“There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit,” Romans 8:1.
Heaven is weary of hearing the western believer misusing Romans 8:1. Thousands a times a day, whenever they choose to walk in disobedience, they numb the pain of conviction by calling it condemnation and misuse this verse.
They put any type of correction under the category of condemnation. Now here is the shocker that should shake western church goers to the core! Most are totally oblivious to the two words “in Christ”. That’s right “in Me”. Only if you are in Me, are you exempt from condemnation.
If you are disobedient to My commands, you are not in Me. If you are in Me you are a new creation and your old disobedient self is passed away! 2 Corinthians 5:17.
Many who use this cop out verse haven’t even followed My first command to be baptized in water. So if you opted out of being baptized into My death, it is not possible for you to rise with Me to walk in newness of life! Romans 6:2-4 KJV.
Again, you were directed by Me to “go and make disciples in all the nations, baptizing them into the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,” but you spend years going to meetings and talk about these bible verses, and many of you haven’t even been baptized yet yourselves. What newborns are you discipling? Matthew 28:19 AMP.
I cannot say it any planer than, “If you really love Me, you will keep (obey) My commands,” John 14:15 AMP.
Yes, there is condemnation to those walk in disobedience because they are not in Me. Colossians 3:6 KJV.
Do not attempt to make yourself feel saved by saying, a loving God would not send anyone to hell. My Father sends no one to hell except satan and his demons. He does not even condemn you, and I certainly did not come into the world to condemn it!
The fact is; if you choose to walk in disobedience you are not a believer and remember, he that does not believer is condemned already, because he hath not believed (obeyed) in the name of the only begotten Son of God,” John 3:17-18.
Thousands have attended a service and said a little prayer and been told they were saved, then they are instructed, every time you feel bad for something you did, defend yourself with Romans 8:1 and go about your merry way.
Let Me make something perfectly clear, If you are really saved, you are definitely going to be disciplined by your loving Heavenly Father, and no matter what you call it, it doesn’t feel good, Hebrews 12:11.
Have you forgotten the exhortation which speaks to you as unto children, saying, My son, despise not the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when you are rebuked by Him: 6 For whom He loves He chastens, and spanks every son whom He receiveth. 7 If you endure strong correction, Father is only dealing with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the Father does not chasten? 8 But if you be without the chastisement, that every son gets from time to time, then you are simply bastards, and not sons,” Hebrews 12:5-8.
If you need correction for disobeying, take it like man. Do not misuse, Romans 8:1 and think you are going to get away with walking in disobedience, Matthew 22:11-1.
My Father is love, and He loves everyone in heaven and earth and hell!
