What is His Righteousness, self-RIGHTEOUSNESS, the Witness of Yahusha?
Are you wearing the righteous garment?
Hush! in the presence of the Master YaHuWaH. For the day of YaHuWaH is near, for YaHuWaH has prepared a slaughter, He has set apart His invited ones. “And it shall be, in the day of the slaughter of YaHuWaH, that I shall punish the rulers and the sons of the sovereign, AND ALL SUCH AS ARE CLAD IN FOREIGN GARMENTS. “And I shall punish on that day all who leap over the threshold, who fill their masters’ houses with violence and deceit. Tsephanyah (Zephaniah) 1:7-9
“And those servants went out into the street corners and gathered all whom they found, both wicked and good. And the wedding hall was filled with guests. And when the sovereign came in to view the guests, he saw there a man who had not put on a wedding garment,” and he said to him, ‘Friend, how did you come in here not having a wedding garment?’ And he was speechless. “Then the sovereign said to the servants, ‘Bind him hand and foot, take him away, and throw him out into the outer darkness – there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’ “For many are called, but few are chosen.” Mattithyahu (Matthew) 22:10-14
Is it not RIGHT for me to do what I wish with my own? Or IS YOUR EYE EVIL because I am good?’ “Thus the last shall be first, and the first last. For many are called, but FEW CHOSEN.”
Mattithyahu (Matthew) 20:15-16
And a voice came from the throne, saying, “Praise our Elohim, all you His servants and those who fear Him, both small and great!” And I heard as the voice of a great crowd, as the sound of many waters and as the sound of mighty thunders, saying, “HalleluYah, for YaHuWaH El Shaddai reigns! “Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him praise, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife prepared herself.” And TO HER it was GIVEN TO BE DRESSED in fine linen, clean and bright, for the fine linen is the righteousness of the set-apart ones. And he said to me, “Write, ‘Blessed are those who have been called to the marriage supper of the Lamb!’ ” And he said to me, “These are the true words of Elohim.” And I fell at his feet to worship him, but he said to me, “See, do not do it ! I am your fellow servant, and of your brothers who possess the witness of Yahusha. Worship Elohim! For the witness of Yahusha is the spirit of prophecy.” And I saw the heaven opened, and there was a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Trustworthy and True, AND IN RIGHTEOUSNESS HE JUDGES AND FIGHTS. And His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns, having a Name that had been written, which no one had perceived except Himself – and having been dressed in a robe dipped in blood – and His Name is called: The Word of YaHuWaH. And the armies in the heaven, dressed in fine linen, white and clean, followed Him on white horses. And out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should smite the nations. And He shall shepherd them with a rod of iron. And He treads the wine press of the fierceness and wrath of El Shaddai. And on His robe and on His thigh He has a name written: SOVEREIGN OF SOVEREIGNS AND MASTER OF MASTERS. And I saw one messenger standing in the sun, and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the birds that fly in mid-heaven, “Come and gather together for the supper of the great Elohim, to eat the flesh of sovereigns, and the flesh of commanders, and the flesh of strong ones, and the flesh of horses and of those who sit on them, and the flesh of all people, free and slave, both small and great.” And I saw the beast, and the sovereigns of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to fight Him who sat on the horse and His army. And the beast was seized, and with him the false prophet who worked signs in his presence, by which he led astray those who received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image. The two were thrown alive into the lake of fire burning with sulphur. And the rest were killed with the sword which came from the mouth of Him who sat on the horse, and all the birds were filled with their flesh. Ḥazon (Revelation) 19:5-21
IN RIGHTEOUSNESS HE JUDGES AND FIGHTS?
“And it shall be, when all these words come upon you, the blessing and the curse which I have set before you, and you shall bring them back to your heart among all the nations where YaHuWaH your Elohim drives you, and shall turn back to YaHuWaH your Elohim and obey His voice, according to all that I command you today, with all your heart and with all your being, you and your children, then YaHuWaH your Elohim shall turn back your captivity, and shall have compassion on you, and He shall turn back and gather you from all the peoples where YaHuWaH your Elohim has scattered you. “If any of you are driven out to the farthest parts under the heavens, from there YaHuWaH your Elohim does gather you, and from there He does take you. “And YaHuWaH your Elohim shall bring you to the land which your fathers possessed, and you shall possess it. And He shall do good to you, and increase you more than your fathers. “And YaHuWaH your Elohim shall circumcise your heart and the heart of your seed, to love YaHuWaH your Elohim with all your heart and with all your being, so that you might live, and YaHuWaH your Elohim shall put all these curses on your enemies and on those who hate you, who persecuted you. “And you shall turn back and obey the voice of YaHuWaH and do all His commands which I command you today. “And YaHuWaH your Elohim shall make you have excess in all the work of your hand, in the fruit of your body, and in the fruit of your livestock, and in the fruit of your ground for good. For YaHuWaH turns back to rejoice over you for good as He rejoiced over your fathers, if you obey the voice of YaHuWaH your Elohim, to guard His commands and His laws which are written in this Book of the Torah, if you turn back to YaHuWaH your Elohim with all your heart and with all your being. “For this command which I am commanding you today, it is not too hard for you, nor is it far off. “It is not in the heavens, to say, ‘Who shall ascend into the heavens for us, and bring it to us, and cause us to hear it, so that we do it?’ Nor is it beyond the sea, to say, ‘Who shall go over the sea for us, and bring it to us, and cause us to hear it, so that we do it?” “For the Word is very near you, in your mouth and in your heart – to do it. See, I have set before you today life and good, and death and evil,” in that I am commanding you today to love YaHuWaH your Elohim, to walk in His ways, and to guard His commands, and His laws, and His right-rulings. And you shall live and increase, and YaHuWaH your Elohim shall bless you in the land which you go to possess. “But if your heart turns away, and you do not obey, and shall be drawn away, and shall bow down to other mighty ones and serve them, “I have declared to you today that you shall certainly perish, you shall not prolong your days in the land which you are passing over the Yardĕn to enter and possess. “I have called the heavens and the earth as witnesses today against you: I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. Therefore you shall choose life, so that you live, both you and your seed, “to love YaHuWaH your Elohim, to obey His voice, and to cling to Him – for He is your life and the length of your days – to dwell in the land which YaHuWaH swore to your fathers, to Aḇraham, to Yitsḥaq, and to Ya‛aqoḇ, to give them. Deḇarim (Deuteronomy) 30:1-20
For not KNOWING the RIGHTEOUSNESS OF ELOHIM, and seeking to establish their own righteousness, THEY DID NOT SUBJECT THEMSELVES TO THE righteousness of Elohim. For MESSIAH IS the GOAL OF THE ‘TORAH unto righteousness’ TO EVERYONE WHO BELIEVES. For Mosheh writes about the righteousness which is of the Torah, “The man who does these shall live by them.” But the righteousness of belief speaks in this way, (HEAR AND OBEY)“Do not say in your heart, ‘Who shall ascend into the heavens?’ ” – that is, to bring Messiah down; or, ” ‘Who shall descend into the abyss?’ ” – that is, to bring Messiah up from the dead. But what does it say? “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart” – that is, the word of belief which we are proclaiming: That IF you confess with your mouth the Master Yahusha and believe in your heart that Elohim has raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and one confesses with the mouth, and so is saved. Because the Scripture says, “Whoever puts his trust in Him shall not be put to shame.”
Romiyim (Romans) 10:3-11
Therefore thus said the Master YaHuWaH, “See, I am laying in Tsiyon a stone for a foundation, a tried stone, a precious corner-stone, a settled foundation. He who trusts shall not hasten away. And I shall make right-ruling the measuring line, and righteousness the plummet. And the hail shall sweep away the refuge of lying, and the waters overflow the hiding place. And your covenant with death shall be annulled, and your vision with She’ol not stand. When an overflowing scourge passes through, then you shall be trampled down by it. Give ear and hear my voice, listen and hear my Word. For He instructs him for right-ruling, his Elohim teaches him. Yeshayahu (Isaiah) 28:16-18, 23, 26
Because there is no distinction between Yehuḏi and Greek, for the same Master of all is rich to all those calling upon Him. For “everyone who calls on the Name of YaHuWaH shall be saved.” Romiyim (Romans) 10:12-13
And you children of Tsiyon, be glad and rejoice in YaHuWaH your Elohim, for He shall give you the Teacher of Righteousness,(a teacher of Torah, ELOHIM’S RIGHTEOUSNESS!!!) and cause the rain to come down for you, the former rain and the latter rain, as before. And the threshing-floors shall be filled with grain, and the vats shall overflow with new wine and oil. “Then I shall repay you the years that the swarming locust has eaten, the crawling locust, and the consuming locust, and the gnawing locust, My great army which I sent among you. “Then you shall eat – eat and be satisfied – and shall praise the Name of YaHuWaH your Elohim, who has done with you so wondrously. And My people shall never be put to shame. “And you shall know that I am in the midst of Yisra’El, and that I am YaHuWaH your Elohim and there is no one else. And My people shall never be put to shame. “And after this it shall be that I pour out My Spirit on all flesh. And your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men dream dreams, your young men see visions. “And also on the male servants and on the female servants I shall pour out My Spirit in those days. “And I shall give signs in the heavens and upon the earth: blood and fire and columns of smoke, the sun is turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the coming of the great and awesome day of YaHuWaH. “And it shall be that everyone who calls on the Name of YaHuWaH shall be delivered. For on Mount Tsiyon and in Yerushalayim there shall be an escape as יהוה has said, and among the survivors whom יהוה calls. Yo’ĕl (Joel) 2:23-32
HE SENT THE TEACHER OF RIGHTEOUSNESS (Torah) TO TURN OUR HEARTS BACK TO YAHUWAH!
“And it shall be, if you diligently obey the voice of YaHuWaH your Elohim, to guard to do all His commands which I command you today, that YaHuWaH your Elohim shall set you high above all nations of the earth. “And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you, if you obey the voice of YaHuWaH your Elohim: “Blessed are you in the city, and blessed are you in the field. “Blessed is the fruit of your body, and the fruit of your ground and the fruit of your livestock – the increase of your cattle and the offspring of your flocks. “Blessed is your basket and your kneading bowl. “Blessed are you when you come in, and blessed are you when you go out. “YaHuWaH causes your enemies who rise against you to be smitten before your face – they come out against you one way and flee before you seven ways. “YaHuWaH commands the blessing on you in your storehouses and in all to which you set your hand, and shall bless you in the land which YaHuWaH your Elohim is giving you. “YaHuWaH does establish you as a set-apart people to Himself, as He has sworn to you, if you guard the commands of YaHuWaH your Elohim and walk in His ways. “And all peoples of the earth shall see that the Name of YaHuWaH is called upon you, and they shall be afraid of you. “And YaHuWaH shall make you to have plenty of what is good, in the fruit of your body, in the fruit of your livestock, and in the fruit of your ground, in the land of which YaHuWaH swore to your fathers to give you. “YaHuWaH opens to you His good treasure, the heavens, to give the rain to your land in its season, and to bless all the work of your hand. And you shall lend to many nations, but you do not borrow. “And YaHuWaH shall make you the head and not the tail. And you shall be only on top, and not be beneath, if you obey the commands of YaHuWaH your Elohim, which I command you today, to guard and do. “And do not turn aside from any of the Words which I am commanding you today, right or left, to go after other mighty ones to serve them. And it shall be, if you do not obey the voice of YaHuWaH your Elohim, to guard to do all His commands and His laws which I command you today, that all these curses shall come upon you and overtake you.” Deḇarim (Deuteronomy) 28:1-15
HOW THEN SHALL THEY CALL ON HIM IN WHOM THEY HAVE NOT BELIEVED? AND how shall they believe in Him of WHOM THEY HAVE NOT HEARD? And how shall they hear without one proclaiming? And how shall they proclaim if they are not sent? As it has been written, “How pleasant are the feet of those who bring the Good News of peace, who bring the Good News of the good!” Romiyim (Romans) 10:14-15
Awake, awake! Put on your strength, O Tsiyon, put on your garments of splendour, O Yerushalayim, the set-apart city! For no more do the uncircumcised and the unclean come into you. Shake yourself from the dust, arise, and sit down, O Yerushalayim. Loose yourself from the bonds of your neck, O captive daughter of Tsiyon! For thus said the Master YaHuWaH, “At first My people went down into Mitsrayim to sojourn there, and Ashshur oppressed them without cause. “And now, what have I here,” declares YaHuWaH, “that My people are taken away for naught? Those who rule over them make them wail,” declares YaHuWaH, “and My Name is despised all day continually. “Therefore My people shall know My Name, in that day, for I am the One who is speaking. See, it is I.” How pleasant upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news, who proclaims peace, who brings good news, who proclaims deliverance, who says to Tsiyon, “Your Elohim reigns!” The voice of your watchmen! They shall lift up their voices, together they shout for joy, because eye to eye they see the return of YaHuWaH to Tsiyon. Break forth into joy, sing together, you waste places of Yerushalayim! For YaHuWaH shall comfort His people, He shall redeem Yerushalayim. YaHuWaH shall lay bare His set-apart arm in the eyes of all the nations. And all the ends of the earth shall see the deliverance of our Elohim. Turn aside! Turn aside! Come out from there, touch not the unclean. Come out of her midst, be clean, you who bear the vessels of YaHuWaH. For you shall not come out in haste, nor go in flight. For YaHuWaH is going before you, and the Elohim of Yisra’El is your rear guard. See, My Servant shall work wisely, He shall be exalted and lifted up and very high. As many were astonished at You – so the disfigurement beyond any man’s and His form beyond the sons of men – He shall likewise startle many nations. Sovereigns shut their mouths at Him, for what had not been recounted to them they shall see, and what they had not heard they shall understand. Yeshayahu (Isaiah) 52:1-2, 4-15
However, not all obeyed the Good News. For Yeshayahu says, “YaHuWaH, who has believed our report?” So then belief comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of Elohim. But I ask, Did they not hear? Yes indeed, “Their voice went out to all the earth, and their words to the ends of the world.” Romiyim (Romans) 10:16-18
What is this GOOD NEWS that so many do not believe, what Word and Witness? Remember from Revelation “those who have the witness of Yahusha”!
Their line has gone out through all the earth, And their words to the end of the world. In them He set up a tent for the sun, And it is like a bridegroom coming out of his room, It rejoices like a strong man to run the path. Its rising is from one end of the heavens, And its circuit to the other end; And naught is hidden from its heat. The Torah of YaHuWaH is perfect, bringing back the being; The witness of YaHuWaH is trustworthy, making wise the simple; The orders of YaHuWaH are straight, rejoicing the heart; The command of YaHuWaH is clear, enlightening the eyes; The fear of YaHuWaH is clean, standing forever; The right-rulings of YaHuWaH are true, THEY ARE RIGHTEOUS ALTOGETHER, More desirable than gold, Than much fine gold; And sweeter than honey and the honeycomb. Also, Your servant is warned by them, In guarding them there is great reward. Who discerns mistakes? Declare me innocent from those that are secret, Also keep Your servant back from presumptuous ones, Do not let them rule over me. Then shall I be perfect, and innocent of great transgression. Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart Be pleasing before You, O YaHuWaH, my rock and my redeemer. Tehillim (Psalms) 19:4-14
But I ask, Did Yisra’El not know? First Mosheh says, “I shall provoke you to jealousy by those who are not a nation, I shall enrage you by an unwise nation.”
Romiyim (Romans) 10:19
“Give ear, O heavens, and let me speak; And hear, O earth, The words of my mouth. “Let my instruction fall as rain, My speech drop down as dew, As fine rain on the tender plants, And as showers on the grass. “For I proclaim the Name of YaHuWaH, Ascribe greatness to our Elohim. “The Rock! His work is perfect, For all His ways are right-ruling, An El of truth and without unrighteousness, Righteous and straight is He. “A twisted and crooked generation has corrupted itself, Their blemish, they are not His children. “Do you do this to YaHuWaH, O foolish and unwise people? Is He not your Father, who BOUGHT you, Who CREATED you and ESTABLISHED you? Remember the days of old, Consider the years of many generations. Ask your father and let him show you, Your elders, and let them say to you.” “When the Most High gave the nations their inheritance When He separated the sons of Aḏam, He set the boundaries of the peoples According to the number of the children of Yisra’El. “For the portion of YaHuWaH is His people, Ya‛aqoḇ His allotted inheritance. He found him in a wilderness, And in a wasted, howling desert. He encompassed him, He made him understand, He watched over him as the apple of His eye.
Deḇarim (Deuteronomy) 32:1-10
And Yeshayahu boldly says, “I was found by those not seeking Me, I was made manifest to those not asking for Me.” Romiyim (Romans) 10:20
And to Yisra’El He says, “All day long I have stretched out My hands to a disobedient and back-talking people.” Romiyim (Romans) 10:21
“I have let Myself be inquired of, not by those who asked; I was found, not by those who sought Me. I said, ‘Here I am, here I am,’ to a nation not calling on My Name. “I have held out My hands all day long to a stubborn people, who walk in a way that is not good, after their own thoughts; the people who provoke Me continually to My face, who slaughter in gardens, and burn incense on slaughter-places of brick; who sit among the burial-sites, and spend the night in secret places, who eat flesh of pigs, and the broth of unclean meat is in their pots, who say, ‘Keep to yourself, do not come near me, for I am set-apart to you!’ These are smoke in My nostrils, a fire that burns all day. “See, it is written before Me: I am not silent, but shall repay, and I shall repay into their bosom, your crookednesses and the crookednesses of your fathers together,” said YaHuWaH, “who burned incense on the mountains and reproached Me on the hills. And I shall measure their former work into their bosom.” Thus said YaHuWaH, “As the new wine is found in the cluster, and one shall say, ‘Do not destroy it, for there is blessing in it,’ so I do for My servants’ sake, not to destroy them all. “And I shall bring forth a seed from Ya‛aqoḇ, and from Yehuḏah an heir of My mountains. And My chosen ones shall inherit it, and My servants dwell there. “And Sharon shall be a fold of flocks, and the Valley of Aḵor a place for herds to lie down, for My people who have sought Me. “But you are those who forsake YaHuWaH, who forget My set-apart mountain, who prepare a table for Gad, and who fill a drink offering for Meni. “And I shall allot you to the sword, and let you all bow down to the slaughter, because I called and you did not answer, I spoke and you did not hear, and you did evil before My eyes and chose that in which I did not delight.” Yeshayahu (Isaiah) 65:1-12
