We are given eyes to see, ears to hear and a heart that can understand and turn from sin and be converted and be healed spiritually. This is the miracle of a real repentant heart.
II Corinthians 7:10 – For (godly) sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the world worketh death.
Real repentance is when the Set Apart Spirit convicts us of truth in such a way that we are truly pricked in our hearts.
Acts 2:36-38 – Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that Elohim hath made the same Yahshua, whom ye have crucified, both Adonai and Messiah.
37 Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do?
38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Yahshua Messiah for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Set Apart Spirit.
Verse 36 says we have all crucified Yahshua. He had to die for even our smallest sins.
Romans 6:23 says the wages of sin is death. Unless a person really repents and is baptized, they have the death penalty hanging over their heads.
How does one really feel who is being brought to true repentance?
Job 42:1-6 – Then Job answered YAH, and said,
2 I know that thou canst do every thing, and that no thought can be withholden from thee.
3 Who is he that hideth counsel without knowledge? therefore have I uttered that I understood not; things too wonderful for me, which I knew not.
4 Hear, I beseech thee, and I will speak: I will demand of thee, and declare thou unto me.
5 I have heard of thee by the hearing of the ear: but now mine eye seeth thee.
6 Wherefore I abhor myself, and repent in dust and ashes.
Job 1:8 – And YAH said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth Elohim, and escheweth evil?
In Job 1:8, even YAH said of Job – he was perfect and upright. This was from an outward, physical appearance. Yet Job, in his heart, was not right with YAH. He needed to be humbled to see himself in comparison to his Creator. He could not see his own self-righteousness. In verses 5 and 6 it took a great humbling for Job to become spiritually sighted enough to see how Great YAH was and how insignificant he was.
Mathew 19:16-17 – And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life?
17 And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, Elohim: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.
