Re:Vitalise I Righteousness produces Dominion and Authority
HOW DO YOU ACT ON YOUR RIGHT STANDING WITH GOD?
Adam had the ability to exercise authority upon the earth ( Genesis 1:26), we as believers have the right to use the power giving to us. Until we act upon the authority which your right standing with God has given you, you operate on the level of an unbeliever.
He had the ability to partake and enjoy everything that the Father had provided for him ( Genesis 2:16), God has blessed us with every blessing in abundance and you can't appropriate the provision unless you first know the promise ( Romans 10:17).
He had the ability to protect what Father had given Him to enjoy ( Genesis 2:15), we are to rule and reign with Christ ( Romans 5:17) and we have authority over all of Satan's ability to act (Luke 10:19).
Adam had fellowship with God with because He was in right standing with Him (Genesis 3:8),
' God is faithful, by Him you were called unto the fellowship of His son, Jesus Christ our Lord' (1 Cor 1:9).
SIX THINGS THINGS RIGHTEOUSNESS GIVES TO US BASED ON THE FINISHED WORK OF THE CROSS
Our standing with God is restored (Hebrews 10:19-22), Righteousness moves the old sin-consciousness that has robbed us of confidence in His Presence. Righteousness restores to man a standing before the Father on the same grounds that Jesus enjoyed during His earthly ministry.
Remember the fearlessness of Jesus in the Presence of the Father (John 11:41-42), of the devil (Matthew 8:28-34), of threatening condition ( Matthew 8: 23 -27) and death ( Luke 7:12-16)
Righteousness restores to us our lost fellowship, fellowship illustrated in Jesus' life, he approached the Father with the same freedom that a son approaches his parents , he spoke to his Father like a child and there was no sense of guilt, sin, or complex condemnation in his life.
The Righteousness or right standing that Jesus had gave him the most perfect fellowship with the Father, righteousness restores our lost faith and now we can come in boldness into the presence of God knowing that our worthiness is based on the blood of Jesus and not on our good works.
Righteousness restores our peace, not only do we have peace but we have the peace of God (John 14:27), it restores quietness and rest (Isaiah 26:3 ; 32:17) and we no longer have to be caught up with the cares of this world.
Through Righteousness restores to man the same freedom that Jesus enjoyed, freedom from the fear of satan, sin and sickness, only comes through freedom that is Jesus (Romans 6:7 ; 8:2).
We are the sons and daughters of God, we are heirs of God and equal heirs with Jesus (Romans 8:17) , we have inherited the name of Jesus (John 16:23-24), the Holy Spirit (Ephesians 1:13-14) and His victory (1 Corinthians 15:57)
Acting on your righteousness will bring results, Faith without corresponding action is dead and you will have to mature in order to appropriate the provision.

What do you believe?
#Christianity is the life of #God (the Creator) in human beings (that's us). What this means, practically, is that each day, you take steps to get to know this God, through His Word, the Bible (https://classic.biblegateway.com) ,by building a relationship with Him, through faith in Jesus Christ.
In the same way, as soon as your baby is born, in fact from the moment you "know" that you are pregnant, you spend time getting to know the baby, letting them know that each day
I ask you, then, would you like to be in a relationship with #God, the God of the Bible, the God that made this beautiful earth, through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ?
The God that gave Jesus Christ to us:
This the WHAT
John 3:16-18 The Message (MSG)
“This is how much God loved the world: He gave his Son, his one and only Son. And this is why: so that no one need be destroyed; by believing in him, anyone can have a whole and lasting life. God didn’t go to all the trouble of sending his Son merely to point an accusing finger, telling the world how bad it was. He came to help, to put the world right again. Anyone who trusts in him is acquitted; anyone who refuses to trust him has long since been under the death sentence without knowing it. And why? Because of that person’s failure to believe in the one-of-a-kind Son of God when introduced to him."**
And we (using #faith, a bit like #electricity, we know it's there because the lights come on) accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior and get to know Him each day, as we would our own dear friends, loved ones, a spouse.
This is the WHY
"It’s crucial that we keep a firm grip on what we’ve heard so that we don’t drift off. If the old message delivered by the angels was valid and nobody got away with anything, do you think we can risk neglecting this latest message, this magnificent salvation? First of all, it was delivered in person by the Master, then accurately passed on to us by those who heard it from him. All the while God was validating it with gifts through the Holy Spirit, all sorts of signs and miracles, as he saw fit."**
In exchange for following Jesus you will receive peace, freedom, joy (that's laughter whilst your awake, peace whilst you sleep), it will be hard, your friends may disown you because you've become "one of us" but guess what even if you have a tough day, you will never be alone again.
Read this prayer along with me:
This is your YES
"Lord Jesus, thank You for giving Your life for me and forgiving me of my sins so I can have a personal relationship with You. I am sincerely sorry for the mistakes I've made, and I know I need You to help me live right.
Your Word says in Romans 10:9, "If you acknowledge and confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord [recognizing His Power, authority, and majesty as God], and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved."
I believe You are the Son of God, and I confess You as my Saviour and Lord. Take me just as I am, and work in my heart, making me the person You want me to be. I want to live for You, Jesus, and I am so grateful to You for giving me a fresh start in my new life with You today. I love you, Jesus!"**
