Wesley's Notes for Romans 2:11


2:11 For there is no respect of persons with God - He will reward every one according to his works. But this is well consistent with his distributing advantages and opportunities of improvement, according to his own good pleasure.


People's Bible Notes for Romans 2:11


Ro 2:11 There is no respect of persons. Greek, as well as Jew, if he works good, shall have the same blessed rewards. Compare Ac 10:34,35. God is impartial in the blessings conferred (see Mt 5:45), as well as in his punishments.

    Politics and the Bible religion has anyone ever noticed - the world hasn't changed one iota for the better for all our arguing, discussing, about it nor has the Bible. The world stays the same confusing the Word of God hasn't been 'listening' either. But it's not - confusing.

    "I believe this and I believe that and I don't believe this nor that" Jesus said to satan - IT IS WRITTEN ..... " Saying "I" is what satan did concerning God - Isa. 14:13-14 FIVE times satan said, I WILL. "For thou hast said in thine heart ..... "

    Eph. 2:10 - "....... UNTO good works which God hath before ordained that we should 'walk' in them." Jas. 2:14, 17, 18, 20, 22, 24, 26. 'Walk' implies - DOING something for the Lord; not just telling people "I am a Christian."

    Romans 2:1, Notice the the scripture says, man (flesh) who judges. We are not flesh but are spirit beings in flesh bodies. GOD is referring to the flesh because all flesh does the same things; but, we who are spirit in flesh bodies judge as we see
  • Eliiah
    For judgment I am come into this world, that they which see not might see and that they which see might be made blind. I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believes on me should not abide in darkness. For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist. So shall it be at the end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just, And all flesh shall see the salvation of God. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.
