Repentence: what is it? It means to be SORRY for an act or action

I felt led of the Lord to post this in all groups I am member of
because people need to know, especially Christians, that if they
sin, they need to repent of that sin. Being saved doesn't exempt you
from sinning. This is a short study on Repentance. I have posted
this before in the past, but it has been revised as the Holy Spirit
led me.

1 John 1:9 - "If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to
forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. "

Jackie (Jonah7_99) once said to me one time: "are you sure you're
not a preacher???? ? Though I am a minister, I'm not called to
preach, but I am called to teach. I have a bachelor's degree in
Theology, but still learning every day and learning that I know
nothing except saved through Jesus Christ.

People I've been through the fire (as many have you have been and
possibly still are), I've been tested and tried like many of you
and I feel a stronger anointing than I had on me before.
I read the posts of many who come short, fail along the way, and
then they feel guilty and they ask for prayer. Nothing wrong with
that, as long as they themselves repent to God and are truly sorry
for their sin.

Romans 8:1 tells us we are not to feel guilty: "There is therefore
now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not
after the flesh, but after the Spirit".

If you sin, if you err, or fall backwards, repent. God will forgive
you. Do not place yourself under condemnation. People, Jesus is
coming again soon. Time is short and running out. WE need to be
doing what God has called us ALL to do. Preach the gospel; spread
the good news. We need to come OUT from under our juniper tree
crying woe is me, stand up, face the enemy.

The word "Repent or Repentance" in the Greek is: "Metanoeo" which
means to perceive, afterwards the mind, reflection. To reflect back
and to perceive that we have done wrong.

In the New Testament this word is used always involving a change for
the better, an amendment, (Luke 17:3 - "Take heed to yourselves, if
thy brother trespass against thee, rebuke him and if he repent,
forgive him") and always of repentance from sin.

The word is found in the Synoptic Gospels in Luke 9 times, in Acts 5
times, in the Apolcalypse 12 times, and 8 in the messages to the

Ephesians 6 speaks of putting on the armor of God, starting in
verse 9. So then if we do falter, do come short, what should we then
do? The answer is simple: REPENT. That is what we should do. Why is
REPENTANCE of sin necessary? To get back into the assuredness that
we will live eternally with the Father in heaven. Sin is separation
from God. We need to be reconciled to the Father.

True repentance will have several distinguishing characteristics:
1). A sense of one's own guilt. 2). A hatred of sin and a
determination to eschew all forms of it (Psa. 119:128). 3). A
turning from sin to the way of God. 4). A persistent endeavor to
walk in holiness according to God's commands (1 John 1:5-9). True
repentance will endeavor to correct the past, (Lev. 6:2-6; Matt.
5:23-24), and results in complete obedience. Godly sorrow for sin is
sorrow that leads one to repent and turn away from an ungodly life.
Many today are sorry indeed, but not with a godly sorrow. Godly
sorrow results in a change of mind and that results in a change of
life, a turning from evil to righteousness.

On the day of Pentecost, after the first gospel sermon a multitude
who are now believing ones ask, "...Men [and] brethren, what shall
we do?" Peter declares, "Repent and be baptized every one of
you.....(Acts 2:38).

Matt. 3:2 "And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at

Matt. 4:17 "From that time Jesus began to preach, and to
say, 'Repent' for the kingdom of heaven is at hand".

Acts 2:38 "Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every
one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins,
and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost".

Acts 3:19 "Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may
be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the
presence of the Lord...."

Acts 8:22 "Repent therefore of this thy wickedness, and pray God, if
perhaps the thought of thine heart may be forgiven thee".

Rev.2:16 "Repent; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will
fight against them with the sword of my mouth". I'm sure there are
many more verses, but I listed just a few.

So then, what shall we do if we sin? Answer: Repent.
Don't let satan put you under condemnation and say, "well I keep
sinning, if I were saved, I wouldn't still sin". This may or may not
be true, however, we are human and none of us is perfect. Can you
find me one person, even one person, who is perfect? Of course not.
Then, arising out of Christ's teaching about "sin" is what He taught
about "repentance for sin".

As we have already seen the tragedy of human sin reveals by
contrast, the height of man's original destiny and therefore the
necessity of a deep repentance because of his fall (in the Garden of

There is a series I teach on called THE DOCTRINE OF SIN which goes
into detail of sin. It is called: "Hamartiology" which comes from two
Greek words, Marmatia, meaning "SIN" and "LOGOS" meaning "word of
discourse". Thus "Harmartiology" is the Biblical teaching conerning
SIN, its origin, definition, expression and final end. Christians we
need to repent of sin in our lives.

Do not let SIN stay unrepented. As a Christian, if you slip and sin
again, REPENT.

Many will agree, in order to be saved one must confess Jesus' name
as did the Eunuch (Acts 8:37). This is the meaning of Paul's
statement in Romans 10:9,10 - "That if thou shalt confess with thy
mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath
raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart
man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is
made unto salvation" (Rom. 10:9, 10).

Matthew 4:17 tells us that "from that time began Jesus to preach and
to say, "Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand". Here
REPENTANCE is set forth as the first aspect of Jesus' ministry.
Therefore, if there is sin in your life, repent of it, then go on
and walk with God. Ask Him to help you not to sin again.
