1 Corinthians 1:30. But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:

Beloved, how best can your loving  Father. in heaven  be described? See how the Bible describes  His most prominent attribute that you also must desire and live as a lifestyle. All of these are discovered in the course of preaching Christ, our righteousness.

Psalms 145:17. The Lord is righteous in all his ways, and holy in all his works.

Your Father in heaven is righteous and He loveth to be seeing righteousness in the lives of His people and that includes you.

Psalms 11:7. For the righteous Lord loveth righteousness; his countenance doth behold the upright.

Psalms 146:8: The LORD openeth the eyes of the blind: the LORD raiseth them that are bowed down: the LORD loveth the righteous:

See men of like passion like you in Bible days who lived righteous lifestyle.
1. Noah

Genesis 7:1 And the Lord said unto Noah, Come thou and all thy house into the ark; for thee have I seen righteous before me in this generation.

Hebrews 11:7. By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith.

2. Abel

Hebrews 11:4. By faith Abel offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, by which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts: and by it he being dead yet speaketh.

Beloved, to help the people of God to be righteous, He provided them with righteous statues.

Deuteronomy 4:8. And what nation is there so great, that hath statutes and judgments so righteous as all this law, which I set before you this day?

In addition, He  also strengthen and enabled  His people of all ages and you too,to be righteous. This He did, by making His only begotten Son to go through  the  most painful and most shameful cruel sacrifice  of the cross.

Isaiah 45:24-25.  Surely, shall one say, in the LORDhave I righteousness and strength: even to him shall men come; and all that are incensed against him shall be ashamed.  In the LORD shall all the seed of Israel be justified, and shall glory.

Jeremiah 23:5-6.  ¶Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth.  In his days Judah shall be saved, and Israel shall dwell safely: and this is his name whereby he shall be called, THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.

Jeremiah 33:16: In those days shall Judah be saved, and Jerusalem shall dwell safely: and this is the name wherewith she shall be called, The LORDour righteousness.

Don’t ever forget, the price Jesus paid for you to be righteous before God. See it.

Isaiah 53:4-8. Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all. He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth. He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken.

When you are always mindful of this great price of Christ and you live a lifestyle of righteousness, then you shall receive  rewards for righteousness.

Psalms 5:12. For thou, Lord, wilt bless the righteous; with favour wilt thou compass him as with a shield.

Psalms 34:15-19. The eyes of the Lord are upon the righteous, and his ears are open unto their cry. The face of the Lord is against them that do evil, to cut off the remembrance of them from the earth. The righteous cry, and the Lord heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles. The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit. Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the Lord delivereth him out of them all.

Proverbs 14:34. Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people.

Isaiah 3:10. Say ye to the righteous, that it shall be well with him: for they shall eat the fruit of their doings.

Isaiah 54:17: ¶No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This isthe heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.

However, if anyone and everyone and that includes you, trivialise  the cruel and costly sacrifice of Christ to make them righteous, then, they also experience painful and shameful punishment. This shall not be your portion  in Jesus name.

Psalms 1:5-6. Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. For the Lord knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.

Romans 1:28-32. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

Dearly beloved, how best can the gospel be preached without proclaiming the unequal and sin free righteous lifestyle of our Lord and Saviour. This  singular wholesome most glorious and most gracious attribute of our Lord is His matchless righteous lifestyle, that qualifies Him, to redeem believers of all ages and make them righteous. Hallelujah. They are inexhaustible. See  a little.

Isaiah 53:11: He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities.

Daniel 9:24: Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy.

Romans 5:18 -19. Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift cameupon all men unto justification of life.  For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.

Romans 5:21: That as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord.

Romans 10:1-4. Brethren, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved. For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge. For they being ignorant of God’s righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God. For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth.

2 Corinthians 5:21: For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.

Hebrews 1:9. Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.

Hebrews 7:26: For such an high priest became us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens;

1 Peter 2:22: Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth:
1 Peter 3:18: For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit:

1 John 2:1: My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous:

1 John 2:29: If ye know that he is righteous, ye know that every one that doeth righteousness is born of him.

1 John 3:5: And ye know that he was manifested to take away our sins; and in him is no sin.

This desirable righteousness is what the blessed Holy Spirit is revealing through the book of Corinth, for believers of ages and you to receive by faith in His precious blood, that, He shed on the cross. No doubt Jesus is our righteousness, through whom believers of all ages and you are made righteous before His righteous Father.  This righteousness is referred to as imputed righteousness. See it.

1 Corinthians 1:21-24 For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe. For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom: But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness; But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.

1 Corinthians 1:30. But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:

Dearly beloved, see  how He accomplished making believers of all ages and you righteous before God. This is  called imputed righteousness.. However, His grace help us to attain and walk in  imparted righteousness.

Romans 1:17: For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.

Romans 3:21-22. But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets; Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference:

Romans 3:24-26. Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God; To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.

After we have been accepted by God through His imputed righteousness, believers of all ages, especially you, needed to attain through His sufficient grace  imparted righteousness.. See it.

Titus 2:11-12. For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world;

But then as believers take advantage of the imputed righteousness through Christ, by faith  and by His grace walk in imparted righteousness, see what  they become. This should be your goal and lifestyle till Christ comes.

Romans 8:1-4. There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death. For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh: That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

2 Corinthians 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.

Philippians 3:7-9. But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ. Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ, And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith:

2 Peter 1:1: Simon Peter, a servant and an apostle of Jesus Christ, to them that have obtained like precious faith with us through the righteousness of God and our Saviour Jesus Christ:

Receive His grace to attain all of these in Jesus name.
Friend, glory to God for your continual preparations  for the dawning rapture. It shall not elude you in Jesus name.  However, it is important for you to know that, if your dream shall be realised, you must have faith in the atonement through which, you are made righteous before God. That is to say, you have unwavering faith only in  the precious blood Jesus shed on the cross of Calvary. This is what made Jesus our Lord, your singular acceptable righteousness.

1 Corinthians 1:30. But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:

Very importantly, you need to be mindful of the following salient very important eternity defining truths.
1. The unrighteous who are destitute of His imputed righteousness shall not be part of the rapture or live eternally with God. Be sure you are not part of these groups of people inside and outside of the church globally.

1 Corinthians 6:9-10. Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.

Revelation 21:27. And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb’s book of life.

2.  The righteous which must include you are the only saints that shall take part in the dawning rapture and also  shine in heaven for all eternity. You shall be there in Jesus name.

Matthew 13:43. Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.

3. Like Paul the apostle faithful and raptured saints like you shall receive  a crown of righteousness  at the marriage supper of the Lamb. It shall be so for you too in Jesus name.

2 Timothy 4:7-8. I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.
