Dear U R,
I received Your letter and again called my family, friends, and other local Pastors together to my house. We all feel we are hearing a new TRUTH and seeing for the first time the real TRUTH as it is written.
One of our group checked out the scriptures in Colossians 2:14-15 and we really saw for the first time the impossibility of what we have been taught. We continued searching the words You sent to us and we saw the TRUTH of all You wrote to us. Beginning with Numbers 21:9 and David’s Psalm 22:6 we went right on to John and Peter’s eyewitness account of Christ› resurrection and now we KNOW that He is not hanging on the cross! For He ascended to You after nailing our sins and everything that was written against us to the cross. It is there for all to see and until now we had not seen it. As the blind man in John 9 said, «Now I see», we also say, «now we see!»
Why have we not been taught this before?
In the same passage of John 9 we saw where You said, «We know that God heareth not sinners» so we ask, what is this SINNER›S PRAYER we keep hearing in MAN MADE CHURCHES and especially from the TELEVANGELISTS?
We would like to hear more about the cross as You said it could not be conveyed in one letter, also about this so called SINNER›S PRAYER.
We thank You for teaching us as You stated in Jeremiah 31:34 and confirmed in John 6:45, «they shall be all taught of God.» In joy and thanksgiving we are…
Your Pastors and Friends,
PS – we found a copy of this SINNER›S PRAYER in a magazine to send to You:
Lord Jesus, I ask You to come into my life and forgive me of all my sins. I confess my sins before You this day. I denounce satan and all his works. I confess Jesus as the Lord of my life. Thank You for saving me. I believe with my heart and I confess with my mouth that You rose from the dead. I am saved. Write my name in the Lamb’s book of life. Today is my God-day with the Lord Jesus! I pray this prayer to the Father in the name of Jesus. Amen.
If you just prayed this prayer, congratulations! «You are born again», a «new creature in Christ» and, as 2 Corinthians 5:17 says… «old things are past away; behold, all things are become new.»
What does this mean?
