The Efficacy Of The Power In The Law Of Spirit Of Life In Christ



The freedom the unbeliever obtained is as a result of what is called substitutionary work of Christ, which means in the eyes of God, whatever that was meant for the unbeliever to go through, Jesus Christ took his place. The unbeliever by proxy in Jesus Christ went through the ordeals He went through. Apostle Paul sums it up this way “For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.” (2Cor 5:21). It says that He was made sin not that He became sin, which implies that He took a position that was not His. He didn’t commit any sin but sin was laid on Him and He took it voluntarily for mankind. 


That is to say that the sin of mankind was laid on Him and without mincing words He took it and bears the consequence of it. On this note whatever is the punishment of sin for man was laid on Him and He took it for man and as a result man is free from the consequence of his sin because Jesus Christ took it for him. Now consider this “The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.” (Jn 1:29). The quotation says He took the sin of the world, this implies that there is no more sin (sin nature or root) in the world because Jesus has taken it away. It is interesting to know that every man will face judgment as a result of sins he or she has committed and here Jesus Christ made Himself available for the judgment of sin. 



Therefore, no man will face judgment again as a result of sin he has committed, rather as result of not accepting the fact that Jesus did take the consequence of his sin. Anyone who accepts this reality that Jesus died in his place has been freed from any consequence of sin and will not face judgment because he has accepted that Jesus took his place. In the same way, anyone who refuses to accept the fact that Jesus has taken the consequence of his sin is not freed from the consequence of his sin and will definitely face judgment because of his refusal to accept the finished work of Christ.


Freedom from condemnation is one of the freedoms the law of Spirit of life in Christ has offered to man. It is interesting to understand that once the law of Spirit of life in Christ has taken over someone’s life automatically it disables the effectiveness of the law of sin and death in the life of that individual. The implication of this is that the individual is no longer under the rule of sin and death and as a result the manifestation and effect of the law of sin and death come to an end. This suggests that when one is under the influence of the law of sin and death, it means he or she is being possessed by the power behind the kingdom of darkness and such individual’s attitude will of course portray the activities of the kingdom of darkness. On the other hand, when one is under the influence of the law of Spirit of life in Christ, he or she cannot be possessed by the powers of darkness but it is true he or she can be oppressed by the power of darkness. 


As a matter of fact, it means that the power of darkness loses potency in influencing the believer, even in the face of some manifestation or evidence of the presence of darkness in the life of that individual. Therefore, some symptoms and dream manifestation cannot hold waters in the life of the believer; this is because those things may be legalized in the kingdom of darkness but if they take place in the life of a believer, who is under the influence and control of the law of Spirit of life in Christ they don’t matter at all.
Take for instance; what is legalized in a country may not be legalized in another country because both countries are operating on different constitutional platforms.
God bless you!
