A Joyful Sound (No Condemnation)

Recommended Posts

Psalm 89:15 "Blessed is the people that know the joyful sound: they shall walk, O Lord, in the light of thy countenance." Ultimately there is no greater joyful sound from the lips of man or any heavenly creature then to hear (John 3:14-17) "And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up:That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.
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."
What hope, what life, what joy these words do give and should give to all of man kind.

To know that we are not condemned to an eternal hell of “fire and brimstone” (Rev. 14:10) with unbelievers “Where the worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.” Mk. (9:44), and the “smoke of their torment ascends up for ever and ever.” (Rev 14:11). We with all of man kind have been provided a way to escape this condemnation. We know that when we leave this life whether it be by the way of the grave or at the coming of the Lord we will enter a realm where "God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away" (Rev. 21:4) There for we know we can comfort ourselves and others, not to sorrow for the loved ones who have gone on to be with the Lord, (I Thess. 4-13-18).

(Romans 8:1-2) says “There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.” We are free from the law of sin and death and the pain that comes with it. But we are not to use this freedom to do our own thing “For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another.” (Gal. 5:13).

As we read (Romans 8:1) let us not part way read the verse “There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus” and stop short of full meaning. But let us read the rest of it, that tells us what it really means to be in Christ Jesus. For being in Christ Jesus means to walk and obey the Spirit of "love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law." (Galatians 5:22-23).

As we walk, being free from all condemnation, then we will hear the precious words of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, "Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord." (Mt. 25:23).
