As to forgiveness; it must be stated as bluntly and clearly as Adonai (the Lord) has said Himself:  NOONE can forgive another’s wrongs done towards them without having received Yeshua (Jesus)’s forgiveness and thereby the Spirit sent to enable one to forgive.

All the world speaks well of being forgiving. (Well…there may be exceptions but the gist of it would be in “favor”). That is…the human concept of forgiveness laid out in Part A. Yet, if forgiveness, is its very invention, source, and originator is God; that is the God of Abraham, Jacob, Isaac, David, and Yeshua Himself, then no human can “revamp” the Way He designed it to function. There is no human capacity to forgive apart from Him. It is for His own Name’s sake that He forgives and thereby for His Namesake anyone else does. The Word of God can not be more clear about this. We don’t forgive wrongs to “get” anything for ourselves. We are given the very power of God to forgive with Him. The Kingdom of Heaven…here on Earth. Its true, that forgiveness born from above gives to its people freedom. Yes, we often seek forgiveness for this very reason…we want to be free of our own ugliness. But there is no condescending to admit our ugliness to get or give forgiveness to another human being. Yes, our lack of forgiveness is a bondage to a our status as sinful creatures. So to forgive we are set free, but for the function/purpose of being made one with Yeshua (Jesus). That’s it. So if a motive to ask God for forgiveness is anything other than the stated above, the power granted to us by Yeshua/God/the Spirit is not given.

Many many people think that forgiveness is a New Testament concept only. No!! A thousand times no! Forgiveness from human to human; such as God forgives; comes through Yeshua. But – God has been forgiving humans since the “dawn of Time”. He made it, He directs it, charges it and completes it. Always has…always will.

The Kingdom of Heaven was to be announced at the Word of Yeshua. Notice the first part of His directives in Matthew 3:2; 4:17; 10:7.

“Turn from your sin to God, for the Kingdom of Heaven is near“.

There is no accident or small connection between the two. The forgiveness of sin is the Will of the Father in Heaven to be done on Earth as it is in Heaven. This can not be understated. In fact it is not only from Old Testament but to the New.

Isaiah 38:16-17

Adonai (Lord), by these things people live; in all these is the Life of my spirit. You’re restoring my health and giving me life – though instead of peace, I felt very bitter.
You desired my life and preserved it from the nothingness pit; for You threw all my sins behind Your back.

Isaiah 44:22

Like a thick cloud, I wipe away your offenses; like a cloud, your sins. Come back to Me, for I have redeemed you.

Isaiah 48:11

For My Sake I Will do it, for My own sake. I will not let My reputation be tarnished; I will not yield My Glory to anyone else.

Isaiah 55:7

Let the wicked person abandon his way and the evil person his thoughts; let him return to Adonai, and He will have mercy on him; let him return to our God, for He will freely forgive.

Micah 7:18-19

Who is God like You, pardoning the sin and overlooking the crimes of the remnant of His heritage? He does not retain His anger forever, because He delights in Grace. He will again have compassion on us, He will subdue our iniquities.
You will throw all their sins into the depths of the sea.

Psalms 103:8-12

Adonai is merciful and compassionate, slow to anger and rich in Grace. He will not always accuse, He will not keep His anger forever. He has not treated us as our sins deserve or paid us back for our offenses, because His mercy towards those who fear Him is as far above earth as heaven. He has removed our sins from us as far as the east is from the west.

Daniel 9:9

It is for Adonai our God to show compassion and forgiveness, because we rebelled against Him.

2 Chronicles 6:21

Yes, listen to the pleas of Your servant, and also those of Your people Israel when they pray towards this place. Hear from where You live, from Heaven; and when You hear, forgive!

Mark 11:25 ~ Yeshua speaking…

And when you stand praying, if you have anything against anyone, forgive him; so that your Father in Heaven may also forgive your offenses.

Acts 3:19 (see also Matt. 3:2; 4:17; 10:7)

Therefore, repent and turn to God, so that your sins may be erased; so that times of refreshing may come from the Lord’s presence; and He may send the Messiah appointed in advanced for you, that is, Yeshua.

Ephesians 1:7-10

In union with Him, through the shedding of His blood, we are set free – our sins are forgiven; this accords with the wealth of Grace He has lavished on us. In all His Wisdom and Insight He has made known to us His secret plan, which by His own will He designed beforehand in connection with the Messiah and will put into effect when the time is ripe – His plan to place everything in Heaven and on Earth under the Messiah’s headship.

Colossians 1:13-17

He has rescued us from the domain of darkness and transferred us into the Kingdom of His Son. It is through His Son that we have redemption – that is, our sins have been forgiven. He is the visible image of the invisible God. He is supreme over all creation, because in connection with Him were all things created – in Heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones, lordship, rulers, or authorities – they have all been created through and for Him. He existed before all things, and He holds everything together.

I pray you see the mighty power of forgiveness as it is encouraged for us to pray in the Lord’s prayer. Also that in connection to this forgiveness we take part, through Yeshua, in bringing the Will of the Father to earth as it is in Heaven. That those scriptures in Matt.16:18-18; 18:18; John 20:21-23 – see part A
become clearer to you in the beauty of what Yeshua meant when He spoke of “what you permit/forbid on earth…will be as one in Heaven”. Held or forgiven…what a mysteriously amazing thing! That now, the idea of forgiving our enemies holds a brighter Light in revelation. We will never know until we see Him face to face just how powerful forgiveness really is. Only in the pure and direct pursuit of knowing Him can we forgive or be forgiven. Continually being made righteous by His work on that Hill in Jerusalem so long ago. Timeless was His obedience, endless is its power, bottomless is its Resources!! May He continue every day to unveil more of His Kingdom! As we receive His forgiveness and model after it forgiveness to our Brothers, Sisters, Neighbors. His Will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven!!

    “NOONE can forgive another’s wrongs done towards them without having received Yeshua (Jesus)’s forgiveness and thereby the Spirit sent to enable one to forgive.” You have certain said a mouthful! How true!

    Without the forgiveness of God we cannot forgive others around us with a Godly forgiveness.

    Lord bless you. It is always a blessing!
