Calling ALL Nations to REPENT

Humble yourselves, bow down before YaHuWaH, the God Most High YahuShua, the Holy One of Israel YAHShua, the King of kings & Lord of lords

If that nation, against whom I have pronounced, turn from their evil, I will repent of the evil that I thought to do unto them. Jeremiah 18:8

Thus saith the LORD; Stand in the court of the LORD's house, and speak unto all the cities of Judah, which come to worship in the LORD's house, all the words that I command thee to speak unto them; diminish not a word: If so be they will hearken, and turn every man from his evil way, that I may repent me of the evil, which I purpose to do unto them because of the evil of their doings. And thou shalt say unto them, Thus saith the LORD; If ye will not hearken to me, to walk in my law, which I have set before you, to hearken to the words of my servants the prophets, whom I sent unto you, both rising up early, and sending them, but ye have not hearkened; Then will I make this house like Shiloh, and will make this city a curse to all the nations of the earth. Jeremiah 26 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Repent, and turn yourselves from your idols; and turn away your faces from all your abominations. That the house of Israel may go no more astray from me, neither be polluted any more with all their transgressions; but that they may be my people, and I may be their God, saith the Lord GOD. Ezekiel 14

The soul that sinneth, it shall die. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son: the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him. But if the wicked will turn from all his sins that he hath committed, and keep all my statutes, and do that which is lawful and right, he shall surely live, he shall not die. All his transgressions that he hath committed, they shall not be mentioned unto him: in his righteousness that he hath done he shall live. Have I any pleasure at all that the wicked should die? saith the Lord GOD: and not that he should return from his ways, and live? But when the righteous turneth away from his righteousness, and committeth iniquity, and doeth according to all the abominations that the wicked man doeth, shall he live? All his righteousness that he hath done shall not be mentioned: in his trespass that he hath trespassed, and in his sin that he hath sinned, in them shall he die. Yet ye say, The way of the LORD is not equal. Hear now, O house of Israel; Is not my way equal? are not your ways unequal? When a righteous man turneth away from his righteousness, and committeth iniquity, and dieth in them; for his iniquity that he hath done shall he die.  Again, when the wicked man turneth away from his wickedness that he hath committed, and doeth that which is lawful and right, he shall save his soul alive. Because he considereth, and turneth away from all his transgressions that he hath committed, he shall surely live, he shall not die. Yet saith the house of Israel, The way of the LORD is not equal. O house of Israel, are not my ways equal? are not your ways unequal? Therefore I will judge you, O house of Israel, every one according to his ways, saith the Lord GOD. Repent, and turn yourselves from all your transgressions; so iniquity shall not be your ruin. Cast away from you all your transgressions, whereby ye have transgressed; and make you a new heart and a new spirit: for why will ye die, O house of Israel? For I have no pleasure in the death of him that dieth, saith the Lord GOD: wherefore turn yourselves, and live ye. Ezekiel 18

For I desired mercy, and not sacrifice; and the knowledge of God more than burnt offerings. Hosea 6:6

Are you a good person?
Have you broken any of the 10 commandments? Have you lie? Have you cheat? Have you steal? Have you curse? Have you disobey your parents? Have you covet others personal things? Then you are NOT a good person. Breaking 1 command, is the same as breaking the 10. Then you are a SINNER. Just like everyone else.
However, GOD is full of compassion & mercy to His created ones. If we confess our sins & ask for forgiveness, He will forgive us. For He does not retain His anger forever. He will cleanse us from our sins, by the precious blood of Jesus Christ, the Righteous one who has NO sin, who fulfilled the LAW.. by obeying the 10 Commandments of God. Who is a God like unto thee, that pardoneth iniquity, and passeth by the transgression of the remnant of his heritage? He retaineth not his anger for ever, because he delighteth in mercy. He will turn again, he will have compassion upon us; he will subdue our iniquities; and thou wilt cast all their sins into the depths of the sea. Micah 7:18-19

Therefore also now, saith the LORD, turn ye even to me with all your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with mourning: And rend your heart, and not your garments, and turn unto the LORD your God: for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repenteth him of the evil. Who knoweth if he will return and repent, and leave a blessing behind him; even a meat offering and a drink offering unto the LORD your God? Blow the trumpet in Zion, sanctify a fast, call a solemn assembly: Gather the people, sanctify the congregation, assemble the elders, gather the children, and those that suck the breasts: let the bridegroom go forth of his chamber, and the bride out of her closet. Let the priests, the ministers of the LORD, weep between the porch and the altar, and let them say, Spare thy people, O LORD, and give not thine heritage to reproach, that the heathen should rule over them: wherefore should they say among the people, Where is their God? Then will the LORD be jealous for his land, and pity his people. Joel 2

But I hear you say, “We are not Israel, this only applies for Israel.”
Then why do you worship the God of Israel, then? The God of Israel, is the God of all gods, the God of all nations, the God Most High, the Host of all heavenly hosts. God is no respecter of persons: But in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with him. Acts 10: 34-35

Every nation will be shaken by YaHuWaH. Every ungodly nation will experience the Wrath & Judgment of God, ..unless they repent of their sins & turn from their evil ways.

And the word of the LORD came unto Jonah the second time, saying, Arise, go unto Nineveh, that great city, and preach unto it the preaching that I bid thee. So Jonah arose, and went unto Nineveh, according to the word of the LORD. Now Nineveh was an exceeding great city of three days' journey. And Jonah began to enter into the city a day's journey, and he cried, and said, Yet forty days, and Nineveh shall be overthrown. So the people of Nineveh believed God, and proclaimed a fast, and put on sackcloth, from the greatest of them even to the least of them. For word came unto the king of Nineveh, and he arose from his throne, and he laid his robe from him, and covered him with sackcloth, and sat in ashes. And he caused it to be proclaimed and published through Nineveh by the decree of the king and his nobles, saying, Let neither man nor beast, herd nor flock, taste any thing: let them not feed, nor drink water: But let man and beast be covered with sackcloth, and cry mightily unto God: yea, let them turn every one from his evil way, and from the violence that is in their hands. Who can tell if God will turn and repent, and turn away from his fierce anger, that we perish not? And God saw their works, that they turned from their evil way; and God repented of the evil, that he had said that he would do unto them; and he did it not. Jonah 3

Why do we need to repent?
Because GOD is a pure, clean, righteous & holy GOD. His ways are righteous & holy. Sinners, Evil, Wicked, Filthy persons are not acceptable in His glorious & righteous eternal kingdom. GOD has a law & order in His House. Therefore, He disciplines us & cleanses us for us to be worthy to live with Him in His Everlasting Kingdom. GOD teaches us to always humble ourselves before Him. GOD teaches us to always repent of our sins; and only by the blood of JESUS CHRIST, can we be cleansed from our sins. As a father disciplines his son, so as Our Heavenly Father discipline His children.. BUT.. not according to manʼs ways.. Abba Father, is more loving, patient, kind, merciful, gracious and is always ready to forgive. Unlike those earthly fathers, who are hot-tempered, quick to anger & hurts their children when committing sin. GOD is not like us, man. He always forgives & accepts, as long as man REPENTS.

Thou shalt also consider in thine heart, that, as a man chasteneth his son, so the LORD thy God chasteneth thee. Deuteronomy 8:5 For whom the LORD loveth he correcteth; even as a father the son in whom he delighteth. Proverbs 3:12 But when we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord, that we should not be condemned with the world. 1 Corinthians 11:32

For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth. Hebrews 12:6  Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent. Revelation 2:5 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent. Revelation 3:19

In fact Jesus came to save the lost. Jesus came to call sinners to repentance. Jesus came to wash away the sins of the world. Jesus paid the wages of the sins of the world, which is DEATH.

These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me. Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures, And said unto them,

Thus it is written, and thus it behooved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day; And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. Luke 24
From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. Matthew 4 And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: Repent ye, and believe the gospel. Mark 1 I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish. Luke 13

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.
For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the LORD our God shall call. And with many other words did he testify and exhort, saying, Save yourselves from this untoward generation. Acts 2 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 3 Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man's device. And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent: Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead. Acts 17

Repentance is NOT just ONCE in a lifetime .. then go & do the SAME SIN again. True Repentance is hating of sin .. and willingness to be transformed in the likeness of Christ, the image of Our Father. True Repentance is being sorrowful for hurting our Father .. and the earnest desire, not to displease Him again.

Just as YahuShua said..

Go and sin NO MORE.
Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent. Repent; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will fight against them with the sword of my mouth. Revelation 2: 5 & 16 Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee. I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see. As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent. Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. Revelation 3: 3 & 18-20
