Jesus also, that he might sanctify the people with his own blood, suffered outside the gate. Therefore, let us go forth to him outside the camp, bearing his reproach. For we have no continuing city here, but we seek one to come.

Last week in the meeting, my spirit just kept feeling so deep inside the words “love righteousness” - you talked about it too, and it blessed me. It hit my spirit as the answer to being happy, and overcoming in every situation. What I was feeling is that if we RUN to righteousness because we love it from the inside out, there is victory. There is no “crack” in any door when we love it. Loving righteousness therefore, is a great weapon. I have been thinking about that over the past few days, AND I have been putting it into practice on occasion. And it has felt so good.
Last night, I was reading before bed, and just happened on these verses: (Heb. 1:8-9) “But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a scepter of righteousness is the scepter of thy kingdom. Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.”
It jumped off the page at me! It’s in the BIBLE! Do we want to be filled with gladness? Love righteousness, and hate evil. From the heart. Run to DO righteousness and the “oil” will hit you right between the eyes.
I love it when the bible bears witness to what the Spirit has told us and it is understood even better!!
I think you were too busy loving righteousness last week in the meeting to hear me when I quoted that verse from Hebrews about loving righteousness. Way to go! I love it when saints miss the point I’m making because they already got it!
