Hungering Righteousness 

 

Most in the Church believe that righteousness is godliness, and unrighteousness is sin. 

 

Definition of righteous

1: acting in accord with divine or moral law free from guilt or sin 

2a morally right or justifiable  

  • righteous decision

b arising from an outraged sense of justice or morality  

  • righteousindignation. 

 

Righteousness- base def.-  right order

 

2 Paths

  1. Heavens righteousness- heaven’s right order (What it looks like in heaven)
  2. Self-Rightousness.  There is a way that seems right to man but it ends in destruction. 

 

This is why Jesus included “on earth as it is in heaven” in His prayer instruction 

2015- “I was lead into the wilderness but the Spirit”(God pulled back the grace covering)  I found myself fussing at God. 

   -I was Desperate

   -“Seek first the Kingdom and its righteousness”

-Those that Hunger and thirst for Righteousness will be filled. 

 

William Tyndale (Bible translator into English in 1526) remodelled the word after an earlier word rihtwis, which would have yielded modern English *rightwise or *rightways. He used it to translate the Hebrew root צדקים (TzDYQ), tzedek, which appears over five hundred times in the Hebrew Bible, and the Greek word δίκαιος (dikaios), which aNew Testamentppears more than two hundred times in the New Testament.

 

The pursuit of heavens righteousness is not a checklist of does and don’ts, but it is allowing the Holy Spirit to teach you Heavens perspective of who you are and how you where built to function. 

 

“This how we do it” -HS

 

Matthew 6:33  (AMPC)

33 But seek ([a]aim at and strive after) first of all His kingdom and His righteousness ([b]His way of doing and being right), and then all these things [c]taken together will be given you besides.

So what does the pursuit of righteousness look like in real life?

 

God was dealing w/me about rebellion in my life and told “sickness and poverty in my life is rebellion to the life he planned for me”

 

Sickness and poverty is a violation of what is established as right order in the kingdom of Heaven. This is why all things are added when You pursue The kingdom and its righteousness. 

 

It’s not about how good I am, but how teachable I am. How willing I am to exchange my way for heavens way?

 

 

Matthew 21:44(AMPC)

44 [a]And whoever falls on this Stone will be broken to pieces, but he on whom It falls will be crushed to powder [and It will[b]winnow him, [c]scattering him like dust].

 

 

Revival follows those seeking God's right way of doing


Matthew 5:48(NIV)

Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.

 

Most of the Church today have been deceived in pursuing a religious experience that would change their lives. 

However, in the Kingdom changing ones life to line up to the kingdoms righteousness is the only way that one can actually open up Heaven in our life.

 

Matthew 5:6(AMPC)

Blessed and fortunate andhappy and [a]spiritually prosperous (in that state in which the born-again child of God [b]enjoys His favor and salvation) are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness (uprightness and right standing with God), for they shall be [c]completely satisfied!
