Justified and made Righteous

 

 

 

 

 

 

What do the scriptures teach us about being justified and made righteous by God? This seems to be a confusing subject for many Christians but if we look at scripture within its whole context and don’t isolate a verse and build a doctrine out of it according to our own person bias we can find the answer.

The bible says that we are justified by 1-THE BLOOD 2- BY GRACE  3-BY BEING CALLED 4 -BY the Faith of Christ   5- In the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Holy Spirit 6 – BY WORKS.

Let’s take a look at each of them individually and then see how they all work together.

1. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him Romans 5:9

First of all justification becomes available by the blood of the lamb shed for an atonement for sins.

2. Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus. Romans 3:24

Then through this atonement Jesus brought propitiation which is appeasement of God’s wrath for sin and thus God now by his Grace (undeserved mercy of the sacrifice of his Son)  justifies all who  receive the atonement provided by Jesus Christ.

3 Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified. Romans 8:30

Those who receive this atonement are those predestinated and called into this Grace.

Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will Ephesians 1:5.

4.  Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith OF Jesus Christ, even we have believed IN Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith OF Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified. Galatians 2:16

Those predestined and called into this Grace are justified by THE FAITH OF JESUS CHRIST.  Notice that we are not justified by our faith but by the faith of Jesus Christ.  It is his faith, his illumination of truth into our hearts that saves.

5. And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God. 1 Corinthians 6:11

Justification comes in the name of Jesus (in the Son’s name not our own reconnaissance ) and by the “Spirit of God which makes us born again, made into new creatures in Christ, translated from darkness into the kingdom of his dear Son.)

6. Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only. James 2:24

Justification is made evident by works which always accompany those having received the Faith of Jesus Christ.  If anyone says he has faith in Christ but walks in darkness according to the bible, he/she is a liar.

In conclusion, JUSTIFICATION (Made right with God) comes by the blood of Jesus making atonement for sin which appeases God’s wrath and provides his GRACE (undeserved mercy and favor) to those predestined to be adopted into God’s family and have been called from darkness into light in the name of Jesus (by his authority ) which makes one born of God by the Holy Spirit and made into the new creature in Christ, having been delivered from the power of the evil one and who now walk in the Spirit, (the same power that raised Christ from the dead)  created unto Good works which God has ordained for each of his elect to perform according to the power (Holy Spirit that works within the new born again spirit or heart)

Ministering Evangelism through music (vocals and guitar) Administration; started church support groups, started various different outreaches over the years, Internet ministry. My ministry gifts are Prophetic Evangelism and Teaching (apologetics and end times revelation in particular). My motivational gifts are Intercession, prophecy, administration. I am a bond servant of Jesus Christ and am called by him to preach the gospel of grace through faith in Jesus Christ apart from the deeds of the law. My Statement of Faith I believe that Jesus is God's son and is himself God, the third person of the Godhead, (Father, Son, Holy Spirit) I believe the bible says YOU MUST be born again by the Holy Spirit to enter into the kingdom of God. I believe Jesus died for the sins of all that have been called out of darkness into his glorious light. Heaven is for the redeemed and hell is for reprobates. The death of Jesus Christ is the substitutionary atonement. “But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed.” Jesus sent the holy Spirit to comfort, teach, build up, edify, consecrate, and seal God’s people until his return. Jesus will return to the earth to rule and reign for 1000 years on the earth. I believe we are in the end times and anti christ will soon be revealed. I also believe that we are living in the last days of the great apostasy and falling away from the truth of God's word but God has a remnant,( his elect, chosen before the foundation of the world,) that have not bowed the knee to Baal. These sheep will soon face great persecution that God will allow to take place before the return of Christ. This persecution which will be worldwide will be what separates the true Christian from the false apostate. Those who love not their lives to the end will be shown to be the true church of Jesus Christ but the compromisers of the integrity of God’s word, who choose the spirit of error, worldly doctrines of men, the works of the flesh and the works of the law will be shown to be apostates like Judas and will die in their sins. No one can come to Jesus unless the Father gives him the ability to do so. No one will seek after Jesus unless he is drawn by the Father according to scripture but all whom God calls by his Holy Spirit will come to Jesus and be saved from their sins and be given eternal life for he who has promised is faithful to perfom his promise. The Lord is calling his church to come out of Babylon : Come out of false new age teaching, Come out of legalistic adherance to OT laws to save you, Come out of false signs and wonders that have no scriptural basis, Come out of witchcraft and the doctrines of demons, Come out of humanism and the promotion of man by self help principles and RETURN TO THE PURE UNADULTERATED WORD OF GOD ! “Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues. Revelation 18:4 Isaiah 55:6-7 Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.
