Condemnation means to judge a person as guilty and liable for punishment. Condemnation is the sentence or judgment for the guilty, or the punishment for sin.
As a feeling condemnation is to judge something as bad so we feel guilty, wrong, or that we are to blame for something. But becuase the blood of Christ has already cleansed us, we are now free from the power of guilt! When we apply this truth to our life we will be free to feel good about ourselves, and free to declare the truth that no matter what we have done we are righteous, loved, accepted and approved in the eyes of God.
The devil wants you to feel condemned and trapped in the pain of your past. But there is no root to those feelings, because as far as Christ is concerned your past is gone. Therefore, in Christ, condemnation should no longer exist.
Romans 8:1-2 Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit of Life set me free from the law of sin and death.
John 3:18 He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
John 5:24 Most assuredly, I say to you, he who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life.
Annihilate any condemnation by focusing on the truth of what Christ has done for you. Death and life are in the power of your mouth (Prov 18:21), so declare the truth of God’s Word over your life in this area and begin to experience freedom once and for all from condemnation. As a believer, it shouldn’t even be in our vocabulary!
Col 1:13-14 (NKJV) He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love, in whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins.
When you understand who you are in Christ, and know that you have been forgiven, you will realise that you no longer need to struggle with anything that happened in your past because Satan’s power and hold over you has already been broken
John 8:36 So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.
Therefore the next time Satan comes to accuse you of your past, or torments you with feelings of guilt, shame or condemnation, remind yourself of the truth that you have been set free and then declare that truth by saying out aloud ‘NOT GUILTY!’
God says you are worthy to receive; because you are the righteousness of God! He doesn’t see your faults, your past or shortcomings. He only sees His precious son in you. And when you gain the revelation of this truth you will discover that it will change the way that you see and relate to Him. Releasing the fullness of what God has freely provided for you will then be a whole lot easier!
