
Matthew 6:14. For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly FATHER will also forgive you. But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your FATHER forgive your trespasses. If you are unforgiving, you cannot be ready for MY Soon Return. This will hold you back. It separates US.
Leave this unforgiveness behind. Forgive each other. Lay down your anger toward each other. What do you gain when you harbor anger toward someone else? You suffer more than the person you are angry with, can you not see this? Is your eternal salvation worth harboring anger toward another?
Mark 11:25. And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your FATHER also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.
You must search your heart and ask this question. What is worth losing your eternal soul over… a petty dispute? Forgive and walk away and feel a dark cloud lift. Even if the other person won’t forgive you, pray for them, yes pray for your enemies. Pray for them with a sincere heart and I will warm your heart to those who harm you. I will give you a heart of flesh.
How can you expect those who do not walk in MY Way and those who do not possess MY HOLY SPIRIT to treat you as if they do? You must render patience, kindness, longsuffering to those who do not know ME. It is impossible for those who do not know ME, truly know ME, to behave as if they do. Can you not see this? You cannot expect this from those who walk apart from ME.
Many of My children have wounds that they carry around in their hearts. Many were inflicted by other people, being insensitive to one another. If someone has done you wrong, you must forgive him in order to break yourself loose from the hurt that binds you and that person. Even though it hurts, just tell Me that you choose to forgive that person. Every time you forgive, you are healed in the wounded area layer by layer. When you think about that person, forgive again, 70 times 7 I say. Then I will heal the wounds of that affliction. There are also darts from the enemy that can wound. The wounds from the enemy I will heal if you call on Me.
When you call on My name I will deliver you. My people, if you forgive one another, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. This My people, is a basic principle. The sooner you forgive someone for an offense, the sooner your healing starts. If you allow unforgiveness to grow, the root becomes bitter. When bitterness grows in you, you cannot enjoy Me, hear Me, and discern Me. Bitterness also causes much of the sickness that is on earth today. When you already have bitterness, ask of Me to remove it. Repent that you have allowed that bitterness, or offense that someone had done unto you, to grow. Then I will heal you. Remove all bitterness and unforgiveness from within your hearts. Forgive! My people, forgive one another!”
The Lord Jesus: This is the condition of My people. Lifeless! Many within My Body have used spiritual abuse to kill My people. Many have blamed Me and still carry much anger, bitterness and unforgiveness towards Me and others. I AM God and I am not effected by people’s anger, bitterness and unforgiveness. But if you hold on to the anger, bitterness and unforgiveness about what others did to you, you allow yourself to die. You are dead to yourself, to others and to Me. Choose to forgive those people and set them free so that your healing can start. When you forgive you become alive again. Because you forgive, I also forgive you and I will heal you.
Forgiveness does not make a wrong right, it just sets you and others free. I will deal righteously with that situation for I AM righteous and I can see people’s hearts and inner most areas. If you choose to forgive, ask Me to also remove bitterness from you, for bitterness is an evil root that can cause much damage.
Forgiveness: The KEY to making your way back to ME. Forgive everyone. There is no unforgiveness worth losing your very soul for. Forgiveness is understanding that knowingly or unknowingly do not know what they are doing. On the cross, I forgave all those who hurt Me, wounded Me, Crucified Me with The love of Father.
Come and lie down all your problems, sin and hopes at My feet. I can give you rest. Come give Me those people who trespass against you. Forgive them and give them to Me. Remove that bitterness from within and give it to Me. I want to give you a clean heart, a heart of flesh. Only I, the Lord, can do it for you. No human can ever heal, deliver or restore you.”
“Let go, so I can be God. Let go of situations that you want to fix. Let go of those you have prayed for whom you want Me to heal. You ask Me for breakthrough in your child’s or loved one’s life. You ask Me to save them and heal them. That is good My children, but after you’ve prayed for them, give them to Me. Don’t hold on to them anymore. I can’t do a thing if you stand between Me and that loved one. Just give them to Me to sort out and then every time you think of that loved one, just thank Me for what I will do. Just praise Me, because I am God.
I already know the end from the beginning. Don’t take that loved one back, every time you think about them. If you have given Me a loved one, or any situation for Me to sort out or take control of, you can know that it is in good hands. Then just trust in Me. Don’t take that burden on yourself. Then turn your focus back to Me and just enjoy Me by eating and drinking Me. Stop worrying about your loved ones if you gave them to Me. I will work with them, for only through My Spirit can they be transformed.”
