Jacob Answers (The Unforgiveable Sin)

The Unforgivable Sin

This week I put a line in the water to see what type of discussion could be caught. I received a bunch of wonderful comments and emails with a variety of topics, some I tried to answer as replies, others I responded personally to, but the one I really felt that many could benefit from was a question that came from Ricky Ramos about the unforgivable sin. Here is his question.

Hello, Jacob. I was here before asking you what do you believe is the unpardonable sin. I am interested in your answer because I have been reading about this a lot and havent really gotten an answer that satisfies me. – Ricky Ramos Apr 27, 10:29 pm

What a great question and as Ricky stated, many times I have heard people try to explain this one to me and, like Ricky, I never got an answer that made any sense at all. Just more fear poured upon fear. Well, it’s time we put an end to that. So, let’s tak a look at one of the scriptures that states this.

Matthew 12:32
32 And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come.

Let me start by stating why this is such an important scripture to understand.

We all know by now, HOPEFULLY, that the LETTER (that is, the literal understanding of scripture) KILLS, and the SPIRIT of the scripture gives life.

Time and time again we have seen people twisting and turning the scriptures to mean all sorts of things and to further all sorts of agendas. The scripture that has Ricky asking questions has been used to further the belief in infinite torture, which is the commonly held belief of a literal place called “Hell” that our God of Love supposedly created to send those he created ignorant of him to begin with. SILLY RIGHT?

Now, of course I am not about to go into a deep explanation as to why there is no such place. I have written extensively about this in the past, see my article “Hell Revealed”, or “The Lake of Fire Revealed” for more information about the topic. Hopefully you have been coming to this site long enough to know that the HELL that is written about in scripture is another world for “the place of the dead, the hidden place, the grave, Sheol” etc… meaning it is another word for “Ignorant Suffering”, remember people only the TRUTH sets people free, the lies and cares of this world cause nothing but misery, weeping and gnashing of teeth.

That being said, I’m sure you can see how people can take the scripture in question, that states THERE IS AN UNFORGIVEABLE SIN, and extrapolate that this is evidence that God would torture his ignorant creation endlessly, instead of teaching them, correcting them, guiding them, and saving them from their ignorance AS SCRIPTURE STATES. 🙂

Personally, I can’t see how anyone could deduce that there is anything we could possibly do that would move God to completely give up on us for. Sure we will REAP what we SOW, we will be corrected for what we do wrong, but God give up on us? NEVER!

Psalm 94:14
For the LORD will not cast off his people, neither will he forsake his inheritance!

No, there is NOTHING that can seperate us from the LOVE OF GOD! Let me get this first very important point out-of-the-way… There is NOTHING that can seperate us from God!

Romans 8
35Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?

Can anything seperate us from the love of God through Christ? The answer once again is, NO!

Romans 8
38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, 39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

So is it EVER POSSIBLE that God would give up on us? The answer is always, NO, it would be IMPOSSIBLE FOR GOD TO GIVE UP ON US!

Luke 1:37
For with God nothing shall be impossible.

Nothing is impossible for God. God can do all things!

But it is however IMPOSSIBLE for anyone, or anything to thwart God’s will. Meaning what God wants God gets!

Proverbs 19:21
Many are the plans in a man’s heart, but it is the LORD’s purpose that prevails.

Isaiah 43:13
Yes, and from ancient days I am he. No one can deliver out of my hand. When I act, who can reverse it?”

Daniel 4:35
All the peoples of the earth are regarded as nothing. He does as he pleases with the powers of heaven and the peoples of the earth. No one can hold back his hand or say to him: “What have you done?”

I hope you can see that God’s will WILL be done, regardless. EVEN IF WE DON’T BELIEVE… NOTHING CAN STOP GOD’S WILL!

God doesn’t need US to do anything, say anything, be anything, or believe anything, it is GOD that does the work. YES, he creates the good and the seemingly bad. God does it all! GOD IS IN CONTROL, ALWAYS AND FOREVER! So what God wants God gets… The reason for this is wonderful… And those who have “ears to hear this will”.

2 Timothy 2:13
If we believe not, yet he abideth faithful: he cannot deny himself.

So even our UNBELIEF can’t stop God’s will. Now why am I making this point?

The answer you will understand the moment you UNDERSTAND what GOD’S WILL is.

You see it is God’s will to have all of mankind saved.

1 Timothy 2:4
Who WILL have ALL men (mankind) to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.

Now this is REALLY GOOD NEWS (the gospel). No matter what we have done, no matter where we have gone, no matter what we believe and don’t believe, EVENTUALLY all will be saved from their ignorance, and ALL will come to the KNOWLEDGE OF THE TRUTH AND THE STATURE OF THE PERFECT MAN (CHRIST).


People are just ignorant. Now Ricky, when I explain this to you, you and many other may just clock yourselves in the head with the palm of your hand like someone in a V-8 commercial.

This explanation, I hope, will clear up SO MUCH for SO MANY when it comes to this scripture that has so many scared that they may have ignorantly sinned against the Holy Spirit for which there is NO FORGIVENESS… dun dun dunnnnnn!

Let’s start by DEFINING what FORGIVENESS is.

According to Mirriam Webster, this is the definition:

a: to give up resentment of or claim to requital for b: to grant relief from payment of

Let me put it plain for you. Say you owe me twenty dollars and can’t pay me back. To FORGIVE you of that debt would mean I say, HEY DON’T WORRY ABOUT IT, YOU OWE ME NOTHING.

Forgiveness means YOU DO SOMETHING for which a penalty should be paid and it IS NOT paid but the debt is forgiven!

Let me write that again, to FORGIVE means if someone wrongs you, borrows from you, or does something that need repair or repayment, the person who has done the wrong, or borrowing is simply FORGIVEN of any offense, debt, or error on their part. They aren’t punished, they aren’t held accountable, they aren’t guilty, they don’t need to make amends, they don’t need to make small payments monthly until it is paid back.

TO FORGIVE means to COMPLETELY RELEASE someone from any type of debt, be that a monetary debt, offence, or error.

Okay, hopefully you understand what FORGIVENESS means now.

NOW, you may be able to see why this scripture that has so many people upset and worried is really nothing at all to be upset and worried about. Because if truth be told, we are CONSTANTLY SINNING AGAINST the holy spirit, for which there is no forgiveness. Which means, we are corrected! THAT’S IT!

We aren’t forgiven (RELEASED from our mistake or debt) because if God simply allowed us to do wrong without having us reap what we have sown WE WOULD NEVER LEARN and COME TO THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE TRUTH.

You see, God cannot simply FORGIVE us (release completely) from our wrong doings, otherwise how else would be learn from them?

It is not a bad or terrible thing to NOT BE FORGIVEN for sinning (being in error, missing the point, missing the mark, missing the truth).

Let’s say that we grew up to believe that if someone stole from us, that it was God’s will to cut of that person’s hand, that would be a SIN against the HOLY SPIRIT (WHICH IS TRUTH AND LOVE AND LIFE). Meaning, it is NOT God’s will for us to hurt those who hurt us, it is God’s will for us to LOVE and FORGIVE even our enemies.

Matthew 5:44
But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you

To believe that you must someone hate, condemn, or hurt those who hurt you is SINNING AGAINST THE HOLY SPIRIT. To put it plainly, you missed the mark, you missed the TRUTH that we must LOVE! In addition, if God was to simply forgive you of that error, you would never learn. SO, there is NO FORGIVENESS for such an act. Now does that mean God condemns you to a place of endless torture? OF COURSE NOT! There is no such thing.

However, it does mean, God will repay the offender by having them reap what they sow. God will correct that offender by allowing the same thing to happen to them whether in this world, or the next.

Matthew 12:32
32 And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come.

If the words coming out of our mouth are contrary to the TRUTH, it is unforgivable. Meaning, God will correct us and put the right words in our mouth. If our actions are contrary to God’s truth and love, God will correct us. It is unforgivable. AND THAT IS A GOOD THING! Because if we were just allowed to get away with anything and everything, we would NEVER come to the TRUTH and we would be forever lost. Meaning we would never enter the Promise Land of Righteousness, Peace, Joy, and Power in the Holy Ghost.

Just like the child who need to get burned a couple of times before he or she stops touching that hot stove, God corrects us of our ignorance by allowing us to simply reap what we sow. SO WE DON’T HURT OURSELVES FURTHER WITH OUR IGNORANT BEHAVIOR.

Galatians 6:7
Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap

If you do foolish things, you will reap those things. If you do right and your actions are pure and there is love in your heart you will reap peace in return.

8For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.

Anyone that teaches that GOD GIVES UP ON US, is in fact SINNING against the HOLY SPIRIT themselves.

And yes for that there is no forgiveness. Meaning, God will have to correct a person that thinks that God will give up them, because THAT IS NOT TRUE, it is error, it is SIN. And it is a horrible place to be spiritually. It is a foolish thought.

Let’s reason… If God gives up on us then we have permission to give up on others. If God wants people to suffer, then it gives us permission to the do the same. THAT IS SIN (foolish thinking). No God is LOVE and love it patient, gentle, kind, it doesn’t seek to strive, it does not HOLD ACCOUNTS and it NEVER CASTS OFF! But love also CORRECTS. Which is why, we are set STRAIGHT when we are riding our High Horse in error as Paul was. We need to be corrected of our SIN (foolish thinking)

Proverbs 24:9
The thought of foolishness is sin

If God simply FORGAVE us for not knowing the truth, and living the truth, then we would never know the TRUTH. And we would be forever lost.

If God didn’t CORRECT us for every error and allowed us to continue on the path of evil (ignorance) then God never loved us to begin with.

But since GOD IS LOVE, God WILL correct us, he can’t allow us to get away with being ignorant. God corrects those he loves.

Hebrews 12:
5 And ye have forgotten the exhortation which speaketh unto you as unto children, My son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of him:
6 For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth.
7 If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not?

We have long attributed believed forgiveness with how a person feel’s about us.

When a child does wrong, their parents punish them and then when the punishment is over the parent says, “Are you sorry?” And when the child says they are, the parent says, “I forgive you.”

However, THAT is NOT forgiveness, as we now know.

FORGIVESS would be for that parent to simply allow the child to do wrong and not hold him or her accountable. And if we, as parents, did such a thing… we would not be considered good parents. Because we know better than our children. Our children are ignorant of many things that we understand through experience. So when they do wrong we HAVE to correct them so they won’t make those same mistakes again and can go on to live a full, joy filled life. GOD IS NO DIFFERENT!

We can sin again the SON OF MAN (Which is our sense of being/ego) but we CANNOT sin against the HOLY SPIRIT, which is truth. We cannot be ignorant of the TRUTH, we MUST be corrected for this. AND THAT IS ALSO GREAT NEWS! Because through our correction comes the great Glory of what we become when all is said and done.

Romans 8:18
For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.

As is written in Mark, the reason there is no forgiveness for Blaspheming or Sinning against the Holy Ghost is because the person is in danger of a period of time where they are corrected (judged) so they can be separated from their ignorance instead of being separated from the TRUTH in their own imagination. This is what “eternal damnation” means, it is an undefined period of time (aionos) of separation/judgment. It does NOT MEAN that since the ignorant person is ignorant that God will send them to a place of endless torture, it just means that God MUST correct them. And thank God for that.

So Ricky, I sure hope this has given you an answer that satisfies your question. I hope you now know what forgiveness is, and why correction and guidance is so important.

Most importantly, I hope that everyone reading this essay is left with a feeling of peace, knowing that no matter where they are, no matter what they are going through, everything is working together for their Good.

Romans 8:28
And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

God loves us so much that he won’t forgive us when we are ignorant of him, he will correct us and bring us to the truth and perfect stature of his son (child) and we can finally believe in the name (NATURE) that is above ALL NAMES (NATURES) so we can finally be FORGIVEN (released) from the ignorance that once haunted us for so long.

    The Image God Expressed of Himself reflects and returns all things to Himself.

  2. jpdanna September 17, 2013 / 1:45 PM

    If we don’t know the Omnipresence of the Holy Spirit, the “Life Force” which is in every one … and still see a separation that cannot happen since we are unity by our very design beyond the temporal superficial personality, then how could we possibly operate in the realm of forgiveness? Forgiveness is the recognition of us as eternal souls who had bought into untruth. Acknowledge forgiveness as a bridge with one foot in this world and one foot in the next with the Will of God inherent in ALL bringing forth the thought to build a bridge at all. At the most basic an important level, we ARE the Will of what we call God.

    WOW!! What can I say but Thank you. I Have often wondered how to complete that scripture, rather understand that scripture. But understanding “Forgiveness” makes it so clear. That actually helped me in many situations. Thank you for endeavor to uncover (reveal) the truth of Abba’s word. Shalom

      You are so welcome Gail! As always your comments are such a joy to read. Have the best week ever, Jacob

    I am sorry for judging.
    I am only saying that the bible should be taken into context. God wants a relationship with us and from what the bible says if we choose not to have a relationship with God he will choose not to no know us when the time of judgement comes.

    God does love us and yes he has forgiven our sins but it is our choice for a relationship with him that saves us.

    We need to obey him and that will bring us blessing.

    I just pray that even though you know Gods love you still seek out guidance and truth within the bible and in fellowship with other believers. Please believe that church is important and obeying Gods teachings is important. This will bring blessing in our lives.

    God bless

    • Dan G. May 13, 2012 / 11:30 AM

      Kate….What a blessing! Kate, many like Jacob and I have been the church route already. We happily attended services with the utmost confidence that God would be known and the truth of this whole life thing would be established. I do believe that most all who start going to church have been made thirsty and hungry (the attributes of a seed) The seed needs its water and nutrients from the SOIL IT IS PLANTED IN….In a church setting most all have a pulpit head that people hear and get these desires met….Now think on that a minute…..Is that seed planted in another? There is only ONE teacher and that is Christ….Kate…You know that Adam (means mankind in Hebrew) was made in the IMAGE of God Gen 1:27..
      2Cr 4:4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
      Kate Christ is that image man was made in…It doesnt mean that a single man or woman is Christ but CHRIST is the truth of all men. In Christ the truth of who we are has been hidden. As the above scripture states we are blinded to that truth of who we are….That is the SIN…The lack of knowledge the unbelief or just not giving a hoot about our true image God has already created us in…Kate the one who needs deliverance is the soul (mind) from the wicked one…As Jacob stated that wicked one is our ego…He defined that ego very well…Now back to the seed
      Christ is that garden that the seed God gave you must be planted in and remain…..Eph 2:8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: [it is] the gift of God: This scripture tells us ….For by Grace (God’s help) are we SAVED (liberated) through FAITH ( the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things NOT SEEN…not of yourselves… John the Baptist conceded that Christ needed to increase in him then he would decrease…This is the gift OF GOD…not a pastor or any clergy head…
      1Jo 2:27 But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him….. We start by putting our trust and hope that God loves us and at His timing we will see change in our nature as Christ…. which is…1Cr 1:24 But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God. Works from within us no pastor or group of peopl can teach you or give you anything you need to realize the truth that is a gift from God… Now I made reference of the need to repent…In church circles these days they will tell you it means to turn away or turn to God….God is faithful…back in the day that word was not pent but yet “pend” so we are to “re” pend…so you say what? You know it today as “depend”…So when Jesus the Christ says “repent” He is saying re…which meand again and pent (d) which means to depend upon…..So the Christ is saying to repent meaning “again depend upon me”…So you have to ask when did I depend on Christ before….Some say we are dead and if we are dead spiritually we must have been alive..hmmm
      Col 3:4 When Christ, [who is] our life…..So if we are dead then Christ must have died within us…..I leave you that mystery to guide you. Kate seek God and all He has for there is no lack there…trust what is not seen and hope in that which cannot fail….with much love

    • jacobisrael71 May 14, 2012 / 8:30 AM

      Kate, no apology necessary at all…. But thank you for doing so. And believe me when I say, if you see someone spending a majority of his life to study, seeking, and prayer it is a good call that I am seeking out God’s guidance. In fact I don’t believe it is possible for anyone not to be led by God, one way or the other. “Man may think he knows which way is right, but it is God that directs his steps” – Also, I know the Church to be he Body, not a building where people gather, although I would love to find a place near me that saw God in the light and not the way others have taught. For now I am grateful for all the wonderful people that I meet and that share with me. Much love to you and yours, jacob

    Brad and Kate…..”I will choose to take what the bible says not an essay on ONE MANS opinion “…words are very important!…………Psa 12:4 Who have said, With our tongue will we prevail; our lips [are] our own: who [is] lord over us? You see by your statement “you will choose” you dishonor the Lord and all who seek Him…..Where is the scripture that says anyone is to choose what is right or wrong? Iam pretty sure God is our judge…what I mean by that is that it is the Lord alone that sets what is right before us….Want to see what is wrong…. choose? Its not about what you choose to believe..The fact is that “IF” you have taken up the cross (which when God reveals to you what that is it is necessary) and the Holy Spirit of Christ truly dwells in you there is no choice. What fellowship does light have with darkness….With all the hope I can muster toward you PLEASE seek the true God which is reachable only within your mind (soul) your soul needs a re birth…Now I hope you will not cast this aside but you may not be able to help yourself….The Lord recommends grace….grace means simply “God’s help”…Try and be saved any other way….First you must repent…Find out what Jesus the Christ meant when he said you must repent….clearly you have not or you would not have said you choose anything of the Lord….The Spirit in me only wishes you the best with this but lets see how the spirit in you receives this.

  6. Kate May 8, 2012 / 8:55 AM

    I will choose to believe what the bible says. The bible says that there is a PLACE that is heaven. This is what the Christian faith is. Living for God doing his works and having a relationship with him so that we might spend eternity with him. Heaven is not a state it is a place.

    You need to read the bible in its raw reality not in a twist you like to spin on it.
    God does forgive all sins yes but sin to him is pretty much out of the picture after he sent his son to die for us. It is now our decision for a relationship with him that he is looking for.
    God wants us to draw near to him and have a relationship with him. And it says in the bible that people who do not draw near and have a relationship with God will not enter the GATES of heaven.
    How can you read the whole bible and believe that a heaven and hell does not exist and that it is a state?

    I will choose to take what the bible says not an essay on ONE MANS opinion and I pray that others will read the bible and believe for themselves what IS TRUE.

    • jacobisrael71 May 11, 2012 / 5:55 PM


      You can always believe what you want. Remember opinions everyone has, but there is only one truth. Pray for the truth, seek the truth, and love others, even your enemies, and eventually you will only see me as you see yourself. Much love and peace to you and yours, Jacob

    Matthew chapter 25 v 1-13 and 31-46

    You can’t just pick and choose bible versus it needs to be read in context.

    Matthew 7 v 21-23

    After reading these versus how can you say all will be saved.

    • jacobisrael71 May 8, 2012 / 7:41 AM


      I have written extensively about why eventually God brings his creation to victory, why all come to the knowledge of the truth, why all come to the stature of the perfect man, why all of creation will sing praises to God, how out of all the Father gave the son not one was lost, how it is God’s will all be saved and nothing can thwart God’s will. How in Adam death came to all men, and because of one man’s sacrfice how much more life comes to all men… The list of these scriptures are more than evident in the bible. I have also written essays on what Hell really is (our ignorant suffering) and how the only thing that is destroyed is man’s Ego (carnal nature)… My point is, I am not taking scriptures out of context but putting them in the correct context. For example Matt 7:21-23 Not everyone that says Lord, Lord will enter the Kingdom of Heaven… Brad the Kingdom of Heaven IS WITHIN YOU… But many see it as some place you go after you physically die. The point of this scripture is to say, many led by their EGO’s claim God and yet them will not enter in. Man’s Ego (Flesh) cannot enter the kingdom of God…. Have faith man, God’s arm is not slack that it cannot save. And God makes EVERYTHING beautiful in its time. Peace to you and yours, Jacob

      • Brad May 8, 2012 / 9:12 AM

        I am not interested in your writings and essays as they are based on misunderstandings from the true and only word the bible. I will continue to pray for you and others that read this that the true and only word is Gods living book the bible and not essays based on misinterpreting single verses.

      • jacobisrael71 May 11, 2012 / 5:57 PM

        Brad, keep seeking and praying for the truth no matter what the cost. You don’t need to agree with me, but I hope and pray you will seek God and only God within you for the truth, and I pray you will see that only LOVE is the key to set people free. Peace man, Jacob

    • Gail Childers July 3, 2012 / 7:22 AM

      Brad, do you know what helped me? I began doing word searches. Finding the original meanings of the words intended to be the “Word of God”. When I found the original meaning of the words, the puzzle came together for me. It wasn’t even based on anyone’s essays. It was only confirmed by others teaching the truth. I find it helpful to use Strong’s concordance in Greek and Hebrew and the Greek Lexicon. It breaks down the word so that you see what it originally meant. It is sad that we have a “watered down and filtered” version of the Scriptures because of transliteration. But when we look for ourselves and “search the scriptures to find life” then we have found truth and can only give God the glory for that. I know God will move you to study on your own and dig deeper than ever before to find the truth. Then life becomes an excitement that cannot be contained. Praise Abba!! Shalom Brother.

    You should put this in a video. This is one of those scriptures that is has so totally bound people in their minds. Thanks, Brother.

  9. Floyd Jackson April 30, 2012 / 12:55 AM

    I enjoyed the article and agree with this simple truth. I would be interested your definition of sin. Is it simply a lack of love.


  10. christa April 29, 2012 / 3:33 PM

    thank you SO MUCH for your passion to help others on their unique journeys, Jacob. I LOVED this writing, as always…..Christa XXX

  11. Patrick Strickland April 29, 2012 / 1:02 PM

    John 16:8-9 KJV And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: (9) Of sin, because they believe not on me;

    I was taking a closer look at that passage and found out that the word “on” in verse 9 is the greek word eis which literally means “into”. This changed the meaning so much for me to know that the Holy spirit is not correcting us just because we did not believe in what Jesus did for us but he is correcting us so that we may know we have the same nature, charater, and authority that Jesus does: and that we may be able to walk and talk from that life we have in Him..

    It is amazing that the only sin the holy Ghost corrects us for is not believeing INTO the Son of God.

    I loved your article it spoke much truth for those who have ears to hear.

    Grace and Peace Patrick

  12. Patricia Lewis Castle April 28, 2012 / 8:01 PM

    Enjoyed this one Jacob. I really needed that one. There is so much peace in knowing God loves us enough to correct us.

    • jacobisrael71 April 29, 2012 / 8:22 AM

      So glad you enjoyed it Patricia, peace to you and yours!

  13. Dan G. April 28, 2012 / 7:39 PM

    Well Jacob…I needed to hear that…much more has become clearer.
    Pro 23:14 Thou shalt beat him with the rod, and shalt deliver his soul from hell. Of course many think this is license to beat a kid senseless and into submission…but how many would be empowered to know that the rod is only consequence….How many times does a parent rescue the child from his or her consequence?
    Pro 29:15 The rod and reproof give wisdom: but a child left [to himself] bringeth his mother to shame. The scriptures are very consistant the consequence and correction bring wisdom….Thanks Jacob

    • jacobisrael71 April 29, 2012 / 8:23 AM

      I totally agree, the ROD is not a literal rod, but more of an authority of truth, if you spare the rod (authority of truth) you spoil the child (immature in the faith)… and the consequences of our actions indeed teach us. Thanks so muchh man, great scriptures too! Jacob

    • Gail Childers July 3, 2012 / 7:07 AM

      Thank you so much for the word you gave on rescuing a child from consequence. We have been rescuing one of our adult children from consequences due to some things that happened to her in her childhood. As we continue to walk in that we feel sorry for her and rescue her. Now her actions have become more severe and Abba is telling us to allow her to face her consequence or she will never learn how to act like an adult. You may have been referring to a spiritual concept here but it hit me like a lightning bolt. So thanks for your truth.
