Therefore, this is a sin which means that you have to knowingly rejects everything about Christ even though all the evidence points to the truth. In a sense, you must know it is the truth but sill rejects it. Most people have not committed this sin.
a. There is not a number on which God
b. There is no sin that is so bad that God will not forgive if asked.
1) Even if they are as bright as scarlet.
NOTE: This color was made from insects. It is a very bright color and it was used to symbolize the nature of sin.
2) Even if they were as dark like crimson.
NOTE: Many time scarlet and crimson are the same color but Isaiah uses two different words here. This color was on that came from a worm. It was dark reddish color with a blue tint.
c. God can take those sins and clean them out.
NOTE: He would clean them out in such a way so there is no evidence. There is no stain. The scriptures tell us that he casts the sin as far away from as the east is from the west and He remembers them no more.

Illustration: An old preacher talked about a time when he worked in a chemical plant. In this plant, they produced very strong chemicals. There was one chemical, which was kept in a glass vat. This chemical was so powerful that if you dropped a piece of paper in it the paper would dissolve into nothing before it broke the surface. As you watched through the wall of the vat, the paper would go in but you could not see it come through. As soon as it hit the chemical, it was gone. This is how God forgives. His blood cleanses us from sin. It washes it and takes it away so it no longer exists.
Many times, after God forgives us we want to jump in the blood and get them back but they are not there.

2. The reward of repentance is that we shall have the good of the land.
B. The signs and punishment of the lack of repentance.
1. We see the signs of the lack of repentance.
a. There is a refusal to serve Him.
b. There is rebellion against His Word.
2. The punishment of the lack of repentance is death by the sword.
Revelation 19:21 “And the rest were killed with the sword which proceeded from the mouth of Him who sat on the horse. And all the birds were filled with their flesh.”
There are not any sins that God cannot or will not forgive and forget. Whoever, there are many that we will not forgive. We will not forgive others, and we will not forget sins against us. There are sins that we have committed that we will not forgive ourselves for and we cannot forget them. Satan does not what us to forgive and forget because it is a
