REPENTANCE AND REMISSION
Then He said to them,
Thus it is written, and thus it was necessary for the Christ to suffer and to rise from the dead the third day, and that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in His name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. And you are witnesses of these things. Behold, I send the Promise of My Father upon you; but tarry in the city of Jerusalem until you are endued with power from on high.
IT IS WRITTEN
Jesus declares that He must fulfill all that is written in God’s word.
IT IS NECESSARY
It was necessary to bring salvation to all people.
FOR THE WORK OF CHRIST
TO BE COMPLETED
Jesus has to fulfill all the requirements of the law to be our sacrifice for sin.
We no longer carry the burden of sin and shame.
Once you believe in Christ – the curse of sin is broken and removed from you.
You are no longer a sinner.
FOR THE HOLY SPIRIT TO COME IN POWER
However, you must now wait on the Lord for His evidence that the fulness of heaven has been given to you.
The reception of the Holy Spirit changes a saved person – to a called person.
THE MESSAGE OF REPENTANCE AND REMISSION OF SINS MUST BE PREACHED.
The world knows they must repent of their sin – and so they vehemently fight against the carriers of such a message.
Those who believe and repent – receive the remission of their sins.
WITHOUT REPENTANCE – THERE IS NO REMISSION
