“Empowering the abused woman to recover with God's truth"
“Past, Present, Future”
You’ve been forgiven of your sins—past, present, and future! That’s what “eternal redemption” means. You might think, God can’t forgive me of a sin before I even commit it! Well, you better pray that He can because Christ only died for your sins once. If Jesus can’t forgive a sin before you commit it, then you can’t be forgiven at all. Why? Jesus Christ hasn’t died for sin in over 2,000 years! (Highlighted and bolded by me)
Jesus paid for all sins—past, present, and future. Humans may not think this way, but God does. He’s Eternal—time, distance, and space aren’t problems for Him. Through His perfect sacrifice, God has already dealt with all sins! When Jesus died, He put a will into effect. “By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all” (Heb. 10:10). You were sanctified—separated, made holy—through the offering of Jesus Christ once for all time.
Generally speaking, Pentecostals were the ones who came up with this doctrine of backsliding, that every time you sin, you lose your salvation, and if you don’t confess it before you die, you’ll go to hell despite the fact that you’ve been born again for twenty or thirty years. They erroneously interpret this verse to mean “one sacrifice for all people.”
However, the context proves that Hebrews 10:10 means one sacrifice made you holy for all time. Notice all the words referring to time in the next four verses. “And every priest standeth daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins: But this man [Jesus], after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God; From henceforth expecting till his enemies be made his footstool. For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified” (Heb. 10:11-14, emphasis Andrew’s). Christ’s one offering perfected and sanctified you forever! (This sentence bolded by me)
WOW!!! That is POWERFUL!!! THANK YOU, JESUS!!! THANK YOU, FATHER!!! THANK YOU, HOLY SPIRIT!!! I LOVE YOU FATHER, I LOVE YOU JESUS, I LOVE YOU HOLY SPIRIT!!!
My NOTE: There is no such thing as losing your salvation if you sin (backslide)!! PRAISE GOD!! JESUS paid the price ONCE and for all, for our sins - past, present, and future sins!! IF you sin, you go to Father and thank Him for ALREADY forgiving you!! Because when Jesus took our sins, He gave us His righteousness FOREVER – Jesus WON’T take it back!! God is NOT holding sin against mankind - God IS NOT judging mankind for sins - Jesus ALREADY dealt with sin (Romans 4:6-8)!! Read Psalms 32 - POWERFUL!!
Our salvation is by grace, through faith, in Jesus, not our works (Ephesians 2:8)!!
WOW!! This is HUGE for me!! I never knew this!! I hear stuff like if someone sinned, they were never saved!! And I think that if you did sin, you lost your salvation - you had to repent again!! NO!! You go BOLDLY to God's throne of GRACE, to obtain His MERCY, in a time of need!! Thanking GOD for ALREADY forgiving you, because of Jesus taking your sins, past, present, and future, upon Himself, and given you His RIGHTEOUSNESS, FOREVER - JESUS gave us ETERNAL REDEMPTION and HOLY SPIRIT sealed, sanctified, and perfected our spirits FOREVER (Hebrews 9:11-12; Eph. 1:13)!! WOW!! HUGH!!
Andrew lets us know in Chapter 10, “Fullness Received,” that: Our spirit was created in righteousness and true holiness when we were born again (Eph. 4:24). Then, the Holy Spirit sealed this purity into our brand-new spirit (Eph. 1:13). Any sin we commit now in our physical actions cannot penetrate or contaminate our spirit because it’s been sanctified and perfected forever (Heb. 10:10,14; 12:23). Our born-again spirit cannot sin (1 John 3:9)!
We have received eternal redemption (Heb. 9:12). PRAISE GOD!! This SHOULD NOT make a born-again person want to sin - it SHOULD cause us to love God, Jesus, Holy Spirit more!! Because we have been freed by Jesus to have fellowship with Father God!! PRAISE GOD!! HALLELUJAH!!
THIS IS GOOD BECAUSE GOD IS GOOD!! This makes me realize, God is NOT out to “get us” or do us ANY harm - He loves us UNCONDITIONALLY!! Jeremiah 29:11 comes to my mind, where God says, He know the thoughts that He think towards us, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give us an expected end (KJV)!! But I like the way TLB (Living Bible) says it: “For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord. They are plans for good and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.” PRAISE GOD!!
God loves us and He DOES wants us well!! Everything makes sense now!! God has given me multiple revelations - another one is of His love for me and all mankind!! WOW!! I wanted to share this GREAT REVELATION with you all, praying that God will also open your eyes to His truth!! I want you to KNOW, God loves you, and is NOT out to harm you - God is for you and not against you!!
