“For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.” (2 Corinthians 5:21 KJV)
In the midst of the perversion, crimes and atrocities all over the world, God wants to showcase his church. I perceive in my spirit that God wants to grant the church the greatest victory ever on the face of the earth. This is why He wants us to know and understand that we don’t have to struggle, but receive what he has made available to us.
The guarantee for your righteousness is that Jesus rose from the dead. He died for your sins and was raised up for your justification. Romans 5:19 says, “For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.” It did not say by your obedience. A lot of believers are trying so hard to qualify for what God has provided, and each time you try to do that you go into error. That is where Adam missed it. The devil came to him and said don’t mind God, he knows that if you eat the fruit you will be like him. Then Adam decided to eat in order to be who God had already said he was. God said; let us make man in our image. They didn’t do anything for God to make them in his image. In other words, they were trying to be what they already were.
That is what religion does. It tries to make you what God has already made you. Religion pushes you and says pray some more. It says read your Bible some more. It also says you have not praised God enough, so praise some more. Then it will say, it may be because you have not received the Holy Ghost and you receive the Holy Ghost. Then it asks you do you speak in tongues? And you speak. And it says, no that one is not good, and so on and so forth. You keep on adding one thing after the other just to feel righteous. But the truth is you don’t have to do anything because Jesus has done it for you.
