Forgiveness can be canceled

In Matthew 18:23-27 Jesus tells a servant of the king who owed 10 000 talents to the king and could not return it back, so that the king had intention to imprison his servant because of its debt. But the king, by his servant’s request, moved by compassion, so that moment he freed his servant from the burden of debts (verse 27).

But when the king and his another servant heard the atrocities of the servant against his friend,then the king canceled his servant’s debt relief, and he change the decision, then imprisons the ruthless servant (verse 34), and Jesus ended the story by saying that he was talking about forgiveness (verse 35 ). That even if someone had his sins forgiven, but if in future he will not forgive his brother, then the forgiveness can be revoked!

Brothers and sisters in the Lord.
If forgiveness from God is canceled, then this will cause serious harm to that person, because a person does not obtain the forgiveness of sins, it is not possible for him to enter heaven. Do not let that happen to us. Therefore, be prepared to forgive anybody, so all our sins are always forgiven by God. Amen.

Matthew 18:23-35
23 Therefore is the kingdom of heaven likened unto a certain king, which would take account of his servants.
24 And when he had begun to reckon, one was brought unto him, which owed him ten thousand talents.
25 But forasmuch as he had not to pay, his lord commanded him to be sold, and his wife, and children, and all that he had, and payment to be made.
26 The servant therefore fell down, and worshipped him, saying, Lord, have patience with me, and I will pay thee all.
27 Then the lord of that servant was moved with compassion, and loosed him, and forgave him the debt.
28 But the same servant went out, and found one of his fellowservants, which owed him an hundred pence: and he laid hands on him, and took him by the throat, saying, Pay me that thou owest.
29 And his fellowservant fell down at his feet, and besought him, saying, Have patience with me, and I will pay thee all.
30 And he would not: but went and cast him into prison, till he should pay the debt.
31 So when his fellowservants saw what was done, they were very sorry, and came and told unto their lord all that was done.
32 Then his lord, after that he had called him, said unto him, O thou wicked servant, I forgave thee all that debt, because thou desiredst me:
33 Shouldest not thou also have had compassion on thy fellowservant, even as I had pity on thee?
34 And his lord was wroth, and delivered him to the tormentors, till he should pay all that was due unto him.
35 So likewise shall my heavenly Father do also unto you, if ye from your hearts forgive not every one his brother their trespasses.
