ROMANS 8 [Lord Jesus Christ version]


The beginning of the 8th chapter of the book of ROMANS in the Holy Bible of scriptures exonerates the saints of God from any condemnation. We are marvelously set free from all curses of the law of sin and death for unbounded blessings of life.

>Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

The Saviour paid the penalty of death for the whole world being made sin to take it away in exchange for the grace that extends an immutable covenant for a neverending life!

When the covenant is finally sealed with a forehead mark and seal of the living God, there is no remembrance of anything against us as far as sins and transgressions that God the righteous Judge will find to nullify eternal everlasting life with salvation.

We are no longer appointed unto the wrath of God that is come in this hour to evildoers and workers of iniquity.

For the name of the Lord we call upon for every essential need is our hiding place... It is our safe house... It is a strong tower that the righteous run in to be safe!

We are safe from all that is mentioned in this passage and all that could not be contained in the mind of Apostle Paul to express in few words.

Not even someone's devil induced imagination can conjure up anything from the past or present to be levied against a child of God born again of the water and the Spirit.

Satan, the accuser of the brethren and adversary of every soul, is silenced under our divine authority.

We are hidden without a trace of any wrongdoing from God's point of view. We simply abide forevermore always with guiltless innocence, free from all offenses.

However, our thoughtful reflections are upon the words of the passage that gives us the inspiration of the Almighty to endure all things that may be encountered on our journey through this world.

As we walk by faith with God, we will be challenged beyond our natural and earthly capacity. Trials and trouble will come because we must through much tribulation enter into the Kingdom of God!

And since our yearning desire is to enter eternity to experience what eyes have not seen or what ears have not heard, those good things hidden in the treasures of God's blissful thoughts to each one of us ~ WE FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT OF FAITH WITH UNFEIGNED LOVE UNTIL OUR LIFE IN THIS WORLD EXPIRES!

We are passing through this world in what seems to be a phantasm of persecution that ironically serves to glorify the victory of our spiritual faith to which we subscribe.

It is consoling that NOTHING can separate us from the love of God ~ the immortal essence of God's spirit in our nostrils!

It is a promise that God can not break or diminish, but endures to every generation. The heavenly unbreakable bond to successfully obtain the royal prize of eternal everlasting life emanates radially from a single word ~ LOVE!

The blessings in life that the Bible talks about are all spiritual in nature.

(Ephesians 1:3-13 NIV) Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. {4} For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love {5} he predestined us to be adopted as his sons through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will-- {6} to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he loves. {7} In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God's grace {8} that he lavished on us with all wisdom and understanding. {9} And he made known to us the mystery of his will according to his good pleasure, which he purposed in Christ, {10} to be put into effect when the times will have reached their fulfillment--to bring all things in heaven and on earth together under one head, even Christ. {11} In him we were also chosen, having been predestined according to the plan of him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of his will, {12} in order that we, who were the first to hope in Christ, might be for the praise of his glory. {13} And you also were included in Christ when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation. Having believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit,
