"Reflections Upon Reflections" [of The Father's Heart]
...."You, in Your great compassion, did not forsake them in the wilderness; The pillar of cloud did not leave them by day, to guide them on their way, or the pillar of fire by night, to light for
them the way in which they were to go".... Nehemiah 9:19 NASB
THE "TOXICITY" OF UNFORGIVENESS [OFFENSE]
Words of prophecy:
The maintaining of "willful" pride [offense] is a breeding ground for the "spirit of unforgiveness" to work in one's life.
...."Love [God's love in us] does not
insist on its own rights or its own way, for it is not self-seeking; it is not touchy or fretful or resentful; it takes no account of the evil done to it [it pays no attention to a suffered wrong]".... 1 Corinthians 13:5 The Amplified Translation
...."Pursue peace with all men, and the sanctification without which no one will see the Lord. See to it that no one comes short of the grace of God; that no root of bitterness
springing up causes trouble, and by it many be defiled".... Hebrews 12:14-15 NASB
"toxic"- acting as or having the effect of a poison;
One of the key elements of one "abiding" [dwelling]in the place of being continually cleansed from ALL defilement of flesh and spirit is for them to hold absolutely NO unforgiveness [resentment, bitterness, offense] in their heart. For unforgiveness [offense]
in any of its forms is both "toxic" [spiritually speaking] and an open door for the Enemy to formulate and "establish" his vile schemes in one's life.
us cleanse ourselves from everything that contaminates and defiles body and spirit, and bring [our] consecration to completeness in the [reverential] fear of God".... 2 Corinthians 7:1 The Amplified Translation
Father, we thank You and praise You that You have raised us up a people who are ever seeking to remain cleansed from ALL defilement of flesh
[soul, body] and spirit. And we declare it DONE [on an ongoing basis], in the Name of Jesus - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.
