This critical concept of how God's righteousness is revealed will free you in ways you never thought possible. I have found that most Christians do not have a clear comprehensive understanding of this doctrine.
But the intention here is to understand what God's righteousness means when .. we need to pause to comment on a few that have not been examined thus far.

Trouble and turmoil is ever with him, who sees injustice, confusion, and contradiction; But he who sees Justice, Order, and Harmony is calm and filled with peace. Error sees error; and Truth sees Truth.
Error, being darkness, cannot penetrate the light; But Truth, being light, can penetrate the darkness. Truth reconciles darkness with light. He who looks with the eye of error is restless as the shifting winds. But restful as the stable mountain is he who looks with the eye of Truth. We are reconciled to the world; We are reconciled to humanity; And being thus reconciled we are at rest. Where unrest is, there is no reconciliation ; And they who are not so reconciled have not received the Truth. All things are proportionate ; All circumstances are just; All events are of causation.
He who has received the Light of Truth sees all things in their right relations. All things are ruled by causation; All things are of the nature of causation; There is nothing which is not contained in cause and effect. Cause and effect are one : The Divine Law is one Out of chaos into Cosmos have we come; Out of confusion into harmony; Out of bewilderment into peace perpetual.
There is good in all things. Out of evil comes suffering; Out of suffering comes sorrow; And from sorrow is lowly wisdom born. Though the night be long, the Morning comes; And with it comes sunshine and singing. Though the world be in its long night, the Great Day will dawn.
There are no more any enemies ; All are our own, our beloved; Both them that bless and them that curse all are friendly to us.
The inward enemy being overcome, all outward foes have vanished away. There is no more enmity. Men and things are in their right places. There is no more strife; No more fighting ; No more warfare.
We behold the fray, but do not engage in it ; We hear the tumult, and we make no sound. But though quiescent, we watch; Though silent, we are not indifferent. Perceiving the Divine Order, we are reconciled to all things; And being so reconciled, we are in perfect peace. Wherefore should we mourn and be sorrowful?
The sphere of controversy is broken : About what should we contend? The world of division is annulled : What have we to defend? Can Truth fail, that we should argue, that we should be anxious and concerned? Because Truth endures for ever, our peace can never fail. The seed fails in its appointed place; The flower appears, and also the fruit in its season; Day warms, and night cools; Light is shed, and rain falls; Snow covers, and frost binds.
Are they enemies? They work together as one. Who, then, shall stir us up to wrath? Who shall draw us into the lists of contention? With them that agree with us we are at peace? And with that oppose us we are also at peace.
Friends are not near, nor enemies far ; Praise and blame are not asunder. Truth draws all things together; It resolves all opposites into one.
Yea, forces that seemed divided are now united ; Things that seemed to contend are now in agreement; And events that seemed adverse are now friendly. How foolish we were in our fear!
How blind in our bigotry! How hateful in our heart! We were as the beasts that rage and kill, Or as the blind beetle that dashes on to its death! All things are in unison ; And fear, and blindness, and hatred are no more. Having departed from the lesser, the Greater is revealed : Having renounced the part, the Whole is received : Having abandoned the imperfect, what remains but the Perfect! Truly all things are reconciled, and peace awaits.
The Door of Truth is open. None hinders, but man holds back. He holds back for a time, and in the hour of ripeness he comesforward.
Whosoever will come, let him come! Let him enter and be glad. All things are now. All Light, all Law, all Truth is now. Time and Eternity are one ; Matter and Spirit are one; Death and Life are one; The blind see not, But they that have eyes know the things which they see. We strive not; We stand apart and are silent. Men hurry to and fro a little while ; A little time they come, and a little time they go : How eager they are I How anxious!
