Have you received God's forgiveness?

 










Have you received the gift from God that changes you?
 
Many church going “Christians” think they have received the gift of God but clearly the outcome of their lives proves something different. If you were a true child of God and saw me most of my life you would have known I was one of those that had received His gift.
 
When a person truly receives the gift of God what happens to a person within cannot be denied as being a gift they have received from God. Our Heavenly Father reveals this to us through His Word and it is proven and lived out in each child of God that has received Him. Today many churches are preaching and teaching another word, and another gospel and there is no real proof that a person has truly received him by the outcome of their souls, spirit and body lived lives when they face circumstances or relationships in their lives.
 
Through the Holy Spirit John records, the words of His Lord, Jesus Christ, John 12:46 I have come into the world as a light, so that no one who believes in me should stay in darkness.
 
This darkness Jesus is talking about is sin and if a person is sinning everyday it is because they have not received anything from Almighty God because in Him there is no darkness. John writes this in his first letter to followers of Christ after He received the Holy Spirit.
 
1 John 1:5 This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all. If we claim to have fellowship with him yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live by the truth. But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son purifies us from every sin.
 
If a person is claiming they have fellowship with Him and yet they sin everyday then they are lying and not living out His truth. Many people today are having fellowship with one another, but they do not have fellowship with Him if they are still living the life they use to live. The darkness should be fading, but if a person is still sinning, and claiming they have fellowship with Him this is proof they are lying and not living His truth.
 
They still are having fellowship with darkness, and accepting their sinful nature, and lifestyles.  What makes them any different than anyone else in the world when they are living as they use to live in the world? Jesus came to turn a person away from darkness, and that is the proof of His light of truth working in them, their minds and hearts are being renewed for the love and fellowship with God. God sent His Son to open the eyes of the blind and turn them from darkness to light, from the power of Satan to God, and He uses His disciples the same way.
 
Acts 26:28 I (Jesus) am sending you to them to open their eyes and turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God, so they may receive forgiveness of sins and a place among those who are sanctified by faith in me.
 
Paul states that a person should no longer continue to live in sin if they have crucified themselves with Christ. Grace should not be a reason to continue to sin, but God’s way through the gift of His Son to stop a person from sinning. If they have been crucified through their death spiritually then His resurrected life should prove they are living for fellowship with the Father and Son and not continue to satisfy their sinful natures any longer. If they do have fellowship and are living for God their bodies should prove to be instruments of His righteousness that works in and through them that draw people to Him, and not to themselves.
 
Romans 6:1 What shall we say, then? Shall we go on sinning so that grace may increase? By no means! We died to sin; how can we live in it any longer? Or don’t you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death.
 
If a person is sinning everyday this clearly is proving they have not crucified themselves at the Cross so He could resurrect His life saving grace into them. Paul is clearly stating if a person has crucified Himself fully to Christ they cannot go on sinning, it is impossible, and if you are this is proof that you have not crucified yourself to Christ as Savior and Lord of your life.
 
A person’s mind is set or trained to go two ways. It is that simple but we like to complicate things and make ourselves more powerful than He is. It boggles my mind when I hear a “Christian” say they will struggle with sin the rest of their lives because they are evil. They are telling God their evil is much more powerful than His grace, and His blood that was shed for them on the Cross cannot give them victory over their sinful natures during their life time because their sinful natures are much more powerful than He is. They are telling God what He willed for His Son to do for mankind on the Cross is not enough to rescue them from the struggle of sin they face every day.
 
When an alcoholic says “I will suffer from this disease the rest of my life.” They are telling God that their disease is much more powerful than God and there is no way they can have complete healing, peace, or rest for their souls the rest of their lives. Paul tells us plainly our minds are set or trained to go in two directions. Our lives will prove how each one of us are living by the way our minds are trained or set. Our Father can break any mind like he shook the earth!
 
Those who live according to the sinful nature have their minds set on what that nature desires; but those who live in according to the Spirit have their mind set on what His Spirit desires. The mind of the sinful man is death, but the mind controlled by the Spirit is life and peace; the sinful mind is hostile to God. It does not submit to God’s law, nor can it do so. Those controlled by the sinful nature cannot please God, and this is why they believe their sinful nature is greater than His, their minds are set on their sinful nature and not His Spirit.
 
 (NIV)Romans 8: 6 The mind of sinful man is death, but the mind controlled by the Spirit is life and peace; the sinful mind is hostile to God. It does not submit to God’s law, nor can it do so. Those controlled by the sinful nature cannot please God.
 
(KJV)For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.
 
The word carnally is the Greek word, sarx. It means the flesh, mere human nature, the earthly nature of man apart from divine influence, and therefore prone to sin and opposed to God. All human beings have a carnal nature, and it depends on what your mind is focused on, your flesh or His Spirit.
 
Who controls you, yourself and your sinful nature, or have you crucified yourself, and given your rights to yourself for the Spirit of God to control your mind? Where does your mind go, to your sinful nature, or to His Spirit?
 
Each circumstance and relationship is given to us in this world to prove these words. If our minds are set on the Spirit of God we will always pour out His given light, and show His peace during all circumstances, and especially the difficult ones. Many people think when their problems are bigger God gets smaller, but truly the bigger our problems are the bigger God is, and the more His peace and faith are seen. This today is not seen in most "Christians" when they face a trail or suffering of many kinds. 

If we are controlled by our sinful natures, we will have our mind set on death, worry, despair, hopelessness, and loneliness, and we will not be pleasing God. We should be people above this world not a part of this world, but many “Christians” are conforming and staying conformed to this world revealing their flesh is more powerful than Him.
 
If a person has not received His Spirit as Savior there is no way a person can give their rights to Him for Him to control their mind and become Lord of their lives. One must receive His Spirit of forgiveness as Savior before they can give their rights to themselves over to Him for His control as their Lord. Many today want a Savior but they do not want a Lord.

Him being your Lord is proven when you face a trail. Him being a perfect Father is proven when you face a trail because you have all you need given by Him to face it without getting burned or stung by it. Many “Christians” are getting burned and stung by their circumstances no different than those in the world.
 
Do we truly want God to control our lives, or are we doing fine controlling it the way we want to, and are we molding him into the image we choose to suit our purpose and needs? How we respond to our circumstances reveals how much faith we have in Him. 

Are we living the life He has given with His grace and love that never leaves us wanting for anyone or anything else greater?  Are we truly experiencing a peace that goes beyond human understanding that is bigger than any problem we face? Are we experiencing within ourselves a faith and hope that can move mountains, and a joy that can’t be taken away? It is His miracle of salvation many are not revealing they have received within themselves today that His word, and Spirit testifies too.
 
People register their vows, memberships, sign pledges, recite creeds and are determined to go through by their decisions, and power, but this is not salvation. People are trying so hard to get themselves through, but truly the less we try the more He works in giving us all we need. All the work we need to do is have faith in Him giving us all we need. Many today are gathering together, and following a gospel and instructions that is not given by Him.
 
Salvation means a person is drawn to the Cross by the power of God Almighty and no other way can a person be saved, reborn, redeemed, and sanctified. Their lives will always prove His work in and through them by their devotion for Him, their minds being renewed by Him, and their sins becoming less and less due to His amazing grace. They will not be living the same way every day in sin, devoted to other things above Him, and their sins remaining the same.  Their desires will change, how they do things will change, their purpose and their motives will change. There deepest passion will change, and their strength will change.
 
His children are called to do many works in this world that should be drawing others from the power of Satan to the power of God. There should be “Christian” business men drawing other business men from the power of Satan to God. There should be many politicians that are “Christians” drawing other politicians from the power of Satan to the power of God. There should be athletes that are “Christians” that are drawing other athletes from the power of Satan to the power of God. There should be doctors, moms, dads, brothers, sisters, teachers, professors and instructors of all kinds drawing people from the power of Satan to the power of God. There should be “Christians” in every work place, in every community, drawing people from the power of Satan to the power of God. Today the world is grieving the Spirit of God, and the world is creeping into His church grieving the Spirit of God.
 
Have you truly received Him and His forgiveness of your sins? If so, don’t reject, misuse, or abuse His gift by continuing living in sin, but be willing to give Him all rights to yourself, so He can transform you from the power of Satan to the power of God. Then He will use you as an instrument to work in and through by His words and deeds that draws other people from the power of Satan to the power of God just as He used all the other prophets and disciples that came before you.
 
If you have not received His forgiveness, go to Him now, He is drawing you from His Spirit through these words He has given the world. Ask Him to forgive you for your sinful nature, the nature that keeps you from acknowledging Him, and how big He is, and mean it! Tell Him you want to be free of all that is not Him in you! Tell Him you want to be free of all that is hindering His growth, faith, wisdom, power and peace from growing in you. 

Tell Him you want to know Him as He truly is. Tell Him you will listen to Him above all other voices! Tell Him the truth!He will give you His gift of His Son through His Spirit of truth that keeps on giving as you keep on crucifying yourself for Him. Don’t forget He will tell you each day what you must give up if you want to continue walking in the light as He is in the light, and you must be willing to give it up! Being stubborn against Him is much different than being stubborn for Him!
