Romans 1:18-23 "For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; 19Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. 20For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: 21Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. 22Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, 23And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.'



to whom is this about? verse 19. Because ....
Because what? What is this because about?

It's about 'why' there is wrath of God from heaven..

So why is there this wrath of God from heaven?
Because...
Because..

Because why?

Because (verse 19) "Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them."

Huh? What do you mean? I mean that the wrath of God is revealed from Heaven BECAUSE God made manifest to them the 'Truths' about Him but 'they', as in 'them' in verse 19, chose to deliberately 'lie' about what He has revealed to 'them'.

So who is this 'them'?

verse 18.. "For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;"

this 'them' is .... the 'men' it seems....

this 'men' who hold the truth, Whom God has made manifest to 'them' in unrighteousness and ungodliness that they, 'the men' would lie to all listeners to the reality of the Goodness of God rather than the harshness of God since God revealed, made manifest the Truth about Himself to 'them' but 'they' still 'lie' to every listener about the 'truth' God gave/made manifest. In other words, 'they' betrayed His trust.. They were supposed to have been as shining lamps, like shining beacons, like 'watchtowers' of Truth, but they have deliberately lied to what they were 'given' by Holy God. And so these persons, these 'men' share their own 'lies' rather than His Truths.

This is why 'they' are inexcusable as in chapter 2; Romans.

But who are these 'men'?

Men.. Man and woman.. not sex based as in male or female in the Greek word anthropos, but as in 'mankind'.. both male and female... So to those 'persons' to whom God truly made 'manifest' of His True character somehow, exclusively, blessedly, prestigiously, etc.. maybe because 'they' asked in prayer (?) (who knows?) and to those 'persons' deliberate 'twisting' of The Truth into lies and to spread the 'lies' rather than the Truth, is why God's wrath is revealed from heaven..

Who Is the Only Wise? Who is the Only Potentate? Who is the Only, 'I Am'?


Who Is this One ?? God, please be with us all and help us and turn our fooishness away from these ways so that we may see and live and worship and praise in the freedom and Goodness of Truth as to why the sun is set up and as to why the day is made unto rejoicing and being glad in it. In Thy Holy Messiah's Name and In The Name of The Heavenly King, I also ask Thee, Holy God, in Thy Holy Name. Amen and Amen.
