“Who is he who condemns?”

“Who is he who condemns?”

Is there anyone who can cast a verdict of “Guilty” against us. But if we were declared “Not guilty” in our justification, who can reverse God’s verdict? “It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us” (8:34b). When Jesus said from the cross, “It is finished,” He was saying that our sin debt was paid in full by His death. He took the punishment for us. Then He arose from the dead proving that God accepted that payment, so we are safe from future punishment. The word “intercession” is also from the courtroom. It refers to the work of a defense attorney or advocate. As our defense advocate, we can count on Jesus Christ to win our case. He now lives in the presence of God, at His right hand, pleading our case before the Father (Heb. 7:25 ). His plea for us is based on the finished and sufficient work He did on the cross. As believers, we can"

Hi you all. A year or so ago, while reading that verse, the Holy Spirit revealed to me that if the devil is on the losing front of condemning you in your thought life because you are growing in grace & in the knowledge of Him (Jesus), and he is on the losing front of using religious leaders to condemn us by a religious spirit, he will and does resort to what? "Anything that contradicts 'Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven' such as being low on finances or supplies, or friends or you get hit with the symptoms of a cold or whatever, whatever contradicts in appearance, the true nature of God and how He responds to us based soley upon our Advocate, Jesus Christ the Righteous in THE COURT ROOM (thanks a million for that defining Craig, love it!) Jesus Christ is interceeding against that 'form' of condemnation being used against us! There is NOW NO CONDEMNATION to those who ARE IN CHRIST JESUS! That means that when finances, symptoms of sickness, unemployment, emotional distress of any sort, Jesus is in THE COURT ROOM PLEADING AGAINST THAT FORM OF CONDEMNATION and the righteousness WE HAVE as A GIFT is DEMANDING IN HEAVEN, by the which the BLOOD OF JESUS HAS SPRINKLED THE HEAVENS, our acquittalfrom that appearance of condemnation. Look into your body, relationships, ministry funds and so forth and declare Romans 8:1, NO CONDEMNATION WHATSOEVER, and I command in the NAME OF JESUS RIGHT NOW, FOR EVERYONE READING THIS THAT YOUR WALLETS, BANK ACCOUNTS, MINISTRIES, FAMILIES AND BODIES BE FREE OF ANY AND EVERY FORM OF CONDEMNATION AND I RELEASE INTO THOSE AREAS OF YOUR LIFE RIGHT NOW IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST OVERFLOWING ABUNDANCE, EVEN INTO YOUR SLEEP AND REVELATIONS OF JESUS CHRIST!!!!!!!!!!!!!
