Romans Chapter 5

Romans 5:1 Therefore being justified by faith (trust), we have peace with G-d through our L-rd Yeshua HaMashiach:

Peace with G-d comes through Yeshua. The angels declared this at His birth. They said to the shepherds "peace on earth and good will to man." Yeshua who is our "peace" arrived on the earth.

Romans 5:2-5 By whom also we have access by faith (trust) into this grace (mercy) wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of G-d. And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation works patience; And patience, experience; and experience, hope: And hope makes us not ashamed; because the love of G-d is shed abroad in our hearts by Ruach HaKodesh (the Holy Spirit) which is given to us.

The above verses have helped me many times when going through various trials. If you follow G-d sometimes you will have trouble. He never said it would be easy; however, He did promise that He would never leave you nor forsake you.

Romans 5:6-10 For when we were yet without strength, in due time Messiah (Christ) died for the ungodly. For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die. But G-d commends His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Messiah (Christ) died for us. Much more then, being now justified by His blood, we will be saved from wrath through Him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to G-d by the death of His Son, much more, being reconciled, we will be saved by His life.

Not one of us were deserving of His mercy (grace) when it comes to our standing regarding works. HaShem didn't look at the negative state we were in. He looked at our potential, what He could turn us into. G-d always turns what seems impossible into the possible. Should we not do the same when we look at others. Look for the possibilities of what G-d can do in their lives. G-d loves unconditionally regardless of our condition. The sick are the ones that are in need of a physician. Some are sicker than others but He choose to die for them anyway. (Thank G-d that while we were yet sinners, Mashiach died for us.)

Romans 5:11 and not only so, but we also joy in G-d through our L-rd Yeshua HaMashiach, by whom we have now received the atonement.

We are at peace with G-d only when we have accepted His Son whom He sent. His wrath is satisfied because G-d sees us through the atoning blood of the sacrifice (Yeshua) and we are saved. There is total reconciliation through the love of G-d. This reminds me of the prodigal son who was accepted back through the love of the Father. He was reconciled to the father and their relationship was restored. The Father wants his children to return to him. All the prodigal son has to do is admit that he has done wrong.

Say to G-d:

I am a sinner and believe you sent your Son to atone for my sin. I accept Yeshua as my Messiah and trust that His blood paid for my sin. I give my life to you.

This is all that is required. All your sins are covered, past, present, and future.


Romans 5:12-21 Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned: (For until the law (instruction) sin was in the world: but sin is not imputed when there is no law. Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam's transgression, who is the figure of him that was to come. But not as the offence, so also is the free gift. For if through the offence of one many be dead, much more the grace/mercy of G-d, and the gift by mercy/grace, which is by one man, Yeshua HaMashiach, has abounded to many. And not as it was by one that sinned, so is the gift: for the judgment was by one to condemnation, but the free gift is of many offences unto justification. For if by one man's offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, YEshua Messiah.) Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life. For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one many will be made righteous. Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound. But where sin abounded, mercy/grace did much more abound: That as sin has reigned unto death, even so might mercy/grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Yeshua HaMashiach our L-rd.

Contrast between Adam and Yeshua. (Yeshua is referred to as the 2nd Adam.)

Adam Yeshua
Sin entered mercy (grace) entered
Death life
Condemnation justification
Trespass righteousness
Disobedience obedience
Sinners (declared) righteous
