God's work in man, repentance
and forgiveness of sins
1. Man is in need
of safety, the soul will not find peace until he finds the right flock in which
Jesus walks in his/her own , and from there sins can be forgiven by the
power of the Holy Spirit.
2. Man enters
through a narrow gate when he agrees to be reconciled by receiving the
remission of sin from Jesus' own, from whom the oil and flame of the Holy
Spirit gives oil to the extinguished lamp of faith of the gospel recipient and
ignite faith, for man cannot believe in his own sense and power, if she/he tried, it would be her/his own righteousness.
3. Peace, freedom
of conscience, and joy fill the heart as the fruit of the Holy Ghost.
4. He goes to
follow Jesus' own flock, in the midst of which Jesus is a good shepherd.
5. The Holy Ghost,
through the church of Christ and in our own conscience, directs life, both righteousness
through faith and life.
6. And God shall
prepare you from time to eternity.

2. Peter 1:19
We have also a more sure word of
prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light
that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star
arise in your hearts:

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.
Hear ye therefore
the parable of the sower.
When any one heareth
the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one,
and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received
seed by the way side.
he that received the seed into stony places, the same is he that
heareth the word, and anon with joy receiveth it; Yet hath he not root
in himself, but dureth for a while: for when tribulation or persecution
ariseth because of the word, by and by he is offended. [offended: he
relapseth, or, falleth into sin]
He also that received seed among
the thorns is he that heareth the word; and the care of this world, and
the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becometh
But he that received seed into the good ground is he
that heareth the word, and understandeth it ; which also beareth fruit,
and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.

But glory, honour, and peace, to every
man that worketh good, to the Jew first, and also to the Gentile:
[Gentile: Gr. Greek]
Therefore if the uncircumcision keep
the righteousness of the law, shall not his uncircumcision be counted

But now the righteousness of God
without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the
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:
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; [set forth: or, foreordained] [remission: or, passing over]
To declare, I say, at this time his
righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which
believeth in Jesus.
For what saith the scripture? Abraham
believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness.
But to him that worketh not, but
believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted
Even as David also describeth the
blessedness of the man, unto whom God imputeth righteousness without
Cometh this blessedness then upon the
circumcision only , or upon the uncircumcision also? for we say that
faith was reckoned to Abraham for righteousness.
And he received the sign of
circumcision, a seal of the righteousness of the faith which he had
yet being uncircumcised: that he might be the father of all them that
believe, though they be not circumcised; that righteousness might be
imputed unto them also:
For the promise, that he should be the
heir of the world, was not to Abraham, or to his seed, through the
law, but through the righteousness of faith.

Therefore being justified by faith, we
have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:
And not only so, but we also joy in
God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the
atonement. [atonement: or, reconciliation]
For if by one man's offence death
reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and
of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus
Christ.) [by one man's...: or, by one offence]
Therefore as by the offence of one
judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the
righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto
justification of life. [by the offence...: or, by one offence] [by
the righteousness...: or, by one righteousness]
That as sin hath reigned unto death,
even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life by
Jesus Christ our Lord.
Neither yield ye your members as
instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto
God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as
instruments of righteousness unto God. [instruments: Gr. arms, or,
Know ye not, that to whom ye yield
yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey;
whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?
Being then made free from sin, ye
became the servants of righteousness.
I speak after the manner of men because
of the infirmity of your flesh: for as ye have yielded your members
servants to uncleanness and to iniquity unto iniquity; even so now

ye were free from righteousness. [from...: Gr. to righteousness]

dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.
For he will finish the work, and cut it
short in righteousness: because a short work will the Lord make upon
the earth. [the work: or, the account]
What shall we say then? That the
Gentiles, which followed not after righteousness, have attained to
righteousness, even the righteousness which is of faith.
But Israel, which followed after the
law of righteousness, hath not attained to the law of righteousness.
For they being ignorant of God's
righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness,
have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God.
For Christ is the end of the law for
righteousness to every one that believeth.
For Moses describeth the righteousness
which is of the law, That the man which doeth those things shall live
But the righteousness which is of faith
speaketh on this wise, Say not in thine heart, Who shall ascend into
heaven? (that is, to bring Christ down from above :)
For with the heart man believeth unto
righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
And how shall they preach, except they
be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that
preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!

Be ye not unequally yoked together with
unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with
unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?
2. Cor. 7:13
Therefore we were comforted in your
comfort: yea, and exceedingly the more joyed we for the joy of Titus,

2. Cor. 8:2
How that in a great trial of affliction
the abundance of their joy and their deep poverty abounded unto the
riches of their liberality. [liberality: Gr. simplicity]

and increase the fruits of your righteousness;
2. Cor. 11:15
Therefore it is no great thing if his
ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness;
whose end shall be according to their works.

Finally, brethren, farewell. Be
perfect, be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in peace; and the
God of love and peace shall be with you.
Grace be to you and peace from God the
Father, and from our Lord Jesus Christ,
I do not frustrate the grace of God:
for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain.
Even as Abraham believed God, and it
was accounted to him for righteousness. [accounted: or, imputed]
Is the law then against the promises of
God? God forbid: for if there had been a law given which could have
given life, verily righteousness should have been by the law.
For we through the Spirit wait for the
hope of righteousness by faith.
But the fruit of the Spirit is love,
joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,

rule, peace be on them, and mercy, and upon the Israel of God.
