22 “Return, you backsliding children, And I will heal your backslidings. “Indeed we do come to You,
For You are the Lord our God. Lord said to Moses, “Whoever has sinned against Me, I will blot him out of My book.”
Today’s Inspiration: As we celebrate our Passover this afternoon, let’s get back to Jeremiah 3:22 where Jeremiah reminded God’s people to return from backsliding and He will heal their backsliding. For some it maybe truly calling back from backsliding, for others from inability to crucify flesh, and for others distractions from the world. This year 2020 is prophetic because we go back to the original Passover in the days of Moses where Passover is celebrated in the home. Now all the Nations are for the first time locked down to observe Passover from the home instead of celebrating in churches or in Israel. Therefore let us celebrate together by logging in to above.
This is the time for Nations to return to righteousness. Isaiah 26:9. When God’s judgements are in the Earth, it’s time for inhabitants of the Earth, the inhabitants of the world to learn righteousness. But what is righteousness?
As God’s people, we are to be sanctified (set apart) to be holy and blameless 1 Thessalonians 5:23 in preparation of the Lord’s second coming for He is holy.
The difference between Holiness and righteousness is that Holiness is the responsibility of men seeking God for He is Holy whereas righteousness is a gift from God, given by His grace. It’s only by His grace can we be saved and made righteous. Ephesians 2:8.
Holiness is what a Christian endeavors to be whereas righteousness is what God wants you to be. You can be holy yet not righteous. Some non-Christians are more holier than some Christians but are not righteous. Holiness is reverence and attitude towards God but righteousness is right standing before God. Believers are made righteous and expect to be holy. Holiness is a continuous endeavour for every Christian but righteousness is made only through the blood of our Lord Jesus Christ. Righteousness is one of the attributes of God.
It’s not the hearers of the Law who will be justified in the sight of God but the doers who will be justified. Romans 2:13.
It’s the hardness and impenitent of heart who are treasuring up for themselves wrath in the day of wrath and Revelation of the righteous judgement of God who will render to each one according to his deeds Eternal life is for those who by patient continuance in doing good seek for glory, honor and immortality. V5-7. Every soul of man who does evil, self seeking and do not obey the truth of the gospel but obey unrighteousness, indignation and wrath, tribulation and wrath will be faced for both Jews and Gentiles. V8-9. There is no partiality with God. Glory and honor and peace to everyone who works what is good. V10. John 6:68 Peter asked Jesus, ‘Lord to whom shall we go? You have the word of eternal life.
<p style=”text-align: justify;”><span style=”font-size: 13pt;”>It is God who restores our soul and leads us to righteousness. Psalm 23:4. Therefore we are to pursue God, know Him intimately and honor Him with reverence for it is only He who can justify us or leads us to righteousness for His name’s sake. Breastplate of righteousness was given to us by God as part of the armor of God to grant us peace that we may be healed. It was for His chastisement that we are granted peace with God and by His stripes we are healed. Isaiah 53:5. Receive your healing today. God be praised.</span></p>
