Everlasting Righteousness

Just long before I became a Christian,
I always thought that doing good things inorder to please
God was the best thing to do.
Boy, I was so wrong.
Because as I was consciously wanting to be good , inside and out
I became so pathetic and paranoid of my actions.
It was so stressful.
and then I asked God, how can be things so stressful
when I just wanted to feel your presence?

Deep within, I knew I was living a lie!

My faith in Him depended on how good my actions were.
If I sinned, I was doomed.
If things were right on me, I was safe.

The TRUTH is, if we believe in Jesus' works in the calvary.
We are clothed in His Righteousness FOREVER.

Yes ,

It's forever!

Because Jesus' came to save us from our own inconsistencies and lies!
God knew that we , with our self-efforts and "right" doings, can never ever
be perfect in this world.
That's why He sent Jesus, so we can become righteous and perfect forever
in His name.

Sharing another powerful message from Pastor Joseph Prince.
Enjoy your day with the new revelation, my friends.

Everlasting Righteousness

Daniel 9:24
24“Seventy weeks are determined for your people and for your holy city, to finish the transgression, to make an end of sins, to make reconciliation for iniquity, to bring in everlasting righteousness…

In Sunday, we hear a message that says, “I am the righteousness of God in Christ.” On Monday, we are still confessing, “I am the righteousness of God in Christ.” But come Wednesday or Thursday, we begin to confess our sins! Then, when Sunday comes, we get a fresh revelation of our righteousness in Christ and we start to confess our righteousness again. Why do we do that?

It cannot be that on Sunday, we are righteous. Then, a few days later, we become unrighteous because of sin, but are “re-righteoused” when Sunday comes again. No, our righteousness is an “everlasting righteousness”! Jesus has obtained “eternal redemption” for us. (Hebrews 9:12)

“But Pastor Prince, I have just sinned. How can I still be righteous?”

My friend, it is not what you do that makes you righteous. It is what Christ has done at Calvary. Romans 5:19 says, “For as by one man’s [Adam] disobedience many were made sinners, so also by one Man’s obedience many will be made righteous.” It is the obedience of one Man — Christ — and not your obedience, that has made you righteous!

God wants you established in what Christ has done. He wants you conscious of your everlasting righteousness in Christ. How do you do that? You can listen to anointed messages that remind you of your righteousness in Christ. And don’t just know it in your head. Speak it. Every morning, tell yourself, “I am the righteousness of God in Christ!” (2 Corinthians 5:21)

You don’t need a revelation of how sinful you are. You know it when you sin. The devil reminds you of your sins. Even your friends and loved ones sometimes point out your sins. What you need, instead, is a revelation of how forever righteous you are in God’s eyes, especially when you sin.

And when you are conscious of this gift of righteousness that is everlasting, you will reign in life! (Romans 5:17) You will reign over sin, bad habits, sicknesses, lack and everything that holds you back from a victorious life!
