It becomes imperative to let people of the world to know the truth. This is because people have different perceptions about sins and forgiveness.
I want to emphatically inform people that there is no forgiveness of sin, a person’s goodness must outweigh the evil done by the person before his or her sin could be forgiven. Brethren, it was revealed to me spiritually that forgiveness of sin is based on the scaling of the goodness and the evil done by the person. The Bible says in Matthew 7 verse1 – 2 “….For with what judgment you judge, you will be judged and with the measure you use, it will be judged back to you”.
Therefore people should endeavour to abstain from sin and do more of goodness. It is a common teaching in churches that when a person confesses his or her sin, forsakes them and accepts Jesus Christ as his or her Lord and Saviour then all is finished.
This believe was drawn from the statement Jesus made in John 19 verse 30 “….. It is finished…..”. Jesus Christ does not guarantee a murderer, a fraudster (419), evil doer that knows he or she is perpetrating evil, his or her sin would not be forgiven and will not make heaven. Even Jesus Christ’s teaching is concerned with doing good and loving your neighbours as yourselves (Matt.22 verse 39).
Some pastors always teach their followers that being a born-again makes a person to get favourable judgment. A born-again Christian truly baptised does not make him or her a complete born-again until the person makes appeasement. What is the appeasement?
The appeasement is for the person to be continually doing good for the rest of his or her life. Similarly, some people claimed to be born-again, prior to their declaration, they had robbed and murdered people that were breadwinners of families and took away their possession. Then the dependants of these breadwinners were left to suffer for life.
In the same vein a fraudster that defrauded people of their fortunes before his or her declaration of acceptance of Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour had brought the people and their dependants to penury. After several years of their evil deed, they now come out in the church and declare their desire to be born-again. No, such people cannot be born-again in the eye of God and their sins are waiting for them. They could embark on working to take care of widows or widowers, children in the orphanage homes for a long time until their good deeds surpasses their evil deeds.
Imagine King David, a beloved and an elect of God committed sin by plotting the killing of his warlord and took over his wife and had a son out of the sinful act. God of vengeance did not forgive him despite all his pleadings. God struck the child dead (2 Samuel 12). I want to seize this opportunity to inform the pastors and head of churches that are laying emphasis on born-again that they have misled a lot of people about the true meaning of born-again. All they preach and teach their followers is prosperity, riches and that if they accept Jesus as their Lord and Saviour all is finished.
For this reason the country and the world are not at peace and more churches and mosques are springing up and the rate of crime and sins are on the increase. Even armed robbers, kidnappers and assassins are invading everywhere, including churches. Even those who are pastors, Muslim clerics holding government positions are embezzling public funds and they are preaching the word of God in their various places of worship. Imagine most of these preachers are rich people that God does not enrich or make millionaires.
These preachers are many among pastors and heads of churches. Brethren, if we want this country and Christendom to change for the better, all those that preach the word of God from the head of Catholic Church, the Pope to the least preacher of God’s words should call out those who want to give their lives to Jesus and become real born-again Christians and tell them to confess and forsake their sins. Then ask who among them have killed a person through robbery or assassination or any other means. They are to start taking care of widows’ children in orphanage homes and old people’s homes who might have lost their husbands, fathers, sons or daughters through robbery or assassination till the end of their lives. It is possible their sins might be forgiven when they pray.
Those that embezzled government fund and claimed to be born-again Christians should return all the loot before they declare their intention to be born-again. Also those that acquire their riches, possession, houses, and vehicles illegitimately cannot and will not be born-again. This is because the Bible says in Matthew 6: 19-21″ Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and thieves break in and steal. But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven where neither moths and rust destroy and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also”.

Brethren how do we regard the words of God? Many people misinterpret what Jesus said in John 19 verse 30 “…….It is finished”. What that statement mean is explained in the story of the Rich man and Lazarus (Luke 16 : 19-31).
What the story implies is that the rich man failed to believe the Prophets of God when he was alive. Similarly, many people will not want what I am saying because they have been brainwashed that when you accept Jesus Christ all is finished, they did not put in their minds that you should return the loots illegally acquired before you could be born-again and beg for forgiveness of sin.
Jesus Christ was misquoted and misunderstood in Matthew 9 vs14 “the disciples of John the Baptist came to him saying why do we and the Pharisees fast often but your disciples do not fast? And Jesus said to them. Can the friends of bridegroom mourn as long as bridegroom is with them? But the days will come when the bridegroom will be taken away from then, and they will fast”. This is a portion of the Bible that is not shown and explained to people.
What the statement means is that since Jesus was around and he had covered and cleansed his disciple sins. But a time would come when he would not be around then his disciples would be taken charge of their sins and forgiveness.
Jesus Christ was always telling the truth to anybody that came his way and never afraid to say the truth low and high people Imagine in Matthew 19 verse 16-21 Jesus exhibited his boldness and truthfulness when he young rich man that there is no good person except his Father in heaven. He told the man to obey the law and abstain from committing sin.
The man responded that he had obeyed the laws. Then Jesus told him to sell his possessions and give the proceeds to the needy. Many men of God are afraid and not courageous to say the truth to their followers.If they are telling the truth to their followers, then gradually the counry will start experiencing better life and peace. Because many followers would have abstain from committing sin.
In the old testament sacrifices were used for atonement of sin but in new testament Jesus shed his blood for the atonement of the sin of thosethat were alive during his time not people living now. What is required of people now is to obey the law and do more of goodness than evil so that your goodness will outweigh your evil deeds.
The ultimate goal of Christians is to make heaven but it is not an easy task. It takes a lot of struggles to achieve that. (Act14vs 23).Finally, the Bible says in Galatian 6 :7-10 “ Do not be deceived. God is not mocked for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he reap…..
