Are you aware that the legal case that the Law of Sin and Death had against you HAS BEEN CLOSED! Sin and death no longer have any claim against you or your life. In heaven, your case has been dismissed. Not only has it been dismissed and closed, there is no higher court of appeal that Sin and Death can take you to.
It is true that they had a case against you, and a very good one at that. In fact, there was no hope for you not to be found guilty. You were so guilty that they would have locked you up and thrown away the key! There was absolutely no hope for you or me! We were doomed to be found guilty and to pay the price for our sin, which is the death penalty.
I have heard (and thought so too at one time) many people argue about how a loving God can send people to hell for their sin, especially those that we think are good people. From a carnal or a worldly standpoint this is a hard concept to grasp. I understand this; however, this is only because we still have a desire for the things of this world and do not understand what it cost God to redeem us.
Jesus had an absolute and complete HATE for sin and an absolute and complete LOVE for righteousness. The reason why He hated sin so much is because of His great love for His Father. The same is true where we are concerned. The greater your love for God is the more you will hate sin and everything that this world offers and stands for. The more you are transformed into His image, which is righteousness, the more you will develop a HATE for sin and understand why the punishment for sin is so severe. In fact, the more you know God the more you feel that even hell is not a punishment great enough.
Sounds harsh, I know, but it is the truth. In the end God will be justified and we will understand why. For now, though, we need to accept that God is a just God, He knows what He is doing, why He does what He does, and how He is doing what He does. The truth is you and I deserve hell because of our own corrupt decisions against Him. Without God intervening for us through Jesus’ death and resurrection, we would be lost and condemned to hell forever.
BUT, because you have chosen to believe in Jesus Christ and what His death and resurrection did for you, and you now call Him Lord, the case against you has been dismissed. There is no sin, fault or failure that can testify against you. The case is closed. It is closed for all eternity! You are His, you are righteous and He is your defense. Any accusing voice that comes against you before God is dismissed. Period. Jesus died for you, your crimes have been paid for, and there is nothing left to pay!
Romans 8:1 So now the case is closed! There remains no accusing voice of condemnation against those who are joined in life-union with Jesus, the Anointed One. (TPT)
