Romans 4
The Doctrine of Justification by faith without the works of the law was contrary to the notions the Jews had learnt from those that sat in Moses’ chair. He wanted to prove by reason and example talking about Abraham who the Jews glorified as we all came from his seed. All that are saved are justified in the same way as Abraham was by faith not by works. Abraham was faithful to God as he was obedient to God law. The whole chapter is devoted to being justified by faith not works.
Abraham Justified by Faith
1. What then shall we say that Abraham our father has found according to the flesh? When you find something it’s for the simple reason your looking and when we are looking for the truth we find it, for the simple reason we wanted to be accepted and that is trusting, or having faith in God, who gives what man needs for being justified, as if we had never sinned.  When faith is at work, it produced fruit for we are abiding in the vine and it is normal to produce Godliness. For if Abraham was justified by works, he has something to boast about, but not before God. When we look at works we want to boast of what we have done and not what God does in our lives. So, Justification is based totally upon our faith in Gods ability to allow us to be ambassadors for the Kingdom of God. For what does the Scripture say? “Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness.’ It is our faith that has tremendous advantages, for it is God being able to work in us, as we are committed to Him, abiding in Him, not my will, Your will be done, Oh, Lord, is our way, truth and life You created for good will and peace. No one went through as much as Abraham for he was tested and tried more than any other man to show who was his leader. Now to him who works, the wages are not counted as grace but as debt. Genesis 15:4 I am thy exceeding great reward. We are so enriched, as everything we are we owe it to the Lord, for He did the work that His Father God required of Him as He went alone to the Cross. So, it was God’s grace that was extended to Him, as He arose from the grave of sins consequence and now has justified us, given us grace, to be sanctified, redeemed and glorified by our Lord, to make a difference in our world.
David Celebrates the Same Truth
But to him who does not work but believes on Him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is accounted for righteousness, just as David also describes the blessedness of the man to whom God imputes righteousness apart from works: Lord may we be able to relax in your hands that are outstretched to all, so we can be justified by our faith in You, so we can attain unto righteousness, as we are now walking and talking to Jesus our Father God and the Holy Spirit. David was forgiven when he confessed his sin it bought Him justification, mercy and grace, which is ongoing as we are becoming more and more like Jesus. The word imputes, is totally the work of the Lord on the cross, as He suffered and died alone. Jesus forgave His tormentors for it is only Pardoned people who are the only blessed people and thus the Lord pardons us when we accept the fact we are to be blamed for our sins. It is not blaming others, it is accepting we are sinners and need forgiveness, that is being born again with a new spirit of God with in us, keeping us seeking God for His bountiful blessings.
“Blessed are those whose lawless deeds are forgiven, And whose sins are covered; Blessed is the man to whom the Lord shall not impute sin.’ Blessed are those who know the truth that they are sinners and need to admit they are powerless and need help to empower them to do Gods will and not have their way.
Justified Before Circumcision
Does this blessedness then come upon the circumcised only, or upon the uncircumcised also? For we say that faith was accounted to Abraham for righteousness. It is a fact Abraham was justified by faith some 14 years before he was circumcised. This should silence the fears of the power uncircumcised Gentiles and lower the pride of the conceitedness of the Jews, who gloried in circumcision.  10 How then was it accounted? While he was circumcised, or uncircumcised? Not while circumcised, but while uncircumcised. God wants us to know it is more important to have faith in God that even being circumcised. 11 And he received the sign of circumcision, a seal of the righteousness of the faith which he had while still uncircumcised, that he might be the father of all those who believe, though they are uncircumcised, that righteousness might be imputed to them also, 12 and the father of circumcision to those who not only are of the circumcision, but who also walk in the steps of the faith which our father Abraham had while still uncircumcised. Notice He received a sign, then a seal; a sign to represent and instruct, a seal to ratify and confirm. There are signs of absolute grace and favor; they are seals of the conditional promises, or mutual seals. God does in the sacraments, seals us, to be a God, therein seals to be His people, Jews-Christians. A sign of that original corruption which we are all born with, which is cut off by spiritual circumcision, a commemorating sign of God’s covenant with Abraham-a distinguishing sign between Jews and Gentiles, a sign of admission into the visible church, a sign prefiguring baptism, which comes in the room of circumcision, now under the gospel, when (the blood of Christ being shed) all bloody ordinances are abolished; it was an outward and sensible sign of inward and spiritual grace signified thereby.  A seal of the righteousness of the faith becoming justified according to the promise of Deuteronomy 30:12
That He might be the Father of all those that believe. Genesis 4:30, 21 He is the standard pattern of Faith justified as the liberties, privileges, honors and estates. Of the fathers descend to their children. Abraham was the Father of believers and believing Gentiles through they are not circumcised.

Romans 3

Romans 3 New King James Version (NKJV) Here Paul is wanting to make sure we understand the way, truth and life about sin that affects both Jews and Gentiles for everyone is equal as all are sinner in need of help.
God’s Judgment Defended
What advantage then has the Jew, or what is the profit of circumcision? God choose to bless the Jews and anyone that obeyed the law. Yes, they were privileged and honored to be given a law that required a lot of work in preparing the sacrifice even of being circumcised.  Much in every way! Chiefly because to them were committed the oracles of God. God not only choose them, but gave them responsibility to obey the lively oracles or commandments written in the scriptures. The Urim and Thummim, the logia our breastplate of righteousness. The Old Testament was written in their own language. So, the Jews had the means of Salvation but did not have a monopoly of Salvation. What is hard to accept is many did not believe and still today many do not believe yet.  For what if some did not believe? Will their unbelief make the faithfulness of God without effect? This is a startling thought and it does not invalidate and over throw the prophecies or doctrines of the Bible. His word is going to accomplished even through today we are seeing the lie as truth and the truth as a lie from not only the media but many within the church world.
4Certainly not! Indeed, let God be true but every man a liar. As it is written:
“That You may be justified in Your words,
And may overcome when You are judged, God does not change and is still the same yesterday today and forever. It is man that listen to a lie in the very beginning and still is full of denial to the truth of Gods promises. Men are liars, God is the way, truth and life for He has pure, holy, words to give us assurance we know the truth to be set free of all sin. As we accept abiding in the vine letting God give us then justification. He allows us to maintain His Justice, truth and goodness as we have hope, faith, in worshiping God and reverencing his holy name as we pray for assistance to be able to run with patience with what God has blest us with.
But if our unrighteousness demonstrates the righteousness of God, what shall we say? Is God unjust who inflicts wrath? (I speak as a man.) Certainly not! For then how will God judge the world? Carnal hearts could feel they can do wrong and it is ok for that could be the reason for so much evil over riding good. God is going to punish sin for it has consequences and we cannot argue with Gods will. God is going to judge the world and the sins of the world
For if the truth of God has increased through my lie to His glory, why am I also still judged as a sinner? Sin is a lie and God hates lies and we can’t think it is ok to even tell white lies.  Satan is the father of lies and works at us to get us to think it is ok and it is not. And why not say, “Let us do evil that good may come”?—as we are slanderously reported and as some affirm that we say. Their condemnation is just. It is in the heart that we seem to do evil and feel we are justified by saying so with our mouths. Could it be we are living in a time of great deception as ministers are forsaking some doctrines of the Bible like eternal security, no need of repenting and forsaking evil. We are caught up with entertainment of the world rather than having a relationship with the Lord that is satisfying. Remember our Savior was accused to be in league with Beelzebub. Satan’s job is to cast dirt upon Christian minister and teachers of the world of God. It has been said, Lay slander thickly on, for some will be sure to stick. The best men and the best of truths are subject to slander. Blasphemoumetha or blasphemy in scripture usually signifies the highest degree of Slander, speaking ill of God
All Have Sinned
What then? Are we better than they? Not at all. For we have previously charged both Jews and Greeks that they are all under sin. What a truth for we are all born into this world of sins evil for it does not make any difference rather you were born in the time of the Old Testament you had to sacrifice an animal to atone or provide forgiveness and in the New Testament one has the opportunity to accept the Sacrifice of God giving us His Son Jesus to live among us and then to have to die and give of His own life as the ultimate sacrifice for your sin. Satan wants to bind and addict us so we sink to the lowest hell so he has control of your sinning. We are guilty of sinning and only accepting and abiding in the Lord will keep us truly honest and pure of body, soul and Spirit.
10 As it is written:
“There is none righteous, no, not one; Psalms 14:1-7 Ps 53:1-3; Isaiah 59:7-8 1. Habitual Defects. Yet Noah was righteous by grace as He obeyed the Lord and built the Ark; shelter in the time of storm.
11 There is none who understands; The fault lies in the corruption of the understanding, that is blinded, depraves, perverted by Satan. It is necessary we present ourselves a living Sacrifice as Romans 12 1-2 says.There is none who seeks after God. Sinners are fools for not seeking the Lord desiring the Lord in wanting a relationship. The carnal mind is in control burning with the lust of more of the world.
12 They have all turned aside; I am confident people to day do not want to know the truth for our consciences have been seared and we have accepted you do your thing and I will do mine and we will not bother one another but live happily ever after. This corruption is apostasy at the greates degree
They have together become unprofitable; Not producing good fruit but only evil works that is destroying families and relationships among people. Every defect is the source of evil and need to be cut off.
There is none who does good, no, not one.”  This is so true around the world today as we have witness President Donald Trump in Saudi Arabia talk about destroying ISIS as it is evil and all evil needs to be destroyed.
13 “Their throat is an open tomb; Ready to swallow up the poor and innocent wanting to do mischief, just like Satan wants us to do.
With their tongues they have practiced deceit”; We are seeing the Serpent seeking whom he can devour for he is the destroyer of all goodwill and peace
“The poison of asps is under their lips”; Can’t get any worse than this for today who can you trust. Our media and smart phone are being used to the max by Satan.
14 “Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness.” We are seeing people on TV that do not have any morals, so anything goes and people are full of bitterness that is driving people to lawlessness. Christian are given a tongue to worship and praise the Lord, not to curse God or even others
15 “Their feet are swift to shed blood;
15 “Their feet are swift to shed blood; We are seeing today ISIS and other forms of religious beliefs that seem to take great delight in destroying anyone that does not believe like they do. Yes this has always been the cause in some areas not it is worldwide.
16 Destruction and misery are in their ways; We are seeing terror around the world as people are becoming destructive tearing down decentcy and morality to be like God instead act like and be like Satan.
17 And the way of peace they have not known.” They have been taught from birth hate is ok and what you hate destroy. I find people do not want to be treated with disrespect and many just do not care. 18 “There is no fear of God before their eyes.” Fear is like anger it is our greatest weapons that keeps us connected to God Holiness and justice. The fear of God is the beginning of wisdom and be angry and do not sin for sin is turning on people and destroying character. Where no fear of god is, no good can be expected instead wreck and ruin.
