This is a teaching on Forgiveness.
If you can read this whole teaching that I have posted and are honest with your self you could be set free if you (including myself) really search it out in the Word Of God…It is The Truth and its the truth that you know that will set you free.
This is one of Jesus’s most important teachings and has not been taught well in the body of Christ. now there are people who have taught on Forgiveness and have done ok and maybe have helped people to forgive
and it starts with Mark 11:20-26.
Now I know that there has been other teaching on this however I believe God has revealed this to me on what it means.
1) Jesus said in verse 22 Have faith in God…
2) in verse 23 it says be thou cast into the Sea…also found in Luke 17:6 and be thou planted in the sea
3) then in verse 24 It starts out with Therefore….Therefore is a transition statement meaning what i’ve just said goes with what I am going to say next.
4) Verse 25 says AND when you stand praying, FORGIVE…
5) 26 says but if ye do not Forgive neither will your Father….
When Jesus was teaching here on Mark 11:23 he was using an exaggeration to explain Faith.
This is not about commanding angels or claiming cars and boats and stuff….and the focus here is not about healing, GASP!!!
It does say in Joshua 1:8 about meditating…muttering and speaking the word is correct to renew the mind and to believe God for healing.
There are other verses on speaking the word and focusing on God to have faith for healing but not here. and I will prove it to you in the word of God alone.
A lot of preachers say to their flock to search the word but will always believe and say they know what it means themselves above what others say. It is biblical to build ones faith up in God. Now speaking the word and focusing on God is biblical However the question you have to ask your self is, has any one ever spoke to a mountain or a tree in all of history and it was thrown into the sea? never, not even once….
The mountains and trees if you will, what Jesus was talking about is unforgiveness.
That’s why when Peter came to Jesus in Mathew 18:21 Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times?
Jesus responded in verse 22 saying…Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven.
So what Jesus is saying to do in mark 11:23 and in luke 17:6 ? we are to speak to the thoughts or words from the enemy and or people (not that you yell in a persons face) that have hurt us and you being reminded of the pain and hurt is to say IT IS FORGIVEN and to command the unforgiveness and sins that people have committed against us to go into the sea..you may have to say it over and over and over again…this is why Jesus said seventy times seven. that equals to 490 times.
Revelation 12:10 says….. And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.
And of coarse God says to the devil It is forgiven..forgiven, forgiven ,forgiven….cast into the sea..
1 st john 1:9 say’s if we confess our sins he is faithful to forgive us and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness
I had alway’s wondered why “lead us not into temptation” was in the lord’s prayer….
Matt 6:13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil…it means what it says…it does not mean anything else…
Matt 18:34 And his lord was wroth, and delivered him to the tormentors, till he should pay all that was due unto him.
Matt 18:35 So likewise shall my heavenly Father do also unto you, if ye from your hearts forgive not every one his brother their trespasses.
God himself does not tempt or torment people…he has others (devils)to do that…1st Kings 22:20-23 God set Ahab up to kill him by using a lying spirit…read it, its in your bible!
more proof here in the word about speaking to any hurt or unforgiveness and tossing it into the sea…
Micah 7:19 He will turn again, he will have compassion upon us; he will subdue our iniquities; and thou wilt cast all their sins into the depths of the sea.
Revelation 4:6 And before the throne [there was] a sea of glass like unto crystal: and in the midst of the throne, and round about the throne, [were] four beasts full of eyes before and behind.
IN Solomon’s Temple a sea is mentioned as well….
1st kings 17:23 And he made a molten sea, ten cubits from the one brim to the other: [it was] round all about, and his height [was] five cubits: and a line of thirty cubits did compass it round about.
and then in verse 44 And one sea, and twelve oxen under the sea;….
the brazen sea was where the Priest wash themselves completely…
here is a qoute from Spurgeon
“And in the temple, we understand, there was a great brazen sea in which the priests did wash themselves, and there were other brazen seas, in which they washed the lambs and bullocks when they were offered. In heaven there is a great laver, in which all our souls have been washed, “for they have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the lamb.” Now Christ himself prepares this sacred sea. He filled it with blood from his own veins.
So You see hear People that God’s word is above what any preacher says about scripture…. we all need to repent and read the word of God for ourselves…Amen!
I know that there are other steps in dealing with conflict and sin between people but the focus here is to say in your heart and out loud it is forgiven over and over.every time it pops up and to admit to God when you feel angry about it…
I apologize for not having the writing skills as some do! I will get better….
