NO CONDEMNATION TO THOSE IN CHRIST
Jesse M. Hendley
In Romans 8:1 today we are taking up God's Plan-THE
PLAN-of Salvation! We found out it is for everybody.
We found out it is neither by feelings nor by some
tremendous experience. It is by faith. Romans 5:1 told
us that by simple faith we are justified, looking only
to Jesus, depending wholly on Jesus, we have peace
with God. We found out that on Calvary's Cross (and we
drew a cross and a circle around that cross) that in
those six hours on Calvary our Lord Jesus Christ
settled the sin-question and took the sins of our
lives and paid for them. Now the sin-question cannot
be justly brought up against any of us who have put
our faith in Him. In fact, it will NEVER be brought up
against us. We have God's Word for it. "Being
justified BY FAITH we have peace with God, through our
Lord Jesus Christ."
Let us take up another tremendous thought, Romans 8:1.
"There is therefore now no condemnation to them that
are in Christ Jesus." Sometimes you hear preachers
preach about the judgment Day and Christians become
terrified. Why? Because they have never seen clearly
that no sin can be brought up for them. There isn't
any "judgment" day for the Christian, for the child of
God. It is entirely erroneous to talk about a child of
God standing before the Great White Throne Judgment of
God, as we read in Revelation. The person who puts his
faith in Jesus will never be judged, for his judgment
is past---his judgment was laid upon Jesus at Calvary.
His judgment is PAST. John 5:24, "Verily, verily, I
say unto you, He that heareth My Word and believeth on
Him that sent Me, hath everlasting life, and shall NOT
come into JUDGMENT." (Translated "condemnation" here,
but the Revised Version is accurate; the word is
JUDGMENT.) I want you to underscore that expression,
SHALL NOT COME INTO JUDGMENT. The child of God SHALL
NEVER COME INTO JUDG ...
