Called to be Righteous!

Did you know we can be RIGHTEOUS??? The world and satan would like to beat us down and say we can not obtain "righteousness" but why would our loving God call us to be righteous if we cant obtain it???
I have found 93 scriptures that mention righteousness. Many talk about Gods righteousness and we should note these as calls to reflect His righteousness.
BUT THERE ARE 64 SCRIPTURES that call US to BE righteous!!! So if you are saved and are following Gods ways in your life you can be righteous!. Yes we sin and then we repent and we can STRIVE FOR RIGHTEOUSNESS. It is a blessing, it brings blessings. It is on my heart to live RIGHTEOUSLY.... not because it saves me but BECAUSE I FOUND RIGHTEOUSNESS IN HIM because HE SAVED ME and I want my life to reflect my hearts desire.
We are being refined, tested and equipped here on earth. For what you might ask???? To prepare us for the Millennium. The 1000 years were we will be teaching others what we have learned so they too can be equipped to overcome satan when he is let out one last time.....
We will not be perfect but in Him we are "made white as snow" and righteous in His eyes THROUGH REPENTANCE. Repentance is recognizing our sin, being whole-heart sorry and then turning from sin. Conquering sin!! Overcoming temptations. Being stronger than our fleshly desires. Turning to prayer and study so that we can grow and continue to conquer, overcome.
Better is never to have sinned than to have to repent. When we overcome we have less sin and less to repent for. Sin becomes less attractive, easier to turn from.
Hey if all you want is a comfortable religious experience here, go for it. But as for my hearts desire I want to do what is pleasing to the Lord and have eternal benefits, rather than live now for comfort and pleasure.
Seek FIRST the KINGDOM of GOD!! and all other (things worth having like eternal life with God) will be added unto you.
None of us will enter the Kingdom of God if our hearts are clinging to the things of the world. It is very clear in scripture what God wants us to strive for and what He commands us to stay away from. Pray with all your heart that He reveals to you how to go from Glory to Glory... how to grow closer to Him in each new lesson you learn, sin you overcome and experience you share in Him. Shalom

Gods Law of perfection or mans laws of injustice?

If Gods standards (the Law) were to be done away with, why then did Jesus (Yeshua) come to give a better interpretation?

If He came to establish a new way, why bother showing us the faults in the old system?
Out of the 613 commands of God, we are to STILL observe 271. (613 less the ones pertaining to the temple, sacrifices and priestly duties)  A closer look at the 271 reveals that many of them can be summarized in the 10 or even the 2 as commanded by Yeshua when He was on earth. 

The 271 do not add burden but CLARIFY what is meant in the "summed up" versions of the 10 and 2.  Remember Yeshua (Jesus) was talking to JEWS who knew the ENTIRE old testament (likely completely and by heart).  So when Yeshua spoke, He only needed to touch or start" a topic and the deciples and other followers and even the crowds KNEW the story in full. 

Just because HE did not speak the details or the writes of the NT did not write the details does not mean we are to discard the details.  The details are what can prevent us from staying confused in the "grey area" of how to live a Godly and Holy life!

There is NOTHING scary, burdensome or difficult for us as believers to follow these “instructions” on how to live a life set apart (Holy!) To LIVE in PEACE and LOVE.

Anyone who claims HE did away with the law understands it to be burdensome or is not familiar with what they actually are, what they say and what they accomplish.

IF we did follow Gods instructions we would be a people who LOVE their God with all our hearts, minds and actions. NOT ONE of the commandments are burdensome to those who LOVE Elohim (God) and Lord of all Creation!

We must "adjust" our hearts and minds to Gods System of Government because that is EXACTLY what will be established in the Millennium and eternity!

Cast away your hurts and pains of this world governments and justice.... for the Rule of God will be Perfect and Just!

One more thing... as gentiles we are not OBLIGATED to keep the feast.  But do we want to lives having one foot in the Truth and the other foot in the world?  To help keep us clean and separate from the world, God gave us everything we need to live life fully.  The Holy Days, Feasts, even Sabbath helps us and protects us as we strive to cut off the influence of satan through the lies he feeds the world.  Shalom and keep striving for Holiness!
