Romans Romans 111-Pauls Great Desire to
Impart a Spiritual Blessing to Strengthen Faith
of Roman Believers Tape 16
3
Please turn in your Bibles to Romans 11.
4
This evening we will continue with our study of
the book of Romans.
5
By way of review, we have noted thus following
thus far
6
Romans 11-7 contains the salutation in the book
of Romans, which identifies the writer as Paul
(verse 1) and the recipients of the letter as
being believers in Rome (verses 6 and 7) and the
subject as being Jesus Christ (verse 12-5).
7
In Romans 18, we read where Paul relates to the
believers in Rome that he makes it a habit to
thank the Father for them in prayer because of
their faith, which was well-know throughout the
Roman Empire.
8
Then, in Romans 19-10, Paul also related to the
believers in Rome that he prayed for them and
that he might be able to visit them in the
future.
9
This evening we will study Romans 111, in which
Paul writes to the believers in Rome that his
purpose for wanting to visit them was that it had
been his great desire for some time to impart
some spiritual blessing to them that would
strengthen their faith.
10
Romans 11-7, Paul, a bond-servant of Christ
Jesus, called as an apostle, set apart for the
gospel of God, which He promised beforehand
through His prophets in the holy Scriptures
concerning His Son,
11
who was born of a descendant of David according
to the flesh, who was declared the Son of God
with power by the resurrection from the dead,
according to the Spirit of holiness, Jesus Christ
our Lord,
12
through whom we have received grace and
apostleship to bring about the obedience of faith
among all the Gentiles for His name's sake, among
whom you also are the called of Jesus Christ
13
to all who are beloved of God in Rome, called as
saints Grace to you and peace from God our
Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
14
Romans 18, First, I thank my God through Jesus
Christ for you all, because your faith is being
proclaimed throughout the whole world.
15
Romans 19-10, For God, whom I serve in my
spirit in the preaching of the gospel of His Son,
is my witness as to how unceasingly I make
mention of you, always in my prayers making
request, if perhaps now at last by the will of
God I may succeed in coming to you.
16
Romans 111-12, For I long to see you so that I
may impart some spiritual gift to you, that you
may be established, that is, that I may be
encouraged together with you while among you,
each of us by the other's faith, both yours and
mine.
17
For is the post-positive conjunction gar
(gavr), which adduces (i.e., brings forward an
argument as evidence) the reason why Paul prays
to the Father that he might be able to visit the
believers in Rome in the future.
18
I long is the 1st person singular present
active indicative form of the verb epipotheo
(e)pipoqevw), which means, to earnestly desire
to visit the believers in Rome.
19
In Romans 111, the verb epipotheo means that
Paul earnestly desired to see the believers in
Rome in order that he might minister to them.
20
This is a retroactive progressive present tense
denoting that which began in the past and
continues up to the present moment indicating
that Paul had earnestly desired to see the
believers in Rome in the past and that desire
continued up to the time of writing that Paul
wrote this epistle.
21
To see you is composed of the aorist active
infinitive form of the verb eidon (ei!don), which
means, to visit and the 2nd person plural
accusative form of the personal pronoun humeis
(u(mei), all of you, which serves as the
plural form of the second person singular pronoun
su (su), you.
22
The verb eidon with the accusative form of the
personal pronoun humeis, all of you means, to
visit.
23
In Romans 111, the verb eidon functions
grammatically as a complementary infinitive
completing the thought of the verb epipotheo, I
long.
24
The aorist tense of the verb is constative
describing Pauls desire to see the believers in
Rome in summary fashion.
25
The constative aorist tense is also durative
in nature emphasizing that for a long period of
time Paul had desired to see the believers in
Rome.
26
That is the conjunction hina (ina), which
expresses Pauls purpose for earnestly desiring
to visit the believers in Rome.
27
Spiritual gift is the noun charisma (xavrisma),
spiritual and the adjective pneumatikos
(pneumatikov), gift.
28
The expression charisma pneumatikon, spiritual
gift does not refer to the spiritual gifts
that Paul spoke of in 1 Corinthians 12 or in
Romans 12 since they were given to the believers
in Rome at the moment of their salvation by God
the Holy Spirit (See 1 Corinthians 12).
29
The Lord Jesus Christ authorizes the Holy Spirit
to distribute to the believer at the moment of
his salvation one spiritual gift according to a
comparison of Ephesians 41-16 and 1 Peter 410.
30
1 Corinthians 127, But to each one is given the
manifestation of the Spirit for the common good.

31
1 Peter 410, As each one has received a special
gift, employ it in serving one another as good
stewards of the manifold grace of God.
32
In Romans 112, Paul expresses his desire that
the faith of the believers in Rome and his faith
would receive encouragement through the
impartation of this spiritual gift.
33
This indicates that the spiritual gift is a
reference to the communication of the Word of God
in the form of some spiritual insight that Paul
received from the Holy Spirit since in Romans
1017 Paul teaches that faith comes by hearing
the Word of Christ.
34
Romans 1017, So faith comes from hearing, and
hearing by the word of Christ.
35
The faith of the believers in Rome would be
strengthened and in turn they would be encouraged
by Paul communicating the Word of God to them.
36
This would fulfill the purpose for which the Lord
Jesus Christ gave him the spiritual gift of
apostleship, which he writes in Romans 15, was
to bring about faith among the Gentiles, which
produces obedience to God.
37
Therefore, Pauls purpose for wanting to visit
the believers in Rome was to exercise his
spiritual gift on behalf of them.
38
The expression spiritual gift in Romans 111
can be translated spiritual blessing.
39
This translation is supported by Pauls statement
in Romans 1529, I know that when I come to you,
I will come in the fullness of the blessing of
Christ.
40
To be blessed means, to be endued with power
to fulfill a particular purpose.
41
The Christian is blessed in the sense that he is
endued with power by hearing the Word of God,
which is alive and powerful according to Hebrews
412.
42
Hebrews 412, The Word of God is alive and
powerful, sharper than any two-edged sword,
piercing even to the dividing asunder of the soul
and the spirit, and of the joints and the marrow,
and is a critic of thoughts and intents of the
heart.
43
The Word of God enables the believer to grow in
respect to his salvation. 1 Peter 22, like
newborn babies, long for the pure milk of the
word, so that by it you may grow in respect to
salvation.
44
The believer is sanctified by the Word of
God. John 1717, Sanctify them in the truth
Your word is truth.
45
In Ephesians 411-16, the apostle Paul writes
concerning the purpose of the four communication
gifts and teaches that they are designed to
communicate the Word of God, which produces
spiritual growth.
46
Ephesians 411, And He gave some as apostles,
and some as prophets, and some as evangelists,
and some as pastors and teachers.
47
Apostles refers to the temporary spiritual gift
of apostleship that held maximum authority in the
church and was given to only 12 men and existed
exclusively during the pre-canon period of the
church age and is no longer existent today since
all 12 men have died and went home to be with the
Lord.
48
Prophets is a reference to the temporary
spiritual gift of a prophet, which is also no
longer existent since it existed during the
pre-canon period of the church to fill the void
until the New Testament canon had been completed.
49
Evangelists is a reference to the permanent
spiritual gift of an evangelist, which is a gift
that was given exclusively to evangelize the
unbeliever.
50
Pastor and teachers does not refer to two
different spiritual gifts but rather to one gift
since the expression contains the figure of
hendiadys and the Granville Sharpe rules applies
to this expression.
51
Pastor is the noun poimen (poimhvn), which
emphasizes the pastors responsibility and
authority given to him by the Lord to communicate
the Word of God to the body of Christ who have
been assigned to him by the Lord, and the
exercise of this responsibility and authority
protects and nourishes the flock.
52
Teacher is the noun didaskalos (didavskalo),
which emphasizes the pastors responsibility to
systematically impart his technical knowledge of
the Word of God to his congregation on a regular
or sustained basis (Eph. 411 1 Tim. 27 2 Tim.
111 James 31).
53
The pastor-teacher is a male church age believer
who at the moment of salvation and by divine
appointment has been given the spiritual gift and
responsibility and authority to communicate the
Word of God to his fellow believer priests in the
royal family of God who have been assigned to him
by God.
54
The Holy Spirit inspired the Scriptures. 2 Peter
120-21, But know this first of all, that no
prophecy of Scripture is a matter of one's own
interpretation, for no prophecy was ever made by
an act of human will, but men moved by the Holy
Spirit spoke from God.
55
Therefore, the Scriptures are God-breathed. 2
Timothy 316-17, All Scripture is God-breathed
and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for
correction, for training in righteousness so that
the man of God may be adequate, equipped for
every good work.
56
The Holy Spirit reveals the Fathers will,
character, and provisions to the believer through
the communication of the Word of God by the man
with the spiritual gift of pastor-teacher.
57
This is why John says in Revelation chapters two
and three he who has an ear, let him hear what
the Spirit says to the churches (See Revelation
27, 11, 17, 29 36, 13, 22).
58
Ephesians 412, for the equipping of the saints
for the work of service, to the building up of
the body of Christ.
59
For the equipping of the saints refers to
training members of the body of Christ to operate
in their spiritual gift by communicating the Word
of God to them in a face-to-face manner.
60
This prepositional phrase indicates that the
believer is to receive his training in the Word
of God from the pastor-teacher in a face-to-face
manner since for is the preposition pros, face
to face thus, implying that believers must
gather together with other believers to hear the
Word of God.
61
God keeps a book of remembrance of those who
gather together to hear His Word.
62
Malachi 316, Then those who feared the LORD
spoke to one another, and the LORD gave attention
and heard it, and a book of remembrance was
written before Him for those who respect the LORD
and who esteem His name.
63
The early church made it their top priority to
gather together to hear the apostles teach the
doctrines of Christ.
64
Acts 242, They were continually devoting
themselves to the apostles' teaching and to
fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to
prayer.
65
Believers are commanded not to forsake the
assembling of themselves with other believers.
66
Hebrews 1023-25, Let us hold fast the
confession of our hope without wavering, for He
who promised is faithful and let us consider how
to stimulate one another to love and good deeds,
not forsaking our own assembling together, as is
the habit of some, but encouraging one another
and all the more as you see the day drawing
near.
67
For the work of service refers to the fact that
the function of the spiritual gift of
pastor-teacher provides the believer the capacity
to perform Christian service, which produces
divine good of intrinsic value that will be
rewarded at the Bema Seat Evaluation of the
believer that will be conducted by the Lord
Jesus.
68
The communication of Bible Doctrine trains and
prepares the believer for Christian service,
which produces divine good.
69
The believer has been set apart to serve God by
God the Holy Spirit at the moment of salvation in
order to produce divine good of intrinsic value
(Eph. 210).
70
To the building up of the body of Christ refers
to the spiritual growth of the body of Christ (1
Cor. 39 1 Pet. 25).
71
There is a progression with these three
prepositional phrases.
72
The Lord Jesus Christ provided the body of Christ
with the spiritual gift of pastor-teacher in
order to train in a face to face manner each
individual member of the body of Christ, which in
turn enables the believer to perform Christian
service resulting in the spiritual growth of the
body of Christ (1 Cor. 39 1 Pet. 25).
73
These four great communication gifts listed in
Ephesians 411 were given so that the believer
can grow up spiritually and become like Christ,
which is clearly indicated in Ephesians 413-16.
74
Ephesians 413, until we all attain to the unity
of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of
God, to a mature man, to the measure of the
stature which belongs to the fullness of Christ.

75
Knowledge of the Son of God refers to attaining
an experiential knowledge of the Son of God in
the sense of personally encountering Him through
the process of fellowship and being affected by
this encounter with Him resulting in the gaining
of practical spiritual wisdom and more of the
character of Christ.
76
To a mature man refers to attaining spiritual
maturity, which is maximum production of
Christ-like character in the believer and is
accomplished by the believer spending the
majority of his time in fellowship with God,
which enables the Holy Spirit to conform him into
the image of Christ.
77
To the measure of the stature, which belongs to
the fullness of Christ emphasizes that the
standard for spiritual maturity that we are to
strive to attain is the perfection of Christ.
78
Ephesians 414, As a result, we are no longer to
be children, tossed here and there by waves and
carried about by every wind of doctrine, by the
trickery of men, by craftiness in deceitful
scheming.
79
Ephesians 414 teaches that the spiritual gift of
pastor-teacher was given to the church so that
the church might have stability and be protected
from the lies promoted by the false teachers in
Satans cosmic system.
80
Ephesians 415, but speaking the truth in love,
we are to grow up in all aspects into Him who is
the head, even Christ.
81
Ephesians 415 teaches that we are to grow up to
become like Christ in all aspects of our lives
meaning in thought, word and action and we are to
accomplish this by operating in love.
82
Ephesians 416, from whom the whole body, being
fitted and held together by what every joint
supplies, according to the proper working of each
individual part, causes the growth of the body
for the building up of itself in love.
83
Joint is the noun haphe, which is used
figuratively for men with the spiritual gift of
pastor-teacher who are to abundantly supply the
individual members of His Body with the Word of
God.
84
The ultimate purpose of the four great
communication gifts is so that the Holy Spirit
can develop Christ-like character in believers.
85
The Holy Spirit produces the character of Christ
in the believer who obeys the Fathers will,
which is revealed by the Holy Spirit through the
communication of the Word of God.
86
Galatians 522-23, But the fruit of the Spirit
is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness,
goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control
against such things there is no law.
87
The phrase from whom the whole body, being
fitted and held together by what every joint
supplies, according to the proper working of each
individual part indicates that the proper
function and unity of the body of Christ is
directly related to the teaching of the Word of
God, which the pastor is to abundantly supply.
88
The phrase causes the growth of the body for the
building up of itself in love means that the
spiritual growth of the body of Christ is the
direct result of obeying the Lords command to
love one another and indicates that spiritual
growth is directly related to the teaching of the
Word of God, which the pastor is to abundantly
supply.
89
Romans 111, For I long to see you so that I may
impart some spiritual gift to you, that you may
be established.
90
Established is the verb sterizo (sthrivzw),
which means, to cause someone to become stronger
in the sense of more firm and unchanging in
attitude or belief.
91
Therefore, in Romans 111, the verb sterizo means
that Paul desired to communicate the Word of God
to the believers in Rome in order to cause them
to become stronger in their faith and more firm
and stabilized in their attitude and relationship
with God.
92
Consequently, this would produce greater
obedience and consequently, greater spiritual
growth.
93
In fact, in Romans 1625-27, Paul writes to the
believers in Rome that God the Father would
establish (sterizo) them according to the
communication of his gospel and the proclaiming
of Jesus Christ and the mystery doctrine of the
church age.
94
Romans 1625-27, Now to Him who is able to
establish you according to my gospel and the
preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the
revelation of the mystery which has been kept
secret for long ages past,
95
but now is manifested, and by the Scriptures of
the prophets, according to the commandment of the
eternal God, has been made known to all the
nations, leading to obedience of faith, to the
only wise God, through Jesus Christ, be the glory
forever. Amen.
