 Re: can god forgive me

Dear Godknowsme,

I was an adultress, a liar, a drunk, a thief, a blasphemer, and so much more. For 15 years I sank deeper into thinking I'd gone too far and and that because I'd trampled Jesus' blood and there would be no release from my sin and no mercy from Him.

It has been 7 years since my repentence and return. While satan tells you it's beyond hope, the Holy Spirit brings remembrence of the promise of the word of God. The Lord in His faithfulness caused me to see how at the bottom David was in all his deceitfulness and hypocrisy. I believe this was written for people like you and myself. Don't be surprised if some won't even believe your confessions. The important thing is that Jesus really really is merciful.

I have a great burden and obligation to those that have been in my position. If he took me back he will most definitly take you.

I will agree with all those here that you will fully commit to be clean. Oh, you'll never regret it and you'll come out fighting against the enemy for all its worth. May the Lord Jesus give you grace and strength even this very hour.

God Bless, K

 Re: can god forgive me

Confess, repent, and turn from your wickedness.

I will pray for you, your wife/family and the people that you've hurt. May His will be done.

 Re: can god forgive me

Your shame, your guilt, your sin is known to God.
Be honest before Him and confess your shame, your
guilt, and your sin. There is mercy at the foot
of the cross and pardon because of the precious
Son of God; because of His righteous sacrifice!!
You must let God work in you a contrite heart
that is grieved over your sin and turn from your
selfish pride and ways. God will forgive if you
truly repent. He will create a new heart and
a right spirit with you. Read Psalm 51.

 Re:

Hey, I saw this song tonight and thought of you and one other person on sermonindex:

Come, ye sinners, poor and needy,
Weak and wounded, sick and sore;
Jesus ready stands to save you,
Full of pity, love and power.

[i]Refrain[/i]

I will arise and go to Jesus,
He will embrace me in His arms;
In the arms of my dear Savior,
O there are ten thousand charms.

Come, ye thirsty, come, and welcome,
God’s free bounty glorify;
True belief and true repentance,
Every grace that brings you nigh.

[i]Refrain[/i]

Come, ye weary, heavy laden,
Lost and ruined by the fall;
If you tarry till you’re better,
You will never come at all.


Here's an audio version
[url=http://www.theopenlife.com/music/erinalderson/era_volume_5/04_come_ye_sinners.mp3]Come Ye Sinners[/url]

If you want to be saved by his free and gracious gift, and you understand that salvation will mean a life of sorrows over failures, attacks from the devil, persecutions and doubts, and many other costs... and if you believe God gives enough grace to endure all of this [b]whomever He wishes[/b]... then understand that the ones He wishes to give it to are called "whosoever". Accept that today, if God wills, you are saved by His grace through repentance from dead works and faith in Christ. Cease from known sin, because it pleases God. When you fail, cease again. Cry out for grace to show you the way! He is good to all who come.

If it may help you, here is my testimony, which at the beginning sound similar to yours:

God bless you.

 Re:

1 Timothy 1:15-17 This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save [b]sinners[/b]; of whom I am chief. (16). Howbeit for this cause I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might show forth all longsuffering, for a pattern to them which should hereafter believe on him to life everlasting. (17). Now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen.

 Re: can god forgive me

does god really really really love a person who knew him and then did so much evil like pornography and lying and blaspheming and stealing and lying to steal money from orphans and widows and lying about visions and comitting adultery and manipulating and using gods name to steal peoples faith for years?these are my sins and many more and im ashamed to even name them and i dont want to live this way anymore.im trapped in a black hole and i cant get out.I went to bed last night begging god to forgive me and trying to repent but i love my sin so much and im afraid i am going to just keep being evil.i gave up my begging god within just minutes discouraged that he hates me.i dont even know what to do anymore.how long does it take for a heart like mine so filled with sin and devils to be cleaned?can it be?what must i do to be saved?it sounds so easy to just say jesus come and be with me but i know ive hurt him so badly i even think god hates me with a bad hatred and that he has no love for me at all and that ive crossed the line and he wont ever save me now because of all ive done.i came to this sermon site because i know this is the only place i can ask for prayer and know you will pray for me and i realy need answers to being saved.my flesh knows that i have to give all to jesus but i dont even know how to do that to just give everything to him how do i do that and know i have done it right?

I will pray.

Conviction by the Holy Spirit of God is a GREAT MERCY. It is a real start. Have you thanked Him?

 Re:

1Jo 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

The question isn't if God loves you after all this. The question is "does God still love and honor the sacrifice of Christ for sinners" after all this. Is the blood of Christ able to cleanse even the worst of sins? Is it?

If God still loves His Son, and honors His Son's sacrifice, and His blood is able to cover even the most heinous of crimes, then that settles your questions once for all. The promise of God stands sure: Confess your sins and God will be faithful and just to His Son's sacrifice to forgive them and to cleanse you from all unrighteousness.

Don't dare keep thinking that your sin is greater than the GRACE of GOD!!!

Keep calling on the name of the Lord in desperation until you know He has forgiven you:

Rom 10:11-13 For the Scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. (12). For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. (13). For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

Whosoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved. This means even YOU. You are a part of "whosoever". The same Lord is rich unto ALL (not some, not most, but ALL) who call upon Him -even the most despicable, filthy, wretched sinners! Keep confessing, keep repenting, keep seeking!

Mat 7:7-8 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: (8). For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.

 Help from above

God is Love, that is the basic characteristic of what and who God is, however if indeed you have done these things or for anyone who may have done things like this or other things and reads this I'll post some realities about this christian walk. Confession and repentance is the principle thing, I believe it was Baxter who said that the circle of your repentance should equal the circle of your offense.We know that without faith it is impossible to please God, but our conscience plays a big part in the day to day operation of our faith, (there is a supernatural impartation of the gift of faith, thats not what I speak of here), we need a clear conscience to approach God and sometimes even after repentance and confession our faith seems like it's just not there because our conscience keeps us bound, sometimes what we hear/feel/think, is from our advesary the devil who comes to accuse/vex our souls but often times whats needed is Time. And while the blood of Jesus will cleanse us it seems that Time and Process are equally important to the fixing of the human conscience. You will need to get Godly Christian counsiling and learn to live in the NOW reality of God, Today, not yesterday nor tomarrow, today, "this day I give thee O'Lord", Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses....today...and lead us...today....

There will be conquences to your sins, to be sure because your actions have touched and affected others lives, but you will will learn to lay aside those weights and sins that so Easily beset you (our tackle you as you run this race), as you daily look unto Jesus the Author and Finisher of your faith. So take a fresh hold on Jesus Christ daily. Reguardless of what you think or feel,daily read and think on His written Word and fix your attentions on the Lord's character. Much I could say but I believe that enough. 2Ti 2:19 Nevertheless, God's solid foundation stands firm, having this inscription: The Lord knows those who are His, and Everyone who names the name of the Lord must turn away from unrighteousness.
