No Condemnation for those IN Christ

There is no condemnation for those who are IN Christ; who are walking after the Spirit; who have been forgiven of their past sins. Walking after and following means obeying from the heart.

I’ve presented a lot of scriptures that state that if we walk after the flesh we are not IN Christ but have stepped outside of the Body of Christ.

The Bible says that anyone who commits a sin is no longer IN Christ but has fallen from grace and into condemnation (death) because they have become the servant of Satan and are no longer the servant of Christ.

Romans 6:16
“Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey,
his servants ye are to whom ye obey;
whether of sin unto death,
or of obedience unto righteousness?”

If you decide to live the way you want to Romans 8:13 will apply.

But if you decide to live after the ways of God and follow Jesus this scripture can also apply, but you cannot have it both ways.

Romans 8:13
“For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die:
But if ye through the Spirit
do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.”

When we sin, we are no longer part of the Body of Christ, but have sinned against our own bodies bringing the wages of sin is death law (condemnation) against ourselves.

We are not allowed to pollute the Body of Christ with sin.

1Corinthians 6:15-18
“Know ye not that your bodies are the members of Christ?
Shall I then take the members of Christ,
and make them the members of an harlot?
God forbid.

What? know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body?
for two, saith He, shall be one flesh.

But he that is joined unto the Lord is One Spirit.

Flee fornication.
Every sin that a man doeth IS without the Body;
But he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body.”

{Without the body means outside of the body}

Jesus said not everyone that professes Him as their Lord and
Savior for salvation will inherit eternal life. But only those that Do the Will of His Father in Heaven, those will have salvation.

Matthew 7:21
“Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord,
shall enter into the kingdom of heaven;
But he that Doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.”

When a man asked Jesus what he must do to inherit eternal life
Jesus said keep the commandments:

Matthew 19:17
“…But IF thou wilt Enter into Life, Keep the Commandments.”

Unrepentant sin brings condemnation and death if it is not repented of no matter if someone has been baptized or has made a one time professionof faith. If we commit a sin we are told to confess and repent in order to receive forgiveness and Life.

We are instructed by the Jesus, the disciples and the Apostle Paul to confess, repent and ask forgiveness of any sins we may commit. We are also instructed over and over again to obey all of God’s holy commandments.

1John 2:1
“My little children, these things write I unto you,
That ye Sin Not.
And if any man sin,
we have an advocate with the Father,
Jesus Christ the righteous:”

1John 1:9
“If we confess our sins,
He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins,
and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”

Lastly, in Revelation we are also told
who will have the right to the Tree of Life:

Revelation 22:14
“Blessed are they that do His commandments,
THAT they may have right to the Tree of Life,
and may enter in through the gates into the city.”

We don’t have to continue to request forgiveness of the past sins we’ve already been forgiven; unless of course we repeat that sin again; then it must be dealt with. God says that he chastens us to so that we will not perish in the destruction of the wicked.

1Corinthians 11:32
“But when we are judged,
we are chastened of the Lord,
THAT we should not be condemned with the world.”
