RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD
BEGINNING.ENDING.GENTILE.DISPENSATION_ JEFF.IN SUNDAY_ 55-0109E, E-47 See, we come out of eternity. We was before there was a world. Did you know that? God made man in His own image. "Where was you," He said to Job when Job thought he had some wisdom. Said that, "Where was you when I laid the foundation of the world--before I laid it? When the sons of God sang together and the morning star shouted for joy." The morning star shouted for joy. Them shining ones shouted for joy when they seen that some day through a tabernacle here on earth, and the King Melchisedec would come in the righteousness of God and give His Life to redeem us to God back again, and outshine the stars forever and ever.
RECONCILIATION.THROUGH.FELLOWSHIP_ STURGIS.MI FRIDAY_ 56-0120, E-33 And let me give you a little bit of scientific something. You can take a red, purely, genuine, red glass, and look through it at a red object, and red through red looks white. Figure it out. God, looking through the Blood of Christ to a red sinner, is white as snow. "Though your sins be red like crimson, they shall be white like snow."
God knew what He was doing when He looked through the Blood of the innocent to the guilty that's bloody red, and He sees him white. Not because he's righteous, but because he's accepted the righteousness of God through Christ, and become reconciled back to fellowship again with God. Not because something that you do, some good deeds... That's all right. You do the good deeds because you are a believer, but that doesn't do it by good deeds. Joining church is all right, but that isn't what does it. It's when you recognize that you're a sinner, lost, and the only way that God can see you righteous is through the Blood of Jesus Christ. Then when He sees you through the Blood of Jesus, He sees you as innocent as His own Son, Christ Jesus was. That's the Gospel story, friend. Believe that, accept that, and worship through that, you can have what you ask for. God said, so. Yes, sir.
WHEN.DIVINE.LOVE.IS.PROJECTED_ LIMA.OH SATURDAY_ 57-0126E, E-66 O God, this is the hour; this is the time, that wherever many hands has went up... They're sincere, Lord. And I as Your servant, I'm interceding for them. I'm asking mercy. God grant it. And may they all be saved and filled with the Holy Spirit. And may the love of God that's shed abroad by the Holy Spirit fill each heart. And may they walk out of this building with all of their grudges and their differences all done away with.
We know that sin is black and dark, but the utmost parts of the sins could only be a drop, as if it falls from an ink dropper into a great big tub of bleach. Try to find it again. Oh, it could not be found. When ink is dropped into the bleach, the ink will, ink becomes bleach. And when the unrighteousness of a penitent sinner drops into the Blood of the Righteous, they become the righteousness of God. Jesus, we take Your Word for it. Thy Word is forever true.
When you said, "He that heareth My Word, believeth on Him that sent me, hath Everlasting Life, and shall never come to the judgment, but's passed from death unto Life..." And I pray, as only a servant could do, for each hand that went up. Thou knowing their heart, will give to them the very satisfaction of every need that they have.
HEBREWS.CHAPTER.1_ JEFF.IN HEB WEDNESDAY_ 57-0821
20-126 Could you imagine before there even was a earth, before there was a light, before there was a star, before there was anything? There's a Great Fountain going forth of Spirit, and out of this Fountain came the most pure of love; 'cause there was nothing for it to come from there but love. Now, we... What we call love today is a perverted love. But just as we get a essence, or a little bit of that love in us, it changes our whole opinion.
Then out of there come another stream off of this main Fountain, the Diamond, and it was called righteousness, absolutely righteousness. Now, that's the reason we had to have law. That's the reason law has to have judgment. If judgment doesn't follow law, law doesn't do no good. And when judgment was passed by law, which brings death... And there's no one who could pay the penalty but God Himself. And He paid the penalty of our death, and took our sins upon Him, that we might be the righteousness of God through Him.
Now, when these great Lights went out, or great rays of Spirit: love, peace... That's all there was. That... There wasn't no suffering; there wasn't no--no hate, nor no malice. It couldn't come from this Fountain. That was Jehovah. That was Jehovah God. And now, as the theologians call it, a theophany went from That, which was called in the Scriptural the Logos, the Logos that went out of God. It's hard to explain, but It was a part of God.
ESCAPE.HITHER.COME.QUICKLY_ WATERLOO.IA SUNDAY_ 58-0202, E-51 And to know that here we are this afternoon, just at the end time, and all these great things happening, and here we are safely in Christ. Your life proves it. Now, if your life don't tally up to it, you're deceived. That's right. But if you see it, understand, praising God for it, your life is full of righteousness of God; it ain't hard for you to do something that's...
You don't want to do anything's wrong. There's where the two great schools went off on the deep end, the Arminian doctrine. You've got to do a certain thing and do a certain thing. That's works. And the other side, the Calvinists, went "Bless God, I'm saved, I do what I want to." See? But the middle of the road is it. If you love Him you won't do anything wrong, like to your wife.
JEHOVAH.JIREH_ LA.CA FRIDAY_ 59-0417, E-10 But Lot had backslid. He was going--not to lose his soul, but lose his reward. And there he was... Now remember, to find out whether he was still--had the spark in his heart, we find out that the Bible said that the sins of that people vexed his righteous soul.
Don't you feel bad tonight to go out on the street and see people, the way they live in sin? That's the righteousness of God in your heart, that it just seems there's something wrong.
And that's the way Lot was. Though he was--had circumstances, and had backslidden. But yet, down in his heart...
CHURCH.DEDICATION_ CLEVELAND.TN WEDNESDAY_ 59-0708M
E-23 Now, the scarlet in the Bible is referred to as sheep's wool died in blood, scarlet, the red meaning our redemption. That scarlet wool was to be throwed in with the heifer. And then cedar wood speaks of the cross. The cross, cedar wood, is white and got red streaks in it. And the white speaks of the righteousness of the cross. And the red speaks of the Blood that made it righteous. The cross was a curse. "Cursed is he that hangeth on a tree." The cross was a curse until the Blood of Jesus Christ poured down it. Then we embrace it to our hearts. For it's the righteousness of God. It was the red that's in the cedar wood that makes the white righteous. Cedar wood should be burnt with it.
THOU.SON.OF.DAVID.HAVE.MERCY.ON.ME_ LONG.BEACH.CA WEDNESDAY_ 61-0215, E-78 Our heavenly Father, Your Word cannot fail. It's eternal. You said, "He that heareth My words, and believeth on Him that sent Me, has Everlasting Life." You said so, Lord. "And will not come into the judgment (or condemnation at the judgment), but has passed from death unto Life," because they have believed on the Lord Jesus Christ, that He died in their stead, taking their sins. And through their unrighteousness they are made the righteousness of God through Jesus Christ. There they are, Father. They're the trophies of the message. They're here. They're your children. Now, I may never be able to shake their hands in this earth. But, Father God, upon the basis of Your Word I believe and accept Your Word that You are God, and You cannot lie, and Your Word is eternal. I claim them for the Gospel. I claim them, for God's sake through Jesus Christ, remitting all their sins.
And, Father, pray that You'll guide these children unto Eternal Life. Guide them to the baptism of the Holy Ghost. Baptize them, Father, into the Spirit and power of the body of Jesus Christ, that they might see with their own eyes that You are the Son of God. They have believed it by faith now and accepted it, and upon those basis You said they were saved. I pray for them and commit them into thy hands, in the Name of Jesus Christ.
MARK.OF.THE.BEAST_ LONG.BEACH.CA FRIDAY_ 61-0217, E-25 Now, we go on down here get some of our--our Scriptures we was using. Seal being the mark, how that the seal was used instead of a name, put it on. And the Name of Jesus Christ is the Seal of God, the righteousness of God. "The Name of the Lord is a mighty tower; the righteous run into it and are safe." Is that God's Seal? "Whatever you ask the Father in My Name, that will I do." Is that right? "Whatsoever you do in word or in deed, do it all in the Name of Jesus." Is that right? Everything you do... Peter said on the day of Pentecost, "Repent, and be baptized in the Name of Jesus Christ for the remission of your sins, and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost," Seal of God. God's marked seal, identification, is the Name of the Lord Jesus. And when Jesus comes into you, it puts His Spirit in. No matter how many names you'd write on the outside of it, if the Spirit is in there, it bears record of truth.
CONFERENCES_ BLOOMINGTON.IL MONDAY_ 61-0410, E-40 Man truly expressed what he's made out of right then. Instead of coming out to God and saying, "I'm wrong, Father. I did wrong," he hid hisself and wrapped himself in some fig leaves. That's what man tries to do today. Instead of come out and say he's an unbeliever, he will try to say, "I'm a Presbyterian, Baptist, Methodist, Lutheran," or something else. Instead of wrapping hisself up in the righteousness of God, and confessing his sins that he's wrong and a disbeliever, he tries to hide behind some church theology. Get out from behind it, Adam, unbeliever. Notice, that's what he does, though.
And notice, God never sent an Angel down to find His child; He come Hisself. That was the real... The reason I think today... that today when they try in this day of modernistic religion, this day when social religion is dominating the country, creeping into all different denominations... They try to take the divinity off of Jesus Christ and make Him just a man.
THY.HOUSE_ TIFTON.GA TUESDAY_ 61-0808
E-29 "Job, you've... you done... You don't want to confess it (See?), because you're a secret sinner. You're doing it secretly, and God's punishing you for it, so that's the reason that things are going for you the way they are."
But he said, "No, sir. I am not a sinner." Because he was standing pat upon that righteousness of God, that burnt sacrifice. He'd offered it. That's all he had to offer. That's all God required.
And did you notice, after the Spirit of God had come on the prophet and everything got all right (You see?), God restored back to Job what? He restored back to him his... Where he had ten thousand cattle, He give him twenty thousand cattle. Where he had forty-thousand sheep, He give him eighty-thousand sheep. See? And He restored everything back to him that he ever had.
And you notice, it said, "And He restored his seven children." See? He gave Job his seven children. Not, didn't give him seven other children, but He gave Job his seven children. Now, what was it? His house, "Thy and thy house." Because he was righteous, because he was standing on everything that God gave us to be righteous--or gave him, was to offer that burnt offering.
And he knowed that that was God's Word, and it could not fail. So, did you ever think where them children was? They was in heaven waiting for him. See? He's with them today. And God saved Job's children. They were in heaven waiting for him. See?
