Forgiveness For A Penitent Man

2 Cor.2:5 But if any have caused grief,he hath not grieved me, but in part:that I may not overcharge you all.

6 Sufficient to such a man is this punishment, which was inflicted of many.

7 So that contrariwise ye ought rather to forgive him and comfort him, lest perhaps such a one should be swallowed up with over much sorrow.

We must understand Paul's feeling's for all we have to do is look back from where he came from.

He had basically tried to destroy the Church when he was called Saul.

He had held the coats of the ones that stoned Stephen he would compel them to be forgiving.

verse 8 Wherefore I beseech you that you would confirm your Love toward him!

9 For this end also did I write, that I might know the proof of you, wether ye be obedient in all things.

Now did Paul say in some things or just the things we think is how we understand them or is it the way the Lord understands it.

Verse 10 To whom ye forgive anything , I forgive also for if I forgave anything, to whom I forgave it.

for your sakes forgave I it in the person of Christ. Now be very very sure of the next verse.

11 Least Satan get an advantage of us for we are not ignorant of his devices.

Listen Brothers and Sisters in Christ if we let our selves be throw about by all kinds of Doctrines.

Do we not know our Lord told us there would be a falling away from the Church in the Last days!

Be very very careful deception is like a little leaven.

Do you know how many times our Lord gave the example of a little leaven. He or She that hath a ear to hear. Amen

The Church how can the word be heard without a Preacher

Rom 10:8 But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, [even] in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach;

Rom 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

Rom 10:10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

Rom 10:11 For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.

Rom 10:12 For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.

Rom 10:13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

Rom 10:14 How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed?
and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?

What we must understand is that we need to hear a Preacher not just to be saved but also to keep our spirits lifed up. Yes we can lift our Spirit's in Praise and Worship.

But we also can have a Spritual lifting of hearing the word preached.
Our faith comes by hearing and we can be brought to a place in our understanding that a good spirit filled sermon brings to us.

We can only find this within the Church and with the children of our Lord and Savoiur Jesus Christ.

Rom 10:15 And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!

Rom 10:16 But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Esaias saith, Lord, who hath believed our report?
If faith comes by hearing the word of God Preached we need to have this within our lives and within the Church and how can you get this if you are not in Church.

Rom 10:17 So then faith [cometh] by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

If We Think That Only Today's Church Is

We Need To Only Look into the Problems That Plagued the Early Church to think that there has not been problems all along we need to Think Again!
Rev 2:8 And unto the angel of the church in Smyrna write; These things saith the first and the last, which was dead, and is alive;

Rev 2:12 And to the angel of the church in Pergamos write; These things saith he which hath the sharp sword with two edges;

Now I don't want to list all the Church's that our LORD Spoke about in the 2 Chapter of Rev. that there were many things these Church's Needed to Work on and to Repent of.

Now there are people today that say all Church's are not Being Scriptural about there teachings within the Church.

I say to them that have said the church needs to get back to the Days of the Early Church. Now we need to under stand a few things in the Scriptures

# 1 We cannot Judge the Church be Very, Very, Careful to think you have the Knowledge to Judge The Church.

Now if you do not agree leave and look for another if you do not agree with them leave if you do not agree with them leave if you want.

Now I am not telling you you must do this because we must continually pray for the brethren and for our own understanding of his word.

If we are continually at odds with every Church we come in contact with we need to Look hard in a mirror.

For like the scriptures say we are not to lean upon our own understanding.

Pro 3:5
Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.

Rev 2:18 And unto the angel of the church in Thyatira write; These things saith the Son of God, who hath his eyes like unto a flame of fire, and his feet [are] like fine brass;

I am not saying that we are not to have knowledge of the word. Of course we should read the scriptures and let the Spirit of Our Lord Leads us but we have to understand we are his Children and are subject unto him we are not to Judge and lead others in this way.

If we have a problem with a Church or Pastor or a Elder, Deacon or someone within the Church we are to forgive and humble ourselves they should see the Love of Jesus within us.

He taught us while he was here these facts.

We should Love everyone equally now you tell me do we do this commandment ?

As We Walk Beside Him

We as Children of God must understand we have a responsibility that goes with our walk with his spirit in our Lives.

We will be looked upon as people to be compared to we must show his light within us and keep him upon our minds and speak to him as much as possible to be strong in his Love.

Please my brothers and sisters we must understand that we are nothing of our ownselfs but only through him that gives us strength.

We must not be judgemental of others we know our Lord told us Judge not and you shall not be judged.

I mean who are we to think that we know how our Lord will Judge the Church remember if we think we can judge he will judge us by his standard.

Luk 6:37 Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven:

We must also forgive for he also said if we can not forgive his father will not forgive us.

Mat 6:14 For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you:

Mat 6:15 But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

Our Lord is our Rock and the only thing that is good about us.

We have nothing good of our own as our righteousness is a filthy rags.

Pro 15:32
He that refuseth instruction despiseth his own soul: but he that heareth reproof getteth understanding.

Our lives are a walk along the paths in this world that sometimes leads us to decisions.

We must make as individuals that can be harmful to others.

As a Christian we will always be scrutinized by people within our faith and outside of our faith.

But what we have to remember that the world will always give you more room to comprise where the Lord is the same Yesterday, Today and forever!

Hbr 13:8
Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.

We Change in our own lives as did we as Children and as did our Parents as they grew up in the times thy lived.

You see Paul even had he share of problems within the Early Church's.

Do we know the Scriptures must we keep contiually telling people that has a ear for our perception of what we think the Problem is with in Todays Church.

We must be careful not to become a stumbling block for others.

He who hath a ear let them hear.They that are blind to see.

The Lord Jesus Love's us and wants us to be examples of his Word.

Look into the Reflections of our Souls

Will you come with me as we look into a Reflection from within the True Waters of our Lord and our Life's.
The passage of Psalms " Leadeth me beside the still Waters he Restoreth My Soul"!

The LORD [is] my shepherd; I shall not want.
Psa 23:2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
Psa 23:3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
Psa 23:4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou [art] with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Psa 23:5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
Psa 23:6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.

We as Human Beings of this World have been around the block as we call it quite a few times.

We tell ourselves we are not that bad? But if we Reflect within his Waters do we really understand all we have been thru and what we will be like in the future.

If we claim the Cross of Christian do we really understand the Truth from within our hearts.
You see there is one that knows our hearts and he will forever will be the Truth of the Word.
We need to understand the way we keep his word within our Hearts. Do we really live his Word within his Love.
Yes a Love that we as individuals need to understand that compassion and Love go hand in hand.
We must know within our hearts that the gift of Love is all compassing with the peace of forgiveness that we must know with in our hearts and souls.

You can not be judgemental, harsh, bitter, hateful, deceitful, unfaithful, have a attitude of I am better than them.

Psa 145:8 The LORD [is] gracious, and full of compassion; slow to anger, and of great mercy.
Psa 145:9 The LORD [is] good to all: and his tender mercies [are] over all his works.
