Workin’ It Out ~ Part 6

Much of my “work outs” take me from His voice to me directly back to His Voice to all (the Word of God). Often from another’s hearing Him…again back to His voice to me and His Word. Many devotionals are this way. To example, I will share the Devotional reading and then list the scriptures that the Spirit led me to. Ending with how Adonai Himself speaks straight to me in pulling together every chord. Remembering…a chord of three strands is not easily broken 🙂
(Ecc. 4:12)

Devotional: Make Haste My Beloved by Frances J. Roberts.
Daily title: Mercy and Grace pages 34+35.

Mercy is the grace of the forgiven. It is possible to give only that which has been received. The man who has not accepted his own forgiveness (by God) cannot extend forgiveness to his brother.
It is the nature of mercy to be gracious. Grace forgives and in so doing unlocks the self-condemnation from his prison of guilt. This law operates between God and man and between man and his brother. What you loose on earth, said Jesus, shall be loosed in heaven; and likewise, what you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven.
Any resentment harbored toward a brother is a binding force upon his soul. He may take authority over it and free himself (through Christ), or he may fail to recognize the source of his bondage and continue in torment. Evil thoughts towards others would be dealt with swiftly if the extent of their damaging influence were even dimly understood. Furthermore, the harmful impact is equally destructive to both the sender and receiver – the offending and the offended. For the force of evil, as the force of good, operates in a spiritually tangible way as powerfully as if it were translated into words or deeds. This is why Jesus said, in effect “the law says, do not kill, but I say, do not hate.” A man cannot be prosecuted by civil law for wrong thoughts; but in the court of heaven, his guilt is sealed while his sin is yet only a mental crime. Many a would-be saint has lost communion with his heavenly Father and forfeited inner peace because of hate, resentment and unforgiveness, even when these thoughts have been concealed in the innermost recesses of his heart.
It is the work of the Holy Spirit, the purger of souls, to ferret out these enemies of the love of Christ, to bring insight and conviction and guide the offender to repentance and forgiveness. At this point, the love of Christ takes over and begins to teach him how to redirect his thoughts into channels of love, forgiveness, and grace. He will learn how to free and not bind; how to send blessing rather than a curse; how to pray constructively rather than to condemn an erring brother.
So shall God’s people be healed and His Bride prosper because Grace shall flow from member to member, binding breaches and pouring oil upon troubled waters; opening the door for the return of the prodigal and encouraging the fainthearted.

Scriptures I was led to by the Spirit.

2 Corinthians 2:14 – in the picture at the head of this post.

John 13:8
“No!”, said Kefa (Peter), “You will never wash my feet!” Yeshua (Jesus) answered him, “If I don’t wash you, you will have no share with Me.”

John 15:1-11 ~ Yeshua speaking…
“I am the real vine, and My Father is the Gardener. Every branch which is part of Me but fails to bear fruit, He cuts off; and every branch that does bear fruit, He prunes, so that it may bear more fruit. Right now, because the Word which I have spoken to you, you are pruned. Stay united with Me, as I will with you – for just as the branch can’t put forth fruit by itself apart from the vine, so you can’t bear fruit apart from Me.
I am the vine and you are the branches. Those who stay united with Me, and I with them, are the ones who bear much fruit; because apart from Me you can’t do a thing. Unless a person remains united with Me, he is thrown away like a branch and dries up. Such branches are gathered and thrown into the fire, where they are burned up. If you remain united with Me, and My Words with you, then ask whatever you want, and it will happen for you. This is how My Father is glorified – in your bearing much fruit; this is how you will prove to be My talmidim (followers). Just as My Father loves Me, I too love you; so stay in My love. If you keep My commands, you will stay in My love – just as I have kept My Father’s commands and stay in His love. I have said this to you so that My joy may be in you, and your joy be complete.

Luke 5:23-24 ~ Yeshua Speaking…
Which is easier to say? ‘Your sins are forgiven you’? or ‘get up and walk’? But look! I will prove to you that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins. He then said to the paralytic, “I say to you: get up, pick up your mattress and go home”!”

Luke 6:27-38 ~ Yeshua speaking…
Never the less, to you who are listening, what I say is this:
Love your enemies!
Do good, to those who hate you,
Bless those who curse you,
Pray for those who mistreat you.
If someone hits you on one cheek, offer the other too; if someone takes your coat, let him have your shirt as well.
If someone asks you for something, give it to them; if someone takes what belongs to you, don’t demand it back.
Treat other people as you would like them to treat you. What credit is it to you if you love only those who love you? Why, even sinners love those who love them. What credit is it to you if you do good only to those who do good to you? Even sinners do that. What credit is it to you if you lend only to those who you expect will pay you back? Even sinners lend to each other, expecting to be repaid in full. But love your enemies, do good, and lend expecting nothing back! Your reward will be great, and you will be children of Ha’Elyon (the Most High): for He is kind to the ungrateful and the wicked. Show compassion, just as your Father shows compassion.
Don’t judge, and you won’t be judged.
Don’t condemn, and you won’t be condemned.
Forgive, and you will be forgiven.
Give, and you will receive gifts – the full measure, compacted, shaken together and overflowing, will be put right in your lap. For the measure with which you measure out will be used to measure back to you!”

Luke 7:47 ~ Yeshua speaking…

Because of this I tell you that her sins – which are many! – have been forgiven, because she loved much. But someone who has been forgiven only a little, loves only a little.

Luke 11:23 ~ Yeshua speaking…

Those who are not with Me are against Me, and those who do not gather with Me, are scattering.

Luke 12:2-3 ~ Yeshua speaking…

There is nothing covered up that will not be uncovered, or hidden that will not become unknown. What you have spoken in the dark will be heard in the light, and what you have whispered behind closed doors will be proclaimed on the housetops.

Psalms 32:1-5; 10-11

How blessed are those whose offense is forgiven, those whose sin is covered! How blessed are those to whom Adonai (the Lord) imputes no guilt, in whose spirit is no deceit!

When I kept silent, my bones wasted away because of my groaning all day long; day and night Your hand was heavy upon me; the sap in me dried up as in a summer drought.
When I acknowledged my sin to You, when I stopped concealing my guilt, and said, “I will confess my offenses to Adonai”; the You, You forgave the guilt of my sin
.
Many are the torments of the wicked, but grace surrounds those who trust in Adonai. Be glad in Adonai; rejoice, you righteous! Shout for joy, all you upright in heart!

Psalms 139:23-24

Examine me, God, and know my heart; test me, and know my thoughts. See if there is in me any hurtful way and lead me along the eternal Way.

(I leave it to the same Spirit which led me to connect all those “dots” of scripture to you in the context of the devotional. I boldened the phrases and/or words that He taught me at greater depth within)
What Adonai Elohim said directly to me:

All of those Words can be summed up in these, My child spoken directly to you from Me.
For forgiveness, one needs only to see Yeshua on the cross…where He purchased every offense and its effects! No one has a right to pretend ownership of them! The sacrifice of a broken and contrite heart is to give to Me the effects and offense, where they truly die and no longer hold power over flesh.
The sacrifice is to put aside, ignore and cease feelings and thoughts that lead to resentment, hatred, need to place judgement, assess, or “correct” an offender. To ask Me, to give you the thoughts I have for you when you offend Me. To ask Me to release the chains of fleshly human feelings that can dictate the power of thought and action without Me, which leads to unseen ripples in the Kingdom in which I ask you to now LIVE! Indeed I have given you this power through the Vine! He never failed Me, remain in Him and I will reveal My compassion through you in extraordinary ways! This is how you will “see” the power built up in your trusting Me!
Forgiveness is My right hand in power beyond the likes of the most powerful thing you can think of having seen in My creation! Its effects move well beyond your ability to comprehend! The more you summit to My power in forgiveness, in receiving it absolutely from Me and giving it absolutely for Me…the more you will know Me, trust Me and rejoice (have complete joy) in My ways and My thoughts! For…don’t you agree, Child, these are the very things that made all you see, touch, smell, hear and experience?? My thoughts and My ways CREATED! Let them continue to create in you!! You are forgiven…set free…give what I have so freely given to you!

Grace and peace in Yeshua the Messiah ❤
