951. Forgiveness Assured for All Time - The High Priest Sat Down

If a believer in Christ becomes tempted to ask God for more forgiveness over and over, this is a sign they have not yet come to realize the plenitude of God's forgiveness that came through the one sacrifice of Jesus.

Sins kept happening so the blood of bulls and goats kept rolling down the sacrificial conveyor belt. And now the good news ...

Because the issue of forgiveness was completed. He finished the job.
