God's righteousness in demonstration....

I saw one hanging on a tree
In agonies and blood,
Who fixed his languid eyes on me,
As near His cross I stood.

Sure never til my latest breath,
Can I forget that look;
It seem'd to charge me with His death,
Though not a word He spoke.

My conscience felt, and own'd the guilt,
And plung'd me in despair;
I saw my sins His blood had split,
And help'd to nail Him there.
Another look He gave, which said,
"I freely all forgive,
This blood is for thy ransom paid,
I die that thou mayest live."
- John Newton

This is the righteousness of God!

This is what my hope is placed in.

My hope is not placed in the government, or man, or even the president.

My hope is in God.

Where is your hope?

Is your hope placed in Jesus Christ?

One can see the righteousness of Christ more clearly when you see that God was in Christ, even on the cross, reconciling those that are His unto Himself.

There was no other way in which it could have been done!

Jesus Christ in His sinless living climbed upon that cross for you and me, my friend.

When Jesus came out of the grave, manifest Himself to show that He had triumphed over death.

When He ascended to the right hand of the Father.

All of the acts are found in the righteousness of God.

This is where our salvation comes from - through the righteousness of God in Christ.

"For ye were dead and your life is hid with Christ in God." Colossians 3:3

Right there is the righteousness in God.

When the Holy Spirit convicts one of their sin, it is because of the righteousness of God.

The conviction is through what God has done for us.

We cannot save ourselves.

We cannot atone for sin.

We cannot redeem the world.

We cannot make right what is wrong, pure or impure, or what is holy or unholy.

Only the Sovereign God can do all those acts.

He already has made the perfect atonement.

The redemption of Christ is not an experience, it is an act that was performed when Jesus went to the cross.

Our Lord and Saviour died for you, do not be afraid to trust Him who loved you enough to die for you.

The Holy Spirit is the interpreter of God's Word.

The Bible is the eloquent tongue of the Holy Spirit.

If you my friend, have any fears as to the outcome of the Kingdom of God and of His righteousness, you simply do not know your Bible.

The prince of this world has already been judged, already condemned.

The serpent has already received the mortal wound upon his head.

"And the God of peace shall bruise satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen." Romans 16:20

Regardless of what happens in the world, I am not going to be a pessimist.

I am simply going to look to Jesus.

Let all the nations collapse and fall.

Let America fall.

The reason that America will/has fallen is that we have taken God out of our lives.

We are no longer to pray in school, they have taken the ten commandments out of the public view, they even have taken "in God we trust" off the new money.

No wonder we are in such a pickle.

There should not be anything that can shake your faith.

Whatever happens, I pray that my faith will hold strong, the harder that it is shaken.

When all happens, and it will, everything will point to God.

It will demonstrate the fact that the Holy Spirit is still seeking to convict the depraved human race; and that the prince of this world is condemned.

"And when He is come, He will convict the world of sin..." John 16:8 Ryrie Version
