ROMANS 5:19

Romans 5:19                    For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so also by one Man’s obedience many will be made righteous.”

 

PAUL IS GIVING A LECTURE ABOUT THE EFFECT OF ADAM’S DISOBEDIENCE ON HUMANITY. 

AS SOMEONE WHO HAD BEEN CREATED IN GOD’S IMAGE AND PERFECTION, UPON ADAM’S DISOBEDIENCE AND SIN, ALL HUMANITY WAS INFESTED WITH THE OUTCOMES OF THAT SIN. IN FACT, NOT ONLY WAS THAT STATE OF SINFULNESS PASSED ON, BUT MULTIPLIED, AND STILL CONTINUES TO DO SO. SOCIETY ONLY GROWS IN ITS STATE OF LAWLESSNESS/SIN. SO BY ONE MAN’S DISOBEDIENCE, THE REST OF US BECAME SINNERS.

JESUS/YESHUA CAME TO CHANGE THE STATE OF HOPELESSNESS. BECAUSE HE BECAME THE SACRIFICE WHICH TOOK ALL HUMANITY’S SIN ON THE CROSS TO PROVIDE AN ALTERNATIVE TO THAT STATE OF HOPELESSNESS, HUMANKIND RECEIVED THE OPTION TO LIVE IN RIGHTEOUSNESS BY THE POWER OF CHRIST’S DEATH, AND BY THE POWER OF HIS HOLY SPIRIT. WE WILL ULTIMATELY ARRIVE AT A STATE OF PERFECTION AND TRUE RIGHTEOUSNESS WHEN WE RECEIVE OUR HEAVENLY BODIES & GO TO BE WITH THE LORD FOR ETERNITY. 

BY CHRIST’S OBEDIENCE WE HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO BECOME LIKE HIM, RETRIEVING THE ORIGINAL STATE OF PERFECTION THAT MANKIND BEGAN WITH. THE CIRCLE WILL BE COMPLETED AT THE END OF THE AGE.
