Israel's Problem

This twenty-fifth message from Romans reveals Israel's problem. The nation was UNWORTHY of the privileges -9-1-5- and promises -9-6-13- that God had given them. They were attempting to hold God accountable for wrong decisions - He was showing injustice in His character, and His choices were those of a dictator. So, Paul exalts God's ability as the one who does not depend on Moses the lawgiver, nor on the mighty Pharaoh to carry out His wishes. It is clear that God alone has authority to show mercy to the righteous or to harden the ungodly. The nation of Israel was also UNSUCCESSFUL because they contended with God, contradicting His authority to make decisions. God's ability shined as He endured vessels of wrath -unbelieving Jews-, so that he might reveal the evidence of His riches upon vessels of mercy -mixed believers-. God can be held accountable for right decisions - some Gentiles shall be called sons of the living God, and a remnant of Jews will ultimately be saved.

Israel's Problem

Israel's Promises

This twenty-fourth message from Romans reinforces God's faithfulness to Israel. Some claimed that God has rejected His chosen people, but Paul proved that they were wrong with two examples- PROMISE -1 was fulfilled in that Sarah had a son - God's covenant was established through Isaac -Gen. 17-21-. Paul clarified that God's relationship with Israel was spiritual, not just physical - not simply through the flesh, but through this promise. PROMISE -2 was fulfilled in that the older -greater- twin was to serve the younger -lesser- twin - God's election -choosing- of Jacob was predetermined, and God's calling -invitation to serve- to Jacob was full of blessings, not based on character or conduct. The elevation of Jacob was due to God's focused blessings, devotion and preference - the demotion of Esau was due to God's determined restraint, neglect and disregard.

Israel's Promises

Israel's Position

This twenty-third message from Romans begins a series of nine sermons on the nation of Israel. Paul begins with his CONCERN for his brethren, who are Israelites. He honestly reveals his heart, exposing his heartache over their rejection of the Messiah, and his loving holdout as he wishes to trade places with them, taking their curse on him. Their CREDENTIALS reveal special privileges that should have led them to salvation. These privileges involved- -1- unique relationships - they were God's chosen, God's children and had God's presence- -2- unique responsibilities - they were to obey God's warranties, follow God's wisdom and only worship God- and -3- unique rights - they were given God's pledges, God's patriarchs and God's pre-eminence through the Christ.

Israel's Position

Triumph of Believers

This twenty-second message from Romans closes off Paul's section on the sanctification of God's children. He is confident of that all believers will be conformed to the image of Jesus Christ, because of God's SOVEREIGNTY -ultimate control over all-. Though God allows free will, at the same time, He cooperates with us, actively assisting in all things for our good -benefit-. Two parts are vital in this process- -1- our devotion to God - that we are consistently loving Him- and -2- our direction from God - that we are daily being invited to serve Him. The goal of this relationship is conformity to His Son - transformation of our souls toward Christlikeness. This process confirms our SECURITY in Christ - we can never lose our salvation because of Him. This is seen in three ways- -1- the verdict - that God is for us, so who can be against us- -2- the vindication - that God has justified us, so who can bring a charge to condemn us- and -3- the victory - that we overwhelmingly conquer in ...

Triumph of Believers

Guarantee of Glory

This twenty-first message from Romans focuses on the hope of our glorification. Though facing great afflictions, the anticipation of CREATION is that it will be set free from corruption in the new earth, so it eagerly longs and waits for the sons of God to be manifested -physically unveiled- first. Creation had been adjudicated -sentenced- to vanity and emptiness in the curse - a severe limitation from its original design. But liberation is coming, when it will be set free from its corruption. In the mean-time, it is lamenting, suffering the pains of childbirth with great groaning. All CHRISTIANS also groan - though they have the first fruits of the Spirit -having been justified and being sanctified-, they groan, waiting for their adoption as sons, the redemption of their bodies -to be glorified-. Their assurance of deliverance is based on the confident expectation of salvation, and thus in this confident hope they eagerly wait on God. Meanwhile, the Holy Spirit gives critical assis...

Guarantee of Glory

Sanctification by the Spirit (2)

This twentieth message from Romans reminds us as believers that in the process of sanctification, we are responsible to let the Holy Spirit lead. Our SALVATION places us under obligation as debtors to the Spirit - we are to be putting to death the deeds of the flesh. Walking by the flesh only brings death -separation-, but walking by the Spirit always brings life -satisfaction-. This relationship requires daily SURRENDER because we are the sons of God - descendants who have been born into God's family. We are totally dependent, not fearing in a spirit of slavery, but trusting our Father in a spirit of adoption. Our STATUS testifies that we are children of God, and as children our titles give us the position as heirs of God and fellow-heirs with Christ. But the path to receiving this position is one of suffering.

Sanctification by the Spirit (2)

Sanctification by the Spirit

This nineteenth message from Romans celebrates our spiritual victory. Paul points out that we have been given FREEDOM in Christ - He is our protection from judgment -no condemnation for believers- and He is our provision in fulfilling the Law -He condemned sin in the flesh-. The FOCUS of our minds must now be on Christ. Believers, unlike unbelievers, have two choices- set your mind on the flesh, the physical- or set your mind on the Spirit, the spiritual. But these choices have consequences- the mind set on the flesh leads to death -spiritual separation-- the mind set on the Spirit leads to life and peace -spiritual satisfaction-. Recognize that the mind set on the flesh brings conflict- both discord with God and disapproval from God. Finally, genuine believers will FINISH in three ways- -1- having justification because the Spirit of God dwells in us- -2- being sanctified because our spirit is alive and we are living righteously- and -3- being glorified when the Holy Spirit gives li...

Sanctification by the Spirit

The Struggle with the Flesh

This eighteenth message from Romans reveals Paul's personal struggle with sin, because of his own body. He had explained that the way out of bondage to the Law was through one's death -7-1-6-, and that there was no problem with the Law, because it was only holy, righteous and good -7-7-12-. He now shares that though he died to the Law there is still a battle between his new nature -spiritually righteous- and his old body -physically evil- -7-13-25-. In Paul's FIRST QUESTION, he asks if the good Law can bring forth death, and the response is an absolute no- The reality is that the Law is profitable, giving guidance, but Paul's flesh is destructive, producing groanings because it was devoted to sin. Paul was in a QUANDARY, living in this struggle between what he desired to do and what he hated. This state of stress came from his flesh, as evil was still present in him - the source of this rivalry came from the members of his own body. Paul's SECOND QUESTION asked for a way to be free ...

The Struggle with the Flesh

The Purpose of the Law

This seventeenth message from Romans is used by Paul to elevate the Law as holy and righteous and good - not as sinful. He begins with a CLARIFICATION regarding the purpose of the Law, as that which helped him to recognize sin for what it is. The Law's prohibitions exposed sin, revealing the principle that sin will always take advantage of the commandments to bring out sin of every kind. The CONSEQUENCE for Paul revealed the revival of sin, and resulted in spiritual inactivity. The reason that sin could take opportunity is because it deceived him spiritually and brought death to his activity as a believer. Paul's CONCLUSION regarding the Law was that- -1- it is reliable to bring separation between what is holy and unholy- -2- its requirements are always just, upright and fair- and -3- it produces results that are always beneficial and profitable toward eternity.
