Salvation; Righteousness, Justification and Faith of Obedience by the Letter and the Spirit of the Word.

Salvation; Righteousness, Justification and Faith of Obedience by the Letter and the Spirit of the Word.
 
Brothers and Sisters, how do we get from sinner to righteousness to righteous justification? From sinner to saint, Born Again? What it takes is the Letter of the Word, the Spirit of the Word through Faith, the Grace of God and a willing desire to want to follow God’s Will, through the Holy Spirit of Christ Jesus.
 
It starts with our desire to seek God through Christ, His Living Word. Desiring to believe in God through Christ. Desiring to walk in Christ example and allow Faith to grow in the heart and mind of our soul and allow our spirit grow into the Holy Spirit.
 
Desiring to gain the knowledge and understanding of His Word and follow what God says is right and wrong in our daily lives, start walking into righteousness, living and believing completely in the Word of God and His promises. Faith is Born, and the Word transforms a desire of the flesh to a spiritual desire of the soul. It transforms from the desire of the flesh following laws to receive reward. To the spiritual desire of the soul to spiritually apply those laws out of a willing desire to walk in Christ example.
 
This transforms us from being righteous by the law, to being justified as righteous by God through Grace and Faith by the blood of Christ.
 
Now we need both the Letter and the Spirit of the Word to reach salvation. The Letter to teach us righteousness and the Spirit to teach us how to live righteously by Faith and Obedience.
 
Romans 3:19-26 (KJV) 19 Now we know that what things so ever the law said, it said to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God. 20 Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin.
21 But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets; 22 Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference: 23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
24 Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: 25 Whom God has set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God; 26 To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.
 
James 2:14-26 (KJV) 14 What does it profit, my brethren, though a man say he has faith, and have not works? can faith save him? 15 If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food, 16 And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be you warmed and filled; notwithstanding you give them not those things which are needful to the body; what does it profit? 17 Even so faith, if it has not works, is dead, being alone. 18 Yes, a man may say, Thou have faith, and I have works: show me your faith without your works, and I will show you my faith by my works. 19 You believe that there is one God; you does well: the devils also believe, and tremble. 20 But will you know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead? 21 Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar? 22 See you how faith worked with his works, and by works was faith made perfect? 23 And the scripture was fulfilled which said, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God. 24 You see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only. 25 Likewise also was not Rahab the harlot justified by works, when she had received the messengers, and had sent them out another way? 26 For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.
 
And so for salvation we become Born Again as it is written;
 
John 3:3, 5-7 (KJV) 3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. 6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. 7 Marvel not that I said unto you, You must be born again.
 
John 4:23-24 (KJV) 23 But the hour comes, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeks such to worship him. 24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
 
1 John 3:9-10 (KJV) 9 Whosoever is born of God does not commit sin; for his seed remained in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. 10 In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever does not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loves not his brother.
 
1 John 5 (KJV) 1 Whosoever believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God: and every one that loves him that begat loves him also that is begotten of him. 2 By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments. 3 For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous. 4 For whatsoever is born of God overcomes the world: and this is the victory that overcomes the world, even our faith. 5 Who is he that overcomes the world, but he that believes that Jesus is the Son of God?
18 We know that whosoever is born of God sinned not; but he that is begotten of God keeps himself, and that wicked one touches him not. 19 And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lies in wickedness. 20 And we know that the Son of God is come, and has given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life.
 
1 Peter 1:21-23 (KJV) 21 Who by him do believe in God, that raised him up from the dead, and gave him glory; that your faith and hope might be in God. 22 Seeing you have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that you love one another with a pure heart fervently: 23 Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which lives and abides forever.
