Unforgiveness. The Cancer of the kingdom.
Someone once asked me what is the most important foundation of the kingdom, my answer was simple, it was for givenness. unforgiveness is the cancer of the kingdom, Let me give you a quick definition of cancer,
Cancer is the uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells in the body. Cancerous cells are also called malignant cells.
The kingdom of God is built up of many believers we called it the body of Christ every part of this body has different functioning but is all Part of the same body, Paul talks about the body let’s see what the Bible says,
The human body has many parts, but the many parts make up one whole body. So it is with the body of Christ. (1 Corinthians 12:12 NLT).
The human body is a good example of the kingdom of God, God’s kingdom works similar to the human body (spiritually). When the human body is nourished all parts of the body works together in unity and singleness of mine, there are many things that can attack the body physically such as Koles the flu various diseases and elements but I want to talk about one I think is very important that is unforgiveness, and I called this the cancer of the kingdom. Unforgiveness causes unnecessary heart aches, unnecessary pains, unnecessary burdens, it will stagnated your growth, you cannot move forward, your prayer life will be hinder your spiritual walk will be hindered, it will always calls you to be empty on the inside and bring Shane in your environment, to forgive someone or to forgive yourself is never out of reach, this unforgiveness destroys the very core of our existence, when cancer enters the body it begins to attack your immune system the body becomes dysfunctional it’s the same way spiritual when you develop unforgiveness it brings along pride pride will make you feel like you’ve done nothing wrong it’s the other person’s fault this will hinder you in many areas, let’s see what the Bible says about unforgiveness.
“And whenever you stand praying, if you have anything against anyone, forgive him, that your Father in heaven may also forgive you your trespasses. But if you do not forgive, neither will your Father in heaven forgive your trespasses.” (Mark 11:25, 26 NKJV).
This type of cancer is a threat to the whole body not just you individual, whether or not it’s in your past our your presents it may have been a love one that has hurt you someone evening in your own family like a mother or father or coworker forgiveness knees to take place the kingdom is strong and powerful there is a cure for this cancer that the world has rejected the cure is Jesus Christ of Nazareth if you allow him he would Cleanced you inside and out and give you the strength to overcome your pass and be forgiven but there is something you must do yourself first and then forgive everybody that has done you wrong and then forgive everybody that you have done wrong and allow the Holy Spirit to bring peace in your life if you can’t learn to forgive the Bible says that you cannot be forgiven yourself.
