Glad Tidings of Romans ! – part 7

captives free     “For I am not ashamed of the Glad Tidings of Christ . . . for therein is the Righteousness of GOD revealed from Faith to faith . . . !”   Romans 1:16-17

     “And when He (Jesus, Yehushua) went forth to land, there met Him  . . . a certain man, which had devils long time, and ware no clothes, neither abode in any house, but in the tombs . . . And when he saw Jesus, he cried out, and fell down before Him, and with a loud voice said . . .

     What have we to do with Thee, Jesus, thou Son of GOD? art Thou come hither to torment us before the time?”   Luke 8:26-28 & Matthew 8:28-29

     “For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to Me, and every tongue shall confess to GOD . . . !”     Romans 14:11

     “Look unto Me, and be ye Saved (delivered, set free, healed), all the ends of the earth: for I Am God, and there is none else. For I have sworn by Myself, the Word is gone out of My mouth in righteousness, and shall not return . . . unto Me void !”       Isaiah 45:22-24 & 55:11

     “And when He (Jesus) had come out of the ship, immediately there met Him out of the tombs a man with an unclean (lewd) spirit. Who had his dwelling among the tombs; and no man could bind him, no, not even with fetters.

     Because that he had been often bound with fetters and chains, and the chains had been plucked asunder by him, and the fetters broken in pieces: neither could any man tame him. And always, night and day, he was in the mountians, and in the tombs, crying, and cutting himself with stones . . .”     Mark 5:1-20

And the man said, “I adjure Thee by GOD, that Thou torment me not. For He said unto him, Come out of the man, thou unclean spirit. And He (Jesus) asked him, What is thy name? . . . And he said Legion: because many devils were entered into him . . .”   Luke 8:29-30 & Mark 5:8-9

     “And He cast out the spirits with His Word ! . . . And when they (of the city) went out to see what was done; and came to Jesus, and found the man, out of whom the devils were departed, sitting at the feet of Jesus, clothed and in his right mind . . . they were afraid . . . !”     Matthew 8:16, Luke 8:35-36

“And when Jesus (Yehushua) was come into the ship, he that had been possessed with the devil prayed Him that he might be with Him. Howbeit Jesus suffered him not, but saith unto him . . .

Go home to thy friends, and tell them how great things the LORD hath done for thee, and had compassion on thee . . . !”
Mark 5:18-20


     From faith to faith . . . ‘And we declare unto you the Glad Tidings, how that the Promise which was made unto the fathers, GOD (Jehovah, Yehuwah) hath fulfilled the same unto us their children . . . That He would grant unto us, that we being delivered out of the hand (grasp, power) of our enemies, might serve Him without fear, in holiness and righteousness before Him all the days of our lives !   Acts 13:32-33 & Luke 1:74

Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved (delivered, set free, healed) us. By the washing (baptism) of Regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Spirit . . . To perform the mercy Promised to our fathers, and to remember His holy Covenant; The Oath which He sware unto our father Abraham . . . Which He wrought in Christ, when He raised Him from the dead, and set Him at His Own right hand in the heavens . . . In Whom also ye are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ (The Anointed, the Anointing) . . .                                                                         Titus 3:5, Luke 1:72-73, Ephesians 1:20 & Colossians 2:11-12

For if ye live after (by) the flesh, ye shall die. But if ye through the Spirit do mortify (put to death) the deeds of the body, ye shall live . . . by the Sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God . . . And if the Spirit of Him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwells in you, then He that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by His Spirit that dwelleth in you ! . . . for the Words that I speak unto you, they are Spirit and they are Life . . . !
Romans 8:13&11, Ephesians 6:17 & John 6:63

Therefore we are buried with Him by baptism into death . . . That like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the Glory of the Father, even so we also should rise to walk in newness of Life ! . . . Wherein also ye are risen with Him through faith in the operation* (work and power) of GOD, Who hath raised Him from the dead ! . . .
Romans 6:4 & Colossians 2:12

For if we have been planted (buried) together in the likeness of His death, we shall be also in the likeness of His resurrection. Knowing this, that our old man (that which was born under Adam) is crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve (be in submission, slavery to) sin . . . For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under Grace* (G5485 – the Divine Influence upon the heart) . . . !                                                                             Romans 6:5-6 & 6:14

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 (in exchange) for sin, condemned sin in the flesh: That the righteousness of the law might be filled full in us, who walk (live) not by after the flesh, but by the Spirit . . . For the law of the Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus (Moshiac Yehushua) hath made me free . . . and if the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed . . . from the law of sin and death !                            Romans 8:3-2 & John 8:36

That ye might know what is the hope of His calling . . . and what is the exceeding greatness of His power to us-ward who believe, according to the working* (effectual operation) of His mighty power. Which He wrought in Christ when He raised Him from the dead, and set Him at His Own right hand in the heavenly places ! . . .
Ephesians 1:18-20

Therefore being by the right hand of GOD exalted, and having received of The Father the Promise of
the Holy Spirit
. . .
for unto Abraham and his Seed were the Promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of One . . . And to thy Seed, which Seed is Christ (The Anointed) . . . He hath shed forth this which ye now see and hear !                                                                                    Acts 2:33 & Galatians 3:16

For the Promise . . . was not to Abraham, or to his Seed (Christ) through the law, but through the righteous-ness of faith . . . for without faith it is impossible to please Him (Jehovah, Yehuwah): for he that cometh to GOD must believe that He Is (I AM THAT I AM), and that He is a Rewarder of them that diligently seek Him ! . . . And whatsoever is not of faith is sin . . . and which of you convinceth (rebukes, convicts) Me of sin?
Romans 4:13, Hebrews 11:6, Romans 14:23 & John 8:46

Quote:     “The means by which we can overcome the wicked one is that by which Christ overcame, –the power of the Word. God does not control our minds without our consent; but if we desire to know and to do His will, His Promises are ours: “Ye shall know the Truth, and the Truth shall make you free.” “If any man willeth to do His will, he shall know of the teaching.” John 8:32; 7:17

Through faith in these Promises, every man may be delivered from the snares of error and the control of sin. Every man is free to choose what power he will have to rule over him. None have fallen so low, none are so vile, but that they can find deliverance in Christ. The demoniac, in place of prayer, could utter only the words of Satan; yet the heart’s unspoken appeal was heard. No cry from a soul in need, though it fail of utterance in words, will be unheeded.

Those who will consent to enter into Covenant relation with the God of heaven are not left to the power of Satan or to the infirmity of their own nature.”                                                     – Desire of Ages   p.259

Christ lived a human life that He might be man’s example in all things. He endured temptation even as every human being must endure. He believed God as we must believe ! He learned obedience even as we are required to learn obedience. And He overcame as we must overcome. His path lay through manifold temptations; therefore He knows how to succour those who are tempted.”   Bible Echo, September 3, 1900

Christ lived a life of perfect obedience to God’s law, and in this He set an example for every human being. The life that He lived in this world we are to live, through His power and under His instruction (Psalm 119:105 & 130). Christ came to make us “partakers of the Divine nature,” and His life declares that humanity, combined with Divinity, does not commit sin !

The Saviour overcame to show man how he may overcome. All the temptations of Satan, Christ met with the Word of God. By trusting in God’s Promises, He received power to obey God’s commandments, and the tempter could gain no advantage. To every temptation His answer was, “It is written.” So God has given us His Word wherewith to resist evil. Exceeding great and precious Promises are ours, that by these we “might be partakers of the Divine nature, having escaped the corruption (sin and death) that is in the world through lust.”                                     – The Ministry of Healing, pages 179-182

Therefore it is of (by) faith, that it might be by Grace (G5485); to the end the Promise might sure to all the seed (children) . . . As it is written, I have made thee a father of many nations, before Him Whom He believed, even GOD, Who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they already were ! And being not weak in faith . . . for faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God . . . he considered not his own body . . . for it is not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit, saith the LORD of hosts . . . now dead, when he was about an hundred years old, neither yet the deadness of Sarah’s womb.         Romans 4:16-19, 10:17 & Zechariah 4:6

And he staggered (stumbled) not at the Promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving the glory to God . . . And being fully persuaded that, what He had promised, He was able also to perform. Therefore it was imputed (counted as, reckoned) to him for righteousness . . . !                      Romans 4:20-22

For by faith Abraham, when he was tried (tested), offered up Isaac: and he that had received the Promises offered up his only begotten son . . . Of whom it was said, That in Isaac shall thy Seed be called . . . Accounting that GOD (Jehovah, Yehuwah) was able . . . to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think . . . to raise him up, even from the dead, from whence also he received him in a figure . . . the figure of Him that was to come . . . According to the Power which worketh in us !

Hebrews 11:17-19, Ephesians 3:20 & Romans 5:14

And we declare unto you the Glad Tidings, how that the Promise which was made unto the fathers . . . the Oath which He sware unto Abraham . . . GOD hath fulfilled the same unto us their children, in that He hath raised up Jesus again from the dead . . . now no more to return to corruption; for He said on this wise, I will give You the sure mercies of David (My Beloved) . . . As it is also written in the second Psalm, Thou art My Son, this day have I begotten Thee !
Acts 13:32-34, Luke 1:73, ref: Isaiah 55:3 & Psalm 89:26-36

Wherefore, as the Holy Spirit saith, Today, if ye will hear His Voice, harden not your hearts . . . For we are made partakers of Christ (The Anointed One, the Anointing), if we hold the beginning of our confidence stedfast unto the end . . . As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in Him . . . !

Hebrews 3:7-14 & Colossians 2:6

For He saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted (ref: Luke 4:16-17), and in the day of Salvation (deliver-ance, freedom, liberty, rescue, healing, and restoration)  have I succored thee: Behold, now is the accepted time, Now is the day of your Salvation !                  II Corinthians 6:2 & Isaiah 49:8

For as many as are led by the Spirit of GOD, they are the sons (begotten children) of GOD . . . And if children, then heirs; heirs of GOD, and joint-heirs with Christ . . . And because ye are sons, GOD hath sent forth the Spirit of His Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father !                                      Romans 8:14-17

Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son . . . begotten again by the Word of Truth ! . . . and if a son, then an heir of God (Deity) through Christ (the Anointing) ! . . . Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious (blood bought) Promises: that by these Promises, ye might be partakers of the Divine nature . . . For all the Promises of GOD are in Him (The Word), are Yea, and in Him Amen, unto the glory and honour of GOD by us ! . . .                     Galatians 4:7, ref: James 1:18, I Peter 1:23, II Peter 1:4 & II Corinthians 1:20

For if the Inheritance be by the law, then it is no more of Promise: but GOD gave it to Abraham by
. . . For when GOD made Promise to Abraham, because He could sware by no greater, He sware by Himself, saying . . . In thy Seed (which is Christ) shall all the kindreds of the earth be Blessed . . .
Now the parable is this: The Seed is the Word of God . . . and the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us . . . Then said Jesus (Yehushua) to those . . . which believed on Him, If ye continue in My Word . . . for the Words that I speak unto you, they are Spirit and they are Life ! . . . then are ye My disciples indeed (in very deed) !
Galatians 3:18, Hebrews 6:13, Acts 3:25, Luke 8:11 & John 1:14, 8:31, 6:63

If ye abide in Me, and My Words . . . which are Spirit and are Life . . . abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you. For herein is My Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; and so shall ye be My disciples . . . Even as Abraham believed GOD, and it was accounted unto him for righteousness. Know ye therefore that they which are of (by) faith, the same are the children of Abraham . . . and heirs according to the Promise . . . !                                                                                              John 15:7-8 & Galatians 3:6-7,29

Even the righteousness of GOD which is by faith of Jesus Christ (Yehushua ha Moshiac), unto all and upon all them that believe . . . For we are the circumcision, which worship (serve and obey) GOD in the Spirit, and rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh . . . As your father Abraham rejoiced to see My day: and he saw it and was glad . . . who against hope (the Word of God), believed in hope (the Word of God), that he might become the father of many nations, according to that which was spoken, So shall thy Seed be !
Romans 3:22, Philippians 3:3, John 8:56 & Romans 4:18

And hope (G1680 – confidence, faith, expectation) maketh not ashamed . . . For we are saved (delivered, healed and made whole) by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for? . . . For we walk (live) by faith, not by sight ! . . .                    Romans 5:5,8:24-25 & II Corinthians 5:7

For we through the Spirit wait (expect fully) for the hope of Righteousness by faith. For in Christ Jesus (the Anointing of Yehuwah’s Salvation) neither circumcision availed any thing, nor uncircumcision; but faith which worketh by love . . . Because the love of God is shed abroad (poured out) in our hearts by the Holy Spirit which is given unto us . . . Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy . . . the mercy Promised to the fathers . . . He saved us !  By the washing (baptism) of regeneration (new birth), and renewing of the Holy Spirit . . .                                                          Galatians 5:5-6, Romans 5:5 & Titus 3:5

Which He shed (poured forth) on us abundantly (Early Rain) through Jesus Christ. That being justified (declared innocent, righteous, and holy) by His Grace, we should be made heirs according to the Hope of Eternal Life . . . which God, that cannot lie, Promised before the world began !                              Titus 3:6-7 & 1:2

For by Grace (G5485 – the Divine Influence) are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, for it is the gift of GOD . . . Even the Righteousness of GOD which is by the faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe . . . Even we which have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified (declared innocent, righteous, holy) by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law . . . !
Ephesians 2:8, Romans 3:22 & Galatians 2:16

And be found in Him . . . for as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ . . . not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ. The righteousness which is of GOD by faith . . . !’                                                Philippians 3:9 & Galatians 3:27

Even the righteousness of GOD (Jehovah, Yehuwah) revealed and clearly manifest in the Life of His Son Christ Jesus, from Faith to faith . . . !

Now the God (Elohim) of hope fill you with all joy and Peace (Shalom) in believing, that ye may abound in hope (expectation, confidence and faith), through the power of the Holy Spirit . . . !’
Romans 15:13
