Righteousness Only Comes by God

Righteousness Only Comes by God

Galatians 2:21 (KJB)   I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain.

Paul is trying to clear lingering confusion about mixing law and grace.  Attempting to blend the two together only serves to frustrate the grace of God.  That is precisely why God sent His Only Son to die on Calvary.  His unmerited favor can affect man with His righteousness for the keeping ...

Sinless Perfection

Numbers 23:19 (KJB)   God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?

And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? (2 Corinthians 6:15 KJV)

What spiritual harmony would God have with satan? God and satan are at extreme odds.  They exist at opposite ends of the spiritual spectrum having nothing in common or separated as far apart is darkness is to light.

Under the Influence of God

Do not drink wine nor strong drink, thou, nor thy sons with thee, when ye go into the tabernacle of the congregation, lest ye die: it shall be a statute for ever throughout your generations: And that ye may put difference between holy and unholy, and between unclean and clean; And that ye may teach the children of Israel all the statutes which the LORD hath spoken unto them by the hand of Moses. ...

God’s Eyes Cannot Look Upon Evil and Wickedness

Thou art of purer eyes than to behold evil, and canst not look on iniquity: wherefore lookest thou upon them that deal treacherously, and holdest thy tongue when the wicked devoureth the man that is more righteous than he? (Habakkuk 1:13 KJV)

God is perfect and pure.  His eyes are unadulterated.  He is not able to look upon evil.  God is entirely separated from evil and darkness found flourishing in this world.  ...
