Which is Gods provided way of repentance? Should I go to each and every person I wronged even before I got saved or is it through praying to god for forgiveness? Also, are believer boy girl relationships acceptable?

Boys and girls, being friends, is acceptable. They should conduct themselves as Believers in Christ. Repentance, is changing one's mind, and begins going the way of God. It is not enough to ask God to forgive you for the wrongs that you have done to persons. You have done wrong to persons of your past. You cannot go to all of them. But, as the Lord brings them to your mind, tell them how you have turned to Christ, and ask them to forgive you of the wrongs you have done to them.
“When I can see a woman on the street that's so low, stooped, immorals, or a man out of a barroom, smoking, and drinking, and cursing, and carrying on, and a few days time, he's a sainted godly person, making RESTITUTION for all of his wrong, that's--that shows that something has happened to that man. See? It speaks of another land. Perseverant 62-0729, Victoria BC, Canada We are indeed deem this a grand privilege to be with you fine people here on this island this week, from all--from Port Alberni and here at Victoria. And I was so grateful last night... My heart ached within me (that we only had three days to be here, one more day) when I seen what happened last evening, to see the entire group confess their wrongs, and come up and to make RESTITUTION. Now, that--that means that there is a great possibility of a great sweeping revival across this island here, that God could--could--would grant it. I believe that He will if we'll just believe Him, and have faith that He will--that He will do it. The Trumpet Gives An Uncertain Sound 63-0114, Phoenix AZ And, Father, we as His servants with His Spirit in us, every Christian here tonight, hold hisself before the sinner; God, be merciful to them. We cry for the sick and the needy, for those precious hands, some of them old, and some young, and some middle-aged, raising their hands. You know all about that, Lord. We pray that You'll answer according to Your riches in glory. May there be many tonight, Lord, go away from here that come in that's sick, may they go away well, healed: just something takes place. They can't even explain it, but they know that they're well. May those who are wayward go away justified, Lord, knowing that they've come back and picked up Christ where they left Him at. May they go, make RESTITUTION. Grant, Lord, that those who have never come will find that precious freedom of being free, turned out of the cage, no more bound by the things of the world and the cares of this life, but's been made free in Christ. Grant it, Father. Bless all we have need of now, and bless Thy Word and Thy servant, and we'll give Thee praise. In Jesus' Name we ask it. Amen.” [Jesus Christ The Same Yesterday, Today, and Forever, Dawnson CreekBC, Canada 61-0519]

“For Sunday services: If a woman commits a wrong with a... (Now, wait a minute; I'd better read this first to myself. You see? [Brother Branham reads the question to himself "... with a married man, repents and makes it right according to...?... needs of wife and man involved in...?...--Ed.] All right. This is all right.) If a woman commits a wrong with a--a married man, repents and makes it right with her husband according to the Scriptures, does she need to go to the wife of the man involved, even if this wife doesn't know anything of it; or is it the man's duty to tell her first; or does she need to be hurt at all? How far can we go with this RESTITUTION when it is over and done, and when friendship is involved? Well, my dear sister, there's only one thing that you have done which is right. You was involved, I guess, or somebody that you know of was involved, in a wrong act, that you taken another woman's companion and had a social act. And when you did, there you fell from your grace. Then you repented, and you could not repent until you go back to this man and make it right. You've got to take your husband and go to that man, which you did. And that was the thing you should've done; that's Scripture--you should've done. Exodus 22:5. If a man shall cause a field or vineyard to be eaten, and shall put in his beast, and shall feed in another man's field; of the best of his own field, and of the best of his own vineyard, shall he make RESTITUTION. Exodus 22:12. And if it be stolen from him, he shall make RESTITUTION unto the owner thereof.” [Questions And Answers Jeffersonville, IN 64-0823e]

Before finding out about the Message, a sister was living in the world, however she met a brother from the message and they got married. When her husband asked her about her life before their marriage, she was not truthful, and neglected to tell him certain things. However, later after they got married, she told him most of the things of her past but still left out certain things. The fact that she has not yet told him haunts her every second of every day. What should I advise this sister? She wants to know if God will ever forgive her if she asks Him to, without her having to tell her husband.

“Question, “Brother Bill, what is the difference between fornications and adultery, Matthew 19:9?” Jesus said in Matthew 19:9, "Whosoever putteth away his wife and marries another, except it be for the cause of fornications, commits adultery." The difference between fornications and adultery, the word could be applied either way. But to make it clear what he was talking of there, that--a woman that's unmarried cannot commit adultery, because she has no husband to commit adultery against. It's uncleanliness for her. She has to confess that to her husband before they are married if she's did that. If not and her husband finds it out later, he has a right to put her away, because she took a false vow. For the Bible said, "Be it well..." or ritual says. "Be it well known to you (I have it in mine) if any couples are joined otherwise than God's Word does allow, their marriage is not lawful. I will require and will charge you both as you'll surely answer in the day of judgment when the secrets of all hearts shall be disclosed, if either of you know any impediment why you should not be lawful joined together, do you now confess it." There you are. See? So fornication is what a girl, when she lives unclean, that's fornication, 'cause she has no husband. But when she's married, and then when she lives like that, she commits adultery against her husband.” [Questions And Answers Jeffersonville, IN 59-0628E]

“Into this holy state these two persons present come to be joined. If there's anyone here that can show a just cause why they should not be lawfully joined together in this holy matrimony, do you now speak, or from hereafter, forever hold your peace. I will require and will charge you both, as you'll surely answer at the day of the judgment when the secrets of all hearts shall be disclosed, if there's either of you that know any impediment why you should not be lawful joined together in this holy matrimony, do you now confess it, for be it assured unto you that any couples that are joined otherwise than God's Word doth allow, their marriage is not lawful.” [Wedding Ceremony Shreveport, LA 63-1201W]

I will require and will charge you both, as you'll surely answer at the day of judgment when the secrets of all hearts shall be disclosed, that if either of you know any impediment why you should not be lawful joined together in this matrimony, do you now confess it; for be it assured unto you that any couple that are joined otherwise than God's Word doth allow, their marriage is not lawful. But duly believing that you have considered this solemn obligation that you're about to assume, then that you have prepared to enter upon the same, reverently, discreetfully, soberly, and in the fear of God, I shall propose to you the marriage covenant. You will declare the same as you join your right hands together.” [Wedding Ceremony Jeffersonville, IN 65-0220W]

“One, I want to name three things here that she must not get away from. Now, I'm speaking, keep the church in mind while I'm speaking this to the natural woman, as Paul is here, in the 7th chapter of Romans. She has a sacred trust of virtue committed to her by her Lord: a certain virtue. Nothing else holds it but a woman. That's right. That's committed to her by God. She must not defile that virtue. If she even does something wrong, she must confess that to her husband before he takes her; and make it right. Just the same as the church that was married to the law has to come also before Christ, before the second marriage; she has to confess that. If she doesn't and she lives with her husband for ten years and then confesses it, he has a right to put her away and marry another woman. That's the Scripture. Fornication is unclean living. "Joseph, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife, for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost." He was minded to put her away privately, see, after he'd already engaged to her. When you are engaged to her, as far as God's concerned, you're married to her.” [Invisible Union Of The Bride Shreveport, LA 65-1125]
