Reader, or Saint.

A.). Made Righteous" = "In Christ".

How would you teach that to your SS class or to your mother?

1.) You'd explain to them that ........ '""" the Spirit is THE... born again..""""

In other words, when Jesus said....>"You must be born again"....>He was not talking about your legs and arms and ears.
As that is your BODY, and your body is "DEAD because of SIN", and is going to the grave.
Your body is going to be put in a box, then in a hole in the ground, or they are going to cremate your body.
Have you decided which, yet?
Well, here is some good news....... = JESUS is about to come and get the born again. = you may well miss your funeral.


So, what is left of you, that is not your body?, ...as that is what He's talking about that can receive a new BIRTH.

That can't be your mind, as your mind is not born.. Its developed, along with your IQ and your Character and your Honestly, and your obsessions.

That leaves just one......

Your SPIRIT, = as that is the Real you, Reader.
The "Son/Daugher" of God, is the Born again Spirit.
Your Body only contains your Spirit, and when your body dies, your spirit does not. It continues. And its going to so somewhere., and "the GRAVE" is not the final answer.

Here is the final answer..

Hell or Heaven.
Heaven or Hell.

You get to choose one of those, by being born again or by not being born again.

See..........Your body dies, and your spirit is released, and if you are not BORN AGAIN SPIRITUALLY, you will never go to Heaven.
There is NO 2nd Chance to be born again in Hell, and Hell is not a myth.
It was created for the Devil and his angels before ADAM was on this earth.
If you are not born again, then you are this.....>Jesus said....>"you are of YOUR Father, THE DEVIL".
See that? And if that is you, you will be found with your father after you die, and the Born again will be found with THEIR Heavenly Father.
That is going to happen, and you have to decide before you die, where you are going to end up.
Christ is the only WAY to heaven, so if you are trying to work your way there, then turn around, as you are going the wrong WAY.

Understand?


2.)
So, do you see that the real you, that God has "reborn", is your Spirit. ?
And your born again Spirit, is 'In Christ".... "made righteous".....>"one with God"........ forever.
Your born again Spirit exists in Spiritual Union with God, and there is no sin found there, reader.

Now.....Where are your sins?
Well, Jesus said...that you will "die in them" if you are never born again.
That means you dont die in them, if you are born again,........ because Jesus has died for them already, 2000 yrs ago, on the Cross.

So, there goes your sin.

3.) Now, when you read 2 Corinthians 5:19, that says that God does not charge any sin to you, its because your Spirit is the real you, and its "One with God"........ and Jesus "became sin" for you 2000 yrs ago, so there goes your sin.
Its gone. Christ took all of it upon Himself on the Cross, died, and When He rose from the Dead, your sin didn't.

"God hath made Jesus to BE SIN FOR US". "Jesus is the ONE TIME........ETERNAL Sacrifice for SIN"..

So......In all this, you find your Salvation, and your Eternal Life, and your Sanctification.

Welcome To : Salvation.

Its a "Gift".

When we are born again, we are re-joined to God..........and this is "Spiritual union" ... found as "in Christ"... "one with God".

Holiness, is Righteousness, and that is not what you do, that is who you are "in Christ", or you aren't.
All people are unrighteous, until they are born again.
God only is : Righteousness.
So, to be joined to God, Spiritually, as born again, is to be "made righteous".

To become righteous, is to become apart from sin, or "made free from sin", because "God hath made JESUS to BE SIN...for us".
We can think of it as......... Darkness is the absence of Light. Cold is the absence of Heat. Sin is the absence of Righteousness.. A sinner is a state of being separated from God's Righteousness., as "all have sinned"...

God on the Cross as Jesus The Christ, has made it possible through His sacrifice for ALL who will believe to be eternally forgiven their sin and given the "new Birth", in the Spirit, that produces the believer as a "New Creation in Christ'.. "The Temple of the Holy Spirit".

To be apart from God, is to be separated from God's righteousness. Its to be separated from God's LIFE< which is "eternal life'.
When we are born again, we are reconnected to God, and His LIfe, becomes our Eternal Life.
See that?


When we get this Eternal Life as "the Gift of Salvation"..., its because God has dealt with all our sin on/by the Cross of Christ, ....and so that solves our SIN issue, and then, once our sin is forever resolved, = God gives us the "gift of Righteousness" which solves our Righteousness problem.
A.) This is "the GIFT of SALVATION".
