“Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference:”
King James Version (KJV)

It 's so easy to change the meaning of a sentence or doctrine with just a very slight change or omission, "the faith in " versus "the faith of " It 's a beautiful thing to witness how many of my brothers and or sisters in Christ, have refused to fall for the devil 's trap of believing that the correct translation is "faith in ". It 's just marvelous!!

Most other translations use "faith in Jesus " whereas the KJV uses "faith of Jesus ". These words bring two totally different meanings. "Faith in Jesus " represents what we did or do. We did nothing to deserve the gift of God 's righteousness. It was "the faith OF Jesus " that makes it possible for us to be able to receive this gift of righteousness. It is the righteousness of God unto all and upon all who believe. Unto given to us upon put on us who believes. That righteousness makes us like Christ. We will still sin and will need to repent. But it 's that righteousness that covers us and protects believers of Christ from the flames of hell.

I believe that His righteousness became mine because of Christ, that He is the source of it. My only part and response would just be believing in Him. When I am thinking of His salvation on me, Oh it's all from Him, It's all because of Him. He gave me this salvation and I thank Him,I believed on Him and I am believing in Him.

The faith of Jesus is the righteousness of God. If we believe God, through Jesus Christ, that the Word of God is true, then we are given the power by way of His Spirit to become children of God. The heart has to be converted. Remember, we are saved by Grace through Faith (I believe this is the Faith of Jesus). My faith has no power to save anyone, much less myself. I have to believe God and it will show by what I do. Faith is in Jesus. Christ is everything!! To receive Jesus is to receive His Word because He is the Word. If we don't feed on Jesus, there is no life (eternal). We feed on Jesus by reading and studying His Word and then by putting it into practice, which shows we believe. We pray to God, by way of Jesus with faith, believing that we receive Grace by what we believe. The two main requirements for salvation is to believe and repent. If we don't turn away from sin, then we don't believe and we know what happens to those who continue in sin or those who turn back to sin.
