Forgiveness

COMMENTARY: Jesus Christ, God's first son, taught us this prayer:
"Our Father in heaven, hallowed is Your name. May Your kingdom come. 
May Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread
(manna/Eucharist/grace/provision).
Forgive us our trespasses
[sins &/or debts (what we have failed to do or give back)],
as we also forgive our trespassers
[and debtors (who owe us)].  
Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one
."  Matthew 6: 9-13 NAB
[1-Sometimes it is not so much what we have done, but what we have failed to do. 
2-Sometimes it is not so much what we have done as much as it is what we have said or thought. 
3-Sometimes we have responded with negative emotions towards God, others, or self. 
   Father, God, forgive us, yesterday, today, and tomorrow.]

Forgiveness is giving/receiving mercy rather than justice, what one deserves.

John Hampsch in The Healing Power of the Eucharist explains, "When we pray the petition, 'Forgive us our trespasses,' we are asking God to free us from the intrinsic spiritual disorders that have occurred because we have yielded to sin. 
We can also repent of and petition the Lord to erase our ancestors' sins resulting in any family curses. 
When we pray the last petition in the prayer, 'Deliver us from evil,' we are asking God to protect us from the extrinsic spiritual disorders that can be brought on by attacks of the evil one from the outside (the human spirit/soul) or from any evil that we have inherited (such as genetic diseases). It is from this last petition that we get the term 'deliverance prayer,' which is a kind of minor exorcism."

In Matthew 6: 9-15, Jesus tells us to forgive others before we ask God's forgiveness.
In Matthew 6:16, Jesus adds this warning: If you forgive men when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you, but if you do NOT forgive men their sins, your Father will NOT forgive your sins.
In fact, when we can't forgive, when others do not deserve to be forgiven, or after we forgive, then the rage, resentment, bitterness, anger-pops up again, and again, and again.  Let us be reminded that we are forgiving, not for their sakes, necessarily, but more for our own sakes.  We never deserve to be forgiven, yet God forgives us, but often only if we have first forgiven someone else.  Forgiveness is a law of dominos, a chain reaction of forgiveness, the spark that ignites the Holy Spirit into action.  Neither our trespasser nor I myself are deserving of being forgiven.  God did not feel like forgiving on the cross.  I will forgive because Jesus forgave me when He did not feel like doing it.  It hurt Him to forgive me.  It hurts me to forgive.  I will do it anyway, because the bitterness inside me will harm me.  My anger does not hurt my enemy, but only me.  God was smart.  It is we who prefer to listen in our minds, to the broken record of wrongs, instead of doing what Jesus tells us to do.  That is why obedience is best.  Jesus obeyed God and died on the Cross.  It was not a pleasant experience, but the rewards were worth it.  Let us bite the bullet and reject those unforgiving thoughts, no matter how many times they come up to molest us.  If we keep a shopping list of wrongs and repeat them to ourselves or listen to Satan playing them over and over again in our minds, then we are not obeying the 7x11 rule. 
Matthew 18:21 -
Peter came to Jesus and asked, "Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother when he sins against me?  7 times?"  Jesus answered, "I tell you, not 7 times, but 77 times." 
We need to recognize the tricks of Satan.  We need to get out of agreement with him.  We have permission from God to disagree with wrong thoughts or thoughts that are not healthy for us.  We have permission to agree with the words of Jesus and to quote His words each time the enemy comes against us or messes with our mind or messes with our feelings, emotions and hurts.  [We can say, "I recognize you, wrong thoughts.  I bind you in the name of Jesus.  I reject and refuse to accept those negative thoughts.  I place them under the feet of Jesus.  Come Holy Spirit and place Your holy thoughts in my mind.  Thank You.  In Jesus' name I pray.  Amen."]  When we spew out the family underwear/hurts of the past, what negative emotions do we feel/recognize?  Hurt, anger, hatred, victimization, superiority, indignation, contempt?  Well, these are demons we ourselves are releasing into the atmosphere and into the one we are talking to.  Now we are beginning to get a glimpse of how generational demons are passed on.  Through disobedience.  In fact, each time we repeat/tattle an offense done to us, it feeds the demon of offense, so it grows stronger.  [God, we repent of all past self-defense and family gossip.  Father God, we repent of all the evil we have passed on to our family members.  Father God, we ask you to cancel and reverse all curses we have placed on our family due to our big mouth and our disobedience.  Father God, please send Your blessings and Your Holy Spirit to fill those now vacant spots in our lives.  Father, help us to listen and to obey Your soft gentle voice when You in the future tell us to be silent.  When You allow/want us to share, please censor each word and let it be with much love and pure intent/motive.  Oh, we bless and thank You. In Jesus name we pray.  Amen.]
New Life Live radio reminded its listeners of the adage that many of us take the poison of unforgiveness thinking it will kill the other person. 1-800-229-3000

The Stoning of Stephen - acts/7-60.htm 59While they were stoning him, Stephen appealed, “Lord Jesus, receive my spirit.” 60Falling on his knees, he cried out in a loud voice, Lord, do not hold this sin against them.” And when he had said this, he fell asleep. (He died.)

The Crucifixion - luke/23-34.htm - 33When they came to the place called The Skull, they crucified Him there, along with the criminals, one on His right and the other on His left. 34Then Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.” And they divided up His garments by casting lots. 35The people stood watching, and the rulers sneered at Him, saying, “He saved others; let Him save Himself if He is the Christ of God, the Chosen One.”

Beth Moore
in Fully Alive book or Life Today audio with James Robinson explains that forgiving lets us off the hook and not it/him/her (who God, not us, deals vengeance/justice).  We allow God to minister healing to us only to the degree that
we are willing to forgive. Deuteronomy 32:35 KJV   "To Me belongs vengeance and recompense.  Their foot shall slide in due time, for the day of their calamity is at hand."   We need to get to such a place in our attitude (NOT based on feeling) that we plead for God to be merciful to our victimizer, and for God to bless him/her/them, 1st with a personal relationship with Jesus and then with kindness.
Self preservation/justification may be indicative that there is still a self which is alive and kicking and not dead/buried with Christ.  The only One Who's reputation we need to preserve/justify is Jesus Christ, His Dad and His Holy Spirit.  John the Baptist realized that he needed daily to become less in order to daily make more room available for the Trinity.
Perhaps Jesus forgave by releasing from His judgment all offenses (including that of Judas, until such time when offenses would be judged at the end of the world.  There is a difference between judging a thing and a person.  Allow God to be the final judge of all, both things and individuals.)  We can release from our judgment each offense/offender.  That release is like taking a stone out of a bucket on a see-saw.  Each sin is like a rock that weighs us down to hell and each forgiveness is like a rock removed, taking us higher up to heaven.  If we do NOT forgive another or ourselves, then neither can God. 
Matthew 6:14-15 KJVer    If you forgive
men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.  If you forgive not men their trespass, neither will your Father forgive your trespassesWe can prevent God from forgiving both us and others. 
When we do NOT forgive ourselves, even though we have repented, then we are calling God a lier.  That is unbelief, which is sin, perhaps venial; yet a weed is a weed by what ever name.  In sexual intimacy there is a soul tie.  Likewise when an arrow of offense hits our hearts there is an attachment, a burdock, between us.  It needs to be removed/cut off/forgiven/ removed from our judgment immediately, lest an evil spirit have opportunity to trigger/grow/ take root and produce a garden/jungle of bitterness and disease. Like a see-saw, forgiveness has at least 2 sides, your and my.  I have to forgive you, even if you do not ask/repent.  You have to ask, if you are the offender.  God is always a player on the team.  And so is Satan.  Somebody always has the ball or stone.  What I do with the stone will affect me, you, God, and Satan.  Four (4), not one (1).  Steven make one final request.  Acts 7:59-60  NIV    While they were stoning him (to death), Stephen prayed,  "Lord (God), do NOT charge them with this sin."  Jesus also made one final request.  Luke 23:34 (KJV)   Then said Jesus (dying on the cross of crucification), "Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do."

Anger/Hate/Unforgiveness

Sometimes we feel ENTITLED to be angry, bitter, etc.  In God's dictionary, a synonym for entitlement or self-justification is PRIDE or elitism/superiority/arrogance/self-sufficiency/cockiness, which is the sin committed by Satan.  Yes, there is a place for healthy anger, etc. such as God's just anger at evil, and even Jesus got angry at the money changers bilking the congregation.  Remember, one is to be angry at a sin and/or at a demon but NOT at a person.  When we ask God to forgive us, and have neglected to forgive (and pray for) even one person, then God's hands may be tied until we forgive that one person. 
Matthew 6:14-15 KJVer - If you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. 
(However) If you forgive not men their trespass, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.
Matthew 5:43-45 TNAB
43"You have heard the commandment, 'You shall love your countryman, but hate your enemy.' 
44My command to you is, 'Love your enemies, pray for your persecutors'. 
45This will prove that you are sons of your heavenly Father."

Bitterness

Commentary

Bitterness can arise out of not forgiving.  When someone hurts our feelings or wrongs us, especially with the tongue, we can say to ourselves and to the spirit of bitterness, "I will not receive that," meaning we will not allow negative emotions or hurtful things to rock our boat.  "Holy Spirit be our umbrella, so that raindrops of condemnation, falsehoods, and hurtful things can roll right off and not penetrate our heart."
Sometimes the thought of someone whom we have forgiven many times continues to emit bitterness and anger.  Remember, it is Satan who is the real enemy and not the one who triggers those negative emotions.  Let us turn our anger towards the real enemy, so that we may forgive/think/pray with a pure heart.  Satan is the author of all trouble, not man and not God. 

Bitterness can accumulate like poison.  Poison as it accumulates becomes a toxic dump emitting toxins which create disease in individuals, families, and communities.  If we accumulate and incubate  unforgiveness, bitterness, being offended, being wounded, being harmed, or being a victim, and the family of related emotions and attitudes, then we invite danger to reside in our hearts. The danger is mostly ours, resulting in the accumulation fatal diseases.  The longer we wait to dump this toxic compost, the harder it is to be healthy.  A number of men/women contend that negative emotions such as bitterness are in fact demons.  Most people think that emotions are our real feelings, our real selves, when in reality they may be evil spirits expressing themselves (manifesting) and tricking us into depression, suicide, cutting ourselves, etc.  If we agree that negative emotions get us into real trouble, it may be time for us to stop blaming others or blaming ourselves, and say, "In the name of Jesus, get away from me you harmful bitterness (anger, self-pity, etc).  I recognize you.  Go under the feet of Jesus and do not return.  Jesus, cover me with Your blood.  Jesus, send the Holy Spirit Your comforter.  Thank You.  Amen." 
Jesus is the best gardener and the best weeder.  He can pull up all those roots we miss.  When we pull up a dandelion, often we leave a few roots behind.  Jesus can get all the roots.  When a doctor operates on cancer, he only hopes he can get it all, but Doctor Jesus does get it all, hidden deep.  He is able if we are willing to put ourselves under His knife.  When the next weed in our life pops us, we can say, "I reject you.  Go away in the name of Jesus.  Jesus took all the bitterness away. 
You have NO right to return and take root in my life." 
Holy Spirit we pray, "If a negative thought of a person or incident sours our thinking, warn us that we may repent, reject, and turn away quickly." 
We cannot be completely better until all the bitter roots are removed. We must choose to be better or bitter.  When a victim relives an incident he allows the negative hormones to wash over his body creating illnesses.  We need to rid ourselves of any victim mentality allowing illness a legal right to us.  Our past must be placed in God's hands.  We need to let go.  For some this may be a daily letting go.  A daily forgiving.  A moment by moment forgiving.  When we catch a fish, most of us remove the hook and toss the fish back into the water.  Let us toss that hurt/wound back into God's hands.

Bitterness births unforgiveness, which births resentment, which births retaliation, which births anger, which births wrath, which births hatred, which births violence, which births murder. We are accountable to God for our own thoughts, words spoken, and actions.  2nd, as a mate, parent, teacher, etc. we are responsible as an example or mentor. 
If we have repented from our heart and asked God (and relevant relative, for instance) for forgiveness, then any spirit of bitterness, unforgiveness, resentment, retaliation, anger, or hatred still operating in another person is NOT our spiritual responsibility (except to pray).  (Note, sometimes a silent treatment can be a form of revenge, punishment or getting even.)

Forgiving is also releasing the bad guy from obligations and expectations.  Thus, the sins could have been omissions rather than commissions.  For instance there could have been a parent who stood by and did not protect us from an abusive mate.  By forgiving, we no longer require the offender to do what we want or need.  In this instance we are/were wishing for protection.  We may still hurt even when the victimizer is dead.  Now it is long overdue to let them off the hook and get on with living without allowing criticism of them (or even judgment of them) to take up energy and thinking. 
Scripture says, "Vengeance is Mine.  I will repay says the Lord."  (Otherwise we are allowing someone else to control us,
even when they no longer exist in this world or in our neighborhood.)

Brown, Rebecca - http://www.harvestwarriors.com/downloads/February_08.pdf - (The spirit of) "Bitterness brings (the spirit of) defilement into our lives. It is an open doorway for demons to attack us...Not long ago the Lord spoke to me and said, 'When someone is hurt repeatedly, a seed of bitterness is always planted in their heart. If they don’t deal with it immediately, it will grow into a root, then into a full grown plant, turning them away from Me...You cannot deal with it.
You must ask ME to deal with it
. If you will only ask, and forgive the person, then I will quickly move to deal with the bitterness'...Understand that your marriage is going to be the center of Satan’s attack. Because God created men and women to be so different, a lack of understanding of our differences opens the door for husbands and wives to frequently offend each other. These offenses provide legal ground for Satan to attack” (per an angelic encounter cited in article.)

Gonzalez, Flory (1of 5 DVDs) hones in on Forgiveness which appears to be a major root cause of a majority of both gentile and Christian problems including disease, premature death, and lack of spiritual maturity.  Unforgiveness progresses into bitterness and proceeds from there.  Forgiveness is a choice, not a feeling.  The rotten fruit of unforgiveness can begin in the womb, without our even being aware of it.  When we ask, the Holy Spirit can expose it and help us.  (Thus, we need to repent for both our sins and the sins of our ancestors.  Flory was mentored under Mercedes, deceased dynamic twin sister of Ana.)

Jane Hamon – 8/8/2016 - http://d3tnb2mam8l2qt.cloudfront.net/sites/default/files/IS868Transcript_HamonA.pdf
JANE: I just wanted a yellow kitchen.  So that night when I dreamed though, I wassitting in my beautiful new yellow kitchen when all of a sudden the vines started growing out from under the paint.  I said, “Oh, my God, what's happening.  Oh, my goodness.”  The voice of the Lord said to me in the dream, He said, ”This is what happens when you just cover up the things that are too difficult for you to deal with; they grow back.”  Can you see how God used the symbol of the vine to represent, the scripture talks about the root of bitterness or the things that spring up and trouble you and defile manyThings perhaps in my life that maybe I just kind of pushed to the side, covered it up…when God said, listen, “I need to go back and deal with those issues in your heart, otherwise they're going to spring up and they 're going to trouble you and probably defile many.”  So God had me look at what was happening there and knew that it was something that God needed to deal with my heart about (now in this season of my life).

When someone is on the verge of salvation, sometimes the enemy will manifest
negatively to get us to be offended, unforgiving, judgmental and not pray for the victim.

Kemp, Tony - http://sidroth.org/television/tv-archives/tony-kemp-0  video 4/12/2016

TONY: This angel appears.  It was a surprise. He let me know that he was there on assignment and that his purpose was to bring the purpose of God into my life and in the life of every person that the Father wants to bless.  He let me know his reason for being and that there were many, many breakthrough angels.  Because in Chronicles 14, David had a battle with the enemy and he defeated the enemy, and he called the name with the place the Lord God of the breakthrough. He talked about how God would go before him and clear the way. When the Father’s blessing comes into a life, marriage, family, or finances, God the Father sends this angel that clears all demonic interference out of the way, so then Heaven lands on Earth.  The resources of Heaven come, so there’s tremendous blessing and breakthrough.
TONY: Since I am in the Messiah Jesus, I’m positioned in Heaven with him.  Here’s the truth.
When Heaven invades Earth, whenever God is going to do a miracle, whenever the Father is going to release a blessing and a breakthrough he suspends time or he turns it back, or he supernaturally accelerates it forward.
TONY: What the enemy does is the enemy uses these judgments, these bitter judgments of the sons and daughters to bring them into a form of captivity because, and the 5th commandment in the Torah says, “Honor your father and your mother.”  Well somebody will say, “You know, I had such a bad father, such a bad mother, there’s no way I can honor them.”  But here’s what that father and mother did, no matter how bad they were. Maybe they were neglectful, maybe they were abusive, maybe they were hard and harsh, but they gave you a gift called life. They were the person that the Father used to bring you into the earth, and if you just honor them for that you honor God. When you honor God and honor that parent, and you forgive that parent and you reverse your (bitter) judgment, the enemy can no longer hold you in captivity, and He can bring a blessing. So people will look at their parents and say, you know what, I forgive you, the vow that I made, I reverse it and I let it go, the Father will heal their heart, release them from captivity and the blessing will come upon them.
TONY: I was ministering to a woman.  She had 60% bone loss, and was in pain. I prayed for her, and nothing happened. But I had a revelatory moment because the Father loved her so much. The Father said this to me. He said, “When she was young she had an abortion. She repented and I forgave her, but she has never forgiven herself. She judged herself…got into self-rejection and self-hatred.”  The Father said (to) bring this up to her. She goes in tears. When she reverses the (bitter judgment) on herself, she instantly gets healed. I have seen so many people, Sid, physically healed, mentally healed, emotionally healed, not just when they forgive, because that’s one part of it, but when they reverse their (bitter) judgment on: their parents, pastor, or older brother or sister, or step-parent (+ self).
TONY: See, The Father no longer has judged that person because they’re forgiven. But now I need to take the judgment of the Father on me, which is, it’s forgiven, it’s washed in the blood of the Lamb. It’s a Passover. In other words, I’m bringing you out of Egypt into the Land of Milk andHoney. I’m bringing you out of captivity into freedom and liberty. It’s as if that never happened.  You know, scripture says, “As far as the east is from the west, that’s how far the sins, my sins are taken away.” Well how far do you go east before you go west? You never get there.  So when I make (reverse) that judgment and I agree with the Father, all of a sudden I’m released.
TONY: In 1989, I got caught up to Heaven. An angel came. He was about 5'10", white, had chocolate brown hair, went to Heaven, ended up in the Heavenly Tabernacle.  I saw the Glory of God, and as a result of that, the Father asked me a question. He said, “What do you think made Abraham great?”   Of course in Heaven, whatever you think, it’s there…The Father says to me, “That’s true.” But then he refers me to Genesis 18, where Abraham commands his children and his household after him to have intimacy to God, with God and to walk in his way. So what the Father said, “What made Abraham great,” was he revealed his intimacy with God, he revealed his faith and he imparted it and transmitted it to his children and his family, and he told them to follow in His steps.
SID: There’s a word, it’s called a legacy. Wouldn’t it be wonderful for you to have a (spiritual) legacy of the things you’ve learned passed on to your children and your children’s children, and maybe your children’s, children’s children.
TONY: There was a young man, he was in the projects; he was classified as mentally challenged. He was on drugs and he gave his heart to the Lord. He was delivered from drugs.  He was healed from mental retardation. He couldn’t even read. Not only that, he got filled with the Holy Spirit.  I began to instruct him, to be a spiritual father to him. I was bringing the Heavenly Father’s blessing into his life. The spirit of wisdom and revelation came on him, according to Ephesians 1:17, and God began to give him ideas. This is what the Jewish people have enjoyed for years. “I will open up the windows of Heaven.” In other words, you see…where you are...to (go to), what the Father has for you. He gives you these creative ideas on how to prosper. He got an idea to have a cleaning business and he (now) cleans businesses. Then the Father spoke to him and said, “Get your nursing home administrator’s license.” He took the state test, the federal test. He passed. He then became an administrator. Then he owns the nursing home…Everything this man does seems to prosper.
TONY: Holy Father, in the name of Yeshua, I know that You are releasing Your blessing now. You are presenting all that You are to this person.  They are being given access to the great I AM.  That’s provision. That’s protection. That’s Your presence…intimacy…love...fullness.  It’s coming into this person’s life; you are receiving healing.  You’re being healed spiritually, mentally, emotionally, physically. You’re being made whole. In the name of Yeshua the Messiah, the Father’s blessing is coming upon your: marriage, loved ones, and finances.  Now the angel of breakthrough is being released by the Lord God of the breakthrough. Now every demonic interference is being removed.  Those family members will be saved. They will come to know Jesus the Messiah. They’ll be filled with the Spirit. Healing and miracles are being released. The Lord is prospering you in every area of your life and every area of your personal ministry. It is yours now because the blessing and the breakthrough, it belongs to you. The Father gives it to you now in the name of Jesus the Messiah.

"(1st) Embrace of an offense...[The (evil) spirit comes on the heels of...an offensive event.  The Bible says that offenses will come, but it is up to each one of us to either embrace the offense or release it immediately to God.  If one embraces the (evil) spirit of offense, they have opened a door for other (evil spirit) embraces to follow.  This is a strategy of the enemy to bring people into bondage (captivity/character defects).] 
(2nd) embracing a lying spirit of reinterpretation [exaggerates events and explains things (and motives) in a negative way]...
(3rd) embracing a spirit of accusation and judgment...
(4th) embracing a spirit of bitterness [You can tell you are in bitterness when you relive the same event (&/or emotions) over and over in your mind...and then begin to spread it to others...Now these tormentors (demons) have a (legal) right
to lock you up and torment you...until such a time as you forgive]...[The 1st 4 points you choose to embrace.  The following 5 points embrace you, whether you want the to or not.]
(5th) embraced by a spirit of deception...[You become confused about who god is, who you are and about all truth...
If you know the truth (Yeshua) you will come to freedom...The spirit of deception...keeps you locked up.]
(6th) embraced by a spirit of (unexplainable/uncontrollable) fear and depression...
[A person wants to hide...Fears come out of nowhere...A spirit...takes over as further torment.]
(7th) embraced by a spirit of compulsions, obsessions and addictions...
(8th)embraced by a spirit of control...
[It can manifest through flattery...tears...shouting...subtle manipulation...passive...or...aggressive control.]
(9th) embraced by a suppressing (demonic) spirit [(who often overcomes/submerges/overtakes/overrides) a person's identity...The words and actions are no longer theirs but are caused by a spirit.]
Now the Good News - "Someone who is stuck in any of those stages...is to take (go) back to the original offense and deal with that...Release...the offending people and events (and then) all the house of cards that the enemy has erected falls to the ground.  Allow Holy Spirit to show where (the initial) offense came in...Release (give) it (&) all (judgment) to the Lord.
(1-Forgive him/her/them and repent for unforgiveness, in order to receive your own) freedom (from captivity/problems)."
PRAYER: "Lord, I am not the judge; You are the only true and righteous judge...I give (release to) You all these people...events and all these emotions."  (2) After the prayer of forgiveness, in Jesus' name, "command all attached (evil) spirits to leave.  (3)Then pray (in Jesus' name) that the Father's love fill the void."  (NEVER take back what you have released to the Lord.)  "Continue to give up to the Lord all those (recurring/repeat) thoughts and emotions related to those past events.  The devil will try to get you to embrace offense again."  [4-RESIST in Jesus' name and the devil must flee.
Replace negative thoughts with holy/good thoughts (especially scripture) &/or replace with deeds (such as telling others about Jesus].

Buried With Christ

Scripture teaches that when we come to Christ our own sins are buried with Him.  When we forgive another, we bury those sins, and must not dig them up again nor look back at them.  Lot's wife, was told by the angels not to look back; she disobeyed and turned to salt!  This is a hard lesson to learn.  We are forever using hard lessons to defend ourselves, teach others, discuss with our psychiatrists and doctors, or even share on prayer lines as a form of gossip/tattling!  Sometimes God does allow us a legal loophole, but be very certain it is the Holy Spirit and not self that is prompting the disclosure. 
It may take a lifetime to learn how to walk this this line.  Keep praying in tongues (day in and day out), so the Holy Spirit can more readily lead you!  When a negative emotion (rage/anger/hate/resentment/hurt) erupts from a buried casket we need to say, "Hey, wait a minute.  I recognize you, anger, hate, self pity, self-absorption, heaviness, sadness, depression, oppression, torment, terror, fear, shame, guilt, Satan, etc)  I reject you.  I refuse you.  I bind you.  I place you back into the casket.  In Jesus' name.."
Cupid is real.  He is an angel with an arrow aimed at the heart.  However, he is an evil fallen angel.  He comes to pierce our heart with wounds.  Recognize him or at least recognize his arrows.  Remember, we are corpses, dead in Christ,  so when the arrows land, remind oneself, "I am dead.  I cannot feel/accept these wounds.  I refuse/reject them, in the name of Jesus Christ.  Thanks and praise be to Jesus Christ Who bore all wounds and hurts for us.  I worship and thank you Lord. 
I apologize for those wounds, sins and diseases which disfigured You so much that you were hardly recognizable. 
I apologize for man's abusing/maiming You worse than any other human, due to our collusion with our  invisible enemy Satan.  When dying, both Steven and Christ said, "Father forgive them, for they know not what they are doing; hold this sin not against them."

"We must also remember to be good stewards of our personal testimonies. That means we must allow God the freedom to direct us in what to share, how much information to give and whom to give it to. The Bible says in 2 Corinthians 5:17, 'Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.' So unless the Lord prompts you to minister to others by sharing the sin of the past, leave things as they are. Sometimes what people don't know about you won't hurt them...People are not quite ready in their human nature to deal with what you used to do. For example, you may have been a prostitute or a drug addict. You may even have been an alcoholic or a homosexual. Although the blood of Jesus has wiped away the sin of the past, there are those who are not quite mature enough to handle a testimony of that magnitude. That's why it's so important that we learn how to walk in discretion and allow the Holy Spirit to lead us."

Condemnation Accusation

Hebrews 8:12 - The New Covenant - 11"THEY SHALL NOT TEACH EVERYONE HIS FELLOW CITIZEN, and EVERYONE HIS BROTHER, SAYING, 'KNOW THE LORD,' FOR ALL WILL KNOW ME, FROM THE LEAST TO THE GREATEST OF THEM.
12"FOR I WILL BE MERCIFUL TO THEIR (inherited) INIQUITIES, and I WILL REMEMBER THEIR SINS NO MORE."
13When He said, "A new covenant," He has made the 1st obsolete.  But whatever is becoming obsolete and growing old is ready to disappear. 
(Spiritual insight: The Old Testament Law was to bring conviction and repentance, not condemnation, which is critical, Satan's mouthpiece, giving others and Satan a legal right to torment when we speak/repeat a lie:  Any forgiven sin is also forgotten regarding punishment or retaliation, but NOT by Satan, the false accuser.  Thus, in God's heavenly court, we are innocent before Satan's bullying.  On earth we can command Satan and his accomplices to depart, in Jesus' name.)

Confess
 Repent

James 5:16 - Complete Jewish Bible (CJB)  16 Therefore, openly acknowledge (confess) your sins to one another, and pray for each other, so that you may be healed.  The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective. 
http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=James+5:16&version=CJB - [One repents to God to allow Jesus' blood to remove/cover the sin, to absolve one of the after death consequence regarding eternal separation, whereas, the sharing of that prior forgiven sin to safe/trustworthy/mature individuals deals with allowing the Holy Spirit to heal the wound of the sin, per Doug Weiss:

Joni – Pornography Addiction #2 – Dr. Doug Weiss (J1062) - Notice the use of the word healed in the scripture. 
Christ's body/flesh during communion is that part of church sacraments that appropriates/deals with physical healing:
'and by His stripes we are/were healed'.]

Excerpt http://www.scribd.com/doc/234895617/Reckless-Devotion#scribd - Day 20 Seed of Revival - "All of the world's greatest revivals began with repentance.  Perhaps the most significant revival of history, for me, is the one that began with my grandfather in China.  It started when the Holy Spirit began to pour out an overwhelming conviction of sin on a group of children.  It was so intense  that these orphans would lie on the floor sobbing for entire days at a time.  They would hide under desks and in closets, because they were so convicted and broken.  What had they done that was so bad?  To deserve such conviction?  Really, nothing.  They had been used as child laborers in the tin mines, which were run by ruthless people who had no intention of paying them.  They were abused.  Most people would want to care for them, restore them, build them up, love them - (definitely) not tell them to repent and come to Christ. We would want to show them the love of God.  Yet seemingly, before they knew anything about salvation or the love of God, they were made aware of their sin; they ran to Jesus to ask for forgiveness...Romans3:13.  We have all missed the mark. Real revival cannot begin (in our heart, family, nation, world) until we realize...how utterly dependent we are, and must be, on Father God...fully acknowledging His greatness and our need."

Counterfeit Sin

Maria de Lange, Susanna Francina - http://stclements.edu/grad/gradsusanna.pdf -
chapter 4 iniquity - section Counterfeit sin = (“FEELING” & acceptance of guilt/condemnation/being skum/unwanted/unloved/nasty - which is a lie - a contradiction of what God says about us in Scripture)
"Evil spirits can…counterfeit sin by causing some apparent manifestation of the evil nature (especially) in a person’s (mind/thought) life.
Mature Christians should know whether such a manifestation (of shame/guilt/condemnation/intimidation) is really (un-repented personal sin or un-repented inherited ancestral iniquity/) sin from the old nature or a (mental or physical) manifestation from Evil spirits.
(Satan is a professional counterfeiter.  Let’s invite the Holy Spirit and our guardian angel to help filter out stinking thinking.)
(Holy Spirit correction is gentle/kind/tender/sweet/helpful.  Once a sin is repented of, the Trinity does NOT remember it. 
The devil does remember; it is he who will attempt to taunt us, as long as he can get away with it.)
Evil spirits thrive on the fact that deceived Christians easily accept thoughts from them, giving them a foothold in the person’s (thought) life...
A believer knows the Cross and his position (of being seated with Christ and) of death to (deliberately consistently repeating) sin (that is specifically outlawed in Scripture) and unflinchingly rejects all known sin…Thereafter, if a (false impression/feeling/) manifestation of sin takes place, the person should right away discern the origin of the sin (the thought attack) as from demonic origin...
If the person does not discern this (that the origin of the accusing thought is from his enemy and NOT from himself, then), he believes a LIE (about himself and about God) as much as in any other way (in the same manner that Eve took/accepted the lie (or apple or fruit) from the Deceiver (Satan or snake). 
When a person confesses (claims/agrees with) it (the deception/untruth/lie/thought) as his own sin, that brings the power of the Enemy upon him to drive him into the sin that he has confessed (taken/claimed) as his own (error/mistake/problem/illness/belief/disease)
Many a Christian is held down (tormented/troubled/oppressed/thwarted/hindered) by supposed 'besetting sins', which he has (previously/already) confessed (claimed/repented of/been absolved of) as his own.
No amount of (new/ongoing/repeated) ‘confession of sin’ will remove this (perpetual/ongoing/perceived/forgiven) sin
Believers would find liberty, if they attributed these (accusatory/badgering) sins to its right source.  Such a believer is so acutely conscious of the 'self' whom he hates and loathes, that he is never free form the dark shadow of self-condemnation, self-accusation or self-despair. 
No appropriation with Christ in
(His) death (and resurrection) destroys (a lie, if the thought/temptation/suggestion/ mental torment is NOT a sin but rather a lying demon who is speaking/pretending to be one's own thoughts.)
A false personality (can) encompass (afflict) the 'true inner man'.
Few are aware that this is possible, but is sadly a real thing among multitudes of the children of God.  (When thought attacks occur, born-again &/or Holy Spirit baptized) Christians should realize (remind themselves and the enemy) that they are seated with Christ in Heavenly places.
Our authority over demons does NOT require miraculous powers. It is ours by virtue of our position in Christ
Deliverance is the application of: the Word of God, prayer and command by...knowledge of the Word (spoken aloud to contradict any lie), faith and...anointing of God’s Holy Spirit…ingredients to successful deliverance of the demonic (negative thought attacks). 
The sin that holds out last on the battlefield is the one which the sinner is least aware of and which the saint ordinarily conquers last – This is the sin of unbelief. Unbelief is a sin making sin. There is a pre-eminence of unbelief among sins.
The sin of unbelief…is used by Satan to lure to other sins.
To eat of the tree of good and evil is the 1st poisonous breath (bite/nibble) which Eve took from the enemy.
The unbelieving person carries his own warrant to jail – in a sense he is already imprisoned, for he wears the brand (label/stigma) of a damned person... 
The strategy that Satan uses in connection with the sin of unbelief is the following:
 1.The Word (s of Jesus) preached did NOT profit them, because it is NOT being mixed with faith in them that hear it.
159
 2.The secret of sin’s strong hold upon a person is unbelief. There is no mastery (victory) for a sinner (victim/captive/patient) while unbelief overpowers him.
This sin (of unbelief) will break down all reasoning (fight/resistance to diagnosis/prognosis).  Often a sinner will confess other sins but he will NOT accept Christ’s mercy (will not begin to agree with God that Christ has already fixed/reversed today’s problem). It is hard to persuade a human to do this, when the devil…stands guard.
 3.To keep people in bondage, Satan uses the most superficially plausible of all sin,
the fear of sinning with presumptuous faith. Satan intends to use this sin to put the greatest dislike upon God and unfold all his deceased malice against God at once.
 4.Only by (His) faith can the saint obtain a good report.
160 By (His) faith will God have a good report in the world.
Yet, by unbelief the devil does his worst to raise an evil report of God, (illustrated in the book of Job.)
 Sin is the coming short of the Glory of God.
161" (Coming short of our healing/deliverance/destiny.  Jesus has NOT died in vain, has not become a liar, if/when we take Him at His word, that He overcame all the works of the devil - on our behalf.  Everything God did on the cross & resurrection is of NO avail if we do not personally begin to apply/take/accept it right now for our own personal circumstance, in the name and power of Jesus, Messiah.)

Sandford, John L. and Paula - Growing Pains - www.elijahhouse.org - Chapter 2 Overcoming Wounds from Prenatal Rejection and Birthing Traumas - section Rejection by Parental Emotional Withdrawal - Those ministered to are asked to forgive parents for actual and/or perceived injustices, to repent for the sin of judgment (which is ultimately God's justice), to release parents from condemnation, and to ask God to bless the parents (if still alive).

Original Sin

Kiko Argüello - http://www.amazon.com/The-Kerygma-In-Shantytown-Poor/dp/1586178601#reader_B00JL0PKFA chapter 1
http://www.camino-neocatecumenal.org/neo/iniciadores%20camino/entrevista%20kiko%20ewtn%20ingl.htm Interview
The 3 Angels chapter/section - "The Catechism of the Catholic church says that original sin has wounded man (CCC 406-7)  We are wounded...Original sin has an infinite dimension. It has closed heaven and brought man...to hell (on earth and thereafter until saved) to be under the dominion (kingdom) of death...Abraham, Isaac, Moses, David could NOT (at death) enter heaven.  They had to remain in Sheol...because...we could only be redeemed by God Himself...Original sin has an infinite weight...value...Christ is God...
His redeeming death (and resurrection) has an infinite value and was able to open heaven for all...Are you aware of this?  Christ is risen (from the dead); He has opened heaven, and He has taken with Him (at the time of His ascension)...Adam and Eve...Abraham, Isaac, Moses, David, and all the holy patriarchs (all those who pre-deceased Him, those who loved and obeyed God)...(Between His death and resurrection) Christ down into hell; He broke the gates of hell, and from there rescued (His spiritual family).  All mankind is under the dominion of death [until he realizes that his freedom has already been provided, his bail (paid by Jesus Christ) from eternal separation from God.  Once the Holy Spirit brings this to his attention, he has the spiritual key to be free, if he so chooses.  Each generation and each individual must awake to this spiritual truth and choose which spiritual kingdom he (his spirit and soul) will remain in for eternity, now and after death
of his body]...
If (original inherited and personal un-remedied) sin has as a consequence the most profound (physical and spiritual) death (separation from God) of mankind and (eternal) hell as its recompense and outcome, Christ comes to save...offering Himself for the sin (nature) of men extirpating sin from the flesh (and soul/mind/heart) of man. 
This is His work, to take away the sin (nature) of man and to open heaven (God, and His kingdom citizenship to him)...
In order for man to be adopted by God as His child, that man has to receive divine nature that is given in baptism, in the church, through the Holy Spirit...
Right now Christ is before the Father interceding for us, presenting Him, His wounds full of light, glorious wounds, which are a sign of His suffering for you, of the ransom He has paid for you...
Give your sins to Christ...Receive the Holy Spirit now.  The Holy Spirit makes you one with the Father...the holy Trinity...
Jesus Christ does not (so much) see any man as bad, so to speak.  (Rather) He sees man as enslaved...He comes to free them with His death and resurrection, to break their chains...There are others who are crushed by the sins of others (including ours.  Father, forgive)...This is good news...Accept your nothingness (and Him in us our everything)...
The greatest sin is to kill God (in our heart)."

Chapter 2 - section - 2. THE MEANING and IMPLICATIONS of WAR and WARFARE
"The doctrine of original sin is in the official tenants of every major denomination and independent church...In Humanism, New Age, The Occult, Psychology and Science the key to the question of (original) sin is easy -
sin doesn’t exist”.  To Christians the key to the problem is very simple - “Win them to Jesus!” When someone is won to Jesus, that person is transferred from one kingdom to another. “These two kingdoms are the ‘kingdom of darkness’ ruled by Satan and the ‘kingdom of God’s Son Jesus Christ.’ The Bible makes this transferring of citizenship from the Prince of Darkness’ kingdom to Jesus’ kingdom very clear.” (Table 1)  For He [the Father] delivered us from the dominion of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son. Colossians 1:13

Wommack, Andrew - 11/12/2019 - https://www.awmi.net/video/this-weeks-tv/?id=zUp9PTJV - Jesus died ONCE to remove both original sin and subsequent sin.  His redemption is available when we repent and receive.  When we are born physically, we do not throughout our lives get reborn.  Likewise, when we are born spiritually, we do not get reborn each time we sin.  However, we do need to continually repent, but only when Holy Spirit brings that to our attention, often when there are the resources in place to help us, such as vitamin A for eyesight, B3 for schizophrenia, omega 3 for bipolar, pre and probiotics for healthy GI bacteria, AAA for alcoholics, etc.

Reproach

8Now when they had finished circumcising all the nation, they remained in their places in the camp until they were healed.
9Then the LORD said to Joshua, "Today I have rolled away the reproach of Egypt from you." So the name of that place is called Gilgal to this day.

Unstuck to Bondage or Consistent Repetitive Sin

Moore, Beth - 1/14/2015 - http://lifetoday.org/video/encased-in-grace-part-5-2/
[For one who is born-again/saved/believes in Jesus, there is a difference between an occasional sin (due to temporary relapse) and consistent sin (such as out of rebellion).  Obviously both need to be repented of, and both will be forgiven by the Trinity. God will NOT divorce us, if/when we repent.]
Moore, Beth - http://www.lightsource.com/ministry/wednesdays-with-beth/broadcast-archives.html

Jealousy

Jealousy got the disciples arrested and imprisoned. 
Acts 5:38 NIV
  The high priest and all his associates, who were members of the party of the Sadducees, were filled with jealousy.  They arrested the apostles and put them in the public jail.  The disciples did not put themselves in harms way, unless the Holy Spirit directed them to do so.  Instead they were often in a room with locked doors.  The 12 disciples had to forgive the clergy.  Forgiveness is NOT a feeling.  It is a duty.  If we forgive, then we are NOT angry, bitter, revengeful.  Negative emotions cause stress, disease, and even death.  When these emotions rear their heads, then we must reject them.  We acknowledge that they are real, but dangerous to our health, both physical and mental.  We refuse them the say way an alcoholic would refuse a drink or an addict would refuse a drug.  With difficulty at 1st, but with determination and desire to be whole.

Gossip Commentary

Bill Johnson (Bethel Church, Redding, California, USA) warns us NOT to look back, unless we do it with the blood of Christ.  Be reminded of the story of Lot's wife who looked back and turned into a pillar of salt.  It is a stumbling block to us and an open door to Satan each time we reminisce about the past of others or ourselves, and neglect to put on God's eye glasses.  If He has forgiven, then it is a sin for us to uncover, ruminate on, or expose wrong.  It is wrong to be offended.  Both Stephen and Jesus when dying said, "Father forgive them."  We need to repent of gossip, even if it is gossip about our-selves.  Any testimony should be told in light of what God has done for us.  For instance, if I need to share a secret, then that should be told in the context of how Christ redeemed what Satan intended for evil.  For instance, if my mate had depression and was suicidal, then I would share how Christ intervened.  Even then, that could be wrong, for it is NOT our job to share the testimony of others, because often it is only a form of gossip, a way of puffing up ourselves and putting down others.  Prayer groups are often just gossip centers.  Beware. Gossip/Slander/Leprosy

Basilea Schlink in Repentance-The Joy-Filled Life contends that if "we cannot forgive, be merciful, suffer injustice or react with meekness", then we have no adoration, radiance of joy, or songs of joy in our heart, nor do we have "power and authorization to carry out...a ministry".  We are spiritually dormant/dead, or what the Bible calls "dry bones". 
The spirit of Jesus in us should be contagious and raise people from the dead.  A good example of this is the Mozambique ministry of Rolland and Heidi Baker who raised 17 people from the dead. ( www.sidroth.org 1/2002  & 2/2004 radio broadcasts) 
Another current example in this generation is shown in the video Transformations which begins to reveal the monster miracles to entire cities and to entire gardens where food becomes uncontaminated, abundant and HUGE. www.transformnations.com One such happening was because God warned a pastor NOT to be offended, so He could do the
work He needed to do in that particular community.
What if my thinking is, perhaps, from time to time, delusional, scary, bewildering, weird, paranoid, affected by an inherited chemical imbalance due to no fault of mine, what then?  Forgiveness would be very difficult then.  However, our God is the maker of caterpillars who turn into butterflies. Let us claim God's blessings.  Let us refuse to accept as permanent the disability that we experience daily, but rather claim the invisible healing that waits those who BELIEVE in Jesus Christ and His resurrection power.
Unforgiveness is a house built on sand.  Unforgiveness is the foundation.  The bricks are made out of bitterness, envy, resentment, anger, rage, hate, murder, self-pity, and all other negative emotions.  Forgiveness is a house built on rock.  Its foundation and good example is Jesus Christ. Dying on the cross Jesus said, "Forgive them, for they know not what they do."   The bricks are peace, mercy, kindness, and all positive emotions. 
The medical profession knows that negative emotions such as stress contribute to disease.  Many clergy today believe that negative emotions and negative thought are the root cause of many diseases.  Henry Wright believes they are the root of most diseases and family curses.
What OCCUPIES most of our thinking time?  Is it a hurt, a wound, a thorn in the side? 
If a tear drops from the corner of our eye, our teeth grind, or a knot appears in the bottom of our stomach, when we think of something or someone (after the initial mourning, grieving time and normal annual reminders) day in and day out for the rest of our lives, then we have NOT forgiven.  When God forgives, He also forgets.  Maybe there is a scar, but the puss is gone.  When Jesus rose from the dead, His wounds were not oozing with gangrene.  Jesus forgave those who betrayed and crucified Him on the cross.  Who betrayed and crucified Him?  It was the sins of yesterday, today and tomorrow.

Taber, Vincent - in What should We Do With The Memory of Sin? from 9-10/96 Psychology for Living magazine 1-818-821-8400 warns us NOT to despair or obsess, nor to allow memories to become oppressive.  Rather permit them to remind us not to sin again and to be grateful once again for God's forgiveness, mercy and love.  Our attitude and determination might prevent a relapse.  A relapse not only affects us, but our whole family, especially our young children or grandchildren.
Those little moans from inside our heart tell us that we need to forgive 100% not 99%.  Perhaps we need to forgive ourselves, to forgive God, to forgive others.  Did we have an abortion?  Whose fault was it?  Did we give up a baby for adoption?  Did we marry the wrong person?  Whose fault was it?  It takes 2 to tango?  Perhaps it is not what we did, but what we failed to do?  That is still sin.  Sin is anything that separates us from God.  It can be venial sin.  It can be mortal sin.  It can be sin the size of a mustard seed.
Do not be deceived by believing that ongoing excessive negative emotions are normal or are "me". 
Satan is a roaring invisible lion trying to see who he can deceive.  Satan and his evil demon spirits are invisible and they want to vacation inside us.  They want to rent an apartment inside us.  Most of all they want legal permission to live in us permanently, whether it be to express anger, unforgiveness, depression, or any other self serving negative emotion. The Holy Spirit is also invisible, but available to defeat and evict our enemy.  Ask Jesus into your heart.  Then ask the Holy Spirit for His power to defeat the enemy in your life.  Read the new testament daily.  Go to a church service or church group weekly. Sing to God in the shower. Attend all available healing services

One tool that helps many is one's ability to attend daily Catholic mass, even if one is not a Catholic.  Those who advocate daily communion are Pentecostal pastor Smith Wigglesworth, English psychiatrist Kenneth McAll, Father John Hampsch of California, USA, American television pastors Perry Stone and Paula White, plus Methodist John Wesley. Catholic St. Ignatius of Antioch referred to communion as "the medicine of immortality".  St Augustine (who lived in the 4th century) saw 73 people headed at Mass and then realized that Jesus is now still practicing medicine as He was 2000 years ago.
Catholics encourage us (when we say the "Our Father" and before receiving communion) not only to forgive (and release to God) the living, but also the dead; for they are the ones who have often caused a curse in our family blood line.  This forgiveness often reverses the curse and begins a blessing in our blood line.  What an opportunity.  What a privilege.  The worst that could happen is that we would have peace instead of resentment.  Not a bad trade.  In the Old Testament of the Bible men asked God to forgive their own sins, plus the sins of their children and their forefathers.
In communion we drink Jesus' blood (red wine or red juice) and reflect on the fact that Jesus was punished for our sins so that we can enter sinless into the presence of God.  First we try to make reconciliation with any enemy.  Next we confess our sins (in secret) to God, so that then He can forgive us.  Our sins go out onto the scapegoat, which is Jesus.  In comes the Holy Spirit bringing forgiveness.  It is like a blood transfusion.  Out goes the bad blood and next comes in the good blood.  The life is in the blood.  Spiritual life is in the blood of Jesus Christ.  After we apologize to God, then we invite Jesus to live in our heart.
He always says, "Yes."  He never says, "I will wait till you get fixed," nor "  I will wait till your enemy likes you."  Nope.  He keeps the same rules that He gives us.  He wants us to forgive 70x7 times.  Thus He will forgive us 70x7 times.  Scripture says to do unto others as we want done (later) unto us!  It is a spiritual law of cause and effect.  If we want God to forgive us, we must first forgive - others, especially our enemies.  Scripture also says not to judge, for the way we judge is the way God will judge us.  Judging and unforgiving go together like salt and pepper.  Father God, "We apologize to You right now.  Please send Your angel to protect us from ever again having a judgmental or unforgiving spirit.  In Jesus Name we pray.  Amen."
Sometimes out of obedience we can forgive with our heads, but not with our hearts. 
The heart part may need to be a work of mercy and grace by the power of the Holy Spirit.  The heart part may come later as we continue in baby steps to be obedient, regardless of how we feel.  For instance, we love a child, but we will not always feel the love, especially when the baby is crying at midnight, having a tantrum, throwing up, etc.  Nevertheless,
we will out of obedience as a parent tend to that baby.  Later on our heart will swell in pride as we see the first baby steps, the first wedding, the 1st grandchild, etc.
(Note.  If someone has violated you, especially sexually or physically, you do not need to allow him/her to continue to hurt you.)  Forgiveness is all about you/me and not the offender. Forgiveness is about not letting anyone control our thoughts especially not control our negative thoughts.  It is not allowing the angry bitter thoughts to control our mental health or defeat our happiness or keep us a victim.  Parties are good, but not pity parties.  These daily negative thoughts affect our hormones and brain chemistry and sabotage us the innocent and not our enemy.  Forgiving is not needing/demanding the offender to apologize. That does not mean the offender is now trustworthy. 
Trust takes time to be rebuilt.

Guilt Scipture

Genesis 45:4-5 Stern 4He (Joseph) said, "I am Yosef, your brother, whom you sold into Egypt. 
5But don't be sad that you sold me into slavery here or angry at yourselves, because it was God Who sent me ahead of you (allowed me) to preserve life (to become a blessing)."

Tehillim
(Psalms) 32:5 Stern - When I acknowledged my sin to You, when I stopped concealing my guilt, & said, "I will confess my offenses to Adonai"; then You, You forgave the guilt of my sin.

Guilt Commentary

Guilt can be caused by omission or commission of a sin cited in holy scripture. 
The corresponding cure for this spiritual trespass is repentance to God & sometimes repenting to an individual as well. 
Sometimes amends do need to be made.  Any other method to rid ourselves of true guilt will never work.

False guilt can be caused by our incorrect thinking, for which counseling (preferably Christian), medication, alternative medicine, and classes/prayer for such as healing of emotions/memories/etc which may help.  Meditation (especially any originating in other religions) is a NO NO.  One reason for false guilt is the condemnation of us by evil spirits.  We do hear their voices/thoughts in our heads!  These are always lies, which we need to recognize, capture, and place under the feet of Jesus.  Then we replace those wrong thoughts with the thoughts of Jesus found in scripture.  Another reason for false guilt is we are in sin because even though we have received God's and maybe another's forgiveness, we have failed/refused to forgive ourselves.  Thus we need to repent.  Every time a self condemnation thought comes along, replace it with the truth of God's word in scripture.  Memorize/meditate on some of the following.  When strong long term negative emotions are an issue, often an evil spirit is the troublemaker.

Banks, Bill - Power for Deliverance songs - The Lord gave Bill this insight for his lecture on Forgiveness,
"You have asked Me to forgive you of your sins; I have forgiven you.  I have taken your sins from you.  You can stop asking Me.  They aren't your sins anymore.  You have given them to Me; they are Mine.  Now you get your hands off My sins!"

"
Napoleon was one of the so called 'Enlightened Monarchs.'   Napoleon suffered from syphilis and probably died due to consumption of arsenic which was used for treatment for syphilis during that time. Sexually transmitted diseases are rampant today & they all carry a physical penalty...If you keep doing something that gives permission...legal rights to demons...Doors that were openings for demon powers to bring sickness & other areas of darkness must be closed.  Submission is a choice & only you can make it.  A deliverance minister can’t make it for you; your spouse or parents can’t do it for you; it is a conscious choice that only you can make...Even after confession, some want to 'feel' guilty because of their sin. Forgiveness is what God does & it is based upon our confession, not what we feel like. Feel forgiven because you are forgiven. Receiving God’s forgiveness is a done deal. Don’t keep bringing up your past that is forgiven, that has been cleansed. It gives advantage to demons...So far as the east is from the west He has removed our sin from us. If He forgets it, you forget it. Condemnation is not God’s way. Forgiven? Forget it."

10/12/2020 - Transcript: JAMES: The Lord says that when He forgives our sin, He chooses to forget it & doesn't bring it up to His memory ever again. Now, you, I, & anyone were created in God's image. So a part of who you are is someone who has the ability to forget.  The problem we have is we've been (incorrectly) taught (by therapists or satan) to (rehearse) bring it up & bring it up & bring it up (24/7). What we need to do (once the isssue's root issue has been aired & forgiven) is learn how to forget like our Father does, like Jesus does. We have that ability, if we'll exercise & use it.
A part of becoming prepared is to activate the (baptismal) gifts that God has put into us, & to be able to forget (erase & heal the trauma/negative cellular memory of) the things that are holding us back (by enlisting the help of Holy: Spirit, scripture & angels, in Jesus' name, esp via regular eucharist.  We repent for self & release others from our anger/judgment.)


Earley
, Dave in The 21 Most Effective Prayers of the Bible in chapter 6 I have Sinned - The Prayer of David - 2nd Samuel 12:13 reminds us "that guilt follows sin like a vulture attaches itself to rotten meat.  Guilt followed David because he had  sinned...Hell is the expression of the absence of God, and guilt excludes us from the presence of God."

"Jeremiah 31:34 tells us, 'For they shall all know Me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them,' saith the LORD: 'For I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.'”
Benny Hinn reminds us that, “When we repent of sins and accept Christ as Savior, we are given His name and the right to call ourselves followers of Christ
...When God promises to forgive your sins and blot them from your record...you are declared free from your past! More to the point, it means that the covenant God makes with you is eternal.
It can never be broken. This covenant is the exchange of lives, not properties, so it is much more than a contract."
"1 Corinthians 6:17 tells us, 'But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit.'
Not only do we take Christ’s name when we become believers, but we are joined to Him.
We partake of His life. Our sins will be remembered no more.
We enter a new covenant with Him. We become His witnesses on earth

Kendall, RT - conversation of Mr. R.T. Kendall with Joyce Meyer. http://todayswordsofgod.blogspot.com/2009/08/blog-post.html - "Mr. R.T. Kendall says, "The devil loves it when we are living in condemnation.
When you're not forgiving yourself you're helping the devil do his job.
Because he is called as an accuser of the brothers in Revelation chapter 12.
So when you're accusing yourself, the devil can just go off for a vacation, because you're doing his job for him.
We're commanded to forgive ourselves by believing what Jesus Christ did on the cross.
When you forgive others, you're giving a gift which they don't deserve it. Don't feel guilty of what you did in the past.
I say, give yourself a gift of forgiveness which you don't deserve. This is what the Lord wants you to do. Just set yourself free."  (Only in this way you can feel the joy & peace our Savior has for you. Unless you forgive yourself remembering the Savior on the cross and his cleansing power, you are easily prone to devil's work, just like our body is viable to any disease when our immune system collapses when the WBC count drops. So please don't give Satan a chance.)

Kendall, RT - When You Can't Forgive Yourself By R.T. Kendall - www.rtkendallministries.com - "Forgiving oneself means to experience the love that keeps no record of our own wrongs. It is one thing to have this breakthrough regarding others; it is quite another to experience the greater breakthrough - total forgiveness of ourselves. So many Christians say, 'I can forgive others, but how can I ever forget what I have done? 
I know God forgives me, but I can't forgive myself.'
 We must remember that forgiving ourselves is a lifelong commitment.
In precisely the same way that I must forgive others every single day, I must also forgive myself (Luke 6:37).
"  
The Process of Forgiving "We must renew our commitment to forgive others each and every day for the wrongs done to us. Forgiving ourselves is also a daily process. We may wake up each day with the awareness of past failures. We may have feelings of guilt, or pseudo-guilt, if our sins have been placed under the blood of Christ.  But forgiving yourself may bring about the breakthrough you have been looking for. It could set you free in ways you have never before experienced. Sometimes we are afraid to forgive ourselves. We cling to fear as if it were a thing of value. The truth is, the very breath of Satan is behind the fear of forgiving ourselves.  Jesus knows that many of us have this problem. This is a further reason Jesus turned up unexpectedly after His Resurrection in the room where the disciples were assembled both in terror and in guilt.  Jesus wanted them to know they were totally forgiven; He also wanted them to forgive themselves. He spoke to them as if nothing had happened (John 20:21). This gave them dignity and showed them that nothing had occurred that would change Jesus' plans and strategy for them."
True guilt and pseudo-guilt - "There are 2 kinds of guilt most of us will struggle with: true guilt (a result of our sin against God) and pseudo-guilt (when there is no sin in our lives). When we have sinned, we must confess it to God (1 John 1:9).
The blood of Jesus takes care of true guilt by doing 2 basic things:
a. It washes away our sin - as though it never had existed. 
b. It perfectly satisfies God's eternal justice.  Whereas discipline is necessary because we are sinners.  Sin that has been confessed to God is totally forgiven by Him. Any guilt we feel after that is pseudo-guilt.  There are 2 kinds of false guilt:
a. The kind that comes when sin was never involved in the first place. 
b. The kind that comes when sin has been forgiven by God.
Pseudo-guilt - though it is false - s also very real; we feel keenly guilty. But there is no good reason for the sense of guilt.
Take, for example, a person who is driving a car when a child runs out into the street at the last second & is struck down. The guilt can be overwhelming, but there was no sin. It doesn't need to be confessed to God.
The other kind of pseudo-guilt comes when you have confessed your sins but you don't feel forgiven.
Once we have acknowledged our sin, we should accept our forgiveness & leave the rest in God's hands...
I can't change the past.  But for me to continue to feel guilty over this (any personal mistake) is not pleasing to God because He has already totally forgiven me. If I let myself dwell on my failure, I am giving in to pseudo-guilt & sinning as I do because I am dignifying unbelief. I must keep destroying the record of my wrongs - every day. 
Not forgiving ourselves is a subtle way of competing with Christ's atonement. God has already punished Jesus for what we did (2 Cor. 5:17). Instead of accepting Jesus' sacrifice, I want to punish myself for my failures. This competes with Christ's finest hour...
Fear is one of the main reasons we do not forgive ourselves. The person who fears has not been made perfect in love, & fear "has to do with punishment" (1 John 4:18).  Recognizing that fear & punishing ourselves for our mistakes, displeases God should result in an ever-increasing sadness for this self-loathing spirit. We are required to walk away from our past folly and not look back...
Our unforgiveness of ourselves may be traceable to pride. We, in our arrogance, cannot bear having the Lord do everything for us so graciously, so we think we must help Him out a bit.  Our pride must be eclipsed by humility. We must let God be God & the blood of Christ do what it in fact did: remove our guilt and satisfy God's sense of justice.  Just as fear & pride are like identical twins, so are self-righteousness & self-pity. We feel sorry for ourselves and show it by not forgiving ourselves.  Pseudo-guilt can develop into very real guilt before God. It is false guilt, since God says, "You're not guilty." We make it into real guilt when we in effect reply, 'Yes, I am.'  The bottom line is this: Not forgiving ourselves is wrong and dishonoring to God. But God will use the sorrow we feel over what we've done to draw us to Himself.
Guilt and Grace - "The initial work of the Holy Spirit is that He convicts of sin. When we walk in the light we know the blood cleanses us of sin, but walking in the light also reveals sin in us that we may not have seen before (1 John 1:7-8).  The sense of guilt God instigates is temporary. God uses guilt only to get our attention. When we say, "I'm sorry," and mean it, that's enough for God.  He doesn't beat us black and blue and require us to go on a 30-day fast to supplement Christ's atonement. He convicts us of sin to get our attention, but having done that, He wants us to move forward.  The ability to forgive ourselves therefore extends from an understanding of grace. Grace is undeserved favor.  Mercy is not getting what we do deserve (justice). Grace is accepting what we don't deserve (total forgiveness).  It may seem unfair when we have been so horrible. We have let God down; we have let others down.  But it is fair (1 John 1:9). The blood of Jesus did a wonderful job. God is not looking for further satisfaction.  All accusations regarding confessed sin come from the devil, who works either as a roaring lion to scare or an angel of light to deceive - or both (1 Pet. 5:8; 2 Cor. 11:14). Never forget, perfect love drives out fear (1 John 4:18)."
Let the Past be Past - "The sweet consequence of not keeping a record of all wrongs is that we let go of the past and its effect on the present. We cast our care on God and rely on Him to restore the wasted years and to cause everything to turn out for good.  We find ourselves accepting ourselves as we are with all our failures (just as God does), knowing all the while our potential to make more mistakes. God never becomes disillusioned with us; He loves us and knows us inside out.  Moses, David, Jonah, Peter - all these men in the Bible had to forgive themselves before they could move into the ministry God had planned for them. It's time for you to follow their example. 
That is exactly what God wants of you and me. Let the past be past - at last."
Kendall, RT - http://dreamsandmysteries.com/videos/the-mystery-of-total-forgiveness/

Joyce Meyer reminds us to thank God that we are forgiven, each time the guilt surfaces for something for which we already repented to God, something for which God already forgave, something for which God has already forgotten and is not going to hold against/punish us for in heaven. Obviously forgiveness will not undo rape, murder, abortion or birth out of wedlock, but forgiveness will reverse the spiritual/heavenly/eternal consequences.  By accepting/taking/receiving God's forgiveness, we allow the self condemnation and the condemnation of Satan and others to be exposed as a lie, a hurt that we refuse to accept, refuse to let fester in our lives. By forgiving AND praying for the offender, we release him/her into God's hands and take/loose/ relinquish them out of our hands/anger/hurt/revenge/responsibility.

McKenna, Sister Briege with Libersat, Henry - Miracles Do Happen - www.sisterbriege.com - Chapter 2 The Lord Lives in a Battered Tent reminds us that good guilt send us to the confessional where God can forgive us, whereas bad guilt (shame) robs us of God's blessings and turns into pride preventing us from forgiving ourselves (and/or God).  "The difference between Peter and Judas was Peter's ability to say, 'Well, I sinned and denied my Master, but He has forgiven me.'  Judas couldn't forgive himself and couldn't accept God's forgiveness.  We must NOT allow guilt to beat us to the ground...into  discouragement or depression."

Prince, Derek - Chapter 19 Areas of Personality Affected by Demons @ They Shall Expel Demons
requires a long term commitment prior to pastoral counseling and deliverance, not a hit and run exorcism. 
If one has not covered all the bases like a baseball player, even if the client hits a home run, he may not win the game, because the demons will return. In addition, Prince reminds the client that he is talking to a demon and not to him, when there is a need for deliverance.  Prince mostly quotes Scripture to the demon to remind him of his failures and Christ's victory.  Scripture is the key.  See Matthew 12:43-45 NIV below.

Sandford, John L & Paula - Growing Pains - www.elijahhouse.org chapter 8 Lasting Healing from Sexual Abuse -
section Pronounce absolution (assurance of forgiveness) to the one who was abused.  Having forgiven the victimizer, the victim now "may still retain feelings of guilt until that...has been addressed in prayer.  So if the abused cannot let go of false guilt, even if he knows (intellectually, but not emotionally or experimentally) he is guilty, we (may need to) pray, 'On the basis of the Word of God, you are forgiven...I (also) forgive you in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ" (for feeding unforgiveness that will backfire on my physical, emotional and spiritual life), for not forgiving God, and for not forgiving myself.)

Schlink, Basilea in Repentance-The Joy-Filled Life, reminds us to pray, "'Help me to see the 'log'  in my own eye (Matthew 7:3)'...Instead of weeping over what others have done to us, we shall weep over that which we have done to them.  We shall be able to see everything in the light of (God's) Truth and no longer in the murky light of the Enemy, who magnifies the other person's sin and covers up our own sins, so that we either do not see them at all or only see them as a small speck."  When the Lord allows Satan to send "suffering into our lives, we feel as though we are martyrs, that we should be pitied...we...feel that we are innocent and are suffering unjustly...When others cause us suffering and make life difficult for us, our hearts are often filled with bitterness and we feel sorry for ourselves...growing more and more gloomy, discontented and unhappy.  Thus we become imprisoned by our problems." 

Self Forgiving is Essential for Healing (but only after repenting to the Trinity.)

Wommack, Andrew - https://www.awmi.net/video/this-weeks-tv/#/2018/week49/thursday - Andrew believes that one's conscience alerts us to evil/sin; that it was NEITHER God nor Satan who told Adam and Eve that they were naked, thus confronting them and notifying them of need to repent (rather than shaming/condemning, which Satan/Demons do).  Andrew's hypothesis is that Adam and Eve got or activated a conscience after they sinned.

                                                                              Self-absorption

We need to say, "In the name of Jesus, I bind the spirits of self (self-pity, self-centeredness, self-hate, self-anger, self-unforgiveness, pride) and put them under the feet of Jesus.  Come Holy Spirit and fill those empty spaces with Yourself.  Jesus, I apologize for allowing the enemy to get a foothold in my thought life.  Please forgive me yesterday, today, and tomorrow. Thank You.  Lord, give me Your mind and Your heart so that I, like You, will become the victor and no longer the victim." Satan and his family of demons are invisible and need bodies to manifest themselves.  If we or our ancestors have allowed demons to move into our human family, then the need to manifest negative emotions is not our need, but rather the demons' need to act out using our bodies.  If we are the temple of the Holy Spirit, then He in us is stronger than the demons.  Together with God we will have the spiritual muscle to say NO to negative emotions (such as anger and indignation) and yes to forgiveness. We can begin, one step at a time, to get the strength to walk away from old patterns of thinking and responding.  We need to separate the person from the sin.  We are making a big mistake if we are angry at the person and not the enemy, Satan who is manifesting in that person.  Let us not think, "I hate you".  Rather, let us think, "I hate you, Satan" the enemy of our soul.
Another aspect of forgiveness is reminding ourselves that we do NOT have the right to judge another.  Christ is the final judge.  In the name of Jesus, we remove that person from our judgment.  Scripture warns us that in the way we judge others, we will eventually be judged by God.  [Forgiveness has nothing to do with protecting ourselves from harm.  In danger, when necessary, we first remove ourselves; second we cover ourselves with the blood of Jesus.  Forgiveness need not include reconciliation; forgiveness need not include having a relationship, per New Life radio ministry www.newlife.com  (1-800-NEW-LIFE) .]  Henry Wright's ministry in Georgia, USA spends a lot of time helping others to forgive self, others and God. www.pleasantvalleychurch.net

Joseph Garlington (Covenant Church, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA) reminds us that we must choose between being right or being reconciled.  We need to give up our right to be right.  This is especially true in a marriage or family relationship.  Unforgiveness is the root of many diseases, especially those that eat the body, like cancer.  The Lord reminds us that vengeance is His.  We need to give God permission to be in control, of not only others, but also of ourselves.  This is true, especially for those who feel the need to control or fix everybody and everything.  As long as we are in control, God is not. 
When we quit, then God can begin.

Prince, Joseph - 3/6/2015 - http://lifetoday.org/video/the-god-of-grace-6/

Gossip

Bill Johnson (Bethel Church, Redding, California, USA) warns us NOT to look back, unless we do it with the blood of Christ.  Be reminded of the story of Lot's wife who looked back and turned into a pillar of salt.  It is a stumbling block to us and an open door to Satan each time we reminisce about the past of others or ourselves, and neglect to put on God's eye glasses.  If He has forgiven, then it is a sin for us to uncover, ruminate on, or expose wrong.  It is wrong to be offended.  Both Stephen and Jesus when dying said, "Father forgive them."  We need to repent of gossip, even if it is gossip about our-selves.  Any testimony should be told in light of what God has done for us.  For instance, if I need to share a secret, then that should be told in the context of how Christ redeemed what Satan intended for evil.  For instance, if my mate had depression and was suicidal, then I would share how Christ intervened.  Even then, that could be wrong, for it is NOT our job to share the testimony of others, because often it is only a form of gossip, a way of puffing up ourselves and putting down others.  Prayer groups are often just gossip centers.  Beware. Gossip/Slander/Leprosy

Basilea Schlink in Repentance-The Joy-Filled Life contends that if "we cannot forgive, be merciful, suffer injustice or react with meekness", then we have no adoration, radiance of joy, or songs of joy in our heart, nor do we have "power and authorization to carry out...a ministry".  We are spiritually dormant/dead, or what the Bible calls "dry bones". 
The spirit of Jesus in us should be contagious and raise people from the dead.  A good example of this is the Mozambique ministry of Rolland and Heidi Baker who raised 17 people from the dead. ( www.sidroth.org 1/02  & 2/04 radio broadcasts).  Another current example in this generation is shown in the video Transformations which begins to reveal the monster miracles to entire cities and to entire gardens where food becomes uncontaminated, abundant and HUGE. www.transformnations.com One such happening was because God warned a pastor NOT to be offended, so He could do the
work He needed to do in that particular community.
What if my thinking is, perhaps, from time to time, delusional, scary, bewildering, weird, paranoid, affected by an inherited chemical imbalance due to no fault of mine, what then?  Forgiveness would be very difficult then.  However, our God is the maker of caterpillars who turn into butterflies. Let us claim God's blessings.  Let us refuse to accept as permanent the disability that we experience daily, but rather claim the invisible healing that waits those who BELIEVE in Jesus Christ and His resurrection power.
Unforgiveness is a house built on sand.  Unforgiveness is the foundation.  The bricks are made out of bitterness, envy, resentment, anger, rage, hate, murder, self-pity, and all other negative emotions.  Forgiveness is a house built on rock.  Its foundation and good example is Jesus Christ. Dying on the cross Jesus said, "Forgive them, for they know not what they do."   The bricks are peace, mercy, kindness, and all positive emotions. 
The medical profession knows that negative emotions such as stress contribute to disease.  Many clergy today believe that negative emotions and negative thought are the root cause of many diseases.  Henry Wright believes they are the root of most diseases and family curses.
What OCCUPIES most of our thinking time?  Is it a hurt, a wound, a thorn in the side?  If a tear drops from the corner of our eye, our teeth grind, or a knot appears in the bottom of our stomach, when we think of something or someone (after the initial mourning, grieving time and normal annual reminders) day in and day out for the rest of our lives, then we have NOT forgiven.  When God forgives, He also forgets.  Maybe there is a scar, but the puss is gone.  When Jesus rose from the dead, His wounds were not oozing with gangrene.  Jesus forgave those who betrayed and crucified Him on the cross.  Who betrayed and crucified Him?  It was the sins of yesterday, today and tomorrow.

Taber, Vincent - in What should We Do With The Memory of Sin? from 9-10/96 Psychology for Living magazine 1-818-821-8400 warns us NOT to despair or obsess, nor to allow memories to become oppressive.  Rather permit them to remind us not to sin again and to be grateful once again for God's forgiveness, mercy and love.  Our attitude and determination might prevent a relapse.  A relapse not only affects us, but our whole family, especially our young children or grandchildren.
Those little moans from inside our heart tell us that we need to forgive 100% not 99%.  Perhaps we need to forgive ourselves, to forgive God, to forgive others.  Did we have an abortion?  Whose fault was it?  Did we give up a baby for adoption?  Did we marry the wrong person?  Whose fault was it?  It takes 2 to tango?  Perhaps it is not what we did, but what we failed to do?  That is still sin.  Sin is anything that separates us from God. 
It can be venial sin.  It can be mortal sin.  It can be sin the size of a mustard seed.
Do not be deceived by believing that ongoing excessive negative emotions are normal or are "me". 
Satan is a roaring invisible lion trying to see who he can deceive.  Satan and his evil demon spirits are invisible and they want to vacation inside us.  They want to rent an apartment inside us.  Most of all they want legal permission to live in us permanently, whether it be to express anger, unforgiveness, depression, or any other self serving negative emotion. The Holy Spirit is also invisible, but available to defeat and evict our enemy.  Ask Jesus into your heart.  Then ask the Holy Spirit for His power to defeat the enemy in your life.  Read the new testament daily.  Go to a church service or church group weekly. Sing to God in the shower. Attend all available healing services

One tool that helps many is one's ability to attend daily Catholic mass, even if one is not a Catholic.  Those who advocate daily communion are Pentecostal pastor Smith Wigglesworth, English psychiatrist Kenneth McAll, Father John Hampsch of California, USA, American television pastors Perry Stone and Paula White, plus Methodist John Wesley. Catholic St. Ignatius of Antioch referred to communion as "the medicine of immortality".  St Augustine (who lived in the 4th century) saw 73 people headed at Mass and then realized that Jesus is now still practicing medicine as He was 2000 years ago.
Catholics encourage us (when we say the "Our Father" and before receiving communion) not only to forgive (and release to God) the living, but also the dead; for they are the ones who have often caused a curse in our family blood line.  This forgiveness often reverses the curse and begins a blessing in our blood line.  What an opportunity.  What a privilege.  The worst that could happen is that we would have peace instead of resentment.  Not a bad trade.  In the Old Testament of the Bible men asked God to forgive their own sins, plus the sins of their children and their forefathers.
In communion we drink Jesus' blood (red wine or red juice) and reflect on the fact that Jesus was punished for our sins so that we can enter sinless into the presence of God.  First we try to make reconciliation with any enemy.  Next we confess our sins (in secret) to God, so that then He can forgive us.  Our sins go out onto the scapegoat, which is Jesus.  In comes the Holy Spirit bringing forgiveness.  It is like a blood transfusion.  Out goes the bad blood and next comes in the good blood.  The life is in the blood.  Spiritual life is in the blood of Jesus Christ.  After we apologize to God, then we invite Jesus to live in our heart.
He always says, "Yes."  He never says, "I will wait till you get fixed," nor "  I will wait till your enemy likes you."  Nope.  He keeps the same rules that He gives us.  He wants us to forgive 70x7 times.  Thus He will forgive us 70x7 times.  Scripture says to do unto others as we want done (later) unto us!  It is a spiritual law of cause and effect.  If we want God to forgive us, we must first forgive - others, especially our enemies.  Scripture also says not to judge, for the way we judge is the way God will judge us.  Judging and unforgiving go together like salt and pepper.  Father God, "We apologize to You right now.  Please send Your angel to protect us from ever again having a judgmental or unforgiving spirit.  In Jesus Name we pray.  Amen."
Sometimes out of obedience we can forgive with our heads, but not with our hearts.  The heart part may need to be a work of mercy and grace by the power of the Holy Spirit.  The heart part may come later as we continue in baby steps to be obedient, regardless of how we feel.  For instance, we love a child, but we will not always feel the love, especially when the baby is crying at midnight, having a tantrum, throwing up, etc.  Nevertheless, we will out of obedience as a parent tend to that baby.  Later on our heart will swell in pride as we see the first baby steps, the first wedding, the 1st grandchild, etc.
(Note.  If someone has violated you, especially sexually or physically, you do not need to allow him/her to continue to hurt you.)  Forgiveness is all about you/me and not the offender. Forgiveness is about not letting anyone control our thoughts especially not control our negative thoughts.  It is not allowing the angry bitter thoughts to control our mental health or defeat our happiness or keep us a victim.  Parties are good, but not pity parties.  These daily negative thoughts affect our hormones and brain chemistry and sabotage us the innocent and not our enemy.  Forgiving is not needing/demanding the offender to apologize. That does not mean the offender is now trustworthy.  Trust takes time to be rebuilt.

Curses

Forgiveness is a good thing to do - daily, weekly, monthly, annually.   Does the sin repeat itself on a regular basis when we become overwhelmed/overcome by negative/harmful feelings?  Is the thing/sin which we confess something in our ancestors/parents as well as in our kids?  Then, connect the dots.  In all likelihood a curse is in existence. 
A curse needs to be recognized and broken, in the name of Jesus.

Unable to Repent

                                                                                Unable to Receive Salvation

Todd, John - John Todd (Tape 2B) - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ayqQ0oH6U2g&feature=related Listen to end of video.  Yes, Christians can have demons BEFORE and AFTER salvation.  Sometimes demons do interfere with one's making a free choice to repent and accept forgiveness from Jesus Christ.

                                                                 Unpardonable,
Unforgivable SIN

There are those who believe that they have committed the unpardonable sin.  This is a popular lie of Satan.  The truly unpardonable sin is not what we do, but what we fail to do.  What is that unpardonable sin of omission?  If we do NOT choose Jesus as our Lord and Savior, then by default we reject Jesus; the curse of being separated from God remains on us. 
Matthew 26:24
- "It had been good for that man if he had not been born."
Matthew 13:32 + Mark 3:29 + Luke 12:10 (KJV) Whosoever shall speak a word against the Son of man (Jesus Christ), it shall be forgiven him, but to him that blasphemes against the Holy Ghost, it shall NOT be forgiven
Both Smith Wigglesworth and Derek Prince cite in their books that if one believes that he has committed the unpardonable sin, then in all likelihood that is NOT true.  In all likelihood it is a "lying spirit" that, IN THE NAME OF JESUS, needs to be bound, cast out, and placed under the feet of Jesus.  The Holy Spirit convicts of sin, but the evil spirit condemns.  The evil spirit tortures the mind.  He is not a nice fellow.  The power/love/mercy of God is always greater than that of evil.  Scripture tells us to resist the devil/torment, in the name of Jesus, and he will flee.  Remember, whisper or yell/speak out loud, rather than pray silently in your mind!  Satan in not a mind reader.  Besides, the spoken Words of God are alive and will do warfare for you in the invisible spiritual world.  Judas, a disciple of Jesus, did NOT repent of his sin, whereas Pontius Pilot (per Tertullian's Apology for Christianity) did and possibly Joseph Caiaphas the high priest (per Jewish archeological records by Sanhedrin and Talmuds stored in the St. Sophia mosque, Constantinople, according to: Jesus Is Lord church pastor Ken Small Yeshua - the Untold Story of Jesus  www.hugs.org )
Messiah spoke to Annas' son-in-law, "Be not afraid, it is I.  You condemned Me that you might go free.  This is the work of My Father. Your only wrong is (that) you have a wicked heart; this you must repent of. This last Lamb you have slain is the One that was appointed before the foundation (of the earth); this sacrifice is made for all men...
This is the last; it is for you...and all mankind...if you will accept it." 
Years ago a similar story was broadcast on radio probably by James Kennedy's Truths that Transform or Dr. Dobson's Focus on the Family.
"The Bible often associates [tearing clothes] with overwhelming sorrow or distress (Genesis 37:29; 2 Kings 19:1; Ezra 9:3). Here the high priest (Caiaphas) disregards Mosaic law, which forbids priests to tear their vestments (Leviticus 10:6; 21:10)."
It then goes on to quote what St. Bede had to say about this passage: 'The drama of Caiaphas tearing his vestments signifies the termination of the Old Covenant priesthood. In contrast, the seamless garment of Jesus is not torn, but remains intact (John 19:23-24), signifying that the new priesthood of Christ will last forever (Hebrews 7:23-24).'" http://catholicmutt.blogspot.com/2010/03/caiaphas.html  The Archko Volume  http://www.archive.org/details/archkovolumeorth028454mbp -

Anderson, Neil T - The Bondage Breaker - www.hispassionministries.com - Chapter 10 Accused by the Father of Lies has a section The Unpardonable SinExcellent!  Basically it says that if we have a tender conscience, we have NOT committed "the unpardonable sin".  Reread the short chapter of Job in the Bible where Satan is the real accuser, trying to give us a guilt trip for all the sins, which we have already confessed.  For all the unconfessed sins, there is always time to repent - until death, when, for the most of us, it is too late, unless God gives us a 2nd chance and resurrects us or allows us to have a near death experience.

Hagin, Kenneth E (senior) -
http://rgm.me/2011/04/20/victory-over-satan/ The Sin Unto Death                         
The Lord reminded Dad Hagin of…scripture: “If any man see his brother sin a sin which is not unto death, he shall ask, and he shall give him life for them that sin not unto death. There is a sin unto death: I do not say that he shall pray for it.” (1 John 5:16)…The Lord pointed out to him that the Scripture didn’t say physical death…Jesus continued, “If you will read the entire 5th chapter of 1st John, you will see that it is talking about…spiritual life and…death. This refers to a believer who can sin a sin unto death, and therefore I say that you shall not pray for it. I told you not to pray for this woman because she sinned a sin unto death.” Papa Hagin told the Lord that this disrupted his theology & would He explain?
Jesus Teaches About The Sin Unto Death - The Lord said, “Remember I told you this woman was My child…filled with the Holy Spirit and she had part in the ministry. You will notice that the scripture says, ‘It is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift.’ I am the heavenly gift. A man under conviction is enlightened, but he has not tasted of Me.” Jesus reminded him of John 3:16 and Romans 6:23. Jesus said, “No one has tasted the heavenly gift until he has accepted Me as Lord and Savior.” Hebrews 6:4-5, said, ‘made partakers of the Holy Ghost.’ Jesus told him that this lady had been baptized in the Holy Ghost and had tasted the good Word of God…that baby Christians cannot commit the sin unto death.
5 Steps To The Sin Unto Death
1st step to the sin unto death is for one to see their lost state and know that Jesus is the only way of salvation.
2nd step is to receive Jesus or be born again.
3rd step is to be filled with the Holy Ghost.
4th step is to have grown out of the babyhood stage of Christianity and tasted the good Word of God.
5th step is to have the gifts of the Spirit operating in their life.
Jesus pointed out to Dad Hagin… scriptures: Hebrews 6:6; 10:26-29.  Jesus explained the last step in the following words. Jesus said, “It is sad that this woman left her husband for another man, but adultery is not the unpardonable sin.  If she would have turned back to Me in repentance, even though she might have had a hundred men, I would have forgiven her. Whatever she might have done, if she had asked Me to forgive her, I would haveEven if she had been a baby Christian when she said, I don’t want Jesus anymore; leave me alone,’ and didn’t actually realize what she was doing, I would have forgiven her. If she had done that because she was tempted and pressed beyond measure, I would forgive her; but she knew exactly what she was doing, and she acted willfully when she said, ‘I don’t want the Lord Jesus anymore.’
I merely showed you this so you might see how the devil can get hold of Christians if they will permit him to

If we fee remorse and are able/willing to repent, then we have not committed the unforgivable sin.

Holliday, Pat - http://www.scribd.com/doc/32802312/Creating-Schizophrenics-by-Powerful-Mind-Controlling-Humans-2-Docx  (edited)- "Christians must live a defensive life that realized that they have an enemy. Satan is their enemy & uses human vessels to make them fail. A man called me. 'Can you help me.  My wife is out of control screaming, "I’ve blasphemed the Holy Ghost. I’m going to hell."'  'I asked him if she would allow me to pray for her. Martha came on the phone.  I asked her if she would let me pray. She said, 'Okay.' Immediately, I bound the demons & led her in a prayer.
She prayed, asking Jesus to save her, repent and forgive her.  She said that she had gone on a web site called the 'Serpent’s Seed.'  'I was doing research. My husband & I are in the ministry. I read on the web site that Eve ate the apple & then this (evil) spirit called the serpent came into her.  'SHE CAME TO ME,' the demon boldly said.  When the (evil) voice spoke to me, I felt something snap in the back of my head & something came into me.  The demon snarled, you’ve now eaten the apple, you can never be saved & you've blasphemed the Holy Ghost.  The (persistent & oppressive) voice torments me day & night, hissing, screaming in my ears. 'I am going bind the demons & call them out.' Martha agreed.
'I bind you Satan in the name of Jesus and command you & your demons to let this woman go free.'"

Franklin, Jentezen - www.jentezenfranklin.org/ - Jentezen and others state that although they &/or others have perceived they have committed THE unpardonable sin, it is NOT true for those who feel ashamed/sorry/guilty/bad for having offended God, but perhaps true for those who only are sad they are caught or NOT sorry at all for having hurt the Trinity.  A heart tender towards God still contains the Holy Spirit and still is in the family of God; or at least, he/she still has time to repent and become adopted by God.

http://jesus-comes.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/11/EBook-Volume-7-Loveletters-from-Jesus-from-2016-01-01-2016-03-10.pdf - "To attack other Christians privately in your heart, with or without your mouth (because Heaven hears you loud and clear, even when your words are not spoken) or certainly more grievously if you attack people in public, targeting ministers of the gospel who have given their lives for Him, You will be disqualified for the Rapture. You will NOT be raptured. The Lord has told us this over and over again. It is a severe warning: if you want to be taken in the Rapture,
you CANNOT be critical of other ministries or other people.  This is not an idle threat, these are the words spoken to me by the Lord Jesus Himself. If you are willfully denouncing a brother or sister, then you have taken the Lord's authority and throne into your own hands and blasphemed the work of the Holy Spirit. YOU WILL NOT BE TAKEN IN THE RAPTURE. 
Blasphemy is the act of insulting or showing contempt or lack of reverence for God, to religious or holy persons or sacred things, or toward something considered sacred or inviolable.  So, in other words, a brother or sister who has given their lives to the Lord to minister the Gospel, that person is holy. and to insult or attack them is a crime against the Holy Spirit."  (BEWARE.  Do NOT allow this admonition TRICK you into submission to a deluded or manipulative pastor who wants control over your free will.  Just leave them without cursing them and pray God will have the upper hand in their lives.  Also notice that not being taken up in the rapture, is not necessarily disqualifying one for eternal life, only postponing it.)

Jesse Penn-Lewis with Evan Roberts - http://hissheep.org/deliverance/war_on_the_saints.html - EVIL SPIRITS SUBSTITUTE FOR SELF - "In like manner, evil spirits will not only endeavor to substitute their own workings in a man's life in the place of God, on the ground of the believer's misconception of the true way of co-acting with God; but they will also seek to substitute their workings for all the mental faculties of the man, i.e., the mind, the reason, the memory, the imagination, the judgment. This is a counterfeit of self through substitution. The person thinks it is himself all the time.note 41 
This substitution by evil spirits of themselves on the ground of the passive surrender to non-use of any part of the inner, or outer, life of the believer, is the basis of deep deception and possession among the most 'surrendered' children of God; the deception and possession taking an entirely spiritual form at first, such as the man having an exaggerated sense of his importance in the Church, his 'world-wide ministry,' his lofty position of influence arising out of his 'divine commission,' his abnormal height of spirituality, and definite and almost unprecedented "experience," which makes him feel he has been placed far above other men. But a tremendous and inevitable fall awaits such an one. He ascends his pinnacle, pushed by the enemy, without any power whatsoever to control the inevitable descent, which must follow when he is undeceived, a crash being the result, shaking the things that can be shaken. Then he experiences awful darkness, and the effects of possession in its true results. The effect of demon possession in its fullest climax is darkness; nothing but darkness; darkness within, darkness without; intense darkness; darkness over the past; darkness enveloping the future. Darkness surrounding God and all His ways.  Here many sink under the horror that they have committed the 'unpardonable sin.'
Some, however, discover that their bitter experience may be turned into light for the Church in its fight with sin and Satan, and as those who have been in the camp of the enemy and heard all his secrets, they become a terror to the forces of evil on their emergence to liberty, with the result that they are assailed with intensified malignity on account of their knowledge of the foe."

Prince, Joseph - The God of Grace - Monday, February 10, 2014 from http://lifetoday.org/video/the-god-of-grace/
Prince learned to focus on the consequences of what Jesus did rather than what Adam did.
Prince, Joseph - 3/6/2015 - http://lifetoday.org/video/the-god-of-grace-6/
http://www.christianpost.com/news/joseph-prince-says-year-long-state-of-depression-taught-him-to-focus-on-preaching-about-gods-grace-114480/#! - Joseph “Prince, pastors New Creation Church, appeared on the Life Today Show - where he said that at 17 he began to lose control over his thought life, leading him to have recurring blasphemous thoughts about God which triggered a year-long state of depression.  "It got to a point where I really thought I had committed the unpardonable sin.  I was confessing every sin I knew how to confess…My friends would look at me like I was messed up then people began to say, 'I think it's his religion,'" said Prince…‘The more I thought to myself, “are my thoughts right, am I being obedient enough?”  the worse it was…One of the most painful things you can experience in life is not so much physical pain, but being self-occupied. Because to the extent you are self-occupied, that's the extent you will be in pain.’  A few years past when he found himself broken & upon crying out to God for help, Prince recounts that he came across 1 John 4:17, which speaks about being like Christ in this world, and since then he became ‘radical’ about God's word, because it delivered him from himself, he explained, ‘I began to realize that when people experience the love of God, it casts out their fear  and frees them from guilt,’ said Prince.  The beginning of his walk in God proved to be difficult, he said, as he noted that his faith increased when his daughter became ill. Prince talked about the process he underwent while prayerfully battling for her health & the submission he went through for God to answer his petition.  Through time, he became spiritually mature & found God calling him to embrace the meaning of love & grace which is an important theme for Prince, who emphasizes that it is because of grace that he is able to have his ministry.
Prior to beginning his ministry, Prince says he ‘cut his spiritual teeth’ as a teenager through the scriptural teachings of evangelist Kenneth Hagin & through an Asian author and preacher known as Watchman Knee.”

Scanlan, Rev Michael  + Cirner, Randall - Deliverance from Evil Spirits - A Weapon for Spiritual Warfare * Servant publications - Catholic perspective - excellent manual for teams - Regarding deliverance preparation, "frequently, the person may not have forgiven someone, because he though he had to feel forgiveness, before he could forgive.  The person needs to know that repentance means a commitment to act righteously...An emotion of sorrow is not the primary requirement in repentance...(Additionally, they may) not realize that they must forgive others who have not repented of their own sins... Frequently the stage of repentance concludes with the person renewing his or her commitment to Jesus as Savior and Lord." 

Spurgeon, Charles - Holy Spirit Power - publisher - www.whitakerhouse.com - Chapter 3 The Holy Spirit, the Great Teacher says, When God instructs us, He shows us that no truly awakened conscience could ever commit that (unforgivable/ unpardonable) sin, because, when it is committed, the conscience is seared and causes NO upset to the sinner...
"The voice of the evil one whispers (lies)...We do not vainly imagine that angels whisper in our ears and that devils do the same.  (Thus, if we "feel" guilty/condemned", then we are innocent.  It is the enemy of our souls who is the condemner.  God does NOT condemn.  God convicts of true sin, leading the sinner to repentance/peace.)

http://endtimespropheticwords.wordpress.com/2007/08/04/the-toronto-blessingor-curse/   This pessimistic author contends that, "the unforgivable sin was the blasphemy of the Holy Spirit, attributing to Satan what was in fact a work of God." 
(It does some good to keep an ear open to healthy debate/criticism, lest we do allow Satan to win a few rounds, especially the last lap of the race of our lives, where/when many awesome saints have tripped up.)
The true/final unforgivable sin would seem to be one's rejection of, refusal to receive, plus ignorance of or failure to find, during one's life time, the Messiah, son of God, Jesus Christ.  Scripture says that ignorance is NOT an acceptable excuse, for all of nature, even the rocks cry out, if need be.  If one's heart is right, God will personally reveal Himself to anyone who asks; likewise He will forgive anyone who asks.  Judas failed to repent (ask forgiveness of Jesus or God). 
Judas may have even recognized Jesus as Messiah, but then later stabbed Him in the back (became a traitor). 
Hebrews 6:4-6 TPNT  
4It is impossible (unlikely/difficult/improbable) for those who have once been enlightened (born again/saved), have tasted the heavenly gifts, have become sharers of the Holy Spirit (baptism), 5and have tasted the full measure of the Word of God and the works of power of the coming age, 6then, if they  fall away, to restore them again to repentance, because they crucify the Son of God anew (again/afresh) for themselves and hold (shame) Him to contempt...8But when it bears thorn plants and thistles (instead of good fruit) it is worthless and close to cursed (on the slippery slope to eternal death), for which the end is to be burned over.

Weymann, Dorothy Mason - Thus Saith God's Word - Scripture Aids for Counseling - MD Productions, Greensboro, North Carolina - Section under Baptism/Gifts reminds us to "warn (others speaking against the miracles/gifts of the Holy Spirit) that attributing the works of the Holy Spirit to the devil is the unpardonable sin."  Matthew 12:32 states, "Whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man (Jesus), it shall be forgiven him, but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come."

Wigglesworth, Smith - Ever Increasing Faith - www.whitakerhouse.com - Chapter 2 Deliverance to the Captives -
A hysterical man came to Wigglesworth crying out that he was lost, due to committing the unpardonable sin.  The Holy Spirit moved Smith to cry out, "Come out you lying spirit."  Immediately the man was at peace.  Wigglesworth says that the devil attacks our mind with his THOUGHTS and FEELINGS of our not being saved or healed, in order to refute/contest/ reverse what God has done.  Wigglesworth says that satanic attack is a good sign that we are in fact saved/healed.  The danger is to allow the devil to make our minds a place of (a residence of) his stronghold.  Instead, we are to "bring into captivity every (lying) thought (that contradicts what Jesus accomplished on earth) to the obedience of (alignment with) Christ (our Messiah, savior, healer, deliverer).

The man came in and cried, 'I have committed the unpardonable sin.'  I said, (speaking to the evil spirit), come out in Jesus' Name.'  He said, 'What is it?  I am free.  Thank God, I never did commit that sin.'  (According to Wigglesworth,) No man living has committed the unpardonable sin, for the good and the evil are preserved until the Holy Ghost is withdrawn from the world.  We are all in a good place of pardon, kept by the power of God."
http://smithwigglesworth.com/index.php/smith-wigglesworth-sermons/ever-increasing-faith/deliverance-to-the-captives - "
She said, 'There is a woman upstairs and she has brought an old man of eighty to be prayed for. He is raving up there and a great crowd is outside the front door, ringing the door-bell and wanting to know what is going on in the house.' The Lord quietly whispered, 'This is what I baptized you for.”'  I carefully opened the door of the room where the man was, desiring to be obedient to what my Lord would say to me. The man was crying and shouting in distress, 'I am lost.  I am lost! I have committed the unpardonable sin. I am lost! I am lost.' My wife said, 'Dad, what shall we do?' The Spirit of the Lord moved me to cry out, 'Come out, thou lying spirit.' In a moment the evil spirit went, and the man was free. Deliverance to the captives. The Lord said to me, 'This is what I baptized you for.'  There is a place where God, through the power of the Holy Ghost, reigns supreme in our lives. The Spirit reveals, unfolds, takes of the things of Christ, shows them to us, and prepares us to be more than a match for Satanic forces...
Satan came along with an 'if.' How many times has Satan come along to you this way?
He says, “After all, you may be deceived. You know you really are not a child of God.”
If the devil comes along and says that you are not saved, it is a pretty sure sign that you are. When he comes and tells you that you are not healed, it may be taken as good evidence that the Lord has sent His word and healed you. The devil knows that if he can capture your thought life, he has won a mighty victory over you. His great business is injecting thoughts, but if you are pure and holy you will instantly shrink from them. God wants us to let the mind that was in Christ Jesus, that pure, holy, humble mind of Christ, be in us...The blood of Jesus Christ and His mighty name are an antidote to all the subtle seeds of unbelief that Satan would sow in your minds...Hard things are always opportunities to get to the Lord more glory when He manifests His power. Every trial is a blessing. "

Woodworth-Etter, Maria - http://2011.ekklesia.lt/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/SIGNS-AND-WONDERS.pdf abridged edition Chapter 24 BLASPHEMY AGAINST THE HOLY GHOST - "Blasphemy against God and all kinds of sin against Him and against mankind will be blotted out, but whosoever speaks against the Holy Ghost hath no forgiveness either in this world or in the world to come.  Christ said this because they said He had an evil spirit and did His mighty works through that agency. So, you see, it is an unpardonable sin to knowingly attribute any of the mighty works of the Holy Ghost to the devil. There has never been a time since the early church when there was so much danger of people committing the unpardonable sin as there is today since the Pentecostal fire has girdled the earth and tens of thousands have received the Holy Ghost, feeling His presence, backed up by signs and wonders and divers operations of the Spirit.  When men and women come in contact with this work of the Holy Ghost, hearing His words and seeing His works, there is danger lest they attribute the power present to some agency other than the Spirit of God.  There is danger lest they condemn the power and condemn God’s servants. How often have we heard ministers say, when they heard men and women and children speaking in other tongues, 'Oh, it is the work of the devil.' Now you hear what God says about it; they are speaking against the Holy Ghost. God has been working in this city and is going to work in much greater measure. We expect to see greater signs and wonders; if the saints stand together as one, pray together and shout victory, God will show Himself a mighty God and a Savior."

Yeager, Michael H - To attribute to Satin what the Holy Spirit does - is (might result in) unforgivable sin. - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5wPDDylztE8 - (Beware Christians, do NOT ridicule/slander holy rollers' laughing/ roaring/barking in the Holy Spirit. Satan can imitate God, but let the Holy Spirit determine the person's motive and the nature of the manifestation - Godly or demonic. Test the spirit, the root and the fruit.)

Secret
Sin

Hagin, Kenneth E - Tongues - Beyond the Upper Room - www.rhema.org - Part 1, Chapter 7 Guideline to Receiving the Holy Spirit  - "Nothing in your life would keep you from being filled with the Holy Ghost.  You have no secret sin that would hinder you from receiving the Holy Spirit...There is no such thing as a secret (personal sin) you you don't know about.  The Holy Ghost or your own conscience will tell you.  And it your conscience doesn't tell you anything, don't  try to drag something up!" (Postscript.  Sometimes the Holy Spirit will reveal at a later date things which He needs to deal with, when we are more spiritually mature, such as curses, ancestral sins, sins committed by others while we were in the womb, traumas, etc.)

 Doubting One's Salvation
                                           Salvation is based on what God says in scripture

& not on what we humans think or feel about it.


Psalms 23:6 TLB Messianic
   6Your goodness and unfailing kindness shall be with me all of my life. 
Afterwards I will live with You (Father God) forever in Your (heavenly) home.
Revelation 3:5 Stern   5.He who wins the victory will, like them, be dressed in white clothing. I will NOT blot his name out of the Book of Life; in fact, I will acknowledge him individually before My father and before  His angels. 6Those who have (spiritual) ears, let them hear what the (Holy) Spirit is saying to the Messianic communities.

Brown, Tom - Devil, Demons and Spiritual Warfare - Chapter 3 Satan is Disarmed - In USA federal law "a pardon is a deed...and delivery is not complete without acceptance.  It may then be rejected by the person to whom it is tendered."  Likewise Jesus' "public act of grace...was intended to bring private blessings.  Thus, you must legally accept God's pardon, offered through the atonement, in order for it to be effective" in your personal life.  Once we accept forgiveness, Satan continues to barrage us with condemnation and lies.  He "hopes that through his accusations he might cause us to hold onto feelings of guilt and shame over our past and forgiven sins...The devil loves it when you (speak/testify and) act according to your feelings" instead of according to what Jesus blood did on the cross and according to what the Word of God says in scripture...If He says that your sin is taken away, who are you to say it is not?"  Regarding sins that have been repented of, NEVER take "the condemnation of our heart and put it above the Word of God."  It is difficult for the Lord to restore you, "if you allow the enemy to keep beating you up for your past.  You must realize that the condemnation of your heart is coming directly from the accusations of the devil.  Mental health facilities often house Christians who cannot let go of their pasts... They have bought the lies of the enemy."  "Do you believe the feelings (emotions and temptations) of your heart or the Word of God? You must decide who is telling the truth.  Is it God," society, self, or Satan?  As Christians we must reject/ resist/refuse/ renounce, in Jesus name, all that contradicts God and each time ASK the Holy Spirit to help and protect us.  The flesh is powerless, but angels and the Holy Spirit bring the missing power into our lives.  Like salmon we can be struggling upstream all our lives, or we can jump up high into God's arms and permit Him to carry us into our destiny.  Jesus, I jump into Your arms, right NOW.  Amen.

Dickerman, Don - When Pigs Move In - www.dondickerman.net - Colleyville, Texas, USA ministry- Other books containing "some" of above more complete information are  Serpents in the Sanctuary and Turmoil in the Temple. - http://www.christianbook.com/Christian/Books/product/981725045?item_no=794617&netp_id=560908&event=ESRCN&item_code=WW&view=covers  video - Web site has on-line application for deliverance.  That section includes a line item sharing that bemoaning one's lack of salvation, after having genuinely repented for any sin, is an indication of demonic oppression.  This is especially true for a born-again Christian.  If you are not a believer in Christ as Lord and Messiah, just repent of your sins right now, and immediately ask His Holy Spirit to come and dwell in your heart.  The Trinity always says, "Yes."

Hegstrom, Paul - The Brain &  the Spoken Word  DVD#3 - www.lifesillsintl.org Aurora, Colorado, USA - Sometimes Satan will cause a Christian to doubt his/her salvation due to one's being emotionally stuck in his development due to a prior trauma.  Although one's human spirit may belong to Jesus, one's mind/will/ emotions and perhaps body may be still an infant when it comes to responding maturely/healthy.  Satan will attempt to cause delusions, confusion, double mindedness, psychosis, etc. in order to sabotage us.  (If our trauma happened at age 2, we will tend to respond like a toddler.  If our trauma happened at age 5, our emotional reactions will tend to mirror a 5 year old.  If our trauma happened in the womb, we can be caught off guard as to where "that overreaction" came from.)  Satan is an opportunist.  He never plays fair.  Fortunately, the Holy Spirit can help shed light on root issues and help eradicate them - permanently.

Moore, Beth - Affliction - 6/26/2013 - http://www.lightsource.com/ministry/life-today/beth-moore-affliction-part-6-349480.html A guilty conscience will attempt to block one's belief that he/she is saved.

Walden, Franklin (senior) www.franklinwaldenministries.org - The Unmistakable, Visible Anointing- Following God's Calling for over One-Half Century - Chapter 4 Running from God "I had been to the altar before and had even been baptized as a child in Sunday School.  But that morning at Glad Tidings Temple, I was truly born again.  My battles were NOT over just because I had been born again (as a adult).  In fact, they had multiplied, because Satan wanted me to doubt my salvation.  Many times later, he would come to me and say, 'Where did you get saved?'  I'd say, 'I was saved when my daddy baptized (christened) me in the river, years ago when I was just a little fellow.'  But Satan wouldn't leave me alone.  I would pray and repent again and again.  But still Satan would return and we would start the cycle all over again.  One day when Satan was tormenting me, the Holy Ghost spoke to me and said, 'Tell him the day I healed you of that heart attack at Glad Tiding Temple is the day I forgave you of your sins and you were born again'...That gave me something to anchor onto, and after that the devil left me alone."

COMMENTARY: As parents, bosses, mates, siblings, etc, we often accidentally or sometimes deliberately or even in our immaturity and stupidity cause harm to another.  Satan clothed as a snake (3 Baruch 9:7 He took the serpent as a garment.), deceived and tricked Eve, who in turn enticed Adam.  Papa God allowed them to choose, to disobey Him, and for harm to come upon the entire world as a consequence.  What horror.  What agony to realize the travesty of their choice upon themselves, upon their mate, upon their children, upon all their descendents.  What turmoil to realize that Satan had deliberately been the root cause.  What turmoil for Papa God to realize that He had allowed this. What agony of Papa God to see the hurt He had allowed through the freedom of choice and through the deception of the enemy.  Yes, Papa God, please forgive all our ancestors.  Yes, Papa God, please forgive us.  Yes, Papa God, we forgive You.  Yes, Papa God, we recognize who the real enemy or traitor is - Satan.  Yes, Papa God, like Job, we repent for all the sins of our ancestors, plus, in Jesus name, we forbid any iniquity to be transmitted to/inherited by our seed.  We pray and confess like Joseph that what the enemy intended for evil will be transformed like a butterfly caterpillar into something beautiful for You and Your Kingdom.  Thank you for remedying the original sin of Adam and Eve by sending Your Son Jesus the Messiah.  You are a wonderful heavenly Father that can reverse our mistakes.  We thank You and bless You with great joy.  Amen.

Losing One's Salvation/Destiny

Losing Salvation/Destiny Scripture

Revelation 3:5 - The one who is victorious will, like them, be dressed in white. I will never blot out the name of that person from the book of life, but will acknowledge that name before my Father and his angels.

Losing Salvation/Destiny Resources

Brown, Rebecca - http://www.harvestwarriors.com/newsletters/April%202004%20-%20A%20View%20From%20Heaven.pdf
"The angel also told me something astonishing. He said, 'One of the greatest stumbling blocks within the Church is the complete lack of fear of God and the teaching of a cheap grace. Few there are who have any fear of the loss of their
 salvation through continued willful sin
. They believe they can continuously live in premeditated sin and still be forgiven and go to heaven. They have no fear of God’s chastisement on their lives. Indeed, when trouble comes into their life, not once do they ever think about the fact that it may be the result of their own actions.'”

Brown
, Tom - Can Christians Lose Their Salvation? - http://www.tbm.org/losesalvation.htm - Tom believes that, "No one has ever fallen away from the Lord who was growing. People usually backslide when they stop growing. As long as you are growing, you can never (permanently) backslide (to a point of no return to God)."  (God is ALWAYS ready to forgive the sinner and the backslider.)  Tom wants those who profess to be Christians to, "Take 2 Timothy 2:11-12...'If we died with Him, we will also live with Him; if we endure, we will also reign with Him.'  No one has any problems with this so far. It is the next statement that gives Christians problems. 'If we disown Him, He will also disown us.'  Notice the pronouns 'we' and 'us.' These pronouns clearly refer to us (born-again, Holy Spirit filled) believers (in Jesus Messiah). God promises to disown us (who make a legal claim to Jesus as Savior) if we disown Him. This warning must be taken seriously."  (A major problem with most professing Christians is that they have never been water baptized as adults + they have never asked Jesus to baptize them with His Holy Spirit.  The infilling of the Holy Spirit is needed for both spiritual enlightenment and spiritual warfare. http://www.tbm.org/tongues.htm + http://www.tbm.org/holy_spirit_in_you.htm  

Clark, Dennis & Jen - Practicing God's Presence 24/7 - workbook - www.forgive123.com www.kingdomlifechurch.us  www.touchinggod.net  www.deepreliefnow.com - "1st deal with any negative emotion through forgiveness, and then you have the authority to deal with thoughts and mental strongholds...Always deal with the negative emotion before thoughts...
If there is an unscriptural thought, or lie, attached: 1. After forgiving and getting  peace, renounce the lie. 
2. In prayer, ask the Holy Spirit for the Truth.  'Lord, what do You say.'  A scripture or scriptural thought will come to mind.  Receive it and be sure to write it down."  "Forgiveness is the God Tool that takes you out of Enemy Territory into God Territory.  (At salvation) God rescued from the kingdom of darkness and granted you citizenship in the kingdom of God.  Forgiveness keeps you there...If you are a born again believer, it doesn't mean you have lost your salvation, when you temporarily get in Enemy Territory, any more than a US citizen loses their citizenship if they visit a war zone in a foreign country.  It just means that you need to get back into God Territory, so you will be safe."  "When you are hurting, you will identify with the same hurts in others [thus sometimes (trigger one another's wounds)] or project your own issues on others.  Hurt people (often) overreact to even mild stimulation, lash out at others, withdraw from relationships, put up walls, see life through distorted lenses, and can be easily offended.  Hurt people (can) hurt people... When you are healed, even the area where you were wounded the most can become your greatest anointing to minister."

When we look at our own shortcomings without them being covered with the blood of Jesus, we will be in agreement with Satan and out of agreement with God, Who made provision for forgiveness for all sin.

Ditto, Laurie - https://ofm6z46z825qpxk83fa00q1a-wpengine.netdna-ssl.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/04/IS997Transcript_Ditto.pdf (edited)
LAURIE: I was so
depressed. I had planned my suicide different times. My life just didn't feel.  I had hurt, pain & rejection inside of me. I didn't know what to do with it. The only acceptable answer was just to find a way to end the pain.
SID: Then you get a flyer in the mail about an IHOP conference in another state.
SID: You get there in the prayer room.  What happened?
LAURIE: When I got there, I didn't know what to expect. People worship God in different ways. The voice of God asked me, "What do you want?" I wanted to know if speaking in tongues was real. So, then I got it. I love speaking in tongues.
LAURIE: I did. In an instant, I knew that the man Jesus Christ was alive. He was standing there, He was made out of light. He wanted me to see Him for who He really is. He turned the volume up so fantastically. It was like a dimmer switch that just was so bright. It was as if it was stronger than you were looking in the sun & I had to close my eyes.
LAURIE: Jesus turned the volume and Himself down so that we could behold Him.
I believe now that we can only behold Him to the degree that we love and obey Him.
LAURIE: Yes. The Lord had me look inside Him. He wanted me to give Him something. I was concerned about giving Him the pain, I didn't know how. So, I kept telling Him, no. People say you can't say no to Jesus, but we say no to Jesus all the time. He's so patient. It was as if I was watching a movie inside of Him.  That movie was Jesus dancing with this beautiful bride. He was doing a very specific dance with her. While she would turn, I would notice the fire in His eyes. He has such beautiful fire for the one that He loves. Then the darkness would try and sneak up and touch this girl's dress. As it would sneak up, His eyes turned into this fire. You don't mess with his bride.  As she turned and danced, I ached inside. I've never been loved like that. I knew that if I could have that 1 thing, my life would be complete. If somebody would love me like that. Not just somebody, but this God Who's fantastic. When I looked at her feet, I realized those were my ankles. I have very pretty ankles.  It was me. It was me.  He kept asking me for something. I realized I can trust this man. When
I gave the pain to Jesus, He put his forehead to my forehead. I asked Him, "Is there anything I can do for you?" He said, "Go tell others about Me." When I came out of the vision was, I was set free. I used to smoke 3.5 packs of cigarettes a day.
I did not need the
depression medication I was on anymore. He actually changed who I am. I didn't used to be like this. I am supercharged now.
SID: In 2008 God took you to hell (where) you saw some relatives (and) many Christians. I know that's hard to believe, but you'll understand.
LAURIE: I was in an evangelism meeting worshiping in the back with my eyes closed. Soon the heat came in the room. 
I knew something was happening. I opened my eyes. The front of the room opened.  Hell was right there. An arm without fingers came flying out of hell, grabbed ahold of my spirit and sucked me in. Those hell doors are thick, heavy, and when they slammed shut, I immediately knew exactly where I was.
LAURIE: 3 things were spoken over me. 1st. You are
in hell eternally for unforgiveness. 2nd. The worst regret you can ever imagine (begins now). 3rd. There was no way out of hell.  There's no way that I will ever be guilty of exaggerating hell.
It's worse than any words that I can come up with. When I got there, just the extreme heat started causing my skin to drip off of me. The sound of the people screaming broke my eardrums and caused pain inside of me. I knew this was going to go on eternally. There was no way out of it. My bones, my body twisted in so many ways, breaking. I felt my back break.  Excruciating pain. There is not one drop of relief, water (or) light. You can never get to another human being to share that pain. You actually
become sin. You start looking like this growth. You actually lose the formation of a human being that was made in the image of God. It's horrific, horrific. I never want to go back.
LAURIE: Imagine trying to live your life with no God. I was never going to touch my grand baby's face again. Even arguing with my husband, not that that's cool, but you were never going to get to do any of that. You were never going to get to: say you were sorry, (or) fix anything. To always be in pain.  To know that horror kept ramping up.  To know evil was going to keep getting worse, worse and worse, never to end. That was the thing. It wasn't like you could reach a pinnacle.
LAURIE:
In hell, it worked the same as in heaven, my full brain operated. I knew all of Matthew 18. I knew every scripture that I'd ever read, and I'd read the whole Bible. It made complete sense and was completely righteous that I was in hell. I became hate. I hated and continued to hate. There were people there (in hell) just like me who believed Jesus is the Lord God, but they refused to obey Him. They said, "We love You. We love You." But the Scriptures teach, if you love Me, then obey Me. I wouldn't. I wouldn't forgive.
LAURIE: It was the worst thing to know that in heaven Jesus had been so patient. He was willing to forgive me everything, everything, yet I couldn't forgive small offenses. In my life, it felt like these things had broken me. But in reality, to everything that the Lord had forgiven me of, they were small.
SID:
How did you get out of hell?
LAURIE: As quickly as I went into hell, these doors opened, and something brought me out so fast. I reentered the room, I was screaming. My friend who was running the meeting came to the back, because I was so disruptive.
LAURIE: My good friend (at the IHOP) was shaking me, asking, "What's wrong, what's wrong, what's wrong?"
I said to him, "I've been to hell." Everything changed in that minute. As transforming as it was to go to heaven and meet Jesus Christ, that transformation does not compare to the transformation of having been to hell.
LAURIE: When the Lord spoke to me and finally healed my heart, He said, "I took you to hell, because I love you." If God had not shown that to me, if I had died without Him showing that to me, I know I'd be there right now. He loves me and He's mighty to say it, and in my instance, that's what it took.
SID: What do you believe is the
biggest lie of the devil out there?
LAURIE: I think, "
Once saved, always saved" is a hell conspiracy, the biggest lie, because the idea behind that, is that I'm going to give my life to Jesus today, He'll wipe away all my past sins, and it doesn't matter how I live anymore.
LAURIE: It grieves Jesus. It should grieve us. Until you heal that you will constantly
gossip. You need to go to Jesus and get your identity 1st. Gossip murders a person's reputation. This is very, very serious. I've made a salt covenant with my tongue with the Holy Spirit, because that is one of the 1st sins that I was guilty of. We think, well, it doesn't matter.
Of course, every sin matters and is recorded (in heaven AND hell, until forgiven).
SID: When you go to bed, you do something, tell me about that.
LAURIE:
Before I go to sleep, I talk to Jesus, tell Him how much I love Him, and ask Him, "Lord, how did I do today?" Sometimes, He's like, "Laurie, you do this and you need to go fix it." Other times He tells me, "You did this and I don't want you to do that anymore." He uses it as a learning because there's a difference between immaturity and rebellion. When I'm rebellious, He needs me to fix it. If I'm just immature, He just trains me in a new way of doing things.
SID: I've always repented so wide. I find that if I'll do it instantly, rapidly, it's easier than if I let it get infected in me.
LAURIE: I try and teach repentance in 4 parts; #1, agree with God that what you're doing is a sin. #2, have Godly sorrow over that sin. It's more than just being sorry. Sorry, you'll do it again. Godly sorrow hurts you. #3, you confess your sin, one to another.  The Bible says, you'll be fervently healed. #4, you have to put something in place in your life that you will never do that again. I help people figure out what #4 do you need, so that you don't sin against God again.  Sometimes we have to put a few $4's there, and God completes that work for us because He loves us so much. But repentance is the only acceptable sacrifice for my sin.
SID: Would you lead us in prayer for repentance?
LAURIE: Oh, Jesus, I love you. I love you, Father, I love you Holy Spirit. Thank You that You came to pay the ultimate price. You say we're worth it. Oh worthy, worthy, worthy Jesus are You. We come asking, God make us holy. Give us a hunger and a desire for holiness. God, come right now and convict us of our sin that we need to be free. We need to be set free from the ways of the devil. God if the hell conspiracy is in any of us, Jesus, set us free. Every sin that I commit needs to be brought to You repented of. God, make me holy, and with that holiness comes more of Your presence.
Let me rest in the assurance. You said to be holy, as your Father in Heaven is holy, I desire that, we want that, God. Would You come, wrap that around us and make us fully Yours, and rest in Your arms. We don't want any part hiding. Every part of us that is dark, Lord, shine your light. We love you. We love you, Jesus. In your name, we believe you're changing us. Hallelujah
. Amen

http://www.greatbiblestudy.com/deliverance_faq.php - Does having a demon mean that the person has lost their salvation until they are delivered? John 3:16 tells us the bases of our salvation, NOT whether or not we have a demon. The daughter of Abraham who was freed from a spirit of infirmity was an example of a believer who had a demon. Jesus never positively referred to somebody as a child of Abraham unless they were actual believers, and He slammed the Pharisees for considering themselves children of Abraham, because they didn't share in the faith of Abraham, and made it clear that they were not really children of Abraham. Therefore, if Jesus takes joy in considering somebody a child of Abraham, it's a honor and means that they are a true believer.  [SPIRITUAL INSIGHT: Salvation fixes/saves the human spirit.  Baptism in the Holy Spirit helps to sanctify the mind/and body.  It takes an entire lifetime to mature/grow up in the Lord.  Many demons are INHERITED from ancestors.  That is one reason men such as Job in the Old Testament repented for their own sins as well as for their families (blood relatives) and individuals over whom they had legal or moral responsibility.  The blood of Jesus removes sin, whereas Jesus body, the 39 stripes removes physical and mental disease/deformity/ defects.]
Don't demons automatically leave at the time of salvation? No, this is an unbiblical assumption that nobody can back up with scripture (unless they twist it). Nowhere in the Bible does it say that we will automatically shed all our bondages at the time of salvation. Many demons cause health problems, and roughly half of the healings Jesus did in Matthew were actually deliverances from such evil spirits, therefore, if people automatically shed their bondages at the time of salvation, I would expect many many healings to automatically take place the moment they believe upon Jesus. Personally, I don't know of one of those cases. Cancer is known to be demonic in almost every situation, therefore, I would expect cancer to leave automatically at the time a person accepts Jesus, if we automatically shed all our demons when we are born again. The problem is, this is a faulty theology which keeps people from seeking the help they need, because it makes them believe that they can't have demons, therefore denying the problem. This belief that demons automatically leave at the time of salvation is what they are talking about in 1 Timothy 4:1, Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils. The belief is unbiblical, and based upon assumptions, and furthermore, experience tells me otherwise.
How can a demon dwell within a believer who has the Holy Spirit? Many believe that anybody who has the Holy Spirit is immune from demonic bondage. This theology usually stems from a faulty belief that the soul (mind) and the spirit are the same things. The moment we are born again, our spirits are reborn and the Holy Spirit is united with our spirit. The soul (mind) of a man is not instantly reborn as the spirit is, but rather we are told to be transformed by the renewing of our minds, which doesn't happen instantly. Our souls is where the dirt lies, and where the demons dwell, not our spirits. Therefore, there is no reason left to believe that a Christian is immune from demonic bondage, because their souls are usually on the dirty side until they are renewed over time. If the soul and the spirit were the same things, you would instantly be a perfect person, never to sin again, once you are born again. There would be no 'evil' left in you, no desires to do wrong, and you would hate it bitterly because you would be perfect in your mind/soul and united with God, therefore there would be no room to sin. In John 8:31-34, Jesus tells us that even though they were believers, they were held slaves to sin because they were ignorant of the truth; this proves that Christians can be in bondage to darkness. If a demon can affect our minds (souls), they can do an awfully lot of damage. Look at what mental illness can do to people through affecting the mind! They can cause the person to have unspeakable desires, thoughts, emotions, and do unthinkable things.
Can a person have a demon without knowing it? Yes. 2 primary reasons for this would be, (a) ignorance, as they don't understand what is the true source of their problem, and (b) a demon(s) may be there, but isn't really doing anything noticeable at the time. Demons are like people in the sense that they can choose to be manifesting themselves
or not; they can choose if they want to cause problems at the moment or not. When a person seeks deliverance from demons, and turns to the occult for help, the person who tries to 'deliver' them can just coax the demons to 'hide' and fake a 'deliverance', thus proving that demons can and do 'hide' if it benefits them. Sometimes a demon can lie dormant in a person's life, and then when that person enters the ministry, the demon manifests because it wants to shut the minister down and keep him out of the ministry."  [SPIRITUAL INSIGHT = Pursue intimacy with Christ.  Concentrate on Him and NOT demons.  Worship and praise terrify evil spirits.  In such an atmosphere one has great protection.]

"The gospel...ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory...unless ye have believed in vain (1 Corinthians 15:1-2)...Hold fast to the Gospel" to "guarantee your salvation...“You can’t just walk down the aisle, ask Jesus into your heart, then go live like the devil and still make it to heaven. Forget it!”  
(In other words, Jesus will never divorce you, if you never divorce Him.  All human marriages have bumps and growing pains; likewise our relationship with the Trinity has a growth curve.  Parents do NOT divorce their kids; neither will God divorce His kids; God is always waiting for us to return to Him, even if it be on our death bed!)

Kerr, Kat - Revealing Heaven on TN Radio (Kat Kerr) 1/2/2015 @ http://jesusstories.info If we will NOT be double minded and will hold out through the death throws of a person, God will allow our intercession to prevail and give that person 101% opportunity to choose Him and eternal life. Hooray.  This is because Jesus took the keys of death and hell from Satan on the 3rd day.  Generally, a relative/family member has more spiritual authority over his/her mate/child than a prophet/evangelist, so let us not neglect/fail to pray/decree/declare over our loved ones, in Jesus' name:
I declare you become a mighty child of God.  Be free in Jesus Christ. 
I declare you will NOT miss your destiny. 
I declare you become a living testimony of Jesus Christ. 
No one can escape those prayers in atmosphere around them nor their guardian angel to enforce/employ/accommodate them.  God can/will even save/heal one in a coma as the spirit/soul is awake 24/7.
We do not need to be/act perfect, but we do need to repent often, even of our attitudes, whenever they fall short of love.
We can lose our salvation if we at a later date choose and live an lifestyle contrary to the nature of the Trinity.
A good evidence of this is Matthew+7%3A21-23&version=NKJV -
21 Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven,
but he who does the will of My Father in heaven.

22
Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name,
cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’

23
Then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’ 
Notice that very FEW of us today operate in a daily faith that results in demons fleeing. Thus, we need to HONOR HIM continually as spiritual head of our household/business/ministry, which we represent.  We must not shame/defame Him. 
Judas repented to the clergy, but he did NOT repent to Jesus.  He self-destructed.  Notice it is our fruit and our character that is of value to Him and not our spiritual acts, for which He gets the fame, not us.  From the age of 12 on get that sin out of one's life.

Larson, Bob - Demon Proofing Prayers - www.spiritualfreedomchurch.org - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - "Most people do not get free (from demons) all at once (in fact, I don't think anybody does), we need to keep walking out our freedom (in Christ).  Your eternal salvation can be (100%) achieved (guaranteed) in a moment of decision, but your (emotional/mental) salvation from the bondages (character defects) of your past, and the (inherited iniquities of) past generations of your family, can take a long time...You will (may) need to revisit the subject" (from time to time, as Satan will test to see if he can move back into your family).  [Perhaps one can comprehend spiritual rejection (where we reject Christ and then by default Christ rejects us) with an illustration:
When a landlord sells his condos/building, he may have tenants remaining in the property.  The new owner owns the real estate, but still has to contend with the tenants, who will remain until they voluntarily move or are evicted.  God buys and owns us when we ask for and accept the price His son Jesus paid for our sins. Our bodies are called the temple of the Holy Spirit, Who moves into our heart/master bedroom/choice condo.  However there are other rooms/condos occupied by our unhealed wounds/soul-pieces/bodies and tenants/demons/squatters.  Unless past/present personal/ancestral/family hurts are healed and unless demons are evicted, there is present/future disharmony between owner and occupants.  Another illustration: A pastor recently broadcast the statement that one cannot demand to move into a new home here, or in heaven, unless we have a relationship with the owner of the home.  No relationship; no move in, here or in heaven.  FINALLY, We personally believe, that all individuals have up to their death (and even between death and hell) to repent and get right with God.]

Releasing/Loosing the Hurt/Hurter

Archer, Don - http://www.theabaconian.com/2013/07/16/dr-ron-archer-offers-remedies-to-overcome-lifes-storms/ (edited)
"On the point of forgiveness, Dr. Archer said that people are not being blessed because of issues with unforgiveness. While they believe that unforgiveness will kill their enemies, it is like a poison they are taking into their bodies, and it is slowly killing them. 'You have to look beyond the source, and look at what’s behind it, and now you start to do battle,' Dr. Archer assured. 'I could not forgive until I realized [that I needed to] stop looking at them as human beings, but as children of God who need restoration, who need love and need to be forgiven. Forgiveness is not for them; forgiveness is for me.  'Are you tired of missing your blessing? Are you tired of being in the desert?  Are you tired of being sick and tired, of holding on to your pain, and your anger and your vengeance, and wondering why you’re not being heard?  The #1 reason why people are still suffering emotional pain is because they can’t let go.'  Making his final point on persecution, he said the the Bible still calls blessed, those who are persecuted.  'Persecution is a compliment; it means you got game,' Dr. Archer declared. 'Everybody in this room is like a teabag; you don’t know how strong you are until God puts you in some hot water, and what’s on the inside of you will come out in the storm.  He isn’t trying to kill you; He’s trying to liberate you to show what’s inside of you. That’s how we overcome and turn pain into power; it starts in the mind.'  Dr. Archer left the attendees with 5 H's of how you transform pain into power: head, heart, hands, habits and humanity. The head simply means that we must change our way of thinking. The heart deals with forgiveness."

One can’t evict the devil off his own property.  If we hate, the devil has title deed to the hate portion of our soul.
True forgiveness removes all evil entitlement from our spiritual enemy. Forgiveness is an act of our will, not a feeling.

Transcript https://lifetoday.org/assets/files/1-21-20e-Giglio-2.pdf
See God as a perfect Father.  Say, I'm not forsaken. I'm accepted. I'm chosen. I'm adopted.
I'm loved, valued and prized by God. See self in a new way.
Probably the most important step in this journey is to forgive our earthly and perhaps our heavenly dad .
“I think the power of forgiveness is the key that unlocks the prison door.  It doesn't let the other person out.
It lets us out. Forgiveness opens the door from our past and lets us out of our past into our future.
It's not letting the other person out of whatever they did.  It is letting us out of whatever they did to us.
That's the power of forgiveness…With a shovel God gave forgiveness to us.
But it's so amazing how I want it in the shovelful, but I dish it out in the teaspoonful.”
“Christ died before I even knew I needed a savior. So God's justice moved into action
before any of us deserved to be forgiven, admitted that we were sinners, or even confessed.”
“to say to a dad ‘I forgive you’ is NOT the same as saying, ‘You don't need to be punished.’
You can forgive your dad and turn your dad into the authorities in the same phone call.
You could forgive your dad and say, ‘I can't be in a home alone with you.’
You could forgive your dad and say, ‘There has to be a boundary in our life from this point forward.’
You can forgive your dad and still have justice” (preferably God’s which is superior to our’s).
'But justice and forgiveness are not the same thing. Forgiveness is releasing. It's saying…
God forgave me.  Therefore out of that sense of forgiveness I'm going to release you.
Not that we sweep everything under the rug.'  Every time we say that, ‘I'll never be like my dad,
I'll never treat mom like my dad, my wife like my dad treated our mom. I'll never treat my kids like my dad treated me.
I'll never be an alcoholic. I'll never be a workaholic. I'll never, never, never, never’...What are we doing? 
We're rehearsing the negative…ingraining in our minds the thing that we are not going to do versus saying, ‘I have a perfect heavenly Father. I'm coming to know Him through Jesus Christ. I have his D.N.A. spiritually in me because I have been born again. On my spiritual birth certificate it just simply says Father, Son, Holy Spirit and Louie.
That's my new spiritual birth (day).’  So out of that I want to start saying, ‘I want to be like my Dad. I want to treat people like my Dad treats people. I want to talk to people like my heavenly Father talks to people.’ What am I doing now? 
I am creating a positive picture of who I am and who I can be versus rehearsing the negative…poison (that) keeps us locked in the prison of our past.
(Our) choice…We can either look back at the past…broken relationship, back at the abuse or…abandonment.  
If we do, there goes our life again...Or we can set our gaze towards this Father Who is on record…saying, ‘That's My son…My daughter…Here's how much I love them.’
Then we share Father God’s view of us:  ‘I'm not abandoned. I'm chosen. I'm not forsaken, I'm sought after.
I am not just somebody, I'm a daughter of the King of the universe. I'm a son of Almighty God.’
I think 1 of the most powerful things we can do is agree with God. Pride is disagreeing with God. Humility is agreeing with God. The 7 words I think will change our lives are the words:  I am who You say I am. I'm NOT who my earthly dad said I am, even if he said I was great. I'm more than that. ‘I'm not abandoned. I'm not divorced. I'm not abused. I'm not forsaken. I'm not disinterested. I am who You say I am.’  It sounds prideful to step into that moment, but it is really just humility to say I agree with God. ‘I AM prized, loved, valued and believed in by the King of the universe.’”

-
Do NOT take it personally
.-
You must understand,” I explain, “that the only way to ‘not take it personally’, is to take it immediately to the Father”...
If it were only the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, there would be no need for our perfection.  But that isn’t where it ends, is it? In the Word of God, we are told that Jesus is to have a Bride—glorious, and without a spot or wrinkle. If Jesus is to have a bride that is gloriously perfect, then He must be able to understand His Bride. He must suffer as a flesh and blood man in order to do that...
If I came to Japan, a foreign country, alone, without my wife, Judith, and then returned to America and tried to relate to her all that I experienced there, she would not be able to relate fully to the Japanese culture. Had she experienced what I experienced by living in the midst of them , and she would fully understand how beauty and order are inherent in Japanese culture, from the lace seat covers in cars, to the individually wrapped and sized fruits in the stores...
In the same way, Jesus had to be born to the experience of personal human suffering, in order for Him to personally understand us in our sufferings (and vice versa)...
Paul...says in Colossians 1:24 “[I] now rejoice in my sufferings for you, and fill up that which is behind (lacking) of the afflictions of Christ, in my flesh, for His Body’s sake, which is the Church.”  Here is the part that helps us as ministers. In verses 25-27, it says, “Whereof I am made a minister, according to the dispensation of God which is given to me for you, to fulfill the Word of God—even the mystery which hath been hid from the ages and from generations; but now is made manifest to His saints. To whom God would make known, what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; what is: Christ in you, the hope of glory.”  This is what this teaching is all about. It is about getting Christ in you, Christ, the hope of your glory. We are talking about the transition that takes place from a “knowing” experience, to a “personal” experience. We are talk ing about that transition that comes from fellowshipping Christ in His sufferings, in a way that we know what we are experiencing; but we “don’t take it personally"...
If we don’t change that which is “within”, we cannot succeed in portraying Christ in our everyday living...
When I don’t take it personally it disciplines my life to stay dead (to myself and alive) in Christ Jesus...
Jesus didn’t say, or do anything, unless He heard, or saw, His Father say it, or do it...
Jesus is continually showing us the importance of speaking and communicating with the Father for ourselves as individuals. He wants it to be an individual relationship.  That is the key in learning to NOT take it personally...
For, if you are dead; and your life is hidden with Christ, you cannot take things personally. If you do; and, because of your testimony for Jesus, a person puts a gun in your face and says, “I’m going to kill you!” you will run to try and save your life...My heart and mind cried out to God, “Father...What is my responsibility to You in this situation? I need Your wisdom"...
Our Father in heaven knew something that I didn’t know. He knew how to help me say the right words to get to the boy’s heart. Romans 8:28, says, “We know that all things work together for good to them that love God"...
There were a lot of reasons I could have taken it personally. However, because of the heart of the Father, I could not hate...
One reason that it is very important we don’t take things personally, is, because from our eyes, we only see one side...
(The bully/terrorist) was crying, and this is what he said, “I don’t understand.  I got my hair cut; I don’t do drugs anymore; I don’t cuss and swear; I read the Bible and I pray. I go to church; my sister gave her heart to Jesus; and now, God is taking you away from me. Why?”  That was very hard for me.  I could only tell him that there were others like him in the world that Jesus wanted me to reach; that he was now part of a family with Jesus; that we would keep in touch; and, most
most importantly, that I was proud of him.  What if I had taken it personally, that night? What if I had called the police when he did what he did to my (sons,) house, my mother, or my wife?
#4 - EXERCISE—THE KEY TO GROWING UP - Now, I want to spend some time helping you to know what to do in these situations.  I want to encourage you, that if you ask the Lord to help you understand this, He won’t start you with someone with a knife at your throat. He will start out with smaller things, like a disagreement with your brother or sister, your husband or wife, your neighbor, or somebody on the highway. How do you know what you should do in those times...
How you think about what you sense, is the act of exercising your senses...
We must begin to exercise our senses to discern 2 things—either good or evil...
The problem comes if we take it personally, and we don’t take it to the Father. How do we take it to the Father.
Perhaps I see something that causes my mind to think lustfully.  What do I do with that thought? If I take it personally, think about it in my mind, it will become sin. However, I am not allowed to do that, because I remember that Colossians 3:3 tells me that I am dead and buried with Christ in God...
When sin enters
our body, we die, because sin cuts off our fellowship and communication with the Father...
The question is not whether you have sinned. The question is, rather, what do you do with sin when you see it, hear it, smell it, taste it or touch it?  Do you take it personally and try to deal with it with your own wisdom; or do you take it to the Father?  Jesus taught us by word and example how to bruise Satan’s head and be restored in fellowship with our Father...
"In our lives, we must begin to exercise our senses to discern 2 things: either good or evil. You may be saying, 'Henry, I know the difference. What’s the problem?' The problem comes if we take it personally and don’t take it to the Father. How do we take it to the Father... When sin comes and rules in your body, you lose fellowship with your Father. Thank God, through Jesus Christ, you are not condemned and sentenced to death anymore. You can confess your sin; and He is faithful and just to forgive you.  The question is not whether you have sinned. The question is, rather, what do you do with sin when you see, hear, smell, taste or touch it?  Do you take it personally and try to deal with it with your own wisdom; or do you take it to the Father?  We are talking about walking in fellowship with the Father, not allowing anything to break that fellowship.
In Romans Chapter 8, Paul asks if anything or anyone can separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord? He answers that question with a resounding, 'No!'  We must agree with Him, and allow nothing and no one the ability to separate us from fellowship with our Father. He desires that from us. It is absolutely vital that fellowship with Him is restored. It was lost in the Garden of Eden.  The Father said that in order for it to be restored, the woman would bear children in hard labor; and that her Child (Jesus, the Messiah) would bruise the serpent’s head. Are you one of her children? Are you one of the sons or daughter of Adam and Eve? Jesus taught us by word and example how to bruise Satan’s head and be restored in fellowship with our Father.  If, as you are reading this book, you realize that you have never (sufficiently) taken the 'good news' of Jesus’ birth, death and (especially His) resurrection (power) personally, now may be your time to begin exercising your senses unto life and not unto death.  Please pray with me:
My Father in heaven, I come before You as You made me, recognizing the fact that I was born to die. I now receive the faith to believe in You as a God that has eyes that see, ears that hear, hands that can touch, a nose that smells, and a taste that can tell the bitter from the sweet, and the good from the evil. You are also a God, who listens and wants to hear my voice, while walking in the Garden of Eden.  From this day forth, with my will, I desire that fellowship to become a reality in my daily walk throughout the rest of my life. I ask You to come into my heart and my life, freely giving to me that ability to communicate and fellowship with You.  I recognize that I have been dead in fellowship with You because of my sins.  I have hidden away as Adam and Eve hid themselves; and have sought to provide my own covering for my sins, as they did with fig leaves. Now I realize, that in doing this, I have never really known true fellowship and forgiveness. I believe you are the only One Who can save me with an eternal salvation when I call upon You. I believe You will restore me to fellowship with Your-self as my Creator-Father-Friend, and as the One Who promises He will never forsake me or leave me to myself again.  Thank You, Jesus, for coming to this earth and showing me how to be restored to our Father. Thank You, Jesus, for paying the penalty that was required to cover my sins, Your own precious Blood, spilled from the cross. Thank You, Holy Spirit for coming into my heart now, in answer to Jesus’ prayer to teach me how to not take it (life/negatives/ accusations/self-talk for which you have already been forgiven) personally anymore. Amen."
Gruver, Henry - ww.pdxprays.com/uploads/3/9/1/6/39160377/prayer_walking_handbook_-_henry_gruver.pdf (edited) Remitting Sins - "After His resurrection, Jesus told His disciples, Whosesoever sins ye remit, they are remitted unto them; and whosesoever sins ye retain, they are retained. (John 20:23) - What does it mean to remit sins?  What's the
purpose of it?  Look at a closely related issue: What does it mean 'to redeem the land', to claim the land back for the Lord and bring it back to Him? By that I mean to be really possessing (or repossessing) the land, not just co-existing in it with the forces of evil...When you remit, you: relax, absolve, release, pardon, discontinue, acquit, surrender, leave off, moderate, mitigate, alleviate, desist, as in 'cease and desist.'  That should give you an inkling of the kind of power there is in remitting someone’s sins.  Here is another synonym that is really powerful: soften.  Have you ever met a hard callused person?   You can begin to soften those calluses by remitting that one’s sins. Here are some more synonyms: relent, excuse,
overlook, exempt, forward, dispatch, transmit, convey, transfer, consign, and deliver.  Think about those words in relation to sin. Clearly, there is power there.  On the other hand, if you don’t remit (LOOSE) someone’s sins, what are you doing? Consider these antonyms for the word remit: hold, withhold, keep, retain, reserve, tie up, persist, continue, exact, control, command, sway, dominate, avenge, take revenge, get the upper hand, impose a duty on, bind, enjoin, render obligatory, make responsible, repress, suppress, restrain, restrict, prohibit. Antonyms and synonyms will help you to understand
whether or not you are choosing the right mountain.  Are you getting the picture of those 2 mountains in front of you, the Synonym Mountain of Blessing, and the Antonym Mountain of Cursing. Which mountain have you been climbing?  Which act have you been performing? Have you been releasing others? Have you been sending them forward? Have you been dispatching and transmitting and conveying and transferring and consigning and delivering them? Then you have been remitting sins.  If you have been making others responsible, placing them under obligation, repressing, restricting, restraining and prohibiting them, you have not been remitting their sins. You have been retaining them! At the risk of repeating myself, I will say it again. You can be either a blessing or a curse. Choose the blessing and live.  Looking at the Greek Strong’s Dictionary for the word translated as 'remit' in the New Testament, we find that it means 'to cry, forgive, lay aside, or, forsake.'  It comes from a root word meaning 'off, as in, 'Get it off from me.  Shake it loose.'  According to Strong’s Concordance, this root word usually denotes separation and departure.
REDEEMING THE LAND - When we speak of redeeming the land, what are we talking about? We are talking about reclaiming it for God. We know there is a lot of territory in this world that needs 'separation and departure' from sin and the curse. There are alot of things that need to be removed from our land, as well as many iniquitous yokes from the generations which came before us that need to be separated out from the land.  Does that sound strange to you? Consider Leviticus 18:25  The land is defiled. Therefore I do visit the iniquity thereof upon it, and the land itself vomiteth out her inhabitants...
When you are interceding in a situation like that (where a Christian is bound to a person having occult covenants).  You wonder what you can do; continue to remit the person’s sins (like Job and rabbis/priests). Even if it seems hopeless, remit, remit, remit.  Never despair of remitting.  Paul expresses this kind of intercession perfectly in II Corinthians 2:10-11. He is talking to the Corinthian church and expounding on the need for agreement in intercession and forgiveness.  He said, 'To whom ye forgive any thing, I forgive also. For if I forgave any thing—to whom I forgave it—for your sakes forgave I it in the person of Christ; lest Satan should get an advantage of us; for we are not ignorant of his devices.'
WALKING AND REMITTING— AMBASSADORS FOR CHRIST - Why remit a person’s sins? Matthew 26:28 - For this is My blood of the New Testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.  This teaching grew out of a cry of my heart, 'Oh, God, Your Word says to love your enemies, bless them that curse you, and do good to them that despite fully use you. But, Lord, I don’t know how. I have told them, ‘I love you.’ I have said, ‘I forgive you, however, Lord, I still didn’t like them.
It didn’t release me.  It didn’t set me free. I can’t really live it from my heart. Something is wrong, Lord. I’m not reaching these people. They just laugh at me, or spit in my face, or stomp on my feet, push me back, and say, ‘Get out of my face, you religious freak.’  “Lord, I’m not reaching them. Their hearts are not being pricked. I’m not getting right down to where they live. They are not feeling my sincerity. Something has to penetrate the hard shell of these individuals, or it is useless for me to be out here, trying to be a witness.  I want to see results.’  [The Lord directed Henry to always act out of a pure heart.  The Lord gave Henry assignments based on His song and peace.  One such assignment was as follows:]

As I mentioned, the Lord then said, 'I want you to get up on that (mountain) altar. I want you to say a few words for Me.'  'I’m always ready to do that, because I am an ambassador for Christ. Isn’t that what the scriptures say? Now then we are ambassadors for Christ: (II Corinthians 5:20). That means we are His representatives, His mouthpieces, and we are to deliver the message exactly as our Commander-in-chief gives it to us. We represent Him, and we speak by His authority.  As the wind was howling through the trees, I stood on that big stone altar and cried out, turning and facing the north, south, east, and west. The declaration took form as I opened my mouth, and let it be known that from this time forth things would be different. Anyone entering this (occult dedicated) area intending to commit any (evil) act, deed or gesture to Lucifer, the god of this world, would come face to face with the power of the shed blood of Jesus Christ and the power of Holy Spirit.  Their choices would be to either fall on their faces and repent for their hearts of wickedness, or, flee (in fear) from this place."

Kerr, Kat www.revealingheaven.com encourages us to, by an act of our will, LOOSE the offense (wound/trauma) from our SOUL as well as soul deposits or soul layers (such as from prior lovers). https://youtu.be/xQET69RN4CI

As an emotionally troubled youth, Erwin spent a few years hospitalized with depression, anger, rage, condemnation, bitterness, OCD, blaming others, until he had an encounter with the Lord and began to practice forgiveness, to NOT dwell on the past but on the future.  Un-forgiveness kept him a prisoner, rather than those he did resent/hate and (accidently or deliberately) hurt by. 
[Forgiveness is not a get out of jail free key or bail for others, but instead for us.  Our thoughts and emotions are what imprison (self-sabotage) us.  Just what our spiritual enemy wants.  When satan reminds/temps us with condemnation of self or others, immediately dismiss/veto.  Then place/plead the Blood of Jesus over the issue.  In Jesus’ name, spiritually LOOSE all  pain/hurt (both emotional and physical) from self/soul. 
In Jesus’ name, spiritually BIND to one’s soul the Soul (emotions/mind/thoughts/will-power) of God: hourly/daily/weekly/monthly/yearly.]

Sumrall, Lester - https://issacharpropheticcity.files.wordpress.com/2015/01/the-militant-church-sumrall.pdf -
"Get unforgiveness out of your system, or it will clog your arteries of compassion. Unforgiveness will hinder militant love, and circumvent victory.  I have met people whose parents are dead, yet they still hate their parents. That is like hating a tree after the fruit is gone. Hate is wrong to begin with. Whether the person you are holding something against is living or dead, you have to get hate out of you.  Forgiveness is for your benefit. Most of the time, holding unforgiveness against someone does not hurt that person. However, it affects your mental, emotional, physical, & spiritual health.  Loose those people (from your judgment) & let them go.  Forgiveness involves forgetting. Forgive, forget, & get on with living for Jesus."

Inability to Forgive God &/or Others

COMMENTARY: We need to forgive to cure both self and others. 
If we do NOT forgive, then we often relive, continually captive to the past and infecting both the present and future.

Smith, Michael W - Enforce the Enemy's Defeat! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HqyLZd2dOVA - http://HardcoreChristianity.com - HouseOfHealingAZ -

Wommack, Andrew - https://www.awmi.net/video/this-weeks-tv/#/2018/week49/thursday - 12/6/2018 -
Andrew believes that a conscience allows us to repent for sins not confessed, especially after being born-again.
Un-repented sins give Satan legal grounds to afflict us.  Sins NOT repented of between salvation and death are covered by the ONE time sacrifice of Christ, past/present/future.  Yes, we can go to heaven, BUT certain areas of our lives will NOT be shielded from Demonic attack, until those sins are remitted/repented of.

Conviction is from the Holy Spirit.
After you have repented to God
reject self-condemnation which is from the enemy.

SCRIPTURE

Old Testament scripture

Genesis 4:6-7 Amplified - The Lord said to Cain, "Why are you angry and why do you look sad and dejected? 
If you do well, will you not be accepted?  If you do not do well, sin crouches at your door.  It's desire is for you. 
You must master it
(anger, bitterness, depression, jealousy, hate, murder, revenge)."
Genesis 6:6-8 KJVer -
The Lord repented (changed His mind/regretted/was sorry) that He had made man on the earth;
it grieved Him at His heart.  The Lord said, "I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth;
both man, beast, creeping things, and the fowl of the air, for it repents Me that I have made them."
But (however/only) Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord.
Genesis 8:21 KJVer -
The Lord said in His heart, "I will not again curse the ground any more for man's sake, for the imagination of man's heart is evil from his youth.  Neither will I again smite anymore everything living, as I have done.  While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night shall not cease."
Genesis 9:11 KJVer - "
I  will establish My covenant with you.  Neither shall all flesh be cut off any more by the waters of a flood.  Neither shall there anymore be a flood to destroy the earth."  God said, "This is the token of the covenant with I make between Me and you and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual generations.  I do set My  (rain)bow in the   cloud.  It shall be a token of a covenant between Me and earth." (Spiritual insight: repentance is reversing direction/choices.  Even the Lord will do this.  He will cancel/void/bind curses and release/loose blessings.)
Genesis 50:20
  You thought evil against me, but God meant it to (for) good.

Exodus 20:1 - God spoke all these words, saying
Exodus 20:5 - I, the Lord your God, AM a jealous God, punishing (removing His protection from) the children for the sin of the fathers to the 3rd and 4th generation of those who hate me,
Exodus 20:6 -
but showing love to a 1,000 generations of those who love Me & keep My commandments.  (Spiritual insight: disease/curse is generational due to sin.)   

Leviticus 16:6-10 NIV    Aaron (the priest) is to offer the bull for his own sin offering to make atonement for himself and his household.  Then he is to take 2 goats and present them before the Lord at the entrance to the Tent of Meeting.  He is to cast lots for the 2 goats and present them before the Lord at the entrance to the Tent of Meeting. 
He is to cast lots for the 2 goats - one lot for the Lord and the other for the scapegoat.  Aaron shall bring the got whose lot falls to the Lord and sacrifice it for a sin offering.  The goat chosen by lot as the scapegoat shall be presented alive before the Lord to be used for making atonement by sending it into the desert as a scapegoat. 
Leviticus 16:15-16 NIV - He shall then slaughter the (2nd) goat for the sin offering for the people (congregation) and take its blood behind the curtain and do with it as he did with the bull's blood.  He shall sprinkle it on the atonement cover and in front of it.  In this way, he will make atonement for the Most Holy Place because of the uncleanness and rebellion of the Israelites, whatever their sins have been.
Leviticus 16:20-22 NIV    When Aaron has finished making atonement for the Most Holy Place, the Tent of Meeting & the altar, he shall bring forward the live goat.  He is to lay both hands on the head of the live goat & confess over it all the wickedness and rebellion of the Israelites, all their sins, and put them on the goat's head.  He shall send the goat away into the desert  in the care of a man appointed for the task. The goat will carry on itself all their sins to a solitary place.  The man shall release it in the desert. (Spiritual insight: This ritual was a forerunner of what Christ did for us on the cross.)
Leviticus 16:30 - For through this day (of Yom Kippur) He will (annually) atone for you,
to cleanse you.  From all your sins before Hashem (God) you will be cleansed.
Leviticus 26:39-40 TNAB - 39Those of you who survive in the lands of their enemies will waste away for their own and their fathers' guilt.  40Thus they will have to confess that they and their (fore) fathers were guilty of having rebelled (sinned/committed iniquity) against Me and of having defied Me.

Numbers 21:7 TNAB - 7The people came to Moses and said, "We have sinned
in complaining against the Lord and (against) you."  So Moses prayed for the people.
[Annual Jewish confession during Yom Kippur contains doctrine that if one utters his confession sincerely,
the avenging angel is not permitted to harm him, per Scherman, Rabbi Nosson Viduy 
(confession or teshuvah/repentance) www.artscroll.com ]

Deuteronomy 5:9 KJV - I the Lord your God am a jealous God punishing the children
for the sin of the fathers to the 3rd and 4th generation of those who hate Me,
but showing love to a 1,000 generations of those who love Me and keep My commandments
.
Deuteronomy 32:35 KJV    "To Me (the Lord) belongs vengeance and recompense."

Joshua 5:9 NKJV - This day I (God) have rolled away the reproach of (the sins of) Egypt from you.

Nehemiah 9:1-2 KJV - The children of Israel were assembled with fasting, with sack clothes & earth upon them. 
The seed of Israel separated themselves from all strangers, stood & confessed their (own) sins & the iniquities of their fathers.   (Spiritual insight: curses can be stopped & reversed through repentance.)
Nehemiah 9:17b NIV - You are a forgiving God, gracious & compassionate, slow to answer and abounding in love.  Therefore you did not desert them.

Job 1:4-5a TNAB  - 4.His sons used to take turns giving feasts, sending invitations to their 3 sisters to eat & drink with them.  5.When each feast had run its course, Job would send for them and sanctify them.
Job 1:5b NIT - 5.Early in the morning he would sacrifice a burnt offering for each of them (his children)thinking, "Perhaps my children have sinned and cursed God in their hearts."  This was Job's regular custom. (See 1st John 5:16-17)
Job 42:5-6 TNAB -
5.I (Job) had heard of You by word of mouth, but now my eye has seen You. 
6.Thefore, I disown what I have said, and repent in dust and ashes.
Job 42:7-8 NKJV - The Lord said to Eliphaz the Temanite, "My wrath is aroused against you and your 2 friends, for you have not spoken of Me what is right, as My servant Job has.  Now therefore, take for yourselves 7 bulls and 7 rams, go to My servant Job, and offer up for yourselves a burnt offering.  My servant Job shall pray for you (the offender),
for I will accept him
(Job), lest I deal with you (3) according to your folly."   

Psalm 19:12-13 NIV - (God), "Forgive my hidden faults  Also, keep your servant (me/David) from willful sins;
may they not rule over me.  Then I will be blameless, innocent of great transgressions."
Psalm 32:1-2 KJV
- Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered. 
Blessed is the man to whom the Lord imputes not iniquity and in whose spirit there is no guile (deceit).
Psalm 32:5-6a NIV  5.I acknowledged my sin to You and did not cover up my iniquity. 
I said, "I will confess my transgressions to the Lord."  You forgave the guilt of My sin. 
6a.Let everyone who is godly pray to You while You may be found.
Psalm 35:13 NKJV - As for me, when they (the offenders) were sick, my clothing was sackcloth.  I humbled myself with fasting.  My prayer would return to my own heart. I paced about as though he were my friend or brother. 
I bowed down heavily, as one who mourns for his mother.
Psalm 125:14 KJV  - The Lord will judge His people.
Psalm 133:1 KJVer - Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!

Proverbs 16:7 NIV - When a man's ways are pleasing to the Lord, He makes even his enemies live at peace with him.

Isaiah 43:25 NIV - "I, even I, am He Who blots out your transgressions, for My own sake & remembers your sins no more."
Isaiah 44:22 A Harkavy 
"I, have blotted out, as a thick cloud, thy transgressions & as a cloud, thy sins: return to Me; for I have redeemed thee."
Isaiah 58:9 NIV
   "You will call & the Lord will answer.  You will cry for help & He will say, 'Here am I,' 
If you do away with the yoke of oppression, with the pointing finger and malicious talk.'" 
(Spiritual insight: We need to relinquish to God the gossip/tattling/exposing/condemnation.  It is the Holy Spirit's job to convict of sin and Satan's joy to condemn/harass/lie/finger point.  Let us not align ourselves with evil.)
Isaiah 65:16-17 NASV    16The former troubles are forgotten...they are hid from My sight
17Behold, I create new heavens and a new earth...the former things shall not be remembered (by Me) or come to (My) mind
18Be glad and rejoice forever.  (Scriptural insight: Oh tormented mind, in the name of Jesus, reject those thoughts that do not line up with God's Words in scripture.)

Ezekiel 25:15 KJV - The Philistines have dealt by revenge and have taken vengeance with a despiteful heart to destroy it for the old hatred. (An illustration of what happens due to unforgiveness.)
Ezekiel 33:16 NIV - None of the sins he has committed will be remembered against him.
Ezekiel 35:5 KJV - Thou has had a perpetual hatred and shed the blood of the children of Israel by the force of the sword in the time of their calamity.

Daniel 9:20 NIV    While I was speaking and praying, confessing my sin and the sin of my people Israel and making my request to the Lord my God for His holy hill, while I was still in prayer, Gabriel, the (angelic) man I had seen in the earlier vision, came to me in swift flight about the time of the  evening sacrifice. 
(Spiritual insight: Here we have a spiritual example of confessing both personal/family and national sin/atrocities.)

Jonah 3:10 KJV - God saw their (citizens and king of the city of Nineveh) works, that they turned from their evil way (repented); God repented of the evil (harm/punishment) that He had said He would do to them.  He did not do it.
Jonah 4:1-4 NIV - Jonah was greatly displeased and became angry.  He prayed to the Lord, O Lord, is this not what I said when I was still at home?  That is why I was so quick to flee to Tarshish.  I knew that You are a gracious & compassionate God, slow to anger & abounding in love, a God Who  relents from sending calamity. 
3Now, O Lord, take away my life;  for it is better for me to die than to live." 
4The Lord replied, "Have you any right to be angry?" 
(Spiritual insight: Here we see self pity, anger of man against the mercy and forgiveness of God.  We even see a spirit of suicide.)
Jonah 3:6, 9-10 TNAB
- When the news reach the king of Nineveh, he rose from his throne, laid aside his roe, covered himself with sackcloth & sat in ashes..."Who knows, God may relent, forgive, and withhold His blazing wrath, so that we shall not perish."  When God saw by their actions how they turned from their evil way, He repented of the evil that He had threatened to do them.  He did not carry it out. (Spiritual insight: repentance needs to be evidenced by one's changing his behavior from evil/wrong/harmful/hurtful to good/correct/blessing.)

Micah 7:19 NIV - You (God) will cast all their sins into the depths of the sea.

http://www.ccel.org/c/charles/otpseudepig/enoch/ENOCH_1.HTM -
(Regarding those angelic Watchers who mated with humans and produced earthly giants.)
Enoch 13  1 Enoch went and said: 'Azazel, thou shalt have no peace: a severe sentence has gone forth
2 against thee to put thee in bonds: Thou shalt not have toleration nor request granted to thee, because of the unrighteousness which thou hast taught, and because of all the works of godlessness,
3 unrighteousness and sin which thou hast shown to men.' Then I went and spoke to them all
4 together.  They were all afraid.  Fear and trembling seized them.
They besought me to draw up a petition for them that they might find forgiveness, and to read their petition in the presence
5 of the Lord of heaven. For from thenceforward they could not speak (with Him) nor lift up their
6 eyes to heaven for shame of their sins for which they had been condemned.
Then I wrote out their petition, and the prayer in regard to their spirits and their deeds individually & in regard to their
7 requests that they should have forgiveness & length. 
I went off and sat down at the waters and land of Dan, to the south west of Hermon: I read their petition till I fell
8 asleep. Behold a dream and visions fell down upon me.  I saw visions of chastisement. 
A voice came bidding (me) to tell it to the sons of heaven, and reprimand them.
9 When I awaked, I came unto them; they were all sitting gathered together, weeping in
10 'Abelsjail, which is between Lebanon and Seneser, with their faces covered. 
I recounted before them all the visions which I had seen in sleep.
I began to speak the words of righteousness, and to reprimand the heavenly Watchers.
Enoch 14  1 The book of the words of righteousness, and of the reprimand of the eternal Watchers in accordance
2 with the command of the Holy Great One in that vision.
I saw in my sleep what I will now say with a tongue of flesh and with the breath of my mouth: which the Great One has given to men to
3 converse therewith and understand with the heart. As He has created and given to man the power of understanding the word of wisdom, so hath He created me also and given me the power of reprimanding
4 the Watchers, the children of heaven. I wrote out your petition.  In my vision it appeared that your petition will not be granted unto you throughout all the days of eternity.  Judgment 5 has been finally passed upon you: yea (your petition) will NOT be granted. Henceforth you shall not ascend into heaven unto all eternity.  In bonds of the earth the decree
6 has gone forth to bind you for all the days of the world. And (that) previously you shall have seen the destruction of your beloved sons
and ye shall have no pleasure in them, but they shall fall before
7 you by the sword. Your petition on their behalf shall not be granted, nor yet on your own: even though you weep and pray and speak all the words contained in the writing which I have 8 written.
 
Jubilees 43:19 (per Genesis 50:20) The Lord sent me (Joseph your brother who you betrayed, abandoned, sold and lied about) to set things in order that many people might live.

New Testament Scripture

Matthew 5:7 KJVer    Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy.
Matthew 5:22-25 KJV   
I (Jesus) say to you, "Whoever is angry with his brother (relative or comrade) without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment.  Whoever (in contempt) shall say to his brother, 'Raca (empty, senseless one, stupid or idiot),' shall be in danger of the (Sanhedrin) council.  Whoever shall say, 'You fool,' shall be in danger of hell fire. Therefore, if you bring your gift to the altar and there remember that your brother has anything against you; leave your gift there before the altar and go your way.  First be reconciled to your brother.  Then come and offer your gift.  Agree with your adversary quickly, while you are on the way (to court) with him, lest at any time the adversary deliver you to the judge, the judge deliver you to the officer, and you be cast into prison." 
(Spiritual insight = Our brother may have something against us FALSELY.  Jesus forgave those who crucified Him.  They were in error.  This spiritual example must be applied daily for us to stay in spiritual, mental and physical health.  2nd, we may be or become guilty if we are a victim, for often the spirit of victimization attracts the spirit of victimizer.  This may happen due to inherited sin.  A molested child may become a molester, if the evil (spirit) is not recognized, refused, repented of on behalf of present and past generations, bound and cast under the feet of Jesus.  This is where communion serves us well.  Job repented daily on behalf of his children.  This is a form of intercession, standing in the gap, through the power of Jesus Christ.)
Matthew 5:38-44 NIV - You have heard that it was said, "Eye for eye and tooth for tooth," but I (Jesus) tell you, "Do not resist an evil person.  If someone strikes you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also.  If someone wants to sue you and take your tunic, let him have your cloak as well.  If someone forces your to go 1 mile, go with him 2 miles.  Give to the one who asks you.  Do not turn away from the one who wants to borrow from you. You have heard that it was said, "Love your neighbor and hate your enemy," but I tell you, "Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you,
that you may be sons of your Father in heaven
."
Matthew 6:12 KJV    Forgive us
our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
Matthew 6:14-15 KJVer    If you forgive
men their trespasses, your heavenly Father
will also forgive you.  If you forgive not
men their trespass, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses
.
Matthew 7:1-5 KJVer -
1Judge not that you be not judged.  2With the judgment you judge, you shall be judged.  With what measure you mete, it shall be measured to you again.  3Why behold the mote in your brother's eye, but consider not the beam in your own eye?  4How will you say to your brother, "Let me pull the mote out of your eye, (when) a beam is in your own eye?" 5Hypocrite, 1st cast the beam out of your own eye.  Then you shall see clearly to cast the mote out of your brother's eye.
Matthew 9:2,5-6 TNAB -
2When Jesus saw their faith, He said to the paralytic, "Courage, child, your sins are forgiven."...5"Which is easier to say, 'Your sins are forgiven,' or to say, 'Rise up and walk'?  6That you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins" - He then said to the paralytic, "Rise.  Pick up your stretcher and go home."
Matthew 12:43-45 NIV
 - (Jesus said,) "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.'  When it arrives, it finds the house unoccupied, swept clean and put in order.  Then it goes and takes with it 7 other spirits more wicked than itself, and they go in and live here.  The final condition of that man is worse than the first." 
Matthew 15:22 TPNT  - You must have mercy on me right now, Lord." (TPNT footnote says that, "Asking for mercy was an idiom for asking for forgiveness.  The people understood that sickness was caused by sin.")
Matthew 18:15-17 NIV - (Jesus said,) "If your brother sins against you, go and show him his fault, just between the 2 of you.  If he listens to you, you have won your brother over.  If he will not listen, take 1 or 2 others along, so that every matter may be established by the testimony of 2 or 3 witnesses.  If he refuses to listen to them, tell it to the church (spiritual congregation).  If he refuses to listen even to the church, treat him as you would a pagan or a tax collector."
Matthew 18:18-20 NIV - "I (Jesus) tell you the truth, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven. 
Whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.  I tell you, that if 2 of you on earth agree about anything you ask for, it will be done for you by My father in heaven, for where 2 or 3 come together in My name, there am I with them
"
(Spiritual Discussion: Henry Wright contends this applies to loosing love and forgiveness. 
In this context it can also mean to bind the enemy of unforgiveness and place under the feet of Jesus.)
Matthew 18:21-35 NIV    Peter came to Jesus and asked, "Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother (relative) when he sins against me?  Up to 7 times?"  Jesus answered, "I tell you, not 7 times, but 77 times.  The kingdom of heaven (God) is like a king who wanted to settle accounts with his servants (staff).  As he began the settlement, a man who owed him 10,000 talents was brought to him.  Since he was not able to pay, the master ordered that he, his wife, his children, and all that he had be sold to repay the debt.  The servant fell on his knees before him.  'Be patient with me,' he begged 'and I
will pay back everything.'  The servant's master took pity on him, canceled the debt and let him go.  But when that servant went out, he found one of his fellow servants who owed him a 100 denarii.  He grabbed him and began to choke him.  'Pay back what you owe me!',  he demanded.  His fellow servant fell to his knees and begged him, 'Be patient with me and I will pay you back.'  He refused.  Instead, he went off and had the man thrown into prison until he could pay the debt.  When the other servants saw what had happened, they were greatly distressed, went, and told their master everything that had happened. Then the master called the servant in.  'You wicked servant,' he said.  'I cancelled all that debt of yours because you begged me to.  Shouldn't you have had mercy on your fellow servant just as I had on you?'  In anger his master turned him over to the to the jailers to be tortured
(tormented), until he should pay back all he owed.  This is how My heavenly Father (God) will treat each of you unless your forgive your brother from your heart."

Matthew 22:39 KJV - Love your neighbor as yourself.

Mark 2:5- NIV - When Jesus saw their faith, He said to the paralytic, "Son, your sins are forgiven."  Now some teachers of the law were sitting there, thinking to themselves, "Why does this fellow talk like that?  He's blaspheming!  Who can forgive sins but God alone?"  Immediately Jesus knew in His spirit that this was what they were thinking in their hearts, and He said to them, "Why are you thinking these things?  Which is easier: to say to the paralytic, 'Your sins are forgiven,' or to say, 'Get up, take your mat and walk?'  But (I have said this) that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins..."
Mark 3:29-30 NIV - "I tell you the truth, all the sins and blasphemies of men will be forgiven, but whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will never be forgiven.  He is guilty of an eternal sin."  He (Jesus) said this because they were saying, "He has an evil spirit."  
Mark 4:12 TPNT - "At any time they would turn back, repent, and it would be forgiven them."

 - He was saying to them, "Beware of what you hear.  In the measure with which you are measuring, it will be measured to you and it will be added to you." 
Mark 11:24-25 KJV -
When you stand praying, forgive, if you have ought (anything) against any, that your Father, Who is heaven, may forgive you your trespasses.

Luke 6:27-38 KJV - 27"I say to you who hear, 'Love your enemies.  Do good to them who hate you.  28Bless them that curse you.  Pray for them who despitefully use you. 29To him who smites you on the one cheek, offer also the other.  He who takes away your cloak, forbid not to take your coat also.  30Give to every man who asks of you, and of him who takes away your goods, ask him not again.  31As you would that men should do to you, do also to them likewise.  32If you love them who love you, what thanks do you have, for sinners also love those who love them.  33If you do good to those who do good to you, what thanks do you have, for sinners also do the same.  34If you lend to those whom you hope to receive, what thanks have you, for sinners also lend to sinners, to receive as much again?  35Lend to your enemies. Do good and lend, hoping for nothing.  Your reward shall be great.  You shall be the children of the Highest.  36He is kind to the unthankful to the evil; therefore, be merciful as your Father is merciful.  37Judge not and you shall not be judged.  Condemn not and you shall not be condemned.  Forgive and you shall be forgiven.  38Give and it shall be given to you.  Men shall give into your bosom good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over.  With the same measure that you mete out, it shall be measured to you again (in return).'"  (spiritual insight: "Double for your trouble!" or "an eye for an eye; a tooth for a tooth", not as a punishment, but as a reward/restoration from God)

John 5:30 NIV - "I (Jesus) judge only as I hear (God the Father), and My judgment is just, for I seek not to please Myself, but Him Who sent Me."  (Spiritual insight: Jesus/God sees the heart.  Likewise, we are NOT to judge or to condemn.  That is God's job.  A critical spirit is an evil spirit, a demon!)
John 8:15 NIV
 - "You judge by human standards.  I (Jesus) pass judgment on no one."  (Spiritual insight:
It is our sins, our trespasses against the law in scripture, + Satan that condemn us.  The 1st brings us to repentance. 
The 2nd brings false condemnation, especially to those who have repented.)
John 20:22-23
 - Jesus said..."Receive the Holy Spirit. If you forgive (pardon) anyone his sins, they are forgiven; if you do not forgive them, they are not forgiven."  (Let us be the generation that stops the family curses.  Let us be the generation that begins the family blessings.  Let us be God's first miracle of healing of mental illness/depression/cancer/you-name-it in our generation.  Let us operate as high priests with the rubbed on anointing oil of the Holy Spirit, as imparted to Jesus' disciples in the upper room.)

Acts 2:36-39 TPNT - 36Continually know that God also made Him Lord and Messiah, this Jesus Whom you crucified.  37When they heard this they were pierced in their hearts.  They said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, "What must we do, men, brothers?"  38Peter said to them, "You must immediately repent, and each of you must immediately be baptized in the name of Jesus Messiah, for forgiveness of you sins, and you will take the gift of the Holy Spirit.  39For the promise is for you and for your children, and for all those in far away places, whomever the Lord our God will call to Himself."

While they were stoning him (to death), Stephen prayed,  "Lord (God), do NOT charge them with this sin."

Acts 26:15-8 KJVer - 15Who are You, Lord?  He said, "I am Jesus Whom you persecute.  16 Rise and stand upon your feet, for I have appeared to you for this purpose... 17delivering you (Saul who God renamed Paul) from the people...
18to open their eyes and to turn them from darkness to light and from the power of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and inheritance among them who are sanctified by faith in Me."   

Romans 2:1-3,5-6 NIV    1At whatever point you judge the other, you are condemning yourself, because (if) you who pass judgment do the same things.

3When you, a mere man, pass judgment on them
and yet do the same things, do you think you will escape God's judgment? 
5You are storing up wrath against yourself for the day of God's wrath,
when His righteous judgment will be revealed.

(See Psalm 62:12 + Proverbs 24:12)

8Blessed is the man whose sin Adonai will not reckon (remember/use/apply) against his (evil) account.
Romans 5:11 NIV    We also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by Whom we now have received atonement (reconciliation/forgiveness).
Romans 8:1 NIV - Therefore, there is now NO condemnation to them who are in Christ.

2nd Corinthians 2:10-11 NIV  - If you forgive anyone, I (Paul) also forgive him.  What I have forgiven (if there was anything to forgive) I have forgiven in the sight of Christ for your sake, in order that Satan might not outwit us; for we are not unaware of his schemes.
2nd Corinthians 5:19 - God was reconciling the world to Himself in Christ, not counting men's sins against them. (Spiritual reminder: Satan, not God, is the condemner/accuser/ shamer.)

But watch yourself, or you also may be tempted.

Forgive
as the Lord forgave you.

Hebrews 9:22 NIV  - The law requires that nearly everything be cleansed with blood.

Hebrews 10:17 NIV
   Their sins and iniquities I will remember NO more.
Hebrews 10:30-31 KJV - "Vengeance belongs to Me.  I will recompense, says the Lord"...
The Lord shall judge His people.  It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.
Hebrews 12:14-15 NIV/Deuteronomy 29:18   Make every effort to live in peace with all men and to be holy.  See to it that no one misses the grace of God and that no bitter root (bitterness) grows up to cause trouble and defile many.  (Spiritual insight: Defiled in the Greek is miaino meaning to be stained with demonic processes.  Thus we give demons a legal right to aggravate when we do not forgive and instead allow bitterness to grow. Bromiley's Theological Dictionary of the New Testament)

James 2:13 NIV    Mercy triumphs over judgment.
James 5:9 NIV
    Don't grumble against each other, brothers, or you will be judged.  The Judge is standing at the door.

Let your "Yes" be yes and your "No" (be) no, or you will be condemned.
James 5:14-16
KJV    14Is anyone among you sick?  Let him call for the elders of the church. 
Let them pray over him, anointing him with oil, in the name of the Lord. 
15The prayer of faith shall save the sick.  The Lord shall raise him up.  If he has committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.  16Confess your faults to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. (Spiritual Insight: Confession is best/more safely/wisely done with those in ministry.  Confession to a mate or doctor may be advisable, but if they have not received the baptism of the Holy Spirit or do not have needed God's gifts of discernment/knowledge/deliverance/healing/etc, they may be able to empathize/pray/comfort but not fix the problem.)

1st Peter 3:8 KJV - Be all of one mind, having compassion for one another.  Love as brethren.  Be pitiful (compassionate).  Be courteous.

1st John 1:8-9 NIV -
If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves.  The truth is not in us.  If we confess our sins, He is faithful, just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.  If we claim we have not sinned, we make Him out to be a liar. [Spiritual insight = Sin is not just something we do, but also something we have (disease/evil spirit/unforgiveness) or something we fail to do (love/forgive)  This includes not only any issues we now have, but also issues we had growing up.]
1st John 3:10 NIV -
This is how we know who the children of God are and who the children of the devil are. 
Anyone who does not who what is right is not a child of God, nor is anyone who does not love his brother.
1st John 3:14-15 NAB
 - Whoever does not love remains in (spiritual) death. Everyone who hates his brother is a murderer.  You know that no murderer has eternal life remaining in him.  (Spiritual insight: Frank Hammond and may other deliverance ministers have actually encountered evil spirits of adultery, fornication, witchcraft, hatred, wrath, strife, envying, murder, drunkenness, for beginners.)
1st John 4:20-21 NIV   
20If anyone says, "I love God," yet hates his brother, he is a liar;
for anyone who does not love his brother, whom he has seen, cannot love God, Whom he has not seen. 
21He has given us this command, "Whoever loves God must also love his brother."
1st John 5:16-17 TPNT - 16If someone would see his brother committing a sin not to death, if he will ask, then He will give life to him, to those who do not sin to death.  There is a sin to death; I am not saying that he should ask concerning that. 
17Every unrighteousness is sin, but there is sin not to death... Footnote:
Jesus identifies food as one example of a sin not unto death, Matthew 15:11, Mark 7:15 
[Spiritual insight: See Job 1:5b  The sin that is most often considered to be the sin unto eternal spiritual death is - one's refusal to believe on Jesus Christ as Messiah.  The Catholic church separates sin into venial (non deadly) & mortal (deadly) sins; however all other churches do not agree with these, one reason being that (according to scripture) all sin separates us from God.  Christ was temporarily separated from God when He took on/became sin on the cross, in order to exterminate the problems which Adam, Eve and Satan caused in the Garden of Eden.  Rather than believing God, Adam and Eve believed the lies of Satan.  Jesus restored our potential to now have the same relationship with God as Adam and Eve had.]

Oh, how powerful this is. Like Moses, you stand between the righteous judgments of God and this corrupt generation. Yet I shall have pity and show mercy, time and time again. So, continue your prayers. There are devices of wickedness and evil that you in your own imaginations would never think of.  Terrible things, inflicting great pain and death. But because of your repentance and prayer I will intercept and destroy many of them, giving those left behind another chance to repent...
In all things, My People, pray. Repent for the nations, listen for My instructions and obey. Pray much that the horrors planned against the innocent will fail. Pray for the destruction of the infrastructure that has arranged all these events to decimate mankind from the Earth. These prayers I will answer. Yes, pray for your enemies and the unsaved.
Know that with the death of millions, Hell will expand and unprecedented volcanic activity will erupt in places never imagined. This will be part of the destruction of the underground cities. Even as Sodom and Gomorrah were reduced to sulfur, so shall these chambers be filled with deadly gasses and magma. No one could foresee the effect the expansion of Hell has on what they called ‘secure’ bunkers and cities.  Yes, pray, repent and pray more, especially for the innocent and last minute conversions. Pray even that your enemies repent in their last moments, for those who call upon Me will be saved.  I bless you now with courage, intercession and a heart after My own, even as Moses had. Lift up your hearts to Me and call down mercy on the Earth

The Lord said, "I am sorry for the cruelty of those who hate you without reason, My love. My heart aches with yours and indeed it is a good offering for their sanctification.

Absolution

http://www.kingjamesbibleonline.org/John-20-23/ -
Whose soever sins ye remit, they are remitted unto them.  Whose soever sines ye retain, they are retained.

Sandford, John L & Paula - Growing Pains - www.elijahhouse.org - chapter 8 Lasting Healing from Sexual Abuse -
section Pronounce absolution (assurance of forgiveness) to the one who was abused.  Having forgiven the victimizer, the victim now "may still retain feelings of guilt until that...has been addressed in prayer.  So if the abused cannot let go of false guilt, even if he knows (intellectually, but not emotionally or experimentally) he is guilty, we (may need to) pray, 'On the basis of the Word of God, you are forgiven...I (also) forgive you in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ" (for feeding unforgiveness that will backfire on my physical, emotional and spiritual life), for not forgiving God, and for not forgiving myself.)

Leviticus 16:21 - "Aharon is to lay both his hands on the head of the live goat and confess over it all the transgressions, crimes and sins of the people of Isra’el; he is to put them (all transgressions, crimes & sins) on the head of the goat and then send it away into the desert with a man appointed for the purpose."

Ruth 4:5-10 http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Ruth%204:5-10&version=CJB 7 In the past, this is what was done in Isra’el to validate all transactions involving redemption and exchange: a man took off his shoe and gave it to the other party; this was the form of attestation in Isra’el.

Rejection of Jesus Christ as One's Own Personal Messiah

Wilte, Ellen (7 day Adventist) - http://www.ellenwhitedefend.com/SOP-Library/Orig&Early/1SG.pdf - "Satan did not then exult as he had done. He had hoped that he could break up the (*known) plan of salvation; but it was laid too deep. And now by Jesus' death, he knew that he must finally die, and his kingdom be taken away and given to Jesus. He held a council with his angels. He had prevailed nothing against the Son of God, and now they must increase their efforts, and with their cunning and power turn to Jesus' followers. They must prevent all they could from receiving salvation purchased for them by Jesus. By so doing Satan could still work against the government of God...Also it would be for his own interest to keep from Jesus all he could. For the sins of those who are redeemed by the blood of Christ, and overcome, at last will be rolled back upon the originator of sin, the Devil, and he will have to bear their sins, while those who do not accept salvation through Jesus will bear their own sins. p. 61, Para. 1, [1SG].

Remitting the Sins of Others
Repenting for Others

http://www.pdxprays.com/uploads/3/9/1/6/39160377/prayer_walking_handbook_-_henry_gruver.pdf
Gruver, Henry - THE BASICS OF REMITTING OF SINS - After His resurrection, Jesus told His disciples, “Whosesoever’s sins ye remit, they are remitted unto them; and whosesoever’s sins ye retain, they are retained.” (John 20:23)
What does it mean to remit sins? What’s the purpose of it? Also, I want to look at a closely related issue: What does it mean “to redeem the land”—to claim the land back for the Lord and bring it back to Him? By that I mean to be really possessing the land, not just co-existing in it with the forces of evil…When you remit, you: relax, absolve, release, pardon, discontinue, acquit, surrender, leave off, moderate, mitigate, alleviate, desist, as in “cease and desist.”  That should give you an inkling of the kind of power there is in remitting someone’s sins.  Here is another synonym that is really powerful: soften.  Have you ever met a hard callused person? You can begin to soften those calluses by remitting that one’s sins.  
Here are some more synonyms: relent, excuse, overlook, exempt, forward, dispatch, transmit, convey, transfer, consign, and deliver.  Think about those words in relation to sin. Clearly, there is power there!.  On the other hand, if you don’t remit someone’s sins, what are you doing? Consider these antonyms for the word remit: hold, withhold, keep, retain, reserve, tie up, persist, continue, exact, control, command, sway, dominate, avenge, take revenge, get the upper hand, impose a duty on, bind, enjoin, render 48 obligatory, make responsible, repress, suppress, restrain, restrict, prohibit.  Antonyms and synonyms will help you to understand whether or not you are choosing (with your will) the right (daily) mountain.  Are you getting the picture of those 2 mountains in front of you: the Synonym Mountain of Blessing, and the Antonym Mountain of Cursing. Which mountain have you been climbing? Which act have you been performing? Have you been releasing others? Have you been sending them forward?  Have you been dispatching, transmitting, conveying, transferring, consigning and delivering them? Then you have been remitting sins.  If you have been making others responsible, placing them under obligation, repressing, restricting, restraining and prohibiting them, you have not been remitting their sins. You have been retaining them.  At the risk of repeating myself, I will say it again. You can be (or facilitate) either a blessing or a curse.  Choose the blessing and live. Looking at the Greek Strong’s Dictionary for the word translated as “remit” in the New Testament, we find that it means “ to: cry, forgive, lay aside, or, forsake.”  It comes from a root word meaning “off”—as in, “Get it off from me!” “Shake it loose!”  According to Strong’s Concordance, this root word “usually denotes separation and departure.
WHERE IS THE WORD, “REMITTING” IN THE WORD? - Let’s look at some more scripture. Mark 1:4—“John [the Baptist] did baptize in the wilderness, and preach the baptism of repentance for the REMISSION OF SINS .”  The life and ministry of John the Baptist shows us clearly that repentance and remission of sins are closely linked. That’s very important. Paul said it is by “the foolishness of preaching” that men are saved. That doesn’t mean we preach foolishness, but it means that men get saved through the preaching of something that seems foolish: repentance for the remission of sins…
All those who need Him are also my: mother, brother, sister, son or daughter.  Yes, it is a sacrifice for me to leave my home and family (if and when personally and specifically sent by the Lord). But if I am dead, and my life is hid with Christ in God (Colossians 3:3), then I really left them way back when I gave my life to Him.  I just get to enjoy their fellowship when the Lord sends me back home.
In the 3rd Chapter of Romans…understand the declaring, or crying out, which we talked about earlier, in connection with the remitting of sin and redemption of the land. Verses 23-25; & 4:1-8—“For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in His blood, to DECLARE His righteousness for”—what?—“the REMISSION of (my/our/family/ bloodline/ancestral) sins that are PAST, through the forbearance of God. To declare, I say, at this time His righteousness, that He might be just, and the Justifier of him which believeth in Jesus…Even as David also describeth the blessedness of the man, unto whom God imputeth righteousness without work, saying, ‘Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered. Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not impute sin (nor transfer the curse/consequence to offspring/descendants).’” We have the power to declare the remission of sins, through His righteousness. What sins? The sins that are past. It does not say, “the recent past”, or, “last week”, or even, “all the sins one person committed in the past”.  It says, “sins that are past”—that includes all the past sins in an individual’s life, in his father’s or his mother’s life, in his grandfather’s or grandmother’s life, and in the life of any of his ancestors…
We have the power to declare remittance for the sins that are past—even those committed in the generations that came before us?”  Exactly…The Bible says concerning the remitting of sins: The CRIES of INNOCENT BLOOD and the SINS of the PAST.   This is one of the most vital truths of all when it comes to redeeming the land…Many times I have entered into an area, begun to walk it, and heard the cries of innocent blood coming from that land. Countless times I have seen visions of the abominable acts that were committed there, which defiled that land…
I was walking along the Wye River in Great Britain. As I came near the base of a cliff, I heard the cries of young teenage girls. Even today, I could take you right to the place. I have 6 girls of my own. I know what 13 and 14-year-old girls sound like.  The cries I heard told me that they were about that age.  63 I began making my way through the dense undergrowth, praying in the Spirit, when a righteous indignation rose up in me. “Whoever is hurting those girls are going to have to deal with me,” I thought.  My ears were hearing cries of desperation, the cries of young girls who were being brutally molested and violated.  “Lord, give me the strength to knock heads. I don’t care if there are 30 of them, or 100,” I prayed. “No one has the right to treat children like that!”  As I continued making my way through the brush, the Holy Spirit began to speak to me. He said, “Don’t take this personally.”  “Lord,” I asked? “What are You talking about? Nobody has the right to do such a thing. I couldn’t see what was at the base of the cliff. When I heard the cries, I honestly thought several girls were being molested right there, at that very moment.  Breaking into a clearing at the base of the cliff, I found that the ground was packed solid, like the ground I had seen in the concave area above the Devil’s Pulpit. Nothing was growing there. There was another big circle of stones, too, and charcoal from many fires.  It was all I could do not to fall on my hands and knees and begin clawing at the ground with my bare hands, trying to dig down to find those screaming girls. I thought they were under a thin layer of earth or something. I was hearing their cries coming up through it.  At that point a vision from the Lord came before my eyes. I saw Roman legions encamped in the area and soldiers going through the villages grabbing young girls, killing some and taking other captive. They brought them to the very spot where I stood, and they abused them.
Then they murdered them and threw their bodies into the river. I saw lifeless bodies floating down the river. The Lord said, “This happened back in the 3rd century, and their innocent blood is still crying from the ground.”  “Lord,” I countered, “I don’t understand. What am I to do? What is my responsibility concerning this? Why would You show me such
a thing if there is nothing I can do about it
?” His reply was simple and to the point, “You remit those sins.” My thoughts were the same as some of yours when you 1st heard this teaching.  I voiced them to the Lord. “I don’t have the power to remit sins that happened way back in the 3rd century!”  His reply to me was, again, simple and to the point, “Open My Word,” I did…In Romans 3:24-26…there it was: “to declare His righteousness for the remission of sins that are past.” That was good enough for me. I was excited, “I’ll take it, Lord, I’ll take it!”  He then further explained to me that, “You will not redeem this land back unless you take this stronghold, because to this very day, molestations and seductions and orgies are taking place around these fires. The reason it is allowed to happen is because that innocent blood sealed a deed with the god of this world, giving him the right to take this place as one of his strongholds. Take it back, and I won’t let such things happen here anymore. You will free this ground, and not only the ground, you will free the entire creation around here. This ground will begin to come forth with life in it. No one will come in here to commit those kind of acts anymore.”  I did just as He commanded. I walked over that ground, praying and remitting the sins of those Roman soldiers, as well as the sins of their descendants. I prayed for that generation, right on down to those who were alive that very day, who were still suffering under the grievous yoke that was the result of every sin and abuse their forefathers had committed on that land.

RELEASING THE GOODNESS OF GOD - What do you do after you have remitted the sins that were committed in an area? Then it is time to release the goodness of the Lord over the land, and over those who are currently living there.
Gruver, Henry - http://preachthekingdom.net/uploads/3/4/3/0/34309222/

_part_1-16_elaine_cook_bible_study.pdf - Henry says, “I think one of the greatest things in the breakdown of Christianity is taking things personally and getting upset. We may have made a wrong move in traffic and someone reacts against us. We should quickly ask for forgiveness for ourselves, and remit their sins and not take it personally. If you don't, you retaliate in kind and declare your rights. Before God, we have no rights to declare. We are dead, and our life is hid with Christ in God.  The purpose for remitting sins is to restore fellowship back with the Father.  It was lost in the Garden. We are to stop running and covering ourselves with fig leaves. Fig leaves are sticky and itchy. Sin is a sticky, uncomfortable feeling, just like the feeling you get from wearing fig leaves.  You can remit sins many times a day. Anytime you see sin, you should remit it (even in a total stranger).
John 20:23 says, “Whosoever (which means anyone) sins you remit.” The 1st Pentecostal Assembly of God MELCHISEDEC PRIESTHOOD, THE, Parts 1-16 [Elaine Cook] ~ BIBLE STUDY 3 pastor in Tokyo told him, “You are introducing a new doctrine. We don’t know anything about remitting sins.” He invited him to talk about this on TV before 31 million people.  The opposite side of the coin are sins “...retained, they are retained.” Are you carrying someone else’s sins on your life? Your 1st response would be: “No way! They’re responsible for their own sins.” If you see them sin and you retain those sins, they will affect your life. An evidence of this is: If you should see some young people spraying graffiti on a wall, and you go down the road, muttering: “Those stupid young people.  What is the matter with them? Oh, they’re just so rebellious these days.  They have no respect for other people’s property.” Do you know what you just did? You murmured and complained about it and retained that sin, which will have an effect on you. It leaves bitterness in your spirit. They did it, but it stuck in you and you need to repent of it. Instantly, you should pray, “Father, in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, I see them doing that. That is evil. I remit the sin in the hearts of those young people that is causing them to do that. I ask you to turn Romans 2:4 to them so that your goodness will lead them to repentance. Release Mat. 9:38 upon them and send your Christian laborers to surround them and love them. If You want me to go back and witness to them, I will. Always be willing to be used of the Lord. Be aware of Mat. 26:28 which says, “For this is My blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.”
Part #3 -
Newsletter No. 188 – October 2002 - Henry Gruver insists that remitting sins is something you can do every day, many times a day. “When you see a sin being committed, you should remit that sin in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Even if you see a total stranger sin, you should remit it“John 20:23 says, “Whosesoever sins ye remit.”
That means whoever you choose. “You remit”.  Jesus said you had freely received forgiveness.  Now freely give it. (After being born-again) If you can’t forgive others, you can’t be forgiven. Unforgiveness locks you up so that sins begin to accumulate in your life (your soul and body)...
Luke 1:77-79.  “If the earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof, how did evil people get the land to build abortion clinics, houses of prostitution, street corners on which to sell drugs? How did evil obtain this foothold in the land?  Romans 3:25 says, “To declare His righteousness for the remission of sins.”  Strong’s Concordance says of the word “sin”: “through sin, the devil takes ownership.”  Are we saying that if sin is not covered, it allows the devil to take ownership?  Just start sinning and see how long it takes him to manifest his nature.  “If we can believe that for a human body, why can’t we believe it for a geographical land mass? We have been going across the earth and redeeming back the land and creation. We’ve been calling it back to the ownership of the Lord Jesus. We began by remitting the sins that had been committed there that caused the ownership to be lost and given to the god of this world. Is this something that should be preached around the world? Luke 24:47 answers that: “That repentance and remission of sins should be preached among all nations.”
MELCHISEDEC PRIESTHOOD, THE, Parts 1-16 [Elaine Cook] ~ BIBLE STUDY 5 - “To what measure do we remit? Jesus read out of Isaiah 61, “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.”   “What is most interesting is what He left out.  “The day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn; To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord that he might be glorified.” Isa. 61:3. There is going to be a wonderful exchange here and we shall plant righteous trees.  “When you remit, you release. This is our job! He ever liveth to make intercession for us (the saints). Who is making intercession for the sinners? The Body of Christ! That is our job! So, remitting sins is the best entrance we can make into a person’s life.  “There was a man who jumped out of an alley and put a knife to my throat saying, “Give me all your money!” I started remitting his sins and he dropped the knife and asked me, “What are you doing?” I saw all that murderous anger drain out of him.  He lost the spirit of murder and robbery. I smiled and said, “I was praying for you.”  “He cried, ‘What? Don’t you know this is a real knife? This is not a rubber knife! I was going to cut your throat after I got your money.’” “I asked, ‘Why didn’t you?’”  “He answered, ‘I lost the desire.’ (“Remit” means to “release, relax, absolve, pardon, relinquish—and that’s what had happened to him. It really works!) “As I was telling this incident in Japan, I felt to address my words to a man whom I discovered later worked with the CIA and was a top martial arts trainer. He had attained to the 10th degree in karate. When I told this story, his mouth dropped open and tears streamed down his face. He told me later that he thought he had the greatest form of defense possible, but now he had heard of a better way: the remitting of sins and wanted to learn this new way...All who are called unto the Melchisedec Priesthood shall surely learn this new way of setting mankind free.  “What can cause us to LOOSE America faster than anything?
Lev. 17:13,14 tells us that the life of all flesh is in the blood. This is made plain in Gen. 4:1-10 where Cain killed his brother Abel. When the Father asked him about it, he answered, “Am I my brother’s keeper?” “God said, ‘The voice of your brother’s blood crieth unto me from the ground.’ I have been to many places where I have heard innocent blood cry out of the ground. I have walked right up to the door of abortion clinics because I have heard the cry of the innocent blood that washed under the street there. Their blood is crying out and we wonder why we have drive-by shootings and gang warfare on the top of the streets. The innocent blood is crying out and the covering of God is gone from our nation. “We wonder why there are certain sections of the freeway where fights break out and people kill one another. It could be that a sewer line carrying innocent blood is flowing under that street, or the freeway has been built on the site where battles, rapes, and every kind of evil has been carried out. Even officers of the law are helpless to keep the peace in certain areas. The “high places” are still ruling.  Satan possesses them because the cause of the problems have never been dealt with.  The evil dominions remain by blood shed and blood guiltiness.  “Some verifying verses are: Lev. 18:24,25; II Kings 17:8-11; Jer. 16:10-19; Ecc. 9:18; Isa.59:12. Lev. 25:23,24 is very revealing: “The land shall not be sold forever: for the land is Mine; for ye are strangers and sojourners with Me. in all the land of your possess
ion ye shall grant a redemption for the land.” “How do I do that? I remit the sins of the shedding of innocent blood as many generations back as needs be."
Part #4 - Newsletter No. 189 – November 2002 - The Spirit brought to my attention that Stephen, the martyr, cried out: “Lord, lay not this sin to their charge!” He was remitting their sins while they were murdering him! Did not Jesus do the same when on the cross He cried, “Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do” Luke 23:34. He also was remitting their sins while they were murdering Him, a righteous Man and their Saviour. Not only to those present did He speak those words, but to every man who ever lived. Do you still have any doubts about remitting (forgiving) sins? I hope not. Just try it and see both yourself and the one who has wronged you set free. We can see the results here when we remit sins, but isn’t it too late to remit those sins that are past, that were committed in previous generations?”
This could be a question in your mind at this point. We’ll quote from Henry Gruver, the “prayer-walker.” Lev. 25:23, 24 says, ‘The land shall not be sold forever; for the land is Mine; for ye are strangers and sojourners with Me. And in all the land of your possession ye shall grant a redemption for the land.’  The land is the Lord’s, but you shall grant a redemption for the land! How do you grant redemption where there has been the shedding of innocent blood? I remit the sins of the shedding of that innocent blood as many generations back as needs be.

Souza, Katie - CD set Stay Un-Offendable #2 (track 4) reminds us that many individuals who are in spiritual captivity need preliminary repentance of (their) sins on their behalf (We are to stand in the gap the same way Job did for his children.) taking advantage of the shed blood of Jesus on the cross
Job 1:5 Once each series of banquest was over, Job would send for them (offspring) to come and be purified.  At dawn on the following day, he would make a burnt offering for each of the.  'Perhaps,' Job would say, 'my sons have sinned and in their heart blasphemed,' so that is what Job used to do each time.  (Also, scripture indicates that often Jewish kings like David, used to repent for their citizens, as did Jewish rabbis for their congregations.)  In addition, we are to apply Holy Spirit dynamos resurrection light power to do laser surgery on their soul wounds resulting from the sins.  We are to do this on their behalf (at least once daily for 15-20 minutes) until the Holy Spirit releases us. www.expectedendministries.com
Souza
, Katie - Monthly Soul Time editorial - Releasing the Light of Christ - "Stop getting mad (and impatient) at your rebellious loved ones.  They can't repent, because the enemy has taken their will captive.  Start repenting FOR them
Next, pray for them, by releasing the (glory) light (anointing/virtue) you have in (side of) you towards them, to heal their (wounded) soul (spirit/mind/will
)."7.20.2016

Wommack, Andrew - 10/18/2016 - The Believer's Authority - http://www.awmi.net/video/this-weeks-tv/#/2016/week42/tuesday - (Like Job) we can stand in the gap/gate to REMIT/prevent/remove others' past, present
and sometimes future sin, or at least the typical curses/medical-symptoms/consequences, such as those dictated in Deuteronomy 28
.  Jesus died and rose again for the REMISSION of personal sin and defective inherited DNA.  Nonetheless, those for whom we pray do need to cooperate with/receive/accept the Trinity to not personally invalidate/erase what Jesus did for them.  Thus we can invite/invoke/apply Jesus' blood covering and His DAILY GRACE but typically future grace is not storable, like the manna which Moses and his tribe could not store.

Repenting TO Others

Scripture

http://www.jesus-is-savior.com/Bible/american_standard_version_expose.htm -
"
James 5:16 in the ASV makes a horrible change. The ASV reads, 'Confess therefore your sins one to another.'  
The KJB reads, 'Confess your faults one to another.' (Author insists)  We are never to confess our SINS to anyone except God alone.  (Author says regarding 1st Timothy 2:5). The ASV is catering to the Catholics who believe that they must confess their sins to a priest. Of course, this is sheer heresy. We are never to confess our sins to a minister or priest, who are saturated with sins themselves! The Bible tells us to confess our FAULTS to one another, NOT sins. A fault may be coming to work cranky or perhaps lacking understanding when under pressure. We all have faults. Ephesians 4:30-32 commands us to be 'kind, tenderhearted and forgiving to one another.' We should be nice to people, but don't disclose any-thing which could come back to haunt you.  We should let people know that we have feet of clay, but never show anyone your feet. Only God needs to know our sins, not man."  (The ASV is now in the public domain.)

Ferrell, Ana Mendez - http://vijonline.com/sermons/iniquityListsPrayers.pdf -
 
Ana contends we ARE to confess/share our unforgiven sins to a respected SAFE confidant who will hold

us accountable and stand in the gap with us before God. 


It is also OK to be publicly humiliated (eve falsely), as was Christ, for the purpose of becoming nothing,

that the Trinity might become all in and through us.

Ferrell, Ana Mendez - Shaking the Heavens - chapter 16 Weapons in the Place of the Forest - section A chink in My Armor -

Shares that a (venial) sin/mistake forgiven/repented of sometimes is more speedily remedied on earth than in heaven. 

The repair in question pertains to our spiritual armor/defense/hedge which sometimes takes time to mend/restore when we

have allowed the enemy access/legal grounds from our relapses/carelessness/sin.

Graham, Ruth - Wednesday, November 6, 2019 + Monday, November 11, 2019 - Confess ONCE to the correct safe group.

Renner, Rick - Confess Your Faults One to Another - "If you experience a time of real need in your life when the devil is assaulting your mind and emotions, you might need to go to your spouse, a good friend, a brother or sister in the Lord, your pastor, or your parent and confess: 'I need someone to help me! I’m being attacked in my mind, and I need someone to speak to me and to tell me the truth'...Find a friend in whom you can confide, one who will not repeat what you tell him or her. Tell that person you have something you need to confess...'Falling' may be an actual falling into sin, or it may be a tripping up in the way one thinks...This perfectly describes what had happened to me that time when my mind was being harassed with those distracting thoughts. The devil was pounding away at my head, and I was starting to believe the lie. As a result, it was affecting me; I was even starting to produce failure in that part of my life. I had bumped into a mental lie that was about to knock me off my feet and cause me to make some very erroneous decisions in my life.  I think of others who were harassed in their minds and never confessed it to anyone. Because they were not able to conquer those lies by themselves and yet were too proud to confess it to anyone else, these people eventually became enslaved by the lie and ended up doing some very regrettable things. If only they had confessed their faults to a godly (safe) friend who loved them, they (perhaps) could have been liberated from the lie and the actions that followed.  When you blurt out those destructive lies to a trustworthy friend, your confession is often the very thing that throws that lying spirit off you. As long as you keep those lies secretly hidden away in your mind and soul, they will continue to have the power to hold you hostage. But the day you expose them to the light of day, those lies will begin to lose their power over you!  You may be afraid to confess what you’ve been experiencing because in the past, something you shared privately wasn’t held in confidence. That memory is Satan’s ploy to keep you all tied up. But you must forgive those who betrayed your confidence and go get the help you need right now. Get that lie out of the darkness! Bring it into the light so it can dissipate and lose its power over your mind and emotions.
Lord, I thank You for speaking to my heart today about confessing the things that are secretly bothering me. It is no secret to You that I have been struggling with fear, insecurity, and temptation. You know that I desperately need someone to stand with me in faith and to assure me that everything is going to be all right. Help me to know exactly to whom I should go to discuss what is disturbing me — someone who will be faithful to hold what I say in confidence. Once I confess this burden and get it off my heart, please let this be the very act that sets in motion the power to liberate me!
I confess that I have friends who are trustworthy and in whom I can confide when Satan is trying to pound my mind with his lies. I do not fear that friends will laugh at me or repeat what I tell them. They will stand with me, speak the truth to me, and help me step out of the darkness and into the light. My confession will break Satan’s vice grip on my mind and bring wholeness and soundness of thinking to my soul!

(Also, we have a personal psychiatrist, God's Holy Spirit and counselor,
Who is available to us 24/7.  Invite Him to begin: to mentor, heal, help, deliver you
and to meet you where you are at right now, in Jesus' name, power and love.)

Confess Sexual Sins to Mate ?

Moore, Beth 11/18/2009 To Know and Be Known   http://www.lifetoday.tv/qt/2009/11/91104.htm
Wednesdays with Beth archives http://www.lifetoday.org/site/PageServer?pagename=bth_media
Life Today archives http://www.lifetoday.org/site/PageServer?pagename=tel_USCalendar
Beth, says, "NO, NO, NO" to cathartically" fessing up" to one's partner of past sexual partners and exploits, as understood or perhaps misunderstood by many counselors and counselees.  Most adults and especially youth are NOT spiritually and/or emotionally mature enough to competently handle others' or even their own secret sins.  Even if one has repented to both others and God, it does NOT mean they have forgiven oneself or taken/received God's forgiveness, and thus may continue to "feel guilty" and thus act/speak inappropriately or self-destruct/sabotage.  The bottom line is that once our sins are confessed, they are under the blood and forgotten by Jesus.  If one particular area is still full of spiritual or emotional puss, then perhaps that part of the soul is broken or fragmented and needs ministry.  See Ana Mendez ministry above regarding healing of a broken heart.

Confess Sexual or other "dark" Sins to Children ?

Greenwood, Rebecca - Let our Children Go - Chapter 9 The Power of Affirmation - (NO, we do NOT share our "dark" past (forgiven) sins with our offspring; they are under the blood of Jesus. He has already forgotten them according to scripture. 
2nd, we may consider our children mature enough to handle such matters, but each child is different in maturity - spiritually, emotionally and developmentally.  Unless God Himself gives us the green light, it is best NOT to share such matters which may bite you later on if you do NOT pay attention to the Holy Spirit and His leadings. 
The old saying goes, "When in doubt, don't.")

Let Me invade your space and see another facet of Me."

Repentance   http://www.demonbuster.com/repentance.html -
Repentance involves understanding/becoming aware of things that offend God.   

Teshuvah, or Repentance - http://www.myjewishlearning.com/article/repentance/ @ The Jewish Religion: A Companion, published by Oxford University Press - The usual word for sin, averah, is from the root avar, “to pass over,” hence “transgression,” overriding God’s will, The usual word for repentance is teshuvah, meaning “turning”– that is, from sin to GodRepentance is acceptable, the Rabbis teach, at any time, but the special time for repentance is the season from Rosh Hashanah to Yom Kippur, the Ten Days of Penitence. In all the rabbinic sources, repentance involves two things: remorse at having sinned and confession of the sin. The numerous rabbinic statements regarding sin and repentance are scattered through the Talmudic literature and are not presented in any systematic form. A useful summary is given by Maimonides (Teshuvah, ch. 1 and 2), although the very attempt at systemization departs, to some extent, from the openness and fluidity of rabbinic thought(Rabbi) Maimonides writes: “If a man transgresses, wittingly or unwit­tingly, any precept of the Torah, whether a positive precept or a negative, and repents and turns away from his wrongdoing, he is obliged to confess his sins to God, blessed be He. How does a man confess his sins? He says: ‘O God! I have sinned, I have committed iniquity, I have transgressed before Thee by doing such­-and‑such. Behold now I am sorry for what I have done and am ashamed and I shall never do it again.’ What constitutes true repentance?  If the sinner has the opportunity of committing once again the sinful act and it is quite possible for him to repeat it and yet he refrains from so doing because he has repented‑-for example, a man cohabited unlawfully with a woman and, after a time found himself alone with her again and he still loves her and is still as healthy as ever and it takes place in the same province in he had previously sinned with her and yet he refrains from repeating the transgression–he is a true penitent...  
Repentance on Yom Kippur can only win pardon for offences against God such as eating forbidden food or illegal cohabitation and so forth, but there is no forgiveness for offences against one’s neighbor such as assault or injury or theft and so forth until the wrong done is put right. Even after a man has paid the restitution due to the victim he must beg his forgiveness. Even if all he did was to taunt his neighbor [i.e. and the question of restitution does not arise] he must appease him and beg his forgiveness. If the victim does not wish to forgive him he should go to him in the company of three friends and they should beg him to grant his pardon. If their efforts were of no avail he should repeat the procedure with a second and a third group but if the victim still persists in his attitude he should be left alone and the victim is then sinful in refusing his pardon."

Your prayers make a difference.  Yes.  It's always too soon to quit...
To declare the blood of Jesus over a person is a way of giving notice to the enemy that Jesus blood is a boundary he cannot permanently violate...based on Exodus 12:23.  The blood of a lamb applied to the doorposts and lintels of the houses of God's people protected their firstborn from the death angel who struck down and killed the firstborn in all the Egyptian households...
We must first agree with the Holy Spirit and His purposes...be in harmony or without contention.  When 2 of us pray in agreement with the Holy Spirit, we establish a '3-fold cord' that is not easily broken (Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 NKJV)."

Joan Hunter 2012 - TV transcript - radio here - Mistake Reversal - Here is awesome inspiration, mentoring and hope for our mistakes, which can be reversed by the Holy Spirit, in Jesus' name.  "She would beat her sons and beat them, and beat them. She came in one day and she says, 'I just wish I had not beaten my boys. My life would be a whole lot better if I had just not beaten them'...So I prayed with her and I said, 'God, I thank you for erasing the pain in her life and her sons' lives and her sons' memory.' So she says, 'I'm going to go ask them one more time to forgive me.' She goes to them and they go, 'You didn't beat us, Mom. Yeah, you disciplined, but you didn't beat us.' (Previously) She had to seek counseling; her children were almost taken away from her because she beat them so bad...It was really bad.  They're like, ‘No, you spanked us, but you didn't beat us.’ Then she talked to her husband. ‘I'm so sorry I beat our boys.’  It's like, ‘You didn't beat them.’ He's the one who took her and made her go to counseling for fear that the boys would be taken. He didn't remember any of it."  This gives us better insight into God's saying, "I will forgive their wickedness and will remember their sins (our mistakes) no more." Hebrews 8:12 NIV and Jeremiah 31:34 NIV Also see Micah 7:19  (Let us go before papa God, in Jesus' name to lay individually one at a time every "mistake" at His feet for Him to erase and cancel from memory, at least the emotional harm inflicted on others, as well as on His Son Jesus and on ourselves.  In His mercy even reverse the physical injury, when that is the case.  Then, in the future, after the Trinity has intervened, if Satan the accuser returns with the same taunts, remind him to go away as he is a liar.)

Back to the Future

Joe Joe Dawson - Prophecy: The Lord Is Releasing Powerful Encounters to Re-Mark Many  4/23/2018 "I heard the Lord say the word 'remarkable,' but He broke up the word into 3 different parts, 'Re-mark-able'...The Lord started at the end and said, 'I am able to re-mark people.' There are people who the Lord has marked, but somewhere along the way, something went wrong. I feel some people have disqualified themselves because of different failures or circumstances. But my friends, God is able to re-mark you.  Even if you feel like you have lost your mark, you haven't. God is re-marking you.  Many of you may feel as if the Lord is far away from you, but my friends, if God seems far away from you, He is not the one who moved. You may have pulled away from the Lord, but I feel so strongly that the Lord is re-marking you today."

exodus/33-22.htm -21The LORD continued, “There is a place near Me where you are to stand upon a rock (Jesus),

22
and when My glory passes by, I will put you in a cleft of the rock and cover you with My hand until I have passed by.

23
Then I will take My hand away, and you will see My back (past/history); but My face (present/future) must not be seen.”

Excellent discussion on how judgments attract similar negative circumstances and bind/prevent/blind our mate from helping/protecting us.  "Judgments of dishonor give Satan a legal right to bring all kinds of (evil/nuisances/ problems) things against you."
"Lord, I forgive __________ who has hurt me, and I tear up the IOU's. 
All of those injustices, I tear them up and lay them at the foot of the cross. 
I ask You Lord to forgive me for my sins of judging.  Lord I want to be free. 
I receive my freedom now."2.20.2015

I have locked myself into that same behavior/attitude.
I choose to forgive him/her for hurting me.
I choose to release my right to hold this hurt against him/her, knowing it is up to You only to judge all of us. Please forgive me for the sinful ways I’ve reacted and for the ways in which I have done the very same to others.
Lord Jesus, forgive me for judging ___________.
Now I see I am reaping the same pattern throughout my life.
I choose to forgive, and release my anger and bitterness to You, Lord.
Please remove it from my heart.
Forgive me also for my part in tempting _______________ to do the very thing I hated by the power of my expectancies. 
Thank you for the transforming power of the cross. Amen."

Baker, Heidi - Compelled by Love - www.irismin.org - Chapter 3 Blessed Are the Merciful  "But - a very important part - she forgave herself and let the hatred and rage go.  So, she was able to receive the mercy of God and (thus) poured His mercy out...Forgiveness is often the starting point of freedom."
Baker, Heidi - The Hungry Always Get Fed - www.irismin.org - Chapter 8 Christmas in Revival  12/3/2005  "The Lord spoke to me that there were 10 women in the meeting who had severe back pain because of issues of unforgiveness.  As soon as they came forward and repented, Jesus healed all 10."

Banks, Bill - Deliverance for Children - www.goodnews.netministries.org - Section Gate of Abuse notes that Christian parents need to impress upon/INSIST that their children FORGIVE immediately, lest a demonic/negative emotion/stronghold take root. (Obviously the child needs to understand that forgiveness is NOT permission for another to continue abuse!  The child also needs to know what steps he/she needs to take to defend oneself, as well as what steps the parents are taking to defend him/her)..."There are many parallels between literal wounds in our flesh and the spiritual wounds which may occur in our souls (minds).  When a wound is fresh, actual deliverance may not even be required," if one is quick to forgive.  "Not allowing 'the sun to go down upon his wrath,' he will not give 'Satan any place' within himself (Ephesians 4:27), thus preventing demonic entry" (or foothold or preventing a problem such as unforgiveness/shame/anger/hate/fear to take root and grow).

Basham, Don - Deliver Us From Evil - www.chosenbooks.com - Don is deceased.  Book is an intimate autobiography of Pastor Basham's walk with God as He reveals that some problems are caused by evil spirits.  This opened up the deliverance ministry to Don.  Well worth the reading.  Deliverance power is available to us, but we need to claim and appropriate it, in the name of Jesus.  When ministering we can ask the spirit/ spirits to name itself. For instance, there is a spirit of adultery, choking, confusion, epilepsy, fear, fear of heart failure, fortune-telling, gambling, gluttony, insanity, laziness, lust, necromancy, nerves (nervousness), nicotine, palm reading, wantonness, violence, witchcraft, etc.  Lack of forgiveness may be the largest single contributor to demonic bondage.  Be reminded, we are to speak to the spirit in the person and NOT to the person.  This is very important.  Be sure that the patient/client is aware of this, so as not to take it personally.

Bell, Stephen - If You Forgive - booklet - www.thekeym.org - Euless, Texas, USA ministry   Book concentrates on devastation and elimination of bitterness.

Bevere, John - The Bait of Satan - www.johnbevere.org - John notes that there are many steps in forgivenessA most important step is to ask God to forgive us, when we have been wronged.  Why is this?  Because anyone who holds onto yesterday's hurts is sinning against God, against the other person, and against himself.  A rehashing of past hurts brings not only emotional distress but also physical problems, because man is body, mind and spirit.  Unforgiveness is one of the biggest causes of illness in the world, including family and church.  Wars are based on unforgiveness.  Most all relationship separations are based on unforgiveness, including separation between me and God.
Chapter 11 Forgiveness You Don't Give - You Don't Get shares an unnamed testimony of a Pilipino pastor who had a near death experience, where he saw his born-again mother-in-law in hell.  The Lord explained to him that the mother-in-law had refused to forgive a relative, and thus she herself could not be forgiven!  (Now this should scare us into running to the altar to repent!  Also see video Raised from the Dead, autobiography of Nigerian pastor Daniel Ekechukwu.  Daniel met a born-again-pastor in hell! www.cfan.orgMatthew 7:21-23 NIV    "Not everyone who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of My Father Who is in heaven.  Many will say to Me on that day, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, in Your name drive out demons, and perform many miracles?'  Then I will tell them plainly, 'I never knew you.  Away from Me, you evildoers!'"

Bleasdell, Babsie with Libersat, Henry - Refresh Your Life in the Spirit - Catholic Servant publisher - Caption - How the Holy Spirit Can Empower You Every Day  Chapter 8 Dangers the Holy Spirit Help Us Overcome  section Special Act of Sorrow from the Salesiman Missions  "Forgive me my sins, O Lord,  forgive me my sins; the sins of my youth, the sins of my age, the sins of my soul, the sins of my  body; my idle sins, my serious voluntary sins, the sins I know, the sins I have concealed so long, and (the sins) which are now hidden from my memory...
I know my sins have wounded Thy tender Heart, O my Savior.  O my Savior, let me be freed from the bonds of evil through the most bitter passion of my Redeemer.  O my Jesus, forget and forgive what I have been."  (Thank You, Lord.) Amen"

Bosco, Antoinette - One Day He Beckoned - publisher www.avemariapress.com - Autobiography.  In Chapter 3 Meeting and Re-meeting Jesus, Catholic author quotes Oscar Wilde, "When Christ says, 'Forgive your enemies,' it is not for the sake of the enemy, but for one's own sake that he says so, and because love is more beautiful than hate.  In his own entreaty to the young man, 'Sell all that thou hast and  give to the poor.'  it is not of the state of the poor that he is thinking, but of the soul of the young man, the soul that wealth was marring."  Bosco learned that to look for and find Jesus in a hurtful person, is preceded by the need to first find Jesus in oneself.  She had reacted in rage/anger to being insulted.  Why had this happened?  What buttons had been pushed?  She discovered it was her self image that was needy. She had to forgive.  (One needs to recognize that one's spiritual worth is based only on the price Jesus paid on the Cross and not on what one does or is.)  Bosco quotes Reinhold Niebuhur, "Forgiving love is a possibility only for those...who feel themselves in need of divine mercy, who live in a dimension deeper and higher than that of moral idealism, feel themselves as well as their fellow men convicted of sin by a holy God and know that the differences between the good man and the bad man are insignificant in His sight."

the word of God declares, 'Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin [not the pride] of the world' John 1:29" KJV.  "Confiding to the pastor about an adulterous affair, for example, is no substitute for confessing to the wife...What is finally on my slate?  That depends on me. 'As [a man] thinketh in his heart, so is he' (Proverbs 23:7).  As long as I am in the probationary school of life, a past judgment can be erased by a present one...I can say, 'This is me, but I am sorry!'"

Chapter 7 The Blackout   "One sin He does NOT forgive is unforgiveness.  It is pointless to try to enter the presence of God, while holding hatred and bitterness in our hearts towards our brother or sister.  He will not receive us.  And we will receive nothing from Him because there is NO forgiveness for unforgiveness.  Until you forgive, as Jesus said, neither will your heavenly Father forgive you.  'But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.'  (Matthew 6:15)  I had failed in this regard when a brother, who I despised, delivered the Word of God to me...Make a distinction between the message and the messenger."
Chapter 10 Walking the Land  "A person doesn't  really understand or appreciate grace (forgiveness/mercy) until he ministers it" [to others (deserving or not)], for but by the grace of God there likewise go I. (What if I had been born crippled or with Mongolism/mental retardation?  What if I had been born in prison, concentration camp, or city dump?  What if either I or my parents were mentally ill?  Each of us comes with a lot of inherited or acquired baggage, which we need to unload onto the cross of Jesus Christ.)
Chapter 13 These Foolish Things - Make "a sharp division between pride and sin, between cause and effect.  For the failure (omission) and the sin (commission), the Blood of Jesus cleanses.  But for the pride (self-righteousness/root issue), which produces the sin, God resists.  The ONLY answer is that I must humble myself under the mighty hand of God.  Get ride of the spider (pride) and that will get rid of the web (sin)."

Clark, Randy - There Is More - www.globalawakening.com - Chapter 8 Impartation to See shares the testimony of Lucas Sheridan who explains why the Holy Spirit could not at the time release His blessing to Annapolis, Brazil.  It was due to unforgiveness and broken relationships.

Copeland, Kenneth - John G Lake - Kenneth Copeland Ministries - www.kcm.org - Lake explains that in Leviticus 16, Jesus represents both goats.  Jesus took our sins upon Himself on the cross.  He also was led by the Holy Spirit into the desert for a 3 day testing by the evil spirit, Satan.  Each day represented 1 year of the ministry of Jesus.  There were 3 tests, 1 for His human spirit, 1 for His mind (soul) and 1 for His body.  Christ came to redeem not only our spirit, but also our mind and body.  Seeing His example, Lake admonishes us to not only seek salvation for eternal life in heaven, but also to seek salvation of our mind and of our bodies.  If we consecrate ourselves (body, mind and spirit) to God, Satan will have no legal right to harm us, and we will have every legal right for healing of body, mind and spirit.  As the Jews had to contend for Canaan/Israel (the land promised to them by God Himself) so we have to contend for our healings.  God our dad will back us, as long as we repent of all known sins and continue to fight for what we have been promised by what Jesus did on the cross - perfect health in spirit, mind, and body!  Our current sin is focusing on sinfulness/repentance to the neglect of focusing on our empowerment/dominion.  We are repenting as the Old Testament people did up until the time of Christ, but are neglecting to assume our inheritance and  kingship.  For all practical purposes, Christ has died in vain.  We are saved but impotent Christians, unless we lay claim to Christ's resurrection power in both our bodies and minds.  Saving the spirit for heaven is of little earthly good!  The Holy Spirit wants to grow us up into clones of Jesus Christ.
In chapter 31 The Power of Divine Healing Lake contends that healing is the evidence of God's forgiveness.  Lake continues on to announce that each forgiven believer in Jesus is a priest who can (without human ordination) heal + forgive/pronounce absolution and the remission of sins, in the name of Jesus.  Some of those who took God up on His Word are the Moravians, Finney in America, Hudson Taylor in China, Evans Roberts in Wales, and Seymore in California, USA.

Dickerman, Don - When Pigs Move In - www.dondickerman.net - mentored by Frank Hammond - Other books containing "some" of above more complete information are  Serpents in the Sanctuary and Turmoil in the Temple.
Chapter 10 The Power of the Tongue  Dickerman Pray, In Jesus name, "I forgive.  I repent of unforgiveness; I know it is sin.  I put it under the blood of Jesus...All the works of the flesh.  I put it under the blood of Jesus, and by doing so I break Satan's power and legal rights to my life.  I break the power of generational curses and deny permission of any demon spirit to my life.  I repent of and denounce any contract I made with Satan; since he is a liar, no contract is binding.  By the blood of Jesus I free myself from any pact with the devil.  I renounce all unholy oaths, vows, pledges, and ceremonies.  I denounce and confess as sin all unholy soul ties, for Jesus is my Savior and Lord.  He is my deliverer and my healer. He broke the power of curse!  I choose to be free...Amen"
Chapter 12 More Personal Accounts  Human forgiveness has to be like God's forgiveness, "not based upon them deserving it...Read Matthew 18:23-25... Forgiveness is not saying what happened is OK...Jesus said...'I love you anyway.'  When you forgive, you are not saying what happened is OK.  It was painful then, and it is painful now.  What you are saying is, 'I wish no harm for you.  I want God to love you just like He loves me.  If vengeance is in order, I release that to God, because He says, 'Vengeance is mine; I will repay.'"  Romans 12:19
Chapter 17 What Exactly Is Scriptural Deliverance?  "Unforgiveness is God-given permission for demons to torment" ANYONE, Christian or Gentile.
Chapter 18 The Deliverance Courtroom  "Confessing the sin cancels the demons' rights to one's life, but it does not necessarily mean that the demon leaves.  They must be commanded to go, in the name of Jesus Christ.  They must be cast out."  Jesus won the court case on the cross, but we His deputies need to enforce His legal victory, in Jesus Christ's name and Holy Spirit power.  God's holy angels then are empowered to accomplish what we speak in His name.

Blaming others does not fix/heal/resolve a problem.  Holding a grudge can be called malice which can infect and permeate like yeast/fungus.  Forgiveness eliminates the emotional burdens of resentment, bitterness, anger and jealousy
Prolonged bitterness can cause arthritis, migraines, indigestion, ulcers, and/or colitis.
Never say, "He makes me sick,' or " I'm sick and tired of him."
We prevent God from forgiving us, when we refuse to forgive another! 
Unforgiveness turns us over to torment.
Unforgiveness blocks deliverance.
Unforgiveness stops our prayers from getting answered.
Unforgiveness binds us to the one we despise.
Unforgiveness imposes no conditions. (Trust is a separate issue!)
Forgiveness is a debt we owe to another, ourself, and God.
Forgiveness is an act of the will (and NOT a feeling).
Hammond, Frank D & Ida Mae - Pigs in the Parlor - A Practical Guide to Deliverance book  www.thechildrensbread.net -
Unconfessed or unrepented sin gives a demon a legal right to remain to oppress or indwell us in that area of demonization.  Not only do Christians need to go to confession, but they also need to resist reentry.  We do NOT say, "No darling, sweetheart, demon of anger, you cannot have a voice."  Rather we do say, "In the name of Jesus Christ, anger does not belong in the temple of God, me.  Get lost."  Direct your anger towards the enemy, not yourself/family/friends/etc.
Scripture: James 4:7-8 NIV Submit yourselves, then, to God.  Resist the devil and (THEN) he will flee from you.  Come near to God and He will come near to you.  Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded.
(Spiritual insight = The medical name for schizophrenia is double-mind.  If we listen to ourselves or God and then listen to Satan, we get confused.  It is imperative to know scripture and to meditate on it day and night, so as not  to allow the enemy to trick us into believing/doing things contrary to Father God and thus place our spirit and soul/mind in turmoil.)
Unforgiveness is the most common reason for not being able to be set free...A specific area of unforgiveness and not being able to be delivered is that of not repenting for an abortion or not repenting for participating in/encouraging the abortion of another.
Hammond, Frank D - Overcoming Rejection - booklet www.thechildrensbread.net - Chapter 3 Reactions to Rejection shares that a "spirit of memory recall" is a companion spirit to bitterness, which keeps painful memories of past hurts alive by continually replaying old tapes.  Hammond explains that self-pity is self-affliction whereby one permits thoughts of unfairness to replay until one becomes miserable.  It is sort of like a drunk drowning himself in alcohol.  Judgmental people tend to "project" their own faults into others, to the extent of blaming others wrongly for a sin/problem in themselves!
Hammond, Frank & Marzullo, Frank - The Tales of 2 Franks  booklet  www.thechildrensbread.net - Authors share story of woman who needed to confess an abortion.  Having told demons in her room to leave in the name of Jesus, they did not obey, revealing that they had a legal right to stay.  She confessed her abortion as a sin, repented, commanded (in the name of Jesus) the evil spirits (abortion, murder, child sacrifice, lust, fornication) to leave and not return, plus asked the Holy Spirit come in.  Then she read aloud Psalm 18 in every room of her house.  The demons never came back.

Heidler, Robert D - Set Yourself Free - www.glory-of-zion.org - This book is a pre-deliverance, deliverance, post-deliverance, and self-deliverance manual.  One major self-defense against relapse is to forgive.  Forgive even those who do not come and ask for forgiveness.  If need be, forgive that person daily, as long as/whenever hate/bitterness/hurt/ superiority/etc rises in your thoughts.  Heidler reminds us to recognize (asking the Holy Spirit to bring to our mind), repent of, confess, plus renounce each sin of which we are aware.  (Do this at least yearly, plus before taking communion.  Scripture reminds us that many are sick, even unto death, as a consequence of receiving/taking holy communion improperly.)
Chapter 5 Strongholds of the Heart shares a testimony of a disgruntled wife who, upon repenting of her grumbles towards her mate, was immediately healed of her longstanding back pain.
Rehearsing and reliving the past hurts, harms us and not the offender!
Forgiveness does not need the offender to repent/confess/apologize.
Forgiveness does NOT require justifying or explaining the why of another's behavior.
Forgiveness does NOT require forgetting the offense or denying the hurt. 
(That often comes later with healing of memories.)
Forgiveness does NOT require telling the offender that you forgive him/her.
Forgiveness may require us to give up our right to hold another accountable for wrong they have done.
Forgiveness is our permission/choosing to release our victimizers into God's hands/justice/mercy.
For each one released to God, we declare them forgiven.
Finally we pray a blessing over each offender.
Forgiveness erases my right to think or speak negatively about the offender.  Forgiveness closes all recognized past doors/offenses, cutting off Satan's entryway into our present.
(If the forgiven past offense, like a Jack in the box, tries to regain our attention, we must, in the name of Jesus - capture it and place it under the blood/feet of Jesus.)

Hinson, Michael - To Heal the Heart - Live Life to the Fullest - www.hinsonministries.com - www.tohealtheheart.com
Chapter 5 The Truth about Forgiveness shares that God sent Jesus to separate sin from us, to forgive us, not to forgive sin. (In fact, Hinson says to do the opposite of what many have been taught - to forgive the sin rather than the sinner.)  Hinson says to do the opposite, to forgive the sinner, not the sin/offense.  Look closely at scripture to see that people rather than sins are forgiven.  It is the sinner who is purified/forgiven.  It is the memory of sin that is forgotten by God (in that He will not hold us accountable)It is the power of sin to negatively influence us that is removed  We can repent of the sins of our ancestors to allow God to break a family curse.  To summarize: First, a sin, thought or action, is rejected/confessed/ repented of.  Second, a curse is removed/broken.  Third, a sinner, a person, is forgiven. An individual absolved of sin is free to enter the presence of God. To simplify.  Adam's and Eve's act of eating forbidden apple/fruit was disobedience/sin/evil/ naughty/rebellious/etc.  The individuals needed to be forgiven.  Otherwise, they would never be able to be reconciled to God.  God forgave them, not their rebellion.  Rebellion is always sin.  Sin is always sin.  Sin always causes death/ separation from God.  Forgiveness separates the sin from the sinner, like weeds from the harvest.  Hinson also models for us the art of asking what personal incident happened at the time the disease/infirmity occurred.  Often the answer is the root of the problem.  Hinson provides significant prayers at the end of the book; superior.  Contrary to most, Hinson contends that one does NOT have to forgive oneself for having/participating in an abortion, because accepting God's forgiveness is sufficient to accomplish all that needs to be done for oneself.  (However a problem arises when the individual does not accept God's forgiveness, or listens to Satan's accusations rather than to what God says in scripture.  When we believe or listen to a lie, then we need to repent and ask the Holy Spirit to help us.  Additionally we need to allow others to love us, plus we need to reach out in love to others who are wounded.)

Horrobin, Peter - CD - www.ellel.org  - The Most Powerful Prayer on Earth - Pray the Prayer That Can Transform Your Life -
Horrobin contends that anyone who refuses to forgive, but insists that God forgive him, is a hypocrite.  If God forgives us, we MUST also forgive ourselves.  Jesus forgave all those who put Him on the cross.  He is our example.  He is our mentor.  Forgiveness is NOT a feeling.   It is an act of the will.  Forgiveness has nothing to do with whether or not a person deserves to be forgiven.  It has all to do with suffering the spiritual consequences if we do NOT forgive.  Forgiveness does NOT mean we need to  trust an untrustworthy person.  Forgiveness may come in layers like an onion.  We keep on forgiving each time we hurt when a memory surfaces, until at last we are pain free and the pus from the wound is gone.  Unforgiveness allows the past to haunt the present.  Now is the time to forgive.

Johnson, Bill - The Supernatural Power of a Transformed Mind - www.billjohnstoministries.com - www.ibethel.org
Chapter 1 Change Your Mind admonishes born-again Christians to repent enough to be forgiven AND enough to see/experience/operate in/demonstrate the kingdom of God on earth.  When we pray for another we are to EXPECT miracles and to observe/ask the person to do something they could not do before the prayer.  Born again Christians should not become like dead/smelly/putrid/foul/useless/powerless fish.  The puffer fish is full of poison and swollen up like one who is self-sufficient.  Let us professing Christians not poison all those who come into contact with Jesus Christ.  Rather let Jesus Christ be a sweet fragrance to His people NOW, today.  Allow Jesus living in our flesh be miraculous to those who encounter us.
Chapter 6 Guilt-Free and Forgiven  "Jesus  got what I  deserved, so that I could get what He deserved...When the enemy brings up a (forgiven) sin from your past, he is talking about something non-existent.  It's completely legal for you to say,
'I didn't do that.  The person who did that is dead.  This person has never done that.'  Either the blood of Jesus is completely effective, or it's not effective at all."

Jones, David - Humble is the Way - www.houseofpraiseinternational.org - Chapter 14 Humility and the Ministry 
"Someone has to take the lead, so don't wait for the other person to repent."

Jones, Stephen E  Secrets of Time - published by God's Kingdom Ministries, Batesville, Arkansas, USA
Leviticus 25:54  If he be not redeemed in these years (of servitude/indebtedness/obligation), then he shall go out
(be released/ relieved of his debt) at the end of the Jubilee cycle (every 50 years).
Chapter 1 has a wonderful section on "jubilee" where we are instructed to remove bitterness and forgive God - for not delivering on His promises, thus allowing God to deliver in His time.  We know the law of God and obey, but many of us do not know God experientially in may of these same legal areas.  Job is used as an illustration of having a right/forgiving/ humble attitude towards God before, during and after God's "temporary injustices". 
Another illustration of Biblical forgiveness is that of Joseph forgiving his brothers.  Genesis 50:19-20 (Brothers,) fear not; for am I in the place of  (to represent) God?  As for you, ye (you) thought evil against me; but God meant it (my betrayal by you) unto good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive (from the great famine).
Jones contends (1) that God has a "left hand" (tough love of justice/parenting), (2) that we should not be so quick to blame the devil, (3) that some evil may be deliberately allowed  by God as a "temporary" injustice/hardship.  Such would be the crucifixion of Jesus Christ.  Sometimes evil can be God's permissive will, allowing Satan to have temporary/partial victory.  This tricks the devil; let it not trick us!  Remember, for each offense against Job, Satan had to have permission.  Satan also had perimeters!  During the trial of Christ, Jesus reminded the authorities that God was in control and not them.
Father God, forgive us for blaming You for not providing what You promised in Your Word or for what we feel are legitimate needs.  Help us to trust You implicitly and humbly.  Please give us a right heart.  Help us to hear and obey any instruction. 
In the name of Your Son Jesus, we pray.  Amen

Total Forgiveness by R.T. Kendall  Read chapter 1 here . - www.rtkendallministries.com  Recommended.
Once we have received forgiveness from God and others and given forgiven God and others, we need to forgive ourselves!  That may be the key to set us free. (See Joyce Meyer TV broadcast web link below.)

2nd Corinthians 12:7  says Paul had "a thorn in the flesh, a messenger of Satan, to torment".

Kelley, Earthquake - Bound to Lose, Destined to Win - http://earthquakekelleyministries.org/books/ - Chapter 14  Questions & Answers - "Offense causes us to hold a grudge, which makes us angry and bitter.  Anger and bitterness lead to unforgiveness, which causes us to hold on to the belief that we have a right to feel the way we do because of how we were treated.  We might spend our lives wanting to make the person pay for what they did to us...
Our health will be destroyed as we develop a multitude of physical and mental disorders...Anything less than complete forgiveness is an open door to the enemy...See them (offenders) as people who have allowed  the enemy too much control in their lives, just as you are (now) doing when you live with bitterness and unforgiveness (which)...could keep us out of heaven."  When we say, "I'm not going to forgive because I have a right to feel this way after what this person did to me," then you are committing rebellion which God calls the sin of witchcraft which will keep you out of heaven!  In the final analysis, you have offended God and sabotaged your own eternal life - unless you immediately repent!  Ouch!  Jesus said, "If you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.  But if you do NOT forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses."  Matthew 6:14-15

Liardon, Roberts - God's Generals - www.robertsliardon.org - Chapter 9  Kathryn Kuhlman, the Woman Who Believed in Miracles - Kathryn believed that self-centered persons often draw disease to themselves like a magnet. 
Self-pity, self-centeredness, self-hatred, self-indulgence or any other introspection/self sins cause self-condemnation/judgment and an inability to apologize/repent/allow forgiveness.  The only one who cannot be forgiven is the one who cannot say I am sorry (or who is unable to appropriate/receive/accept Jesus' forgiveness). This is a dangerous place to be.

Lozano, Neal - The Older Brother Returns - www.heartofthefather.com - We need to repent for any sinful response to any hurtful experience.  We are accountable to God for our responses to life.  [On the cross Jesus said, "Father forgive them, for they know not what they do."  Unforgiveness is an open door to sin and disease.  A negative response to an offense is accepting a lie of Satan.  For instance, if our mate divorces us, we might say, "I'll never love again."  The real enemy is not our former mate, but rather, self-criticism, false-expectation, co-dependency, control, bitterness, resentment, rejection, unworthiness, hate or any other hurtful evil spirit.  When  we personalize an attack of the devil, we accept the lies (self-talk) of the devil.  We become the victim, not of our mate, but of the devil!]  The devil has a legal right to accuse/blame/shame/ molest/disqualify us as long as we continue to believe his lies.  We need to repent and place all wrong thinking under the blood of Jesus.  Then we can tell the enemy of our thoughts to decease and desist, in the name of Jesus.

MacNutt, Francis - Deliverance from Evil Spirits - www.christianhealingmin.org
Chapter 12 How the Demonized Person Prepares for Deliverance encourages the person seeking deliverance to confess his known sins, especially those contributing to the onset of his illness; preferably aloud to a mature Christian.
James 5:15-16 - The prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise him up.  If he has sinned, he will be forgiven.  Therefore confess your sins to each other; pray for each other, so that you may be healed.

Madison, Richard L. - Raised from the Dead - www.rickmadison.org - Chapter 5 Running out of the Wheelchair    "The Lord showed me a picture of some people toward whom I had hatred in my heart...I said, 'Lord, what are You showing me?'  The Lord said, 'Call them and tell them that you love them and forgive them, and that you want them to forgive you. You want to be healed, but I want you to forgive first'...I said, 'Lord...You know how badly they hurt me."  The Lord said, 'Do you want to walk again?'"

McKenna, Briege with Libersat, Henry - Miracles Do Happen - www.sisterbriege.com - Chapter 2 The Lord Lives in a Battered Tent  "Peter forgave himself.  If he hadn't, he couldn't have taken on the task the Lord gave him...The difference between Peter and Judas was Peter's ability to say, 'Well, I sinned and denied my Master, but He has forgiven me.'  Judas couldn't forgive himself and couldn't accept God's forgiveness.  We must not allow guilt to beat us to the ground...into discouragement or depression."

Wendell E. Miller - http://www.amazon.com/Forgiveness-Puzzles-Wendell-E-Miller/dp/product-description/0964144107
"Will you, or that loved one, become a spiritual, emotional, or behavioral slave to the 'enemy' who has offended you? Will that 'enemy' be able to 'cut the telephone line' between you and God, or between your loved one and God? Will you, or your loved one, drop out of church for years?  Bitterness is a cancer that erodes spiritual vitality. The lack of a willingness to forgive or improper applications of `forgiveness' are the cause."

Perez, Benny - Upside Down - www.pacesetters.org - www.thechurchlv.com - Chapter13 The Power of Letting Go  - "Forgiveness allows you to continue to move in God's realm...Our sin matters to God and it hurts Him...Unforgiveness kills your faith and leads to torment...Unforgiveness will torment you until you forgive...Your bitterness and anger torment you...God is not going to torment you, but you have opened yourself to torment because of unforgiveness...If you have bitterness and unforgiveness in your heart and you ask God to forgive you, He does not even hear you (unless we first forgive our brother his trespass per Matthew 18:35)...Forgiveness is not a feeling; it is a choice."

Pierce, Chuck D and Sytsema, Rebecca Wagner - www.gloryofzion.org - Protecting Your Home from Spiritual Darkness
Chapter 8 Ten Steps to Protecting Your Home from Spiritual Darkness shares that one will benefit from repenting for any sins committed in one's home or vacation spot.  Not your own sins but the sins of former occupants.  Demons can be territorial and have legal permission to stay until evicted, in the name of Jesus.  One can pray that the Lord will heal any past trauma which occurred in your home and resulted in the residency of demonic forces.  One can pray that the Lord will heal any present trauma which occurred in your home or due to the residency of demonic forces.  For instance, a family member may have demonically induced nightmares resulting from trauma of former occupants (abuse/murder/etc).  That does not mean that a home is haunted.  Rather it means an evil spirit has permission to occupy until it is discovered, bound, and placed under the blood/feet of Jesus.  After the evil spirit is gone, one can ask the Lord to restore to you/your family whatever blessings were stolen by the enemy through demonic forces that occupied in your residence.

1 - The Holy Spirit and You
2 - God's Medicine Bottle - Speaking Scripture aloud with each meal is medicine to mind, body, and spirit.
3 - God's Remedy for Rejection - "Recognize the nature of your problem and call it by its right name - rejection."  Forgive.  "Decide "to get rid of the bad fruit that rejection has produced...bitterness, resentment, hatred, and rebellion...are poison...
Receive and believe what God('s son Jesus) has already done for you.  [God] has made us accepted in the Beloved. Ephesians 1:6 NKJV."
Chapter 6 How to Apply the Remedy - "Jesus prayed...'Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing' (Luke 23:34)...Why do I need to forgive...Whether he is dead or alive is NOT important.  It is for your sake that you are forgiving, not for the other person...The failure to forgive is one of the most common barriers to God's blessing... Forgiveness is NOT an emotion; it is a decision."  "Accept yourself.  Sometimes this is the hardest step of all. 
I tell Christians, 'Never belittle yourself.  Never criticize yourself.  You did not make yourself.  God made you'...
You can no longer evaluate yourself on the basis of the way you lived before...As you repeatedly  declare who you are in Christ according to God's Word, you will begin to override the old negative self-talk and learn to accept yourself."
"It is time now for you to claim your release and pray a prayer that will set the seal...
Lord Jesus Christ, I believe that You are the Son of God and the only way to God.  You died on the cross   for my sins, and You rose again from the dead.  I repent of all my sins, and I forgive every other person as I would have God forgive me.  I forgive all those who have rejected me, hurt me and failed to show me love, Lord, and I trust You to forgive  me. 
I believe, Lord, that You do accept me...
Now Lord, I proclaim my release from any dark, evil spirit that has taken advantage of the wounds in my life. 
I release
my spirit to rejoice in You.  In Your precious name, Amen....(Ignore any and all negative feelings/
manifestations that the enemy may exhibit.
) Thanking God (out loud) sets the seal on your release."

"
In 1988, my wife and I were attending a Charismatic Catholic Church in Miami, Florida. We loved what we felt at that church. The church held a retreat for men called The Emmaus Retreat. It was a powerful weekend of ministry and contemplation. During a quiet time while I was praying outside in the rose garden there, I saw the face of Jesus before me. When I looked into His eyes, He took me on a journey to my (horrific) childhood...
I started feeling the stirrings of God that I was to go back to Poland to face it all. Again, God in His gentle ways gave a confirmation.  A man came to me and said that the Lord was going to use me in a great way. He said that God had showed him that I was to go back to Poland to be healed. Without this healing, I would not be able to minister to others. He then furnished the tickets for our trip to Poland.  In Poland, we went to Stutthof Concentration Camp. My heart was filled with pain. As we walked to the gas chamber, the ovens, I could feel the pain of the thousands of people who had walked there so long ago. In the barracks were pictures of the Nazi officers who had worked the Camp. I heard the audible voice of God, 'Piotrusu. Piotrusu. Piotrusu.  You have to do something for Me. Go down on your knees in front of each picture and forgive them.' I said, 'I can’t do it.' The Voice said, 'You have to forgive them - before I can forgive you.' As I fell to my knees and forgave each one, I felt so different. I felt as if all of the things I had suffered in my life had been for a purpose – to give God the glory.  I had a joy that I had never felt before – a freedom in my spirit. I have been given a revelation that we must learn from this recent past. It is a foreshadowing of what will come in the future. We must restore His Commandments, especially the 1st 2 Commandments, if we are to be able to survive. If we surrender our lives to Him, trust
His provision, and worship His Holy Name, He will weave the pieces of our lives together, as horrible and painful as they appear to be, into a beautiful picture revealing His mercy, forgiveness, and unconditional love."

Roberts, Oral - When You See the Invisible, You Can Do the Impossible - www.orm.cc
Chapter 7 How I Discovered God Is a Healing God notes that forgiveness is an integral part of physical and emotional healing, so much so that salvation and healing can be synonyms.
Matthew 9:2 TNAB - 2When Jesus saw their faith, He said to the paralytic, "Courage, child, your sins are forgiven."...
Matthew 9:5-6 TNAB     5"Which is easier to say, 'Your sins are forgiven,' or to say, 'Rise up and walk'?  6That you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins".  He then said to the paralytic, "Rise. Pick up your stretcher and go home."

Sanford, John Loren and Mark - Elijah House Ministries, Spokane Valley, Washington state, USA - Deliverance and Inner Healing - 2.12 Demonic Specialists - There are both sins of omission as well as commission - by oneself, as well as by others (ancestors, immediate family, society).  All sin MUST be put under the blood of Christ (if not by others, then by us individually).  Even "anger itself is not sinful, but letting the sun go down on anger gives the devil a foothold...Ephesians 4:26-27."
Why Good People Mess Up by John Loren Sandford - "Learn how to shun temptation (especially sexual), and forgive those who have fallen." Read chapter #1 here .

Scanlan, Michael & Cirner, Randall - Deliverance from Evil Spirits - www.servantbooks.org  Catholic - "Repentance is often overlooked by whose who assume that the person in (demonic) bondage (seeking deliverance/simple exorcism vs solemn exorcism) has repented of all sins...The person could be actively nursing resentment or hatred, or he or she may not want to discontinue immoral sexual relationships or sinful addictions.  Frequently, the person may not have forgiven someone because he thought he had to feel forgiveness before he could forgive...
Christians believing in the Sacrament of Penance should utilize the sacrament...If a priest is present, confession can take place as part of the (healing) ministry.  If no priest will be present, confession should precede the (laity deliverance) ministry...A person may avoid repentance because a lying spirit has influenced them to this conclusion, because they do not understand repentance, or because they do not realize that they must forgive others who have not repented of their own sins."

Scherman, Rabbi Nosson - Viduy - (lyun Tefillah or confession or teshuvah/repentance) www.artscroll.com
Subtitle - The Linear Translation of the Yom Kippur  (This is one of many such translations.)  (from the ArtScroll Yom Kippur Machor) An ArtScroll Mesorah Series booklet.  Reads from back to front.  Rabbi Rambam believes that "there can be no repentance unless it is accompanied by a verbal confession."  To help with confession, the penitent person is to recite his sins in the order of the Hebrew alphabet, for G-d created the world with the 22 letters spoken in the Hebrew language; evil deeds destroy G-d's work.  Yom Kippur serves as a required annual holy day when Jews are to seek from G-d atonement and purity (cleansing).  The prayers of forgiveness are excellent, which all citizens of the universe would benefit from offering to G-d.  "Our G-d and the G-d of our forefathers, may our prayer come before You...

For You are the Forgiver...in every generation. 
Beside You we have no king, Who pardons and forgives.   Only You...
Behold.  Before You I am like a vessel filled with shame and humiliation.
May it be Your will, Hashem, my G-d, and the G-d of my forefathers, that I not sin again.
What I have sinned before You, may You cleanse (absolve us) with Your abundant mercy,
but not through suffering or serious illness.

According to Catholic sundaybulleltins@liguori.org  it is a Jewish custom to present one's children to a scribe for a blessing on the eve of the Day of Atonement/Yom Kippur, a 25 hour fast, from sunset to after sunset, to atone for one's prior year sins.

Smit, Philip - Entrance to Power - www.ezfaith.com - Do NOT try "to obtain holiness and forgiveness by practicing constant repentance under the law; instead" live "by the intuitions from the (Holy) Spirit, knowing that we have been forgiven for all sins of all times, 2,000 years ago."  If we have repented, but FEEL unforgiven, then we do NOT need to repeat the confession based on our negative emotions.  We are to take God's Word at face value, and believe that he is NOT a liar; the only liar is our enemy the devil.  We trust a Person, Christ, and NOT a scientific or medical fact, not a thing, nor a feeling.
"I have been forgiven more than 2,000 years ago...when I acknowledged that fact and thanked the Father."

Stone, Perry - The Meal That Heals - www.perrystone.org 

Stone, Perry - The Judas Goat - named after Judas who betrayed Jesus - "The keys for handling and dealing with seasons of betrayal, disappointment, discouragement, and unforgiveness - especially from those we love most.  The Judas goat is the name for an actual goat that is trained to work at a slaughterhouse. The goat is trained to associate with the sheep in the field - eating with them, lying down with them, and generally gaining their trust. When the time comes to lead the sheep into the slaughterhouse, the sheep will follow the Judas goat into specially marked pens, the back of trucks, and in some instances into the slaughterhouse itself.  In The Judas Goat, Perry Stone makes a strong correlation between this goat and the people in our lives - those closest to us - who betray us. Betrayal by enemies is expected, but betrayal by family and friends will plant seeds of bitterness that will mature into the fruit of rebellion and resistance. If the seeds are not rooted up and routed out of your mind and spirit, you will move into the garden of unforgiveness, leading to a barren, fruitless life."
(Regular confession is one method to help remedy unforgiveness and bitterness towards self, others and God.)

Sumrall, Lester - Joseph Trajectory of Faith - www.sumrallpublications.com -
Chapter 6 Trajectory of Forgiveness - "One of the greatest attributes in the world is forgiveness toward those people who have hurt you (and recognizing the contribution that harm has done to develop your good character).
Chapter 7 The Vision Fulfilled - "You can be mistreated and God can turn that sorrow into the best thing that ever happened in your life.  Someone can hurt you and that a hurt can become the most blessed event of your whole life.  Someone can cheat you and that can become the best thing that ever happened to you."
"Joseph said...'You meant it for evil, but God meant it for good'...It is NOT just the beginning of your life; it is the end that really counts.  Joseph forgave his brothers (and all others who caused him to suffer)...The trajectory of faith (in God and unswerving focus on your God given purpose on earth) can propel you through life, from birth to death."

There are so many ways and so many points of entry for these thorns of pain...Expose your woundedness to Me. 
Become vulnerable to My love and touch again.  I shall gently extract the thorn and...heal...Then turn with forgiveness to the who who inflicted the wound upon you and perhaps you will bring healing to the very one who caused you the pain. 
There is a mystery...about thorns that have been thrust upon the innocent.  When the wounded one turns to Me and asks both for forgiveness and healing for the perpetrator of the pain, an act of redemption begins.  Such love and compassion bring to bear many circumstances and conditions you cannot know, but which all work toward restoration...
[John 20:22-23 - Jesus said..."Receive the Holy Spirit. If you forgive (pardon) anyone his sins, they are forgiven; if you do not forgive them, they are not forgiven."  (Let us be the generation that stops the family curses.  Let us be the generation that begins the family blessings.  Let us be God's first miracle of healing of mental illness/depression/cancer/ you-name-it in our generation.)]  It was no accident that an innocent victim was impaled with a crown of thorns.  Within that crown of thorns there was the painful payment - the price for every thorn which would ever pierce My children.  In the midst of that great pain came the cry of which I have spoken to you (now and to My/our heavenly Dad), 'Forgive them.'
[Luke 23:34 KJV  Then said Jesus (dying on the cross of crucification), "Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do."]  [Compare to Keyton, Bree - Heart and Soul Surrender CD 
www.breekeytonministries.com - www.americarepent.com   Kansas City, Missouri.  Jesus' healing comes for our minds via His crown of thorns, for our bodies via His stripes, for our deliverance via His nails, and for our soul (sins/spirit) via His blood.]

Walden, Franklin (senior) - The Unmistakable, Visible Anointing- Following God's Calling for over One-Half Century - www.franklinwaldenministries.org   autobiography - A must read! Final Chapter Conclusion: You Can Be Anointed, Too! Final chapter tells us to both forgive AND to forget.  Ouch. 
That means we cannot gossip, tattle, resent, murmur.  We cannot backbite, defame, disparage, put down, belittle, judge.  "People are NOT getting healed or staying healed because" they discuss someone or something in a negative light that is supposedly (forgiven/forgotten by God) under the blood of Jesus Christ; it does NOT exist in the mind of God.  Ouch.  Lord, please teach us about such things.  Thank You.  Christ reminded Franklin that when He forgave him of a specific offense written in His book, that it had been erased/blotted out/was no longer documented.  Therefore it was accomplishing nothing for Franklin to repent again for the same thing (which was nonexistent in His book and forgotten by Him).  Likewise when he 1st repented of all his past sins and was adopted into the family of God, all those former personal sins were under the blood of God - both forgiven and forgotten.  [Likewise, if we tattle about a sin that is covered by the blood of Christ (forgiven by us or by Christ), then we are a liar, because the sin does NOT exist in God's eyes.  At least that is true of any sin which we personally commit.  If we have forgiven another, we do NOT want/need to share/expose/reveal that information with another; instead we cover him/her with the blood of Christ and pray blessings upon that person. (Due to medical/legal/ spiritual needs it might be necessary to share/document that information, but that would be a one time private incident and not an ongoing/repetitious accusle/slander/ incrimination.) Finally, we need to forgive ourselves.  Otherwise, we call God a liar, when He does forgive us - the first time we asked.]  There are WONDERFUL examples where incomplete forgiveness resulted in personal ill health, but when dealt with resulted in complete healings.  There are GREAT examples of spiteful words causing illnesses or at least keeping people in ill health, but when retracted resulted in immediate healing.
[If when we think/remember/recite a hurtful past incident and feel pain/woundedness/agony/sadness/anger/rage/etc. rising up in us then we need to put the cover on/refuse those emotions and go back to confession.  They are an indication that there is puss/infection/incomplete forgiveness/rottenness/venom/ crumbs of leaven hiding in our hearts.  We need to forgive (and then to forget) to the degree that any memory does not take us hostage and rewound us or harm another.  We need to be able to pray for and bless the injurer to the same degree that we would pray for a family member. 
Like God. 
Father God, accomplish this in us for Your purposes.  In Jesus name.  Amen.
Nonetheless, there are ancestral/inherited/family sins for which we need to repent. 
Some call these iniquities.  We do need to repent for, reject, refuse, and renounce those sins/iniquities, in Jesus' name.
Additionally there are spells/evil pronouncements/demons/strongholds/curses/etc.
which need to be exposed and exterminated.  God's holy glory cloud/atmosphere resulting from our thanks/praise/worship can single handedly do this in one swoop, saving us years of therapy and/or healing/deliverance ministry.]

Walker, Dennis - www.dunammisarc.org - Catching the Initiatives of Heaven - Chapter 5 Hindrances to Spiritual Senses section An Unforgiving Heart - "As long as you don't forgive, you will live in torment." Matthew 18:34...
People who were (are) under demonic control et set free, as they forgive...Be free from the poison of bitterness...
As you forgive, you are no longer controlled emotionally by a hurtful event or person...no longer stuck in time."

Walters, David - Equipping the Younger Saints    www.goodnews.netministries.org
Chapter 2 True Salvation   "Salvation still has to come through the Lord touching their spirits inside.  We need to pray that God will grant them the spirit of repentance (see 2nd Timothy 2:25)...If our children do not receive a genuine conviction of sin, they will take salvation very lightly...I tell them the cost of their salvation was very dear to God.  He sent His only Son to die for them  He did not have10 sons.  Just one...Jesus...died and rose again to raise up extraordinary kids...Salvation may be free, but it's not cheap."
Walters, Kathie - The Spirit of False Judgment - http://www.goodnews.netministries.org
Chapter 11 Acceptable Sins?  "I have cast out the spirit of shame from many Christians who have had failures during their spiritual walk.  Although they have known they were forgiven, the feeling of condemnation, shame and guilt was still present.  Those things are spirits and have to be prayed against...Our self-righteous attitude can keep people bound in shame for a long time."
Chapter 12 The Button  "As regards personal hurts and wounds, we individually have a responsibility to get healed...
In my experience, healing is linked to forgiveness.  We have to forgive and then healing will come.  Forgiveness is NOT a feeling, its an act we make by faith.  Don't afterwards let the devil tempt you to receive those negative feelings of unforgiveness back again... Take authority over them (negative feelings) in the name of Jesus, and command them to leave."
Walters, Kathie - Macon, Georgia, USA - Living in the Supernatural - www.goodnews.netministries.org - Chapter 3 Our Inheritance  tells of a diabetic being healed and subsequently relapsing due to unforgiveness, the door she opened for this sickness to return.  Repentance solved this issue.
Chapter 8 The Judgments of the Lord Are True  "God had been unable to use me because I judged the man in my own heart...My heart was not righteous or full of compassion.  But Arthur did not make that kind of judgment; he waited until the Spirit of the Lord spoke."  "If you have judged anyone according to your own judgment, repent and ask the Lord to reveal His heart for that ministry or person, before you try to fellowship with the Holy Spirit.  If you have been judged with a false standard by another person or by a church, first forgive them, and break the spirit of false judgment and (the spirit of) false standards over you.  Even God's standards, if given in a legalistic spirit, do not manifest the heart of God, because they do not contain His grace.  When you receive a word from the Lord for someone, and it contains correction or rebuke, be sure that your own emotions and biases are not involved.  Wait on the Lord.  Jesus never reacted; rather He always acted under the direction of the Holy Spirit.  If you react, your emotions will distort the word of the Lord, even though what you say may contain some truth.  A correction will become accusation.  If someone has judged you wrongly, and you want to set him straight, wait on the Lord.  He will tell you  whether to keep silent or to speak."

Wilkerson, Ralph - Beyond & Back - Those Who Died and Lived to Tell It - Chapter 5 I Saw the Living Dead shares the miracles in Indonesia beginning in 1967 when God turned water into wine.  3 natives saw a vision of Jesus Who instructed them to wash themselves and their hearts by prayer and confession of sin.  

Wood, Gary - A Place Called Heaven - www.garywoodministries.com - Gary warns that, "There are Christians who are in danger of losing their forgiveness from God because of their inability to forgive others....There is no place in heaven for those who are unforgiving...Never gossip or be jealous."  Jesus told Gary, "Above all else love one another and always be forgiving towards each other."

Wright, Henry W - Bitterness - www.pleasantvalleychurch.net

Wyns, Peter - Fighting Death and Other Desperate Battles - www.peterwyns.org
Chapter 18 Desperate Prayers for Fallen People section What About You reminds us to, "Pray out loud, in an audible voice...Furthermore, renounce the sins of your forefathers and the sins of your youth.  Leave no stone unturned."
Chapter 20 Desperate Prayers That Make Us Holy reminds us to always, forgive another, pray for good to come to the offender, and to bless him in practical ways.
Chapter 21 Desperate Prayers to Save a Nation warns us that each battle is not with people, but rather with spiritual powers of wickedness. Recognize the real enemy is not a person.

Yoder, Dr Rebecca Brown - Prepare for War - www.harvestwarriors.com - Chapter 16 The Spirit and the Spirit World contends that 1st John 3:15 (Whosoever hates his brother is a murderer.) is a spiritual law which can be used by evil spirits to cause ill health/death/tragedy by our human spirit to harm another individual to whom our hate is directed. One can pray for the Lord to shield himself against hatred + repent for any hatred in his own heart.

Antonia, Mother - www.servantsllth.org - headquarters San Diego, California, USA - author of Prison Angel - 2/6/2008 Ash Wednesday newsletter - "Today is a special day.  29 years ago, we started the day of forgiveness & instead of giving up chocolate, we each wrote a note on a small piece of paper, with the name or names of people who shamed us in life & we gave theses papers to be burned for the ashes to be blessed for Ash Wednesday.  We skipped from Ash Wednesday to Good Friday & said, 'Father forgive them for they know not what they do.' & then WE (repented to God) asked in our hearts all those WE have rejected, shamed or gossiped about, to forgive US & we invite you to join us in forging."

Brimm, Billye - www.branson.com/news/2010/11/28 "The Lord had instructed Dad that as a family, we were to hold hands and pray for one another at our gatherings.  He revealed to him, that is there was any ought or schism, causing hardness toward one another, it was to be forgiven, releasing the power of the Holy Spirit to work among us.  The Lord said to him that many times families would get together and there would be one member hurting, another needing an answer from God, another having to make a big decision, and they would leave in the same condition that they came in the door."  very very significant

Brown, Rebecca - http://www.harvestwarriors.com/downloads/February_08.pdf - "When we forgive someone, we acknowledge that we no longer have any right to revenge on that person."  Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use [mistreat] you. Luke 6:28 "Once we have forgiven someone, we no longer have any right to allow the memories or thoughts of what they have done to hurt us, to stay in our minds. Casting down arguments and every high thought that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ. 2 Corinthians 10:5 We MUST discipline our minds and stop thinking about ourselves...Ask the Lord to heal and change our emotions...You do not have the right to live your life reacting to past hurts.  God demands that you forgive and forget and stop thinking about yourself and how you have been hurt.  If you do not do so, you are (now) living in active sin!  This is one of the greatest areas where Satan and his demons (legally) attack marriages."

DENNIS:
I had a dramatic baptism in the Holy Spirit, didn't even know what I was…
but the presence of God came upon me after I had received what they call the baptism of the Holy Spirit at an altar. But the very next day...suddenly (under) the (heavenly) power, I just said, "God, I know this is the way we were meant to live and if I was confined to a wheelchair I'm going to live for you and serve you all the days of my life." Suddenly I was immersed with an open vision. I was immersed with a joy that was so powerful that I thought, my first thought was I need a new body. This physical body is not capable of containing any larger measure of joy. I didn't say stop, but I really thought my body was going to explode with the presence of God. I had an instant understanding that God was filling me from head to toe, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. I was indwelt by the Living God, and from the, that lasted without a reprieve for 6 months. I would see, I would walk by people and tears would just come out of their eyes and I never said a word.

DENNIS: 
I said, "If this is God. I'd better go to Bible school, because I don't know what's happening to me." 
He (God) said, "No, I am taking you to the School of my Spirit and I will instruct you."
It was so authoritative that all I knew was then out of this relationship I must obey.
DENNIS:
Out of my love for her, (wife therapist) I saw that she had all of the right answers in her head. So I wanted to get her out of her head, down into subjective experience with Jesus.
DR. JEN:
I saw in traditional therapy, Christian and secular, that the aim is to get people able to cope with life and feel somewhat better. One of the major problems is forgiveness is the key to doing this, but they teach forgiveness is a process. So people can go for weeks, months and years and never quite forgive, never get toxic emotions dealt with, continue struggling, which is what I had seen, even with Christian therapy. But what this (insight/method) does, 1st of all, it teaches believers how to go to Jesus the forgiver in them for instant forgiveness, just like when we got saved. It was instant when we got saved. You didn't wait for it.
DR. JEN: What I learned from Dennis, what the Lord had taught him in the School of the Spirit was all we have to do is in prayer present any emotion that's NOT the fruit of the Spirit, (thus) is NOT a good emotion, to the Lord and He will instantly, through His forgiveness, wash the negative out and replace it with supernatural peace. So where was once a wound there can be an anointing.
DR. JEN:
Toxic emotions don't go away. They just go under the surface and get buried in us including in the cells of our physical body. And we forget these things.  We forget they're even there.
DR. JEN: Forgiveness will instantly cleanse our heart of any toxic emotion, whether it was shame, fear, pain of rejection, anger. Everything we present we have to feel the feeling and present it to Jesus. He will take care of it every single time. And these (unreleased/un-forgiven/root) negative emotions are the very things that give ground for physical illness.
SID:
Dennis, take Dr. Jen as if she knows nothing and explain how the Holy Spirit taught you to take care of un-forgiveness and toxic emotions.
DENNIS:
Jennifer, I want to show you how to drop down into your spirit. I want you to picture like a bucket and a well; your mind has the bucket in it and we're going to change the location.  You're going to focus on your Bible heart. After all, we want the bucket to go down where the living water is, as we had a 3rd grader tell us, "There's no living water in your head." So we want to drop from our focus from mind to heart; it's like a bucket going down, and we know that that water is living and it's like an artesian well. It will rise up like a fountain into everlasting life. It will flow out of you even without saying a word.  You will create the presence of life. For it is God who is at work both to will and to do. Everything good happens down there when the bucket is down low.

DR. JEN:
So it's gone now and I feel peace...It was instant.
DR. JEN:
It wasn't any longer than that for you (or anyone) to get saved.
DR. JEN:
The Bible...says...the location of our (spiritual) heart...belly, bowels [houses our soul (emotions/will/mind)]. It seems that we have 2 different nervous systems.  We have the nervous system connected with the brain in our head, but we also have the enteric nervous system that is our emotional center. (Additionally the soul has spiritual organs/systems/awareness/feelings.)
DR. JEN
: The thing that's amazing is this is sometimes called the 2nd brain down here because it's got all the neurons in it just like the brain in your head, except this is the area where your emotions are processed. This is the area where the molecules of emotion are released...the area our emotional brain. Our emotional heart informs the brain in our head how we feel. There's a left vagus nerve that connects the two, but the brain in our head does not send information down to the brain in our gut. The gut sends emotional information back to our brain.
SID: Jesus says it's important to believe in your (spiritual) heart.
DR. JEN: Our heart influences our entire physical body because the belief in our heart is communicated to all our cells, released to our all cells from the epicenter of our spirit.
SID: Getting rid of the toxic emotions, it's so simple...then you're not blocked in receiving all the promises that God has for you. It even works with children.

DENNIS:
(A child) was just traumatized that he had killed...his rabbit.  So he missed the whole 1st week of school. He was there, but his head was tilted, he wasn't really there.  So I said, "I want to teach you how Jesus the Messiah in you can take care of any pain." I said, "Just close your eyes," and we did Bucket Man, "just like a bucket, down here. Jesus is there and he's going to take your pain and your sorrow. He's going to take it away. Now I want you to receive forgiveness," because he was blaming himself. I said, "Just receive it like a gift from Jesus the forgiver in you." All of a sudden watching him, the countenance went from that sad, dejected, instantly to a smile without him saying a word. You know that there's a transformation that's taken place in the heart with a smile.
DENNIS:
It started a chain reaction because other kids heard the testimony, they're crying and raising their hand..."My dog ran in the street during the summer and got killed."  "My grandmother died last week." All of a sudden I had a group of about 20, there was at least 5 who had, were relating to his ministry and they wanted Jesus to heal them. We went through it in a manner of minutes and then all of a sudden, he's raising his hand with a big grin on his face. I said, "What?" He says, "I think I had a revelation."  "What is your revelation?"  He said, "I saw my rabbit and her dog playing in Heaven."
DR. JEN:
(Regarding other children) I didn't tell them. They never heard our teaching on this, but they had learned (of) Jesus the forgiver. But the, one of the brothers kicked the little girl in the hand. She couldn’t move her hand. The mother said, "Okay, we're going to the doctor," because she thought it was broken, I mean, complete immobility, excruciating pain. 30 minute drive to the doctor and on the way there the mother said, "You know, we have Jesus the forgiver. We have Jesus the healer, too.  You guys, Sherry,(the little girl) "start yielding to Jesus the healer in you. Boys, we're going to release Jesus the healer out of our bellies to her."  The pain was had gone down significantly by the time they got to the parking lot at the doctor's office; so the mom said, they were counting down, where is the pain level now, it had gone from a 10, 1 to 10, being 1, none, 10, terrible. It had gone down from a 10 to a 4.  So the mom said, "Well, it's your call. Do you want to go in and see the doctor or do you want to turn around and go home and keep praying?"  They went home and they kept praying, and her thumb was totally healed. Now a couple of weeks after that her brother accidentally punched another brother, and the mom said she could see the broken bone in the back of his hand. She could see it with her eyes.  So she did some checking and learned a break like that would probably require surgery and pins. Now the little boy didn't want to go to the hospital and have surgery, so the mom gave him a choice, "Do you want to pray like your sister prayed or do you want to go to the doctor in the hospital?"  He said, "I want to pray." So they started praying the same way. He was yielding to the healer in him. They were releasing healing out to him and it took a little while, but the mom had never before seen an injury that she could see the visible evidence. That bone came back together.  They didn't just learn to yield to the healer in them. They were tapping into Jesus the miracle worker. And since that time the children have found out, because the mom said, having 5 children one is getting injured all the time, they have learned to regularly go to Jesus for healings. And she said the more they do it, the faster the healings are coming.
SID:
Well that sounds better than any insurance policy offered by your government.  They have found, against psychology, who says forgiveness is a process, you can instantly forgive (and instantly receive His forgiveness AND healing).
DENNIS:
Begin by doing just as I instructed Jennifer...Close your eyes...Change your focus down to your Bible heart, down to your spirit.  As you change your focus there...from that place...yield and release Jesus the Messiah, the healer, to rise with healing in his wings. The healer lives in you. Let him rise like an artesian well and welcome him. 
SID:
Not only does healing, Jesus the healer live in you, Jesus the forgiver live in you, but Jesus your shalom...peace. That peace alone is going to knock out that sickness.

DENNIS:
To be thorough, even with closing the door through forgiveness, they need to know it goes in 3 directions. They need to know that there can be a barrier between you and someone else. You need to let that river of forgiveness flow to them. You need to receive forgiveness. The Christians that were set free, who basically didn't have anybody do anything to them, they (self-sabotaged) did it all by themselves with self-hatred, anger, self-judgment. They would receive forgiveness and feel demonic activity (heaviness/ oppression) lifting.  Other times, believe it or not, they need to (reverse/relinquish/repent of) release the judgment they made against God, like why did God (rather than Satan) let that happen?
DR. JEN: When you deal with your negative emotions, by forgiveness they are exchanged for supernatural peaceIf you don't deal with them that they're hardwired into your brain while you sleep at night.  Scientists had discovered, in 2012/2013, through research that we have a mechanism in our brain that literally cleanses our brain of toxin and waste materials while we sleep. But also, when we sleep if we have dealt with any negative emotions of the day through forgiveness then any residue from that is also washed out of our brain overnight; but if don't deal with it and go to sleep on it then it hardwires into our long term memory.

Colbert
, Dr Don - www.drcolbert.com - The Cleansing Power of Forgiveness editorial in 5/2006 magazine Enjoying Everyday Life  www.joycemeyer.org - Synonyms of unforgiveness are buried anger, resentment, bitterness, shame, grief, regret, guilt, hate, and revenge, which contribute to or even cause nightmares, headaches, elevated blood pressure, flashbacks, confusion, and frustration.  Accumulated unforgiveness can create toxins in the body triggering such diseases as acidosis, autoimmune illnesses, gallbladder, cancer, and heart disease.  Forgiveness can reverse medical conditions!  God, not us, is the One Who decides if a person deserves to be forgiven; scripture commands us to forgive now, immediately,
with or without another's repentance.  Those who know that Jesus Christ has forgiven them before they asked and for free/no strings attached, are also expected to do the same for others, but only in the strength of His Holy Spirit.  Dr Colbert's daily prescription for us is to forgive daily.

Dickerman, Don - 5/2011 newsletter - http://www.dondickerman.net/id150.html - “'I can’t forgive my mom', she said. Her grown family and some of their children gathered and circled behind where she sat. I talked with her and explained that she must forgive in order for her to be free. 'If I forgive,' she said, 'She wins.'  'Oh no, no. When you forgive you win.' She insisted that she could not forgive her. I urged her to just simply say the words after me. 'I chose to forgive my mom'. She struggled and thru a mumble, she spoke, 'I chose to forgive...my mom.'   When she did, her entire family fell to the ground behind her! I have never seen anything like that. When she chose to forgive, she broke the chains that had even her family bound with curse. Wow...Don’t be so easily offended that you cause someone else to be wounded. Turn it loose, let it go, let the offender out of prison. Be the encourager! Be bigger than the 'offense' be an imitator of God. Forgive, show kindness and tenderhearted-ness, it’s an a spiritual aroma that God likes...
The Bible says that there is a FRAGRANCE of forgiveness, a sweet smelling savor to God! We can grieve His Spirit, or we can release a fragrance that blesses God...Forgiveness is better than mercy, it is the product of grace. It is guilt without consequences. It is to God a sweet smelling aroma."

Experiencing Forgiveness - tract - www.goodnewstracts.org - "Forgiveness is something we give to those who don't deserve it.  God offers us full pardon through Christ, though we surely don't deserve it."

Horrobin, Peter - ministry testimony - "When Jim had forgiven his father, we asked Jesus to heal his broken heart. It was then possible for his physical body to be healed also. I will never forget hearing Jim cry out, 'I can breathe! I can breathe!' Jesus had healed him on the inside, he was delivered from a spirit of infirmity and his asthma was gone forever. He had no more symptoms, no more medication and was never again restricted by his condition. When the trauma on the inside was healed, his body could be made whole." - per Sid Roth 3/2011 newsletter

Kendall, R.T. -  http://ministrytodaymag.com/index.php/features/7296-the-power-of-forgiveness - "As every pastor knows, the root of many people's problems is unforgiveness...An old friend from Romania, Josif Tson...said: 'R.T., you must totally forgive them. Until you totally forgive them, you will be in chains. Release them and you will be released.'
Nobody had ever talked to me like that in my life. 'Faithful are the wounds of a friend,' Proverbs 27:6 says. 
I once wrote a book called God Meant It for Good. One chapter in that book was titled Total Forgiveness.
The book Total Forgiveness is a detailed elaboration of that chapter and deals with every question I could think of...
1st, it is the way God forgives us. The blood of Jesus Christ washes away all sin. God will not hold our sins against us.
He will never bring them up. He will not allow us to feel guilty once we have confessed them and turned from them.
He will not let anyone know what He knows about us. He will not let us be afraid of Him. He will not allow us to feel guilty. He will let us save face; He protects us from our deepest secrets and fears and--best of all--He keeps on doing it.
2nd, total forgiveness is forgiving ourselves. I deal with that in the book, too.  It is not total forgiveness just to know we have been forgiven, but it is to forgive ourselves--the hardest thing of all for many of us.
3rd, it means to forgive another person in such a manner that you absolutely do not hold it against him or her any longer; you will keep no record of wrongs; you let them off the hook and even ask God to let them off the hook!
That is total forgiveness, it seems to me...You know you have totally forgiven when you stop (continually) reminding people about 'what they did.' Telling people what they did is our effort to punish those who hurt us.
1st John 4:18 says that perfect love casts out fear--and fear has to do with punishment. When we tell what they did, it is our way of punishing those people, so we look better, they look worse and will be discredited and not admired.  God doesn't like that. He won't tell what we did. He does not want us to tell what they did either. We therefore know we have totally forgiven when we stop talking about our hurt, refuse to let people be intimidated by us, and we will not let them feel guilty. This means we do not wait for them to repent (nobody was repenting at the cross, and yet Jesus prayed that they be forgiven.  Jesus, not the old covenant, should be our model). We let them save face. We know we have totally forgiven when the people who hurt us don't even find out it was a problem... (A one time initial confession/testimony to the police, counselor, pastor, and to God - is sufficient.  A constant rehashing/rehearsing is not OK.)  It is my opinion that totally forgiving one another will bring us closer to true revival than 1,000 people engaging in a 40-day fast. Why? Because if there is bitterness in our hearts at the beginning of the 40-day fast, there will be bitterness afterward--if God does not somehow break through to us. I can almost guarantee this...I will never reveal names or details. All I can say is, it (the hurt) is probably the best thing that ever happened to me. I totally forgave those people. Guess what?  I never told them! We never talked about it. It has to happen in the heart. Don't ever go to people and say, 'I forgive you for what you did.' They will say, 'What did I do?'  Then you will say, 'You surely know.' They'll reply, 'Well, I don't,' and now you've got a fight on your hands. Most people you would have to forgive (even if you were to hook them up to a lie detector) sincerely do not think they have done anything wrong...(On occasion as the Holy Spirit leads one may need to repent/forgive, such as for rape/genocide/murder.)  The consequences (of unforgiveness or forgiving without the Holy Spirit's oversight) are horrible. The person grieves the Holy Spirit, loses anointing, risks becoming yesterday's man or woman, often develops health problems and stays moody and hard to live with.
Kendall, R.T. - http://www.rejoicealways.org/total-forgiveness/ Part 1 - "The English edition of my book, Total Forgiveness, has a picture of Mount Everest on the front cover. Totally forgiving your enemies is like climbing Mount Everest, because few do it! And yet anybody can do it. And you can be set free. There are people who have suffered this hurt; it’s even affected their health. Medical people have shown that there are good reasons to forgive, apart from anything taught in the New Testament. They have found that bitterness has led to arthritis, kidney disease, heart disease. There are non-Christian organizations raised up in this country to help people to forgive, showing that the greatest benefit is not to the one who is forgiven but to the one doing the forgiving. It could even be that God would begin a physical healing; that the physiological process that has brought you to where you are could be reversed and you will not only be set free internally but you can feel better and look better, and you might wonder, why did I take so long? God is coming and saying, the war is over; bless them.  Total forgiveness is not necessarily reconciliation...Total forgiveness is not approving of what they did. Jesus forgives us; He forgave the woman found in adultery and said, 'Go and sin no more.' The fact that God forgives our sin does not mean he approves.  Total forgiveness is to take the words of Jesus seriously, and act upon them."
Kendall, R.T. -
Total Forgiveness Part 2 - "Total forgiveness – proof #1: you don’t tell anyone (others or offender) what they did if you have totally forgiven them.  There are 2 exceptions. One, you need to tell one other person for therapeutic reasons. I told Joseph Ton. You tell a friend or a pastor, but only one person.  The other exception? I had a lady came to my vestry who told me they had found her rapist and that they wanted her to testify at his trial. I said, 'You must!' But she said,
'I can’t because you have taught me to totally forgive.' I said, 'It’s good that you have forgiven him, but he is a danger to society; you must testify!' She did testify...
Proof #2 - "You don’t let them be afraid of you." (Regarding unholy reprisal, for God says that vengeance is His.)
Proof #3 - "You don’t even let them feel guilty...helping them to forgive themselves. He’s setting them free."
Proof #4 - "You let them save face!"
Proof #5 - "You protect them from their darkest secret."
Proof #6 - "Total forgiveness is a life sentence! Possibly the most important point.
What that means is – you have to keep doing it! It’s like if your doctor gives you a tablet and says, “You’ve got to take this the rest of your life.” It’s a life sentence! Total forgiveness is a life sentence – you’ve got to keep doing it!"
Proof #7 - "Total forgiveness is blessing them!"

winter 2007 newsletter editorial True & False Forgiveness - www.ncfliving.org

Susan Rashotte - Heaven's Heartbeat - His Forgiving Love 3/13/2013 - "True forgiveness can only come from a heart saturated in love poured out from Me. Any other attempts are of the flesh and will be short-lived. Jesus was My representation on earth for the world to see that I am a God of forgiveness as people turn and repent of their sins.
A heart of forgiveness is the only means of overcoming the chords that bind you to the enemy.  The moment you allow forgiveness to come into your heart, the chords are snapped and you are free. If I had not forgiven the ways of My people and made a way to be reconciled to Me, you would be a doomed people. Unforgiveness will grow and fester; the infection will spread throughout your whole body, forming a hard encasement around your heart, a hardness of bitterness that only a heart of forgiveness can break through. If you truly want a heart impartation, forgiveness is the key

Teshuvah - "The 1st of Elul, Rosh Chodesh Elul, marks the beginning of a 40 day period of repentance called Teshuvah.  The Hebrew word Teshuvah literally means to turn and go the opposite direction.  It is a time when Jewish people set their hearts to reconcile both with G*d and man.  They believe they cannot be fully reconciled to HaShem unless they have done all they can to be at peace with their fellow man.  They will go to great lengths to mend broken relationships and reconcile with anyone they may have offended. It is reminiscent of Yeshua's words to not offer a sacrifice if you know your brother is offended with you, but 1st go reconcile with your brother and then offer your sacrifice at the altar: Matthew 5:23-25  In religious synagogues the shofar is blown daily to call hearts to 'Wake up'! The period of Teshuvah intensifies as the days draw near of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippor. On Rosh Hashanah, which Biblically is called Yom Teruah, the Day of Blowing (the shofar) the tradition is to hear the sound of the shofar 100 times. A certain pattern is sounded that day in synagogues throughout the world to fulfill this mandate. The greetings on Rosh Hashanah include, 'May your name be inscribed in the Book of Life'.  Jewish tradition says that the Books in Heaven are open as Adonai then watches the hearts of men over the next 10 days, deciding their fate on Yom Kippor when the Books are closed and their fate is sealed for the year. Yom Kippor is a day of humbling yourself according to scripture.  To a Jew the best way to humble yourself is to fast.  Therefore, religious Jews will not eat or drink during that 24 hour period."

Walker, Dennis - http://www.heberworshipcenter.org/wp-content/uploads/2011/06/TheNineDeadlyEmbraces.pdf - www.dunamisarc.org - "You can eliminate this whole series (of medical symptoms) by going to the original offense, and giving it to the Lord. Not because the person who offended necessarily deserves it, but because you deserve to be free, and because God can only work on the situation when you release it to Him. Matthew 18 also speaks about the fact that if we don't forgive, we are turned over to the tormenters. The torment in mind and body.
The following is a prayer to help set you free: Repeat out loud (cup one hand and pull things from heart with other hand):
Father (in Jesus' name) I now take out of my heart and place in my hand, any person who has offended me and hurt me.
I take out of my heart and put in my hand any person who abused, neglected, made fun of, or took advantage of me.
I remove from my heart every person who has lied to, cheated, or stolen from me. I put them in my hands.
I take out of my heart and put in my hands all injustice, hurt, anger, helplessness hopelessness, shame, guilt, and all the people who were used to provoke those events and emotions in me, including myself, and my blaming God for these things.
Lord, I am not the Judge. You are the only true and righteous Judge.
I offer up to you all these people, all the events, all the emotions.
I release them to You. (cup both hands, lift them up to heaven, then spread to release).
I command any bad/evil spirits involved in these events to leave every part of my being,
go answer to the finished work on the cross and/or where Jesus sends them.
(Place both hands on heart)
Heavenly Father (in Jesus' name) I ask You to fill my heart with Your love and Holy Spirit.
Thank you, Jesus, for Your blood that was shed to set me free.
I give every part of my being to you in full surrender.
Amen.

9 Deadly Embraces - Part 1 - #3 http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-6480774640353028081# - 9 Deadly Embraces - Part 4 -

Wood, George O - WHEN LIFE'S NOT FAIR
How do you handle an injustice?  Recently I was talking with a person who had given years of dedicated service to her local church and had suddenly been removed from her position. The hurt was obvious and deep as she shared with me how unfairly she felt she had been treated.  The advice I gave her is the same I give to myself when I feel another has done wrong to me.
WHAT HAPPENS *IN ME* IS MORE IMPORTANT THAT WHAT HAPPENS *TO ME*.
There are many things which happen to us in life that we do not like.  But we are really powerless most of the time, to change our external circumstances.  We cannot rearrange someone else's behavior toward us, nor can we undo moments which have brought us harm.  If we keep reliving the untoward event, and devoting endless hours in "appealing the verdict," we will be left spent at the end of the day.  Our best recourse is to ask the Lord to change our inner life.
Joseph knew that truth. Rather than rail against his brothers for their unjust treatment of him he decided to concentrate his energies on being the best person for God he could be in the circumstances he was in.  Over the process of a lifetime, he was able to live out the indelible truth regarding unjust treatment from another: "Ye meant it for evil, but God meant if for good" (Genesis 45)
OUR REACTION to the UNKINDNESS of OTHERS REVEALS THE DEPTH of OUR OWN WALK WITH GOD.
Suppose you held a glass of liquid as you walked toward me, and I carelessly or deliberately reached out and bumped you.  Whatever you carried inside the glass would spill out.  That is the way our lives are.  When we are bumped whatever is inside comes out.  That is why being filled with the Spirit on a continual basis is so important.  The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self control.  Bump that kind of person, and you will get the personality of Jesus.  In my present capacity I am called upon to assist congregations in resolving disputes. 
We call such conflicts "church trouble."  I have found it impossible to see such conflicts healed when people are waiting for someone else to change.  Most of the important changes that need to be made in our world lie within ourselves.
Jesus said that out of the heart come the issues of life.  When I find a "saint" who is unkind, critical, or trying to "straighten out the church or pastor," I know I am ministering to someone who has been bumped: and what they are spilling out is the content of a life lacking the Spirit's presence.  The Holy Spirit is not filled with hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissension, faction or envy.
The LORD HAS GIVEN US CLEAR DIRECTION on HOW WE ARE to RESPOND to the PERSON WHO HAS INJURED US.
Our human reaction is to retaliate, blame, and feel self-pity. All these emotions while understandable, lead us down dead-end streets.  In yielding to them we permit ourselves to become victims rather than victors.
A fascination passage from Jude says, "Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee". (Jude 9)   We may not know much about the mystery of the dispute over the body, but we can see the plain spiritual applications:
Don't become like the devil when you are fighting the devil.  Michael did not slander the prince of all slanderers.
Jesus plainly told us how to respond to bad treatment from another person: We are to love that one.
ACTIONS LEAD, FEELINGS FOLLOW.
Love does not necessarily mean our feelings will be positive: in fact, Christian love means feelings follow actions.  Jesus does not say: "Have good feelings toward the other person."  Instead He exhorts us to action - "Do Good!"
Here are questions from the Lord's teaching in the Sermon on the Mount. 
(Matt 5:38-48, 6:12)  We must ask ourselves when we are treated unfairly:
Am I returning good for evil?  Jesus tells us to turn the other cheek and walk the 2nd mile.
Am I praying for my adversary?  Jesus tells us we are to treat our opponent in the same way God himself responds to the just and the unjust - He blessed both with rain and sun.
Am I blessing rather than cursing the one who  hurt me?  The underlying word for "Bless" literally means "to speak well of."  When someone else has injured our hearts, we can think of a lot of mean and unkind things to say.  But that is a form of cursing - a diminishment of the other person's character.  Watch your tongue and say good things.
"FATHER, FORGIVE THEM."
Am I forgiving the other person of the debt or transgression against me? 
A wise person defined forgiveness as the odor flowers give when they are trampled on.
People are going to take advantage of us - they did to Jesus.  But His opening word from the cross was not one of vengeance, nor did He seek to get even.  He prayed, "Father, forgive them" (Luke 23:34).
How are you responding to unfair treatment?  Mrs. Charles Cowman said it well"
"The opposing force becomes a lifting force if faced at the right angle. 
The same wind that uproots a tree lifts a bird."
Our ability to rise above the hurt will depend on whether or not we are willing to let the Lord alter us rather than expecting the other person to change.  And His way of altering us is to bring us to an alter of commitment where we say: "Lord, Your will be done in my life. Give me the strength to do what You ask of me."   
WHY do the above? Click onto Healing Offenses
Additionally, let us make a word picture. 
Our flesh/self is like a puppy wanting lots of love/affection/attention/patting/hugging/caressing/time. 
Scripture tells us that our self/flesh/"puppy" needs to DIE. 
Satan (the lier + contradictor) tells us that flesh/self needs to live,
for demons (who are spirits) manifest/gain power when we meet the selfish NEEDS of the flesh (self-pity/self-absorption). 
If the flesh/self/"puppy" is DEAD, then it does not (make demands) need to be defended/protected/soothed/comforted.
If the flesh is DEAD, it does NOT say ouch when hurt. 
It does NOT react to humiliation/neglect/offense/unforgiveness.
If the self/human nature is dead, then we have a vacancy. 
This vacancy needs to be filled with the Holy Spirit/God's nature. 
Holy Spirit, we invite You to come dwell in us permanently, to unite with our human spirit,
and to permanently evict and prohibit all evil spirits from us,
in Jesus name we pray and thank You.
May Your nature permanently replace our human nature and all evil nature. 
Grow Your spiritual roots so deep in us, producing so much prized holy behavior,
that many will be attracted to YOU.
In Jesus name, we thank, praise, bless and love You. Amen.
We or Jesus allow demons/negative circumstances/hurtful situations to crop up in our gardens like dandelion weeds because we have yet to learn - to NOT to react negatively,
to NOT be offended, to bless and pray for those who offend.  Dandelion and other pesty weeds can be de-headed, but if the roots are not eradicated or if the seeds blow away, we will have to contend another day with the same issues reappearing in the same or another location.
Father God, forgive me for allowing HURT to wound me and poison others as I spewed out negativity.  Please use your weed killer to exterminate each type of hurt/harm that has come against me and my family.  I repent of hatred, self-pity, anger, hate, revenge, hurt, retaliation, bitterness, low self worth, low self esteem, depression, isolation, failure to pray for the offender, lack of forgiveness, pain, thoughts of murder, and __________________________ . 
In the name of Jesus, I bind the hurtful issues of ____________ in this situation
and loose Your blessings into this situation.
I place these situations under Your blood.
I NOW forgive ___________ & __________   for all hurtful intentions & deeds including ________  & _________ 
I genuinely ask You to bless ___________ and to bless ____________ mightily,
especially in the areas for which You designed ____________ & ___________.
In Jesus name I pray & praise You.
These thorns that are needling me are blessings in disguise, prodding me on to become dead to me and alive to You.  I am beginning to get the message, Father God. 
These things which I notice hurting me so much are really those same things which I so often do which hurt You.  If I were not so readily wounded, I would not recognize/appreciate Your bleeding heart.  Thanks for waking me up to the times when I have rejected Your presence.  Each morning and each evening You wait for us to run into Your arms with a hello and a hug and a smile, but Your arms and heart remain empty/abandoned/lonesome.  So when my parents, brothers, sisters, kids, mate, date, friends, relatives or business associates stupidly reject me, it helps me appreciate Your rejection in Your generation and each successive generation.  It helps to remind me that you are still waiting for Your daily hug from me and each of us.  Forgive us.  How stupid Your kids are.  How self-absorbed. 
I will be glad when this self part of us is, at least the wrong aspect of it, is demolished, leaving only room for You to express Yourself in us, to be our eye glasses and our heart, just for beginners.  Amen.

“Let’s look up to Heaven and say: ’Father. I repent for any ungodly, unkind, judgmental, gossiping, backbiting, hateful, hurtful, wasteful, words I’ve ever spoken. Please wipe them from my record. Act like I never said them. I will not receive a (bad) harvest from those (bad) words. Father, even if my flesh (heart) doesn’t feel like it, as an act of my sovereign will,
I choose to forgive anyone
who has spoken against me, slandered me, cursed me, lied about me. Please forgive them. Don’t even write it down. Act like they never said it. Father, right now, I break the power of the enemy in my: life, home, relationships, body, finances, and destiny. I am free in Jesus’ name. Amen.”

Sin at Conception

Maria de Lange, Susanna Francina - http://stclements.edu/grad/gradsusanna.pdf -Chapter 4: Iniquity, the Root of all Evil, the Seat of the Great Prostitute -  5. CONCLUSION - Iniquity impregnates the spirit of the human being at the moment of conception and operates as a spiritual umbilical cord to produce an axiom of all personal sin as well as bloodline curses and generational sin. Iniquity forms part of the depraved nature of man-kind, which is situated within man's spirit – even after regeneration (salvation/being born again, especially strong prior to Holy Spirit baptism &/or when there is lack of Spiritual discernment regarding the demonic nature of iniquity).  This evil corrupt force springs from man’s spirit and shapes his soul, which in itself serves the law of sin and death resulting in spiritual prisons of parts of the human soul and spirit.  Iniquity is a heart condition. From birth, iniquity began to influence and corrupt the human soul and through it, the person’s behavior: (1) his heart through reasoning,  (2) his emotions through a disturbed self-concept created by ungodly circumstances and (3) his will through deceitful lies about God, himself and his fellow men. 

Imputing of: sin+
righteousness

Wommack, Andrew - The True Nature of God Week 4 1/19/2015 + Week 5 1/26/2015 @ http://www.awmi.net/tv/2015 @ http://www.awmi.net/tv recommended - 2,000 years before Mosaic law was given, there was NO imputation of sin outlawed in Old Testament Law.  Messiah is a high priest in the line of Melchizedek, rather than in the bloodline/hierarchy of the Jewish Levitical rabbis.

Iniquity

Maria de Lange, Susanna Francina - http://stclements.edu/grad/gradsusanna.pdf - Chapter 4: Iniquity, the Root of all Evil, the Seat of the Great Prostitute - 4.3.2.7 SPIRITUAL DNA - Spiritual DNA (Spiritual genetics - Inheritance): "Just as the material body stores genetic information in the Chromosomes of the cell, called the DNA, the same is found in the 'spiritual' body where all the information of Iniquity is stored on spiritual genetic/DNA level." (This demonic genetic download seems to be imparted at conception, via inheritance of curses - problems originating from un-forgiven sins/iniquity.)
4.3.4 THE DWELLINGS OF INIQUITY -
"Dr (Ana) Méndez-Ferrell testifies to 3 different types of iniquity: (1) Voluntary iniquity is the practice of evil. (2) Conscious iniquity implies conscious evil in action, producing an inner struggle. (3) Unconscious iniquity involves sin that comes from our past generations, which latent in our spiritual
and genetic inheritance.  Such iniquities will eventually be activated through personal sin and is seen in problems in the soul as well as in the body of a person. Unconscious iniquities (bloodline curses/generational sin) can be the cause of many problems, illnesses or disasters in a person’s life
.
84
After 'the fall', the soul of man (in each successive generation, more and more) remained immersed in darkness and confusion. The only voice, which he could hear (clearly), was the devil's. This spiritual habitation becomes the basis of all information of the soul.  Satan and his followers’ aim are to establish EVIL structures in the soul (mind/emotions) of people that would imprison them (cloud their reasoning and confuse their emotions). The Bible calls such dwellings, 'structures of wickedness'85 or 'dwellings of iniquity'.86  Some of the main methods that Satan is using, comprise: (1) control, (2) dominance and (3) influence."

Taking Jesus Backwards into Our Past

Eldridge, John - http://ransomedheart.com/blogs/john/healing-past - "I found myself asking his (aging dad in a nursing home) forgiveness for the sins of my youth (Psalm 25:7).  The cleansing of that felt very important for my life and freedom, now in the present.  (So many of these things retain a kind of hold on us, decades later.) At other moments I found myself inviting Jesus into an old relationship.  I found there was His love re-writing my past, coming into it. But most of all, I found myself expressing gratitude...
It is a powerful thing to redeem the past, bring it under the rule of Jesus.  Invite Him to fill it. I think this is why He will bring it up in the present through some reminder of days gone by. When He (Holy Spirit) does, invite Jesus into it, give it to Him.  Let Him heal, affirm, cleanse, redeem or return to you some gift of life He gave, but you lost over time."  (Some individuals such as Katie Souza place Jesus' blood, cross and resurrection power on soul wound/trauma and/or between past and present root issue.)

PRAY for the REPENTANCE of Ancestral Sins
http://www.walkinginpower.org/books/spiritual_warfare_prayers.pdf  

"Ancestral sin can be an important open door to persisting sin in a family line. It usually affects the believer or unbeliever through what is called a 'generations curse'...Recognize...that man is instructed by God to receive either the blessing or the curse (Deuteronomy 30:19). When a person goes after sin, there is a curse attached to the sin. It is like buying a box of Cracker Jacks. You get the prize that goes along with it, whether you want it or not. Father God has purposely done this so that sin will be a deterrent to man. The scripture says that the curse goes down 4 generations, which is why it is called a generations curse (Ex.20: 5). The problem is, that if a person 3 to 4 generations down the line commits the same sin, then the curse will continue down another 3 to 4 generations. Before a generations curse can be broken, ancestral sin has to be dealt with. This is also an important thing that needs to be dealt with in the lives of adopted children who do not know their ancestral histories on either side of their families. It is (preferable but) not (necessarily) important to know WHAT the ancestral sin was, God knows. All He asks is to acknowledge it, repent of it, and ask forgiveness for all whom they may have hurt. (The Holy Spirit can reveal any root issue, if God deems it necessary in a specific curse eradiation.)
(One may) Pray something like this:
'Lord Jesus Christ, I confess to you all the sins of my ancestors and predecessors, (each adopted child's ancestors and predecessors,) and my spouse’s ancestors and predecessors, on all sides of all of our families, back to our families’ origins. I repent, on their behalf, for all of their sins that caused the problem or generations curse or curses of (name them) to come into our family lines. In particular, I repent of all of their past sexual sins, of all sins of witchcraft or idolatry, and confess them to You, repent for them, and renounce them before You, right now, Lord Jesus Christ. I repent for all whom they may have hurt by their past actions and sins, and ask Your forgiveness for all of their past harm to others. I bless them to 1,000 generations. I ask all these things of You, Lord Jesus Christ, in Your Holy Name.'"

                        
                                                  PRAYER to Break                          Generational Curses & ALL EFFECTS of ANCESTRAL SIN from a PERSON

           http://www.walkinginpower.org/books/spiritual_warfare_prayers.pdf  

"Lord Jesus Christ, having confessed and repented of all sins of our ancestors and predecessors on all sides of all of our families, back to our families’ origins, I break all ties, bonds, cords, and soul ties with all of their sins and the consequences of their sins, and break off all inherited generational curses; the curse(s) of (name it/them);
hexes, vexes, bewitchments or spells, all in Your Name. Lord Jesus Christ.
I ask You to cleanse my family members and me (or name the individual and family) of our past histories and of all defilement, in Your Name, Lord Jesus Christ, Amen.
I believe, receive, and decree this (or these) generational curse(s) broken, in Your Name (and replace with opposite holy virtues and blessings) Lord Jesus Christ, for Your Word says that everyone who believes is free from all things (Acts 13:39)."

"Do you wake up with a dark cloud overhead...have feelings of guilt and immediately begin by replaying your failures...Then rise up in the morning and say to the devil, 'This is the first day of the rest of my life.  I'm leaving behind those things in the past - all my past failures and sins - and I'm pressing on...Today (and thereafter) is the day of the Lord's salvation."

Forgiveness Web Sites

Brian Adams - transcript - 2/28-3/6/2011 - "The Spirit of God spoke to me so gentle and just so quietly. He said, 'Faith moves Me, son, but forgiveness releases My power'...
He took me to some scriptures that talked about where people refused to forgive they would have tormenting spirits released against them, and then I knew, a scripture came to me, and I heard this in my spirit, that fear has torment. All of a sudden, I started thinking, fear, now that's phobias. That's anxiety attacks, different things that a lot of times doctors can't heal, and these were tormentings. I began to put, asking the people to pray and release people, forgive them, and just make a conscious decision.  Prayer is actually what I call it. They would pray these prayers. We would see them free from anxiety, from phobias, from fibromyalgia, just different things from mental to physical, to even soul issues."
A battered woman was led in prayer.  "I choose to forgive my husband for putting me in the hospital. I command you to come out in the name of Jesus. Faith moves God, but forgiveness releases His power. We were taught in 1 John 4:18 that in love there is no fear. Torment does not exist, but God's complete and perfect love expels every trace of terror."
"In my life personally, Sid, I remember the scripture as when God gave me this revelation: Faith moves God, but forgiveness releases His power. One of the scriptures that always stays in my heart is, 'You must 1st have brought your own self to obedience before you can bring others'...
I'd always learned that Christ had died for us and that the healing power of God was available for us. So I started saying, I don't think God wants me to get sick, get healed, get sick, get healed. He wants me to walk in Divine health. So using the Word and quoting the Scripture, I just began to do this. But now it was a fight and a battle. But once I got this revelation, it's just almost like you become like Teflon where sickness is repelled and it can't stick to you because now you're walking one with the Father in Heaven, because when He looked out on the planet and He saw it was a mess after Adam sinned, He said, how am I gonna fix this? He said, I'm going to release forgiveness, which begins to take care of the problem."

Graham, Ruth – Forgiving My Father, Forgiving Myself @ https://lifetoday.org/video/forgiveness-11/ - good -
Transcript @ https://lifetoday.org/assets/files/11-06-19e-Ruth-Graham.pdf (edited)
Ruth: It did because I had always looked at forgiveness as a way to get healthy emotionally. I thought that it was...a gift we give ourselves. It's a letting go. At that point, I realized that forgiveness was so much more than that...
Look at the crucifixion. Jesus knows how unfair it was. He was bloodied beyond recognition, beaten until he was raw, and then nailed to a cross. While he was being nailed to the cross he said, "Father, forgive them. They know not what they do." That was unfair but that is holy sacred territory. That is more than healthy emotional stuff. It is holy. I think that's important for people to realize.
Sheila: You talk about the fact that people will say that time heals wounds but if you don't deal with the wound and you just bury it, you bury it alive.
Ruth: It comes back if you don't deal with it. Sheila, forgiveness is a lifelong process. We can say, "Oh I forgive" and go on but within a couple of months emotions will come roaring back and we think, we really didn't forgive them. We begin to beat ourselves up again. But you know, emotions never tell the truth.
Ruth: So we have to get rid of the emotions. We can feel them, but we don't have to live with them...Forgiveness is a lifelong process that takes time.  I have worked through forgiveness on so many different levels.  I found that when we forgive, that's the doorway by which the Holy Spirit can enter that decision and enable us to truly forgive. It may not happen overnight. Forgiveness may take a lifetime, but it will happen (with Holy Spirit's help).
Sheila: How can you tell when you have actually forgiven someone? Are there kind of internal signals that will let you know that you actually have forgiven?
Ruth: Well, it's maybe easier for me to tell you how we can tell how we have NOT forgiven. When we see the person who has wronged us, that's the 1st thing we think of. Or when their name comes up, we want to (gossip/tattle) tell people what (bad/evil) happened. Where/when we can't get rid of what they've done to us, that's a sign that we haven't forgiven. I think when we have forgiven, then we're able to be around that person, we're able to talk with that person, we're able to bless those people, and pray a blessing on them. If we're not able to do those things, then we need to go back to the cross and say, okay, Jesus (I repent.  I am willing to be willing).
Ruth: We don't forget what happened. My husband was unfaithful for a number of years and our marriage ended in divorce. I haven't forgotten that...After his death something else wrong happened to me. I was weeping and asking the Lord to forgive me. I said, "Lord, please go back to Ted and tell him that I ask his forgiveness."  I know that's not theologically right.
Ruth: Forgiveness is unconditional. Reconciliation is conditioned on the changed behavior of the one who has done the wounding. If you're the one wounded, you're the one that knows the change. You can't rely on someone saying, "Oh he's changed. Oh he's changed." Or he can't come and say, "Oh I've changed. You've got to know that and sense that in your bones.  Plus with counseling and a pastor's help, then if you want to try to reconcile, take it very slowly, very carefully.
Ruth:  I'm NOT telling my siblings' stuff. I'm NOT telling my mother's or my father's stuff. I'm telling my stuff. This is not a tell-all book. But I find that when I tell my stuff and make myself vulnerable, that's when (God's) ministry takes place.
Sheila: I have a chapter in a book on celebrating your scars as tattoos of triumph. What do you mean by making your wounds sacred?
Ruth: We say, God, I don't like this. I'm hurting like mad...I remember after my divorce from Ted I was so wounded and so hurt. I was acting out.  Everything was a mess. I had a rebound marriage that was just a mess. I remember saying to God, if You can ever use this mess for Your glory You are welcome to it. Never dreaming He would. But he has. After I wrote In Every Pew Sits a Broken Heart it had such an impact and people related to me in a different way.

Bob Jones had a nervous breakdown resulting in a prognosis of permanent disability, SSI and VA benefits.  His Christian doctor helped him reduce his medication.  God did the rest.  The key was his obedience in forgiving ALL who had mistreated him.    www.bobjones.org/bio_bob.htm  

Jones, Jim and Phyllis - The 5th Column  http://www.jesus-is-lord.com/5column.htm - (from website that does not believe in the Trinity of God) - A (demonic and/or) secular approach is to blur or eradicate the lines between good/moral/ethical and bad/immoral/sin/evil in education/church/law/medicine. - "Psychiatrist J.R. Rees was involved in training school teachers as well as British and American military intelligence in psychiatric techniques at the Tavistock Clinic in 1934.
Mr. Rees stated, 'If we are to infiltrate the professional and social activities of other people, I think we must imitate the totalitarians and organize some kind of 5th column activity'...
'We have made a useful attack upon a number of professions. The 2 easiest of them naturally are the teaching profession and the church, the 2 most difficult are law and medicine.  Let us not speak in terms of 'mental hygiene' but in terms of 'mental health'...
Let us all therefore very secretly be 5th columnists.' (1)
Brock Chisholm, another psychiatrist and friend of J.R. Rees, was a founding member of World Federation for Mental Health. He had called for the reinterpretation and eventually the eradication of the concept of right and wrong."

Father, I plead the blood of Jesus Christ over the accuser of the brethren who is trying to accuse other believers in my heart.
I refuse to participate.
I ask You Holy Spirit to reveal to me any false information, presumptions, suspicions, or accusations about other people, or about myself.
I ask Your forgiveness Father for any such wrongs I have harbored (festered/incubated) in my heart.
I ask You Holy Spirit to cleanse my heart, and to heal (exterminate) it from such wrongs in the past, and to guard my heart from receiving any such false accusations in the future.

Thanks.  Amen."  Once we have asked for and receive by faith, we need to enforce what He did 2,000 years ago, not continually ask for what we already have.  Jesus I now enforce.)

Joyce shares that each person we fail to forgive is like a rotten potato that we carry around with us daily.  Forgiveness may free another, but it frees us more.  In the case of abuse/danger, forgiveness does not require reestablishment of relationship. Joyce also insists that we need to "release" the other individual from our judgment/revenge/anger or need to oblige us by apologizing or making amends.  We release them into God's hands.  He best is able to deal with them.  Additionally we are to pray for God to bless them.

Bombs had fallen upon the city on the night of September 11 in 1944, the city became a sea of flames, and in 18 minutes it was almost completely demolished, reduced to a mass of rubble. Young girls throughout Germany had been meeting for Bible studies for several years throughout Germany, against the will of the Nazis. These women not only miraculously escaped the bombing of Darmstadt, but they continued calling the nation to repentance, especially for the atrocities suffered by the Jewish people under the 3rd Reich. Out of this group and these leaders was born a Sisterhood...living completely by faith and committed to prayer...in Darmstadt, Phoenix, Jerusalem, and Canada. They do missionary work among the poor, perform religious plays, and run retreat houses."

And he considered this was spoken of all commandments in common, and that not on wrath alone, but not on any other sin of ours, ought the sun to go down. For it was good and needful that neither the sun should condemn us for an evil by day nor the moon for a sin by night, or even for an evil thought. That this state may l be preserved in us it is good to hear the apostle and keep his words, for he says, 'Try your own selves and prove your own selves [4].' Daily, therefore, let each one take from himself the tale of his actions both by day and night; and if he have sinned, let him cease from it; while if he have not, let him not be boastful. But let him abide in that which is good, without being negligent, nor condemning his neighbors, nor justifying himself, 'until the Lord come who searcheth out hidden things [5],' as saith the blessed apostle Paul. For often unawares we do things that we know not of but the Lord seeth all things. Wherefore committing the judgment to Him, let us have sympathy one with another. Let us bear each other's burdens [6]: but let us examine our own selves and hasten to fill up that in which we are lacking. As a safe-guard against sin let the following be observed. Let us each one note and write down our actions and the impulses of our soul as though we were going to relate them to each other. Be assured that if we should be utterly ashamed to have them known, we shall abstain from sin and harbour no base thoughts in our mind. For who wishes to be seen while sinning? or who will not rather lie after the commission of a sin, through the wish to escape notice? As then while we are looking at one another, we would not commit carnal sin, so if we record our thoughts as though about to tell them to one another, we shall the more easily keep ourselves free from vile thoughts through shame lest they should be known. Wherefore let that which is written be to us in place of the eyes of our fellow hermits, that blushing as much to write as if we had been caught, we may never think of what is unseemly. Thus fashioning ourselves we shall be able to keep the body in subjection, to please the Lord, and to trample on the devices of the enemy."

Repentance

Rosh Hashanah (Feast of Trumpets, a Jewish holiday) http://www.kolel.org/pages/holidays/RoshHashanah_intro.html
"A...beautiful custom of Rosh Hashanah is Tashlich (casting off). On Rosh Hashanah afternoon, Jews gather around a body of flowing water, such as a river or lake, and empty our pockets into the river, symbolically casting off our sins. At the waterside, Tehillim (Psalms) are recited as well as the words of...Micah...(below), and then bread crumbs, previously installed in one's pocket as surrogate sins, are shaken out into the water to demonstrate our desire to be rid of our sins. This practice is inspired by the words of the Prophet...who wrote:
'Who, O God, is like You? You forgive sins and overlook transgressions for the survivors of Your people;
He does (You do) not retain His (Your) anger forever, for He loves (You love) kindness;
He (You) will return and show us mercy, and overcome our sins.
You will cast into the depths of the sea all their sins;
You will show kindness to Jacob and mercy to Abraham,
As You did promise to our fathers of old.' (
Micah 7:18-20)
Of course, Teshuvah (ridding ourselves of sin and seeking forgiveness) is the main theme of this season. Therefore, it is also common on Rosh Hashanah to seek out people you may have wronged during the past year and ask them for forgiveness. The Talmud maintains that the Days of Repentance atone only for sins between man and God.
To atone for sins against another person, you must 1st seek reconciliation with that person, righting the wrongs you committed against them if possible."

Scapegoat - http://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/jsource/judaica/ejud_0002_0005_0_05094.html -
"AZAZEL (ʿAzʾazel) occurs in the ritual for the *Day of Atonement (Lev. 16:8, 10, 26).
Aaron casts lots over 2 goats, and the one "for ʿAzʾazel" is presented alive before the Lord, and then released into the wilderness. The ancient Greek and Latin versions understood ʿAzʾazel as 'goat that departs,' hence 'the scapegoat' of some English versions [revealing Yeshua as our scapegoat, Who took our (confessed/absolved) sins and our punishment, allowing us to go free]. Most of the rabbinic commentators and some moderns take Azazel as the name of the place to which the goat is driven. The great majority of moderns regard Azazel as the personal name of a demon thought to live in the wilderness."7.17.2013

Yom Kuppur (day of Atonement) 10 days after Rosh Hashanah (Feast of Trumpets) is annual group repentance/ confession, receiving erasing/abolition/absolvement/forgiveness of all past sins, and solicitation of protection from committing future sins in upcoming year.

God's forgiveness & man's accountability
depends on our believing and exercising God's full gospel

Disturbing Prophetic Dream: 'I Saw Many Ministers and Prophets in Hell' Matthew 7:22-24 - Many will say to Me on that day, 'Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonderful works in Your name?'  But then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you. Depart from Me, you who practice evil.. "I woke up from the dream alarmed and startled. I said to the Holy Spirit, Because those who worked miracles, prophesied and cast out demons never preached the full gospel of Jesus Christ, which is the message of repentance. They were so in love with the gifts I had given them that people became trophies and souvenirs to them. When My power would manifest in their ministries, they would tell people that I loved them, but never that they needed to repent for their sins. I tell you that a great deception will sweep over the signs and wonders movement in the earth. Beware of the ministries where miracles and prophecies will flow, but the message of repentance is a no-go. You have been warned.

 depends on dispensation in which one dwells

Real and False Guilt

Judas was guilty and did NOT repent, choosing rather to punish himself, whereas when we go to confession and take communion, we do repent.  God through His Son gives us forgiveness, but we need to take/receive it and also forgive self.  We do NOT need to rehash the sin nor repent again for it, as/when it is covered by the blood of Jesus.

Premature Death

Scripture

1+Corinthians+11&version=KJV (edited)

25 After Jesus took the cup, saying, this cup is the new testament in My blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of Me.

26 For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord's death till he come.

27 Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord.

28 But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup.

29 For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord's body.

30 For this cause many are weak, sickly among you, and sleep (die prematurely).
