God’s forgiveness depends on our forgiveness


A person cannot receive the baptism with the Holy Spirit when he still holds a grudge against someone else.

God’s forgiveness depends on our forgiveness.

It is Jesus’ commandment:

For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses. Matthew 6.14-15

But how can I forgive when I don’t feel like forgiving, and I can’t forget all the wrong things this person has done to me?

How can I force my heart to forgive?

You can’t. No one can control the impulses of the heart. It is rebellious against God Himself, so of course, it will be even more rebellious with man!

So then how can I obey the Lord Jesus and forgive?

The heart can be anything, but it cannot control a person’s reason when they are decided.

Use your intelligence and pray for this person. Say their name before God, ask Him to bless them and things of the sort…

Even if your heart screams, throws a fit and feels hatred, the important thing is that you use your reason, intelligence and OBEY the Word of Jesus and say words that will bless the person.

It is obvious that the Holy Spirit, through this effort of faith, will immediately remove all these feelings from your heart.

You will be set free from the cancer of the soul, receive the forgiveness of God and the baptism with the Holy Spirit.
