    I agree with God. The Mercies and beauty of Christ Jesus is the converted man filled with the power of the power of the holy spirit and the word of God becomes righteous through his faith in Christ Jesus and no longer walks in the council of the ungodly. He becomes the righteousness of God. He can no longer dwell with sinners.
