DIG for Thursday the 19th of February…..has He paid for all sin or has He not…..1 John 2 v 2

So the doom and gloom merchants are at it again!

I read a “prophecy” this morning that God is sending an asteroid this year to crash into the Atlantic and cause a Tsunami and earthquake to punish the USA, killing over 40 million people.

The USA is to be punished by God because of the sins of the church.

Now for a start I thought that prophecy was meant to be encouraging, edifying and exhorting!

And Biblical truths can tell us that this type of “prophecy” is actually nonsense.

My Bible says that Jesus has already paid for all the sin of every person in the world (1 John 2 v 2).

My Bible says that forgiveness has flowed upon all mankind as the blood of Jesus flowed on the cross at Calvary (Ephesians 1 v 7 and Colossians 1 v 14).

My Bible says that a day would come when God would remove the sin from His people and remember those sins no longer (Psalm 103 v 12 and Isaiah 43 v 25).

This was accomplished at the cross of Christ so we now live in those days, we live under grace and not under law (Romans 6 v 14 and 15 and Hebrews 10 v 17).

We live in a time when sin has already been dealt with (Hebrews 10 v 12 to 14).

If God were to now punish the USA because of sin He would be saying that the finished work of Jesus Christ was not actually enough, it would be the “not quite” finished work.

This type of “prophecy” does nothing but spread fear and anxiety and is not Biblical.

What are you going to believe; Biblical truth or a so-called prophet?

I’ll leave the choice up to you.

Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord that my sin and the sin of the whole world was dealt with through the finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross”.

1 John 2 v 2…..And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world
