Isa 54:17 No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.
It is a MODERN TRAGEDY, that typically only the first phrase of this text is quoted, namely; "no weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper."...
The Prophet is also commanded to condemn all who rise in judgment against him. Wow! That is huge responsibility to have that kind of ELOHIM given power and authority. THIS IS YOUR HERITAGE, if.......IF.....YOU ARE A SERVANT OF THE LORD. YOUR HERITAGE!!!!!
But this next phrase is breath taking. Yours and my "RIGHTEOUSNESS" IS OF "HIM". HALLELUYAH. Our righteousness is not our own, but HIS. Paul reiterates this in Romans 4....
Romans 4:8 Amplified Bible (AMP)
8 Blessed and happy and to be envied is the person of whose sin the Lord will take no account nor reckon it against him.
BLESSED!!!! Are you so happy that folks ENVY your joy? Oh my. When you speak of such as this to folks, most of the time they look at you with a blank stare, like you're speaking words without meaning. So numbed is the heart of orthodoxy, that men do not hear truth when it is plainly presented.
What I'm bringing to your attention is that ELOHIM proclaimed this truth to the Prophet Isaiah, and spoke it again through the Apostle Paul. BLESSED IS THE MAN THAT ELOHIM DOES NOT IMPUTE SIN. Instead, HE imputes RIGHTEOUSNESS (RIGHTSTANDING)!!!!!! WHY?
BECAUSE YOU ARE HIS OBEDIENT SERVANT. You keep HIS commandments and hunger after righteousness. But our righteousness is not ours, but HIS, given freely to HIS servants. Not so for those who pick and choose their opportunities to obey, between their worldly fleshy gratifications. Oh no. A true servant is a servant that ABIDES, LIVES IN, THE MESSIAH. GLORY!!!!! Is that who you are? Is it? Then the promise of imputed RIGHTEOUSNESS IS YOUR POSSESSION, your inheritance. GLORY!!!! Can we just have church here today?
