“Repent, for the kingdom of God is at hand”.was one famous message of “John, the Baptist”. to the people of Israel before the coming of Jesus Christ. Same message , you can read and see on some blogs of who claimed Jesus Christ had shown to them.
Why the word repent? Jesus said that no unholy can enter the kingdom of God, for God is Holy. God is sinless and unholiness means sinful. God said that man alone cannot do it, but with God’s grace through Jesus Christ we can become holy.
We are not without sin. We commit sin every now and then, even the good pastors or man with good heart, still sin. A true Christians is very keen about sins. So, when we do, we have to qrepent and confess with full heart and faith to God every single sin, through Jesus Christ. Through the blood of Jesus who is always waiting for you has always an open arms to forgive sins of which we truly are repentant of.
ROMANS 19:9-10 -Because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved.
