Romans 5 is God’s masterpiece, presenting an iron clad case assuring us that we are saved forever.
"Q.E.D." is an abbreviation for the Latin phrase "quod erat demonstrandum" ("that which was to be demonstrated”),
a notation which is often placed at the end of a mathematical proof to indicate its completion.
21 so that, as sin reigned in death, even so grace would reign through righteousness to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Verses 1-11 present a full expression of God’s love for us who have been justified by faith in Christ.
Peace with God, a standing in God’s limitless grace, the sure hope of coming glory,
Present perseverance, tested approval, God’s love, the Holy Spirit.
The love of God that holds you securely forever is the same love that God has for His Son!
Verses 12-21 present the two representative Men, Adam and Christ. The Federal heads of the two human species.
As absolutely certain it is that sin and death and condemnation come to all who are born in Adam…
It is even more absolutely certain that righteousness and indestructible life..
…come permanently and more boutifully to all who are born again into Christ.
It is the act of the representative, and not of the one represented, that brought the result to pass.
The Federal headship of Adam, and the Federal headship of Christ.
