Christ came to fulfill the Old Covenant.  He paid the price for Adam’s sin and made a way back into fellowship with God.  Sin was the problem and Jesus is the answer.

When he was offered up by the High Priest as a sinless sacrifice He fulfilled all that had ever been required in the Old Covenant.

When He breathed His last on the cross and cried out, “It is finished,” the curtain in the temple was ripped in half.  God left the Holy of Holies on earth signifying the end of the Old Covenant.   When Christ rose from the dead and ascended into heaven He poured out his blood on the eternal alter of God in the heavenly temple of God.  All the sacrifices of the Old Testament had been but a foreshadowing of this event.

When we confess Jesus as Lord and believe in our heart that God raised Him from the dead as it says in Romans 10:9-10 we shall be saved.  It doesn’t say we might be saved.  It doesn’t say we will be saved by and by.  It says we shall be saved.  The moment we do that we’re born again, recreated, and translated from the old world of sin caused separation from God and death to the new world of fellowship with God and life.

Once we’re saved from the curse of sin we become the righteousness of God.  This means we can stand in the presence of God without any guilt, shame, or fear for we’ve become His children.  And as His children we have the right and the ability to come boldly into our Daddy’s throne room any time we want.

Think of it this way, if you or I walked up to the gate of Buckingham Palace and told the guard, “Let me in I want to see the queen” we wouldn’t even get a smile from one of those guys.  But if Prince Phillip walked up and said the same thing they would immediately usher him into the royal presence.

It’s the same with us and the heavenly Holy of Holies.  God is our Father.  We can enter His presence any time we want.  There’s no need to beg or plead.  It’s our right as His child because we are one with Christ.  He’s the head and we’re the body.  We’re the very living stones built up into His eternal temple.  We’re individually the tabernacles of His Holy Spirit who dwells in us.

Don’t accept less.  Be all that God re-created you to be.  We’re a new creation the old has passed away and behold all has become new.  We dwell this moment in God’s New Jerusalem and collectively we are His Holy Temple.  God the Father is on His throne.  Christ the Lamb that was slain for the sins of the world and yet lives is seated to His right hand.  The Holy Spirit indwells the temple built of living stones.

There is nothing left to be done.  It is finished.  There is nothing we can add.  We have been given the authority to act in the Name of Christ.  We shouldn’t sit back waiting to get good enough.  We shouldn’t expect some hireling to do what God has called us to do.  We’ve been called to take the light of Christ into a world of darkness.

He never told us to build a lamp.  He never told us to pay a lighthouse tender.  He told us to take the light of His love to those sold under bondage to the king of this world.  And we must always remember greater is He who is in us than he who is in the world.

Jesus told us that if we have faith, even if it’s as small as the smallest seed, and we tell the mountain to jump it’ll jump.  So let’s quit waiting for some collective bulldozer to move the mountains and start living as what we are: children of the Most High God.

In the desert God told Moses to speak to the rock.  He has told us to speak to the mountains.    So now, all together on the count of three let’s say to the mountains in our life, “Jump!”

One, two, three.

From the “You can’t make this stuff up” Department:

It is beyond me how the Communists, I’m sorry I mean the Socialists, oh excuse me I mean the Democrats are able to peddle the bilge they’re spewing this election cycle.  But I’m sure that a significant segment of the voting public will swear this bilge is rose water come Election Day.   Now if these Soros-Clinton-Pelosi-Waters supporters were knuckle-dragging drooling Neanderthal types I could understand it.  However, I personally know many very intelligent people who prove they’ve had one too many drinks of Kool-Ade by casting their precious votes for the Party of Obama and the new normal.

And now for some anecdotal proof:

I live in a State that is enjoying record high employment, has received the biggest tax cuts in history, has a balanced budget, millions in a rainy day fund and is ranked near number one in education and healthcare.  In response to this the Pelosi Party has a gubernatorial candidate who says people are starving to death in the streets, rotting away on gurneys in the halls of broken down hospitals, and the pining away for the good old days of presidents who bow to kings and a perpetual Great Recession.

Nationally the party of globalism, open borders, and mobs as always promises one thing and plans on delivering another.  They promise to fight for the little guy, protect Social Security, provide health care for all, and rainbows every day of the week.  If given control of the House and/or the Senate they will deliver years of Kavanaugh style show trials and though their leader tells them not to talk about it they will impeach President Trump in 2019.

Currently their propaganda arm in the Corporations Once Known as the Mainstream Media foist what they hope is a self-fulfilling prophecy of a huge blue wave on the low information voters.  To facilitate this fever dream and create a spectacle they hope will overwhelm our border agents, detention camps and legal system they’re financing and coordinating an army of gang-age males hiding behind the skirts of women and children.  Marching north after violently storming across Mexico’s southern border carrying the flags of Guatemala and Honduras the publicity flacks of the ABCCBSNBCCNNMSNBCPBSNPR Cartel tell us over and over these are peaceful hardworking people are peaceful asylum seekers and not the gate crashing pawns we can see tearing down fences and forcing their way into Mexico.

Promising to raise taxes, increase regulations, expand welfare, shut down the oil and coal industries, impeach Kavanaugh and President Trump the campaign slogan for the America Last fellow-travelers should be “Let’s Make America Miserable Again!”  All I can say is if you buy this bilge I’ve got a bridge you can buy right here.

We Wrestle Not Against Flesh and Blood October 1, 2018

Watching the recent political theater that our ever more divided country serves up as leadership reminds me that the natural man cannot receive the things of God for they’re foolishness to him.  The mockery of the late night political hacks masquerading as comedians or of the not even close to being funny Democrat shills haunting SNL reminds us that weeping may endure for a night but joy comes in the morning.

I wonder if someone came forward and said that Nancy Pelosi sexually abused them when they were a minor but they can’t remember where, or when, how they got there, how they got home, and everyone they said was a witness denied it … do you think the Congressional Ethics Committee would investigate it?  Would the ABCCBSNBCPBSCNNMSNBC Cartel do wall-to-wall panel discussion about the validity of the claims?

As we watch these show trials staged for no other reason than to destroy the reputation and life of a man who the testimony of all who know him say is impeccable don’t lose heart.  What the enemy means for evil God can turn to good.  When we see what appears to be all of the media from New York to Hollywood piling on don’t despair the enemy may come in like a flood but God is well able to lift up a standard just as Moses lifted a serpent in the wilderness.  Look with your spiritual eyes and see the real battle for we don’t wrestle against flesh and blood.  We battle against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.

We’ll never have the strength to stand for what’s right until we hit our knees.  Faith is the answer and prayer is the key.  Forget about the unfairness of it for the fallen world is inherently unfair.  Take your eyes off the here and now and get a view of eternity.  All of this will pass away.  Remember God not only wins in the end He’s won already.  Stop living in the world.  Jesus said we must be born again born from above.  If we confess Him as Lord if we believe God has raised Him from the dead we will be saved.  The moment we do that we enter into His kingdom.  We die to this world and we’re born into the new heaven and the new earth.  And we’ve done all the dying we’ll ever do.  Our body will stop one day but we’ll live for all eternity in Him.

While it may be entertaining and it may make a world of difference here and now all this back and forth between one side and another is merely man re-arranging the deck chairs on the Titanic.  Looking back did it make any difference which side of the deck someone was standing on?  We’re they on the left or the right?  When the ship went down both sides hit the water.

In a hundred years no one will know who we were.  Some descendent may know our name, maybe even where we were born and where we died.  But they won’t know who we are.  In a thousand years no one will even know we were here.  In a hundred thousand years America will have been erased from memory.  But in an eternity from now we who choose to live in Christ will still be praising Him filled with joy and living hope.

The political and social battles of this life may make good TV, they may give us endless hours of animated conversations, and they’ll have an impact on the current course of this fallen world.  But remember they aren’t what they seem.  It isn’t about right versus left.  It’s always about good versus evil, light versus dark, and life versus death.  But never fear Christ is here.  He has won the war and He has told us that “It is finished.”

So accept the victory and stop fighting a battle that’s already been won.

What is Righteousness and How Do I Get It? September 14, 2018

Posted by Dr. Robert Owens in Religion, Uncategorized.

The first part is easy.  Righteousness is the ability to stand in the presence of God as if we had never sinned.  When we stand in righteousness before God the Father it is without any sense of fear, condemnation, or inferiority.  We have this righteousness because we are now children of God through Christ and as children we are members of the family and have a rightful place.

Just think of Buckingham Palace as heaven.  If you walked up to the gate and said, “Let me in” the guards would turn you away.  If Prince Charles walked up and said let me in the guards would open the door and bow as he walked past.  It’s the same way with heaven.  If we show up covered in our sin we will get turned away.  If we show up in Christ, as a member of His body the gates will swing open and glory to God we will at last be home.

This was promised to us through the prophet Isaiah long ago, “All your children shall be taught by the Lord, and great shall be the peace of your children.  In righteousness you shall be established; you shall be far from oppression, for you shall not fear; and from terror, for it shall not come near you.”

As natural men we have a sin consciousness.  We inherently know that we are not worthy to stand in the presence of God.  We have knowledge of our own weakness to the sins which so easily overtake us.  This has kept us slaves to sin.  This consciousness of our own sin and weakness destroys our abilities and short-circuits our ability to live as God intends.

That is why we must be born again.  For in our re-birth, our re-creation in Christ we acquire righteousness.  Without it we could no more be children of God than an ant could be a man.  For without righteousness the Father could take no pleasure in us as His children since we would shrink away from the fire of His love since it would then be the fire of His judgement, for it is the same fire.

This righteousness is the gift of God.  It is not something we could have ever earned for ourselves.   Before we’re born again we were without Christ. We were aliens from the commonwealth of Israel and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the world.  We were bankrupt, sold out to sin, and without the ability to help ourselves.

This is why God laid our sins upon Christ.  This is why Christ died upon the cross.  He paid the penalty demanded by justice.  Sin had to be paid for before a fallen mankind could be re-created and in His death, the substitutionary death of the sinless for the sinful the penalty was paid in full.  And not only did Christ pay our penalty He descended into Hell, defeated our advisory stripping of his authority over humanity.  Then He rose again to give us the promise of eternal life recreated in union with Him through faith.

In the Old Testament Israel had righteousness reckoned to them but in the new creation it actually becomes our very nature because Christ Himself is our Righteousness.

He is the vine and we are the branches.  And since the vine is righteous so are the branches.  And so should the fruit of the branches be.  So we should produce the fruit of righteousness in this world and be a blessing as we are blessed.  And we are able to bear a type of fruit that Christ could not when He walked this earth.  He could heal the sick, raise the dead, and calm the storm.  But He could not lead people to salvation for He had not yet paid the price.  He had not yet opened the way for us to be re-united with God erasing the sin debt of Adam’s fall.

So that is righteousness, right standing with God, the ability to stand in God’s presence as if we had never sinned.  We get it through confessing with our lips that Jesus is Lord and by believing in our heart that God has raised Him from the dead.

And once we have it we are tasked by Christ to share our witness so that all mankind has the opportunity to have it too.
