We have many Christians and Pastors that declare in the church that there is no Righteousness besides no one is perfect even though we’ve come to Christ.
But I Philip as the word of God makes me understand His word through the Holy Spirit which gives me mysteries in His word, I believe and declare that righteousness is possible for those who have Christ Jesus.
Without Jesus, in our generation, no one is righteous.
In those days shall Judah be saved, and Jerusalem shall dwell safely: and this is the name wherewith she shall be called, The LORD our righteousness.
What is Righteousness?
Purity of heart and rectitude of life; conformity of heart and life to the divine law. Righteousness, as used in Scripture and theology, in which it is chiefly used, is nearly equivalent to holiness, comprehending holy principles and affections of heart, and conformity of life to the divine law. It includes all we call justice, honesty and virtue, with holy affections; in short, it is true religion.
So are we declaring that no one is holy, no one righteous since we have Christ and born again and behold the old things have past away and now we live with new mind and a clean heart?
When you become born again and gain Christ, you have Him to be your Righteousness
Without Him you are never righteous.
But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.
We were all sinners but He came to die for us that we will live in righteousness through His blood.
His blood serves as an atonement for our sins and through that we are purged.
Yes you can live a holy life, you can live a righteous life, it is possible!
Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Jesus said happy are those who thirst for righteousness and also are persecuted. Meaning with righteousness you will be persecuted because the world hate you and they know the Father not.
Without Righteousness, you can never please God
But in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with him.
See people who God declared righteous because they believed in God.
For what saith the scripture? Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness.
Even as David also describeth the blessedness of the man, unto whom God imputeth righteousness without works,
Saying, Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered.
God declared Job as a perfect man a righteous man.
Enoch was declared righteous by the Lord
Noah was declared righteous
Also David, because he declared as the Lord covered his sins and forgave him of his iniquity.
So all these people are in the old testament and Jesus Christ was not even in, but when He came He took man’s weakness and all unrighteousness that if you believe in Him and take Him in your life, you will be forgiven and live righteously unto God.
Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God;
To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.
Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? of works? Nay: but by the law of faith.
Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law.
You are justified by faith and through faith you do believe that Jesus Christ is the only righteousness and if you accept Him, you become righteous.
If they call us sinners and weak people as we have Christ then they mean that Christ’s death is in vain. But God forbid that Christ’s death will be in vain.
I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain.
For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified.
Whereof the Holy Ghost also is a witness to us: for after that he had said before,
This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them;
And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more.
Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin.
Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus,
By a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh;
Even through the blood of some four legged animals were sacrificed and through faith their sins were forgiven and covered but we that have Christ , through His blood our sins are not remembered again.
Our righteousness is of the Lord Jesus Christ!
Any man of God, any Christian or any person who says that righteousness is not possible in man is an antiChrist.
Let live a righteous life and Holy, if we have come to Christ through His blood, we are saved and new things and new life begins.
God richly bless you all and lift you up and help you know more of His word in Jesus name. Amen
