The following exposition on the Roman Letter chapters 1-8 goes indepth on the subjects of Justification and Sanctification by the Grace of God. There are so many people in the religious world today that will agree on the first five chapters of Romans as it teaches how the Grace of God can justify a sinner. A discrepancy comes in on the 6th, 7th, and 8th chapter of Romans when the Apostle Paul clairifies how Sanctification by the Grace of God can rid the saint (which is a believer in Christ) from the still existing carnal nature. This Bible truth is not taught anymore as people dodge the issue of being rid of the carnal nature and the Adamic life…by the Sanctifying power of the Baptism with the Holy Ghost and fire. Many agree on the fact that a sinner must be born of Spirit…but only few agree on the fact that the Bible teaches that a child of God can be delivered from the carnal nature. This operation of Sanctification is still by the Grace of God but not upon a sinner…but upon the believer who has the old Adam still trying to rule that life. Romans teaches full Salvation and full deliverance from the Adamic Life. That is the intent behind this Blog.
Romans 1-5 teaches how men were justified by the Grace of God from the days of Abel, Noah, Abraham, after the giving of Law, and now today in the Church. (present tense)
Romans 6 teaches how the believer in Christ (a member of the Church) can be rid of the still existing Adamic life.
Romans 7 teaches about how men under Law still had a struggle going on with the Adamic Life. As mentioned by the Apostle in verses 4 and 5… “when we were in the flesh”. Romans seven teaches a comparison of how a man under Law struggled to keep Law…without the Grace of God!
Romans 8 teaches how the righteousness of the Law can be “fulfilled in us”…by the sanctifying power of the Grace of God. Romans 8 teaches how the believer in Christ is “rid” of the Adamic Life. Romans 8 shows that a believer in Christ can be completely delivered from the Adamic life. Romans 8 teaches full and complete sanctification…not the process.
I took the liberty to post a sermon from Youtube actually an audio/video was made at a Bible Study at the Upper Room (12-17-2009) by this writer who is also pastor of that Church. By the Grace of God and the ministry of the Holy Spirit we were able to capture from our service and show the beautiful distinction between Justification for the sinner and Sanctification Entire for the believer in Christ. This overview of the Roman Letter was expounded on and kept in context for the edification and perfection of the saints for the work of the ministry per Ephesians 4.
Glory to Christ who makes it all possible to capture these wonderful teachings. Glory the Christ who makes it possible not only to preserve but to also publicize these teachings of God’s Word across the nation and world by the Internet! Glory to Christ who affects and changes peoples hearts and lives by the Grace of God! Glory to Christ! Glory to Christ! Hallelujah!
As a servant for Christ, minister of the Gospel for 24 years, and pastor at the Upper Room… I have studied, researched, and preached this material since the day Christ baptized me with the Holy Ghost and fire in 1988. To be honest I have have every note from every Bible Study I have ever collected since the beginning of my Salvation and Sanctification. I have been writing for Christ since those days also. If you care to hear this audio in it’s entirety it can also be viewed at the following link.
God bless you. I love you all at Christian Blessings.
