Does unconscious unconfessed sin affect our fellowship with God?

Confess and forsake and you obtain mercy because if you cover them you will not prosper (prov 28:13). This refers to the daily infractions we commit. If it meant original sin, then it would be sin in singular. The original sin that brought us a nature of death is forgiven once we believe with our hearts and confess with our mouths that God raised him from the dead (Rom 10:9-10). That runs contrary to the belief that once Jesus died, he forgave all sins. Not at all! You may have a thousand toothbrushes and ten tons of Colgate but if you do not use them to brush your teeth, your teeth will not be cleaned.
However, since we have an evil nature now, we confess each time we sin and we are forgiven. If you have the Holy Spirit in you, He will remind you of all sins. The comforter will teach and remind you of sins (Jn 14:26). When the Holy Spirit comes, He will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment (Jn 16:8).
Consequently, there is no way anyone will forget their sin to incur the wrath of God. Therefore, we must stay in the spirit so that our spirits can in turn communicate with the Spirit of God.
Nonetheless, if after the Holy Spirit has reminded us and we refuse to confess or confess and refuse to forsake, then we invite the wrath of God for the punishment of that sin.
Until then, our sins will withhold good things from us (Jer 5:25).
