OBEDIENCE LEADS TO SPIRITUAL GROWTH

To the pilgrims in this wild and wonderful world, for obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ: Grace to you and peace be multiplied (1 Peter 1:1-2).

Always remember that you have a choice to go through any open door. You have the choice to go with the crowd, or to swim upstream against the flow. You have the choice to change for the better. You have the choice to be clothed in His righteousness.

Take off your old worn out and no longer functional garments and put on the new! Don’t you know that physical growth is a function of time. Mental growth is a function of learning. Spiritual growth is a function of obedience to the One who was and who is and who is to come:

”Grace to you and peace from Him who is and who was and who is to come, and from the seven Spirits who are before His throne, and from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead, and the ruler over the kings of the earth. To Him who loved us and washed us from our sins in His own blood, and has made us kings and priests to His God and Father, to Him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen. Behold, He is coming with clouds, and every eye will see Him, even they who pierced Him. And all the tribes of the earth will mourn because of Him. Even so, Amen. ‘I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End,’ says the Lord, ‘who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty’” (Revelation 1:4-8 NKJV).

Scripture reveals that a person’s obedience leads to righteousness (alignment with His righteousness) for holiness’ sake: “What then? Shall we sin because we are not under law but under grace? Certainly not! Do you not know that to whom you present yourselves slaves to obey, you are that one’s slaves whom you obey, whether of sin leading to death, or of OBEDIENCE LEADING TO RIGHTEOUSNESS? God be thanked that though you were slaves of sin, yet you obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine to which you were delivered. And having been set free from sin, you became slaves of righteousness. I speak in human terms because of the weakness of your flesh. For just as you presented your members as slaves of uncleanness, and of lawlessness leading to more lawlessness, so now present your members as slaves of righteousness for holiness” (Romans 6:15-19 NKJV).

“If you choose to love sin, it will become your master, and it will own you and reward you with death. But if you choose to love and obey God, he will lead you into perfect righteousness… now surrender yourselves as servants of righteousness, which brings you deeper into true holiness.” (Romans 6:16,19 TPT).

Never ever forget that His generous and awesome grace has a purpose, and that purpose is obedience that brings honor to the Name above all names as well as empowering one’s own faith: “Through Him grace cascaded into us, empowering us with the gift of apostleship, so that we can win people from every nation into the obedience that comes from faith, to bring honor to His name” (Romans 1:5 TPT).

Obedience is love in action, and faith works by love: “For this reason I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, from whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man, that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height— to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God” (Ephesians 3:14-19 NKJV).

Give em heaven!!!

Kingdom Key for Melchizedek’s Appearing – Part 3.1 –Righteousness

Sapphire Throne Worship

Righteousness and justice are the foundation as well as the habitation of God’s throne; therefore, any establishment of God’s Government (i.e. His Kingdom) on earth will include these two elements. I’ve been hearing people quote Matthew 6:33 quite a bit lately: “But seek first the kingdom of God … and all these things shall be added to you,” except many times there’s something missing. The verse tells us to seek first the Kingdom of God AND His righteousness. Of all the things that could have been conjoined with seeking first God’s Kingdom, it is vital to understand that righteousness was chosen.

Let’s explore this essential element of the Kingdom of God that will remain (cannot be shaken). Please note that when one studies RIGHTEOUSNESS, it appears to be a mystery so vast and deep that it seems to go on forever. Due to “righteousness” being connected to the Eternal One and His throne, I bet it does.

Heads up! We are going to camp here for a while to receive some basic (often missing) ingredients for what it means to be called of God after the Order of Melchizedek – the King of Righteousness. Not only is righteousness a kingdom key for Melchizedek’s appearing, but wise virgins are being clothed in the bridal garment of righteousness as well.

Righteousness is about faith motivating us to do the right thing. It is not about activity, but a State of Being. Yet without the evidence of the deeds done out of the overflow of our purified hearts, righteousness does not exist. “Even a child is known by his deeds, whether what he does is pure and right” (Proverbs 20:11 NKJV). Romans 6 shows us that our loving, spirit-led obedience leads to righteousness, which leads to holiness.

One can think of the progressive steps of faith required to attain righteousness as: [1] faith in God [2] faith through God [3] faith of God. Faith in God or faith towards God is simply an elementary teaching of the Messiah. Devout hearts are called to move unto perfection (maturity). Please consider that it’s the “Word of Righteousness” spoken of in Hebrews 5:13 that reveals the way of “moving unto perfection” (Hebrews 6:1).

The Word of Faith is merely the initial door that we go through for salvation, which enables us to see God’s Kingdom: “He saved us not on the basis of deeds which we have done in righteousness, but according to His mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit, whom He poured out upon us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior” (Titus 3:5 NASB). Scripturally, it speaks of two more gateways that will not only allow believers to enter His Kingdom, but inherit it as well.

The reason that we know that righteousness is a State of Being is because the primitive root for the Hebrew word for righteousness ”tsadaq” literally means TO BE. Tomorrow, we will see how righteousness is even part of the protoplasm of the universe that aligns with life. For now, put a marker in your thinking cap to note that RIGHTEOUSNESS is NOT about salvation. It’s about maturity, eternal rewards and the essence of life.

“RIGHTEOUSNESS”

STRONG’s OT:6664 tsedeq (pronounced tseh’-dek) from OT:6663 the right (naturally, morally or legally); also (abstractly) equity :- x even, (x that which is altogether) just (-ice), right (-eous), (cause, -ly, -ness).

CAUSE: [1] a reason for action or condition: MOTIVE; [2] an agent that brings something about; [3] ground of legal action.

STRONG’s OT:6663 tsadaq (pronounced tsaw-dak’) * a primitive root * TO BE (causitively make) right (in a moral or forensic [suitable for courts of justice] sense) :- cleanse, clear self, (be, do) just (-ice, -ify, -ify self), (be, turn to) righteous (-ness).
