13 Howbeit when He, the Spirit of truth, is come, He will guide you into all truth: for He shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever He shall hear, that shall He speak: and He will shew you things to come.
14 He shall glorify Me: for He shall receive of Mine, and shall shew it unto you. (John 16:13-14)
4 Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace. (Gal 5:4)
We are so busy trying to be right and proving we are right, that we forget what it means to be righteous. There is a difference. Jews were so busy trying to be right, so when the Righteousness came, they missed it. In the midst of it you stop listening to the Holy Spirit and start listening to the voice of men and the voice of your conscience and the voice of the law. If I am not led by the Spirit, by the voice of God, I will not make it.
1 Sing, O barren, thou that didst not bear; break forth into singing, and cry aloud, thou that didst not travail with child: for more are the children of the desolate than the children of the married wife, saith the LORD.
2 Enlarge the place of thy tent, and let them stretch forth the curtains of thine habitations: spare not, lengthen thy cords, and strengthen thy stakes;
3 For thou shalt break forth on the right hand and on the left; and thy seed shall inherit the Gentiles, and make the desolate cities to be inhabited. (Isa 54:1-3 KJV)
Finding rest for your soul. How to have hope and to give people hope. If people lose hope, they will fail, because they lose their soul. Souls are lost in the world because they do not have hope.
Your soul (mind, will and feelings) has to be anchored. Hope is the anchor to the soul – Hen 6:19. “Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast, and which entereth into that within the veil” (Heb 6:19 KJV).
When people do not have grace, they major on problems and minor on solutions. It makes your world negative.
How to open any gate and how to set any captive free
Our decisions need to be backed up by prayer. Our faith has to be backed up by the fear of the Lord.
By mercy and truth iniquity is purged: and by the fear of the LORD men depart from evil. (Proverbs 16:6 KJV)
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding. (Proverbs 9:10 KJV)
By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith. (Hebrews 11:7 KJV)

17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;
18 They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.
19 So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God.
20 And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen. (Mar 16:17-20 KJV)

6 Then the children of Judah came unto Joshua in Gilgal: and Caleb the son of Jephunneh the Kenezite said unto him, Thou knowest the thing that the LORD said unto Moses the man of God concerning me and thee in Kadeshbarnea.
7 Forty years old was I when Moses the servant of the LORD sent me from Kadeshbarnea to espy out the land; and I brought him word again as it was in mine heart.
8 Nevertheless my brethren that went up with me made the heart of the people melt: but I wholly followed the LORD my God.
9 And Moses sware on that day, saying, Surely the land whereon thy feet have trodden shall be thine inheritance, and thy children’s for ever, because thou hast wholly followed the LORD my God.
10 And now, behold, the LORD hath kept me alive, as he said, these forty and five years, even since the LORD spake this word unto Moses, while the children of Israel wandered in the wilderness: and now, lo, I am this day fourscore and five years old.
11 As yet I am as strong this day as I was in the day that Moses sent me: as my strength was then, even so is my strength now, for war, both to go out, and to come in.
12 Now therefore give me this mountain, whereof the LORD spake in that day; for thou heardest in that day how the Anakims were there, and that the cities were great and fenced: if so be the LORD will be with me, then I shall be able to drive them out, as the LORD said.
13 And Joshua blessed him, and gave unto Caleb the son of Jephunneh Hebron for an inheritance. (Jos 14:6-13 KJV)
The safest place for us to be is in the will of God.
1 Furthermore then we beseech you, brethren, and exhort you by the Lord Jesus, that as ye have received of us how ye ought to walk and to please God, so ye would abound more and more.
2 For ye know what commandments we gave you by the Lord Jesus.
3 For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication:
4 That every one of you should know how to possess his vessel in sanctification and honour;
5 Not in the lust of concupiscence, even as the Gentiles which know not God:
6 That no man go beyond and defraud his brother in any matter: because that the Lord is the avenger of all such, as we also have forewarned you and testified.
7 For God hath not called us unto uncleanness, but unto holiness.
8 He therefore that despiseth, despiseth not man, but God, who hath also given unto us his holy Spirit.
9 But as touching brotherly love ye need not that I write unto you: for ye yourselves are taught of God to love one another.
10 And indeed ye do it toward all the brethren which are in all Macedonia: but we beseech you, brethren, that ye increase more and more;
11 And that ye study to be quiet, and to do your own business, and to work with your own hands, as we commanded you;
12 That ye may walk honestly toward them that are without, and that ye may have lack of nothing.
13 But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.
14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.
15 For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.
16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words. (1 Thess 4:1-18 KJV)

1 I have no need that I write unto you.
2 For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.
3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.
4 But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.
5 Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.
6 Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober.
7 For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night.
8 But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation.
9 For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,
10 Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him.
11 Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also ye do.
12 And we beseech you, brethren, to know them which labour among you, and are over you in the Lord, and admonish you;
13 And to esteem them very highly in love for their work’s sake. And be at peace among yourselves.
14 Now we exhort you, brethren, warn them that are unruly, comfort the feebleminded, support the weak, be patient toward all men.
15 See that none render evil for evil unto any man; but ever follow that which is good, both among yourselves, and to all men.
16 Rejoice evermore.
17 Pray without ceasing.
18 In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
19 Quench not the Spirit.
20 Despise not prophesyings.
21 Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.
22 Abstain from all appearance of evil.
23 And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
24 Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it.
(1Thess 5:1-24 KJV)
Suppose a person in your neighborhood gets drunk on Friday nights, then beats his wife and children. Everybody knows about it, but no one knows what to do with it. One hundred people already agreed that he is a drunkard and a violent person.
“Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven” (Mat 18:19 KJV)
When one hundred people agreed, there a lot of those two who agreed. They retain sins of this person against him and consequently he cannot change. It is necessary that someone would remit his sins off of him so that he will be able to change.
“Whose soever sins ye remit, they are remitted unto them; and whose soever sins ye retain, they are retained” (John 20:23 KJV)
When people meet you for the first time, they start a file on you, and then they enter in that file your character traits and retain them, they remember them. People easier remember your bad things in your character, than good things, and keep it against you. What if it is not a guy who beats his wife but you? You lost your temper, did something stupid, and now a number of people retain those sins against you. How to be released from it? The sins have to be remitted off from you.
No one really owes you an apology, because Jesus already paid the price. It is good to come up to someone and say, “I am sorry”. It is necessary, but the revelation is that they don’t owe you an apology because God already paid for the sin they committed.
Doing nothing is not really a sin, but when you become good at it, it is sin.
If you do not manage a certain area, it will manage you.

Remitting and Retaining. #2
You shall receive power after the Holy Spirit comes upon you.
22 And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and saith unto them, Receive ye the Holy Ghost: 22 Whose soever sins ye remit, they are remitted unto them; and whose soever sins ye retain, they are retained. (John 20:22-23 KJV)

Remitting and Retaining. #3
Remitting and retaining have a lot to do with death and life. If you retain what people did wrong to you, you are the one that suffers. You should have remitted it. Remit is to release, to forgive.
Binding and Loosing are the keys. They are either right or wrong keys.
Why are people mad? Why are you mad? Why do you get mad? It is a choice. It’s all in the keys. You may use a wrong key to start your day. Bible talks about binding and loosing, good and bad, blessing and cursing. You are either binding yourself to life or you are binding yourself to death.
Marriage is a s sweet as you make it. It depends on how much sugar you have.

1 My brethren, be not many masters, knowing that we shall receive the greater condemnation.
2 For in many things we offend all. If any man offend not in word, the same is a perfect man, and able also to bridle the whole body.
3 Behold, we put bits in the horses’ mouths, that they may obey us; and we turn about their whole body.
4 Behold also the ships, which though they be so great, and are driven of fierce winds, yet are they turned about with a very small helm, whithersoever the governor listeth.
5 Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindleth!
6 And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell.
7 For every kind of beasts, and of birds, and of serpents, and of things in the sea, is tamed, and hath been tamed of mankind:
8 But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison.
9 Therewith bless we God, even the Father; and therewith curse we men, which are made after the similitude of God.
10 Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be.
11 Doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and bitter?
12 Can the fig tree, my brethren, bear olive berries? either a vine, figs? so can no fountain both yield salt water and fresh.
13 Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? let him shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom.
14 But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth.
15 This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish.
16 For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.
17 But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.
18 And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace. (Jam 3:1-18 KJV)
Binding and loosing are the keys. People won’t drive you crazy if you do not give them the keys. It is all in choice and decisions what you are going to bind yourself to and what you are going to loose yourself from. There are things we have to be bound to and things we have to be loosed from.

Testimony Related to Kevin Campbell’s message “Your Character Remitted. #1”
When I was a teenager, I started using index cards with names of my schoolmates. There I entered their character traits, mostly flaws. When Pastor Kevin Campbell said that we keep files on people in our minds, I kept them not only in my mind, but on paper also.
In 1987 I met a person who spoke only good things about people, he judged or condemned nobody. I felt a desire to be like him. I had not met a person whom I would like to imitate prior to that. I began to imitate him, and there came an amazing liberation. I began to love most people, stopped fearing them, when I communicate with them, there was a confidence that the good will win.
If you do not forgive someone’s sins, you retain them. You are a retainer. It means they owe it to you. God says, “This is a lie. Their debt was paid in full by My Son’s death.” If Stephen would not forgiven Saul, there would not have been Apostle Paul. Stephen would have been held accountable for Saul’s sins.
