Then I acknowledged my sin to you and did not cover up my iniquity. I said, “I will confess my transgressions to the Lord.” And you forgave the guilt of my sin. Psalm 32:5
There is a process that we MUST FOLLOW, in order to gain FORGIVENESS, from the Almighty God. The first step in this procedure is to ACKNOWLEDGE the fact that you are a SINNER and to ACKNOWLEDGE your sins. Notice that David says that he did NOT COVER UP his iniquity or sin, instead he did what we ALL MUST Do, and that leads us to our second step.
The second step of the procedure to gain God’s FORGIVENESS is to CONFESS our sins to Him. Don’t think you can HIDE anything from God, He is ALL KNOWING, and is EVERYWHERE at the same time. So you might as well get it off your chest and CONFESS ALL your sins to Him. NO COVER-UPS, just a plain, simple HEART-FELT, sincere, CONFESSION.
When you have ACKNOWLEDGED that you are a SINNER, and have SINNED against God. And when you CONFESS those sins to Him, SEEKING His FORGIVENESS. He will FORGIVE you for the FACT that you committed and are GUILTY of those sins. 1 John 1:9 says, “If we CONFESS our sins He is FAITHFUL and JUST and WILL FORGIVE us our sins and PURIFY us from ALL unrighteousness.” Psalm 103:12, tells us: “As far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our transgressions.” Hebrews 8:12, also tells us this PROMISE: “For I will FORGIVE their wickedness and will REMEMBER their sins NO MORE.” TOTALLY FORGIVEN!
If you have NOT followed these three steps to gaining FORGIVENESS, then you are headed to an ETERNITY in Hell, with ALL its HORRORS, and NO WAY of ESCAPING. However, you are being given one more opportunity, and this might be your LAST, to FOLLOW these steps. You can do it by: TURNING AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle and TURNING TO God, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART, this is ACKNOWLEDGEMENT. Then you MUST CONFESS your sins to Him and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS. You MUST BELIEVE, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU, and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God. You MUST ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and become a TRUE Child of God, with an ETERNITY in Heaven, and ALL its BLESSINGS. (This is GOD’S FORGIVENESS) So, DO THIS NOW, while you STILL can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
