Romans 7 New King James Version (NKJV) We will see our freedom from the law as we press on to sanctification 7:1-6; the excellency and usefulness of the law from Paul’s own experience. 7:7-14 Then a description of the conflict between grace and corruption in the heart 7:14-25.
Freed from the Law
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? It is strange we need laws to be obeyed if we are going to have order in societies around the world. We are seeing today lawlessness increasing to where anything goes. The truth is a lie and a lie is the truth.  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. The man and women were created by God to replenish the earth as they became married. This is the reason God created the women so man could have someone to confine in and appreciate talking to have communication with in a relationship that was full of love toward one another in the greatest sense. Love is not outside of marriage it is within Marriage as man and women have affection by actions and deeds.  So then if, while her husband lives, she marries another man, she will be called an adulteress; Lord help us to see the importance of marriage for it is a binding agreement regardless of the circumstance until one or the other passes away.  but if her husband dies, she is free from that law, so that she is no adulteress, though she has married another man. This is not only for the sake of the women, but the man as will, for God wants us to know something we can’t control death is in the hands of the Lord. When death happens to any married person they are free again to marry under the watchfulness of the Lord. 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. Thank the Lord for the fact that God created us so we can have a relationship with Him that is very personal, holy and pure, so we can have a healthy attitude about what is going on at all times, for He never leaves us or forsakes us.  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.Our carnal state is the one we have before conversion and our imaginationruns wild, for our consciencesis seared and we do not care what we do our who we hurt. The memorycan’t grasp reality that is true and wholesome as our reasoncan remember who we are which affect our affection to have relationships that are functional and beneficial to all. The carnal person has no faith-hope, no one to worship and reverence so prayer is not a assist and not heard for the sins prevent our prayers from being answered. Sin is real and we embrace it by loving evil by being devoted to it and care to make sure we please the natural man. Lust, is having conceived by the law, which is the strength of sin. 1 Corinthians 15:26 Sin bringeth forth sin and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death. This is what happens in many marriages to sin and the law. This comes when sin is working in our lives. This continues while the law is alive and we are alive to the law. Our. Second marriage is to Christ we are free to the law of sin and death and do not look to become satisfied in the lust of the eyes, ears, nose, mouth or touch.  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. Thank the Lord we are delivered from the Law as the Lord is the one we are married to and want to please so we are always connected to the vine to produce good fruit of goodwill and peace. We are obligated to God, His Son and the Holy Spirit to become empowered to serve Him and obey Him. The law becomes Gods chosen ones who He has called to the marriage of the Lamb as they open their hearts to Him. He gave His life so we can have a new life full of His grace, love and mercy to sanctify us keeping us pure and holy. We are in a new yoke where the Lord is able to carry the Load we have to carry. What a privilege to be married to the King of Kings and Lord of Lords, as we enter upon this new life born into Gods family. Now we are able to produce fruit unto God bearing godly seeds in every work we set out to do. Fruits of Righteousness, good works from a new nature as we are connected to the root of the vine. This is without controversy as one of the greatest mystery’s of all times. That we should serve in the newness of the Spirit and not in the oldness of the letter being married to a new husband that. give us the ability to change our ways. It is as we serve we become stronger and stronger to obey and accept the freedom from the addictions of sin. Luke 1:74-75 He promised that we would be saved from those who hate us and that we might worship Him without being afraid. Luke 1:75 New Life Version (NLV)
75 We can be holy and right with God all the days of our life.
2 Corinthians 3:3 New Life Version (NLV)
You are as a letter from Christ written by us. You are not written as other letters are written with ink, or on pieces of stone. You are written in human hearts by the Spirit of the living God.
2 Corinthians 3:6 New Life Version (NLV)
God is the One Who made us preachers of a New Way of Worship. This New Way of Worship is not of the Law. It is of the Holy Spirit. The Law brings death, but the Holy Spirit gives life.
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.” The Law is holy, just and good for all. Laws are as the lawmakers are. God is the law maker so He is always good so His law is good. It is holy and commands holiness, encourages holiness for it is the originator of Holiness, it is just and reasonable to all! It was given for the good of mankind to have peace and order in the world. It is true grace for the laws are holy and just for all. It is spiritual so our souls can thrive and achieve our potential. Hebrews 4:12 It is the discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. 
As the straight discovers the cooked so the mirror shows us the natural face with all it spots and wrinkles and deformities, so there is no way of coming to the knowledge of sin which is necessary for repentance, to peace and pardon, but by comparing our lives with the law. It is necessary to see lust means sin dwells in us. Eve Saw, Desired, Took and gave and they both had to hide from God. To covet is to desire, or want what. God said is not good. Men and women are blind to sin in the natural man, sin is corruption, evil and a lie until God shed the light, sin never changes. That the reason the law is a school master to bring us to Christ and opens the wounds so it can become healed. 
But sin, taking opportunity by the commandment, produced in me all manner of evil desire. For apart from the law sin was dead. Sin can’t change for sin is always missing the mark. We are seeing people try to classify sin and one greater than the other and God calls sin; sin.  Could this be people love sinning and seem to like being addicted to it, for they do not want to stop but continue to be insane becoming dead to it’s consequences.

 

 I was alive once without the law, but when the commandment came, sin revived and I died. Yes it is good to feel alive in our own opinion, feeling secure and confident of the goodness of our state. Paul before his conversion was out killing Christian and persecuting them, until the Lord came out. say Saul; Saul; why are you persecuting me! God got his attention. Here he was a student that set at the feet of Gamaliel, a doctor of the law a strict observer of it and a zealous stickler of it and did not know the meaning of the spiritual law. He had the law in his hand and head, but not in his heart. We see many who are dead in sin and alive to their opinion of themselves and it is their strangeness to the law that is the cause of their mistakes. But when I understood the love of the law sin was revealed and I died to sin, 10 And the commandment, which was to bring life, I found to bring death. Thank the Lord for the light that. reveals who Jesus is and what He came to do, save us from sins death. He saw the bitter root the corrupt bias, the bent to backslide, he saw sin in all its colors. I revived and came alive to the law of God and His provision He paid for my sin and I died to not sinning but renewing my mind to be that. ambassador for the Kingdom of God. 11 For sin, taking occasion by the commandment, deceived me, and by it killed me.Paul had all kinds of concupiscence as he was the best regenerated men that ever was, as touching the righteousness of the law blameless, yet sensible of all manner of concupiscence or sin that got his attention of wrong doing. To lean towards what is forbidden has been man’s problem since Adam and Eve ate the fruit God said do not eat. People are fond of the forbidden even today, people have an appetite for hurtful and prohibited things for it puts a cheat upon man and it is fatal and will kill anyone regardless of who they are. Sin is not mocked we are going to reap what we sow. Satan says you will not surely die? But remember He is a liar and the Father of lies. 12 Therefore the law is holy, and the commandment holy and just and good. The law is holy just and good for He conquered sins death and is Alive forevermore wanting us to follow Him and leave this world behind.

Law Cannot Save from Sin

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. Sin appears in it own color and is ugly and it can’t be any worse it is like a venom or malignity that is in sin, hurts when injected. It seems like today many who think they are saved do not have the fruits being produced in their lives and it is causing a lot of sick Christians. 14 For we know that the law is spiritual, but I am carnal, sold under sin. It is so easy to forget who we are and give way to the carnal body, soul and spirit and fall from God grace for our lack of abiding in the vine. 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 a sad cause of insanity for we keep on doing what is damaging our lives and our relationship with family and friends and life becomes a dred without purpose. One self esteem is gone and we feel so worthless for we can do what is right. 16 If, then, I do what I will not to do, I agree with the law that it is good.  It is so easy to think that there are degrees in sin and when we do we are fooling ourselves for Satan is the author of confusion and may are confused to day.17 But now, it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells in me. Strange how sin seems to be so apart of our lives and you open a web site sin is there and it is important we do not go there for it can become an addiction, especially sexual sins or sins of doing what we want not what God wants us to become involved with..  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. This explain our corrupt nature with imagination, reason, memory, conscience and affection is so much controlled by the fleshly desires than by Godliness of the Spiritual man.  19 For the good that I will to do, I do not do; but the evil I will not to do, that I practice.How true what I want to do  is good but I find myself doing wrong so easily, for it is so natural. 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. It is impossible for the natural fleshly man tol do what is right and that is the reason we need a new nature one that is ours as we abide in the vine; Jesus to bear good fruit that everyone can enjoy.

21 I find then a law, that evil is present with me, the one who wills to do good. Paul says I find a law that is evil within me that wants to do good but can’t.  22 For I delight in the law of God according to the inward man.I delight  in the law of God is always present as we all have a conscience that lets us all know rather what we do is right our wrong that keep our world in task.  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. It seems like everyone is in a battle against what is wrong, for if we were all ruled by wrong we would wipe ourselves off the earth. Now we have a check and balance that. is control by God that is getting weaker and weaker and sin is rampant today like never before. 24 O wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death?What a thought provoking question; who will deliver me? We are sinners that are in need of a savior and that is Jesus Christ. As long as we are alive we are in this body that. is surrounded by evils sin, our nature is corrupt which leads to death that stinks. He cries out oh Wretched man that I am. He seems to be carrying a cross of sins shame all the time until he gives it up and stops disobeying God and give God the opportunity to make him a new body, a new life that is hid in Jesus Christ our Lord.  Let’s get sick of sin and cry out to God for deliverance. He had a good conscience wanting to do good. He consented to the law gave a vote to the law. The law is good for me to have in my heart so I am molded by God. He delighted in the law wanting to comply. He wanted the law to have authority over him. He wanted the spirit to rule over the fleshly carnal mind. He wanted the new nature to rule and reign that was hidden in the heart 25 I thank God—through Jesus Christ our Lord! He served the law of God as he had a sanctified mind, a holiness about him that wants to praise the Lord. What a friend we have in Jesus is a song we need to sing more often, all our sin to carry at the cross of Calvary. So then, with the mind I myself serve the law of God, but with the flesh the law of sin.Thank the Lord for imagination time vividness equals reality that is a blessing and not a curse. God grace is greater than all our sins when we take them all to the cross for Jesus paid the price so we would not have to continue in our trespasses.
