Forgiveness from God

Hey everyone, I am so excited about what we learned yesterday about forgiveness. I just wanted to review a few principles I talked about. I’m sorry I forgot to make sure it got recorded. Here is a quick review of what I shared. I pray that it blesses you good!

Forgiveness from God

·       Definition:  "to give up desire or power to punish" The Online Etymology Dictionary

·      Isaiah 1:18 “Come now, let us reason together, says the Lord: though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall become like wool.”

·      

·      Psalm 103:12 “As far as the east is from the west, so far does he remove our transgressions from us.”

o   If you go north you eventually hit the north pole and start going south.

o   You go east when do you start going west?

o   Even before they knew the earth was round the Holy Spirit used “east and west” to describe the distance our sins are from us through Christ.  

 

·      2nd Cor. 5:18-19 “All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation; that is, in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation.”

o   Returned to the high place as if you have never sinned

o   The new “sinless” reality is what Christ provided.

 

I hope this helps you walk a new way with a full revelation of forgiveness.  Enjoy the goodness of God!
