Today I feel really sad because one of my YouTube subscribers decided to end his life.
Last month when I made this video about feeling unforgiven,this Pastor had reached out to me to tell me about how he has never felt forgiven of sin from years ago despite repenting.
I had gone through that before, like I shared in the video.
At the beginning of my journey with Jesus, satan would constantly accuse me of past sin.
I have come across so many people also going through that and that’s why I felt the need to share the video to help more people going through that.
I also asked this Pastor to watch the video and he confirmed he did but that he still believed he couldn’t be forgiven because he still had feelings of guilt.
I had a lengthy exchange of email with him about this and shared how Jesus had told me to believe His promise to forgive our sins and showed him from scripture, God’s promises to forgive and that He casts our sins far away when we repent.
I remember I specifically shared 1 John 1:9
“If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”
I told him that’s satan accusing him because he constantly accuses and his accusations don’t mean it’s how God feels.
He told me even if the scripture I showed him said there’s forgiveness it’s still hard to believe because he doesn’t feel so.
He still chose to disbelieve God’s promises to forgive us and rely on feelings of being unforgiven for past sin.
I was so sad to learn that the he decided to end his life because of satan’s accusations of past sin from years ago.
He just couldn’t believe the promise of God even after reading it from scripture.
It’s so heart breaking that satan succeeded with his lies.
No word satan says is ever true.
The bible cautions us that satan has been a liar from the very beginning.
He only wants to steal,kill, and destroy.
He’s been a liar from the beginning.
Just because you feel unforgiven doesn’t mean you are unforgiven.
God’s forgivness doesn’t depend on your feelings.
Believe what God has promised in His word, don’t believe your feelings because they can be manipulated by satan.
God doesn’t lie.
Never ever resort to suicide for anything.
We are not the owners of of lives.Suicide is murder,its self murder.
No one has a right to take their life.
We didn’t give life to ourselves.
Only God can take our lives.
It’s always better to cast your burden to Jesus.
I used to feel unforgiven and Jesus told me I must believe what He has said in His word.
YOUR FEELINGS CAN LIE TO YOU BUT GOD DOESN’T LIE!
Believe God regardless of how you feel,He can’t lie.
Let’s keep his family in prayer for comfort.
Watch the video I made for anyone who feels unforgiven
