word 'justified' is the same root as 'righteousness' and means 'made righteous'.
9:1-12 "Then Job answered and said.....how should man be just with
God? If he will contend with him, he cannot answer him one of a thousand.
He is wise in heart and mighty in strength. Who has hardened himself against
him and has prospered? Which removes the mountains and they know not, which
overturns them in his anger. Which shakes the earth out of her place and
the pillars thereof tremble. Which commands the sun and it rises not and
seals up the stars. Which alone spreads out the heavens and treads upon
the waves of the sea. Which makes Arcturus, Orion, and Pleiades and the
chambers of the south. Which does great things past finding out; yea and
wonders without number. Lo, he goes by me and I see him not. He passes
on also but I perceive him not. Behold, he takes away, who can hinder him?
Who will say unto him, What doest thou?"
gift is of many offences unto justification...they which receive abundance
of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life through
12:13 "...the just come out of trouble."
And who are the just?.Titus
3:7 "...That being justified by his grace,
we should be made heirs according to the hope
of eternal life." Luke 14:14 "And
shall be blessed.....you shall be recompensed at the
resurrection of the just."
And in that,
we can take great confidence.
5:1 "Therefore being justified by faith.(not
by a bunch of rules and regulations as were common under the old
Law and still common today in far too many churches),
we have peace with God through our Lord Emmanuel
Christ." Romans 1:17 "For therein
is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith, as it is written,
The just shall live by faith."
Faith works by love.(Galatians
5:6 ".....faith which works by love."),
so really, it is the law of love that
is the paramount
principle in the universe. Faith working by love brings abundance of
grace into our lives:.1Timothy
1:14; 2Timothy 1:13.
3:26-28 "To declare, I say, at this time
righteousness...by the law of faith...we conclude that a man is justified
by faith without the deeds of the law.(without
keeping the Mosaic Law they so prized for centuries)."
4:13,16 "For the promise, that he.(Abraham).should
be the heir of the world.(Genesis
17:4-6; Acts 13:32,33; Galatians
3:29), was not to Abraham, or to
his seed, through the law, but through the righteousness of faith...Therefore
it is of faith, that it might be by grace,
to the end the promise.(through
be sure to all the seed....."
9:32 "Wherefore? Because they sought it not by faith, but as it were
by the works of the law, they stumbled at that stumblingstone."
2:16 "Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law,
but by the faith of Emmanuel the Christ, even we have believed in Emmanuel
the Christ, that we might be justified by the
faith of Christ and not by the works of the law, for by the works of
the law shall no flesh be justified."
7:22 "For I delight in the law of God after the inward man."
8:2 "For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Emmanuel
hath made me free from the law of sin and death."
9:31,32 "But Israel, which followed after the law of righteousness
has not attained to the law of righteousness. Wherefore? Because
they sought it not by faith, but as it were by the works of the law..."
What fulfils the spiritual
6:2 "Bear you one another's burdens and so fulfil the law of Christ."
3:2 "This only would I learn of you, Received you the Spirit by the
works of the law or by the hearing of faith.(and
one would not 'hear' the things of faith unless he or she is
'When you first came to Christ and received the Holy Spirit, the attitude
of wholeness; did you get to that point by first keeping all the
ten commandments with the associated.do's
and don'ts of religion perfectly?'
5:12-18: "Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world and death
by sin and so death passed upon all men, for that all
is and always was the same from the low consciousness level of living).
For until the law.(Mosaic
was in the world, but sin is not imputed when there is no law.(and
there is now no law of sin and
death for those in Christ:.Romans
death reigned from Adam to Moses,
even over them that had not sinned after the similitude
of Adam's transgression, who is the figure of him that was to come. But
not as the offence, so also is the free gift. For if through
the offence of one many be dead, much more the grace of God and the
gift by grace, which is by one man, Emmanuel
Christ, has abounded unto many...
