Wesley's Notes for Romans 7:23

People's Bible Notes for Romans 7:23


Ro 7:23 But I see another law in my members. One law of our being is the approval of righteousness; another is the inclination of the flesh to do evil. This law wars against the law of [the] mind, the conscience and will, and brings it into captivity. It prevails. Hence, unregenerate man is a captive. There is a struggle in the nature of man; of the "inward Man" (Ro 7:22), with the flesh, with the result of captivity of the soul.

Discussion for Romans 7:23

  • Apostles Jessical Haley for verse 23
    I feel in my sanctified Spirit that this bible scripture could be given in two ways, Yes I know we have sin in our body 's and we must bring it unto captivity so that we will not obey it.. But I also feel this with our minds as not having faith as looking on others that have sin in their and our faith is not being productive In way to destroy things we see operating in or upon someone.. We always speak negative concerning the sin.. But will not speak by faith to pray over person that they may be delivered or healed. We see the sin it take captivity of our minds and we can 't see others as GOD see them.. JESUS CHRIST came to set the captives free.. We also see where he spoke and said how the enemy desires to sift one of the disciples like wheat but JESUS CHRIST says He pray that their faith failed not.. We have a problem looking pass a problem in others live or even our own and looking to JESUS CHRIST and calling ourselves or others out by the word of GOD.. We have been given a Measure faith for it to grow in HIM as He Produces miracles in the lives of HIS people... Our minds will stop the processes of life given blessings if we do not pull down that member that Wars against members if our minds.. And bring it into captivity to the word of GOD.. Speak Life Over Yourselves And Others and See GOD bring HIS WORD TO PAST...!! Apostle Jessical
