Paul, a servant of Christ Jesus, called to be an aplostle, set apart for the gospel of God, which he promised beforehand through his prophets in the holy scripture, concerning his son, who was descended from David according to the flesh and was declared to be the son of GOD in power according to the Spirit of holiness be his resurrection from the dead, Jesus Christ our lord, through whom we have received grace and Apostleship to bring the obedience of faith god the sake of His name among all the nations, including you who are called to belong to Jesus Christ.
There is so much to say about this scripture. The main thing that sticks out is the obedience of Faith. Does he not say that do not worry about tomorrow for today has its own troubles?
According to the holiness of spirit! It’s the obedience of faith. What is faith? It’s believing in things that are not seen. It’s knowing and trusting the Spirit that lies within you, it’s the sound mind to know that everything works for those who love GOD whole heartedly. What about my daughter.
Melissa only you can change that. Well that’s why o am writing about Romans tonight. Ok than do it. Stop thinking about what you will write what comes to mind talk only about what’s in your heart and not your mind. Ok father
I’m so sad for my daughter! Who already has gone through so much. To be put in another situation from another insecure women. I can’t judge because I’ve been there. However I think at that age Omgosh she must be pushing 60. I have to get my daughter out of there because as usual dad is choosing a women and money over everything. He doesn’t live Linda just like he didn’t love us while he was choosing. He was selfish! And I am selfish! 🤬 these are the generational curses that are being talked about in the Bible! It doesn’t necessarily have to be about addiction to substance of some kind. It is so much more than that. It’s the behaviors that are displayed down to the bone of negligence down to distorted thinking, to lowering yourself to nothing in which you are everything because you are the key! You are the one to do it! You and only you who can make it better!
First, I thank my GOD, through Jesus Christ for all of you, because your faith is proclaimed in all the world.
In this journey of faith, taking 2 mayor leaps about to make a third. First quitting my Job of 7 1/2 years to go for my dream. It’s been a ride for the last 5 years 5 months and 28 days today. Second leap moving to a city where I know nobody, no job lined out no place to live just left a place as I knew as my home of over 30 years.
Man I’m old! Geez 😊 with that being said I’ll be here building a new home for my daughter my dad and my own family with a husband I’m sure eventually. Moving Forward.
I do not want you to be unaware, brothers that I have often intended to come to you (but thus far have been prevented), in order that I may reap some harvest among you as well as among the rest of the Gentiles. Romans 1:13
I am under obligation both to Greeks and to the barBarians both to the wise and to the foolish. Romans 1:14
So I am what to preach the gospel to you. Says the teacher of Romans.
I really like Romans because it talks about the pieces of the mind that we don’t understand. It talks about the feelings that we feel as being human. I mean we are human. Even tho it says in Mathew that we are to be perfect! We aren’t. We are beings.
Now look at it this way. The way GOD Went through Paul because Paul was a faithful follower and was made Perfect in GODS eyes because he found his Purpose. Not for people to judge him, in which they did.
However, Romans focuses on why we do thing that we don’t want to do. It focuses and kind of confusing of why the mind works the way it works. Moving forward.
For in it the righteousness of GOD is revealed faith for faith, as it is written, “The righteous shall live by faith. Romans 1:17
Now to me that doesn’t say the righteous is a fool or even a wise man to me it says the righteous is a person of faith for faith.
With that being said it means a state of being. State of the mind that is of faith For faith. Very important to understand that. Especially in the book of Romans.
For the wrath of GOD is revealed from heaven against ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their righteousness suppressed the truth. For what can be known about GOD is plain to them, because GOD has shown it to them. Romans 8:18-19
Again he is talking about the righteous not the wise nor the fool he is talking about the state of being of faith. The being of faith with ultimately becomes a state of mind.
For his invisible attributes, namely his eternal power and divine nature, have clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things, that have been made. So they are without excuse. Romans 1:20
So this is what I’m experiencing now. The only thing that is strengthening me is GOD and my Faith. He’s saying that you cannot have an excuse because I’ve already told you. So the frame of mind that I’m experiencing now is on the verge of making me indefinitely. I’ve seen it. I read a proverb the day before yesterday that says something along the lines of broken beyond repair which means indefinitely. Do I think he will do this to me he says no! Because of my faith. My love for others and really ultimately I am one with him. Nothing can change that nor break that no matter what any does to me.
So much contradiction in the above statement. Yes I read this do I think that he’s doing this now will it happen no! Ugggggg. Isn’t that the way the Bible is. It says this and than that total contradiction in a lot of areas of the Bible. I can’t tell you were exactly I just know that there is because of the personal relationship that people in the Bible have with GOD! They were everything that we are now just in a different time different setting yet same behaviors and actions that were here in ADAM and EVE.
With that said it says the foundation of this earth is FAITH yet not even our leaders of the churches have it. So how can we fully understand the mind and our own actions with in breaking the 10 Commandments which is also the foundation that leads to faith through the Love of others.
Said to be faith and said to be love. In which is the 10 Commandments. It says:
Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on a rock. Matthew 7:24.
If you know the 10 Commandments you would say how is that humanly possible to obey. Right?!? Theoretically speaking No! So then how can anyone expect another person to be perfect. You can’t.
Again then the only way to eliminate the thinking of this world is to have the state OF mind Of faith for faith.
For although they knew GOD, they did not honor him or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened. Claiming to be wise, they became fools, and exchanged the glory of the immortal GOD for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and creepy things. Romans 1:21-23
Its the negative thinking that honestly in every aspect of our lives that makes us or breaks us. Right? So what the Father is saying is that when you can take that turn and just trust than the thinking positive arises and then of course Faith. With that being said my friends the state of being of faith is crucial to all decisions based on behaviors. We soon will get into that.
See my friends. It’s the mind that controls all things. It’s what we tell ourselves. It’s the habits that are formed into behaviors over tome through generation to generation. This is what makes us who we are. We are all sons and daughters of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
Claiming to be wise they became fools in their own thinking constantly complaining or blaming one another for their actions. Instead of thanking GOD for all that he has done for you you put the blame him on him after blaming everyone bur yourself for your own stuff.
What happens to you in between you and GOD how you handle the situation obviously determines the outcome. However, it also determines your character of yourself and is it a character of GOD.
Therefore GOD gave them up in the lists of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, because they exchanged the truth about GOD for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen! Romans 1:24-25
And since they did not see fit to acknowledge GOD, GOD gave them up to debased mind to do not what our to be done. Romans 1:28
With this said GOD said I gave you free will so do what you do. He put them aside and moved to the next person that actually wanted to honor him and not the creature. Which could be of another human being. He goes on to talk about them sexual side of life of men giving into men and women women. Then he says how evil that it. They have become
They were filled with all manner of unrighteousness, evil, convetousness, malice. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, maliciousness. They are gossips, slanders, haters of GOD, insolent, haughty, boastful,inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless. Romans 1:29-30
This is another part of understanding GOD and the way he thinks. Because aren’t all people at one time or another displaying this kind of feelings and actions towards one another at some point. Of course as you get older you want to be better so you get better. However it is that you do that. This is another reason why wise is no better than the fool and vise versa. We are all the same in some way shape of form unless you obey all 10 Commandments and have FAITH. Remember the state of mind of your being is faith.
Point being is that it’s not just the man liking the man or the women the women it’s the also the wise and the fool. Instead of judging you leave all things to him. For all things come from him and the stare of mind that he will judge them along with the fool and the wise. Moving forward.
Therefore you have no excuse, o man, everyone who judges. For in passing judgement on another you are condemning yourself, because you, practice the very same Things. Romans 2:1
It’s the behaviors they GOD is talking about. Haters of GOD, envoy, strife, malice murder, gossiping ETC… Instead of leaving things to GOD. You take it upon yourself and do exactly what others are doing. It’s the state of Mind of Faith that is they key here. It’s not easy. In fact faith is the hardest spiritual discipline one can achieve, maybe even the greatest success one can have.
We know that the judgement of GOD rightly falls on those who practices such things. Do you suppose, O man,- you who judge those that practice such things and yet do them yourself that you will escape the judgement of GOD? Or do you presume of the riches of his kindness and forbearance and patience is ment to lead you to repentance? Romans 2:4
For one it should be in daily prayer father please forgive me of all my sins. Why? Because we are sinners. No matter who you are or what walk of life your in. We are all sinners. Just as a new day is a new day. We shall pray it everyday to be forgiven to keep your heart clear from being sick and opened to a new way of thinking in which is faith.
But because of your hard and impenitent heart you are storing up wrath for yourself on the day of wrath when GODS righteous judgement will be revealed. He will render to each one according to his works: to those who by patience in well-doing will seek for glory and honor and immortality, he will give eternal life; but those who are self-seeking and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, there will be wrath and furry. Romans 2:5-9
Now, this is where the 10 Commandments would come in as said before. Doesn’t he show us his wrath here on earth. With the things that we do in our lives daily. Envious of others, strife, deceit, any kind of addiction, being boastful, lovers of money, and the lost can go on and on. So here on earth he will make things rough for us because of the intention of the heart.
Now, I know this first and foremost. Maybe thinking that in intention was good and really my heart was saying something different. I’ve been so selfish in a way that I don’t even understand. I’ve never had problems showing love giving love, not learning being stuck in some kind of addiction. I’ve never been not able to over come something. I’ve been strong my whole life. I’ve taken care of people including myself. I don’t know why I act the way I act some times. And I’m sure that I’m not the only one who feels this way.
I’ve thrown out all of my past which is very lengthy. Some my own doing and a lot of not my doing. He has taught me to forgive and to forgive myself. He’s taught me to me a women of Faith for sure. He had made it hard on me to get me to understand. Examples homelessness, broke all the time not having food, clothing like all the things that one needs yet he has always provided.
With that said, will I go to Heaven yes. Everyone has a place in heaven. It’s when you get there what’s next. Is it eternal life living like kings and queens for everyone? Or do you come back reincarnated or born of the spirit or soul of another person based on the way you lived here on earth before your silver cord snapped?
Questions that I cannot answer. They are questions that I ask myself. So when GOD talks about Eternal life he talks about what kind of person you are. What did you do to be kind to one another, thankful all the time. Did you love anything more than him, where you full of malice, slanderous of another person. Did you gossip or steal or whatever. All of it determines who we are as people and that’s what makes Eternal Life. These are also obeying the 10 Commandments.
The only way to learn these things is to start being aware of your thinking. Your thinking is what control what you speak and your actions. This is another reason why I like Romans. From the beginning of the book that’s the focus.
There will be tribulation and distress for every human being who does evil, the Jew first and also the Greek, but glory and honor and peace for everyone who does good, the Jew first then also the Greek. Romans 2:9-10
It’s written right here and in scripture above my friends. How can we blame GOD for the things that happen in our life? If you are blaming GOD for anything it’s because you don’t know what to do to obey him. You may think that just because your not addicted to a drug or some kind of substance than things are great and that’s why your not obeying.
No that’s not the way it works. Perhaps you are displaying another form of behavior that is not pleasing, such as anger, watching porn, over eating loving something else more than you love GOD! It’s the same. No sin is greater than any other, and said before who can you judge. You can’t for you are a sinner. Not only that just like GOD does things to get the attention of what you would say a homeless person or a addict of some sort. He does it too, with the being who does what I just talked about about.
It’s the wise the fool, the righteous the unrighteous, the homeless guy, the over eater it’s everyone my friends. So important to understand this. When you do you start thinking of one with the mind of GOD. That’s when your Faith starts to build.
Ask yourself what in your life are you doing that GOD is trying to get your attention in? It simply could be one thought pattern that’s been passed down. It’s not your fault it’s just tile to look at it differently because you are made for so much more.
For GOD shows no partiality. 😢 Romans 2:11
Now this verse makes me tear up. It hits me hard in my chest because I did everything he told me to do as far as my mind goes. He completely restored my thinking and I listened! It wasn’t easy to get into the mindset of forgiveness to the man that took my daughters life. It wasn’t easy to be loving and kind to my mother after all that she’s done or said, it wasn’t easy to have the mindset of forgiveness for myself, it wasn’t easy to have the mindset to keep living when I have never truly been loved by anyone accept my kids, and GOD. It’s not east to change your thinking to not want to do things that no longer serve you. It’s not easy to have the mindset and keep it that way. Then there’s my dad. Which is a whole other mindset. I’m I innocent in the things that I have done no I’m not.
However most people if put in my shoes would not make it as far as I have. Most people haven’t even experienced the things that I have experienced in 3 life times. I’m grateful for GOD and what he has shown me there are times that I feel like I’m not like most people. So I think he should show me Partiality. I know that’s not the right way to think. I know that I’m really no body special because I did what I was suppose to do. So why would or should I be rewarded for that.
Just like it’s the thinking of the person who thinks they are wise when in fact o a fool, the righteous and the unrighteous or the person who think they don’t sin or stands themself in judgement. Right?
So with that said just like there is no sin greater than any sin GOD shows no partiality. So… I just have to keep being grateful and stand in Faith like he taught me. Wants to teach you. It’s ok if I’m sad about that it’s my relationship with him. He comforts me. It’s ok.
For all who have sinned without the law will perish without the law, and all who have sinned under the law will be judged with the Law. For it is not the heaters of the law who are righteous before GOD, but the diets of the law who will be justified. Romans 2:12-13
My extraordinary friends! The law is the Commandments. I cannot stress that enough.
When GOD made Spiritual Warfare I had no idea what the deal was going to be. I had no idea what it all entailed. I didn’t know that I had distillates thinking fir one. And I definitely didn’t think I could become a better person because I didn’t know that I was a bad person. We only know what we have been taught. Yeah I need I had some addiction problems however never thought of myself had being a bad person.
Kinda to shorten this a little bit. Over the 5 years he taught me the new way of thinking them when I went to jail for the 6 months everything fell into place. He then showed me the 10 Commandments. It all made sense then because he taught me the new way of thinking without knowing what the commandments were. Honestly it was awesome to realize that. I read them and then thought WHAT!
Because of the way he taught me. Then it dawned on me the whole original saying of Spiritual Warfare. My very first website on Wix. Motto, Helping people find their purpose in life by changing the way you think. In jail the light bulb went off. I read and read in fact this is where this Bible came from. I didn’t say in and day out most of the time reading and writing in it. I wanted to learn more of proverbs because he used proverbs a lot on this journey. He used Ecclesiastes years ago however was a must read over again.
With that said the 10 Commandments are vital. That’s the law! It’s the Moral Law it’s the Law of Love and it’s the law of Faith.
For all that have sinned with out the law will perish, to the unbeliever! To all that have sinned UNDER the law. Meaning knowing yet not knowing because your heart ya yelping you to change however you don’t know how because you are under the law yet don’t know the law.
They show that the work of the law is written on their hearts, while their conscience also bears witness, and their conflicting thoughts accuse or even excuse them on that day when, according to my gospel, GOD judges the secrets of men by Christ Jesus. But if you call yourself a Jew and rely on the law and boast in GOD and know his will and approve what is excellent, because you are instructed by the law; and if you are sure that you yourself are a guide to the blind, a light to those who live in darkness an instructor of the foolish, a teacher of children, having in the law the embodiment of knowledge and truth- you then who teach others do you not teach yourself? While you preach against stealing, do you steal? Romans 2:15-21
Again this all comes from the way we think, yet our hearts are telling us something different. If your heart and your pattern of thinking is off, your life is probably a mess.
It says in John 6:6-16 that Satan has come and stole the thoughts of mankind. That the world will remedy Jesus instead of Satan. How does this happen. It happens by what we feed our brain. To much TV video games, all the negative people that is around, complaining all the time. Not smiling being over dramatic, drugs alcohol everything that yo love more than GOD.
As scripture says it is already written in your heart. You already know what his will is for you. You know that you will be a teacher, a preacher, anything it’s whatever your heart says. It’s written there. It’s the sin that we hold inside that keeps us stuck. That’s what it is.
I didn’t work Spiritual Warfare for a very long time because I felt like if I did I would be a hypocrite. So I would not do anything with it. How can I do and preach the word one I didn’t know it, 2 I was using and drinking, full of anger, distrust smoking the list goes on and on. There are so many people who do that in which they do themselves. I just couldn’t do it. It would defeat the whole purpose of being authentic and the purpose of Spiritual Warfare. Besides he was teaching me faith.
So doing what you know to be doing under the law and in your purpose of teaching and not doing it is a sin! I’m guilty of this here. I mean if I come across someone who needs me then of course I’ll do whatever I can to help them. Maybe some can relate to that too. There’s more to it. It’s a calling on your life to either make a difference or make money or both. That’s between you and GOD.
So now would be the time to ask the question what has my heart been saying to me? What do I spend a lot of time thinking about however no action? What do you say to a friend or stranger in need? If you do teach them something are you doing it too? Or are you telling them not to do something that your doing? It makes all the difference in your thinking and ultimately who you are. Are you treating someone different even tho you have been in their shoes yet you find yourself judging while helping? It not helping at all. See there are so many different Laws, and ways of thinking that the only way to overcome any of this is to become in one mind and that’s through Jesus Christ in which is GOD. And even then you have to maintain that mindset. Which is hard because when you reach that point there is so many not only energies however people that come against you and it’s even harder at times. Just speaking truth.
You who say that one must not commit adultery, do you not commit adultery? You who are abhor idols, do you rob temples? Romans 2:22
Do you not know that looking at another man or women is committing adultery? When you look at another women’s body or man’s body that is bringing lust to your heart because of looking that is commuting adultery? Are you not familiar with the law? If the Laws are made for ya to sin then what would be the next step. Forgiveness everyday in prayer of sins as well has building faith. Trusting right? Believing in the energy of a GOD instead of the outside energy of gossipers. Can you not make your own decision must you be validated by someone else rather than by GOD . GOD gives an answer and you have to ask a human? What power would the human hold? Only the power that you think that human knows to validate what you are saying. Breaking the 7th Commandment. Gossiping!
But a Jew is one inwardly, and circumcision is a matter of the heart, not by the spirit, not by the letter. His praise is not from man but from GOD. Romans 2:29.
Now I would I ask myself in these first two chapters of Romans. Do I know what the 10 commandments are? Do I understand truly what the Law is? Am I really treating people the way GOD would? Do I understand the meaning the pure faith? Probably not for most! That’s to come. Am I being aware of my thoughts and which way they are going? It’s very important to understand that everything comes from GOD.
Please leave me a comment.
Always Much love my friends, 😊🙏😊😇
