Romans 8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Emmanuel, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

Romans 8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation.(original Greek for 'condemnation' is 'separation' {from a relationship with God}, 'damnatory sentence of judgment' and 'to judge worthy of punishment':.John 3:17).to them which are in Christ.Emmanuel, who walk not after the flesh.(walking after one's selfish impulses from the ordinary low consciousness mind they came to Earth with, the mind which brings one to reap what he or she may have sown), but after the Spirit..(and what is the spirit? 1John 4:12 to 1John 5:13)

Romans 8:2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Emmanuel has made me free from the law of sin and death.

Romans 8:2 For the law of the Spirit of life.(what is this 'law of the spirit of life).in Christ.(what does 'Christ' really mean?).Emmanuel has made me free.{*}.from the law of sin and death..(the law sin and death {Ezekiel 18:4,20 "...the soul that sins, it shall die...The soul that sins, it shall die. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son. The righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him."} involves human nature's working.{the ego level} apart from higher consciousness awareness); the ancient law of Moses dealt with the ego, proving the law of Moses wouldn't work on carnal people, as they just didn't have the heart to live other than from their egoes)

Romans 8:3 For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh.

Romans 8:3 For what the law.(the established ways of the Creator in the Old Testament as were described in the now gone Mosaic Law).could not do in that it was weak through the flesh.(things of the ego, the flesh level, are here contrasted with the heart level which is the higher consciousness level where love comes from; the ego level's corollary of 'love' is selfishness, love of self above all others; those existing with ordinary consciousness and stuck within the ego level {John 8:24}, do not realize we are all one).God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and for sin condemned.('condemned' here means 'to give a judgement against' in the original; note that it was this thing called sin that was condemned and not the sinning person).sin in the flesh..(He came to show mankind a better way)

Romans 8:4 That the righteousness of the law might be.fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

Romans 8:4 That the righteousness of the law might be.fulfilledin.us, who walk not after the flesh.(some back then were wanting to hang onto the law that was abolished by Christ {Colossians 2:14}.and Paul here equates this with the flesh and compares it with the spirit), but after the Spirit.(and what are the things of the spirt to walk after?).

Romans 8:5 For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh, but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.

Romans 8:5 For they that are after the flesh.(Romans 7:23; 'after the flesh' meaning here the ancient law's way of dealing with people, which was not of the heart, but of the flesh in that the over 600 laws, rules and regulations that were coupled with what the corrupt religious leaders added to it, were 'of the flesh' as the whole crap pot of it had nothing to do with the heart, the spirit of a human being).do mind the things of the flesh, but they that are after the Spirit.(meaning, your heart's main thrust is on the things of Him which are the things of a higher consciousness), the things of the Spirit.

Romans 8:6 For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.

Romans 8:7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God. For it is not subject to the law of God.(what law of God would this have been, certainly not the ancient Mosaic Law! What law then? See verse 2 above), neither indeed can be.

The low consciousness mind we all came here with is out of sync with the higher consciousness mind of the Creator.

Romans 8:8 So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.(Hebrews 11:6).

Regarding word 'please'; can't please God means to not be in alignment with what God is)

Romans 8:9 But you are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God.(higher consciousness, a.k.a. the Holy Spirit).dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ.(Christ showed what He was all about by His works:.Hebrews 1:3), he is none of his..(or, is not in the realm of the kingdom of higher consciousness within him, not in connection with his soul)

Romans 8:10 And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin, but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.

Romans 8:10 And if Christ be in you.(or, 'if you be in Christ' {comprehend.what Christ is}, the body is dead because of sin.(as the previous verse shows and also Colossians 3:1-3, that is, in the past there was the sin of Adam passed to all of us, not to mention how we carried on in sinful ways; once one is of higher consciousness thinking, he sees clearly the lower consciousness ways he had been living which kept him in a life of curses and heartaches, the ways of the ordinary consciousness that he relied upon, never realizing what they were doing to him, that's why Emmanuel said this {Luke 23:34} and did this:.1Peter 2:24; because of what He did to eradicate all sin for all time, the body and its sins are dead {Colossians 3:3} when in higher consciousness; that is, they no longer have any power to keep you from a relationship with the Great Infinite One expressing as you, called the 'Father' or just 'God' as He has adopted us into the family called God); but the Spirit is life.(original for 'life' means 'fulness of living, abundance in all areas').because of righteousness (whose righteousness is it talking about that is now yours?.Romans 3:22; 5:17,21; 10:4; 1Corinthians 1:30; Galatians 2:21; Philippians 1:11; 3:9; 2Peter 1:11);  righteousness is higher consciousness thinking and it's a gift {Romans 5:17} that individually we can appropriate by believing; if one believes something, he has accepted it as being true; now one has a new vibrant life because of equality with the Infinite One).
   (and now, because of His Spirit, we have this new life with the Father, thanks to Emmanuel and the righteousness we now have because of what He has done for us and we no longer have an excuse to feel bad and/or guilty)
   (the verse is showing the contrast between being in high consciousness and that of low consciousness)

Romans 8:11 But if the Spirit of him that raised up Emmanuel from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwells in you.(the spirit of love).

Romans 8:12 Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh.

Romans 8:13 For if you live after the flesh, you shall die. But if you through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, you shall live.

Romans 8:13 For if you live after the flesh.(which is."the law of sin and death".mentioned in verse 2 of this chapter), you shall die. But if you through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body.(Colossians 3:5), you shall live.

Romans 8:14 For as many as are led by the .Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.

Romans 8:14 For as many.(anyone).as are led.(original 'bring forth').by the.(words 'by the' not in original, but word 'the' is implied).Spirit of God.(which is love), they are the sons of God.

Romans 8:15 For you have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear.(bondage to a bunch of do's & don't, fearing if you don't do them, you're not going to be accepted by God), but you have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.

Romans 8:16.The Spirit itself bears witness with our spirit that we are the children of God.

Romans 8:16.The Spirit itself bears witness with our spirit.(1, 2) that we are the children of God..(the soul then is on the pathway of higher consciousness)

Romans 8:17 And if children, then heirs, heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ if so be that we suffer, that we may be also glorified together.

Romans 8:17 And if children, then heirs, heirs of God.(destined to be equal as we grow spiritually).and joint heirs with Christ if so be that we suffer.(see question on are we also to suffer as Emmanuel did?; word 'suffer' is 'to have been affected with or by', meaning to be of the same mind:.1Peter 4:1; Romans 12:16; that same mind was that we are all brothers & sisters in Christ); sometimes we, like Paul long before us, must struggle to maintain a high consciousness mind).with him.(word 'him' not in original, but implied), that we may be also glorified together.(Revelation 22:12).

Romans 8:18 For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.

Romans 8:18 For I reckon that the sufferings.(original for 'sufferings' is 'suffering', 'affliction', 'affection'; what.were these sufferings Paul had that he's talking about here? Paul was the great apostle who wrote this book of the Bible called Romans).of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.

Romans 8:19 For the earnest expectation of the creature waits for the manifestation of the sons of God.

Romans 8:19 For the earnest expectation of the creature.(the 'creature' is us, created beings of God).waits.(original for 'waits' is 'looks forward to receiving').for the manifestation.(original 'laying bear', 'removing of the cover', that is, one is excited about the better person he is spiritually becoming: Romans 5:3-5).of the sons of God.(*).

Romans 8:20 For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who has subjected the same in hope.

Romans 8:20 For the creature was made subject to vanity.(made with the ordinary consciousnees:.Job 5:7), not willingly.(*), but by reason of him who has subjected the same in hope..(all our lives we live in hope that things will be better for us and those we love.; if we 'had it all', right from birth, there would be no need for hope, so the Creator and His group.create circumstances and situations as well as just allowing things to happen {Matthew 5:45} things that give rise to opportunities for changed thinking leading to better/higher decisions and a better life now and forever for you and in this change there are rewards and opportunities:.1Corinthians 2:9; Isaiah 45:18; Romans 8:32 "...how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?")

Romans 8:21 Because the creature.(the 'creature' is us, created beings of God).itself also shall be delivered.(no 'shall be' about it; words 'shall be' not in original; should read 'the creature is made free'; made free by what Christ did on Earth in the physical body called Emmanuel and kept free by this).from the bondage of corruption.(the ego level of dealing with existence).into the glorious liberty of the children of God.

Romans 8:22 For we know that the whole creation groans and travails in pain together until now.

Romans 8:22 For we know that the whole creation groans and travails.('groans and travails', meaning in a condition of heading toward death on a cluttered road of pain and heartache).in pain together until now.

Romans 8:23 And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits.(1Peter 2:2).of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body.

Romans 8:23 And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body..(or as the original also has it 'the deliverance'; delivered from what and by what?)

Romans 8:24 For we are saved by hope.(Acts 20:32). But hope that is seen is not hope. For what a man sees why does he yet hope for?

Romans 8:25 But if we hope for that we see not then do we with patience wait for it.

Romans 8:26 Likewise the Spirit also helps our infirmities, for we know not what we should pray for as we ought.(word 'pray' here, in original is 'to wish/want for the advantage of'). But the Spirit itself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered..('groanings which cannot be uttered' are things about ourselves and others difficult to put into words:.Ephesians 6:18; often, things of the spirit are known but difficult to explain, like ask an athlete why he excels above so many others and they'll tell you I don't know, I just knew that I could; the Holy Spirit brings to mind in times of quiet communion with the Creator; how this works)

Romans 8:27 And he that searches the hearts knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because he makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God..

Romans 8:27 And he.(word 'he' not in original; verse could then read.'and searching the hearts, the spirit knows how to bring up anything of spiritual importance to a saint's mind').that searches the hearts knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because he.(word 'he' not in original).makes.(word 'makes' not in original).intercession for the saintsaccording to the will of.('the will of' not in original).God.

Romans 8:28 And we know that.all things work together for good.to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good.(note it says 'work together for good' and this means...; note too that evil(s) can work together with other evil(s) in producing good, that's why the scripture tells us not to resist evil:.Matthew 5:39; positive coincidences begin to occur among the darkness we may presently be engulfed in: God is the master potter and works all things according to what He sees best overall:.Ephesians 1:11).to them that love God.(Adam Clarke's Commentary:."It is not said that all things shall work for good, being sometime in the future, but that they work now in the behalf of those who love now, for the verbs 'work' and 'love' are in the present tense"; you love the Creator by adopting the same consciousness that He has, even if you are clumsy at first with it; in this way you express the real you; be in the process of what we call God, the intelligent energy of the universe and be detached from outcomes; if one is confident of an outcome, he doesn't have to worry about it coming to pass, because it's a sure thing), to them who are the called.{*} according to his purpose.(this means that if you are interested in the true things of God, you are called to the purpose God has at this time for those God is awakening).

If all things are not working good for you, circumstances are alerting you to something needing fixing in attitude so you can get back into alignment with the high consciousness things of the Creator and the best way to do this is by emphasizing.these things in your life. It could also be that the Creator is taking you somewhere.

Romans 8:29 For whom he did foreknow he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.

Romans 8:29 For whom he did foreknow he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren..(everyone was foreknown:.2Timothy 1:9; Christ is our brother)

Romans 8:30 Moreover whom he did predestinate them he also called. And whom he called, them he also justified. And whom he justified, them he also glorified.

Romans 8:30 Moreover whom he did predestinate them he also called. And whom he called, them he also justified. And whom he justified, them he also glorified.(that's why God calls you holy, righteous & perfect, justified & as good as having already been glorified:.Romans 4:17 "...God, who quickens the dead {Colossians 3:3} and calls those things which be not as though they were.").

Romans 8:31 What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?

God is always with those aspiring to higher consciousness ways:.Proverbs 15:3,8,9,29; John 9:31; Ezekiel 18:25-28; Matthew 6:33. Those resisting the universal laws God has laid down which produce good, bring into their lives many negative issues:.Isaiah 8:6-10; Jeremiah 27:1,5-18.

Romans 8:32 He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?

Romans 8:32 He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up.(Isaiah 53rd chapter).for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?.(but don't I have to do all the things religion tells us to do?)

Romans 8:33 Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God's elect? It is God that justifies..(in other words God and none other, is the one who makes the final decisions and what did Martin Luther say was the final decision regarding each of us?)

Romans 8:34 Who is he that condemns? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us.

Christ's nature is that of helping where one needs and wants help, example:.Isaiah 53:12 with Luke 23:42,43.

Romans 8:35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation or distress or persecution or famine or nakedness or peril or sword?.(Paul's example and what Paul said:.Philippians 3:17)

Romans 8:36 As it is written, For your sake we are killed all the day long. We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.

Romans 8:36 As it is written.(Psalms 44:22), For your sake.(your purposes, your plan, which is always good for mankind).we are killed all the day long. We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.

Romans 8:37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.

Romans 8:37 Nay, in all these things.(what things? verses 28-36 just above).we are more than conquerors through him.(?; Romans 1:16; 1Corinthians 1:18).that loved us.

Romans 8:38 For I am persuaded, that neither death nor life nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,

Romans 8:39 Nor height nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God.(note that it's the love of God {and God is defined by what? what really is God?.1John 4:6-16} which is in Christ; if you're in Christ, you're in the love of God; is there anything more important, is there anywhere else to go for all you need?), which is in Christ Emmanuel our Lord..(why? Hebrews 13:5:."...for he has said, I will never leave you, nor forsake you.")
