I just never learn with regards to some things!
In the hotel this afternoon I had on a Christian TV channel, but had to switch it off very quickly.
It got switched off when a ‘famous’ teacher started telling me I had to humble myself, pray, seek His face and turn from my wicked ways and then God would forgive me (2 Chronicles 7 v 14).
So why did I switch off; because I did not want to listen to mixture, to listen to a Biblical concept that is not meant for me to live by today.
If you think you can do anything to receive forgiveness you are saying you have not been forgiven yet.
If you think you can do anything to receive forgiveness you are living in unbelief and do not understand the truths about law and grace, about the Old and New Covenant.
If you think you can do anything to receive forgiveness you do not really understand what Jesus did at the cross.
Forgiveness from God is a done deal; we were forgiven through, and only through, the shed blood of Jesus, and Jesus has already shed His blood.
Doing something to receive forgiveness is an Old Covenant principle and is not for those living under grace (Romans 6 v 14).
You cannot do anything today to receive forgiveness as you have already been forgiven through the finished work of Jesus Christ.
There is however a couple of things you do need to do with regards to forgiveness; you need to thank God for it, you need to believe this truth and you need to receive it.
Forgiveness is a done deal, the church needs to stop living as if we are under the Old Covenant and start living as if we understand the Covenant that we now live under.
Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord that I have already been forgiven for all my sin, past, present and future”.
Ephesians 1 v 7…..In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace.
