And the gift is not like the one man’s sin, because from one sin came the judgment, resulting in condemnation, but from many trespasses came the gift, resulting in justification. Romans 5:16
CONDEMNATION is the act of inflicting a penalty upon a person, and to declare them GUILTY of wrongdoing. Before Adam and Eve sinned against God, in the Garden of Eden, there was NO SIN, NO EVIL, NO WICKEDNESS, and NO DEPRAVITY. There was ONLY PEACE, LOVE and HARMONY. Then when the devil comes into the picture, SIN enters the HEARTS of Adam and Eve, and ALL of mankind is born with a SINFUL NATURE, and comes under the CONDEMNATION of the HOLY, RIGHTEOUS GOD. But this is NOT the END of this scenario.
You see, God’s LOVE for His creation is SO STRONG, COMPASSIONATE and UNENDING that He decided to present mankind with a GIFT, that could and would bring JUSTIFICATION to a LOST, GUILTY WORLD. A world full of SIN, EVIL, WICKEDNESS and DEPRAVITY. That GIFT is the SACRIFICE of His ONE and ONLY SON, the Lord Jesus Christ, who was willing to take on ALL the sin of ALL mankind. Jesus the ONE who KNEW NO SIN, BECAME SIN. He was being OBEDIENT to His Father God, even unto DEATH and the GRAVE, in order to COUNTERACT the DISOBEDIENCE of ONE man, ADAM, and to PROVIDE a WAY for mankind to receive JUSTIFICATION or being FREED from the CONDEMNATION that they are presently under. Which area are you presently living under, CONDEMNATION or JUSTIFICATION?
If you have NOT given your HEART and LIFE to God, then you are living under God’s CONDEMNATION. And you are headed for an ETERNITY in Hell, with ALL its HORRORS and NO WAY of ESCAPE. You MUST be JUSTIFIED, in order to have an ETERNITY in HEAVEN, with ALL its BLESSINGS. And to receive JUSTIFICATION, you MUST TURN AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle, and TURN TO GOD, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART. You MUST BELIEVE, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU, and is ALIVE in HEAVEN, making intercession for you, before God. Then CONFESS your sins to Him, and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS. You MUST ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION and JUSTIFICATION in order to spend ALL of ETERNITY in HEAVEN and to ESCAPE HELL. Do this NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
