Spiritual Warfare Skill – Forgiveness
Unforgiveness is like ‘carrying unnecessary load as a soldier in a battlefield’. How can you march unrestricted and fight the enemy? As a result, one can end up getting injured for carrying too much weight and often times dangerous for the people around. These injuries are attributed to being overwhelmed in our lives with difficulties, afflictions and setbacks related to our spiritual lives. Though, is 24 hours in the day ,we still find excuses about things of this world to read our Bibles – The Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth- filled with The Holy Spirit [Ruach ha-Kodesh] instructions to fight our daily battles. We have no time to pray or dedicate time to do fasting; or perhaps do any form of ‘charity’ work as the book of Acts 20:35, instructs all children of G-d. Is it setbacks in your finances relating to debts, health issues , bereavement, infertility, family breakdown or conflicts, educational problems, divorce, your mental health from anxiety or depression, or perhaps you’re going through the trauma from sexual harassment or an assault in the past, setbacks in career or business? just to name a few. Brothers and sisters, the way out these difficulties may simply be attributed to our unwillingness to forgive the people that have wronged us- we are now holding pain of the past, anger, bitterness and grudges in our hearts now an invisible spiritual burden.
If one prays with an unforgiving heart, then basically there is no ‘transmission’ with the Holy Spirit [Ruach ha-Kodesh]; is more or less like talking to yourself . Our heart, is a Spirit- the prayer room [the temple of God] and the contact point with our Sovereign LORD’ [Adonai ELOHIM]. Unforgiveness is therefore a sin which becomes a significant barrier between your heart and G-d. Jesus Christ [Yeshua], gave us the skill on how to win our battles and achieve anything we want in our lives in the book of Mark 11:25 – He said, ”whenever you stand praying, if you have anything against anyone, forgive him, so that your Father in heaven will also forgive you your wrongdoing”.
Without a free-spirited heart in prayer, you cannot fight the enemy with the ‘The Word of G-d [Yeshua] ‘-our only weapon in all battles. Acts 15:8, emphasizes that, Adonai Elohim knows and screens our heart ‘like an X-ray’ before sending the comforter – the Holy Spirit [Ruach ha-Kodesh] to help us. If we are unwilling or unable to forgive others, holding grudges, anger, bitterness and pain of the past in our hearts; is basically ‘leaving your weapon to get dirty in a battlefield’. Ephesians 4:30-32 tells us that ‘‘and do not grieve the Ruach (Spirit) of G-d, with whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ G-d forgave you’‘. How could your Prayers be powerful enough to break through all the opposition in the Heavenly places and get to the Throne room of G-d? In the book of Daniel 10:13 , the Angel sent by G-d to answer Daniels prayers said ”But the prince of the Persian kingdom resisted me twenty-one days. Then Angel Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me, because I was detained there with the king of Persia”. If our prayers are not powerful enough- filled with Holy Ghost fire, there will always be opposition in the heavenly places of darkness capable of stopping answered prayers. Brothers and Sisters an unforgiving heart can not penetrate the spirit of darkness with their prayers.
Forgiveness is one of the most difficult things to do, yet the most powerful of all skills required as a soldier of Jesus Christ [Yeshua]. Our commander in chief said in Matthew 18, that to enter into the kingdom of G-d we have to be like a child. So, let’s go back to the basics in our spiritual lives. during the Lord’s prayer we ask G-d to forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. In Matthew 6:14-15, Yeshua went on further to say, ”For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins. Looking at this in a mathematical spectrum, not only is this a covenant with G-d, but a rule in the heavens [Genesis 1:1]. Yeshua also said in John 16:33 that, “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” You can not live in this world and not get offended or get hurt- The people most closest to you will be your worst enemy [Matthew 10:36]. Take note, these are the same people the enemy-satan uses as his secret weapon, so it can becomes very difficult to forgive them. You wonder why such a close friend, colleague, partner, child, parent, sibling hurt you so badly.
Unforgiveness is one of the secret weapons used by the enemy to trap us and so he is able to throw afflictions into our lives. Unforgiveness is a sin and if you live in sin, you’re in darkness and unable to see clearly. As a result of being in darkness, it facilitates the enemies attack options and makes it very easy to be afflicted with sorrow. One have to learn the skill to forgive and be able to move into light as quickly as possible. Is very clear here brothers and sisters, the enemy cannot fight you in the light for ”The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overpowered it” [John 1:5]. The world is full of afflictions and setbacks because of unforgiveness. There are sons and daughters holding grudges against family members for years; I have heard in so many occasions in the United Kingdom ; ‘I don’t talk to my dad , I don’t talk to my mum’ ; ‘ I just can’t stand him or her’ and so on .This vicious cycle of unforgiveness all around us has allowed the enemy to trap so many people. Pick up the Phone if you still reading up to this point my brother/ sister, and make that call. Forgive and reconcile, this may be your breakthrough to everything you have been praying for all this time.
When we choose to forgive, we receive peace and freedom, but also turn the person who wronged us over to our commander in chief [Yeshua] to work on them- is like passing over a prisoner of war-’leaving it for God’ -that’s when powerful miracles happen. The Psalmist tells us in 103:2-3, Praise the Lord, my soul, and forget not all his benefits— who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases. Even at the point of death our commander in chief Yeshua, showed us the power of forgiveness -in the Holy Scriptures of Luke 23:34, Jesus Christ said on the cross, …‘Father, forgive them, because they do not know what they are doing”… The final ‘ticket’ to purchase before you can enter the kingdom of G-d is to forgive all the people that have wronged you, even if they are unaware of what they have done to you. Jesus Christ (Yeshua) died for us and G-d forgave us of all our transgressions – that’s why we have freedom and salvation if we believe in Yeshua as the son of G-d, the Messiah (Yeshua HaMashiach).
Remember to watch your tongue for is a powerful weapon as the book of Proverbs 18:21 tells us; it has the power of life and death and you’ll eat it’s fruit. Is the same tongue we use to call on ‘The WORD’, “be delivered in the name of Yeshua” and the kingdom of demons and evil spirits in the heavenly places tremble. Avoid saying ‘you will never forgive’ – this is a ‘dark’ pathway the enemy uses to connect you with afflictions and setbacks in your life. 2 Samuel 6:7 clearly shows our heavenly father also gets angry because HE is a G-D of Justice . Is okay to get angry because G-d created us in HIS own image; as is written in the Scriptures, Genesis 1:26. The Bible went further to warn us in Ephesians 4:26-27 that, ”be angry, yet do not sin, don’t let the sun go down on your anger’, nor give the devil a foothold”. The truth is that, it is not easy to forgive – ‘one has to look at forgiveness as an act of peeling an onion- need to forgive over and over again and often times with tears in the eyes associated with pain‘. The only solution is to Fast and Pray if you’re struggling to forgive someone or people that have wronged you ; during that process, Yeshua will see your faith and provide you with the grace to completely forgive who ever has wronged you. Remember in Luke 5:20, ‘‘When Jesus saw their faith, he said, “Man, your sins are forgiven.”
“The yoke of unforgiving spirit in my life is broken in Jesus Christ name today! “Give me the Grace ADONAI Elohim to be free from unforgiving evil spirits today ” Amen Amen Amen.

Accepting Yeshua [Jesus Christ] in your heart
There is a Promise in the Holy Scriptures at John 3:16, ‘For God so loved the world, that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life’.
Jesus Christ foretold the ‘signs of the end of time’ in Matthew 24, …the Good News of the kingdom shall be proclaimed in the the whole world as a testimony to all nations and then the end will come.
All you have to do now is accept YESHUA– Jesus Christ as your Messiah in your heart; and if you do this willingly this day at this very hour, you will be saved just like the criminal on the cross with Yeshua in Luke 23:42-43, ”And he said, “Yeshua, remember me when You come into Your kingdom.”Yeshua said to him, “Amen, I tell you, today you shall be with Me in Paradise.”
There is no true loving parent that will lock their door in the middle of the night to a rebellious child. They either wait for them to come back or go out looking for them. So what do we expect Our Loving Father HaShem to do? The door to come back into the kingdom of G-d is open for you. Yeshua is the only way to the Father. Is never too late to be saved and there is no sin ever committed that, God can not forgive, if you willingly come to HIM with repentance.
Now tell someone you have accepted Jesus Christ as your personal saviour today; Yeshua called everyone to Himself publicly.
Yeshua is the Lion of the tribe of Judah that was slain for all your sins and with HIM you will face no judgement on the last day, no matter your religion, gender, race or believe. The Holy Scriptures of Revelation 5 promises us that, by Yeshua’s blood shed on the cross we are all saved. Just believe…
God bless you
Amen, Amen, Amen
