The Righteousness of God is revealed from one level of faith to another. Every part or level you occupy in the Kingdom is a level of righteousness in God.
The Bible is the Book of Righteousness.
2 Cor 3:9 For if the ministration of condemnation be glory, much more doth the ministration of righteousness exceed in glory
Everything about this realm is called righteousness. Christ was raised to sit at the hand of God, the right hand is the realm of righteousness. The realm of righteousness is foreign to many. It is the realm of the right hand of God.
There is a world we are initiated to called righteousness.
2 Peter 3:13 Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.
Malachi 4:2 But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall.
The sun is from above, it is celestial not terrestial. Peter saw a light brighter than the sun at noonday. There is another dimension of power above this world. A righteousness that is from above.
Righteousness doesn’t dwell in the earthly terrain. Daniel said, “Wisdom belongs to the most High God, who lives above the realm of men.
“He leads in the path of righteousness for His name’s sake…” Meaning, many do not know of that path until they are led in it.
There is a world we are engaging, we are interacting with it by revelation and the wisdom of the spirit. It is called righteousness.
Jonah was sent to the city of Nineveh to declare the righteousness of God.
The prophetic is much more than being able to tell a person their problems; there is another level of prophecy higher than that. When I give the counsel of God in wisdom, I have brought in a dimension from above, for he that is from above is above all.
Angels desire to look into the world that is to come. The captain of that world is the Sun of Righteousness. God has given Him a name that is above all names. He is made higher than the heavens.
Ezekiel saw the likeness of a man above the firmament, above the throne in the heavens… Then the Psalmist asked, “What is man that you are mindful of him? For you have crowned him with glory and honor…”
There is a burden of prophecy for the church in this season, and it is to download the righteousness of God.
When you contact the righteousness of God, the things of the earth would lose their taste.
Righteousness is the spirit of the new creation. The body is dead because of sin, but the spirit is alive because of righteousness. Righteousness is higher than death. The kingdom is in righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Ghost.
Men have endangered their lives for the sake of the gospel, because they had come into contact with something higher than themselves. Taking people from the natural world and taking them through the gateway of the spirit, is the burden for this season.
Jacob had an encounter with the gates of heaven. Our work is to cause men to ascend and descend. The season we are in is a season in which the word of the Lord comes to men expressly. This word is the unveiling of the righteousness of God. Right now, there is hardly any difference between those who are Christians and those who are not.
Before Ellen White died, the Lord began to show her generations of Christians. As it got to our time, the lines were completely blurred. If there is anything that will deal with this worldly system, it would be the declaration of the righteousness of God.
2 Peter 2:5 And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly;
Like in the days of Noah, when all were doing what they wanted, judgement was declared to the earth through Noah. Noah was a preacher of righteousness. By faith, he stood to witness to that generation. He brought the flood upon the world of the ungodly by his act of righteousness.
In the prophetic, we do not care about being politically right. Jesus said that he preferred for the Laodecian Church to be hot or cold. In the Kingdom, we see only in white or black.
There are things that the Father hates; the prophet ought to hate the same things, because he carries the burden of the Lord. God said, “Esau have I hated, but Jacob have I loved.” There are things you must hate. Hate is a powerful emotion, it comes from a depth in you. The reason you hate them is because they are not righteousness. The wrath of God is revealed from heaven against every unrighteousness.
The seer sees things the way they are and calls them what they are called. Wickedness is a purposeful intent to inflict pain or suffering or loss or death on someone.
Psalms 7:9 Oh let the wickedness of the wicked come to an end; but establish the just: for the righteous God trieth the hearts and reins.
God is angry with the wicked daily. All the nations that do not fear God will be turned into hell.
The prophetic knows the line, and we judge by the plumb of righteousness. We judge kings, we judge nations, by the plumb of righteousness.
The prophet carries the burden of the Lord in the message of the Lord. When Jonah was sent to Nineveh, he wasn’t given any gift of the Spirit to confirm anything; that word itself had power. When he delivered that message, a city of over hundred thousand people wore sack clothes and mourned before the Lord.
The greatest gift on the face of the earth is called the robe of righteousness. He has given to us the garments of salvation, and clothed us with the robe of righteousness. The former is what is done in us, the latter is what is done through us, and it beautifies us.
The robe of righteousness is costly! Nothing on the face of the earth can pay for the robe of righteousness. It is so beautiful and seamless that the Roman soldiers were fighting over a type of it in the natural (the garments of Jesus at the crucifixion).
You cannot buy the robe of righteousness and that is what we have for this world.
Isaiah 61:10 I will greatly rejoice in the Lord , my soul shall be joyful in my God; for he hath clothed me with the garments of salvation, he hath covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decketh himself with ornaments, and as a bride adorneth herself with her jewels.
Righteousness speaks, that is why we cannot compromise the will of the Lord for us. If you are not aligning with salvation, you will miss the Lord. It is time to enter into ALL of the righteousness of God.
2 Timothy 4:8 Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.
Righteousness is a judge. A spiritual man judges all things so that he himself is judged of no man. It’s time to judge. You will judge with your words, your walk, your life, your giving.
Melchizedek is the king of righteousness, and our priesthood is in the order of Melchizedek. Tithing is righteousness. When you tithe, you are multiplied. Our priesthood is in alignment with a tithe collecting priesthood. Melchizedek received tithe, and our priesthood is in that order. Giving creates room for increase.
Elijah went to the widow of Zarephath in a time of famine; you would think he wanted to rob her. But we are of them who are described as “as poor, yet making many rich”
Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin brings reproach. God increases his people and he makes them stronger than their enemies.
God is increasing the capacity of many. Enlargement is taking place. Many have been patient with the Master; they have walked in the valley and the shadow. It is time to reward you. Enlargement is coming from a place you don’t expect.
The testimony of Jesus in your mouth will not fail. The testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy. He will beautify you with salvation. He would give you beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning and the garment of praise for every spirit of heaviness, so that we may be called the trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, and He would be glorified.
