Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ Jesus,

He personally bore our sins in His [own] body on the tree [as on an altar and offered Himself on it], that we might die (cease to exist) to sin and live to righteousness. By His wounds you have been healed.1 Peter 2:24 (AMPC)

And the work of righteousness shall be peace; and the effect of righteousness quietness and assurance for ever.Isaiah 32:17 (KJV)

The redemptive work of Christ Jesus made all who believe and confess Him the righteousness of YHWH (with inserted vowels YAHWEH transliterated JEHOVAH commonly interpreted the LORD). To be redeemed by the spotless blood of Jesus is to have a re-created or reborn or regenerated spirit which facilitated the ability to be reconciled unto the Family of God; and to be reconciled unto the LORD God restored all rights and privileges as His sons & daughters. For the only begotten Son of God was The Seed of God sent to be sowed for the harvest of more sons & daughters of God. This restoration guarantees an entitlement which isn’t based on any worldly qualification. Rather it’s an inheritance secured by the perfect obedience of Jesus the Anointed One and His Anointing to the will of the LORD God on behalf of all humankind. Therefore, we may partake of the outpouring to Christ Jesus: “power and riches and wisdom and strength and honour and glory and blessingRevelation 5:12 (KJV), manifest through the power of the Holy Spirit. We are empowered and enabled to fulfill our God-given assignment(s) by the LORD’s power and provision. For God sends us well equipped with far more than is necessary to establish His covenant on earth as it is in Heaven; of such are the “greater works” the Lord Jesus proclaimed (refer to John 14:12). Those “in Christ” were made righteous by the finished work of Christ Jesus, and manifestation of the inheritance thereof involves being fully persuaded that you have the title-deed. As explained by W. E. Vine, assurance is the secondary meaning of faith.1 Absolute confidence in God’s power through us requires faith which serves a believer. In other words, faith is a servant. To paraphrase that which a man-of-God has succinctly said: “don’t let faith sit on the couch . . . keep faith working . . . faith will obey you” (refer to Luke 17:5-9). The Word of God describes the undoubting conviction of Abraham, that God was able to keep His promises, and it (faith) was counted unto him as righteousness (refer to Romans 4:3). Just as we entered the Kingdom of God by the faith of YESHUA/JESUS, it is by faith that we stand in the gap, make-up the hedge, and move forward in the way of God for self and others (refer to Eph 2:8-9; Gal 2:20; Rom 3:21-22; Heb 11:6).
