Day 19

January 25th, 2013
Now, let’s move to the second truth found in Romans 5:17, as we continue our study of the authority of the believer to reign in life. This, also, must be accurately operating in our lives; the free gift of righteousness. Romans 5: states “…surely will those who receive [God’s] overflowing grace (unmerited favor) and the free gift of righteousness [putting them into right standing with Himself] reign as kings in life through the one Man Jesus Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One).” The key word I would like to bring to your attention is “accurately.” These truths must be accurately, or “free from error or defect,” in their operation in our lives. The reason I put it this way is to be certain that our understanding and revelation comes specifically from the Word, so, as mentioned earlier, our foundation is on the Solid Rock.

The truth of righteousness has taken different forms over the history of the church. Most Christians see righteousness simply as “right-doing, or doing right.” Whereas that is a “fruit” of righteousness, it is not the “root” of what righteousness actually, and accurately, is. Therefore allowing the Bible to interpret the Bible, Romans 5:17 quite accurately gives us a true meaning. The verse states, from the Amplified version, it:
• is a FREE GIFT
• puts man into right standing with God.

Trust me, the revelation of righteousness will ALWAYS keep you in the race, in the battle, and on a victorious path. Without the revelation of these two basic meanings of righteousness (which the Holy Spirit wants you to have right now), it will be easier for your house to crumble in any attack and storm of life which will come, because of “sand” in your foundation.

However, before we go any further, allow me to submit to you the chief cornerstone of the revelation of righteousness. Righteousness is a Person, and His name is Jesus. Yes, righteousness is a truth of scripture. Yes righteousness is a free gift. But more than anything else, righteousness is a Person. • “But it is from Him that you have your life in Christ Jesus, Whom God made our Wisdom from God, [revealed to us a knowledge of the divine plan of salvation previously hidden, manifesting itself as] our Righteousness [thus making us upright and putting us in right standing with God], and our Consecration [making us pure and holy], and our Redemption [providing our ransom from eternal penalty for sin]” (1Corinthians 1:30).• “For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him” (2Corinthians 5:21).
Beloved, Jesus is our everything! It is my prayer for all of us to get a deeper revelation of the Beauty of our Wonderful Savior Jesus, and that we may be able to say as Paul “I myself no longer live, but Christ lives in me. So I live my life in this earthly body by trusting in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me” (Galatians 2:20).
