Happy 2016 everyone! God is soooooo GOOD!!! Did you know that forgiveness of sins did not just start with the coming on Jesus? God has always offered us forgiveness of sin. So many people dismiss the Old Testament as no longer relevant, but I’m here to tell you the God of the Old Testament is the same compassionate God of the New Testament.
In Ezekiel 18:21-23 AMP God says, but if a wicked man turns away from all his sins that he committed and keeps my statutes and does that which is lawful and right he shall surely live; he shall not die. None of his transgressions which he has committed shall be remembered against him for his righteousness which he has executed [for his moral and spiritual rectitude in every area and relation], he shall live. Have I any pleasure in the death of the wicked? Says the Lord, and not rather that he should turn away from his evil way and return [to his God] and live? Ezekiel 18:30 AMP ends by stating Repent and turn from all your transgressions, lest iniquity be your ruin and so shall they not be a stumbling block to you.
