HEARD: What's the story called? Meet again. Reconciliation. Wound. Peace maker.


[I thought about a non Christian business associate that had been angry with me and I suddenly realized that her wound over the falling out was deeper than her anger.]


HEARD: Exactly. Show her you care.


Obedient. A new set of rules. Far reaching effects. Greater grace is coming. For you. Even though you don't know what's coming.


PRAYER: Lord grant all those who have had falling outs in relationships to meet again for reconciliation, so that there may be an opportunity to be peacemakers, showing that we care. Grant that the old wounds will be purged and cleansed all for the sake of love. And may we be obedient to follow You in our relationships, so that the fruit of such will have far reaching effect. We thank You for the new grace that is coming to our future, even though we dont know what is coming. in Jesus Name. We commit these things to You.


Matt 5:9 NKJV

Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.


Matt 5:23-25 NKJV

Therefore if you bring your gift to the altar, and there remember that your brother has something against you, 24 leave your gift there before the altar, and go your way. First be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your gift. 25 Agree with your adversary quickly, while you are on the way with him, lest your adversary deliver you to the judge, the judge hand you over to the officer, and you be thrown into prison.




KJV Matthew 5:23 Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee; 24 Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled  to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift.


1259 dialla,ssw $dialla,ssomai´ diallasso {dee-al-las'-so}

Meaning: 1) to change 2) to change the mind of anyone, to reconcile 3) to be reconciled, to renew friendship with one


Origin: from 1223 and 236; TDNT - 1:253,40; v

Usage: AV - reconcile 1; 1


UPDATE: I had her Christmas present and took it to her 6 months late to show her that I really cared for her. This really cooled her anger over a business mistake that cost her money, where I had felt wrongly accused. Now 6 years later, we still joyously hug when we run into each other and enjoy catching up on all the news.


It was interesting to me, because a few years after the reconciliation, she had a friend who was dieing and she called me and asked me if I would pray for her friend. The world may not say a lot about your testimony, but when they are in trouble, they know who to call for prayer.


I was able to witness on the phone to her friend in the hospital, and asked her if I could pray for her. Her friend was too weak to talk, so I really dont know exactly how she responded. What if that friend was kept from hell, because I had the courage to try to reconcile and bring that Christmas gift to someone whose wound was deeper than her anger?



RHEMA 6/19/07 RECONCILIATION: Forgive Pride


HEARD: Comfortable. She made it comfortable for me to reconcile. Access. Mellow out. What is needed. Relationship. True. Adopted. What kind? The kind that you can come home to.


HEARD: My friend, take your time, we missed you. Direct speech. The pride, it is an issue. To admit that. This is where there are corrections, can I help you?


HEARD: Training. Now watch what I will do. Rise up My love. Forsake all the sins that have weighed you down in the past. It's all done. It's all gone. It's all covered. It's not there any more. See what's left?


PIX: I saw a clean white sheet that had filtered all the junk through it and there was only one thing that had not filtered through. It was a precious little baby sitting up by itself and smiling so beautifully.


1 John 2:12 NKJV

I write to you, little children, Because your sins are forgiven you for His name's sake.




I understand you were offended and it hurt. Let Me bring the pain to the surface and cleanse it from any infection. I know it is difficult, but the only way to preserve your own freedom from this offense is to forgive. Whether the offense was intentional or not, to nurse your feelings will only cause the wound to grow and become infected.


Unforgiveness binds the soul and keeps the offense fresh in the mind and heart. Over and over again the enemy will bring it to memory and build upon it, expanding its pain by resurrecting other offenses. Unforgiveness also releases evil forces to be sent to the one who has offended. This causes an even greater gap between yourself and that person, for that person is driven even further into creating more of the same kind of offenses.


Forgiveness is a choice not necessarily a feeling. Forgiveness says, “This person has incurred a debt, and I release him of it.” I cover his sin and say, “Please Lord, do not charge it to his account.” When you release someone from offense, you release yourself as well. It allows Me to do My work and keeps you from harm. Let it go and bring it to Me. I AM waiting.


“Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.” (Matthew 6:11-13)





To put away,

Omit, pass over or leave out,


Forsake, leave behind,

Overlook, lay aside,

Remit, yield up... the sin, offense, stumbling block, trespass, evil deed is

Gone and left behind, I wont carry it any more.

I choose to let go of what offends and fails to meet my expectations,

Valuing my freedom and their liberty more than punishment...

Experiencing a new heart where angry bitterness once reigned.


Rom 4:7-8 AMP

Blessed and happy and to be envied are those whose iniquities are forgiven and whose sins are covered up and completely buried. Blessed and happy and to be envied is the person of whose sin the Lord will take no account nor reckon it against him. {Ps 32:1,2.}


Matt 18:21-23 NKJV

Then Peter came to Him and said, "Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? Up to seven times?" Jesus said to him, "I do not say to you, up to seven times, but up to seventy times seven.



John 20:20-23 NKJV

When He had said this, He showed them His hands and His side. Then the disciples were glad when they saw the Lord. 21 So Jesus said to them again, "Peace to you! As the Father has sent Me, I also send you." 22 And when He had said this, He breathed on them, and said to them, "Receive the Holy Spirit. 23 If you forgive {863} the sins of any, they are forgiven {863} them; if you retain the sins of any, they are retained."
