יהוה / Yahweh’s forgiveness versus your own
How to fast and seek the face of Elיהוה / Yahweh
What do you think about; Repentance, Forgiveness, Eternal life, is it from heaven and by heaven, or it’s from man and by man? We His sheep do know that it is only from heaven and by heaven, by our own experienced! Do you?
#1 Here is a good an example of heavenly repentance and forgiveness by our heavenly father the Messiah יהוה / Yahweh / Yahshua.
Read the Bible and see this story;
Peter Denies publicly 3 times > the Messiah יהוה / Yahweh / Yahshua .
Mat 26:69 Now Peter sat without in the palace: and a damsel came unto him, saying, Thou also wast with Yahshua of Galilee.
Mat 26:70 But he denied before them all, saying, I know not what thou sayest.
Mat 26:71 And when he was gone out into the porch, another maid saw him, and said unto them that were there, This fellow was also with Yahshua of Nazareth.
Mat 26:72 And again he denied with an oath, I do not know the man.
Mat 26:73 And after a while came unto him they that stood by, and said to Peter, Surely thou also art one of them; for thy speech bewrayeth thee.
Mat 26:74 Then began he to curse and to swear, saying, I know not the man. And immediately the cock crew.
Mat 26:75 And Peter remembered the word of Yahshua, which said unto him, Before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice. …
After that Peter saw his sins against heaven by denying his father the Messiah יהוה / Yahweh / Yahshua 3 times, then he began to seek a heavenly repentance and heavenly forgiveness from heaven against whom he has sins, by crying/weeping bitterly to the Messiah יהוה / Yahweh / Yahshua .
Read this >>Mat 26:75…… And he went out and wept bitterly.
Now watch how Peter’s heavenly father the Messiah יהוה / Yahweh / Yahshua has responded to his crying. Yahweh / Yahshua Himself descended from heaven and personally face to face 3 times forgave Peter for his 3 times of denials :
Yahshua and Peter.
Joh 21:15 So when they had dined, Yahshua saith to Simon Peter, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me more than these? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my lambs. ( #1st Forgiveness by Yahweh/Yahshua)
Joh 21:16 He saith to him again the second time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my sheep. ( #2nd Forgiveness by Yahweh/Yahshua)
Joh 21:17 He saith unto him the third time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? Peter was grieved because he said unto him the third time, Lovest thou me? And he said unto him, Lord, thou knowest all things; thou knowest that I love thee. Yahshua saith unto him, Feed my sheep. ( #3rd Forgiveness by Yahweh/Yahshua)
Joh 21:18 Verily, verily, I say unto thee, When thou wast young, thou girdedst thyself, and walkedst whither thou wouldest: but when thou shalt be old, thou shalt stretch forth thy hands, and another shall gird thee, and carry thee whither thou wouldest not.
Joh 21:19 This spake he, signifying by what death he should glorify Yahweh. And when he had spoken this, he saith unto him, Follow me.
Therefore the forgiveness from heaven by His heavenly father the Messiah יהוה / Yahweh / Yahshua, caused Peter to love the Messiah יהוה / Yahweh / Yahshua and Peter choose to die for His name by a terrible death.
For Peter was crucified upside down, saying this words, “ I am not worthy to die as He died,… “
Question . Why was Peter not afraid of such a death?
Answer . Amen, Amen, I say unto you, a heavenly forgiveness by Yahweh/ Yahsua shall cause you to love Yahweh/ Yahshua more then your own life and you shall seek to die for His great name’s sake. Amen.
Now Peter in Heaven with His heavenly father the Messiah יהוה / Yahweh / Yahshua !
#2 Here is also a good an example to all of us of self-repentance and self-forgiveness, and let us see his end.
Judas Hangs Himself.
Mat 27:3 Then Judas, which had betrayed him, when he saw that he was condemned, repented himself, and brought again the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders,
Mat 27:4 Saying, I have sinned in that I have betrayed the innocent blood. And they said, What is that to us? see thou to that.
Mat 27:5 And he cast down the pieces of silver in the temple, and departed, and went and hanged himself.
Mat 27:6 And the chief priests took the silver pieces, and said, It is not lawful for to put them into the treasury, because it is the price of blood.
And so Judas did all according to the Bible’s law, by himself and for himself :
#1 He repented himself. For his own conscience condemned him, but he did not seek nor need a heavenly repentance, for
he > repented himself,…( According to the Bible’s law )
#2 He returned the thirty pieces of silver, by himself. ( According to the Bible’s law )
#3 He confessed his sins publicly, by himself saying; “I have betrayed the innocent blood.. ” (According to the Bible’s law )
After all that he did according to the Bible’s law by himself: #1, #2, #3, the guilt of betraying the Messiah Yahweh/Yahshua did not leave him.
So then being in a torment of guilt by his own conscience, knowing that his sins were not forgiven by the Messiah Yahweh /Yahshua , he went and hangs himself.(committed a suicide – self-murder. )
Do you know where is Juda now? We do, many people saw him in a hellfire.
And so, now answer to yourself;
Do you want to die being forgiven by your heavenly father Yahweh as Peter did in #1, and be in Heaven?
Or you repented and forgave yourself as Juda in #2 and will go into hell fire?
Yet, I know this > ”Only the ones whose names are written in the Book of Life will listen and repent !”
