"How to Be Declared Righteous"


“How to Be Declared Righteous”

 

This righteousness is given through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe.  There is no difference between Jew and Gentile, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and all are justified freely by His grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.        Romans 3:22-24

 

To be DECLARED RIGHTEOUS, means to have a “RIGHT” relationship with the Almighty God.  In order for sinful mankind to have a “RIGHT” relationship with God.  A person must TURN AWAY FROM their sinful lifestyle, and then through FAITH in Jesus Christ, they are DECLARED RIGHTEOUS before God. 

 

No one has “SPECIAL” CLOUT with God.  ALL have sinned and are continually falling SHORT of God’s glory.  But ALL who BELIEVE are JUSTIFIED (Declared righteous),  by God’s AMAZING GRACE, because of the REDEMPTIVE WORK of the Lord Jesus Christ, on the cross, for the SALVATION of mankind, both Jew and Gentile.

 

Where do you stand in relationship with the Almighty God?  Have you been DECLARED RIGHTEOUS? Or are you CONTINUALLY FALLING SHORT of the glory of God, because you are CONTINUALLY REJECTING Him?  If that is the case, you are headed for an ETERNITY in Hell with ALL its HORRORS, and NO WAY of ESCAPE.  But God has a plan for you to have a RIGHT RELATIONSHIP with Him.  His plan is that you TURN AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle, and TURN TO GOD, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART.  Then you MUST CONFESS your sins to Him, and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS.  You MUST BELIEVE, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU, and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God.  Then you MUST ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION and then be DECLARED RIGHTEOUS.  Do this NOW while you still can.  He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!

"To Tell or Not To Tell"


“To Tell or Not To Tell”

 

In the assembly of all your people, LORD, I told the good news that you save us.   You know that I will never stop telling it.  

I have not kept the news of salvation to myself; I have always spoken of your faithfulness and help.  In the assembly of all your people I have not been silent about your loyalty and constant love.                                                                                                                                                            Psalm 40:9-10

 

David was EXCITED about the GOOD NEWS that God’s plan for mankind was to SAVE them.  He was SO EXCITED that he could NOT STOP telling it.   He PROCLAIMED it, where-ever he went.  He says that he DID NOT keep the NEWS of SALVATION to himself.  He ALWAYS spoke of God’s FAITHFULNESS and HELP.  Even in the assembly of ALL God’s people, David DID NOT keep SILENT, about God’s LOYALTY and His CONSTANT LOVE.  David was a TELLER of the TRUTH of GOD’S SAVING POWER and His EVERLASTING LOVE.

 

If you are a TRUE CHILD of the LIVING GOD, then you too should be a TELLER of the GOOD NEWS.  Think about it; if ALL of God’s TRUE CHILDREN were TELLERS of the GOOD NEWS that JESUS SAVES! What would this world be like?  How many would come to a SAVING KNOWLEDGE of JESUS CHRIST?  Why aren’t ALL the TRUE CHILDREN of GOD as EXCITED as David?  Why aren’t we ALL TELLERS of the GOOD NEWS?  Have we LOST the JOY of our SALVATION?   Do we NOT have COMPASSION for LOST SOULS?

 

Maybe we have become APATHETIC to the cause of Christ.  We, who are the TRUE CHILDREN of GOD, need to REGAIN the JOY of our SALVATION, and get ALL EXCITED, and GO TELL somebody what the LORD has done for YOU, and can do the SAME for them too.  Jesus is COMING SOON, and We ALL should be about God’s business of BRINGING IN the LOST.  Are you WILLING? 

 

If you have NOT given your HEART and LIFE to God, then you are one of the LOST, who NEEDS to KNOW that you are headed for an ETERNITY in HELL, with ALL its HORRORS, and NO WAY of ESCAPE.  However, God has a PLAN, and I have some GOOD NEWS for you.  If you will TURN AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle and TURN TO GOD, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART.  And then CONFESS your sins to Him, and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS.  You MUST then BELIEVE, with ALL your HEART that, Jesus died for YOU, and is ALIVE in HEAVEN, making intercession for you, before God.  You MUST ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and He will SAVE you from an ETERNITY in HELL.  Then GET ALL EXCITED and become a TELLER of the GOOD NEWS.   Do this NOW, while you still can.  He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!

"From Dust to Dust:"


“From Dust to Dust”

 

Then the Lord God took dust from the ground and formed a man from it.   He breathed the breath of life into the man’s nose, and the man became a living person.         Genesis 2:7

You will turn back into the dust of the earth again, but your spirit will return to God who gave it.     Ecclesiastes 12:7

 

God had a DEVINE PLAN for the creation of man.  He formed man from the DUST of the earth or ground.   Some say that He made clay from the dust and like a POTTER, He fashioned man, to His liking then He BREATHED the BREATH of LIFE into the man’s nose.  And man became a LIVING PERSON.   In my research I found that man and the dust of the earth or ground, possess the same chemical elements, such as:   Oxygen, carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, calcium, phosphorous, potassium, sulfur, sodium, chlorine, magnesium, silicon.  With a trace of:  iron, fluorine, copper, zinc, aluminum, manganese, iodine, selenium, molybdenum, chromium, cobalt.  All of these are needed to keep the human body functioning properly. What a MIGHTY GOD and MASTER CREATOR, He is.

 

The Bible tells us that when the human body dies, it will turn BACK to DUST, but the spirit or breath of that human body will return to God, the One who gave it.  This is not referring to the time, when man is JUDGED BY GOD.  It is referring to the BREATH of man, which gives LIFE.  

 

Now when we think about this, we MUST ask the question about the destiny of mankind’s soul.  The Apostle Paul says that:  “to be away from the body and at home with the Lord.”  This is the destination for the TRUE BELIEVERS of the LORD JESUS CHRIST.  And what about those who REJECT Christ as their SAVIOR and LORD, “They, too, will drink the wine of God’s fury, which has been poured full strength into the cup of His wrath.   They will be tormented with burning sulfur in the presence of the holy angels and of the Lamb.  And the smoke of their torment will rise for ever and ever.”  This is the destiny for the UNBELIEVERS.  Which category are you in?

 

If you have NOT given your HEART and LIFE to God, then you are LOST and headed for an ETERNITY in Hell, with ALL of its HORRORS, and NO way of ESCAPE.  In order to CHANGE your destiny, you MUST TURN AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle, and TURN TO God with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART.  Then you MUST CONFESS your sins to Him and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS.  YOU MUST BELIEVE, with ALL your HEART that, Jesus died for YOU.  And that He is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God.  You MUST ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and ESCAPE HELL, with ALL its HORRORS, and GAIN HEAVEN with ALL its BLESSINGS.   Do it NOW while you still can.  He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!

"Always Be Prepared"


“Always Be Prepared”

 

But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord.  Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have.   But do this with gentleness and respect, keeping a clear conscience, so that those who speak maliciously against your good behavior in Christ may be ashamed of their slander.           1 Peter 3:15-16

 

As a TRUE CHILD of the LIVING GOD, you should ALWAYS REVERE Christ as Lord, in your HEART.   You SHOULD have a DEEP RESPECT for His standing, the fact that He is the Son of God.  He is also the King of kings, Lord of lords, and RULER of ALL MANKIND.  

 

In this world, in which we temporarily reside, MANY people don’t KNOW JESUS CHRIST, and furthermore, they don’t want to KNOW Him.  They are BLINDED SPIRITUALLY, and prefer to STAY that way.   God, in His INFINITE MERCY and AMAZING GRACE, wants to be able to bring SPIRITUAL SIGHT to them.  And He has decided to use His TRUE CHILDREN to do this.   As His Children, we SHOULD ALWAYS BE PREPARED to give an ANSWER to EVERYONE who asks us about the REASON for our HOPE.   In other words, we are to WITNESS to those who asks us WHY we have this HOPE.  Why do we BELIEVE, what we BELIEVE?   What is our HOPE based on?

 

Are you PREPARED to ANSWER such questions?  Can you DEFEND your HOPE and your FAITH?   Many will laugh at you and tell you that you are believing a fairy tale.  Are you PREPARED to SHARE your TESTIMONY of how you came to Jesus for the SALVATION of your soul?   Can you tell them about the DIFFERENCES in your LIFE, since Jesus came into your HEART?    And about the HOPE you have for spending an ETERNITY in HEAVEN, and ESCAPING HELL, with ALL its HORRORS?   This is YOUR TESTIMONY, and they cannot truly deny what happened to YOU. 

 

Peter tells us to do this with GENTLENESS and RESPECT.   And to be able to KEEP a CLEAR conscience, conducting yourself as a TRUE CHILD of GOD.   LIVING out your TESTIMONY, so those who would speak MALICIOUSLY against your GOOD BEHAVIOR in Christ, would become ASHAMED of their SLANDER.

 

If you have NOT given your HEART and LIFE to God, then you have NO HOPE, and will spend an ETERNITY in HELL, with ALL its HORRORS, and you will have NO WAY of ESCAPING.  You are SPIRITUALLY BLIND, but God has the ABILITY to give you SPIRITUAL SIGHT, if you will TURN AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle and TURN TO God with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART.  You MUST CONFESS your sins to Him and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS.  Then you MUST BELIEVE, with ALL your HEART that, Jesus died for YOU, and that He is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God.  Then you MUST ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and ALWAYS BE PREPARED to DEFEND your HOPE and FAITH.   Do this NOW, while you still can.  He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!

"DIE To Sins and LIVE For Righteousness"


“DIE To Sins and LIVE For Righteousness”

 

“He Himself bore our sins” in His body on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; “by His wounds you have been healed.”      1 Peter 2:24

 

We are living in a wicked, evil world, a world that is totally opposite of what God wanted for the Crown of His Creation, MANKIND.   Nevertheless, mankind has failed God, by their DISOBEDIENCE, and they continue to do so.  They LIVE SIN-SICK lives, and ignore and reject God’s plan.  They are playing right into Satan’s hands, and will be swept away to an ETERNITY in Hell, with NO WAY of ESCAPING.  They will be HOPELESSLY LOST FOREVER.

 

They REJECT the fact that Jesus Christ, took on ALL their sins, PAST, PRESENT, and FUTURE, He bore their sins, in His body on the cross.  He who knew NO sin, became sin, in order for SIN-SICK MANKIND to be FREE from THEIR sinfulness, to DIE to their own sins, and to LIVE for RIGHTEOUSNESS.  So they might LIVE for ALL of ETERNITY in HEAVEN.

 

“By His wounds you have been healed.”  This is NOT talking about PHYSICAL HEALING, but it is referring to SPIRITUAL HEALING.   He wasn’t BRUTALLY BEATEN and HUNG on a wooden cross, so mankind could be healed of PHYSICAL ailments.  He SUFFERED, BLED and DIED as a SACRIFICAL LAMB, so that mankind might be HEALED of their SIN-SICKNESS, which is a whole lot MORE IMPORTANT HEALING.   You can be HEALED of physical ailments, and one day you will still die a physical death.  Physical healing is TEMPORARY.  But if you aren’t SPIRITUALLY healed, which is PERMANENT, a FOREVER thing, you will be SUFFERING ALL the HORRORS of HELL for ALL of ETERNITY.  Is this your destiny?

 

Jesus suffered, bled, died, and was RESURRECTED, in order for YOU to DIE to your SINS and to LIVE for RIGHTEOUSNESS. He suffered so you could be HEALED of your SIN-SICKNESS.  In order for you to be MIRACULOUSLY HEALED of that dreadful, deadly disease of sin-sickness, you MUST TURN AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle, and TURN TO God, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART.  Then you MUST CONFESS your sins to Him, and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS.  Then BELIEVE, with ALL your HEART that, Jesus died for YOU, and that He is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God.  Then you MUST ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and DIE to your SINS and LIVE for RIGHTEOUSNESS.  Do this NOW, while you still can.  He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!

"Heart and Mouth"


“Heart and Mouth”

 

For it is with the heart that you believe and are justified, and with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.         Romans 10:10

 

There are two very important parts of the human body, which are essential in keeping the body ALIVE and functioning.  These two parts are also VERY IMPORTANT to our SPIRITUAL life.  The HEART keeps the blood flowing to the other organs and aids in the PROPER FUNCTIONING of the physical body.   If the HEART should STOP, the body would CEASE to function and it would DIE. 

 

In the SPIRITUAL BODY, the HEART produces FAITH, and because of FAITH, you BELIEVE, and are JUSTIFIED (set free from guilt).   FAITH and BELIEVING are very IMPORTANT to the SPIRITUAL BODY, because without them, one could NOT be SAVED from their sins, nor could they be SAVED from an ETERNITY in Hell, with ALL its HORRORS.   We NEED FAITH and BELIEVING in order to SURVIVE SPIRITUALLY.  

 

With our MOUTHS, the human body is nourished with FOOD and WATER.  With the MOUTH, we TALK or COMMUNICATE with each other.  Now, I know that there are other ways to be nourished and to communicate, but God designed our MOUTH for our benefit.  We can TASTE with our tongue, ALL the delicious foods and the tongue is housed in the MOUTH.  We can BREATHE air and also communicate with our mouths and that makes it convenient.   

 

PROFESSING with our MOUTH our FAITH, brings SALVATION to our sin-sick souls.  We have the ability to SHARE with others the GOOD NEWS that JESUS SAVES.  And they too can reap the benefits of SALVATION.   We CONFESS our sins to the Lord, with our MOUTH, and we PROFESS that He is LORD and SAVIOR for ALL mankind. 

 

Have you BELIEVED with your HEART, and been JUSTIFIED?  Are you PROFESSING with your MOUTH your FAITH?  If NOT you are headed for an ETERNITY in Hell, with ALL its HORRORS, and NO WAY of ESCAPE.   You MUST TURN AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle and TURN TO GOD with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART, in order to ESCAPE HELL.  And you MUST CONFESS your sins to Him, and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS.  Then you NEED to BELIEVE with ALL your HEART that, Jesus died for YOU, and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God.   Then you MUST ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and BELIEVE with ALL your HEART, and PROFESS with your MOUTH that JESUS CHRIST is LORD and SAVIOR of ALL mankind.   Do this NOW, while you still can.  He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!

"Who Are the Children of God?"


“Who Are the Children of God?”

 

For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the Children of God.

The Spirit Himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s Children.

Now if we are Children, then we are heirs---heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in His sufferings in order that we may also share in His glory.                                           Romans 8:14, 16, 17

 

I believe that many people have the misconception that ALL people are Children of God, because He created mankind.  And that, He did, but NOT ALL of mankind are Children of God.  The Apostle Paul tells us that CHILDREN of GOD are those who are LED by the SPIRIT of GOD.  In order to be LED by the SPIRIT of God, you MUST POSSESS the Spirit of God, and that comes through SALVATION.

 

When a person is DRAWN to God by God’s Spirit, they are given the opportunity to ACCEPT or REJECT God’s gift of SALVATION.   When they ACCEPT His gift, the SPIRIT of God comes and indwells that person and they become a Child of God.  When they REJECT His gift they remain LOST and an orphan (spiritually speaking).    

 

Paul tells us that the Spirit, Himself, testifies WITH our spirit that we are God’s Children.  This means that God’s Spirit bears witness along with our spirit that we are God’s Children. 

 

If we have become Children of God, through the act of SALVATION, then we are an HEIR of God and Co-heirs with Jesus Christ to ALL the riches of Heaven.  That is, IF we SHARE in His SUFFERINGS, in order to SHARE in His GLORY.  

 

As TRUE BELIEVERS we do from time to time find ourselves SUFFERING, because of our FAITH.  We are sometimes treated with ANIMOSITY, HATRED, and SCORN.  We are sometimes LIMITED in our MINISTRIES, and in EXTREME instances even face IMPRISONMENT and DEATH.  Children of God are those who are willing to TAKE-UP their CROSS and FOLLOW CHRIST. 

 

Now, can YOU, with ALL HONESTY say that you are a CHILD of GOD?  Have you given Him your HEART and LIFE?  If you have said “NO” to these questions, then YOU are LOST and on your way to an ETERNITY in Hell, with ALL of its HORRORS, and NO WAY of ESCAPE.  The ONLY WAY to ESCAPE Hell, is to:  TURN AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle, and TURN TO God, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART.  You MUST then CONFESS your sins to Him, and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS.  Then you MUST BELIEVE, with ALL your HEART that, Jesus died for YOU, and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God.  Then you MUST ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and be LED by His SPIRIT to become a Child of God.  Do this NOW, while you still can.  He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!

"Sold Out"


“Sold Out”

 

One thing I ask from the Lord, this only do I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze on the beauty of the Lord and to seek Him in His temple.          Psalms 27:4

 

King David was a man after God’s own heart, we can see that, by the words he penned in the “Book of Psalms”.    David was NOT ALWAYS spotless, free of any sins.  He was human and many times acted in the flesh.  He was like any other human being.  Many times he fell into temptation, headlong.  And he PAID for his transgressions, suffering the CONSEQUENCES of his sins.  He was CHOSEN by GOD to be King of Israel, and through the lineage of King David came the MESSIAH, SAVIOR of ALL MANKIND.  The One who is the ETERNAL KING of the UNIVERSE.  The One who will RULE over ALL mankind. The One who WILL RETURN to EARTH to REIGN throughout ETERNITY.  

 

Of ALL the things King David possessed, there was ONE THING he asked of the Lord God, not only did he ASK for it, but he SOUGHT AFTER it.  That ONE THING, was that he might DWELL or LIVE in the House of the Lord ALL the days of his life.  This DESIRE in David’s heart, exemplifies his FAITH.  It is SO HARD to get some to come to the House of the Lord, EVERY SUNDAY, much less, for them to DESIRE to be there more than ONE day a week.  Many people, who CLAIM to be a Child of God, think if they come Sunday morning, they’ve paid their dues.  Where is the DESIRE to be in God’s House, meeting with God’s Children, worshiping, and learning about God and His ways?  The ONLY difference between King David and you and me is, David was “SOLD OUT” to God and the THINGS of God.

 

He wanted to GAZE upon the BEAUTY of the Lord.  He wanted to STARE INTENTLY with AWE at the BEAUTY of the Lord God.  Do you ever take time to just be ALONE with God and to MEDITATE on His GREATNESS?  We have an ADVANTAGE, which David didn’t have.  We have the Holy Spirit dwelling within us, and OH, the WONDERFUL, MARVELOUS, BEAUTIFUL things He is waiting to reveal to us, if we will spend time ALONE with Him. 

 

King David, reiterates that he wishes to SEEK God in His temple.  We are the TEMPLE of God’s Holy Spirit.  We would NOT have to SEEK God in His temple, if we were TRULY “SOLD OUT” to Him.  The Holy Spirit did NOT indwell David, as He does the TRUE BELIEVER, today.  Do you ASK and SEEK to have MORE time with God?  Are YOU “SOLD OUT?”

If you have NOT given your HEART and LIFE to God, then you are LOST and headed for an ETERNITY in HELL, with ALL its HORRORS, and NO WAY of ESCAPE.  However, God has a PLAN for your destiny.  He wants YOU to be a part of His Family, and spend your ETERNITY in Heaven, with ALL its BLESSINGS.   You can do that by:  TURNING AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle, and TURNING TO God with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART.  Then you MUST CONFESS your sins to Him, and ASK Him for His FORGIVENESS. Then BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART that, Jesus died for YOU, and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you before God.  You MUST ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION and OPEN your HEART up to Him and be “SOLD OUT” to God.  Do this NOW, while you still can.  He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!

"Stand Firm!"


“Stand Firm!”

 

Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.  Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with readiness that comes from the gospel of peace.  In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.  Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God.                        Ephesians 6:12-17

 

We are living in PERILOUS times, in a DANGEROUS world.  One that is wrought with EVIL and WICKED schemes.  A world that is RIDDLED with demonic influences.  A world that is in conflict, GOOD vs EVIL, Satan’s minions vs God’s Children.  Because the Children of God is in battle, they MUST be PREPARED.  So God gives them instructions, through the Apostle Paul, on how they should PREPARE for battle.  The mandate is to STAND FIRM! 

 

In order to STAND FIRM, you MUST BE DRESSED for battle, with the FULL ARMOR of GOD.  You MUST have the BELT of TRUTH BUCKLED around your waist.  This is the basis of a BELIEVER’S FAITHFULNESS. The BELT of TRUTH gives FREEDOM and STABILITY.  Then you MUST put the BREASTPLATE of RIGHTEOUSNESS  IN PLACE, this BREASTPLATE is the RIGHTEOUSNESS of Jesus Christ, and will PROTECT the BELIEVER’S HEART from the assaults of Satan.  Next, is to have your FEET FITTED with the READINESS, which comes from the GOSPEL of PEACE.   This represents the STABILITY to STAND FIRM, which comes from the GOSPEL and it gives the BELIEVER PEACE, in order to STAND in the battle.

 

They SHOULD also TAKE UP the SHIELD of FAITH.  The STRONG, ABIDING FAITH of the BELIEVER can EXTINGUISH ALL the flaming arrows of the evil one.   They NEED to TAKE the HELMET of SALVATION and the SWORD of the SPIRIT, the last two pieces of armor to be added.  The HELMET Of SALVATION was a sense of safety, in protecting the mind, whenever attacked by the devil.  It is the assurance of the HOPE of SALVATION.  The SWORD of the SPIRIT is the “SPOKEN WORD of GOD, which is BENEFICIAL to the BELIEVER, when attacked by the devil.  The Spirit of GOD will bring to the mind of the BELIEVER, the WORD of GOD, which is MORE POWERFUL than a two-edged sword. 

 

This ARMOR will bring PROTECTION to the TRUE BELIEVER, in the PERILOUS TIMES in which we now live.  Are you in possession of such an armor?  Or are you one of Satan’s minions?  If you have NOT given your HEART and LIFE to GOD, then you are DOOMED and fighting a LOSING BATTLE.  You will end up spending ALL ETERNITY in Hell, with ALL its HORRORS, and NO way of ESCAPE.  In order to CHANGE your DESTINY, and become a TRUE CHILD of GOD, you MUST TURN AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle, and TURN TO God, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART.  You MUST CONFESS your sins to Him, and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS.  Then you MUST BELIEVE, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU and is ALIVE in HEAVEN, making intercession for you, before God.  Then you MUST ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and be able to STAND FIRM! in the BATTLE.  Do this NOW, while you still can.  He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
