FAITH - Righteousness & The Word of God

It is important currently to discuss the Kingdom of God.

There are three main scriptures that I believe explain what the Kingdom of God is:

  • Romans 14:17 “For the Kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.”

  • 1 Corinthians 4:20 “For the Kingdom of God is not in word but in power.”

  • Luke 17:20-21 “…The Kingdom of God does not come with observation, nor will they say, see here! or see there! For indeed the Kingdom of God is within you.”

There is only one way to enter the Kingdom of God:

  • John 3:3 “…Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the Kingdom of God.”

  • John 3:5-6“…Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and Spirit, he cannot enter the Kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.”

Let’s tie these scriptures together with our foundational scripture on faith.

  • Hebrews 10:8-10 “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart (that is, the word of faith which we preach); that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart, one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”

We enter the Kingdom of God by believing, having faith in Jesus Christ within our hearts, confessing with our mouths and being baptized in the Holy Spirit.

  • The Kingdom of God is a spiritual Kingdom that resides in our hearts.

  • The Holy Spirit dwells within us with power.

  • We are righteous because we believe in our hearts the Lord Jesus.

  • The Kingdom of God is righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.

The Word of God

Matthew 4:4 “It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.”

Isaiah 55:11 “So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void, but it shall accomplish what I please, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.”

Read Romans 4:1-3

  • Abraham believed in the Lord, and He accounted it to him for righteousness.

Read Romans 4:13-22

  • The word of the Lord to Abraham was not through the law, but through the righteousness of faith.

  • Law brings about wrath.

  • Abraham did not waver at the promise of God through unbelief.

  • Abraham was strengthened in faith, giving glory to God, fully convinced that what He had promised He was also able to perform.

Read Hebrews Chapter 11 – The Great Hall of Faith

  • As you have read Hebrews many are the saints of God who have walked by faith believing in the word of God, having obtained a good testimony. (Hebrews 11:39)

  • May we be obedient walking by faith according to any direction given by the Lord.

  • May we be found faithful walking by faith according to the written word of God.

  • May we be found faithful to be walking out in faith a prophetic word given to us.

  • May we be fully convinced that what the Lord has promised us, He will also perform it.
