2 Corinthians 2:10-11

Amplified Bible (AMP)

10 If you forgive anyone anything, I too forgive that one; and what I have forgiven, if I have forgiven anything, has been for your sakes in the presence [and with the approval] of Christ (the Messiah),

11 To keep Satan from getting the advantage over us; for we are not ignorant of his wiles and intentions.

When you hear these scriptures you should be reminded about forgiveness. If you don’t forgive neither will the Lord forgive you. If you don’t forgive, your offerings will not be blessed and multiplied. Forgiveness unblocks the blessing blockers in your life. Releasing forgiveness opens a door for you but also for the recipient. Forgiveness is not for the other person, it’s for you. Remember, forgiveness is what Jesus did even after they crucified Him. Luke 23:34 (King James Version) Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. And they parted his raiment, and cast lots.Can you do the same thing? Will you do the same thing?

Too many times people get offended. Offense is what opens the door for satan to take advantage of the person who is offended. Offense keeps the blessing from manifesting. Offense is what divides churches. Some may say well I did not like the way the Pastor spoke today. Then you my friend are very offended. Offense is the key tactic for satan to come in and divide. Division is the name of the game for satan. If you don’t like something that the Pastor has said, pray for him or her. If all you do is get offended, then you have been hanging out with satan. If you’re not, then whatever the Pastor says will not bother you. Offense is the opening of your hedge of protection. If you open it up then you open yourself to a nasty attack from satan and his cohorts.

Choose to walk in forgiveness just like Jesus. Even after people stomp on you forgive them anyways. People will make mistakes and it’s your job to love them regardless of how many mistakes they make.

Peter asked Jesus a question… Matthew 18:21-22 King James Version (KJV) 21 Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times? 22 Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven.Jesus responded with a love answer! Love covers the multitude of sin and trespasses. Because we are called Christians we are to be Christ-like, always!

If you think your blessings have been blocked, then ask God to show you what is holding your blessings captive. If you find that you have been offended then you need to ask God to forgive you. You need to release forgiveness to whomever you have been offended with. Forgiveness will set you free and release your blessings.
