About Let Series
LET. Wielded by the Holy Spirit, this tiny word had a huge impact on Martha’s life, and the adventure can be yours, too, if you just LET God be GOD.
Hebrews 12:1 ESV
…lay aside every weight, and sin…
This is simply describing repentance, which is to SEE and then ‘lay aside’ your burden and sin on Christ in His Cross. LET go of it all! Put it OFF of you and put it ON Him Who already took it into Himself and died of our sin.
Give it up, give it away to Him and be free of ‘weights and sins.’
Derek Prince was an amazing teacher of the Bible. One of his major subjects was repentance, and he had a very original revelation of it. He said, “There is no other way to faith but through repentance. True faith is impossible without repentance.”
Hebrews 12:1 proves his point. Before we can even begin to seek faith, we must experience the light of God on our sins, which are always, at their root, (weights) of presumption and (sins) of arrogance.
Prince quoted passages where repentance and faith were linked – Acts 20:21; Hebrews 6:1; Romans 3:20. The Greek and the Hebrew definitions of ‘repent’ give the complete understanding of the work of repentance.
Greek: ‘change the mind.’
Matthew 3:2 AMPC
“Repent, (think differently; change your mind)…”
Jeremiah 5:3, 4, 5 AMPC
“…they have refused to repent and return to You.”
