WHAT DOES THE BIBLE SAY ABOUT-REPENTANCE,THE BLOOD OF JESUS,FORGIVENESS & SALVATION

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.”

John 3:16-17 KJV

Jesus Christ came to earth to give his own blood for your sins. He did not die so that you could keep on sinning and go to heaven. Jesus came to save you from both the guilt and power of sin. Jesus destroyed the works of the devil on Calvary. When you are unsaved, sin has dominion over you. Sin is your boss and you cannot do anything but sin. You are justly under the wrath of a holy and just God. We have to be born again into the kingdom of God. You have to REPENT of your sins, that means turn from them and BELIEVE that Jesus died for your sins, was buried, and rose again on the third day. Having done these things, you will be born again and the Lord Jesus Christ will help you to walk uprightly. Righteousness comes by repenting of our sins and believing on the Lord Jesus Christ and his blood that was shed to pay for our sins. God is holy. We are sinful. By his very nature, God cannot have fellowship with us sinners. There is no amount of “good” that we can do to make up for our crimes against God. They must be punished. In spite of man’s wickedness and rebellion, God so loved us that He sent His ONLY BEGOTTEN Son, Jesus, to die for our sins. The Bible says, “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” Romans 6:23 KJV  When we REPENT and BELIEVE in Jesus, we are born again and all things become new. A new life emerges and things change. We start reading the Bible and obeying it and the Lord Jesus helps us obey it more and more. Our life changes. Our desires change. The blood of Jesus took away the guilt of the sins that we have committed and it has ushered us into a relationship with the Lord God. Through the blood of Jesus, we are to serve sin no more, rather we serve righteousness. If you get saved and sin, you confess your sin and the Lord will forgive you, but you no longer walk in the sin lifestyle of wickedness. The Bible says, “My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous: And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for our’s only, but also for the sins of the whole world.” 1 John 2:1-2 KJV  Through faith in the blood of Jesus you will escape the wrath to come, have abundant life now, and heaven as your home. God will be your Father instead of your enemy, but only through the blood of Jesus. The Lord Jesus Christ is the only means appointed by God by which we can know God and be saved. After His death, our precious Lord’s body laid in the grave three days, but praise be to God, it did not remain there. Death could not hold him back, it was not possible that he should be holden of it. Jesus Christ is the life and God manifested in the flesh. The Bible says, “And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.” 1 Timothy 3:16 KJV  Death could not hold him. On the third day Jesus arose from the dead and was seen by over 500 people before He went back to heaven. Jesus Christ came to earth to give his own blood for your sins. That is what he came to do and he was and is the only one qualified to do it. After he accomplished this tremendous feat, he rose from the dead just like he said he would. Just as it is in the Bible, “For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:” 1 Corinthians 15:3-4 KJV  THERE IS ONLY ONE WAY TO PLEASE GOD AND GET TO HEAVEN AND THAT IS THROUGH HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON, THE LORD JESUS CHRIST, WHO SHED HIS PRECIOUS BLOOD TO PAY FOR OUR SINS. JESUS CHRIST IS THE ONLY WAY TO GOD. Are you ready to repent of your sins? To repent means to forsake your evil ways and live God’s way according to his word. Are you ready to listen finally? All your life you’ve been your own authority about what is right and what is wrong. You’ve made your own decisions while ignoring what the Lord says in His holy word, the Bible. You’ve served yourself and not God. Realize that you have lived under your own authority. You’ve lived the way that YOU have wanted to. Understand in your mind that you’ve lived in sin against God’s word. Think it through and count the cost. Jesus made no promises that you will have an easy life. In fact, the Bible teaches that all that will live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution. Are you willing to live as one of the despised, saved, holy, overcoming, victorious ones? The Bible says, “And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent:” Acts 17:30 KJV  You can overcome Satan in your lives and the lives of our loved ones by claiming the atoning work of Christ and His blood shed for us. The Bible says, “And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.” Revelation 12:11 KJV  Our faith in what the blood of Jesus does for us will bring us the victory. Jesus waits with open arms for those that want life. The choice is yours. So now would be the time to open your heart and put your Trust and Faith in Jesus Christ, because He is the One that died on the cross to pay the penalty for your sins, so you could have the free gift of eternal life. Amen
