My Vision on the Science of Righteousness by Faith

Part 1

 

Mat 5:48†† Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.

 

Rev 3:18 I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.

 

Deut 33:2 And he said, The LORD came from Sinai, and rose up from Seir unto them; he shined forth from mount Paran, and he came with ten thousands of saints: from his right hand went a fiery law for them.

 

"Christ is waiting with longing desire for the manifestation of Himself in His church., When the character of Christ shall be perfectly reproduced in His people, then He will come to claim them as His own." E.G. White, Christ's Object Lessons, p. 69.

I was shown that we are Not to be majoring in abominations while we must repudiate them.

 

Impart Impute

 

Rom 4:6 Even as David also describeth the blessedness of the man, unto whom God imputeth righteousness without works,

 

The meaning of the above verse is that Christís righteousness is imputed to us without works, BECAUSE THE WORKS ARE NOT OURS. THEY ARE HIS. HE DOETH THE WORKS, in the same way that Christ said of His Father, My Father doeth the works:

 

Iv 14:10 Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.

 

I want to make it very clear from the beginning, that we cannot keep the law in our own strength.

 

Justification prime "We are saved through the merit of the blood of Christ, but Christ's righteousness does not cover the sin of transgressing God's law, without repentance. We must do all in our power to keep the commandments of God, and then he will impute unto us his righteousness, because we believe in Christ and seek to obey the divine law. This is the reason that Christ came to this world, that he might bring his righteousness to man, that man might lay hold of his strength, and make peace with God. God accepts the efforts of man to keep the law, because Christ imputes his righteousness to him. We could not keep the law in our own strength. {ST, September 23, 1889 par. 7}

 

IMPUTESóIMPARTS BOTH--Ellen White said:Love for a lost world was manifested every day, in every act of His life. Those who are imbued by His Spirit will work in the same lines as those in which Christ worked. In Christ the light and love of God were manifested in human nature. No human being has ever possessed so sensitive a nature as did the sinless, holy One of God, who stood as head and representative of what humanity may become through the imparting of the divine nature. To those who believe in Christ as their personal Saviour, He imputes His merit and imparts His power. To those who come to Him with their burden of grief, disappointments, and trials, He will give rest and peace. It is through the grace of Christ that the soul sees his need of repentance toward God. . ., and is led to look to Christ by faith, realizing that His merit is efficacious to save to the uttermost all who come unto God by Him. . . . Let us open our hearts to receive the love which it is so essential that we should cultivate in order that we may fulfill the commandments of God. {TMK 288.4}

 

Justification "No one can believe with the heart unto righteousness, and obtain justification by faith, while continuing the practice of those things which the Word of God forbids, or while neglecting any known duty....As God works in the heart, and man surrenders his will to God, and co-operates with God, he works out in the life what God WORKS IN by the Holy Spirit, and there is harmony between the purpose of the heart and the practice of the life. Every sin must be renounced as the hateful thing that crucified the Lord of life and glory....It is by continual surrender of the will, by continual obedience, that the blessing of justification is retained." E.G. White, Selected Messages, vol. 1, pp. 396-397.

 

John 14:10 Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.

 

On Monday a.m., May 13, 2019., the Angel of the Lord gave me a vision on the Science of Righteousness by Faith. I was shown that Godís servants have been majoring in all of the wrong subjects as concerns His Second Coming. Ellen White stated in 1844, and 1888 that if Godís people had fully embraced the messages of those times, Christ could have come ere this.

 

"Christ is waiting with longing desire for the manifestation of Himself in His church., When the character of Christ shall be perfectly reproduced in His people, then He will come to claim them as His own." E.G. White, Christ's Object Lessons, p. 69.

 

What is the Character of Christ. It is Gold (faith and love) tried in the fiery law. He was tested by every temptation we experience and actually much more because of His divinity. And yet He was found without sin, and He did not sin even by a thought. Is this standard too high for us? If so, why would God instruct us to be perfect?

 

Is perfection impossible? Every command of God is an enablement made possible by the Holy Spirit of His dear Son Jesus, Christ. If it were impossible to overcome, God would have lied when He told us to be perfect because if it was not possible, He would have lied by the implication that it is possible by giving us the command to be perfect. And God is not a liar. Satan is a liar and it is he who tries to convince man that what God expects of us is impossible.

 

Godís Word and the Spirit of Prophecy have explicitly spelled out the conditions by which we may literally hasten the second coming of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, and yet we have not majored in fulfilling those conditions. Christ is waiting for His bride to make herself ready, and she is described by Him as being without fault, Revelation 14:1-5.

 

Rev. 19:7 Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready.

 

What is the character of Christ. We get an answer to this question when we study the Laodicean Message Christ sent to His people. He instructed them to buy gold tried in the fire; the fiery law of Deut. 33:2. In the Sanctuary, there is much Gold, and all the Gold represents Christ. Christ is as pure gold, no impurities. And Christ was tested and purified by the fiery law of God.

 

Gold Smelting Process https://sciencing.com/gold-smelting-process-5453916.html

 

Jesus used the analogy of Gold being purified by fire, the fiery law for a reason. A similar mental process of character development is achieved only by our gold (faith and love) being tried in the fiery law of God. For example, a test of our love is obedience?

 

Jhn 14:15 If ye love me, keep my commandments.

 

Jhn 14:23 Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.

 

What could be a greater achievement than to so live that Christ and His Father will come unto us and make their abode with us?

 

Jhn14:10 Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.

 

When Jesus, our Father, dwells in us, He doeth the works by the empowerment of His Holy Spirit.

 

1Jo 2:27 But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.

 

1Jo 2:28 And now, little children, abide in him; that, when he shall appear, we may have confidence, and not be ashamed before him at his coming.

 

Folk will spend millions trying to get their sons and/or daughters enrolled in a university of notoriety, but most will not spend the time necessary to perfect the character for heaven and eternal life. That is why the gate is narrow and few there be that enter.

 

Mat 7:14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. Friends, we have majored in minors and anything held more important that eternal life and heaven is a minor pursuit!

 

Dan 9:14 Therefore hath the LORD watched upon the evil, and brought it upon us: for the LORD our God is righteous in all his works which he doeth: for we obeyed not his voice.

 

Jhn 5:20 For the Father loveth the Son, and sheweth him all things that himself doeth: and he will shew him greater works than these, that ye may marvel.

 

Gal 3:5 He therefore that ministereth to you the Spirit, and worketh miracles among you, doeth he it by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?

 

Psa 19:7 The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple.

 

Gold Tried in the Fire

 

We must have faith and love (Gold) tried in the fire of obedience to the fiery law of God. That is how our love is tried and proven. If you truly love Jesus for all He did for you, show it by keeping His commandments by the enablement of His Holy Spirit grace which is given to us: Romans 1:5:

 

Rom 1:5 By whom we have received grace and apostleship, for obedience to the faith among all nations, for his name:

 

Ellen White defines grace as the Holy Spirit

 

ďThey must have His grace, the Spirit of Christ, to help their infirmities, or they cannot form a Christian character. Jesus loves to have us come to Him, just as we areósinful, helpless, dependent.Ē Faith and Works, p. 38.

 

We may come to Jesus JUST AS WE ARE, but we are not to remain JUST AS WE ARE. That would be a denial of the grace POWER of the Holy Spirit and the Law of God that is perfect, converting the soul. That would be a denial that we can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth us?

 

Phl 4:13 I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

 

Any denial that the Holy Spirit is efficacious enough to enable to overcome sin, is speaking against the Holy Ghost, which is unpardonable sin. That is what Satan did/does. He maintained that God gave commandments that are impossible to keep. Godís Word says that it is possible for us to do all things through the strength of Christís Holy Spirit that is given to us as grace for obedience. To deny this truth is to speak against the Holy Ghost which is unpardonable sin, and sad to say, much of the new organization SDA once church, is teaching that it is impossible to be perfect, or minimalizing, marginalizing the necessity to be perfect, and this is done in very subtle and insidious ways such as rolling the eyes or raising the eyebrows.

 

Does the New Organization Teach 1888 type righteousness by faith?

 

The new organization is adamant that it has accepted and teaches true righteousness by faith. My angel showed me that it can be proven that the new organization DOES NOT believe and teach righteousness by faith as taught in 1888. I was shown that absolute proofs of this fact are:

 

1.   Jesus has not come and Ellen White said that if righteousness by faith had been fully embraced in 1888, Jesus could have come at that time.

 

2.   The rancor AGAINST M. L. Andreasenís teaching of last generation theology, whereby God will have a final generation that will overcome and possess character perfection after the order of our example Christ Jesus.

 

3.   The hate generated by the new organization against the theology that a final generation will be perfected after the character of Christ, should be proof perfect that the new organization has never accepted and practiced genuine righteousness by Faith

 

What is Genuine Righteousness by Faith?

 

Righteousness by Faith is the firm belief that one can do all things through the empowerment of Christís Holy Spirit that strengtheneth us. This means that if you aspire to proper faith in and love for Christ, you can overcome ANYTHING RIGHT NOW BY FAITH IN AND LOVE FOR CHRIST JESUS!!!!!!!

The Son of Almighty God was raised up to bless you in turning EVERY ONE OF YOU from his iniquities (sins).

 

Act 3:26 Unto you first God, having raised up his Son Jesus, sent him to bless you, in turning away every one of you from his iniquities.

 

2Pe 1:4 Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.

 

It is by the Spirit that the heart is made pure. Through the Spirit the believer becomes a partaker of the divine nature. Christ has given his Spirit as a divine power to overcome all hereditary and cultivated tendencies to evil, and to impress his own character upon the church." E.G. White, Review and Herald Articles, May 19, 1904, vol. 5, p. 42.

 

To believe that it is impossible to be perfect is to LIMIT the POWER OF THE DIVINE NATURE of the Holy Spirit. No speaking against the Holy Ghost could be any worse than that, and this is why any and all such speech is speaking against the Holy Ghost, and unpardonable sin.

 

"Christ declared that after his ascension, he would send to his church, as his crowning gift, the Comforter, who was to take his place. This Comforter is the Holy Spirit,--the soul of his life, the efficacy of his church, the light and life of the world. With his Spirit Christ sends a reconciling influence and a power that takes away sin.

In the gift of the Spirit [HIS LIFE--THE SOUL OF HIS LIFE], Jesus gave to man the highest good that heaven could bestow....

The Spirit was given as a regenerating agency, and without this the sacrifice of Christ would have been of no avail....

It is by the Spirit that the heart is made pure. Through the Spirit the believer becomes a partaker of the divine nature. Christ has given his Spirit as a divine power to overcome all hereditary and cultivated tendencies to evil, and to impress his own character upon the church." E.G. White, Review and Herald Articles, May 19, 1904, vol. 5, p. 42.

 

IMPUTESóIMPARTS BOTH--Ellen White said:Love for a lost world was manifested every day, in every act of His life. Those who are imbued by His Spirit will work in the same lines as those in which Christ worked. In Christ the light and love of God were manifested in human nature.

Christ imparts His power, and then He imputes His merit to us just as He did with Abraham. He gave Abraham the POWER the love and faith TO OBEY HIM, and then imputed such to him as righteousness, the righteousness of Christ. RIGHTEOUSNESS BY FAITH

 

Jas 2:23 And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God.

 

I have read a number of the writings of A.T. Jones on 1888 Righteousness by Faith. Jones taught that one could leave his meetings an instant victor over besetting sins by righteousness by Faith. And he was right. Any denial of that truth would be a denial of the POWER of Christís Holy Spirit, versus the power of Satan. So be very careful before you deny the RAW POWER of the holy Spirit GIFT that is available to all of us.

Consider that when Christ worked miracles by the power (works) of His Father? Were they INSTANT via His righteousness by faith, or were they delayed. THEY WERE INSTANT, just as the miracle of overcoming any sins can be instant by righteousness by faith and love. This is what A.T. Jones meant when he said that folk could leave his meetings INSTANT overcomers of certain sins, by the grace of Christ, of course, but also by the love and faith one chose to purchaseóthe Gold tried in the fire. Which we all must purchase. That is our part in the act of overcoming sin. We must first purchase the Gold, love and faith of Christís righteousness, and TRULY BELIEVE by the same faith that Christ exercised.

Jones would insist that one could claim the victory RIGHT NOW, and that there was absolutely no need or excuse to continue in KNOWN SIN. He was right! The power is ALWAYS AVAILABLE AT ANY TIME.
