What is true repentance?
“I have come to call . . . sinners to repentance.”—LUKE 5:32.

1-2. How did two kings differ, and what questions will we consider?

LET us look closely at two kings who lived in ancient times. One ruled over the ten-tribe kingdom of Israel; the other, over the two-tribe kingdom of Judah. Though they lived at different times, they had a lot in common. Both kings rebelled against Jehovah and corrupted his people. Both were guilty of idolatry and murder. However, there was a difference between these two men. One of them pursued a wicked course to the end of his life, but the other repented and was forgiven for his terrible deeds. Who were they?

2 Their names were Ahab, king of Israel, and Manasseh, king of Judah. The differences between these two men can teach us a lot about a very important subject—repentance. (Acts 17:30; Rom. 3:23) What is repentance, and how is it shown? We need to know because we want Jehovah to forgive us when we sin. To find the answers to these questions, we will examine the lives of these two kings and see what we can learn from their examples. Then we will consider what Jesus taught about repentance.

Re: What is true repentance?
Seems pretty simple to me, op…

Heed the call…

What does it mean to heed the call…

To acknowledge we are fallen beings in need of a savior…

But who does not heed the call?

Simple..

people who do not see themselves as fallen beings in need of a savior..

All sinners will find their way to The savior…

And those who say they are without sin will not find their way to the savior.

Re: What is true repentance?
After true repentance one's behavior really changes dramatically for the better.


Sin no longer has mastery over one.


That's how one is able to have assurance.

Repentance is the realization of how many mistakes one has made and the commitment to to learning from them and overcoming the’ with a sincere heart, mind, body, and spirit.

Re: What is true repentance?
Showing that he was not fully repentant, King Ahab throws God’s prophet into prison (See paragraphs 5-6) *

5-6. What suggests that Ahab was not truly repentant?

5 Although Ahab humbled himself on that occasion, his conduct afterward showed that he was not truly repentant. He did not try to remove Baal worship from his kingdom. And he did not promote the worship of Jehovah. Ahab showed his lack of repentance in other ways as well.

Re: What is true repentance?
I think of it as going back to where you made a mistake that led you not to what you really wanted, but into a disaster or series of disasters.

You have to analyze it and figure out how you went wrong.

Then, you see the wrongness of it so clearly that you couldn't even be tempted or forced to do it again.

It ultimately involves taking an entirely different path from where you made a wrong turn.

In essence, it doesn't involve becoming a different person, but remaining essentially the same person doing right.

Like backtracking from a dead end path in the woods, and trying a different path.

It's easy - no drama.

Re: What is true repentance?
6 Later, when Ahab invited good King Jehoshaphat of Judah to join him in the war against the Syrians, Jehoshaphat suggested that they first consult a prophet of Jehovah. Initially, Ahab rejected the idea, saying: “There is still one more man through whom we can inquire of Jehovah; but I hate him, for he never prophesies good things concerning me, only bad.” Even so, they consulted the prophet Micaiah. Sure enough, the man of God foretold bad news for Ahab! Rather than repentantly seek Jehovah’s forgiveness, wicked Ahab had the prophet thrown into prison. (1 Ki. 22:7-9, 23, 27) Although the king managed to imprison Jehovah’s prophet, he could not prevent the prophecy from coming true. In the battle that followed, Ahab was killed.—1 Ki. 22:34-38.

True repentance is fixing your mistake Alchoholics Anonymous taught me that. You sell someone into sex trafficking, you don’t ask God for forgiveness and pay to watch them get raped. You die trying to stop what you caused.

Re: What is true repentance?
It's not the law, Paul and Jesus make that clear.

It's an attitude of the heart. It's the real desire, that you have for something. But NOT the desire in your flesh / Body.

EX: #1
You are a Christina, and an alcoholic, and you desperately want to be free, but you fail everyday, by having a drink.

You pray daily please God, help me, I love alcohol, please make me free. This is a good place even though you fail.

EX: #2
You are a Christian, you used to drink, you haven't drank in 10 years.

You attend AA, and everyday, you grit your teeth and refuse to drink, but you want to drink so badly. This is fleshly strength, this is NOT freedom. This is a bad place.

Re: What is true repentance?
Paul says he was blameless.

Paul understood it wasn't about sins...It was about receiving a new nature, by being born again of spirit.

The old nature comes from Satan / Adam / as the father of the human race sin was passed from the man to all those who come from him. It was NOT from eve.

Thus Mary could have Jesus, as long as Jesus father wasn't a human. And Jesus could provide that NEW nature, via the new birth.

Re: What is true repentance?
7 After Ahab died, Jehovah revealed how he viewed that man. When good King Jehoshaphat came home safely, Jehovah sent the prophet Jehu to rebuke him for having allied himself with Ahab. Jehovah’s prophet said: “Is it the wicked you should be helping, and is it those who hate Jehovah you should love?” (2 Chron. 19:1, 2) Now consider: If Ahab’s repentance had been genuine, surely the prophet would not have described him as a wicked man who hated Jehovah. Clearly, although Ahab had shown a degree of regret, he never fully repented.

Re: What is true repentance?
8. What can we learn about repentance from Ahab’s example?

8 What can we learn from Ahab’s example? When he heard Elijah’s message of calamity against his family line, Ahab initially humbled himself. That was a good start. But his later actions showed that he was not repentant at heart. Repentance, then, must involve more than temporarily expressing sorrow. Let us consider another example that will help us understand what true repentance involves.

true repentance means changing your life style from self serving (at the expense of others) to Doing unto others as you would have them do unto you " - plain and simple

Jesus explained that by keeping the "golden rule" you satisfy all "laws" (god's and man's) and he didn't "invent" that law, it is the one law of the entire Universe (of universes) and has been taught through-out the History of Humanity
