  3. 3. REPENTANCE 4. The Greek verb getavogco (metanoeo), translated "repent, " means a complete change of mind and has no emotional con—notation. 5. Since metanoeo and riacham are transitive verbs, they must have a subject and an object. Hence, the sub'ect changes his mind about some ob'ect in the context. 6. The salvation use of metanoeo: In each case, the unbeliever is the subject, while the Lord Jesus Christ is the object. l. (Matt. l2:4l; Mark l: l5; Luke 13:3, 5; 15:7, 10; 16:30-31; Acts 17:30; 20:21; 26:20; Heb. l2:l 7; 2 Pet. 3:9). 2. Note: The unbeliever does not repent toward sin, but toward the Savior. ”You are the Light and Sa| t"Matt.5:l 3-16 www. t|cfan. org By Pastor Leon Emmanue|
  4. 4. REPENTANCE 7. Salvation repentance is defined as a change of attitude toward Jesus Christ prior to receive salvation. A. The unbeliever cannot understand spiritual phenomena (1 Cor. 2:14), so the Holy Spirit acts as a human spirit in the percep—tion of the Gospel (John i6:8—i i; 2 Tim. 2:25). B. T ‘he Holy Spirit makes the Gospel both yvciiatg (griosis) and kn/ ‘yvcoatg (ep/ gnos/ s)in the soul ofthe unbeliever thereby facilitating his change of attitude. 8.The verb, metcinoeo, is also used for believers in phase two in the following manner: A. Change of attitude toward human good (Heb. 6:1). B. Change of attitude in reversionism toward doctrine (2 Cori 2:21; Rev. 2:5, 16, 22; 3:19). ”You are the Light and Sa| t"Matt.5:i 3-16 www. t|cfan. org By Pastor Leon Emmanuel
  5. 5. REPENTANCE 9 . The Greek verb, (metame/ omai), is also trans—lated "repent, " which is incorrect. This verb has an emotional connotation, indicating "regret" or "feeling sorry for something one has done. " 10 Four uses of metame/ oma/ : A. Regret ofa previous action (Matt. 21 :29). B. Regret of Judas lscariot (Matt. 27:3). Such regret occurred under emotional revolt; regret has no spiritual connotation or advantage. C. No regrets on God's part regarding salvation and spiritual gifts (Rom. 1 1:29). D. No regrets on the : ather‘s part regarding the appointment of Christ as High Priest (Heb. 7:21). ”You are the Light and Sa| t"Matt.5:i 3-16 www. t|cfan. org By Pastor Leon Emmanuel
