Believe it or not, God sees your sins.

Many today say: “God doesn’t see my sins; all He sees is Jesus. God sees me as perfect.”

They deceive themselves!


Rev 3:1 I know thy works, that thou hast a name that thou livest, and art dead.
2  Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die: for I have not found thy works perfect before God.

Pro 15:3  The eyes of the LORD are in every place, beholding the evil and the good.

Psa 69:5  O God, You know my foolishness; and my sins are not hidden from You.


Hos 7:2  And they consider not in their hearts that I remember all their wickedness: now their own doings are before my face, and have beset them about.


Hos 7:2  (GNB)  It never enters their heads that I remember all thier evil; and I cannot avoid seeing their sins which surround them.

Hos 7:2  (CEV)  No one realizes that I have seen their sins surround them like a flood.


Jer 16:17  For mine eyes are upon all their ways: they are not hid from my face, neither is their iniquity hid from mine eyes.

Heb 4:13  Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.

Someone has lied to people, telling them that God doesn’t see their sins. Even Billy Graham said: “God doesn’t see Billy Graham, He only sees Jesus”. God saw Davids and Jonah’s sins, didn’t He? Does God respect Graham more than David or Jonah? Didn’t God see Peter deny Jesus three times?  Didn’t God see Moses’ sin at the waters of strife and not allow him to enter the promised land because of it? (;%20Deut%2032:48-52&version=KJV ).  Adam was the “son of God”, but God saw his and Eve’s sin. God saw Peter’s sin, and those who followed his hypocrisy at Antioch, when Paul saw that he “walked not uprightly according to the gospel” in Gal 2. Jesus saw the sins of the churches, and told them “I know your works” in Rev 2 & 3. He rebuked them and warned them what He would do if they would not repent.


Pro 5:21  For the ways of man are before the eyes of the LORD, and he ponders all his goings.

Psalm 11:4  The LORD is in his holy temple, the LORD’S throne is in heaven: his eyes behold, his eyelids try, the children of men.
5  The LORD tries the righteous: but the wicked and him that loves violence his soul hates.

How can God hate sin if He can’t see it?

Jeremiah 7:8  Behold, you trust in lying words, that cannot profit.
9  Will you steal, murder, and commit adultery, and swear falsely, and burn incense unto Satan, and walk after other gods whom you know not;
10  And come and stand before me in this house, which is called by my name, and say, “We are delivered (made safe; 1Thes 5:3) to do all these abominations (to sin against God)”?
11 The house that is called by my name has become a den of thieves, but I’ve seen every evil thing you’ve done.
12  But go now unto my place which was in Shiloh, where I set my name at the first, and see what I did to it for the wickedness of my people Israel.

How could God have judged Shiloh if He couldn’t see their wickedness?

1Jn 5:16  If you see a believer commit a sin that does not lead to death, you should pray to God, who will give that person life. This applies (only) to those whose sins do not lead to death. But there is sin which leads to death, and I do not say that you should pray to God about that.

Can men see sins that God can’t see? Who has the greater ability to see sins…men, or God?

Rev 2:2  I know your works, and your labor, and your patience, and how you cannot bear them who are evil (because you see and hate their sins!) : and you have tried them who say they are apostles, but who are not, and you have found them to be liars:

We see here that Jesus commends this church for not tolerating those who are evil, and for TESTING those who claim to be apostles, and finding them to be liars, right? THEY saw some were lying, didn’t they?  How is it then, that Jesus Himself can’t see the sins of any soul who once had a true split second of faith? Some say that God can’t see the sins of those He once forgave; of  those who failed to forgive others, or the sins of those who HAD been given a talent to be faithful with, but who chose to bury it in the earth, and that He can’t see the sins of those who were once on fire; whose works once pleased the Lord, but who lost their first love and became lukewarm.  But if God couldn’t see David’s sins, or Moses’, or Jonah’s, or Peter’s, or yours, or mine…  then how could He ever judge the world and his people like scripture says He will? (2Cor 5:10)


Rev 2:3  And you have borne, and had patience, and for my name’s sake have labored, and have not fainted.
4  But this is what I have against you: you have left your first love.
5  Remember therefore from where you are fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto you quickly, and will remove your candlestick out of his place, unless you repent.
6  But you still have this good thing: you hate the deeds of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate.
7  He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches; To him that overcomes will I give to eat of the tree of life

Rev 2:13  I know your works: you hold fast my name, and haven’t denied my faith, even when Antipas was with you: my faithful martyr who was slain,
14  But I have a few things against you, because you have them there that hold the doctrine of Balaam, whose teaching casts a stumbling block before My people, to eat things sacrificed unto idols, and to commit fornication.
15  You also have them there that hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitans, which thing I hate.
16  Repent; or else I will come to you quickly, and will fight against them with the sword of my mouth.
17  He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says unto the churches…


Still think your performance doesn’t matter?

Still  think God doesn’t see your sins?


Rev 2:20  Notwithstanding I have a few things against you, (Because He SAW their sins!) because you allow that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols.


If God can’t see the sins of the saved, then what would it matter if some false prophetess taught believers to sin? Their sins would be irrelevant to God. He certainly wouldn’t rebuke them for a sin He couldn’t see! If God can’t see sin, then there can be no judgment against sin. If God loses His ability to see the sins of a person once that person is saved, then there would be no way a person could lose salvation.  So can you see that “God doesn’t see your sins” is the root of it’s sister doctrine-of-devils? ~  the one that seduces and convinces the naïve that they will not be judged for any sin they commit after the moment they say “the sinner’s prayer”, or really do get saved…therefore they MUST be OSAS (Once Saved Always Saved)! Do you now see that to believe ‘God can’t see your sins’ is fundamental to OSAS?  OSAS is a lie built on that very lie, and is identical to “Ye shall not surely die”, the first lie of satan!


Eze 13:2  Son of man, prophesy against the prophets of Israel that prophesy, and say thou unto them that prophesy out of their own hearts, Hear ye the word of the LORD;
3  Thus saith the Lord GOD; Woe unto the foolish prophets, that follow their own spirit, and have seen nothing!
6  They have seen vanity and lying divination, saying, The LORD saith: and the LORD hath not sent them…
7  Have ye not seen a vain vision, and have ye not spoken a lying divination, whereas ye say, The LORD saith it; albeit I have not spoken?
8  Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Because ye have spoken vanity, and seen lies, therefore, behold, I am against you, saith the Lord GOD.
9  And mine hand shall be upon the prophets that see vanity, and that divine lies: they shall not be in the assembly of my people, neither shall they be written in the writing of the house of Israel…
10  Because, even because they have seduced my people, saying, “Peace!” (“Peace and safety!” 1Thes 5:3); and there was no peace; and one built up a wall, and, lo, others daubed it with untempered morter:
11  Say unto them which daub it with untempered morter, that it shall fall: there shall be an overflowing shower; and ye, O great hailstones, shall fall; and a stormy wind shall rend it.
12  Lo, when the wall is fallen, shall it not be said unto you, Where is the daubing wherewith ye have daubed it?
13  Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; I will even rend it with a stormy wind in my fury; and there shall be an overflowing shower in mine anger, and great hailstones in my fury to consume it.
14  So will I break down the wall that ye have daubed with untempered morter, and bring it down to the ground, so that the foundation thereof shall be discovered, and it shall fall, and ye shall be consumed in the midst thereof: and ye shall know that I am the LORD.
15  Thus will I accomplish my wrath upon the wall, and upon them that have daubed it with untempered morter, and will say unto you, The wall is no more, neither they that daubed it;
16  To wit, the prophets of Israel which prophesy concerning Jerusalem, and which see visions of peace for her, and there is no peace, saith the Lord GOD.

Rev 2:21  And I gave (Jezebel) space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not.


God saw that this person in the church did not repent of fornication! Since He gave her a time to repent, we know God loved her! As many as He loves, He rebukes and chastens. So don’t be fooled by those who claim  “She was never saved to begin with”, or by those who say you CAN’T repent; you’re totally depraved!


Jer 3:1  They say, If a man put away his wife, and she go from him, and become another man’s, shall he return unto her again? shall not that land be greatly polluted? but thou hast played the harlot with many lovers; yet return again to me, saith the LORD.


God SAW it!


Rev 2:22  Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds.


Jesus is warning BELIEVERS.  If God can’t see the sins of believers, then how could He cast them into great tribulation if they refuse to repent?


Rev 2:23  And I will kill her children with death(a); and all the churches shall know that I am he which searches the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works.


If God can’t see the sins of those in the church, how is it He will kill with death those who follow false teachers? If He can’t see our sins, how could He search and know our hearts? And how could He give unto everyone according to their works if He can’t see anything but Jesus?


Isa 66:18  For I know their works and their thoughts: it shall come, that I will gather all nations and tongues; and they shall come, and see my glory.


This is a reference to when Jesus said He would gather all nations and separate the sheep from the goats and judge them all according to what they did. Matt 25:32.


1Jn 5:16  If any man see his brother sin a sin which is not unto death, he shall ask, and he shall give him life for them that sin not unto death. There is a sin unto death: I do not say that he shall pray for it.

Jas 5:19  Brethren, if any of you do err from the truth, and one convert him;
20  Let him know, that he which converts that sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins.


If a BELIEVER errs from the truth (leaves his first love; gets deceived), he loses his savor and becomes worthless salt, good for nothing but to be cast out. God then sees him a sinner on the broad way to destruction: the road to DEATH. IF he repents, he will live; IF he hardens his heart and receives no reproof, he dies IN SIN (and cannot go where Jesus went. John 8:21)


John 8:21  Then said Jesus again unto them, I go my way, and ye shall seek me, (and not find Me) and shall die in your sins: whither I go, ye cannot come.*(scroll down to Prov 1:28)
24 I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins.
John 3:18 He that believeth not in condemned already


Grace and the Holy Spirit are NOT “irresistible”. A believer may cease to believe, and err from the one true faith. He may go astray; depart from the faith; do despite to the spirit of grace by which he was sanctified; fail to overcome; give ear to seducing spirits and doctrines of devils; believe another Jesus, another gospel, and fall away to another spirit. If he does this, he has yielded himself to the opposite of “believing” in Jesus. It is unbelief. (It is to commit adultery against God.) He no longer believes the TRUTH, the WORD OF GOD; he cannot go to heaven where Jesus went, and he will die in his sins. God sees the wicked works of every soul who leaves his first love and forsakes Him for a lie. If we deny Him He will also deny us (2Tim 2:12); even if we don’t believe He will (v 13). It’s the same as if we divorced Him. Don’t believe the lie that you are free to divorce and forsake God, and He will still “never leave or forsake you”. If you forsake Him, He will forsake you.


Pro 1:20  Wisdom cries without; she utters her voice in the streets:
21  She cries in the chief place of concourse, in the openings of the gates: in the city she utters her words, saying,
22  How long, ye simple ones, will ye love simplicity? and the scorners delight in their scorning, and fools hate knowledge?
23  Turn you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will make known my words unto you.
24  Because I have called, and ye refused; I have stretched out my hand, and no man regarded;
25  But ye have set at naught all my counsel, and would none of my reproof:
26  I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh;
27  When your fear cometh as desolation, and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon you.
28  Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me:*(scroll down to Jer 14:12)
29  For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the LORD:
30  They would none of my counsel: they despised all my reproof.
31  Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices.
32  For the turning away of the simple shall slay them, and the prosperity of fools shall destroy them.
33  But whoso hearkens unto me shall dwell safely, and shall be quiet from fear of evil.

Jer 14:10  Thus saith the LORD unto this people (Israel), Thus have they loved to wander, they have not refrained their feet, therefore the LORD doth not accept them; he will now remember their iniquity, and visit their sins.
11  Then said the LORD unto me, Pray not for this people for their good.
*12  When they fast, I will not hear their cry; and when they offer burnt offering and an oblation, I will not accept them: but I will consume them by the sword, and by the famine, and by the pestilence.

1Sa 16:7  But the LORD said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for the LORD sees not as man sees; for man looks on the outward appearance, but the LORD looks on the heart.

Luke 16:15  And He said to them, You are those who justify yourselves before men, but God knows your hearts. For that which is highly esteemed among men is but an abomination in the sight of God.


The strong oaks of Bashan (like Billy Graham, Kenneth Copeland, Pat Robertson, Jimmy Swaggart, and 846 others; [1Kings 18:19]) may be esteemed mighty for God, while actually being Balaams and Jezebels in God’s eyes.


Ezek 8:3  … Then in my vision the LORD’s Spirit lifted me into the sky and carried me to Jerusalem. The Spirit took me to the north gate of the temple’s inner courtyard, where there was an idol that disgusted the LORD and made him furious and jealous.
4  Then I saw the brightness of the glory of the God of Israel, just as I had seen it near the Chebar River.
5  God said to me, “Ezekiel, son of man, look north.” And when I did, I saw that disgusting idol by the altar near the gate.
6  God then said, “Do you see the terrible sins of the people of Israel? Their sins are making my holy temple unfit as a place to worship me.  you will see even worse things than this.”
7  And he brought me to the door of the court; and when I looked, behold a hole in the wall.
8  Then said he unto me, Son of man, dig now in the wall: and when I had digged in the wall, behold a door.
9  And he said unto me, Go in, and behold the wicked abominations that they do here.
10  So I went in and saw; and behold every form of creeping things, and abominable beasts, and all the idols of the house of Israel, pourtrayed upon the wall round about.
11  And there stood before them seventy men of the ancients of the house of Israel, and in the midst of them stood Jaazaniah the son of Shaphan, with every man his censer in his hand; and a thick cloud of incense went up.
12  Then said he unto me, Son of man, hast thou seen what the ancients of the house of Israel do in the dark, every man in the chambers of his imagery? for they say, The LORD seeth us not; the LORD hath forsaken the earth.
13  He said also unto me, Turn thee yet again, and thou shalt see greater abominations that they do.
14  Then he brought me to the door of the gate of the LORD’S house which was toward the north; and, behold, there sat women weeping for Tammuz.
Eze 8:15  Then said he unto me, Hast thou seen this, O son of man? turn thee yet again, and thou shalt see greater abominations than these.
16  And he brought me into the inner court of the LORD’S house, and, behold, at the door of the temple of the LORD, between the porch and the altar, were about five and twenty men, with their backs toward the temple of the LORD, and their faces toward the east; and they worshipped the sun toward the east.
17  Then he said unto me, Hast thou seen this, O son of man? Is it a light thing to the house of Judah that they commit the abominations which they commit here? for they have filled the land with violence, and have returned to provoke me to anger: and, lo, they put the branch to their nose.
18  Therefore will I also deal in fury: mine eye shall not spare, neither will I have pity: and though they cry in mine ears with a loud voice, yet will I not hear them.


Still think God doesn’t see your sins?



  1. Of course God can see our sins! John 14:23 Jesus replied, ‘Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them. 24 Anyone who does not love me will not obey my teaching. These words you hear are not my own; they belong to the Father who sent me.’ How can the Father judge if a person is or isn’t obeying the Lord Jesus if he can’t see them. AND how can you be saved if you are not 100% in love with the Lord Jesus as shown by your obedience to his teachings and commands?

  3. How can God see my sins when the blood of Jesus cleanses me from all sin for there is now no condemnation brother smashing idols it is the very goodness of God that leads us to repentance that is a changing in the way we think

    • Allow me to finish the verse for you, rick: Rom 8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are IN Christ Jesus, WHO walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
      Only IF you aren’t walking after the flesh, but after God’s spirit, obeying Him instead of lusts and pride, THEN there is no more condemnation. Jesus’ death is not a LICENCE TO SIN, as many wrongly suppose. remember Lot’s wife, Jesus said. And if we won’t forgive others their trespasses, neither will God forgive us ours.

    • You asked “how can God see?”

      Is God blind? The ancients in Israel were foolish enough to think God didn’t see their sins:

      Eze 8:12 Then said he unto me, Son of man, hast thou seen what the ancients of the house of Israel do in the dark, every man in the chambers of his imagery? for they say, The LORD seeth us not; the LORD hath forsaken the earth.
      Eze 9:9 Then said he unto me, The iniquity of the house of Israel and Judah is exceeding great, and the land is full of blood, and the city full of perverseness: for they say, The LORD hath forsaken the earth, and the LORD seeth not.

    • i did a bible study about God sees our sins, which contains many verses that prove He does. Check it out and tell me if I took anything “out of context”, ok rick?

  4. Hey friend. You are way out of context. You can teach it all the way you want it. But i can see you are doing it in the wrong context. But appreciate it that we have this kind of link that we can openly discuss on something.

    • many attempt to reprove others with “you are taking things out of context”, but I never see them offer any context that disproves what they disagree with. I find such “correction” quite empty and vain.

  5. Praise the Lord, Jane. I use facebook too. Alan Ray there.

  6. Excellent exhortation!!!
