Clothed and Filled With Righteousness

No one has anything in him out of which righteousness can be made. Thus the righteousness of God is put, literally, into and upon all that believe. Then they are both clothed with righteousness, and filled with it, according to the Scripture. In fact, they then become "the righteousness of God" in Christ. And how is this accomplished? God declares His righteousness upon the one who believes. To declare is to speak.

Lessons on the Science of Faith-6

The Advent Review and Sabbath Herald

Vol. 76, No. 1.—Battle Creek, Mich., January 3, 1899,—p. 8.

Faith is the expecting the word of God to do what the word says, and depending upon that word to do what the word says. 

When this is clearly discerned, it is perfectly easy to see how it is that "faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." 

Lessons on the Science of Faith-5

The Advent Review and Sabbath Herald

Vol. 75, No. 52.—Battle Creek, Mich., December 27, 1898,—p. 832.

Faith is the expecting the word of God to do what it says, and the depending upon that word to do what it says. 

As that is faith, and as faith comes by the word of God, it is plain that the word of God, in order to inculcate faith, must teach that the word has in itself power to accomplish what itself says.

WHEN the centurion said to Jesus that he need not "come and heal" his servant, but that if he would "speak the word only," the servant would be healed, Jesus "said to them that followed, Verily I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel." 

Testimony of E. J. Waggoner at 1899 GC

Testimony Given at Opening Meeting of General Conference 1899

My heart is full of thanksgiving to God this morning. I can not tell of so long an experience as some of these who have spoken before me; but I know that God is almighty now. He is good to-day. ''What shall I render unto the Lord for all his benefits toward me? I will take the cup of salvation, and call upon the name of the Lord." Goodness and mercy have followed me continually, and never more than since the last General Conference and during the last year.
