Romans 10 – You Must Do Something
Romans chapter 10 verse 13, 14, 15, 16 says this, ” For everyone who calls upon the name of Jehovah will be saved. ” ” However, how will they call on him in whom they have not put faith? How, in turn, will they put faith in him of whom they have not heard? How, in turn, will they hear without someone to preach? 15. How , in turn, will they preach unless they have been sent forth? Just as it is written: ” How comely (beautiful) are the feet of those who declare good news of good things! ” Knowledge of whom to call on is not an option, it is not just pick any name out of a hat, it is very specific, and just using the name god, could mean you are calling for Satan, because he is referred to as the ” god of this system of things, who has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, that the illumination of the glorious good news about the Christ, who is the image of God, might not shine through. ” 2 Corinthians 4:4. And the use of the word Lord could mean anyone in England. In addressing anyone it is much more respectful to use the persons name, if you know it, rather than just blurting out ” Hey You” , if you do not know a persons name, try to walk up and introduce yourself, or have an associate introduce you.
THE REASON FOR CHRIST
Christ death on the torture stake was far more involved than humans. His death on the stake was over an issue raised in heaven, a direct challenge to God in front of all the angels, that man could never remain loyal to God, skin for skin, man would reject God was the accusation made by the person who was able to convince Adam and Eve to turn their backs on God. Jesus Christ, who was the first born of the creation by God, and at whose hands all other things came into existence, volunteered to prove the enemy of God wrong, by abandoning his position in heaven and offering his life to be transformed into a man of flesh and blood, born through a woman, raised as a baby on earth to experience first hand as a human the trials and tribulations of life on earth under abject evil.He remained faithful to his heavenly Father all the way to his death, thus proving before all onlookers, earthly, but more importantly to the angels in heaven who witnessed first hand the very first rebellion against God. Jesus was a direct creation by God , Adam was a direct creation by God,and Jesus when God said, “Let us make man in our image, in our likeness” Jesus was perfect and Adam was perfect, both having been made by God. The only fair comparison of the standard of the species, would be Adam and Christ, of all the creatures in the universe. Adam received death when he deliberately choose to go against Gods warning, that if you do this thing, you will die.Adam could only pass off to his offspring what he himself had, death. By Christ proving the challenge, that a creation of God, IE man, could remain faithful to God even in the face of a certain death, this act justified to all of those looking on in the assembly in the heavens, that mankind did posses within their genetic makeup, their DNA, the way that God made them, their design was proved to be valid, and thus a way was paved for mankind to be brought back from the original sin of Adam, into an arrangement led by Jesus Christ, to perfection, and afterwards, upon a final test of their loyalty to God, will have their condemnation of death, inherited by Adam, removed, and mankind will never have to die again strictly because of inherited sin. However, anytime in the future, they make the choice to go against God, after receiving the freedom of sin by God, rejecting that liberty, and once again choosing evil over good, their destruction will be immediate, and permanent.
