Romans 7:3-4 “So then if, while her husband liveth, she be married to another man, she shall be called an adulteress: but if her husband be dead, she is free from that law; so that she is no adulteress, though she be married to another man. Wherefore, my brethren, ye also are become dead to the law by the body of Christ; that ye should be married to another, to him who is raised from the dead, that we should bring forth fruit unto God.”
It says her in Romans 7 that by the body of Christ the law is dead, and we are to be married to another. If we are to be married to another, there must be something that we are already married to that must die. And if it doesn’t die, we are considered an “adulterous&...

Romans 5:14 “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.”
Romans 6:5-7 “For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also of resurrection: Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin. For he that is dead is freed from sin.”
To be alive through the tree of knowledge is what God calls death [reigning].But this reign of death through the tree of knowledge is actually the making of a seed (word) that can be planted or buried. And once planted, that seed [that is...

Tying the death spoken of in Romans and Corinthians discussed in the 5/31/14 post to the death spoken of in Genesis 2 and 3 which was discussed in the 6/7/14 post.
Genesis 3:23: “Therefore the LORD God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken.” The word “till” here means to serve or WORK.
Adam was now producing “works” from the ground, rather than living from the garden. He was now living by the LAW OF WORKS.
Matthew 13:22-23 “He also that received seed among the thorns is he that heareth the word; and the care of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becometh unfruitful. But he that received seed into ...

What is the death spoken of here?
Romans 6:7 “For he that is dead is freed from sin.”
1Corinthians 15:36 “Thou fool, that which thou sowest is not quickened except it die:”
What is the difference between physical death and the death spoken of here?
Romans 6:8 “Now if we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him.”
Is it that our first born (carnal mind) dies so our true husband (Christ) can live spiritually within? That which we sow (ourselves) dies from within, so that our butterfly can live.
Romans 12:1 “I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable ...
