Nr. 135: Forgiveness secret necessity and greatness!

Nr. 135:

Forgiveness secret necessity and greatness!

Matt. 6. 12. Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive our debtors.

2 Genesis 34:7 he keeps mercy against thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, but he does not let the guilty go unpunished, he haunts fathers iniquity of the children and grandchildren of those in the third and fourth generations.

Psalm 32:1 By David, a teaching psalm. Blessed is he whose transgression is left, if sin is hidden.

Psalm 130:4 For with thee is forgiveness, that you have feared.

Matthew 9:2 And, behold, they brought to him a man who was verkbrudden, and lying on a bed: and Jesus seeing their faith said unto the verkbrudne: Take heart, son! your sins are you left.

Matthew 6:33 p.m. should not you have mercy of your fellow servant, even as I myself took pity on thee?

26:28 For this is my blood of the new covenant blood, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.

Luke 13:4 Or those eighteen on whom the tower in Siloam fell and killed them, think ye that they were sinners above all men that dwelt in Jerusalem?

Ephesians 1:7 in whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to his grace, wealth,

1 John 1:7 But if we walk in the light as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.

Forgiveness and repentance essence of Christian life

Luke 24 47. and that his name should be repentance and forgiveness of sins proclaimed to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.

In Jesus' name, both repentance and forgiveness of sins proclaimed, in no other name but the name dear friend to me and you get to receive forgiveness from our sins and repent from them and the sins we confess.

What is it to be forgiven?

We can not confess our sins but also to repent from them. Pastor Hanvold himself says that he is to blame for his many ektesakpsbrudd, then teaches writing that either he should reconcile himself with his first wife or living single. He starts a new relationship that he has been engaged in adultery, he teaches writing, finished work.

This was an example of when the conversion has not been followed by confession, it has zero value in God and in the spiritual area.

Forgiveness is important in all areas of life

In our marriage is forgiveness a key factor that we will soon celebrate the silver wedding! But there are "rules" in our home, such as that we never make important decisions until we have asked each other about it. Switch one the "internal" rules, then one should also ask for forgiveness to restore trust between each other!

Forgiveness will also give to others

It is important to be able to even ask for forgiveness. Jesus said we should forgive as we have been forgiven. I have experienced it several times that the brothers and sisters have done me wrong, there has been a while. In fact, sometimes up to several years, so has he asked for forgiveness and I gave the person the forgiveness of sins. It is wonderful and important.

Joh. 20. 23. If I leave some of their sins, then they abandoned them, and if I affirm it for anyone, when they are retained.

Let me mention two examples of people I have bestowed the forgiveness of sins, and not fasholdt them.

1) I first moved here in Oslo in 1987, so I moved in with someone I knew from before, among others. a. through the Bible School in Smyrna at Våle / Tønsberg. I had gotten my driver's job in Philadelphia publishing house and was dependent on the residence. But when they believed that the church was through the great tribulation and I said I did not share that view, I was thrown out of hours with no place to stay even though we had an agreement that I would stay there until I found my own place. This was for me only a matter of biblical understanding but for those deadly serious. It took almost 15 years before he asked for forgiveness and I forgave him, of course.

2) When I was new on the road after I came home to Kamøy after Bible school, I had the ca. 4 years with 2 brothers to do that had been saved along with me. Suddenly they could not bring myself to do when I did not agree with them that a person who gave himself out to be a Bible teacher but did not think I had spilled flour in the bag that he could have trusted. They broke all contact with me about the day and I received a letter about this and that. I could not do anything about this, just had to put on hold. Approximately 15 years later asked one brother for forgiveness and although we have not had as much to do with each, so I gave him the forgiveness of sins.

Psychopaths and others will abuse this

It is of course the abuse of this where one believes that one can profess it all out etc. Starting listed with Jan Hanvold. But in a normal and good family, church and etc. There need one and one should ask each other forgiveness.

We must not let the forgiveness be a "pretext"

Joh. e. 8 1 But Jesus went to the Mount of Olives. 2 And early in the morning he came again to the temple, and all the people came to him, and he sat down and taught them. 3 Then the scribes and Pharisees with the woman caught in adultery, and they took her back to him 4 and said to him: Master, this woman is caught in the act of adultery. 5 In the Law Moses wrote to us that such should be stoned: but what say you now? 6 This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus bent down and wrote with his finger on the earth. 7 And when they went on to ask him, he sat up and said: The one of you is without sin, he cast the first stone at her! 8 And he bowed himself down again and wrote on the ground. 9 But when they heard this, they went out, one after the other, the eldest, and Jesus was left alone with the woman standing there. 10 When Jesus got up and said to her: Woman! where are they? Has no one condemned you? 11 She said, No, Lord! no. Jesus said, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more!

Notice the essence of what Jesus said and taught after she had been forgiven, "Jesus said, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more".

Go to sin no more. For a psychopath, and others need a fact to get treatment for his mental illness, but for most other need to be aware of the seriousness of doing sin, repent and strive for not doing the same again.

Abuse of forgiveness, we must expect

There are always those who will abuse the sacred and precious. For example by saying that you are not a Christian when you do so or so, etc. This I have experienced many times. Yet this is a must and very important in Christian life that we are both self-forgiveness when we need it and even bestows the second forgiveness when they need it and ask for forgiveness and forgive me!

Power People find it hard to ask for forgiveness

Power Men vertices and other with a damaged mental life is difficult to ask for forgiveness. It is a pity on them and actually very many believers burden received help here. But for most people who have a damaged mental life and works "normally". So one must learn to ask both the second and even receive forgiveness, this is basic common and proper. At the same time to be grateful, considerate and full of goodness, then we have Jesus' mind and his servants and tjenerinnere through everything!

Sick people will blame other

I have experienced several times that sick people give others blame for their own mistakes. Here could I have given many examples. Taking this eksmplet finally to show this with forgiveness can be misused.

1) There were two spiritual brothers and sisters who went on a date together where they came away from each other that the one came in contact with someone who wondered he 40-50000 and what he did then? He gave the other to blame for this and blamed the other for their own mistakes, this is abuse when he was the person to ask for forgiveness. Then you need one help with their mental illness, not to accuse others!

Should we forgive people who take care organized?

Yes, but we will also be able to speak out. But when we say the will do so in a cautious manner. Gal. 6. 1 Brothers! though a human being outwitted by some sin, we help him to correct, in spirit, with a meek spirit, but look to yourself that you do not and are tempted!

We also need to forgive for our own sake!

Forgiveness is also a factor for our own sake. I try to pull me away from difficult people, as there are plenty of God's church. But I will and always want to forgive them and if possible they would find repentance. Then you and I forgive them, they know many times not what they do and thus get nothing from the enemy to find and gain entry into my life as a believer. Heb. 12. 15 And heed that no man recoils from the grace of God, lest any root of bitterness to grow up and become men, and many will be infected by it.
