Yisrayl Hawkins magnifies patience in forgiveness and the great example this sets for children…
Be very patient with your children. They probably got a couple of strikes against them already. And with the right training and teaching, they will overcome…
But equally, you know, you’re teaching your children. And what we need to be teaching our children is what we want to see out of our children. And I don’t think you want them to be screaming and hollering at you. I don’t think that’s what we desire out of our children.
And I’ve seen that, I’ve seen the most, the people who I actually hold up as being like Sarah and Abraham, I have seen the control they have over their own selves and how they can teach their children and no matter what their children are doing it seems like they never lose control. They always just keep quietly teaching and pretty soon the child turns and starts to doing what they want him to do or her.
But, be patient because the children are not in a perfect state of mind right now. And they will become that with time and with effort, and the Strength of Yahweh, of course. With Yahweh all things are possible.
But look at Mattithyah (Matthew) 6 and notice verse 12. He says, Forgive our debts… This is a prayer, when He’s teaching His Disciples how to pray. And this is Mattithyah 6:12. And He says, Forgive us of our debt… That word debt there, it’s not like we owe Yahweh money. Which we do, if we’ve stolen our tithes, but that’s not what it means.
It means labor. It actually means, forgive us for not performing our jobs. It’s a due, moral, faults, but also it says, something owed, a due, moral, a fault, a debt. It says, Of sin as a debt. Because it demands expiation and thus payment by way of punishment and… Here’s the one I was hunting… the debtor… You see the word debtor? … as we forgive our debtors… The debtor is not someone who owed you something, but one guilty of neglect or violation of duty… One guilty of neglect or violation of duty.
Of course, we get angry. This is something that makes us angry when someone lets down on their duty, because it causes other people trouble. It sets back the Work. It costs money.
But notice, He’s talking about forgiveness here, quickly forgiving. Forgive us of our debts as we… As we. Now if we don’t forgive the person for this, then we hold bitterness against them. And Yahweh—we cut ourselves off from His Face, as Cain did from Yahweh. He got angry and cut himself off or got embarrassed about his sins and failed to show up for his meeting, his Appointment with Yahweh…
Hold your place right there and turn to Leviticus 19:18. Both sides are tested when something bad takes place. Now this is the law that Yahshua is speaking of here in Mattithyah 6. Where He says, Do not seek revenge not bear a grudge against one of your own people; but you shall love your brother… or sister …as yourself. I am Yahweh.
Luke 17:3 He says, So be on your guard! This is Luke 17. Now, you might have missed those first few words! … So be on your guard… And when you let your guards down there’s where you’re going to have the trouble.
Luke 17:3. Now be on your guard! If your brother trespasses against you, rebuke him… Yes, rebuke him. …But if he repents, forgive him… It’s that simple and you better do it. It’s hard to do but you can do it and get in the habit of it and it becomes less hard, less difficult.
Verse 4, And if he trespasses against you seven times in one day… Now, if you’re stressed out or the man is stressed out, seven times in one day it might get a little bit irritable after a while. But you can still do it and there He shows you.
And in one place… He told His Disciples seventy times seven. So, that’s like all day long!
