People's Bible Notes for Romans 14:8


Ro 14:8 We are the Lord's. While living, the aim must be to do the Lord's will, and even when we die we will be fully resigned to his will. We are not at our own disposal.

    Verse 13 is a good reminder that we should stop judging others. We are all imperfect and it is not our place to judge others.

    word: For all have sinned, and come short of The Glory of God / For the wages of sin is death;but the gift of God is Eternal Life through Jesus Christ our Lord. Romans3:23, 6:23 /--- Depart from me,ye cursed,into everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels: Matthew 25:41/ fallen Angels will spend eternity in the lake of fire. / Angels just don't drop dead, they are not people.

    Yep! Satan is fried from within to out. That's blotted out Ezekiel 28:18,19. He is sentence to death and is the son of perdition death! Only person who is sentence to die. There will be a lot of fallen angels that die at the 7th trump but they just drop dead. Now for the rest of the folks that are on the other side they will be blotted out at the Great White Throne Judgment at the end.
