Romans Chapter 1

Author: Romans 1:1 identifies the author of the Book of Romans as the apostle Paul. Romans 16:22 indicates that Paul used a man named Tertius to transcribe his words.

Date of Writing: The Book of Romans was likely written A.D. 56-58.

Purpose of Writing: As with all Paul’s letters to the churches, his purpose in writing was to proclaim the glory of the Lord Jesus Christ by teaching true doctrine and edify and encourage the believers who would receive his letter. Of particular concern to Paul were those to whom this letter was written—those in Rome who were “loved by God and called to be saints” (Romans 1:7). Because he himself was a Roman citizen, he had a unique passion for those in the assembly of believers in Rome. Since he had not, to this point, visited the church in Rome, this letter also served as his introduction to them.


Greeting


Rom 1:1  Paul, a servant of Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle (NOT CALLED TO BE SAVED BUT AS AN APOSTLE AS JUDAS WAS ALSO), separated unto the gospel of God,

Rom 1:2  (Which he had promised afore by his prophets in the holy scriptures,)

Rom 1:3  Concerning his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, which was made of the seed of David according to the flesh;

Rom 1:4  And declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the spirit of HOLINESS, by the resurrection from the dead:

Rom 1:5  By whom we have received grace and apostleship, for OBEDIENCE TO THE FAITH among all nations, for his name:

Rom 1:6  Among whom are ye also the CALLED of Jesus Christ:

Rom 1:7  To all that be in Rome, beloved of God, called to be saints: Grace to you and peace from God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ.
“CALLED” DOES NOT MEAN CHOSEN FOR FINAL SALVATION AS TRUE BELIEVERS WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT CAN AND DO FALL AWAY, IN FACT, THERE IS A GREAT FALLING AWAY GOING NOW BEFORE JESUS’ RETURN AS PROMISEDTHERE MUST BE A FALLING AWAY (FROM FAITH) FIRST BEFORE JESUS RETURNS FOR HIS BRIDE

2nd Thessalonians 2:3 “Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come A FALLING AWAY FIRST, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition”

How can anybody deny the FALLING AWAY as if it isn’t mentioned in the Bible? It’s spelled out in Black and White. It’s in FULL SWING NOW and those who deny it may have already become a part of it. (ONCE SAVED ALWAYS SAVED IS AN ACCURSED DOCTRINE OF DEVILS)

Matthew 24:10-11 “And then shall many BE OFFENDED (fall away), and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. 11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall DECEIVE MANY.”Matthew 11:6 “And blessed is he, whosoever shall not BE OFFENDED (fall away) in me.”


Hebrews 6:4-6 “For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, AND WERE MADE PARTAKERS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT, 5 And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come, 6 If (THERE IS NO “IF” IN THE ORIGINAL TEXT) they shall FALL AWAY, to renew them AGAIN unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God AFRESH, and put HIM to an open shame.” (A COMPLETE AND ENTIRE RENOUNCING OF CHRISTIANITY. GOING BACK TO SIN, FALSE RELIGION, ETC. TOTAL APOSTASY).

1 Timothy 4:1 “Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that IN THE LATTER TIMES some shall DEPART FROM THE FAITH, giving heed to seducing spirits, and DOCTRINES OF DEVILS; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron.”2 Thessalonians 2:1-3 “Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, 2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. 3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a FALLING AWAY first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition”


Longing to Go to Rome

Rom 1:8  First, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for you all, that your faith is spoken of throughout the whole world.

Rom 1:9  For God is my witness, whom I serve with my spirit in the gospel of his Son, that without ceasing I make mention of you always in my prayers;

Rom 1:10  Making request, if by any means now at length I might have a prosperous journey by the will of God to come unto you.

Rom 1:11  For I long to see you, that I may impart unto you some spiritual gift (WISDOM, DOCTRINE, ETC), to the end ye may be established;

Rom 1:12  That is, that I may be comforted together with you by the MUTUAL FAITH both of you and me.

Rom 1:13  Now I WOULD NOT HAVE YOU IGNORANT (PAUL HAD GREAT KNOWLEDGE IN SPIRITUAL THINGS – REMEMBER, THE  NT WAS NOT WRITTEN YET), brethren, that oftentimes I purposed to come unto you, (but was let hitherto,) THAT I MIGHT HAVE SOME FRUIT (OF MY MINISTRY) AMONG YOU ALSO, even as among other Gentiles.

Rom 1:14  I am debtor both to the Greeks, and to the Barbarians (ALL THOSE OUTSIDE OF GREECE); both to the wise, and to the unwise.

Rom 1:15  So, as much as in me is, I am ready to preach the gospel to you that are at Rome also.

The Righteous Shall Live by Faith

Rom 1:16  For I AM NOT ASHAMED OF THE GOSPEL OF CHRIST: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.

Rom 1:17  For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, THE JUST SHALL LIVE BY FAITH.

God’s Wrath on Unrighteousness

GOD HATES THE SIN

Rom 1:18  For THE WRATH OF GOD is revealed from heaven AGAINST ALL UNGODLINESS AND UNRIGHTEOUSNESS OF MEN, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; (WHO ARE WILLFUL SINNERS)

GOD’S WRATH ABIDES ON THE SINNER

John 3:36 “He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not (MEANING DOES NOT OBEY – A SINNER) the Son shall not see life; but the WRATH (ANGER / INDIGNATION) of God abideth on him.”

WRATH DEFINITION G3709 ὀργή orgē (or-gay’) From G3713; properly desire (as a reaching forth or excitement of the mind), that is, (by analogy) violent passion (ire, or [justifiable] abhorrence); by implication punishment: – ANGER, INDIGNATION, VENGEANCE, wrath. Total KJV occurrences: 36

2nd Peter 2:4-6 “For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but CAST THEM DOWN TO HELL, and delivered them into CHAINS OF DARKNESS, to be reserved unto JUDGMENT; 5 And spared not the old world, but saved Noah THE EIGHT PERSON, A PREACHER OF RIGHTEOUSNESS, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly (SINNERS); 6 And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an (ENSAMPLE) unto those that after SHOULD LIVE UNGODLY (IN WILLFUL SIN).”

Jude 1:3 “Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.”

Rom 1:19  Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.

Rom 1:20  For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen (THE CONSCIENCE WE ARE ALL BORN WITH BEARS WITNESS), being understood by the things that are made (THE CREATION ITSELF), even his eternal power and Godhead (AN EXTERNAL FORCE AND THE GODHEAD ITSELF); so that they are without excuse:

CAN’T CLAIM IGNORANCE ON JUDGEMENT DAYActs 17:30-31 “And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but NOW commandeth all men every where to REPENT: 31 Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will JUDGE THE WORLD in RIGHTEOUSNESS  by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead.”

Rom 1:21  Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became VAIN IN THEIR IMAGINATIONS, and THEIR FOOLISH HEART WAS DARKENED.

Rom 1:22  Professing themselves to be wise, THEY BECAME FOOLS, (THEY WENT TO GET THEIR EARS TICKLED AT THE FALSE CHURCH THEY SO LOVE IN THEIR WILLFUL SIN)

Rom 1:23  And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man (THIS TRUTH ALONE BURNS ALL CATHOLICS IN HELL. IN FACT, THAT GOD HATING CULT TOOK THE 2ND COMMANDMENT OUT OF THE BIBLE), and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.

Rom 1:24  Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:

Rom 1:25  Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

Rom 1:26  For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: (VILE HOMOSEXUALITY)

Rom 1:27  And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

Rom 1:28  And even as THEY DID NOT LIKE TO RETAIN GOD IN THEIR KNOWLEDGE, God gave them over to a reprobate mind (A MIND VOID OF JUDGMENT AFTER THEIR FREE WILL REBELLION), to do those things which are not convenient;

Rom 1:29  Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,

Rom 1:30  Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,

Rom 1:31  Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:

Rom 1:32  Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.” (OH THE GREAT MAJORITY OF PROFESSING “CHRISTIANS” FALL IN THIS CATEGORY. THEY “HANG OUT WITH SINNERS”… THEY ARE SILENT IN THE FACE OF SIN…. THEY ALLOW SIN IN THEIR PRESENCE, ETC)

Proverbs 17:15 “He that justifieth the wicked, and he that condemneth the just, even THEY ARE BOTH AN ABOMINATION to the LORD.”

1st John 3:8 “HE THAT COMMITTETH SIN IS OF THE DEVIL; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.”

2nd Corinthians 6:14-15 “Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers (THIS INCLUDES FALSE CHRISTIANS): for what fellowship hath righteousness (SAINTS) with unrighteousness (SINNERS)? and what communion hath light with darkness? 15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?”

Psalm 26:9-10 “Gather not my soul with SINNERS, nor my life with bloody men: 10 In whose hands is mischief, and their right hand is full of bribes.”

2 Timothy 3:1-5 “This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. 2 For men shall be LOVERS OF THEIR OWN SELVES, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, UNHOLY, 3 WITHOUT NATURAL AFFECTION, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent(WITHOUT SELF CONTROL), fierce, despisers of those that are good, 4 Traitors, heady(inconsiderate), highminded(THOSE WHO ARE FULL OF THEMSELVES), lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; 5 HAVING A FORM OF GODLINESS, but DENYING THE POWER THEROF: from such TURN AWAY.”


Romans Chapter 2

God’s Righteous Judgment

Rom 2:1  Therefore thou art inexcusable, O man, whosoever thou art that judgest: for wherein thou judgest another, thou condemnest thyself; for thou that judgest doest the same things. (A HYPOCRITICAL JUDGE – ONE JUDGES ANOTHER AND THEY ARE WORSE THEN THEY. GOD COMMANDS RIGHTEOUS JUDGING)

MATTHEW 7:1-5 COMMANDS A SAINT OF GOD TO JUDGE (LOVE)

Mat 7:1-5 “Judge not, that ye be not judged. 2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. 3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? 4 Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye? 5 Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye (STOP SINNING); and THEN shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote (SIN) out of thy brother’s eye.”

Leviticus 19:17 “Thou shalt not hate thy brother in thine heart: thou shalt in any wise REBUKE THY NEIGHBOUR, and NOT SUFFER SIN UPON HIM.”

Rom 2:2  But we are sure that the judgment of God is according to truth against them which commit such things. (GOD WILL THROW ALL WILLFUL SINNERS INTO THE ETERNAL FIRE)

Rom 2:3  And thinkest thou this, O man, that judgest them which do such things, AND DOEST THE SAME, that thou shalt escape the judgment of God?

Rom 2:4  Or despisest thou the riches of his goodness and forbearance and longsuffering; not knowing that the goodness of God LEADETH THEE TO REPENTANCE?

TRUE REPENTANCE IF TO CONFESS AND FORSAKE ALL WILLFUL SINProverbs 28:13 “He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso CONFESSETH and FORSAKETH them shall have mercy.”Acts 10:34-35 “Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that GOD IS NO RESPECTER OF PERSONS: 35 But in every nation he that feareth him, and WORKETH RIGHTEOUSNESS (DOES NOT WILLFULLY SIN), IS ACCEPTED WITH HIM.”

YOU MUST HUMBLE YOURSELF (STOP SINNING) AND DRAW CLOSE TO GOD


James 4:6-10 “But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God RESISTETH THE PROUD (SINNER), but giveth grace unto the humble. SUBMIT YOURSELVES therefore to God. RESIST THE DEVIL, and he will flee from you. 8 DRAW NIGH (CLOSE) TO GOD, and (THEN) he will DRAW NIGHT TO YOU. CLEANSE YOUR HANDS (STOP SINNING), YE SINNERS; and PURIFY YOUR HEARTS (STOP SINNING), ye double minded. 9 Be AFFLICTED, and MOURN, and WEEP(ALL CONDITIONS): let your laughter be turned to mourning, and your joy to heaviness. 10 HUMBLE YOURSELVES in the sight of the Lord, and(THEN) HE shall lift you up.”

Rom 2:5  But after thy hardness and IMPENITENT HEART (A WILLFUL SINNER AGAINST A HOLY GOD) treasurest up unto thyself wrath against the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God;

Rom 2:6  Who will render to every man ACCORDING TO HIS DEEDS (WORKS):

James 2:17-19 “Even so FAITH, IF IT HATH NOT WORKS, IS DEAD, BEING ALONE. 18 Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works. 19 Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: THE DEVILS ALSO BELIEVE, AND TREMBLE.”

James 2:20-22 “But wilt thou know, O vain man, that FAITH WITHOUT WORKS IS DEAD? 21 Was not ABRAHAM our father JUSTIFIED BY WORKS, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar? 22 Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and BY WORKS WAS FAITH MADE PERFECT?”

WATCH THIS WARNING

1st Peter 4:18 “And if the RIGHTEOUS SCARCELY BE SAVED, WHERE SHALL THE UNGODLY AND SINNER APPEAR?”

1st Corinthians 6:9-10 “Know ye not that the unrighteous shall NOT INHERIT THE KINGDOM OF GOD? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters (SPORTS, “AMERICAN DREAM”, A PARTICULAR COUNTRY, A DENOMINATION, etc), nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind (HOMOSEXUALS/LGBTQXXX), 10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.”

Rom 2:7  To them who by PATIENT CONTINUANCE IN WELL DOING seek for glory and honour and immortality, eternal life:

Rom 2:8  But unto them that are contentious, AND DO NOT OBEY THE TRUTH, BUT OBEY UNRIGHTEOUSNESS (WHO WILLFULLY SIN), indignation and WRATH,

Rom 2:9  Tribulation and ANGUISH, UPON EVERY SOUL THAT DOETH EVIL, of the Jew first, and also of the Gentile;

Rom 2:10  But glory, honour, and peace, TO EVERY MAN THAT WORKETH GOOD to the Jew first, and also to the Gentile:

Rom 2:11  For there is no respect of persons with God. (ALL SIN WILL BE JUDGED WITH NO EXCEPTIONS)

Romans 6:20,22-23 “For when YE WERE THE SERVANTS OF SIN, ye were free from righteousness. 22 But now being made FREE FROM SIN, and become SERVANTS TO GOD, YE HAVE YOUR FRUIT UNTO HOLINESS (BIBLICAL PERFECTION), and THE END (IF YOU ENDURE) everlasting life. 23 For THE WAGES OF SIN IS DEATH; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord (TO THE FAITHFUL – THE OBEDIENT).”


God’s Judgment and the Mosaic (OT Ceremonial) Law (SO MANY WREST THIS TO THEIR DESTRUCTION THINKING IT MEANS THEY CAN CONTINUE IN SIN AND NOT OBEY GOD’S MORAL LAW THAT WAS FROM THE BEGINNING AND WILL NOT PASS AWAY)

John 5:14 “Afterward Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said unto him, Behold, thou art made whole: SIN NO MORE, LEST A WORSE THING COME UPON THEE.”John 8:11 “She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and SIN NO MORE.”


Rom 2:12  For as many as have sinned without (THE WRITTEN) law (GENTILES) shall also perish without law (THEY HAD THEIR GOD GIVEN CONSCIENCE AND ROMANS 1:20 CONFIRMS THAT NATURE ITSELF REVEALS EVEN THE GODHEAD): and as many as have sinned in the law (THE JEWS GIVEN DIVINE REVELATION) shall be judged by the law;

Rom 2:13  (For not the hearers of the law are just before God, but THE DOERS OF THE LAW SHALL BE JUSTIFIED. (HOW MUCH GREATER IS THE ETERNAL PUNISHMENT OF A PERSON WHO CLAIMS TO HAVE THE HOLY SPIRIT AND TRAMPLES THE BLOOD OF JESUS BY WILLFULLY SINNING IN “THOUGHT, WORD AND DEED” AND SO MANY BLASPHEMOUSLY TEACH AND BELIEVE)

Rom 2:14  For when the Gentiles, which have not the law, do by nature the things contained in the law, these, having not the law, are a law unto themselves: (AGAIN, WILL BE JUDGED BY THEIR FREE WILL ACTIONS)

Rom 2:15  Which shew the work of the law written in their hearts, THEIR CONSCIENCE ALSO BEARING WITNESS, and their thoughts the mean while accusing or else excusing one another;)

Rom 2:16  In the day when GOD SHALL JUDGE THE SECRETS OF MEN by Jesus Christ according to my gospel.

Rom 2:17  Behold, thou art called a Jew, and restest in the law, and makest thy boast of God,

Rom 2:18  And knowest his will, and approvest the things that are more excellent, being instructed out of the law; (THEY HAD THE WRITTEN COMMANDS OF GOD)

Proverbs 7:2 “KEEP MY COMMANDMENTS, AND LIVE; and my law as the apple of thine eye.”

Daniel 9:4 “And I prayed unto the LORD my God, and made my confession, and said, O Lord, the great and dreadful God, keeping the covenant and mercy TO THEM THAT LOVE HIM and to them that KEEP HIS COMMANDMENTS”

John 14:15 “IF ye love me, KEEP MY COMMANDMENTS.”

John 15:10 “IF YE KEEP MY COMMANDMENTS, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love.”

John 15:14 “Ye are my friends, IF YE DO WHATSOEVER I COMMAND YOU”

Rom 2:19  And art confident (BECAUSE THEY HAD THE WRITTEN LAW) that thou thyself art a guide of the blind, a light of them which are in darkness, (AN INSTRUCTOR TO THE ONES WITHOUT THE LAW – THE GENTILES)

Rom 2:20  An instructor of the foolish (VOID OF THE WRITTEN LAWS OF GOD), a teacher of babes, which hast the form of knowledge and of the truth in the law.

Rom 2:21  Thou therefore which teachest another, teachest thou not thyself? thou that preachest a man should not steal, dost thou steal?

Rom 2:22  Thou that sayest a man should not commit adultery, dost thou commit adultery? thou that abhorrest idols, dost thou commit sacrilege?

Rom 2:23  Thou that makest thy boast of the law, through breaking the law dishonourest thou God?

Rom 2:24  For the name of God is blasphemed among the Gentiles through you, as it is written.

WOE TO THE SCRIBES AND PHARISEES – HYPOCRITES – THEY PREACHED THE TRUE LAW OF GOD BUT DID NOT LIVE IT

Mat 23:3 All therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, that observe and do; but do not ye after their works: for they say, and do not 4 For they bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, and lay them on men’s shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers.”


Rom 2:25  For circumcision verily profiteth, IF THOU KEEP THE LAW: but if thou be a breaker of the law, thy circumcision is made uncircumcision. (YES, ONE CAN FALL AWAY FROM GOD’S GRACE BY DISOBEDIENCE AND END UP IN HELL, BEING ONCE “SAVED BY GRACE”)

Rom 2:26  Therefore if the uncircumcision KEEP THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF THE LAW (THE MORAL ASPECTS THAT NEVER PASS AWAY), shall not his uncircumcision be counted for circumcision?

Rom 2:27  And shall not uncircumcision which is by nature, if it fulfil the law, judge thee, who by the letter and circumcision dost transgress the law?

Rom 2:28  For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh:

Rom 2:29  But he is a Jew, which is one INWARDLY; and CIRCUMCISION IS THAT OF THE HEART, IN THE SPIRIT (OBEDIENCE), and not in the letter (THE MOSAIC LAW OF THE OT); whose praise is not of men, but of God.”

Mat 23:23 “Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone.”

THE LUKEWARM “CHURCHGOER” THAT LIVES LIKE THE WORLD IN WILLFUL SIN HAS NO LOVE.

Revelation 3:15-16 “I KNOW THY WORKS, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. 16 So then because thou art LUKEWARM, and neither cold nor hot, I will SPUE THEE OUT OF MY MOUTH.”


Romans Chapter 3

God’s Righteousness Upheld

Rom 3:1 “What advantage then hath the Jew? or what profit is there of circumcision?

Rom 2:25  For circumcision verily profiteth, IF THOU KEEP THE LAW: but if thou be a breaker of the law, thy circumcision is made uncircumcision. (YES, ONE CAN FALL AWAY FROM GOD’S GRACE BY DISOBEDIENCE AND END UP IN HELL, BEING ONCE “SAVED BY GRACE”)

Rom 2:26  Therefore if the uncircumcision KEEP THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF THE LAW (THE MORAL ASPECTS THAT NEVER PASS AWAY), shall not his uncircumcision be counted for circumcision?

Rom 3:2  Much every way (THE JEWS): chiefly (FIRST), because that unto them were committed the oracles (COMMANDMENTS) of God.

Rom 3:3  For what if some did not believe? shall their unbelief make the faith of God without effect? (WILL GOD NOT STILL MAKE GOOD ON HIS PROMISES WHO DO BELIEVE)?

Rom 3:4  God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged.

Psalm 2:1-5 “Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing? 2 The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying, 3 Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us. 4 He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision. 5 Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure.”

Psalm 51:4 “Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, and done this evil in thy sight: that thou mightest be justified when thou speakest, and be clear when thou judgest.”

Rom 3:5  But if our unrighteousness (SIN) commend (SHOW FORTH) the righteousness of God, what shall we say? Is God unrighteous who taketh vengeance? (I speak as a man)

Rom 3:6  God forbid: for then how shall God judge the world? (GOD CAN NOT BE UNJUST. HE IS A RIGHTEOUS JUDGE)

Acts 17:30-31 “And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but NOW commandeth all men every where to REPENT: 31 Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will JUDGE THE WORLD in RIGHTEOUSNESS  by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead.”

Rom 3:7  For if the truth of God hath more abounded through my lie unto his glory; why yet am I also judged as a sinner? (A MURDERER, FOR EXAMPLE, DOES NOT HONOR THE LAW OR HELP SOCIETY BY HIS WRETCHED ACTION, JUST THE OPPOSITE. HOWEVER, HIS EXECUTION (JUST PUNISHMENT) SHALL DO HONOR TO THE LAW AND THE JUDGE AND PROMOTE PEACE AND SECURITY BY RESTRAINING OTHERS TO NOT FOLLOW SUCH WICKEDNESS AS THE CONSEQUENCES ARE DIRE)

Isaiah 30:17 “One thousand shall flee at the rebuke of one; at the rebuke of five shall ye flee: till ye be left as a beacon upon the top of a mountain, and as an ensign on an hill.”

1 Timothy 5:20 “THEM THAT SIN REBUKE BEFORE ALL, THAT OTHERS MAY FEAR.”

2 Corinthians 5:11 ”Knowing therefore the terror of the Lord, we persuade men; but we are made manifest unto God; and I trust also are made manifest in your consciences.”

Rom 3:8  And not rather, (as we be slanderously reported, and as some affirm (DOUBTLESS JEWS) that we say,) Let us do evil, that good may come? whose damnation is just. (PAUL VEHEMENTLY DENIES THE LAWFULNESS OF “DOING EVIL”, ANY SIN, “THAT GOOD MAY COME”)

No One Is Righteous

Rom 3:9  What then? are we better than they? (ARE WE JEWS BETTER THEN THE  GENTILES) No, in no wise: for we have before proved both Jews and Gentiles, that they are all under sin; (MEANING THE JEWS HAVE NO ADVANTAGE OVER THE GENTILES IN TERMS OF GETTING TO THE CROSS OF CHRIST, THE PERFECT SIN-OFFERING. THEY HAVE FAILED TO KEEP THE LAW (OF MOSES) AND IF THEY ARE TO BE JUSTIFIED, IT MUST BE IN THE SAME WAY AS THE REST OF THE WORLD)

HOW DOES ONE RECEIVE HIS GRACE? BY THEIR FREE WILL ACTION OF REPENTING FROM SIN AND LIVING A LIFE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS

James 4:6-10 “But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God RESISTETH THE PROUD (SINNER), but giveth grace unto the humble. SUBMIT YOURSELVES therefore to God. RESIST THE DEVIL, and he will flee from you. 8 DRAW NIGH (CLOSE) TO GOD, and (THEN) he will DRAW NIGHT TO YOU. CLEANSE YOUR HANDS (STOP SINNING), YE SINNERS; and PURIFY YOUR HEARTS (STOP SINNING), ye double minded. 9 Be AFFLICTED, and MOURN, and WEEP(ALL CONDITIONS): let your laughter be turned to mourning, and your joy to heaviness. 10 HUMBLE YOURSELVES in the sight of the Lord, and(THEN) HE shall lift you up.”

2nd Corinthians 7:10-11 “For GODLY SORROW worketh REPENTANCE to SALVATION not to be repented of: but THE SORROW OF THE WORLD WORKETH DEATH. 11 For behold this selfsame thing, that ye sorrowed after a godly sort, WHAT CAREFULNESS it wrought in you, yea, what CLEARING OF YOURSELVES, yea, WHAT INDIGNATION, yea, WHAT FEAR, yea, WHAT VEHEMENT DESIRE, yea, WHAT ZEAL, yea, WHAT REVENGE! In all things ye have APPROVED YOURSELVES to be clear in this matter.”

John 15:14 “Ye are my friends, IF YE DO WHATSOEVER I COMMAND YOU.”

Rom 3:10  As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one: (NOW WE KNOW THAT THIS SAYS “THERE IS NONE RIGHTEOUS, NO, NOT ONE”. HOWEVER, LET’S READ UNTIL VERSE 18, YOU WILL SEE THAT HE’S NOT REFERRING TO THE SAINTS OF GOD, RATHER, TO THE VILE AND THE WICKED. 1ST, LET’S READ BELOW AND YOU WILL SEE IN THIS PSALM IT SAYS “EVERY ONE OF THEM IS GONE BACK, OF COURSE MEANING INTO SIN. APOSTASY)

Psa 53:1  To the chief Musician upon Mahalath, Maschil, A Psalm of David. The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. Corrupt are they, and HAVE DONE abominable iniquity (VILE SINNERS): there is none that doeth good. Psa 53:2  God looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, that did seek God. Psa 53:3  EVERY ONE OF THEM IS GONE BACK: they are altogether BECOME FILTHY; there is none that doeth good, no, not one. Psa 53:4  Have the workers of iniquity (WILLFUL SINNERS) no knowledge? who eat up my people as they eat bread: THEY HAVE NOT CALLED UPON GOD.

Rom 3:11  There is none that understandeth, THERE IS NONE THAT SEEKETH AFTER GOD. ( TO DO HIS WILL – Proverbs 7:2 “KEEP MY COMMANDMENTS, AND LIVE; and my law as the apple of thine eye.”)

Rom 3:12  They are ALL GONE OUT OF THE WAY (OF GOD’S RIGHTEOUS NARROW PATH), they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.

Rom 3:13  Their throat is an open sepulchre; with their tongues they have used deceit; the poison of asps is under their lips:

Rom 3:14  Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness:

Rom 3:15  Their feet are swift to shed blood:

Rom 3:16  Destruction and misery are in their ways:

Rom 3:17  And the way of peace have they not known:

Rom 3:18  There is no fear of God before their eyes.

NOW YOU UNDERSTAND “NONE GOOD” IN CONTEXT… SPEAKING ABOUT SINNERS… AND ALL SINNERS WILL BE DESTROYED JUST LIKE IN TIMES PAST (NOAH, LOT, ETC)

Luke 17:26-30 “And as it was in the days of Noe (NOAH), so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. 27 They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and DESTROYED THEM ALL. 28 Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; 29 But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and DESTROYED THEM ALL. 30 EVEN THUS SHALL IT BE IN THE DAY WHEN THE SON OF MAN IS REVEALED (THE SECOND AND FINAL COMING).”

Philippians 3:18-20 “Brethren, be followers together of me, and mark them which walk so as ye have us for an ensample. 18 (For MANY WALK, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they ARE THE ENEMIES OF THE CROSS OF CHRIST: 19 WHOSE END IS DESTRUCTION, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.) 20 For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ.”

Rom 3:19  Now we know that what things soever the (MORAL) law saith, it saith to them who are under the law (JEWS – WRITTEN LAW): that every mouth may be stopped (THOSE TRYING TO BE SELF-JUSTIFIED), and all the world (JEWS & GENTILES) may become guilty before God.

Rom 3:20  Therefore by the deeds of the law (THE SCRIPTURES) there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin.

The Righteousness of God Through Faith

Rom 3:21  But now the righteousness of God without the (MOSAIC) law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets;

Rom 3:22  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:

Rom 3:23  For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

Rom 3:24  Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:

Rom 3:25  Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God;

Rom 3:26  To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.

NOW THIS MAKES SENSE. ONE RECEIVED GOD’S GRACE BY GOING TO THE PERFECT SIN-OFFERING (THE CROSS)

Rom 3:27  Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? of works? Nay: but by THE LAW OF FAITH.

Rom 3:28  Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the (MOSAIC) law.

Rom 3:29  Is he the God of the Jews only? is he not also of the Gentiles? Yes, of the Gentiles also:

Rom 3:30  Seeing it is one God, which shall justify the circumcision by faith, and uncircumcision through faith.

Rom 3:31  Do we then make void the law through faith (DO WE DESTROY IT’S MORAL OBLIGATION)? GOD FORBID: yea, WE ESTABLISH THE LAW.” (THE MORAL LAW IS CONFIRMED AND ONE MUST BE OBEDIENT TO IT)

Rom 6:4-14 “Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so WE SHOULD ALSO WALK IN NEWNESS OF LIFE.

Rom 6:5  For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, WE SHALL ALSO BE IN THE LIKENESS OF HIS RESURRECTION:

Rom 6:6  Knowing this, that OUR OLD (SINFUL) MAN IS CRUCIFIED WITH HIM, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth (FROM HERE ON OUT) WE SHOULD NOT SERVE SIN.

Rom 6:7  For he that is dead is FREED FROM SIN (AND IT’S GRASP).

Rom 6:8  Now IF we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him:

Rom 6:9  Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him.

Rom 6:10  For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God.

Rom 6:11  Likewise reckon YE ALSO YOURSELVES TO BE DEAD INDEED UNTO SIN, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Rom 6:12  LET NO SIN THEREFORE REIGN IN YOUR MORTAL BODY, THAT YE SHALL OBEY IT IN THE LUSTS THEREOF.

Rom 6:13  NEITHER YEILD YOUR MEMBERS AS INSTRUMENTS OF UNRIGHTEOUSNESS UNTO SIN: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and YOUR MEMBERS AS INSTRUMENTS OF RIGHTEOUSNESS unto God.
Rom 6:14  For SIN SHALL HAVE NO DOMINION OVER YOU: for ye are not under the (MOSAIC) law, but under grace.”

HOW TO RECEIVE GRACE?

2nd Corinthians 6:1-10 “We then, as WORKERS TOGETHER WITH HIM, beseech you also that YE RECEIVE NOT THE GRACE OF GOD IN VAIN. 2 (For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, NOW IS THE ACCEPTED TIME; behold, NOW IS THE DAY OF SALVATION.) 3 GIVING NO OFFENSE IN ANYTHING, that the ministry be not blamed: 4 But in all things APPROVING OURSELVES as the ministers of God, in much patience, in afflictions, in necessities, in distresses, 5 In stripes, in imprisonments, in tumults, in labours, in watchings, in fastings; 6 By PURENESS, by knowledge, by longsuffering, by kindness, by the Holy Ghost, by love unfeigned, 7 By the word of truth, by the power of God, by the armour of RIGHTEOUSNESS  on the right hand and on the left, 8 By honour and dishonour, by evil report and good report: as deceivers, and yet true; 9 As unknown, and yet well known; as dying, and, behold, we live; as chastened, and not killed; 10 As SORROWFUL, yet ALWAY REJOICING; as POOR, YET MAKING MANY RICH; as HAVING NOTHING, and YET POSSESSING ALL THINGS.”

Hebrews 12:14-17 “Follow peace with all men, AND HOLINESS, WITHOUT which NO MAN SHALL SEE THE LORD: 15 LOOKING DILIGENTLY LEST ANY MAN FAIL THE GRACE OF GOD (YES, ONE CAN LOSE THE GRACE OF GOD ONCE THEY HAD IT AND END UP IN HELLFIRE FOREVER); lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby MANY BE DEFILED; 16 Lest there be any fornicator, or profane person, as Esau, who for one morsel of meat sold his birthright. 17 For ye know how that afterward, when HE WOULD HAVE INHERITED THE BLESSING, he was rejected: for HE FOUND NO PLACE OF REPENTANCE, THOUGH HE SOUGHT IT CAREFULLY WITH TEARS.”

Justification by Faith – Works – Election? Romans 3:19-31 Explained


Romans Chapter 4

Abraham Justified by Faith

Rom 4:1  What shall we say then that Abraham our father, as pertaining to the flesh, hath found?
Rom 4:2  For if Abraham were justified by works (ALLUDING TO THE MOSAIC/CEREMONIAL LAW), he hath whereof to glory (MEANING ONE CAN WORK OUT THEIR OWN SALVATION WITHOUT THE GLORY GOING TO GOD AND WITHOUT FEAR AND TREMBLING, AS COMMANDED); but not before God.

MAN HAS HIS PART HOWEVER – THE LAW OF FAITH (THE MORAL LAW WHICH STANDS FROM THE BEGINNING)

Philippians 2:12 “Wherefore, my beloved, as YE HAVE ALWAYS OBEYED, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, WORK OUT YOUR OWN SALVATION with FEAR and TREMBLING.”

Luke 9:23-25 “And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, LET HIM DENY HIMSELF, and TAKE UP HIS CROSS DAILY, and FOLLOW ME (ALL ACTIONS ONE MUST DO TO ABIDE IN THE VINE). 24 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever will lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it. 25 For what is a man advantaged, if he gain the whole world, and lose himself, or be cast away?”YOU MUST FORSAKE ALL – YOUR EXCUSES WILL NOT WORK ON JUDGEMENT DAYLuke 14:26-27 “If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple. 27 And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, CANNOT BE MY DISCIPLE.”Luke 14:33 “So likewise, whosoever he be of you that FORSAKETH NOT ALL THAT HE HATH, he CANNOT BE MY DISCIPLE.”

Rom 3:27 “Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? of works? ((ALLUDING TO THE MOSAIC/CEREMONIAL LAW) Nay: but by the law of faith.”

Rom 4:3  For what saith the scripture? Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness.

WATCH VERY CLOSELY – THE FOLLOWING IS INSPIRED SCRIPTURE, AS THE ABOVE IS, AND WILL PUT TO REST THE HERESY OF THOSE WHO SAY “NO MORAL WORKS” OR “JESUS DID IT ALL INCLUDING OBEYING FOR ME”)

James 2:14-26 “What doth it profit, my brethren, THOUGH A MAN SAY HE HATH FAITH, AND HAVE NOT WORKS? CAN FAITH SAVE HIM? 15 If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food, 16 And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit? 17 Even so FAITH, IF IT HATH NOT WORKS, IS DEAD, BEING ALONE. 18 Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works. “Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble. 20 But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead? 21 WAS NOT ABRAHAM OUR FATHER JUSTIFIED BY WORKS, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar? 22 Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and BY WORKS WAS FAITH MADE PERFECT? 23 And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed (OBEYED) God, and (THEN) it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God. 24  Ye see then how that BY WORKS A MAN IS JUSTIFIED, AND NOT BY (LUKEWARM) FAITH ONLY 25 Likewise also WAS NOT RAHAB THE HARLOT JUSTIFIED BY WORKS, when she had received the messengers, and had sent them out another way? 26  For as the body without the spirit is dead, so FAITH WITHOUT WORKS IS DEAD ALSO.”

Acts 26:20 “But shewed first unto them of Damascus, and at Jerusalem, and throughout all the coasts of Judaea, and then to the Gentiles, that they should repent and turn to God, and DO WORKS MEET (WORTHY) for REPENTANCE.”

Proverbs 28:13 “He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso CONFESSETH and FORSAKETH them shall have mercy.”

Acts 10:34-35 “Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that GOD IS NO RESPECTER OF PERSONS: 35 But in every nation he that feareth him, and WORKETH RIGHTEOUSNESS (LIVE HOLY / OBEDIENT TO THE MORAL LAW OF GOD), IS ACCEPTED WITH HIM.”

1Pe 1:15-16 “But as he which hath called you is holy, so BE YE HOLY IN ALL MANNER OF CONVERSATION; 16 Because it is written, BE YE HOLY; FOR I AM HOLY.”

G40 ἅγιος hagios (hag’-ee-os) From ἅγος hagos (an awful thing) compare G53, [H2282]; sacred (physically pure, MORALLY BLAMELESS or religious, ceremonially consecrated): – (most) holy (one, thing), saint. Total KJV occurrences: 229

Hebrews 5:9 “And being made perfect, HE (JESUS) became the author of eternal salvation UNTO ALL THEM THAT OBEY HIM.”

THIS IS JESUS SPEAKING – ARE YOU LISTENING OR DO YOU BELIEVE YOU ARE “COVERED” IN YOUR WRETCHED WILLFUL SIN??

Matthew 5:48 “Be ye therefore PERFECT, EVEN AS YOUR FATHER which is in heaven is PERFECT.”

1st John 2:3-6 “And hereby we do know that we know him, IF WE KEEP HIS COMMANDMENTS. 4  He that saith, I know him, AND KEEPETH NOT HIS COMMANDMENTS (MORAL LAW) , IS A LIAR, and the truth is not in him. 5 But WHOSO KEEPETH THE WORD, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him. 6 He that saith he abideth in HIM (JESUS) ought HIMSELF also so to walk, even as he (JESUS) walked.”

1st John 3:3-10 “And every man that hath this hope in him PURIFIETH HIMSELF, even as HE (JESUS) is pure.4 WHOSOEVER COMMITTETH SIN TRANSGRESSED THE (MORAL) LAW: for sin is the transgression of the law. 5 And ye know that he was manifested to take away our sins; and in him is no sin. 6 Whosoever abideth in him SINNETH NOT: WHOSOEVER SINNETH hath not seen him, neither known him. 7 Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous. 8 HE THAT COMMITTETH SIN IS OF THE DEVIL; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.9 WHOSOEVER IS BORN OF GOD DOTH NOT COMMIT SIN; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. 10 In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: WHOSOEVER DOETH NOT RIGHTEOUSNESS IS NOT OF GOD, neither he that loveth not his brother.”

1st John 5:18-21 “We know that whosoever is born of God SINNETH NOT; but he that is begotten of God KEEPETH HIMSELF, and that wicked one toucheth him not. 19 And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness. 20 And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life. 21 Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen.”

Rom 4:4  Now to him that worketh is the reward not reckoned of grace, but of debt.

Rom 4:5  But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness.

ONE HAS TO READ JUST A FEW VERSES PAST “JOHN 3:16” TO GET THE ANSWER TO WHAT BELIEVE (TO HAVE FAITH) IS

John 3:18-21 “He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not IS CONDEMNED ALREADY, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. 19 And this is the condemnation, that light (JESUS) is come into the world, and men loved darkness (SIN) rather than light (JESUS), because THEIR DEEDS WERE EVIL – THEY WILLFULLY SIN AGAINST A HOLY GOD). 21 For EVERY ONE THAT DOETH EVIL (SINS) HATETH the light (JESUS), neither cometh to the light, lest HIS DEEDS should be reproved (THEY LOVE THEIR SIN MORE THAN JESUS). 21 But he that DOETH TRUTH (DOES NOT SIN) cometh to the light (COMES TO JESUS), that HIS DEEDS MAY BE MANIFEST, that they are wrought (PERFORMED ACCORDING TO THE WILL AND) in God.”


Rom 4:6  Even as David also describeth the blessedness of the man, unto whom God imputeth righteousness without works, (MEANING PAST WORKS TO ATONE FOR SIN – FAITH (OBEDIENCE) IN GOD ATONES FOR PAST SIN AND THOSE WHO “ENDURE ‘TIL THE END SHALL BE SAVED” – MATTHEW 10:22)

KING DAVID CLEARLY STATES: Psalms 26:9 “GATHER NOT MY SOUL WITH SINNERS (UNFAITHFUL MEN), nor my life with bloody men”

Rom 4:7  Saying, Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered.

WHO RECEIVES MERCY?

Pro 28:13 “He that covereth (DOES NOT ACKNOWLEDGE) his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth (WITH A CONTRITE AND BROKEN HEART IN GODLY SORROW) AND FORSAKETH THEM shall have mercy.” (GOD WILL NEVER ADMIT A SINFUL, UNHUMBLE SOUL, INTO HIS KINGDOM)

RIGHTEOUS WORKS ALONE DO NOT ATONE FOR SINS – ONE NEEDS THE PERFECT, SPOTLESS SIN-OFFERING (JESUS). WHEN I UNDERSTOOD THAT “BELIEVETH” AND “FAITH” MEANS A WORKING FAITH, A CONSTANT OBEDIENCE TO KING JESUS AS ABRAHAM HAD AS WE READ IN JAMES ABOVE AND NOT A SUPERFICIAL FAITH, THIS ALL MADE SENSE.

What Jesus did on the Cross was NOT take anyone’s place, BUT Provide Himself as A SIN OFFERING:

(Hebrews 9:14 “How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit OFFERED HIMSELF without spot to God, PURGE YOUR CONSCIENCE FROM DEAD WORKS to serve the living God?” to ransom Man and turn him FROM DARKNESS to Light, from the power of Satan to God”

Acts 26:18 “To open their eyes, and TO TURN THEM FROM DARKNESS TO LIGHT, and from the power of (SIN) Satan unto God, that (THEN) they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me.”

JESUS CLEANSES FROM “SINS THAT ARE PAST”

Romans 3:25 “Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his(JESUS’) blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of SINS THAT ARE PAST, through the forbearance of God”

YOU ARE PURGED FROM OLD SINS (NEVER CURRENT OR FUTURE)!

2nd Peter 1:9 “But he that LACKETH these things is BLIND, and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that he was PURGED FROM HIS OLD SINS.”


Ephesians 5:2 “And WALK IN LOVE, AS CHRIST ALSO hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a SACRIFICE to God for a sweetsmelling savour.”Ephesians 5:8 “For ye WERE (PAST TENSE) sometimes darkness, BUT NOT are ye light in the Lord: WALK AS CHILDREN OF LIGHT:”


Rom 4:8  Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not impute sin. (DOES NOT CHARGE HIM FOR PAST SINS BEFORE REPENTANCE)

Rom 4:9  Cometh this blessedness then upon the circumcision only, or upon the uncircumcision also? for we say that faith was reckoned to Abraham for righteousness. (ABRAHAM’S JUSTIFICATION (BY FAITH / MORAL WORKS AS WE READ IN JAMES ABOVE) HAPPENED LONG BEFORE HE WAS CIRCUMCISED WE HE COULD HAVE NO DEPENDENCE ON THAT RIGHT ANYWAY). HE WORKED RIGHTEOUSNESS (OBEYED GOD) BEFORE HE WAS CIRCUMCISE. I PRAY YOU NOW UNDERSTAND WHAT JUSTIFICATION BY FAITH NOW MEANS AND NOT OF WORKS (OF THE MOSAIC /CEREMONIAL  LAW. THIS MODEL OF JUSTIFICATION BY FAITH AND IT’S 1S PUBLIC EXAMPLE ARE AVAILABLE TO ALL WHO BELIEVE).

DO YOU HAVE FAITH? ONLY IF YOU ARE A FRIEND OF JESUS.

John 15:14 “Ye are my friends, IF YE DO WHATSOEVER I COMMAND YOU.”

Rom 4:10  How was it then reckoned? when he was in circumcision, or in uncircumcision? Not in circumcision, but in uncircumcision.

Rom 4:11  And he received the sign of circumcision, a seal of the righteousness of the faith which he had yet being uncircumcised: that he might be the father of all them that believe, though they be not circumcised; that righteousness might be imputed unto them also:

Rom 4:12  And the father of circumcision to them who are not of the circumcision only, but who also walk in the steps of that faith of our father Abraham, which he had being yet uncircumcised.

The Righteous Shall Live by Faith

Gal 3:10  For as many as are of the works of the (MOSAIC) law are under the curse (LAW KEEPING jEWS & JUDIAZERS ARE CURSED): for it is written, Cursed is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them.Gal 3:11  But that no man is justified by the (MOSAIC) law in the sight of God, it is evident: for, The just shall live by faith.Gal 3:12  And the (MOSAIC) law is not of faith: but, The man that DOETH THEM shall live in them.Gal 3:13  CHRIST HATH REDEEMED us from the curse of the (MOSAIC) law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree:Gal 3:14  That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we MIGHT receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.

ABRAHAM HAD TO KEEP THE COVENANT BY BEING PERFECT – RIGHTEOUS – OBEDIENT – MORAL LAW WORKS

Gen 17:1 “And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, the LORD appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I am the Almighty God; WALK BEFORE ME (FREE WILL ACTION), and BE THOU PERFECT. Gen 17:2  And (THEN) I will make my covenant between me and thee, and will multiply thee exceedingly. Gen 17:3  And Abram fell on his face: and God talked with him, saying, Gen 17:4  As for me, behold, my covenant is with thee (ABRAHAM IS PROMISING AND DISPLAYING OBEDIENCE), and thou shalt be a father of many nations.”IF ABRAHAM DID NOT KEEP HIS SIDE OF THE COVENANT, IT WOULD HAVE BEEN NULL AND VOID!Gen 17:9 “And God said unto Abraham, THOU SHALT KEEP MY COVENANT therefore, thou, and thy seed after thee in their generations. Gen 17:10  This is my covenant, WHICH YE SHALL KEEP, BETWEEN ME AND YOU AND THY SEED AFTER THEE; Every man child among you shall be circumcised.”WHO ARE ABRAHAM’S SEED?Gal 3:23 “But before faith came, we were kept under the (MOSAIC) law, shut up unto the faith which should afterwards be revealed. Gal 3:24  Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith. Gal 3:25  But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster. Gal 3:26  For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. Gal 3:27  For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ HAVE PUT ON CHRIST. (HAVE PUT ON HIS CHARACTERISTICS, “WALK AS HE WALKED” 1ST JOHN 2:6)

Gal 3:28  There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. Gal 3:29  And IF YE BE CHRIST’S, THEN are ye ABRAHAM’S SEED, and heirs according to the promise.”


The Promise Realized Through Faith

Rom 4:13  For the promise, that he should be the heir of the world, was not to Abraham, or to his seed, through the law (OF MOSES), but through the righteousness of faith.

Rom 4:14  For if they which are of the law be heirs, faith is made void, and the promise made of none effect:

Rom 4:15  Because the law workethwrath (PUNISHMENT FOR THE DISOBEDIENT): for where no law is, there is no transgression. (NO SPEED LIMIT, NO LAW COMES DOWN ON YOU)

Rom 4:16  Therefore it is of faith, that it might be BY GRACE; to the end the promise might be sure to all the seed; not to that only which is of the law, but to that also which is of the faith of Abraham; who is the father of us all,

HOW DOES ONE STAY IN THE GRACE OF GOD?

Titus 2:11-15 “For the grace of God that bringeth salvation HATH APPEARED TO ALL MEN, 12 Teaching us that, DENYING UNGODLINESS and WORLDLY LUSTS, we should LIVE SOBERLY, RIGHTEOUSLY, and GODLY, IN THIS PRESENT WORLD; 13 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; 14 Who gave himself for us, that HE MIGHT REDEEM US FROM ALL INIQUITY (SIN), and purify unto himself a peculiar people, ZEALOUS OF GOOD WORKS. 15 These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no man despise thee.”

IF YOU DON’T STAY IN HIS GRACE, YOU LOST IT! YES, ONE CAN “FAIL THE GRACE OF GOD”.


Hebrews 12:14-17 “Follow peace with all men, AND HOLINESS, WITHOUT which NO MAN SHALL SEE THE LORD: 15 LOOKING DILIGENTLY LEST ANY MAN FAIL THE GRACE OF GOD (YES, ONE CAN LOSE THE GRACE OF GOD ONCE THEY HAD IT AND END UP IN HELLFIRE FOREVER); lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby MANY BE DEFILED; 16 Lest there be any fornicator, or profane person, as Esau, who for one morsel of meat sold his birthright. 17 For ye know how that afterward, when HE WOULD HAVE INHERITED THE BLESSING, he was rejected: for HE FOUND NO PLACE OF REPENTANCE, THOUGH HE SOUGHT IT CAREFULLY WITH TEARS.”


Rom 4:17  (As it is written, I have made thee a father of many nations,) before him whom he believed, even God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were.

Rom 4:18  Who against hope believed in hope, that he might become the father of many nations, according to that which was spoken, So shall thy seed be. (Gen 15:6 “And he believed in the LORD; and he counted it to him for righteousness.)

Rom 4:19  And BEING NOT WEAK IN FAITH (HAVING STRONG, OBEDIENT, SACRIFICIAL, FAITH), he considered not his own body now dead, when he was about an hundred years old (HE BELIEVE THAT “ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE WITH GOD), neither yet the deadness of Sara’s womb: (PAST THE AGE TO GIVE BIRTH)

Rom 4:20  He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God; (ABLE TO MAKE GOOD IN KEEPING HIS PART OF THE COVENANT OF FAITH WITH GOD)

Rom 4:21  And BEING FULLY PERSUADED that, what he had promised (AGAINST ALL PROBABILITY), he was able also to perform. (NO DIFFICULTIES SHOOK HIM)

Rom 4:22  And therefore it was imputed to him for righteousness. (Romans 3:25 “Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his(JESUS’) blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of SINS THAT ARE PAST, through the forbearance of God”)

Rom 4:23  Now it was not written for his sake alone, that it was imputed to him;

Rom 4:24  But for us also, to whom it shall be imputed, if we believe on him that raised up Jesus our Lord from the dead;

Rom 4:25  Who was delivered for our offences, and was raised again for our justification.”


Romans Chapter 5

Peace with God Through Faith

Rom 5:1  Therefore being justified by faith (TRUE WORKING FAITH), (THEN) we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:

Rom 5:2  By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.

Rom 5:3  And not only so, but WE GLORY IN TRIBULATIONS also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience;

Rom 5:4  And patience, experience; and experience, hope:

Rom 5:5  And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.

Rom 5:6  For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.

Rom 5:7  For scarcely for a righteous man (A MAN LIVING HOLY AND BIBLICAL PERFECT) will one die: yet peradventure (SCARCELY) for a good man some would even dare to die.

Rom 5:8  But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners (DISOBEDIENT ENEMIES OF THE CROSS), Christ died for us. (HE BECAME THE PERFECT SIN-OFFERING)

Rom 5:9  Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.

Rom 5:10  For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.

Rom 5:11  And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement.

WHO RECEIVED “THE ATONEMENT”? JESUS CLEANSES FROM “SINS THAT ARE PAST”:

Romans 3:25 “Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his(JESUS’) blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of SINS THAT ARE PAST, through the forbearance of God”


YOU ARE PURGED FROM OLD SINS (NEVER CURRENT OR FUTURE)2nd Peter 1:9 “But he that LACKETH these things is BLIND, and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that he was PURGED FROM HIS OLD SINS.”

Death in Adam, Life in Christ

Rom 5:12  Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned: (ALTHOUGH LUCIFER IS THE AUTHOR OF SIN, ADAM (“ONE MAN” REPRESENTING MANKIND) BROUGHT SIN INTO THIS WORLD AND ALL HUMANS HAVE A GREAT ATTRACTION TO IT (UNTIL THEY BECOME BORN-AGAIN) FROM AN EARLY AGE IS OVERWHELMING AND IMPOSSIBLE TO OVERCOME LEST YOU TRULY REPENT AND RECEIVE THE HOLY SPIRIT TO BE FREED FROM SIN AND IT’S GRIP)

ONE SINS FROM THEIR YOUTH – THEY ARE NOT BORN SINNERS AS MANY CLAM TO THEIR DAMNATION


Genesis 8:21 “And the LORD smelled a sweet savour; and the LORD said in his heart, I will not again curse the ground any more for man’s sake; for the imagination of man’s heart is evil FROM HIS YOUTH; neither will I again smite any more every thing living, as I have done.

Psalm 25:7 “Remember not the SINS OF MY YOUTH, nor my transgressions: according to thy mercy remember thou me for thy goodness’ sake, O LORD.”

Jeremiah 22:21 “I spake unto thee in thy prosperity; but thou saidst, I will not hear. This hath been thy manner FROM THY YOUTH, that thou obeyedst not my voice.”

Jeremiah 32:30 “For the children of Israel and the children of Judah have only done evil before me FROM THEIR YOUTH: for the children of Israel have only provoked me to anger with the work of their hands, saith the LORD.”

Rom 5:13  (For until the law sin was in the world: but sin is not imputed when there is no law.  (“There must therefore have been a law during that period, because sin was then imputed”; as is now to be shown.)

Rom 5:14  Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses (PEOPLE DIED NATURAL DEATHS FROM ADAM’S TRANSGRESSION), even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam’s transgression, who is the figure of him that was to come. (ADAM CROSSED A SPECIFICALLY REVEALED LAW FROM GOD, THE ONES TO FOLLOW, UNTIL MOSES WHO WAS GIVEN SPECIFIC COMMANDMENTS WERE FOLLOWING THE LAWS OF NATURE OR TRADITION)

Sin was in the world from Adam to Moses but the Mosaic law was not accounted to them. But, because all sinned (Romans 3:23) all die spiritually. They all died physically because they no longer had access to the tree of life. Do you remember the two books where the tree of life is mentioned? Death is the consequence of sin: Romans 6:23 “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”All Have sinned: Romans 3:23 “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God”We agree that all men have sinned and will do so until the New Heaven & New earth is established. But, it is not because God has made men sinners, but because every human in the flesh has rebelled against their Creator, separated from Him in rebellion.All humans have sinned of their own free-will choice. God did not supernaturally change man when Eve and Adam sinned. In Genesis 4 we see God talking to Cain telling him that sin was at his door and he should rule over it. Sin is breaking God’s law. 1st John 3:4 states people die spiritually when they sin against God (break His moral law) and are separated from Him. Isaiah 59:1-2 states that He won’t even hear the prayer of willful sinners. This is confirmed in John 9:31 as well. Because access to the tree of Life is removed from them (sinners) they will continue to live and die in their flesh because they sinned, not because it was “inherited”. We see the Tree of Life show up again in the book of Revelation. We do know that they did not immediately die physically when they sinned so this must be spiritual death, not physical…Where in scripture does it say Jesus is our righteousness? Or He obeyed for us? It’s about our obedience (KEEPING OUT PART OF THE COVENANT) to HIS calling and ordinances (the moral law which was from the beginning). He who does what is right (“strive unto holiness” and “go an sin no more”) is declared righteous. Those who don’t obey Him and live for the flesh are the unrighteousness ones (1st John 3-7).

Righteousness: ‘dikaiosyneThe Condition of acceptance to God, integrity, virtue, purity of life, rightness, a state of approval by God.

Faith is revealed in righteousness, Romans 1:17, because faith “works by love and purifies the heart by Obedience to the truth” Galatians 5:6, 1st Peter 1:22. John 3:7 Clarifies one must be born-again and 1st John 3:7 states “Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous.” Virtue and purity CANNOT be transferred. No one can do what is right for you or in your place. To be pure as He is pure, you DO what He did, OBEY.

1st John 2:6 “He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.” 1st John 3:3 clearly explains what YOU must do… “And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure.”That’s the exceeding righteousness Christ said you require to enter His Kingdom (working with the Holy Spirit of course).

Matthew 5:20 “For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.” If Trusting in His virtue and purity is enough for us to be “declared Righteous” regardless of our obedience, WHY didn’t He say so? The deceived pundits keep telling people that no one can be righteous (Rom 3:10) because all have sinned. (Rom 3:23) What they are really saying is this:    No one can do anything right (live righteous and biblically perfect as commanded)    All are born morally depraved sinful wretches and can’t turn on their own free-will to true repentance without God doing it for them (as in forcing them to repent)    If they could do anything right (as righteousness) they could save self and would not’t need God (THE STRAW MAN).It’s a multiple layered deception of immense proportion. Under it ANY Suggestion that man can do something right in the sight of God is considered demonic heresy. Consequently, most people who profess Christ are in a stalemate between knowing they should do what is right but being told they CAN’T do it and it has no merit anyway toward the outcome of their salvation. Yet, the Bible constantly says that a person MUST Produce DEEDS WORTHY of their faith or they will NEVER enter the Kingdom.1 Co 15:21 “For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead.”1 Co 15:22 “For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.”

Rom 5:15  But not as the offence, so also is the free gift. For if through the offence of one many be dead, much more the grace of God, and the gift by grace, which is by one man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many.  (PAUL IS DESCRIBING THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ADAM & CHRIST. HE WHO FROM SIN CAME, ADAM, AND HE WHO RIGHTEOUSNESS CAME, THE “FREE GIFT” DIFFER GREATLY IN POWER)

Rom 5:16  And not as it was by one that sinned, so is the gift (AGAIN THE CONTRACT): for the judgment was by one to condemnation, but the free gift is of many offences unto justification. (JESUS TAKES AWAY THE SINS OF THE WORLD – NOT ONLY FOR THE JEWS BUT THE ENTIRE WORLD – OF COURSE AVAILABLE TO THOSE WHO TRULY REPENT AND PUT THEIR TRUST IN HIM BY OBEDIENCE. THIS IS YET ANOTHER VERSE THAT DESTROYS THE WICKED CULT OF CALVINISM / REFORMED THEOLOGY)

Rom 5:17  For if by one man’s offence death reigned by one (PEOPLE DIED); much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.)

Rom 5:18  Therefore as by the offence of one judgment (DEATH) came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life.

(The sin of one man involved people in ruin; the obedience unto death of the other Philippians 2:8 restored them to the favor of God. Philippians 2:8 “And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.”

Rom 5:19  For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous. (Sinners = those who deserve to be punished. It absolutely not mean one is condemned for the sin of another human. Only those who violate the moral Law of God are sinners, and “all have sinned” so they need a Saviour (Jesus). There is never an innocent person that is condemned for the crimes of another. Of course a child suffers the consequences of an alcoholic parent and etc but are not to blame for those transgressions of their sinful parent(s), for example. The consequences of the crimes of a murderer, a drunkard, a liar, etc surely may affect them negatively, but this does not prove they are at blame. None are condemned who do not deserve to be condemned. All who sink to hell are sinners.

YOU ARE WHAT YOU DO AND WILL BE JUDGED
ACCORDINGLY

Revelation 22:11 “He that is UNJUST, LET HIM BE UNJUST STILL: and he which is FILTHY, LET HIM BE FILTHY STILL: and he that is RIGHTEOUS, LET HIM BE RIGHTEOUS STILL: and he that is HOLY, LET HIM BE HOLY STILL”

IF YOU ARE “HATED” AND “ENDURE TIL THE END” “FEARING GOD” WHILE “KEEPING HIS COMMANDMENTS” YOU WILL FIND LIFE ETERNAL

Matthew 10:22 “And YE SHALL BE HATED OF ALL MEN for my name’s sake: but he that ENDURETH TO THE END shall be SAVED.”

Ecclesiastes 12:13-14 “Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: FEAR GOD, AND KEEP HIS COMMANDMENTS: for THIS IS THE WHOLE DUTY OF MAN. 14 For God shall bring every work into judgment, with EVERY SECRET THING, whether it be good (RIGHTEOUSNESS UNTO ETERNAL LIFE), or whether it be evil (SIN UNTO DEATH).”

Job 28:28 “And unto man he said, Behold, the FEAR OF THE LORD, THAT IS WISDOM; and to DEPART FROM EVIL (WILLFUL SIN) is understanding.”

Revelation 16:15 “Behold, I come as a thief. BLESSED IS HE THAT WATCHETH, and KEEPETH HIS GARMENTS, LEST HE WALK NAKED, and SEE HIS SHAME.”

Revelation 21:24 “AND ALL THE NATIONS OF THEM WHICH ARE SAVED SHALL WALK IN THE LIGHT OF IT: and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honour into it.”

Rom 5:20  Moreover the (MOSAIC) law entered, that the offence might abound (BE MULTIPLIED AKA BE MORE APPARENT). But where sin abounded, grace (FAVOUR / MERCY) did much more abound:

Rom 5:21  That as sin hath reigned unto death (PRODUCING OR CAUSING DEATH), even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord.” (THIS PROVES THE “DEATH” IN THE 1ST PART OF THIS VERSE IS SPEAKING OF “DEATH ETERNAL” FOR THE PUNISHMENT OF SINS)

TO RECAP:

There are two types of death;(1) Physical death were you are separated from your body… And because of sin, the sinner no longer has access to the Tree of Life.(2) Spiritual death where you are separated from your Creator… This is the death spoken of when the Bible says “The wages of sin are death.” and “Your iniquities have made a separation between you and your God.”Anyone telling you that your sinning will not separate you from your Creator is simply echoing the lie told to Eve in the garden in Genesis 3:4 “You shall surely not die!” Jesus came to save His people FROM their sins (Matt 1:21) not IN their sins.Jesus commands you to REPENT of all the known sin in your life and to FORSAKE those sins and to put your faith in the atonement of Christ for the pardon of those past sins.Sinning with impunity or believing you have “Free Sins” is theological fantasy and will separate you from God… and unless repented of, that separation will last for time without end.This included the “sin and repent and sin and repent and sin and repent” souls that never really truly repent in Godly sorrow.

Romans Chapter 6

Dead to Sin, Alive to God

Rom 6:1 “What shall we say then? SHALL WE CONTINUE IN SIN, that grace may abound?

Rom 6:2  GOD FORBID. How shall WE, that are DEAD TO SIN, LIVE ANY LONGER THERIN?

Rom 6:3  Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death?

WATCH ALL THE COMMANDS THAT MAN MUST DO IN THE FOLLOWING VERSES – JESUS DID HIS WORK, NOT YOU MUST DO YOURS

Rom 6:4  Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, EVEN SO WE SHOULD WALK IN THE NEWNESS OF LIFE. (COMMAND)

1st John 5:18 “We know that whosoever is born of God SINNETH NOT; but he that is begotten of God KEEPETH HIMSELF, and that wicked one toucheth him not.”

YOU MUST OBEY AND WALK LIKE JESUS WALKED

1st John 2:3-6 “And hereby we do know that we know him, IF WE KEEP HIS COMMANDMENTS. 4  He that saith, I know him, AND KEEPETH NOT HIS COMMANDMENTS (MORAL LAW) , IS A LIAR, and the truth is not in him. 5 But WHOSO KEEPETH THE WORD, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him. 6 He that saith he abideth in HIM (JESUS) ought HIMSELF also so to walk, even as he (JESUS) walked.”

DOZENS OF SCRIPTURE COMMANDED A BELIEVER TO “WALK AS JESUS WALKED”


Rom 6:5  For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall BE ALSO IN THE LIKENESS of his resurrection: (COMMAND)

Rom 6:6  Knowing this, that OUR OLD (SINFUL) MAN IS CRUCIFIED, that THE BODY OF SIN MIGHT BE DESTROYED, that henceforth WE SHOULD NOT serve SIN. (COMMAND)

Rom 6:7  For he that is dead (IN CHRIST) is FREED FROM SIN.

Rom 6:8  Now IF WE BE DEAD WITH CHRIST, we believe that WE SHALL ALSO LIVE WITH HIM: (IN HOLINESS, RIGHTEOUSNESS)

Rom 6:9  Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him.

Rom 6:10  For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God.

Rom 6:11  LIKEWISE RECKON YE ALSO YOURSELVES TO BE DEAD INDEED UNTO SIN (COMMANDS), but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Rom 6:12  LET NOT SIN therefore reign in your mortal body (COMMAND), that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof. (YES, JESUS IS SAYING TO YOU “GO AND SON NO MORE LEST A WORSE THINK COME UPON YOU” – JOHN 5:14)

Rom 6:13  NEITHER YEILD YE YOUR MEMBERS AS INSTRUMENTS OF UNRIGHTEOUSNESS UNTO SIN: (COMMANDS) but YIELD YOURSELVES UNTO GOD, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God.

Rom 6:14  FOR SIN SHALL HAVE NO DOMINION OVER YOU: for ye are not under the (MOSAIC) law, but under grace. (AS WE READ ALL THE MORAL COMMANDS ABOVE, WATCH NEXT VERSES TO CLEARLY SHOW YOU THAT A TRUE CHRISTIAN IS NOT TO WILLFULLY SIN AGAINST A HOLY GOD)

Slaves to Righteousness

Rom 6:15  What then? SHALL WE SIN, because we are not under the law, but under grace? GOD FORBID.

Rom 6:16  Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of SIN UNTO DEATH, or of OBEDIENCE UNTO RIGHTEOUSNESS?

Rom 6:17  But God be thanked, that YE WERE (PAST TENSE) the servants of sin, but YE HAVE OBEYED FORM THE HEART that form of doctrine which was delivered you.

Rom 6:18  Being then made FREE FROM SIN (NOT IN SIN), ye became the SERVANTS OF RIGHTEOUSNESS.

Rom 6:19  I speak after the manner of men because of the infirmity of your flesh: for as ye HAVE (PAST TENSE) yielded your members servants to uncleanness and to iniquity unto iniquity (SIN); even so NOW YEILD YOUR MEMBERS SERVANTS TO RIGHTEOUSNESS UNTO HOLINESS.

Rom 6:20  For when YE WERE SERVANTS OF SIN (PAST TENSE), ye were free from righteousness.

Rom 6:21  What fruit had ye then in those things whereof ye are now ashamed? for the end of those things is death. (THE WAGES OF SIN IS DEATH)

Rom 6:22  But now being made FREE FROM SIN, and become SERVANTS TO GOD, YE HAVE your FRUIT (WORKS) UNTO HOLINESS, and THE END EVERLASTING LIFE.

Matthew 10:22 “And YE SHALL BE HATED OF ALL MEN for my name’s sake: but he that ENDURETH TO THE END shall be SAVED.”Ecclesiastes 12:13-14 “Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: FEAR GOD, AND KEEP HIS COMMANDMENTS: for THIS IS THE WHOLE DUTY OF MAN. 14 For God shall bring every work into judgment, with EVERY SECRET THING, whether it be good (RIGHTEOUSNESS UNTO ETERNAL LIFE), or whether it be evil (SIN UNTO DEATH).”Job 28:28 “And unto man he said, Behold, the FEAR OF THE LORD, THAT IS WISDOM; and to DEPART FROM EVIL (WILLFUL SIN) is understanding.”

Rom 6:23  For THE WAGES OF SIN IS DEATH; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”


Romans Chapter 7

Released from the Law (OF MOSES)

Rom 7:1  Know ye not, brethren, (for I speak to them that know the law (JEWISH MEMBERS OF THE ROMAN CHURCH) how that the (MOSAIC) law hath dominion over a man (WHO IS UNLAWFUL) as long as he liveth? (THIS STATEMENT IS NOT EXCLUSIVE TO THE MOSAIC LAW BUT ALL LAWS, INCLUDING THE MORAL LAW)

Rom 7:2  For the woman which hath an husband is bound by the law to her husband so long as he liveth; but if the husband be dead, she is loosed from the law of her husband.

Rom 7:3  So then if, while her husband liveth, she be married to another man, she shall be called an adulteress: but if her husband be dead, she is free from that law; so that she is no adulteress, though she be married to another man.

Paul is speaking consistent with God’s Law — Romans 7:1 which we just read says, “ 1 Know ye not, brethren, (for I speak to them that know the law) how that the law hath dominion over a man as long as he liveth?” (THE MARRIAGE COVENANT CAN BE BROKEN HOWEVER IN VERY NARROW CIRCUMSTANCES – JESUS DID NOT COME BACK TO CORRECT MOSES (LAW) AS JESUS IS THE VERY AUTHOR OF IT!)

“The spirit of the law of God never goes contrary to the letter of the law; but the letter of the law is meant to be obeyed according to the spirit of the law — the spirit of the law is simply the ORIGINALLY INTENDED USE of that law.  To use the letter apart from the spirit of the law is to abuse the law. Paul is using the general principle that a woman is bound by the law to her husband until death — THIS IS WHAT GOD INTENDED.  The laws that deal with exceptions to this deal with failures on one part of this arrangement that require remedies — failures like adultery, apostasy, and capital crime.  The illustration Paul used can be said of many like issues:  My car is by law my property until death — this is a general principle; but that same law that binds that car to me says I can sell it.  The same law that binds the wife says that certain things can break the covenant.” (M.Bullen)

HERE IS AN ENTIRE TEACHING ON THIS SUBJECT OF DIVORCE & REMARRIAGE

Rom 7:4  Wherefore, my brethren, ye also are become dead to the law by the body of Christ (CRUCIFIED); that ye should be married to another, even to him who is raised from the dead, that we should bring forth fruit unto God. (DEAD TO THE LAW” IN THE WAY OF JUSTIFICATION BUT NOT FREE FROM THE LAW OF MORAL OBEDIENCE)

Rom 7:5  For WHEN WE WERE (PAST) IN THE FLESH, the motions (PASSIONS) of sins, which were (CALLED UP – ILLUMINATED) by the law, did work in our members to bring forth fruit unto death. (SINFUL PROPENSITIES UNTO DEATH -THE WAGES OF SIN IS DEATH)

Rom 7:6  But now (UNDER THE GOSPEL VS THE MOSAIC DISPENSATION) we are delivered from the law, that being dead wherein we were held (IN BONDAGE TO IT); that we should serve in newness of spirit, and not in the oldness of the letter. (CONDITIONS)

The Law and Sin

Rom 7:7  What shall we say then? Is the law sin? GOD FORBID. Nay, I had not known sin, but by the law: for I had not known lust, except the law had said, Thou shalt not covet. (THE EVIL PROPENSITY WAS THERE BEFORE THE LAW BUT THE LAW ILLUMINATED IT – BROUGHT IT FORTH)

Rom 7:8  But sin, taking occasion by the commandment (ALL LAW), wrought in me all manner of concupiscence (UNLAWFUL DESIRE). For without the law (BEFORE IT WAS GIVEN) sin was dead. (UNEXCITED – MAN’S FEELINGS WERE “DEAD” TO IT)

Rom 7:9  For I was alive without the law once (IN THE DAYS OF MY IGNORANCE – A STRANGER TO THE LAW): but when the commandment came, sin revived (ILLUMINATED – CAME TO LIFE), and I died. (MEANING BEING AWARE OF HIS WRETCHED SIN AND ALL IT’S DESTRUCTION AND CONSEQUENCES)

CAN’T CLAIM IGNORANCE ON JUDGEMENT DAY – THE HOLY SPIRIT NOW RESIDES IN EVERY TRUE BELIEVER

Acts 17:30-31 “And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but NOW commandeth all men every where to REPENT: 31 Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will JUDGE THE WORLD in RIGHTEOUSNESS  by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead.”


Rom 7:10  And the commandment (THE LAW IN GENERAL – THE MORAL LAW OF RIGHTEOUSNESS), which was ordained to life, I found to be unto death. (THROUGH BREAKING IT)

Rom 7:11  For sin, taking occasion by the commandment, deceived me, and by it slew me. (THE PROPENSITY TO SIN IN A FALLEN WORLD ENTICED HIM BEFORE HIS TRUE CONVERSION AS IT DOES ALL MEN)

Rom 7:12  Wherefore the law is holy (PURE IN NATURE), and the commandment holy, and just, and good.
Rom 3:31 “Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid: yea, we establish the law.” (THE MORAL COMMANDS OF THE LAW, NOT THE CEREMONIAL, ARE IN EFFECT TODAY AND TRUE CHRISTIANS MUST OBEY IT.)

Rom 7:13  Was then that which is good made death unto me? God forbid. But sin, that it might appear sin, working death in me by that which is good; that sin by the commandment might become exceeding sinful.

I MUST STATE EMPHATICALLY THAT IN THE FOLLOWING VERSES, PAUL IS SPEAKING ABOUT HIS PRE-CONVERSION, NOT POST-CONVERSION WHEN HE WAS WALKING HOLY WITH JESUS, AS COMMANDED. WE MUST KEEP THE MORAL COMMANDMENTS OF GOD ABIDING IN GOD.

I SHALL NOT COMMENT ON THESE VERSES EXTENSIVELY AS I HAVE AN ENTIRE STUDY POSTED ON THIS SUBJECT (2 LINKS IMMEDIATELY BELOW)


Sold Under Sin? (“Romans 7” & “Chief of Sinners” Lies Paul was NOT the Chief of Sinners

I MUST HOWEVER ON THIS TEACHING HERE PRECEDE THESE “ROMAN 7” VERSES WITH BIBLICAL TRUTH THAT CLEARLY STATES A TRUE CHRISTIAN MUST LIVE BIBLICAL PERFECT AND HOLY, THUS, THESE PROCEEDING VERSES ABSOLUTELY CANT BE DEFINING PAUL AS AN TRUE CHRISTLIKE MAN OF GOD

SINNERS ARE UNDER THE LAW – LIST OF SINS OF COMMISSION (ONE WILL ALSO BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR SINS OF OMISSION)

Galatians 5:13-21 “For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another. 14 For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. 15 But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another. 16 This I say then, WALK IN THE SPIRIT, and YE SHALL NOT FULFILL THE LUSTS OF THE FLESH. 17  For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would. 18 But IF YE BE LED OF THE SPIRIT, ye are not under the law. 19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, 20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, 21.Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.”

1st Corinthians 6:9-10 “Know ye not that the unrighteous shall NOT INHERIT THE KINGDOM OF GOD? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate (METRO-SEXUAL), nor abusers of themselves with mankind (HOMOSEXUALS), 10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.”

Revelation 21:8 “But the fearful (COWARDLY), and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers (A DRUGGIST/PHARMACIST/DR WHO PRESCRIBES MIND-ALTERING PILLS AND THOSE WHO USE THEM TO GET HIGH), and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”

Luke 13:24  Strive (AGONIZE, FIGHT, LABOUR) to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able.”

1st Peter 4:18 “And if the RIGHTEOUS SCARCELY BE SAVED, WHERE SHALL THE UNGODLY AND SINNER APPEAR?”

GOT GRACE? NOT IF YOU ARE A DAILY SINNER IN “THOUGHT, WORD AND DEED” AS ALL THE ACCURSED WOLVES IN “99%” OF THE PULPITS WILL TELL YOU

Titus 2:11-15 “For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, 12 Teaching us that, denying UNGODLINESS and WORLDLY LUSTS, we should live SOBERLY, RIGHTEOUSLY, and GODLY, IN THIS PRESENT WORLD; 13 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; 14  Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works. 15 These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no man despise thee.”

1st Peter 1:14-16 “AS OBEDIENT CHILDREN, not fashioning yourselves according to the FORMER LUSTS in your IGNORANCE: 15 But as he which hath called you is HOLY, so BE YE HOLY in all manner of conversation; 16  Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.”

John 14:15 “IF ye love me, KEEP MY COMMANDMENTS.”

John 15:10 “IF YE KEEP MY COMMANDMENTS, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love.”

John 15:14 “Ye are my friends, IF YE DO WHATSOEVER I COMMAND YOU”

Rom 7:14  For we know that the law is spiritual: but I am carnal, sold under sin.

Rom 7:15  For that which I do I allow not: for what I would, that do I not; but what I hate, that do I.

Rom 7:16  If then I do that which I would not, I consent unto the law that it is good.

Rom 7:17  Now then it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.

Rom 7:18  For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not.

Rom 7:19  For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do. (HE HAS NO POWER OVER SIN IN HIS PRE-CONVERSION STATE. CAN ONE TRULY BELIEVE THE REFERENCED BELOW IS BLASPHEMY SPOKEN BY PAUL – AND OF COURSE AUTHORED BY GOD HIMSELF?)

1st Corinthians 9:27 “But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a CASTAWAY.”

YOU MUST ALWAYS OBEY AND WORKOUT YOUR OWN SALVATION

Philippians 2:12 “Wherefore, my beloved, as YE HAVE ALWAYS OBEYED, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, WORK OUT YOUR OWN SALVATION with FEAR and TREMBLING.”

Rom 7:20  Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.

Rom 7:21  I find then a law, that, when I would do good, evil is present with me.

Rom 7:22  For I delight in the law of God after the inward man:

Rom 7:23  But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members.

Rom 7:24  O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death? (JESUS!!! ALLELUIA!!!)

Rom 7:25  I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin.” (THIS VERSE, AND IN THE FOLLOWING VERSES IN THE NEXT CHAPTER, PAUL STARTS TO EXPLAIN HIS CONVERSION AND HOW A CONVERTED CHRISTIAN SHALL LIVE.

JESUS SUMS THAT UP WITH 3 GLORIOUS VERSE FROM 1ST JOHN:

1st John 2:3-6 “And hereby we do know that WE KNOW HIM, IF WE KEEP HIS COMMANDMENTS. 4 He that saith, I know him, and KEEPETH NOT HIS COMMANDMENTS IS A LIAR, AND THE TRUTH IS NOT IN HIM. 5 But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: HEREBY KNOW WE ARE IN HIM. 6 He that saith he abideth in him ought HIMSELF ALSO SO TO WALK, even as HE (JESUS) walked.”)


Romans Chapter 8

Rom 8:1 “There is therefore now no condemnation to them WHICH ARE IN Christ Jesus, who WALK NOT ACCORDING AFTER THE FLESH but AFTER TO THE SPIRIT.

YOU MUST “WALK AS JESUS WALKED” HERE ON EARTH TO MAKE HEAVEN

Romans 4:12 “And the father of circumcision to them who are not of the circumcision only, but who also WALK IN THE STEPS OF THAT FAITH of our father Abraham, which he had being yet uncircumcised.”

James 2:20-22 “But wilt thou know, O vain man, that FAITH WITHOUT WORKS IS DEAD? 21 Was not ABRAHAM our father JUSTIFIED BY WORKS, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar? 22 Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and BY WORKS WAS FAITH MADE PERFECT?”

Romans 6:4 “Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so WE SHOULD ALSO WALK IN NEWNESS OF LIFE.”

John 8:12 “Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: HE THAT FOLLOWETH ME SHALL NOT WALK IN DARKNESS, but shall have the light of life.”

Rom 8:2  For the Law (IN AND OF ITSELF) of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law (THAT CONDEMNS) of sin and death. (THE HOLY SPIRIT THAT DWELLS IN BELIEVERS DELIVERS FROM SIN – NOT HOLD PEOPLE TO BONDAGE IN SIN)

Rom 8:3  For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh (SURELY IT WAS NOT THE LAW’S FAULT, IT WAS GOOD (ROMANS 7:12), IT WAS THE INFLUENCE OF AN UNRENEWED HEART AS WE READ IN ROMANS 1:7-11), God sending his own Son (TO DO WHAT THE LAW COULD NOT DO) in the likeness of sinful flesh (THE SINFUL PROPENSITIES AND DESIRES OF AN UNSAVED SOUL), and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh; (AN UNSAVED SOUL CAN NOT PLEASE GOD AND IS INHERENTLY WICKED)

1st John 5:18-21 “We know that whosoever is born of God SINNETH NOT; but he that is begotten of God KEEPETH HIMSELF, and that wicked one toucheth him not. 19 And we know that we are of God, and THE WHOLE WORLD (SINNERS) LIES IN WICKEDNESS. 20 And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life. 21 Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen.”


Rom 8:4 That the righteousness of the Law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. (A SIMPLE STATEMENT THAT A CONVERTED SOULS MUST OBEY THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF THE LAW AND FORSAKE WILLFUL SIN)

Rom 8:5  For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.

Rom 8:6  For to be carnally minded (UNSAVED/DISOBEDIENT) is death (ETERNAL), but to be spiritually minded (LIVING RIGHTEOUS) is life and peace

Rom 8:7  because the carnal mind (THE WILLFUL SINNER) is enmity against God, for it is not subject to the Law of God, neither indeed can it be. (IT’S IN TOTAL OPPOSITION / REBELLION TO GOD’S LAW)

Rom 8:8  So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God. (UNSAVED SINNERS CANNOT PLEASE GOD – THERE IS A WAY OUT HOWEVER)

2nd Corinthians 7:10-11 “For GODLY SORROW worketh REPENTANCE to SALVATION not to be repented of: but THE SORROW OF THE WORLD WORKETH DEATH. 11 For behold this selfsame thing, that ye sorrowed after a godly sort, WHAT CAREFULNESS it wrought in you, yea, what CLEARING OF YOURSELVES, yea, WHAT INDIGNATION, yea, WHAT FEAR, yea, WHAT VEHEMENT DESIRE, yea, WHAT ZEAL, yea, WHAT REVENGE! In all things ye have APPROVED YOURSELVES to be clear in this matter.”James 5:1-6 “Go to now, ye rich men, weep and howl for your miseries that shall come upon you. 2 Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are motheaten. 3 Your gold and silver is cankered; and the rust of them shall be a witness against you, and shall eat your flesh as it were fire. YE HAVE HEAPED TREASURE FOR THE LAST DAYS (YOU HAVE BURIED THE TALENT$ THAT BELONG TO GOD). 4 Behold, the hire of the labourers who have reaped down your fields, which is of you kept back by fraud, crieth: and the cries of them which have reaped are entered into the ears of the Lord of sabaoth. 5 YE HAVE LIVED IN PLEASURE ON EARTH, and been WANTON (INCREDIBLY COMFORTABLE – NON SACRIFICIAL FOR CHRIST); ye have nourished your hearts, as in a day of slaughter. 6 Ye have condemned and killed the just; and HE doth not resist you.”

Rom 8:9  But ye are not in the flesh (CHRISTIAN), if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.

Rom 8:10  And if Christ be in you, indeed the body is dead because of sin (SIN HAS NO MORE POWER TO EXCITE EVIL PASSIONS AND DESIRES), but the Spirit is life because of righteousness. (NOW ATTAINED BY THE BORN-AGAIN SOUL LIVING RIGHTEOUSLY WITH THE AID OF THE HOLY SPIRIT. OF COURSE NEVER OVERRIDING THE FREE WILL OF MAN)

Rom 8:11  But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken (MAKE ALIVE) your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.

Heirs with Christ

Rom 8:12  Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh. (Rom 6:7  For he that is dead is FREED FROM SIN (AND IT’S GRASP).

Rom 8:13  For if IF YE LIVE AFTER THE FLESH, ye shall die: but IF ye through the Spirit do MORTIFY THE DEEDS OF THE BODY (CONDITION), ye shall live.

Rom 8:14  For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. (THOSE WHO SUBMIT AND YEILD TO THE HOLY SPIRIT ARE THE SON’S OFF GOD)

Rom 8:15  For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.

Rom 8:16  The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:

Rom 8:17  And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together. (AS LONG AS THE “CHILDREN” ENDURE ‘TIL THE END OF THEIR NATURAL LIFE, THEY WILL BE GLORIFIED)

Matthew 10:22 “And YE SHALL BE HATED OF ALL MEN for my name’s sake: but he that ENDURETH TO THE END shall be SAVED.”


Jude 1:3-8 “Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints. 4 For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, TURNING THE GRACE OF OUR GOD INTO LASCIVIOUSNESS, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ. 5 I will therefore put you in remembrance, though ye once knew this, how that the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed them that believed not. 6 AND THE ANGELS WHICH KEPT NOT THEIR FIRST ESTATE (HEAVEN), BUT LEFT their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day. 7 Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire. 8 Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities.”

James 1:13-16 “Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man: 14 But every man is tempted, when he is DRAWN AWAY BY HIS OWN LUST, and enticed. 15 Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth SIN: and SIN, when it is finished, bringeth forth DEATH. 16 Do not err (DO NOT SIN – DO NOT LOST SALVATION), my BELOVED BRETHREN.”

Future Glory

Rom 8:18  For I reckon that THE SUFFERINGS (ALL TRUE CHRISTIANS SUFFER FOR CHRIST) of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. (HEAVEN IS THE ETERNAL PRIZE)

2nd Timothy 2:12 “IF WE SUFFER, we shall also reign with him: IF WE DENY HIM, HE ALSO WILL DENY US. 13 If we believe not, yet he abideth faithful: he cannot deny himself.” (YOU WILL BE JUDGED BY YOUR ACTIONS!)


Rom 8:19  For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God.

Rom 8:20  For the creature (THE RENEWED CHRISTIAN) was made subject to vanity (SUFFERING, ABUSE, MISERY, CORRUPTION, DO GOOD TO YOUR ENEMIES), not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope, (GOD IN HIS INFINITE WISDOM WORKS ALL THINGS FOR HIS GLORY)

Rom 8:21  Because the creature itself (THE RANSOMED MAN) also SHALL BE DELIVERED from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.

Rom 8:22  For we know that the whole creation (ALL LIVING THINGS) groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now.


“TO LIVE IS CHRIST” – PAY CLOSE ATTENTION TO THE STRUGGLE THE APOSTLE HAS HERE – A FAMILIAR STRUGGLE EVERY CHRISTIAN SHOULD FEEL AS THEY ENDURE THE PERSECUTIONS AND PROSECUTIONS OF THIS WICKED WORLD

Philippians 1:18  What then? notwithstanding, every way, whether in pretence, or in truth, Christ is preached; and I therein do rejoice, yea, and will rejoice. (IN PRETENSE – EVEN SOME OF THE GOSPEL IS PREACHED AND MAY LEAD TO THE HEARER TO WANT TO LEARN MORE)Php 1:19  For I know that this shall turn to (MAGNIFY) my salvation through your prayer, and the supply of the Spirit of Jesus Christ,Php 1:20  According to my earnest expectation and my hope, that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but that WITH ALL BOLDNESS, as always, so now also Christ shall be magnified in my body, whether it be by life, or by death.Php 1:21  FOR ME TO LIVE IS CHRIST, AND TO DIE IS GAIN.Php 1:22  But if I live in the flesh (HIS EARTHLY STATE), this is the fruit of my labour: yet what I shall choose I wot not. (A VERY POWERFUL TRUTH FOR ALL TRUE BELIEVERS. WE PRAY THAT THE LORD TARRIES SO WE CAN CONTINUE HIS WORK ON EARTH BUT OF COURSE WE ARE “HATED BY ALL FOR HIS NAME SAKE” AND THERE IS GREAT PERSECUTION. ON THE OTHER HAND, WE PRAY THAT THE LORD COMES SOON)Php 1:23  For I am in a strait betwixt two, having a desire to depart, and to be with Christ; which is far better:Php 1:24  Nevertheless to abide in the flesh is more needful for you.”

Rom 8:23  And not only they (THE CREATION IN GENERAL), but ourselves also (CHRISTIANS), which have the firstfruits of the Spirit (THE FIRST CHRISTIANS WHO OF COURSE RECEIVE THE HOLY SPIRIT AT CONVERSION), even we ourselves groan within ourselves (DEEP ANGUISH), waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body.

CHRISTIANS ARE ADOPTED UPON CONVERSION, HOWEVER, TRIALS, TRIBULATIONS AND ETC ARE PREVALENT UNTIL FINAL SALVATION IF ONE “ENDURED ‘TIL THE END”

Rom 8:15 “For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.”

Rom 8:24  For we are saved by hope (WE, CHRISTIANS, DO NOT YET POSSESS FINAL SALVATION): but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for?

Matthew 10:22 “And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but HE THAT ENDURETH TO THE END SHALL BE SAVED.”
Rom 8:25  But if we hope for that we see not, then do we WITH PATIENCE WAIT FOR IT.

WATCH THE PARABLE OF THE SOWER

Luke 8:10-15 “And he said, Unto you it is given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God: but to others in parables; that seeing they might not see, and hearing they might not understand. 11 Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God. 12 Those by the way side are they that hear; then cometh the devil, and TAKETH AWAY THE WORD OUT OF THEIR HEARTS, lest they should believe and be saved. 13 They on the rock are they, which, when they hear, receive the word with joy; and these have no root, which FOR A WHILE BELIEVE, and IN TIME OF TEMPTATION FALL AWAY. 14 And that which fell among thorns are they, which, when they have heard, go forth, and are choked with cares and riches and pleasures of this life, and bring no fruit to perfection. 15 But that on the good ground are they, which in an honest and good heart, having heard the word, KEEP IT, and BRING FORTH FRUIT (RIGHTEOUSNESS) WITH PATIENCE.”

MOST EITHER NEVER COME TO CHRIST TRULY IN THE 1ST PLACE OR THE FALL AWAY WHEN TRIALS COME

Matthew 10:34-36 “Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I CAME NOT TO SEND PEACE, BUT A SWORD (DIVISION). 35 For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. 36 And a man’s foes(ENEMIES) shall be they OF HIS OWN HOUSEHOLD.”


2Co 4:17 “For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory;
2Co 4:18  While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.”

Rom 8:26  Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities (TRIALS IN LIFE, WEAKNESS, ETC – NOT SPEAKING OF BLATANT WILLFUL SIN FOR GOD HEARETH NOT SINNERS JOHN 9:31): for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself (HIMSELF) maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. (MEANING HUMANS MANY TIMES DO NOT HAVE THE RIGHT WORDS WHEN PRAYING OR CAN’T EXPRESS PERFECTLY THE PRAYER SO THE HOLY SPIRIT INTERCEDES)

Rom 8:27  And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God.

Rom 8:28  And we know that all things (TRIALS, AFFLICTIONS, PERSECUTIONS) work together for good TO THEM THAT LOVE GOD (AFFLICTIONS ARE A BLESSING), to them who are the CALLED according to his purpose.

Rom 8:29  For whom he did FOREKNEW, he also did PREDISTINATE to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.

Rom 8:30  Moreover whom he did PREDISTINATE, them he also called: and whom he CALLED, them he also JUSTIFIED: and whom he justified, them he also GLORIFIED.

I SHALL NOT COMMENT HERE ON THESE ABOVE VERSES AS WE HAVE EXTENSIVE TEACHING AT THE TWO LINKS BELOW ON THEM

Refuting Calvinism / Reformed Theology THE 5 SOLA DECEPTION – REBUKING THE GREAT HERESY OF CALVINISM / RE(DE)FORMED THEOLOGY

God’s Everlasting Love

Rom 8:31  What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?

Rom 8:32  He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?

Rom 8:33  Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God’s elect? It is God that justifieth. (AGAIN, “ELECT” IS DEFINED IN THE ABOVE TEACHINGS AND THE NEXT CHAPTER)

Rom 8:34  Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.

Rom 8:35  Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?

Rom 8:36  As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.

Rom 8:37  Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. (FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD HE SEND A SIN-OFFERING (JESUS)  MEANING HIS LOVE AND COMFORT IS AVAILABLE TO ALL THOSE WHO WISH TO REPENT AND ABIDE IN HIM. THE CONTRAST IS BELOW AND DEFINED IN THE NEXT CHAPTER)

John 3:18-21 “He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not IS CONDEMNED ALREADY, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. 19 And this is the condemnation, that light (JESUS) is come into the world, and men loved darkness (SIN) rather than light (JESUS), because THEIR DEEDS WERE EVIL- THEY WILLFULLY SIN AGAINST A HOLY GOD). 21 For EVERY ONE THAT DOETH EVIL (SINS) HATETH the light (JESUS), neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved (THEY LOVE THEIR SIN MORE THAN JESUS). 21 But he that DOETH TRUTH (DOES NOT WILLFULLY SIN) cometh to the light (COMES TO JESUS), that HIS DEEDS MAY BE MANIFEST, that they are wrought (PERFORMED ACCORDING TO THE WILL) in God.”

Rom 8:38  For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,

Rom 8:39  Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

EVERY WORD IN THE BIBLE IS TRUTH. WITH THAT SAID, THE ABOVE VERSES COULD NOT BE MORE CLEAR THAT NO MAN OR OTHER THINGS CAN SEPARATE A TRUE BELIEVER FROM GOD, HOWEVER, THE BELIEVE CAN WALK AWAY (LOSE) ON THEIR OWN FREE WILL, A HUMAN BEING DOES NOT TURN INTO A ROBOT UPON CONVERSION. THAT WOULD GIVE GOD ABSOLUTELY NO GLORY

Once Saved Always Saved (OSAS)? Eternal Security? Perseverance of the Saints?


Romans Chapter 9

Romans Chapter 9 Rightly Divided

Calvin got his wicked doctrine from Augustine (the wicked catholic), Spurgeon continued it as well as many others. Paul Washer, RC Sproul, Tim Conway, John Piper, John MacArthur, Voddie Baucham, etc, etc are all modern day ministers of satan spewing the lies of calvinism.

Romans 9-11 are chapters on how a Christian should see and unbelieving Jew. Do they automatically get a pass or do they have to truly repent, believe and receive Christ Jesus as the Messiah? We will debunk the wicked judaizers in this study. God is not a slave to any people group nor a respecter of persons. No one can demand God’s salvation due to genealogy.

Romans is a doctrinal study to new believers in the Christian faith. Chapter 9 is explaining the place for the Jew as the Gentiles now have access to salvation.

Rom 9:1 I say the truth in Christ, I lie not, my conscience also bearing me witness in the Holy Ghost,
Rom 9:2 That I have great heaviness and continual sorrow in my heart.
Rom 9:3 For I could wish that myself were accursed from Christ for my brethren, my kinsmen according to the flesh: (Paul was an inraelite (Jew)
Rom 9:4 Who are Israelites; to whom pertaineth the adoption, and the glory, and the covenants, and the giving of the law, and the service of God, and the promises;
Rom 9:5 Whose are the fathers(Abraham, Isaac, Jacob), and of whom as concerning the flesh Christ came, who is over all, God blessed for ever. Amen.
Rom 9:6 Not as though the word of God hath taken none effect. For they are not all Israel, which are of Israel:
Rom 9:7 Neither, because they are the seed of Abraham, are they all children: but, In Isaac shall thy seed be called.
Rom 9:8 That is, They which are the children of the flesh, these are not the children of God: but the children of the promise are counted for the seed. (this has always been the case as Paul will show from the OT, that God’s children were not because of ethnicity – never has been. They had privileges but it did not mean they would be saved)! This verse is speaking to those who obey(meet) the covenant.

Remember Acts 5:32 And we are his witnesses of these things; and so is also the Holy Ghost, whom God hath given to them that obey him.

Act 5:32 “And we are his witnesses of these things; and so is also the Holy Ghost, whom God hath given to them that obey him.”

Rom 9:9 For this is the word of promise, At this time will I come, and Sara shall have a son.
Rom 9:10 And not only this; but when Rebecca also had conceived by one, even by our father Isaac;

Rom 9:11 (For the children being not yet born, neither having done any good or evil, that the purpose of God according to election might stand(just saying God’s purpose according to election is not contradicted). (These verses show a people group He chose to work through, not salvation of individuals)(This is a rebuke to the Jews that though their wrong approach and saying God was their debtor), not of works, but of him that calleth;)

Rom 9:12 It was said unto her, The elder shall serve the younger.
Rom 9:13 As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated.

(Malachi 1: 1,2,3) This is not speaking of God having an ill will towards Esau, but the reaction to Esau’s will. God did not choose Esau to damnation and Jacob to salvation. The words hated and loved are often connected with choice.

Mat 6:24  No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.”

Mal 1:1 The burden of the word of the LORD to Israel by Malachi.
Mal 1:2 I have loved you, saith the LORD. Yet ye say, Wherein hast thou loved us? Was not Esau Jacob’s brother? saith the LORD: yet I loved Jacob, (talking about a nation)
Mal 1:3 And I hated Esau, and laid his mountains and his heritage waste (talking about a nation) for the dragons of the wilderness.

Esau never served Jacob in his life.  Speaking about descendents:

Rom 9:12  It was said unto her, The elder shall serve the younger.

(Choosing nations)… it’s talking about their descendents. NOT individual salvation and not through every son of Abraham, they can’t earn that right by the wrong approach. It’s no strange thing that God does not work through every son of Abraham. They can’t earn that right with the wrong approach that the Jews had at that time.

Rom 9:14 What shall we say then? Is there unrighteousness with God? God forbid.

God is clearing up misconceptions that one may have from previous verses. God does not abritairely accept or reject individuals. God is JUST. God is bound by His own law. God does NOT respect persons! If God did that, He would be unrighteous. 

God is NOT the author of evil! Isaiah 45:7 is talking about judgement and calamity (as in Sodom & Gomorrah and it was perfectly righteous and JUST), not moral evil! He judged with calamity… John 8:44 says Satan is the LIAR and creator of it! God is bound to righteousness Calvinism is a wicked lie.

The carnal mind = death. This is the reason men hate God. Calvinism has men hating God because HE made them. (RUBBISH)! Rom 8:7 “Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.”
Isa 45:7 I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things.

Rom 9:15 For he saith to Moses, I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion. (God’s mercy is based on conditions. The true children of God are those who find mercy).

Deu 13:17 And there shall cleave nought of the cursed thing to thine hand: that the LORD may turn from the fierceness of his anger, and shew thee mercy, and have compassion upon thee, and multiply thee, as he hath sworn unto thy fathers;
Deu 13:18 When thou shalt hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, to keep all his commandments which I command thee this day, to do that which is right in the eyes of the LORD thy God.

This is why the Jews were rejected…who did not have a broken spirit and contrite heart.

Psa 51:16-17 “For thou desirest not sacrifice; else would I give it: thou delightest not in burnt offering. The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.”

Psa 103:17 But the mercy of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting UPON THEM THAT FEAR HIM, and his righteousness unto children’s children;
Psa 103:18 TO SUCH THAT KEEP HIS COVENANT, and to those THAT REMEMBER HIS COMMANDMENTS AND DO THEM.

Gal 6:14 But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world.
Gal 6:15 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision, but a new creature.(THE JEWS WERE WRONGLY GLORYING IN PHYSICAL CIRCUMCISION)
Gal 6:16 And AS MANY AS WALK ACCORDING TO THIS RULE, peace be on them, and mercy, and upon the Israel of God.

We MUST wilfully submit to Him and endure ’til the end in holiness conforming to Christ. God’s mercy is not arbitrary. Those that meet the conditions find it. God is not going to make exceptions who do not meet these conditions. We must seek remissions of sins through His blood  as we obey.

The following passage also kills the “perseverance of the saints” / OSAS false doctrine too! Even though Paul had been born-again he clearly states here he can lose salvation if he does not run the race in obedience “til the end.

1Co 9:23 And this I do for the gospel’s sake, that I might be partaker thereof with you.
1Co 9:24 Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So RUN, that ye may obtain. (We need to run according to God’s redemptive plan)!
1Co 9:25 And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible.
1Co 9:26 I therefore so RUN, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air:
1Co 9:27 But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a CASTAWAY. (One must RUN and endue lest they become a CASTAWAY)!

Heb 12:1 Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us RUN with patience the race that is set before us,
Heb 12:2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross(WE MUST BEAR OUR OWN CROSS), despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

WE HAVE TO RUN THE RACE ACCORDING TO THE MESSIAH AND HIS COMMANDS. ONE HAS TO RECEIVE JESUS AS LORD AND SAVIOUR AND RUN THE RACE.

2Ti 4:6 For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand.
2Ti 4:7 I have fought a good fight, I have FINISHED MY COURSE, I HAVE KEPT THE FAITH:
2Ti 4:8 Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.

Heb 11:6 “But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that DILIGENTLY SEEK HIM.”

Paul is going to get into what about those who don’t find mercy & compassion. What is the reason?

Rom 9:16 So then it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that sheweth mercy.
Rom 9:17 For the scripture saith unto Pharaoh, Even for this same purpose have I raised thee up, that I might shew my power in thee, and that my name might be declared throughout all the earth.
Rom 9:18 Therefore hath he mercy on whom he will have mercy, and whom he will he hardeneth(the opposite of finding mercy). Example is Pharaoh who fought God at every step by his own free will, one who DESERVED judgement! Was this not Pharoah’s fault? OF COURSE! The wicked calvinist say Pharoah never had a choice. The opposite was true. Pharaoh, by his own free will, was disobedient and REJECTED God and received so many chances to repent! The destruction of Jerusalem in AD 70 is another example of the fault of sinners!

God was not preventing Pharoah to find mercy. This was all Pharoah’s free will.

Exo 9:13 And the LORD said unto Moses, Rise up early in the morning, and stand before Pharaoh, and say unto him, Thus saith the LORD God of the Hebrews, Let my people go, that they may serve me.
Exo 9:14 For I will at this time send all my plagues upon thine heart, and upon thy servants, and upon thy people; that thou mayest know that there is none like me in all the earth.
Exo 9:15 For now I will stretch out my hand, that I may smite thee and thy people with pestilence; and thou shalt be cut off from the earth.
Exo 9:16 And in very deed for this cause have I raised thee up, for to shew in thee my power; and that my name may be declared throughout all the earth.
Exo 9:17 As yet EXHALTEST THOU THYSELF against my people(FREE WILL), that thou wilt not let them go? (DISOBEDIENT JUST LIKE THE UNBELIEVING JEWS WERE DOING)
Exo 9:18 Behold, to morrow about this time I will cause it to rain a very grievous hail, such as hath not been in Egypt since the foundation thereof even until now.
Exo 9:19 Send therefore now, and gather thy cattle, and all that thou hast in the field; for upon every man and beast which shall be found in the field, and shall not be brought home, the hail shall come down upon them, and they shall die.
Exo 9:20 He that feared the word of the LORD among the servants of Pharaoh made his servants and his cattle flee into the houses:
Exo 9:21 And he that regarded not the word of the LORD left his servants and his cattle in the field.
Exo 9:22 And the LORD said unto Moses, Stretch forth thine hand toward heaven, that there may be hail in all the land of Egypt, upon man, and upon beast, and upon every herb of the field, throughout the land of Egypt.
Exo 9:23 And Moses stretched forth his rod toward heaven: and the LORD sent thunder and hail, and the fire ran along upon the ground; and the LORD rained hail upon the land of Egypt.
Exo 9:24 So there was hail, and fire mingled with the hail, very grievous, such as there was none like it in all the land of Egypt since it became a nation.
Exo 9:25 And the hail smote throughout all the land of Egypt all that was in the field, both man and beast; and the hail smote every herb of the field, and brake every tree of the field.
Exo 9:26 Only in the land of Goshen, where the children of Israel were, was there no hail.
Exo 9:27 And Pharaoh sent, and called for Moses and Aaron, and said unto them, I have sinned this time: the LORD is righteous, and I and my people are wicked.
Exo 9:28 Intreat the LORD (for it is enough) that there be no more mighty thunderings and hail; and I will let you go, and ye shall stay no longer.
Exo 9:29 And Moses said unto him, As soon as I am gone out of the city, I will spread abroad my hands unto the LORD; and the thunder shall cease, neither shall there be any more hail; that thou mayest know how that the earth is the LORD’S.
Exo 9:30 But as for thee and thy servants, I know that ye will not yet fear the LORD God.
Exo 9:31 And the flax and the barley was smitten: for the barley was in the ear, and the flax was bolled.
Exo 9:32 But the wheat and the rie were not smitten: for they were not grown up.
Exo 9:33 And Moses went out of the city from Pharaoh, and spread abroad his hands unto the LORD: and the thunders and hail ceased, and the rain was not poured upon the earth.
Exo 9:34 And when Pharaoh saw that the rain and the hail and the thunders were ceased, HE SINNED YET MORE(FREE WILL), and HARDENED HIS HEART, HE AND HIS SERVANTS. (PHAROAH COULD HUMBLED HIMSELF AND OBEYED THE LORD)
Exo 9:35 And the heart of Pharaoh was hardened, neither would he let the children of Israel go; as the LORD had spoken by Moses.

HARDNESS IS NOT GOD KEEPING A MAN FROM BELIEVING AND IT’S THE SINNERS FAULT. CALVINISTS ARE LIARS. THE FOLLOWING WAS WRITTEN ABOUT THE SAME TIME AS ROMANS.

Act 19:8 And he went into the synagogue, and spake boldly for the space of three months, disputing and persuading the things concerning the kingdom of God.
Act 19:9 But when divers were hardened, and believed not, but spake evil of that way before the multitude, he departed from them, and separated the disciples, disputing daily in the school of one Tyrannus.

AGAIN FREE WILL

Heb 3:7 Wherefore (as the Holy Ghost saith, To day if ye will hear his voice,
Heb 3:8 HARDEN NOT YOUR HEARTS, as in the provocation, in the day of temptation in the wilderness:

WHAT A HATEFUL GOD IF HE LED PEOPLE TO REPENTANCE AND THEN HARDENED THEIR HEARTS!

Rom 2:4 Or despisest thou the riches of his goodness and forbearance and longsuffering; not knowing that the goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance?
Rom 2:5 But after THY hardness and IMPENITENT HEART treasurest up unto thyself wrath against the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God; (THE HARDENING OF THE HEART IS GOD PULLING BACK LIGHT  IN RIGHTEOUSNESS & JUSTICE WHEN ONE HAS NOT CHOSEN TO SEE OR HEAR THE LIGHT THEY ALREADY HAVE)
Rom 2:6 Who will render to every man according to his deeds:
Rom 2:7 To them who by patient continuance in well doing seek for glory and honour and immortality, eternal life:

ROMANS 9 TEACHES THE OPPOSITE OF WHAT CALVINISTS TEACH. GOD WILL NOT STOP ONE WHO IS DISOBEDIENT. THIS IS WHAT WE SEE WITH PHARAOH AND THE JEWS.

God will not stop someone from pursuing! God’s “hardening” is Him withholding his Grace (REVELATION AND LIGHT) from willful sinners!

Luk 19:42 Saying, If thou hadst known, even thou, at least in this thy day, the things which belong unto thy peace! but now they are hid from thine eyes.

JESUS BLAMES THE JEWS THEMSELVES & THEIR OWN DISOBEDIENCE TO HIM. THESE WERE THE SAME PEOPLE THAT JESUS SAID IN CHAPTER 13(Luk 13:34  O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, which killest the prophets, and stonest them that are sent unto thee; how often would I have gathered thy children together, as a hen doth gather her brood under her wings, and ye would not!) JESUS WOULD HAVE TO BE THE BIGGEST HYPOCRITE AND LIAR IF THE CALVINISTS WERE RIGHT! HE WANTED THEM TO SEE WHO HE WAS BUT THEY WERE DISOBEDIENT. CALVINISM SAYS GOD WILL FORCE THEM TO REPENT…LIARS!

PETER UNDERSTOOD JESUS WAS THE CHRIST IN MATTHEW 16 BECAUSE HE WAS FAITHFUL. MANY HAD A FALSE FAITH FROM SEEING MIRACLES, ETC. GOD GAVE HIM THE FURTHER REVELATION THAT JESUS WAS THE MESSIAH WHEREAS THE JEWS WERE BLINDED TO THAT AS THEY DID NOT BELIEVE IN JESUS AND THUS KEPT TEACHING THE “WORKS OF THE LAW”. Mat 16:17 “And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.” 

GOD WILL NOT STEP INTO PREVENT YOU FROM NOT BELIEVING /OBEYING. GOD DID NOT ENCOURAGE PHAROAH TO DO EVIL BUT HE DID NOT STOP HIM EITHER. PHARAOH WAS SO STUBBORN AND DISOBEDIENT, NO MATTER WHETHER BROUGHT THE PLAGUES OR STOPPED THE, PHARAOH WOULD HAVE STILL USED IT EITHER WAY TO REBEL AGAINST GOD. 

THOSE WHO ARE CONTENT ON THEIR OWN IDEAS AND ARE NOT LISTENING TO GOD WILL FEEL GOD’S JUSTICE AS WE SEE BELOW.

Joh 9:39 And Jesus said, For judgment I am come into this world, that they which see not might see; and that they which see might be made blind.

WE PRIMARILY LEARN ABOUT THE FATHER BY OBEYING THE SCRIPTURES/COMMANDS OF GOD.

Joh 6:44  No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.
Joh 6:45  It is written in the prophets, And they shall be all taught of God. Every man therefore that hath HEARD, AND HATH LEARNED OF THE FATHER, cometh unto me.

WE SEE GOD TURNING FROM PEOPLE AND WE SEE THOSE WHO ARE BEING FAITHFUL TO THE LIGHT THEY HAVE GIVEN MORE

Act 13:45 But when the Jews saw the multitudes, they were filled with envy, and spake against those things which were spoken by Paul, contradicting and blaspheming.
Act 13:46 Then Paul and Barnabas waxed bold, and said, It was necessary that the word of God should first have been spoken to you: but seeing ye put it from you, and judge yourselves unworthy of everlasting life, lo, we turn to the Gentiles.
Act 13:47 For so hath the Lord commanded us, saying, I have set thee to be a light of the Gentiles, that thou shouldest be for salvation unto the ends of the earth.
Act 13:48 And when the Gentiles heard this, they were glad, and glorified the word of the Lord: and as many as were ordained(APPOINTED) to eternal life believed. (they were faithful with the light their were given)

Luk 8:18 Take heed therefore how ye hear: for whosoever HATH, to him shall be GIVEN; and whosoever HATH NOT, from him shall be TAKEN even that which he seemeth to have.

Psa 81:10 I am the LORD thy God, which brought thee out of the land of Egypt: OPEN THY MOUTH WIDE, and I will fill it.
Psa 81:11 BUT MY PEOPLE would not hearken to my voice; and Israel would none of me.
Psa 81:12 So (THEN) I gave them up unto their own hearts’ lust: and they walked in their own counsels.

John speaking to Jews that were hardening their OWN hearts. GOD WANTS THEM TO REPENT EVEN WHILE HARDENING THEIR HEARTS DUE TO DISOBEDIENCE. JESUS IS SPEAKING TO THE JEWS HERE WHO ARE NOT HEEDING THE LIGHT THEY HAVE AND HE IS CALLING THEM TO REPENT LEST FURTHER DARKNESS COME UPON THEM. WE WILL SEE BLINDNESS AND HARDENING HERE.

Joh 12:35 Then Jesus said unto them, Yet a little while is the light with you. Walk while ye have the light, lest darkness come upon you: for he that walketh in darkness knoweth not whither he goeth.
Joh 12:36 While ye have light, believe in the light, that ye may be the children of light. These things spake Jesus, and departed, and did hide himself from them.
Joh 12:37 But though he had done so many miracles before them, yet they believed not on him: (NOT WAKING IN THE LIGHT THEY HAVE)
Joh 12:38 That the saying of Esaias the prophet might be fulfilled, which he spake, Lord, who hath believed our report? and to whom hath the arm of the Lord been revealed?
Joh 12:39 Therefore they could not believe, because that Esaias said again,
Joh 12:40 He hath blinded their eyes, and hardened their heart; that they should not see with their eyes, nor understand with their heart, and be converted, and I should heal them. (Acts 28 & Isaiah 6)
Joh 12:41 These things said Esaias, when he saw his glory, and spake of him.

Rom 9:19 Thou wilt say then unto me, Why doth he yet find fault? For who hath resisted his will?
Rom 9:20 Nay but, O man, who art thou that repliest against God? Shall the thing formed say to him that formed it, Why hast thou made me thus?
Rom 9:21 Hath not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump to make one vessel unto honour, and another unto dishonour? (this is spoken to the unbelieving critic (jew). This is not arbitrary. GOD CAN CHOOSE TO USE THE WICKED FOR HIS OWN PURPOSE BUT THIS IS AFTER THE SINNER HAS CHOSEN TO DISOBEY)

LOOK HOW OPPOSITE THIS IS TO THE ACCURSED CALVIN DOCTRINE

Jer 18:1 The word which came to Jeremiah from the LORD, saying,
Jer 18:2 Arise, and go down to the potter’s house, and there I will cause thee to hear my words.
Jer 18:3 Then I went down to the potter’s house, and, behold, he wrought a work on the wheels.
Jer 18:4 And the vessel that he made of clay was marred in the hand of the potter: so he made it again another vessel, as seemed good to the potter to make it.
Jer 18:5 Then the word of the LORD came to me, saying,
Jer 18:6 O house of Israel, cannot I do with you as this potter? saith the LORD. Behold, as the clay is in the potter’s hand, so are ye in mine hand, O house of Israel.
Jer 18:7 At what instant I shall speak concerning a nation, and concerning a kingdom, to pluck up, and to pull down, and to destroy it;
Jer 18:8 If that nation, against whom I have pronounced, TURN FROMM THEIR EVIL, I will repent of the evil that I thought to do unto them.
Jer 18:9 And at what instant I shall speak concerning a nation, and concerning a kingdom, to build and to plant it;
Jer 18:10 If it do EVIL in my sight, that it OBEY NOT MY VOICE, then I will repent of the good, wherewith I said I would benefit them.
Jer 18:11 Now therefore go to, speak to the men of Judah, and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem, saying, Thus saith the LORD; Behold, I frame evil against you(because they were chosing evil that they could have repented of), and devise a device against you: return ye now every one from his evil way, and make your ways and your doings good.

Jer 18:19 Give heed to me, O LORD, and hearken to the voice of them that contend with me.
Jer 18:20 Shall evil be recompensed for good? for they have digged a pit for my soul. Remember that I stood before thee to speak good for them, and to turn away thy wrath from them. (A CALVIN DEATH VERSE!!!)

People are vessels of wrath because they CHOOSE not to repent. We were all vessels of wrath at one point!

Tit 2:11 For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men,
Tit 2:12 Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world;
Tit 2:13 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;
Tit 2:14 Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.

Col 3:6 For which things’ sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience:
Col 3:7 In the which ye also walked some time, when ye lived in them.
Col 3:8 But now ye also put off all these; anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth.

Rom 9:22 What if God, willing to shew his wrath, and to make his power known, endured with much longsuffering the vessels of wrath fitted to destruction: (ENDURING WITH LONGSUFFERING WITH NO CHANCE OF REPENTANCE IS MOCKERY)
Rom 9:23 And that he might make known the riches of his glory on the vessels of mercy(THOSE WHO REPENTED AS WE WILL SEE IN THE NEXT VERSES), which he had afore prepared unto glory,(not talking to predestined people but those who responded to the Gospel call)
Rom 9:24 Even us, whom he hath called, not of the Jews only, but also of the Gentiles?(WHO USED TO BE VESSELS OF WRATH) GOD HAD TO JUDGE THE JEWS FOR THEIR REJECTION OF CHRIST AND TO MAKE A NEW COVENANT WITH JEWS AND GENTILES THAT WAS EXCLUDING MUCH OF THE NATURAL ISRAELITES(THE UNBELIEVERS)
Rom 9:25 As he saith also in Osee, I will call them my people, WHICH WERE NOT MY PEOPLE; and her beloved, which was not beloved. (not talking to a predestined people but those who responded to the Gospel call).

THOSE WHO HAVE ANSWERED THE GOSPEL CALL ARE THOSE WHO ARE VESSELS OF MERCY. BEING JEWISH ALONE DOES NOT GET YOU ACCEPTED WITH GOD NOT DOES BEING A GENTILE MEAN YOU CAN’T ENTER GOD’S COVENANT BUT YOU DO HAVE TO WORSHIP THE GOD OF THE JEWS. PSALM 85:6. GOD IS NO RESPECTER OF PERSONS AND HAS NEVER BEEN! OBEDIENT FAITH IS THE ONLY WAY TO GOD AND ALWAYS HAS BEEN. THE PERFECT BELIEVERS IN CHRIST WERE NOT ETERNAL VESSELS OF MERCY BUT USED TO BE VESSELS OF WRATH. NOW BY OBEDIENCE THEY ARE VESSELS OF MERCY.

Rom 9:26 And it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my people; there shall they be called the children of the living God.

THE TOPIC OF THE ENTIRE CHAPTER HAS NEVER CHANGED. IT SHOULD NOT BE STRANGE THAT UNBELIEVING ISRAELITES ARE CUT OFF FROM GOD’S COVENANT. THEY WERE ALWAYS ISRAELITES WHEN GOD REJECTED THEM AND JUDGED FOR THEIR DISOBEDIENCE.
Rom 9:27 Esaias also crieth concerning Israel, Though the number of the children of Israel be as the sand of the sea, a REMNANT shall be saved:
Rom 9:28 For he will finish the work, and cut it short in righteousness:(HE DIDN’T GIVE THE DISOBEDIENT JEWS THOUSANDS OF YEARS TO REPENT) because a short work will the Lord make upon the earth.
Rom 9:29 And as Esaias said before, Except the Lord of Sabaoth had left us a seed, we had been as Sodoma, and been made like unto Gomorrha.
Rom 9:30 What shall we say then? That the Gentiles, which followed not after righteousness, have attained to righteousness, even the righteousness which is of faith. (PAUL COULD HAVE SPOKEN ABOUT CALVINIST PREDESTINATION HERE AND HE ABSOLUTELY DID NOT)!

WE SEE HERE HOW THE JEWS STUMBLED AT CHRIST AND MISSED THEIR OWN MESSIAH BY THEIR UNLAWFUL USE OF THE LAW THEY DID NOT SUBMIT TO.

Rom 9:31 But Israel, which followed after the law of righteousness, hath not attained to the law of righteousness.
Rom 9:32 Wherefore?(WHY?) Because they sought it not by faith, but as it were by the works of the law. For they stumbled at that stumblingstone;(CHRIST)
Rom 9:33 As it is written, Behold, I lay in Sion a stumblingstone and rock of offence: and whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.

THOSE WHO BELIEVED THE LAW TRULY WERE POINTED TO CHRIST. THOSE WHO WEREN’T WERE STUMBLED. THE WICKED ARE WICKED BECAUSE THEY ARE WORKERS OF INIQUITY. ANY JEW THAT WAS TRULY OBEDIENT TO THE LAW OF MOSES WAS EASILY ABLE TO COME INTO CHRIST. THE ONES THAT WEREN’T HEEDING THE LAW OF MOSES DID NOT COME TO JESUS AS THEY WERE NOT PREPARED.

Luk 13:23 Then said one unto him, Lord, are there few that be saved? And he said unto them,
Luk 13:24 Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able.
Luk 13:25 When once the master of the house is risen up, and hath shut to the door, and ye begin to stand without, and to knock at the door, saying, Lord, Lord, open unto us; and he shall answer and say unto you, I know you not whence ye are:
Luk 13:26 Then shall ye begin to say, We have eaten and drunk in thy presence, and thou hast taught in our streets.
Luk 13:27 But he shall say, I tell you, I know you not whence ye are; depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity.

SPEAKING TO THE JEWS

Joh 5:45 Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father: there is one that accuseth you, even Moses, in whom ye trust.
Joh 5:46 For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me: for he wrote of me.
Joh 5:47 But if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe my words?

WE SEE THE CONDITIONS THE JEWS THAT WERE ZEALOUS AND WERE SEEKING TO KNOW THE ORDINANCES OF THE LAW, FASTING, ETC TO TRY TO PLEASE GOD BUT THESE VERY SAME PEOPLE WERE NOT KEEPING GOD’S SABBATH, THEY WERE OPPRESSING THE POOR, NOT HELPING THE NEEDY, THEY WERE LYING, ETC. THEY HAD A VIEW ODF OF THE LAW THAT WAS VERY SHALLOW (JUST LIKE THE FALSE CHURCH ON THE STREET CORNER THAT IS PREVALENT TODAY). MERCY, JUDGMENT AND FAITH THEY OMITTED.

ISAIAH CHAPTERS 58 & 59

MATT CHAPTERS 5-7 (THE PEOPLE OF ISRAEL HAD A VERY SHALLOW VIEW OF THE LAW THAT CAME FROM THE SHALLOW SELF-JUSTIFYING LEADERS, JUST LIKE TODAY). SINNING “PASTORS” LEADING A HELLBOUND SINNING “CHURCH”.

Mat 5:20 “For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.”

WE SEE ON THE SERMON ON THE MOUNT THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD’S TRUE LAW WITH THE FALSE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF THE SCRIBES AND PHARISEES. THEY WERE VERY ZEALOUS OF THE CEREMONIES BUT DID NOT TRULY TURN TO GOD WITH THEIR OWN HEART (SIMILAR TO THE WICKED CATHOLICS). YOU NEED TO BE TOTALLY SOLD OUT IN THOUGHT, WORD AND DEED TO BE RIGHT WITH JESUS.

In Matthew chapter 3 John the Baptist rebuked the Jewish people, especially the Jewish leaders:

Mat 3:9 “And think not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, that God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham.”

THE UNBELIEVING JEWS WERE CAST OUT OF GOD’S COVENANT. UNTIL THEY REPENT TOWARDS GOD AND BELIEVE IN AND SUBMIT TO THE CONDITION OF HIS COVENANT (RECEIVE JESUS’ BLOOD ATONEMENT FOR THEIR SINS) THE JEWS END UP IN HELLFIRE OTHERWISE.

THIS IS WHAT’S EXPRESSED IN ROMANS 9-11.

READ ROMANS CHAPTERS 10 & 11. YOU WILL SEE THE UNBELIEVING JEW IS NOT ELECT DUE TO HIS OWN DISOBEDIENCE TO THEIR VERY OWN SCRIPTURE. THE APOSTLES SPEAK ABOUT AND PRAY FOR THESE WILLINGLY NON-ELECT JEWS TO TRULY BELIEVE AND SEE THE GENTILES FAITH. OTHERWISE, THEIR “ELECTION” IS REVERSED. SALVATION IS SIMPLY THE RESPONSE TO THE GOSPEL CALL (CONDITIONAL ELECTION). MAN IS IN A PERIOD OF PROBATION WHEN THEY TRULY BELIEVE. YOU ARE NOT ELECTED BEFORE THE FOUNDATION OF THE WORLD! YOU MUST OBEY THE GOSPEL OF CHRIST, NO MATTER WHO YOU ARE. SIN = DEATH!

The Jews were not “elect” as many did not make it! And you will see those who are in the covenant, even the Gentiles, can lose salvation! God, again, is not a respecter of persons! Whether a “jew” or Christian!If you believe in ANY of the calvinist false doctrine, you are on the wide road to hellfire. Repent and get right with God. It’s a man-centered doctrine.

Romans Chapter 10

Rom 10:1  Brethren, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved. (A CHRISTIAN IS TO HAVE HOPE FOR EVERYONE NO MATTER HOW WRETCHED, LIKE THE JEWISH NATION IS THAT ABHORS JESUS)

Rom 10:2  For I bear them record (A WITNESS) that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge. (THE APOSTLE IS PREPARING THEM FOR THE TRUTH THAT IS TO FOLLOW. THEY REJECTED THE MESSIAH AND STILL BELIEVE, WRONGLY, THAT THE MOSAIC LAW WILL SAVE THEM. SADLY, ALL JEWS WHO HAVE DIED AND CONTINUE TO WILL END UP IN THE ETERNAL LAKE OF FIRE. HERE STARTS THE EXHORTATION TO TRY TO PULL A FEW OUT THE FIRE)

Rom 10:3  For they being ignorant of God’s righteousness (THE SAVING GRACE OF JESUS WHO TRUE BELIEVERS THAT LIVE HOLY RECEIVE), and going about to establish their own righteousness (THE MOSAIC/CEREMONIAL LAW), have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God.

Rom 1:17 “For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.”

MAN MUST CONFIRM TO THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD BY LIVING RIGHTEOUSLY TO RECEIVE HIS SAVING GRACE

Revelation 22:11 “He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still.”

Rom 10:4  For Christ is the (COMPLETION) end of the (MOSAIC) law for righteousness to every one that believeth. (JESUS ALONE JUSTIFIES AND SANCTIFIES ALL THOSE WHO LOVE HIM AND OBEY HIS MORAL COMMANDMENTS. THE OLD TESTAMENT LAW IN FULFILLED IN HIM BUT THE SHADOW ALL ALONG POINTED TO RIGHTEOUS LIVING. NOW, WITH THE HELP OF THE HOLY SPIRIT ONE AN ACHIEVE JUST THAT, IN HIM)

1st John 3:3-10 “And every man that hath this hope in him PURIFIETH HIMSELF, even as HE (JESUS) is pure.4 WHOSOEVER COMMITTETH SIN TRANSGRESSED THE (MORAL) LAW: for sin is the transgression of the law. 5 And ye know that he was manifested to take away our sins; and in him is no sin. 6 Whosoever abideth in him SINNETH NOT: WHOSOEVER SINNETH hath not seen him, neither known him. 7 Little children, let no man deceive you: HE THAT DOETH RIGHTEOUSNESS IS RIGHTEOUS, EVEN AS HE IS RIGHTEOUS. 8 HE THAT COMMITTETH SIN IS OF THE DEVIL; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.9 WHOSOEVER IS BORN OF GOD DOTH NOT COMMIT SIN; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. 10 In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: WHOSOEVER DOETH NOT RIGHTEOUSNESS IS NOT OF GOD, neither he that loveth not his brother.”

The Message of Salvation to All

Rom 10:5  For Moses describeth the THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF THE LAW (THIS IS KEY), That the man which doeth those things shall live by them.

Leviticus 18:5 “Ye shall therefore KEEP MY STATUTES, and my judgments: which IF A MAN DO, HE SHALL LIVE IN THEM: I am the LORD.”
Rom 10:6  But the righteousness which is of faith speaketh on this wise, Say not in thine heart, Who shall ascend into heaven? (that is, to bring Christ down from above:)

Rom 10:7  Or, Who shall descend into the deep? (that is, to bring up Christ again from the dead.)

Rom 10:8  But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach;

Rom 10:9  That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

Proverbs 28:13 “He that covereth (NOT CONFESS) his sins shall not prosper: but whoso CONFESSETH and FORSAKETH them shall have mercy.”

Rom 10:10  For with the heart man believeth UNTO RIGHTEOUSNESS; and with the mouth CONFESSION is made unto SALVATION.

Luke 10:27-28 “And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself. 28 And he said unto him, Thou hast answered right: this do, and thou shalt live.”John 14:15 “IF ye love me, KEEP MY COMMANDMENTS.”1st John 2:6 “He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to WALK, even as HE (JESUS) walked.”

Rom 10:11  For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.

Rom 10:12  For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.

Rom 10:13  For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. (NOT JUST AN OUTWARD CONFESSION OR JUST GOING THROUGH THE MOTIONS OF GOING TO “CHURCH” WEEKLY, ETC BUT A TRUE 24/7/365 DEVOTION TO HIM IN THOUGHT, WORD AND DEED)

Matthew 7:21-23 “Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but HE THAT DOETH THE WILL OF MY FATHER which is in heaven. 22 MANY will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity (YOU WHO DO NOT OBEY MY COMMANDMENTS – YOU SINNER).”

Rom 10:14  How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher? (MAN WILL PERISH WITHOUT TRUE FAITH IN CHRIST FOR SALVATION / DELIVERANCE FROM SIN – WATCH ROMANS 10:16-21 COMING UP. THE WORK OF GOD “WENT INTO ALL THE EARTH” YET EVEN THE VAST MAJORITY OF GOD’S “CHOSEN” ONES DID NOT RECEIVE IT AND PERISHED AND CONTINUE TO DO SO BUT FOR THE FEW THAT GET SAVED. THIS GOES FOR THE GENTILES TOO)

Rom 10:15  And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, HOW BEAUTIFUL ARE THE FEET OF THEM THAT PREACH THE GOSPEL OF PEACE and bring glad tidings of good things!

Rom 10:16  But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Esaias saith, Lord, who hath believed our report?

Rom 10:17  So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. (A COMMISSION TO PREACH THE GOSPEL / TO WITNESS, ETC)

Rom 10:18  But I say, Have they (THE GENTILES) not heard? (REPLYING TO THE PREVIOUS VERSES) Yes verily, their sound went into all the earth, and their words unto the ends of the world. (SEE PSALM 19 BELOW)

Rom 10:19  But I say, Did not Israel know? First Moses saith, I will provoke you to jealousy by them that are no people, and by a foolish nation I will anger you. (THE JEWS SHOULD HAVE KNOW BY MOSES AND ISAIAH THAT THE GENTILE WORLD WOULD RECEIVE SALVATION BUT MOST ALL OF THEM REJECTED THIS FACT TO THEIR DESTRUCTION – GOD ACCEPTED INSTEAD A NATION THAT WAS NOT A NATION AS THEY BECAME FOOLISH)

1st Peter 2:9-12  “But ye (BELIEVERS IN CHRIST) are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, AN HOLY NATION, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath CALLED YOU OUT OF DARKNESS into HIS marvellous light: 10 Which in time past (THE GENTILES OF MANY NATIONS) were not a people, but ARE NOW THE PEOPLE OF GOD: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy. 11 Dearly beloved (CHRISTIANS “NOT OF THIS WORLD”), I beseech you as strangers (FOREIGNERS) and pilgrims, ABSTAIN FROM FLESHLY LUSTS (SIN), which war against the soul; 12 Having your conversation (BEHAVIOR) honest (HOLY, RIGHTEOUS, HONORABLE) among the Gentiles (THE PAGANS YOU WALK ABOUT): that, whereas they speak against you as evildoers, they may BY YOUR GOOD  WORKS, which they shall behold, glorify God in the day of visitation (OF GOD’S GRACE) .”


Rom 10:20  But Esaias is very bold, and saith, I was found of them that sought me not; I was made manifest unto them that asked not after me. (THE GENTILES WERE NOW CALLED)

Rom 10:21  But to Israel he saith, All day long I have stretched forth my hands unto A DISOBEDIENT AND GAINSAYING PEOPLE a disobedient and gainsaying people.” (THE JEWS WERE REJECTED)

Psalm 19:1-14 “To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. The heavens (SUN, MOON STARS, ETC) declare the glory of God; and the firmament (THE WHOLE VISIBLE EXPANSE OF GOD’S CREATION INCLUDING NOT ONLY THE MOON, STARS, LIGHT  BUT ALSO THE RAIN, DEW, ETC- ROMANS 1:20) sheweth his handywork. 2 Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge. 3 There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard. (WITHOUT THEIR VOICE IS HEARD) 4 Their line (INSTRUCTION) is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun, 5 Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race. 6 His going forth is from the end of the heaven, and his circuit unto the ends of it: and there is nothing hid from the heat thereof. 7 The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple. (FEAR OF GOD, REVERENCE, RIGHTEOUSNESS, HOLINESS IS THE CALL OF THE BELIEVER – LETS READ ON TO SEE THE HEART OF F TRUE BELIEVER) 8 The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart: the COMMANDMENT of the LORD is PURE, enlightening the eyes. 9 The FEAR of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever: the JUDGMENTS of the LORD are true and RIGHTEOUS altogether. 10 More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb. 11 Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and IN KEEPING OF THEM THERE IS GREAT REWARD. 12 Who can understand his errors? cleanse thou me from SECRET FAULTS (MEANING SIN’S THAT ARE EVEN HIDDEN FROM THE EYE OF HIM THAT COMMITTED THEM AND THE WORLD, BY GOD. HIS GLORY AND  MAJESTY IS ENDLESS AND A TRUE BELIEVER STRIVES (AGONIZES) TO ENTER THE STRAIT GATE). 13 Keep back thy servant also from PRESUMPTUOUS SINS (IN OPPOSITION TO THE SECRET SINS ABOVE. PRIDE, ARROGANCE, ETC); let them not have dominion over me: then shall I be upright, and I SHALL BE INNOCENT from the great transgression. 14 Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.”


Romans Chapter 11

The Remnant of Israel

Rom 11:1  I say then, Hath God cast away his people? God forbid. For I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin. (GOD WILL NEVER LEAVE OR FORSAKE TRUE BELIEVERS WHETHER YOU WERE BORN A JEW OR GENTILE. THERE  IS A “FEW” OF BOTH THAT WILL BE SAVED AS “FEW WILL ENTER” HEAVEN. OF COURSE AS WE SEE THE “CHOSEN” OF “ONCE SAVED” CAN CHOOSE ON THEIR OWN FREE WILL TO LEAVE GOD AND END UP IN ETERNAL DESTRUCTION)

Rom 11:2  God hath not cast away his people which he foreknew (SEE ROMANS 9 FOR DEFINITION – SAW FORM THE BEGINNING, NOT PICKED INDIVIDUALLY). Wot ye not what the scripture saith of Elias? how he maketh intercession to God against Israel, saying,

Rom 11:3  Lord, they have killed thy prophets, and digged down thine altars; and I am left alone, and they seek my life.A TRUE BELIEVER IS HATED

Luke 21:15-17 “For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist. 16 And ye shall be betrayed both by parents, and brethren, and kinsfolks, and friends; and some of you shall they cause to be put to death. 17  And YE SHALL BE HATED BY ALL MEN FOR MY NAME’S SAKE.”

Matthew 24:9-13 “Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, AND SHALL KILL YOU: and YOU SHALL BE HATED of all nations for MY name’s sake. 10 And then SHALL MANY BE OFFENDED (BY THE TRUTH), and shall betray one another, and SHALL HATE ONE ANOTHER. 11 And MANY FALSE PROPHETS SHALL (HAVE) ARISE, and shall DECEIVE MANY. 12 And because iniquity shall abound, THE LOVE OF MANY (HAS) SHALL WAX COLD. 13 But HE THAT SHALL ENDURETH UNTIL THE END (LIVING HOLY), the same shall be SAVED.”

Rom 11:4  But what saith the answer of God unto him (A DIVINE RESPONSE)? I have reserved to myself seven thousand men (MEANING INDEFINITE NUMBER), who have not bowed the knee to the image of Baal. (THE GOLDEN CALF – FALSE gODS)

Rom 11:5  Even so then at this present time also there is a remnant according to the election of grace.

Rom 9:27  Esaias also crieth concerning Israel, Though the number of the children of Israel be as the sand of the sea, a remnant (A SMALL NUMBER THAT TRULY BELIEVE) shall be saved”

Rom 11:6  And if by grace, then is it no more of (MOSAIC) works: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it be of works, then is it no more grace: otherwise work is no more work.

Rom 11:7  What then? Israel hath not obtained that which he seeketh for (SALVATION BY CEREMONIAL WORKS OF THE MOSAIC LAW); but the election hath obtained it, and the rest were blinded

Rom 11:8  (According as it is written, God hath given them the spirit of slumber, eyes that they should not see, and ears that they should not hear;) unto this day.

Rom 11:9  And David saith, Let their table be made a snare, and a trap, and a stumblingblock, and a recompence unto them:

Rom 11:10  Let their eyes be darkened, that they may not see, and bow down their back alway.

Gentiles Grafted In

Rom 11:11  I say then, Have they stumbled that they should fall? God forbid: but rather through their fall salvation is come unto the Gentiles, for to provoke them to jealousy. (NOT ALL JEWS HAVE FALLEN BUT MOST ALL, THE REMNANT WILL BE SAVED AS STATED ABOVE AND THIS LEADS THE WAY FOR THE SALVATION OF THE GENTILES AS THE JEWS, IN GENERAL, REJECTED JESUS AND HIS PERFECT AND ONLY WAY TO HEAVEN)

Rom 11:12  Now if the fall of them be the riches of the world, and the diminishing of them the riches of the Gentiles; how much more their fulness?

Rom 11:13  For I speak to you Gentiles, inasmuch as I am the apostle of the Gentiles, I magnify mine office:

Rom 11:14  If by any means I may provoke to emulation them which are my flesh (MY KINSMAN), and MIGHT SAVE SOME OF THEM.

Rom 11:15  For if the casting away of them be the reconciling of the world, what shall the receiving of them be, but life from the dead?

Rom 11:16  For if the firstfruit be holy (SET APART), the lump is also holy: and if the root be holy, so are the branches. (FROM ABRAHAM, ISSAC AND JACOB FORWARD – ALL THE OBEDIENT SOULS)

Rom 11:17  And if some of the branches be broken off (THE MAJORITY OF THE ISRAELITE (THE UNBELIEVING), NOT ALL AS MENTIONED IN THE LAST CHAPTER (V.16) ARE BROKEN OFF AND LOST FOREVER), and thou (GENTILES), being a wild olive tree, wert graffed in among them, and with them partakest of the root and fatness of the olive tree;

Rom 11:18  Boast not against the branches. But if thou boast, thou bearest not the root, but the root thee. (ANYONE CAN BE “BROKEN OFF” GOING BACK TO UNBELIEF SO BE VERY CAREFUL. THE HEART OF A TRUE CHRISTIAN IS TO SHARE THE GOOD NEWS TO ALL. THE MOST WRETCHED ARE THE JUDIAZERS WHO BELIEVE THAT ALL JEWS ARE “CHOSEN” AND DON’T NEED TO BE CONVERTED TO MAKE HEAVEN. WICKED, GODLESS THEOLOGY THAT LEADS TO ETERNAL FIRE)

Rom 11:19  Thou wilt say then, The branches were broken off, that I might be graffed in.

Rom 11:20  Well; BECAUSE OF UNBELIEF (DISOBEDIENCE TO GOD’S MORAL LAW) they were broken off, and thou standest by faith. Be not highminded, but fear:

Rom 11:21  FOR IF GOD SPARED NOT THE NATURAL BRANCHES (JEWS), TAKE HEED LEST HE ALSO SPARE NOT THEE.

Rom 11:22  Behold therefore the goodness AND SEVERITY of God: on them which fell (FROM FAITH), severity; but toward thee (OBEDIENT BELIEVERS), goodness,IF THOU CONTINUE IN HIS GOODNESS: OTHERWISE THOU SHALT ALSO BE CUT OFF.

Rom 11:23  And they also (THE JEWS), if they abide not still in unbelief, shall be graffed in: for God is able to graff them in again. (THERE IS STILL HOPE FOR ANYONE WHO TRULY REPENTS. THIS REBUKES THE HERESY OF “IF YOU SIN, EVEN ONCE AFTER BEING BORN AGAIN YOU CAN’T GO THROUGH A SEASON OF SORROW, REPENT, AND COME BACK INTO THE VINE. SURELY MANY DON’T TRULY REPENT AND ULTIMATELY PERISH AFTER ONCE BEING IN THE VINE)

Rom 11:24  For if thou wert cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and wert graffed contrary to nature into a good olive tree: how much more shall these, which be the natural branches, be graffed into their own olive tree?

The Mystery of Israel’s Salvation

Rom 11:25  For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery (HIDDEN KNOWLEDGE), lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel (THE JEWS), until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in.

Rom 11:26  And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob: (THIS ABSOLUTELY DOES NOT MEAN THAT ALL ISRAEL (JEWS) CURRENTLY AND OF TIMES PAST WILL BE SAVED ETERNALLY, IN CAN’T CONTRADICT THE MANY TRUTHS THAT WE ALREADY READ IN THE ROMANS’ STUDY ALONE THAT STATE THE GREAT MAJORITY WERE REJECTED AND LOST. SAVED MEANING THE REMANENT OF BELIEVING JEWS WILL BE PART OF THE NEW “HOLY NATION” OF BELIEVERS, THE “PECULIAR PEOPLE”).

Rom 11:27  For this is my covenant unto them (WHO BELIEVE IN THE MESSIAH), when (THEN) I shall take away their sins.

Rom 11:28  As concerning the gospel, they are enemies (BECAUSE OF UNBELIEF) for your sakes: but as touching the election, they (WHO TRULY BELIEVE) are beloved for the fathers’ sakes.

Rom 11:29  For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance. (GOD DOES NOT REPENT OF CALLING THE JEWS EVEN THOUGH MOST ALL REJECT HIM AND ALSO HE WILL NOT REPENT FOR CALLING THE GENTILES)

Rom 11:30  For as ye (GENTILES) in times past have not believed God, yet have now obtained mercy through their unbelief: (REJECTING THE MESSIAH THERE IS NOW A WAY FOR THE GENTILES)

Rom 11:31  Even so have these (THE JEWS) also now not believed, that through your mercy they also may obtain mercy. (BY THE GENTILES LIVING OUT THE TRUE GOSPEL AND HAVING PITY ON (BY PREACHING, ETC) THE LOST AND WRETCHED CONDITION OF JEWS)

Rom 11:32  For God hath concluded them all in unbelief (SHUT THEM UP ALL TOGETHER), that he might have mercy upon all. (BOTH JEWS & GENTILES)

Rom 11:33  O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out!

Rom 11:34  For who hath known the mind of the Lord? or who hath been his counsellor?

Rom 11:35  Or who hath first given to him, and it shall be recompensed unto him again?

Rom 11:36  For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen.”


Romans Chapter 12

A Living Sacrifice

Rom 12:1  I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye PRESENT YOUR BODIES AS A LIVING SACRIFICE, HOLY, ACCEPTABLE UNTO GOD, which is YOUR REASONABLE SERVICE.

Rom 12:2  And BE NOT CONFORMED OT THIS WORLD (AND ALL IT’S ENTERTAINMENT, ETC): but be ye TRANSFORMED by the renewing of your mind, that ye may PROVE WHAT IS THAT GOOD (CONDITION), and ACCEPTABLE, and PERFECT, will of God.

A FRIEND OF THE WORLD (SPORTS WATCHERS, DISNEY GOERS, FANCY CARS, FANCY HOMES, FANCY OR BEACH VACATIONS, ETC) WHILE THE WORLD STARVES WILL MAKE YOU AN ENEMY OF A HOLY GOD

James 4:4 “Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the FRIENDSHIP OF THE WORLD IS ENMITY WITH GOD? whosoever therefore will be A FRIEND OF THE WORLD IS THE ENEMY OF GOD .”

Luke 14:33 “So likewise, whosoever he be of you that FORSAKETH NOT ALL THAT HE HATH, he CANNOT BE MY DISCIPLE.”

1st John 3:17 “But whoso hath this world’s good, and seeth his brother have need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him?”

Gifts of Grace

Rom 12:3  For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.

Rom 12:4  For as we have many members in one body, and all members have not the same office:

Rom 12:5  So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another.

Rom 12:6  Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of faith;

Rom 12:7  Or ministry, let us wait on our ministering: or he that teacheth, on teaching;

Rom 12:8  Or he that exhorteth, on exhortation: he that giveth, let him do it WITH SIMPLICITY; he that ruleth, with diligence; he that sheweth mercy, with cheerfulness.

Marks of the True Christian

Rom 12:9  Let love be without dissimulation (HYPOCRISY). Abhor (HATE) that which is evil; CLEAVE TO THAT WHICH IS GOOD. (COMMANDS)

Rom 12:10  Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another;

Rom 12:11  NOT SLOTHFUL IN BUSINESS; FERVENT IN SPIRIT (INTENSE ZEAL – ON FIRE); SERVING THE  LORD; (IN ALL THINGS)

99% OF PROFESSING “CHRISTIANS” ARE LUKEWARM PEW WARMERS IN FALSE CHURCHES GETTING THEIR EARS TICKLED. NO WORKS?

Revelation 3:15-16 “I KNOW THY WORKS, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. 16 So then because thou art LUKEWARM, and neither cold nor hot, I will SPUE THEE OUT OF MY MOUTH.”

Rom 12:12  Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer;

Rom 12:13  Distributing to the necessity of saints; given to hospitality.

James 1:27 “PURE (PERFECT) RELIGION and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and TO KEEP HIMSELF UNSPOTTED (MORALLY & PHYSICALLY) FROM THE WORLD.”

A TRUE CHRISTIAN WALK

Acts 2:44-47 “And ALL THAT BELIEVED WERE TOGETHER, and HAD ALL THINGS IN COMMON (COMMUNITY); 45 And SOLD THEIR POSSESSIONS AND GOODS (NON-NECESSITIES), and PARTED THEM TO ALL MEN, AS EVERY MAN HAD NEED. 46 And they, CONTINUING DAILY IN ONE ACCORD in the temple, and BREAKING BREAD FROM HOUSE TO HOUSE, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart, 47 Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved.”

Rom 12:14  Bless them which persecute you: bless, and curse not.

Rom 12:15  Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep.

Rom 12:16  BE OFF THE SAME MIND (NOT JUST “ESSENTIALS”) one toward another. Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate. Be not wise in your own conceits.

Rom 12:17  Recompense to no man evil for evil. Provide things honest in the sight of all men.

Rom 12:18  If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men.

Rom 12:19  Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.

Rom 12:20  Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head.

Rom 12:21  Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.”


Romans Chapter 13

Submission to the Authorities

Rom 13:1 “Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers (THE GOVERNMENT). For there is no power (AUTHORITY) but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.

Rom 13:2  Whosoever therefore resisteth the power (GOES AGAINST PROPER AUTHORITY, OPPOSED TO NORMAL LAW, RUDE/DISOBEDIENT TO GOVERNMENT/POLICE,ETC, THE CONSPIRACY THEORISTS THAT RAIL AGAINST THE GOVERNMENT, ETC), resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist SHALL RECEIVE THEMSELVES DAMNATION.

Rom 13:3  For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil (DOERS). (IN GENERAL – SURE THERE ARE SOME THAT ARE CORRUPT BUT THIS DOES NOT EXCUSE THE WHOLE) Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same:

Rom 13:4  For he is the minister of God to thee for good. (PROTECTION AND “GOOD” IN GENERAL) But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil.

Rom 13:5  Wherefore ye must needs be subject, not only for wrath, but also for conscience sake. (GOD HAS APPOINTED GOVERNMENTS, IN GENERAL FOR GOOD, FOR GENERAL PEACE, ETC NOT IN A THEOCRATIC SENSE, BUT AGAIN, IN A GENERAL SENSE. IMAGINE NOT HAVING GOVERNMENTS?? CHAOS WOULD ENSUE)

Rom 13:6  For for this cause (BECAUSE APPOINTED BY GOD) pay ye tribute also (DUE TAXES, ETC): for they are God’s ministers (SERVANTS/SUBORDINATE TO GOD), attending continually upon this very thing. (KEEPING THE PEACE, ETC)

Rom 13:7  Render therefore to all their dues (TO THE LAW OF THE LAND): tribute (LAND TAX) to whom tribute is due; custom to whom custom (OTHER TAXES); fear to whom fear (REVERENCE TO LAWS AND THOSE WHO UPHOLD THEM); honour (RESPECT) to whom honour.

Fulfilling the Law Through Love

Rom 13:8  Owe no man any thing (DON’T BE IN DEBT TO ANYONE UNRIGHTEOUSELY – MUTUAL LOVE & RESPECT), but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law (OF MOSES). (BY FOLLOWING THE MORAL COMMANDMENTS OF GOD – NOT THE CEREMONIAL LAWS THAT WERE FULFILLED ON THE TREE)

Rom 13:9  For this, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Thou shalt not covet; and if there be any other commandment, it is briefly comprehended in this saying, namely, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

Rom 13:10  Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the (MOSAIC) law.

Rom 13:11  And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep (INACTIVITY, NOT “WALKING AT NIGHT” AS MANY DO, SIN IN GENERAL) : for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed.

Rom 13:12  The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore CAST OFF THE WORKS OF DARKNESS, and let us PUT ON THE ARMOUR OF LIGHT. (CONDITIONS)

Rom 13:13  LET US WALK HONESTLY, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering (LEWD AND IMMODEST BEHAVIOUR) and wantonness, not in strife (CONTENTION, DISPUTES, ETC) and envying.

Rom 13:14  But PUT YE ON THE LORD JESUS CHRIST, and make not provision for the flesh (NO PROVISION TO FULFILL THE LUSTS OF THE FLESH – SIN), to fulfil the lusts thereof.”

SINNERS ARE UNDER THE LAW – LIST OF SOME SINS

Galatians 5:13-21 “For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another. 14 For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. 15 But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another. 16 This I say then, WALK IN THE SPIRIT, and YE SHALL NOT FULFILL THE LUSTS OF THE FLESH. 17  For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would. 18 But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law. 19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, 20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, 21.Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.”

1st Corinthians 6:9-10 “Know ye not that the unrighteous shall NOT INHERIT THE KINGDOM OF GOD? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate (METRO-SEXUAL), nor abusers of themselves with mankind (HOMOSEXUALS), 10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.”

Revelation 21:8 “But the fearful (COWARDLY), and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers (A DRUGGIST/PHARMACIST/DR WHO PRESCRIBES MIND-ALTERING PILLS AND THOSE WHO USE THEM TO GET HIGH), and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”Luke 13:24  Strive(AGONIZE, FIGHT, LABOUR) to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able.”


Romans Chapter 14

Do Not Pass Judgment on One Another

(IN MEAT/FOOD) AND OT HOLY DAYS AS MANY WERE JEWS COMING TO SALVATION AND THEY WERE KEEPING THE MOSAIC LAW, AS JESUS DID, ETC. THIS IS NOT SPEAKING OF PASSING RIGHTEOUS JUDGMENT ON SINNERS AND FALSE TEACHERS. THIS CHAPTER IS NOT TALKING ABOUT THE PAGAN HERETICAL DAYS OF “X-MASS”, “EASTER”, ETC WHICH ARE NOT TO BE OBSERVED, EVER)


The Appalling True Meaning Of “Christ-Mass” Is a Christian to Judge Others?


HOWEVER, JUDIAZERS THAT KEEP THE MOSAIC HOLY DAYS NOW ARE IN BIG TROUBLE, CHRISTIANS ARE NOT TO KEEP THE FEAST DAYS, ETC

Should Christians Keep the Feasts? Judiazer


Rom 14:1  Him that is weak in the faith (A NEW TRUE CHRISTIAN THAT NEEDS MILK) receive ye (IN FELLOWSHIP, ETC), but not to doubtful disputations. (THIS IS NOT SPEAKING TO SIN AS WE KNOW WILLFUL SIN IS FORSAKEN AT CONVERSION, IT’S SPEAKING ABOUT THE NEW “WEAK” BELIEVER NOT BEING TRAINED IN DEEPER BIBLICAL TRUTHS, ETC. DON’T JUMP ON THEM. TEACH THEM GENTLY AND DISCIPLE THEM BIBLICALLY)

Rom 14:2  For one believeth that he may eat all things: another, who is weak, eateth herbs.

Rom 14:3  Let not him that eateth despise him that eateth not; and let not him which eateth not judge him that eateth: for God hath received him.

Rom 14:4  Who art thou that judgest another man’s servant? to his own master he standeth or falleth. Yea, he shall be holden up: for God is able to make him stand. (THIS IS SPEAKING TO THE CONVERTED JEWS AS THEIR TRADITION WAS TO KEEP THE MOSAIC LAW)

Rom 14:5  One man esteemeth one day above another: another esteemeth every day alike. Let every man be fully persuaded in his own mind. (THE LORD’S SAY, SUNDAY, IS HONORED BY ALL TRUE CHRISTIANS BUT THE OT JEWS THAT WERE CONVERTED KEPT SOME OT CUSTOMS, LET THEM BE AND GUIDE THEM GENTLY.)

Rom 14:6  He that regardeth the day, regardeth it unto the Lord; and he that regardeth not the day, to the Lord he doth not regard it. He that eateth (THE GENTILE ATE ALL MEATS), eateth to the Lord, for he giveth God thanks; and he that eateth not (BECAUSE THEY STILL BELIEVED THAT HONORED GOD), to the Lord he eateth not, and giveth God thanks.

Rom 14:7  For none of us liveth to himself, and no man dieth to himself.

Rom 14:8  For whether we live, we live unto the Lord; and whether we die, we die unto the Lord: whether we live therefore, or die, we are the Lord’s.

1st Peter 4:1-5 “Forasmuch then as Christ hath suffered for us in the flesh, ARM YOURSELVES LIKEWISE WITH THE SAME MIND: for he that hath suffered in the flesh hath CEASED FROM SIN; 2 That HE NO LONGER SHOULD LIVE the rest of his time IN THE FLESH TO THE LUSTS OF MEN, but TO THE WILL OF GOD. 3 For the time past of our life may suffice us to have wrought the will of the Gentiles, WHEN WE WALKED in lasciviousness, lusts, excess of wine, revellings, banquetings, and abominable idolatries: 4 Wherein they think it strange that ye run not with them to the same excess of riot, speaking evil of you: 5 Who shall give account to him that is ready to judge the quick and the dead.”

Rom 14:9  For to this end Christ both died, and rose, and revived, that he might be Lord both of the dead and living.

Rom 14:10  But why dost thou judge thy brother (UNRIGHTEOUSELY)? or why dost thou set at nought thy brother? for we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ.

YOU WILL SEE HERE YOU ARE COMMANDED TO JUDGE

Matthew 18:15-17 “Moreover if thy brother shall trespass against thee, go and tell him his fault between thee and him alone: if he shall hear thee, thou hast gained thy brother. 16 But if he will not hear thee, then take with thee one or two more, that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established. 17 And if he shall neglect to hear them, tell it unto the church: but if he neglect to hear the church, let him be unto thee as an heathen man and a publican.”

LOVE IS JUDGING (REBUKING OUT OF SIN). IF YOU DON’T YOU HAVE NOT LOVE BUT HATE FOR YOUR NEIGHBOUR

Leviticus 19:17 “Thou shalt NOT HATE THY BROTHER in thine heart: thou shalt in any wise REBUKE (LOVE) THY NEIGHBOUR, and NOT SUFFER (ALLOW, CONDONE, EXCUSE) SIN  upon him.”

Rom 14:11  For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.

Rom 14:12  So then EVERY ONE OF US SHALL GIVE ACCOUNT OF HIMSELF to God.

Do Not Cause Another to Stumble

Rom 14:13  Let us not therefore judge one another any more: but judge this rather, that no man put a stumblingblock or an occasion to fall in his brother’s way. (DO NOT UNRIGHTEOUSELY JUDGE)

Rom 14:14  I know, and am persuaded by the Lord Jesus, that there is nothing unclean of itself: but to him that esteemeth any thing to be unclean, to him it is unclean. (AGAIN SPEAKING ABOUT THE EARLY JEWS THAT CAME FROM THE MOSAIC LAW AND DID NOT EAT PORK, SHELLFISH, ETC)

Rom 14:15  But if thy brother be grieved with thy meat, now walkest thou not charitably. Destroy not him with thy meat, for whom Christ died.

Rom 14:16  Let not then your good be evil spoken of:

Rom 14:17  For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but RIGHTEOUSNESS, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.

Rom 14:18  For he that in these things serveth Christ is acceptable to God, and approved of men. (OF COURSE THE WORLD HATE’S TRUE CHRISTIANS BUT  THEY CAN’T ACCUSE THEM OF CRIMES, SIN, ETC)

1st Peter 4:14 “If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part he is evil spoken of, but on your part he is glorified.”

Rom 14:19  Let us therefore follow after the things which make for peace, and things wherewith one may edify another.

Rom 14:20  For meat destroy not the work of God. All things indeed are pure; but it is evil for that man who eateth with offence. (AS TO STUMBLE A WEAKER BROTHER)

Rom 14:21  It is good neither to eat flesh, nor to drink wine, nor any thing whereby thy brother stumbleth, or is offended, or is made weak.

Rom 14:22  Hast thou faith? have it to thyself before God. Happy is he that condemneth not himself in that thing which he alloweth.

Rom 14:23  And he that doubteth is damned if he eat, because he eateth not of faith: for whatsoever is not of faith is sin.” (WHATEVER IS DONE WITHOUT FULL CONVICTIONS SINFUL).

Romans 14:5 “One man esteemeth one day above another: another esteemeth every day alike. Let every man be fully persuaded in his own mind.”


Romans Chapter 15

The Example of Christ

Romans 15:1-3 “We (TRUE CHRISTIANS) then that are strong OUGHT TO BEAR THE INFIRMITIES OF THE WEAK, AND NOT TO PLEASE OURSELVES (WITH THE ENTERTAINMENTS AND EXCESS OF THE WORLD).

Rom 15:2  2 Let every one of us please his neighbour (ESPECIALLY THE BRETHREN BUT IN GENERAL TOO) for his good to edification.

Galatians 6:10 “As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.”

Rom 15:3  For even Christ pleased not himself; but, as it is written, The reproaches of them that reproached thee fell on me.

Isaiah 53:2-3 “For he (JESUS) shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, THERE IS NO BEAUTY THAT WE SHOULD DESIRE HIM (HE IS NOT THE WICKED CATHOLIC ABOMINATION WITH BLUE EYES AND SINFUL LONG HAIR AND MILKY WHITE). 3 He is DESPISED and REJECTED OF MEN; a MAN OF SORROWS, and ACQUAINTED WITH GRIEF: and we hid as it were our faces from him; HE WAS DESPISED, and we esteemed him not.”

Rom 15:4  For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope.

Rom 15:5  Now the God of patience and consolation grant you to be likeminded one toward another according to Christ Jesus:

Rom 15:6  That ye may with ONE MIND AND ONE MOUTH  glorify God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Rom 15:7  Wherefore receive ye one another, as Christ also received us to the glory of God.

Christ the Hope of Jews and Gentiles

Rom 15:8  Now I say that Jesus Christ was a minister of the circumcision for the truth of God, to confirm the promises made unto the fathers: (HE WAS BORN A JEW, KEPT ALL THE COMMANDMENTS NOT ONLY OF THE MORAL BUT THE MOSAIC LAW, ETC. HE OF COURSE IS THE MESSIAH)

Rom 15:9  And that the Gentiles might glorify God for his mercy; as it is written, For this cause I will confess to thee among the Gentiles, and sing unto thy name.

Psalm 18:49 “Therefore will I give thanks unto thee, O LORD, among the heathen (GENTILES – ALL NATIONS), and sing praises unto thy name.”

Rom 15:10  And again he saith, Rejoice, ye Gentiles, with his people.

Rom 15:11  And again, Praise the Lord, all ye Gentiles; and laud him, ALL YE PEOPLE.

Rom 15:12  And again, Esaias saith, There shall be a root (A DESCENDANT) of Jesse (KING DAVID’S FATHER) , and he that shall rise to reign over the Gentiles; in him shall the Gentiles trust.

Rom 15:13  Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye MAY ABOUND IN HOPE, through the power of the Holy Ghost.

Paul the Minister to the Gentiles

Rom 15:14  And I myself also am persuaded of you (BELIEVING GENTILES), my brethren, that ye also are full of goodness, filled with all knowledge, ABLE TO ADMONISH (WARN) ONE ANOTHER.

Proverbs 27:17 “Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend.”

Rom 15:15  Nevertheless, brethren, I have written the MORE BOLDLY (AS THE INSTRUCTOR OF THE GENTILE BRETHREN) unto you in some sort, as putting you in mind, because of the grace that is given to me of God,

Rom 15:16  That I should be the minister of Jesus Christ to the Gentiles, ministering the gospel of God, that the offering up of the Gentiles MIGHT BE ACCEPTABLE, being sanctified by the Holy Ghost.

Rom 15:17  I have therefore whereof I may glory through Jesus Christ in those things which pertain to God.

Rom 15:18  For I will not dare to speak of any of those things which Christ hath not wrought by me (CAREFUL TO SPEAK THE WHOLE BIBLICAL TRUTH. NOTHING MORE, NOTHING LESS), (WHY?) TO MAKE THE GENTILES OBEDIENT, BY WORD AND DEED (TO EXHORT THEM TO OBEY KING JESUS ANY WAY AT HIS DISPOSAL),

Rom 15:19  Through mighty signs and wonders, by the power of the Spirit of God; so that from Jerusalem, and round about unto Illyricum, I have fully preached the gospel of Christ.

Rom 15:20  Yea, so have I strived (AGONIZED) to preach the gospel, not where Christ was named (WHERE THE GOSPEL WAS NOT PREACHED BEFORE), lest I should build upon another man’s foundation: (PAUL WAS PARTICULARLY CALLED TO FOUND CHURCHES)

Rom 15:21  But as it is written, To whom he was not spoken of, they shall see: and they that have not heard shall understand. (THE GLORIOUS GOSPEL)

NOAH ALSO WAS A “PREACHER OF RIGHTEOUSNESS”

2nd Peter 2:4-6 “For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but CAST THEM DOWN TO HELL, and delivered them into CHAINS OF DARKNESS, to be reserved unto JUDGMENT; 5 And spared not the old world, but saved NOAH THE EIGHT PERSON, A PREACHER OF RIGHTEOUSNESS, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly (SINNERS); 6 And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an (ENSAMPLE) unto those that after SHOULD LIVE UNGODLY (IN WILLFUL SIN).”

Paul’s Plan to Visit Rome

Rom 15:22  For which cause also I have been much hindered from coming to you. (PAUL WAS INCREDIBLY BUSY IN OTHER AREAS OF HIS MINISTRY)

Rom 15:23  But now having no more place in these parts, and having a great desire these many years to come unto you; (HE HAS SUCCESSFULLY FULFILLED HIS MISSION TO FOUND CHURCHES AND APPOINT ELDERS HE WAS READY TO MOVE ON)

Act 20:17 “And from Miletus he sent to Ephesus, and called the elders of the church.”

Rom 15:24  Whensoever I take my journey into Spain, I will come to you: for I trust to see you in my journey, and to be brought on my way thitherward by you, if first I be somewhat filled with your company. (ANCIENT SPAIN WAS THE KINGDOMS OF SPAIN & PORTUGAL SO HIS NEXT MISSION WAS TO PREACH IN AS MUCH AS THAT AREA AS POSSIBLE STOPPING IN ROME)

Rom 15:25  But now I go unto Jerusalem to minister unto the saints. (EDIFYING THE SAINTS AS EXPLAINED BELOW)

Rom 15:26  For it hath pleased them of Macedonia and Achaia to make a certain contribution for the poor saints which are at Jerusalem. (ALL FAITHFUL SAINTS CONTRIBUTE THE THOSE WHO HAVE LESS)

Acts 2:44-47 “And ALL THAT BELIEVED WERE TOGETHER, and HAD ALL THINGS IN COMMON (COMMUNITY); 45 And SOLD THEIR POSSESSIONS AND GOODS (NON-NECESSITIES), and PARTED THEM TO ALL MEN, AS EVERY MAN HAD NEED. 46 And they, CONTINUING DAILY IN ONE ACCORD in the temple, and BREAKING BREAD FROM HOUSE TO HOUSE, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart, 47 Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved.”

Rom 15:27  It hath pleased them verily; and their debtors they are. For if the Gentiles have been made partakers of their spiritual things, their duty is also to minister unto them in carnal things. (FOOD, SHELTER, WATER)

CHRISTIAN CHARITY OR ETERNAL PUNISHMENT

Matthew 25:41-46 “Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into EVERLASTING FIRE, prepared for the devil and his angels: 42 For I was an hungred, and YE GAVE ME NO MEAT (FOOD): I was thirsty, and YE HAVE ME NO DRINK: 43 I was a stranger, and YE TOOK ME NOT IN: naked, and YE CLOTHED ME NOT: sick, and in prison, and YE VISITED ME NOT . 44 Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and DID NOT MINISTER UNTO THEE? 45 Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, INASMUCH AS YE DID IT NOT TO ONE OF THE LEAST OF THESE, YE DID IT NOT TO ME. 46 And these shall go away into EVERLASTING PUNISHMENT: but the RIGHTEOUS into LIFE ETERNAL.”

Rom 15:28  When therefore I have performed this, and have sealed (SECURED) to them this fruit (THE GENEROSITY OF THE GENTILE CHURCH), I will come by you into Spain.

Rom 15:29  And I am sure that, when I come unto you, I shall come in the fulness of the blessing of the gospel of Christ. (TO MINISTER AND PREACH THE GOSPEL)

Rom 15:30  Now I beseech you, brethren, for the Lord Jesus Christ’s sake, and for the love of the Spirit, that ye STRIVE TOGETHER with me in your prayers to God for me;

Rom 15:31  That I may be delivered from them that do not believe in Judaea; and that my service which I have for Jerusalem may be accepted of the saints; (THE UNBELIEVING JEWS HATED PAUL – ACTS 21)

Rom 15:32  That I may come unto you with joy by the will of God, and may with you be refreshed. (HOW WONDERFUL IS IT TO FELLOWSHIP WITH THE TRUE BRETHREN)

Rom 15:33  Now the God of peace be with you all. Amen.”


Romans Chapter 16

Personal Greetings

Rom 16:1  I commend unto you Phebe our sister (A MEMBER OF THE CHRISTIAN CHURCH), which is a servant of the church which is at Cenchrea: (A WOMAN SERVANT IN THE GREEK MEANS ONE WHOSE BUSINESS IT WAS TO HELP THE FEMALE CONVERTS AT BAPTISM, TO VISIT THE SICK AND THOSE IN PRISON AND TO PERFORM THE RELIGIOUS DUTIES FOR THE FEMALE PART OF THE CHURCH WHICH COULD NOT WITH PROPRIETY BE PERFORMED BY MEN)

Rom 16:2  That ye receive her in the Lord, as becometh saints, and that ye assist her in whatsoever business she hath need of you: for she hath been a succourer (HELPER) of many, and of myself also.
