Our condemnation hasn't been lifted - in fact - it has since been reiterated by our leadership that it is "continued." It means that generation after generation has passed with our people living under this condemnation. In short, most of us throughout our history have been brought up in the faith not knowing any different. Minimally, the preaching, passion, and patterns of those who have gone before us haven't brought us out of the condemnation. In more speculative words, the faith of our fathers is probably not the faith that will prepare our people to receive the Savior at His coming.
I really don't have a picturesque life. I have hurt, I have hidden, I have hungered for closeness, and I have kept people self-destructively at a distance.
When we know that love and love Him in return, our relationship with God becomes something that enables God’s love to not only fill us and satisfy us, but to overflow from within us and into the world.
The change God desires will only occur if we are willing to listen directly to the voice of God... Our love for God and the gospel of Jesus Christ as it is in the heavens needs to be more powerful than the love of this kingdom of God as it now is and things as they now are... We can still pray with all of our hearts “Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.”
