Romans 1:8-9 Paul’s Uses of the Roman Empire


Romans 1:8-9

8 First, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for you all, because your faith is being proclaimed throughout the whole world. 9 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,

Most often people will complain about the government that rules them, & same guess most of the people of Israel & their hatred for the Roman Empire. But the Bible tells us in (Romans 13:1) government authorities are established by God. Scripture speaks how God used Augustus Caesar, to have a census of all the earth, & so then Joseph took Mary to Bethlehem, & just in time to fulfill prophecy, Jesus was born in the city of David.

Romans 13:1 Every person is to be in subjection to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those which exist are established by God.

Luke 2:1 Now in those days a decree went out from Caesar Augustus, that a census be taken of all the inhabited earth.

The emperor Augustus established Rome’s first postal service to communicate with his governors & military officials. Augustus, &  those who succeeded him built about 47,000 miles of roads & many stations , that employees, that help the Roman mail carriers. The apostle Paul ,who was a Roman citizen, took advantage of this Roman Postal Service, he knew of to deliver the gospel letters to the 13 letters to the churches . Dear brothers & sisters, we should always believe God is always in control. Maybe all the roads do lead to Rome, but also delivered the good new. God bless you all, the Lord loves you & so do I. by Sam H. 

2 Thessalonians 3:17 I, Paul, write this greeting with my own hand, and this is a distinguishing mark in every letter; this is the way I write.
