Condemnation Is The Root
Romans 8:1, NASB
1Therefore there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ
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.
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!!
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.
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.
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
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.
continue to pray for Jack who came into our stall this week
and didn't look too good at all.
of the Lord
PRAYER REQUESTS FOR THE NATIONS
Word of the Lord Ministries Int'l
Katey's doing next.......
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
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 dont 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 Londons 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
God also shields you from the pestilence that walks
in darkness, referring to viruses which you cannot
see. You dont have to be afraid of deadly viruses
lurking somewhere or wonder if some deadly disease is developing
in your body.
God also doesnt 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!
