Righteousness by Faith Spelled Out
By John Thiel
This verse in Psalm leaves you without a doubt what righteousness is meant to be:
Psalm 119:138 Thy testimonies that thou hast commanded are righteous and very faithful.
The margin says righteousness. If you want a plain proof text of what is righteousness, it is His commandments.
Psalm 119:142 Thy righteousness is an everlasting righteousness, and thy law is the truth.
Psalm 119:144The righteousness of thy testimonies is everlasting: give me understanding, and I shall live.
Psalm 119:172 My tongue shall speak of thy word: for all thy commandments are righteousness.Read the rest of this entry
The Practical Transferal of God’s Righteousness
By John Thiel, mp3
Scripture Reading: 2 Corinthians 5:14 For the love of Christ constraineth us; because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead: 15 And that he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again.Read the rest of this entry
Righteousness by Faith
O for a faith. What sort of a faith? That will not shrink though pressed by many a foe, a faith that shines more bright and clear, when tempests rage without, when in danger knows no fear, that bears unmoved the world’s dread frown nor heeds its scornful smile, nor its soft arts beguile.
7. Motive of Love
By John Thiel, Seeking to Please God Series, mp3,
Scripture reading: Revelation 2:2 I know thy works, and thy labour, and thy patience, and how thou canst not bear them which are evil: and thou hast tried them which say they are apostles, and are not, and hast found them liars: 3 And hast borne, and hast patience, and for my name’s sake hast laboured, and hast not fainted. 4 Nevertheless I have [somewhat] against thee, because thou hast left thy first love.
We are seeking to please God in this time of the hour of God’s judgment, the day of atonement. And we continue to pursue the understanding of the following quote in searching our hearts: Read the rest of this entry
What Is Righteousness By Faith?
By John Thiel, mp3
Scripture reading: Hebrews 11:6 But without faith [it is] impossible to please [him]: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and [that] he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
We want to consider an experience, and it is to be researched not merely as a subject of theory, but as something in which our experience is brought into focus. This experience is described in the words of Apostle Paul:
Philippians 3:7 But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ. 8 Yea doubtless, and I count all things [but] loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them [but] dung, that I may win Christ, 9 And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith: Read the rest of this entry
5. Are We Saved By Works?
By John Thiel, The Last Generation Challenge Series, mp3
Scripture reading: Hebrews 4:1 Let us therefore fear, lest, a promise being left [us] of entering into his rest, any of you should seem to come short of it.
It appears that we are upholding works. That we want to be saved by the works of keeping the Sabbath correctly. But this is not so. Read the rest of this entry
Practical Righteousness by Faith
By John Thiel, mp3
Scripture Reading: Jeremiah 33:14 Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will perform that good thing which I have promised unto the house of Israel and to the house of Judah. 15 In those days, and at that time, will I cause the Branch of righteousness to grow up unto David; and he shall execute judgment and righteousness in the land. 16 In those days shall Judah be saved, and Jerusalem shall dwell safely: and this [is the name] wherewith she shall be called, The LORD our righteousness.
