Psalms 105:44-45 “he gave them the lands of the nations, and they fell heir to what others had toiled for—
that they might keep his precepts and observe his laws. Praise the Lord.”
Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, King David and all the righteous ones toiled hard for the coming of Christ. They could have never been considered righteous, if they did not know the ways of God. The word flowed in them. But how comes they understood so well the ways of God, because they grew up knowing the commands of God and living according to it.
We can identify ourselves today as Christians because we have given up our old ways of life and decided to start living by Faith. The savior came only through a righteous generation who knew by revelation that Christ was to come, so in their perseverance, they kept themselves holy in order that Christ may be revealed. They were not greedy, they knew Christ will come in a time no one knew except the father, so they decided to pass this knowledge of righteousness to other generations who lived holy lives, waiting for our Lord and Savior Yahushua.
Christ finally came into this world, lived and thought us fully how the Father in heaven wants us to live. He was rejected by people of the world, who had created their own righteousness. He was crucified on the cross for not committing a crime, crucified because he thought righteousness of God. A Lamb that was blemish was lead to be slain, they never knew what they were doing, they never knew that they were sinners bringing a blemish Lamb to be slain for the forgiveness of their sins and our sins. It is only after his death that some of them believed and were saved. If Judas Iscariot did not hang himself up before the death of Yahushua Mashiach, he would have been saved. Christ said before he died in Luke 23:34 “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.” After his death, three days later he rose from the death by the power of the Holy Spirit. All who believe this in their hearts and change from their evil ways, the Father gives them freely the Holy Spirit.
Christ is still to come again, he never said he will not come back. Before he left the disciples, he gave them this word, to preach the gospel to the ends of the world (Mark 16:15), then the end will come. But you have been given the Holy Spirit because of your believe, because you have repented. Repenting makes you a heir to what you did not toil for. We repent to keep his precepts and observe his laws.
Repentance is death to sin and then keeping to his precepts and observing his laws is living in Christ. Only when you live in Christ that you have revelation. This revelation of him to come is what will keep you in the race. With revelation we have that zeal to preach the gospel. We should all read the word diligently for your feature lies in the word.
Teach me your ways father and help me to know your precepts so that i may keep your commands, in the name of Yahushua Amen!!
