Derek Prince – Bible Teacher

In our last session we entered into the final stage of this pilgrimage before we reach our climax and our goal which is Romans 8.


And we began to study Romans 7 which is the chapter which deals with the relationship of the believer to the law. And I warned you that it would be hard work but we went through just the first 6 verses in which Paul uses an analogy of marriage. And I’ll just review that briefly.

Paul says that when a woman is married to a man, as long as the man remains alive she’s not free to marry another. But if the man dies then she’s free to marry another. And the way he applies this analogy is that through the covenant of the law, Israel were married to their fleshly nature because the law requires us to do things relying on our fleshly nature, our own ability, not looking to the grace of God.

But on the cross, when Jesus died, that fleshly nature was put to death in Him. Because of that death we are now free to marry another. The other whom we marry is the one who rose from the dead, the Lord Jesus. So, we can enter into a new marriage relationship, not married to our carnal nature but married to the resurrected, glorified Lord Jesus. And through that marriage union with Him we are now able to bring forth the fruit of the Holy Spirit.
