Bless The Lord And Forget None Of His Benefits Part II
Who forgives all your iniquities. Psalm 103:3
The Hebrew word for iniquity defines it as guilt worthy of punishment and a sin that defines us, in other words, something in your life that is an obvious transgression in the eyes of the Lord. This iniquity that defines us is a stain on our soul that only the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ can wash away!
Galatians 5:16-21 lists many of the iniquities that are called by the apostle Paul works or deeds of the flesh that are contrary to the Holy Spirit and hinder us from walking in the Spirit. These sins must be crucified with their passions and desires in order for us to inherit the kingdom of God. Many of these iniquities were passed down from the generations of our unfaithful ancestors through the bloodline, and when we were born, we inherited them as a generational curse upon our life.
When Jesus was beaten He was bruised for our iniquities, thus He bled inside His body, cleansing us forever from our sins, transgressions, and inherited iniquities, breaking the curse, cleansing the stain and setting us free from condemnation. Jesus took it upon Himself to take the punishment that we deserved by standing in for us to whom it was do.
Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered. Blessed is the man to whom the Lord does not impute (charge his account with) iniquity, and in whose spirit there is no deceit. Psalm 32:1,2
