God's Children Know His Righteousness
“O My people, remember now what Balak king of Moab counseled, and what Balaam the son of Beor answered him… that you may know the righteousness of the Lord” (Micah 6:5, NKJV). “…Israel remained in Acacia Grove and the people began to commit harlotry with the women of Moab. They… [made] sacrifices [to] their gods, and… bowed down to… [them]. So Israel joined to Baal of Peor and the anger of the Lord was aroused against Israel. …[When] the plague was stopped among the children of Israel, …[the death total was 24,000. And it was] Phinehas, the son of Eleazar, the son of Aaron the priest, [who] turned back [God’s] wrath from the children of Israel …so [He] did not consume the…[Israelites]…” (Numbers 25:1-15, NKJV). “…All who do what is right are God’s children” (1 John 2:29, NLT). “…When people do what is right it shows that they are righteous, even as Christ is righteous” (1 John 3:7, NKJV & Isa 54:17). “…It will be righteousness [and blessings] for us if we… observe… [God’s] commandments…” (Deut 6:25, NKJV & Rev 22:14). “Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to ANY people” (Prov 14:34, NLT).
