Wesley's Notes for Romans 8:21


8:21 The creation itself shall be delivered - Destruction is not deliverance: therefore whatsoever is destroyed, or ceases to be, is not delivered at all. Will, then, any part of the creation be destroyed? Into the glorious liberty - The excellent state wherein they were created.


People's Bible Notes for Romans 8:21


Ro 8:21 Because the creature itself also shall be delivered. The Revised Version reads, "The creation was subjected . . . in hope that the creation itself also", etc. Though "subjected to vanity" (Ro 8:20), it still retained the hope of final deliverance. From the bondage of corruption. Decay and death. Into the glorious liberty. The Revised Version says, "The liberty of the glory". The present state is "bondage to corruption". The hope is deliverance from the bondage into "the liberty of the glory". In the day of the revelation of that glory, "all things shall become new" (Re 21:1,5).

    Nothing can actually separate us from love of Christ,
    Christ show us love having died for us, is it suffering? He suffered for us, famine? He went through hunger, name it nothing can separate me from HIS love.

    Karel:A believer is not at fault if a spouse leaves for another.( maybe?) Are you born again? Do You have a Church You go to? Are you well-versed in the Bible? There are many questions. The only advice I have is go talk to a Pastor in a Bible believing Church, One preaches on Heaven, Hell and Salvation. First You need to Know The Lord as Savior. If You do, That's Great!
  • Pastor Bob heasty
    Praise the Lord, God's amazing grace to always be sufficient in all our needs to encourage us with His unfailing presents, and we know that once saved, always saved, our Lord Jesus Christ shall keep us , He never loses a soul yet that has put their faith in Him, For who so ever confesses Christ as their saviour shall always be saved, and by faith begins to do the works of God, I encourage you all to be in a good Bible believing Church this Sunday to be encouraged and to grow in your faith
