Jeremiah 23:6

SOTERIOLOGY MINUS JESUS [II]

0 Comments
My understanding of this Scripture [Jeremiah 23:6] is that, it speaks of the Christ being the righteousness of Christians, ergo, His Divinity. Even if I have to agree with Adam Clarke, in that Christ is designated “Our Righteousness” by Yahweh, what does it bespoken? Yahweh’s use of the possessive ‘Our’ makes the Christ, the Divine Righteousness of both the Eternal Father and the Holy Spirit! Now, which is more awe inspiring, that Christ is the righteousness of Adamic humans or the righteousness of the Divinity of the Father and the Holy Spirit? So, Adam Clarke, whether this Jeremiah 23:6 says Christ is the righteousness of His body, the Church, or that of the Eternal Ones, it means the same: for Jesus Christ, by the understanding of this Scripture, is very God of very God. Amen!Read More

Righteousness (1)

1 Comment
Zacharias pointed out the necessary outwardness of our piety, saying: "In holiness and righteousness before him, all the days of our life" [Luke 1:75]. The reason for this show of the inherent 'righteousness' is simply that it is our duty to interpret righteousness for the beneficial digestion of what we are to their blind ocular perception. Our Christian lives are interpretation of the righteousness of Christ, our Dwelling. In Greek the word 'holiness' is hosiotēs (hos-ee-ot'-ace) 'piety towards God, fidelity in observing the obligations of piety, holiness.' From the heathen, with whom God had no spiritual transaction of any covenant, God expected no piety. To the Israel of His covenant, even before the parturition of the patriarchal twelve, God said, "....Be ye holy; for I am holy" [1Peter 1:16]; taken from Leviticus 11:44. God was careful not to say it to the Egyptian, Roman, Indian or Chinese. Only to one nation of Israel He had the covenant, ergo, Paul will often write, "First to the Jew then to the Gentiles."Read More

THE NEW SPIRITUAL SPECIES (two)

2 Comments
"For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation" [Romans 10:10]. The noun 'righteousness' is the Greek dikaiosunē (dik-ah-yos-oo'-nay): 'a feminine noun which speaks specifically of (Christian) justification.’ The feminity stance makes our justification a proper Bride of the Righteous Lamb, who has sworn the oath of "I will never leave nor forsake thee." Most definitely, our life, as His mystical body on terra firma, has its locale majestically in Christ, the Second Member of the Godhead. "When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory," so says the word of God in Colossians 3:4, where 'life' is zoe, 'God's kind of life.' The life of this new species cannot be lost, having its location in Christ, who continually takes care of it: for it is His own life! Amen!Read More

CATHOLICISM AND MARY (X)

0 Comments
Another story says Catholic Mary exposed her breast to Saint Bernard, and shot milk into his eye. Presently, people say, while receiving milk from the heavenly Mother, Saint Bernard was initiated into supreme consciousness and adopted as the son of God and Mary. The more medieval wording was that Mary filled him with all divine graces and purified all his sins. Did Mary have to die to perform such deeds of divinity? There is not one scriptural record of Mary’s power of initiation into any ecumenical assistance. The Jerusalem Church did not pray to the Madonna. Mary did not utter one word of prophecy or an encouragement to the nascent Church during the Upper Room inauguration. It was Peter who spoke, having been reinstated as an Apostle of the expected Church. Where was Mary at the first ever Church Council of Jerusalem, found in The Book of Acts Of Apostles 15:1-21, to iron out the Church doctrine? It was James, the biological brother of Jesus and the pastor of the Jerusalem Church who made the final ecumenical speech. None heard of Mary. Read More

I DON’T WANT TO MISS HEAVEN! (I)

"For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. 4) When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory" [Colossians 3:3-4]. The word 'hid' is kruptō (kroop'-to) to conceal (properly by covering).' The righteousness that marks us out as Christians is veritably a clothing and Jesus is essentially the covering. We do not have in our possession any inherent righteousness. And the reality on the scriptural ground is that only this same Jesus has the capability of the competence to keep us in this state of Godly righteousness. We have the same life as Jesus for we are, in the strictest sense, in this righteous journey together for it says that: "Christ, who is our life." Amen. Read More
