This is why I love looking at Bible verses in the original language….
So then each of us concerning himself must give an account to God.
~ Romans 14:12 KJV
Greek doesn’t officially say TO God it says THE God (Elohim – Godhead) — some ancient manuscripts don’t have “to God” in this verse.
Let’s tweak this verse a bit to be more Christ centered…..So then, each of us concerning himself must give the Elohim (God) account!
I love that – the God account!!
Account is logos which is lego which means the expressed thoughts of the Father; Jesus is the Logos; In Hebrew it is davar which means to speak things into order;
Concerning is peri which means all around; encompassing every side; covering all the basis;
and give also means to utter, to yield, to receive;
So — Robin’s paraphrase: We will say, we will yield to, we will receive, and we will allow concerning everything about us, concerning every area of our lives what the Father has spoken regarding us in Christ..… the Elohim account!!
What is the Elohim account of your life? Who are you IN CHRIST?
Healed, prosperous, righteous, holy, perfect, complete, victorious, etc…… The Elohim Account!!
We’re not giving an account TO God…. we’re allowing His account of us to be how we see ourselves and others!
Romans 4:12 in The Mirror Bible: Thus the logic of God will find its personal expression in every person.
