Our Sins

           Read our scripture below, and do understand this was written to the Jews.    However, Paul tells us in:

(Hebrews 8:12 KJB)  For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more.

So we, those of us who have accepted Jesus Christ as our personal Saviour, can know our sins will not be remembered by God no more. 
            Some have told me, that to be forgiven is the equivalent of Salvation.  Jesus died on the cross, for you and I.  He died so that we might have Salvation and that we might have the opportunity to be saved from Hell.  We are told in:

(Romans 10:9 KJB)  That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

            In other words that if I will believe that God raised Jesus from the grave, and confess Jesus to others, that He would save me.  There is no other requirement, nothing else to do.  Once we have accepted Jesus, and we know He is our Lord, and then we need to come to Him with a sincere heart and ask Him to help you identify your sins and help you remove them from your life.  

(Hebrews 10:22 KJB)  Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water.

            When we go to God it must be with a sincere, true heart, then we need to clear our heart from all evil thoughts, grudges and hate.  We need to be as spiritually clean as we can get.  
            So the question remains, have you gone to the Lord recently asking for His forgiveness of your current sins?  In some of us it might need to be a daily thing, but regardless it ought to be done with a sincere repentant heart.  Knowing you have sinned against God.  What are you going to do?

(Ephesians 2:12-14 KJB)  That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world: 13  But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ.  14  For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us;
