I want you to know that absolutely we can be forgiven for past sins. That is the whole reason Jesus gave His life on the cross. All we need to do is; believe, confess to the Lord, be truly regretful (repent) and ask forgiveness. That is the good news, (Gospel) – that for those who seek the Lord, their sins are no longer a barrier between them and God. What Jesus’ death did was take those sins out of the way making us acceptable to God. So now, any who choose to come, will be accepted through Jesus Christ. You are forgiven.
1) (Romans 3:24 [AKJV])
Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:
(Romans 3:25 [AKJV])
Whom God has set forth to be a propitiation* through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God;
(Romans 3:26 [AKJV])
To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believes in Jesus.
2) (Ephesians 1:4 [Wesley])
As he hath chosen us through him, before the foundation of the world, that we might be holy and blameless before him in love,
(Ephesians 1:5 [Wesley])
Having predestinated us to the adoption of sons(or children) to himself by Jesus Christ, according to the good pleasure of his will,
(Ephesians 1:6 [Wesley])
To the praise of the glory of his grace,
(Ephesians 1:7 [Wesley])
by which he hath freely accepted us through the beloved, By whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our sins,
“Propitiation” is a serious word. You should study it. It means that Jesus did two very important and essential things. One thing for the Father and one thing for you and I. For the Father, what He did was to satisfy the just wrath of God against sin and sinners. He did that by taking our sin and our place under the wrath of God on the cross, shedding His own blood for us and dying there in our place. For us, he removed the sin problem from us. No longer can sin disqualify us from the work of God in our hearts and lives. No longer can sin rob us of eternal life. We have been freed from the consequences of sin by Jesus Christ and through faith in Him.
Also, we may now be changed by Him progressively as the Spirit of God works in our heart, (inner man). That is called sanctification. Having the forgiveness of sins enables the Spirit of God to abide in us and transform us, even to the degree that we no longer are overpowered by sin.
(2 Peter 1:3 [AKJV])
According as his divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that has called us to glory and virtue:
(2 Peter 1:4 [AKJV])
Whereby are given to us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these you might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.
This is our gift as we wait for the coming of Jesus Christ when we shall be eternally changed and secured in a sinless state forever, free from death and sorrow and pain and corruption of heart and body.
Please pray to the Lord and ask for the forgiveness and the strength to resist future sins. Seek Him daily and read the bible. Time is running short and as you can see, the world is changing rapidly and it’s not good. Trust the Lord Jesus Christ, He is your strength.
