A REVELATION in RIGHTEOUSNESS.....deno.
1 Corinthians 1:26-31....King James Version (KJV)
26 For you see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called:
27 But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise ones of the world; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;
28 And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are:
29 That no flesh (No Person) should glory in his presence (about anything of himself).
30 But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who by God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:
31 That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.. (Let him gory in the things Jesus has done for him (Thru the Cross and in what God has made Jesus to be for him in the form of grace and FREE GIFTS)..
.......In our above text we read THESE wonderful words. Words of revealed things, of doctrinal truths that Jesus personally REVEALED to Paul about HIS GOOD NEWS (Gospel)...No normal person and no institution made by man taught these things, these truths to Paul..Paul said, of the things I write, Jesus Christ HIMSELF REVEALED THEM and TAUGHT THEM TO ME...Friends just that statement alone TURNS ME ON and makes my spirit reach heavenward.
.......Paul wrote in vs 30 that it is GOD HIMSELF, yes God the HIGHEST AUTHORITY FAR ABOVE ALL, that has MADE Jesus to be FOR US our RIGHTEOUSNESS. Think about that; God, our loving God, loved us SO MUCH that seeing our personal righteousness was as filthy rags and completely unacceptable and filled with spots, wrinkles, and blemishes, He loved us ANYWAY and chose to bless us with this incredible GIFT. The gift of making Jesus to be for us OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS. IT IS THE GIFT OF GOD.
......Now get this glorious truth with me. Lets grasp the glory of its redemption meaning....Christ RIGHTEOUSNESS is now our RIGHTEOUSNESS and God made Jesus to be FOR US our RIGHTEOUSNESS as a GIFT. It is a provision from God.
......Christ RIGHTEOUSNESS is a PERFECT RIGHTEOUSNESS and always TOTALLY ACCEPTABLE to the Father (ALWAYS) and His Righteousness if now OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS as Gods free GIFT unto us. This is the power of God and His Sons RIGHTEOUSNESS unto us and working FOR US (Always PERFECT and Always ACCEPTABLE..You need to repeat what was just said until its glory DAWNS ON YOU.
......TRULY TRULY God himself making Jesus to be for us OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS IS GOD BEING INCREDIBLY GOOD AND MERCIFUL TO YOU and I A SINNER.
.......Lord Jesus, I hide all myself in YOU, inside all of YOU....I lay all my foolish pride aside. I lay all dependency on my own self goodness or self righteousness aside and now I LEAN TOTALLY ON YOU YOURSELF BEING (As God said for me) MY RIGHTEOUSNESS .
......As Noah was HID inside the ARK and was saved, I AM NOW HIDING THE ALL OF MYSELF IN YOU JESUS TO BE SAVED with you yourself the PERFECT ONE being my life, my salvation, and the Lord My RIGHTEOUSNESS...IT IS THE GIFT OF GOD.....AMEN...(Colossians 3:1-4)...deno.
