2 Blessed ['esher] is the man ['adam] unto whom the LORD [Yahovah]
imputeth [chashab] not iniquity [`avon], and in whose spirit [ruwach] there is no guile [ramiyah]. KJV-Interlinear
blessed is the man to whom the Lord does not impute iniquity, And in whose
spirit there is no deceit! NASB
All debts of sin were settled at the Cross. Therefore, God does not impute them again, to the individual. There is no double jeopardy, no re-trying of guilt as far as the person is concerned.
Not imputed, means not assigned again. The person is not charged again with the same crime, as it were.
All sins were paid for at the Cross. None were left out. None were overlooked. None were missed.
There is no sin that can be committed by a person that re-establishes guilt against that person, or anyone.
There is only one unpardonable decision, which is in itself not a sin, and that violation is rejection of Christ. And when a person rejects Christ throughout their entire life, then God is gracious and allows them to retain that decision. That means they are not going to be with God, ever. The alternative is the Lake of Fire, or a place that is absent of Gods mercy and grace and blessing and provision and power. They will be on their own, alone, powerless, empty of any and all contacts of every type. A situation much, much worse that solitary confinement.
When Christ paid the price for sin, He purchased our freedom and paid all our debts with regard to sin and death. We were redeemed.
He covered our filth, burying it deep into non-existence.
He set us apart from all the filth of the world, making our corruption, incorruptible.
He obliterated forever, all evidence and existence of sin as though it never existed.
And finally, all the deceit, all of the self-deception, all of the fraud, delusion, and pretense are gone. And this opens up the door for pardon, for confession and therefore forgiveness.
The facts remain. You are a sinner and you commit sins. Those facts did not change. But God can establish a criteria whereby, His having paid for the debt, allows Him to pardon us and therefore forgive us.
As human beings, we have debts, in the form of sin. This limits us greatly.
But Christ took all of those debt bills which we have and could never pay, and paid them off. We are no longer in debt. Who tries to pay a debt again after it has already been paid in full? Only a fool.
Our crossing the line, our disobedience, our refusal to follow instructions, our filthy pattern of life, all of these things that relate to sin, are all paid off, in full and no longer apply to us.
There is however, one thing which was not paid at the Cross, and that was human good, or the idea of mans efforts to do the same thing that God did.
And when unbelievers reject Christ, they adopt a belief that they can get to heaven on their own and make themselves equal with God. This, human works, is the ultimate basis for their eternal condemnation. Their sins too, were paid, but they refuse to recognize that payment. And this is the quintessence of stubborn stupidity.
