A GROUP CALLED - THE RIGHTEOUS

2Co 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. (KJV)

Those of us in Christian faith have been reading this statement "the righteous shall live by faith" which appears through out the scripture and we may not have taken it seriously. This is especially so, because Christian faith has been riding easy in many countries some almost started thinking that to be a Christian means life of 'ease' we almost forgot that Christian faith was born by death even the death of the Cross; Christian faith was propagated by the blood of the saints and much more so by the blood of the apostles of Jesus.

If this group called the 'righteous' will accomplish God’s purpose for their lives and make a difference in a rotting world, they may be called to say with Habakkuk.

Not until year 2008 when the world economic world started collapsing, even before then, Kenyans had first hand experience of what surrounding countries have gone through for years-political and ethnic violence. Both the world economic and Kenyan political and ethnical crises were brought forth by greed; greed for riches and power.

The world system is set up in a manner that if one wants to do business with it he/she has to be corrupted; would this be the reason during the time of Jesus temptation, the devil told Jesus to worship him first before the devil could allow him to enjoy the wealth of the world? Mathew 4:28 (something to think about)

With the condition the world is in believers need to be reminded what those who were before us understood, this group called 'the righteous shall live by faith'. They shall live by trusting the faithfulness of their God. This God has revealed himself through out generations that he does not change by situations and is not limited by nothing. He will choose the desert to lead his people for forty years and he becomes all that they need all the way. He will choose to go to war with Gideon with weapons of worship rather than swords and spears and still won the battles. In our generation he has shown, he can win for the young nation of Israel even though surrounded by millions upon millions of her enemies.

This group called the righteous shall live by faith.If this group will not be corrupted by the world of greed and evil they may be called to cry with the psalmist "I will lift up my eyes to the hills, from where cometh my help? My help cometh from the Lord, who made heaven and earth." Psalms 121:1.

The members of this group need to understand the central position that the Lord is supposed to occupy in their lives. He says "I will never leave you nor forsake you…" Do you want to become a member of this group? How do you become a member of this group?

Hab 3:17 Although the fig tree shall not blossom, neither shall fruit be in the vines; the labour of the olive shall fail, and the fields shall yield no meat; the flock shall be cut off from the fold, and there shall be no herd in the stalls: 18 Yet I will rejoice in the LORD, I will joy in the God of my salvation. (KJV)
