"Blessed are they whose lawless deeds have been forgiven, and whose sins have been covered; (Rom 4:7)
Blessed is the man to whom the Lord shall by no means impute sin." (Rom 4:8)

Romans 4:1-3
(1)  What then shall we say that Abraham our father has found according to the flesh?
(2)  For if Abraham was justified by works, he has something to boast about, but not before God.
(3)  For what does the Scripture say? "Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness."

Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith.

Also, verse 30:

30  since there is one God who will justify the circumcision by faith, and the uncircumcised through faith.

What did paul mean by that?

"So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for Him shall He appear the second time without sin unto salvation."

I love the way the King James Version reads here in Hebrews 9:28. But is it accurate?

Here's a few definitions of the Greek word apekdechomai:

"To expect, to look for, to wait for with patience and confident expectancy."

What the text is saying, is that those who are looking for Him won't miss His return; because the person who misses His return, and is not ready for it, will suffer the same fate as the 5 virgins in Matthew 25, which also were not prepared.

Are you looking for His return?

"Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man." (Luke 21:36)

Gaining entrance into the Kingdom of God requires a vigilant perseverance, and abiding in Christ. (Luke 13:24--STRIVE to enter into the narrow gate.)

Notice please this fascinating coincidence (if you believe in them--I don't)
1Kings 17:1 "And Elijah the Tishbite, of the inhabitants of Gilead, said to Ahab, "As the LORD God of Israel lives, before whom I stand, there shall not be dew nor rain these years, except at my word."

Also, Revelation 11:6

(6)  These have power to shut heaven, so that no rain falls in the days of their prophecy; and they have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to strike the earth with all plagues, as often as they desire.
(7)  When they finish their testimony, the beast that ascends out of the bottomless pit will make war against them, overcome them, and kill them.

Also, James 5:17

(17)  Elijah was a man with a nature like ours, and he prayed earnestly that it would not rain; and it did not rain on the land for three years and six months.

Interesting, isn't it? The thing to remember the most, is that once these 2 men appear, it will NOT rain on the earth for 3 1/2 years!

And I also believe that Elijah is going to be one of these mysterious "witnesses"

"Now David was greatly distressed, for the people spoke of stoning him, because the soul of all the people was grieved, every man for his sons and his daughters. But David strengthened himself in the LORD his God."  (1Sam 30:6)

It's written of David, that he "encouraged himself in the Lord his God."

How do we do that? Part 2 of 3.

God: Just, and the Justifier.

Today we look at this word propitiation, and its underlying Greek word, Hilasterion.

Today we look at God, who is both "Just," and the "Justifier" of those who put their faith in Jesus Christ. It's a great word picture--"just" being the adjective, describing the attribute, and "justifier" being the action verb.

"...Whom God set forth as a propitiation through faith in His blood, for a demonstration of His righteousness through the passing over of the sins having previously committed, in the forbearance of God, (Rom 3:25)
for a demonstration of His righteousness in the present time, that He might be just and the justifier of he who has faith in Jesus. (Rom 3:26)

"Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference."

So, the question is, "What saves us, His faith...or ours??"
