Step 12: I will allow the Holy Spirit to do a work in me...

I will allow the Holy Spirit to do a work in me so that I may present the love and forgiveness of God in all aspects of my life.

Ezekiel 36:27 And I will put my Spirit in you and move you to follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws. (NIV)

          Now that you have gone through the steps of forgiveness, you are at the final step. This step entails allowing the Spirit of Jehovah El Nose to reign in all areas of your life, so that you can show love, kindness and forgiveness to all who cross your path. The Word of God lets us know that we are to not only be hearers, but doers of the Word. Therefore, we must now put to practice all that we have learned. James 1:22 Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. (NIV)
                  Jehovah El Nose has given us the tools we now need to be in alignment with His will. Forgiveness is NOT an option, but it is a requirement in order to enter Heaven. Therefore, we must allow His Spirit to reign on the inside of us in order for His perfect will to be done in our lives. Once you make the choice to forgive, because it truly is indeed a CHOICE, Jehovah El Nose can work wonders in all the other areas of your life. Genesis 3:7 If you do what is right, will you not be accepted? But if you do not do what is right, sin is crouching at your door; it desires to have you, but you must master it. (NIV)

                  Many people have not progressed as far as they could in life due to unforgiveness. They have carried it with them year after year. They have held on to the memories of who and what did them wrong. However, Jehovah El Nose wants you to now RELEASE the bags that have weighed you down. In order for you to rise higher in Him, you must LET GO of the weights keeping you bound. A kite cannot take off in the wind if it has weights attached to it. The wind is there, but the kite will never take off in it until the weights are released. It is the same way with Jehovah El Nose and forgiveness. He is waiting to help you soar, all you have to do is Let Go and Let GOD. 2 Chronicles 20:15 He said: “Listen, King Jehoshaphat and all who live in Judah and Jerusalem! This is what the Lord says to you: ‘Do not be afraid or discouraged because of this vast army. For the battle is not yours, but God’s.’ ” (NIV)

Step 11: I will continuously pray that Jehovah El Nose Helps me to forgive myself and others.

I will continuously pray that Jehovah El Nose will help me to forgive myself and others.

Ephesians 3:16-19 (16)I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, (17)so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, (18)may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, (19)and to know this love that surpasses knowledge -- that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. (NIV)

                  Jesus had a great mission to accomplish when He came to earth, and that was to save mankind from their sins. The pieces were in place and all that had been prophesied by the prophets of old was coming to past. The Savior of the world was about to die, but not before being betrayed by one of his own disciples for thirty pieces of silver. Zechariah 11:12-13 I told them, “If you think it best, give me my pay; but if not, keep it.” So they paid me thirty pieces of silver. And the Lord said to me, “Throw it to the potter” – the handsome price at which they priced me! So I took the thirty pieces of silver and threw them into the house of the Lord to the potter. (NIV) Prophecy had to be fulfilled and Judas Iscariot, one of Jesus’ disciples, would play a major role in it coming to past.  
                  Jesus spent 3 ½ years teaching, preaching, and performing miracles wherever He went. He had chosen twelve disciples to accompany Him during that time. They were not just mere companions, but they would have a great commission of spreading the gospel to all the world. Jesus took great care to teach them about God and what He expected from those who would place their trust in Him. Nevertheless, one of them would yield to the temptation of the devil, and turn his Master over to his sworn enemies. Judas, Jesus’ disciple, was doomed for destruction as prophecy had to be fulfilled. Jesus knew that one of his own would betray him, but this did not keep him from choosing Judas as a disciple. John 17:12 While I was with them, I protected them and kept them safe by that name you gave me. None has been lost except the one doomed to destruction so that Scripture would be fulfilled. (NIV)

                  The religious believers hated Jesus and plotted to kill him. They knew that the best way to get to Jesus would be from within after being approached by Judas. Matthew 26:14-16 (14)Then one of the Twelve – the one called Judas Iscariot – went to the chief priests (15)and asked, “What are you willing to give me if I hand him over to you?” So they counted out for him thirty silver coins. (16)From then on Judas watched for an opportunity to hand him over. (NIV) The devil would have had to be in possession of Judas’ mind in order for him to even think of doing such a wicked thing. How could anyone betray a loving Savior who had done only good to all who were around. Judas had witnessed first-hand the dead being raised to life, the miracle of the five thousand being fed, the lame healed, the deaf being able to talk, and countless other miracles. Yet, the enemy was able to get a hold of him to take money in exchange for the ultimate betrayal.

                Judas betrayed Jesus with the kiss of death and He was taken away to be crucified. Mark 14:44 Now the betrayer had arranged a signal with them: “The one I kiss is the man; arrest him and lead him away under guard.” (NIV) A disciple, follower, companion, and even so-called friend was the one to open the doors for Jesus to be killed by His enemies. After he had done this wicked deed, he felt what many may call, “buyer’s remorse.” He knew that he had betrayed the One who loved him most and guilt came all over him. He attempted to return the money that he had received, but those who made the evil deal with him did not even want the money back. They had used him to accomplish what they wanted. You can probably imagine that they did not want to have anything else to do with him. After all, who would trust a traitor?
                Thoughts of what he had done ran across Judas mind. He possibly thought about the anger that he would face from the other disciples. He may have pondered as to the thought of seeing Jesus upon the cross for a crime he had not committed. Judas may have considered the possibility that he would be a total outcast from society and that his life would never be the same. Even more sadder was the fact of feeling that what he had done was UNFORGIVEABLE. This led him to do the unthinkable. He committed suicide and that was an act of no return. Matthew 27:3-5 (3)When Judas, who had betrayed him, saw that Jesus was condemned, he was seized with remorse and returned the thirty silver coins to the chief priests and the elders. (4)”I have sinned,” he said, “for I have betrayed innocent blood.” “What is that to us?” they replied. “That’s your responsibility.” (5)So Judas threw the money into the temple and left. Then he went away and hanged himself. (NIV)

                Jehovah El Nose would have forgiven Judas if he had only asked. Jehovah El Nose is a forgiving God and even when we are undeserving, He is always there to give us a second chance. All we have to do is ask. Judas was unable to forgive himself and therefore, he felt that he could not be forgiven by Jehovah El Nose. If only he had asked for forgiveness, his testimony would have been the most powerful among all of the other disciples including Peter.

                When encountering unforgiveness, we have to also make sure that we forgive ourselves as well. You can only truly be forgiven and allow forgiveness to take place in your heart if you forgive yourself about a previous discretion as well. There comes a point when you have to just LET IT GO! This means that you do not continue to carry it around, but release it to the One who can package and send it to the depths of the sea with no return address. It’s over, done with, and now you can move forward. Jehovah El Nose will forgive you and now it is time for you to forgive YOURSELF. 2 Corinthians 5:17-19 (17)Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come. (18)All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: (19)that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting men’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message or reconciliation. (NIV)

Step 10: I will continue to self-examine in order to ensure that I am not holding Unforgiveness

I will continue to self-examine in order to ensure that I am not holding unforgiveness in my heart.
Hebrews 10:26-27 If we deliberately keep on sinning after we have received the knowledge of the truth, no sacrifice for sins is left, but only a fearful expectation of judgment and of raging fire that will consume the enemies of God. (NIV)
                  Sometimes the hardest thing for people to do is to be honest with themselves. We may tend to say that all is well because we want to believe that it is when in all actuality, our spiritual lives are filled with rotten bones and have the stench of garbage. The Bible lets us know that we must examine ourselves, so they we can be in compliance with the will of God. Lamentations 3:40-42 (40)Let us examine our ways and test them and let us return to the Lord. (41)Let us lift our hearts and our hands to God in heaven, and say: (42)”We have sinned and rebelled and you have not forgiven.” (NIV) Jehovah El Nose desires for His children to return to Him, so that He may bless them. He desires to forgive us of all our sins, but we must first acknowledge when we have not forgiven others. To hold unforgiveness in your heart is to sin against God. Jehovah El Nose can only forgive you once you acknowledge that you are in need of forgiveness. This is why we must examine ourselves before Jehovah El Nose, so that He can show us the hidden things in our hearts. Psalm 26:2 Test me O Lord, and try me, examine my heart and my mind. (NIV)

                  Sometimes we hold on to offenses without realizing it and then a memory of what was done comes back to brings forth a whole new set of demons. Luke 11:24-26 (24)”When an evil spirit comes out of a man, it goes through arid places seeking rest and does not find it. Then it says, ‘I will return to the house I left. (25)When it arrives, it finds the house swept clean and put in order. (26)Then it goes and takes seven other spirits more wicked than itself, and they go in and live there. And the final condition of that man is worse than the first. (NIV) Unforgiveness is indeed a demon. This demon tries to attach itself to an individual for life. It may go away for a while; therefore, the individual is fooled into thinking that they have forgiven all when in fact, the demon has only taken a brief vacation.

                  That rest period may had been a time when Jehovah El Nose was really working on the individual to eliminate the demonic spirit of unforgiveness. Unfortunately, unless a person stays wrapped up in the Lord and allow Him to take complete control, the demon will return and not only come with itself, but more demons attached. This is often displayed when there is a disagreement between two individuals who had the promise of reconciliation, but the offense was once again recalled. Not only was this offense recollected, but other ones were added to the fire to cause a newly restored animosity between the two individuals. Now, the relationship is in worse shape than what it was. It can be compared to a dog returning to its vomit. 2 Peter 2:21-22 It would have been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than to have known it and then to turn their backs on the sacred command that was passed on to them. Of them the proverbs are true: “A dog returns to its vomit,” and, “A sow that is washed goes back to her wallowing in the mud.” (NIV)

                  We must continuously ask Jehovah El Nose to keep our minds and hearts with a forgiving Spirit. This means that once we forgive, we do not keep entertaining the offenses. To do so means that real forgiveness has not taken place. Constant prayer and even fasting is required to allow the Holy Spirit to do His work in us. No one is able to forgive on their own. Nevertheless, Jehovah El Nose gives us the tools that we need to successfully forgive and to bury the offense in the depths of the sea. Micah 7:19 You will again have compassion on us: you will tread our sins underfoot and hurl all our iniquities into the depths of the sea. (NIV)
