Judgement and Punishment / Re: Unforgiveable Sin
« Last post by eaglesway on Today at 02:31:46 AM »
i fell so badly but not because i hated him...i did not want to be an enemy of god...but i fell into very bad sins and i do not know how to undo them...two especially...i have asked him to forgive me but he has not....i cannot fix them or know how to....i did not want to be his enemy or to trample him underfoot...i love him and did not  live like i did though or i would not have sinned...i cannot stop crying... i wan tot come back to him and have been tring all year but he seems to make it clear i crossed the line...it took me 20 years to finally once and for all confess a certain sin and i still do not know how to undo the damage it caused...i am sure ti was him who told me he held all of those things against em and i was nto forgiven fo them...he was very angry with me...i feel so hopeless

"If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from ALL unrighteousness." (1 John 1:9)

God is faithful- even when we are not. Even the most grievous sins are forgiven AND WASHED AWAY when we confess them.

Perhaps it is not the Lord who will not forgive you. I believe He already has, because the scriptures cannot be broken.

"Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God" (Romans 10:17)

If you can "hear" what the word of God is saying to you in 1 John, and begin to thank Him for forgiving you and washing you clean- I believe the condemnation will be broken off of your heart, mind and soul.

Rom 8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death. For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh: That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

I believe your repentance and desire to have fellowship with God is sincere, and it is some sense of law and the voice of the "accuser of the brethen" that is holding you down. Maybe even, you cannot forgive yourself. Trust the Lord'm He knows our faults, weaknesses, etc. As David was forgiven for adultery and murder- their is nothing you have done for which God will not forgive you. He loves you. He sent His son to set you free from the law of sin and death. Embrace His forgiveness and cleansing :o)

Without it you will not be able to walk in freedom from sin, because our deliverance begins when we accept forgiveness- not because we have stopped sinning.

Sin ceases, and death with it, when we embrace life- which comes by grace through faith beginning with forgiveness, and then we grow in sanctification as we learn to trust His faithfulnes towards us. Any faithfulness we develope towards Him is the product of His forgiving, cleansing and empowering us. Us perfecting ourselves is impossible. Only He can grant us grace and growth in love. All we can do is ask.

Matthew 7:7 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 asks receives; and he that seeks finds; and to him that knocks it shall be opened.

9 Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a stone?

10 Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent?

11 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?

I agree about those in Israel "yet to come to Christ" because I think a day will come when they can't deny him anymore when he shows up again. God bless you too, sis.

So there is no distinction "in Christ" between us and Jewish believers, but I think those in Israel who aren't "in Christ" are who was being referred to when Jesus spoke to Nicodemus about being begotten anew.

   Hi I just see those as still     under the slavery of  the Law of Moses    or    "eating  of  " the tree of Knowledge of good and evil....  and yet to   come to   Christ
 
  I  do see those   set free   in Christ as    new creatures  in Him   and   "eating of  " the    the Tree of Life
 
  So we do   have a different   aspect   on   them things  :Peace2:  no worries     though 
 
 
  I am  alright   with it    though ,  God bless   Tom

The Greek "dei humas(P) gennethenai anothen" in John 3:7 is translated as "Ye must be born again"(KJV), "It behoveth you to be born from above"(YLT), and "You(plural) must be begotten anew"(CLV).

The Greek "anagennesas hemas" in 1 Peter 1:3 is translated as "begotten us again"(KJV), "beget us again"(YLT), and "regenerates us"(CLV). I do not see the Greek "anothen" used in John 3:7 translated as "again" or "anew" in this verse.

But notice how God didn't tell them to get naked again. He gave them better garments than they tried to make for themselves. What the Law does is that it exposes the sin that is within the flesh. It exposes a condition which man is not aware of until he tries to obey the Law. When that condition is discovered, God does not leave man in that condition, Jesus saves from sin by his Spirit and tells us not to walk by the Law but continue in the Grace that delivers from sin itself.

That is how man becomes conciliated in his mind to God. Sin causes suffering. God delivers man from sin by the washing, regeneration and rebirth of the Spirit. The devil tries to undo that work by tempting man to return to, and rebuild the sin that which was destroyed.

I think it will take some washing of the Holy Ghost to wash away all consciousness of shame..

I whole heartily agree. :iagree:
How can the Holy Spirit both take shame away from the believer and add to it.

I don't mind answering. First I would point you to the OT understanding of faith which is "faithfulness." Were Adam and Eve faithful? It's funny you brought that up. Notice that the Serpent didn't shame them. He encouraged them to do that which brought about shame.

He encouraged them to eat from the tree of knowledge of good and evil which by its very nature produces shame leading to death.


Both the man and his wife were naked, yet felt no shame.

They felt shame after eating from the tree of knowledge of good and evil ,
the same tree that produced death.
I am saying the fruit from the tree of Life,
 is different from the fruit of the tree of knowledge of Good and evil.
They would not have know shame if they had not eaten from that tree

No it's sin that leads to death. The wages of shame is not death. The wages of sin is death.


Quote
It was when they noticed their nakedness that they sought to be clothed. It was God who gave them better garments. According to Romans 7, what does the Law bring awareness of?
Death.

The Law brings an awareness of sin.
Then who brings awareness of the forgiveness of Sin,
surely not the Devil.
Listening to the adversary is to listen to one who tempts. The Devil would never attempt to convict anyone of sin. He would be ahouse divided against itself.
