Jesus Christ Has Infinite Mercy and Forgiveness
When Jesus Christ comes the second time it will be as the Just Judge, but right now, at this very moment and until His second coming He is the merciful Saviour. Some people may have it in the their mind to come to Jesus for forgiveness and salvation right now, but they say to themselves to leave it for another time until they achieve this or that. Remember death does not wait for people to be saved before striking, death comes and goes at the will of God and it can strike down any soul, at any time. Indeed Jesus will be their for all who believe and will wait for you for a time, but remember time is short. This message of time being short and the need to be watchful of the times is echoed through the Gospel and shouldn't be something to disregard.
"But of that day or hour no one knows, neither the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but the Father only. Take heed, watch and pray, for you do not know when the time is: just as a man, when he leaves home to journey abroad, puts his servants in charge, to each his work, and gives orders to the porter to keep watch. Watch, therefore, for you do not know when the master of the house is coming, in the evening, or at midnight, or at cockcrow, or early in the morning; lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping. And what I say to you, I say to all, 'Watch.'"
--- Mark 13:32-37
Some people may think forgiveness is not for them, that their sins are to great to be forgiven. In the Old Testament the prophet Isaias prophesied of Jesus Christs first coming and the Lord spoke to him, saying the following:
"Wash yourselves, be clean, take away the evil of your devices from my eyes: cease to do perversely, learn to do well: seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge for the fatherless, defend the widow. And then come, and accuse me, saith the Lord: if your sins be as scarlet, they shall be made as white as snow: and if they be red as crimson, they shall be white as wool."
--- Isaias 1:18
In the biblical book known as the Acts Of The Apostles, found in the New Testament, Saint Paul says the following about Jesus Christ's forgiveness:
"Be it known therefore to you, brethren, that through him forgiveness of sins is proclaimed to you, and in him everyone who believes is acquitted of all the things of which you could not be acquitted by the Law of Moses."
--- Acts Of The Apostles 13:38-39
Jesus Christ's mercy and forgiveness are endless and people should take the opportunity that Jesus gives everyone who have sinned. There is still hope, mercy and forgiveness for anyone who comes to the Lord Jesus Christ seeking forgiveness in belief, faith and love.
Before Jesus died on the cross, where some people may have cursed their accusers or found it hard to forgive them, Jesus asks God the Father for forgiveness for his accusers the very people who placed Him on the cross to die.
And Jesus said, "Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing."
--- Luke 23:34
If you are unsure of Jesus Christ's mercy and forgiveness, just look in the Gospel. When Jesus was being crucified, there was two thief's on either side of Him. One thief began to verbally abuse Jesus and the other thief rebuked the abusing thief, for they were deserving of their faith to die on the cross but Jesus was not and was innocent. The good thief asks Jesus to remember him when He enters His kingdom. Jesus said to the good thief that when He enters into paradise, the good thief will be by his side, all sins forgiven. So if Jesus can forgive the sins of a thief, who only believed Jesus is Lord near his time of death, then we all have a solid hope in Jesus for mercy and forgiveness.
Now one of those robbers who were hanged was abusing him, saying, "If thou art the Christ, save thyself and us!" But the other in answer rebuked him and said, "Dost not even thou fear God, seeing that thou art under the same sentence? And we indeed justly, for we are receiving what our deeds deserved; but this man has done nothing wrong." and he said to Jesus, "Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom." And Jesus said to him, "Amen I say to thee, this day thou shalt be with me in paradise."
--- Luke 23:39-43
Bottom line is, Jesus Christ has Infinite mercy, forgiveness and love. Happy are those who realize this and seek His forgiveness and mercy for their sins for we are all sinners, everyone of us and only through our belief, faith and love in Jesus Christ are we made perfect in the sight of God, our sins washed away by our Saviour who suffered, gave His life, died and was resurrected for that very reason.
But if we deny ourselves the opportunity of forgiveness through Jesus then we go it alone to face the Just Judge who will Judge you according to your sins, you will not have the 'get out of jail free card' instead you will come before the Judgement Chair of God imperfect and sinful. Your faith will lay in the hands of God who will judge you justly.
For God so loved the world that he gave his only-begotten Son, that those who believe in him may not perish, but may have life everlasting. For God did not send his Son into the world in order to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through him. He who believes in him is not judged; but he who does not believe is already judged, because he does not believe in the name of the only-begotten Son of God. Now this is the judgement: The light has come into the world, yet men have loved the darkness rather than the light, for their works were evil. For everyone who does evil hates the light, and does not come to the light, that his deeds may not be exposed. But he who does the truth comes to the light that his deeds may be made manifest, for they have been performed in God.
--- John 3:16-21
And he answered and said to them, "Do you think that these Galileans were worse sinners than all the other Galileans, because they have suffered such things? I tell you, no; but unless you repent, you will all perish in the same manner. Or those eighteen upon whom the tower of Siloe fell and killed them; do you think that they were more guilty than all the other dwellers in Jerusalem? I tell you, no; but unless you repent, you will all perish in the same manner."
--- Luke 13:2-5
Pray with heart: Lord Jesus Christ, I want to Know you, I want to Love you. Your mercy is vast, please forgive me for my sins and please help and guide me to stay on the narrow path that leads to your Heavenly Kingdom. Amen.
