How Will We Respond to the 🅸🅵s of Life?

There is a word in the English language that is crucial for us to stop and pause and consider.
Too often, we take it for granted and ignore the severity of the consequences of not following through with whatever it it implying.
That word is 𝑰𝒇.
Yes this little word, 🅸🅵 holds alot of weight. It is a Hinge that holds the outcomes of the door to freedom.
💞💛 🅸🅵 🔥😱
Can be the difference between winning and losing. It can make the difference between living or dieing.
This tiny word holds the key to Freedom and many have not truly understood the consequences of not really considering ehat it implies.
Here are are a few to begin…
🅸🅵 we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
I John 1:9
You see only 🅸🅵 we confess our sins can we be forgiven. There is a prerequisite to being forgiven.
Not everyone gets a free pass.
When the game is over… When life is done, not all people get to heaven. Sadly, some folks never consider the word 🅸🅵 too seriously. They just assume they will get in.
Imagine assuming you havr money in the bank, when you never made a deposit.
Imagine thinking and wishing to construct a house and expecting it to be there when you never laid a single brick. There was never any frame or foundation established. Somehow expecting the house to be built sounds absurd, doesn’t it?
The doctor tells a person that 🅸🅵 they do not stop smoking they will damage their lungs further and risk death.
The person then, knoeingly continues to smoke. Sounds familiar?
The diagnosis reads- Cirrhosis of the Liver the Doctor says, 🅸🅵 you do not stop drinking you will die.
The outcome will depend on how quickly the person responds to such a statement.
The next actions will determine whether this person lives or dies.
In life there are choices we must make regarding our eternal destination as well.
Foolishly some think there is no afterlife. Some believe there is just an end and that is all.
Scripture teaches us that there is a time when our lives here will come to an end and then judgment and recompense will come.
Yet God has made everything beautiful for its own time. He has planted eternity in the human heart, but even so, people cannot see the whole scope of God’s work from beginning to end. Ecclesiastes 3:11
In order to make it to heaven we must believe.
God made a specific way for us to come in. There is a path that is set before us.
Without following the Biblical GPS, that is the Map of God’s word we cannot find our way to heaven. That door will open and that Hinge will turn as we follow through this path.
John 3:16 says,
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believes in him will not perish but have everlasting life.
That is in other words, accepting Jesus is a prerequisite to receiving eternal life.
For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus, who gave Himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time,
I Timothy 2:5-6
We cannot make it in, just because we wish to go in. We cannot be good enough or perform many kind acts. We cannot be a good upstanding citizen and expect to make it in on our own merit. We cannot give to the poor and needy and be a good neighbor and think that is enough.
You see from the beginning we have this fallen nature. No one ever has to teach child to steal. He simoly does and must be corrected.
We do not have to teach a child to lie, they lie early on. “I did not take that cookie.” They do it because it is found in our genetic makeup. We are all children of Adam.
Since Adam and Eve sinned, they passed on the disease on to all their offspring.
Left to our own devices we would take what we want, ignore the needs of others and seek after our own. Our egocentric character is a trait we inherited from Adam.
In the garden, when both Adam and Eve had eaten from the forbidden fruit tree. They quickly blames someone else for their disobedience. They pointed the finger to the next one over.
Adam blamed Eve. Then Even blamed the serpent.
We do the same. We push the blame on others and easily forget our own guilt. But the Bible says,
“for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,”
Every person has at one time or another lied, Taken something that was not theirs. Every person has failed someone else on some level. We have all made mistakes. In anger we have wounded people. In sadness we have ignored others because of our own sorrow. In desperation we have used words that were unkind. We have even gotten angry at God for things we may be going through.
The old saying says,
“Don’t bite the hand that feeds you.”
Yet we fight against God all the time. Some refuse to believe He exists while others claim to know him when they never read His Word. Some pray only when they are in some desperate situation or crisis. Then after all claims down, they return to doing the same things that offend God. We talk about being grateful, but in truth we show little gratitude to the one who has made us and who grants us the very breath in our lungs.
We are not saved by our own merit. We cannot save ourselves.
But God in his marvelous mercy abeciase of his great love for us gives us a way in. That way is through FAITH.
FAITH IN JESUS CHRIST THE SON OF GOD.
So IF we believe and seek him….
For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.
The Bible clearly says we must repent. We must turn away from our sin and follow Jesus in faith.
🅸🅵 we do not believe we cannot go through.
🅸🅵 we do not confess our sin, He cannot forgive us.
🅸🅵 we do not seek Him we cannot find him.
🅸🅵 we ignore this we will suffer the consequences.
But 🅸🅵 we Do BELIEVE THERE IS GREAT REWARD.
Jesus said to him, “ 🅸🅵 you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.”
The Lord is with you, while ye be with him; and 🅸🅵 ye seek him, he will be found of you; but if ye forsake him, he will forsake you.
2 Chronicles 15:26
But from there you will seek the Lord your God, and you will find Him 🅸🅵 you seek Him with all your heart and with all your soul.
THERE IS ANOTHER PART TO THIS…
But 🅸🅵 ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.
Mathew 6:15 KJV
But 🅸🅵 you do not forgive other people, then your Father will not forgive your offenses.
Mathew 6:15 ESV
But 🅸🅵 you refuse to forgive others, your Father will not forgive your sins. Mathew 6:15
There is no Way We can Enter Heaven’s Peralta Gates without Forgiveness.
We must BE FORGIVEN.
AND We Must Also FORGIVE OTHERS.
HOLD ON A MINUTE!
Lady You Have No Idea What This Person Did To Me! 𝔽𝕆ℝ𝔾𝕀𝕍𝔼
But They Abandoned Me. 𝔽𝕆ℝ𝔾𝕀𝕍𝔼
They Lied About Me.
They stole From Me.
They Hurt My Family.
But He Abused Me.
He Put My Life At Risk.
They are in Prison for their crimes. I TESTIFIED AGAINST THEM.
Good you did the Right Thing. Now 𝔽𝕆ℝ𝔾𝕀𝕍𝔼.
Miss you have no Idea, I Cannot Forgive Myself. My Sins Are many. I messed up. I Hurt too Many People.
The Answer for your my Friend is Also 𝔽𝕆ℝ𝔾𝕀𝕍𝔼.
The Bible says,
ꫀׁׅܻ᥎꫶ׁׅꫀׁׅܻꪀׁׅ ꪱׁׅ⨍ ᨵׁׅυׁׅꭈׁׅ hׁׅ֮ꫀׁׅܻɑׁׅ֮ꭈׁׅtׁׅ꯱ׁׅ֒ ᝯׁᨵׁׅꪀׁׅժׁׅ݊ꫀׁׅܻ ꩇׁׅ݊ꪀׁׅ υׁׅ꯱ׁׅ֒, Gᨵׁׅժׁׅ݊ ꪱׁׅ꯱ׁׅ֒ ᧁׁꭈׁׅꫀׁׅܻɑׁׅ֮tׁׅꫀׁׅܻꭈׁׅ tׁׅhׁׅ֮ɑׁׅ֮ꪀׁׅ ᨵׁׅυׁׅꭈׁׅ hׁׅ֮ꫀׁׅܻɑׁׅ֮ꭈׁׅtׁׅ꯱ׁׅ֒, ɑׁׅ֮ꪀׁׅժׁׅ݊ hׁׅ֮ꫀׁׅܻ ƙׁׅ֑ꪀׁׅᨵׁׅᨰׁׅ꯱ׁׅ֒ ɑׁׅ֮ᥣׁׅ֪ᥣׁׅ֪ tׁׅhׁׅ֮ꪱׁׅꪀׁׅᧁׁ꯱ׁׅ֒. 1John 3:20
🅸🅵 we Hold Grudges
We can’t get in.
🅸🅵 we continue Talking about the matter, we can’t get in.
🅸🅵 we claim
to Know Jesus
We Must 𝔽𝕆ℝ𝔾𝕀𝕍𝔼.
🅸🅵 We Expect to Be Forgiven We Must .
There is no other way.
We must believe that Jesus Took our Sin up on Himself on the Cross. He Died in our place.
For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
The Only way to Make it To Heaven is to Believe in Jesus and Be Saved.
Next We must forgive those who have wronged us in any way.
Knowing forgiveness and the Love of God for humanity causes us to be able to forgive.
In our own strength we will fail. The pain suffered through years lost, the time spent going through horrible circumstances are not worth holding on to.
FREEDOM IS TO BE
𝔽𝕠𝕣𝕘𝕚𝕧𝕖𝕟 from Sin.
𝔽𝕠𝕣𝕘𝕚𝕧𝕖𝕟𝕖𝕤𝕤 is To FREE YOURSELF and Others from the Prison of your Mind.
God knows what we need. He understands that holding anger can cause bitterness that can turn to hatred. Hatred can alienate us further away from God.
We doom ourselves to be lost. When we don’t forgive others.
In order to please God we must follow his word. Then they asked Jesus,
“Teacher, which is the great commandment in the Law?” And he said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself.
So, 🅸🅵 I choose to Believe I will be saved.
And to Be Forgiven by God, I Must 𝔽𝕆ℝ𝔾𝕀𝕍𝔼.
The word 🅸🅵 is one we truly must Consider. The consequences are too great not to adhere to the application of this word.
In conculsion we understand that,
We will be forgiven by God 🅸🅵 we acknowledge our sin repent and Believe in Jesus confessing him as Lord; we can make it to heaven for sure when we 𝔽𝕆ℝ𝔾𝕀𝕍𝔼.
When we come to the Lord he is faithful. He loves us. His desire is that no one is lost. He wants to restore every area of our lives.
He longs to make us new.
He no longer will look at your past and mine.
When we come to know His Love and forgiveness we will be able to let go of past hurts.
There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life has set you free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death. For God has done what the law, weakened by the flesh, could not do. By sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and for sin, he condemned sin in the flesh, in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not according to the flesh but according to the Spirit. For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit set their minds on the things of the Spirit. For to set the mind on the flesh is death, but to set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace.
Lord, I pray this word, is healing to all who read it.
I pray that it will cause us to examine ourselves and give up to you all those areas we need to surrender.
I pray we will be able to forgive those who have wronged us.
We Want to enter in.
Let us respond well the the questions with the word 🅸🅵.
Help us I pray.
