and sisters, we are all in this together, a lone ranger stance has no place in
the body. I thank God, for Jesus Christ, who made me a part of His beautiful
body of believers. I love my brothers and sisters, and enjoy our shared lives.
Yes, we share our blessings, pains, troubles, failings, and victories with one
another, freely and admonish one another without condemnation.
is because of Jesus Christ that we all have this same blessing. My prayer is
that with the help of God, that all Christians will accept, believe and
understand the permanent work of our Lord Jesus Christ who has given us PERMANENT
FORGIVENESS through HIS SINLESS BODY, AND THE SHEDDING OF HIS SINLESS,
INCORRUPTIBLE BLOOD, WHICH RETAINS ITS EFFICIENCY, EFFECTIVENESS, PROFICIENCY,
AND POWER FOREVER, TO BRING ALL WHO
BELIEVE UNTO GOD. For this reason, we do not have to keep begging God for what
Jesus Christ has obtained for all believers permanently forever, world without
end. The repetition of this eternal truth might seem redundant to the
multitudes of brothers and sisters, who fully know this well and meditate on it
daily. However, we must not be proud or look down on those who have yet to
grasp this eternal truth; but allow for those who do not yet know it, for they
will come to know it through the Holy Spirit. The Bible tells us over and over
again what God’s, not corrupt man’s, ETERNAL REMEDY FOR ALL SINS IS: WITHOUT THE SHEDDING OF
BLOOD IS NO REMISSION OF SINS. God the Father is forever satisfied
with the sinless sacrifice of His Son, Jesus Christ. So, after salvation, our full pardon, remission, and forgiveness of all
sins is fully and permanently attained forever.
the ignorance of some who “plead the blood of Jesus” over some issues, or
problems; this phrase is not found in the whole of the Bible, and never
commanded by God. This is because God has commanded us to come directly to Him
and present every need to Him in prayers, supplications, petitions,
intercessions all with thanks giving.
are, again, commanded to come directly to our Lord for help, and to come boldly
to His very throne, without fear, but with great joy.
those Christians who have in error gone to the various sex, porn etc.
addictions groups for example to “struggle” and who have reoccurring “relapses”
in their “recovery” some for years, the Bible tells them and all Christians in
Eph.5: 1 Be imitators of God, therefore, as beloved children, 2 and
walk in love, just as Christ loved us and gave Himself up for us as a fragrant
sacrificial offering to God. 3 But among you, as is proper among the saints,
there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality or impurity or greed.
Rom 6:19 I speak after the manner of men because of the infirmity of
your flesh: for as ye have yielded your members servants to uncleanness and
to iniquity unto iniquity; even so now yield your members servants to
righteousness unto holiness.
The Bible is saying I ain’t got no disease, I am doing this stuff to myself!!!
Yeah, that is right, beloveds,
no one is making or forcing us to sin against our own bodies, we are doing it
to ourselves. The Bible is absolutely clear, put a brake on sin, stop doing it,
allowing it, making excuses for it, and put it to death, (as God has empowered
all believers to do), whatever the cost or
discomfort, whatever we are allowing out of the old, dead corrupt sin nature. The final evidence of true
repentance is truly fulfilled and realized in a change of mind, heart, and
conduct from doing our will, our way to doing God’s will, and God’s way in
honor, and glorification of Him in love and obedience. God’s way or our way? God’s
way is the only eternal right answer and path forever.

doubt, there are multitudes of brothers and sisters that have learned to live a
joyous, life gladly in self-control, and disciplined, not out of fear but
obedient to Jesus out of love, knowing He has given them the power to live in
the Spirit and not the flesh. In this we glorify Him and please Him.
you know brothers and sisters, we get better at doing a thing as we gain more
and more experience. The apostle Paul reminded the Corinthians that he had the apostolic
power to discipline them, and bring a halt to their sinful behaviors. God owns
us, and He will discipline His people. Of course, those who reject the
discipline of God and or His people are bastards, not children. He firmly
tells the Corinthians to examine themselves to see if they are actually true Christians.
Anyone who feels free to habitually sin without conscience, consideration,
nor questioning that a thing is wrong are not Christians. We, however, must
note beloveds, that the apostle Paul ends his letter to these Corinthians certain
that they will do the right thing as he has admonished them to do.
due to the invasion of the mind sciences in some churches, there is an over
indulgence in trying to get Christians to see themselves as hapless, hopeless
victims of their own misbehaviors. We know this because where the mind sciences
are welcomed we have all kinds of “addictions” groups that people attend for
years with no results. The secular world sees this and smirks at “easy
believe-ism”, that traps people in a downward spiral of hopelessness, and do
nothing-isms to bring their lives under some semblance of control.
God for the multitudes of wise leaders who teach the truth that God has fully
equipped every believer with power, and enabled them to use it to bring to a
halt habitual sins. All Christians can learn biblical self-discipline, and
self-control, and get better at it over time, by the power of God.
prayer of repentance: Lord Jesus, I thank you that my sins are forgiven, and
that you will not hold them against me. I thank you that you have given me the
power as a new creation in Christ to live according to your word. Lord I repent of name the sin, and I
know it is wrong and displeasing in your sight and does not honor you. Lord
Jesus, I have great godly sorrow in my heart, because I know I displeased you,
the One who gave Himself for me so I did not have to die in my sins and be lost
forever. Lord I turn away from name the sin, with all my heart, and mind.
I refuse to practice it any longer, and will not do so no matter the cost,
or discomfort. I turn fully to you Lord Jesus in agreement that your way is
the only right way and the only right way is your way. Lord, my desire is to
honor you, love and obey you, and glorify you AND I WILL SHOW YOU by
doing your will and not my own. I know that you are with and in me, and you are
well able to help me in every way. You own me, Lord. You bought me with your
own sinless precious blood, and filled me with your spirit, so I can live the
way you desire me to live. Lord Jesus thank you for not only hearing my prayer
of repentance, but for giving me the power to live according to your will, to
honor, please and love you.
step of repentance-is putting it into action in heart, mind AND CONDUCT
that represents a true change. See earlier posts on making amends to those whom
we have sinned against.
Rom. 6: 5 For if we have been united with Him like this in His
death, we will certainly also be raised to life as He was. 6 We know that
our old self was crucified with Him so that the body of sin might be rendered
powerless, that we should no longer be slaves to sin. 7For anyone who has
died has been freed from sin. (BSB)
Rom. 6:13 Do not present the parts of
your body to sin as instruments of wickedness, but present yourselves to God as
those who have been brought from death to life; and present the parts of your
body to Him as instruments of righteousness. 14 For sin shall not be your
master, because you are not under law, but under grace. (Berean Study Bible)
The good thing is this has
nothing to do with self-flagellation, going about in sack cloth and ashes
crying unclean, unclean, keeping short accounts, etc. Just like we learned to
walk and talk that came about naturally through experience, God will, enable us
to do the same in living the new life He has given to us by His power. In
earlier posts, I noted the role of self-correction; mutual confession amongst
believers; the sources of discipline in the church, firstly God, church
leaders, the body as a whole, and members amongst themselves.

Berean Bible puts it this way, brothers and sisters:
1 John 3: 4 Everyone committing sin also commits lawlessness; and
sin is lawlessness. 5 And you know that He appeared, so that He might take away
sins; and in Him there is no sin. 6 Anyone abiding in Him does not sin; anyone
sinning has not seen Him, nor has he known Him. 7 Little children, let no one
lead you astray; the one practicing righteousness is righteous, just as He is
righteous. 8 The one practicing sin is of the devil, because the devil has been
sinning from the beginning. For this reason the Son of God was revealed, so
that He might destroy the works of the devil. 9 Anyone having been born of God
does not practice sin, because His seed abides in him, and he is not able to
continue sinning, because he has been born of God. 10 Through this, the
children of God and the children of the devil are manifest: anyone not
practicing righteousness is not of God, and also the one not loving his
out of control vehicle, can cause a lot of damage.
the driver and/or owner of the vehicle is held responsible and accountable for
the damage and injury caused.
no one would ever, ever think that it was O.K. to start such a vehicle, and
just let it run wild, that is why these things have a steering wheel, and
old nature too is never to be left in control of our lives, for it cannot, that is why all Christians,
under the control of and inhabited by God have the power, authority, and
ability to put brakes on the old nature and steer their lives along the paths
set by God. Repentance, ultimately, is reflected in our godly actions
continually putting the brakes on sins, steering away from, not towards
habitually sinning without conscience, consideration, nor questioning that a
thing is wrong.
boy! Talk about a church in trouble! The apostle Paul had something to say to
2 Cor. 12: 20 For I am afraid that when I come, I may not find you
as I wish, and you may not find me as you wish. I fear that there may be
quarreling, jealousy, rage, rivalry, slander, gossip, arrogance, and disorder.
21 I am afraid that when I come again, my God will humble me before you, and I
will be grieved over many who have sinned earlier and have not repented
of their acts of impurity, sexual immorality, and debauchery. (from the Berean Bible)
Note that Paul does not
direct them to beg God for forgiveness, or tell God about it by just “confessing”
their sins. Also note that he does not tell them not to worry, because they are just poor old broken sinners, and God understands after all. Paul absolutely expresses none of these sentiments. Paul frankly is not excusing their behavior/sins at all. Paul is saying, hey you guys, you have allowed and given in to your old sin nature, and it is well manifested in your conduct. Instead, you should have put the brakes on these things, out of obedience and love of God.

Living as Children of Light
Because all Christians are permanently freed from the dominion,
power, chain and reign of sin, through Jesus Christ, we can look to the Bible’s
instructions as to how God expects and empowers every Christian to deal with
sins, finally and conclusively. Rom 6:12 Let not
sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts
The Bible lists every and all types of sins that every Christian has
power over, through Jesus Christ.
Heb 12:1 Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about
with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and
the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race
that is set before us,
Lay aside: to put away (literally or figuratively):—cast off, lay
apart (aside, down), put away (off
has granted every Christian the power to overcome sin. The Bible does not
direct believers to keep coming to Christ to “confess” or keep “short accounts”
or to beg for “forgiveness”, anymore because Jesus has permanently atoned and
gained permanent forgiveness for all believers with God, and He has finished it
for us for all time with God. Now He
calls on us brothers and sisters to exercise self-control, self-correction, of
our minds and bodies as He has given us power to do. Some sins are tough, but Jesus always gives us a door of escape. Jesus always gives us all the help that we need, and we are free to bring him all of our needs and trials, for He will surely help us. No Christian is under condemnation, and repentance leads to joy as we find out through exercising the power he has given us over sin. An automobile is a very powerful thing, but when we step on the brakes it has to stop. However, our spiritual brakes given through Jesus Christ, will never be defective and in recall, but forever retains its power over all sins.
Wed, Oct 19th - 6:09PM
Brothers and sisters I posted this before: The question for some remain: So how does the
Christian deal with sin in his or her life, although they are forgiven and no
record of them is ever kept or remembered by God? The Bible gives the Christian
the complete, final, eternal answer to this question for all time.
Lets look at one of many examples through out the scriptures: 2Co 7:10 For godly sorrow worketh repentance to
salvation not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the world worketh death.
Godly: as one who represents His counsels, interests, things due
Sorrow not in the sense of passivity, but: heartfelt in mind, and
heart sorrow, pain, grief, annoyance, affliction; .of persons mourning and
evidenced in change and growth in our public and private lives.
Christians repent from continuing behaviors of the old nature,
like before one has received salvation. This is more than just saying
oops! Sorry! This is refusing to carry
out these behaviors or sins any longer at all costs and discomforts. Repentance
involves holding the truth of the Bible as our eternal and final standard in
our intellects- those teachings from God, that tells us and gives us the God given
ability to know right from wrong. Repentance involves our new hearts, that
refuse and are unwilling to continue to do things that grieve the Holy Spirit. Repentance
is the God given ability to every Christian to meet the challenges of sin, to
overcome sin and to continue to grow stronger and stronger in grace. Ever taken
driving lessons, brother and sisters? It takes a while to learn, and the
instructor I had said the most important thing was to remember where the breaks (Brakes are exactly that)
are. Over time I learned that my breaks ,(that's what brakes do),were higher than the start pedal, and
placed where my feet would find them easily. Those breaks(brakes gives us breaks), saved me from more
than a few collisions. God through Jesus Christ has given us the ability to
repent and put the breaks (brakes) on those behaviors-sins that He forbids. Christians have God's authority to break the hold of any sin in our lives, by putting the brakes on them. Look, beloveds, no one is saying this is easy, for some of us, we will have to keep our feet on the brakes without let up over a life time in resisting some sins, and find that honoring Jesus is worth it. The Bible gives
absolute eternal and final truth about this: 1Jo 3:6 Whosoever
abideth in him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen him, neither known
5:18 We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not; but he that is begotten
of God keepeth himself, and that wicked one toucheth him not.

It is absolutely eternally true God has forgiven permanently all
of our sins forever through Jesus Christ our Lord. However, He never promised
that other people, here on earth, would not throw our past sins up in our
faces; especially those we have sinned against. In some cases, our sins have caused
an irreparable break in relationships here on earth, despite our sincere desire
to make amends to restore and gain back the trust of those whom we have sinned
against. Even if they have forgiven us, or not, they have the right to separate
themselves from us. Forgiveness does not guarantee renewed relationships and/or
restoration of trust from those whom we have offended.
We are not robots, and although God never does, yes we here on
earth do remember our past sins, and are rightfully ashamed of them. This is a good thing in the sense that we no longer want to do or be associated with those things, and are busy presenting our best in the sight of God. In another sense we are also busy making sure that those things of which we are now ashamed are no longer present in our lives. In remembrance of our past sins, but not obsessively so, it is like a yard stick to measure how far we have come in our growth in
Jesus Christ. We have God given insight through our faith and love in Jesus
Christ, that we have now the power to do good. We have God given hindsight that
sins have consequences and we will be held responsible and accountable for them
on earth. We have God given foresight, from God, knowing that the practice of
sins is forbidden by God, and is never the hall mark of an authentic Christian.
In the remembrance of our past sins we rejoice that now through the power of Jesus
Christ, we no longer desire to do those things we used to do, and not only that
we have the power not to keep doing them, but to obey God instead of our old
nature. Most importantly, we are a forgiven peoples permanently, forever world without end, and stand guiltless in the sight of God.
Even the apostle Paul's sins were remembered by some. In his past life as Saul, he greatly harmed the church, and Christians ain't crazy, they were afraid of him for a while, even after his conversion.
But Ananias answered, "Lord, many people have told me about this man and all the harm he has done to Your saints in Jerusalem.
Saul who became Paul, in time over came his past by his consistently godly behavior and treatment of the church he once, in ignorance tried to destroy. He passed the test, he did the godly work of building up and loving the people of God, he repaired the breach so to speak, by the power of Jesus Christ, and became greatly loved by the church.
Strangely, some Christians just want forgiveness from those whom they have offended with little thought to do the work required on their part to take responsibility, and accountability to hopefully restore and gain back trust to make amends, to set things right with those whom they have sinned against, wherever possible.
Brothers and sisters, it must be said again, and often, forgiveness is not a blank check here on earth, that wipes out our past offenses towards others who rightfully remember them, and must decide whether to trust us again or even want to continue in a relationship with us, even if they forgive us or not. The bible is clear, that for those who seek forgiveness while continuing the offenses against another, forgiveness is off the table under these circumstances.
Look at this in biblical terms, this way, brothers and sisters: Ro. 6:20 For when ye were
the servants of sin, ye were free from righteousness. 21 What fruit had
ye then in those things whereof ye are now ashamed? for the end of those
things is death. 22 But now being made free from sin, and become
servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting
life. 23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
if anyone is just obsessed with continually recalling their past sins, it is
most likely that they have done nothing to correct or make amends where ever
it is possible to do so. I pray that such should seek godly counsel to seek
guidance on taking responsibility and accountability to make amends where ever
it is possible.

For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded
is life and peace.
1Co 2:16 For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may
instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.
Our mindset towards sin is the God given confidence, recognition,
competence and empowerment to live above sin.
Rom 6:11 Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto
sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.
The Bible instructs us and empowers us to confidently and proficiently restrain ourselves personally and all Christians generally from actively practicing any sin, even as a life style. out of love, faith, and in obedience to Jesus Christ.
Rom 6:13 Neither yield ye
your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves
unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as
instruments of righteousness unto God.
Rom 6:7 For he that is dead is freed from sin.
Again the Bible warns about the wrong mindset, and directs our
minds to the correct spiritual position commanded by God:
Rom 8:6 For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually
minded is life and peace.
Christians do not have to practice sin. No true Christian can claim to be a helpless victim of sin. You brothers and sisters
who know all this, please pray that those who do not yet know will come
believing and trusting that Jesus Christ has broken the chain and reign of sin
forever in the lives of every believer.
Rom 8:2For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made
me free from the law of sin and death.
might feel, "I know I have been forgiven, that through Jesus Christ, God keeps no record and remembers my sin NO MORE, but some people remind me of my past
sins, and I myself also remember and find it hard to forget my past sins and
feel ashamed of them."

In human interactions a pardon can be revoked under certain
circumstances; and a pardon can be full or conditional. Some countries erase
the criminal records of those who have been pardoned, nevertheless the pardon
can still be revoked all the same under certain circumstances. Forgiveness or
redemption of debts by banks is often seen as a great thing, by many people,
until they find out that the IRS considers this as tax deductible income, with
few exceptions. Even between people, forgiveness can be a quirky thing, because
the forgiver may throw back into the face of the forgiven the details of what
was forgiven, but never forgotten.
The forgiveness obtained through the atonement of Jesus Christ is
not like that offered by mere human beings. Many of us brothers and sisters already know why it is extremely important to know this final, eternal truth. Thank God, through the Holy Spirit, all can come to know it, and be settled in the faith towards God through Jesus Christ our Lord. The forgiveness obtained through the atonement of Jesus Christ is permanent, will never be revoked, or rescinded for all who believe. There is no record kept ever of a believers sin, they are totally blotted out for all eternity. The question for some remain: So how does the Christian deal with sin in his or her life, although they are forgiven and no record of them is ever kept or remembered by God? The Bible gives the Christian the complete, final, eternal answer to this question for all time.
Sat, Oct 8th - 11:04PM
Brothers and sisters, let us remember that after the yearly Day of
Atonement, which could last for only one day in the year, because the inferior
blood of the sacrificed animals decayed away into corruption and always lost its
efficiency and power. Due to this, the rest of the year all the people
individually had to daily, and whenever they sinned confess it to the priest,
bringing a sacrifice in order not to die for their sins, this included even the
Levitical high priest and the priests under him, this was a works ministry of
death, sin, and the curse for failure to obey God by keeping the WHOLE Old
Covenant of the Law.
4:3 If the priest that is anointed do sin according to the sin of the people;
then let him bring for his sin, which he hath sinned, a young bullock without
blemish unto the LORD for a sin offering.
The old, inferior Covenant of the Law has been abolished forever
by God, because of the final, complete and finished work of His Son Jesus
Christ. We have a New Covenant or Testament written in the sinless blood of Jesus
Christ, so we have no need to keep begging Jesus and or God to forgive us of
our sins or any sins. Our High Priest Jesus Christ never had to offer up any
sacrifice for His sins. He took our sins and carried them away completely
purging them; but He never had any being perfectly sinless.
Act 13:39 And by him all that believe are justified from
all things, from which ye could not be justified by the law of Moses.
1Jo 3:5 And ye know that he was manifested to take away
our sins; and in him is no sin.
Now where remission of these is, there is no
more offering for sin.
Whoa, wait a minute, is the Bible saying that the only way God forgives
any sins is that He first demands and commands that the sinner must first bring
an offering of blood sacrifice from someone perfect and sinless?
Heb 9:22 And almost all things are by the law purged
with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission.
Yes, this is exactly the eternal and final truth that the Bible tells
us. The one time sacrifice of the sinless blood of Jesus Christ forever absolutely retains its
efficiency and power for the eternal atonement, forgiveness, pardon and
redemption for the sins of all who believe.
Atonement, redemption, forgiveness, pardon what does it all mean
anyway. In strictly human terms when a person requests, and receives a pardon
from the criminal justice system, their actual crimes are still kept on record
and never sealed, although they were pardoned, that is forgiven by the
criminal justice system. So people can still get a copy of his or her records. The person can still be judged in a negative way, although he or she is pardoned and may be
now living as a law abiding citizen of the United States.
Wed, Oct 5th - 1:34AM
Brothers and sisters, we note that it took a lot of steps to gain
the limited atonement for the nation of Israel, under the Old Covenant of the Law: A long line of merely human high priest
sinners; the first was defrocked and killed by God because he rebelled against
Him, the great prophet Moses, who was also killed
by God for similar rebellion, and the countless sacrifices of the blood of
animals. All of their works were so terribly inferior that it could accomplish
just one day of atonement in the year, for the nation of Israel. THIS IS EXACTLY AS GOD INTENDED TO SHOW THAT THE BEST INTENTIONS OF MERE HUMAN SINNERS CANNOT SAVE ANYONE, EVEN THOSE ATTEMPTING TO DO SO.
But now we see Jesus Christ: Jesus proved He is the Son of God
because He lived a perfect sinless life in perfect absolute love and obedience
to God. In doing so He absolutely and completely fulfilled the Old Covenant of
the Law; unlike the failed sinning Levitical priesthood. Jesus is the only one
who has ever completely, and fully kept the whole Old Covenant of the Law.
Brothers and sisters, let us remember what Jesus said:
Mat 5:17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the
prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. And this is exactly what Jesus
Christ did. Therefore,
in His sinless perfection, Jesus Christ met:
ALL of God’s requirements to make atonement for ALL the
sins of ALL peoples who believe everywhere and in all ages, not just the nation of Israel. Jesus Christ is the Messiah, Saviour, the Anointed One, Redeemer, Deliverer, Prophet,
High Priest and King. Jesus Christ is the perfect sinless unblemished
sacrificed Lamb who gave His sinless body, shed His sinless blood on the cross
and died, not just for the nation of Israel, but for all men. Jesus Christ in His death took God's penalty of punishment, death, the curse, and wrath for all of our sins.
Behold, all souls are mine; as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son is mine: the soul that sinneth, it shall die.
THE BLOOD OF JESUS
But he, whom God raised again, saw no corruption.
too, the sinless, perfect blood of Jesus Christ is superior to the blood of
animals, in every way, that decayed away into corruption once sacrificed year after year for
the nation of Israel, under the Old Covenant of the Law. BECAUSE THE BLOOD OF JESUS
CHRIST IS SINLESS AND PERFECT IT IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR IT TO DEGENERATE OR ROT AWAY INTO CORRUPTION.
THEREFORE, THE SINLESS BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST HAD ONLY TO BE SHED ONE TIME AS IT FOREVER RETAINS ITS EFFICIENCY AND POWER
FOR ALL ETERNITY TO MAKE THE ATONEMENT FOR ALL WHO BELIEVE.
Jesus Christ is
the perfect Scapegoat who arose alive from the dead having ALL our sins placed on Him by God, and sent into heaven itself, by God, to carry away ALL the sins of ALL peoples, for all time, not just the nation of Israel, but of the whole
world, for ALL who will believe on Him.
Therefore, God the Father has appointed
Jesus Christ as the sole eternal Saviour, Author of Salvation, Giver of eternal life, who made the perfect eternal, final and complete atonement for the whole world for ALL sins forever, for ALL who will believe in and on Him. By this we understand what happened to all the sins of them that believe on Jesus Christ, Author of Eternal life and complete Atonement for ALL sins forever; for whomsoever will
believe in Him. Jesus Christ has done the final, perfect, absolutely complete work to
make eternal atonement for all who believe through His one- time perfect work
in offering to God the sinless, perfect, and absolute complete sacrifice of Himself.
Do you believe that Jesus Christ carried away, took away, and totally cleansed all sin forever for those who believe in Him as the Bible has said or not?
I pray that your answer is "YES LORD, I CONFESS AND BELIEVE, THAT JESUS CHRIST DIED ON THE CROSS AND ROSE AGAIN TO PAY FOR ALL MY SINS AND THAT OF ALL WHO BELIEVE IN AND ON HIM". This is the only answer acceptable to God.
Brothers and sisters, next time we must look
further at what forgiveness means according to the Bible not personal opinions
of the ignorant and/or those who willingly corrupt the word of God, to turn people away from Christ.
In the mean time, beloveds, let the multitudes of us who know all this well, through the Holy Spirit, pray for the brothers and sisters who do not yet know- that they will come to know, understand and fully believe and be rooted in the truth of the New Covenant of Jesus Christ, that Jesus Christ paid all our sin debt in full, not just for some sins but for all sins, for all time.
For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins
and their iniquities will I remember no more.
And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more.
Sat, Oct 1st - 9:22PM
Under the Old Covenant of the Law, God had the Mosaic priesthood.
It had its ordinances, and many laws. It had multiple sacrifices of animal
blood to make atonement for the sins of individuals daily. Once a year the High
priest alone had to make an atonement for the whole nation, to avoid the nation
being destroyed by God. This atonement only lasted for one day in the year. This
was a highly detailed and arduous process. After the high priest first made
atonement for his sins and the sins of the Levitical priesthood, he made
atonement for the nation, sacrificing animals without blemish, one animal
without blemish was killed and its blood offered on the altar. This paid for
the sins of all the people so the people would not have to die for their own
sins. Eze 18:4 Behold, all souls are mine; as the soul of the father, so also
the soul of the son is mine: the soul that sinneth, it shall die.
The second animal was left alive and called the scapegoat:
Lev 16:10 But the goat, on which the lot fell to be the scapegoat,
shall be presented alive before the LORD, to make an atonement with him, and to
let him go for a scapegoat into the wilderness.
Lev 16:21 And Aaron shall
lay both his hands upon the head of the live goat, and confess over him all the
iniquities of the children of Israel, and all their transgressions in all their
sins, putting them upon the head of the goat, and shall send him away by the
hand of a fit man into the wilderness:
So we see, brothers and sisters, atonement, pardon or forgiveness
for all the people was a twostep process, one animal to die for the people, and a live animal
to take all the sins of the people away, for the year at least. Meantime the
rest of the year the people still had to confess their sins and make an
offering to avoid being killed/ and or cursed by God.
Deu 32:39 See now that I, even I, am he, and there is no god with
me: I kill, and I make alive; I wound, and I heal: neither is there any that
can deliver out of my hand.
The reason for these numerous sacrifices is that once the blood of animals is shed it rots away, losings
its efficacy; therefore making it necessary to kill other animals for fresh
blood. There was no permanent forgiveness under the Old Covenant of the Law,
and that was exactly the way God ordained it to be- temporary forgiveness only;
because He had something much better coming on down the road at the appointed
time. The Law teaches that all men are sinners with no ability to save themselves.
Next time we can contrast and compare the
Levitical priesthood with the Superior Messianic Priesthood. Thanks for
stopping by, beloveds, and I pray we will meet again here next time.

Brothers and sisters, God cursed, and condemned all men, including the nation of Israel, under the
Old Covenant of the Law with specific curses, generational curses, etc. for not
keeping the whole law, whether ignorantly or intentionally. However, because
of Jesus Christ, appointed by God as the only eternal Saviour, and the sole
source of salvation; all who will turn to and who believe in Him, are freed and absolutely delivered
from the Law and all of its curses for all time. This salvation is offered as unmerited, unearned, un-buyable,
and unrepayable favor, but given freely to all who believe in Jesus, by the unmerited favor and
mercy of God: (Gal 2:16 Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the
law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ,
that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the
law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified.)
Gal 3:10 For as many as are
of the works of the law are under the curse: for it is written, Cursed is every
one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law
to do them.
Those who think they can be saved by human works or their own
efforts in any way, are still deceived
and still under the Law.
Gal 3:13 Christ hath
redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is
written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree:
Those who preach willfully or ignorantly that any Christian is or
can be cursed is preaching a lie. We ought to believe the word of God over the
lies or ignorance of mere men.
Some may ask if Christians are delivered from all curses why does
the Bible list this verse?
Rev 22:3 And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God
and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him:
This verse means that God will have absolutely no need no reason to curse any person or people
anymore, because in the end, God will have destroyed the devil, all demons, all
fallen angels, and all the evil people who are all followers of the devil in the
lake of fire for all eternity. Only our Triune God’s, people whom He has made
eternally holy, pure, SINLESS, righteous, and fully indwelt by Him shall remain,
with His holy angels in His eternal kingdom. Again, dearly beloveds, since nothing cursed, nor
worthy of cursing shall remain, God has no further need for any curse, ever
Now if a person is not saved, brethren, there cannot be any surprise that he
or she is a cursed sinner under the Law. However, all who will believe in Jesus
Christ ARE fully forgiven of all sins and also escape eternally from the curse,
condemnation, the wrath of God, death, and eternal damnation in the lake of
This is God’s absolute, final, eternal, answer for all time to the
world, and for and to them that believe, and live according to His word.
I know, brothers and sisters, some ponder why
they have so much misfortune, or that of friends or family who are saved. To avoid
a study within a study, feel free to study on your own the various trials and
tribulations that are common to all Christians. These trials and tribulations are temporary, God also gives us ways to escape them; AND ABSOLUTELY NONE OF THEM ARE CURSES. God
allows these trials and tribulations NEVER to destroy us, but for our good, to
guide, correct, discipline, challenge, change and strengthen every one of us to grow in
our love, eternal faith and truth in Him and for Him, in this we also glorify and please Him.
