Welcome To BARAH MINISTRIES
a Christian Church
Romans 1: The Gospel is a Gift to Give Away
Therefore, having been justified by faith (alone in Christ alone for salvation in the past), we (believers in Christ now) have peace with God through our (unbreakable union with the) Lord Jesus Christ…
…through (this Lord Jesus Christ also) whom also we (believers in Christ) have obtained our introduction by faith into this (sphere of) grace in whichwe stand; and we (believers in Christ) exult in hope (with the absolute confidence) of the glory of God.
And not only (do we believers in Christ exult in) this, but we (believers in Christ) also exult in our tribulations, knowing that tribulation brings about perseverance…
…and (we know) perseverance, (brings about) proven character; and (we know) proven character (brings about) hope…
…and hope does not disappoint, because the (unconditional) love of God has been poured out within our hearts through (God) the Holy Spirit who was given to us.
So, for my part, I am eager to preach the gospel, as a minster, to you also who are in Rome.
THIRD ROMANS PASSAGE
Romans, Chapter 1, Verses 16 to 18
FOR I am not ashamed of the gospel…FOR the gospel is the power of God the Father for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first (chronologically), and also to the Greek.
FOR in the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ the righteousness of God the Father is revealed, from faith in the Lord for salvation to faith in the Lord for all things; as it is written, “BUT THE RIGHTEOUS man(any believer in Christ) SHALL LIVE BY FAITH (by placing his confidence in God).”
FOR the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and (against all) unrighteousness of men (unbelievers) who suppress the truth (of the gospel) in unrighteousness.
To me (Paul), the very least of all saints (believers in Christ), this grace was given (to me by God), to preach to the Gentiles the unfathomable riches of Christ (of His Person and of His gospel message)…
…and to bring to light what is the administration (dispensation) of the mystery (The Church Age) which for ages has been hidden in (the) God who created (the) all things (the Lord Jesus Christ)…
…so that the manifold (multi-faceted) wisdom of God (the Father) might now be made known through the church (the body of Christ…the Royal family of God) to the rulers and the authorities in the heavenly places.
This was in accordance with the eternal purpose which He (God the Father) carried out in Christ Jesus our Lord…
…in (union with) whom we (believers in Christ) have boldness and confident (direct) access (to Him) through faith in Him.
I (Paul) am telling the truth in (union with) Christ, I am not lying, my conscience testifies with me in the Holy Spirit…
…that I (Paul) have great sorrow and unceasing grief in my heart.
For I (Paul) could wish that I myself were accursed, separated from Christ (into the Lake of Fire) for the sake of (as a substitute for) my brethren, my kinsmen according to the flesh (the Jews)…
FOR I am not ashamed of the gospel (of God)…
This letter is written by me, Paul, a bond-servant and voluntary slave of Christ Jesus by my own choice, by the calling of God an apostle, and set apart by God the Father for the dissemination of the gospel message of God the Father, as a minister…
I do not want you to be unaware, brethren, you believers in Rome, that often I have planned to come to you and have been prevented by God so far…I want to come so that I may obtain some fruit among you also, even as I obtain fruit among the rest of the Gentiles.
LEADERSHIP and SELF-DECEPTION
byThe Arbinger Institute
The erroneous thought that you couldn’t possibly be the problem
FOR I am not ashamed of the gospel (of God)…
But God (the Father) demonstrates His own (unconditional) love toward us (all mankind), in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died (as a substitute) for us.
…and He Himself (the Lord Jesus Christ) bore our sins in His (own) body (in his true humanity) on the Cross, so that we (all mankind) might die to (the sovereignty of the) sin (nature) and live to (the standard of absolute) righteousness (imputed); for by His (the Lord Jesus Christ’s) wounds you were healed (once, for all time).
Therefore we have been buried (because of our union with) with Him (the Lord Jesus Christ) through (the) baptism (of the Spirit)…into (Christ’s) death…so that as Christ was raised from the dead (in resurrection) through the glory of (God) the Father, so we too might walk (have a lifestyle) in newness of life.
Now if Christ is preached (an He is), that He has been raised from the dead (and He has been), how do some among you say that there is no resurrection of the dead?
The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid; for I know that you are looking for Jesus who has been crucified.”
“He is not here, for He has risen, just as He said. Come, see the place where He was lying.”
“Go quickly and tell His disciples that He has risen from the dead…”
“No one has ascended into heaven, but He who descended from heaven: the Son of Man (the Lord Jesus Christ).”
“For David himself says in the book of Psalms, 'THE LORD (God the Father) SAID TO MY LORD (Jesus Christ), “SIT AT MY RIGHT HAND…”
“…UNTIL I MAKE YOUR ENEMIES A FOOTSTOOL FOR YOUR FEET.’”
…so that at the name of Jesus EVERY KNEE WILL BOW, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth…
…and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
“For God (the Father) so loved the world (all mankind), that He gave His only begotten (uniquely born) Son (the Lord Jesus Christ), that who(so)ever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.”
Trust in the Lord with all your heart And do not lean on your own understanding.//In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He will make your paths straight.
The Lord is the one who goes ahead of you; He will be with you. He will not fail you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed
Therefore the Lord longs to be gracious to you, And
therefore He waits on high to have compassion on you. For the Lord is a God of justice; How blessed are all those who long for Him.
