Are Our Future Sins Forgiven?

In John 19:29-30, after He had a drink of sour wine, Jesus said, “It is finished,” and this is thought by many to mean that a Christian’s past, present and future sins are all finished with, all forgiven.

But what was Jesus referring to when He said, “It is finished”?

When Jesus drank the sour wine, He was fulfilling the prophecy about Himself in Psa. 69:21. It was immediately after fulfilling this prophecy that He said, “It is finished,”? and He said this because His earthly sufferings and agonies were over at last; while on the earth, He had fulfilled all that was written about Himself in the Law and the Prophets. To finalize His work of redemption, all that was left for Him to do was to give up His Spirit and die, which He did immediately, and then later present His blood in the heavenly Holy Place (Heb. 9:11-12). After this, having died for the sins of the world, forgiveness of sins was available to all mankind through repenting and believing in Him. Full Story

Why should we read the Bible/Study the Bible?Why should we read the Bible/Study the Bible? - The Bible is a book that is not merely for reading. It is a book for studying so that it can be applied. Otherwise, it is like swallowing food without chewing and then spitting it back out again-no nutritional value is gained by it. The Bible is God’s Word. As such, it is as binding as the laws of nature. We can ignore it, but we do so to our own detriment, just as we would if we ignored the law of gravity. It cannot be emphasized strongly enough just how important the Bible is to our lives. Studying the Bible can be compared to mining for gold. If we make little effort and merely “sift through the pebbles in a stream,” we will only find a little gold dust. But the more we make an effort to really dig into it, the more reward we will gain for our effort.

 

In Remembrance
In Rememberance Of: Matilda Whirley | December 7, 1910 - March 5, 1992Matilda Whirley
December 7, 1910 - March 5, 1992

Miss Whirley was a devoted, loving, effectual, caring Christian woman and was a friend to all who needed her. She freely gave wise and timely counsel, based on her life experiences, as she sought to make life go a bit smoother for her family, friends, church members, neighbors and co-workers. Miss Whirley was counted upon to be an integral part of church and community activities and participated and served wherever she could. Her dedication and love of God was evident in all she did. Miss Whirley was a good example of one of God's servants; because of that, we take time to remember her this month.

 

Bible Study
Striking the RockStriking the Rock - The congregation had just settled down to hear a word from the Lord. The Preacher rose and began with a prayer petitioning God to “take me out of self and hide me behind the cross”. He concluded his prayer and began the sermon. As he preached, he began to speak of various goings on within the congregation. In doing so, he made several statements on current events which were easily deduced by the members as being related to a certain members of the congregation. Then - while never mentioning his targets by name -he proceeded to cast aspersions on those members from the pulpit. Denigrating their character through accusation and innuendo and generally attempting to “dress down” the members before the entire congregation. Those members soon realized they were the victims of the dreaded “Attack Sermon”.

 

Health & Wellness
AddictionAddiction - For many fighting this disease, faith is an issue. This person may have thoughts such as, “Others in my family have had the same problem and they could not overcome it why should I think that I can?” You must believe that you are destined for success; begin praying for God to help you and seek the Scriptures. Find a good faith grounded treatment center or support group, then remember that took you a while to get to the point you are at now and it will take a while for you to see lucrative results from your recovery efforts.
