WHAT IS GOD's RIGHTEOUSNESS?

"Whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered:" for vain are the works of man!

WHAT IS GOD’s RIGHTEOUSNESS?

 

Now, Israel, what doth the LORD thy God require of thee,

but to fear the LORD thy God, to walk in all his ways,

and to love him, and to serve the LORD thy God with all thy heart

and with all thy soul, To keep the commandments of the LORD,

and his statutes, which I command thee

this day for thy good?

Deuteronomy 10:12,13

 

Only be thou strong and very courageous,

that thou mayest observe to do according to all the law,

which Moses my servant commanded thee:

turn not from it to the right hand or to the left,

that thou mayest prosper whithersoever thou goest.

This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth;

but thou shalt meditate therein day and night,

that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein:

for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous,

and then thou shalt have good success.

Joshua 1:7,8

-HIS BOOK OF THE LAW (As per HIS Laws, Statutes, and Judgments)

-OBEDIENCE

-RIGHTEOUSNESS

 

When I think of the Righteous men in the “Old Testament”, I think of the Hebrew Patriarchs of the Children of Israel: Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, Moses, Joshua, Samuel, the Righteous Prophets, and King David. From these men there is much to be learned about GOD’s foundation and HIS initiation and relationship with HIS Covenant People, the Children of Israel. I have accomplished that in earlier Messages concerning the CREATOR GOD of Israel; therefore, I would like to set the spotlight on King David for his love of the CREATOR and for GOD’s Love and choice of him to reign over HIS Kingdom of Israel.

 

Samuel said unto Jesse, Are here all thy children?

And he said, There remaineth yet the youngest,

and, behold, he keepeth the sheep.

And Samuel said unto Jesse, Send and fetch him:

for we will not sit down till he come hither.

And he sent, and brought him in. Now he was ruddy,

and withal of a beautiful countenance, and goodly to look to.

And the LORD said, Arise, anoint him: for this is he.

Then Samuel took the horn of oil, and anointed him

in the midst of his brethren:

and the Spirit of the LORD came upon David

from that day forward.

I Samuel 16:11 - 13

 

It was the GOD of Israel that took HIS Kingdom from Saul for disobeying HIS Commandments and gave it to David. It was GOD of Israel that said that David is a man after HIS own heart. Therefore, it behooves us to study the ways of King David and learn what it is that makes him so special in GOD’s EYES. GOD also appointed David and his Seed to reign over HIS Kingdom, “forever”. The Book of Psalms is replete with King David’s words of GOD’s PRAISE and prayers attesting to HIS Righteousness, HIS Majesty, and HIS Manifold Mercy for all who look to HIM. He trusted in GOD of Israel, sought HIS HELP, and PRAISED GOD of Israel and HIS Holy Name at all times. Scriptures about King David proved inspirational for my turning to the GOD of Israel, for if King David was so loved of GOD, then why not me also.  

 

Samuel said to Saul, Thou hast done foolishly: thou hast not kept the commandment of the LORD thy God, which he commanded thee: for now would the LORD have established thy kingdom upon Israel for ever. But now thy kingdom shall not continue: the LORD hath sought him a man after his own heart, and the LORD hath commanded him to be captain over his people, because thou hast not kept that which the LORD commanded thee.”   I Samuel 13:13,14

 

KING DAVID FEARED THE CREATOR GOD OF ISRAEL AND LIVED TO EXALT HIM

 

Bless the LORD, O my soul. O LORD my God, thou art very great; thou art clothed with honour and majesty.

 

“Who maketh his angels spirits; his ministers a flaming fire: Who laid the foundations of the earth, that it should not be removed for ever.”   Psalm 104:1,4,5

 

O LORD, how manifold are thy works! in wisdom hast thou made them all: the earth is full of thy riches. The glory of the LORD shall endure for ever: the LORD shall rejoice in his works.   Psalm 104:24,31

 

Some people want to believe that when the CREATOR said, “Let us make man”, that it is a reference to GOD and JC. If that were the case, GOD would not have said that HE Created the Earth all by “MYSELF”. Nevertheless, HE was making a reference to HIMSELF and “WISDOM”:

 

“Counsel is mine, and sound wisdom: I am understanding; I have strength.


“The LORD possessed me in the beginning of his way, before his works of old. I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, or ever the earth was.”   Proverbs 8:14,22,23

 

HE HATH MADE THE EARTH BY HIS POWER, HE HATH ESTABLISHED THE WORLD BY HIS WISDOM, and hath stretched out the heaven by his understanding.” Jeremiah 51:15

 

Hence, know and understand that there was no JC – not in the BEGINNING, not during the Roman Era, not now, and not ever! If anyone would know about JC, it would have been King David, the man after GOD’s own heart, for GOD showed him ALL HIS TRUTH. And if the CREATOR had wanted all people to know about this man-god, JC, HE would have made him known to us as HE has made us know Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, Moses, Joshua, Samuel, and, of course, King David and the Prophets. My question is, “Why can’t people see that”, rather than see the mysterious imagined narratives in the “New Testament” that have never come to fruition and that have no connection with GOD’s Statutes and Ordinances – not one iota! And it is very important to know that this Christian book defies everything the CREATOR exemplifies and that HE has set in stone for our information to know, live, and do forever.

 

Wherefore thou art great, O LORD God: for THERE IS NONE LIKE THEE, neither is there any God beside thee, according to all that we have heard with our ears.   II Samuel 7:22

 

The LORD rewarded me according to my righteousness: according to the cleanness of my hands hath he recompensed me. For I have kept the ways of the LORD, and have not wickedly departed from my God. For all his judgments were before me: and as for his statutes, I did not depart from them. I was also upright before him, and have kept myself from mine iniquity. Therefore the LORD hath recompensed me according to my righteousness; according to my cleanness in his eye sight. With the merciful thou wilt shew thyself merciful, and with the upright man thou wilt shew thyself upright. With the pure thou wilt shew thyself pure; and with the froward thou wilt shew thyself unsavoury.”   II Samuel 22:21 - 27

 

Thou hast delivered me from the strivings of the people; and thou hast made me the head of the heathen: a people whom I have not known shall serve me. As soon as they hear of me, they shall obey me: the strangers shall submit themselves unto me.

 

“The LORD liveth; and blessed be my rock; and let the God of my salvation be exalted. It is God that avengeth me, and subdueth the people under me.

 

“Great deliverance giveth he to his king; and sheweth mercy to his anointed, to David, and to his seed for evermore.   Psalm 18:43,44,46,47,50

 

For sure GOD did avenge King David of his enemies, just as HE avenged the Nation of Israel of theirs throughout the “Old Testament”. But HE did not hesitate to severely punish our forefathers when they were wicked.

 

If JC is supposed to be GOD’s “begotten son”, why did HE standby and watch while JC was crucified and not avenge his enemies? Oh, you believe that JC died for people’s sins, huh? Well, know and understand that this is not the WAY of GOD! HIS WORD is that the wicked will pay for their sins. Let’s not forget the curse upon the World because of Adam and Eve’s sins: “The day ye eat thereof is the day ye shall die”. So also was it the CREATOR that destroyed all the wicked with the FLOOD, and HE is doing the same thing again these days except with a covid-19 pandemic. It is GOD’s WAY to set examples in order that people will obey HIS VOICE, stop sinning, and LIVE and enjoy prolonged days! Moses tried to die for Israel’s sins, but GOD would not hear of it!

 

Yet now, if thou wilt forgive their sin--; and if not, blot me, I pray thee, out of thy book which thou hast written. And the LORD said unto Moses, Whosoever hath sinned against me, him will I blot out of my book.   Exodus 32:32,33

 

Behold, all souls are mine; as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son is mine: THE SOUL THAT SINNETH, IT SHALL DIE.   Ezekiel 18:4  

 

Therefore, do not buy the lie that this man-god, JC, died for your sins. If he did die for your sins, then realize that there are wicked walking GOD’s Earth for JC did nothing to end it. Let’s be real; JC’s death does not end wickedness? Think about it; this is a joke. It’s just not at all funny. The CREATOR GOD wants the Righteous walking HIS Earth!

 

If the wicked will turn from all his sins that he hath committed, and keep all my statutes, and do that which is lawful and right, he shall surely live, he shall not die. All his transgressions that he hath committed, they shall not be mentioned unto him: in his righteousness that he hath done he shall live. Have I any pleasure at all that the wicked should die? saith the Lord GOD: and not that he should return from his ways, and live? But when the righteous turneth away from his righteousness, and committeth iniquity, and doeth according to all the abominations that the wicked man doeth, shall he live? All his righteousness that he hath done shall not be mentioned: in his trespass that he hath trespassed, and in his sin that he hath sinned, in them shall he die.   Ezekiel 18:21 - 24

 

REMEMBER: THE CREATOR IS GOOD AND JUST AND JUDGES THE WICKED

 

The LORD is known by the judgment which he executeth: the wicked is snared in the work of his own hands…THE WICKED SHALL BE TURNED INTO HELL, AND ALL THE NATIONS THAT FORGET GOD.   Psalm 9:16,17

 

I will bless the LORD at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth. MY SOUL SHALL MAKE HER BOAST IN THE LORD: the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad. O magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt his name together.”   Psalm 34:1 – 3

 

King David had wanted to build the first Temple for the GOD of Israel, but GOD told Nathan the Prophet to tell him that he couldn’t because his hands were full of blood. Therefore, GOD told him that his son, Solomon, could build HIS Temple to HIS Holy Name. Nonetheless, GOD of Israel gave all the patterns for HIS Temple to no one but to King David.

 

Take heed now; for the LORD hath chosen thee to build an house for the sanctuary: be strong, and do it. Then David gave to Solomon his son the pattern of the porch, and of the houses thereof, and of the treasuries thereof, and of the upper chambers thereof, and of the inner parlours thereof, and of the place of the mercy seat, And the pattern of all that he had by the spirit, of the courts of the house of the LORD, and of all the chambers round about, of the treasuries of the house of God, and of the treasuries of the dedicated things:   I Chronicles 28:10 - 12

 

THEREFORE KING DAVID GAVE THANKS UNTO THE LORD ALL HIS DAYS

 

All this, said David, the LORD made me understand in writing by his hand upon me, even all the works of this pattern.   I Chronicles 28:19

 

Thou hast delivered me from the strivings of the people; and thou hast made me the head of the heathen: a people whom I have not known shall serve me. As soon as they hear of me, they shall obey me: the strangers shall submit themselves unto me.

 

Therefore will I give thanks unto thee, O LORD, among the heathen, and sing praises unto thy name. Great deliverance giveth he to his king; and sheweth mercy to his anointed, to David, and to his seed for evermore.”   Psalm 18:43,44,49,50

 

GOD of Israel was obviously in King David’s heart and soul, thereby, he was a man after GOD’s own heart and, thus the reason, GOD made his lineage to reign over HIS Kingdom, forever.

 

KING DAVID WAS THE PERFECT LEADER TO SET EXAMPLES FOR US TO FOLLOW FOR INDEED HE HAD NO MERCY FOR THE WICKED

 

I will sing of mercy and judgment: unto thee, O LORD, will I sing. I will behave myself wisely in a perfect way. O when wilt thou come unto me? I will walk within my house with a perfect heart.

 

A froward heart shall depart from me: I will not know a wicked person.

 

Mine eyes shall be upon the faithful of the land, that they may dwell with me: he that walketh in a perfect way, he shall serve me. He that worketh deceit shall not dwell within my house: he that telleth lies shall not tarry in my sight. I will early destroy all the wicked of the land; that I may cut off all wicked doers from the city of the LORD.” Psalm 101:1,2,4,6 – 8

 

“The glory of the LORD shall endure for ever: the LORD shall rejoice in his works. He looketh on the earth, and it trembleth: he toucheth the hills, and they smoke. I will sing unto the LORD as long as I live: I will sing praise to my God while I have my being. My meditation of him shall be sweet: I will be glad in the LORD. Let the sinners be consumed out of the earth, and LET THE WICKED BE NO MORE. BLESS THOU THE LORD, O MY SOUL. PRAISE YE THE LORD.      Psalm 104:31 - 35

 

Now that we know the heart of King David, what was GOD’s TRUTH that kept him on GOD’s Paths of Righteousness?

 

It shall be, when he sitteth upon the throne of his kingdom, that he shall write him a copy of this law in a book out of that which is before the priests the Levites: And it shall be with him, and he shall read therein all the days of his life: that he may learn to fear the LORD his God, to keep all the words of this law and these statutes, to do them: That his heart be not lifted up above his brethren, and that he turn not aside from the commandment, to the right hand, or to the left: to the end that he may prolong his days in his kingdom, he, and his children, in the midst of Israel.”   Deuteronomy 27:18 – 20

 

Just as Our GOD Commanded the Kings of Israel to read HIS LAW, HE also Commanded that the Children of Israel and the Stranger living among us read HIS LAW, as well.

 

Moses commanded them, saying, At the end of every seven years, in the solemnity of the year of release, in the feast of tabernacles, When all Israel is come to appear before the LORD thy God in the place which he shall choose, THOU SHALT READ THIS LAW before all Israel in their hearing. Gather the people together, men, and women, and children, and thy stranger that is within thy gates, that they may hear, and that they may learn, and fear the LORD your God, and observe to do all the words of this law: And that their children, which have not known any thing, may hear, and learn to fear the LORD your God, as long as ye live in the land whither ye go over Jordan to possess it.”   Deuteronomy 31:10 – 13

 

At all costs know that GOD’s LAW and the keeping of it, as it is written, is our Lifeline and our means to connect to the CREATOR GOD of Israel.

 

-GOD’s REQUIREMENTS AND HIS BOOK OF THE LAW (As per HIS Laws, Statutes, and Judgments)

 

The LORD said unto Moses, Come up to me into the mount, and be there: and I will give thee tables of stone, and a law, and commandments which I have written; that THOU MAYEST TEACH THEM.   Exodus 24:12

 

Now, Israel, what doth the LORD thy God require of thee, but to fear the LORD thy God, to walk in all his ways, and to love him, and to serve the LORD thy God with all thy heart and with all thy soul, To keep the commandments of the LORD, and his statutes, which I command thee this day for thy good?   Deuteronomy 10:12,13

 

“Only be thou strong and very courageous, that thou mayest observe to do according to all the law, which Moses my servant commanded thee: turn not from it to the right hand or to the left, that thou mayest prosper whithersoever thou goest. This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success. Joshua 1:7,8

 

The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple. The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes. The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether. More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb. Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward.   Psalm 19:7 – 11

 

Observance of GOD’s Holy Days are also HIS Requirements. And it is of utmost import for me to make it perfectly clear that all GOD’s Holy Days entail HIM and the Land of Israel, and they are for absolute worship of HIM: Passover, Feast of Weeks, Feast of Trumpets, Day of Atonement, and the Feast of Tabernacles (Dwelling in Booths).

 

To add to GOD’s Commandments is a sin, and to add observances of Gentile (pagan) holidays is most definitely out of the question!

 

Now therefore hearken, O Israel, unto the statutes and unto the judgments, which I teach you, for to do them, that ye may live, and go in and possess the land which the LORD God of your fathers giveth you. Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the LORD your God which I command you. Deuteronomy 4:1,2

 

-OBEDIENCE TO GOD’s WORD

 

I will make thy seed to multiply as the stars of heaven, and will give unto thy seed all these countries; and in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; Because that Abraham obeyed my voice, and kept my charge, my commandments, my statutes, and my laws. Genesis 26:4,5

 

“When thou art in tribulation, and all these things are come upon thee, even in the latter days, if thou turn to the LORD thy God, and shalt be obedient unto his voice; (For the LORD thy God is a merciful God;) he will not forsake thee, neither destroy thee, nor forget the covenant of thy fathers which he sware unto them.”   Deuteronomy 4:30,31

 

As the nations which the LORD destroyeth before your face, so shall ye perish; because ye would not be obedient unto the voice of the LORD your God.   Deuteronomy 8:20

 

YE SHALL WALK AFTER THE LORD YOUR GOD, and fear him, and keep his commandments, and obey his voice, and YE SHALL SERVE HIM, AND CLEAVE UNTO HIM.   Deuteronomy 13:4

 

Samuel said, Hath the LORD as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the LORD? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams.   I Samuel 15:22

 

“Now the days of David drew nigh that he should die; and he charged Solomon his son, saying, I go the way of all the earth: be thou strong therefore, and shew thyself a man; And keep the charge of the LORD thy God, to walk in his ways, to keep his statutes, and his commandments, and his judgments, and his testimonies, as it is written in the law of Moses, that thou mayest prosper in all that thou doest, and whithersoever thou turnest thyself: That the LORD may continue his word which he spake concerning me, saying, If thy children take heed to their way, to walk before me in truth with all their heart and with all their soul, there shall not fail thee (said he) a man on the throne of Israel.”   I Kings 2:1 - 4

 

-RIGHTEOUSNESS

 

“Ye that did cleave unto the LORD your God are alive every one of you this day. Behold, I have taught you statutes and judgments, even as the LORD my God commanded me, that ye should do so in the land whither ye go to possess it. Keep therefore and do them; for this is your wisdom and your understanding in the sight of the nations, which shall hear all these statutes, and say, Surely this great nation is a wise and understanding people. For what nation is there so great, who hath God so nigh unto them, as the LORD our God is in all things that we call upon him for? And what nation is there so great, that hath statutes and judgments so righteous as all this law, which I set before you this day? Deuteronomy 4:4 – 8

 

It shall be our righteousness, if we observe to do all these commandments before the LORD our God, as he hath commanded us.   Deuteronomy 6:25

 

As soon as we read and internalize Deuteronomy 28th Chapter, it should be clear that we are indeed of the SEED of the Biblical Israelites. And if we are serious about following GOD’s Righteous Path, then HE will mercifully open our eyes to know the Truth. At that time HE will put it in our hearts to seek HIM out in the “Old Testament”, wherein is written the LAW, WORD, and VOICE of the GOD of Israel. We will be made the wiser, and HE will renew the Covenant HE made between HIM and the SEED of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.

 

On the other hand, if descendants of Slaves continue to follow after the heathen who hold us captive and observe their customs, holidays, and their religions, then know of a certainty they will never realize GOD’s TRUTH. The CREATOR will enable them to believe as they choose and in the end punish them for their wickedness and for their pagan ways of worship. This is unfortunate, as all people should want the opportunity to know the True CREATOR GOD and HIS AWESOME WAYS of Righteousness, not to mention the perks that come with obeying HIS Book of the Law.

 

Moreover, as was King David a man after GOD’s own heart, so also should we all strive to follow his lead. And the significant reason is because we are in the darkest days of our generation, and we need the HELP and SALVATION of the ONE True and Living GOD to carry us through to HIS SALVATION for “vain is the help of man”!

 

David spake unto the LORD

the words of this song in the day that the LORD had delivered him

out of the hand of all his enemies, and out of the hand of Saul:

And he said, The LORD is my rock, and my fortress,

and my deliverer; The God of my rock; in him will I trust:

he is my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my high tower,

and my refuge, my saviour; thou savest me from violence.

I will call on the LORD, who is worthy to be praised:

so shall I be saved from mine enemies.

II Samuel 22:1 - 4

 

“As for God, his way is perfect: the word of the LORD is tried:

he is a buckler to all those that trust in him.

For who is God save the LORD?

or who is a rock save our God?

Psalm 18:30,31

 

I wisdom dwell with prudence,

and find out knowledge of witty inventions.

The fear of the LORD is to hate evil:

pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way,

and the froward mouth, do I hate.

Proverbs 8:12,13
