No sin is hiddenEverything we have done inour lives is recorded in abookThis book includes everyrighteous deed & every sinWe must resist temptation& obey because God sees,hears & knows allLet us remember god’sjudgment... “the soul thatsinneth shall die” ©2011 Household Of Israel Temple Of Jesus Christ.

  • 10. Hope remains.... In looking at that judgment one might think that there is no hope to be saved Our hope is in christ who was sent on this earth by god the father to die for our sins Through the shedding of christ’s blood.... We were granted forbearance & grace, which provides us the opportunity to turn from sin & walk in truth (See class on “Grace”) The curse of Adam’s sin was taken away, meaning those who obey God would NOT die an ETERNAL DEATH & would rise up in the resurrection during the last days ©2011 Household Of Israel Temple Of Jesus Christ.

  • 11. During the last days The day of atonement has not been fulfilled He will blot out the sins in our record books with his blood Only then will the sins in our record books be permanently removed For most of God’s people, the evil root or the knowledge of evil is removed at the common death; therefore, they will resurrect with immortal flesh having undefiled hearts & minds For a few, those who will live to see him come, the evil root will be removed during the outpouring of the holy spirit at the time of harvest ©2011 Household Of Israel Temple Of Jesus Christ.

  • 12. Keep this in mind... On the day of atonement we must remember that Christ is in the most holy place in heaven & appearing before God the father on our behalf He is our high priest & atonement We must fast & pray, repenting for our sins just as our ancient fathers did Because Atonement has yet to be fulfilled the door of mercy is still open Let us call upon the Lord today while it is still today ©2011 Household Of Israel Temple Of Jesus Christ.
