I, the LORD, speak righteousness, declaring things that are upright. Isaiah 45:19.

“I have wiped out your transgressions like a thick cloud and your sins like a heavy mist. Return to Me, for I have redeemed you.” Shout for joy, O heavens, for the LORD has done it! Isaiah 44:22-23.

And there is no other God besides Me, a righteous God and a Savior. There is none except Me. Turn to Me and be saved, all the ends of the earth; for I am God, and there is no other. Isaiah 45:21-22.

Only in the LORD are righteousness and strength. Isaiah 45:24.

Today your LORD (יהוה) God says:

I am the LORD your righteousness. Awaken to righteousness. Arise, sleeper, and Christ will be your light. When you are established in righteousness you are far from oppression. Why? When you know I have put you right with Me and wiped out all your transgressions and sins, who can be against you and prevail? It is by receiving the abundance of grace and the GIFT of righteousness that you reign in life through Christ Jesus your Lord.

My apostle Paul understood this well and he wrote: “What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who is against us? He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him over for us all, how will He not also with Him freely give us all things? Who will bring a charge against God’s elect? God is the one who justifies; who is the one who condemns? Christ Jesus is He who died, yes, rather who was raised, who is at the right hand of God, who also intercedes for us.” Romans 8:31-34. And his conclusion no matter what storm or evil comes against you who believe, “In all these things we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:37-39.

When people come against you, they come against Me and they set the seal on how it will be. Vindication is from Me. Pray for those who are coming against you for I am about to vindicate you like I did the Israelites when the Egyptians went after them. For you brought those now turned against you something they did not have. Heaven.

I have made you righteous. Your righteousness is from Me. I imputed all your sins to Jesus and imputed His righteousness to you. I made Him to fulfill the sin offering, the guilt offering, the peace offering and every offering of the Old Covenant. And I have sealed you in Him when you believed My glorious Gospel and made Jesus to be your wisdom, your righteousness, your sanctification, and your redemption. 1 Corinthians 1:30. The Word has gone forth from My mouth in righteousness and will not turn back. Isaiah 45:23. And the seed whose fruit is righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace. James 3:18. My Word is seed and My promise of righteousness is its fruit.

Speak righteousness as I do. I, the LORD, speak righteousness, declaring things that are upright. Isaiah 45:19. And so should you as My dear children. Do not grumble and complain about one another. Do not tell shameful faults. Declare things that are upright. Concentrate your attention on these things of excellence. Walk in a manner worthy of the calling you have received. Awake to your righteousness. It will give you a new self-image, not as an unworthy sinner but as a strong, vibrant, forgiven and blessed conqueror.

I give you the breastplate of righteousness to guard your heart from the oppressor. And it is gold shining forth in the spirit realm, showing at a great distance.

Your righteousness is not based on righteous deeds you have done, it is based on what Jesus did for you. And that cannot change. With the heart a person believes resulting in righteousness. Romans 10:9-10. Remember once the crowds asked Jesus what they could do to do the works of God? And He told them that to do the works of God was to believe in the One whom He sent. It has not changed. My work in you is righteousness.

Do not become embroiled in things below, of earth, come be seated with Me in the place you were meant to be that the devil stole, man’s throne of dominion over the earth, but Jesus took back that throne and I raised you up with Him and seated you there in Him. And Jesus put your name in His Book, the Lamb’s Book of Life. And once you know to take your seat with Him you will see things differently. Your prayers will be above and not beneath.

But to come you must be properly dressed. Remember the parable My Son told where the guest at the wedding feast showed up not properly dressed and was excluded. You must come in the robe of righteousness and the garments of Salvation (clothed in Christ) on the wings of a Spirit filled song. Enter with joyful song when you come to the Holy of Holies. Come up here, sing with David, “Put me on the rock that is higher than I.” And I will show you great and mighty things you could not know, things to come.

Now you can go to the Third Heaven where no one could go till Christ opened the way, the new and living way. Now, with confidence you can go into the Holy of Holies, so why are you so slow to take hold of so great a salvation and such glorious information, impartation and revelation?

Do not stand idle in the marketplace all the day—go to the vineyard and be a laborer I send across someone’s path to guide them home to My house.

I tell you to pray for all men, government leaders, and that all people will be saved and come to know the truth. So start with prayer and go on from there as I direct by My Spirit in you and on you. Start with the basics, “I was hungry and you fed me, thirsty and you gave me drink, naked and you clothed me, ill and you visited me, in prison and you visited me. Start where you are. Be a witness to Me. And from where you are go on to neighbors, cities, states, and countries, nations. Out to the ends of the earth and the islands of the seas. Use all the media available to speak out My Words of life and healing.

Be a person of excellence. Whatever you do, do it with all your heart as unto Me and not to men. When you are faithful in little things we can go on from there to greater. Invest your talents right where you are. Put down roots and become a great tree bearing fruit each day unto Me right where you be. At any moment of time, let your words be as solid gold for eternity.

How do you become like that mighty tree? Follow Me. I tell you in Psalm 1 that a man who studies and speaks the Word and meditates on it day and night is like a tree planted near underground springs which yields its fruit in its season and its leaf does not wither; and in whatever he does, he prospers. Psalm 1:1-3.

I plant you in My courts, in My house as oaks of righteousness. Have you not read from the prophet Isaiah from the continuation of what Jesus read from the scroll of Isaiah in the synagogue in Nazareth when He began His ministry, “To grant those who mourn in Zion, giving them beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, the mantle of praise instead of a spirit of fainting. So they will be called oaks of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that He may be glorified.” Isaiah 61:3. Oaks of righteousness. Oaks have tap roots. Rooted and grounded in Christ, drawing up all the grace you need for a fruitful life.

I love you. I have made you righteous with My own righteousness and My righteousness will never change. The righteous man will flourish like the palm tree, he will grow like a cedar in Lebanon. Planted in My house, they will flourish in My courts. They will still yield fruit in old age. They shall be full of sap and very green, to declare that I, the LORD, am upright; that I am your rock, and there is no unrighteousness in Me. Psalm 92:14-15.
