IF I SAY TO A BROTHER THAT THERE IS NOW NO CONDEMNATION (Rom 8:1) TO THOSE WHO ARE IN CHRIST JESUS, ALMOST IMMEDIATELY THE RESPONSE WILL BE A JOYFUL AMEN! ON THE OTHER HAND, IF YOU TELL HIM THE GOSPEL TRUTH THAT IN CHRIST, GOD IS NOT COUNTING SINS AGAINST US ANYMORE, UNBELIEF IS AN ALMOST CERTAIN RESPONSE YOU WILL RECEIVE.
(2Cor 5:19a) “God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting men’s sins against them.”
NOTICE WHAT ONE OF THE NEW COVENANT TENETS SAYS:
(Heb 8:12) “For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more.”
DAVID ALSO SPOKE OF THE BLESSEDNESS OF A MAN WHOSE SIN THE LORD WILL NEVER COUNT AGAINST HIM.
(Rom 4:6) David says the same thing when he speaks of the blessedness of the man to whom God credits righteousness apart from works:
(Rom 4:7) “Blessed are they whose transgressions are forgiven, whose sins are covered.
(Rom 4:8) Blessed is the man whose sin the Lord will never count against him.”
CHRIST HAS RECONCILED US TO GOD THROUGH HIS SACRIFICIAL DEATH ON THE CROSS IN ORDER TO PRESENT US HOLY IN HIS SIGHT, WITHOUT BLEMISH AND FREE FROM ACCUSATION.
(Col 1:21-22) “Once you were alienated from God and were enemies in your minds because of your evil behavior. But now he has reconciled you by Christ’s physical body through death to present you holy in his sight, without blemish and free from accusation”
IT’S ALL ABOUT JESUS!
