Unforgiveness: Spiritual Poison
Unforgiveness is the single most popular poison that the enemy uses against God’s people, and it is one of the deadliest poisons a person can take spiritually. It causes everything from mental depression, to health problems such as cancer and arthritis. I’m not saying that in every single case of cancer, it is due to unforgiveness, but I am saying that it can cause cancer. Cancer comes from the devil, scientist can’t explain it, doctors don’t understand where it comes from; it’s the symptoms of a curse. God allowed the Israelites to face diseases and sickness when they disobeyed Him Deut 28:58-61, and when they would turn back to Him, He would heal their land and take sickness from their midst Exodus 23:25, Deut 7:15. In the New Testament, Jesus gave us two commandments Matthew 22:37-40, and if we break those, we can be opened up to curses, just as the people in the Old Testament were. Jesus never came to abolish the law Matthew 5:17, but He did come to set us free from the curse of the law Galatians 3:13, meaning, Jesus paid the price so we can be set free from any curses we may have come under.Two commandments given to us by God Matthew 22:37-40, “Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.”Jesus gave us very important commandments to follow; one of them was to love one another, as He has loved us John 15:12. Love is the exact opposite of unforgiveness, envy, jealousy, hate, pride and bitterness. You can’t truly love somebody and hold bitterness or unforgiveness against him or her at the same time.
