Wesley's Notes for Romans 1:4


1:4 But powerfully declared to be the Son of God, according to the Spirit of Holiness - That is, according to his divine nature. By the resurrection from the dead - For this is both the fountain and the object of our faith; and the preaching of the apostles was the consequence of Christ's resurrection.


People's Bible Notes for Romans 1:4


Ro 1:4 But declared [to be] the Son of God. Though in human form he was demonstrated to be divine by power, such power as he displayed in mighty miracles, and especially by the greater miracle of his own resurrection from the dead. According to the spirit of holiness. It must be noted that this is a contrast with "according to the flesh" in Ro 1:3, and hence must refer to our Lord's holy nature. The body was descended from David, but the pure, holy life was demonstrated to be divine. One was a human nature; the other was a divine nature. This nature is spoken of as "the spirit of holiness", because it is contrasted with sinful flesh.

    And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; thats why people separated of God make a high deep in the worst of their humanity, that why sometimes we listen about horrible news.

    A right understanding of the truth of God in Christ, will answer every miscalculation of men's thinking. The fact is, that God is absolutely going to "force" the world to submit under His Son Jesus Christ; and our assurance of this, is that He has raised Jesus from the dead and given Him ALL AUTHORITY in heaven and on earth, and the Name above every name!We repent because we are warned in advance.
