Have You Now Confessed All Your Sins Before The Coming Rapture?
Should I Go Ahead And SMS All My Friends To Confess Now Before The Wrath Of God Is Poured Out?
i have, we should live everyday with the reality that we could meet Jesus at any moment. While the world may not end on Saturday, there will be some people(ready or not) who will leave this world and meet their reward. Be ready at all times!
i'm all confessed up, but since i have a little more time, i'm going to use it to sin somemore.
As Ambassador Butler I am now offering up a prayer for all human beings to GOD who is known as I am Alpha and Omega. " Father we bring all of our known sins of commission and sins of omission before you. We ask of your forgiveness through the blood of Jesus Christ for the atonement of our sins. We ask of you to help us overcome our sins in our lives and may we become more like the image of Christ that shown humanity what you are like by the kind of life that Jesus Christ lived on the earth. Let us all be ready every moment of our life because we do not know when we will take our last breath and die and crossover to the other side of death. Amen. " Now let us all go forward and sin no more and strive for this in our individual life with Jesus Christ being an example of how to live life on the earth doing the will of the Father.
Confessed my sins... hmmm...
I find this a most interesting concept; I do harm to someone, I apologise to god and I get forgiven... what about the victim, doesn't he/she have any say in this?
The concept of confession to god is the greatest abdication of responsibility ever conceived, it encourages a lack of accountability and derogation of social and moral duty.
If you harm someone, confess to the victim, seek his/her forgiveness, take responsibility for your actions.
God does not forgive, only the victims of your actions have the right to forgive.
I wonder how many would run to confession if the confessional contained the victim... not too many, I'll bet.
Christ said no one knows the day nor the hour.I am surprise to see that a lot of people believe otherwise in the Church.It is people of this false prophecy that give bad marks to the Christian faith.It just goes to show how many have misinterpreted the word of God to fit their own agenda....and draw mass people to omit the bible to take heed to pagan prophecy.
It also show how little God and the bible is connected in their life. Those that believe that Christ is God by the same misinterpretation of scripture will come to the same conclusion that they were not inspired by God to have such thoughts.
It is not a matter of confessing all of your sins rather it is a matter of repenting,making sure you have asked Jesus for His forgiveness and accepting Him as Your saviour.
No one should have the right to go to Hell! Hell is a place of pain with everybody should help people not go there, no one deserves to live in pain.
You should ask for forgiveness from God and if there are relationships that would benefit from the repenting then do it but sometimes it is best to not to tell the other party. Oh and you should do it before the Rapture, but it wasn't on Saturday check out my hubs on some of this stuff.
No. I agree with hottopics, I definitely wouldn't have enough time to confess all of my sins. They aren't huge sins, but Ive not been an angel.
The bible says no man knows the day and the hour. That means NO man knows the day and the hour. As pauld43 said, we should all be ready, every day.
I guess I have and haven't depending on what you mean by confessing. I talk to God and Jesus about my sins but beyond that I tend to keep most to myself since they are the ones who will judge me in the end. To openly yell to the world some of my sins would only cause chaos and I don't think that is in the spirit of what confession is about.
I agree with dave matthews. Your sins are known, it's whether or not you repent that counts. I also agree with Sam3m, seems like I'm always repenting for something....lol
By your question, you're implying that the Rapture is imminent. Even though a key scripture as stated is "No man knows the day or the hour". Although, Jesus did state that we will know the "season". I think it's best like another hubber said, to repent while we have the chance. Not because the rapture may be at hand, but because you never know when you may draw your last breath. IT won't be a confession of sins that'll save me, but the grace of God himself.
Didn't Jesus specifically state that he would return within the lifetime of some of the people with whom he was directly speaking? That would put the Rapture about 2,000 years overdue. I'm not a murderer or a rapist. If that's not good enough to get into the imaginary happy place in the sky, then I don't want to go. Maybe I'll just play ignorant since I honestly don't even know what all qualifies as a "sin." You should give Atheism a try for a bit and see how it fits. It's pretty liberating and you don't have to worry about nonsensical superstitions. You can just work on being a good person and making sure that you do right by your friends and family.
There's an old story that goes like this:
A man prayed daily for a new car, and after years of not recieving one, he realised God didn't work that way, so instead he went out, stole a car, and then prayed for forgiveness.
While I understand no one is perfect, it is probably best to try not doing any wrong in the first place, and when you do, promptly deal with it.
Why wait until the rapture to ask for forgiveness? If you're only seeking forgiveness because you fear God's wrath, than you probably don't deserve it, because you're not truly sorry for what you've done. If you're truly sorry, you'll promptly admit it and try and change your ways.
I am making more of an effort to immediately ask God to forgive me as soon as I sin such as being in my kitchen it seems I forever have accidents and sometimes I say a bad word and so I stop and tell God I don't want to do that and ask He help me not to and it seems that awareness does help.
"the coming rapture"..........is not my God............is not where my boundaries are drawn, is not a judgement.............it is not a single circumstance in the history of mankind........* if it is at all,
NO.............I do not "confess" before a rapture..........
I live, address, and answer to a living God.
"IT"............whatever, "IT" is,...is between me and God..........not you and me and God.................
Please, if you get nothing else............get this.............
It is before Me and
God,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,not you, me and God................YOU are NOT involved.
I would say to maybe focus on being a good person and not sin to begin with so you don't have so much confessing to do. What is this anyway? It's ok to sin as long as you ask forgiveness? Just don't sin!
I just want to point out the fact that the word rapture is not in the bible, if spending eternity with Christ were dependent on confessing all your sins, nobody would be able to stand judgement.
How many sins do we commit without even thinking about it? Christ died for every sin ever committed and following Him means accepting that and letting Him lead your life. I myself am in no way the picture perfect example of how Christians are supposed to live.
It's important to know that this life on earth is temporary, not many people will argue against that. It's a passion of mine to help others live healthy lives, but even if someone could live to be 1000 years old, that time wouldn't even put a dot on eternity.
Ultimately in the end it doesn't matter how long you live, how much money you make, or how many "great" things you accomplish, believing in your heart and confessing with your mouth matters is what will matter and a life lived for Christ reflects Christ.
it's not a matter of confessing your sins before the coming rapture. It is a MATTER if you have RECEIVE Jesus Christ as your PERSONAL SAVIOR in your heart before rapture will happen.
It is a sin to tell people they are going to hell because they did not become a christian. People who have done this will need to confess to other people in other religions and those with no religion that they are guilty of this terrible sin.
How could a man be so bold as to answer yes to such a question. Confess em all. I can't remember them all since I got on this site an hour ago. But you know what, Jesus died for em all, and that's good enough for His Daddy!!
Jesus was all accepting. I find it funny that a lot of "christians" put qualifiers on religious practices...if you do not accept him ....you will go to hell ... and such.
To sin is to be human....what is important is that you learn from your mistakes, and always strive to be a better person. Apologize to people you need to as soon as possible. Help people in need. Ask yourself how you can be of service....to yourself, the earth, and others.
We are all the same no man or woman is any better or worse that any other. Good and evil lies in all of our hearts. Good and evil are two fighting dogs.....the one you feed the most wins!!!
All people have the potential to do good or bad things......even the most heinous criminal can change and become a good person.
Spread love and acceptance....not guilt, shame, and fear
If I'm taken, I'll enjoy the joys of paradise. If not, then I'll comfort myself with the earth beneath my feet.
Though in true, I don't believe in the Rapture for it is not within my own personal belief structure and that is what truly matters is what you believe.
My favorite quotes about this subject come from Dante's Inferno (The Video Game, not the Book).
Dante: "Why don't I see any of the heathens(Muslims, this was set during the Crusades) wasting away in this Inferno?"
Lucifer *laughs*: "This is not their Hell. It's yours."

How often does a Catholic need to go to confession?It is very easy to commit sin as we go about our daily lives. In receiving Christ through the Holy Communion, a Catholic needs to be void of sin. If followed to the letter, this means that an ordinary Catholic needs to visit the Confession box...

Must the sinner wait till he has repented before he can come to Jesus?Is Repentance to be made an obstacle between the sinner and The Saviour?"Come unto Me, all ye that labor and are heavyladen, and I will give you rest." Matthew 11:28

What do you make of John 20:19-23?Most particularly I was working on a sermon on this and this line hit me in a new light, like a ton of bricks: 23 If you forgive anyone’s sins, their sins are forgiven; if you do not forgive them, they are not forgiven.”My thoughts are that man can...
