           The spirit of unforgiveness is a spiritual acid that eats through the spirit within us. The spirit of unforgiveness is a supernatural cancer that slowly and deliberately eats you up. There is a long time period between the time you are hurt and the time you forgive the person who hurt you.

Forgiveness: Letting go of grudges and bitterness.  Forgiveness must come from the very core of your heart.  It is not forgiveness if it is not from the heart.  Lip service forgiveness does absolutely nothing for you or the offender.  So many that sit in My house are digging their own graves because of {no forgiveness} or {false forgiveness.}  Who or what gives you the right not to forgive others?  Did I not forgive you when I hung on the cross?  Did I not forgive you when I cried, “Forgive them, Father, they know not what they do?” Luke 23:34.

You wander around blaming Me for your curses when in fact, you bring the curses on your bodies yourself because you refuse to Love and Forgive as My Word Commands.

You cannot be fruitful and multiply as long as the spirit of unforgiveness abides deep within your soul.  Unforgiveness causes you to walk under the curse, never able to walk in the blessings of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.  What in you causes you to look at those who despitefully used you with so much disdain?  Do I look at you through those tainted eyes?  NO!  I look at you with eyes of love and mercy.  I understand that the enemy is afoot, and he uses whomsoever to destroy My children.  Why can you not understand the very same thing?  How can you teach others of My Love when you yourself cannot walk in it?  You cannot say you love Me if you refuse to forgive others.

Bitterness is a root of evil that must be plucked out instantly.  It cannot be allowed to fester for one second.  The enemy knows that if he can get a root of bitterness–that produces unforgiveness to remain in the soul, he has you hook, line, and sinker.

Children, you cannot call yourself a child of God if you cannot forgive and walk away from the pain {totally free,} releasing the offender so they can be freed of their guilt.  When you will not forgive, you hold yourself in bondage in the throes of darkness.

If you’re unforgiving, you might: Bring anger and bitterness into every relationship and new experience, Become so wrapped up in the wrong that you can’t enjoy the present, Become depressed or anxious, Feel that your life lacks meaning or purpose, or that you’re at odds with your spiritual beliefs.  Lose valuable and enriching connectedness with others.

Matthew 6:14-15 (NKJV) 14 “For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. 15 But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.
