Romans 7 New King James Version (NKJV)
Freed from the Law as we are sanctified 
Or do you not know, brethren (for I speak to those who know the law), that the law [a]has dominion over a man as long as he lives? Thank the Lord for the laws God put in place that gives us civility in life regardless of the laws man places upon us. We have seen Communism want to rule the people under them. We are seeing Buddha wants to control people by their laws of doctrine and we are seeing the Muslim world wanting to control all who are under their religious spill. The Lords laws are considerate of life for all for it is justice for all and no respecter of persons.  We are under grace that. requires we be holy and God promises us strength to do what He commands and forgives us when we ask forgiveness. So we are under a covenant of Grace not of works. We serve a new master Jesus Himself God and the Holy Spirit.  For the woman who has a husband is bound by the law to her husband as long as he lives. But if the husband dies, she is released from the law of her husband. Our first law was to the law according to our marriage, which is binding until death. When we die we are no longer under any law for now the law we accept, is either benefiting us or is a curse to us depending on who we are married to God, or the world? So then if, while her husband lives, she marries another man, she will be called an adulteress; but if her husband dies, she is free from that law, so that she is no adulteress, though she has married another man. Thank the Lord for order with in marriage that keeps us under God grace while we are alive, not living in sins domain.  Therefore, my brethren, you also have become dead to the law through the body of Christ, that you may be married to another—to Him who was raised from the dead, that we should bear fruit to God. Here we are again covered by God grace when our mates pass away to remarry without sinning, so life can continue being a blessing.  For when we were in the flesh, the sinful passions which were aroused by the law were at work in our members to bear fruit to death. The flesh operates in the carnal state, under the power of sins corruption. That is doing things that we want without thinking of God will, so evil becomes like a stream that is swelling higher and begins to rage becoming out of control. We embrace sin by loving it and devoted to it to please it. Its has become a law of sin that. bring disappointment and depression that lowers oneself esteem. James says in 1:15 Then when desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin, and sin, when it is full-grown, brings forth death. But now we have been delivered from the law, having died to what we were held by, so that we should serve in the newness of the Spirit and not in the oldness of the letter. Now we are seeing a change of behavior and attitude for the simple reason we are born again and wanting Gods will to be done, the law has not changed but we are empowered to obey God will as we abide in Him. We are obedient to the Lord like the wife is obedient to the Husband. We are not married to the things of the world but keep trusting and loving our creator God so we can be fruitful and have plenty of Righteousness and is good and pure for the body. Which is a product of our union with Christ we belong to the family of Gods. It is in Christ that we are created unto good works and peace. This is a new marriage one that gets better and better the older one get in life. For God is always providing what we need so we can rest in His loving arms to be empowered to love others and pray for our enemies.
Sin’s Advantage in the Law
What shall we say then? Is the law sin? Certainly not! On the contrary, I would not have known sin except through the law. For I would not have known covetousness unless the law had said, “You shall not covet.” What a revelation of who we are trusting in to become like Him, so we are not bound to sin, but are free from sins ugliness. It is the law that points us to Gods will. Then we want to be involved with God demands of holiness which He encourages, for without holiness we will not see God. It is the Lords way, truth and life that is right for all mankind. It is the spiritual that is more important then the soul and body. For who we worship, reverence, have faith and hope in to answer our prays that is able to take care of our conscience, imagination, reason memory and affections to where we are able to see the bodies eyes, ears, mouth, taste buds have the feelings of good mental health. We are seeing people having no direction no hope as Satan is deceiving even those apart of the Churches around the world. We have two different types of people saved and unsaved, lost and found, evil and good, becoming like the Lord or being like Satan. So Paul is showing us the soul and how it is of most importance. Other laws forbid compassing and imagining Godliness, which is treason in the heart, if we do not repent of wrong imaginations, reasons, consciences, memory of evil and having feeling for those who are lost. We would of not known sin unless we had a law. For straight reveal the crooked, as the wrong reveal the right. We need to see the difference between lust for wrong and hunger for the word of God. He Paul uses the word covet. People lust for another drink, another sexual experience with another, another hit on media, another thrill that is even greater and faster than the last. We are still blind tol the original sin, God said, do not eat, man saw, desired, took ate and gave and then all had to hide. Lord reveal to us the laws of God, let it be the school master teacher that bring us to You oh Lord. Sin is being and accepting the worse Satan has to give.    

But sin, taking opportunity by the commandment, produced in me all manner of evil desire. For apart from the law sin was dead.What a statement we did not have to learn how to sin it is natural. God wants us to be spiritual then we see the power of the laws of Gods 10 commandments, how they bring goodwill and peace to our hearts. Sin is revived or seen just as dust is seen in the light. May we see sins bitter root, corrupt bias, wanting to backslide, like the pig returns to the mud after being washed up. Sin as a mark or a color, deforming, defiling, lowing self-esteem and good mental health. It is like casting away the crown of righteousness. I was alive once without the law, but when the commandment came, sin revived and I died. Have you experienced the state of death because of sin consequences, or are you seeing the gift of God eternal life now and forever abiding in the vine, Jesus as John 15 reminds us of who we are? Are you walking in the light that reveals sins ugliness, forsakenness, is your eyes open to the way the Lord has prepared for you even in the tough times, have you seen God render or break up the rocks and remove them so you’re not hurt by unforeseen objects Satan puts in our way.10 And the commandment, which was to bring life, I found to bring death. Yes; do it my way is totally wrong, for that’s what Satan uses as a trap and he has in trapped millions of people to his way.  11 For sin, taking occasion by the commandment, deceived me, and by it killed me. Sin is enforces by I and it is not I it is God that came to rescue and saves us from our own faults and mistakes. 12 Therefore the law is holy, and the commandment holy and just and good.
13 Has then what is good become death to me? Certainly not! But sin, that it might appear sin, was producing death in me through what is good, so that sin through the commandment might become exceedingly sinful. Lord help us to see how weak we are so we make sure we are abiding in You so we can produce what you want us to produce. Lord help us to see that sin is sinful and seems to be getting worse rather than people becoming better for bitterness and lawlessness is rampant. 14 For we know that the law is spiritual, but I am carnal, sold under sin.Here we are seeing imagination times vividness equals reality we are sinners that struggle with imperfections. That proves we are in a battle for Satan never goes to sleep, neither does Gods law which empower us to become committed to Him who gives us grace to go through to victory over coming addictions that wants to destroyed our image of Godliness. We fight against the natural man born  to sin, until Jesus come in to sanctify us, clean us up with the blood of the lamb of Gods Son Jesus. God then quickens us convicts us so we cry out for help. Remember Jacob and Esau in the womb. Like between Canaanites and Israelites or like the house of Saul and David but it is the truth that prevails for greater is He that. is in us than in the world.  Notice people complain which speaks of not being fulfilled with nature we need Gods will to be done in our lives. We are carnal even when there is spiritual life and being saved we take on a new desire to become more and more like the Lord of Glory.  15 For what I am doing, I do not understand. For what I will to do, that I do not practice; but what I hate, that I do.What. the reason we do not understand the power of sin? Satan wants to deceive us and bring confusion and addictions that bind us up in prison of sinning. We are not yet purified until we abide in the vine then He can help us produce fruit as we serve Him, trust and obey Him.  16 If, then, I do what I will not to do, I agree with the law that it is good.If then is a comment that we are faced with all the time for we are under the power of God or the power of the enemy, depending on our attitude or behavior.  17 But now, it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells in me.Do you see the influence Satan wants to have over Gods goodwill and peace?  18 For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh) nothing good dwells; for to will is present with me, but how to perform what is good I do not find. If Paul was weak in the flesh don’t you thinks we are also. 19 For the good that I will to do, I do not do; but the evil I will not to do, that I practice. Lord help me to see imagination time vividness equal reality so I never forget who I am and how weak I am 20 Now if I do what I will not to do, it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells in me. Yes this natural; body is bent on doing whatever we think is ok for that is what Satan want us to do. So any time we sin it is missing the mark of what Gods purpose is for our lives.
21 I find then a law, that evil is present with me, the one who wills to do good. Yes the law can’t save us or help us for God is lift out of the picture so have no one to be responsible or accountable to. 22 For I delight in the law of God according to the inward man. This inward man is the one you can see wrapped up in this body, soul and spirit that. God want s to control and lead us into His holiness.  23 But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members. Are you seeing the power of the nature that is unholy unkind and addicted to all kinds of sin that. bars us from the joy of the Lords forgiveness, love and mercy.
24 O wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death? Paul here is calling himself wretched as a person that has died out to sins that. destroy the old man’s nature and give one a new nature that Is full of Godliness and holiness25 I thank God—through Jesus Christ our Lord! Thank the Lord He is the only one that can give us a good mental health about Who we are and where we are so we can see where we are going after this body dies. So He knew and remembered who he was and what He had to do to keep in the vine so he could bear productive fruit for all to enjoy.
So then, with the mind I myself serve the law of God, but with the flesh the law of sin. I hope you see the power of the mind that is dedicated to the Lord for nothing is impossible with the Lord. So when we abide in Him He empowers us to be what He created us to be. People of goodwill and peace so everyone can see and tell the good news Jesus saves keeps and satisfies all the time.
