Sometimes knowledge is power, 2 Chronicles 1:12.
Sometimes it’s money, Proverbs 24:4. Sometimes it is your judge, 1 Samuel 2:3. and sometimes it provides a way to make a living, Exodus 31:3-5. Knowledge, Knowledge, Knowledge, everyone wants it, everyone needs it, and most humans waste a lifetime acquiring it, because they do not realize that all real knowledge begins when you have a proper view of who I AM? Proverbs 1:7.
However many believers do not know that knowledge can turn deadly and slowly choke the spiritual life out of them and send them to an early grave and even a firey hell! If you know to do good, and don’t do it, to you it is sin, James 4:17. All sin will not send you to hell, but every known and ignored sin will cost you, both in this live and the life to come, 1 Corinthians 3:13-15.
However knowledge becomes real deadly and reverses everything when you think you know more than Me! That’s right, when you know Me as savior, and begin to take Me for grant it, and stop glorifying Me as God, you become unthankful and vain in your imagination, that’s when your foolish heart is darkened.  Professing yourself to be wise, you reverse everything and you become an educated fool, on your way to hell, because I will give you up! Romans 1:21-22.
Some of you know fully well, that My Father has forgiven you, and you preach forgiveness, and yet you are holding a grudge, refusing to forgive someone that has hurt you. This knowledge has actually become your death warrant. You know fully well that, “if you forgive men their sins against you, your Heavenly Father will also forgive you:  But if you hold a grudge and will not forgive those who hurt you, neither will your Father forgive your sins,” Matthew 6:14-15.
This is how strongly My Father feels about forgiveness; He will allow you to be tormented in this life until you forgive, Matthew 18:32-35 and if you are stubborn and don’t forgive before you die, that very knowledge that you preached to set others free, will send you to hell.
Don’t play around with a grudge, or play with hurt feelings, because the knowledge you possess could turn deadly, if your heart suddenly turns to stone and if you justify your sin unto death, you are doomed forever! Don’t nurse your hurts, it’s not worth it! Forgive right now, tomorrow is may be to late!
