Who shall bring a charge against God’s elect? [It is] God who justifies. Who [is] he who condemns? [It is] Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us. Romans 8:33-34 (NKJV)
One of the gifts that Father God has given us in His Son Jesus Christ is the free gift of Righteousness. In Christ we are the Righteousness of God. We have right standing with Him.
God made Jesus who knew no sin to be sin for us that we might be made the Righteousness of God in Him. 2Corinthians 5:21. As God’s righteous ones we are free from guilt, condemnation, the sense of unworthiness and inferiority.
Jesus not only carried and put away our sins but also the condemnation that sin brings. His sacrifice perfectly cleansed us from sins and rid us of guilt.
Hebrews 1:3b. (AMPC) When He had by offering Himself accomplished our cleansing of sins and riddance of guilt, He sat down at the right hand of the divine Majesty on high.
When guilt leaves; so follows condemnation. The Most High Righteous Judge of the universe has already judged us righteous through the death and resurrection of His Son Jesus Christ.
Jesus was put to death for our sins. He took the punishment for all our trespasses. Then He was raised from the dead as proof and declaration that we’ve been justified, made right or not guilty. Romans 4:25.
Condemnation is the judgement that one is guilty and therefore must be punished. It brings fear, worry, discouragement and confusion.
When one leaves under this dark cloud of condemnation they become stressed, oppressed and paralyzed.
Condemnation kills and destroys. When a house or structure is said to be condemned it means it is declared unfit for use and given over to demolition or destruction.
Someone had a flower plant in her house and every time she would pass by it she noticed a certain branch on that plant she felt and thought didn’t fit and so didn’t belong. So she would say in her mind I don’t like that part, it doesn’t fit, it shouldn’t be there. Then one day after sometime she was shocked to find that part of the plant had withered and dried. She had condemned it to death even in her mind.
Never ever allow in your mind thoughts or imaginations of “I’m not worthy”, “I do not measure up”, “I’m not fit” “I’m not deserving” Even when you have made a mistake just acknowledge that it was wrong, walk away from it in the power of knowing that at the Cross of Christ God took care of that wrong. Where others are involved as in you offended or hurt them, ask for their forgiveness. But never for a moment give place to guilt and condemnation because it brings death.
Never ever say to yourself or others, never ever listen to any one that speaks words that condemn. That’s ministering death and destruction.
Always think, imagine and speak the language of Righteousness which is the life giving language of Christ.
