"Condemnation Because of Disobedience, Justification Because of Obedience"

“Condemnation Because of Disobedience, Justification Because of Obedience”


Consequently, just as one trespass resulted in condemnation for all people, so also one righteous act resulted in justification and life for all people.   For just as through the disobedience of the one man the many were made sinners, so also through the obedience of the one man the many will be made righteous.       Romans 5:18-19


DISOBEDIENCE entered the HEART of the one man Adam, and SIN was born.  Because of that FIRST ACT of DISOBEDIENCE, mankind is born with a SIN NATURE, or the desire to sin.  And along with DISOBEDIENCE against God and His laws, mankind comes under CONDEMNATION, and is DOOMED to an ETERNITY in Hell.  Mankind is therefore in a state of WRETCHEDNESS, and DESPAIR, without HOPE.


But because of God’s ABUNDANT provision of GRACE and His gift of RIGHTEOUSNESS, which is provided through the OBEDIENCE of the One Man, Jesus Christ, who went to an old rugged cross and gave up His life, in order for mankind to receive JUSTIFICATION and RIGHTEOUSNESS.  Jesus SACRIFICED His LIFE so the ones, who will come to God with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART might receive His gift of SALVATION, and be BLESSED with the HOPE of an ETERNITY in Heaven.


In order to be RELEASED from the CONDEMNATION and brought to JUSTIFICATION, you MUST come from DISOBEDIENCE to OBEDIENCE to God and His laws.  You MUST TURN AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle, and TURN TO God with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART.  Then you MUST CONFESS your sins to Him, and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS.  You MUST BELIEVE, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU, and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God.  Then you MUST ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and receive JUSTIFICATION and RIGHTEOUSNESS along with your ETERNAL HOME, HEAVEN.   Do this NOW, while you still can.  He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
