I have just been convicted by the Holy Spirit that I am as righteous as Jesus Christ!

From Frank Friedman's teaching today. Transformation by receiving Life from the Father.

2 Corinthians 5

"No atonement in the New Covenant Economy. Jesus did not cover our sins. He took them away.

It is only in the receiving of Christ that changes a man.

Jesus died because God reached out to sinful man to reconcile man.

Jesus died for our sins so that we might be made the righteousness of Christ in God. It is all about relationship, intimacy and acceptance by God and by the way we get to go to Heaven. Heaven was made to be a present day reality.

Our message to the world is not that if you mess up you will pay. He has already paid. Our message is to tell what has already be done.

The word (logos) of reconciliation. We have been reconciled! 50 saints to 3 sinners mentioned in the New Testament. Saint means holy one of God.

This is the Good News....something that has been done, not something you have to do. We need to receive what has been done. This is our message - to tell what has been done. We are the ambassadors of God. Freedom! We speak with all authority from God, when we share the Gospel. And He through us leads them to freedom. No shame, no guilt, only freedom.

In Christ, you are the righteousness of God. "

Do you believe?
