After you REPENT from all your sins against GOD, then what?
At some point in your walk with GOD you have to know GOD through the revelation knowledge of JESUS CHRIST for yourself, and your faith, belief, and salvation, has to be built upon a sure FOUNDATION/JESUS!~
At some point in your walk with GOD the knowledge of GOD becomes a matter of life and death for you, and you must have a real personal relationship with GOD through the revelation knowledge of GOD in CHRIST JESUS for yourself!~
There are many people who come to GOD, and they repent of their sins, but they lack the revelation knowledge of GOD in CHRIST JESUS!~
And for this cause many people become legalistic, religious, judgmental, and they become consumed and tormented with a sin conscience, because they’re always conscience of sin, but totally ignorant of the knowledge of GOD in CHRIST JESUS, the truth of GOD in CHRIST JESUS, the grace of GOD in CHRIST JESUS, and the mercy of GOD in CHRIST JESUS!~
And you will know them by the fruit of their lips, because their always talking about sin, the bondage of sin, the judgment of sin, hell, hell fire, and the consequences of sin, as if there is no balm in Gilead, as if there is no freedom in CHRIST JESUS, as if there is no grace and mercy in CHRIST JESUS!
(Hebrews 10:1-20) For the law having a shadow of good things to come, and not the very image of the things, can never with those sacrifices which they offered year by year continually make the comers thereunto perfect. For then would they not have ceased to be offered? Because that the worshippers once purged should have had no more conscience of sins. But in those sacrifices there is a remembrance again made of sins every year.
For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins. Wherefore when he comes into the world, he said, Sacrifice and offering you would not, but a body has you prepared me: In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin you has had no pleasure.
Then said I, Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of me,) to do thy will, O God. Above when he said, Sacrifice and offering and burnt offerings and offering for sin thou would not, neither has pleasure therein; which are offered by the law; Then said he, Lo, I come to do your will, O God. He takes away the first, that he may establish the second.
By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all. And every priest stands daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins: But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God; From henceforth expecting till his enemies be made his footstool.
For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified. Whereof the Holy Ghost also is a witness to us: for after that he had said before, This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them; And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more. Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin. Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus, By a new and living way, which he has consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh;
Brothers and sisters, The revelation knowledge of GOD in CHRIST JESUS is a matter of life and death for all who claim to believe, because many of GOD’S people are destroyed, and perish, simply, for their lack of knowing GOD through the revelation knowledge of JESUS CHRIST!~
Brothers and sisters, If you don’t know GOD for yourself through the revelation knowledge of JESUS CHRIST, then people can tell you anything about GOD, and they will make GOD seem like a tyrant, an unmerciful GOD, and a judgmental GOD who is always waiting on you to sin or mess up, so he could judge you severely without grace or mercy!
Brothers and sisters, I drive trucks for a living, and I deliver merchandise to a variety of grocery stores, whole sale department stores, coffee shops, and warehouses, but at this one store inside the post office depot, there is the blind man who runs this store inside the post office by himself.
And the amazing thing about this blind man named Bill is this, he knows everything about the store, the merchandise in the store, and he knows whole post office building like the back of his hand, everyone there knows blind Bill, and blind Bill knows everyone by their voice alone!~
But what’s more amazing is the word GOD gave me through watching blind Bill, GOD SAID, “Bill is a blind man who knows things a blind man should not know, and does things a blind man should not be doing, But there are many people who claim to believe in me, know me, follow me, and claim to be my disciples, but they don’t know me like they supposed to know me!”
(Jeremiah 9:1-6) Oh that my head were waters, and mine eyes a fountain of tears, that I might weep day and night for the slain of the daughter of my people!
Oh that I had in the wilderness a lodging place of wayfaring men; that I might leave my people, and go from them! for they be all adulterers, an assembly of treacherous men.
And they bend their tongues like their bow for lies: but they are not valiant for the truth upon the earth; for they proceed from evil to evil, and they know not me, saith the LORD. Take you heed every one of his neighbour, and trust you not in any brother: for every brother will utterly supplant, and every neighbour will walk with slanders.
And they will deceive every one his neighbour, and will not speak the truth: they have taught their tongue to speak lies, and weary themselves to commit iniquity. Thine habitation is in the midst of deceit; through deceit they refuse to know me, saith the LORD.
