"Matthew 28:20 Teaching them to observe (do) all things whatsoever I (Jesus Christ) have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen. 2 Corinthians 7:1 ... dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God."

Jesus Christ tells us to repent, sin no more, and walk in his light. If we do, his blood will cleanse all our past sins and our unrighteousness, that causes sin. This is the requirement for forgiveness, by the blood of Jesus Christ, that will give us eternal life. By this, Jesus Christ perfects them that are sanctified.
We all have sinned, and we all accept it. "Romans 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; Romans 5:12 ... all have sinned:" Jesus Christ tells us to repent for the remission of our sins. "Luke 24:47 And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem." Then, Jesus Christ tells us to sin no more. "John 5:14 Afterward Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said unto him, Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee. 8:11 She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more." Then Jesus Christ tells that if we will not sin anymore and walk as he walks, then he will clean our past sins and all our unrighteousness with his blood. Then our past sins are forgiven, and we will not sin anymore so that there will be no more future sins, and we will be perfect. "Romans 3:25 Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God; 1 John 1:7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin. ... 9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness." The churches knows this, but preachers say that we cannot live without sinning. Doctrines are made in support of living in sin and going to heaven in spite of sinning. Churches are all for the doctrine of going to heaven by grace and with sin. But, neither the theologians, nor the churches can take anybody to heaven, but God has to take us to heaven. God forgives all kinds of sins to give us provisions, prosperity, healing, etc, but he will not forgive us by the washing of his own blood, until and unless we stop sinning, by the grace and power of God. When we will not sin anymore, God forgives our past sins, with his blood. This is the forgiveness that will take us to eternity and give us rewards. Churches will not preach this scripture truth. They should not hide this truth.
