God’s end times Kingdom Law of Forgiveness
Following the law of forgiveness, gives access to the kingdom and its marvelous power. When we violate the law of forgiveness access to the kingdom and its power is blocked for us.
We see the law of forgiveness demonstrated in Matthew 6:5-15 and Mark 11:22-26. Matthew 6:14-15 says. "For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses".
Mark 11:22-26 says,22 "Have faith in God," Jesus answered.
23 "I tell you the truth, if anyone says to this mountain, 'Go, throw yourself into the sea,' and does not doubt in his heart but believes that what he says will happen, it will be done for him.
24 Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.
25 And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive him, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins. 26 but if you do not forgive, neither will your Father in heaven forgive your trespasses."
Here in Mark, we tend to focus on verses 23 through 24 and we miss the fact that verses 25 and 26 are conditions that must be met if we are to speak to our mountain and have it removed. That condition is the law of forgiveness. We must forgive or our Father will not forgive us if we are not forgiven our prayers are not answered and our mountains are not removed.
Forgive Yourself for end times preparation
The first person we most likely have to forgive is ourselves as we prepare for the end times. More people lack forgiveness toward themselves them toward anybody else. They are unwilling to forgive themselves and to recognize that God says, "as far as the East is from the west, so far has He removed our transgressions from us." (Psalms 103:12)
If you are a true believer, he has already cleansed your conscience from dead works so that you might serve the living God. (Hebrew 9:14). God cleanses us for service in order not to leave us with the guilt of past sins. Those past sins should be dead, buried, and forgotten.
"If our heart does not condemn us," the Bible says, "we have confidence towards God." (1 John 3:21).
Obviously, we cannot have continuing sin in our lives and expect forgiveness.
We have to be free from ongoing conscience sin and rebellion against God. But if we are walking in the light, and walking in forgiveness, then the blood of Jesus is continuously cleansing us from all sin (1 John 1:7).
Forgive God for end times preparation
The second person we have to forgive, especially if we have bitterness, is God Himself as we prepare for the end times. There are people who blamed God because a child died, because a husband ran away, because they have been sick, because they have not had enough money.
Consciously or unconsciously, some people think all of these things are God's fault. There is a deep-seated resentment; yet we cannot be resentful toward God and experienced Kingdom power flowing in your life: we have to rid yourself of any bitterness towards God. That may take some soul-searching. We must ask yourself, "Am I blaming God for my situation?”
Forgive Family Members
The third person, we may have to forgive is a member of our own family as we prepare for the end times. We have to get rid of resentment, especially towards those closest to us. The husbands, wives, children, and the parents - all must be forgiven when slights and resentments have built up in family situations.
Many people say, well, I didn't think that counted. I thought that was just a family matter. All lack of forgiveness has to be eliminated, especially toward every family member.
Forgive Any Others
Finally, for our end times preparation, there has to be forgiveness for anybody else who has ever done anything against us as we prepare for the end times. It may be that our resentment is justified. The person may have done a very evil, terrible thing to us. We may have every legal and intellectual right to hold a grudge and to hate that person. But if we want to see Kingdom life and power flow in our life, it is absolutely imperative that we forgive.
Forgive them to the point where we actually feel ourselves cleansed of resentment and bitterness and are actually praying for them. If we do not, the lack of forgiveness will make it impossible for God's power to be released to us and in us. The miracle life depends 100% on our relationship to God the Father. That relationship is built strictly on the strength of His forgiveness of our sin.
Forgiveness is the Key
Forgiveness is the key. However, other sins can be present, and if our heart condemns us for some other sin, then of course we do not have confidence before God. But it is lack of forgiveness that most often comes between people and God.
The law of forgiveness is given to make it possible for us to be effective in God's kingdom. If we have any unforgiveness, even if our heart has become hardened to a long ago unforgiveness we will be less than effective in God’s kingdom, and definitely not prepared for the end times. It will be disastrous to enter into the end times with unforgiveness in our heart.
