How to be in Right Standing with God

January 15, 2022

One of the major aims of Paul in his Letter to the Galatians in Turkey, is to show Believers how they can have Right Standing with God through Grace.

This is completely misunderstood by Legalistic Ritualism.

In Galatians Ch 2:18 AMP Paraphrased, “ For if I, or any others who have taught the Law of Moses..”

The problem we have today is that most people have no idea what is the Law of Moses in the first place, because of 60+ years of PC and MET indoctrination.

The majority of Ivory Tower Agnostic Theological Professors conveniently overlook this point.

We asked our fictitious Professor Scrooge why this is the case,”It was easy to convince people that the Law of Moses was no longer necessary in the 60’s and 70’s. This generation was more interested in reading Play-boy magazine to get tips on how to be unfaithful to their wives without them knowing about it. Our Culture decided to reject the Law of Moses because we started telling them about the Utopian State Controlled Paradise in Moscow and Berlin. Of course, it wasn’t until later that we realised that this Soviet System was actually a Totalitarian nightmare, but by then it was out of control.”

Galatians 2:18,AMP Paraphrased, “For if I or any others who have taught that the observance of the Law of Moses is not essential to being Justified by God..”

Notice that Paul did not say that the Law of Moses was not essential, just that is is not essential to being Justified by God. Paul also declares that the Law is our Tutor to bring us to Christ, but not to make us the Righteousness of God in Christ.

The role of the Tutor is to show us our need of Jesus Christ, but not to give us Right Standing with God.

The problem many Believers have with this Revelation of Paul, is that they base their belief in Righteousness on how they feel at the time.

“I know the Scriptures say that I’m the Righteousness of God in Christ by Grace, but I sure don’t feel like it today. I’m definitely not perfect.”

This shows a confusion between Faith and Feelings.

We are the Righteousness of God by Faith in Jesus Christ because of His Gift of Grace, regardless of how we feel about it.

If we were to compare the Gift of Righteousness to a Knighthood, we can see how to proclaim our Righteousness in Christ.

Imagine yourself being Knighted by the Royal Monarch in the UK. You kneel before the Monarch and with a Sword the Monarch pronounces you a Knight and from henceforth you are to be regarded as a Sir followed by your name Eg Sir Francis Drake.

Then on the following day you awake in the morning and tell everyone that you don’t feel like a Sir. Then you call the Monarch’s Palace and request to be Knighted again because you feel the same as before, and you want the Swords passed over you again.

If somebody were to do this they would probably lose their Knighthood, and be regarded as an unstable person.

Yet some Believers today are given the Gift of Righteousness by the ultimate Monarch of the whole universe, Jesus Christ or Lord, yet refuse to Believe it because they are judging whether they are in Right Standing with God based not on Faith, but on how they feel at the time.

Would you like to be in Right Standing with God?
