Life is too important to be taken seriously
I pray TONIGHT that the Lord would go before you and make the crooked ways straight - that this will be a week of supernatural favor and divine intervention for you! The Lord will open doors of opportunity to show forth His goodness and magnify His glory in and through you! That He will fill you to overflowing with His Spirit. I pray that the wind of the Holy Spirit blow His fullness into your life in Jesus’ name! Be clothed with power from on high and anointed with fresh oil!! Expect His GREATNESS to be demonstrated in your life! I Love you all.. Amen and Amen… God bless you!!!
Aphiemi (greek) translated forgiven, means to leave or let go, give up a debt, send away from oneself.
Forgiveness means that a relationship has been renewed despite a wrong that has been done. but the act cannot be erased or changed.
But Aphiemi goes far beyond human forgiveness.
It includes putting away of sin:
Law and justice are satisfied because Jesus paid the penalty that sin deserved (thus sin can no longer be held against a believer).
The guilt caused by sin is removed and replaced with Christ’s righteousness. Believers are SO FORGIVEN that in God’s eyes, it’s as if they never sinned……
Let me ask you a question which Jesus asked the Pharisees: “Which is easier, to say [to the paralytic], ‘Your sins are forgiven you,’ or to say, ‘Rise up and walk’?” (Luke 5:23)
In the context of ministering to a paralytic, saying “Your sins are forgiven” is probably easier. Why? Because you don’t need an outward manifestation to prove that his sins are forgiven. But when you tell him, “Rise up and walk,” he must rise up and walk, or you will look very foolish! So that makes saying “Your sins are forgiven” easier than saying “Rise up and walk”.
The truth is, what is seemingly more difficult for man in the natural is not so for God. With God, physical healing is clearly “easier” for Him than forgiveness of sins. The latter is the “harder” and greater miracle because it required God to deliver up His beloved Son to take on all our sins and shed His blood on the cross.
Yet, when faced with a loved one stricken with cancer, or when gripped by mounting debts after being jobless for a long time, we seem to find it harder to believe and say that God has already given us the breakthroughs we need, than to believe and say that our sins are forgiven. Saying that our sins are forgiven seems easier than saying that God has already given us the miraculous physical healing, supernatural financial breakthrough or divine favor at the next job interview.
But since God has done the “harder” and greater miracle of “having forgiven you all trespasses”, there is nothing He will not do for you! (Romans 8:32) In fact, if you think that there is something that God is withholding from you, you are implying that that something is greater than the forgiveness of sins which Jesus died to give you! But nothing can be greater than the perfect sacrifice of Jesus.
So hear the Lord telling you today, “Your sins have been forgiven you. You have perfect acceptance before God. Rise up and be healed! Rise up and walk in health, wisdom, favor, protection and wholeness!”
