I Believe in the Forgiveness of sins!
When a man's sins are set before him in the light of God's countenance, his first instinct is to fear that they are altogether unpardonable. And on account of these his conscience passes judgement upon his soul and condemns it even as the law does. God must punish the wickedness. So he concludes that the Lord cannot willingly forgive. That part of the hardness of his heart goes to deepen the conviction that God will not pass by his transgressions and he is therefore terribly dismayed and hopeless of mercy. Meanwhile the devil comes in with all the horrors of the infernal pit and threatens speedy destruction. Thus for once the devil craftily cooperates with the law of God and with his conscience - these would drive men to despair, butsatan would go further and compel them to despair as touching the Lord, himself, so as to believe that pardon for transgression is quite impossible. The convinced sinner is able to believe that mercy may be shown to others, but as for himself, he signs his own death warrant and labors under full persuasion that the acts of God's mercy can never extend to him. No stock can hold a man so fast as his own guilty fears. The hangman's whip never tortured men so cruelly as does an awakened conscience.
THERE IS FORGIVENESS!!!
There is forgiveness with thee, that you may be feared. (Psalms 130:4) Let us adore the Lord because he delights in mercy!
If God had no pardons, would'nt he have let us die long ago? Didn't we sin early in life, and maybe alot?
Is it not true, even as Elihu said; he looks upon men, and if any say, i have sinned, and perverted what was right and it was not equally repaid to me; he will deliver his soul from going into the pit, and his life shall see the light. (Job 33:27+28)
Why did Christ institute christian ministry and send forth his servants to proclaim the gospel? For what is the gospel but a declaration that Christ is exalted on high to give repentance unto Israel and remission of sins?
The blood of Jesus Christ his son cleanses us from sin
All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men. ( Matthew 12:31)
THERE IS FORGIVENESS, THROUGH THE NAME OF JESUS, WHOEVER BELIEVES IN HIM SHALL RECEIVE REMISSION OF SINS. ( Acts 10:43)
This forgiveness is tantamount to forgetting sin. A total forgetting of all the wrong doing of the pardoned ones.
THEIR SIN AND THEIR INIQUITIES WILL I REMEMBER NO MORE. NO MORE!!!!!!!!!!
LET THOSE WORDS GO ECHOING THROUGH THE CHAMBERS OF DESPAIR - NO MORE!!!!
Who is a pardoning god like thee? and who has grace so rich and so free?
So come to Christ without delay, or crawl if you have to, but either way come, all good things are in coming to Christ.
I BELIEVE IN THE FORGIVENESS OF SINS
I EVEN I, AM HE THAT BLOTS OUT YOUR TRANSGRESSIONS FOR MY OWN SAKE, AND WILL NOT REMEMBER YOUR SINS. ISAIAH 43:25
