I heard, “I AM dealing wondrously with you this season!”
Greater glory is manifesting upon us! The attempts on hearts is to shut us out of manifesting greater glory! Keep moving forward, greater results awaits you!
There is something about The Righteousness of God. The truth is that one of the hardest things to do is to keep ourselves from condemnation and staying fully aware that we are righteous.
I have personally suffered from condemnation so much, that if God had not given to me a revelation of righteousness, I would have disqualified myself from the ministry. In my life I used to feel condemned about almost everything. Whether right or wrong.
The enemy is highly against our understanding of this subject to its fullness, because it disarms his accusations, and sets us up on The Throne. Righteousness, is what Jesus uses to rule….
“But unto the Son he saith, ‘Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a Sceptre of Righteousness is the sceptre of Thy Kingdom,” Hebrews 1:8 emphasis added.
A sceptre is a symbol of power and authority and in God’s kingdom it is made of righteousness. So Ruling in The Kingdom, is established by righteousness.
This is why, if you are not fully established in the revelation of righteousness walking in your authority and power, becomes difficult.
A lot of people still think righteousness can be earned; they think its observation of some laws. They think you are righteous by what you do, but it is on the contrary.
They are 613 laws in The Bible and I am yet to find one genuine person who can attempt keeping them.
Because of the importance of righteousness, Jesus had to come down and fulfill The Law and give us righteousness as a gift, so we can have the power and authority to reign in life.
“For if by one man’s offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ,” Romans 5:17 emphasis added.
Notice it says when we receive the irrevocable gift of righteousness we reign in life. Righteousness is a gift. It is not a work you do to earn a blessing from God. The Sceptre of Righteousness — which is the authority and power of The Kingdom — is given to us as a gift.
Observe that the above verse does not say ‘those who receive a balanced kind of grace’ but they which ‘receive abundance of grace and THE gift of righteousness,’ shall reign in life by Christ Jesus.
When we are reigning in the life of Jesus, sickness is not reigning, poverty is not reigning, but the abundant life of Jesus is reigning through the irrevocable gift of righteousness.
Why do I say it is irrevocable? We will continue tomorrow…
The truth is, that many of us know about righteousness. We confess we are righteous, but still feel condemned at every little mistake — even when we do good.
This is because there is a difference between knowledge and understanding. Understanding brings establishment. We will, by the Holy Spirit, try to understand how we are righteous and enjoy the fruits in our tomorrow’s discussion…
In an encounter with The LORD, I saw a Christian whose stuff was taken. He was very worried and anxious. But suddenly I saw these things which were taken, were brought back to him with little or no efforts
“And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpiller, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you. And ye shall eat in plenty, and be satisfied, and praise the name of The LORD your God, that hath dealt wondrously with you: and my people shall never be ashamed,” Joel 2:25-26.
Then The LORD said; “Do not be anxious, it is your hour of restoration. I AM restoring the years of your suffering.
I AM aware of all you go through, but I saw to you by My Grace, double blessings come to you.
I say no more shame — for you are being satisfied with My Abundance. I AM dealing wondrously with you this season.”
Blessings in Christ,
