Romans 6:09 - Knowing for Sure Bookmark

In this amazing chapter there is three kinds of "knowing," a "reckoning," and a "presenting." Their importance to the success of our Christian lives cannot be overstated.  If the lesson here is NOT learned (as taught by the Holy Spirit Himself upon our hearts) then chapter 7, 9 and 12 become a bridge too far, or worse, pie in the sky in the sweet bye and bye.  Or to paraphrase Watchmen Nee, you can reckon yourself dead unto sin until hell freezes over without success until you understand the knowing.
The first in verse 3 is the "not knowing" or ignorance.
The second in verse 6 is to know with certainty through intimacy.
The third in verse 9 is to know experientially through the senses.
Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more - So we, believing in Christ Jesus, and having a death unto sin, and a life unto righteousness, should sin no more.  If we be risen indeed with Christ, we should seek the things above, and set our affections on things above, and not on the earth.  The man who walks in humble, loving obedience, to an indwelling Christ, sin has no more dominion over his soul than death has over the immortal and glorified body of his Redeemer. (Dr. Adam Clarke)
knowing that Christ, having been raised from the dead, is never to die again; death no longer is master over Him. (NASB)
Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him. (KJV)
We are sure of this because Christ was raised from the dead, and He will never die again. Death no longer has any power over Him. (NLT)
We know that since Christ has been raised from the dead, he is never going to die again; death no longer has mastery over him. (NET)
Rev 1:18 I am the living One. I died, but look—I am alive forever and ever! And I hold the keys of death and the grave. (NLT)
Heb 10:12 But our High Priest offered Himself to God as a single sacrifice for sins, good for all time. Then He sat down in the place of honor at God's right hand. (NLT)
Act 2:24 But God released Him from the horrors of death and raised Him back to life, for death could not keep Him in its grip. (NLT)
Joh 10:17-18 "The Father loves Me because I sacrifice My life so I may take it back again. No one can take My life from Me. I sacrifice it voluntarily. For I have the authority to lay it down when I want to and also to take it up again. For this is what My Father has commanded." (NLT)

The assurance of salvation is the work of the Holy Spirit in our hearts.  This assurance does not necessarily prevent us from being deceived by the enemy in to doubting.  However, if we confess our doubt and surrender ourselves to the Spirit's leading us in the way everlasting, we will find assurance growing in our hearts.  This is how we "know" "are sure" experientially through our senses.  Thank you Lord Jesus!
