of us there are pockets of resistance. Numbers 13:30 “And Caleb
stilled the people before Moses, and said, Let us go up at once, and
possess it; for we are well able to overcome it.”We have to drive out the enemy. V31

longer you let ungodly factors in your life the more control they have
over you.Luke 10:29,“But he, willing to justify himself,
said unto Jesus, And who is my neighbour?”When you start to justify yourself you

Ten Commandments are not the ten suggestions.Exodus 20:1, “And God spake all these words, saying, 2I
am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out
of the house of bondage. 3Thou shalt have no other gods before me. 4Thou
shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any
thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is
in the water under the earth: 5Thou shalt not bow down thyself
to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting
the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth
generation of them that hate me; 6And showing mercy unto
thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments. 7Thou shalt not
take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not
hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain. 8Remember the sabbath
day, to keep it holy. 9Six days shalt thou labour, and
do all thy work: 10But the seventh day is the sabbath of the
LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy
daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy
stranger that is within thy gates: 11For in six days the LORD
made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the
seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it. 12Honour thy father
and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the
LORD thy God giveth thee. 13Thou shalt not kill. 14Thou shalt not commit
adultery. 15Thou shalt not steal. 16Thou shalt not
bear false witness against thy neighbour. 17Thou shalt not
covet thy neighbour’s house; thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s wife, nor his manservant,
nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass,
nor any thing that is thy neighbour’s.
What force motivates you? 2Cor 10:3-5,“For though we walk in the flesh, we
do not war after the flesh: 4(For the weapons of our warfare are not
carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) 5Casting
down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the
knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of
holds within ourselves.

Jesus demands you to forgive.Regardless of what you say, it controls your life.(Whatever it is).Even if you don’t feel like forgiveness you have to forgive so it
does not control you.
Putrefaction destroys your life.Some society ties the murder victim to your back till you die.
always forgive for selfish purposes – its to free you up not anyone
you hate something – you are tied to it.
be tied to your history – “Don’t let the devil jump between you and God”.
If you don’t
forgive you will miss the business you should have or could have had. Matthew
6:14 and 15, “For if ye forgive men their
trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you:15But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your
Father forgive your trespasses.”
