Wesley's Notes for Romans 10:18


10:18 But their unbelief was not owing to the want of hearing For they have heard. Yes verily - So many nations have already heard the preachers of the gospel, that I may in some sense say of them as David did of the lights of heaven. #Psa 29:4|


People's Bible Notes for Romans 10:18


Ro 10:18 Have they not heard? Who are alluded to? Both Jews and Gentiles. The objector might say, Well, if faith comes by hearing, so few have heard that we are not responsible for our unbelief. Nay, says the apostle, the opportunity to hear has been very widely extended. In the language of the Psalmist Ps 19:4, Their sound went into all the earth. The sound of the preachers of the gospel. And their words unto the ends of the world. When the vast multitude converted on Pentecost were scattered to their homes, they carried the gospel into all parts of the civilized world. Paul was now writing to the church in Rome, where no apostle had ever been.

    PSALM 119:142 thy righteousness is an everlasting righteousness and thy law is the truth PROVERBS 12:17 he that speaketh truth showeth forth righteousness but a false witness deceit JOHN 1:17 for the law was given by Moses but grace and truth came by JESUS CHRIST ROMANS 6:18 being then made from sin you became the servants of righteousness --6:20-- for when you were the servants of sin you were free from righteousness --6:22-- but now being made free from sin and become servants to GOD you have your fruit unto holiness and the end everlasting life

    "For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth." Romans 10:4 Christ is the thing aimed at, the whole point, the sum and substance of the Law's intended meaning and its goal to show us what kind of people we are supposed to be from the beginning. NOT the end, as in it no longer is in effect or has any more right to exist because if we think we can say, that there is no more Law of God, then we might as well say that He has denied Himself and His own Nature which is impossible. The Law teaches us the character and nature of God, in whose image we are made. The Law will be fully enforced under the reign of Christ, and we will rule the Nations by His Law. The Word of God is, that the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the golry of the LORD as the waters cover the sea, and that all Nations shall one day rejoice how there is no Law so righteous as God's Law. And until the Lord returns to set up His kingdom and put away every wicked mouth against Him, that Scripture has yet to be fulfilled.

    Romans 11:33-36 O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out!
    For who hath known the mind of the Lord? or who hath been his counsellor?
    Or who hath first given to him, and it shall be recompensed unto him again?
    For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen.
