Righteousness – “Fraud” Day 20
Righteousness – Day 20 of the Fraud Committed by Satan Against Man
Adam trusted and believed the deception and fraudulent ways of Satan thus man lost their right standing with God (Righteousness) in the Garden of Eden.
Before you were born again and redeemed, you were born into the power of darkness. It is your ancestors’ (Adam and Eve) disobedience which caused you to be born with a self-centered selfish nature. Before you were saved, did a single righteous act make you righteous? If you performed many righteous acts did it make you righteous? No, you were still a sinner living in darkness under Satan’s rule.
Before being born again, as a sinner there are no number of righteous acts which can make you righteous.
For since [it was] through a man that death [came into the world, it is] also through a Man that the resurrection of the dead [has come]. 1 Corinthians 15:21
21 For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him. 2 Corinthians 5:21 NKJV
God has demonstrated HIS love for all mankind through giving HIS one and only Son to die for ALL sin once and for ALL. There is no sin which Jesus did not die for on the cross. There is no sin which He did not forgive.
Now as a born again, redeemed follower of Jesus Christ, it is also true because of what Christ Jesus did for all mankind there is no sin or amount of sin which will cause you to become a sinner again. You have been made righteous by the Lamb of God Jesus Christ. If Jesus’ death was not for all sin, HIS death and resurrection would not be complete. HE died for all sin.
This is not a license to sin; this is victory over sin and death. You have the righteousness of Christ in you. You are in Christ Jesus sitting at the right hand of God the father. Your righteousness is in Christ.
You have moved from the bondage of being a sinner (old nature) into the righteousness of Christ Jesus (new nature). Your identity/nature is in Christ Jesus completely forgiven and redeemed. You are the Righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. You are no longer under condemnation for those who live according to the Spirit.
□ You have been made righteous in Christ Jesus through HIS death and resurrection.
□ Your sins are no longer counted against you. God will remember them no more.
□ Your sins are forgiven, removed and forgotten as far as the east is from the west.
□ Your sins and unrighteous acts of lying, anger, hatred, unforgiveness, neglect, drunkenness, rebellion, disbelief, hard heart, disobedience, deceitfulness, manipulation, sexual sins, immorality, abortion, selfishness, lust, craving, boasting, and idol worship of this world have been washed clean by the blood of the sacrificial LAMB Jesus Christ.
Jesus Christ legally and judicially restored you back to your legal family as a Child of God in the image and likeness of God. You have all the legal rights and privileges as a son or daughter of God. You are BLESSED. You have life abundantly. You have the mind of Christ and the Wisdom of God living in you.
