Truth and Consequences series
Truth Leads To Righteousness
The ambivalence of Truth or having mixed feelings or contradictory ideas about something like doing the Will of God will not lead to righteousness. The consequence of Isaiah 33 is a prophecy that basically announces that those who do evil to other will eventually have evil worked on them. We use the word reciprocity to indicate an exchange; the prophecy of Isaiah promised that the unstoppable torment of the Assyrian army would be met with due reciprocity. God allows us to fall into the hands of torment when we dismiss His Will. When we seek the Kingdom of God first, things of the Kingdom will be our reward, the Assyrians choose evil so that is what they reaped. The things of the Kingdom which lead us to righteousness are the gifts and the resulting fruits of the gifts. For reference the 9 gifts of the Spirit are (1 Corinthians 12:1-10): word of wisdom, word of knowledge, faith, healing, working of miracles, prophecy, discerning of spirits, divers kinds of tongues, interpretation of tongues and the 9 fruits of the Spirit are (Galatians 5:22-23): love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance.
But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
Woe to thee that spoilest, and thou wast not spoiled; and dealest treacherously, and they dealt not treacherously with thee! when thou shalt cease to spoil, thou shalt be spoiled; and when thou shalt make an end to deal treacherously, they shall deal treacherously with thee.
El Bethel, The God of the House of God (Genesis 35:7); we give thanks for the temperance exposed by the virtues of Your righteousness unto which we follow the Truth. For the supernatural manifestations of Your Gifts by which we inherit the fruits of the Spirit we give a shout of praise. We declare and decree blessings upon those who have and continue to seek the Kingdom of God for it's righteousness so that, we who abide in the secret place of the most high will rest in the shadow of His Mercy and build the Kingdom of God. Now, for the sake of the Kingdom and for the Glory of God, we petition, with an anointing in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, Amen.
