For as by one man's sin we became sinners, so by the one who obeyed God perfectly - we can be made righteous.

For as through the one man’s disobedience the many were made sinners, even so through the obedience of the One the many will be made righteous.” Romans 5:19 NASB.

Paul here speaks the truth that many do not realize. Because of the obedience of Jesus to God’s will, He will make those who believe in Him righteous. Jesus is well able to help those who believe in Him live a righteous life. This is because He lived a life of obedience to His Father and lived the perfect life that we were unable to live. Jesus has been given all power and authority, since He won the victory over sin and died for your sins and mine. Matthew 28:18 KJV & NASB. It is because of this that Paul stated that it is through the obedience of the One that many will be made righteous.

The Obedience of Jesus:

Jesus declared: ‘But so that the world may know that I love the Father, I do exactly as the Father commanded Me.’ John 14:31 NASB. Jesus said, “For I did not speak on My own initiative, but the Father Himself who sent Me has given Me commandment, what to say, and what to speak. And I know that His commandment is eternal life; therefore the things I speak, I speak just as the Father has told Me." John 12:49-50 NASB. “Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father is in Me? The words that I say to you I do not speak on My own initiative, but the Father abiding in Me does His works.” John 14:10 NASB. Jesus said, “I glorified You [the Father] on the earth, having accomplished the work which You have given Me to do.” John 17:4 NASB. His life was given as an offering to His Father, because His Father desired the salvation of the world. “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” John 3:16 KJV. Jesus obeyed His Father’s commandment to die on the cross for our sins and live the perfect life we had no way of living. (Until He provided the way for us to live a righteous life through His power.) Jesus said, “For this reason the Father loves Me, because I lay down My life that I may take it again.” John 10:17 NASB. And: “I am the good shepherd; the good shepherd lays down His life for the sheep.” John 10:11 NASB. “Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.” John 15:13-14 KJV.

So also Christ glorified not himself to be made an high priest; but He [God] that said unto him, Thou art my Son, to day have I begotten thee. * * * Though He were a Son, yet learned He obedience by the things which he suffered; And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him;” Hebrews 5:5-9 KJV.

The Obedience of Jesus’ Disciples:

Jesus declared, “Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.” John 15:14 KJV. Yes, we repeated this again. “As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love. If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and abide in His love. These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full.” John 15:9-11 KJV. If you want to have joy, and have your joy made completely full, then abide in Jesus’ love, and keep His commandments, as Jesus kept His Father’s commandments.

If you wish to have eternal life, obey Jesus. Hebrews 5:9. He wants to make you perfect. How do we know this? Jesus declared that you are to love your enemies and to do good to those who hate you. Matthew 5:43-47. And He said, “Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.” Matthew 5:48 KJV. How are you to be perfect? As your Heavenly Father is perfect. If you want to be perfect, get to know God, and He will help you to keep His law of love. John says this in the negative way here: “The one who does not love does not know God, for God is love.” 1 John 4:8 NASB. Why is it that many find it so hard to be good? Because they need to get to know God. The secret to being good is to get to know God! It’s that simple! If you spend much time with Him – studying His word the Bible, praying, confessing your sins, humbling yourself before Him, asking for His help to obey Him - you will be getting to know God. His love will surround you and change you and love will be the principle in your life. If God is dwelling in you, He will help you not give into temptation, do wrong or hurt others. This is a beautiful promise!

Jesus declared, “I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them me; and they have kept thy word.” John 17:6 KJV. The disciples of Jesus keep His word. This is not just for the disciples of Jesus who walked and talked with Him when He was on this earth, but is for you too. If you give yourself to Jesus, He will help you to keep God’s word.

The Scriptures will help you to be perfect:

Paul declared that through the inspiration of the Scriptures, God will help you to be perfect and perform good works.That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.” 2 Timothy 3:17 KJV. Just believe the testimony of Paul, who was inspired by God. God gave you His word in order that you may be perfect and do good to others. No matter how bad you may have been, He has provided a way for you to be made righteous – through the perfect life of obedience of Jesus and His death on the cross for your sins. This is why He died for you, so that you may become righteous and have eternal life.

From all of this you know that in order to have your joy made full, always obey Jesus’ commandments, and abide in His love. Even though you were made a sinner through inheritance, through the sin of Adam and Eve transmitted to your parents, through Jesus you can be made righteous because of His obedience. Just believe it! His life of perfect obedience for your life of sin. You exchange your body of sin and death for eternal life through Him. Paul asks this question: “O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death?” Romans 7:24 KJV. What is the answer to this question? Paul gives it next: ‘I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord.’ Romans 7:25 KJV. It is our Lord, Jesus Christ, who will deliver you from this body of death (if you let Him). This righteousness is not just an accounting change in the books of Heaven, but is a literal change that can help you be righteous! If you allow Jesus to help you, He will make you righteous! Amen. This is the power of the Gospel!

Be like Paul, who declared, ‘For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth***’ Romans 1:16 KJV.

Beloved - may the grace of God be with you! Amen.

Who’s your Father?

Who’s your Father? “Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me. Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word.” John 8:43-43 KJV. If God is your Father, you will love Jesus. If God is your Father, you will obey Jesus. If God is your Father, you will do as Jesus did. How can you do as Jesus did? If God is your Father, you will keep His Commandments. It is very important to know who’s your Father. Dear Reader, do you love Jesus? Do you believe what John wrote is the gospel truth? What did John declare? -That whoever believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God. Are you born of God? Then you believe that Jesus is the Christ, i.e. the Messiah, the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world! John 1:29. Faith, obedience, and victory over the world. You can be born of God. If you love Jesus, you will love God and keep His commandments. May the grace of God be with you! May God be your Father! May you love Jesus and His Father. May you be Jesus’ servant and follow in His footsteps. May you do as Jesus did and do exactly what God commands you! Amen.

10 The Promise and the Oath (The Everlasting Covenant)

The sacrifice has been made; Abraham’s faith had been tested and found perfect; “And the angel of the Lord called unto Abraham out of heaven the second time, and said, By Myself have I sworn, saith the Lord, for because thou hast done this thing, and hast not withheld thy son, thine only son: That […]

The Kingdom of God Consists Not in Words But in Power! (Concise)

The Kingdom of God consists not in words but in Power! Listen to what the apostle Paul says here: “But I will come to you soon, if the Lord wills, and I shall find out, not the words of those who are arrogant, but their power. For the kingdom of God does not consist in words, but in power.” 1 Corinthians 4:19-20 NASB. Paul here was addressing a class of people among the Corinthian believers who were arrogant. 1 Corinthians 4:18. Evidently some people were causing problems in the Church, who were living without the power of God in their lives. Sound familiar? This problem and the solution addressed by Paul here is largely the same problem that we have today, and his solution is the same that is needed today. Yes, his counsel is for our day too, not just for the Corinthian church of his day. Do you want God’s power in your life to help you be good and His gifts to serve Him with? Do you want the assurance of your salvation? Then get His power in your life.

The Prayer of Faith Part 1: Conditions for Answered Prayer Handout

How to Get Answers to Prayer?
“Is anyone among you sick? Then he must call for the elders of the church and they are to pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord; and the prayer offered in faith will restore the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up, and if he has committed sins, they will be forgiven him. Therefore, confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another so that you may be healed. The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much.” James 5:14-16 NASB.

Do you believe it?
Why are we bringing up this text about healing the sick? We are using this text because it’s startling. We're bringing this up because we need to start right where people seem to have the problem: With faith. So why start with a most difficult promise? Because we want you to know with God the impossible is possible, that there is nothing too hard for God. Genesis 18:14.

Why do you need faith?
If it’s something you can do for yourself or mankind can provide, why do you need God for it? Faith is all about making your needs and petitions known to God that you cannot provide for yourself or for things you can do too! (We need God for everything!) When you have faith in God, then there is nothing that you need that He cannot provide if it’s for your best. So let’s start with discussing prayers that seem impossible as a place to start our talk on faith! That's why this Seminar is entitled the Prayer of Faith. Without faith it is impossible to please God! Hebrews 11:6. You need to believe the promises of God, as in James 5:14-16. You need to believe the Bible as it reads, because God says what He means, and means what he says and can be trusted because He loves you!

The Prayer of Faith Part 1 Conditions for Answered Prayer Transcript (Corrected)

The title for tonight’s session is the Prayer of Faith Part 1 Conditions for answered prayer. We won’t be able to cover everything here. But the main thing is to understand [that there are conditions to answered prayer.] – How many people here want God [to] hear their prayers? How many people here want their prayers to be answered? (Audience: Yea.) There’s a science behind it – we don’t always know every prayer, but there’s some prayers that you can know that God is going to answer them. Did you know that? (Audience: Yes.) Did you know that there are some prayers that God isn’t going to hear? And some of it has to do with our attitudes. We’re not going to go into all that tonight. But there’s a protocol for dealing with God, and if we want answers to our prayers we need to understand. We are not going to go through all of them tonight. But the biggest one of them all is Faith! I mean I had known this for awhile – but it didn’t really sink in. You know I was thinking [about] other things. But when I did this study I realized that the prayer of faith is like the number one condition!

What Does it Mean to be Justified Part 3

What does it mean to be justified? Are good works bad? We think it will be clear once we break it down. Some people want to insist that works are bad because works are done by those who are trying to save themselves. But is it true that works are bad? That depends on whether someone is trying to do good works in their own strength to save themselves or not. Paul doesn't contradict himself here. There's another way that good works can be done – they can be done by the Spirit of God. All this text is saying is that people who try to keep the law and their own strength will not be justified. We believe that since all our righteousnesses are filthy rags (Isaiah 64:6 KJV), then the attempt to save oneself by their works is actually sin. This is because those who do this make themselves to be their own god, little “g”. It is God’s job to save us, not ourselves – we have no ability of saving ourselves. For someone to be justified - that's an act of grace by God alone, which is Paul's point. Those who are trying to save themselves cannot have the Holy Spirit, or enjoy what it means to really live – which is to be filled with wonderful peace, great love and joy inexpressible! Nor can they ever be truly righteous – it is a hollow shell. Paul’s point is not that we won't be doing good works, his point is that those who seek to try to work out their own salvation by themselves will not be justified. We think this is clear! Jesus said, “And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner. I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other: for every one that exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.” Luke 18:13-14 KJV. The danger for those who trust in themselves, the self-righteous, is that they do not see their need clearly and may fail to confess their sins and humble themselves before God before it’s too late, because they may think that they are good and do not need to repent. So those who try to keep the law in their own strength will not be justified, until they ask for mercy, this is what Jesus and Paul taught. If they feel that they are keeping the law, they may have failed to confess the sin of breaking it. Self-righteousness is a form of Spiritual blindness. Therefore Galatians 2:16 does not contradict our passage in Romans 2:13: 'For not the hearers of the law are just before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified.' They are both in perfect harmony with each other, but they're talking about two different things. “He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy.” Proverbs 28:13 KJV.
