thing that pleases the
good Creator is His righteousness in a person. His righteousness
is His nature of love, how He thinks, how He is and how
18:20 "The LORD rewarded me according to my righteousness, according
to the cleanness of my hands has he recompensed
me." Isaiah 32:17 "And the work
of righteousness shall be peace and the effect of righteousness quietness
and assurance for ever." Isaiah
46:12,13 "Hearken unto me, you stouthearted that are far from righteousness.
I bring near my righteousness.(what
is His righteousness?), it shall
not be far off and my salvation shall not tarry.(2Corinthians
50:10 "Who is among you that fears
the LORD, that obeys the voice of his servant, that walks in darkness and
has no light? Let him trust in the name of the LORD and stay upon his God."
The spirit of God is in
you when you have come to believe
that you are righteous because you have quietly in your heart accepted
8:10 "And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin.(Colossians
3:1-3), but the Spirit is life
because of righteousness."
15:6 "And he believed in the LORD and he counted it to him for righteousness."
6:14,15; Psalms 64:9.
Living from one's
ego provides only false hope for life, so one's life is constantly
turning back on a person to their hurt as it was also in Old Testement
times. Few ever discover why:.Ephesians
2:12 "...having no hope and without God in the world.".The
ancients of the Old Testament had
an answer, but rejected
it. Derek found the answer.
Righteousness comes from
the Creator, the Lord.(what's
'the Lord'?). Righteous is not something
you become by doing:.Hosea
10:12: Romans 10:6-10. It's
that you receive by wanting.
Faith comes with this gift
is also called a gift. You'll be
good because you are righteous, having been given the gift of righteousness,
not be good to get righteousness; again, because it is a gift, for why
would you work to get that which is available simply as a gift?
want, free of all the necessary restrictions imposed upon the peoples
of the world because most are still on the road out of the low consciousness
ego level, which is always ready to run rampant
into destruction if left unchecked; true of religion
and true of living in the
world. The ego needs boundaries
because it quickly goes toward evil.
The righteousness of God
has no restrictions..Romans
13:10. The only spiritual guideline for being on Earth now is the
golden rule. If that was followed by all
there would be no laws necessary to control the ego when it wants to and
does often go astray.
rule is the consciousness that Christ
had. This is what He had when He was on Earth in the physical body of the
one we have come to know as
The golden rule is the high consciousness of the
God family, a
family of love, service and help, a family of those not wanting to
13:10), not wanting to use deceit.(deceit
is used when one is out to gain something by taking from someone else),
a family here to learn the way
out of the low consciousness level that has caused all the problems
mankind has ever had.
When one loves, when one
is of service to others, when one helps where need is there, he
or she is of God, because he is of the same thinking as the Infinite
One is, the same thinking that Christ came
to Earth to reveal:.John
When one is like this he
or she is of what is called the Christ consciousness. More and more people
today are of this high consciousness. Shortly after the death of Emmanuel
and resurrection of Christ there were few of high consciousness:.Philippians
2:21 "For all seek their own, not the things which are Emmanuel the
Soon, very soon now,
high consciousness people will have filled
the Earth with the ways of love, the ways of the Infinite One. The
difference will be amazing. High consciousness will
remain in the hearts and minds of all people. A new age of mankind
has long since begun and is now mushrooming:.Matthew
13:31,32; Revelation 11:15;
is being good, doing good, again living by the golden rule is living in
higher consciousness, where the
brain can fully develop.
The Great Infinite One we
most often refer to as God wants righteousness:.Isaiah
45:8 "Drop down, you heavens, from above and let the skies pour down
righteousness. Let the earth open and let them bring forth salvation
and let righteousness spring up together. I the LORD have created it.".And,
He wants it
in all of us.
51:6 ".....my salvation shall be for ever and my.(God's,
shall not be abolished."
12:3 "And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament
and they that turn many to righteousness
as the stars forever
3:12 "For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous and his ears
are open unto their prayers......"
2:3 ".....seek righteousness, seek meekness......"
Righteousness is a gift.(Romans
5:17), a gift of learning about
this being called
Christ, a gift that it is expected you will use.(righteousness
may be a gift and one who appreciates
it will carry it with him down the pathways of life:.Psalms
your benefit by taking it further, that is, learning more:.Isaiah
26:9 "With my soul have I desired you in the night; yea, with my
spirit within me will I seek you early.(how?);
for when your judgments are in the earth
the inhabitants of the world will learn.(original
is 'teach') righteousness.".How
important are our efforts to
bring this about? And how
do we get God on our side?
The truth is you have a
soul and there is a way to unite with it. The goal is to unite the
self that is mostly ego controlled, to one's real
self, through one's connection to the Soul of all:.1Corinthians
15:34 "Awake to righteousness and sin not.(meaning
making the mistake of missing the
mark); for some have not the
knowledge of God.(yet).
I speak this to your shame." Ephesians
4:20,21 ".....learned Christ.('Christ'

heard him and have been taught by him, as the truth is in Emmanuel.".He

the Creator thinks, how He is.
in this scripture in his writing to the church in Corinth, Greece, way
back when, is saying to be on the qui

never miss the mark;
that is, fall off and away from the knowledge of the Creator on this).to
realize that you are righteous. You are righteous because the Creator is
that way and you
too are God; you just don't realize that and because you don't, you
rely upon your ego and what feeds
it, the five senses.

4:24 "And that you put on the new man, which after.(or,

– in line with the Creator because one now comprehends

our reward depends upon this.
The Creator is more than
enough to straighten out any evil in His own way and time.
why does He wait?
Righteousness is something.(a
gift from God).that

gained through our own meditation,
personal Bible study and the guidance
of the Holy Spirit, we come to understand about Christ.
Most religious people have
no real idea of what 'Christ' means. As mentioned, some learn Christ one
way, and others differently: Ephesians
4:20,21 "But you have not so learned
Christ. If so be that you have heard him and have been taught by him,
as the truth is in Emmanuel."
Christ is right there with
you when you are engaged in your quiet and alone spiritual
time. Young's Literal Translation of Ephesians 4:21 has it:."If
so be you did hear him, and
him were taught, as truth is in Emmanuel.".Paul's
It is through a relationship
with the Creator that all one's desires for good are realized, with many
occurring now in this physical life.
comes to us, when He is ready. Apart from that, we would never know
the real God. Many prompts do occur to all of us during our lives
here, but some of us just need more to wake us up.
So, what does He come to
us with? He comes to us with the key to it all, the key to all good, His
1:19 "And what is the exceeding greatness of his power
who believe, according to the working of his mighty power."
So what has prevented this
great power from being active in you, if not you alone? Belief is according
to the working of His power in us, but God never
belief? Believe what? That you are indeed righteous. How righteous?
That's why this subject! Read it.
4:17 ".....God, who quickens.(makes
dead and calls those things which be not as though they were."
How is that for the Great Infinite One having faith in us? God calls you
righteous, and you will soon see why. God knows what He is doing, and with
whom. He does not 'play around' with peoples' lives. He has great respect
45:19 "I have not spoken in secret, in a dark place of the earth. I
said not unto the seed of Jacob, Seek you me in vain. I the LORD speak
righteousness, I declare things that are right."
6:14 "Be you not unequally
yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness
with unrighteousness? And what communion has light with
a business venture
ancient king Jehoshaphat found this out the hard way:.1Kings
Note that Paul
is saying that an unbeliever is one who is unrighteous and that's one who
doesn't know as yet his or her true
state in God. And why
do they not know it?
It means an 'unrighteous
one' is one not yet awakened to the fact that in the
high spiritual realm of God, one is then righteous:.1Timothy
1:13 "Who was before a blasphemer and a persecutor and injurious, but
I obtained mercy, because I did it ignorantly in unbelief.".So
what is the
that the majority cannot seem to cross and why?.Luke
One is also unrighteous if
he thinks he is. The effect is the same. Paul
had to deal with this problem.
15:19 "If you were of
the world, the world would love his own. But because you are not of
the world, but I have chosen you out
of the world, therefore the world
And how are
Many good and sincere God
fearin' religious folks realizing that sin still exists in their lives,
think of themselves from that point of view, thus thinking of themselves,
in error, to be unrighteous and thus alienating
themselves from Creator-God. That is why this subject!
If righteousness was doing
everything right, you would not need the Creator's grace.
Like faith and righteousness
inseparable, so are all the other high consciousness attributes
of love. That is why it is important to understand
toward gaining an overstanding
of just what righteousness really means. It
is not 'doing everything right'.
Who of us ever can do so or ever has consistently done so? Job
came close! But who of us ever really has, but the one called Emmanuel,
who came here, mature
in being righteous, perfect and holy?
One of God's judgments or
decisions is for all to learn righteousness.
