I soooo like the word dioti!!

Dioti is used in the Word of God 22 times (New Testament).

Every time it is in exactly the right place and for the right purpose.

Dioti is a word.

It is a conjunction.


I guess we all need a revelation of dioti(c) proportions!

It's simple ...
A conjunction is a word used to connect and explain two or more clauses or sentences. It may also be used to coordinate words in the same clause (e.g. because, and, but, if). For you to make sense of one part of a statement, you have to read the connecting part too.

Dioti is a conjunction, which really means that it clears up (makes understandable) what had just been said with what is following.

So, what is dioti?

Dioti is a Greek word loosely translated as: but now; on the very account that, or inasmuch as: - because (that), for, therefore (check out the Strong's concordance).

So, let's look at the awesomest (!) way ever that dioti is used in the Word of God. It is found in Romans 3:19-26. Remember we'll have a clause or phrase followed by dioti followed by the clarifying explanation or phrase.

Let's see:

Verse 19: Now we know that what things soever the law saith, it saith to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God.

[Now we know who the law is intended for and why.][... but here comes the first dioti ...]

Verse 20: Therefore [dioti] by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin.

[Wow, the law is the knowledge of sin. It can not stand before God, because cannot remembers your sins!]

[Now check out the dioti that brings it all together][followed by the most beautiful and important phrase EVER]

Verse 21: dioti (But now) the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets;

Verse 22: Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference:

Verse 23: For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

[Hang on. It continues...]

Verse 24: Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:

[Justified how? FREELY!] [By Whom? GRACE - JESUS!]

Verse 25: Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God; 

[Where is sin? It is in the past ... gone, wiped out] [By whose making? GOD!] [Any contribution of ours by following the law? NONE!]

Verse 26: To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus. Rom 3:19-26

[Who is included? Him that believes!]

Oh, HalleluYAH! The Gospel by means of a simple dioti!

We are no more idioti (!).

We are the righteousness of God!
