Who Can Take Away Your Sins? Where can forgiveness be found?

Posted: November 22, 2016 in Cults and Idol Worship, Holy Spirit speaks truth today, rivers of living water: salvation

If bedrock truth is that we all sin, where then can forgiveness be found? Are we to be left as hopeless sinners? We live; we die; we go down to the world of the dead?

No! Thankfully our merciful God provided a way out. Two thousand years ago, as John the Baptist (because he baptized people in the Jordan River to prepare a path before the coming savior) saw Jesus walking towards him along the river bank said, “…Here is the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!” (John 1:29) God knew before the foundation of the world that man would sin, fall and need redemption. Jesus was with Father God even then. This plan is woven throughout the whole Holy Bible. Jesus’ arrival is told through the old testament prophets and psalms. God provided his own sacrificial lamb that whosoever believes in him would be saved….not punished as we deserve. Hurray, hurrah….praise our merciful Lord!

Error: People can be saved after they die by baptizing them. With great heartbreak, I must report that one only gets their time on earth to choose. Relatives can not save them if they have died unrepentant in their sins. There is a law called personal choice and responsibility. A major modern religion (one that was created in the last 200 years) erroneously promotes this lie as truth.

Error: Priests, Pastors (men and women) can forgive your sins. Only God can forgive sins. I recently read of a major world religion that is going to give its priest the power to forgive abortion (the willful removal of human life from inside the mother before live birth).  God provided a really narrow bridge from humanity to himself called JESUS CHRIST. You cannot build a ladder tall enough to reach heaven with your man-made redemption plans. You must walk the bridge God provided. He will forgive your sins, including abortion, if you humbly admit that you are a sinner in need of a savior. You must then REPENT and turn away from that which is named Biblical sin.

Error: I can receive Jesus Christ as my savior and continue on selfishly building my own earthly kingdom, being distracted from soul-winning and ignoring the needs of the poor, widowed, orphaned, persecuted and lonely while I work and scheme to acquire wealth and possessions (commonly called the Prosperity Gospel). God called us to have a broken heart for lost sinners, orphans, widows, persecuted believers, the poor and the lost. We are called to lay down our own earthly kingdom-building lives and concentrate on our King’s heavenly kingdom business. This is where rewards that last for eternity will be found.

Try listening to Zach William’s “Chain Beaker” anointed worship song which speaks of a better life, away from pain and feeling lost. Jesus gives freedom and the breaking of all chains of sin that entangle. Trust God above with your precious soul which will go on for eternity. The only question at all is WHERE WILL YOUR SOUL LIVE?

TRUTH: “The day is coming (at your body’s physical death) when God will judge all of us. In the Scriptures God says, ‘I swear by my very life that everyone will kneel down and praise my name!’ And so, each of us must give an account to God for what we do.” (Romans 14: 10-12) Satan is a defeated foe. Even he, at the end of what we on earth refer to as “time” will bow and admit that Jesus Christ is Lord.
