I’m Healed, Therefore I’m Better

Healed eyes see differently. Healed ears hear differently. A healed heart perceives differently. And a healed mind understands what was once so perplexing.

Bible Insights, Matthew Chapter 5:23-24

Matthew Chapter 5:23-24 

 “23 So if you are offering your gift at the Temple altar and you remember there that your brother has something against you, 24 leave your gift where it is by the altar, and go, make peace with your brother. Then come back and offer your gift.”

The burden of reconciliation and peace IS ON YOU, when you are made aware of something that someone has against you! It is by NO coincidence that reconciliation is directly linked to your giving. While it is true that not everyone will respond favorably to your efforts to make peace with them, your tithes and offerings are as worthless as ashes if you DO NOT MAKE EVERY EFFORT to seek the forgiveness of those you have offended!

OUCH, that gives me a totally different perspective on financial prosperity! Of course, there is always the option to pursue material wealth through the world’s system, in which case reconciliation is not a requirement. However, if we are going to seek to INHERIT wealth from The Kingdom of Heaven, we must give tithes and offerings, which we learn through this scripture, are null and void without appropriate steps taken toward reconciliation. And the most important part of this scripture is the clause that says, “if a brother has something against you“. This text is not about you “passively forgiving” someone who has hurt you. This is about you going to SEEK OUT those that you have offended or sinned against, when you have knowledge that they have not forgiven you, and you have never authentically and fully attempted to make it right. This is a very deliberate and calculated decision to face the rejection and/or persecution of someone who you know has an issue with you and perhaps even a hatred for you. THIS IS SOOO HEAVY!!!

Remorse vs. Repentance: Start Your Year Off Right!!!

Feeling sorry for the outcome, does not equate taking accountability for the actions that caused it. The countdown to the new year has passed, and the excitement of that first moment is fading. Whether or not crossing the threshold into 2014 is going to also mean crossing the threshold into a new season, is completely predicated on the depth of your repentance (complete turning away) from all of your rebellion in 2013.

Happy New Year and Happy New Life to all of you determined to lay aside every weight and sin that so easily beset you in 2013: To those of you who deleted numbers from your phone, got rid of bad habits, overcame addictions, moved away from dead activities and dead relationships, took control of your desires, pulled out all roots of bitterness, and completely committed yourself to the Will of YHWH God for your life!

To the rest of you, all I can say is, “I wouldn’t want to be you!” because I can’t wish a Happy New Year to someone who has already decided to be miserable by default! The wages of sin is death, and death brings mourning. Thus, to choose rebellion and stubbornness, is to choose misery.  I’m not sugar-coating it because I hope this dose of truth is enough to get you to take care of what you need to take care of in the first days of 2014 (not months, or weeks, but DAYS), in order to start, not just a New Year, but also a NEW SEASON!!!

If you don’t like the results you got in 2013, remember that to get different results in 2014, means taking different actions!

Same actions, Same results — New actions, New season!

Apostolic Blessings and Favor to all of those who have properly positioned themselves for 2014 to be the year of Dreams!!!
