The power that heals: FORGIVENESS

Apostle Tracey Robinson 

St Matthew 6:14-15

14 For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: 15 But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

If we could find it in our hearts to forgive those who have caused us hurt, injury, and much pain, then God can raise us up to the level in Him that pleases Him for His Purpose.

  • Forgiveness is an emotional freedom from within. It releases you from your Will and the devils boundaries of revenge.
  • Revenge is not the answer to the hurt.
  • Revenge won’t solve the problem.
  • Revenge only binds you up.
  • Revenge belongs to the Lord and He will repay.Romans 12:19-2120 Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head. 
  • 21 Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.
  • 19 Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine, I will repay, saith the Lord.
  • Forgiveness allows us to release the desires to punish the person that hurt you.
  • Forgiveness is a power ONLY given by God and from God. You cannot forgive without the Lord Jesus.
  • Forgiveness is in the Name of Jesus. So how can you say you got that name, but full of unforgiveness toward anyone?
  • Forgiveness is an action word. You must make an effort to humble yourself to give forgiveness.God’s forgiveness to the world is found in St John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
  • His forgiveness is individually and corporately.
  • The only therapist needed to aid you in forgiveness is Dr. Jesus Christ.
  • Forgiveness lets you move forward in the Call of God with His Purpose.
  • Forgiveness is a healing power that will heal from within.
  • Forgiveness is the key to the fruit of the Spirit being activated in you.
  • Hurt and anger promote unforgiveness, but forgiveness will liberate you so that these feelings will have to die.
  • Challenges in life bring in unforgiveness.
  • Choices that we’ve made and are still making bring in unforgiveness.
  • Trying to suppress or bury your negative emotions that fuel your unforgiveness does not work and will not work. You must get delivered from unforgiveness!
  • Your success in anything you do is limited with unforgiveness working in you.
  • The healing power of forgiveness will bring in a change that will transform you inwardly and cause you to walk as Jesus Christ did in the statutes of the Lord God.
  • Forgiveness is the key to God’s giving, His blessings, and His miracles, with all His promises to you.     How many can say truly that I am doing ALL of what God has spoken to me, without an agenda for self? Why is that?            It is because our hearts are still in need of being totally circumcised to do the Will of God. Deuteronomy 10:16 (KJV) Circumcise therefore the foreskin of your heart, and be no more stiffnecked. Stiffnecked means not yielding; stubborn; obstinate Deuteronomy 10:16 (Amplified) So circumcise the foreskin of your [minds and ] your hearts; be no longer stubborned and hardened. Deuteronomy 30:6 (KJV) And the Lord thy God will circumcise thine heart, and the heart of thy seed, to love the Lord thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, that thou mayest live. Only God can cause us to love Him. There are a lot of believer’s that really don’t love God. They have a lot of lip service going on to please men. Their love is conditional, whereas He has loved us unconditionally. Deuteronomy 30:6 (Amplified) And the Lord your God will circumcise your hearts and the hearts of your descendants, to love the Lord your God with all your [mind and] heart and with all your being, that you may live. We are in a time now to breakthrough our barriers so we can move forward into the perfect Will of God. Get out of His Permissive Will!   
  • This is the year of “no excuses” in the Will of God. This is the year to move into the plan and purpose of God on this Earth, according to His Will; not man’s Will, not tradition, not rituals and customs, not a form of godliness, etc.
  •  How many of us can truly say that I am doing ALL of what God has spoken to me, ALL of what He has showed me, and ALL that He has strengthen me to do? How many?
  • Let’s face it we are a slow people in doing the Will of God. We question, reason, and justify too much of the Word of God and His Will for us against our Will, individually and corporately. We are still habitually caught up in the phases of doing the comfortable parts of what God Will, in order to accommodate the need and desires that we have for family and self, which is not pleasing God.
  • But with a circumcised heart, one that has been purified from sin, transgression, and iniquity; one that has been cleansed spiritually for the use of the Father, His Son, and His Will; then we will be able to move forward to obtain the “fullness” of what God has need of us for.
  • An uncircumcised heart means that we are trying to live straddling the fence wearing too many outfits (i.e. personalities, behavior, character, etc.). We have the tendency to change our attire everywhere we go. This is called a form and a fashion. Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today, and forever. He changes not, but we are changing too much to fit the need of others, our comfort, our circumstances, etc.
  • Truthfully, there is a lot that we have obtained in wisdom, knowledge, and understanding of God’s Word, His Will, His Plans and Purpose for us; but some of us are trying to perform this act of forgiveness with an uncircumcised heart.
  • Your heart has a foreskin, which means the prepuce. The prepuce is the “loose skin” that covers the glans of the penis.Well, with your heart there is “loose skin” formed and hardened around it from the sin that you dwelled in before salvation; along with that we have tried to keep from surrendering to the Will of God as a new creature.This is why we will never be able to say that we have arrived yet, because every level that the Lord takes us requires another level of surrendering your Will to His Will.  27 And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them.An uncircumcised heart is a heart of stone that need to be replaced with a heart of flesh.An uncircumcised heart is one that pretends with God and try to deceive His people. Just as that foreskin has hidden the head of the penis, the foreskin around the heart will hardened the true heart toward the Will of God, His Purpose, and His People.An uncircumcised heart will keep you compromising, always making concessions with your lukewarm and unsaved family members and friends.An uncircumcised heart likes to justify and reason as to why it say and does what it do with no repentance or remorse for its actions.An uncircumcised heart can’t worship God in spirit and in truth, because it will be exposed. Jesus said that “light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil; and that everyone that does evil hates the light, unless his deeds should be reproved (to rebuke; to express disapproval)” (St John 3:19-20).   Let’s yield our hearts by being willing and obedient; and watch God create in you the heart He desires in us, not what we want to give to Him.              God really do know what He is doing!Don’t give God a hard time when He comes to circumcise your heart to remove the entire foreskin that has grown around it. It is that foreskin that keeps us from forgiving and forgetting; perceiving the Word of God; and enabling us to do the Will of God’s Word.Be one that will vow in the heart to say to God, “I want to fulfill all that you have purposed for me to do” according to Your Will and not my Will. You don’t have a purpose. It is God’s Purpose!Because we all come when called by the Lord, we are as a beautiful package sealed with hidden damages, thinking that because we look good on the outside we are okay on the inside.But the heart need to be circumcised. When we get circumcised, then God can create in us a clean heart and a right spirit toward Him.
