Romans 5: 18-21

5:18 Then as one man's trespass led to condemnation for all men, so one man's act of righteousness leads to acquittal and life for all men. 19 For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by one man's obedience many will be made righteous. 20 Torah came in, to increase the trespass; but where sin increased, /j grace abounded all the more, 21 so that, as sin reigned in death, /j grace also might reign through righteousness to eternal life through Y’shua HaMashiach our Adown

The zombies are all around you.
Perhaps the apocalypse has not begun, but there are zombies fact you may be one. Consider:

Have you descended from Adam?
If so, then your heritage is death and you are among the walking dead.
Have you come to faith (amen) in Y'shua? Unless you are "born again" death is your heritage. Y'shua's righteous death for you is your only hope of escape from walking death.

Are you a religious person?
Religion is only a door to life, it does not provide life. The Torah (Law) was given to men so that the fall would be clear and undeniable. The details of what is sin shows us that we sin abundantly. We, in fact, are servants to sin, as if sin is our master. Religion is like Pandora's Box. Religion, Torah, reveals and releases every base passion, every nasty sin ever devised. It becomes clear just how horrid and dead our hearts are. There is a desire to slam the lid down on religion as if the Torah was the problem. But like Pandora's Box, there is a voice of hope. Where there is abundance of sin, there is grace (the kindness of YHVH) in even grater abundance.

Do you know who you serve?
Perhaps you are unclear about serving anyone or anything. Then I can assure you that you are a servant of sin and death is your heritage. But if by faith (amen) you have given your life to Y'shua then your life is by the kindness (grace) of YHVH and it is that very kindness that is Adown (lord) of your life. You get to choose. But be aware, your master, sin, will not like it if you choose Life.

Personal study of ROMANS 5: 18-21
