January 30: Righteousness

The New Covenant explains why Yeshua’s sacrifice put an “end” to the Law of Moses for attaining righteousness.

Romans 3:25-26

Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God;

To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Yeshua.

Yeshua’s sacrifice appeased God’s wrath against sin. In modern terms, it was an act of conciliation that enabled God’s holiness and justice to be maintained. His sacrifice paid the penalty for our sins.   Actually the Greek word, ἱλαστήριον [hē-lä-stā’-rē-on] is used in the LXX for the cover of the Ark of the Covenant.

PRAY ISRAEL WILL ACCEPT GOD’S RIGHTEOUSNESS THROUGH FAITH IN THE MESSIAH.
