Bible Verses On Forgiveness

This is our part 2 on God Will Forgive All Of Your Sins.

Here are 11 very powerful verses from the Bible that will show her that God will fully forgive all of her sins.

It doesn’t 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)

Conclusion

Feel free to print this article out and give it to her so she can really study the above verses and get a grip on what the Word of God is trying to tell her.

She needs to understand, that as a Christian, she has automatic forgiveness for all of her sins – no matter how bad or how vile she thinks any of these past sins may be.

As long as she has properly confessed and repented of each one of these sins before God, then He will fully forgive her.

All of the above Scripture verses are stating this fact without any other possible interpretation.

Tell her that our Bible is truly the inspired, infallible, and inerrant Word of our God, and that if the Bible says that a thing is so, then it is so – no questions asked!

If you study all of the above verses very carefully, not only is God telling her that she now has His full and complete forgiveness on all of these past sins due to the blood that Jesus has already shed for these sins – but these sins are no longer remembered in His eyes! They have now been completely blotted out for all of eternity.

And if God is no longer wanting to remember any of these sins, then she needs to do likewise.

The only thing left that she may have to deal with may be handling the guilt of some of these past sins.

Like I said on the first part, God Will Forgive All Of Your Sins, tell her to go direct to God the Father in prayer on this issue and ask Him to take away these guilt chains by the power of His Holy Spirit.

I have to believe that God will do this for her if she will just simply approach Him and specifically ask Him for it.

It should be that simple.

Let me know what happens on this. If for some reason none of the above seems to work for her, let me know what the issues or problems are so I can try to send her some additional information in order to help her get a handle on this and defeat it.

    Dear author

    You have written so beautifully to address our friend’s friend’s spiritual disturbance.
    The verses you have picked from the Holy Bible shall give all of us strength so we may firmly believe that our faith in His forgiveness shall save us—

    The end of the world is close. It might even be standing in the next hour or minute. Undoubtedly, those will be the days of horror, panic and indecisiveness as people have never seen or shall see. The Bible says, they will seek death but death will not come to them.

    We and those who know of the Lord, must repent while the time is still good. May our faith in Jesus the Saviour and help from the Holy Spirit make better of us, so we may join the Table with our Father, and Son, in Heaven—

    Shantia, how wonderful that you have responded to the Lord by asking forgiveness! One question: Did you repent of your sins? By this I mean, are you sorry that you have offended God Almighty by your thoughts and actions? Do you want to turn away from those sins? If you did, then God said that He will forgive you. Just believe Him! God is doing all the work. Feelings are dicey, and they don’t tell the truth. The TRUTH is God’s Word. Believe what the Bible tells you, not what your feelings tell you! Hallelujah!!

  3. Crissie - November 22, 2011 at 5:05 pm

    Its about time I find a site like this. Repenting is weight off the shoulders! God forgives us, we just need to believe! And we need to turn from the filthy past and just do what the Lord wants!

  4. edward europa - November 29, 2011 at 1:51 am

  9. Bob S - December 23, 2011 at 6:16 pm

    It has recently been revealed to me that the teaching of continuously confessing our sins has not been totally accurate. Yes we need to confess our sins for, All have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” However once I have been forgiven this is where my change of theology finds its roots. I believe that when I was forgiven I was forgiven of “ALL” my sins. This however does not give me license to go out and do whatever I wish. The apostle Paul address this in Galations, You, my brothers, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the sinful nature; rather, serve one another in love. (Gal. 5:13) It is my stedfast belief that all of my sins have been forgiven past, presnt and future. Therefore to go before the throne of grace and ask forgiveness again for something that no longer exists in the site of God seems an afront to the grace bestowed upon us. I would much rather accept the grace, acknowledgethat I did not live up to God’s standards, thank him that through all of it I am still his child, covered by the blood of the lamb, and sinless as the day that some blood covered me for the first time. Finally thank our heavenly Father for such a grace as was bestowed upon all men that will accept him.

  10. John - December 26, 2011 at 1:21 pm

    Well when you were talking about the “sin of the blasphemy of the Holy Spirit”, here are some verses where is talks about that,

    “31 Therefore I say unto you, Every sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men; but the blasphemy against the Spirit shall not be forgiven. 32 And whosoever shall speak a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him; but whosoever shall speak against the Holy Spirit, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, nor in that which is to come.”

    And where is says “Every sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men” the part (unto men). When someone becomes a Christian they become a son or daughter of God, and if your not a Christian then your not a son or daughter of God, but your a son or daughter of man. And if your a son or daughter of man then your not forgiven, but if your a son or daughter of God then you are forgiven.

    this article really helped me answered my questions esp. the guilty feelings from my past sins… I thank the Lord for your lives who never get tired to share God’s awesome power for the hopeless.. God bless your ministries…

  12. Nicole - January 25, 2012 at 10:03 pm

    I didnt know about the unpardable sin an have curesed to god one or twice but never doubt he was my lord or saver or miracle have not come from him I pray for his forgivness on it an am worried.

  13. Kathy - January 28, 2012 at 1:04 am

    Nicole,

    THE WORD of GOD says this: Matthew 12:31-32

    New Century Version (NCV)

    31 So I tell you, people can be forgiven for every sin and everything they say against God. But whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven.

    32 Anyone who speaks against the Son of Man can be forgiven, but anyone who speaks against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven, now or in the future.

    If you are truly sorry for what you have said and you have asked God to forgive you, then HE HAS FORGIVEN YOU!!! And once GOD has forgiven us, HE doesn’t remember our sins any more!!!

    Hebrews 8:12 NCV) I will forgive them for the wicked things they did, and I will not remember their sins anymore.

    As long as you didn’t actually speak against the Holy Spirit, then you can be forgiven, if you ask!!! You would have to have intentionally spoken against HIM (the Holy Spirit)!!! If you had, you would have known it!!! So, ask God to forgive you for cursing HIM, and HE will, if you truly mean it!!!

    There is no need to worry!!! That is a trick from the enemy!! If he can convince you that you cannot forgiven then he will take you to HELL!! Once you have repented, you tell that ole devil to shut up!!! He is a liar and the truth is NOT in him!!! John 8:44

    It is the devil that constantly tells us that we are no good, NOT God!! Here is what THE WORD says about coming to GOD!!

    2 Corinthians 5:17 New King James Version (NKJV)

    17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.

    So, Nicole, if you ask Jesus, He will save you and forgive you and cleanse you of your sins!!!

    IT IS NOT TOO LATE!!!

    Remember, Jesus died to save ALL of us of our sins!!! John 3:16

  14. Sbu - January 28, 2012 at 11:45 am

    Bob S. I will turn to differ with you a bit. Christ did die for all of us & for all our sins (Believers & Non Believers) either Past, Present & Future sins, but people only receive the forgiveness sins once they come to CHRIST through confession & repentance, of which God give them the forgivenes that has already been done long time ago, but when we sin again & or again those sins are not forgiven until we ask for forgiveness that’s why his word says “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) I strongly believe that this verse was talking to believers. So let us not think one confession cleansed even our future sins, we have to live by confessing & repenting from all kind of evil ways (Thoughts & actions). May God richly bless you all *It’s a powerful Topic indeed. 🙂

  15. Dalia Kemp - January 31, 2012 at 2:58 pm

    I have sinned against God and I really don’t know how to ask for forgiveness. Will you help me? I also need gir my children to forgive me.

  16. Randy - February 7, 2012 at 3:32 pm

    Amen

  17. Hey - February 9, 2012 at 6:14 am

    Cooll thanks for the ANSWERS for my homework haha 🙂

  18. Jay - February 22, 2012 at 9:28 am

    To repent only means to change your mind. It is accepting a higher truth (God’s reality) in place of a subjective truth (the reality the enemy whispers in your ear). Repentance has nothing to do with feeling bad or guilty and promising to change your ways. This goes against the definition of the word repentance, and its meaning in the greek. (It is not a greek word but was invented in 1545 by the Roman Catholics). In fact, there is not a single verse in the new covenant, or new testament that tells you to ask for forgiveness for your sins…because they have already been forgiven. Now it is up to us to either accept that forgiveness or focus on the lies of the enemy. To repent simply means to change your thinking…which we all do daily. Anytime you hear something you recognize as truth that you didn’t before means you just repented. This can happen in math class or bible study. Repentance is not a precursor for forgiveness. It is simply having faith in the forgiveness already available. Rest in the finished works of the cross. You are free from guilt forever and found clean by the blood of the lamb!

  19. Mike - March 5, 2012 at 4:55 pm

    I have another question about this. Let me give a little history first.
    I sinned against someone many years ago. I have apologized to them for my actions and have since acknowledged that what I did was wrong and corrected my way of thinking about those actions, (long ago). Now, I am not a big church attendant but I do know God is out there and I am really wanting to increase my beliefs through the Bible and possibly, (probably), prayer.
    The person I sinned against has recently communicated to me that they have forgiven me for what I had done. Here is where it gets odd for me though. They also have communicated to me that I should tell my significant other about the actions. The actions took place 20+ years ago, way before I met my significant other.
    So, my question is, doesn’t forgiveness come without strings? I mean, this person has a strong belief in God and attends church and groups about their faith. They have also encouraged, (pushed), for me to attend their church and groups to seek out God and forgiveness from Him. Furthermore, they have also stated that they feel if I do not mention these past actions to my significant other that they would do so. Is this not blackmail? How is this forgiveness?
    Is it possible this person wishes to harm me with this? For the record, I did not get away with murder.
    If I have changed my way of thinking about those actions, (repented), (but still feel bad about them from time to time), have I not done enough in the eyes of the Lord? I know the verses aforementioned say my slate should be clean and my sins forgotten in the eyes of the Lord but I do still have some guilty feelings from time to time about them.
    What do I do?

  20. Theo - March 18, 2012 at 10:50 pm

    My friend, we have all committed sins, sin is a sin. There is no better sin. If even after repenting, confessing n asking God for forgiveness you still feel guilty, I doubt if really you ve repented or you re just wishing to do so. If for sure, you ve, please stay sway from rewriting the bible. The bible is the word of God. If the bible tells you that your sins can be forgive. Is the bible lying?

  21. Mo - March 19, 2012 at 5:40 am

    Hi There…
    This websire has come to my aid in time of need….I have a done a few things I am not proud of and need to find acceptance with the fact that it is all in the past…I have hurt some people along the way, but have asked for forgiveness from each person I have hurt, but still feel I need to do more. I have asked God to be with me in my heart and in my home and walk with me every day to guide me along the path he wants me to travel..yet I still feel alone…
    I need to talk to someone who is not judgemental and can help me with my faith issues…I have accepted the lord into my life but really feel I need to do more…

  22. Brian - March 20, 2012 at 2:20 am

  23. Mo - March 27, 2012 at 1:33 am

    I am having a hard time putting my life in order. I dont want to be a sinner anymore! There are people in my life who are a continuous reminder of my past sins and wish I could break away from them…but I also want to help them see the right way. I have accepted the Lord into my life and want him to work through me. How do I get my mind away from the bad habits?

  24. Agatha - March 28, 2012 at 1:00 am

    I am a sinner. I was born a sinner. I know my wrongs and I’m dreadful against them all. I have done some bad things in my lifetime. I pray to the Lord to forgive me for all that I have done to disappoint him. I am sorry! Please forgive me my Lord. I know your Son Jesus died on the crossed for my Sins. Please forgive me. Please walk into my life. I want you there. I have faith that I will be forgiving of my sins, I just still beat my self up because I regret what I have done. I pray that the Father Almighty takes this quilt away from me. Please wash away all my sins and quilt.

    Sincerely,
    Me!

  28. Sarah - April 2, 2013 at 11:14 am

    Do you think that in order to have true forgiveness for our sins that we must ask the person that we sinned against for forgivness as well?

  29. Chris - April 2, 2013 at 7:09 pm

    Hi Sarah, I know you could get a few different replies on that but I believe you should seek the Lord on this and most of the time, it will be a timing issue on when he wants you do that. I would say in most cases, you do want to go to the person you have wronged and ask for forgiveness. Remember, forgiveness is more for you and not the other person.

  30. Sweeney irony - April 14, 2013 at 6:51 am

    In case where the offended does not forgive you , scripture indicates that you will not be. Forgiven

  31. raymond white - April 25, 2013 at 11:57 am

    Princess, Once you ask God to forgive you and you mean it with all of your heart, He forgives you on the spot. It doesn’t take 3 days of fasting to receive that forgiveness. It doesn’t block that Glory from your life. Besides, what makes you think that the glory is not there. It just hasn’t become real in a sense of your seeing it. It doesn’t mean that it is not there. Hang in there and change the purpose of your fast from begging for forgiveness to filling you with the love of Christ Princess. More Love, more love, more love, and sensitivity to the love and forgiveness towards others in your life. God bless you. I have a feeling that you will see the Glory of Jesus in the not too distant future.

  32. Zina Bennett - March 23, 2014 at 9:39 pm

    The forgiveness part is where I’m stuck again. I keep wondering how can God forgive me for letting somebody violate my son when now it’s hard for me to forgive myself. I didn’t feel like this until I kept being told that’s w h at I was feeling a n d it was m y fault. I used to think I wasn’t good enough for God. I don’t think I”ve lost my faith I believe it’s just shaken up a little. My faith in man is shaken and also in the clergy.

    Matthew 6:9-13King James Version (KJV)

    9 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

    10 Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

    11 Give us this day our daily bread.

    12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

    13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.
