A Basic Truth Manual for the Reformation Christians of America
A Basic Truth Manual for the Reformation Christians of America – If God, instead of destroying America as it is headed, decides Reformation will be had by His Sovereign Hand in the destruction of HIS enemies* unto the Glory of His Justice and the spread of Righteousness unto the Glory of His Mercy and Grace!:
*Get it RIGHT people, we are to love OUR ENEMIES (we carry resentments based on OUR OWN SENSE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS AND STANDARDS DAILY)- NOT GOD’s ENEMIES -Psalm 139- We are NOT calling down power on US to destroy people we detest for OUR reasons, we are, as the Psalmists did, calling God’s judgment on those who hate Him, we are calling on God to avenge HIS BELOVED and to AVENGE HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS according to His Will and unto HIS GLORY.
1) Righteousness=God’s Law=God’s Character=Life= Truth=Jesus
2) Justice of God = God measures ANY VOLITIONAL THOUGHT OR ACTION against His Righteousness (see #1) to assess if the volition is Righteous.
3) ANY SIN = Unrighteousness = existence functioning without the clothing of God’s Righteousness (God sheds the Blood of animals after Adam and Eves’ sin and makes CLOTHING of the skins. Jesus sheds His Blood and Clothes the Elect in the Spirit….see?)
4) If Unrighteousness is the result of the measure of Justice = BALANCE must be achieved for the variance from the STANDARD which is, as the Bible said, Righteousness (see#1)
5) When the Elect is Justified unto Relationship with God, with the IMPUTATION (legal designation given by the Father because of Christ’s work) of Righteousness and Sinlessness and begins his walk on earth = Sanctification begins then and the ACTUAL Righteousness of Christ is gradually INFUSED within our nature over the rest of life here; thus we begin to be able to obey the Law of God (act in Righteousness)
Romans 8:4 (ESV) 4 in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.
6) When the body dies, the disembodied soul is hidden in Christ until His Second Coming = Glorification occurs at the 2nd Coming and the final impartation of Righteousness of Christ is bestowed upon the Souls of the Elect as they are given their Glorified Bodies and they are finally in the fullness of their Christlikeness for Eternity! At that point the ENTIRE Law is fulfilled/accomplished as stated in Matthew 5:17-18 (ESV)
17 “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them.
18 For truly, I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not an iota, not a dot, will pass from the Law until all is accomplished.
7) This means that, when Christ came as the last Sacrifice, this was the FULFILLMENT of ALL ceremonial laws which included sacrificial laws, cleanliness laws, separation laws for the Jews, food laws etc which Symbolized the work of the Christ and the reality of the cleanness and separation from the world which would happen when one is Justified in Christ. NOW when the Elect are Sanctified there is a partial fulfillment of the Moral and Judicial Laws as the Elect begin imperfectly to obey them on earth…BUT the TOTAL FULFILLMENT will be at the Glorification of the Saints at the Second Coming:
Romans 8:19-23 (ESV) 19 For the creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the sons of God. 20 For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of him who subjected it, in hope 21 that the creation itself will be set free from its bondage to corruption and obtain the freedom of the glory of the children of God. 22 For we know that the whole creation has been groaning together in the pains of childbirth until now. 23 And not only the creation, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for adoption as sons, the redemption of our bodies.
