I have blotted out your transgressions!
My name is Bahija. I was born in Iraq, and I grew up in a Catholic background (Ashuria). I attended church almost every Sunday; and that alone gave me the security that I was complying with my religious duties. Of course, I continually sinned, but I always compared myself to others and believed that I was better off. When my sister and her husband accepted the Lord Jesus as their personal Saviour, I noticed a major change in their life. They acquired special joy and peace. Since they often witnessed to me about God’s love and salvation, I finally decided to read the Bible to check whether I was on the right track. I began reading Romans 3:10-11 "As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one: There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God." Based on God’s word, I realized that I deserved Hell! Being informed of God’s perfect plan for mankind, I opened John 3:16 "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."
On March 5, 1995, I attended a fundamental bible believing church. I gave my life to the Lord Jesus, and repented of my sins and asked Him to cleanse me and make me his own. The Lord answered me in Isaiah 44:22 " I have blotted out, as a thick cloud, thy transgressions, and, as a cloud, thy sins: return unto me; for I have redeemed thee." My life changed with the Lord, I received the peace and joy that my sister and her husband have. For the Lord saved my soul and gave me life everlasting… If you would like to discover this spiritual gratification, begin by reading God’s word and visit God’s true church. Read 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;"
