From Sam-Best Ewruje, an able minister of the New Testament, not of man, nor by man, not of blood, nor the will of the flesh, nor the will of man, but by the will of God through the Grace and Mercy Christ given unto me. Abundance of Grace and Gift of righteousness which is by Grace be unto you in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Please be patient to read. It will set you free.
We continue with this interesting revelation of the theology of one. We said that God has an eternal plan through One Man Jesus Christ, the Son of God. The original plan of God has not changed which was to create a people for Himself who will worship Him eternally.
We said God pronounced on Satan that the seed of the woman will bruise his head and Satan went into action to corrupt this seed hence most of the atrocities and terrible sins and wickedness through the old Testament.
We concluded that if God gave ONE law in the Garden of Eden and man still flunked exposing the utter wretchedness of man attempting to keep God’s law or commandments or ordinances etc. So why do men still think that it is their self righteousness or good deeds that will EARN them salvation? Romans 5 really explains the theology of one which is so mind blowing that it is not for analysis or debate but for believing and enjoying. No doubting Thomas can receive this. For us to get the full picture we will take Romans 5:12-19 verse by verse as this series progresses.
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: Emphasis mine
This verse speaks very loudly for itself. It was by ONE man the first Adam that sin came into this world. Sin was in the world before you and I were born. So all have sinned on \god’s sight no matter what you do. As David put it he lamented that he was even conceived in iniquity. When we say sin we think of the little or big acts we commit everyday but these are just the symptoms of SIN!! Sin is a powerful force as Paul described that work in our members that even cause you to do what you do not even want to do. He concluded that only ONE MAN Jesus can save a man from this monster called SIN. When you can believe this, SIN will leave you by itself like chains dropping off. You may still fall into sin from time to time but that is not your intention. A true believer will try to avoid sin but if it happens, confess it and move forward then ask God for Grace to overcome such sinful acts.
14 For we know that the law is spiritual: but I am carnal, sold under sin.
15 For that which I do I allow not: for what I would, that do I not; but what I hate, that do I.
16 If then I do that which I would not, I consent unto the law that it is good.
17 Now then it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.
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.
19 For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do.
20 Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.
21 I find then a law, that, when I would do good, evil is present with me.
22 For I delight in the law of God after the inward man:
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.
24 O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death?
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.
Wow!! How can you neglect such a great salvation?
Keep up with this series it will bless you forever. We will treat Romans 5:13-14 next
