Righteousness is war. The battle of righteousness is hot. The prince of life calls you to fight the battle of righteousness according to His teachings.
Whatsoever we take to on earth, but not according to Christ’s teaching is unrighteousness. Unrighteousness is unprofitable. The author and teacher in the school of unrighteousness (Satan), does not want man to practise acceptable and biblical righteousness.
Beware of spirit of Satan indwelling. Jesus said to the sinful children of Abraham
Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.John 8:44
Such is the power of satans subtilty on earth. The wise worshippers come to total submission to Christ’s teachings and supreme love to God’s word, thus moving Holy Ghost to open their understanding, when they hear the word. Righteousness is of God, Jesus and Holy Spirit.
Unrighteousness is of Satan. The children of unrighteousness cannot fight the battle of righteousness, because of he that is in them, that is the devil. Examine yourself and see whether you have come to repentance.
Confessing sin and forsaking unrighteousness, is the beginning of righteousness. Taking to righteousness and unrighteousness, is unrighteousness, such is the work of Satan. Satan with his sinful and corrupt nature could not continue in the truth in heaven John 8:44.
Here the devil and his armies were cast out from heaven. Beware of nature of Satan and lovelessness to a little bitterness in righteousness. The sinful religious leaders in Israel in the days of Christ earthly ministry made false righteousness in the camouflage of righteousness as many take to today in the body of Christ.
Jesus, seeing the Christian conduct of the sinful religious leaders said
“For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven “ Matthew 5:20
We are called to put on Christ, pant for regeneration and make every effort to do every thing like Jesus our Lord.Obedience to the instruction blesses with power to fight the battle of righteousness. Righteousness breaks out when children of this new life overcome evil with good, spirit of retaliation with spirit of none retaliation, effeminacy with manliness, receiving with giving, stinginess with sacrificial giving etc.
Taking to righteousness only is the battle of righteousness
THE SPIRITUAL WEAPON TO CONTINUE IN THE BATTLE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS
Genuine repentance is embryo of biblical and acceptable righteousness. The newly spiritual born children take to total seperation from sin, seeing that God had called them out of darkness to light and from satanic kingdom to power of Christ, such is the weapon to fight the battle of righteousness. A change of life authenticates righteousness. Restraining appetite put off unrighteousness. The eleven disciples of Jesus endured hardship and bore cross together with Jesus. Jesus appointed twelve disciples to be with Him, none of the twelve set standard of living whereby his income could not meet, took to gluttony, loved the world, exception of Judas Iscariot who did not let go the spirit of stealing. The Bible says
“This he said, not that he cared for the poor but because he was a thief, and had the bag, and bare what was put therein” John12:6
Power and grace to taste a little bitterness in the battle of righteousness declare the weapons. Righteousness breaks Out when the children of this new life excel in the spirit of spiritual Surgery as Jesus commands. Seeing that we brought nothing into this world, we also will carry nothing out of this world apart from eternal life; the true worshippers taste a little bitterness in righteousness in order to inherit eternal Iife on earth; such is the weapon. Ability to put off fornication and adultery, hold unto habit and power to flee the mighty killer, overcome old life with new life, instability in the way of righteousness with holding unto righteousness, effeminacy with manliness, pride with humility, love to evil with life-time lovelessness to evil, old man with new man, fruit of the old life with fruit of the spirit, haughtiness with humility of Christ, worldliness With unworldliness, unkindness with kindness, etc tell the weapons. Righteousness comes from God, Jesus, and Holy Ghost. Christ teachings is the entrance to salvation and righteousness. Ability and grace to hear and assimilate the teachings tells the weapon. The bible say’s
Being filled with the fruits of righteousness, which are by Jesus christ, unto the glory and praise of God. “ Philippians 1:11.
Power and wisdom to approve things that are biblical, acceptable on God’s side, excellent, etc and take to all as God commands speaks the weapon
