Can a person who has many and serious sins be forgiven?


Can a person still be saved who has known the Word of God, read the Bible, but has not returned to Him through repentance and baptism, who has wasted almost 23 years of life, committing the most terrible sins, so serious that I cannot even mention them? Is there still salvation for a person who has sinned greatly if he turns wholeheartedly to God?

Yes, there is forgiveness for you and for anyone who is in your situation, for anyone who has rejected the gospel and the grace of the Lord Jesus, if you turn wholeheartedly to God. I invite you to listen to more explanations in this video:

So it was with the robber on the cross

Among the first people to receive salvation was one of the two robbers crucified with the Lord Jesus. One of the robbers mocked the Lord Jesus, but the other turned to the Lord Jesus, asked for forgiveness, and received forgiveness there on the cross. He admitted that he was rightly punished, crucified. So he was a thief who did a lot of evil. However, this man received forgiveness and the Lord Jesus assured him that he would be with Him that very day in heaven. If that was the case with the robber, so be it with you.

So it was with Ahab

Ahab was a very bad king in Israel, he did a lot of evil and just after he committed a murder, a great iniquity, he was confronted by Elijah. To Elijah’s great astonishment, Ahab repented:

When Ahab heard these words, he tore his clothes, put on sackcloth and fasted. He lay in sackcloth and went around meekly. Then the word of the Lord came to Elijah the Tishbite: “Have you noticed how Ahab has humbled himself before me? Because he has humbled himself, I will not bring this disaster in his day, but I will bring it on his house in the days of his son.” (1 Kings 21:27-29)

God was amazed at Ahab’s repentance. It was as if God did not expect Ahab’s repentance either. If God received the repentance of Ahab, the thief on the cross, God will also receive your repentance. Just hurry up and repent today. Do not delay your repentance. If today the thought came to you to repent, know that this thought is a conviction from God.

Do not be hardened on the day of your conviction

Only two cases are recorded in the Bible when the Lord Jesus wept. In the second case he wept for the inhabitants of Jerusalem, because they did not know the day of their visitation. Every man has certain moments and days of God’s conviction and calling for this man to repent. If this thought came to you, it means that it is God’s visitation. You can’t know if you will have such a moment of conviction after today. So don’t procrastinate! Hurry to repent. All thoughts of procrastination come from Satan, who deceives you because he wants to gain time to harden you. Once he hardens you, there will be no more repentance in your life. You will die in your sins and go to eternal perdition.

God is ready to forgive ANY iniquity

In John 1: 8-9 it is written:

He himself was not the light; he came only as a witness to the light. The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world.

In our imagination we believe that some people have exceeded any limit and there is no forgiveness for them, but God is ready to forgive any iniquity if the person repents wholeheartedly. If you come to Him with all your heart, ask for forgiveness of sins, receive the sacrifice of the Lord Jesus Christ, and enter into a covenant with Him, receive full forgiveness. Right now I urge you to do this. Repent and decide to be baptized according to the command of Jesus Christ. 

Then look for a church in your locality where the Word of God is preached and lived. Go to church and follow the teachings of the Lord Jesus Christ wholeheartedly. I invite you to study the Bible with us at the end of September on the weekends of September 23-25. We will have a spiritual growth seminar where we will study the 2nd Peter course and learn how to strengthen our calling and running so that we never slip. For registration and more information you can contact Pastor Andrei Talmazan at 069043143 or on Facebook.

If you were wrong in front of people

Think about the people before whom you were wrong. You have to confess to them too, you have to apologize to them. But think before you go to them, what effect this will have on them. For example, if this involves fornication, do you go and tell your husband? Many times such a confession has brought such a great burden on the other, they become bitter, oppressed. That’s why, think hard and what effect it will have on these people. First of all, confess to God, go and tell the pastor and he will advise you what to do. Only break definitively with all your sins and follow all the teachings of the Lord Jesus.
