Or despisest thou the riches of his goodness and forbearance and longsuffering; not knowing that the goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance? But after thy hardness and impenitent heart treasurest up unto thyself wrath against the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God; Who will render to every man according to his deeds: To them who by patient continuance in well doing seek for glory and honour and immortality, eternal life. (Romans 2:4-7, KJV)
Plan and Purpose
All of us as God’s creation is born in sin nature with a conscience in which the conscience is lead by Holy Spirit. Holy Spirit is the third person of the Godhead to reveal who God is and that He is Almighty as the source of all things. We are God’s created spirits and souls made for His Glory. God has placed and stationed Holy Spirit on the earth to reveal Himself and the Truth of all things.
The Consciousness of Guilt
The purpose of experiencing guilt in our conscience in this life is for the saving and repenting of a soul unto holiness and salvation as we continue to perfect holiness on each day of our lives, even as the scriptures of the One True Faith teaches us. For those who continually reject the One True Faith of God will carry their guilts, regrets, and sins to everlasting torment. Feelings of guilt is only temporary for the believer so that we will have godly sorrow unto repentance. Therefore, we should be apologetic in our faith, doctrine, and walk (how we think and live). God will not cast away any soul that is sincere in the One True Faith that is of Him.
Experiencing His Goodness
In spite of being born in sin nature, God has sent His Son, Jesus to show us the way and the life for us to become more than conquerors in Him. Jesus became a man to show us how to walk with God by the Faith that is of Him. The first and most vital step in walking with God is to repent. Without repentance, there remain no more sacrifice for sin because Jesus has died and was resurrected only one time for the whole world by the commandment and Faith of God. Therefore, God’s goodness is upon the whole world right now under this dispensation of grace so that we could be saved from the wrath of God that is to come upon the world.
Therefore, the whole point of this writing is to REPENT so that we will be allowed to continue in God’s Goodness forever. There is a need for repentance in the world today to not only experience His Goodness without repentance, but to yield, submit, and do the will of God by way of repenting of all things that are not of the One True Faith that only comes from the One True God who is Father of all.
