“The people that I have found that are the most successful in the Kingdom of God are the ones who understand they have been forgiven.”
— Pastor Danny
• Once you understand the forgiveness of God, you will walk in a different light for the rest of your Christian life.
• Eleven men laid down their lives for the Gospel. They didn’t become martyrs because of something they thought they might believe; they became martyrs because they knew it for a fact.
But there is a great difference between Adam’s sin and God’s gracious gift. For the sin of this one man, Adam, brought death to many. But even greater is God’s wonderful grace and his gift of forgiveness to many through this other man, Jesus Christ.
— Romans 5:15 NLT
• You are no longer a sinner; you are a saint because of that one Man’s gracious gift.
• A person can be born in this world, never commit a sin, and still go to hell unless they receive forgiveness from Jesus.
On that day offerings of purification will be made for you, and you will be purified in the Lord’s presence from all your sins.
— Leviticus 16:30 NLT
• Before the cross, a high priest went into the Holy of Holies once a year to offer sacrifices to atone for sins of the people.
For the life of the body is in its blood. I have given you the blood on the altar to purify you, making you right with the Lord. It is the blood, given in exchange for a life, that makes purification possible.
— Leviticus 17:11 NLT
• Without the shedding of blood, there is no remission for sin. Because of His blood sacrifice we are forgiven. It has nothing to do with anything we did.
For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard.
— Romans 3:23 NLT
• In the New Testament, the blood of Jesus was shed for all who would receive it. We were born with a sin problem; the only solution is a Savior.
• There is not a person who ever took a breath that doesn’t need salvation. There is only one way to obtain salvation, and it is through the blood of Jesus.
• There is something wrong with anything that substitutes the blood of Jesus as your only way to forgiveness. Your good works will mess you up if you look to them for your answer.
• We have to know where our forgiveness comes from and that no one can talk us out of it.
• Today, the enemy of your salvation is preached as “tolerance”. There is nothing in the Bible about tolerance. There is a lot about love. We tell people the truth because we love them.
• You will never give an account for someone else’s salvation. You will give an account for your own.
• Satan tripped Adam & Eve up with doubts and questions. The enemy will try to get us sidetracked from the oneness of Christ.
• We can’t let what happened to somebody else dictate our doctrine or theology.
• We don’t tell people why healing or deliverance did not work for them.
“How hard is it to understand everything that happens to you? Where do we ever get off thinking we can understand what happens to somebody else?
— Pastor Danny
• But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners. — Romans 5:8 NLT
• God loved us while we were still a sinner. Jesus died for us while we were still a sinner. If we have accepted Him and asked Him to be the Lord and Savior of our life, why would we ever doubt if He loves us?
• Doubts that we are not loved and forgiven come from the enemy, not God.
• If we are ever reminded of a past sin, it is the enemy, not God, as long as you are forgiven. The enemy is trying to discourage you and keep you from receiving what God has already done for you.
• Past tense gospel — everything we need has already been done.
• God never leaves us; we simply need to acknowledge His presence in our life.
• The old system under the law of Moses was only a shadow, a dim preview of the good things to come, not the good things themselves. The sacrifices under that system were repeated again and again, year after year, but they were never able to provide perfect cleansing for those who came to worship. — Hebrews 10:1 nlt
• In the Old Testament, the atonement would, in effect, paint over the sins of the people, but the sins would always come back, and the guilt and condemnation would always come back. That is not the way it is with Christ.
