Matthew 6:33“But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”
Ephesians 5:9“For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;”
Ephesians 4:30“And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.”
I have often gone to the Heavenly Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, in prayer based on my righteousness to receive a judgement without result. Then to realize by the Spirit of God, that my righteousness nor that of the Pharisees nor that of the contemporary “Church” is good enough. On one occasion the Lord Jesus told me He could not accept the prayer and then instructed me on the basis of His Righteousness after which He accepted the prayer, and the answer was instant.
When Christ died on the Cross, a great exchange was made, our sins for His righteousness; this can only be accepted by faith in Jesus. With this inherited Righteousness all things are Amen in Christ Jesus. The just is justified by faith, living out our lives before God the Father daily in holiness and righteousness.
If such a Righteousness is an inheritance, what manner of people should be?
Living daily in great gratitude, faith, thanksgiving, mercy, forgiveness and joy?
What manner of speech before God the Father should be ours?
Yes, our inheritance of Christ: The “Inherited Righteousness of Christ by Faith” and the inheritance of holiness “Indwelling of The Holy Spirit for those who Believe in Jesus Christ”.
Many seek unity, no unity can be had on earth except for the common indwelling of the Holy Spirit; This indwelling of the Holy Spirit (the Spirit of God) is the (united) Kingdom of God.
The world can never have unity, for the enemy of the souls of men comes to steal, kill and destroy primarily through division, confusion and lies. The enemy of our souls’ kingdom has a foundation of Lies; it is the Lies we believe that enslave us and keep us captive. The Truth we believe frees us; Jesus Christ said that the Holy Spirit will bring us to all truth.
“Christ” means “the Anointed One”. What is His Anointing? Who Conceived the Anointed One (Word made Life)”? The Holy Spirit is the Anointing, Spirt of God, One with God, God in man, God gifts Himself to man through the inherited Righteousness of Christ.
This why the bible says, “Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace.” Through the law, man creates a legalistic system based on our inadequate good of unrighteousness.
We were created by Love for Love, that is why evil, and sin are cancers, sickness, hurting, pain and death to us; We were not designed for sustained evil; the light of our inheritance in Jesus will dispel all evil; Our inheritance in Jesus is Righteousness (The Cross and Resurrection) and Holiness (The Holy Spirit). The Just shall live by Faith and Belief.
Without the inheritance of Christ there can be no Revival; Many say they believe but forsake the righteousness of Christ and some say they have Faith but resist the Holy Spirit, others desert the water of repentance unto sanctification.
1 John 5:8 “And there are three that bear witness on earth: the Spirit, the water, and the blood; and these three agree as one.”
James 3:16“For where envy and self-seeking exist, confusion and every evil thing are there.”
