Lesson # 9
Righteousness The Fruits Of The Spirit # 1 We will be talking about dealing with spiritual realities, they are not something that the human reasoning can understand through observation or physical sensation, but we're dealing with the basic laws of man's being, the great spiritual laws that govern the unseen forces of life. There are many great forces that come from the re-created human spirit. They are building blocks that are used to build your spiritual life. Ever-Increasing Faith The first building block is faith. Faith is not the product of reasoning. It is required to please God and is the method that he used to create the heavens and the earth, he did it all by his faith. God is a faith God. He works by faith. As re-created, born again men and women, we are to walk by faith and live by faith. Jesus said, if a man has faith as a grain of mustard seed, you could say to this mountain, be thou removed and be thou cast into the sea and the mountain would obey him. Jesus spoke to the sea, the wind, to a dead man, and the laws of nature, they all obeyed him, Jesus did unreasonable things and they all obeyed him. Jesus was not governed by his reasoning, but his spirit, which is above reasoning, ruled for Jesus; Jesus did the most unreasonable things. He stood by the tomb of the decaying body of Lazarus and said to that body, Lazarus come forth, and the spirit of Lazarus entered into his physical body and it was renewed, made perfectly normal and healthy, by faith. Jesus spoke the voice of faith. Words filled with faith dominated the laws of death, and subdue the forces [death, decay and etc.] that have ruled humans since the fall of man [Adam’s sin]. It was the same voice that spoke to the water and it became wine. It was the same voice that spoke to the sea. “Peace be still”. When we realized the source of faith, then we will be able to develop it. When we learn what produces faith, the kind of food and activities that are necessary to develop it, we have the answers that we need. Faith is the product of your spirit, just as wisdom is a product of your spirit, faith is developed and wisdom is enriched by meditating in the word of God The word comes to man through his human spirit, God communicates it to man's reasoning facilities. Man's spirit is governed by God's Spirit, enabling him to bring God's message to man's consciousness through this revelation. By the same token, faith is developed in the human spirit by the word of God. It comes by acting on the word. You must exercise it by acting on the word. Every time you act upon the word, faith becomes stronger. Your physical body becomes stronger as you exercise it, so it is with faith, it must be continually exercised in order to develop it The Fruit of Righteousness Until we clearly understand that we are the righteousness of God in Christ, sin consciousness will make our faith weak and ineffective. Our faith cannot grow and develop, as long as sin consciousness dominates our human spirit. We will not be able to exercise and develop God's wisdom in our daily walk, if sin consciousness dominates our spirit. It's sad but true that many of our churches have developed sin consciousness by preaching sin instead of destroying sin consciousness with the truth. If they would preach the cure for sin consciousness, if they would make clear the fact that man received eternal life and that eternal life was the nature of God, and that the nature of God is righteousness. Man would begin to develop and build upon the new kind of righteousness that has been imparted to him. We all need to begin to say: if I am a new creation, created in Christ Jesus, I must be a righteous creation. If I am a new man, I must be free from the bondage of the old man. If what he says about the righteousness of the new creation is true. Then my spirit is righteous. If it is righteous, then I can stand in the Father's presence without fear of judgment or condemnation. There is therefore now no condemnation to me, because I am in Christ Jesus, a new creation, created in righteousness and holiness and truth. This clears the way for our enjoying the riches of the fullness of our redemption in Christ. This should eliminate sin consciousness because we now know that all that Christ wrought, he wrought for us. His entire substitutionary work, from the time he was made sin until you sit down at the right hand of the Father, was for us. The new creation man is the result of the work of Christ; therefore we know that the new creation man is acceptable and satisfactory to our Heavenly Father. If God is able to satisfy the claims of justice against man, then this new creation man who has received the substance and nature of God can stand in God's presence just as though sin had never been. This new creation man becomes a victor and conquers and an overcome through the word of God and guilt and condemnation have to flee, he actually becomes limitless in the vast possibilities of this life. We can now see the vast possibilities of this re-created spirit. It actually enters into a limitless life. The human mind and body began to lose their place of prominence and the spirit comes to the front and actually begins to take over the rest of the man [body and soul]. It has been held a prisoner through all the ages, now it is set free because guilt and sin consciousness have been abolished. Its blind eyes at last are open. Its paralyzed limbs are at last filled with life. Its voice now becomes the voice of God. Just as soon as you realize the reality of your righteousness in Christ, you are set free. Righteousness is your redemption in Christ Jesus. Satan has no dominion over the man who knows he is the righteousness of God in Christ. This makes the new creation man a master. Perfect conditions between your spirit and your reasoning facilities cannot come about until you realize the reality of your spirits redemption, your spirit righteousness, and your spirit union with God the Father. I believe that what the Scriptures say about us is absolutely true, that God himself is now our very righteousness, and that we are the righteousness of God in him. I am convinced that we are partakers of God's Divine Nature. There is now no condemnation to us who walk in the light as He is the light. You now stand before God complete in Christ. Just remember this life and nature of God is righteousness. Consequently the man who has received the nature of God has automatically become the righteousness of God in Christ. Lesson # 9
