Know your inheritance as Sons of God, be established in your identity and manifest Heaven on Earth!
We have received a righteousness that came by believing Jesus – 2 Corinthians 5:21 (KJV) 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…
It is a Righteousness of Faith – Philippians 3:9 (KJV) 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…
Righteousness is a state of being. It is our nature and the most fundamental attribute of our New Creation Identity. This righteousness helps us get into a personal relationship with Jesus because we know He sees us as He is. As citizens of Heaven our very nature is manifested in this world from that seat of ‘true righteousness and holiness.’ When we realise the righteousness we have been established in, our confidence to dominate this physical reality grows. This is our Identity.
You can check out the video Righteousness | The Foundation of being seated in the heavenlies, I share about the differences between sinners and saints, and about how God sees us. I talk about the effects and consequences of ‘sin’ (wrongdoing) in a Christian’s (believer) life.
