Romans 10 Continued
Contributed by Jerral Campfield

12 For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek, for the same Lord over all is rich to all who call upon Him. What a powerful thought for God created us all and we all matter to the Lord as He wants us to accept His love, mercy and, grace regardless of tradition, race or color of skin. God gave us all air, water and, food so we can work and live with a healthy body yet look at what many are doing as they do not care about what God is doing and going to do?  Lord help us to call upon you, that is praying to God that we can be full of the Holy Spirit so we are empowered to resist sins. 13 For “whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.” This is not a secret it is well known, but very hard to accept for it is too good to be true, many have called and received the blessing of the beatitudes. Prayer is the life of a Christian for it is the lifeline that gives fresh air that is pure and holy. The area of the Lord where persecution in the greatest is where the Lord is manifested the most for He lifts the pain and burden of the circumstance and gives hope and faith that does not forget who we worship and who we reverence and pray to for help.
Israel Rejects the Gospel
14 How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher? This made the Jews angry for the Gentiles were despised, but God loves the world and all within it. That is the reason we have preachers, evangelist, prophets and teacher that are approved by God to minister around the world to those that are lost, so they can be found of the Spirit of the Lord. Someone has to tell us the good news Jesus saves anyone that calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
15 And how shall they preach unless they are sent? As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who [b]preach the gospel of peace, Who bring glad tidings of good things!” I remember applying for the ministry and being asked the reason. I said the Lord called me from logging to working as a logger to farming and now becoming a minister of the Gospel. Minister are appointed by God to bring good news to others, it is a commitment to witness the forgiveness of sin and becoming alive for Christ. God is the Lord of the harvest and we need to pray that we can bring hope of becoming what God created us, so we can all achieve our potential as we abide in the vine Jesus. Isaiah 52:7 How beautiful upon the mountain are the feet of Him that brength good tiding, that publish peace; that bringeth good tiding of good, that publishes salvation, that saith unto Zion, thy God reigneth. Then Nahum 1:15 Behold upon the mountains the feet of him that. bringeth good tiding, that publisheth peace! O Judah, keep the solemn feast, perform the vows; for the wicked shall no more pass through thee; he is utterly cut off. We preach the gospel of peace being reconciled to God, becoming more and more like Him. To bring glad tiding to evangelize or spread the Gospel to all who have not heard is what minsters are in the Kingdom of God for. 
e inclined to be jealous and envies and see bitterness come and destroy all that is good. Sin is always death that punishes us by not accepting life. Lord Help us to see what God has promised to those that believe. 
20 But Isaiah is very bold and says:
“I was found by those who did not seek Me;
I was made manifest to those who did not ask for Me.” We are asked to seek so we can find, knock so it will be opened. Yet God is in control not as a ruler but as a friend giving good gifts that will always bless us. That’s the reason Jesus came as the Light of the World, the Bread of Heaven, the vine, so we can be productive in bearing goodwill and peace to all
 
21 But to Israel he says: “All day long I have stretched out My hands To a disobedient and contrary people.”
God never forgot Israel He has always stretched out His hands in love and forgiveness to all. God’s Hands are outstretched still for us all, black, yellow, tan or white, to come to the fountain and drink the water of life that is in Jesus alone. Gods hands are outstretched now, today! Let’s be careful we are not disobedient but want to obey Him as we adore Him.

Romans 10

Romans 10 New King James Version (NKJV)
 
Romans 10 is showing the need for the dissolving of the ceremonial laws, abolishing of the Priesthood and the burning of the temple bring about a world wide catholic church- state. Catholic means world wide Church that knows the Lord Jesus Christ as the priest, not a man but Divine Lamb of God. The Jews where not the only ones favored by God, but now the Gentiles. So Paul is trying to prove the reason for God including all, not just the Jews into the family of God as the Jews rejected Him. So he is showing two great truths. 
1. There is a difference between the righteousness of the law which they were wedded to, and the righteousness of faith offered in the Bible. Romans 10:1-11 
2. There is a difference between Jews and Gentiles they both have need of being justified by faith to be on the same level. God is not a respecter of persons, He loves the world, but do we love Him is the question of the ages. Romans 5:12-21
Israel Needs the Gospel
10 Brethren, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for [a]Israel is that they may be saved. This is Paul desire to see all the Jews accept the Lord, so they do not have to suffer from the judgement of Gods wrath to come. God does not want any to perish with the wages of sin, for it is death and that is hells torment. He wanted all to have salvation and that was his prayer. What does your soul cry out for? Is it not for Jesus to have His control, so we can become over comers of the sins that want to destroy us. That is the reason we need to pray for souls to be saved. For I bear them witness that they have a zeal for God, but not according to knowledge. The Jews where the bitter enemy of Paul and also against the Lord. The Lord wants us to love people by our words and deeds, or actions, attitude and behavior.  Zeal is a word used to someone that has a mission, or opinion according to the knowledge of being good, so the Lord is magnified. Here we see they had a zeal, but not according to knowledge of this new way of worship, reverencing, having faith and hope in God to answer their prayers.For they being ignorant of God’s righteousness, and seeking to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted to the righteousness of God. Ignorance is not being able to accept the truth of justification by faith, to become righteous and holy. It Is very difficult for us to submit to Gods will for we want to control ourselves in every area of life. As a follower of the Lord we abide, submit ourselves to abiding in the vine; Jesus, so we can be productive in bearing fruit that is good in every area of our lives. Our conscience is alive and sensitive to wrong and we confess, our imagination being alive to the truth and want to keep on accepting and doing what is pleasing to God. Our memories are aware of the cost of evil doing and we understand the reason for the turmoil and want to correct the wrongs in or lives, as we now have fellowship with the Lord that is the bases for our affection, so our soul are uplifted as we abide in the Vine; Jesus .
There is a cause for unbelief Ignorance of God’s righteousness that is strict justice, for sin is going to have consequence we suffer from. Then we are proud and conceited in what we do as being ok, for we are not responsible to any one and are free to do what we want. Righteousness is not what we were born with, it is something that has to be taught and the Holy Spirit within us teaches us if we are able to listen to the still small voice of God 
For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes. The law was designed to lead people to Christ, but it was not working as God wanted it to, so He gave His Son Jesus to live in the flesh like any new born baby. He showed Himself a healer, provider, protector of life and allowed people to be born again in the spirit of God. No longer a animal sacrifice, but now a human sacrifice of your putting yourself into the arms of the Lord to deal with your sin nature, to make you holy an pure before God and man. So, Christ is the end of the moral law of the Old Testament and became what the law could not do. That is Jesus death gave us life so we could obey His word as He empowered us for service. Are you interested in the satisfaction from the Lords table, or are you looking for what you do, or a job to bring satisfaction? It will never come for it is trust and believing the Lord that gives one the peace of mind who he is and where he is and where he is going!

Romans 9
Contributed by Jerral Campfield   
Friday, 21 September 2018

Romans 9 is going to prove Justification and Salvation are our as we have faith in God not any other.  It is not by the works of the law, but now grace which give us the assurance needed to know we are in the light. This is seeing the power of predestination applied to all as all people matter to God.
 
I am telling the truth because I belong to Christ. The Holy Spirit tells my heart that I am not lying. Thank the Lord He is still the way, truth and life and we are assured of it as we abide in the vine; Jesus. To know the Holy Spirit is real is to be able to talk in His tongue, not the tongue of a nation but the family of God. It seems like tongues in Acts 2:4 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak in other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance. This is not normal this is heavenly language that comes for the Spirit of God Himself. One has to experience what it is like in order to appreciate what God can do in our minds that control the tongue. We all speak the language normally the way our parents talk an d now we are apart of the family of God it is natural to talk in His language or tongue.  I have much sorrow. The pain in my heart never leaves. As Christians we hurt every time we experience rejection of the Spirit of God and the pain never goes away for we want other to experience God wonder and grace to forgive. I could even wish that I might be kept from being with Christ if that would help my people to be saved from the punishment of sin. Here Paul is willing to sacrifice what he has to save someone else from the punishment of sin, willing to give his life that others might be saved. Remember Moses said in Exodus 32:31-32 and Moses returned unto the Lord, and said, Oh, this people have sinned a great sin, and have made them gods of gold. Yet now, if thou wilt forgive their sin, and if not, blot me out of thy book which thou hast written. These are strong words of dedication and commitment to the Lord in the natural realm.They are of my own flesh and blood. Lord help us to see that life is very personal and our tongues are our tongues to speak the way we want and how we feel. It is very difficult to put one in the same package as someone else. In fact, it is impossible for us to explain how someone reacts to the experience others have? Lord help me to relax in what I have experience as I abide in You. They are Jews and are the people God chose for Himself. He shared His shining-greatness with them and gave them His Law and a way to worship. They have His promises. These are Jews Gods seed from Abraham and Jacob His chosen adopted into the family of God. Not their own but Gods as they obey the law to keep happy and blessed. Giving the right to glory in Gods ark of the covenant between the Cherubim and at Sinai the law. This was the glory of Israel to be guided by the Cloud by day and the fire at night. It is a covenant of peculiarity or strange as it is a type of grace by the giving of the law, Obey the law and receive forgiveness by grace.  The Jews had the temple, altars, priest, sacrifices, feasts and the institution relating to them to be honored above all else. They knew they were serving the true God not under bandage of sins rule by Rome. Thank the Lord their imagination, memory, consequences, reason were all wrapped up in affection towards God as their spirits worshipped, reverenced, faith and hope in God to answer their prayers. It was the law that gave them assurance of being delivered from evil. The early preachers came from this family. Christ Himself was born of flesh from this family and He is over all things. May God be honored and thanked forever. Let it be so. Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob were followers of God and where the early preachers. For God blessed them in their humanity and made them Spiritual being as they obeyed the law. So, God sent His Son Jesus to live among is but in the Old Testament He revealed the law to Moses which was given by God to be obeyed and when people did they were blessed beyond measure. Here Jesus came as a Jewish man that was born as a human baby devoted to doing His Father Gods business. This was very humbling for here He was a part of the God head becoming a man, all for the sake of His following as a human being His Father He could be dedicated to His Fathers will and not His own. It seems like greater the suffering the greater the blessing the Lord becomes to those who put their trust in the Lord. It seems like suffering is a part of our lives and it allows us to call upon the Lord so He can give us the assurance all is going to be OK for He is in control. All we have to do is let Him rule and reign in our lives.
I am not saying that God did not keep His promises. Not all the Jews are people God chose for Himself. God has not nor will not lie, Ishmael Haggar son given to Abraham by his wife did, so did Esau for he trespassed and sinned against God. Lord help us to keep our word for it is our life. Lord help us in this age of Grace to make sure we keep abiding in the vine so we can bear good fruit good for all including praying for our enemies. Everyone God created is not good for some do not want God to rule and reign for they want to  be like god able to do whatever they want. The Jews are Gods so is the Church as long as we trust and obey His law, His way, His truth and life, staying away for our way, or our truth an life. Not all of Abraham’s family are children of God. God told Abraham, “Only the family of Isaac will be called your family.” What a revelation no all children of Abraham’s are in the family of God, only those who remember who they are and what God created then for. Isaac had to be willing to give up his life to his father and we must realize we have to give up and surrender to the Lord will and not do whatever we think is OK! The Church today needs to learn John 15 so they can be assured of who they are and who they are following. God gave us two choices we can either follow the Lord or follow Satan and become addicted to all the forces of evil. Grace needs to run in our vines as we are fixed upon following and serving the Lord and His plan for or lives.
