One of the major mistakes in the church today is trying to receive forgiveness and asking God for forgiveness.
This is silly to do as we have already been forgiven.
We are told in the Word that we have been forgiven (past tense) for all trespasses (Colossians 2 v 13).
We are told in the Word that we have redemption and forgiveness through the blood of Jesus (Colossians 1 v 14).
We are told in the Word that we have redemption and forgiveness as a gift of grace through the blood of Jesus (Ephesians 1 v 7).
As an individual you need to believe what the Word says and not what another man tells you.
You do not need to ask for forgiveness from God, you have already been forgiven.
Jesus has dealt with ALL sin (including yours) and you have been reconciled and forgiven.
Indeed everyone has been forgiven.
So am I saying everyone has been saved?
No that is not what I am saying, as a man needs to choose to receive Jesus as Lord and Saviour and therefore receive salvation.
Forgiveness and reconciliation means that people now have the opportunity to choose salvation.
You, and everyone, have already been forgiven.
Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord that I have already been forgiven”.
Colossians 2 v 13…..And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses
