Receive these astonishing (yet true) words from your eternal Spiritual Bridegroom today:
“My lovely bride, you may be surprised to learn that your salvation has three extraordinary facets to it.”
“When you believed into Me, you received a triple-crown kiss secured through your union with Me in My death and resurrection:
- complete forgiveness of sins,
- an irreversible identity change, and
- an eternal life change.”
“Today, I want to talk to you about the first facet that you may find difficult to believe: you have been completely forgiven for the sins of your entire lifetime.”
“When you were dead in your transgressions, My Father made you alive together with Me, having forgiven you all your sins.”
“He canceled your lifetime sin debt (including your future sins), nailing it to the cross.”
“If you believe that I forgave all of your sins up until the moment you believed into me, but then after that, you have to ask forgiveness for every sin you commit, then what will happen if you forget one?”
“Imagine that your wealthy earthly husband never wants you to do without anything you need or want, so he deposits a massive sum of money into a savings account to cover every debt you will incur throughout your lifetime.”
“But there’s a catch.”
“Your checking account has a zero balance.”
“Every time you write a check, you have to tell him what you bought and how much it cost.”
“Then you have to ask him to transfer the exact amount from the savings account to cover your transaction so that you won’t overdraw your checking account.”
“While you would be extremely thankful your generous husband always agrees to pay each debt, the consequences (overdraft fees, embarrassment) will be costly if you forget even one.”
‘If you are anxious about the possibility that some of your sins have not been forgiven because you can’t remember them all, then rest easy.”
“I deposited My unlimited riches into your checking account instead! You never have to worry about incurring hefty insufficient funds fees for unconfessed debts.”
“Will this knowledge make you any less appreciative of My overwhelming generosity?”
“Of course not!”
“It will make you even more thankful that you can lay your head on your pillow every night and sleep in sweet peace, knowing that you will never have to work to pay off your sin debt.”
“I really did pay it all with the first and only forgiveness deposit the moment you and I were joined together in sacred union.”
“Now when you realize you are sinning, you can agree with Me that sinning is not natural for My holy bride and thank Me that you have already been forgiven.”
“As you depend on Me, I will empower you to stop acting like your dead old self and start living like the new creation in Me that you already are.”
Dear reader, what difference would it make in your life if you really believed that you have already been forgiven for the sins of your lifetime?
