Thus Saith Paul
Romans Chapter Six
Is Yahweh's Law Bondage?
In giving this chapter a thorough read through, as well as the rest of Romans, this afternoon, I was stumped as to what on earth "my problem with Paul is." I decided to take a break and meditate on the things Paul said, then took it to my Father Yahweh, in prayer. I asked Him what it is- is it me? Am I just way off my rocker, where Paul is concerned? Do I just despise his teachings because I don't want to follow them, like so many Christians tell me? After much soul-searching, Yahweh told me clearly what is wrong with the words of Paul in general but especially in this sixth chapter of Romans.
Yahweh said, "He is saying My Law is bondage." Then Yahweh opened my understanding, to the fact that the spirit of all Paul's writings, is anti-Law, thus anti-Yahweh, thus antichrist. I felt a huge weight lift off me; no doubt, a weight that came from having read from this chapter, all the way through to chapter sixteen. Praise Yahweh Most High and Holy. Hallelu'Yah! Paul has a way of twisting godless concepts and ideas, with the Word of Yahweh, just enough that if we aren't being protected by Yahweh, we can be (and billions are) sucked right in. Paul has a sneaky way of making the Good things of Yahweh, sound terrible; even sinful and the spirit of Paul's writings, is purely evil. Evil works in such a way, as to disguise itself with the good. I had to check my motives yet again, in even doing this project, and all I can say, is I have to, so I am; for myself and for my Father in Heaven.
Having said that, time to get into Romans Chapter Six.
Romans 6:1-3 What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, (meaning to Yahweh's law) live any longer therein? Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death?
*NOTE: Keep in mind, that in the previous chapter we saw exactly what Paul means by sin: THE LAW OF YAHWEH, which Paul said was only given, so that sin would abound (Romans 5:20) but now, since we're no longer under the law, but under grace, (Romans 3:19, 6:14) we're no longer accountable to keep Yahweh's law, thus freed from sin. He said where there is no law, there is no sin.. (Romans 4:15, 5:13)
What an enticing, (albeit sickening) statement. This entire chapter, in fact, is oozing with words that taste as sweet as honey, going down, but make the belly bitter. Yes, I am alluding to something, but do not have the confirmation yet, to outright say what I've been thinking, for months. Regardless, the writings of Paul, (if he is indeed the antichrist, which more and more, I'm certain he is), are so sweet sometimes; so emotional, deep, passionate and intriguing, this is precisely why so many become Paul devotees, over, above and instead of devotees of Yahweh; the Words of Yahshua and the Word of the law and the prophets. It's not far-fetched to say that Paul has gained more disciples than Yahshua Himself ever did, which fulfills Yahshua's prophecies perfectly. The whole world will be deceived; (Rev. 13:11-14) even the very elect of Yahweh, if that were possible. (Matt. 24:24) That's sobering isn't it?
The whole concept of being dead to sin, thus no longer considered sinners, (through believing Paul's gospel) is what captures (hooks) people, into the enemy's net. Who doesn't want to be dead to sin- not to have to live up to Yahweh's high, but righteous standards or face the consequences for their own, antichrist thoughts, words and actions? Very subtly, and once again, Paul has told us that if there is no law, we will be dead to sin: sin meaning the law itself.. YES YES YES and YES again, Yahshua died for us; to redeem us, (His friends) by His Own Blood, from sin. But are we freed from sin outside the truth, which is the law/Word of Yahweh? We still walk, talk, breathe, eat and sleep in flesh and blood bodies. We are surrounded by sinful influences.
Sin crouches (LIES) at our doors (hearts), (Genesis 4:7), but if we resist the devil, he will flee. (James 4:7) Every moment, of every day can be an opportunity to break the commandments of Yahweh and of Yahshua, thus sin. So no. We are not dead to sin but unrepentant sin causes our death, and casting the law/Word of truth behind our backs, (so we can't see it thus be convicted by it), and then trying to enter the kingdom of Yahweh some other way, is the worst sin of all. Paul provides that other way and calls it Righteousness and Holiness. Woe to him and all who believe in him.
Think for another moment. Are we dead to sin? Only according to Paul's gospel. The truth is, sin is dead to us if we cleave to the Father in Heaven and to the Word of His law and if we keep the commandemtns of His Son, which break us free from the lies of the enemy, who entices us to sin. Sin still exists and if we let our guard down, we can and do still sin. Our beloved brother and the Apostle of Yahshua, Peter, even denied Yahshua, not once, but three times, in a moment of fear for his life. Yahshua is merciful, kind, compassionate, full of patience, long-suffering and understanding when we make mistakes, stumble and fall into the pit. His mercy towards they who LOVE Him (whom He describes as they who keep His commandemnts) is new each and every morning. Nobody's perfect. Nobody can walk a perfect line forever without stumbling sometimes. He knows that. That's why He laid His own body down for us; to be our sacrificial Lamb, by whom and through whose Word, we can be washed clean, renewed, sanctified, restored to Him and redeemed FROM the enemy who constantly sets snares for our feet. As John the Beloved said:
I John 2:1-5 My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous: And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for our's only, but also for the sins of the whole world. And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments. He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him.
But if we deliberately break Yahweh's commandments, and if we are neither cold nor hot about being faithful to Him, then He will spew us out of His mouth. (Please Read Letter to Laodicea). Paul has merely changed the wording for the same concept he's been writing about so far:
Where there is no law, there is no sin.
We are redeemed by Yahshua from sin. What does this mean? It means, by obedience to His Words, and by following in His Ways (which were His Father's Words and Ways), Yahshua redeems us from/out of the earth. In other words, His Words, which are Spirit and are Life, if we continue in them, (endure to the end), are the words that anchor us to the true vine: the tree of life in the midst of the kingdom of Heaven. So are we dead to sin? No. We are alive In Yahshua, by loving and obeying/abiding in the truth that frees us from sinning against the commandments of Yawheh. What is sin? Sin is the breaking of Yahweh's commandments and sin is disobedience to the Words He spoke to us, through Yahshua. Why did Yahshua come in the flesh in the first place? He said:
John 10:10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. (*and no, all you prosperity preachers, this does not mean earthly gain.)
Because I don't want to keep repeating myself, if you haven't yet read from chapter one, until now, I feel you should. The thief is who? Yahshua describes the thief as someone who doesn't enter the sheepfold (the kingdom of heaven) by the Door, which is Yahshua. The thief climbs up some other way, into the fold. The thief steals truth, by deceit; by casting the truth to the ground. (Daniel 8:12) The thief makes void the commandments of Yahweh, in preference for lies, that entice us into a false sense of peace and safety with Yahweh: Peace outside His Word, which is the truth, which is His very Spirit and Life, eg., Himself. The thief is a murderer because unless we know and love the truth, (Yahweh's Law/Word) we are in bondage to the lies that lead to sin, which bring us under Yahweh's curse and lead to destruction.
John 8:31-32 Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
Yahweh said the same thing, because Yahshua IS the Word of Yahweh:
Isaiah 8:16 Bind up the testimony, seal the law among my disciples. (The commandments of Yahweh and the testimony of Yahshua are His seal. You can't have one and not the other. They are ONE- Yahshua said, "I and my Father are one.")
Now let me show you something fascinating:
Remember all we've discussed about it being Yahweh, Himself, who sets the snare for the wicked and unbelieving in HIM, His law, His words etc.? Just a reminder:
Habakkuk 2:13 Behold, is it not of the LORD of hosts that the people shall labour in the very fire, and the people shall weary themselves for very vanity?
And remember all we've discussed about the thief entering the sheepfold some other way, including Paul and anyone else who tries to enter the kingdom of Heaven, but by the Word of Yahweh, which is Yahshua?
Revelation 3:3 Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee. (Please Read Letter to Sardis)
Revelation 16:15 Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame.
It's nice to listen to Paul, especially when we don't want to listen to Yahweh. Yahweh has said that it's He, Himself, who sets up the disobedient- they who won't seek Him to know Him and follow Him by His Word (life) to the kingdom of heaven. Why? It's called judgement. It's nice to believe Paul, who tells us that we're dead to sin and because we were baptized into Christ, we were also baptized into death , until you realize what exactly Paul is saying.
Yahshua said He has come so we might have life and life more abundantly; that we will know the truth, through His example and His Words, and the truth will set us free. Yahshua said the thief comes to rob, kill and destroy but He has come to give us the truth that gives us everlasting life, if we continue in His Word. What is sin, except believing in lies and following a liar, instead of in the truth, and following The Most High?
After Yahweh delivered the ten commandments (which are NOT grievous to keep), the following happened:
Exodus 20:18-20 And all the people saw the thunderings, and the lightnings, and the noise of the trumpet, and the mountain smoking: and when the people saw it, they removed, and stood afar off. And they said unto Moses, Speak thou with us, and we will hear: but let not God speak with us, lest we die. And Moses said unto the people, Fear not: for God is come to prove you, and that his fear may be before your faces, that ye sin not.
Matthew 8:21-22 And another of his disciples said unto him, Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father. But Jesus said unto him, Follow me; and let the dead bury their dead.
Want to see another fascinating prophecy? The people who labor in the very fire, instead of for the Word of Yahweh, are the Harlot Church working together with Satanic world leaders. They will think they are warring against antichrist, when Yahshua comes with His Kingdom and all His saints and all His Holy Angels. Yahweh has blinded them because they wouldn't believe Him, but rather, believed Paul, (and others) whose endtime prophecies, we will get into once we hit 1 Corinthians and II Thessalonians. Why do they labour in the very fire, for vanity? Because they think they're the army of Yahweh, but are really the army of Satan.
The army of Yahweh will descend on this earth in fierce wrath to destroy all they who hate Him. The Christian churches are preparing for war against antichrist, because they do not even know, they are the army of antichrist. They don't know that antichrist is here and has been since the beginning, inhabiting varius people throughout the ages. They're awaiting some great appearing of the evil one, but it's Yahweh they will war against and Yahweh who will utterly crush them out. Fascinating isn't it? Please study Joel. A false, Messianic presence is here: He's the one all religions are hailing as the Lord of Love. This Lord of Love (who has many names, including Jesus, Imam Mahdi, and Maitreya) will lead the lawless (Wordless) ones to unite and to war against Yahweh Himself. New Agers, Muslims, Jews, Budhists, and Christians alike, follow this Lord of Love, now, in all its varying forms.
Zechariah 5:1-4 Then I turned, and lifted up mine eyes, and looked, and behold a flying roll. And he said unto me, What seest thou? And I answered, I see a flying roll; the length thereof is twenty cubits, and the breadth thereof ten cubits. Then said he unto me, This is the curse that goeth forth over the face of the whole earth: for every one that stealeth shall be cut off as on this side according to it; and every one that sweareth shall be cut off as on that side according to it. I will bring it forth, saith the LORD of hosts, and it shall enter into the house of the thief, and into the house of him that sweareth falsely by my name: and it shall remain in the midst of his house, and shall consume it with the timber thereof and the stones thereof.
I will leave it at that- wishing I could say more, but Praise Yahweh Most High and Holy, for He has promised that whoever returns to Him, with all their heart, might, mind and strength, to worship Him in Spirit and in Truth (which are the same), He will spare and deliver and cleanse by the Blood of His Lamb. But whoever won't abide in Him, will be brought into Satan's (the thief's) house(s) and the curse of disobedience to His Word/Law/Son/Spirit/Life will be inflicted upon them because they believed falsehoods of every kind. If the Father's House is the New Jerusalem, the thief's house is the false New Jerusalem- aka- The synagogue of Satan.
Jeremiah 5:7 How shall I pardon thee for this? thy children have forsaken me, and sworn by them that are no gods: when I had fed them to the full, (By the Bread He Sent From Heaven- Yahshua) they then committed adultery, and assembled themselves by troops in the harlots' houses.
Jeremiah 5:27 As a cage is full of birds, so are their houses full of deceit: therefore they are become great, and waxen rich.
Again, Paul said:
Romans 6:3 Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death?
Whoever is IN Yahshua Ha Mashiach, is not baptized into His death. Instead, they are baptized by HIM- through His Word, (which is Spirit and Life), into His Life. As Yahshua said, "Follow Me- Let the dead bury their dead." (Matt. 8:22) Yahshua also said:
Matthew 24:28 For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together.
What is a carcase, but a dead body? Who are these eagles Yahshua refers to, but vultures (evil spirits) who thrive on the dead body? Yahshua said:
Matthew 24:43-44 But know this, that if the master of the house had known in what watch the thief was coming, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken through. Therefore be ye also ready; for in an hour that ye think not the Son of man cometh.
Romans 6:4-7 Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection: Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin. For he that is dead is freed from sin.
Sounds wonderful doesn't it? If we are baptized into the death of Christ (saith Paul), then we take on the likeness of His death. Our 'old self' is crucified with Him, so the old, sinful self, is also crucified. If this is the case, then how can we be servants of sin anymore? We're dead after all. Because we're dead, we are freed from sin.
Incredible deceit here- almost too profound for my simple mind to process, except that the Spirit of Truth is my only Helper on this. If we are baptized into the death of Christ, we are dead, not alive. Do we want to take on the image of death? Or do we want to be alive in the Truth that only comes by the Word of Truth? Remember that Paul's definition of sin, is the law- having to live by it and under it and thus subject to its curse, since he reasons, we cannot keep the law in the first place. So lets all die then, shall we? Then we will be free from the law, thus free from sin. No thank-you Paul. I will follow Yahshua and let the dead, bury their dead. Amein.
Will we really be in "the likeness of His resurrection," if we are baptized into death, thus no longer under the law of Yahweh, which IS His Life? Really? No. We will be the walking dead who think we are alive, but are merely deceived.
Romans 6:8-11 Now if we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him: Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him. For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God. Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Excellent. Since we know what Paul really means by being dead to sin (freed from the law), we can easily see through this most incredible statement, with the clarity of the Spirit of Truth. Paul says that if we believe we are dead with Christ, we can believe we are also alive with Him. If we are dead to the law of Yahweh, we are not alive with Yahshua, because Yahshua said:
Matthew 24:35 heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.
Yahshua also said:
Matthew 5:17-19 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
Paul said, "Christ, being raised from the dead, dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him." I have news for Paul: Death NEVER had dominion over Yahshua; the Word, which is Spirit and Life, always was, always will be and is everlasting.
Paul said, "For in that he died, he died unto sin once, but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God." First of all, did Christ really die to sin? No. If He died to sin, that would mean Yahshua was a sinner. He was Perfect. He never sinned; not in any way, and not once. He died to sin, Paul? You wish he died to the law you claim is bondage. You only wish. Yahshua laid His own body down as the ultimate, perfect, sacrificial Lamb for all who would LIVE IN HIM. How can someone who was (IS) Yahweh's Word made flesh, die and then "live unto Yahweh?" The Word never dies. It is everlasting. His body was given to us as a sacrifice for our sins against that Word that Lives forever. Get it straight oh Paul.
Paul said, "Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord." If we reckon ourselves dead to sin, according to Paul's definition of sin: Yahweh's law, then we have sold our souls to the devil himself, for a lie that will lead us nowhere BUT to death. We are alive, not because we died with Christ, thus died to sin, but because the Word of Yahweh IS the truth and is no lie. We are alive IN Yahshua when we repent of despising His Word and preferring to enter the kingdom of Heaven, some other way.
Yahshua Said, " Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." (John 14:6). Who is HE? He is the Word of Yahweh.
Revelation 19:13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.
If we die to sin, as Paul defines sin, we die to Yahweh. If we are alive In Yahshua, we are alive IN Yahweh. Only by the Word of Yahweh, does anyone find life. We don't find life by dying to the law. We are made alive by believing and living within the Word/Law of Yahweh, which IS Yahweh. Hallelu'Yah.
Romans 6:12-15 Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof. Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God. For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace. What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid.
Whew. I have to say, this entire chapter is giving me a headache. What can add to what I've already said on this sick train of thought, of Paul's? This is the passage that caused me to have to seek Yahweh for understanding, (which I'm glad I did), because I honestly felt sick inside but didn't know why. This is what Yahweh said: "He is saying my law is bondage."
Sin (meaning the law of Yahweh), has no dominion over they who are dead to the law, thus to sin, according to Paul. Yahweh says, it's the exact opposite. We are dead without the Word of Yahweh. That's His final word on this subject.
Romans 6:16-19 Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness? But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you. Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness. I speak after the manner of men because of the infirmity of your flesh: for as ye have yielded your members servants to uncleanness and to iniquity unto iniquity; even so now yield your members servants to righteousness unto holiness.
Paul speaks pure evil, by twisting the truth to sound like it's Yahweh's truth, when it is nothing but a lie. In essence, what Paul is saying, is if we yeild ourselves to the law of Yahweh, to obey it, we become Yahweh's servant; eg., the servants of sin. He says, "Thank God you now don't obey the law! Now you are free to obey ME and MY doctrine that I delivered to you." Paul says, "Now you can be obedient to me and get into heaven without having to go through that IDIOTIC, NASTY, VILE, DISGUSTING LAW THAT JUST MAKES YOU ALL SLAVES TO YAHWEH instead of to me. Since His Word is nothing but bondage- (after all that's why God gave His Word- so you could all be captives to sin), I have SAVED YOU!"
In the Name of Yahshua, I hope you understand this, Amein. Paul has made void the law of Yahweh, in order to make everyone bow to his false doctrines, which He attributes to Yahweh. He has done this, in order to found the Dragon's Synagogue on the earth and bring all people into captivity to the Dragon. If we are free from the Word/Law of Yahweh, then we are open to this false "Christ" and thus will do the will of Satan, though we think we are serving Yahweh. This is the truth. May Yahweh, Almighty, HOLY and Righteous, open your eyes to see and your ears to hear, that this is HIS judgement on the children of disobedience, and this is the fate of all who will not hear what His Spirit is saying to the whole world: (Please study Isaiah 66)
Isaiah 66:15 For, behold, the LORD will come with fire, and with his chariots like a whirlwind, to render his anger with fury, and his rebuke with flames of fire.
Isaiah 66:16 For by fire and by his sword will the LORD plead with all flesh: and the slain of the LORD shall be many.
Isaiah 66:17-18 They that sanctify themselves, and purify themselves in the gardens behind one tree in the midst, eating swine's flesh, and the abomination, and the mouse, shall be consumed together, saith the LORD. For I know their works and their thoughts: it shall come, that I will gather all nations and tongues; and they shall come, and see my glory.
Isaiah 66:24 And they shall go forth, and look upon the carcases of the men that have transgressed against me: for their worm shall not die, neither shall their fire be quenched; and they shall be an abhorring unto all flesh.
Who is Yahshua but the Word of Yahweh? Who is therefore speaking in the following Psalm?
Psalms 118:6-12 The LORD is on my side; I will not fear: what can man do unto me? The LORD taketh my part with them that help me: therefore shall I see my desire upon them that hate me. It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man. It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in princes. all nations compassed me about: but in the name of the LORD will I destroy them. They compassed me about; yea, they compassed me about: but in the name of the LORD I will destroy them. They compassed me about like bees: they are quenched as the fire of thorns: for in the name of the LORD I will destroy them.
The Harlot compasses around Him, gathers in His Name, but hates Him. Hear Him because He is going to destroy all the nations that compass around Him, in His Name, and lead them to their end; all who take His Name in vain, making the Goodness of His Word/Law, out to be something abhorrant and terrible. He will destroy them who gather against Him, though they gather in His Name. Be aware. Amein.
I John 2:28 And now, little children, abide in him; that, when he shall appear, we may have confidence, and not be ashamed before him at his coming.
Look at this following prophecy:
Revelation 19:13-21 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS. And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God; That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great. And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army. And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone. And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.
Do not die with Paul. Live IN Yahshua.
Romans 6:19-21 I speak after the manner of men because of the infirmity of your flesh: for as ye have yielded your members servants to uncleanness and to iniquity unto iniquity; even so now yield your members servants to righteousness unto holiness. For when ye were the servants of sin, ye were free from righteousness. What fruit had ye then in those things whereof ye are now ashamed? for the end of those things is death.
Again, Paul has perverted the Word of Truth, to cause all to abhor the law of Yahweh, by calling it iniquity. He instructs all, to yield themselves to righteousness (by his doctrine) instead of being servants of Yahweh's Law, which Paul calls sin. He says, when you were servants of sin (Yahweh's Word), you were free from righteousness, and that because you have served sin, you are now ashamed. Whoever serves sin, will die- meaning whoever serves Yahweh, through His law and Word, which is His Spirit, will die. Blasphemy. Utter blasphemy.
Romans 6:22-23 But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life. For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Paul is really saying, "Now that you have been freed from the law, which is sin, you have become servants of Satan, who is the real way to holiness and everlasting life. After all, Yahweh's law is death but the gift of Satan is eternal life through ME- because I am your saviour."
Yahshua Said, of Paul and of all people who won't adhere to Him and to His Word:
John 8:44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
Job also prohesied of Paul:
Job 24:14 The murderer rising with the light killeth the poor and needy, and in the night is as a thief.
I've had more than enough of this chapter, so I'll leave you with some things to contemplate. Why does Paul appeal to the masses? Why does he appeal to the masses, even more than Yahshua ever did? What did Yahshua mean by this following statement?
Mark 12:27 He is not the God of the dead, but the God of the living: ye therefore do greatly err.
