The righteous – 5 benefits of righteous living


5 benefits of righteous living

God doesn’t speak to impress people; He speaks to expand people. Things that will impress you will not expand you; things that will expand you will not impress you.

“All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: [17] That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.” – 2.Tim.3:16-17

5 Benefits of righteousness

1). Boldness – Boldness is the secret behind the miraculous at work in the hands of the apostles. The keyword here is confidence it requires confidence to get God to confirm His word.

“Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marveled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus.” – Acts.4:13
“And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the word of God with boldness.” – Acts.4:31

While sins inflict fear; righteousness instils boldness. Many – though born-again Christians – are still ruled with fear as a result of sin.

Adam sinned and the first statement He made was “I am afraid.” Sin ruptured the destiny of men. It broke the link between God and men.

“The wicked flee when no man pursueth: but the righteous are bold as a lion.” – Prov.28:1

2). Flourished business – Righteousness is the gateway to a flourished business. The reason your business is suffering ups and downs is unrighteousness. Have you started a business and no one is patronizing it? Check the level of your righteousness.

“The righteous shall flourish like the palm tree: he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon. [13] Those that be planted in the house of the Lord shall flourish in the courts of our God. [14] They shall still bring forth fruit in old age; they shall be fat and flourishing;” PSM.92:12-14

The bible is a solution book. It offers multi-purpose solutions to all problems of life. You can use it to turn the shape of your business by subscribing to the demands of righteousness.

The righteous shall grow like a palm tree

“Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. [2] But his delight is in the law of the Lord, and in his law doth he meditates day and night. [3] And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither, and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.” – PSM.1:1-3

3). Speed – righteousness enhances the speed in all realms of life while sin fosters slow motion. Many are delayed in life because of an unrighteous lifestyle.

“But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary, and they shall walk, and not faint.” – Is.40:31

4). Envious destiny – We are not an entity of pity; we are an entity of envy. Every authentic believer has an envious destiny in Christ. It’s my prayer, tonight marks an end to every issue of shame in your life. What makes people pity you comes to an end today. As of today, people will no longer ask you where is your God? God will show up on your behalf.

“For he had possession of flocks, and possession of herds and great store of servants: and the Philistines envied him.” – Gen.26:14

Every issue of mockery will turn into an issue of envy. All those who mocked you serving God in righteousness will join you to serve God.

Before I drop the last point, the spirit of God tells me to show you forces behind unrighteousness.

Association

Your friend can either make you or break you. Friendship is not by force, is by choice. Watch out for negative friends that cause bad influences. Those who walk with fools are programmed for destruction.

“Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners.” – 1.Cor.15:33
“He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed.” – Prov.13:20

Ignorance

Many are victims of ignorance more than anything else. Knowledge is the key to dominion.

“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.” – Hosea.4:6

That is why Jesus Christ clamoured for knowledge during His earthly ministry. He rebuked the Lawyers for taking the key of knowledge.

“Woe unto you, lawyers! for ye have taken away the key of knowledge: ye entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering in ye hindered.” – Lk.11:52

Anything that you don’t understand will be abused. Knowledge is priceless, nothing can be compared to it. You can’t be lighted and be molested. Get knowledge in all thy ‘getting’

Lastly, number 5

Exploits – Listen to this: You don’t need to know any mortal man before you make it in life. You don’t need any political backup – you only need to know God.

“And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries: but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.” – Dan.11:32

Exploits can be defined as what eyes hath not seen nor ear heard before. 1 Cor. 2:9. All genuine righteous children of God are public figures.

“And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars forever and ever.” – Dan.12:32

It’s my prayer. By the light of this word, you will be numbered among the world’s high-flyers in the mighty name of Jesus.

God’s Covenant Of Fruitfulness


God Covenant Of Fruitfulness

Dictionary.com defines fruitfulness as:
(1). Producing good results; beneficial; profitable.
(2). Producing abundant growth, as of fruit: fruitful soil; fruitful rain. Related words: Abundance, productivity, and productiveness.

COVENANT is an agreement between two or more parties. A COVENANT is a deal bound or sealed with some terms and conditions.

The COVENANT of FRUITFULNESS is an agreement between man and God sealed by the terms dictated by God. These terms are non-negotiable. Our major responsibility is to play our part of the deal in order to enjoy the benefits of the covenant.

Understand that God is a commander, that’s the way He operates.

Thou shalt therefore keep the commandments, and the statutes, and the judgments, which I command thee this day, to do them. [12] Wherefore it shall come to pass, if ye hearken to these judgments, and keep, and do them, that the Lord thy God shall keep unto thee the covenant and the mercy which he sware unto thy fathers: [13] And he will love thee, and bless thee, and multiply thee: he will also bless the fruit of thy womb, and the fruit of thy land, thy corn, and thy wine, and thine oil, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep, in the land which he sware unto thy fathers to give thee. [14] Thou shalt be blessed above all people: there shall not be male or female barren among you, or among your cattle. (Deu.7:11-14)

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF THE COVENANT OF FRUITFULNESS?

  • Supernatural Blessings
  • Supernatural Multiplication
  • The Fruit of the Womb
  • Supernatural Abundance
  • Fruitful/Functioning Business
  • Supernatural Health&Vitality
  • Longevity

All these blessings have their roots in that Deu.7:11-14 that I shared earlier.

Now, How Can I Be Fruitful in All Departments of my Life?

You need to get drunk with some wines before you can experience all round fruitfulness.

What are the wines?

The wine of Love – For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.(1Jn.5:3).

OBEDIENCE is the capital proof of our love for God (See also John. 14:21).

Lions are not the greatest animals. Sheep are the greatest. According to PSM.34:10, the lions can be in hunger. But the sheep will never have to fend for themselves.

But the sad thing is that we are in a generation of arrogant people.
Many believe that they can rely on what they have in their heads and cope with the challenges of lives.

Revelation is superior to education. That does not mean that education is bad. But those who have education will also need revelation in order to live a triumphant life.

All round FRUITFULNESS is a function of delightful obedience to scriptural injunctions. Understand that God is not a Father Christmas or Santa Claus (there is no valuable thing that is for free). There is a responsibility to carry. There is a price to pay.

God is a rewarder of those that diligently seek Him. Mark the word diligently.

Those who called themselves Christians today passively seek God and expect FRUITFULNESS to manifest in their lives. No wonder they are affected by the same devilish intimidations that affect the unbelievers. It’s a pity that there is no clear distinct between the believers and unbelievers.

And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the Lord thy God, to observe and to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the Lord thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth: [2] And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy God. [3] Blessed shalt thou be in the city, and blessed shalt thou be in the field. (Deu.28:1-3)

(2).The Wine of Righteousness – The journey of our FRUITFULNESS begins with Righteousness. Righteousness is the hall mark of a fruitful man. Are you interested in all round FRUITFULNESS? If yes, check the level of your fear for God(Righteousness).

“The righteous shall flourish like the palm tree: he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon.” (Psalm.92:12)

You can’t beat them by joining them. Or else you will remain under them. Stand to be different.

YOUR FRUITFULNESS WILL NOT STAND THE TEST OF TIME WITHOUT DEMARCATION.

CHRISTIANITY WITHOUT DEMARCATION IS A IRRESPONSIBLE OF A CHRISTIAN.
(Also see Job.1-1-3, & Psalm 1)

Daniel purposed in his heart that he will not defiled himself with the portion of the King’s meat(Dan.1:8). No wonder he became great and productive. He served 6 kingdoms. Daniel became relevant in the time of Cyrus, Darius, Nebuchadnezzar, Jehoiakim, Belshazzar of Babylon, and Nabonidus of Babylon

A genuine Godly man and woman can never be grounded in life.

Life is all about the choices we make. Choose to be different!

(3).The wine of Faith – The wine of faith won’t keep you waiting. It gets you into motion. It makes you to test your options. To see what you are really called to do in life ( but so sad that many are doing what they are not called to do).

Faith makes you lay off whatsoever is not your calling. And move on.

In Summary, Fruitfulness means:
(1). Producing good results; beneficial; profitable.
(2). Producing abundant growth, as of fruit: fruitful soil; fruitful rain. Related words: Abundance, productivity, and productiveness.

For you to be fruitful you must be intoxicated with the wines of: Love, Righteousness and Faith.
