Perfect Righteousness is a Gift at the moment of salvation! It is not something we earn or deserve.

In Joh 2, we noted that God chose for Jesus Christ to perform a miracle through the power of the Spirit to express and to expose our Lord to all of us through the Word of God.

Every time our Lord spoke about the Angel Conflict, there was a woman who interfered with His message by using a statement to honor the womb and take the attention of the woman.

The false leaders want for us to reject President Trump and to go back to the liberals and to become more like communism and socialism as we to imprison those who had been released about 400 men, most violent ones by the prisons in New York.

The importance of the woman’s womb and how it is used by Satan and the Kingdom of Darkness to pervert, to destroy, too sidetrack both the woman and the male from their personal sense of destiny.

It is not something we earn or deserve; it is something that was freely given to us at the moment of salvation.

Life more abundantly or the abundant life begins when you understand that there is no place for guilt or condemnation, or depression, or bitterness, striving or struggling in the Christian way of life.

Life more abundantly or the abundant life begins when you understand HEB 8:12 For I will be merciful to their iniquities. and I will remember their sins no more.

Life more abundantly or the abundant life begins when you understand Psa 103:12 As far as the east is from the west. so far has He removed our transgressions from us.

Life more abundantly or the abundant life begins when you understand ISA 38:17c For You have cast all their sins behind their back.

Life more abundantly or the abundant life begins when you understand Psa 103:10 He has not dealt with us according to our sins, nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.

  1. First, human life is imputed to the soul.

Speaking to Jonah because he was angry that a tree died, the Lord said in Jonah 4:10  “What’s this? How is it that you can change your feelings from pleasure to anger overnight about a mere shade tree that you did nothing to get? You neither planted nor watered it. It grew up one night and died the next night.

JON 4:11 “And should I not have compassion on Nineveh, the great city in which there are more than 120,000 persons who do not know {the difference} between their right and left hand, as well as many animals?”

The principle behind the divine decrees is that since condemnation precedes salvation, they must be condemned before they can be saved, therefore they are condemned at birth.

Soul life is provided by God at birth, Job 33:4; Ecc 12:7ISA 45:2.

Job 33:4 “And the breath from God has created me [a human being], and the breath [soul life] of the Almighty gives me [human] life.”

Ecc 12:7  then the dust [human body] will return to the earth as it was, and the soul-life will return to God Who gave it.

GEN 2:7  tells us when this life began, Then the Lord God formed man of dust from the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being.

ISA 43:7  Everyone who is called by My name, And whom I have created for My glory, Whom I have formed, even whom I have made.”

In ISA 45:12,  “It is I who made the earth, and created man upon it. I stretched out the heavens with My hands, And I ordained all their host.

ISA 57:16  “For I will not contend forever, Neither will I always be angry; For the spirit would grow faint before Me, And the breath of those whom I have made.

The reason is because the sin nature is a part of biological life and is not passed on by God, as noted in Rom 6:6, 7:14.

Gal 5:16; EPH 2:3.

Without soul life, biological life does not become a human being.

Biological life originates with our parents; soul life originates from God at birth.

And, only Adam and the woman were given biological and soul  life simultaneously at original creation.

Prin-God imputes human life to the format soul at birth; therefore, God gives human life.

  1. The second imputation which is a part of the divine decrees is Adam’s original sin imputed to the old sin nature, automatically condemning each member of the human race at birth.

PSA 51:5  Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, And in sin my mother conceived me.

PSA 58:3  The wicked are estranged from the womb; These who speak lies go astray from birth.

ISA 48:8  “You have not heard; you have not known. Even from long ago your ear has not been open, Because I knew that you would deal very treacherously; And you have been called a rebel from birth.

GEN 8:21  for the intent of man’s heart is evil from his youth;

Rom 5:12   Therefore, just as through one-man sin entered into the world, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men, because all sinned‑‑

Rom 5:19 for as through the one man’s disobedience the many were made sinners, even so through the obedience of the one the many will be made righteous.

Selection is a technical term related to the divine imputation of human life at the point of physical birth.

At the moment of physical birth, God imputes human life to the format soul, at which point the individual becomes alive.

Now that he is out of the womb, he is a human being.

Job describes the limits of life:  Out from the womb and to the tomb.

The limits of human life are from birth to death.

At birth, God creates soul life and imputes it to biological life.

At death, God removes soul life from biological life, and for the believer, takes that soul life to heaven.

This is why Job says in verse 19, I would have been “as though I had not existed.”

Job could not die before birth, because he was not a human being prior to birth.

Job 1:21, “The Lord gave [soul life at birth], and the Lord has taken it away [at death]; blessed be the name of the Lord.”

Biological life is only temporary.

Soul life is permanent.

In Job 5:7, “for a man is born for trouble, as sparks fly upward.”

JOB 14:1  “Man, who is born of woman, Is short‑lived and full of turmoil.”

It is not surprising that the Bible emphasizes human experience as existing between birth and death, not conception and death.

Psa 58:3, “The wicked are estranged outside the womb [me rechem]; those who speak lies go astray outside the womb [mi beten].”

Ecc 3:2, “There is a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to uproot what is planted.”

So, at the moment of physical birth, God imputes human life to the format soul, at which point the individual becomes alive.

Therefore, life has meaning, purpose, and definition for everyone, regardless of environment or circumstances, historical prosperity or historical adversity.

  1. Human life is imputed to the soul.
  2. Adam’s original sin imputed to the old sin nature.

 

  1. The third imputation as a part of the divine decrees takes place at the point of faith in Christ, eternal life is imputed to the human spirit, created by God the Holy Spirit (called regeneration).

TIT 3:5  He saved us, not on the basis of deeds which we have done in righteousness, but according to His mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewing by the Holy Spirit,

  1. The fourth imputation in the divine decrees is the perfect righteousness is imputed as a judicial imputation to the believer at salvation.

2CO 5:21  He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.
