ROMANS 2 WHO SHALL ESCAPE ?
« on: February 06, 2020, 11:32:17 am »
The wrath of God has been revealed against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men in Romans 1:18.

In Romans 2 the wrath of God is focused on Israel as can be seen from verse 17.

Romans 2:5 But after thy hardness and impenitent heart treasurest up unto thyself wrath against the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God;

2:6 Who will render to every man according to his deeds:

Israel will be judged by their deeds to determine entrance into the kingdom on earth (Psalm 62:12 Isaiah 3:10-11 Ezekiel 18:30 Matthew 16:25-28 Matthew 5:20).

2:7 To them who by patient continuance in well doing seek for glory and honour and immortality, eternal life:

Israel was to be patient and endure to the end in order to enter into the Davidic kingdom on earth (Luke 21:19 Matthew 24:13 Matthew 3:2 Exodus 19:5-6 Isaiah 2:1-3 Jeremiah 23:5).

This verse is not for this dispensation; we are not justified unto eternal life by doing good, as there is none righteous (Romans 3:10). We are justified freely by the redemption that is in Christ Jesus (Romans 3:24).

2:8 But unto them that are contentious, and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, indignation and wrath,

2:9 Tribulation and anguish, upon every soul of man that doeth evil, of the Jew first, and also of the Gentile;

The unbelieving, wicked Jew will be first to face wrath.

2:10 But glory, honour, and peace, to every man that worketh good, to the Jew first, and also to the Gentile:

2:11 For there is no respect of persons with God.

The Gentiles were to be blessed by Israel in the kingdom on earth (Isaiah 60:3 Genesis 12:2-3 Micah 4:2 Matthew 28:19 Zechariah 8:22-23). Gentiles could also be blessed through Israel (Luke 7:9) and by believing the preaching of the gospel of the kingdom (Acts 13:48). God is no respecter of persons, Gentiles would enter the kingdom as well if they continued in belief (Matthew 25:34-46 Romans 11:20-21).

2:12 For as many as have sinned without law shall also perish without law: and as many as have sinned in the law shall be judged by the law;

Israel would not escape wrath by simply being Israel and having the law.

2:17 Behold, thou art called a Jew, and restest in the law, and makest thy boast of God,

This verse upholds the contention that Romans 2 is directed to Israel and to refute the belief that by being Israel they would escape judgment and wrath.

2:24 For the name of God is blasphemed among the Gentiles through you, as it is written.

The name of God being blasphemed as it is written in 2 Samuel 12:14. Israel by breaking the law blasphemed the name of God.

2:28 For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh:

2:29 But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God.

Romans 2 is directed to Israel, to correct the notion that by being a Jew they would escape wrath and the verses above demonstrate this. The true Jew is not a Jew by the flesh, by being born an Israelite and circumcised, but is a Jew by faith.

Awesome
Hearing, believing and trusting the finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross; His death, burial and resurrection for the forgiveness of sins and REPENTING, seals us with that Holy Spirit of Promise - EPHESIANS 1:10-14 KJV - The Lord is not slack concerning His promise. 2 Peter 3:9 KJV - 1 Corinthians 15:1-4 KJV - Ephesians 1:10-14 KJV - Romans 10:9-10 KJV - Romans 10:13 - Romans 10:17 - Ephesians 1:7 KJV - Colossians 1:14 KJV -
