Should We Forgive and Forget?

Should we forgive and forget? This is a good question. Peter (one of Jesus’s disciples) asked Jesus, “Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times? Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven.” ( Matthew 18:21-22). We should forgive everyone who asks  us too, so we can be forgiven ourselves. Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye? Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye.” ( Matthew 7:1-5).

You don’t have to forgive unless you want to be forgiven. “He that cannot forgive breaks down the bridge that he himself must cross over!” You don’t have to forget unless you want your sins to be forgotten.  To not forgive and forget is like taking in a poison and it can make you physically sick, and can even eventually kill you. It is better off for you personally to forgive and forget. Why carry around such heavy baggage, like a bag of unneeded rocks, or dirty laundry.

The Lord says, He takes away our sins, as far as the East is from the West, and guess what, they never meet. (Psalms 103:12). “and their sins and iniquities will I remember no more.” (Hebrews 10:17).  The devil is the only one that remembers our sins, so he can remind, and condemn us, and accuse us, God forgives and forgets our sins if we ask him. Are you like the Devil who remembers sins, or like God, and Jesus, and The Holy Spirit who forgives and forgets others sins and your own? They do things a lot different in Heaven than we do here on earth. Somethings we have to work on, like being in a happy good place in Heaven, and earth. In fact you can have a little bit of Heaven right now by forgiving and forgetting. We don’t have to work for our Salvation, thank you Jesus, but we do have to work on our rewards and our relationship with Jesus. So if you forgive and also forget you will be pleasing the Lord and helping yourself ! How deep does your love go?  “Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.”(Philippians 3:13)

Say this prayer if you want to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. I believed you died on the cross for my sins and rose from the dead. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen.

TAKE A STAND

This world is not our home. We’re just passing through. The Lord wants us to remember that he is our King of Kings and Lord of Lords, and we belong to his kingdom forever! Jesus’s kingdom is not a physical country yet, but it will be when Jesus comes back to rule and reign for 1000 years upon the earth.( Revelation 21). “Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.”(Colossians 3:2). Sure, were supposed to stand up for things that are of God, and right, and true, and vote, and let our voices be heard, but ultimately in this world and in this country it gets what it wants and deserves. If Christian believers can’t or won’t get out and vote to change things, then they will get what they deserve ! Someday we each will have to stand before the Lord and give account for ourselves. Jesus said “What is that to thee Follow thou me.”(John 21 :22b). “The kingdom of God cometh not with observation: Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.” (Luke 17:20b,21 ).Beloved the Lord is saying to us who are unhappy about the events taking place in this country and in this world “See that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.”(Matthew 24:6b). Lord help us to let these events in this world make us to see more clearly about where we stand as Christians living in this world temporarily. Stand up for Jesus ye soldiers of the cross. Lift high his royal banner it must not suffer loss ! If you don’t stand for something ,you will fall for anything. Do you know what your church or study group stands for on the issues of Eternal Salvation, the Holy Spirit, Witnessing, Faith and Healing, Pre- or Post Tribulation Rapture? If you don’t know where you stand on these issues, then you need to make up your  mind. You can study about all of these issues in this web site. They are covered quite extensively, and laid out for you on a sliver platter. If you haven’t already dived into these truths, that God has so freely given you, then I can’t understand why not? “I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spew thee out of my mouth.”  (Revelation 3:15,16). “Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season, reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lust shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.” (II Timothy 4:2-4). Beloved don’t let these verses be said of you! The hardest words for some to say is ” I was wrong”. It must be really hard on some peoples pride to admit that they have been following false doctrine or a false teacher or prophet, especially  if they have been doing it for a long time. Are you noble in the eyes of the Lord? “These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.” (Acts 17:11). Or do you blindly just take the word of some man or pastor, like some poor weak sheep do, and get mislead into some false doctrine and lies of the devil. Remember the devil sometimes gives you some truths and then sneaks his poison lies in. Jesus said ; “If the light that is in you be darkness, how great is that darkness.”(Matthew 6:23). “And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:” ( II Thessalonians 2: 10,11). Do you contend earnestly for the faith, and for the sheep? “Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.” (Jude 1:3) Or are you going to let the grievous wolves devour the sheep with their unscriptural lies and false doctrines?  “Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood. For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock.” (Acts 20: 28,29) Jesus warned us many times to beware of false prophets and teachers who will come in the end times and deceive many. “For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.” (Matthew 24: 24) “If they speak not according to the word it is because there is no light in them.” (Isaiah 8:20). Beloved this is a very serious matter. Be on guard, for the devil as a roaring lion goeth about seeking whom he may devour. “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: “ (I Peter 5:8) “And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. “ (II Corinthians 11:14). Some of these false teachers look like good old boys or dynamic preachers, don’t be mislead by looks and feelings. The devil can appear to be a real nice and friendly guy, or girl. “He gave them their request but sent leaness to their soul.”(Psalm 106:15 ) What will it take for the devil to buy you out? “And Jesus answered and said unto them, take heed that no man deceive you.” ( Matthew 24:4).

Say this prayer if you want to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. I believe you died on the cross for my sins ,and rose from the dead. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen

THE HIGH CALLING OF GOD

“Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.” ( Philippians 3:13-14). We need to ask the Lord, “Am I doing The High Calling of God In Christ Jesus?” Jesus tried to tell us about this when he said; “For ye have the poor always with you; but me ye have not always.” ( Matthew 26:11). There are many good things you can do, and helping the poor is surely one of them. “Blessed is he that considereth the poor: the LORD will deliver him in time of trouble.” (Psalm 41:1). But is this the most important, most needed job, the highest calling of God for you? The highest calling of God is to obey the Great Commission, which is to; “And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.” (Mark 16:15). What are you doing to obey this High Calling? Why should anyone hear the Gospel twice when some have never heard it once? Let me spell it out for you. Don’t get caught in the quicksand of the devils side tracks. Get focused! There are many good causes that you can get caught up in. Get behind a true move of God that is truly teaching the Word of God (like www.answersintheword.com) and do all you can to help promote getting the Gospel out to the unreached World while you can !! “He must increase, but I must decrease.” (John 3:30). Don’t settle for a little good when you can do better. You are writing your own paycheck with God.

“Reincarnation,” Can you work your way to Heaven?

Billions of people believe that they can work their way to Heaven, and many people believe that when you die, if you were a good person you can go to Heaven, if you are a bad person you will come back as a roach, or a rat, or some other critter. Well the Bible teaches us that once we die then we stand before God to be judged. “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:”(Hebrews 9:27). The Bible also says; “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: not of works, lest any man should boast.” ( Ephesians 2:8-9). Grace is a gift received at Christ expense. The fact is you can never be good enough to go to Heaven. “not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; ” (Titus 3:5).

True Christianity teaches that God is reaching out to man, through his Only Begotten Son Jesus Christ. “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.” (John 3:16). “But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:” (John 1:12). All other religions teach that men and women must reach out to God through their own good works. Jesus loved you so much that he came down to earth to die on the cross for your sins and he rose from the dead. ” that if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” (Romans 10:9-10). “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6).

Was the leader of your religion born of a virgin, lived a life of love, teaching others to love, forgive and have mercy, and heal the sick, give sight to the blind, and even raised the dead? Jesus Christ did all these things and more. He is knocking on the door of your heart, please let him in.

Say this prayer to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. I believe you died on the cross for my sins ,and rose from the dead. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen.

THE LOVE OF JESUS CHRIST

There is no greater LOVE than the LOVE of God and Jesus Christ, and the Holy Ghost who are one in spirit. “Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.”(John 15:13). “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.” (John 3:16). John 3:16 was God’s part and 1John 3:16 is our part. “Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.”(1John 3:16).

Jesus is the ultimate manifestation of the LOVE of God. He left the beautiful Heaven of Heavens to come down here to be born and laid in a manger, and be persecuted , and rejected, and despised, and lied about, and betrayed, and finally crucified for you and me. Don’t ever think that God, and the Holy Spirit, and Jesus don’t LOVE you after they did all that for you. They LOVE you and care about you. Even the hairs of your head are numbered. They made you for a purpose and that purpose is to LOVE GOD, and enjoy his LOVE and creation forever, and help others to do the same. “Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.”(Matthew 22:37-39). “Jesus really loves you and he wants you to know, he will go with you where ever you go.” “Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.”(Hebrews 13:5). He will never leave you when all others do, and you loose everything and are at the bottom look up to Jesus, he is holding out his hand to you to lift you up. “I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me. Riches and honour are with me; yea, durable riches and righteousness. My fruit is better than gold, yea, than fine gold; and my revenue than choice silver. I lead in the way of righteousness, in the midst of the paths of judgment:
that I may cause those that love me to inherit substance;
and I will fill their treasures. (Proverbs 8:17-21).

“I waited patiently for the Lord; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry. He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings.”(Psalms 40:1-2). You can’t know the LOVE of Jesus until you give him your heart. I know the answer to all your problems. You gotta LOVE the Lord Jesus more and more. Jesus is the LOVE of all LOVES. He knows every thought you think and every move you make. He made you and he wants to fix what’s wrong with you, both spiritually and physically. Just put him first in your heart. “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”(Matthew 11:28-30). Just open up your heart and let the SON shine in. Jesus is the answer for the world today. Above him there is no other, Jesus is the way. People need the Lord. The LOVE of Jesus is the best thing that you can have !!!

Say this prayer if you want to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. I believed you died on the cross for my sins and rose from the dead. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen.

Impetuous Peter

I think most all of us can relate to Peter ( Jesus’s Disciple) and some of his impetuous comments and actions. Some of the things he said and did were some what amusing since they hit so close to home because, “We also are men of like passions.”(Acts 14:15).

Impetuous means; saying or acting quickly without thought or consideration. You will see what we mean when you read these verses. Enjoy !

“From that time forth began Jesus to shew unto his disciples, how that he must go unto Jerusalem, and suffer many things of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised again the third day. Then Peter took him, and began to rebuke him, saying, Be it far from thee, Lord: this shall not be unto thee. But he turned, and said unto Peter, Get thee behind me, Satan: thou art an offence unto me: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but those that be of men.”(Matthew 16:21-23). Notice that this happened right after Peter, the only Disciple who said that Jesus was the Christ, the Son of the living God, when Jesus asked them, “who do you say that I am ?”

“And he entered into one of the ships, which was Simon’s, and prayed him that he would thrust out a little from the land. And he sat down, and taught the people out of the ship. Now when he had left speaking, he said unto Simon, Launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught. And Simon answering said unto him, Master, we have toiled all the night, and have taken nothing: nevertheless at thy word I will let down the net. And when they had this done, they inclosed a great multitude of fishes: and their net brake. And they beckoned unto their partners, which were in the other ship, that they should come and help them. And they came, and filled both the ships, so that they began to sink. When Simon Peter saw it, he fell down at Jesus’ knees, saying, Depart from me; for I am a sinful man, O Lord.”(Luke 5:1-8).

Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times? Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven.”(Matthew 18:21-22).

Peter answered and said unto him, Though all men shall be offended because of thee, yet will I never be offended. Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, That this night, before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice. Peter said unto him, Though I should die with thee, yet will I not deny thee.”(Matthew 26:33-35). Maybe if Peter had said, “By your grace Lord I will never deny you”. Then he wouldn’t have had to go through all this to learn his lesson.

“Then Simon Peter having a sword drew it, and smote the high priest’s servant, and cut off his right ear. The servant’s name was Malchus. Then said Jesus unto Peter, Put up thy sword into the sheath: the cup which my Father hath given me, shall I not drink it?”(John 18:10-11).

“Jesus answered and said unto him, What I do thou knowest not now; but thou shalt know here after. Peter saith unto him, Thou shalt never wash my feet. Jesus answered him, If I wash thee not, thou hast no part with me. Simon Peter saith unto him, Lord, not my feet only, but also my hands and my head.”(John 13:7-9).

Say this prayer if you want to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. I believed you died on the cross for my sins and rose from the dead. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen.

The Real World

This world is not our home. We are just passing through on our journey of life to our real everlasting Heavenly world. All the things that you can touch and see and taste are only temporary and won’t last long. We are just a vapor compared to Eternity. “These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth. For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a country. And truly, if they had been mindful of that country from whence they came out, they might have had opportunity to have returned. But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city.” (Hebrews 11:13-16). “while we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.” (2 Corinthians 4:18). “Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.” (Colossians 3:2).

“Their inward thought is, that their houses shall continue for ever, and their dwelling places to all generations;” (Psalms 49:11a). Knowing all this shouldn’t we be preparing more for our Eternal existence? “Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:  but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:” (Matthew 6:19-20). How do we lay up treasures in Heaven ? By winning Souls to Jesus, and helping the Missionaries to win them to Jesus. They will be our brothers and sisters forever in the Kingdom of Heaven. It is hard to find a real Missionary who is teaching the truth. I suggest you hitch your wagon to www.answersintheword.com. and help spread the truth of the Word of God to the World. “For I have not shunned to declare unto you all the counsel of God.”(Acts 20:27). It has taken me 50 years to put the pieces of the puzzle of the Bible together for you by the grace and help and leading of the Holy Spirit, and here it is on a sliver platter for you. You don’t need to re-invent the wheel just start rolling with it. For the time is short. Jesus is coming and it won’t be long ! The Spirit World is real, in fact it is the only real World that counts. “It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.”(John 6:63). “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.”(Ephesians 6:12-13). Be a fighter for Jesus in the Spirit, not a physical fighter in the flesh, (and for what?) If you can receive this then Blessed are you! “whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.”(James 4:14). “And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.” (Matthew 4:19). “And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever will lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it.” (Luke 9:23-24). Will he say unto you, “Well done thou good and faithful servant, enter into the JOY of thy Lord.” Read Matthew 25:21&23.

Say this prayer if you want to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. I believed you died on the cross for my sins and rose from the dead. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen.

PRIORITIES

There are so many good things that we can do everyday, that take up our time, and energies, and money that we are given from the Lord, and are supposed to be good stewards of.Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful.” (1 Corinthians 4:2). Time is one of the most important things that we have. Jesus said: But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” (Matthew 6:33). Sometimes I feel like that rabbit chasing a carrot held up on a string by a stick held by the devil, and I can never catch it. Ever felt that way? The devil’s job is to waste our time and get us tripped off from what God wants us to do. I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.”(Philippians 3:14). Don’t settle for second or third best.The Great Commission is Mark 16:15 which says “Go ye into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature.” Beloved if you are a Christian believer this is your main job and calling in life , and the reason you are here and God doesn’t just take you to heaven as soon as you got saved. Anything else you are doing with your time and what God has given you if it is not for this cause and purpose it is a waste of time and a trip off from the enemy , and if you have children this is your first calling to teach them all about Jesus and the ways of the Lord, then to reach the lost with the Good News of the Gospel. This is your watch make the most of it. The Spiritual war is raging all around us. You may have lost a few battles, but you haven’t lost the war ! “Prepare thy work without, and make it fit for thyself in the field; and afterwards build thine house.” ( Proverbs 24:27).All the things of this life are soon to pass and only what is done for Christ shall last! You are either a Missionary or a Mission field, which are you? Why should anyone hear the Gospel twice when some have never heard it once? Don’t delay. I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.”(John 9:4) Say not ye, There are yet four months, and thencometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest.” (John 4:35).

Say this prayer to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. I believe that you were crucified on the cross and died for all my sins, and rose from the dead. Please forgive me of all my sins. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen.
