His Word is Truth

Unadulterated Biblical Truth

"They have good, therefore they are righteous"                          "They have bad, therefore they are not righteous"


There are 2 misconceptions that are related, and also working off of each other to mislead people.


1st, there is a misconception that because a person, or group of people "prosper and grow", or receive anything that is good, that this could not be without the "hand of Elohim", implying that if you see any good for someone that they're good and righteous, being blessed by the Father.


2nd, on the other side, some think that because a person, or group of people receive bad things in this life, and do not appear to be mightily blessed, then they are not righteous, and they are cursed and not loved by the Father.



These 2 misconceptions are not of the truth, and they are not biblical, and actually likely reveal that they've not read the Bible.


If you have read the book of Yob(Job), then you would see that what takes place in it greatly contradicts the misconception that if someone has bad, then they are not righteous or have sinned.
Yob is a very righteous man, blameless, who feared Elohim and shunned evil.
YHWH at the time says there is none on the earth like Yob.
The satan brought all sorts of bad onto Yob, disaster, pain, and suffering. YHWH allowed it, and it was a test for Yob, to prove him righteous, and Yob remained faithful to YHWH through it all, even his wife said to him during this;

Job 2:9 "Then his wife said to him, do you still hold fast to your integrity? Curse Elohim and die! But he said to her, you speak as one of the foolish women speaks. Shall we indeed accept good from Elohim, and shall we not accept adversity? In all this Yob did not sin with his lips"



Yob has friends who come and accusing him of being bad, and deserving it all, they use false judgment against him, and speak incorrect things.
At the end of the book, YHWH rebukes those men;


Job 42:7 "And so it was, after YHWH had spoken these words to Yob, that YHWH said to Eliphaz the Temani, My wrath is aroused against you and your two friends, for you have not spoken of Me what is right, as my servant Yob has. Now therefore take for yourselves 7 bulls and 7 rams, go to my servant Yob, and offer up for yourselves a burnt offering, and my servant Yob shall pray for you, for I will accept him, lest I deal with you according to your folly, because you have not spoken of Me what is right, as my servant Yob has"



Then afterward, when Yob prayed for his friends, YHWH restored Yob's losses and even gave him twice as much as he had before, and he was greatly blessed.

I find it interesting that it was when Yob prayed for those who had wronged him, is when he was restored.
Let us be forgiving and gracious, just as the Father is.





Now, the blessings of the wicked are indeed from Elohim in one sense,
he makes the rain fall on them, and the food they're eating he made, and the things they have are from his creation, etc..

But that does not mean the wicked are righteous, and are being blessed by Elohim and given good things from him.


This misconception is being used to blind the people, it creates false judgment, and it also helps cause people to not seek YHWH and follow his Word.

People imply, and are under the impression, that they have no need to change anything they are doing, and they have no need to seek improvement and refinement constantly.

They think that because something good has happened to them, or someone else, that they don't need to repent and obey his commandments.



The scriptures even specifically warn us about not thinking like this, and speak of how the wicked may think such things.



Psalms 92:7 "When the wicked spring as the grass, and when all the workers of iniquity do flourish, it is that they shall be destroyed for ever"


Don't be deceived, and study the scriptures to know who is good and who is not.
Just because a good thing happens to you, does not mean you're righteous.
So fear Elohim and obey him.

If YHWH does good to you, that should be more reason for you to actually seek him and be careful to do what he has said, because he has shown you grace and love, even when you didn't deserve it.


Paul;
Romans 2:4 "Or do you presume on the riches of his kindness and forbearance and patience, not knowing that the kindness of Elohim is meant to lead you to repentance?"





Ancient Yisrael when it had strayed and corrupted, was deceived by this same thought, because they seen no bad things happening they gained confidence that their way was fine, and they would not change, and it misled them up until YHWH destroyed them.


Possibly, it could have been reversed at that time, as Isaiah 57:1 makes it sound like the good people perished which spared them from the great evil that was coming.

Such as some were blessed with peaceful death, yet to the average person it would appear like a horrible thing happened to that person who died and probably wouldn't think to themselves they died because they were good, but maybe even thought to themselves see this person did what they claimed we needed to do yet they suffered a curse.
Which is really something to think about.


Anyway, dying peacefully in a peaceful manner and time, is much more desirable than having the protection of YHWH lifted from you and your people, and having evil ones flood over your land.
It is more desirable than being mutilated, seeing your people slain, raped, the carcasses of your people being fed to animals, and just totally given over to a wicked heathen nation that would take you captive and steal everything you have worked for your entire life.

YHWH's fence of protection departed from Yisrael and he warned them repeatedly that it would happen.
The only reason they had his blessings in the 1st place is because they were his people, keeping his ways.


Just because something good happens to you doesn't mean the words of YHWH are not true where he says you must obey him or be cursed.
The curse will catch up to you even if it's not very obvious that it's on you already.
So do not make the mistakes of our ancestors.
Study the bible so you don't repeat the same things over and over. We need YHWH's shelter so we are not given up to wicked ones, we gain this by loving him and serving him, which includes obeying him!




Also I will mention and expand on later, people are taking it that they're blessed by Elohim, and are right with him, because of kindness of another person. Such as a person buys you a meal when you're short on cash.
You should be thankful to Elohim of course and that person, but do not be blinded and think you're good enough in your walk just because some person does a nice deed for you.
Is it not realized that we are living our own lives and have freedom of choice?
Also, the Satan can show you plenty of kindness, but you should know that would not mean you're right with Elohim.
