Unto Salvation Not Unto Condemnation

Words In Season:
There is one common denominator between a sinner and a saint. The sinner CAN NOT save himself, and the saint DID NOT save himself.
    Soji Omole

Bearing:
"For I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth: to the Jew first, and also to the Greek"
    Romans 1:16

Bottomline:
"I came to save the world not to condemn the world" We need to outline this statement of truth clearly from The Great Master Himself.

I would rather make a catalogue of  thousand ways to be free from sin than to be itemising and illustrating a thousand type of sins. Telling a mortal man to run from sins is like telling a cockerel to run from grains of maize. Just as grains of maize naturally attract chickens, so does sin naturally attracts mortal man.
You could now see why all the talking down on people, tough messages of condemnation and accusation has only produced rebels and hypocrites and eyes service men in House of God? Could you now see why your church workers kept impregnating themselves right under your very nosešŸ‘ƒdespite all your tough earth shaking heart rending "anointed" sermons?
First and foremost why are many preachers found of preaching messages of condemnation?

1). To gain approval from men as righteous and just.
2). Pride and self righteousness that manifests self exhibition and exaltation. Again with the ultimate goal making them appear pious before men. While inwardly they are struggling with sin.
3). That wicked tendency in man to appreciate himself and depreciate others.
4).Every one share what he has, as the saying goes.  As said earlier, while inwardly they struggle with sins and of course the fear of it's consequences, they share their fears with others. Since they themselves are ignorant of a way out!
Of all General Superintendents, General Overseers, Presidents and founders, Prophets and Evangelists both past and present, Paul the legendary Apostle was the only man ever, that was honest with this struggle with sins in Romans 7:15 - 21. Others covered it up with fine suits and pious appearances on our altars and pulpits. Pretending and talking down just any man they set their eyes on in the congregation. Pointing to the speck of sawdust in the eyes of others, while they are struggling with logs of wood in their eyes. Some even wear sunglasses to cover it up!
Let's now leave these modern day Pharisees and return to the cockerel and a bag full grains of maize......
What on earth can make a cockerel lose it's taste for maize grains? The same principle that can make grains of maze repulsive to a chicken will make sins repulsive to a mortal man. Yes, same principle. What principle?
When the chicken is turned to another creature other than a chicken! Otherwise no other way! Same goes for the man! Man must be turned to another creature for him to lose taste for sins!

"And the Spirit of the LORD will come upon thee, and thou......shalt be TURNED  INTO ANOTHER MAN."
       1 Samuel 10:6
"Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a NEW CREATURE: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new."
      2 Corinthians 5:17

Just as it will take a chicken to be turned into another creature to hate grains of maize, so will it take a man to be turned into another man to hate sins and even run from it.
Imagine a cockerel seeing a bowl of maize and running away from it!? Certainly it will take another force out of this world! 
And the only out this world will make a cockerel pass by a bowl full of a change of nature! It has to be changed to another creature, preferably a penguin. 

Jesus knew this, that was why He came. Else if a man can save and change himself, there is no need of Him coming to save. Our Saviour also understand the role of The Holy Spirit in this holy metamorphosis of  a man in I Samuel 10:6, that was why when He was here with us He said:
"......Verily verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of THE SPIRIT, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God."
       John 3:5
Bottomline again?
Don't just point to men their sins and then begin to reel and roll out the judgements and consequences. But point them also to the Saviour, so that He can save them from their sins and change them into another man and a new creature. I Samuel 10:6.
That is the gospel of Christ, the power of God unto salvation.
If what really is in your heart is for them to get saved and not that you are out to judge and condemn them. Or maybe to settle scores on the pulpit.
Friend, what am after is to get you saved, not to judge and condemn you. I hereby point you to The Saviour today just as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness. Look into Him today and be saved.
