RIGHTEOUSNESS  6-21-20

Righteousness is our mantle. We have inherited righteousness which is God righteousness. Faith or trust in God is righteousness. Starting with Abraham. Even before Jesus finished his work. A mantle is a covering also an important job that passes from one generation to the next. If God judges us in righteousness then he favors those who are righteous. He sees himself in us. Righteousness  becomes us our position and state of being. Right- wiseness 

Isa 64:6  For we have all become like one who is unclean [ceremonially, like a leper], and all our righteousness (our best deeds of rightness and justice) is like filthy rags or a polluted garment; we all fade like a leaf, and our iniquities, like the wind, take us away [far from God's favor, hurrying us toward destruction].

ROM 1:17 This gospel unveils a continual revelation of Gods righteousness a perfect righteousness given to us when we believe.
