No Sin, No Condemnation, No Death
Author: Creflo Dollar
Many Believers in the Body of Christ today are dealing with sin-consciousness. However, God hates sin-consciousness because it causes people to inadvertently deny what Jesus has done for them. When we are focused on our sins, we are weighed down with guilt and condemnation. Negative emotions like depression, guilt, and condemnation are the beginning stages of death. However, Jesus died for us so that we would not have to succumb to sin consciousness, which causes death in various forms.
- Jesus came to this earth in a human body so that He could become the final sacrificial offering for our sins (Hebrews 2:14, 15, AMP; Hebrews 10:26).
- The Hebrews of the Old Testament times sacrificed animals to atone for their sin.
- However, they remained sin-conscious; they were aware of the fact that they were failing to obey the law (Hebrews 10:1, 2).
- The law, which originated from the Ten Commandments, caused the Hebrews to be conscience of their sins (Romans 3:20).
- The law was good, holy, and perfect because it came from God. Therefore, the fault was not with the law but with man’s inability to keep it.
- Before the law was instituted, sin was not imputed. People weren’t conscience of their sin (Romans 5:13, 14).
- However, after the law was given, the enemy began to use it to accuse and condemn mankind.
- Jesus’ sacrifice destroyed the power the enemy had over us.
- When we understand what Jesus has done, we will truly be free from bondage, which includes, fear, lack, poverty, and shame.
- “Blessed and happy and to be envied are those whose iniquities are forgiven and whose sins are covered up and completely buried” (Romans 4:7, AMP).
- “Blessed and happy and to be envied is the person whose sin the Lord will take no account nor reckon against him” (Romans 4:8, AMP).
- Sin has no more dominion over us because of God’s grace (undeserved favor) (1 Corinthians 15:10).
- We have access to His favor through faith (Romans 5:2).
- God has sworn that He will not be angry with us anymore (Isaiah 54:9).
- By nailing the law to the Cross, God disarmed all the principalities and powers arrayed against us (Colossians 2:14, 15, AMP).
- A guilty conscience makes us weak as Believers. A Believer who suffers from a weak (or guilty conscience) perishes (1 Corinthians 8:10, 11).
- However, through Jesus we are no longer under the law, but under grace (Romans 6:14).
- The glory that comes from grace has excelled the glory that comes from the Ten Commandments (2 Corinthians 3:7-10).
- If we do not want to continue in sin-consciousness, we must believe that we have been made the righteousness of God by faith (Romans 7:6-10).
- As Believers, we have right standing with God, and sin cannot take away our status.
- If we have faith in the righteousness of God, then our faith will act as a magnet and attract His blessings.
