This Law Is Serious

Matthew 6:14-15 KJV “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.”

A Christian who refuses to forgive has lost their way and needs to get it back.

Matthew 18:23-35 NET ““For this reason, the kingdom of heaven is like a king who wanted to settle accounts with his slaves. As he began settling his accounts, a man who owed ten thousand talents was brought to him. Because he was not able to repay it, the lord ordered him to be sold, along with his wife, children, and whatever he possessed, and repayment to be made. Then the slave threw himself to the ground before him, saying, ‘Be patient with me, and I will repay you everything.’ The lord had compassion on that slave and released him, and forgave him the debt. After he went out, that same slave found one of his fellow slaves who owed him one hundred silver coins. So he grabbed him by the throat and started to choke him, saying, ‘Pay back what you owe me!’ Then his fellow slave threw himself down and begged him, ‘Be patient with me, and I will repay you.’ But he refused. Instead, he went out and threw him in prison until he repaid the debt. When his fellow slaves saw what had happened, they were very upset and went and told their lord everything that had taken place. Then his lord called the first slave and said to him, ‘Evil slave! I forgave you all that debt because you begged me! Should you not have shown mercy to your fellow slave, just as I showed it to you?’ And in anger his lord turned him over to the prison guards to torture him until he repaid all he owed. So also my heavenly Father will do to you, if each of you does not forgive your brother from your heart.””

Here this servant was in danger of losing everything; even his entire family, they too were to be sold because he couldn’t pay his huge debt. He begs for mercy the king cancels his debt and he’s allowed to go free. Right after this happens he finds a fellow servant who owes him some chump-change. But instead of granting the same mercy that was just shown him he harasses his fellow demanding payment. When the man pleads for mercy (the same way he did to the king) he says, “NO!”😠 Then he has his fellow servant thrown in prison.😳 How wicked is this! This is what we are doing when we refuse to forgive others FROM OUR HEARTS.

God cancelled all of our sins, ALL OF THEM! We all have an enormous debt before God that we cannot pay. And we refuse to cancel the small irritations and sins of others? How sad.😪 If we are living like this we are in danger of losing everything unless we repent. Nothing anyone has ever done to us, said to us, no past sins or hurts is worth forfeiting our souls in hell and losing eternal life. Jesus says if we won’t forgive our brothers from our hearts; from our feelings, from our deepest emotions, we are hell bound, and will be tormented forever!😳 This is just punishment considering all the many sins God has been willing to forgive us of. All my fornications, my adulteries, my pornographies, my lusting, my idolatry, my stealing, my gossiping, my slander, my lying, my fighting, my taking the Lord’s name in vain, my judging others, my witchcrafts, and all of my sins, God is willing to cancel ALL OF THAT DEBT!😊 How can I hold someone else’s feet to the fire that wrongs me?😳 Their sins is chump-change compared to what we owe God!

Matthew 5:21-26 NET ““You have heard that it was said to an older generation, ‘Do not murder,’ and ‘whoever murders will be subjected to judgment.’ But I say to you that ANYONE WHO IS ANGRY WITH A BROTHER WILL BE SUBJECTED TO JUDGMENT. And whoever insults a brother will be brought before the council, and whoever says ‘Fool’ will be sent to fiery hell. So then, if you bring your gift to the altar and there remember that your brother has something against you, leave your gift there in front of the altar. First go and be reconciled to your brother and then come and present your gift. Reach agreement quickly with your accuser while on the way to court, or he may hand you over to the judge, and the judge hand you over to the warden, and you will be thrown into prison. I tell you the truth, you will never get out of there until you have paid the last penny!”

Remember, God is the judge; the lawgiver, the righteous King. It is wickedness he says not forgive. Let’s repent please and take this matter to heart. If God shows us that we’ve been harboring bitter resentment in our hearts towards others thank Him for it!😃 This is happening because God wants us to repent. He doesn’t want us to be judged as wicked and tormented in hell. God doesn’t desire that any should perish. May you and I please do the right thing and CANCEL ALL DEBTS! Let others sins, faults, and irritations go. Don’t hold on to anything against anybody.😊
