Condemnation Is The Root Cause

Romans 8:1, NASB
1Therefore there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.

When you have a plant with sickly leaves, it would be foolish to just treat the leaves without knowing the root cause of the problem. Similarly, when “leaves” of sickness, poverty and destructive habits start sprouting in your life, you need to know what the root cause is.

Experts will tell you that it is stress. They may go a little deeper and say that it is fear — fear of the future, of rejection, of loss, of death and so on. But is fear really the root? Or is there something deeper than fear?

The Bible shows us that the most fundamental cause of problems in our lives is condemnation. With condemnation comes fear. Fear then induces stress which brings about the symptoms of the curse.

This is what happened to Adam. Long before he faced poverty, sickness and eventually death, he had stress. Because of his sin, God told him, “In the sweat of your face you shall eat bread till you return to the ground.” (Genesis 3:19) Sweat speaks of stress. But before there was stress, there was fear because Adam told God, “I heard Your voice in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; and I hid myself.” (Genesis 3:10)

But what made Adam fearful? Adam only feared when, seeing his nakedness, he realized that he had sinned against God. He felt so ashamed and condemned that he hid himself. God then asked him, “Who told you that you were naked?” (Genesis 3:11) There was no one else in the garden other than Adam and Eve, so we know that it was probably the devil who told Adam that he was naked.

My friend, condemnation is the root cause of the symptoms of the curse manifesting in your life. That is why you need to know that at the cross, God took all your sins, put them on Jesus and unleashed the full fury of His wrath against them until Jesus cried out, “It is finished!”

All your sins have been completely punished in the body of Christ who was condemned for you. The root cause of all your problems has been dealt with. This means that the devil cannot enforce the curse in your life apart from your receiving condemnation. So come to the place of no condemnation and no sick leaves will sprout in your life!

The Lord is saying. I am with you to help you with these things you find so difficult. You feel you are in a fog of details and don't know where to start. I will help you to pick up the right threads and to untangle the 'mess'. You will have a clear way forward. Keep going, pray in tongues and you will see it taking shape before your eyes.





On Tuesday, Katey and myself are heading down to Wales. It should be quite an adventure going in my old converted transit. We will be travelling down through the night as I have to be at Jonny's graduation on Monday. Hopefully the Lord will have a place for us to stay down there... if not we may have to park just anywhere and sleep in the van.


It all started when I picked up the following book at Ellel Grange. I had it for months and hardly looked at it..



Then a lady came into the stall and told me that there was a place in Wales where God's Spirit was moving in wonderful ways. I asked her to tell me more....


"People passing were wandering up the drive, compelled to ask what this place was. The proprietors went through the same scenario, day after day. They would welcome the visitor in, offer them a drink, show them round and ask if they would like a blessing. What happened after that was amazingly supernatural. The Holy Spirit would take over and the person (who could be an atheist) would fall under the power and would experience an amazing encounter with God!." People getting saved, healed etc. (My paraphrase)

Looking on the Internet to find information I found this was the book I had already bought.. I came home and quickly digested the contents of this book. What is happening in Ffald-y-Brenin is phenomenal... I would recommend this book to anyone. You can buy it on their site and I'm hoping to bring some back with me for the stall. Let me know if you specifically want one. You won't regret reading it!!

Grace Outpouring

I felt that I was meant to read it because of the new house we have.. Ffald-y-Brenin is a Christian retreat that is also a house of prayer. On Tuesday we will be going to the teaching day on Local Houses of Prayer, where we will learn more about how to assimilate some of the methods they are using there to pray for the Holy Spirit to move in our locality here in Doncaster. I believe this move is happening already at the stall. We have had people coming round to our location, not understanding why they had visited until after we have spoken to them about Jesus. One man, who was a supposed atheist felt he had to come and just stand at our stall. He was so moved that he welled up with tears, that he hurried away overwhelmed.

So please pray that this venture will be fruitful for our lives and that of others.








Prayer Requests

Please pray for Katey's and my trip to Wales. That it will be comfortable. That we will be able to stay good friends after sharing such a small living space...(my converted caravette). Please pray that we will cope with travelling through the night and that we will get enough rest to cope with the teaching day ahead.

Also, that there will be great fruit from what we learn and that the Holy Spirit will do a mighty work on us and our ministries and House of Bread.


Please pray for M who has had shingles. That she will be okay for America. Also no setbacks with anything to do with flights.


Please pray for Anna, a young women with a child and no husband, from a foreign country who has cancer of the cervix. Please pray that the cancer will respond to treatment and that she will be completely clear of it.



Please pray for M who is on all sorts of tranquillisers and anti-depressants that she will be able to have a vision for the future and that she come into the full potential of all her talents and be set free in her mind completely. Her greatest need is to be able to be free from negative thoughts in the morning.


Please could you continue to pray for A's son that he will stay free from drugs and from the people who encouraged him in the past to take them. Please pray for his complete salvation in Jesus.


Please continue to pray for Jack who came into our stall this week and didn't look too good at all.

Round-The-Clock Protection
Psalm 91:5–6
5You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, nor of the arrow that flies by day, 6nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.

During World War II, German planes bombed London. Houses were leveled. But there was one that remained standing amidst the rubble. Its owner said that when she read Psalm 121:4, which says, “Behold, He who keeps Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep,” she told the Lord, “Lord, since You don’t sleep, then there is no point in both of us keeping awake. I will sleep while You keep watch.” And she did, while the Lord protected her and her house.

In 2005, terrorists attacked London’s public transport system. That day, a Singaporean girl found herself unexpectedly late for work and could not get to the train station in time to board her usual train. When she finally neared the station, she realized that it had been bombed just a few minutes earlier. Her mother, who worships in our church, believes that God protected her daughter that day.

God wants you to know that you have round-the-clock protection — “You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, nor of the arrow that flies by day, nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.”

He protects you from “the terror by night”, which could refer to evils such as rape, kidnap or murder. He promises you protection from “the arrow that flies by day”. This could refer to bullets from a crazy sniper, drive-by shootings or home-made rockets fired into your territory.

God also shields you from “the pestilence that walks in darkness”, referring to viruses which you cannot see. You don’t have to be afraid of deadly viruses lurking somewhere or wonder if some deadly disease is developing in your body.

God also doesn’t want you to be afraid of “the destruction that lays waste at noonday”, such as a tsunami hitting the beach resort you are at, or a bomb going off in the shopping mall you are in.

You need not be afraid because God, who neither slumbers nor sleeps, is watching over you 24 hours a day!
