For Those Who Believe



For Those Who Believe
Author: Mark V. Markov

If you don't forgive others
Your Heavenly Father will not forgive you
The words of Jesus Christ to us
To always forgive others
And leave it in the hands
In the hands of the living God

For those who believe
That they are under grace
And they don't need to live
In obedience to God
Thinking that Jesus payed for their sins
So that they now can live a life
Practicing sin and that God doesn't mind.

The word of God says to us
That God still desires
For all that believe in Him
To live their life in obedience to Holy Trinity
In obedience to Elohim.

Practicing doing right
To the best of their ability
In accordance to His instruction
That is in the Holy Scriptures

If one thinks
That they are under grace
No matter what wrong they do
And that they will still be saved

The forgiveness instruction
Is there to remind us
If you don't forgive
You will not be forgiven by God

If you are not forgiven by God
How can you consider being saved?
If you are not forgiven,
Then you cannot be with God.

Also Hebrews chapter ten
Verses twenty six
Through thirty one states
You cannot deliberately sin
For there is no grace to cover

As the first book of John
Chapter three verse nine states
He who is born of God
Does not live a life practicing sin.

From time to time
We make mistakes
Sometimes we struggle
Sometimes we fall
That is different.
If we confess our sins
Ask for forgiveness
And continue our best
To live in obedience to God's instruction
We will be forgiven

It's just that
We cannot live a life
Deliberately practicing sin
We must live a life
Trying our very best
To do what God instructed
Practicing doing right
Living in the teaching of Jesus Christ
And being faithful to Elohim all of our life.

If you don't forgive others
Your Heavenly Father will not forgive you
The words of Jesus Christ to us
To always forgive others
And leave it in the hands
In the hands of the living God.

For those who believe
That they are under grace
And they don't need to live
In obedience to God
Thinking that Jesus payed for their sins
So that they now can live a life
Practicing sin and that God doesn't mind.

The word of God says to us
That God still desires
For all that believe in Him
To live their life in obedience to Holy Trinity
In obedience to Elohim...


Matthew 6:12 (ESV)

and forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.

Matthew 6:14-15 (ESV)

14 For if you forgive others their trespasses, your Heavenly Father will also forgive you,

15 but if you do not forgive others their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

Matthew 18:34-35 (ESV)

34 And in anger his master delivered him to the jailers, until he should pay all his debt.

35 So also my heavenly Father will do to every one of you, if you do not forgive your brother from your heart."

Mark 11:25 (ESV)

And whenever you stand praying, forgive, if you have anything against anyone, so that your Father also who is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses."

Luke 11:4 (ESV)

and forgive us our sins, for we ourselves forgive everyone who is indebted to us. And lead us not into temptation."

1 John 1:9 (ESV)

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

1 John 3:9 (ESV)

9 No one born of God makes a practice of sinning, for God's seed abides in him; and he cannot keep on sinning, because he has been born of God.


Hebrews 10:26-31 (ESV)

26 For if we go on sinning deliberately after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins,
27 but a fearful expectation of judgment, and a fury of fire that will consume the adversaries.
28 Anyone who has set aside the law of Moses dies without mercy on the evidence of two or three witnesses.
29 How much worse punishment, do you think, will be deserved by the one who has trampled underfoot the Son of God,
and has profaned the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified, and has outraged the Spirit of grace?
 30 For we know him who said, "Vengeance is mine; I will repay." And again, "The Lord will judge his people."
31 It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.

Exodus 20:6 (ESV)

6 but showing steadfast love to thousands of those who love me and keep my commandments.

Exodus 20:1-17 (ESV)

The Ten Commandments

1 And God spoke all these words, saying,

2 "I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery.

3 "You shall have no other gods before me.

4 "You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.

5 You shall not bow down to them or serve them, for I the Lord your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and the fourth generation of those who hate me,

6 but showing steadfast love to thousands of those who love me and keep my commandments.

7 "You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain, for the Lord will not hold him guiltless who takes his name in vain.

8 "Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.

9 Six days you shall labor, and do all your work,

10 but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the Lord your God. On it you shall not do any work, you, or your son, or your daughter, your male servant, or your female servant, or your livestock, or the sojourner who is within your gates.

11 For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested on the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy.

12 "Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long in the land that the Lord your God is giving you.

13 "You shall not murder.

14 "You shall not commit adultery.

15 "You shall not steal.

16 "You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.

17 "You shall not covet your neighbor's house; you shall not covet your neighbor's wife, or his male servant, or his female servant, or his ox, or his donkey, or anything that is your neighbor's."

The last commandment in verse 17 is

You shall not yearn to possess or have something that belongs to someone else.
By wanting in your heart and mind
to somehow take away from your neighbor who has something that you do not


Exodus 35:1-3 (ESV)

Sabbath Regulations

1 Moses assembled all the congregation of the people of Israel and said to them,
"These are the things that the LORD has commanded you to do.

2 Six days work shall be done, but on the seventh day you shall have a Sabbath of solemn rest,
holy to the LORD. Whoever does any work on it shall be put to death.

3 You shall kindle no fire in all your dwelling places on the Sabbath day."


Matthew 22:36-40 (ESV)

36 "Teacher, which is the great commandment in the Law?"

37 And he said to him, "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.

38 This is the great and first commandment.

39 And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself.

40 On these two commandments depend all the Law and the Prophets."


Mark 12:30-34 (ESV)

30 And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’

31 The second is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these."

32 And the scribe said to him, "You are right, Teacher. You have truly said that he is one, and there is no other besides him.

33 And to love him with all the heart and with all the understanding and with all the strength, and to love one's neighbor as oneself, is much more than all whole burnt offerings and sacrifices."

34 And when Jesus saw that he answered wisely, he said to him, "You are not far from the kingdom of God." And after that no one dared to ask him any more questions.


Luke 10:25-37 (ESV)

25 And behold, a lawyer stood up to put him to the test, saying, "Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?"

26 He said to him, "What is written in the Law? How do you read it?"

27 And he answered, "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind, and your neighbor as yourself."

28 And he said to him, "You have answered correctly; do this, and you will live."

29 But he, desiring to justify himself, said to Jesus, "And who is my neighbor?"

30 Jesus replied, "A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and he fell among robbers, who stripped him and beat him and departed, leaving him half dead.

31 Now by chance a priest was going down that road, and when he saw him he passed by on the other side.

32 So likewise a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side.

33 But a Samaritan, as he journeyed, came to where he was, and when he saw him, he had compassion.

34 He went to him and bound up his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. Then he set him on his own animal and brought him to an inn and took care of him.

35 And the next day he took out two denarii[c] and gave them to the innkeeper, saying, ‘Take care of him, and whatever more you spend, I will repay you when I come back.’

36 Which of these three, do you think, proved to be a neighbor to the man who fell among the robbers?"

37 He said, "The one who showed him mercy." And Jesus said to him, "You go, and do likewise."



Deuteronomy 4:12-13 (ESV)

12 Then the Lord spoke to you out of the midst of the fire. You heard the sound of words, but saw no form; there was only a voice.

13 And he declared to you his covenant, which he commanded you to perform, that is, the Ten Commandments, and he wrote them on two tablets of stone.

3 Remember, then, what you received and heard. Keep it, and repent. If you will not wake up, I will come like a thief, and you will not know at what hour I will come against you.

4 Yet you have still a few names in Sardis, people who have not soiled their garments, and they will walk with me in white, for they are worthy.

5 The one who conquers will be clothed thus in white garments,
and I will never blot his name out of the book of life.
I will confess his name before my Father and before his angels.

6 He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.’
