Atherosclerosis is a disease in which plaque builds up inside your arteries. Arteries are blood vessels that carry oxygen-rich blood to your heart and other parts of your body. Plaque is made up of fat, cholesterol, calcium, and other substances found in the blood. Over time, plaque hardens and narrows your arteries. This limits the flow of oxygen-rich blood to your organs and other parts of your body.
Atherosclerosis can lead to serious problems, including heart attack, stroke or even death. (Ref: https://www.nhlbi.nih.gov/health/health-topics/topics/atherosclerosis).
Unforgiveness acts like the constituents of plaque that hardens and narrows the blood vessels. This time around, narrows the flow of the God-life in you. It stuffs out the Holy Spirit, his supply of Grace, Peace, Mercy, and opens up one to every manner of evil.
Every attempt to holdon to an offense only increases the size of the plaque in one’s life and this directly dove tails into blockage. Blockage of the God-Life.
Ever wondered why Jesus Christ recommends the ”77 x 7 daily” forgiveness pill for every offender? He understands the enormous effect and gravity of Unforgiveness;
- hinders the receipt of God’s forgiveness (Matt 6:15 – But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins)
- unanswered prayers (Mark 11: 25 -But when you are praying, first forgive anyone you are holding a grudge against)
- Hinders the God-Life (Hebrews 12:15 – See to it that no one falls short of the grace of God and that no bitter root grows up to cause trouble and defile many)
- Sickness and Weakness
- break in relationship
- Anger & Resentment (Witchcraft)
- Lack of joy, peace, excitement and liveliness
- etc the effects are endless. It opens up you to the devil because it shuts out the grace of God.
If you have the Spirit of God dwelling in you, then you have received the ability to forgive EVERY manner of offence. Jesus Christ displayed this grace while being crucified on the Cross. Stephen displayed same while being stoned to death…They cried, Father forgive them for they don’t know what they do.
Friend, your healing may just be tied to that grudge you have refused to forgive and let go. Your freedom, promotion, progress, deliverance, joy, peace may have been hindered because you have refused to forgive that brother or sister or your parents or employee or sibling or colleague.
Do a soul search today and liberate your soul of every bitterness, anger, unforgiveness for whatsoever offence. Your soul should not be the playing ground of the devil, neither was it meant to serve as a laboratory for his experiments (you give him a chance via unforgiveness, he will mess you up) Release them, you shouldn’t carry that load anymore and say it…”I DECIDE AND CHOOSE TO FORGIVE YOU AND LET GO (put their name here)” then put a call, send a message, give them that hug, a handshake or pay a visit to them and let them know they are forgiven. It may seem and feel difficult or awkward but don’t postpone your deliverance. The results are instantaneous!!!
I wait to read from you of the testimony.
Jesus Loves You Unconditionally.
