Three Most Common Misconceptions About God, God Condemns You

We condemn ourselves.


God is NOT an old bearded man, sitting on a throne, watching your every move, just waiting for you to screw up so He can send you to Hell. God condemns NO ONE, Save the Devil and his followers. The other Fallen Angels. This is the whole reason Hell was even created..
"Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels" {Matthew 25:41}
Wait, SEE!! He just condemned them on the left.. SEE!! Actually, no. Read it in context and you will see that God is concerned with WHAT you actually DO to help and to serve others. Not Religion. Not dead Faith. Not selfishness, but selflessness. Are you in it for you? Or are you in it for God? He said "depart from me you cursed." He did not say, I curse you.

Then notice this. "prepared for the devil and his angels" Hell was not created for, nor was it even intended for, us. Mankind. It was a horrible place that God created for the Devil and the Angels that followed him. 

Also notice this in Romans 8
"What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us? He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?

Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God's elect? It is God that justifieth. Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us."
{Romans 8:31-34}
Who is it that Justifies us? God? Who is it that Condemns us? God,,,,,, uh no. Read that again..
"Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us."
Notice it does NOT say, Who Condemns? God. It says Who Condemns? No one. Christ came and Died for us. He makes intercession for us. He paid the price so that we do not have to. All we have to do is accept Him. That's is it. John 3 makes it pretty clear also. Come on, you know what it says..
"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved."
Keep going...
"He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.

For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God."
{John 3:16-21}
"He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already," Why? "because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God." So you see, God makes it simple. Accept Jesus and Live. Reject Jesus and die. There is no other way.

Jesus IS a Blessing and a Curse. The Corner Stone, and the Stumbling Block. The Cross is the Power of God, and Foolishness to the World. Jesus is the key to the Gates of Heaven. Without Him, you can try as hard as you want, you are not getting in..

Jesus also said this..
"Jesus cried and said, He that believeth on me, believeth not on me, but on him that sent me. And he that seeth me seeth him that sent me.

I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness. And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world.

He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day. For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak. And I know that his commandment is life everlasting: whatsoever I speak therefore, even as the Father said unto me, so I speak."
{John 12:44-50 }
Again, lets look closer at Jesus's own Words... "whosoever believeth" "He that believeth on me" "He that rejecteth me" "Condemned already" Are you getting the picture? Accept Jesus and Live. Reject Jesus and die.

It does not matter who you are, where you are from, what you got or don't got. IT MATTERS if you accept or reject JESUS. Say it with me, J, E, S, U, S, JESUS.

Jesus is, in essence, Gravity. Two men stand on a high place. One believes in Gravity, and one does not. One stands firm and holds on, one steps off and falls to his death. This is reality. Lets look at this.. First, did believing in Gravity, Save the one man? YES. Did it make him right and the other wrong? YES. Did it make him a better person? No. Not necessarily. Did the man that fell to his death, do so, because of his lack of belief in Gravity? YES. Did Gravity kill him for not accepting it? NO!!!!! Gravity did not kill the man. He killed himself.

When they were both in the High Place, the one man attempted to warn the other about Gravity. He tried to tell him what would happen. The man did not listen. So was it the man's fault that the other did not listen? Nope. No folks, Gravity did not kill the man. The other man did not kill the man. Like Gravity, Jesus does not care who you are. How big or how small. How rich or how poor. How powerful or how meek. IF you accept the reality and truth that Gravity exists, you will not fall. If you chose not to accept, you WILL fall to your death. Accept Jesus and live. Reject Jesus and die.

Again, God made it simple. Again, say this one with me..
"Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me." {John 14:6}
Do you know Jesus as your Savior? Have you been adopted into the Family of God? If not, say this Prayer. Right now. Wherever you may be. Say it in your own words, and do not doubt in your heart. God will hear you. He will send the Spirit of Life to you. Let us Pray..

"Oh heavenly Father, Lord God. I am a sinner. I know this. I know there is nothing I can do to change that. But I know you can. I accept Jesus's sacrifice for me. I repent my sins. Please send the Spirit of Adoption into my life. Help me to get to know the real you. Save me. Please. In the name of Jesus, Amen!"

That's it. It really is that simple. Now go tell someone what you have just done. "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved." {Romans 10:9} You need to find a Church that God leads you to, and be Baptized the way Jesus said to be. You are now a Child of God. A new Creature. You "have put off the old man with his deeds, and have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him." {Colossians 3:10}

The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all. Amen. {2 Corinthians 13}

Until next time, be Blessed, be a Blessing, and Jesus IS Lord..
