God’s Righteousness is Revealed Primarily in Jesus Christ

Romans 3:21-22

21 But now the righteousness of God apart from the law is revealed, being witnessed by the Law and the Prophets, 22 even the righteousness of God, through faith in Jesus Christ, to all and on all who believe. For there is no difference;

 

Isaiah 11:2-5

2 The Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon Him,

The Spirit of wisdom and understanding,

The Spirit of counsel and might,

The Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord.

3 His delight is in the fear of the Lord,

And He shall not judge by the sight of His eyes,

Nor decide by the hearing of His ears;

4 But with righteousness He shall judge the poor,

And decide with equity for the meek of the earth;

He shall strike the earth with the rod of His mouth,

And with the breath of His lips He shall slay the wicked.

5 Righteousness shall be the belt of His loins,

And faithfulness the belt of His waist.

 

Jeremiah 23:6

6In His days Judah will be saved,

And Israel will dwell safely;

Now this is His name by which He will be called:

THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS

 

Zechariah 9:9

9“Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion!

Shout, O daughter of Jerusalem!

Behold, your King is coming to you;

He is just and having salvation,

Lowly and riding on a donkey,

A colt, the foal of a donkey.

 

Acts 3:14

14 But you denied the Holy One and the Just, and asked for a murderer to be granted to you,

 

Romans 10:4

For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes.

 

1 Corinthians 1:30

30 But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God—and righteousness and sanctification and redemption

 

2 Peter1:1

1Simon Peter, a bondservant and apostle of Jesus Christ,

To those who have obtained like precious faith with us by the righteousness of our God and Savior Jesus Christ:

 

1 John 2:1

My little children, these things I write to you, so that you may not sin. And if anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous.

 

God’s righteousness is revealed in the gospel

Romans 1:17

17 For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “The just shall live by faith.”

 

Philippians 3:9

and be found in Him, not having my own righteousness, which is from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which is from God by faith;

 

 

God gives his righteousness to believers

Romans 4:22-24

22 And therefore “it was accounted to him for righteousness.”

23 Now it was not written for his sake alone that it was imputed to him, 24 but also for us. It shall be imputed to us who believe in Him who raised up Jesus our Lord from the dead,

 

Genesis 15:6

And he believed in the Lord, and He accounted it to him for righteousness.

 

Job 33:26

26He shall pray to God, and He will delight in him,

He shall see His face with joy,

For He restores to man His righteousness.

 

Hosea 10:12

12Sow for yourselves righteousness;

Reap in mercy;

Break up your fallow ground,

For it is time to seek the Lord,

Till He comes and rains righteousness on you.

 

Romans 3:22; 4:3-8; 5:17; 10:4

3:22 even the righteousness of God, through faith in Jesus Christ, to all and on all who believe. For there is no difference;

 

4:3 For what does the Scripture say? “Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness.” Now to him who works, the wages are not counted as grace but as debt.

But to him who does not work but believes on Him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is accounted for righteousness, just as David also describes the blessedness of the man to whom God imputes righteousness apart from works:

7“Blessed are those whose lawless deeds are forgiven,

And whose sins are covered;

8 Blessed is the man to whom the Lord shall not impute sin.”

 

5:17 For if by the one man’s offense death reigned through the one, much more those who receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ.

 

10:4 For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes.

 

2 Corinthians 5:21

21 For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.

 

 

This is what non-Christians and religions other than Christianity do not have. They do not have Jesus Christ (who is the power of God), who created the church and gave Jews and gentiles in His church the hope of glory. The others also do not have Jesus to represent us before God or a way to God’s heaven.

God is testing us every day and has given us the right to make our own choices. Do you know which ones are the right choices in Gods mind?

Fear God, love God, honor God, and trust God with all your heart, mind and soul and you will receive and experience the joy of the promises of God’s blessings in His time.
