"Under the blood" is a non-Biblical Christian duckspeak phrase that is used by pop-evangelicals as if it meant something.

I'll be curious to see what answers you get here.

Which apostle never died?
How does that make you feel?

One repents of one's sins by turning away from them. Asking forgiveness every week for the same old sins in not an example of repentance but of callous disregard for the need to walk in a Christlike way. He was sinless, and had all the temptations of man, proving that every man and woman can reject sin.

Choose ye therefore this day... as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.
---Robert on 7/19/06

Rebecca you make a great point.

Repentance is demanded of all people. Do not procrastinate the day of your repentance is a great thought for all. If we have not turned away from every sin, we have not repented. The Lord said, "be ye therefore perfect..." Sin is short of perfection.

He that endures in righteousness is saved. He that endures in sin is a hellish example of the Christlike life.

Let no-one tell you that you are wrong to thing this way.

If all our sins are already forgiven, then why does it say in the bible for us to repent? what is there to repent of if our sins are already forgiven? A person can't ask forgiveness for sins they haven't comitted yet. My past sins are forgiven and under the blood, when I first got saved, but if I sin (I do) and I know it, I ask God to forgive me so I can be forgiven. He can't forgive someone unless they ask first.

Donna: Ever since my girlfriend told me that, I have never been the same when I read the crucifixion story. HE knew my sin and bore it willingly. What awesome love that is.
---Madison1101 on 7/18/06

Linda6563--What a great way to look at it..all our sins were future, once. And Madison, too! (I've had the same struggle you did.) Jesus knew EXACTLY why He was going to the cross..and he did it WILLINGLY..for you and me. It boggles the mind.
---Donna2277 on 7/18/06

Rebecca, when Jesus died, all of your sins were future...unless you are over 2,000 years old.
---Linda6563 on 7/17/06

Donna: I totally, totally believe as you just described. I am saved ONCE. My salvation, and all my sin, is under the blood of Christ, gone forever.

Once, I was struggling with forgiving myself of something and a friend of mine said, "Do you think that Jesus did NOT know about that sin when He died for you? He knew about it, and died for you anyway." What a love He has for us!!!!!!
---Madison1101 on 7/17/06

Excellent Donna. I lived that way for a long time too and it wasn't until I came to the end of myself that I met the Savior.
---Linda6563 on 7/17/06

Rebecca, the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross MUST be SUFFICIENT to pay for every sin we have or will commit. When I repent of my sins, trust in Jesus and His Sacrifice, I am saved. Good news. But you sound as if...ooops, the moment I sin again, as I surely will, I am as good as lost (being unforgiven)...until I recognize my sin and seek forgiveness of the Lord. Lost...saved...lost..saved. I could not live that way. What if I don't instantly recognize my sin? Then I'm in peril and don't even know it.
---Donna2277 on 7/17/06

Donna; do you believe that the future sins that we haven't commited yet, are already forgiven? If so then how can that be? If not then explain your answer better. I agree that he was crucified only once.
---Rebecca_D on 7/17/06

I disagree with Rebecca, somewhat. Jesus was only crucified once. If that was NOT ENOUGH to pay for all our sins, we are still lost. Once we know Him, we don't ask forgiveness so that Jesus can do something He hasn't done. But sin disrupts our fellowship with Him. We "hide" like Adam in the Garden instead of running to worship Jesus with a clear conscience.Isa 59:2 ".. your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid [his] face from you....
---Donna2277 on 7/7/06

I'm not sure what the 2nd part of your question is asking. For those that have come to know Jesus as Savior, their sins have been paid for by Jesus' sacrifice on the cross.

I agree with Jack. I did not grow up in church and basically dislike some of this vague Christian code-speak. I've come to understand it, sort of. But expressions like "plead the blood" are unbiblical, yet are widely used. Christians tend to become quite defensive if questioned about it.
---Donna2277 on 7/7/06

"Under the blood" means that Jesus Blood has covered sin and literally blotted it up. It is as if the Blood sucks the sin up into itself, then it (the sin) is no more.
---Helen_5378 on 7/7/06

God has said that there be no remission of sin without the shedding of are covered by the blood of jesus,it washes you white as snowyou may not br under it but you been washed by it washed CLEAN.

All the sin that each person has commited and has aked God to forgive them. God can't forgive future sins because people hasn't commited them yet. When a person first comes to God and ask him to forgive them of their sins, God will forgive all of the past sins that person has done, and everything he has done in the past is under the blood, anything after he gets saved, won't be covered unless asked for forgiveness.
