7 signs that you might be under a mixed message of Law and Grace

1. You are still the main point of reference. You still think its all about you! and what you do! instead of Christ and what Christ has already done for you !
2. Your living more by the AM I ? than the I AM ! You keep wondering AM I righteous? AM I forgiven ? Am I accepted? AM I doing enough ? AM I pleasing to God? but under Grace you confidently declare.. I AM righteous ! I AM forgiven! I Am accepted ! not because of what I do its all about what God in Christ has already done for me.
3. You have a spiritual bipolar christian disorder or spiritual O.C.D. Obsessive Condemnation Disorder. In other words you have continual emotional swings that go from great Joy to great Condemnation and Despair.. Your christian life is more like an emotional roller coaster ride than a walk in the park. There is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Romans 8:1. The law is called the ministry of death and condemnation. 2 Cor 3:7-9. If your still under the law then you will experience a lot of despair and condemnation, but Jesus came to give you the abundant life in Him.
4. You have performance driven anxiety and little rest. Grace rests in what God has already accomplished! Under the Law you still think its about you and what you do, never get your do before your who. As you understand who you are in Christ then your do will naturally follow or manifest like fruit on a vine.. I have never seen an apple tree struggle to produce an apple! An apple tree will naturally produce apples because of its DNA . We have the DNA of God! That is Gods .. Divine Nature Attributes ! As we abide in the vine, we will see fruit naturally manifest in and through our lives.
5. Unrest is a real indicator that you are still under a mixed message of law and grace. Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord. Did you know that Noah's name actually means Rest? so you could say that rest found grace in the eyes of the Lord. When we Rest thats when God works. God has called us to cease from out works and to enter into His Rest. Hebrews 4. 1-3 . If you have embraced the right gospel it will lead you into the Rest of God! If you embrace the wrong gospel then it will lead you into the wilderness of unrest and despair. Unrest is a sign of unbelief ! you are still not convinced that what Christ did was enough ! You still think its Jesus plus what your do ! ..but listen to the words of Jesus .
Matthew 11:28 -30 Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 
For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”
If you find your self begging God to forgive you, bless you,to give you a clean heart
6. If you find yourself begging and pleading for God to forgive you, bless you, to give you a new heart and to not forsake you then you still don't understand what He has already done!
God has already forgiven you Eph 1:7, Col 1:14, He has already blessed you with every spiritual blessing in heavenly places in Christ Eph. 1:3, He will never leave you or forsake you and nothing will ever separate you from the love of God in Christ Rom 8:31-38. You know longer have a wicked heart
but a new heart. Ezk 11:19 Hebrews 8:10 . Not only that you are complete in Christ and have been filled with the fullness of God. Col 2:9-10.. You are not a poor, desperate, needy christian , under grace you are extremely full of God! There is now nothing missing or lacking in your life!
7. You fear the Judgment of God.. Well Ive got good news and bad news about this. The bad news is yes that you will stand before the judgment seat of Christ, but the good news for you as a believer is that you will stand before the 
Judgment seat of Christ IN Christ .. so for all who are in christ there is no fear of Judgment ..
Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God. And we have known and believed the love that God has for us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in him.
Love has been perfected among us in this: that we may have boldness in the day of judgment; because as He is, so are we in this world.
There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love. 
We love Him because He first loved 1 John 4:15-19
