Those who were waiting to make themselves more worthy of divine favor before they ventured to claim the promises of Yahuwah, were making a fatal mistake. Yahushua alone cleanses from sin; He only can forgive our transgressions. He has pledged Himself to listen to the petition and grant the prayer of those who come to Him in faith. Many have a vague idea that they must make some effort in order to gain the favor of Yahuwah. But all self-dependence is vain. It is only by connecting with Yahushua through faith that the sinner becomes a hopeful, believing child of Yahuwah. The righteousness by which we are justified is imputed; the righteousness by which we are sanctified is imparted. The first is our title to heaven, the second is our fitness for heaven.

The Righteousness Of Yahuwah

1. What is meant by the Bible doctrine of justification?

Answer: To justify means to absolve or declare one innocent who has been guilty. It is a gracious act of Yahuwah whereby, after He pardons and accepts a sinner, He imputes to him His own righteousness and declares before the universe that the sinner is guiltless.

2. How many may be justified?

"And by him all that believe are justified from all things, from which ye could not be justified by the law of Moses.” Acts 13:39.

Answer: Everyone who believes in Yahushua as his Saviour and is willing to accept His righteousness.

3. How many have sinned?

"For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of Yahuwah." Romans 3:23.

4. Whose righteousness has been provided as a substitute for men's sins?

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

Answer: Righteousness of Yahushua, the Anointed.

Justified Freely

5. How do men receive Yahushua's righteousness?

"And not as it was by one that sinned, so is the gift: for the judgment was by one to condemnation, but the free gift is of many offences unto justifica­tion. For if by one man's offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteous­ness shall reign in life by one, Yahushua, the Anointed." Romans 5:16, 17.

Answer: It is a gift from Yahuwah to repentant sinners.

6. What earnest question is asked by Bildad, one of Job's companions?

"How then can man be justified with El? Or how can he be clean that is born of a woman?" Job 25:4.

7. What is the answer to Bildad's question?

"Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in the Anointed, Yahushua." Romans 3:24.

Answer: Yahushua's righteousness is declared to be ours. He lived for us. Paul says, "We shall be saved by his life." Romans 5:10.

8. How does one receive this justification from Yahuwah?

"Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith." Romans 3:28.

Answer: It is by faith. The sinner must ask for pardon and cleansing; he must ask for purity and righteousness, but he must also believe that Yahuwah grants his request.

9. What concrete example makes clear the meaning of this doctrine?

"And he brought him [Abraham] forth abroad, and said, Look now toward heaven, and tell the stars, if thou be able to number them: and he said unto him, So shall thy seed be. And he believed in Yahuwah; and he counted it to him for righteousness." Genesis 15:5, 6.

10. What does Yahuwah do with the sins of those whom He pardons and justifies?


A. He casts them into the depths of the sea.

"He will turn again, he will have compassion upon us; he will subdue our iniquities; and thou wilt cast all their sins into the depths of the sea." Micah 7:19.

B. He casts them behind His back (Isaiah 38:17) and remembers them against us no more forever.

“for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.” Jeremiah 31:34.

C. He blots them out as a thick cloud.

"I have blotted out, as a thick cloud, thy transgressions, and, as a cloud, thy sins: return unto me; for I have redeemed thee." Isaiah 44:22.

D. He takes them away. In place of former sins, He now substitutes His own righteousness.


11. What does Yahuwah promise those who are clothed with the righteousness of Yahushua?

"They shall walk with me in white; for they are worthy. He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels." Revelation 3:4, 5.

12. What does Yahuwah declare concerning those whom He has justified?

"Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified. What shall we then say to these things? If Yahuwah be for us, who can be against us? He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things? Who shall lay any thing to the charge of Yahuwah's elect? It is Yahuwah that justifieth." Romans 8:30-33.

13. When individuals are justified from their past sins, how should they then live?

"Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him." Hebrews 10:38.

14. Must the Christian continue in sin?

"What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? Yahuwah forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?" Romans 6:1, 2.

Answer: No, we must not allow sin to have dominion over us.

15. What is a Christian's proper relation to sin?

"In the same way you also must regard yourselves as dead in rela­tion to sin, but as alive in relation to Yahuwah, because you are in the Anointed, Yahushua." Romans 6:11, Weymouth.

Yahuwah’s Law Written On The Heart

16. What is Yahuwah's goal for those whose sins He has forgiven?

"That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us." Romans 8:4.

17. What will be the attitude of truly converted persons to all of Yahuwah's Ten-Commandment law (especially the fourth)?

"O how love I thy law! It is my meditation all the day." Psalm 119:97.

Yahushua In You

18. Since human beings are too weak to keep Yahuwah's law, what plan has Yahuwah made by which to give them strength?

"That the Anointed may dwell in your hearts by faith." Ephesians 3:17.

19. When Yahushua dwells in the heart, what change is produced?

"That ye might walk worthy of the Master unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of Yahuwah; strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power." Colossians 1:10, 11.

"I can do all things through the Anointed which strengtheneth me." Philippians 4:13.

20. When Yahushua controls the life, what can He do through His children?

"Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us." Ephesians 3:20.

"This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh." Galatians 5:16.

Answer: He can perform His will in and through them.

21. How completely can Yahushua make the surrendered life conform to His will?

"Now the Eloah of peace, that brought again from the dead our Master Yahushua ... make you perfect in every good work to do his will, working in you that which is wellpleasing in his sight, through Yahushua, the Anointed." Hebrews 13:20, 21.

22. What then should be the greatest concern of the Christian?

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

Answer: Seeking and be found in the knowledge of the Anointed, Yahushua, through righteousness which is of Yahuwah by faith.
