True Word of Yah: What is Righteousness & Law? A Romans 10 & Isaiah 51 Study
What is Righteousness and What Is The Law?
5 For Moses writes that the man who practices the righteousness which is based on law shall live by that righteousness. (Deuteronomy 25:1)
6 But the righteousness based on faith speaks as follows:➡️ “Do not say in your heart, ‘Who will ascend into heaven?’ (that is, to bring Christ down),
or ‘Who will descend into the abyss?’ (that is, to bring Christ up from the dead).”
8 But what does it say?➡️ “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart”—that is, the word of faith which we are preaching,
9 that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved;
for with the heart a person believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation.
For the Scripture says, “Whoever believes in Him will not be disappointed.” For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek; for the same Lord is Lord of all, abounding in riches for all who call on Him;
13 for “Whoever will call on the name of the Lord will be saved.”
➡️ Righteousness is: G1343:
➡️in a broad sense: state of him who is as he ought to be, righteousness, the condition acceptable to God
➡️the doctrine concerning the way in which man may attain a state approved of God
➡️integrity, virtue, purity of life, rightness, correctness of thinking feeling, and acting
➡️in a narrower sense, justice or the virtue which gives each his due
➡️G1343- Righteousness-δικαιοσύνη dikaiosýnē, dik-ah-yos-oo'-nay; from G1342; equity (of character or act); specially (Christian) justification:—righteousness.
➡️Righteousness Is Our Character, Integrity, Our Virtues...
Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: G1343 for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
➡️(Blessed are they who are persecuted for their Intergrity..virtues.. Character...)
But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; G1343 and all these things shall be added unto you.
➡️(Seek First the Integrity, Character, Virtues of God...)
Law is G3551
anything established, anything received by usage, a custom, a law, a command
of any law whatsoever
➡️a law or rule producing a state approved of God
➡️by the observance of which is approved of God
a precept or injunction
the rule of action prescribed by reason
➡️of the Mosaic law, and referring, acc. to the context. either to the volume of the law or to its contents
➡️the Christian religion: the law demanding faith, the moral instruction given by Christ, esp. the precept concerning love
➡️the name of the more important part (the Pentateuch), is put for the entire collection of the sacred books of the OT
➡️Law-G3551-νόμος nómos, nom'-os; from a primary νέμω némō (to parcel out, especially food or grazing to animals); law (through the idea of prescriptive usage), genitive case (regulation), specially,➡️ (of Moses (including the volume);➡️ also of the Gospel), or figuratively (a principle):—law.
Think not that I am come to destroy the law, G3551 or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.
For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth.
➡️Yahusha/Christ Is the end of the Law for Righteousness.
He is The Integrity, Virtue, Morals, Character (Righteousness) All who accept and Believe in Him are Transformed into His Righteousness. That's what is Written..
But the righteousness based on faith speaks as follows: “DO NOT SAY IN YOUR HEART, ‘WHO WILL ASCEND INTO HEAVEN?’ (that is, to bring Christ down),
Faith Is G4102
➡️conviction of the truth of anything, belief; in the NT of a conviction or belief respecting man's relationship to God and divine things, generally with the included idea of trust and holy fervour born of faith and joined with it
relating to God
➡️the conviction that God exists and is the creator and ruler of all things, the provider and bestower of eternal salvation through Christ
➡️relating to Christ
➡️a strong and welcome conviction or belief that Jesus is the Messiah, through whom we obtain eternal salvation in the kingdom of God
the religious beliefs of Christians
➡️belief with the predominate idea of trust (or confidence) whether in God or in Christ, springing from faith in the same
➡️the character of one who can be relied on
➡️Faith-G4102πίστις pístis, pis'-tis; from G3982; persuasion, i.e. credence; ➡️moral conviction (of religious truth, or the truthfulness of God or a religious teacher), ➡️especially reliance upon Christ for salvation; abstractly, constancy in such profession; by extension, the system of religious ➡️(Gospel) truth itself:—assurance, ➡️belief, believe, faith, fidelity.
Not only Is faith Knowing God Can But Knowing His Character!!
Your Character Integrity Virtues are under Attack. But Our Time Is Now!!! For all those Who Hear Abba/Father Yah/God Calling You!!
Isaiah said: 51:7-11
“Listen to Me, you who know righteousness,
A people in whose heart is My law;
Do not fear the reproach of man,
Nor be dismayed at their revilings.
8 “For the moth will eat them like a garment,
And the grub will eat them like wool.
But My righteousness will be forever,
And My salvation to all generations.”
Awake, awake, put on strength, O arm of the Lord;
Awake as in the days of old, the generations of long ago.
Was it not You who cut Rahab in pieces,
Who pierced the dragon?
10 Was it not You who dried up the sea,
The waters of the great deep;
Who made the depths of the sea a pathway
For the redeemed to cross over?
11 So the ransomed of the Lord will return
And come with joyful shouting to Zion,
And everlasting joy will be on their heads.
They will obtain gladness and joy,
And sorrow and sighing will flee away.
