|Romans 1:17 |
17 For in it [the gospel preached by the Holy Spirit] the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith;1 as it is written, "The righteous shall live by faith." [The righteousness of God is revealed in you as you increase in your faith. From the Word of the Lord within: "my true friends proceed from faith; it orders them. Little by little the Lord's will, will be progressed. Faith is a series of revelations;" with each revelation there is more faith and more righteous order in your life. You are saved through faith, and by faith your hearts are purified; but obviously in the beginning of faith, you are not purified, neither are you saved. Before purification and salvation, your faith must be tested in several trials, in which you must grievously suffer in order to be purified of sin. You must contend for the faith, grow in the faith, build up your faith, increase in faith, perfect what is lacking in your faith, fight the good fight of faith, until victory when your faith is finished by the finisher; faith is a process and a journey, the end of which is to see Christ bring your salvation, to bring your eternal life.]
1 in it (the gospel) the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith. The Holy Spirit, when he comes, he will prove the world wrong [reprove] of sin, and righteousness, and judgment. John 16:8. The Holy Spirit, telling you the good news of your coming salvation (gospel), teaches you about the righteousness of God by a series of revelations that build your faith in succession; as your faith increases, the righteousness of God increases in you. Faith, revelation, more faith, revelation, more faith...etc. No man knows the Son but the Father, neither does any man know the Father except the Son, and anyone to whom the Son wills to reveal him. Mat 11:27. Because what may be known of God is revealed in them; Rom 1:19. Learning about God is not reading about God, not hearing someone talk about God, for God is known by revelation in your heart, where you hear him and see him teach you about sin, righteousness, and himself.
"The Father is in you all, Christ is in you, and the Kingdom of Heaven is in you; there, in your hearts, is where you will find them all. Know him there searching your hearts, and find him there trying your minds and hearts; incline your ears, and give ear to him there, who will render to everyone of you according to your words and works whether they are good or evil," (by George Fox). BE STILL AND KNOW THAT I AM GOD. Psalm 46:10.
