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. Get back on the path that leads to life and cling tightly to me. I will not let you go. I will help you to walk. Make the effort.


Back from Oklahoma!!

Hope you've all been wanting to see the pictures!!


The first part of How the West was Won (for Jesus), was filmed while I was over there.

Dave Hinton is the producer of the film. It is based on his true family history. Dave plays John Walker who is father of Henry Walker, Henry plays the leading role.

Dave Hinton as John Walker

Dave plays a moonshiner who is illegally distilling whisky. As he impatiently waits for his sons to come and help him, his son Henry is getting saved at a Brush Harbour Revival, as he hears his mother singing. John's two other sons turn up to tell him the 'distressing' news. John Walker declares that he his going to make sure that he teaches Henry a good hard lesson when he sees him.

Henry's mum, Tina Walker (played by me, Shirley) sees him off after his Dad beats him and tells him to go. She assures him that there are two of them praying for his Dad now and that John too will get saved.

Here' Tina praying for 'my boy', Henry. (What I forgot to tell you was I had to do all this in an Irish accent!!)


Henry is used by God on his adventures, to get Mikey, a gold miner, saved.


Henry says goodbye to Mikey


Tina plans to talk to her husband John Walker to help him face the reason he is feeling so down lately ....which is of course the missing Henry. She is small but authoritive and persuades John to let her trim his hair and beard. During the scene she preaches the gospel in a lovely way to her husband and convinces him to go and find Henry..

A tender moment before John goes off on his journey to find Henry.


There's much more. Keep praying for the film to get finished!!!

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!
