ROMANS – PHILEMON
• These 13 books are all of Paul’s letters.
• Paul was given a message distinct from
any other plan God has instituted with mankind.
He calls that
program the “Dispensation of Grace” (Eph 3:2) and the “Mystery” (Eph 3:3).
• For the first time we learn of God’s plan for HEAVEN through Paul’s letters. Remember, God created 2 places: Heaven & Earth.
The entire Bible, until Paul, has described God’s plan for the EARTH,
God reveals His plan for HEAVEN.
Israel’s promised domain is the promised Kingdom on EARTH,
whereas the Body of Christ will occupy HEAVEN
(1 Thes 4:17, Phi 3:20, 1 Cor 15:51-52, Col 3:1-4, Eph 1:3
& 2:6, Col 1:5).
• Paul was given instructions straight from God
to be the pattern for all believers in the Body of Christ (1 Tim 1:16).
• The information Paul received from Christ
for the church today is different from information given to
Israel. Peter says the information given to Israel
has been KNOWN since the world began (Acts 3:19-21),
but Paul says the information given to the Body of Christ
through him had been kept SECRET since the
world began (Rom 16:25).
• Instructions for the church today, then, are found in Paul’s letters,
and God expects us to heed them
( 1 Cor 11:1 & 4:16, Phi 3:17 & 4:9, 2 Thes 2:15).
• There are many aspects of the Mystery program
as given to Paul, but the most prominent is that anyone
can be saved by the blood of Christ apart
from earning it or proving it with their works,
but solely by the
belief that Jesus paid the full price for their sins
(Eph 2:8-9, Rom 4:5, Titus 3:5-7, Eph 1:7 & 13,
Rom 3:24-25, 1 Cor 15:1-4).
• The end of the Dispensation of Grace is marked by the receiving of the Body of Christ into Heaven
(1 Thes 4:13-18). Then God will resume His promised earthly program with Israel (Rom 11:11, 15, & 25-27).

b. His resurrection could not happen without deity: John 10:17-18,
c. His atonement is not eternal without the eternal quality of God
– Heb 7:23-27
d. His payment was not the quality
needed if he was not God: 2 Cor 5:19, Rom 5:9
e. To be exalted above all things and worshipped – Phil 2:9-10, Col 2:10
f. To fill up all in all, and for all things to be in Him – Eph 1:10, 20-23

WHAT DOES PAUL SAY ABOUT OUR ETERNAL SALVATION? ONCE SAVED,CAN WE LOSE OUR SALVATION?
Philippians 1:6 Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:
Romans 8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
Romans 8:2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.
Romans 8:3 For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:
Romans 8:4 That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
Romans 8:5 For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.
Romans 8:6 For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.
Romans 8:7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.
Romans 8:8 So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.
Romans 8:9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.
Romans 8:10 And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.
Romans 8:11 But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.
Romans 8:12 Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh.
Romans 8:13 For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.
Romans 8:14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.
Romans 8:15 For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.
Romans 8:16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:
Romans 8:17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.
Romans 8:18 For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.
Romans 8:19 For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God.
Romans 8:20 For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope,
Romans 8:21 Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.
Romans 8:22 For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now.
Romans 8:23 And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body.
Romans 8:24 For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for?
Romans 8:25 But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it.
Romans 8:26 Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.
Romans 8:27 And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God. * God Chose Us
Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
Romans 8:29 For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.
Romans 8:30 Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified. ( see Eph 1:4 )
Romans 8:31 What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?
Romans 8:32 He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?
Romans 8:33 Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God's elect? It is God that justifieth.
Romans 8:34 Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.
Romans 8:35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
Romans 8:36 As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.
Romans 8:37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
Romans 8:38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
Romans 8:39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
The strategy of Satan in the Dispensation of Grace is different than in other dispensations .
Knowing that many oppose themselves when they hear the word "dispensation",I must note that I do not care of the denominational opinions of men,rather I get my doctrine from the King James Bible 1769 and specifically from Paul's 13 letters,Romans through Philemon,according to the principle of Right Division
2 Tim 2:15
and in this letters I find the word "dispensation" four times.
1 Corinthians 9:17 For if I do this thing willingly, I have a reward: but if against my will, a dispensation of the gospel is committed unto me.
Ephesians 1:10 That in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him:
Ephesians 3:2 If ye have heard of the dispensation of the grace of God which is given me to you-ward:
Colossians 1:25 Whereof I am made a minister, according to the dispensation of God which is given to me for you, to fulfil the word of God;
SATAN'S STRATEGY is not what everybody thinks...
IT IS DOCTRINAL...with CORRUPT DOCTRINE he sends souls to HELL!
2 Corinthians 11:13 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.
2 Corinthians 11:14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.
2 Corinthians 11:15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.

Galatians 1:4 ( CHRIST) Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father:

YOUR BEST DEFENCE AGAINST THE WILES OF THE DEVIL
IS IN GETTING GROUNDED,ROOTED,BUILD UP,ESTABLISHED
IN THE SOUND DOCTRINE THAT
THE LORD JESUS CHRIST FROM HEAVEN
REVEALED TO THE APOSTLE PAUL,PREACHER and TEACHER OF THE GENTILES and is WRITTEN in the 13 LETTERS
ROMANS through PHILEMON
Whereof I am made a minister, according to the dispensation of God which is given to me for you,
to fulfil the word of God;
Even the mystery which hath been hid
from ages and from generations,
but now is made manifest to his saints:
To whom God would make known
what is the riches of the glory of this mystery
among the Gentiles;
Christ in you, the hope of glory:
So,you want to follow Jesus according to the flesh?
The works required under the Gospel of the Kingdom were these:
The Baptism of Repentance,
which was repenting/confessing/baptism
(Matt. 3:1-11, Mark 1:4-5, Luke 3:3, Acts 2:38, Mark 16:16).
Matthew 3:1 In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judaea,
Matthew 3:2 And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.
Matthew 3:3 For this is he that was spoken of by the prophet Esaias, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.
Matthew 3:4 And the same John had his raiment of camel's hair, and a leathern girdle about his loins; and his meat was locusts and wild honey.
Matthew 3:5 Then went out to him Jerusalem, and all Judaea, and all the region round about Jordan,
Matthew 3:6 And were baptized of him in Jordan, confessing their sins.
Matthew 3:7 But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees come to his baptism, he said unto them, O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come?
Matthew 3:8 Bring forth therefore fruits meet for repentance:
Matthew 3:9 And think not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, that God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham.
Matthew 3:10 And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees: therefore every tree which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
Matthew 3:11 I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire:
Mark 1:4 John did baptize in the wilderness, and preach the baptism of repentance for the remission of sins.
Mark 1:5 And there went out unto him all the land of Judaea, and they of Jerusalem, and were all baptized of him in the river of Jordan, confessing their sins.
Luke 3:3 And he came into all the country about Jordan, preaching the baptism of repentance for the remission of sins;
Acts 2:38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.
Mark 16:16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.
Selling all that you had
(Matt. 6:19-34, Matt. 8:20, Matt. 10:8-10, Matt. 13:44-46, Matt. 19:16-24, Mark 6:7-9,
Mark 10:17-23, Luke 3:8-11, Luke 9:1-4,
Luke 12:15-34, Acts 2:44-45, Acts 3:1-6, Acts 4:32-37, Acts 5:1-11).
Forgiving others of their sins against you
(Matt. 6:12-15, Matt. 18:21-35, Mark 11:25-26, Luke 6:37, Luke 11:4).
Maintain good works
(Matt. 5:20, Matt. 5:48, Matt. 16:27, Matt. 19:16-19, John 5:29).
This included very seemingly "little" sins, such as not calling someone a fool
Doing works meet for repentance
(Matt. 3:7-10, Luke 3:8-11).
Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you,
pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you.
You must do this to be a child of God
Bring forth fruit to abide in God's love or be cast into the fire
(Matt. 7:15-20, John 15:1-10).
Do the will of God keeping His words
Endure to the end of the Tribulation until
Christ comes without denying the Lord
(Matt. 10:22, Matt. 10:32-33, Matt. 24:13-14,
Luke 12:8-9, Mark 13:13, Rev. 2:7, Rev. 2:11, Rev. 2:17,

Heb. 10:16-17, Heb. 10:38 Heb. 11:31).
Do not take the Mark of the Beast
(Rev. 13:15-18, Rev. 14:9-11).
Do not try and save your physical life
by denying Christ in the midst of persecution,
you will lose your soul if you do
(Matt. 10:38-39, 16:25-26, Mark 8:35-36, Luke 9:24-25, Luke 17:33).
Do not blaspheme the Holy Ghost
(Matt. 12:31-32, Mark 3:28-29, Luke 12:10, 1 John 5:16).
Watch for Christ's Second Coming to the earth and be a faithful servant
(Matt. 24:42-51, Mark 13:32-37, Luke 21:34-36).
Do not hate your brethren
(1 John 3:14-15).
Take care of the Jews and believers in the Tribulation
DO YOU STILL THINK IT IS A POSSIBLE THING TO DO ?
ARE YOU NOT AWARE THAT CHRIST IS RISEN
AND SEATED AT THE RIGHT HAND OF GOD ?
YOU DO BETTER IF YOU TRUST HIS DEATH,
BURIAL and RESURRECTION
and GET SAVED BY GRACE through FAITH !
THE FREE GIFT OF GOD!!

AMEN ,to GOD ALL THE GLORY!
1 Therefore seeing we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we faint not;
2 But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God.
3 But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:
4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
5 For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus’ sake. 6 For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
Therefore being justified by faith,
we have peace with God
through our Lord Jesus Christ:
And the peace of God,
which passeth all understanding,
shall keep your hearts and minds
through Christ Jesus.
And let the peace of God
rule in your hearts,
to the which also ye are called
in one body;
and be ye thankful.
GOD,the Mighty God of Israel,
The Father,The Son,The Holy Ghost,
The Lord Jesus Christ,
THE HEAD of THE BODY,
THE GOD OF PEACE.
