About Romans

Romans 1:1 Paul, a servant of Emmanuel the Christ, called to be an apostle, separated unto the gospel of God,

Romans 1:2 Which.(referring to the gospel).he had promised afore by his prophets in the holy scriptures..(Acts 3:24; 10:43; 13;32,33; Matthew 1:22)

Family New Testament Notes:."Paul is careful to show at the outset that the gospel is no new religion, but the fulfilment of the promises made in the Old Testament to the fathers."

Romans 1:3 Concerning his Son Emmanuel the Christ our Lord, which was made of the seed of David according to the flesh.

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

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

Peoples New Testament Notes:."the apostleship was given in order to lead all nations to obedience to the faith; faith being a synonym for the gospel."
Notice it says that it's for obedience to the the law of faith, not the ten commandments, that enables us to be under grace.

Romans 1:6 Among whom are you also the called of Emmanuel the Christ.

Romans 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 Emmanuel the Christ.

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

Romans 1:9 For God is my witness, whom I serve.(original 'give attention to').with my spirit in the gospel of his Son, that without ceasing I make mention of you always in my prayers;

Romans 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ. For it is the power.(the ability).of God.(the ability of God to express as the individual you are when awakened to it).unto.(original 'in' or 'into').salvation.(salvation is a state one is awakened to by believing, a state one already has but needs to know he or she has or thren what good is it?:.2Timothy 1:9).to every one that believes.(so you see, belief is first {belief can be likened to acceptance}, the belief built on faith that what you want to believe is true:.Mark 9:24; seems backwards, why?), to the Jew first and also to the Greek.(or, for everyone)..(1Corinthians 1:18)

The gospel of Christ.(Mark 1:1; Romans 1:9), also called the.gospel of the kingdom.(the good news about the kingdom being within each of us:.Matthew 4:23; also called.the gospel of the grace of God:.Acts 20:24; also called.the gospel of God:.Romans 1:1; also known as the gospel of peace:.Romans 10:15; also known as.the gospel of the uncircumcision and the circumcision:.Galatians 2:7,8; also known as.the gospel of salvation:.Ephesians 1:13. So, we see the gospel being called six different names, but all meaning the same. It depended on what was in the mind of the speaker at the time and who it may have been they were speaking to.

Romans 1:17 For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith. As it is written: The just live by faith.

Comprised from Clarke's Commentary: 'from faith to faith' is regarded as the faith of Abraham way before the Mosaic Law, where he showed his faith by actions based on his belief: Romans 4:11 "And he received...a seal of the righteousness of the faith which he had...that he might be the father of all them that believe...that righteousness might be imputed unto them also." James 2:20,23 "But will you know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead? And the scripture was fulfilled which said, Abraham believed God and it was imputed unto him for righteousness and he was called the Friend of God." Romans 3:28 "Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law.(Abraham had works that were based on his heart of belief in God and this was way before the required ancient and now abolished Mosaic Law)." Romans 5:1 "Therefore being justified by faith we have peace with God through our Lord Emmanuel Christ.".(we all have that good faith in us, we just have to decide to use it and once we do we move from faith to faith; if we use it for a high consciousness principle, say thankfulness, we'll no doubt move on to another high consciousness principle, say friendliness)

Romans 1:18 For the wrath.(original 'indignation').of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold.(original 'hold back', withhold).the truth in.(original 'out of').unrighteousness.

They may know truth, some of it anyway, but do not allow it to affect their heart toward doing any good, preferring instead to engage in the dark side's game of cover up in order not to solve issues, thus leaving solving of issues alone and of course to their own advantage in doing so:.2Thessalonians 2:12.

Romans 1:19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest.(plainly recognizable).in them.(we are all walking around thanks to the systems Creator-God designed within us to function as they do, keeping us going), for God has showed it unto them.

Romans 1:20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse.

Romans 1:20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen being understood.(1Corinthians 2:12; when we consider things of creation we find greatness of intelligence and power that is this invisible being, this Silence.behind it all; some invisible things are).by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead.(a real but invisible Supreme Being: Colossians 1:15), so that they are without excuse.(original for 'without excuse' is 'the beginning answer' or the beginning of the answers to all questions and problems, that is, they, by looking at nature can see the answers are spiritual, invisible, unavailable from the ego level, that is, if they have a brain that can think and are not 'unsane'; the beginning answer to all questions and problems is faith, why?).

Romans 1:21 Because that, when they knew God.(as they were in ages past {Jeremiah 2:31}, so are some today who learn things in the Creation subject and stop short of deeper contemplation of the incredible intelligence evidenced in Creator's design), they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful, but became vain in their imaginations and their foolish heart was darkened.

Romans 1:22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,

Romans 1:23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man and to birds and four footed beasts and creeping things.(low consciousness people way back then worshipped many gods); today the crackpot theory of evolution replaces the idiocy of the ancients worshipping many gods and why would one want to believe in something that for decades remains just a theory instead of what has been proven true).

Romans 1:24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves.

Romans 1:25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie and worshipped and served the creature.(served the created physical things, such as money, vehicles, the idol of manipulation to advance the self, to get more for the self without doing it by the soul and instead by the insipid.ego level:.2Kings 17:32,33).more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

Romans 1:26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections. For even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature.

Romans 1:27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

Romans 1:28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge.(mankind has been this way from the start:.Jeremiah 32:30-33; 44:16,17), God gave them over to a reprobate mind.(and so, judicial hardening will now have to deal with them because they'll end up doing wrong and the laws of the land will handle them), to do those things which are not convenient.(original for 'not convenient' is 'improper', 'shameful', such as what follows in the next verses)..(our nature is normally averse to spiritual concerns, so the Infinite allows us to learn our own lessons from life {how?}, but most have allowed themselves to be put asleep to reality and that needs to be dealt with {how?})

Romans 1:29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness.(the things of evil), covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,

Romans 1:30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,

Romans 1:31 Without understanding.(?), covenant breakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful.

Romans 1:32 Who knowing the judgment of God.(that is, knowing what they were like was out of line with the functioning frequency of the invisible realm of the Creator, which is love), that they which commit such things are worthy of death.(on the pathway to their own destruction), not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.(buddies in their evil ways)..(such is the mind that, although may be well educated, is continually pumped by the dark side and therefor, incredibly ignorant of spiritual things)
