Who is righteous? Who shall live? And who shall die?



While watching a teaching by 119 Ministries, I saw these verses, and thought them incredible, to say the least. Look at the definition of a righteous man, compared to the definition of an unrighteous man. According to these verses, the righteous shall live, while the unrighteous shall die.

Eze 18:

5“But if a man is righteous and shall do right-ruling and righteousness,
6if he has not eaten on the mountains, nor lifted up his eyes to the idols of the house of Yisra’ĕl, nor defiled his neighbour’s wife, nor comes near a woman during her uncleanness,
7if he does not oppress anyone, does return to the debtor his pledge, does not commit robbery, does give his bread to the hungry and covers the naked with a garment,
8if he does not lend on interest or take increase, turns back his hand from unrighteousness, executes right-ruling in truth between man and man,
9if he walks in My laws, and he has guarded My right-rulings in truth – he is righteous, he shall certainly live!” declares the Master יהוה.
10“But if he has brought forth a son who is a robber or a shedder of blood, who does any of these –
11whereas he himself did not do any of these – that also he has eaten on the mountains or defiled his neighbour’s wife,
12if he has oppressed the poor and needy, has committed robbery, he does not return a pledge, has lifted his eyes to the idols, or did abomination,
13if he has lent on interest or taken increase – shall he live? He shall not live! If he has done any of these abominations, he shall certainly die, his blood is upon him.

My dear brothers and sisters, may we all live in righteousness before our Elohim! May we obey His word, and live!

Shabbat shalom!
