Spirit of forgiveness:
"if the same Spirit that rose Jesus Christ from the dead is living inside you, that same Spirit will give life to your perishable body(character/
attitude/lifestyle)" (Romans 8:11)
Filled with this Same Spirit He declared
"Father, forgive them for they know not what they do" (Luke 23:34)
"...Untie him/her and let him/her go" (John 11:44)
As Christians we have received the grace and Holy Spirit of forgiveness...
You/I need to *believe*, we have the grace to *forgive no matter the depth* then the Holy Spirit will manifest it inside us and towards our offenders...
Hence let us forgive *ourselves* and those *who have hurt/offended us deeply even beyond words in our lives/hearts
and we shall set *ourselves free* from the burden of unforgiveness.
Great Grace Brethren!!!

And now I commend you to God [placing you in His protective, loving care] and [I commend you] to the word of His grace [the counsel and promises of His unmerited favor]. His grace is able to build you up and to give you the [rightful] inheritance among all those who are sanctified [that is, among those who are set apart for God’s purpose—all believers] in Christ Jesus. Amen. {Acts 20:32 amp}

Receive Grace to study, understand, believe and willingly obey the word of God according to Jesus Christ teachings with effortless ease today 7th May, 2019 and everyday of your life on earth under the Holy Spirit influence in Jesus Mighty Name. Amen.

Jesus Comforts His Disciples
1 “Do not let your heart be troubled (afraid, cowardly). Believe [confidently] in God and trust in Him, [have faith, hold on to it, rely on it, keep going and] believe also in Me. 2 In My Father’s house are many dwelling places. If it were not so, I would have told you, because I am going there to prepare a place for you. 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back again and I will take you to Myself, so that where I am you may be also. 4 And [to the place] where I am going, you know the way.” 5 Thomas said to Him, “Lord, we do not know where You are going; so how can we know the way?” 6 Jesus said to him, “I am the [only] Way [to God] and the [real] Truth and the [real] Life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.

Jesus’ Oneness with the Father
7 If you had [really] known Me, you would also have known My Father. From now on you know Him, and have seen Him.”

8 Philip said to Him, “Lord, show us the Father and then we will be satisfied.” 9 Jesus said to him, “Have I been with you for so long a time, and you do not know Me yet, Philip, nor recognize clearly who I am? Anyone who has seen Me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father?’ 10 Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father is in Me? The words I say to you I do not say on My own initiative or authority, but the Father, abiding continually in Me, does His works [His attesting miracles and acts of power]. 11 Believe Me that I am in the Father and the Father is in Me; otherwise believe [Me] because of the [very] works themselves [which you have witnessed]. 12 I assure you and most solemnly say to you, anyone who believes in Me [as Savior] will also do the things that I do; and he will do even greater things than these [in extent and outreach], because I am going to the Father. 13 And I will do whatever you ask in My name [as My representative], this I will do, so that the Father may be glorified and celebrated in the Son. 14 If you ask Me anything in My name [as My representative], I will do it.

15 “If you [really] love Me, you will keep and obey My commandments.

Role of the Spirit
16 And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Helper (Comforter, Advocate, Intercessor—Counselor, Strengthener, Standby), to be with you forever— 17 the Spirit of Truth, whom the world cannot receive [and take to its heart] because it does not see Him or know Him, but you know Him because He (the Holy Spirit) remains with you continually and will be in you.

18 “I will not leave you as orphans [comfortless, bereaved, and helpless]; I will come [back] to you. 19 After a little while the world will no longer see Me, but you will see Me; because I live, you will live also. 20 On that day [when that time comes] you will know for yourselves that I am in My Father, and you are in Me, and I am in you. 21 The person who has My commandments and keeps them is the one who [really] loves Me; and whoever [really] loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and reveal Myself to him [I will make Myself real to him].” 22 Judas (not Iscariot) asked Him, “Lord, what has happened that You are going to reveal Yourself to us and not to the world?” 23 Jesus answered, “If anyone [really] loves Me, he will keep My word (teaching); and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our dwelling place with him. 24 One who does not [really] love Me does not keep My words. And the word (teaching) which you hear is not Mine, but is the Father’s who sent Me.

25 “I have told you these things while I am still with you. 26 But the Helper (Comforter, Advocate, Intercessor—Counselor, Strengthener, Standby), the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name [in My place, to represent Me and act on My behalf], He will teach you all things. And He will help you remember everything that I have told you. 27 Peace I leave with you; My [perfect] peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be afraid. [Let My perfect peace calm you in every circumstance and give you courage and strength for every challenge.] 28 You heard Me tell you, ‘I am going away, and I am coming back to you.’ If you [really] loved Me, you would have rejoiced, because I am going [back] to the Father, for the Father is greater than I. 29 I have told you now before it happens, so that when it does take place, you may believe and have faith [in Me]. 30 I will not speak with you much longer, for the ruler of the world (Satan) is coming. And he has no claim on Me [no power over Me nor anything that he can use against Me]; 31 but so that the world may know [without any doubt] that I love the Father, I do exactly as the Father has commanded Me [and act in full agreement with Him]. Get up, let us go from here.

But mercy has prevailed over the judgment/punishment our sins deserve (James 2:13)
You/I need to *believe* that *God's mercy* has overcome any sin you/I have committed hence we begin to thank HIM who died on Calvary to *overcome all sin and its consequences* in the human flesh.
Another application of this Scriptural passage is that we *must believe* that God's mercy active inside us has *overcome any/all type of sins our fellow human being committed against us* hence we willingly *forgive and never remind them of such past* by the power of the Holy Spirit *working inside us* without waiting for them to ask us to forgive them thus "Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful" (Luke 6:36)

Whatever you are doing on this earth that is *holy, righteous, excellent, true, lovely, of good repute, praise-worthy, brings peace, honorable, wholesome, worthy of respect e.t.c*

always muster the courage to convince yourself beyond human sympathy and encouragement that God{Jesus Christ} is guiding your steps

thus "the Lord guides the steps of his righteous"

{Psalm 1:6}



and *you must believe* that it is *only God* who knows the *good plans* he has in view for your life {Jeremiah 29:11}



Do not *move ahead of the Holy Spirit leading* no matter the pressure from friends/family/peers/biz-associates/motivational-speakers e.t.c else you will inflict pains/regrets upon yourself thus "It is not by power of might but by my Spirit, says the Lord" {Zech.4:6}



There is a pre-arranged path/plan for each person in Christ Jesus {Ephesians 2:10} made available through GRACE {Titus 2:11-12, Heb.4:16}

Great Grace Brethren!!!
Re: The Christian Chatbox ( sticky) by ochibuogwu5: 4:31pm On May 08
Finally, believers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable and worthy of respect, whatever is right and confirmed by God’s word, whatever is pure and wholesome, whatever is lovely and brings peace, whatever is admirable and of good repute; if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think continually on these things [center your mind on them, and implant them in your heart]. {Philippians 4:8 amp}

No matter the passage or book you are reading from the *whole bible alone/
privately* or you are studying with someone or group of persons, it must be used to *interprete only the goodnews of Jesus Christ*
thus
"Starting, therefore, with this text of scripture Philip proceeded to explain the Good News of Jesus to him." (Acts. 8:35)
Re: The Christian Chatbox ( sticky) by ochibuogwu5: 7:07am On May 09
Each person on this earth without any exception has been given a very special grace to serve our fellow human being *responsibly on this earth* not as a tyrant/intimidator/
manipulator/selfish-person
thus
Just as each one of you *has received a
special grace* [a spiritual talent, an ability graciously given by God], employ it(grace) in serving one another as [is appropriate for] good stewards of God’s multi-faceted grace [faithfully using the diverse, varied gifts and abilities granted to Christians by God’s unmerited favor]. Whoever speaks [to the congregation], is to do so as one who speaks the oracles (utterances, the very words) of God. Whoever serves [the congregation] is to do so as one who serves by the strength which God [abundantly] supplies, so that in all things God may be glorified [honored and magnified] through Jesus Christ, to whom belongs the glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen."

God raised this Jesus [bodily from the dead], and of that [fact] we are all witnesses.
Therefore having been exalted to the right hand of God, and having received from the Father the promise of the Holy Spirit, He has poured out this [blessing] which you both see and hear...

Therefore let all the house of Israel recognize beyond all doubt that God has made Him both Lord and Christ (Messiah, Anointed)—this Jesus whom you crucified.” (Acts 2:32-33,36 amp)
Re: The Christian Chatbox ( sticky) by ochibuogwu5: 6:54am On May 10
For all of you who were baptized into Christ [into a spiritual union with the Christ, the Anointed] have clothed yourselves with Christ [that is, you have taken on His characteristics and values]. There is [now no distinction in regard to salvation] neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you [who believe] are all one in Christ Jesus [no one can claim a spiritual superiority]." (Gal.3:27-28 amp)
Re: The Christian Chatbox ( sticky) by ochibuogwu5: 6:59am On May 10
You *must remove* the old yeast of sin so that you will be entirely pure. Then you will be like a new batch of dough without any yeast, as indeed I know you actually are. For our Passover Festival is ready, now that Christ, our Passover lamb, has been sacrificed. Let us celebrate our Passover, then, not with bread having the old yeast of sin and wickedness, but with the bread that has no yeast, the bread of purity and truth" (1 Cor.5:7-8 GNT)
Re: The Christian Chatbox ( sticky) by ochibuogwu5: 7:01am On May 10
Although He was a Son [who had never been disobedient to the Father], He learned [active, special] obedience through what He suffered. And having been made perfect [uniquely equipped and prepared as Savior and retaining His integrity amid opposition], He became the source of eternal salvation [an eternal inheritance] to all those who obey Him, being designated by God as High Priest according to the order of
Melchizedek." (Hebrews 5:8-10 amp)

It is *only Christianity* that expresses these *genuine manifestatiins of the Holy Spirit*
Growth in Faith in Jesus Christ
Growth in Holiness no matter the *public re-invention of sin/unbelief* in that generation.
Growth in righteousness and love towards each human being no matter the persecution from human authorities and unbelievers.
Growth in grace(accepting eternal life in Christ Jesus, resisting sin and worldly passions, expressing holiness, righteousness and self-control in this earth/world through the Holy Spirit capabilities inside us).
Hoping against hope that God can raise the dead and even heal any form of spiritual or physical sickness not minding how long it has existed in any human body.
Growth in number of genuine converts/believers.
Growth in building up believers with sound teachings/doctrine/gospel of Jesus Christ.
Genuine Peace dwelling inside each believer and the general assembly of Christians even in the midst of persecutions because of the *eternal assurance of salvation in Christ Jesus* made manifest by the *Holy Spirit consolation/confirmation* within the body of Christ(the Church)

thus

The churches grew and were filled with the consolation of the Holy Spirit:

"The churches throughout Judaea, Galilee and Samaria were now left in peace, building themselves up, living in the fear of the Lord, and filled with the consolation of the Holy Spirit.
Peter visited one place after another and eventually came to the saints living down in Lydda. There he found a man called Aeneas, a paralytic who had been bedridden for eight years. Peter said to him, ‘Aeneas, Jesus Christ cures you: get up and fold up your sleeping mat.’ Aeneas got up immediately; everybody who lived in Lydda and Sharon saw him, and they were all converted to the Lord.
At Jaffa there was a woman disciple called Tabitha, or Dorcas in Greek, who never tired of doing good or giving in charity. But the time came when she got ill and died, and they washed her and laid her out in a room upstairs. Lydda is not far from Jaffa, so when the disciples heard that Peter was there, they sent two men with an urgent message for him, ‘Come and visit us as soon as possible.’
Peter went back with them straightaway, and on his arrival they took him to the upstairs room, where all the widows stood round him in tears, showing him tunics and other clothes Dorcas had made when she was with them. Peter sent them all out of the room and knelt down and prayed. Then he turned to the dead woman and said, ‘Tabitha, stand up.’ She opened her eyes, looked at Peter and sat up. Peter helped her to her feet, then he called in the saints and widows and showed them she was alive. The whole of Jaffa heard about it and many believed in the Lord" (Acts 9:31-42)

Brethren let us appreciate this gift/grace of faith in Christ
let us allow the Holy Spirit to manifest his fruits of love, joy, peace, patience, self-control, faith, gentleness, kindness, trustfulness amongst us as Christians and even to unbelievers.
Pray for grace to grow in this faith expressed through love, hope, persistence and humility.
Pray for grace to study, know, believe, love, and obey Jesus Christ from the *whole Holy bible* with sincerity and undivided attention
Pray for deeper revelations and miracles of God's love in our lives even in this generation
Pray for those who are being persecuted for their faith in Christ Jesus
Pray for the repentance and convertion of unbelievers/persecutors.
let us submit to the Holy Spirit *absolute control* over our spirit, soul and body so that He will use us to encourage the faith of our brethren both in words, character, financial assistance e.t.c.

Abbah My Father, we appreciate you for the gift of grace and faith in Christ Jesus even as we implore for your mercy and grace to open our hearts towards the expression of genuine love within ourselves and open the hearts of more men and women to the LIGHT of the GOSPEL in this generation through the *unlimited move* of your Holy Spirit in Jesus Name. Amen.
Great Grace Brethren!!!

"Now as to the times and dates, brothers and sisters, you have no need for anything to be written to you. 2 For you yourselves know perfectly well that the day of the [return of the] Lord is coming just as a thief [comes unexpectedly and suddenly] in the night. 3 While they are saying, “Peace and safety [all is well and secure!]” then [in a moment unforeseen] destruction will come upon them suddenly like labor pains on a woman with child, and they will absolutely not escape [for there will be no way to escape the judgment of the Lord]. 4 But you, believers, [all you who believe in Christ as Savior and acknowledge Him as God’s Son] are not in spiritual darkness [nor held by its power], that the day [of judgment] would overtake you [by surprise] like a thief; 5 for you are all sons of light and sons of day. We do not belong to the night nor to darkness. 6 So then let us not sleep [in spiritual indifference] as the rest [of the world does], but let us keep wide awake [alert and cautious] and let us be sober [self-controlled, calm, and wise]. 7 For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who are drunk get drunk at night. 8 But since we [believers] belong to the day, let us be sober, having put on the breastplate of faith and love, and as a helmet, the hope and confident assurance of salvation. 9 For God has not destined us to [incur His] wrath [that is, He did not select us to condemn us], but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, 10 who died [willingly] for us, so that whether we are awake (alive) or asleep (dead) [at Christ’s appearing], we will live together with Him [sharing eternal life]. 11 Therefore encourage and comfort one another and build up one another, just as you are doing."

LIVING IN CONSCIOUSNESS OF JESUS CHRIST SECOND COMING:
The Day of the Lord
1 Now as to the times and dates, brothers and sisters, you have no need for anything to be written to you. 2 For you yourselves know perfectly well that the day of the [return of the] Lord is coming just as a thief [comes unexpectedly and suddenly] in the night. 3 While they are saying, “Peace and safety [all is well and secure!]” then [in a moment unforeseen] destruction will come upon them suddenly like labor pains on a woman with child, and they will absolutely not escape [for there will be no way to escape the judgment of the Lord]. 4 But you, believers, [all you who believe in Christ as Savior and acknowledge Him as God’s Son] are not in spiritual darkness [nor held by its power], that the day [of judgment] would overtake you [by surprise] like a thief; 5 for you are all sons of light and sons of day. We do not belong to the night nor to darkness. 6 So then let us not sleep [in spiritual indifference] as the rest [of the world does], but let us keep wide awake [alert and cautious] and let us be sober [self-controlled, calm, and wise]. 7 For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who are drunk get drunk at night. 8 But since we [believers] belong to the day, let us be sober, having put on the breastplate of faith and love, and as a helmet, the hope and confident assurance of salvation. 9 For God has not destined us to [incur His] wrath [that is, He did not select us to condemn us], but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, 10 who died [willingly] for us, so that whether we are awake (alive) or asleep (dead) [at Christ’s appearing], we will live together with Him [sharing eternal life]. 11 Therefore encourage and comfort one another and build up one another, just as you are doing.

Christian Conduct
12 Now we ask you, brothers and sisters, to appreciate those who diligently work among you [recognize, acknowledge, and respect your leaders], who are in charge over you in the Lord and who give you instruction, 13 and [we ask that you appreciate them and] hold them in the highest esteem in love because of their work [on your behalf]. Live in peace with one another. 14 We [earnestly] urge you, believers, admonish those who are out of line [the undisciplined, the unruly, the disorderly], encourage the timid [who lack spiritual courage], help the [spiritually] weak, be very patient with everyone [always controlling your temper]. 15 See that no one repays another with evil for evil, but always seek that which is good for one another and for all people. 16 Rejoice always and delight in your faith; 17 be unceasing and persistent in prayer; 18 in every situation [no matter what the circumstances] be thankful and continually give thanks to God; for this is the will of God for you in Christ Jesus. 19 Do not quench [subdue, or be unresponsive to the working and guidance of] the [Holy] Spirit. 20 Do not scorn or reject gifts of prophecy or prophecies [spoken revelations—words of instruction or exhortation or warning]. 21 But test all things carefully [so you can recognize what is good]. Hold firmly to that which is good. 22 Abstain from every form of evil [withdraw and keep away from it].

23 Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you through and through [that is, separate you from profane and vulgar things, make you pure and whole and undamaged—consecrated to Him—set apart for His purpose]; and may your spirit and soul and body be kept complete and [be found] blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. 24 Faithful and absolutely trustworthy is He who is calling you [to Himself for your salvation], and He will do it [He will fulfill His call by making you holy, guarding you, watching over you, and protecting you as His own].

25 Brothers and sisters, pray for us.

26 Greet all the believers with a holy kiss [as brothers and sisters in God’s family]. 27 I solemnly charge you by the Lord to have this letter read before all the congregation.

28 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you."

"Let this be recorded for the generation to come,
That a people yet to be created will praise the Lord.
19
For He looked down from His holy height [of His sanctuary],
From heaven the Lord gazed on the earth,
20
To hear the sighing of the prisoner,
To set free those who were doomed to death,
21
So that people may declare the name of the Lord in Zion
And His praise in Jerusalem,
22
When the peoples are gathered together,
And the kingdoms, to serve the Lord"
{Psalm 102:18-22 amp}

If you are insulted and reviled for [bearing] the name of Christ, you are blessed [happy, with life-joy and comfort in God’s salvation regardless of your circumstances], because the *Spirit of glory and of God* is resting on you [and indwelling you—He whom they curse, you glorify].
{1 Peter 4:14 amp}
THANK YOU JESUS CHRIST; THE KING OF MY GLORY!!!
