Matthew 18: 21-22
“If you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you; but if you do not forgive men, your Father will not forgive you your offenses either. When your brother or sister comes back to you and asks your forgiveness, be quick to forgive. When you forgive the brother or sister, you have not liked to speak or to hold a grudge in your heart. When God forgives you, He forgets everything you've done. We have to do the same.
1 Thessalonians 5: 1-5
When God grabbed Saul from Tarsus, we saw the change in him. Paul, who preached to the gentiles, had a discussion with those in Jerusalem. Peter echoed what Paul had said.
Acts 15: 6-18
What Peter said basically, James made clear in words. The Holy Spirit led James, He gave him the exact idea of God. The Jews could not understand this because they did not see the way of doing of God. Peterhad learned from Cornelius's situation. Peter was at Cornelius's house when a Jew was forbidden to go to the pagans. Some thought that Peter was not following the law of Moses but he was led by God. When the Holy Spirit comes, you can't resist. Never put God in a bottle. Peter and John were Jews, born in Israel, children of Abraham. They had the Word so it's okay to receive the Holy Spirit. But there, pagans, people who eat anything, who have foreign gods but there, the Holy Spirit fell in the house of Cornelius. The Holy Spirit descends into a justified man first, that is, God puts his hand on you. When God grabbed you, people can say whatever they want about you, you're in the hand of God. We were among them, children of anger, but in his great love, God picked us up. He saw how dirty we were (He didn't choose us because we were clean) so He washed us. You can't wash yourself because you don't know how to do it. You cannot change your nature yourself. He’s the one who changes your nature. "I will give you a new heart, and I will put a new spirit in you" (Ezekiel 36:26) Your love for me brought you to ordeal. The love of this man for me whose angels cannot even look at Him because Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord. When you fell, God did not stay on his Throne but He came in a human body to rescue you. For what He has done for us, we must glorify Him every day. Even when you were in dogma and creed, He came for you: What a Grace to be called a child of God! "But to all who received it, to those who believe in its name, it gave the power to become children of God" (John 1:12) This is a change. He made you a son of God. God's perfect will is that you be changed to become a child of God. If this is God's will, what power can block it? Who can prevent it? God takes care of washing you down to the last detail. "Sanctify them with your truth: your word is truth. (John 17:17) Where the hand of man cannot reach, God reaches it. Someone who is holy is holy in everything. When He makes you holy then He makes you truly holy. We cannot sanctify ourselves but it is He who sanctifies us. “For by one offering he brought to perfection those who are sanctified forever. (Hebrews 10:14) Nothing can stop God from making you holy. He makes you holy because Himself is holy, his tabernacle must be holy. One can only see God in the most holy place. “You are happy, Simon, son of Jonah; for it was not flesh and blood that revealed this to you, but it is my Father who is in heaven. And I tell you that you are Peter, and that on this rock I will build my Church, and that the gates of hell will not prevail against it. (Matthew 16: 17-18) God comes to look for a blameless, wrinkled, blameless Church. All the demons of hell will be able to rise against it but it is impossible that they can have the upper hand. The evening time message has never been for everyone. God is always the same, the same from the start. He walks in the middle of the 7 gold candlesticks. The promise of the rapture is in the Bible. The most important is what God said. The angel told Cornelius to go get Peter, not another because the Holy Spirit follows the Word of God.
He said to Peter, “You are happy, Simon Bar-Jonah; for it was not flesh and blood that revealed this to you, but it is my Father who is in heaven. And I tell you that you are Peter, and that on this rock I will build my Church, and that the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. ” (Matthew 16: 17-18) At the cross of Golgotha, He stripped Satan, and He set us free. Every promise in the Bible is for you. You must conquer the territory that God has given you. There is no power that can go beyond Scripture. He said to Peter, "I will give you the keys to the kingdom of heaven: what you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and what you loose on earth will be untied in heaven." "(Matthew 16:19) When Jesus rose from the dead, He said I hold the keys to hell but not the kingdom of God because He gave them to Peter, a human being. If we could achieve what we are in the eyes of the Lord. What you don't see is what the demons see of you. With natural eyes, you can't see anything. We must have our weaknesses to know how to beg Him and humble ourselves before Him, but “by one offering, he brought to perfection those who are sanctified forever. »(Hebrews 10:14) Your redemption, your redemption is truly eternal, no one can say anything. Your redemption was made in the perfect tabernacle, not with the blood of goats but with perfect blood. “Blessed be God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with all kinds of spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ! (Ephesians 1: 3) No one can take that away from you, not even wizards. Your whole life, as long as you hold on to the word of God, the blessing is with you. In all areas of your life. You will always be the head, not the tail. All these blessings will accompany you if you only believe. Receive your blessings in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Cornelius had to bring this Peter there because he had the keys. We forget the Holy Scriptures but the angels know the Scriptures. Demons flee before the word of God. God is always precise in what He does. We must be subject to God. We don't want to do what we want but what God wants. "Let not my will be done, but yours. (Luke 22:42) We are therefore seeking to do the will of God. “You desire neither sacrifice nor offering, You opened my ears; You are not asking for a burnt offering or an expiatory victim. So I say: Behold, I come With the scroll of the book written of me.
I want to do your will, my God! (Psalm 40: 6-8) We must know who we are? This is the difference between Abraham and Lot. God is the maker of the impossible. We must take God at His words because He watches over His word. No matter what your condition is, remember what God said in His word. When God spoke to you, He placed something in you. Depth calls for depth. Under the oaks of Mamre, Abraham recognized the Lord among the three people. Why ? That’s the election.
Genesis 18: 1-10
"Why are you talking to them in parables? Jesus answered them, Because you have been given the knowledge of the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, and it has not been given to them. (Matthew 13: 10-11) If Abraham had not done as he said, he would not have known the promise for which the Lord had come. But he was a child of God. Likewise, Simeon had received the promise, he did not leave without seeing salvation. The baby was nothing special, but it was God himself who woke up in Simeon to see the child. Until the baby came, death couldn't hit Simeon. Likewise, in Egypt, when death struck, when blood was seen, death passed. Time is very short, seek salvation for your brother and sister. Never think badly of your brother or sister, do not have a double heart. When you love someone, you have a light heart but when you hate someone, you are always in torment.
Matthew 18: 1-5
We have to stop selfishness.
2 Timothy 3: 1-2
He's the demon of this century. Abraham received these men kindly, there were no wanted interests. When God loved you, He loved you without interest. Abraham did not think about whether there would be more to eat, what the men would eat. Hospitality is important. When Peter preached, people went home and they were touched in their hearts. They shared everything. When you receive the Word of God, it changes your interior. "Shall I hide from Abraham what I am going to do? ..." (Genesis 18:17)
