I think the verb tenses would mean a believer cannot live in the habit of sin.  We will always sin because it our nature to do so but the blood of Christ paid for those sons (future) and the present and the past.  we have a leaky bucket and the spirit sort of leaks out because of personal sin and to bring thing to normal in our relationship we need to confess them to the Lord.  Then all the clutter is removed between the Lord and the believer.  However he does not forgive more because the sins are already forgiven, rather we take responsibility  for our actions.

I like what the old boys used to say about salvation, "you cain't be unborned."  God bares us as his own and hos own we will remain.  And as weak humans we still sin.

Thanks for your comments.  Good!

The rest of the scripture (on that subject) would bear that out, and that is certainly true. But since that one verse is so precise in its wording, I believe the former in this one instance. No one person can live sinless. But as the scripture teaches, we have an advocate, Jesus Christ.

The was post which sounded very judgmental, saying "I hope the rapture is at the second coming and only those who endure will be caught up."  Or close to a quote.

Paul tells us we are not here to judge the lifestyles of others but to tend our own lives.  It is something called the priesthood of each believer.  We want to tend to each others business and when they fail to live up to our expectations we can point to how good we are or how much better we are.

The disciples were having the same problem with some other people over the hill preaching in the name of Jesus and came running back to the Lord with the tale of woe.  Jesus says to them leave them alone for it they are not against us they must be for us.  He was not intrusive with believers and I believe he remains un-intrusive allowing the priesthood of each believer in the care of the spirit of regeneration and based upon repentance.

If we are judging others it is quite likely we are caught up in see how good I am one ups- manship notion of a works salvation.

My sins require grace and so do the sins of others.

As for Revelation the sequence of events for most  interpretation will remain the same with the exception of rapture placement.  We have clues regarding the timing of it and theological reason exist to support each of the three or four.  It is going to happen when when Jesus says so.  He will protect us because we are sealed with they Holy Spirit and the name of God is written upon us.  We need to continue the preaching to gospel till we are taken, that is the mission of the church.

Religious Lie: "God only paid for sins until the next time you sin."
Forgiveness is available until we get to eternity and then our eternal fate is sealed. Right now, people are free to sin and repent; but there is no forgiveness of sin for the damned in hell.

JUST A THINK ABOUT IT: Will you embrace the full meaning of Christmas? Jesus didn't die just so you could go to heaven. He came to give you life - His life; an abundant life free from guilt, condemnation, and slavery to both sins and religion. He came to bring a grace revolution to the world and tha
