People's Bible Notes for Romans 8:39


Ro 8:39 Nor height, nor depth. Perhaps, the things which exalt us and the things which cast us down. Things high and things low. Nor any other creature. Any other created thing. Shall be able to separate us. None of these, "I am persuaded" (Ro 8:38), shall have power enough to tear us away from Christ, by causing us to apostatize. The love of God, which is in Christ. God's great love for us is all shown through Christ. Nowhere has Paul shown more exultation, more overflowing emotion, than in this close of a profound argument, which shows the complete and full salvation of those who believe upon Christ and are found in him.

    God wants everybody not just Israel, Moses stood in the gap for Israel but Christ stands in the gaps for the whole world,If I be lifted up i will draw all all men unto me. SCRIPTURE SAYS EVEN THE ISLANDS OF THE SEAS SHALL BE CONVERTED UNTO ME,GOD IS NO RESPECTOR OF PERSONS GOD SO LOVED TH WORLD, Jesus said out of the hearts of man proceeds all manner of evil, HE STOOD IN THE GAP FOR HUMANITY GBU.

    "The whole human race deserved destruction..." We hear this kind of preaching a lot; and I have to admit, I too have parroted this idea. But we should really pay attention to the meaning in so many of the Lord's parables, about lost sheep, lost sons, etc. and the love and tender mercy of God, and His view of a lost and sinning world! Neither do I condemn thee; go, and sin no more! Freely forgiven!

    Election:God determined who be saved Man doesn’t seek after Rom 3:11

    The whole human race deserved destruction; but for reasons not perfectly known to us, God determined to recover some by regeneration and the power of his grace. He predestinated, or before decreed, that they should be conformed to the image of his Son. In this life they are in part renewed, and walk in his steps.
