ABC’s of Repentance

What’s a good first step for you in repentance? We are in the middle of a huge movement for repentance, across Christian denominations, across national boundaries, to bring many souls into Christ’s Kingdom in these end times, and to refresh and rekindle the body of Christ to be ready as His Bride for His soon return. (Revelation 19:7).

Repentance is God’s gift to every human. It’s the first word Jesus spoke when He began preaching, a key to eternal salvation. (Matthew 4:17). It’s also a wonderful process—painful to our egos but still wonderful—by which He participates with us through His Holy Spirit to transform the “old man” into holiness (2 Corinthians 7:1), into His image through sincere repentance. In Revelation 3:19-21 the Risen Christ gives us His instructions by which each of us can become an overcomer and sit with Him on His throne, as He overcame as now sits with the Father on His throne: be zealous to repent (verse 19); invite Him to “dine” with you (verse 20); become an overcomer to sit on His throne (verse 21).

It’s His loving assignment to restore our souls and to lead us in His paths of righteousness for His name’s sake. (Psalm 23:3).

Repentance is not punishment; it’s an intimate-building, liberating, deeply joyful process available to every believer thanks to the Lord. (please see the article under Resources, “Forty Five Minutes to Joy Using Repentance”).

If one very reluctant man, Jonah, could trigger massive repentance in a wicked pagan nation, causing the Lord to relent from the disaster He was about to bring upon them (Jonah 3:10), any one of us, turning from the flesh and the world towards His Purity, just might be the additional heart turned to Him that will move His heart to forgive our sins and heal our nations. (2 Chronicles 7:13-15).

In that passion for repentance, please join us for the next day of repentance.

And here’s a simple reminder how you can be a voice for repentance in your home, your ministry, and your community:


evisit the concept of repentance in Scripture.  It’s a privilege, a purification process, not a punishment, by which any of us believers can become an overcomer. (Revelation 3:19-21).  Joy, not judgment, follows repentance.


veryday add repentance to your prayer time.


urity is the goal:  repent to be more like Christ, to be ready as His Bride for His soon return.  (Revelation 19:7)


nlist other leaders and believers in your community to use the resources on the website, to meet in your homes to repent together, and to participate in the various days of repentance held each year, especially the global day of repentance, the day of repentance for all nations, held each year on the Hebrew day of atonement. (Leviticus 23: 27,31: “ it shall be a holy convocation for you; you shall afflict your souls…You shall do no manner of work; it shall be a statute forever throughout your generations in all your dwellings.”)


ehemiah, a man like the rest of us, is a good model for repentance. We see in chapter one, before he received the Lord’s anointing to rebuild the walls, he prayed, he fasted, he confessed sins, repenting for himself, for his family, and for his nation.  He later had to observe the leaders and priests writing a “sure covenant” to follow the Lord (Nehemiah 9:38)


urn away from the flesh and the world to your Lord Jesus Christ who is worthy to be followed in His Purity.  Teach others about the privilege and power of repentance— not just as a key to joining the Kingdom of the Living God but as a daily purification process, with the Holy Spirit’s loving, always forgiving, help.  (Revelation 3:10-21; 1 John 1:8-9: “ If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”)
