I hear this or that was a “mistake”. What is a “mistake”?
A MISTAKE IS SOMETHING THAT HAPPENS BECAUSE OF AN ACTION OF OUR OWN THAT HAS A NEGATIVE CONSEQUENCE THAT IS UNEXPECTED AND UNWANTED AND UNINTENDED. IT HAPPENED ALMOST ACCIDENTALLY.
Because of a teaching in “church” about “forgiveness” people run around wreaking havoc on others with full intention and forethought dispensing destructions on their neighbors and fellow man with full intent and forethought to do evil and when it is found out to be wrong for whatever reason it is said “they made a mistake”.
They made an abomination before GOD punishable by eternal death (to which the satanists say “come on in it is just fine over here) condemnation and damnation. The pure destruction of their souls just like they planned and plotted and carried out against another.
So what about “forgiveness”. Is it real? I would ask is it really wanted? The ones I have experienced recently would not want ‘forgiveness’ they would arrogantly demand their actions be judged as righteous and the victims as witless losers who deserve everything they did to them. Or arrogant “christians” who dump all their abominations on Jesus of Nazareth and dance in the street at their freedom from consequences claimed in his blood. This actually makes me sick to my stomach, the scorning of the work of the cross and the blood of the Lamb.
There is no “forgiveness” without true “repentance”. Repentance is a coming to full awareness of what you did and who you are that allowed you to do such an act of pure wonton destruction, deciding that is not what you want to do, coming to Jesus with full confession asking to be cleansed of the evil in your heart, accepting his terms for the expiation of the wanton destruction, AND MAKING REPARATIONS TO YOUR VICTIMS FOR THE DAMAGES YOU HAVE DONE.
THERE IS NO FORGIVENESS WITHOUT FULL REPARATIONS TO THE VICTIMS FOR ALL THE DAMAGES YOU HAVE DONE AND TEN TIMES MORE. IF YOU STOLE $100 OR CAUSE $100 IN DAMAGES YOU MUST REPLACE $1000 IT IS WRITTEN.
Then and only then can you be “forgiven” for a “mistake”. An accidental damage to another.
When it comes to full intent and forethought, that is another issue entirely. In most cases there is no way to fix what has been done. The damages cannot be repaired. So the only thing that is open to be done is the complete change in the one who perpetrated the damages on the other. This is the work of the One called Holy. AKA The Holy Spirit. If GOD commands it that person can be given a new heart. Old things pass away. DIE …… and behold all things become new……LIFE.
There is no such thing as a quick fix like “sorry” or “that was a mistake”. We are to live among one another doing no harm to anyone. Helping each other when ever we can. This is the picture of the New Heaven and The New Earth.
