Matthew 18:35, 19:1-235 So also my heavenly Father will do to every one of you, if you do not forgive your brother from your heart.”
1 Now when Jesus had finished these sayings, he went away from Galilee and entered the region of Judea beyond the Jordan. 2 And large crowds followed him, and he healed them there.
The Scriptures are written with the Help of the Holy Spirit. Not only does the chronological report of Matthew explain what the disciple called later saw, this explains Jesus working in his soul to understand the wondrous works of God.
The Holy Spirit connects the teachings of Abba.
Forgiveness creates as circle and makes wellness, wholeness, holiness.
When the Exodus is heard about, God says some very good and memorable points about the simplification of who God is. Heartwarming and to the point. God is creating the more clear relationship.
When the Second Exodus - the Exile to Babylon occurs - God is very loquacious about what He has found to be the problems with their relationship. And the exiles work to do the goodness they honestly find in themselves and in relationship to God. The miracles are not like the Grand Exodus and are more of the nature of "Believe God. Trust God." God helps them to understand they bring His Light to the nations. Ezekiel says the goal is not just to return to Home, the goal is to build today that our works, words, deeds help us to have peace in times of peace. And to be covered in God's Mercy. Then they return to Jerusalem with Moses made Temple Tools and a foreign Empire helping rebuild. And they begin to enact rules over relationship and work and busy-ness.
Father God lets this continue and eventually sends in His Only Son to say, see and understand the Holy Spirit and Light of the world in each soul. Now save them all through Jesus Christ. God has put enormous effort into the communication, the relationship, the sacrifice of Himself to cause the bridge. This is Father God demonstrating - His Grace. His Love. His Mercy. This is the forgiveness of God.
Father God's love - something unearned. Father God's Grace - to obtain this we need Faith. God says He alone calls this inside us to call us to Father God. Hope - the belief prayer to Father God is always working and we will always call upon Jesus the Lord for ourselves and others. Creating in us all Jesus - God of Love.
With care and hope and faith and love, we lift up those we Love to You. Covered in the name of Jesus. You know our prayers before we speak them. We speak them to have our hearts touch Your's.
Touch those we Love with Your Love. Let Your Love warm our path and the paths of our communities, Churches, Nation. We rejoice to know 2/3rd's of the world calls You Jesus the God of Love.
Amen in our Jesus.
