You: “God, I heard a preacher say you are judging me, cities, countries and nations because we sin. Is this true? Are you judging me?”
God: “John 5:22 For the Father judges no one, but has committed all judgment to the Son.”
You: “Jesus, Father said He committed all judgment to You. Are you judging me, cities, countries and nations because we sin?”
Jesus: John 5:24 Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life. He does not come into judgment, but has passed from death to life. And don’t forget John 12:47 And if anyone hears My words and does not believe, I do not judge him; for I did not come to judge the world but to save the world.”
You: “Then who is it that keeps making me feel judged and condemned?
Jesus: “Rom 3:20 Therefore by the deeds of the law no flesh will be justified in His sight, for by the law is the knowledge of sin.”
You: “The law gives the knowledge of sin!? Of course, without the law I wouldn’t have even known something was considered a sin!”
Holy Spirit: “Gen 1:3 And there was light! LOL”
You: “Hey, Holy Spirit! This same preacher said You are walking right there with us and each time we sin You are right there to convict us because that is Your ministry. If Dad and Jesus aren’t judging, why are You making us feel so condemned?”
Holy Spirit: “2Cr 3:6-9 [God] made us[you] sufficient as ministers of the new covenant, not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life. 7 But if the ministry of death, written and engraved on stones, was glorious, so that the children of Israel could not look steadily at the face of Moses because of the glory of his countenance, which glory was passing away, 8 how will the ministry of the Spirit not be more glorious? 9 For if the ministry of condemnation had glory, the ministry of righteousness exceeds much more in glory.
You: “So Your ministry has nothing to do with conviction of sin and condemnation because Scripture contrasts Your ministry of life with the condemning ministry of death engraved on stones! But why do I keep hearing the condemning voice of the Law in my head?”
Jesus: “Rev 12:10 Then I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, “Now salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren, who accused them before our God day and night, has been cast down.
You: “So the accuser, satan, was before Father holding up the Law and showing my every sin to Him in an attempt to make Father judge and punish me. But that didn’t work since he was bounced. Now he has been cast down and instead of showing Father the Law and everything I am doing wrong, he is showing it to me, trying to make me believe it is Holy Spirit convicting me of Father’s judgment. What is he trying to accomplish?”
Father: “Gal 5:4 you who attempt to be justified by law; you have fallen from grace.”
You: “So by showing me the law and tricking me into feeling judged by You, satan is trying to get me to once again work for my justification! And if I fall for that, I fall from grace! But people always say we fall from grace when we sin? They were all wrong! We fall from grace by trying to be justified by the law and works!”
Holy Spirit: “Rom 5:20 But where sin abounds, grace abounds much more.”
You: “Now that’s Good News!”
God, Jesus, Holy Spirit: “AMEN!”
