I pray that you all are working hard at walking in righteousness. It’s important for us to stand on our foundation of Faith and trust in the Lord with all out heart. our righteousness is canopied by our faith. our faith in our Prayers, our faith in our praise and our faith in our walk.
Let’s get in to Scripture!
Isaiah 64:6 – But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.
The topic for this blog “sinning ain’t winning” comes from the Holy spirit teaching me about the righteous walker, the servant of God speaking God’s word and sinning. They will have to go before the Lord for judgement.
When we walk in righteousness we are to obey the laws of God. some have made the statement “when Jesus came from his throne died, rose and ascended he washed us and the commands have been taken away.” Not true! lets try our best not to adlib the word of God for our own personal purpose. Matthew 22:38 -This is the first and greatest commandment in the Law. Look at the word is used in present tense if the Law was over the word used would be Was. Let us also remember that Jesus was with out sin because He himself lived His life by the commands of the Law.
Now what he did do was add another one that was really there in the first place. which is Love your neighbor as yourself Matthew 22:39 here’s why I say it was already there commandments 5- 10 has everything to do with loving and respecting your neighbor. Glory be to God! for assigning us help and to be helpers. Let’s get back to righteousness and sinning.
So when we are not respecting each other or putting God first that means; spending more time with Him then we spend with our TV’s; being obedient to the appoint time of fellowship that He assigns with you (for some of us that means rising at 5 am); watching how we speak ( the power of Life and death) and following the commands. when we are not following the commandments we become filthy and start to look like Joshua when he went before the angels of God in Zechariah 3:1-5
Zechariah 3:1-5 tells us that the vision showed Joshua before the angels of the Lord filthy and satan at his right side to accuse him. my question to you righteous Man/woman are you willing to let Satan stand at your judgement?
The filthy rags is symbolic to our righteous acts while we are in sin (Isaiah 64:6) now that this word was brought to light and you have been admonished are you willing to ask for forgiveness and start to stand in Zechariah 3:4-5.
If you are ready for a change and God to assign for your garments to be changed, let’s go to psalms 51:1 -12 we ask the Lord to forgive us of our sins and iniquities, we ask the Lord our God to wash us white as snow with hyssop, we ask the Lord our God to hide his face from our past sin and blot out all of our iniquities. to create in us a pure heart and renew a steadfast spirit with in us. We proclaim with our mouth that Jesus is Lord and we believe with our hearts that he died and in three days rose with all power, we give thanks to the Lord our God for our Salvation in Jesus Amen
Glory be to God for those who have read and agreed with their hearts welcome to the family of God. I pray that this word helped you all to understand why it is important not to allow the things of this day to hold you from what God has ordered over your life.
Join in tomorrow we will continue to glean on righteousness and cleanliness we will be jumping into the psalms 51
