THE ELEMENTS OF REPENTANCE AND THE FRUITS (THE BENEFITS) OF REPENTANCE

This moment in time, The LORD God Almighty, The LORD Jesus Christ and The Holy Spirit is going to help us walk through the meaning and the breakdown of Repentance i.e. the very key parameters and elements of Repentance. And so we will in essence be dissecting what it entails to have embraced Repentance for the forgiveness of sins and turning away from sins. And thereafter, in the second segment The LORD will help us to understand the fruits or benefits of Repentance.

And so Repentance entails the following and has got the following elements/parameters:

1-Returning to The LORD: Returning to The LORD entails turning away from sin, because it is sin that separates us (mankind everywhere) from The LORD God Almighty, The LORD Jesus Christ and The Holy Spirit. In order to be able to know and understand that we are in sin, then we have to hear the word of The LORD as is stipulated in His Holy book: The Holy Bible. And once somebody has received/heard the word (The pure message of The LORD), then they should pick it and run with it to the feet of The LORD Jesus Christ. And this is well captured in the book of Hosea 14:1-2 which states as follows: Return, Israel, to the Lord your God.  Your sins have been your downfall!  Take words with you and return to the Lord.

The same is also very beautifully phrased in the book of Romans 10:14-17  which states: ‘“How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can anyone preach unless they are sent? As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!” But not all the Israelites accepted the good news. For Isaiah says, “Lord, who has believed our message?”  Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word about Christ. But I ask: Did they not hear? Of course they did: “Their voice has gone out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world.”

2- Asking The LORD To Forgive Us Our Sins: Once we run to The feet of The LORD Jesus Christ, then we humbly with sincerity from our hearts ask Him to have mercy on us and to forgive us our sins. And this is well captured in the book of Hosea 14:2 which states: ‘“……Say to him:  “Forgive all our sins……”’

3-The Grace of The LORD: It is very very critical to note that it is only by the grace of The LORD that we get saved (born-again) and our Repentance is accepted before The LORD. In other words, we don’t deserve it, but The LORD in His mercy and grace forgives us our sins and then walks with us in His presence. This is well captured in the book of Hosea 14:2 which states: “……and receive us graciously.”

This is even further expounded on very greatly in the book of Ephesians 2:4-10 which states as follows:  But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved. And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus. For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.

4-The Worship and The Praise of The LORD: Once The LORD has accepted us in His presence by cleansing us and refining us and washing our sins away through His precious blood and the renewing of our minds, then The LORD touches our lips with His Holy Fire so that we may offer the sacrifice of praise and worship unto Him; a living sacrifice through our bodies/lips. The worship in Truth and in Spirit, so that we be in the perfect will of The LORD. And this is very well captured in the book of Hosea 14: 2 which states as follows: “……that we may offer the fruit of our lips.”

This is also very beautifully captured in the book of Romans 12:1-2 which states as follows: Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.

5- Knowing that No one else can save us except The LORD: Our salvation does not come through foreign powers or successful nations. It also does not come from our wealth, level of education, level of rank/position in a corporate ladder, the amount of money we have in the bank, military capability, physical capability, political acumen, social capability etc. Our salvation only comes through The Blood of The LORD Jesus Christ. And this is well summarized in the book of Hosea 14:3 which states as follows: Assyria cannot save us; we will not mount warhorses.

This has also been captured very beautifully in the book of Psalm 37:39-40 which states as follows: The salvation of the righteous comes from the Lord; he is their stronghold in time of trouble.  The Lord helps them and delivers them; he delivers them from the wicked and saves them, because they take refuge in him.

6- The Need to Turn away from Idolatry and Falsehood: Once we embrace The LORD, then we need to turn away from idolatry and falsehood; for then we shall have embraced the truth and returned to the Truth: which is the worship of The LORD in Truth and in Spirit. They shall now not worship false gods (or partake of false religions)  like Krishna (Hinduism), Mohammed (Islam), Allah (Islam), Buddha (Buddhism), devil worship, Free Masonry, New age movement, chrislam, new world order, illuminati, Jesuits, Sikhism etc.

This is well captured in the book of Hosea 14: 3 which states as follows: “………We will never again say ‘Our gods’  to what our own hands have made……”

In the next segment, The LORD is going to help us to walk through the fruits (benefits) of Repentance, in other words, what is in it for us after we return to The LORD in absolute Repentance:

(a)-God will take care of the widows, the orphans and the helpless: The LORD will be compassionate over the widows, orphans and the helpless. And He will stretch His hands over them and provide for them. This is well captured in the book of Hosea 14:3 which states: “……for in you the fatherless find compassion.”

This first fruit of Repentance is furthermore expounded on in the book of James 1:26-27 which states: Those who consider themselves religious and yet do not keep a tight rein on their tongues deceive themselves, and their religion is worthless. Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.

(b)- There will be healing on the land: This is the physical healing; spiritual healing; emotional healing; restoration of family-hood whereupon the hearts of the parents will be turned to their children, and the hearts of the children will be turned to their parents; social healing; institutional/Corporate healing etc. This will thus be a very fundamental fruit of Repentance. This is well captured in the book of Hosea 14:4 which states as follows: “I will heal their waywardness   and love them freely, for my anger has turned away from them.”

The same is expounded on in the book of Malachi 4:5-6 which states as follows: “See, I will send the prophet Elijah to you before that great and dreadful day of the Lord comes. He will turn the hearts of the parents to their children, and the hearts of the children to their parents; or else I will come and strike the land with total destruction.”

The same is also well elucidated on in the book of Malachi 3:1-5 which states as follows: “I will send my messenger, who will prepare the way before me. Then suddenly the Lord you are seeking will come to his temple; the messenger of the covenant, whom you desire, will come,” says the Lord Almighty. But who can endure the day of his coming? Who can stand when he appears? For he will be like a refiner’s fire or a launderer’s soap. He will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver; he will purify the Levites and refine them like gold and silver. Then the Lord will have men who will bring offerings in righteousness, and the offerings of Judah and Jerusalem will be acceptable to the Lord, as in days gone by, as in former years. “So I will come to put you on trial. I will be quick to testify against sorcerers, adulterers and perjurers, against those who defraud laborers of their wages, who oppress the widows and the fatherless, and deprive the foreigners among you of justice, but do not fear me,” says the Lord  Almighty.”’

(c )-The LORD will pour out His anointing Upon His Children (sons and daughters): The LORD will anoint, fill and touch His children, sons and daughters across the globe with the power of The Holy Spirit, and so The LORD will be “like dew to them.”

They will thus do exploits in the name of The LORD, and by the power bestowed upon them by The LORD, The LORD will move very greatly through them. And people everywhere across the globe will know that surely these are a blessed and a chosen royal priesthood of The LORD. So they will shine brightly for The LORD (In the presence of The LORD) as they serve Him. And so they will preach and spread His pure message: The message of Repentance, Righteousness, Holiness, Truth and Complete Surrender to The LORD Jesus Christ. They will thus be nourished by the anointing of The Holy Spirit, and through them people will know that there is hope, a future, peace, joy, love and eternal life only through The LORD Jesus Christ. This indeed will be a very fundamental fruit of Repentance. They will thus be the ministers of the word of God, for they will emit the goodness, the power and the glory of The LORD that has been bestowed upon them by The LORD, as is stated in the book of Proverbs 15:30 which states: “Light in a messenger’s eyes brings joy to the heart, and good news gives health to the bones.

This is all very beautifully captured in the book of Hosea 14:5-7 which states as follows: I will be like the dew to Israel; he will blossom like a lily. Like a cedar of Lebanon he will send down his roots; his young shoots will grow. His splendor will be like an olive tree, his fragrance like a cedar of Lebanon. People will dwell again in his shade; they will flourish like the grain, they will blossom like the vine—Israel’s fame will be like the wine of Lebanon.

Wow, the same is also very well expounded in the book of Joel 2:28-29 which states as follows: “And afterward, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your old men will dream dreams, your young men will see visions. Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days.”’

 (d)-The Wisdom of The LORD will be upon His People: Those who walk in the fear of The LORD, The LORD will bestow upon them the Spirit of discernment. The LORD will teach them and reveal to them very deep mysteries. They will understand very deep spiritual connotations and implications; not by their might or power, but by The Spirit of The LORD. They will thus avoid evil and wickedness, but will embrace Righteousness, purity, Holiness and Truth.

This is well captured in the book of Hosea 14:9 which states: “Who is wise? Let them realize these things.  Who is discerning? Let them understand.

The same is also very well captured in the book of Job 28:27-28 which states as follows: ‘“then he looked at wisdom and appraised it; he confirmed it and tested it. And he said to the human race, “The fear of the Lord—that is wisdom, and to shun evil is understanding.”

(e)- The Prayer of the Righteous will be answered: The Repentant will thus no longer go to witchcraft or to witch doctors for their queries or concerns or for answers; but now they will seek The LORD their God, for then He will be their helper (Jehovah Ebenezer). And since they will now be Righteous before The LORD, The LORD will listen to them and answer their prayers and He will protect them, provide for them and nourish them with the Spiritual food (the anointing of The Holy Spirit). And they will thus bear, enjoy and partake of the fruits of Repentance.

And this is very beautifully captured in the book of Hosea 14:8 which states: Ephraim, what more have I to do with idols?  I will answer him and care for him. I am like a flourishing juniper; your fruitfulness comes from me.”

Remember the Repentant shall have thus attained Righteousness before The LORD and so they will partake of the words of the book of Proverbs 15:29 which states as follows: “The Lord is far from the wicked, but he hears the prayer of the righteous.

(f)- They Will Walk on the Way of The LORD: The wise will walk on the highway of The LORD: the way upon which only the righteous and the holy ones walk: The Highway of Holiness.

Those who have not attained the benchmark of Righteousness, Holiness, Truth and Complete Surrender to The LORD Jesus Christ  cannot journey (walk) on it because they are not qualified to partake of it; they will thus stumble on it because The Holy Fire of The LORD will consume them and destroy them , because the garment that they will be wearing will be a poor quality garment (a filthy garment) that will be burned by the Fire of The LORD; they thus shall not have the pure garment of The LORD; the garment of Righteousness, the garment of Holiness: Fine linen, bright and clean.

This is well captured in the book of Hosea 14:9 which states as follows: “The ways of the Lord are right; the righteous walk in them, but the rebellious stumble in them.

This is also well captured in the book of Isaiah 35:8-9 which states as follows: And a highway will be there; it will be called the Way of Holiness; it will be for those who walk on that Way. The unclean will not journey on it; wicked fools will not go about on it. No lion will be there, nor any ravenous beast; they will not be found there. But only the redeemed will walk there.”

The same is also well elucidated in the book of Zechariah 3:3-5 which states as follows: ‘“Now Joshua was dressed in filthy clothes as he stood before the angel. The angel said to those who were standing before him, “Take off his filthy clothes.” Then he said to Joshua, “See, I have taken away your sin, and I will put fine garments on you.”  Then I said, “Put a clean turban on his head.” So they put a clean turban on his head and clothed him, while the angel of the Lord stood by.”’
And to crown it all, those (The Bride of Christ) who walk on the way of The LORD, will be honoured and befitted in a very grand get-together in Heaven with their Master (The Bridegroom). They will thus inherit the Kingdom of God in Heaven.  This is well captured in the book of Revelation 19:7-9 ‘“Let us rejoice and be glad  and give him glory! For the wedding of the Lamb has come,  and his bride has made herself ready. Fine linen, bright and clean, was given her to wear.” (Fine linen stands for the righteous acts of God’s holy people.) Then the angel said to me, “Write this: Blessed are those who are invited to the wedding supper of the Lamb!” And he added, “These are the true words of God.”

So those are the elements or parameter of Repentance and what Repentance entails; and also what the fruits or benefits of Repentance and what are in it for the wise ones are.

SHALOM!!!

PREPARE THE WAY FOR THE COMING OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST IN ABSOLUTE REPENTANCE, RIGHTEOUSNESS, HOLINESS, TRUTH AND COMPLETE SURRENDER TO THE LORD JESUS CHRIST (YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH). TIME IS ABSOLUTELY OVER; THE MESSIAH JESUS CHRIST IS IMMINENTLY COMING TO PICK HIS BRIDE!!! 

REPENTANCE PRAYER:

Precious Jesus, 

I acknowledge today that you are LORD and savior of all mankind, 

and today I have recognized my shortfall,

I repent and turn away from all sin. 

Please cover me with your precious blood, 

and establish your word in my life,

that I may be found in righteousness and holiness

and write my name in your book of life 

and baptize me with the power of the Holy Spirit 

in the mighty name of Jesus Christ. 

Amen. 




Shalom!!! Shalom!!! Shalom!!!

  3. I had a dream over 5 years ago. In the dream I was in what appeared to be Grand Central Station. (I wasn't sure at the time I had the dream where it was; I am not from New York). It was the end of a week (Friday night) in the dream. People were tired and wanting to get home. Over the PA system in the station I heard a voice, "New Yorkers first, exit through the door (which was to the left)." So the New Yorkers starting heading out that door. Then the voice said to another group, and another group to head out the door. After several groups exiting, I was pretty suspicious so I yelled out, "don't go there, it's a trap!!!" Then eyes were upon me, the door flung open and Nazi soldiers hurried in and started ordering people to exit. Then the scene switched to outdoors and it was total mayhem, with people getting shot.
    I do believe that the dream was a warning about the coming breakdown of society, and that behind the scenes it is a totalitarian regime planning martial law and worse. I do believe, that something will begin in New York.
