THE EIGHT-FOLD WITNESS TO RESURRECTION TRUTH IN ROMANS EIGHT:

Why ignored or unrecognized in many pulpits?

Note: The words and word order used below are taken from the Greek test, hence differ somewhat from certain English versions eg KJV.

Rom.8:11 ” He (God) that raised Christ Jesus from (among) the dead( Gk. ek nekron) will also quicken your mortal bodies by His Spirit ( Gk. pneuma= breath, wind) that indwells you.”

Rom.817 ” We suffer with him (Christ) in order that we may also be glorified with him”

Rom. 8:18 “The sufferings of the present time are not worth comparing with the coming glory to be revealed to us.”

Rom.8:19″ All creation (i.e. as if personified) eagerly awaits the revelation of the sons of God ( i.e. on resurrection day).”

Rom. 8:21″Even the creation itself will be freed from the bondage of corruption to the freedom of the glory of the children of God.” Cp. 1Cor.15:52-54, Rev.21:1-5.

Rom.8:23″We ourselves, having the firstfruit of God’s Spirit (Gk. pneuma= breath, wind), groan within ourselves earnestly awaiting the adoption, the redemption of our body (i.e. of all the saints, which are the “body” of Christ, Col. 1:18).”

Rom.8:24-25″ We are saved by hope (Gk. elpis= perfect confidence)…therefore we eagerly wait for it with patience.”

Rom.8:38-39 “Neither death, nor life, nor angels, principalities, powers, things present, things to come, height, depth, nor any other creature , shall be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
