Scripture: Acts 3:19-26
Acts 3:19-26 says, “Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord, and that He may send Jesus Christ, who was preached to you before, whom heaven must receive until the times of restoration of all things, which God has spoken by the mouth of all His holy prophets since the world began. For Moses truly said to the fathers, ‘The Lord your God will raise up for you a Prophet like me from your brethren. Him you shall hear in all things, whatever He says to you. And it shall be that every soul who will not hear that Prophet shall be utterly destroyed from among the people.’ Yes, and all the prophets, from Samuel and those who follow, as many as have spoken, have also foretold these days. You are sons of the prophets, and of the covenant which God made with our fathers, saying to Abraham, ‘And in your seed all the families of the earth shall be blessed.’ To you first, God, having raised up His Servant Jesus, sent Him to bless you, in turning away every one of you from your iniquities.” This passage emphasizes the Judicial Christ. Christ is a prophet like Moses and He is the original plumbline by which everyone is judged in the last days. We are told that all the prophets from Samuel on have foretold our days. We are also told in this passage that we are the sons of the prophets and the sons of the covenant which God made with our fathers saying to Abraham, “‘And in your seed all the families of the earth shall be blessed.’ To you first, God, having raised up His Servant Jesus, sent Him to bless you, in turning away every one of you from your iniquities.” We know that righteousness is the essential path that Christ walked for us and now by faith we participate in that path of righteousness that Christ walked, guaranteeing that the fruit of that path of righteousness which is according to Proverbs the ability to execute judgment. It is not based on our righteousness. It is based on Christ’s righteousness and He walked in perfect righteousness. He is the only One who ever did. He is our standard. We trust Him. We are in Him. Christ is our cloak. He is our clothes. He is our covering. He did it all right and in Him we have the authority to execute financial judgment. The sooner we get ahold of that the better it is going to be for everybody that is headed into the Last Days. God wants to execute some financial judgment. Surely we realize that the resources that God put in the earth are not intended for the wicked. This is a foundational part of Scripture and important for us to understand.
