Fighting Forgiveness

"Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits: who forgiveth all thine iniquities" (Psalm 103:2,3).  "The wicked is driven away in his wickedness: but the righteous hath hope in his death" (Proverbs 14:32).  "Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil… Therefore is the anger of the LORD kindled against his people" (Isaiah 5:20-25).  "The God of our fathers raised up Jesus… to be a Prince and a Savior, for to give repentance to Israel, and forgiveness of sins… Ye… fight against God" (Acts 5:30-39). 

How great are the blessings God lists
For all who repent and surrender! 
How blind is the one who resists
The Lord who would be his Defender! 

Iniquities may be forgiven
Before we descend to the grave,
But those who fight God shall be driven
To death without grace that would save. 

The one who says evil is good,
Declaring that wrong is now right,
Has certainly not understood
How hopeless he is in this fight. 

Lord Jesus, our Prince and our Savior,
Those fighting forgiveness shall find
That they have rejected Your favor
By following those who are blind.
