We ran across this quote while studying the Seventh Seal on last week. It seemed to be a perfect follow-up to the message that was preached on Sunday, entitled “The Darkness Is Past”.
THE.SEVENTH.SEAL_ JEFF.IN SUNDAY_ 63-0324EI thank God for His Word; I thank Him for Jesus Christ. For without sending Him for the–the propitiation of our sins, we’d all be in a big muck of sin with no hope. But by His grace, His–His Blood cleanses all sin. Just like the drop of ink in a bucket of Clorox, you’d never find the ink again. When our sins are confessed, it’s put in the Blood of Jesus Christ; they’ll never be known again. God forgets them; they never was even done. And as long as that Sacrifice is laying there in an atonement for us, then that’s all… That’s it. See? We’re not sinners no more; we’re Christians by the grace of God.And remember, in our ownselves we’d probably be just as bad as we ever was, but see, the grace of God has appeared to us, and that’s what’s made us what we are today: Christian brothers and sisters.William Branham
I JOHN 2:1-81 My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous:2 And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.3 And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments.4 He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.5 But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him.6 He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.7 Brethren, I write no new commandment unto you, but an old commandment which ye had from the beginning. The old commandment is the word which ye have heard from the beginning.8 Again, a new commandment I write unto you, which thing is true in him and in you: because the darkness is past, and the true light now shineth.
