Accepting Yahweh’s Forgiveness

“Accepting Yahweh’s Forgiveness” is the first part of the video series Spirituality and Heart Matters. Have you perhaps done something in life that you feel you cannot be forgiven for? Or do you perhaps know someone and they feel that they have done something awful that they cannot be forgiven for?

Perhaps they murdered someone or perhaps raped someone. Perhaps they have had an abortion. Perhaps their marriage failed, or they did not raise their children the right way, or their children did not get raised in the faith.

For whatever reason, they feel this enduring feeling of doubt, guilt, or shame. Or they feel something is wrong with them. They do not know what, but somehow or other, there is something separating them from Yahweh’s shalom.

Not only can these things affect our relationship with the Most High, they can also affect our relationship with our neighbors. Therefore, we need to learn how to deal with these kinds of things. That is why in this presentation we are going to talk about how to accept Yahweh’s forgiveness.

Commandments and love

When we talk about Scripture there are certain themes that show up time and time again. One of these main themes is Yahweh’s commandments (or His laws). Because Yahweh is a Great King. Therefore, He has laws for his people to live by that we might live in an orderly way.

Another major theme is Yahweh’s love for His people. Because His people are always breaking His laws, He sent His Son to die, to take the penalty for our sin. And the reason He died to take the penalty for our sin is so that we might receive His forgiveness.

We are going to see a major theme here. We are going to talk about the relationship between Yahweh’s love and Yahweh’s forgiveness.

  1. Yahweh’s commandments (or His laws).
  2. Yahweh’s love for His people.

Greatest commandments

But now if we think about it, if we commanded to to love our neighbors as we love ourselves, then does it not make a big difference how well we love ourselves? Let us just say we love ourselves completely, let us say we love ourselves 100 percent. Then when we go to love our neighbors as we love ourselves, we can also extend that love. We can love our neighbors one hundred percent also.

But if we do not love ourselves very well, mabye we love ourselves thirty percent or forty percent, then when we go to love our neighbors as we love ourselves, we can only love them in a limited way also.

Mattityahu (Matthew) 22:37-40:
37 “Yeshua said to him [tells us], ‘You shall love Yahweh your Elohim with all your heart, with all of your soul, and with all of your mind [or our strength].’
38 This is the first and the great commandment.
39 And the second commandment is like it: ‘You shall love our neighbors as yourself.’
40 Upon these two commandments hang all the Torah and the Prophets.”

Yahweh’s forgiveness

If Yeshua tells us to love one another as we love ourselves, then would this rule also apply to Yahweh’s forgiveness? If we do not know how to receive Yahweh’s forgiveness, are we going to know how to extend His forgiveness to others?

We are going to see that accepting Yahweh’s forgiveness is going to impact our relationship with others, as well as our relationship with Yahweh Elohim. Please join us for “Accepting Yahweh’s Forgiveness”.

Mattityahu (Matthew) 6:9-13:
9 “In this manner therefore, pray: Our father who art in heaven, Your name be set-apart.
10 Your kingdom come. Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
11 Give us this day our daily bread.
12 And forgive us our trespasses [our sins] as we forgive those who trespass [who sin] against us.
13 And lead us not into temptation, But deliver us from the evil one. For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amein.”

Mattityahu (Matthew) 6:14-15
14 “For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.
15 But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your heavenly Father forgive you your trespasses.”

Marqaus (Mark) 11:25-26
25 “And whenever you stand praying, if you have anything against anyone, forgive him that your Father in heaven may also forgive you your trespasses.
26 But if you do not forgive neither will your Father in heaven forgive you your trespasses.”

Luqa (Luke) 17:3-4 Yeshua says:
3 “Take heed to yourselves. If your brother sins against you, rebuke him; and if he repents, forgive him.
4 And if he sins against you up to seven times in a day, and seven times in a day returns to you, saying, ‘I repent’, you shall forgive him.”
