THE BEGINNING OF FORGIVENESS

You either belong to YOU or you belong to GOD.

GOD all through Scripture (Old & New Testaments) uses topical Dualism to contrast and make clear the choices human beings have during their short earthly physical existence on Planet Earth.
The Truth of Scripture (pre-written history) makes clear the earthly Consequences and Eternal Consequences of living your life according to your will and not GODS WILL.

Your life is full of choices. Most of your choices not only affect you but also have earthly repercussions on your family and others you have relationships with. BUT there is ONLY ONE CHOICE that has Eternal Consequences for you ALONE.

The following list of opposites represent two roads to two different locations. GOD uses the theme of dualism within the lives of the people we read about within HIS BIBLE to teach us life lessons that will help us avoid our pain and the pain our choices cause others.

The Cover of the Bible is the door to your journey to two destinations. Its pages speak TRUTH, while warning of the Consequences of not obeying the messages written by GOD specifically to YOU.

I put the following together so you could begin reading the Bible for 10 minutes a day keeping in mind the list below. These two lists represent your journey to your Forever Place. These Themes are ALL throughout the Scriptures. Treat your body with a cookie when you begin. Then continue to read and let GOD FEED YOUR SOUL.

DUALISM THEMES:

Food: Earthly (nourish flesh) or Heavenly (nourish soul = eternal life)
Dimensions: Physical or Spiritual
Roads: Wide or Narrow
People: Lost or Found
Types: Many or Few
Cities: Earthly Jerusalem or New Jerusalem
Bodies: Physical or Spiritual
Feeling: Pain or JOY
Actions: Evil or Good
Results: Chaos or Order
Church: Tares or Wheat
CROSS: Unrepentant Thief or Repentant Thief
Wills: My Will or Gods Will
Results: To Sin or NOT to SIN?
Eternal: Death or Life
Forever: Hell or Heaven
Greeting: Darkness or SONshine

Desperation: No Faith + No Mercy + No Grace = NO Hope = Eternity
without God
HIS PEACE: FAITH in JESUS + Mercy + Grace = HOPE = ETERNITY
WITH GOD

TGIF: THANK GOD I’M FORGIVEN !

REPENTANCE & FORGIVENESS

These two words are part of our language because they come from the BIBLE. Both words are defined by THE ONE TRUE GOD who created us. Each is exemplified by the Parables taught by Jesus and the historical accounts of the people in Scripture.

Throughout the Past we could see these words lived out before us. Today these two words have almost been eliminated from our language and our actions. There is an Ancient Word that began in the Garden of Eden that has remained throughout time as the nemesis of both Repentance and Forgiveness. This word has become the foundation of the New Tower of Babel. PRIDE ! ! !

The author of this word is the creator of Evil…Satan. This one word carries within it an Eternal Death Sentence from GOD for ALL whose actions show that their hearts are filled with Pride. Jesus says to you, the one filled with Pride…….

“I have this against you, because you have left your first love and have hated Me. If only you had REPENTED I would have FORGIVEN you, but you hated My Law and would have none of my ways.”

Therefore my friend you will receive what your ACTIONS DESERVE. For now, you are on GODS Layaway Plan called “SIN NOW and PAY LATER.” Like all debts, payment ultimately will come due.

Repent Forgive
