What Is The Doctrine of Imputation?
DID YOU KNOW THAT YOU ARE UNDER "THE DOCTRINE OF IMPUTATION?" NO ! WELL WE ALL ARE - IT'S IN OUR MINDSET AND PLACED THERE BY DECEIT. THE DOCTRINE OF IMPUTATION IS A LIE WHICH WE NEED TO UNDERSTAND AND REJECT.
Put very simply the meaning of imputation in Search Results is: "Imputation is the attributing of actions to a source: often, imputation involves actions that are criminal. Imputation takes words or actions and ties them to a person or a cause. An imputation is when you say "He did it!" Imputations are therefore similar to accusations".
The fact is (as far as our status is concerned before repentance) WE ARE ALL CRIMINALS. Sin has been our captive, which emanates through all our behaviours. The 'so-called' DOCTRINE OF THE IMPUTATIONS OF SALVATION SAYS THAT MESSIAH STOOD IN OUR PLACE, PAID OUR DEBT THROUGH HIS SACRIFICE, DELIVERING US THROUGH OUR BELIEF IN HIM AND WE ARE THEREFORE FREE FROM SIN. Then the instruction from here is to Build His "Church".
This of course is a Christian Doctrine and many have been baptised since babies, reckoning themselves saved and righteous, but their real behaviour is unrighteous, especially the cultivated nobility leading in example. Brothers and Sisters THIS MIXTURE OF CONFUSION IS CONFUSING, TO THE MAJORITY. People are really walking about believing they are righteous but their deeds are wickedness to others. You see them at Sunday Services being ever so well behaved. But during the week they are nasty and mean.
OUR BEHAVIOUR TOWARDS THOSE AROUND US IS WHAT WE ARE TO, IN REALITY, BUILD ON. OUR FOUNDATION IS OF COURSE ON YAHUSHA MESSIAH AND WHATEVER SUBSTANCE WE CHOOSE TO BUILD WITH WILL BE TESTED BY FIRE, AS WILL OUR OWN BEHAVIOUR.
There needs to be understanding of what righteousness really is: Dictionaries says that RIGHTEOUSNESS IS "BEHAVIOUR" THAT IS MORALLY JUSTIFIABLE. After we have received deliverance (salvation) the task of being perfected is an arduous one and we are not to despise or faint from our disciplines while Yahuah (the Father) is moulding us. Having received a relationship with Messiah through (His) this process, we are ready to do works for Him that reward us. OUR BEHAVIOUR IN MANIFESTING TURAH AT EVERY POSSIBLE OPPORTUNITY GIVEN TO US, is usually in our dealings with our Brothers or Sisters and towards those not yet saved.
So RIGHTEOUSNESS IS A BEHAVIOUR AND WE ARE TOLD TO BUILD THE "SPIRITUAL TEMPLE," not the "Physical Church". Remembering Yahusha said "My reign (Kingdom) is not of this earth." This is the confusion in the mixture, one is behaving righteousness (actually building for eternity) and the other is behaving self righteously, building a man made structure for the fire, impossible to last for eternity.
IMPUTATION WILL BRING YOU INTO THE FLESHY BEHAVIOUR OF UNRIGHTEOUSNESS, DECEIT AND HOPELESSNESS. Once we are delivered into salvation, the behavioural work begins. Yes, our previous sins are washed away and OUR DELIVERANCE IS ONLY A DOWN PAYMENT. THIS DOWN PAYMENT MUST GROW AND PAY THE DIVIDEND MESSIAH DEMANDS. WE HAVE TO GIVE ACCOUNT FOR EVERY WORD, DEED, THOUGHT AND ACTION DONE IN THE BODY MESSIAH NOW OWNS ON HIS EARTH.
Brothers and Sisters beware of imputation. It will tell you that "once saved always saved", and "we are not saved by works, just take everything easy and you will make it, so enjoy yourself." Remember there is a difference between the weeds and the wheat which is their "BEHAVIOUR."
Many teachers today are against us overcoming with the THREE RULES which are true and a massive help, and their behaviour reveals their status as ours reveals ours.
