Wesley's Notes for Romans 8:22


8:22 For the whole creation groaneth together - With joint groans, as it were with one voice. And travaileth - Literally, is in the pains of childbirth, to be delivered of the burden of the curse. Until now - To this very hour; and so on till the time of deliverance.


People's Bible Notes for Romans 8:22


Ro 8:22 For we know that the whole creation groaneth, etc. The world is in travail, groaning for deliverance. That it is in travail is certain; there is unrest and crying for deliverance everywhere. It may not understand its trouble, nor even what it wants, but the meaning is that it is fallen, its wishes frustrated, and it is sighing for deliverance. These groans and sorrows are a prophecy of a time of deliverance when there shall be "new heavens, and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness" (2Pe 3:13).

    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
