This is what He said to me this afternoon for you, “There’s a shadow over everything if you’re not standing in the perfect light (righteousness) of Christ”. 💐
Righteousness is a gift to be believed and received, not to be worked for. Don’t forget that. You will NEVER be sufficient or pleasing to Him in the flesh and to think so will bring darkness over everything in our lives, by right. Satan flees from only One! THE righteous One we’re hidden in BY FAITH. When we stand hidden in His light (righteousness), there is no place for darkness (sin and death). Jesus said these words “My enemy comes but he has NO place in me”. AND WE ARE COMPLETE IN HIM!
Like Able, a spotless Lamb was the only acceptable sacrifice that would satisfy the Father and like Cain, the works of his hands were rejected. For us, it’s faith (wholehearted trust) in the Passover blood of Jesus (the spotless Lamb) that protects us and releases His blessing upon our lives. We do good because He is good. We love Him because He first loved us and we are received by Him because of our faith in Jesus and His righteous sacrifice, not because we’re good.
Without faith it is impossible to please Him, for He who comes to God MUST believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek (relationship with) Him. Submit to God (His righteous gift in Christ) resist the devil and He WILL FLEE. It’s the light of Christ that sends him running, not our goodness or our own righteousness..
If the blood of a bull cleansed the worshippers of God for a full year. What will the blood of the eternal covenant do for you? Believe it, trust the author and finisher of your faith and you will walk in the LIGHT and the wicked one will touch you not. You will walk out of the weakness (sins) of the flesh and into the glorious liberty of the Sons of God. Amen!
Don’t be bewitched by thinking you can do anything without Him. Let JESUS finish what He began in you. 😉 Galatians 3
No flesh will glory in His Presence and say to Him, “but Lord didn’t I?” To which He will respond “I never knew you”. When it’s your righteousness you trust in or your works, it’s also yours sins you’ll bear before Him on that day”. Jesus will profit us nothing if we seek justification in ANYTHING other than what was already given, (The blood of His cross). Be free and believe in His gospel and you’ll see freedom and victory come to what you struggle to become, without Him. HE LOVES US THAT MUCH!
Strengthen your foundation and you’ll strengthen the whole house! ❤️
