Thoughts and Truth from the Impossible Life

She asked if God will forgive her sins

Here are 11 very powerful verses from the Bible that will show her that God will fully forgive all of her sins – no matter how bad she thinks any of them may be – if she will only believe it and accept it with a little faith.

1.  This first verse will tell her that she can now boldly approach the throne of God for His mercy and grace – and that will include being able to approach Him to get full and complete forgiveness for any of her sins!

“Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.” (Hebrews 4:16)

2.  This next verse will show her that God does not want her carrying around any excess baggage that will weigh her down. He wants all of her burdens to be light. These feelings of guilt are like heavy chains and anchors around her soul.

“Come to me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” (Matthew 11:28)

3.  This next verse will tell her to literally cast all of her burdens onto Jesus – which would include handling all of the guilt associated with any of her past sins.

“Cast your burden on the Lord, and He shall sustain you; He shall never permit the righteous to be moved.” (Psalm 55:22)

4.  This next verse tells her that she now has an advocate in Jesus for any of her sins before God the Father.

“My little children, these things I write to you, that you may not sin. And if anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous.” (1 John 2:1)

5.  This next verse is a major, fundamental, power verse! This verse will tell her that if she will just confess her sins before God the Father, that He will then fully forgive her and cleanse her from all of the unrighteousness of her past sins.

“If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” (1 John 1:9)

She needs to really grab a hold of the revelation that is in this verse. Tell her the Bible is truly the inspired and infallible Word of our Holy God and that she can literally bank her entire life on it!

6. This next verse will tell her that if she has truly repented from these past sins, then these sins have now been fully blotted out before God and that He no longer remembers any of these past sins!

“Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord.” (Acts 3:19)

7.  This next verse will reaffirm the above verse stating that God will now blot out all her transgressions and will no longer remember any of her sins! And if God is no longer wanting to remember any of her past sins, then she needs to do likewise.

“I, even I, am He who blots out your transgressions for My own sake; and I will not remember your sins. Put Me in remembrance; let us contend together; state your case, that you may be acquitted.” (Isaiah 43:25-26)

This verse also tells her that if she will simply approach God the Father in prayer, state her case before Him, and repent of each of her sins – then God will fully acquit her, fully forgive her, and her sins will no longer be remembered in His eyes!

8.  This next one is another major power verse. This verse will tell us that there is now “no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus.”

What this verse means is that if you have truly confessed your sins before God the Father, and have truly repented of each one of these sins, then God has fully forgiven you. And if God has now fully forgiven you, then you no longer have any more condemnation before God. You are now fully forgiven and you are now free to let all of your past sins go – including all of the guilt associated with those past sins. This specific verse should be committed to memory due to the extreme importance of it.

“There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus …” (Romans 8:1)

9.  This next verse will tell us that all of our sins will become as “white as snow.” In other words, our slates nave now been made completely clean. Our sheets are as white as snow. All of the stain from those past sins have now been completely washed away by the blood of Jesus. Here is the verse:

“Come now and let us reason together,” says the Lord,
“Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow.”  (Isaiah 1:18)

10.  Here is another good verse that will tell her that all of the old things of her past, which will include all of her past sins, have now fully passed away before the eyes of God because she has now become a new creation in Christ.

“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away, behold, all things have become new.” (2 Corinthians 5:17)

11.  Here is another very powerful verse showing her that we now have full forgiveness of all of our sins through the blood that Jesus has already shed for all of us on the cross.

“In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace.” (Ephesians 1:7)

God Said It

Of course I believe God who does not err and does not change and who is ALL powerful that He has kept His Holy Word pure and righteous in the Holy Bible for thousands of years and who loved us so much that He chose to manifest Himself in the flesh as Jesus, the Son of God, to atone for the sins of all who accept Him. I pray you too will accept God and His Son Jesus so that you too may be granted eternal life and salvation, for there is no other way, no other path to life eternal in paradise except through Jesus Christ OUR Lord and OUR GOD.

Impart of your substance to the poor

The Book of Mosiah
Chapter 4

1 And now, it came to pass that when king Benjamin had made an end of speaking the words which had been delivered unto him by the angel of the Lord, that he cast his eyes round about on the multitude, and behold they had fallen to the earth, for the fear of the Lord had come upon them.

2 And they had viewed themselves in their own carnal state, even less than the dust of the earth. And they all cried aloud with one voice, saying: O have mercy, and apply the atoning blood of Christ that we may receive forgiveness of our sins, and our hearts may be purified; for we believe in Jesus Christ, the Son of God, who created heaven and earth, and all things; who shall come down among the children of men.

3 And it came to pass that after they had spoken these words the Spirit of the Lord came upon them, and they were filled with joy, having received a remission of their sins, and having peace of conscience, because of the exceeding faith which they had in Jesus Christ who should come, according to the words which king Benjamin had spoken unto them.

4 And king Benjamin again opened his mouth and began to speak unto them, saying: My friends and my brethren, my kindred and my people, I would again call your attention, that ye may hear and understand the remainder of my words which I shall speak unto you.

5 For behold, if the knowledge of the goodness of God at this time has awakened you to a sense of your anothingness, and your worthless and fallen state—

6 I say unto you, if ye have come to a knowledge of the goodness of God, and his matchless power, and his wisdom, and his patience, and his long-suffering towards the children of men; and also, the atonement which has been prepared from the foundation of the world, that thereby salvation might come to him that should put his trust in the Lord, and should be diligent in keeping his commandments, and continue in the faith even unto the end of his life, I mean the life of the mortal body—

7 I say, that this is the man who receiveth salvation, through the atonement which was prepared from the foundation of the world for all mankind, which ever were since the fall of Adam, or who are, or who ever shall be, even unto the end of the world.

8 And this is the means whereby salvation cometh. And there is none other salvation save this which hath been spoken of; neither are there any conditions whereby man can be saved except the conditions which I have told you.

9 Believe in God; believe that he is, and that he created all things, both in heaven and in earth; believe that he has all wisdom, and all power, both in heaven and in earth; believe that man doth not comprehend all the things which the Lord can comprehend.

10 And again, believe that ye must repent of your sins and forsake them, and humble yourselves before God; and ask in sincerity of heart that he would forgive you; and now, if you believe all these things see that ye do them.

11 And again I say unto you as I have said before, that as ye have come to the knowledge of the glory of God, or if ye have known of his goodness and have tasted of his love, and have received a remission of your sins, which causeth such exceedingly great joy in your souls, even so I would that ye should remember, and always retain in remembrance, the greatness of God, and your own nothingness, and his goodness and long-suffering towards you, unworthy creatures, and humble yourselves even in the depths of humility, calling on the name of the Lord daily, and standing steadfastly in the faith of that which is to come, which was spoken by the mouth of the angel.

12 And behold, I say unto you that if ye do this ye shall always rejoice, and be filled with the love of God, and always retain a remission of your sins; and ye shall grow in the knowledge of the glory of him that created you, or in the knowledge of that which is just and true.

13 And ye will not have a mind to injure one another, but to live peaceably, and to render to every man according to that which is his due.

14 And ye will not suffer your children that they go hungry, or naked; neither will ye suffer that they transgress the laws of God, and fight and quarrel one with another, and serve the devil, who is the master of sin, or who is the devil spirit which hath been spoken of by our fathers, he being an enemy to all righteousness.

15 But ye will teach them to walk in the ways of truth and soberness; ye will teach them to love one another, and to serve one another.

16 And also, ye yourselves will succor those that stand in need of your succor; ye will administer of your substance unto him that standeth in need; and ye will not suffer that the beggar putteth up his petition to you in vain, and turn him out to perish.

17 Perhaps thou shalt say: The man has brought upon himself his misery; therefore I will stay my hand, and will not give unto him of my food, nor impart unto him of my substance that he may not suffer, for his punishments are just—

18 But I say unto you, O man, whosoever doeth this the same hath great cause to repent; and except he repenteth of that which he hath done he perisheth forever, and hath no interest in the kingdom of God.

19 For behold, are we not all beggars? Do we not all depend upon the same Being, even God, for all the substance which we have, for both food and raiment, and for gold, and for silver, and for all the riches which we have of every kind?

20 And behold, even at this time, ye have been calling on his name, and begging for a remission of your sins. And has he suffered that ye have begged in vain? Nay; he has poured out his Spirit upon you, and has caused that your hearts should be filled with joy, and has caused that your mouths should be stopped that ye could not find utterance, so exceedingly great was your joy.

21 And now, if God, who has created you, on whom you are dependent for your lives and for all that ye have and are, doth grant unto you whatsoever ye ask that is right, in faith, believing that ye shall receive, O then, how ye ought to impart of the substance that ye have one to another.

22 And if ye judge the man who putteth up his petition to you for your substance that he perish not, and condemn him, how much more just will be your condemnation for withholding your substance, which doth not belong to you but to God, to whom also your life belongeth; and yet ye put up no petition, nor repent of the thing which thou hast done.

23 I say unto you, woe be unto that man, for his substance shall perish with him; and now, I say these things unto those who are rich as pertaining to the things of this world.

24 And again, I say unto the poor, ye who have not and yet have sufficient, that ye remain from day to day; I mean all you who deny the beggar, because ye have not; I would that ye say in your hearts that: I give not because I have not, but if I had I would give.

25 And now, if ye say this in your hearts ye remain guiltless, otherwise ye are condemned; and your condemnation is just for ye covet that which ye have not received.

26 And now, for the sake of these things which I have spoken unto you—that is, for the sake of retaining a remission of your sins from day to day, that ye may walk guiltless before God—I would that ye should impart of your substance to the poor, every man according to that which he hath, such as feeding the hungry, clothing the naked, visiting the sick and administering to their relief, both spiritually and temporally, according to their wants.

27 And see that all these things are done in wisdom and order; for it is not requisite that a man should run faster than he has strength. And again, it is expedient that he should be diligent, that thereby he might win the prize; therefore, all things must be done in order.

28 And I would that ye should remember, that whosoever among you borroweth of his neighbor should return the thing that he borroweth, according as he doth agree, or else thou shalt commit sin; and perhaps thou shalt cause thy neighbor to commit sin also.

29 And finally, I cannot tell you all the things whereby ye may commit sin; for there are divers ways and means, even so many that I cannot number them.

30 But this much I can tell you, that if ye do not watch yourselves, and your thoughts, and your words, and your deeds, and observe the commandments of God, and continue in the faith of what ye have heard concerning the coming of our Lord, even unto the end of your lives, ye must perish. And now, O man, remember, and perish not.

Families Can Be Eternal

Gospel Principles
Unit 8: Family Salvation
Chapter 36: The Family Can Be Eternal
Comments and Resources

“Our associations (family) are not exclusively intended for this
life… We live for time and eternity… who are there besides the
Latter-day Saints who contemplate the thought that beyond the grave
we will continue in the family organization?” (Joseph F. Smith,
Gospel Doctrine, p. 277.)

“Among the saints the family is the basic unit of the Church and of
society, and its needs and preservation in righteousness take
precedence over all other things. True family organization is
patriarchal in nature; it is patterned after that organization which
exist in heaven.”
(Ephesians 3:14-15)….

“Eternal families have their beginning in celestial marriage here in
mortality…By obedience to the laws of the gospel, Latter-day Saints
families begin here and now to enjoy much of that peace, joy, love,
and charity which will be enjoyed in eternal fullness in the exalted
family unit” (Bruce R. McConkie, Mormon Doctrine, p. 273).

During the study of this topic we will learn that the family can be eternal.

Scriptures:

3 Nephi 17:1-3
“1 Behold, now it came to pass that when Jesus had spoken these
words he looked round about again on the multitude, and he said unto
them: Behold, my time is at hand.
2 I perceive that ye are
weak, that ye cannot
understand all my words
which I am commanded of the Father to speak unto you at this time.
3 Therefore, go ye unto your homes, and
ponder upon the things which
I have said, and ask of the Father, in my name, that ye may
understand, and prepare your
minds for the morrow, and I
come unto you again.”

D&C 68:25-28;
131:1-4;
D&C 132
D&C 68:25-28
“25 And again, inasmuch as
parents have children in
Zion, or in any of her stakes
which are organized, that
teach them not to understand
the doctrine of repentance,
faith in Christ the Son of the living God, and of baptism and the
gift of the Holy Ghost by the laying on of the hands, when
eight years old, the
sin be upon the heads of the parents.
26 For this shall be a law unto the
inhabitants of Zion, or in
any of her stakes which are organized.
27 And their children shall be
baptized for the
remission of their sins when
eight years old, and receive
the laying on of the hands.
28 And they shall also
teach their children to pray,
and to walk uprightly before the Lord.”

D&C 131:1-4
“1 In the celestial glory
there are three heavens or degrees;
2 And in order to obtain the
highest, a man must enter
into this order of the
priesthood [meaning the new
and everlasting covenant of
marriage];
3 And if he does not, he cannot obtain it.
4 He may enter into the other, but that is the end of his kingdom;
he cannot have an increase.”

D&C 132
“Revelation given through Joseph Smith the Prophet, at Nauvoo,
Illinois, recorded July 12, 1843, relating to the new and everlasting
covenant, including the eternity of the marriage covenant, as also
plurality of wives. HC 5: 501 507. Although the revelation was
recorded in 1843, it is evident from the historical records that the
doctrines and principles involved in this revelation had been known
by the Prophet since 1831.

through the new and everlasting covenant;
7-14, The terms and
conditions of that covenant are set forth;

Official Declaration -1

Psalms 127:3-5
“3 Lo, children are an
heritage of the Lord: and the
fruit of the womb is his reward.
4 As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth.
5 Happy is the man that
hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they
shall speak with the enemies in the gate.”

Mark 10:2-16
“2 And the Pharisees came to him, and asked him, Is it lawful for
a man to put away his wife? tempting him.
3 And he answered and said unto them, What did Moses command you?
4 And they said, Moses suffered to write a bill of divorcement,
and to put her away.
5 And Jesus answered and said unto them, For the hardness of your
heart he wrote you this precept.
6 But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female.
7 For this cause shall a
man leave his father and
mother, and cleave to his wife;
8 And they twain shall be one flesh: so then they are no more
twain, but one flesh.
9 What therefore God hath
joined together, let not man
put asunder.
10 And in the house his disciples asked him again of the same matter.
11 And he saith unto them, Whosoever shall put away his wife, and
marry another, committeth adultery against her.
12 And if a woman shall put away her husband, and be married to
another, she committeth adultery.
13 And they brought young children to him, that he should touch
them: and his disciples rebuked those that brought them.
14 But when Jesus saw it, he was much displeased, and said unto
them, Suffer the little
children to come unto me,
and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God.
15 Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom
of God as a little child,
he shall not enter therein.
16 And he took them up in his arms, put his hands upon them, and
blessed them.”

Ephesians 5:21-33;
6:1-9
Ephesians 5:21-33
“21 Submitting yourselves
one to another in the fear of God.
22 Wives,
submit yourselves unto your
own husbands, as unto the Lord.
23 For the husband is the
head of the wife, even as Christ is the
head of the
church: and he is the saviour
of the body.
24 Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the
wives be to their own husbands in every thing.
25 Husbands,
love your
wives, even as Christ also
loved the church, and gave himself for it;
26 That he might sanctify
and cleanse it with the
washing of water by the word,
27 That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not
having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be
holy and without blemish.
28 So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that
loveth his wife loveth himself.
29 For no man ever yet
hated his own
flesh; but nourisheth and
cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church:
30 For we are members of
his body, of his flesh, and of his bones.
31 For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and
shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be
one flesh.
32 This is a great
mystery: but I speak
concerning Christ and the church.
33 Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his
wife even as himself; and the
wife see that she
reverence her husband.”

Ephesians 6:1-9
“1 Children,
obey your parents in the Lord:
for this is right.
2 Honour thy father and
mother; (which is the first commandment with promise;)
3 That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth.
4 And, ye fathers,
provoke not your
children to wrath: but bring
them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.
5 Servants, be obedient to
them that are your masters
according to the flesh, with fear and trembling, in singleness of
your heart, as unto Christ;
6 Not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but as the
servants of Christ, doing the
will of God from the heart;
7 With good will doing
service, as to the Lord, and
not to men:
8 Knowing that whatsoever good thing any man doeth, the same shall
he receive of the Lord,
whether he be bond or free.
9 And, ye masters, do the
same things unto them, forbearing threatening: knowing that your
Master also is in heaven;
neither is there respect of
persons with him.”

Abraham 5:14-18
“14 And the Gods said: Let us make an help meet for the man, for
it is not good that the man should be alone, therefore we will form
an help meet for him.
15 And the Gods caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam; and he
slept, and they took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh in the
stead thereof;
16 And of the rib which the Gods had taken from man, formed they a
woman, and brought her unto the man.
17 And Adam said: This was bone of my bones, and
flesh of my flesh; now she
shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of man;
18 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and
shall cleave unto his wife,
and they shall be one flesh.”
