VIII. MAIN BODY:

Romans 10:7 (Amplified Bible)

Or who will descend into the abyss? that is, to bring Christ up from the dead [as if we could be saved by our own efforts].

Romans 10:7 (New King James Version)

or, " 'Who will descend into the abyss?' " (that is, to bring Christ up from the dead).

A. Who will descend into the abyss to bring CHRIST up from the dead?

"Or who will descend into the abyss? that is, to bring Christ up from the dead"

No creation of GOD can do this, even angels. What Apostle Paul is saying is that he wanted to confirm the mystery of salvation by faith to all humans, up to the extreme of Heaven and Hell. Salvation is not of works but by of faith. Simply presenting the gospel in it's purest form makes plain who is bound to go to heaven and bound to go to hell.

1 Corinthians 1:18 (Amplified Bible)

For the story and message of the cross is sheer absurdity and folly to those who are perishing and on their way to perdition, but to us who are being saved it is the [manifestation of] the power of God.

It is made more simpler by the gospel actually, to those who will believe the LORD JESUS CHRIST of the gospel, the Center of the gospel, will go to heaven, and if you don't then you go to hell. It's as simple as that. Either black or white, but this wicked, perverted generation has made it more difficult for people to decide. Either you're male or female, but they made it, difficult, now you like a male, but you're a female. Disgusting, perverts, they made GOD's creation an abomination in GOD'S sight. It's either holy or evil, please stay within the vicinity of GOD'S love and creation for you to understand this. It's either heaven or hell, saved or not saved, believer or unbeliever, that's about it. It's that plain and simple.

B. As if we could be saved by our own efforts.

"[as if we could be saved by our own efforts]"

Romans 4:25 (Amplified Bible)

Who was betrayed and put to death because of our misdeeds and was raised to secure our justification (our acquittal), [making our account balance and absolving us from all guilt before God].

Hebrews 13:20 (Amplified Bible)

Now may the God of peace [Who is the Author and the Giver of peace], Who brought again from among the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep, by the blood [that sealed, ratified] the everlasting agreement (covenant, testament),

1 Peter 3:18 (Amplified Bible)

For Christ [the Messiah Himself] died for sins once for all, the Righteous for the unrighteous (the Just for the unjust, the Innocent for the guilty), that He might bring us to God. In His human body He was put to death, but He was made alive in the spirit,

1 Peter 3:22 (Amplified Bible)

[And He] has now entered into heaven and is at the right hand of God, with [all] angels and authorities and powers made subservient to Him.

Revelation 1:18 (Amplified Bible)

And the Ever-living One [I am living in the eternity of the eternities]. I died, but see, I am alive forevermore; and I possess the keys of death and Hades (the realm of the dead).

No creature efforts can save us, only by the blood and body of JESUS, we can be saved from hell and second death.

Titus 3:5 (Amplified Bible)

He saved us, not because of any works of righteousness that we had done, but because of His own pity and mercy, by [the] cleansing [bath] of the new birth (regeneration) and renewing of the Holy Spirit,
