WILL JESUS FORGIVE PRESENT, FUTURE SIN?

Will Jesus forgive your presence sins that you are doing today and your future sins? Lots of Christians like to believe that Jesus will forgive their past present and future sins and they preach that too. But let us not listen to what people say, let us see what GOD says. What does Jesus say. What does Jesus think about our present and future sins. How does God view sin. Never mind what you think about sin. Nevermind what somebody else thinks about sin. How does GOD look at sin. That's what we're going to look at. Now I want to read from Exodus to 33:33 to begin with where the Lord says, “Whoever has sinned against me, him I will blot out my book”. Jesus said in Luke 13:3 that unless you repent all of you, you will likewise perish…

And Paul warns in Hebrews 10:26 that “if we go on sinning willfully after we have received the knowledge of the truth the knowledge of Jesus Christ, there remains no more sacrifice for our sins but a certain fearful expectation of God's judgment. Now we read in 1John 5 that “we know that whoever is born of God sinneth not, but he that is begotten of God keeps himself that the wicked one toucheth him not, and we know that we are of God and that the whole world lies in wickedness.”…. “So do you not realize that those who do wrong will not inherit the kingdom of God. Don't fool yourselves, those who indulge in sexual sin or worship idols or who will commit adultery or are prostitutes or practice homosexuality, or thieving, or greedy, drunkards, abusive, cheating people, none of these will inherit the kingdom of God”. 1 Corinthians 6:9.

Now Jesus warns in revelation 2:4 to the church, to Christians. He warns that “I have this against you that you not love me as you did at first, look how far you have fallen, turn back to me and do the works that you did at first. If you do not repent I'll come against you and I will come and remove your lampstand from its place among the churches”. Jesus is warning very specifically here. I want to read on in Hebrews 12:15 where Paul writes: “Be diligent lest any man fail the grace of God, fail the grace of God, lest any root of bitterness spring up and therefore defile, lest there be any fornicators or profane persons like Esau who for one moral sold his birthright, for we know that afterwards when he would have inherited the blessing he was rejected. He found no place of repentance though he sought it carefully with tears”…You see many Christians cannot repent anymore because they have found no place to repent and fallen deep into sin. “Many will say unto me”, says the Lord in matthew 7:22, “Lord Lord did not we do lots of things in your name and cast out demons and do many miracles? But I will say to them, Depart from me I do not know you, you workers of inequity.” These are people who go on in sin presently and in the future.

So I want to talk about the blotting the names out of the book of life and I want to expose to you How you keep your name in the book of life because we have read in exodus 32:33 that whoever has sinned against me says the Lord, him I will blot out of my book. Now Jesus Christ came and he died for our sins so that we could be forgiven for all these sins that would have our names blotted out of Gods book, that if we repent we will not have out names blotted out. And that is what Jesus said in revelation 3:5 he said “He who overcomes, (now overcoming is overcoming your evil desires, overcoming sin) He will be clothed in white garments and I will not blot out his name from the book of life but I will confess his name before God”. Now Jesus said in the parable of the 10 talents that the LAZY servant that did not increase his talent who was a Christian, he just lived in the world and he didnt care to grow the talent he was give through faith and obedience to Christ, rather he hid his talent in the ground and Jesus came back and asked him, “What have you done?” Because we are all going to be called before God to account for what we did about Jesus Christ and his wonderful gift to us. And this man said “I knew you were a hard man and you reap where you didn't sow so I was scared and I just hid it in the ground, I didn't do anything for the Lord”. And Jesus said “Have this worthless servant cast out into the outer darkness where there will be a weeping and gnashing of teeth”.

And Jesus goes on to say about the 5 bridesmaids and the 5 wise bridesmaids, 5 foolish Christians were waiting for Jesus with no oil in their lamp. They were not serious about him and Jesus came and took the wise virgins who were waiting and ready keeping themselves from evil and keeping oil in their lamp through the Holy Spirit, into the wedding feast of the lamb. And he shut the door and the foolish virgins who were out trying to get some oil quickly, they were trying to repent and get their lives right again, and it was too late and Jesus said “Behold I do not know you nor where you are from depart from here”. And they went away sadly and they never entered. You see if you do not want to be caught out, you got to look at what GOD thinks about your continued sin. What does GOD THINK and that is what we have looked at today. Now you can listen to man all you like and he is going to hell you, “You are forgiven and you can go on in evil (any sin)”, but we have just read some very serious words from God and if you do not heed what GOD SAYS then you will have no excuse on the day of Judgement!!...
