MATTHEW 5: 7: "Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy."
MATTHEW 18:35 "So likewise shall my heavenly Father do also unto you, if ye from your hearts forgive not every one his brother their trespasses."
JAMES 2: 13 "For he shall have judgment without mercy, that hath shewed no mercy; and mercy rejoiceth against judgment."
Brethren, it is said that the downfall of a man, emanates from his works and ways. In as much as you are not merciful unto your fellow man, do not expect to obtain mercy, for, without mercy, you will have completely perished. I do not say you will perish, but you have already perished.
Even if you are a little child, as long as you refuse to be merciful unto another child, to forgive their trespasses, then you must count yourself out because you cannot obtain from others than which you cannot give out.
It is beneficial, for someone to come in here in humility, digest the words given, and stamp them in your mind.
Whether you are a millionaire, a father, a mother, an adult, or a child, ponder seriously over this gospel, and do not allow yourself to be misled or deceived by anyone, claiming that you will be saved if you do not practise this gospel.
Therefore, from this moment, forgive those who trespass against you, do not be merciless towards your fellow man, do not impute sins against anyone, but be forgiving at all times.
This gospel can save you and create many wonderful things in your life. This is why you are being advised to practise it. It is written that “Heaven and earth shall pass away”, but not an iota of the word of God shall pass away unfulfilled. The Holy Bible also says, "Blessed are the merciful for they shall obtain mercy."
Henceforth, if you decide to be merciful and forgiving towards your fellow brethren, then you too can consider yourself saved. However, if you refuse to forgive and you carry out revenge against the wrong done against you, then believe that you have already perished. The Israelites preferred to be guided by the law, hence they all derailed from the path of rectitude and consequently perished. But the Publicans who had no law binding them acted on what they felt was righteous and were accordingly saved. If you are in the habit of forgiving one another, not imputing sins on others, be you learned or not, baptised or not, you stand to be saved.
The statement which says, “Heaven helps those who help themselves” is now explained here, because all those who are merciful unto others bring salvation unto themselves, whilst all those who are not merciful, will bring condemnation unto themselves. "A wise man sees danger afar and takes precaution, but a stupid man waits till the danger gets to him." You must through this gospel be cautious; let it be your source of salvation.
NO RIGHTEOUS MAN ON EARTH
I am now telling you the whole truth in Heaven and on earth that, the only set of people who shall escape the wrath of God, are those who practise the word of God. If you see two or three people in this kingdom who are saved, then know that they are those who adhered to this gospel. The scriptures have clearly stated that there is no righteous person on earth. “As it is written, there is none righteous, no, not one: There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God." (Romans 3:10-11). You will realise that from the days of Adam to this present age, there is no righteous one. We have all derailed from the path of rectitude.
I want you to imagine how we can be saved if He out of His infinite mercy does forgive our sins. "Just as the sand is without dirty particles, the same is the man without sin." This is what the statement that we are saved by grace implies. If you refrain from all manners of sins like stealing, etc., yet you are not merciful and forgiving, you have perished. If you fast for several days, pray all through your life, such does not save you. But once you are forgiving and merciful, you stand to be saved. No man on earth possesses this wisdom; it is only God who has it. As long as you do not forgive others, you have perished. If you need to be saved, forgive others' trespasses. No matter the nature of their crime. Erase and forgive all forms of sin and receive your salvation. The scripture advises that if we confess our sins, God has the right to forgive and cleanse us of these sins, but if we do not confess them, He will not forgive us. A lot of you face great tribulations because you do not forgive others their trespasses, neither are you merciful.
A lot of you wonder why certain tribulations should come your way; you believe that you have never stolen, killed, told a lie, yet you face different kinds of problems. Search yourself properly, if any brethren have offended you, whose trespass you have refused to forgive. If there is any such, then quickly forgive such a person, and obtain your salvation. If you decide to be merciful and forgiving, it is all to your benefit, because when you do this, you stand to be saved. When you lack mercy and forgiveness, you cannot harm another person; rather you harm yourself because you stand to be condemned. is all. Christ told us that: "Moreover if thy brother shall trespass against thee, go and tell him
Judgement started a long time. Thus, after reading this gospel, do not harden your hearts against your offender anymore.
From now on do not impute sins against your fellow man, forgive others their trespasses, and be merciful, for in so doing, you will obtain mercy, in the name of Our Lord Jesus Christ, Amen.
If you are not merciful unto others, you cannot gain entrance into the Kingdom of God, and you stand condemned. It is out of the infinite mercy of God, that man is saved. None deserves the goodness of God because of our unrighteousness. For this reason, Christ did advise that we should be merciful and compassionate to one another, just as he is with us.
Thank You Father.
