True Repentance Changes The Way You Think

7 Feb

Ecclesiastes 3:1,“To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:”

Often times a season of sorrow is beneficial to us because it brings true repentance.

2 Corinthians 7:10,”For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the world worketh death.”

The kind of sorrow Papa God is showing us here means he wants us to experience his divine presence so we stay on the narrow pathway of holiness and as a result that it would obviously lead us away from the devil traps of every manner of sin and bare the fruit of salvation instead. There’s no regret for that kind of sorrow. The Lord brings conviction on us, whereas the sort of worldly sorrow, results mostly because you got caught doing wrong and so that which would be lacking true repentance, and the end results is spiritual and eventually physical death.

C. S. Lewis said, “Repentance is no fun at all. It is something much harder than merely eating humble pie. It means unlearning all the self-conceit and self-will that we have been training ourselves into for thousands of years.”
There are quite a few people we read about in our Holy Guide Book to the Supernatural who were very sorry about things they did, but they weren’t repentant.

For example, Exodus 9:27 ,”And Pharaoh sent, and called for Moses and Aaron, and said unto them, I have sinned this time: the Lord is righteous, and I and my people are wicked.” Pharaoh admitted his sin, just as many sinners understand deep down when they have done wrong. Pharaoh summoned Moses and Aaron and tells them . ‘This time I see it I have sinned,’ Pharaoh makes this confession and he goes as far as to say. ‘The Lord is the righteous one, and my people and I are wrong.'” Yet Pharaoh went on to deliberately continually sin against God and His people. What is with that? He was like a man with an addiction who says, “wait I need to stop before I ruin my life and lose my family and business,” and yet because he wasn’t truly converted he keeps on sinning and basically signs his death certificate. The wages of sin is death.Romans 6:23 ,” For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

For another example take old king Saul who admitted his sin to Samuel, we read in  1 Samuel 15:24,” And Saul said unto Samuel, I have sinned: for I have transgressed the commandment of the Lord, and thy words: because I feared the people, and obeyed their voice.” Saul knew better but he didn’t seem to understand not every thought wasn’t his own so he willfully sinned in his desire to people please instead pleasing the Lord. Saul is saying “I have sinned,”didn’t stop Saul from doing it his own way instead the Lord’s way. Its either chose Yahweh or you the chose to travel the curse highway..
How about the story of the rich young ruler came to the Lord Jesus and asked how to have eternal life in Matthew 19:16-24. In verse 21,” Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me. 22 But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful: for he had great possessions.” That wealthy young man went away sorrowful but not repentant. Because he wasn’t willing to change. He wasn’t willing to pick up his cross daily, deny himself and follow the Lord Jesus/Yeshua into the most glorious blessings.

Luke 9:23 And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.

1 John 2:15 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.

All these people we read about in the Holy Scriptures were experiencing what the apostle Paul termed “worldly sorrow, which is simply feeling sorrowful without the essential and needed repentance part. Without true repentance the end result leads to spiritual and physical death” (2 Corinthians 7:10). There is quite a massive difference between experiencing remorse and experiencing true repentance. I believe this is vital for us to understand as we go and share Christ’s love. Yes most people are very sorry when they are caught in their sins, like someone caught in the act of adultery. They are sorry when they begin to start reaping what they been sowing. But seriously just being sorrowful they got caught doesn’t necessarily mean they are going to become truly repentant, that they are going to change the way they think and put on the mind of Christ.

1 Corinthians 2:16 – For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.

How we begin to put on the mind of Christ is that we get into the Word of God so the Word of God gets into us.

3 John 1:2,” Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.”

Psalm 103:2,” Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: 3 Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases; 4 Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies;”

The Lord Jesus/Yeshua said in John 10:27,” My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:” Fight back overcomers, trust Papa God for every detail and stay in faith! Jesus said in Luke 21:15, “For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist.’ I say hallelujah! Because “All”, things are possible with God! I pray the Lord’s supernatural peace, healing, provision and protection cover you always with oceans of agape love in the almighty name of Jesus/Yeshua!
