"Matthew 28:20 Teaching them to observe (do) all things whatsoever I (Jesus Christ) have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.2 Corinthians 7:1 ... dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God."

It is strange that the word 'justification' is used by false preachers a lot more than others. They say that God calls you 'just' while you are not 'just' or God calls you righteous while you are unrighteous or committing sin. And they say that this is justification. But, God is the TRUTH. He will never call unrighteous as righteous, or sinning as 'just'. Yet they preach this lie, and Christians swallow this lie with no discernment. "Romans 5:1 Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:" In common vocabulary, justify may mean to call the wrong thing as right in certain situations. But, according to the Bible, God converts an evil person to be a good person and it is changing a person to be a just person, and it is called justification. Or, God converts an unrighteous person into a righteous person, or we may say that he will be made righteous and it is called justify the person. But, it is not to call an unrighteous person as righteous, or to call a sinning person as a saved person, which are lies of the devil. But preachers will do this, just because preachers are used to saying this lie, and it will not become truth. But, God converts the person and he will be doing this by his grace. "Titus 3:7 That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life." This person will be changed in his life and he will receive eternal life, which is for eternity to come.
God Bless You
