10 And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.PLEASE READ: “Real Righteousness” in www.answersintheword.com
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. SEE: our class on “OUR NEW HEAVENLY BODY” in www.answersintheword.com
12 Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh.
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. All of the things of this life shall surely pass, and only whats done for Christ shall last.
14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. “The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.” (John 3:8)
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. “And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.” (Galations 4:6) God’s spirit within you will make you desperate for God and Jesus and the Holy Spirit and his WORD, and you will never be at peace or be satisfied until you are full of them ! “Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.”(Matthew 5:6). “As the hart panteth after the water brooks,so panteth my soul after thee, O God.My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God: when shall I come and appear before God?”(Psalms 42:1-2). “Whom have I in heaven but thee?and there is none upon earth that I desire beside thee.My flesh and my heart faileth:
but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever.”(Psalms 73:25-26)
16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:Gods people shine and there is a special light in their eyes especially when they are in the SPIRIT ! “Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend.” (Proverbs 27:17).
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. Remember Jesus is the Only Begotten Son of God, and we are adopted sons and daughters into the family of God, and our Heavenly Father God and Jesus his son (Our Saviour & Big Brother), and the Holy Spirit, our Spiritual Mother, they are our Heavenly Eternal Family. “But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:”(John 1:12).
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.“But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.” (1 Corinthians 2:9)
19 For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God. PLEASE READ ” Waiting” in www.answersintheword.com
20 For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope, Why do you think Adam and all of us sin? Because God who made us wants us to know why we need Jesus so much ! Think about that for a while, Selah.
21 because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.They do things different in Heaven than we do on earth.The future is as bright as the promises of God.
22 For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now.“But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day.”(Proverbs 4:18)
23 And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the first fruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body. PLEASE READ “Our New Heavenly Bodies” in www.answersintheword.com
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? “Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.”(John 20:29)
25 But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it. I don’t recommend that you pray to learn patience, but pray for the gift of patience.
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.Pray for the gift of tongues.It is a Spiritual language, when your spirit cries out to God.
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. Sometimes when you pray you come to a point when you don’t know what to pray for any more.Then you can start praying in tongues, when Gods spirit will take over and start praying thru you, and the Lord will understand what your spirit is saying. Pray for the gift of tongues.“I thank my God, I speak with tongues more than ye all:”(1 Corinthians 14:18)
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. “For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord.For as the heavens are higher than the earth,so are my ways higher than your ways,and my thoughts than your thoughts.”(Isaiah 55:8-9). The Lord has gotten me out of so many jams and mistakes that I have made and turned them around for good. How about you ?
Say this prayer to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. I believe you died on the cross for my sins ,and rose from the dead. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen.
