WELCOME TO BARAH MINISTRIES
a Christian Church
Romans Chapter 1 - God’s Wrath is Directed Toward Deeds
…as it is written, “THERE IS NONE (not one creature who is) RIGHTEOUS, NOT EVEN ONE…”
…for all (creatures) have sinned and fall short of the glory of God…
Now all the tax collectors and the sinners (prostitutes) were coming near Him (the Lord Jesus Christ) to listen to Him.
Both the Pharisees and the scribes began to grumble, saying, “This man receives sinners (prostitutes) and eats with them.”
So He (the Lord Jesus Christ) told them this parable, saying…
“What man among you, if he has a hundred sheep and has lost one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the open pasture and go after the one which is lost until he finds it?”
“When he has found it (the lost sheep), he lays it on his shoulders, rejoicing.”
“And when he comes home, he calls together his friends and his neighbors, saying to them, ‘Rejoice with me, for I have found my sheep which was lost!'’”
“I tell you that in the same way, there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner (unbeliever) who repents (changes his mind about having a relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ) than (the rejoicing) over ninety-nine righteous persons (believers in Christ) who need no repentance.”
But if it (salvation) is by grace (God’s free gift, and it is), it is no longer on the basis of (your) works, otherwise grace is no longer grace.
…because by the works of the Law no flesh will be justified in His sight; for through the (Mosaic) Law (only) comes the knowledge of (your) sin(fullness).
…nevertheless knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the (Mosaic) Law but (a man is justified) through faith (alone) in (the Lord) Christ Jesus (alone)…even we (who) have believed in Christ Jesus (know), so that we may be justified by faith (alone) in (the Lord Jesus) Christ (alone) and not by the works of the (Mosaic) Law; since by the works of the (Mosaic) Law no flesh will be justified.
“Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved, you and (everyone in) your household (who also believes).”
Jesus said to (the apostle Thomas) him, “I am the way (to salvation), and (I am) the truth (of the Word of God), and (I am) the (Zoe) life (the resurrection life); no one comes to (God) the Father but through (believing in) Me.”
“For God (the Father) so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son (the uniquely born One) that who(so)ever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.”
“For God (the Father) did not send the Son (the Lord Jesus Christ) into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through (believing in) Him.”
“He who believes in Him (the Lord Jesus Christ) is not judged; he who does not believe (in the Lord Jesus Christ) has been judged already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.”
“He who believes in the Son (the Lord Jesus Christ) has (the) eternal life (the Zoe life); but he who does not obey the (command to believe in the) Son will not see (the Zoe) life, but the wrath of God abides on him.”
…and I (the Lord Jesus Christ) give eternal life to them (believers in Christ), and they will never perish; and no one will snatch them out of My hand.
…and there must be no filthiness and silly talk, or coarse jesting, which are not fitting, but rather giving of thanks.
Remember to give with the motivation suggested in Scripture
Each one must do just as he has purposed in his heart, not grudgingly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful (grace oriented) giver.
“I am the Lord, and there is no other; besides Me there is no God. I will gird you, (even) though you have not known Me…”
It was for freedom that (the Lord Jesus) Christ set us (believers in Christ) free; therefore keep standing firm (in the freedom) and do not be (in) subject(ion) again to a yoke of slavery.
“The heart is more deceitful than all else and is desperately sick; Who can understand it?”
For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of (unbelieving) men (and all mankind) who suppress the truth in unrighteousness…
Let no one say when he is tempted, “I am being tempted by God;” for God cannot be tempted by evil, and He Himself does not tempt anyone.
But each one is tempted when he is carried away and enticed by his own lust.
Then when lust has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and when sin is accomplished, it brings forth death.
Do not be deceived, my beloved brethren.
Direct disregard for God’s Person
Direct disregard for God’s laws
An unbeliever, who refuses to believe in the Lord Jesus Christ for salvation.
…for rulers and their authority are ministers of God to you for good. But if you do what is evil (if you break the law), be afraid; for rulers and their authority do not bear the sword if you do nothing (if you follow the law); for rulers and their authority are ministers of God, an avenger who brings wrath on the one who practices evil (breaks the law).
God’s response to each creature’s rejection of His unconditional love, of His sin substitute, the Lord Jesus Christ and of His instructions for how to be saved.
And the sea gave up the dead which were in it, and death and Hades gave up the dead which were in them; and they were judged, every one of them according to their deeds.
…because that which is known about God is evident within them (those who practice ungodliness and unrighteousness); for God made it (knowledge of God) evident to them.
Now it came about, when men began to multiply on the face of the land, and daughters were born to them…
…that the sons of God (beniha Elohim…angelic creatures) saw that the daughters of men were beautiful; and they took wives for themselves, whomever they chose.
Then the Lord said, “My Spirit shall not strive with man forever, because he also is flesh; nevertheless his days shall be one hundred and twenty years.”
The Nephilim were on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to (had sex with) the daughters of men, and they bore children to them. Those were the mighty men who were of old, men of renown.
Then the Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great on the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.
The Lord was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart.
Attributing human feelings to God that He doesn’t have for the purpose of human understanding
The Lord said, “I will blot out man whom I have created from the face of the land, from man to animals to creeping things and to birds of the sky; for I am sorry that I have made them.”
But Noah found favor in the eyes of the Lord.
“For I know the plans that I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope.”
Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you at the proper time,//casting all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you.
Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling, and to make you stand in the presence of His glory blameless with great joy,//to the only God our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion and authority, before all time and now and forever. Amen.
