God Is Love, and He Loves Repentance!

Imagine your sin for what it is, as filthy rags before our righteous and perfect Father God. To Yahweh Elohim, our sin is so disgusting and horrible to look at, it is like what viewing vomit or excrement is for us! Now imagine what an unrepentant sinner looks like to God. Can you picture someone covered in vomit or excrement coming to you and asking you for a hug without washing themselves off first? Yet this what so many people I have met within the Body of Yahshua are saying that Yahweh Elohim does and is willing to do!

We are often told that God loves the sinner but hates the sin, and this is true. But how can a perfect and just God truly love anyone if their sin completely repulses Him? Yet the Bible says He can and does get past His disgust of our sin to love us all, even when we are filthy sinners! But the truth is that God the Father can only love us from a great distance so as not to be sick with repulsion every time He views us as unrepentant sinners! This is where Yahshua comes into play, and God’s real love for us can get past His natural repulsion toward our sin.

Only the sacrificed blood of Yahshua, which allows God to exchange the filthy sin rags clothing us for Yahshua’s robe of holiness and perfection, can ever make us worthy of God the Father’s love! And only the Spirit of God, tirelessly and mercifully working to reach us with the message that God can forgive us of every crime and take away our sin so that we can be worthy of His perfect Love, can help us understand that God’s love is far more satisfying and pleasurable than any sin could ever be!

But unless you have entered a covenant or pact with Yahshua by promising to love and follow Him, and you have a real relationship with Him through His Spirit living in you, you are disgusting and ugly beyond imagining to God the Father. Though Yahweh God loves what you could become when you surrender to His Will through Yahshua, and are filled with the Holy Spirit, God will one day be forced to destroy you if you do not repent and fulfill your potential to be like Yahshua!

At the Great White Throne Judgment, the Bible clearly states that God the Father will cast everyone whose name is not written in the Book of Life via their repentance into the Lake of Fire along with their father the Devil (See Revelation 20:11-15). Therefore, the message of the Bible is this:
“Our heavenly Father God Yahweh is perfect and abundant Love - a love so wonderful that it can and will fulfill every desire of your heart! You can accept God’s perfect love for His Son Yahshua as your own when you repent, surrender your will to God, and ask Yahshua into your life, or perish forever in Hell The choice is yours. God will NOT allow an unrepentant sinner into His Kingdom (See 1 Corinthians 6:8-10). Repent or Perish!
