Salvation is open to all

There are many people out there that think they have done something in the past that was so horrible and so disgusting that God will never forgive them.   They are ashamed of some of the despicable acts in which they have willingly participated.  Others have been abused and somehow feel it was their fault and they feel that they are less than worthless.  Still, there are those who has used God’s name in vain, denied that there is a god, or even blasphemed his name.  They have this sense of guilt that’s ever present and they have this inner awareness that there is just no hope for them.  This is called condemnation and Jesus did not come to condemn; John 3:17, “For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.”

            Friends, there is good news; Jesus came just for you; Mt. 9:13, “…..for I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.”  Jesus came for the sinners and he promised to forgive them for their sins; Mark. 3:28, “verily I say unto you, all sins shall be forgiven unto the sons of men, and blasphemies wherewith soever they shall blaspheme.”  All sin will be forgiven; regardless of its magnitude!

            The gift of forgiveness or salvation is available to all; John 3:16, “…..God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”  Salvation is for everyone; Rom. 1:16, “…..I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth.”  Scripture clearly states that whosoever and everyone has the hand of salvation extended to them and all forms of sin and all kinds of sin will be forgiven. 

            There is only one requirement to receive this gift of salvation.  You must repent and turn from your past; Luke 13:1-3, “….. except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.”  Relax, all of you have an escape route from your past sins; it is believing that Jesus Christ died for your sins and you have to repent or change your former lifestyle.

            There is probably someone out there thinking that they have missed the mark, because there is one sin for which no one can be forgiven.  That is absolutely correct; it is the unpardonable sin; or blasphemy of the Holy Ghost.  No one can be forgiven for this sin; Mt. 12:32, “…..whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come.”  The unpardonable sin is entirely different from all other sins.  One must first have the Holy Ghost working prevalently in their life before he or she can commit the unpardonable sin.   If you are worried that you might have committed this atrocious sin; you are safe.  The unpardonable sin cannot be accidental; its takes a conscious effort.  One has to know exactly what they are doing.  Just like one cannot commit rape accidentally; one cannot commit the unpardonable sin accidentally.

            Salvation is truly available to all.  It is not God’s will that any man should perish; 2 Pet. 3:9, “…..Lord is not slack concerning his promise…..but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.”  So if you haven’t repented, please do so now because you are a whosoever.
