MORNINGTIME 4027 

For the Wrath of God is revealed from heaven against ALL ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the Truth in UNRIGHTEOUSNESS; Because that which may be Known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. For the invisible things of Him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, BEING UNDERSTOOD BY THE THINGS THAT ARE MADE, even His Eternal Power and Godhead; so that THEY ARE WITHOUT EXCUSE: Because that, when they Knew God, they Glorified Him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their FOOLISH HEART was darkened. Romans 1:18-21. The intent here is that to Reject Christ, is to go to Hell, AND KNOW IT, with no excuse when you get there. This ends with CONDEMNATION at 100%. (The following is an Illustration ONLY to make a fine point understood. Remember, ILLUSTRATION). As a lost person is CONDEMNED to Hell with a Heart AGAINST Christ, a Saved person is "Condemned" to CONVICTION UNTO REPENTANCE to turn that piece of his Heart still running with self, flesh and the old man nature AND CHANGE IT TO A HEART FULLY, TOTALLY AND COMPLETELY SOLD OUT TO CHRIST. Conviction is kind of like "condemnation lite", just enough for the Lord to let you know that the "Thing" you continue to do that He doesn't like, must change. (This is not about losing Salvation), just, "Let's lose that bad piece of your heart attitude and let Me change it to Purity, Righteousness and Holiness in its place". A Believer WANTS the Lord to dig out any last vestiges of rebellion and replace it with even more Love for the Lord and His Word. THIS, is Pleasing to the Lord as your Heart's Cry IS for the Lord to Grow you in CHRISTLIKENESS from Glory to Glory, day by day. This "Purifying" process is all the work of the Holy Spirit and as much as it may hurt, the results ALWAYS bring His Joy and Peace, Things a rebellious God Hater will NEVER Know. Heart Attitude makes the difference here. And with a GOoD Heart Attitude, you WILL, Be Blessed.
