Topic: No More Condemnation [Saturday July 29, 2017]
“There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.” Romans 8:1 (KJV)
I come to encourage you today to keep walking boldly with your shoulders raised high because there is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus. Never allow an event that went wrong somewhere along the line to define your life, because all your sins past, present and future have been forgiven. For as long as you do not know this, the devil will continue to accuse and condemn you. The devil lies to you that God is about to drop a hammer on your head for every mistake you make and as a result, your boldness before God disappears and you live in constant fear and condemnation.
Contrary to popular and erroneous religious views, fear does not produce a New Creation but faith in the Lord does. Over the years, there has been the mistaken idea that God’s wrath and judgment is on anyone who falls short of His righteous requirement. To fully understand and apply the Bible, you must know the dispensational requirements. God deals with each dispensation differently. You cannot apply His dealings with those under the law to those under grace. God deals with the new creation under grace so you cannot apply the law to them. The new creation enjoys the grace of God.
Stop walking around with your face down because of guilt. There is so much God has in stock for you that the devil wants you to lose as a result of ignorance. Arise today and enforce the devil’s defeat. You have nothing to fear because you have the victory.
The challenges you saw yesterday you will see no more forever. When God delivers, He delivers totally. You are free. You have been discharged, acquitted, case closed and no appeal.
