Jesus is our Righteous King

Jesus is our righteous king. He alone is righteous. Let us look and see what the word righteousness actually means shall we? In the Hebrew tsedeq righteous means justice, doing what is right, obedience to the law, partaking in salvation. Since the Bible specifically says that NONE ARE RIGHTEOUS both in the Old Testament and in the New Testament we can conclude that the only way to be righteous is to be made righteous by God. How is this done?

Simply by receiving Jesus as our personal Savior. This is what is meant by entering into his rest and ceasing from our works. In other words we cannot work our way to righteousness. Nor, may I add can you work your way to keeping righteousness. The righteousness in Christ Jesus is given by IMPUTATION. This means the righteousness of God is accredited to the account of the receiver by grace. (unearned mercy)

In other words when a person receives Jesus Christ and becomes born again that person is MADE righteous. That person is right in the eyes of God, fulfilling the law’s demands of perfection, partaking in salvation. Based on what? JESUS CHRIST’S RIGHTEOUSNESS BEING IMPARTED TO THEM BY GRACE THROUGH FAITH IN JESUS CHRIST THE RIGHTEOUS.

As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one Romans 3:10

All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned everyone to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all. Isaiah 53:6

When you hear so called Christians tell you that you must be righteous by behavior that is another gospel you are hearing. A false gospel, one that will lead you straight to hell if you adhere to it! Be forewarned of this!

Let me show you what the Bible says about being righteous.  

For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes. Romans 10:4

And because of him you are in Christ Jesus, who became to us wisdom from God, righteousness and sanctification and redemption, 1 Corinthians 1:30

When one is made righteous by God then one will act righteous. It is like a mathematical equation.

1 (impartation of righteousness) + 2(faith in Jesus Christ’s righteousness)= righteousness imparted.

When one becomes righteous by grace through faith in Jesus Christ, he becomes a new creature in Jesus Christ. The old man is dead and crucified with Jesus Christ.  No longer does the new creature live like the old man. Many scriptures tell us to test the fruit. If the fruit stinks then the tree is bad and the tree is dead in sin.  The Bible does not tell us to judge whether someone is a Christian or not just because he says he is one or because he names the name of Jesus. It says to JUDGE RIGHTEOUS JUDGEMENT, test the fruit, and prove all things.

Jesus is a common name. Many are called Jesus. It is a derivative of Joshua. It is not the name which saves but the person behind the name! Paul said…DO YOU BELIEVE IN ANOTHER JESUS?

Now this brings me to my next point: Those who are in works to keep their salvation. These are those who trust in their own righteousness to save them. Why? Because they do not trust in the righteousness of Jesus Christ alone.  If they did then they would know that only God can keep his laws and be righteous. A new creature in Christ does not need to try to work to be righteous any more than a bird needs to use a manual in learning how to fly!

This is the test of a true Christian. By faith in the power of Jesus Christ’s righteousness the Christian is righteous and the fruit is righteous because it is produced by the Righteous King.

If you know that he is righteous, you may be sure that everyone who practices righteousness has been born of him. 1 John 2:29

We know that everyone who has been born of God does not keep on sinning, but he who was born of God protects him, and the evil one does not touch him. 1 John 5:8

Jesus Christ makes the Christian righteous and by the Holy Spirit they live righteous and the devil cannot touch him.

 And the work of righteousness shall be peace; and the effect of righteousness quietness and assurance forever. Isaiah 32:17

Child Evangelism in different communities. 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.
