This is going to completely revolutionise the way I share the Gospel with people. In the past I would go up to people with little clarity, and tell them that Jesus died for their sins and use the law to explain what sin is. And encourage them to believe in Jesus who died for their sins to be forgiven.
But since this revelation I’m taking a different approach.
“ALL” means “ALL!” It is past tense, approximately 2000 years ago, Jesus already forgave us all our sins- past present and future!
Paul was talking to believers saying that all their sins- past, present and future have already been forgiven when Jesus died on the Cross.
Hebrews 10:14 because by one sacrifice he has made perfect FOREVER those who are being made holy.
And the otherswho became priests were numerous, because death prevented themfrom continuing in office,but he holds his priesthood permanently since he lives forever. So he is able to save completely those who come to God through him, because he always lives to intercede for them.
It’s not like the Old Covenant when people had to offer sacrifice for their past and present sins, week after week months after months to cover this sins of this week and the sins fo this month etc…
That’s why they needed many sacrifices because it couldn’t cover future sins.
But when Jesus came, by One Sacrifice He had made us Perfect FOREVE… Once and for ALL
He made us perfect FOREVER indicating that our FUTURE sins have been forgiven!
Once for ALL indicating that He died Once to pay for sins of All time compared to OT sacrifices Many deaths for all time.
He died Once to cover our future sins as well so we could be made perfect FOREVER (indicating future sins wiped out) and Once and for All (indicating for all time there be no need for further sacrifices because He was the Final Ultimate Sacrifice that could cover ALL sin in just One Sacrifice).
When sharing the Gospel, I would say to an unbeliever that…
Mankind walked in perfect companionship with our Creator until our crime separated us from Him.
Then Jesus’ Sacrifice changed God’s way of relating to us. Instead of punishing us, he judged all our trespasses on King Jesus- our lying, cheating, stealing, immorality etc…
We deserved nothing but wrath and hell. God loved us so much He extended mercy and grace to rebellious planet earth and set us free from all debt.
There is no more judgment for your but the sin of unbelief.
Disbelief is the root of all sin. Stealing, you don’t believe God will provide for you. Adultery, you don’t believe that the wife God gave you is enough. Revenge, you don’t believe vengeance belongs to God.
God is not here to condemn or judge you to everlasing punishment. God doesn’t send anyone to hell but saves them from hell. People only go there by choice if they reject the message about the King’s Love and offer of everlasting life. 6
God is Merciful & Graceful Father who wants to reunite us to Him!
Understand + Believe = Forgiveness + Everlasting life + Reunion
How God relates to an unbeliever before death:
1)He sees you Already forgiven of past present and future sins through Jesus death 2000 years ago.
2)He’s not here to condemn or judge you for all your sins because He already judged it on Jesus and He is just and cannot judge the same sin twice- the law of double jeopardy
3)He sees you with His arms reached out already; all you have to do is reach out your arms in faith and you will be reconnected to Him. He has already done everything He can, is upto you to believe what He has already done and Receive it.
4)The only sin He will judge you for is the sin of unbelief which is the same as Blasphemy against the Holy Spirit.
Colossians 3:13 bearing with one another and forgiving one another, if someone happens to have a complaint against anyone else. Just as the Lord has forgiven (PAST TENSE) you, so you also forgive others.
We can forgive because He already forgave us.
