True Repentance

Daily scripture 12/13/2018

Repentance 悔い改め (くいあらため)

悔い改めは福音の第一の原則の一つです(くいあらためはふくえんだいいちのげんそくのふとつです) Repentance is one of the first principles of the gospels.

What is Repentance? “(from the Greek word metanoia) to mean “turning from sin.”” True repentance is to know you are sinning, feeling sorry for it and turning your life over to God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, and start living your life for God and his words.

ACTS 3:19 KJV

“Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord”

What this is saying is if you truly feel sorry for your sins, bad decisions in life, and you know in your heart you shouldn’t be doing it and you Repent for your sins and ask God for forgiveness and start living with Gods word then your life will be transformed.

Where is the first place to look for the Holy Spirit? Inside you, the Holy Spirit is inside your heart. There is a really interesting article written by Billy gram called “does the holy spirit live in you”  Where he talks a lot about this in more detail.

 

God’s people:

Chosen by Jehovah means chosen by God. Jehovah was a word that was used in the old testament. We were all chosen by God and have a calling from God if we choose to listen. We need to Pray, Take action, and let everyone know that God is living and that he will guide your life to amazing things you never thought possible.

Exodus 19:5

 5Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine:

What this if you obey God’s voice and calling on this earth, and keep his covenant meaning keep his agreement he will treasure you more in ways you never thought possible. Everyone on this earth is God’s he is the reason we are here. So learning about God’s word and using it in our everyday lives is very important.

2 Chronicles 7:14

14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

God knows all your wants, wishes, desires even before we do. If you Pray daily, Join a church body,  stop your wicked and sinful ways God will hear you and forgive you and bless you so much more and you will have eternal life.

Deuteronomy 14:2 King James Version (KJV)

For thou art an holy people unto the Lord thy God, and the Lord hath chosen thee to be a peculiar people unto himself, above all the nations that are upon the earth.

Seeking the Lord Jesus Christ

Jesus Christ is amazing more then any of us could even fathom. He is a miracle worker, a savior, and a true messiah. He had a very hard life and made so many sacrifices so we could be saved and be forgiven for our sin. When marry was told by an angel she was going to have a Baby and name him Jesus then (Click here for The Birth of Jesus) went to all the hotels and they were all full and ended up having Jesus in a Manger showed the trust, dedication, and faith she had in God. Jesus has so many miracles that you can learn more about in the book of John (John) Then Jesus ended up being crucified and died on the Cross for our sins.

So it’s very important that Pray in Jesus name and preach about the death of Jesus. That is the key to Repentance and forgiveness for our sins.

Psalm 105:1-11

1 give thanks unto the Lord; call upon his name: make known his deeds among the people.Sing unto him, sing psalms unto him: talk ye of all his wondrous works. Glory ye in his holy name: let the heart of them rejoice that seek the Lord. Seek the Lord, and his strength: seek his face evermore. Remember his marvellous works that he hath done; his wonders, and the judgments of his mouth; O ye seed of Abraham his servant, ye children of Jacob his chosen. He is the Lord our God: his judgments are in all the earth. He hath remembered his covenant for ever, the word which he commanded to a thousand generations. Which covenant he made with Abraham, and his oath unto Isaac; 10 And confirmed the same unto Jacob for a law, and to Israel for an everlasting covenant: 11 Saying, Unto thee will I give the land of Canaan, the lot of your inheritance:

 

Remember there is no right or wrong way to pray. Just Pray from your heart and always pray in Jesus name. There is power in Prayer.

Seek God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit

 Always remember the verse below

Psalms 34:18

The lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.

Nigh Means near or close to.

“Broken spirit means “to be overwhelmed with sorrow.”. Contrite heart means “to be completely penitent, feeling remorse and affected by guilt, deeply regretful and wishing to atone for sin.””.

So, what this is saying is if you have a broken heart, and feel deep  remorse and repent to jesus for your sins you can still be saved if you are alive with a beating heart it’s not to late!

God bless,
