FORGIVENESS IN THE KINGDOM GOSPEL & FORGIVENESS IN THE GRACE GOSPEL - By Robert E. Hanna


Scripture Reading: Mark 11:25-26, Ephesians 4:30-32

The power of forgiveness of sin is, and always has been,  in God's hands; but He has not always dealt with the process  in precisely the same manner. Under the kingdom economy,  the stated condition is recorded thusly in the words of Christ  to His disciples: "When ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have  ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven  may forgive your trespasses. But if Ye do not forgive,  neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive  your trespasses" (Mark 11:25-26). "Forgive, andye shall be  forgiven" (Luke 6:37). When teaching His disciples how to  pray, He said, "Forgive us bur debts, as we forgive our  debtors" (Matthew 6:12). The condition is clear: forgive, so  that God can forgive you. Such was forgiveness under the  kingdom gospel.

We today are not under the kingdom gospel but the  Gospel of the Grace of God! Our instruction from the risen  Lord Jesus Christ comes to us through the apostle to the  Gentiles, by the name of Paul. "Be ye kind one to another,  tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for  Christ's sake HATH FORGIVEN YOU" (Ephesians 4:32).  "In whom [Christ] we have redemption through His blood,  the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His  grace" (Ephesians 1:7). "And you, being dead in your sins and  the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath He quickened together  ~th Him, having forgiven you all trespasses"  (Colossians 2:13).




How God Saves Men
Believing Christ DIED, that’s HISTORY.
Believing Christ DIED for YOU SINS and Rose again that’s SALVATION.
