“Dear Lord,

Forgive me all my conscious and unconscious sins. I renounce any sin and evil. I renounce you, The Satan. Jesus, I trust that You died for me on Calvary and shed Your Sacred Blood. I trust that through this prayer of confession You will forgive me all my sins and wash them away with Your Sacred blood. Come into my heart, wash my sins with Your Blood and be my Lord. Let me be born from on high through Your Word and the Holy Spirit. Open Your Holy Writ to me. Confide in me and come into my heart and be My Lord to my dying day and save my soul for Your Holy Kingdom”

 

Why is this prayer necessary?

We can find answer in Bible if we read verses of the Holy Writ given below. But first I would like to give an example.  If you have children let’s imagine that your child has committed an offence. You want to punish him. But before to do it you can ask: “Why did you do this?” Usually we get an answer:

1.     He deceives.

2.     He tries to lay the blame on other children.

3.     He tries to justify himself and invents different stories that result in offence.

4.     After punishment he continues to do the same.

5.     He tells the truth and asks our pardon.

 

I think that if child told the truth and asked your pardon you would not punish him. Ask yourself: “Are my children always honest with me? Do we always say the truth to our parents?” If your answers are negative then ask you again: “Why does it happen in our and our children’s lives?”

Do you like behavior of your child when he does not tell you the truth?

 

We have the same relations with our Heavenly Father. We can sin and justify ourselves, make up different answers to salve our conscience. We can lie to ourselves and burn our conscience that it would not judge us and then think out: “Why are there problems and damnation in my life? I am so pious.”

In this sermon we’ll consider what to do that our children won’t lie and commit an offence and we’ll do the same before God.

We can deceive ourselves but it’s impossible to deceive God. If you want to get rid of problems and damnation in your life, to bring up a child according to the Holy Writ, if you don’t want to see him in future as a drug addict, alcoholic or criminal I would like you take into consideration following recommendation given in Bible.

“From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand” (According to Matthew 4:17).

“Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost” (The Acts 2:38).

“For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus” (Romans 3: 23-24).

“Bring forth therefore fruits meet for repentance” (Matthew 3:8).

“But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy. And if ye call on the Father, who without respect of persons judgeth according to every man’s work, pass the time of your sojourning here in fear: Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; But with the precious blood  of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot: Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you, Who by him do believe in God, that raised him up from the dead, and gave him glory; that your faith and hope might be in God. Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently: Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever” (The First Epistle General of Peter 1: 15-23).

“Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God” (Second Corinthians 5:20).

 

Why do we sin? We become guilty before God because of following reasons:

1.     We are born with genetic sins of our fathers and ancestors from Adam and Eve to our parents.

2.     We bring our sins to children.

3.     We sin ourselves and often don’t reconcile to God.

4.     Sin divided us from God and because of it we don’t have power not to sin. We give a place to devil that brings deceases, depressions, problems in family and in job, in society.

5.     We sin because the Holy Spirit does not live in our heart.

 

Listed above verses from the Holy Writ confirm that God is Holy and He would not deal with sinful man until he repents and obtains holiness through Jesus Christ. If a man does not have contact with God he does not have power not to sin. It is proven by history of humanity and by our life.

 

I think that everyone does not want to have problems. I think that any mother wishes that her children were not ill, imprisoned, and took alcoholic or narcotic, got into criminal group. Today a lot of people especially young take alcoholic or drug. Sometimes parents even don’t know how to save their children from this disaster. Nowadays many people suffer from depressions and mental derangements. Their hearts feel emptiness inside which hurts.

 

You can pretend that everything is all right in your family and suffer during all your life. But you can try to solve your problems.

 

If you don’t want to have problems depressing you then you need God. You have to reconcile yourselves to your Savior Jesus Christ. In His first preach Jesus Christ appealed to repent. That’s why the Lord offers you to repent through His Word.

Why did Jesus Christ having come on the earth start preaching about repentance?

The Holy Writ tells us that all people have sinned and are devoid if God glory. In other words there may be God’s glory or depressions and damnations in your life. There is no golden medium in this case. So our world is arranged: you can choose to have God defense or to have diseases and damnation from the Satan.

 

We were born with sins. Many of us have got damnations of their fathers and forefathers not to mention our sins. When I am told “I have never killed and stolen” I usually answer that everyone copied off somebody’s test at school. When we say about our sinless, according to John we lie to ourselves and furthermore we don’t have His truth.  We present Him as lying but God can not lie in His word.

 

God bless us when He really lives in our heart. If we have no place for God in our heart then wicked spirit occupies it and we know whose this spirit is. God is Holy and He can not live in sinful heart. The Lord loves His creation—a man. And He saw that a man can not perform the Ten Commandments and a man is under damnation. God is love and righteous judge. As righteous judge He had to punish every one of us for our sins. As God of love He doesn’t want to do it. That’s why He has a plan of human salvation from damnation. The Lord sent His only begotten Son on this earth in flesh that Jesus Christ took our blame upon Himself. He sent His only begotten Son to the Calvary where all human sins and damnations were nailed down. It is confirmed in the Holy Writ:

 

“For God so loved the world, that he grave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlanding life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that beliveth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God” (Gospel according to John, chapter 3, verses 16-18).

“Christ hath redeemed us from the course of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed every one that hangeth on a tree” (Galatians 3:13).

 

You can ask: If Jesus Christ took our damnations upon himself why do we have so many problems? Answer is simple: we have an access to Calvary but our sins and damnations will leave there only if: 1) we have forgiveness of all our sins through the prayer of confession; 2) we don’t sin.

 

You can say - exclusive circle. But God does not have exclusive circles. I’ll name some reasons why Jesus Christ was crucified on Calvary, for what we need the prayer of confession and where you can get power not to sin:

 

1)     We can not be vindicated by money or good deeds. Our sins can be washed just by Sacred Blood of Jesus Christ. After repentance your life must be confirmed by good deeds.

 

2)     A man can live according to the Holy Writ on the earth only with the help of the Holy Spirit.

 

“But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by His Spirit that dwelleth in you”(Romans 8:11).

 

The Heavenly Father raised up Jesus Christ by force of the Holy Spirit. When we take repentance before God this force of the Holy Spirit comes into our heart and gives power not to sin. The Holy Spirit settles in man’s heart after sincere prayer of confession. I could not perform the Ten Commandments for 38 years. When I have repented I never broke the Ten Commandments because the Holy Spirit dwells in my heart.

If you attend church and continue to sin it means that you didn’t meet God and didn’t have sincere prayer of confession. In new Evangelical churches people often think if they repeat the prayer of confession after somebody they would not ever sin. God gives a prayer of confession if a man searches Him. Only after sincere prayer of confession we can bring a worthy fruit of repentance.

 

3) A man must know in what to believe but not in what others say to believe. The Holy Spirit will open you Bible.

 

4) A man will obtain eternal life only through Jesus Christ, and only The Holy spirit will lead a man to paradise gates.

 

5) Through the prayer of confession and being born from above we’ll become sons of God. “But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name” (John 1:12).

Having a power from God we are praying for our families, for our problems. Thanks to our prayers many our relatives come to God. As it is written “God is Spirit; and where God Spirit is there is a freedom” – freedom from damnations, freedom from depressions, freedom from sin, freedom from satan. The Holy Spirit gives tears of gladness. If I could express by words what a happiness to weep out on my knees before God having received Father’s love. You can feel it if you reconcile with God through Jesus Christ.

 

You have to choose to live with damnations or take Jesus Christ into your heart through the prayer of confession. He will come into your heart by the Holy Spirit in order to give you gladness of relations with Him on this earth and to give you an eternal life where as written in Revelation, chapter 21, verses 1-8:

 

“And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. And I John saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God. And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful. And he said unto me, It’s done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely. He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.  But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerer, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”

 

You have to decide to live on this earth in blessings or damnations, to have eternal life in paradise or eternal torments. I advise you to find Evangelical church and to attend it for listening sermons. Through sermons you’ll better understand why repentance is necessary. If you look for God He will necessarily give you the prayer of confession not in words but in heart. Through this prayer you’ll establish relations with God and you won’t sin.

 

Even if our children tell us true we sometimes can punish them in a burst of anger. God can do the same. "Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should have no compassion on the son of her womb? Even these may forget, yet I will not forget you. Behold, I have graven you on the palms of my hands; your walls are continually before me” (Isaiah 49: 15-16). Can not we accept such love from God? Is it wise from our side to suffer in sins and damnations all our life and then because of us our children suffer? Is it right for us to leave not blessings but damnations for our children?

 

You are personality and you have to decide to be with God or not. God does not have fortuities if you have read this sermon by chance. It means that God gives you a chance to be reconciled with Him through the Prayer of Confession.

 

I offer you to accept blessings and eternal life after this earth life through the Prayer of Confession relying on the Holy Writ.

 

God bless You!
