Righteousness! It is time the church lived what it stands for!
At the beginning of the year we often take time to reflect and set goals for what we plan to do throughout the new year. Many people set goals for weight loss, to get a better job, to have a child, to reach out to others through charity work, or to save a little money. These are great goals but I would like to suggest something even more important for our faith and for reaching out to others. Standing for righteousness should be our goal. Why should we stand in righteousness? Take a look all around you and you will see the answers to that question. Families are being torn apart through abuse, neglect, adultery and divorce. Countries are being torn apart through war, rumors of war, famine, tyranny, and terrorism. Pollution is killing animals, making people ill, and changing the atmosphere of the earth that the Lord has created. Children are on the street instead of in schools, and when the are in schools we fear for their safety. We as believers in Yeshua (Jesus our Lord) must begin to live our lives as lights unto this dying world. How can we do this? By living our lives in righteousness and sharing the love that the Lord has so graciously bestowed on us. Yeshua said to his disciples in Matthew 10:8 "Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out demons. Freely you have received, freely give."
In 2003 the Lord had given me two key teachings on standing in righteousness. Originally I had labeled them Righteousness 2003 but I have change the title slightly as these teachings were not just for 2003. They are for every year and every generation.
I pray that this teaching will be a blessing to all and that it will inspire you to lead lives of righteousness and love for the Lord. I will add to the teachings on righteousness as the Lord provides the teachings. I would like to also list some examples of righteousness that people have submitted to me. If you have an example of someone standing for righteousness please email me with a paragraph on the person or persons you would like to submit. I may want to ask you more questions so please include an e-mail address where I can contact you. Please submit firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you all for visiting this site and may you walk in the righteousness and love of the Lord our God throughout your life!
Proverbs 2 1. My son, if you receive my words, and treasure my commands within you, 2. so that you incline your ear to wisdom, and apply your heart to understanding; 3. yes, if you cry out for discernment, and lift up your voice for understanding, 4. If you seek her as silver, and search for her as for hidden treasures; 5. then you will understand the fear of the Lord, and find the knowledge of God. 6. For the Lord gives wisdom; from His mouth come knowledge and understanding; 7. He stores up sound wisdom for the upright; He is a shield to those who walk uprightly; 8. He guards the paths of justice, and preserves the way of His saints. 9. Then you will understand righteousness and justice, equity and every good path.
