True Repentance and Forgiveness

"If we confess our sins,
He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness."
(1 John 1:9)

by Katie Stewart

True repentance ALWAYS has a depth of love for the LORD where sins are freely admitted and sorrow has no face-saving limits.

The LORD Jesus gives us His authority to forgive sin. His authority, His forgiveness, His rules.

But forgiveness is given only after repentance- not before. His authority, His forgiveness, His rules.

True repentance is ALWAYS followed by the fruit of obedience.

If you refuse to forgive others, then He will not forgive you. No mercy shall be measured to you. His authority, His forgiveness, His rules.

God gives us space to repent. But if we waste that opportunity, we prove we are not His.

God is not mocked. God will not always be longsuffering.

When man sins, and then refuses the convicting power of the Holy Spirit to repent of it, this sin is the sin of blasphemy, thus making it unforgivable. At this point in a person's life, should breathe fail to fill their lungs, or their heart fail to beat, their eternal soul would plummet to its punishment.
