Many people wrongly believe that they have been forgiven all their sins, past, present and future, because they have confessed that they believe in Jesus Christ. They have NOT been FORGIVEN! You are only forgiven and Jesus only blots out your sins of the past IF you truly REPENT and turn away from following after sin, the lust of your flesh, and you FOLLOW and OBEY Jesus Christ. He only forgives you if you take on the NEW LIFE, if you are BORN AGAIN of the Spirit of God and of WATER, if you are baptized in water for the washing off of your sin in OBEDIENCE to Jesus; only then does He forgive you and blot out your sin.
You need to STAY with Jesus and OBEY Him, to have eternal life. If you turn back to your sin and if you do not obey Jesus Christ, if you refuse to follow Him but you go after your own mind and after your own lusts YOU WILL PERISH! You are NOT FORGIVEN! Your sins will be held against you, past, present and future IF you do not REPENT, TURN AWAY from your evil ways and follow Jesus Christ.
If you WANT eternal life you have to DENY YOURSELF, stop doing what YOU want to do, pick up your cross and follow Jesus Christ. You WILL bear a cross, you WILL encounter difficulties, you WILL have to deny your flesh, you WILL suffer persecution, you might get killed, you WILL have to give up friends and the things that you like, the pleasures of sin and of this world, and FOLLOW Jesus Christ IF you want eternal life.
You will only have forgiveness, pardon of your sins, if you STOP SINNING, OBEY Jesus and FOLLOW Him. Do not be deceived, OBEY Jesus and you will live. If you refuse to follow Him and obey Him you will perish.
May Jesus bless you.
