This post is the result of a dream I had this week. In it the Lord showed me some areas of forgiveness I still needed to walk out. As he ministered to me, this word poured from me with an urgency to share it. Yes, I know it is personal, but we are all on the same journey and face common struggles. We are all being perfected in him daily. May it bless you today. No offense is worth risking unanswered prayers and deeper spiritual maturation. - Theresa Harvard Johnson
I heard Father say: I know you have been praying and asking me for breakthrough. I heard you. I listened. I have answered, but you are not able to see my answer at this present time. Beloved, I am waiting to rescue you. You should know that breakthrough is in your hands: "It begins with forgiveness, a deep forgiveness from the bones.... I am rending them of past offense." Yes, I know you say that it is finished and that there is nothing left to forgive. In your own strength, this has become truth. Beloved! LISTEN! I SEE ALL... and I see where you have shut down in fear of what will be revealed, in fear of the pain and from a place of self-righteousness and control. I am here to help you let it go. To enable you to hear and think clearly. Did I not say that we must forgive seventy-times-seven? This is through the strength of my Spirit, not by you own will or your own way. Why do you believe it is a sin or an aggravation to continue the process? I AM walking you through this season. You beloved are mind. I will have all of you.
Any door that I open to continue the forgiveness process is a door to MY heart - that place of which you long. There are things, even concerning you that YOU have yet to discover, to know in me. I know the secrets to your heart that are yet to be revealed to you. I am taking you gently in. Come with me. Release that key that you are holding. Quiet yourself, and make use of my Spirit within you. Quiet yourself, and enter into that listening place with me.... and I will show you my Glory.
For if you forgive others their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you, but if you do not forgive others their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses. Beloved, I do not want to see your destiny hindered because you are not able to let go of the blame and offense. Forgiveness will release your breakthrough in this season. Amen.

Matthew 6:14-15 CJB, "For if you forgive others their offenses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you; but if you do not forgive others their offenses, your heavenly Father will not forgive yours."
1 John 2:11 CJB, "But the person who hates his brother is in the dark — yes, he is walking in the dark, and he doesn’t know where he is going, because the darkness has blinded his eyes."
Matthew 5:43-48 CJB, "You have heard that our fathers were told, ‘Love your neighbor[a] — and hate your enemy.’ But I tell you, love your enemies! Pray for those who persecute you! Then you will become children of your Father in heaven. For he makes his sun shine on good and bad people alike, and he sends rain to the righteous and the unrighteous alike. What reward do you get if you love only those who love you? Why, even tax-collectors do that! And if you are friendly only to your friends, are you doing anything out of the ordinary? Even the Goyim do that! Therefore, be perfect, just as your Father in heaven is perfect."
