Repentance

Turning away from sin, rejecting the emotions of sin, rejecting the actions of sin, rejecting the consequences of sin. Turning your whole being on what is not acceptable to God.

Sin separates Me from you. It is a barrier through which I will not and can not reach. I do not "abide" in or with sin. Those who live in sin are not "in" Me. because I will not dwell where sin lives. That is not to say I reject the person, I do not, but where sin lives I do not.

Thanks of your life as a home with many rooms. There are rooms you live in daily and there are rooms you only visit occasionally. Some rooms are light filled, some are dark. The rooms are memories of the past and the consequences of the actions taken. Some come from the deep distant past beyond your living memory. The iniquity buried in your ancestor's past.

Most are your own decisions, actions and consequences. But all are a part of you and the home you live in. A mixture of light and dark and being added to daily.

What separates you from Me are the decision, actions and consequences of sin - unbelief, nonconformance to My word, My life, My ways, My truth. Anything and everything that falls outside the Kingdom is sin.

The greater the degree of yielding to My ways, Life and Truth the greater the degree of living within the Kingdom. Rest assured your life is hidden in Me if you have entered through the straight and narrow gate. But the way you walk is the degree of freedom from sin. The greater the repentance from sin - past and present - the greater the freedom from sin.

As you walk in the Kingdom Light the greater the revelation of sin will become. If you say you have no sin, you lie, but as you turn away from darkness within your self, the greater the freedom within the Kingdom becomes. As your confession and repentance of sin grows, so the light begins to fill the dark rooms and the house, your dwelling place, becomes a greater reflections of My light, a yielded life.

The oil of your joy is increased and becomes filled to overflowing. This is why the wise virgins waiting for the bridegroom are able to able to keep their lamps burning and have extra (oil). They are the ones with a yielded spirit, who have filled their lamps; whose whole dwelling place becomes the temple of God.

Those (ones) have allowed the light and love of their God to fill all the dark rooms, who have opened the doors of their sins to allow the Light to shine and reveal the sin (darkness) within and walk out of the prison. Turning away from the sin (repentance) and being set free by the power of Love.

These ones are the chosen, the remnant, the Bride. Anyone and everyone who comes to Me , who yielded and worship Me is acceptable to Me. I reject no one. But the degree wherein an individual yields to Me, repents of sin, obeys My commandments, Lives My Life, reflects My Light, is filled with Joy - all these qualities are the fruits of the Spirit that reflect the Light within.


John 12:46 I have come as a light into the world, that whoever believes in Me should not abide in darkness

Matt 9:13 But go and learn what this means: 'I desire mercy and not sacrifice.' For I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners, to repentance

2 Cor 7:10 For godly sorrow produces repentance leading to salvation, not to be regretted; but the sorrow of the world produces death.

2 Pet3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us,
not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.

Isa 42:6-7 ...I will keep you and will make you to be a covenant for the people and a light for the Gentiles, to open eyes that are blind, to free captives from prison and to release from the dungeon those who sit in darkness.

John 16:7 Nevertheless I tell you the truth. It is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you; but if I depart, I will send Him to you. And when He has come, He will convict the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: of sin, because they do not believe in Me; of righteousness, because I go to My Father and you see Me no more; of judgment, because the ruler of this world is judged.

Matt 25 The Virgins Parable
10 But while they were on their way to buy the oil, the bridegroom arrived. The virgins who were ready went in with him to the wedding banquet.
And the door was shut.

1 Cor 3:16 Don’t you know that you yourselves are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in your midst?
