Christ died once fa all…

Christ died once fa all…fa all sin…not fa all ppl…His work was aimed at th spiritual…not th flesh…

flesh dies…but th new creation lives and thrives in Christ bein conformed to th image of Christ…

and so there is forgiveness…

forgiveness comes from Christ and not from people. People who are injured and offended do not forgive because they have no forgiveness in them to give. When we walk around talking about getting over something or telling people to suck it up or telling people to just let it go or telling people that stupid cliche let go and let God as tho that answers anything as though a man can allow God to do a thing, there is no forgiveness in any of those cliches. And apart from forgiveness there is no healing. Christ died once for all. Apart from Him there is not forgiveness for healing.

if I owe somebody $5 and I cannot pay it and somebody else pays it for me that means I no longer owe the debt because the debt is paid but it also means the person I owe is no longer lacking what I owe.

what passes for forgiveness in the earth does not satisfy the debt and there is no healing. Forgiveness is of and by Christ alone.

jesus never told anybody to suck it up. He never looked at any injured person and said deal with it. He never once said let go and let God. Jesus Christ is not a cliche and he does not speak cliches. The forgiveness of God is very real. It pays the debt that is owed which means that the injured party is no longer injured. Because healing flows in forgiveness. The Lord does not restore us to each other. He restores us to our Father. And in Christ we are gathered together in him. Not merely restored in the earth but restored and gathered together in Christ.

the Lord told me a long time ago the vertical pole of the cross shows our relationship with our Father must go through Christ. The horizontal pole of the cross shows us our relationships wit each other must go thru Christ…

forgiveness flows out of us bc Christ in us … apart frm Christ theres no forgiveness or healing…

be aware that ppl apart frm Christ have no way to forgive…they are yet raging in si.n and injury and are calloused over by cliches and flesh works that seek to heal their wounds and hide their hate…ppl dont get over injury…wounds can close up but scars remain…reminders of injuries…in flesh this is so…

if a man leg is broken…tho th bone might fuse…he maybe limp bc of it…or have pain or otber reminders of injury…and maybe in his mind the enemy of God plays over and over that injury and its fresh in his mind each time….maybe his injury makes him unable to walk or work…etc…so that one wound cause tentacles of problems fa him…

he cant forgive…not apart frm Christ…bc he is up under a gr8 weight…one that impedes so much of his life…

thats how it is frm offense…its an injury…a v real injury…

only th new creation in Christ forgives…bc th forgivenes pours out frm th Lord…not flesh….and in that forgivenesz is true healing and restoration to th Lord…and bc of th foregiveness of th Lord is true love btwn ppl….bc Christ stands btwn us ….

th cross brings us to our Father thru our Brotha and to our brotha thru our Father…

when ppl talk abt forgivenesz and wat ghey forgive and why…so they can move on or get past a thing or get healed….its only talk…flesh coverin up in leaves and boastin cliches…

remmy th guy at th gadarenes…he was an offense…a terror…but Christ put him in his right mind….seated at th feet of th Lord…his hair was combed…and he found peace…

that is th power of forgiveness…

it dont please God that th wicked shld perish….but thatthey shld turn frm their wivcked ways and be saved…

only th Father can turn us….which is wat repentance is…turning from adam to face Christ…and only th Lord Jesus Christ has power on earth to forgive sin…

after her family was killed by Nazis in th concentration camps bc they were hiding jews frm th Nazis…Corey Ten Boom and her sister spent yrs together in th camp and th Lord revealed Hiself to them and they shared their rvelation witb those in prison wit em…th day b4 she wad mistakenly released frm th camp her sisyer died and corey alone was left of her family…yet th Lord was wit her…

she was preachin in germany after th war…a man came to her to shake her hand…he said he was a former nazi soldier and want her forgiveness bc he was know th Lord and forgave by th Lord…she recognized him as th soldier who guarded th camp she was in that killed her sister and took her whole family…

im paraphrasin this …

she wanna forgive him cuz she was suppose to…so says th natursl mind…suppose to is flesh…but her arm wss like wood and she cldnt raise it to shake his hand..but th Spirit of th Lord moved…and when He lifted her arm to shake that mans hand….she actually felt th forgiveness pour and…she lovef that man as a brother…

do u see that forgiveness isnt some one sided thang? true forgiveness removes th debt frm tb one who owes it….but also pays th debt to th one who its owed to…a clumsy explain i know…

but so many preach a forgivenesz that has no healing but is lip service to th wounded and is “given” fa purely selfish readons…so i csn move on get past this whatever…

th forgiveness of God doesnt move us past a thing…it heals us restores us to Him….and gathers us together in Christ….makes us whole NOT merely repaired…

th forgivenesz of God dont come wit psychology to explain why bc His healin isnt by human knowledge or understsnding…i dont have to know th menytality of an offender….i dont have to understand why he did wat he did so Christ can flow…nothin of th flesh matters… neither why he did or why it hurts…its all sin…offense is sin…

forgiveness from th Lord pours outta th Lord ppl…by His doin not by ours…Christ in us is th hope of glory…and that glory is a forgiveness that flows frm heaven and heals all it touches…

forgiveness isnt th onesided thang ppl offer and boast in…apart frm Christ their forgiveness is a callous over their wound that rages in pain sin and hate…true forgivenesd frm th Lord is complete…it heals and restores…and ONLY Jesus Christ has power on earth to forgive sin…

    Love this so much, and the Lord showed me much about this too. I remember waiting for an apology or even some sign of remorse from someone who deeply hurt me for years yet it never came. I remember trying to forgive on my own and said it aloud to make it official, but exactly like u said about the injury, it never leaves. It even has a nagging reminder where u try to pretend it isnt there, and even some flare-ups that are severe.

    We don’t forgive out of obligation (religion) but out of fulfillment (Christ).. and when Christ showed me forgiveness out of Him, it was not even earthly. It was like the sea pouring out of my belly and it washed away all the pain, anger and there was just love like I had never experienced it b4 or cld even fathom (the love of the Lord has made us unto Him from enemies into sons). There was no room to feel anything else and even to this day, I am still healed from it and have no fear of being re-offended by it.

    His forgiveness is power.. and its real, and its alive thru Christ. We can only wait and depend on Christ to do all things for us.

      i believe corey cldnt raise her arm bc th Lord wldnt let her….she is His…and His ppl are led by His Spirit…when forgiveness was poured out it was real forgiveness not flesh…

      only Christ remains…He is th last man standing…

      i love wat u shared…

      where it say…we must forgive or our Father wont forgive us…thats not an ultimatum…its truth…His promise that since forgiveness is IN us…meaning Christ in us who pours out…then we are assured that our Father forgives us….th new birth is proof we are forgiven…

      and apart frm Christ…not bein born of th Spirit of God… is proof of not bein forgiven…

      but wherever we are and watever happens we are His and He pours outta all our broken places…

      and we have gr8 hope bc Christ is come and He alone has power on earth to forgive sin…
