Joseph Prince sermon Condemnation Kills The Spirit Gives Life: Condemnation kills, but the Spirit gives life, and we started last week, talking about how this ministry of condemnation, otherwise known as the ministry of death, is actually the Old Testament ministry.
A lot of people are in this kind of a situation where they are going through a lot both mentally and heath wise and they don’t even realize it is all because of condemnation. It could be Self-Condemnation or condemnation from others, maybe a husband maybe a wife or maybe a parent.
Your parent might be dead, but the condemnation is not, you’re still being burdened by that condemnation, that sense of condemnation and it all comes from the law.
The Bible says, the Bible calls the law, the ministry of condemnation.” And the “ministry of death.”
Let’s go back to 2 Corinthians 3:6-7 once again, It says here in verse 6: God has made us” sufficient to be ministers of a new covenant, Not the old, there is no power.
God doesn’t supply the power for ministers to become ministers of the old covenant, but to be ministers of the new covenant, not of the letter but of the Spirit. The letter here is the law but the Spirit is grace.
Some people say, we are not under law In terms of the ceremonial law, in terms of the feast, in terms of those things that are the 613 commandments that is in the Law of Moses, But we are still under the Ten Commandments.”
Now if the ministry of death, carved in letters on stone, came with such glory that the Israelites could not gaze at Moses’ face because of its glory, which was being brought to an end will not the ministry of the Spirit, have even more glory?”
For if there was glory in the ministry of condemnation, now he calls the law the ministry of condemnation, So you have the letter that kills, which is the law. Then he calls it the ministry of death then now he calls it the ministry of condemnation. For if there was glory in the ministry of condemnation, the ministry of righteousness must far exceed it in glory and the grace ministry is the ministry of righteousness.
It confers righteousness as a gift, So sinful man can stand in the presence of a Holy God because of the gift of righteousness and we have Jesus to thank for and to give the glory to.
Do you know who is the last minister of condemnation? Do you know who is the very last one? It was John the Baptist.
The Bible says so in Matthew 11:13, Jesus Himself is talking, Jesus said: “For all the prophets and the law prophesied, Until John.
the ministry of condemnation ends with John, John means God’s grace, He was the last prophet of judgment, He was the last prophet of condemnation.
Pastor Joseph prince wants us to choose the spirit of grace because it gives life and let go of condemnation that kills.
