"Condemnation or Justification?"

”Condemnation or Justification?”


Therefore, as through one man’s offense judgment came to all men, resulting in condemnation, even so through one Man’s righteous act the free gift came to all men, resulting in justification of life.  For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so also by one Man’s obedience many will be made righteous.       Romans 5:18-19


The actions of ONE man’s DISOBEDIENCE to God and His will, brought JUDGMENT on ALL mankind, which, in turn, brought about CONDEMNATION, the process of declaring guilty of wrong-doing or convicting someone of committing a wrong-doing.  This offense then brought CONDEMNATION and JUDGEMENT upon ALL MANKIND.  And because of ONE man’s DISOBEDIENCE, MANY were made sinners, because the SIN-NATURE, entered into the HEART of mankind. And we NOW have what we have today, hatred, malice, deceit, depravity, disobedience and despair, just to name a few of the sins that plague mankind. 


However, God’s plan included ONE Man, Jesus, who through His RIGHTEOUS ACT as our SACRIFICAL Lamb, PAID the PRICE for our SINS, by His ONCE FOR ALL ACTION of dying, being buried in a tomb, and in three days was raised to LIFE. So mankind could have EVERLASTING LIFE in Heaven with Him and Father God. 


The whole situation is this:  By ONE man’s SIN or DISOBEDIENCE, A SINFUL NATURE entered the HEART of ALL mankind. Thanks to Adam!  And we NEED a SAVIOR, ONE who can take away our SINFUL NATURE, and make us RIGHTEOUS before the Almighty God.  Thanks to the Lord Jesus Christ.  Because of His ONE OBEDIENT ACT, we have HOPE and can RECEIVE His FREE GIFT of SALVATION and an ETERNITY in Heaven. 


Here is what you NEED to do if you have NOT given your HEART and LIFE to God. First, you MUST TURN AWAY FROM your OLD SINFUL LIFESTYLE, and TURN TO God, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART, CONFESSING your sins to Him and asking Him for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU, and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God.  Then ACCEPT His FREE GIFT of SALVATION, and receive JUSTIFICATION, NOT CONDEMNATION.   Do it NOW while you still can.  He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
