Forgiven Forever now Receive Eternal Life

Behold the Lamb of God that took away the sins of the world.

When Jesus came upon John the Baptist preaching to the people to repent and believe in the one to come and take away the sins of the world, John saw Jesus and said, "Behold the Lamb of God that takes away the sin of the world." John 1:29

Well folks, I'm here to tell you, "Behold the Lamb of God that took away the sin of the world."

You see, when Jesus, God in the flesh died on the cross, he placed upon himself the penalty for every sin committed in the world, past, present, and future.

Now, that yours, mine, and the world's sin have been taken away, there is only one thing to do. That is believe that Jesus did it, finished it, took sin away from being a barrier to coming to God and thank him for what he did, and receive new life.

The Catholic church teaches that you must get your sins forgiven in a confession booth. Many Protestant churches teach that you don't have to go to a confession booth to get your sins forgiven, but you can ask Jesus to forgive your sins directly. Both of these are wrong. You don't get your sins forgiven today, because you already got your sins forgiven before you were ever born, at the cross where Jesus died.

In God's sight, "without the shedding of blood," there is no forgiveness. And, I can tell you this, Jesus is not going to hang on a cross again for the sins of the whole world.

Logic is key. If you are thinking, God must be really hacked at me for all the wrong I have done, or for not going to church, or for not doing the right things, or for yelling and getting angry with others, or worse yet, a thief, murder, adulterer, or place your worst imaginable thought here, then you are completely wrong in your thinking of God. God knows everyone is not perfect, and only perfection will do in God's sight, to have eternal life. So, God did for us, what we could not do for ourselves. He cleansed us so he could fill us with a new life.

Receive the forgiveness that is in Christ Jesus, and you will be saved onto a new life.

Words are key. The word is receive not get. When you receive something from God, it should be with a thankful heart. Put away your prideful thinking that you have to do something in order for God to do something. This is from satan, the prince of lies. There is only one way to eternal salvation.

Believe in Jesus and receive eternal life.
