TRANSCRIPT:

Zac Poonen – Bible Teacher

Let’s turn to God’s Word, the book of Hebrews again. We finished in our last session in Hebrews chapter 8, where we saw in the concluding verses of Hebrews 8, we saw in verses 10 to 12 the terms of the New Covenant.

And let me just repeat them once again. Let me start from the bottom with verse 12. The first thing about the New Covenant is, God says, I will not remember your sins anymore.

In the Old Testament, there was a constant remembrance of sin. We read that in chapter 7. They were always remembering sin. In chapter 9, rather, we read about it.

But in the New Covenant, there is no remembrance of sin. It’s very important, if you’ve entered the New Covenant, one thing that you must accept is that God does not remember your past life against you. You may have been brought up in, I mean, you may have lived a very wicked life, but God sees you just like someone was brought up in a very godly family. All his life he’s lived godly.

Sometimes people have lived a very wicked life in the past and got converted. They feel that, well, I’m not as lucky as those other people who lived a very good life from childhood because they had godly parents. Okay? That may be. But now that you’re forgiven, God’s put you in the same level. His past is not remembered, your past is not remembered. What does it matter?

What does it matter if he got 30% and you got zero? Those marks are wiped out. Your past record of the marks you got in old examinations is all wiped out. So there’s no question of whether he got 30 or you got zero or somebody else got 50. All the marks are wiped out.
