For if we go on deliberately and willingly sinning after once acquiring the knowledge of the Truth, there is no longer any sacrifice left to atone for [our] sins [no further offering to which to look forward].
–Amplified Bible, Classic Edition (AMPC)
and My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
They said to you, “In the last times there will be scoffers who will follow their own ungodly desires.”
Hope deferred makes the heart sick,
but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life.
