Derek Prince – Bible Teacher
In our previous two sessions we’ve been looking at Romans chapter 4 and we’ve been focusing mainly on the example and the pattern of Abraham and his faith. And we’ve seen the conditions that Abraham had to fulfill in order to become the father of a great multitude or a multitude of nations.
And then we’ve seen also the conditions that we have to fulfill in order to qualify to be reckoned as the descendants of Abraham.
Now we’re moving on to Stage Six in this Pilgrimage which is found at the beginning of chapter 5, which I have headed in our outline as 5 Experiential Results Of Being Justified By Faith.
I pointed out earlier that the Gospel is anchored in history and in human experience. It’s not just an abstract set of theories, but it’s tied to history and human experience. It’s tied to history because it’s based and centers in historical facts. That Jesus died, that He was buried, that He rose again the third day. If those facts are not true, the Gospel is not true.
It’s also anchored to human experience because when we believe it and act on it, it produces results in our experience which could not be produced in any other way.
