Romans chapter 1 commentary

This book is one of the most important in the whole bible . As the experience righteousness by faith is so misunderstood by even many people that claim to be saved by faith . How can one believe they are saved by faith, and the next sentence say they are saved by works also? It is a great misunderstanding of knowing how to read the bible correctly . We are saved by faith, yet our faith will show works.

Yet those who do works to be saved do them by selfish purpose s and they cannot be accepted by God . We see here that this topic is immensely important to understand . Romans chapter 1 commentary O that fantastic book of Romans and Galatians. The polars of righteousness, the bible books that help you receive conversion, that help you become converted. Let us understand conversion is a rare experience.

RO 11 6 “And if by grace, then is it no more of 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.”

If we are saved by works, then we are no more saved by grace. I always said that those apparent contradiction in the bible, God put them there for a good reason. It is a test to see if we are going to be honest or not. All honest people will tell themselves. Look it says we are saved by works also. What does it mean ? Can two things be true at the same time ? No then what is the solution . Then we study further the bible and God can if He wills the answer.

In Romans chapter 1 commentary we find out that we cannot be saved by works and grace at the same time . As the light cannot be green and red at the same time . Someone cannot be married and single at the same time . Honesty in reading the bible prayerfully is very important or we can twist the Scriptures to our own destruction.

2 PE 3 16 as also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction

RO 1 1 Paul, a servant of Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle, separated unto the gospel of God,

From what was Paul separated from ? Paul was separated from the wordly selfish purposes. It does not mean that Paul did not work . But Paul s min mission was to help others learn and understand the bible and the theme that we are saved by faith, through belief in the death of Jesus on the cross.

That our works are not of ourselves, they are even prepared before the foundation of the world . In Romans chapter 1 commentary we see that Paul was separated from the sins of the age that the Christian world even today is blind to and does not know which they are. Such as selfishness, dishonesty, pride, arrogance, unloving, unking spirit, apathy and the like which are total opposite to Jesus meek and lowly character.

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

This gospel we find in the old testament . It is stunning that most Christians today believe that the old testament is no longer valid . This is not true here it says that the gospel of Jesus dying on the cross was promised and talked about by the prophets of the old testament. The bible says that the things that were written before in the old testament are for our learning. Jesus said that we should read Daniel which is found in the old testament .

Jesus said that people read the Scriptures which give testimony of Himself. In Jesus times there was no new testament . Jesus says that the old testament bear witness of Himself . In Romans chapter 1 commentary we find out that the old and new testament form one book, one revelation without division or separation .

RO 15 4 For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through the endurance taught in the Scriptures and the encouragement they provide we might have hope. JN 5 39 39 You search the Scriptures because you think that in them you have eternal life; and it is they that bear witness about me.

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

In Romans chapter 1 commentary, we find that the message of the bible is about Jesus who loved you so much that He preferred to die rather than have you be destroyed for eternity . This amazing love is found when Jesus died on the cross. His blood made atonement for your sins . Believing in this sacrifice for you by faith , you receive salvation . You are saved without the works of the law. It does not mean that we do not do things for God and others. It means the intention of our works are not to be saved but because we love God and others.

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

Jesus is God . Jesus took on the appearance of a men so that his perfect life could bring forgiveness to all . Jesus appeared in the old testament as the Angel of the Lord. Jesus is not an angel, but God . An angel means a messenger . This appellation the Angel of the Lord, capital letter, refers to Jesus when he appeared to Abraham Ge 18, Moses in burning bush, Sanson parents and others. Jesus is God like the Father and the Holy Spirit are.

RO 1 5 By whom we have received grace and apostleship, for obedience to the faith among all nations, for his name:

This does not mean that people in the old testament were saved by works. They were saved by faith also . But since Jesus died on the cross, the sacrifice has become real and we do not have to make sacrifices in faith of a Messiah to come . Jesus already died and we have grace.

RO 1 6 Among whom are ye also the called of Jesus Christ: RO 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.

Jesus had his followers in pagan Rome. This is why the gospel went to all the world in one generation . Paul says that the gospel was preached to all the world in one generation without television or internet.

In Romans chapter 1 commentary we find that a great problem with modern Christianity is that most Christians are congregated in the same place, the American continent. No wonder that the truth is not going to the ends of the world . Most countries have no Christians and nobody to preach the truth . This is why the churches are dying spiritual,and the world is dying spiritually also without the knowledge of the love of Jesus for them .

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

Faith comes by hearing, very likely the Romans church were great bible students. They had faith in the midst of a pagan world. This most Christians would find hard to do without the comforts of being around many other believers. This step of faith is very important when led by God to grow your faith in Jesus and know how to stand without so many other believers around you .

RO 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;

Paul had many churches to take care of, yet his love for them was so great that he did not thi
