KEY SCRIPTIRE: 2 Corinth 6:7 KJV” By the word of truth, by the power of God, by the armour of righteousness on the right hand and on the left,”
RIGHTEOUSNESS IS INDEED A WEAPON. Our key scripture says it is an Armour on the left and the right. Every child of God must make up his or her mind to live righteously. The righteous are as bold as a lion. Lions are creatures of resolve. That is, they have no mercy on the enemy whatsoever. They fear nothing and no one. Proverbs 30:30 KJV “A lion which is strongest among beasts, and turneth not away for any;” The righteous man is spiritually very strong and has fear for nothing. Fear has torment and very destructive. Fear is one of the first spirits Satan introduces into the life of the Christian. If it succeeds in settling in the heart, the rest of the devils just follow suit. Righteousness secures you from fear.
It is amazing how certain Christians can tell lies at the slightest condition. The scripture said we grow up to be like Jesus in all things as we speak the truth. Eph 4:15 KJV “But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:” Just consider this analogy, if we speak the truth at all times and that helps us to grow up to be like Jesus in all things, then speaking lies would cause you to grow up to be like the devil in all things. This is very serious. Don’t tell lies. Satan would have the upper hand in your life if you speak lies, for he is the father of lies. . Some Christians involve themselves in all forms of self gratifications. We are not slaves to the flesh to live after its dictates. We are in the spirit and must live by the ability of the spirit. Issues of righteousness relates more to the way we think and what we think about. Sanitize your thoughts. Do not allow all kinds of unscriptural thoughts to parade in your mind. Refuse any wrong thought, and if it seeks to persist resist it steadfastly.
It is too fatal for the Christian to be unrighteous. It can cause you eternal damnation in hell fire. We are not automatically in heaven as Christians. We have to work out our ultimate salvation with fear and trembling. It will take our righteous walk to achieve that. Put on the breastplate of righteousness by deciding to lead a righteous life under all circumstances. Without it you become a fatality going somewhere to happen. May you forbid that in your case. May the Spirit of the Lord continually stir up a sense of living right to God’s glory always. Amen
I am the righteousness of God. I live a life of righteousness. My heart is fully protected from any onslaught of the enemy. I am very strong in the Lord doing exploits to his glory.
