When are we made Righteous?
Religions differ on this point, salvation itself hangs in the balance.
What is the gospel of Messiah?
God Himself came in the flesh, in the form of a man Yahushua (Yahuweh-saves [Jesus]). He gave up His life and became the propitiation (appeasement) for sin for us. Matthew, Mark, Luke, John
Thus our belief or faith in the truth of the gospel, and our confession of that by our mouth, we have salvation. Romans 10: 9-11
Well than when are we made righteous?
Romans 3:20 Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin. 21 But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested (revealed), being witnessed by the law and the prophets; 22 Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Yahushua Messiah unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference: 23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; 24 Being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Yahushua Messiah: 25 Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in His blood, to declare His righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God; 26 To declare, I say, at this time His righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Yahushua.
So, the moment that your confession is made with your mouth and in your heart, of faith in Yahushua’s sacrifice for us, you are justified and made righteous. Romans 10:10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness: and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
Romans 4:16 Therefore it is of faith, that it might be by grace; to the end the promise might be sure to all the seed; not to that only which is of the law, but to that also which is of the faith of Abraham; who is the father of us all,
Romans 5:19 For as by one man’s disobedience (Adam) many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one (Yahushua) shall many be made righteous.
Read all of ISAIAH 53 Justified and righteous.
When then am I sanctified (made Holy)? John 17:17 Sanctify them through thy truth: thy Word is truth. Ephesians 5:26 That He might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water and by the Word, 27 That He might present it to Himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle,…Hebrews 10:10 By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Yahushua Messiah once for all. Hebrews 10:12 But this man, after He had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down on the right hand of God; Hebrews 10: 14 For by one offering He hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified.
So we are made righteous, justified, and sanctified at the point of our belief and confession of Yahushua, Yahuweh-saves (Jesus) the gospel.
John 17:17-26 Sanctify them through the truth: thy Word is truth. 18 As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world. 19 And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth. 20 Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which believe on Me through their word; 21 That they all may be one; as thou Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent Me. 22 And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one: 23 I in them ,and thou in Me, that they may be made perfect in one; and the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved Me. 24 Father (Yahuweh), I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold My glory, which thou hast given Me: for thou lovedst Me before the foundation of the world. 25 O righteous Father (Yahuweh), the world hath not known thee: but I have known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent Me. 26 And I have declared unto them thy name (YAHUWEH) , and will declare it: that the love wherewith thou hast loved ME may be in them, and I in them.
How does Messiah get in you? How to eat the Bread of life? Drink the Living Waters?
John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. Romans 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God.
Do I still sin, stumble, make mistakes, of course. In Gods eyes I am as white as snow. I by the Word try to walk in the Spirit of God and not in the flesh Romans 8:1 and when I stumble: Hebrews 12:5b & Proverbs 3:11 My son, despise not the chastening of Yahuweh; neither be weary of His correction: Hebrews 12:6 For whom Yahuweh loveth He chastenth, and scourgeth every son whom He receiveth.
Psalm 44:18 When I said, My foot slippeth; thy mercy, O Yahuweh, held me up.
How do I defend against false doctrine and sin?
Ephesians 6:11 Put on the armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. [Read 12 &13]
Ephesians 6:14-18 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; 15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God: 18 Praying always with all supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints;
I have all those things by my faith that Yahuweh has given me. I don’t have to do or pay anyone or anything, He has done it for me. Isn’t grace a wonderful thing and we are so undeserving of it. His Word and His blood are so precious to us who are in Yahushua.
I praise you YAHUWEH, YAHUSHUA, HOLY SPIRIT Halle lu YAH.
