Do You Believe God?

Romans 3:21-4:3

8/18/19

Do you believe God?

 

 

21 But now, apart from the law, the righteousness of God has been revealed, attested by the Law and the Prophets

Romans 3:10 –

There is no one righteous, not even one.

 

 

 

22 The righteousness of God is through faith in Jesus Christ[q] to all who believe, since there is no distinction.

 

 

 

23 For all have sinned and fall short of the[r] glory of God. 

 

 

 

24 They are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus

 

 

25 God presented him as an atoning sacrifice[s] in his blood, received through faith, to demonstrate his righteousness, because in his restraint God passed over the sins previously committed. 26 God presented him to demonstrate his righteousness at the present time, so that he would be righteous and declare righteous[t] the one who has faith in Jesus.

 

 

24 They are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus.

 

 

 

27 Where, then, is boasting? It is excluded. By what kind of law?[u] By one of works? No, on the contrary, by a law[v] of faith. 

I was not saved because I am good….the Excutionar was turned back because Jesus is Holy and I claim His righteousness..he has set me right…and all who confess in obedience follow Jesus as Lord.

 

 

29 Or is God the God of Jews only? Is he not the God of Gentiles too? Yes, of Gentiles too, 30 since there is one God who will justify the circumcised by faith and the uncircumcised through faith. 

 

31 Do we then nullify the law through faith? Absolutely not! On the contrary, we uphold the law.

 

What then will we say that Abraham, our forefather according to the flesh, has found?[a] If Abraham was justified[b] by works, he has something to boast about—but not before God. For what does the Scripture say? Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him for righteousness.

Romans 3:9-20

Romans 3:

What then? Are we any better off?[d] Not at all! For we have already charged that both Jews and Gentiles[e] are all under sin,[f] 10 as it is written:

There is no one righteous, not even one.
11 There is no one who understands;
there is no one who seeks God.
12 All have turned away;
all alike have become worthless.
There is no one who does what is good,
not even one.[g]
13 Their throat is an open grave;
they deceive with their tongues.[h]
Vipers’ venom is under their lips.[i]
14 Their mouth is full of cursing and bitterness.[j]
15 Their feet are swift to shed blood;
16 ruin and wretchedness are in their paths,
17 and the path of peace they have not known.[k]
18 There is no fear of God before their eyes.[l]

19 Now we know that whatever the law says, it speaks to those who are subject to the law,[m] so that every mouth may be shut and the whole world may become subject to God’s judgment.[

 

 

What then? Are we any better off?[d] Not at all! For we have already charged that both Jews and Gentiles[e] are all under sin,[f] 

 

10 as it is written: There is no one righteous, not even one.

 

12 All have turned away;
all alike have become worthless.
There is no one who does what is good,
not even one.

.

 

 

 

 

Matthew 15: 19 For from the heart come evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, sexual immoralities, thefts, false testimonies, slander. 

 

 “Listen and understand: 11 It’s not what goes into the mouth that defiles a person, but what comes out of the mouth—this defiles a person.”

 

 

Romans 3:20 - 20 For no one will be justified[o] in his sight by the works of the law, because the knowledge of sin comes through the law.

 

 

22 The righteousness of God is through faith in Jesus Christ[q] to all who believe, since there is no distinction.

All under sin….in the natural state

 

1 Corithians 4:3-4

It is of little importance to me that I should be judged by you or by any human court.[a] In fact, I don’t even judge myself. For I am not conscious of anything against myself, but I am not justified by this. It is the Lord who judges me.

Acts 2; 42 They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching, to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread, and to prayer.

43 Everyone was filled with awe, and many wonders and signs were being performed through the apostles. 44 Now all the believers were together and held all things in common. 45 They sold their possessions and property and distributed the proceeds to all, as any had need. 46 Every day they devoted themselves to meeting together in the temple, and broke bread from house to house. They ate their food with joyful and sincere hearts, 47 praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. Every day the Lord added to their number[l] those who were being saved.

--- this is John 17:20- 23 ---- 

 

 

 

 

1 John 1 What was from the beginning, what we have heard, what we have seen with our eyes, what we have observed and have touched with our hands, concerning the word of life— that life was revealed, and we have seen it and we testify and declare to you the eternal life that was with the Father and was revealed to us— what we have seen and heard we also declare to you, so that you may also have fellowship with us; and indeed our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son Jesus Christ. 

 

 

If we walk in the light as he himself is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin.

When our devotion is off, our fellowship is off, our message is off, we are out of tune!

 

If we are out tune with Jesus, then we are out of tune with the church.

1 John 1:This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light, and there is absolutely no darkness in him. If we say, “We have fellowship with him,” and yet we walk in darkness, we are lying and are not practicing the truth. If we walk in the light as he himself is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin. If we say, “We have no sin,” we are deceiving ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

Forgetting the Esteem

 

 

I Corinthians 4

A person should think of us in this way: as servants of Christ and managers of the mysteries of God. In this regard, it is required that managers be found faithful. It is of little importance to me that I should be judged by you or by any human court.[a] In fact, I don’t even judge myself. For I am not conscious of anything against myself, but I am not justified by this. It is the Lord who judges me. So don’t judge anything prematurely, before the Lord comes, who will both bring to light what is hidden in darkness and reveal the intentions of the hearts. And then praise will come to each one from God. Now, brothers and sisters, I have applied these things to myself and Apollos for your benefit, so that you may learn from us the meaning of the saying: “Nothing beyond what is written.” The purpose is that none of you will be arrogant, favoring one person over another. For who makes you so superior? What do you have that you didn’t receive? If, in fact, you did receive it, why do you boast as if you hadn’t received it?

 

 

  -  It is of little importance to me that I should be judged by you or by any human court.[a] In fact, I don’t even judge myself.

 

 

 

 

For I am not conscious of anything against myself, but I am not justified by this. It is the Lord who judges me.

 

 

 

 

 

1 Timothy 1:15

 

15 This saying is trustworthy and deserving of full acceptance: “Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners”—and I am the worst of them. 

 

16 But I received mercy for this reason, so that in me, the worst of them, Christ Jesus might demonstrate his extraordinary patience as an example to those who would believe in him for eternal life. 17 Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only[b] God, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen.

 

1 Corinthians 4

Now, brothers and sisters, I have applied these things to myself and Apollos for your benefit, so that you may learn from us the meaning of the saying: “Nothing beyond what is written.” The purpose is that none of you will be arrogant, favoring one person over another. For who makes you so superior? What do you have that you didn’t receive? If, in fact, you did receive it, why do you boast as if you hadn’t received it? You are already full! You are already rich! You have begun to reign as kings without us—and I wish you did reign, so that we could also reign with you! 

 

 

 

 

It is of little importance to me that I should be judged by you or by any human court.[a] In fact, I don’t even judge myself.

 

 

Romans 8:Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those in Christ Jesus,[a] because the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you[b] free from the law of sin and death. What the law could not do since it was weakened by the flesh, God did. He condemned sin in the flesh by sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh as a sin offering,[c] in order that the law’s requirement would be fulfilled in us who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.

 

: “Nothing beyond what is written.” The purpose is that none of you will be arrogant, favoring one person over another.

Isaiah 28:4

The fading flower of his beautiful splendor,
which is on the summit above the rich valley,
will be like a ripe fig before the summer harvest.
Whoever sees it will swallow it
while it is still in his hand.

 

 

Nahum 3

12 All your fortresses are fig trees
with figs that ripened first;
when shaken, they fall—
right into the mouth of the eater!

 

Mark 13:28-29

28 “Learn this lesson from the fig tree: As soon as its branch becomes tender and sprouts leaves, you know that summer is near. 29 In the same way, when you see these things happening, recognize[e] that he[f] is near—at the door.

 

Luke 2929 Then he told them a parable: “Look at the fig tree, and all the trees.

 

Nahum 3:

I am against you.
This is the declaration of the Lord of Armies.
I will lift your skirts over your face
and display your nakedness to nations,
your shame to kingdoms.
I will throw filth on you
and treat you with contempt;
I will make a spectacle of you.
Then all who see you will recoil from you, saying,
“Nineveh is devastated;
who will show sympathy to her?”
Where can I find anyone to comfort you?........

18 King of Assyria, your shepherds slumber;
your officers sleep.
Your people are scattered across the mountains
with no one to gather them together.
19 There is no remedy for your injury;
your wound is severe.
All who hear the news about you
will clap their hands because of you,
for who has not experienced
your constant cruelty?

 

 

I am against you. –

Jeremiah 23:“I will gather the remnant of my flock from all the lands where I have banished them, and I will return them to their grazing land. They will become fruitful and numerous. I will raise up shepherds over them who will tend them. They will no longer be afraid or discouraged, nor will any be missing.” This is the Lord’s declaration

 

John 10: 14 “I am the good shepherd. I know my own, and my own know me, 15 just as the Father knows me, and I know the Father. I lay down my life for the sheep. 16 But I have other sheep that are not from this sheep pen; I must bring them also, and they will listen to my voice. Then there will be one flock, one shepherd. 17 This is why the Father loves me, because I lay down my life so that I may take it up again. 18 No one takes it from me, but I lay it down on my own. I have the right to lay it down, and I have the right to take it up again. I have received this command from my Father.”

 

 

 

Joel 2: 32 Then everyone who calls
on the name of the Lord will be saved,

Nahum 1:1-2

1 The pronouncement concerning Nineveh. The book of the vision of Nahum the Elkoshite.

2 The Lord is a jealous and avenging God;
the Lord takes vengeance
and is fierce in[a] wrath.
The Lord takes vengeance against his foes;
he is furious with his enemies.

 

 

The Lord is slow to anger but great in power;
the Lord will never leave the guilty unpunished.
His path is in the whirlwind and storm,
and clouds are the dust beneath his feet.

 

 

He rebukes the sea and dries it up,
and he makes all the rivers run dry.
Bashan and Carmel wither;
even the flower of Lebanon withers.
The mountains quake before him,
and the hills melt;
the earth trembles[b][c] at his presence—
the world and all who live in it.
Who can withstand his indignation?
Who can endure his burning anger?
His wrath is poured out like fire;
even rocks are shattered before him.

 

 

7 The Lord is good,
a stronghold in a day of distress;
he cares for those who take refuge in him.

 

Luke 22: 19 And he took bread, gave thanks, broke it, gave it to them, and said, “This is my body, which is given for you. Do this in remembrance of me.”

20 In the same way he also took the cup after supper and said, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which is poured out for you.

 

 

 

Hebrews 8: 5 They serve a copy and shadow of the heavenly things. For when Moses was about to erect the tent, he was instructed by God, saying, "See that you make everything according to the pattern that was shown you on the mountain."

 

 

 

Hebews 8: 6 But as it is, Christ has obtained a ministry that is as much more excellent than the old as the covenant he mediates is better, since it is enacted on better promises. 

7 For if that first covenant had been faultless, there would have been no occasion to look for a second.

 

 

 

 

 

 

But he will completely destroy Nineveh[d]
with an overwhelming flood,
and he will chase his enemies into darkness.

Whatever you[e] plot against the Lord,
he will bring it to complete destruction;
oppression will not rise up a second time.
10 For they will be consumed
like entangled thorns,
like the drink of a drunkard
and like straw that is fully dry.[f]
11 One has gone out from you,[g]
who plots evil against the Lord,
and is a wicked counselor.

 

 

 

12 This is what the Lord says:

Though they are strong[h] and numerous,
they will still be mowed down,
and he[i] will pass away.
Though I have punished you,[j]
I will punish you no longer.
13 For I will now break off his yoke from you
and tear off your shackles.

 

 

Ephesians 5: 15 Pay careful attention, then, to how you live—not as unwise people but as wise—16 making the most of the time,[d] because the days are evil. 17 So don’t be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is

 

 

 

 

13 For I will now break off his yoke from you
and tear off your shackles.

 

 

 

15 Look to the mountains—
the feet of the herald,
who proclaims peace.
Celebrate your festivals, Judah;
fulfill your vows.
For the wicked one will never again
march through you;
he will be entirely wiped out.

 

 

 Romans10:13-15

13 For everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.[c]

 

Revelation 19: Then I saw heaven opened, and there was a white horse. Its rider is called Faithful and True, and he judges and makes war with justice. 12 His eyes were like a fiery flame, and many crowns[d] were on his head. He had a name written that no one knows except himself. 13 He wore a robe dipped in blood, and his name is called the Word of God. 14 The armies that were in heaven followed him on white horses, wearing pure white linen. 15 A sharp[e] sword came from his mouth, so that he might strike the nations with it. He will rule[f] them with an iron rod. He will also trample the winepress of the fierce anger of God, the Almighty. 16 And he has a name written on his robe and on his thigh: King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

 

Romans 10

14 How, then, can they call on him they have not believed in? And how can they believe without hearing about him? And how can they hear without a preacher?15 And how can they preach unless they are sent? As it is written: How beautiful[d] are the feet of those who bring good news.
