Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord. Acts 3:19
I know that this was a message to the nation of Israel, which was to compel them to REPENT or to TURN AWAY FROM their sins INDIVIDUALLY, and then TO TURN AWAY as a nation. And they were to TURN TO GOD, in order for their sins to be WIPED OUT, therefore, they would NOT be held ACCOUNTABLE for them.
I believe that this verse of Scripture could be applicable to UNBELIEVERS, whether they are JEW or GENTILE. Isaiah 45:22, says: “Turn to Me and be saved, ALL you ends of the earth; for I am God, and there is NO OTHER.” He is the RIGHTEOUS GOD, and a SAVIOR, and there is NO OTHER GOD apart from Him. “SALVATION is found in NO ONE ELSE, for there is NO OTHER name under Heaven given to MANKIND by which we MUST be SAVED” (Acts 4:12). Just call out the PRECIOUS, WONDERFUL, POWERFUL, MERCIFUL name, JESUS, which is ABOVE ALL OTHER NAMES in Heaven or on Earth.
The act of REPENTANCE is to TURN AWAY FROM SIN and TURN TO RIGHTEOUSNESS, which is found in the act of SALVATION, which was brought about through the shed blood of the PRECIOUS SACRIFICAL LAMB of GOD, the LORD JESUS CHRIST. Who died in YOUR and MY place on an old, cruel, rugged cross. He took our SUFFERING and DEATH, and ALL the sins of ALL mankind, upon Himself, in order for MANKIND to be SAVED, and to PROVIDE them with an ETERNITY in HEAVEN. And to be able to ESCAPE HELL, with ALL of its HORRORS. Have you made the TURN that will determine your destiny? HEAVEN or HELL?
In order to receive God’s gift of SALVATION, you MUST BE WILLING TO TURN AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle, and to TURN TO GOD, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART. Then CONFESS your sins to Him, and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS. BELIEVE, with ALL your HEART, that JESUS died for YOU, and that He is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God. Then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and TURN FROM sin, TO RIGHTEOUSNESS, and TURN FROM an ETERNITY in HELL to an ETERNITY in HEAVEN. Do this NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
