The Case is Closed!
Romans 8:33 (KJB) Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God’s elect? It is God that justifieth.
Harsh accusations fly with a vengeance in this world. Certainly, those who profess to personally know Christ are common targets for finger pointing and condemnation by satan and his band of dark minions. He loves to poke, pester, and persecute any person who claims to have a fellowship with Christ. He tries to rattle their thinking and influence their choices by pushing them to the edge for the purpose of testing their limits.
However, those who know Christ understand that despite the heat of satan’s accusations they have already been justified, or vindicated, and possess eternal hope resting inside a personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ.
This verse, along with others, including Romans 8:1 make it abundantly clear that God does not condemn his spiritual family but has already justified them and closed the case with an eternal defense made possible through the completed spiritual work of His Son Jesus Christ on the cross at Calvary.
