Author: The apostle Paul is the writer of the epistle to the Galatians.
Date of Writing: Galatians is likely the first New Testament book to be written, composed sometime between after AD 48-50.
Purpose of Writing: The churches in Galatia were comprised of both Jewish and Gentile converts. Paul’s purpose in writing to these churches was to confirm them in the faith, especially concerning justification by faith alone, apart from the works of the Law of Moses.
Galatians was written because the churches of that region were facing a theological crisis. The essential truth of justification by faith rather than by human works (OF THE LAW OF MOSES) was being denied by the Judaizers—legalistic Jews who insisted that Christians must keep the MOSAIC LAW. This is not speaking to the clear commands throughout the Bible that commands believers to “GO AND SIN NO MORE” (JOHN 5:14) and “IF YOU LOVE ME, KEEP MY COMMANDMENTS” (JOHN 14:15) or “JESUS IS THE AUTHOR OF ETERNAL SALVATION TO ALL THOSE WHO OBEY HIM” (HEBREWS 5:9), etc, etc. In particular, the Judaizers insisted on circumcision as a requirement for Gentiles who wished to be saved. In other words, convert to Judaism first, and then you are eligible to become a Christian. When Paul learned that this heresy was being taught to the Galatian churches, he composed an epistle to emphasize our liberty IN CHRIST and to counter the perversion of the gospel that the Judaizers promoted.
Galatians Chapter 1
Gal 1:1 “Paul, an apostle, (not of men, neither by man, but by Jesus Christ, and God the Father, who raised him from the dead;)
Gal 1:2 And all the brethren which are with me, unto the churches of Galatia:
Gal 1:3 Grace be to you and peace from God the Father, and from our Lord Jesus Christ,
Gal 1:4 Who gave himself for our sins (AS THE PERFECT, UNBLEMISHED, SIN-OFFERING), that he might deliver us from this present evil world (FROM SIN & ALL IT’S WICKEDNESS), according to the will of God and our Father: (THE WILL OF THE FATHER WAS TO SEND JESUS TO REDEEM SINNERS FROM THEIR SIN, NOT IN THEIR SIN)
Gal 1:5 To whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.
No Other Gospel
Gal 1:6 I marvel that ye are so SOON REMOVED (FROM THE TRUE, SAVING FAITH YOU ONCE HAD) from HIM THAT CALLED YOU (ONCE CALLED NOT ALWAYS CALLED) you into the grace of Christ unto ANOTHER GOSPEL: (ANYONE WHO BRINGS A FALSE GOSPEL IS ACCURSED – GALATIANS 1:8-9).
Gal 1:7 Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. (IT’S CALLED THE “GOSPEL” BUT AS IN “99%+” OF THE “CHURCHES” TODAY, THEY PERVERT THE TRUE GOSPEL OF CHRIST AND IT’S SAVING GRACE).
Gal 1:8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, PREACH ANY OTHER GOSPEL unto you than that which we have preached unto you, LET HIM BE ACCURSED.
Gal 1:9 As we said before, so say I now again, IF ANY MAN PREACH ANY OTHER GOSPEL unto you than that ye have received, LET HIM BE ACCURSED. (NOT ONE BUT TWO WARNINGS. IT DOES NOT MATTER IF ONE BRINGS 50%, 0R 75% OR EVEN 95% OF THE GOSPEL CORRECTLY, THE PART THAT IS UNTRUE IS HERESY AND ONE NEEDS TO FLEE FROM SUCH AN ACCURSED “GOSPEL”).
Gal 1:10 For do I now persuade men, or God? or DO I SEEK TO PLEASE MEN? for IF I PLEASED MEN, I SHOULD NOT BE THE SERVANT OF CHRIST. (AGAIN, “99%+” OF THE “CHURCHES” TODAY PREACH, AND THE HEARERS BELIEVE, IN A FALSE, DAMNABLE “GOSPEL” THAT DOES NOT SAVE. MOST OF THE “CHURCHES” TODAY ARE NOTHING BUT CIRCUSES WITH ALL THE ENTERTAINMENT, CAFE’S, LOUD MUSIC, IMMODESTY AND THE LIKE. THEY ARE NOTHING BUT “EAR TICKLING”M LUKEWARM, WIDE ROADS TO HELLFIRE).
Paul Called by God
Gal 1:11 But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached of me IS NOT AFTER MAN.
Gal 1:12 For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ. (TRANSLATED: BY THE REVELATION FROM JESUS CHRIST)
Gal 1:13 For ye have heard of my conversation in time past in the Jews’ religion, how that beyond measure I persecuted the church of God, and wasted it:
Acts 9:1 “And Saul, yet breathing out threatenings and slaughter against the disciples of the Lord, went unto the high priest”
Acts 22:4 And I persecuted this way (CHRISTIANS) UNTO THE DEATH, binding and delivering into prisons both men and women.”
Gal 1:14 And profited in the Jews’ religion above many my equals (IN AGE) in mine own nation, being more exceedingly zealous of the traditions of my fathers.
Gal 1:15 But when it pleased God, who separated me from my mother’s womb, and called me by his grace (on the way to Damascus – Acts 9:1-43.) me by his grace, (OH HOW SO MANY WREST THIS TO THEIR OWN DESTRUCTION. THE APOSTLE HERE IS NOT SPEAKING OF GOD’S DECREE, PREDESTINATING HIM TO ETERNAL LIFE (WHICH IS THE GREAT HERESY OF JOHN CALVIN, LUTHER AND OTHERS), BUT OF HIS DETERMINING HIM TO THE WORK OF AN APOSTLE. IN THE NEW TESTAMENT, THE “CALL OF GOD” ALWAYS MEANS GOD’S INVITATION ACCEPTED. PAUL BECAME A CHRISTIAN IN THE SAME MANNER AS ALL CHRISTIANS DO, BY BELIEVING: REPENTING, CONFESSING ALL SINS, CONFESSING CHRIST AS NOT ONLY SAVIOUR BUT ALSO LORD AND AFTER SALVATION; BEING BAPTIZED SHOULD BE ONE OF THE VERY 1ST ACTS OF OBEDIENCE. I MUST ADD THE FOLLOWING: John 15:5-6 “I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that ABIDETH IN ME, and I in him, the same BRINGETH FORTH MUCH FRUIT: for WITHOUT ME (JESUS) YOU CAN DO NOTHING. 5 IF A MAN ABIDE NOT IN ME, HE IS CAST FORTH AS A BRANCH, and is withered (physical death); and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned (the second death, spiritual death in Hell and the Lake of fire).”
“YE ARE THE…BRANCHES” Not your works, not your future rewards, YE are! “If a man” who is portrayed by the “branches” does not ABIDE, what happens to him? HE is cast forth AS a branch. Since the bible does not classify plants as living or “having life” like many of us do, it does not refer to a plant as dying, rather it uses the words “fade, fade away, or withered” which gives a clear picture of natural death. (James 2:26 Mat. 10:28, Heb. 9:27) Men gather them (BRANCHES) and they are (WHAT ARE “THEY”? BRANCHES) burned.
This, contrary to OSAS deceiving teachers, is not speaking of the world. This was spoken to the Disciples, 11 of them after Judas left to betray him at the last supper. He is warning those disciples to not only remain in Him, but also to teach this to the church(BELIEVERS). He also is not referring here to what Judas did “as an unbeliever” for you cannot have it both ways, either Judas at one time believed and fell away as prophesied or he never knew Jesus and Jesus “never knew Him”. He was known by him and did miracles in Jesus’ name, he preached the gospel, cast out devils, and was so outwardly righteous that the disciples suspected themselves as being the betrayer before they thought of Judas.
Gal 1:16 To reveal his Son in me, that I might preach him among the heathen; immediately I conferred not with flesh and blood:
Gal 1:17 Neither went I up to Jerusalem to them which were apostles before me; but I went into Arabia, and returned again unto Damascus.
Gal 1:18 Then after three years I went up to Jerusalem to see Peter, and abode with him fifteen days.
Gal 1:19 But other of the apostles saw I none, save James the Lord’s brother.
Gal 1:20 Now the things which I write unto you, behold, before God, I lie not.
Gal 1:21 Afterwards I came into the regions of Syria and Cilicia;
Gal 1:22 And was unknown by face unto the churches of Judea which were in Christ:
Gal 1:23 But they had heard only, That he which persecuted us in times past now preacheth the faith which once he destroyed.
Gal 1:24 And they glorified God in me.”
Galatians Chapter 2
Paul Accepted by the Apostles
Gal 2:1 “Then fourteen years after I went up again to Jerusalem with Barnabas, and took Titus with me also.
Gal 2:2 And I went up by revelation, and communicated unto them that gospel which I preach among the Gentiles (NO LONGER NEEDING THE LAW OF MOSES), but privately to them which were of reputation (THE LEADING MEN AMONG THE APOSTLES), lest by any means I should run, or had run, in vain. (PAUL WAS CONCERNED THAT IS HE DID NOT PRIVATELY LAY THE CASE OUT BEFORE THEM, THEY EITHER WOULD NOT UNDERSTAND IT OR MISINTERPRET IT).
Gal 2:3 But neither Titus, who was with me, being a Greek, was compelled to be circumcised: (A REBUKE TO THE JUDIAZERS AS CIRCUMCISION IS NOT NEEDED FOR SALVATION ANY LONGER)
Gal 2:4 And that because of FALSE BRETHREN unawares brought in, who came in privily (STEALTHY) to spy out our liberty (FROM THE YOKE OF THE CEREMONIAL LAW) which we have in Christ Jesus, that they might bring us into bondage: (A LITTLE LEAVEN LEAVENS THE WHOLE LUMP)
Gal 2:5 To whom we gave place by subjection, no, not for an hour; that the truth of the gospel might continue with you. (HE DID NOT SUBMIT AT ALL TO THE JUDIAZING TEACHERS)
Gal 2:6 But of these who seemed to be somewhat, (whatsoever they were, it maketh no matter to me: God accepteth no man’s person:) for they who seemed to be somewhat in conference added nothing to me: (NEITHER AS TO DOCTRINE OR MISSION. THIS PROVES TO THE GALATIANS THE INDEPENDENCE OF THE APOSTLE)
Gal 2:7 But contrariwise, when they saw that the gospel of the uncircumcision was committed unto me, as the gospel of the circumcision was unto Peter; (PETER FIRST OPENED THE DOOR TO THE GENTILES Acts 10:1-48; Acts 15:7 BUT PAUL HAD THE ULTIMATE APPOINTMENT TO PREACH TO THE GENTILES WHILE PETER TO THE JEWS)
Gal 2:8 (For he that wrought effectually in Peter to the apostleship of the circumcision, the same was mighty in me toward the Gentiles:) (THE HOLY SPIRIT WAS ON BOTH OF THEM POWERFULLY PREACHING AND CONVERTING SOULS)
Gal 2:9 And when James, Cephas, and John, who seemed to be pillars (SUPPORTS FOR THE CHURCH), perceived the grace that was given unto me, they gave to me and Barnabas the right hands of fellowship (AS A DEAR BROTHER AND COLLEAGUE); that we should go unto the heathen, and they unto the circumcision. (GREAT FAVOUR WAS GIVEN)
Gal 2:10 Only they would that we should remember the poor (THE THEN DISTRESSED JEWISH CONVERTS TO CHRISTIANITY); the same which I also was forward to do.
Paul Opposes Peter
Gal 2:11 But when Peter was come to Antioch, I withstood him to the face, because he was to be blamed. (THIS DISCREDITS THE ROMAN CATHOLIC HERESY THAT “PETER WAS THE POPE”)
Gal 2:12 For before that certain came from James, he did eat with the Gentiles: but when they were come, he withdrew and separated himself, fearing them which were of the circumcision. (For fear of man, Gal 2:12; for dissimulation, Gal 2:13; and for not walking uprightly. Gal 2:14)
Gal 2:13 And the other Jews dissembled likewise with him (JOINED WITH HYPOCRISY); insomuch that Barnabas also was carried away with their dissimulation. (ONE OF THE LEAST LIKELY TO BE LED IN SUCH ERROR WAS BARNABAS AS HE WAS WITH PAUL IN FIRST PREACHING TO THE GENTILES, ETC)
Gal 2:14 But when I saw that THEY WALKED NOT UPRIGHTLY according to the truth of the gospel (THEY DID NOT “WALK AS JESUS WALKED” AS COMMANDED), I said unto Peter before them all, If thou, being a Jew, livest after the manner of Gentiles, and not as do the Jews, why compellest thou the Gentiles to live as do the Jews? (CHRISTIANS ARE UNDER NO OBLIGATION TO OBSERVE THE MOSAIC LAW (CIRCUMCISION, DIETARY LAWS) AND ALL OTHER CEREMONIES. SURELY THEY ARE TO OBEY THE MORAL LAW OF GOD. THIS WAS A RIGHTEOUS REBUKE TO A BROTHER WHICH IS TRUE LOVE)
Justified by Faith
Gal 2:15 We who are Jews by nature (BY BIRTH), and not sinners of the Gentiles, (MEANING ONE WHO HAD NO KNOWLEDGE OF GOD)
Gal 2:16 Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the (MOSAIC) law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ (A TRUE, LIVING, OBEDIENT FAITH) , even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the FAITH of Christ, and not by the WORKS OF THE (CEREMONIAL) LAW: for by the works of the law (OF MOSES) shall no flesh be justified.
Gal 2:17 But if, while we seek to be justified by Christ (BY LIVING HOLY, SET APART AND OBEDIENT TO LORD JESUS), we ourselves also are found sinners, is therefore Christ the minister of sin? God forbid. (IF ONE EITHER COMES TO CHRIST, BECOMES TRULY BORN-AGAIN YET THEN GOES BACK TO PRACTICING WILLFUL SIN, THEY ARE DRAWN AWAY BY THEIR OWN LUST. YOU MUST LIVE BIBLICALLY PERFECT NOW)
(Titus 2:11-12 “For the GRACE OF GOD that bringeth salvation hath APPEARED TO ALL MEN,12 Teaching us that, DENYING UNGODLINESS and WORLDLY LUSTS (SIN), we should live SOBERLY, RIGHTEOUSLY, and GODLY, IN THIS PRESENT WORLD”James 1:13-16 “Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man: 14 But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away BY HIS OWN LUST, and enticed. 15 Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth SIN: and SIN, when it is finished, bringeth forth DEATH. 16 Do not err (DO NOT SIN), my beloved brethren.”)
Gal 2:18 For if I build again the things which I destroyed (PREACHING THE MOSAIC LAW NECESSARY AFTER PREACHING THE TRUE GOSPEL), I make myself a TRANSGRESSOR. (ANOTHER VERSE THAT DESTROYS THE “ONCE SAVED ALWAYS SAVED” HERESY THAT LEADS SO MANY TO HELL IN BONDAGE TO SIN)
Gal 2:19 For I through the law am dead to the (MOSAIC) law, that I might live unto God. (IN RIGHTEOUSNESS)
Gal 2:20 I am crucified with Christ (I HAVE CRUCIFIED ALL MY LUSTS AND SINS AND WORLDLY WANTS AND NEEDS): nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. (Galatians 5:24-26 “And THEY THAT ARE CHRIST’S HAVE CRUCIFIED THE FLESH with the affections and lusts. 25 IF WE LIVE IN THE SPIRIT, LET US ALSO WALK IN THE SPIRIT (HOLY). 26 Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.”)
Gal 2:21 I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the (MOSAIC) law, then Christ is dead in vain.”
ANOTHER GROUP OF PEOPLE ARE THOSE WHO WERE ONCE SAVED THEN APOSTATIZED AND NEVER COME BACK TO (CHRIST) SALVATION.
(Hebrews 6:4-6 “For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened (ABIDING IN CHRIST), and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost, 5 And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come, 6 If they shall (((FALL AWAY))), to renew them (((AGAIN))) unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God (((AFRESH))), and put him to an open shame.”
Galatians Chapter 3
By Faith, or by Works of the Mosaic Law?
Gal 3:1 “O foolish Galatians (FOR BELIEVING FALSE TEACHERS), who hath bewitched you (WHO HAS MISLED YOU),THAT YE SHOULD NOT OBEY THE TRUTH, before whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been evidently set forth, crucified among you? (HAS BEEN PREACHED SO CLEARLY TO YOU AS IF YOU WERE WITNESS TO THE CRUCIFIXION)
Gal 3:2 This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the WORKS OF THE (MOSAIC), or by the hearing of faith? (TRUE FAITH COMES NOT FROM WORKING THE MOSAIC LAW BUT BY TRULY ABIDING IN THE VINE (JESUS) AND LIVING A HOLY (OBEDIENT) LIFE UNTO HIM)
Gal 3:3 Are ye so foolish? having begun IN THE SPIRIT (BORN-AGAIN FILLED WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT), are ye now made perfect by the flesh? (A HARSH REBUKE AGAINST HYPOCRISY & APOSTASY AS THE GALATIANS WERE ADDING THE MOSAIC LAY TO THE MORAL LAW WHICH IS TRUE FAITH IN CHRIST)
Gal 3:4 Have ye suffered so many things in vain? (FOR ADHERING TO THE TRUE GOSPEL FROM ZEALOUS JEWS AND HEATHENS) if it be yet in vain. (AS TO LOSE SALVATION AND ALL THE BLESSINGS THAT ARE READY FOR THOSE WHO “ENDURE ‘TIL THE END TO BE SAVED”)
Gal 3:5 He therefore that ministereth to you the Spirit, and worketh miracles among you, doeth he it by the works of the (CEREMONIAL) law, or by the hearing of faith?
Gal 3:6 Even as Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness. (AGAIN, ABRAHAM HAD A WORKING FAITH, NOT A FALSE WORKS OF THE MOSAIC LAW BUT TRUE FAITH THAT OBEYS GOD’S COMMANDMENTS. ROMANS 4:2 “For if Abraham were justified by works (OF THE MOSAIC LAW), he hath whereof to glory; but not before God.” Genesis 26:5 “Because that Abraham OBEYED MY VOICE, and KEPT MY CHARGE, (KEPT) MY COMMANDMENTS, (KEPT) MY STATUTES, and (KEPT) MY (MORAL) LAWS.”)
Gal 3:7 Know ye therefore that they which are of faith, the same are the CHILDREN OF ABRAHAM. (WHO ARE THE “CHILDREN OF ABRAHAM”? Galatians 3:29 “And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.)
Gal 3:8 And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the heathen through faith, preached before the gospel unto Abraham, saying, In thee shall ALL NATIONS SHALL BE BLESSED. (THE GODLESS JUDIAZERS, “EVANGELICALS” ETC, WILL TELL YOU THAT “IF YOU BLESS ISRAEL (MEANING THE STATE OF ISRAEL AND THEIR “jEWS”, YOU WILL ALSO BE BLESSED. WHAT HERESY! jEWS AND EARTHLY ISRAEL ARE JESUS (GOD) HATERS… Gen 12:3 “And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.”)
Gal 3:9 So then they which be of faith are blessed with FAITHFUL (OBEDIENT) ABRAHAM.
The Righteous Shall Live by Faith
Gal 3:10 For as many as are of the works of the (MOSAIC) law are under the curse (LAW KEEPING jEWS & JUDIAZERS ARE CURSED): for it is written, Cursed is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them.
Gal 3:11 But that no man is justified by the (MOSAIC) law in the sight of God, it is evident: for, The just shall live by faith.
Gal 3:12 And the law is not of faith: but, The man that doeth them shall live in them.
Gal 3:13 Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the (MOSAIC) law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree:
Gal 3:14 That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.
The Law and the Promise
Gal 3:15 Brethren, I speak after the manner (EXAMPLE) of men; Though it be but a man’s covenant, yet if it be confirmed, no man disannulleth, or addeth thereto. (IT STANDS BY THE LAW OF THE LAND AND NO MAN CAN CHANGE IT)
Gal 3:16 Now to ABRAHAM AND HIS SEED WERE THE PROMISES MADE (SALVATION BY TRUE WORKING, OBEDIENT FAITH) . He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ. (ONE SEED, ONE FAITH, ONE BAPTISM, WHICH IS OF CHRIST AND ALL WHO ABIDE IN HIM. Galatians 3:7 “Know ye therefore that they which are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham.)
Gal 3:17 And this I say, that the covenant, that was confirmed before of God in Christ (IN HIS PROMISE TO ABRAHAM THE PROMISE WAS MADE – BEFORE THE MOSAIC LAW), the law, which was four hundred and thirty years after, cannot disannul, that it should make the promise of none effect.
Gal 3:18 For if the inheritance be of the law, it is no more of promise: but God gave it to Abraham by promise. (THERE CANNOT BE TWO WAYS OF OBTAINING SALVATION. GOD CHANGES NOT. THE PROMISE WAS GIVEN HUNDREDS OF YEARS BEFORE THE MOSAIC LAW CAME THROUGH JACOB (ISRAEL). JUSTIFICATION & SANCTIFICATION COME FROM ABIDING IN THE VINE (JESUS) AND NOT BY OBEYING THE MOSAIC LAW. Philippians 2:12 “Wherefore, my beloved, as YE HAVE ALWAYS OBEYED, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, WORK OUT YOUR OWN SALVATION with FEAR and TREMBLING.”
Gal 3:19 Wherefore then serveth the law? (IF THE LAW DOES NOT ANNUL THE ABRAHAMIC COVENANT, WHY WAS IT GIVEN?) It was added because of transgressions (THE MOSAIC LAW WAS GIVEN THAT MAN MIGHT KNOW HIS SINFULNESS AND THE NEED FOR MERCY AND FORGIVENESS OF SINS), till the seed (JESUS – THE MESSIAH) should come to whom the PROMISE WAS MADE; and it was ordained by angels in the hand of a mediator. (MOSES WAS THE MEDIATOR BETWEEN GOD AND THE PEOPLE AT THE TIME Deuteronomy 5:5).
Gal 3:20 Now a mediator is not a mediator of one (THERE MUST BE TWO PARTIES WHO HE MEDIATES BETWEEN), but God is one.
Gal 3:21 Is the law then against the promises of God? (IS THE LAW OF MOSES OPPOSED TO THE PROMISE TO ABRAHAM?) GOD FORBID: for if there had been a law given which could have given life, verily righteousness should have been by the law. (THE MOSAIC LAW WAS AS GOOD AS A LAW AS YOU GET BUT THE MOSAIC LAW COULD NOT GIVE LIFE AS NO MAN COULD KEEP THE 613 COMMANDS COMPLETELY HENCE THE SIN-OFFERINGS NEEDED. IF THERE WAS A PERFECT LAW, GOD WOULD HAVE SPARED HIS OWN SON)
Gal 3:22 But the scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to THEM THAT BELIEVE. (ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF WHAT “BELIEVE” MEANS IS John 3:36 “He that BELIEVETH on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not (MEANING DOES NOT OBEY) the Son shall not see life; but the WRATH of God abideth on him.”)
Gal 3:23 But before faith came (BEFORE THE GOSPEL WAS PUBLISHED), we were kept under the law (THE MOSAIC DISPENSATION), shut up unto the faith which should afterwards be revealed. (RESERVED AND PREPARED FOR THE GOSPEL DISPENSATION)
Gal 3:24 Wherefore THE LAW WAS OUR SCHOOLMASTER to bring us unto Christ, that we might be JUSTIFIED BY FAITH.
Gal 3:25 But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster (NO LONGER UNDER THE MOSAIC LAW). (NOW WE ARE UNDER GRACE MEANING Titus 2:11-12 “For the GRACE OF GOD that bringeth salvation hath APPEARED TO ALL MEN, 12 Teaching us that, DENYING UNGODLINESS and WORLDLY LUSTS (SIN), we should live SOBERLY, RIGHTEOUSLY, and GODLY, IN THIS PRESENT WORLD”)
Gal 3:26 For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.
Gal 3:27 For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ (WHO HAVE REPENTED IN GODLY SORROW) have put on Christ. (YOU ARE NOW MAKING NO PROVISION FOR SIN (THE FLESH) Rom 13:14 But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfill the lusts thereof.)
(ARE YOU “WALKING IN THE NEWNESS OF LIFE” OR ARE YOU LIVING A GODLESS LIFE AS A “SAVED SINNER”? Romans 6:4 “Therefore we are buried with him by baptism (FAITH) into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so WE ALSO SHOULD WALK IN NEWNESS OF LIFE” (HOLY, PERFECT, RIGHTEOUS.”)
Gal 3:28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female (CIRCUMCISION WAS DONE AWAY WITH AND OF COURSE JUST FOR MALES, ETC): for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. (MEANING ALL ARE SAVED THE SAME WAY)
Gal 3:29 And if ye be Christ’s,THEN YE ARE ABRAHAM’S SEED, and HEIRS ACCORDING TO THE PROMISE.”
(1st Peter 1:22-23 “Seeing ye have PURIFIED YOUR SOULS IN OBEYING THE TRUTH THROUGH THE SPIRIT unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently: 23 Being born again, not of corruptible seed (NOT BY EARTHLY MEANS), but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.”)
Galatians Chapter 4
Sons and Heirs
Gal 4:1 “Now I say, That the heir, as long as he is a child (INFANT – UNTIL HE ARRIVES OF AGE), differeth nothing from a servant, though he be lord (OWNER) of all; (THIS SHOWS TH PREEMINENCE OF A CHRISTIAN, VERSUS THE LEGAL DISPENSATION.)
Gal 4:2 But is under tutors and governors until the time appointed of the father.
Gal 4:3 Even so we (THE JEWS), when we were children (AS SERVANTS – GALATIANS 4:1), were in bondage under the elements of the world: (UNDER THE RUDIMENTS OF THE JEWISH RELIGION UNDER A STATE OF SERVITUDE)
Gal 4:4 But when the fulness of the time was come (APPOINTED BY THE FATHER), God sent forth his Son (ACCORDING TO THE PROMISE Genesis3:15. THIS PROVES JESUS WAS THE GREAT “I AM” FROM THE BEGINNING BEFORE THE INCARNATION – John 16:28), made of a woman, made under the law, (IN SUBJECTION TO THE LAW)
Gal 4:5 To redeem them (BY HIS ATONING SACRIFICE) that were under the law (UNDER THE CURSE OF THE LAW AND THE SERVILE STATE THE MOSAIC LAW BRINGS), that we (JEWS WHO BELIEVE) might receive the adoption of sons. (ALL THE PRIVILEGES OF ADULT SONS)
Gal 4:6 And because ye are sons (GENTILES WHO BELIEVE), God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.
Gal 4:7 Wherefore thou art no more a servant (UNDER THE RITES AND CEREMONIES OF THE MOSAIC LAW), but a son (A CHILD OF GOD); and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ. (Romans 8:17 “And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that WE SUFFER WITH HIM, that we may be also glorified together”).
Paul’s Concern for the Galatians
Gal 4:8 Howbeit then, when ye knew not God, ye did service unto them which by nature are no gods. (A PERFECT DEPICTION OF THE PROFESSING LUKEWARM “CHRISTIAN” TODAY THAT GOD SPEWS OUT. Romans 1:21 “Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.”)
Gal 4:9 But now, after that ye have known God, or rather are known of God, how turn ye again to the weak and beggarly elements, whereunto ye desire again to be in bondage? (THEY WERE BORN-AGAIN BUT FELL AWAY BACK UNDER THE MOSAIC LAW AND IT’S YOKE OF BONDAGE)
Gal 4:10 Ye observe days (JEWISH SABBATH’S), and months (NEW MOONS), and times (PASSOVER, PENTECOST, DAY OF PENTECOST), and years (ANNUAL ATONEMENT’S, SABBATICAL YEARS AND JUBILEES. JUIDIZING LEADS DIRECTLY TO HELL. OBSERVING THESE DAYS BELIEVING THEY ARE PART OF SALVATION IS BLASPHEMOUS)
Gal 4:11 I am afraid of you, lest I have bestowed upon you labour in vain. (PAUL IS PLEADING WITH THEM TO COME BACK TO THE TRUE GOSPEL TRUTH)
Gal 4:12 Brethren, I beseech you, be as I am (SOLD OUT FOR CHRIST “24/7” KEEPING THE MORAL COMMANDMENTS OF GOD); for I am as ye are (I WAS FORMERLY A JEW AND ADDICTED TO ALL IT’S RIGHTS AND CEREMONIES) : ye have not injured me at all. (YOU HAVE REVOLTED FROM JESUS, NOT ME PERSONALLY)
Gal 4:13 Ye know how through infirmity of the flesh (WEAKNESS/BODILY SICKNESS) I preached the gospel unto you at the first. (AT THE TIME OF THE WRITING HE HAD BEEN TWICE TO GALATIA)
Gal 4:14 And my temptation which was in my flesh ye despised not, nor rejected; but received me as an angel of God, even as Christ Jesus. (PAUL WAS AFFLICTED WITH MANY INFIRMITIES IN HIS BODY BUT THE GALATIANS RECEIVED HIM JOYFULLY)
Gal 4:15 Where is then the blessedness ye spake of? for I bear you record, that, if it had been possible, ye would have plucked out your own eyes, and have given them to me. (THEY WOULD HAVE DONE ANYTHING FOR PAUL)
Gal 4:16 Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth? (HAVE I CEASED TO BEING YOUR FRIEND AND BROTHER BECAUSE I PREACH YOU OUR OF BONDAGE, OUT OF SIN)?
Gal 4:17 They (THE WICKED JUDIAZING TEACHERS AMONG YOU) zealously affect you, but not well; yea, they would exclude you (FROM ME AND THE BLESSED GOSPEL – FROM THE KINGDOM OF GOD), that ye might affect them. (THAT YOU MAY LOVE THEM AND SHOW THEM AFFECTION)
Gal 4:18 But it is good to be zealously affected always in a good thing, and not only when I am present with you. (TRUE ZEAL IS A GOOD THING)
Gal 4:19 My little children, of whom I travail in birth again (AS I DID BEFORE) until Christ be formed in you, (UNTIL YOU PRAYERFULLY CHOOSE TO COME BACK TO CHRIST – PAUL IS SPEAKING TENDERLY AS TO SICK, WEAK CHILDREN)
Gal 4:20 I desire to be present with you now, and to change my voice (PONDERING ON WHETHER THEY NEED A STRONG REBUKE OR A GENTLER EXHORTATION); for I stand in doubt of you. (I AM PERPLEXED ON HOW TO DEAL WITH YOU – WHETHER SEVERELY OR GENTLY)
Example of Hagar and Sarah
Gal 4:21 Tell me, ye that desire to be under the law (JUDIAZERS), do ye not hear the law? (THE VERY LAW WAS A SCHOOLMASTER TO CHRIST – DO YOU KNOW KNOW ABOUT THE PROMISE TO ABRAHAM AND HIS SEED / CHILDREN)
Gal 4:22 For it is written, that Abraham had two sons (ISHMAEL & ISAAC), the one by a bondmaid (HAGAR), the other by a freewoman (SARAI – SARA).
Gal 4:23 But he who was of the bondwoman was born after the flesh (IN A NATURAL WAY),; but he of the freewoman was by promise (SUPERNATURALLY AS THEY WERE BOTH MUCH PAST AGE).
Gal 4:24 Which things are an allegory (TO BE UNDERSTOOD SPIRITUALLY): for these are the two covenants (TWO TESTAMENTS); the one from the mount Sinai (FOR THE JEWS IN THE OLD COVENANT), which gendereth to bondage, which is Agar. (ALL WHO ARE UNDER THE JEWISH COVENANT ARE IN BONDAGE – SIN – WHICH IS TYPIFIED BY AGAR)
Gal 4:25 For this Agar is mount Sinai in Arabia (MEANING SHE WELL REPRESENTS THE LAW), and answereth to Jerusalem which now is (JERUSALEM THAT IS NOT HAVING ONLY A TEMPORARY EXISTENCE- TRUE CHILDREN OF GOD ARE LOOKING FOR THE NEW JERUSALEM), and is in bondage with her children. (LIKE AGAR WHO IS IN BONDAGE TO THE LAW AND TO THE ROMANS)
Gal 4:26 But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all. (Revelation 21:2″ And I John saw the holy city, NEW JERUSALEM, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.)
Gal 4:27 For it is written, Rejoice, thou barren that bearest not; break forth and cry, thou that travailest not: for the desolate hath many more children than she which hath an husband. (THE JEWISH STATE, WHICH HAD A HUSBAND, HAD BEEN IN COVENANT SO LONG WITH GOD IS NOW CAST OFF AND DESOLATE HEADING TO ETERNAL DESTRUCTION BUT NOW THE GENTILES, WHO HAD NO HUSBAND / NO GOD ARE THE CHILDREN OF THE PROMISE)
Gal 4:28 Now we, brethren, as Isaac was, are the children of promise. (WHOSOEVER BELIEVES ARE NOW THE CHILDREN OF GOD, THE SEED OF ABRAHAM)
Gal 4:29 But as then he (ISHMAEL) that was born after the flesh persecuted him (ISAAC) that was born after the Spirit (HAD A SUPERNATURAL BIRTH), even so it is now. (SO THE JEWS PERSECUTE THE CHRISTIANS AS THEY HATE THE TRUE MESSIAH AND SHOW THEY ARE RATHER THE POSTERITY OF HAGAR RATHER THAN OF SARAH)
Gal 4:30 Nevertheless what saith the scripture? Cast out the bondwoman and her son: for the son of the bondwoman shall not be heir with the son of the freewoman. (PRESENT DAY JERUSALEM AND HER CHILDREN (“JEWS”) ARE CAST OUT OF THE FAVOR OF GOD AND ARE NOT HEIRS OF THE FREEWOMAN. THEY WILL NOT INHERIT THE BLESSINGS PROMISED TO ABRAHAM AS THEY BELIEVE NOT IN THE PROMISED SEED)
Revelation 2:9 “I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.”
Revelation 3:9 “Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.”
Gal 4:31 So then, brethren, we (WHO BELIEVE IN THE TRUE MESSIAH – JESUS) are not children of the bondwoman, but of the free.”
Galatians Chapter 5
Christ Has Set Us Free
Gal 5:1 “STAND FAST therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free (FROM THE CEREMONIAL LAW), and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.
Gal 5:2 Behold, I Paul say unto you, that if ye be circumcised (UNDER THE NOTION OF BEING UNDER THE MOSAIC LAW FOR JUSTIFICATION…THEN), Christ shall profit you nothing.
Gal 5:3 For I testify again to every man that is circumcised, that he is a debtor to do the whole law. (HE BINDS HIMSELF TO OBEY THE ENTIRE LAW OF MOSES.. IT WAS IMPOSSIBLE FOR MAN TO KEEP THE ENTIRE 613 LAWS OF THE OT, ESPECIALLY BECAUSE THE HAD NOT THE HOLY SPIRIT DWELLING IN THEM).
Gal 5:4 Christ is become of no effect unto you (WHO SEEK TO BE JUSTIFIED UNDER THE MOSAIC LAW), whosoever of you are justified by the law; FALLEN FROM GRACE. (THEY WERE ONCE IN COVENANT WITH GOD BUT NOW APOSTATIZED AND ARE NO LONGER UNDER GRACE. YET ANOTHER “UNCONDITIONAL ETERNAL SECURITY” KILLER)
Gal 5:5 For we (CHRISTIANS) through the Spirit wait for the hope of righteousness by faith.
Gal 5:6 For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision; but faith which WORKETH BY LOVE. (CHARITY, BENEVOLENCE, LOVING OUR NEIGHBOURS BY CALLING THEM OUR OF SIN TO REPENTANCE AND HOLINESS, ETC). HOW DO YOU LOVE JESUS? JOHN 14:15 “IF YE LOVE ME, KEEP MY COMMANDMENTS”)
Gal 5:7 Ye did run well (CHRISTIAN LIFE IS OFTEN RESEMBLED BY A RACE AND ONE MUST “ENDURE ‘TIL THE END TO BE SAVED”. THEY STARTED WITH GREAT ZEAL); who did hinder you that ye should not obey the truth? (WHO DROVE YOU BACK FROM THE TRUE FAITH AND TURNED YOU BACK INTO BONDAGE TO THE MOSAIC LAW?)
Gal 5:8 This persuasion cometh not of him that calleth you. (THE NECESSITY OF KEEPING THE MOSAIC LAW. ONCE CALLED NOT ALWAYS CALLED.)
Gal 5:9 A LITTLE LEAVEN LEAVENETH THE WHOLE LUMP. (IN THIS CASE THE JUDIAZERS BUT IN ANY CASE IF ONE LET’S IN JUST A LITTLE COMPROMISE HERE AND THERE, IT WILL LEAD TO TOTAL DESTRUCTION)
Gal 5:10 I have confidence in you through the Lord (PAUL HAD CONFIDENCE THAT THEY WOULD COME BACK FROM THEIR FALLING AWAY FROM GRACE), that ye will be none otherwise minded: but he that troubleth you (THE FALSE TEACHER) shall bear his judgment, whosoever he be. (2ND PETER CHAPTER 2 AND THE BOOK OF JUDE EXPLAIN IN GREAT DETAIL THE PERILS OF THE FALSE TEACHERS)
Gal 5:11 And I, brethren, if I yet preach circumcision, why do I yet suffer persecution? then is the offence of the cross (WOULD BE) ceased. (PAUL WAS BEING DIRECTLY CONFRONTED AND PERSECUTED NOT ONLY ABOUT PREACHING AGAINST THE MOSAIC LAW NO BEING NEEDED ANYMORE BUT ALSO ABOUT CIRCUMCISING TIMOTHY. HE DID SO BECAUSE AS HIS SUCCESSOR, TIMOTHY WOULD BE PREACHING TO JEWS. TIMOTHY HAD A GREEK (GENTILE) FATHER AND A JEWISH MOTHER)
Gal 5:12 I would they were even cut off which trouble you. (CAST OUT OF YOUR CHURCH – FROM COMMUNION WITH YOU)
Gal 5:13 For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty (FROM THE RITES AND CEREMONIES OF THE MOSAIC LAW); only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh (DO NOT USE IT FOR FLESHLY, SINFUL DESIRES), but by love serve one another. (TO THE UTMOST, TRUE WORKING FAITH)
Gal 5:14 For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. (THIS VERSE IS ONE OF THE MOST WREST IN THE BIBLE BY THE “HYPER GRACE” HERETICKS. LET’S DEFINE IT WITH SCRIPTURE:
Romans 13:8-10 “Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law. 9 For this, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Thou shalt not covet; and if there be any other commandment, it is briefly comprehended in this saying, namely, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. 10 Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.”
Leviticus 19:17 “Thou shalt not hate thy brother in thine heart: thou shalt in any wise REBUKE THY NEIGHBOUR, and NOT SUFFER SIN UPON HIM.”)
Gal 5:15 But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another. (THESE CHURCHES HAVE CLEARLY FALLEN AWAY FROM CHRIST AND WERE IN DESPAIR)
Keep in Step with the Spirit
Gal 5:16 This I say then, WALK IN THE SPIRIT, and YE SHALL NOT FULFILL THE LUSTS OF THE FLESH.
(1st John 2:15-17 “LOVE NOT THE WORLD, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16 For all that is in the world, the LUST OF THE FLESH, and the LUST OF THE EYES, and the PRIDE OF LIFE, is not of the Father, but is of the world. 17 And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that DOETH THE WILL OF GOD.abideth for ever.”)
Gal 5:17 For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would. (THE LONGSUFFERING SPIRIT OF GOD CONTINUES TO STRIVE WITH YOU EVEN IN YOUR APOSTASY AND LEST YOU REPENT AND COME BACK TO YOUR 1ST LOVE, YOU WILL PERISH AS YOU “WOULD NOT DO THE THINGS AS YOU WOULD” (SHOULD) IN YOUR JUDIAZING STATE)
Gal 5:18 But if ye be led of the Spirit (IN ALL HOLINESS), ye are not under the (MOSAIC) law. (IF YOU COME BACK TO CHRIST AND LET THE HOLY SPIRIT LEAD YOU WHOM YOU ARE NOW GRIEVING, YOU WILL NO LONGER BE UNDER THE POWER OF SIN AND ALL IT’S GUILT)
Gal 5:19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness (LEWDNESS),
Gal 5:20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,
Gal 5:21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
Gal 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
Gal 5:23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. (THERE IS NO LAW FOR A RIGHTEOUS MAN, THE PERFECT MORAL LAW OF GOD DOES NOT COME DOWN ON A TRUE CHRISTIAN THAT WALKS IN HOLINESS)
Gal 5:24 And they that are Christ’s HAVE CRUCIFIED THE FLESH with the affections and lusts. (THEY HAVE CRUCIFIED ALL SINFUL (FLESHLY) DESIRES AND NAILED THEM TO THE CROSS AS THEY WALK IN THE SPIRIT OF GOD)
Gal 5:25 IF we live in the Spirit, LET US ALSO WALK IN THE SPIRIT.
(1st John 1:7 :But IF WE WALK IN THE LIGHT, AS HE IS IN THE LIGHT, (THEN) we have fellowship one with another, and (THEN) the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.
1st John 2:6 “He that saith he abideth in him ought HIMSELF ALSO SO TO WALK, even as HE (JESUS) walked.”)
Gal 5:26 Let us not be desirous of vain glory (DESIRE ESTEEM OF MEN), provoking one another, envying one another.” (BECAUSE OF THEIR WEALTH, SOCIAL STATUS, TALENT, ETC)
Galatians Chapter 6
Bear One Anothers Burdens
Gal 6:1 “Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault (NOT BLATANT WILLFUL SIN BUT MAYBE FALLING BACK INTO LEGAL BONDAGE TO THE MOSAIC LAW OR STUMBLING BY SURPRISE, STRESS OF TEMPTATION, ETC) , ye which are spiritual (THOSE WHO ARE ABIDING IN CHRIST IN HOLINESS WALKING IN THE SPIRIT AND NOT IN THE FLESH), restore such an one in the spirit of meekness (RESTORE BACK TO THE TRUE CHRISTIAN FAITH LEST THEY TOTALLY APOSTATIZE); considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted. (THIS IS WHY A CHRISTIAN IS NEVER TO “HANG OUT” WITH SINNERS. HERE IT GOES FURTHER THAT ONE SHOULD BE ABUNDANTLY CAREFUL EVEN WITH A BROTHER THAT MAY FALL INTO SIN, NOT WILLFULLY AS CHRISTIANS DO NOT COMMIT SIN WILLFULLY. THE TEMPTATION TO SIN CAN INFECT THE MOST STRINGENT RIGHTEOUS MAN IF HE PUT’S HIS GUARD DOWN, EVEN FOR JUST A BIT, AND EXPOSES HIMSELF TO SITUATIONS HE SHOULD STAY FAR FROM IN THE FIRST PLACE)
Gal 6:2 Bear ye one anothers burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ. (IRON SHARPENS IRON. WE ARE TO LIVE IN FELLOWSHIP WITH OTHER BRETHREN AND HELP EACH OTHER OUT AS WE RUN THE RACE DILIGENTLY. WE MUST ASSIST, ENCOURAGE, FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT TOGETHER AND HELP EACH OTHER IN TIMES OF TRIALS, SICKNESS, ETC)
Gal 6:3 For if a man think himself to be something (ABOVE OTHER BRETHREN OR ON HIS OWN STRENGTH WITHOUT THE HOLY SPIRIT’S GUIDANCE. CHARITY (LOVE) THINKETH NO EVIL), when he is nothing (LIFTED UP IN VAIN SELF-DECEIT), he deceiveth himself. (DECEIVES HIS OWN HEART)
Gal 6:4 But LET EVERY MAN PROVE HIS OWN WORK (TRY, EXAMINE HIS OWN WORKS (CONDUCT) AS JUDGMENT FIRST BEGINS AT THE HOUSE OF THE LORD), and THEN shall he have rejoicing in himself alone, and not in another. (HE WILL NOT BE DEPENDENT ON THE APPLAUSE OF OTHERS NOR COMPARE HIMSELF TO OTHERS . HOW EASY IS IT TO COMPARE OURSELVES TO VILE SINNERS! NEVER THINK OF YOURSELF MORE HIGHLY THAN YOU OUGHT – 1Co 11:31 “For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged”)
Gal 6:5 For every man shall bear his own burden. (EVERY MAN WILL GIVE A PERSONAL ACCOUNT TO JESUS ON THAT DAY, WHETHER THEY LIVED A RIGHTEOUS LIFE OF SERVICE TO GOD AND OTHERS OR WHETHER THEY FED THEIR FLESH AND WE “LUKEWARM cHRISTIANS” THAT WILL BE PUKED OUT.Revelation 3:15-16 “I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. 16 So then because thou art LUKEWARM, and neither cold nor hot, I will SPUE THEE OUT OF MY MOUTH.”
Revelation 22:11 “He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still.”)
Gal 6:6 Let him that is taught in the word communicate unto him that teacheth in all good things. (IN SEEMS THAT THERE WERE SOME IN GALATIA THAT RECEIVED THE WORD YET DID NOT SUPPORT THE TEACHERS OF THE WORD OR OTHERS THAT WERE LABOURING IN MINISTRY. THE “WORLDS” SCHOOLTEACHERS, FOR EXAMPLE, GET PAID A WAGE FOR THEIR LABOURS, HOW MUCH MORE GLORIOUS SHALL A RIGHTEOUS TEACHER OF THE GOSPEL BE COMPENSATED FOR EXHORTING LOST SOULS TO SALVATION, TO EDUCATE NEWER CHRISTIANS IN THE RIGHTEOUS AND HOLY WAYS OF THE LORD, ETC)
1st Timothy 5:17 “Let the elders that rule well be counted worthy of double honour, especially they who labour in the word and doctrine.” (LET HIM HAVE A LARGER “DOUBLE’ SALARY AS THE ELDERS LABOUR DAY AND NIGHT FOR THE CAUSE OF CHRIST. THEY VISIT THE SICK, TAKE CARE OF THE NEEDY, RELIEVE THE BRETHREN IN NEED OF FOOD, LODGING, ETC.) ***THIS IS NOT A CALL TO GET MONETARILY RICH LIKE THE MAJORITY OF THE WOLVES IN THE PULPITS TODAY. THAT’S A REPROACH TO CHRIST. WHAT IT MEANS THAT A TEACHER (ELDER) THAT IS LABOURING DAY AND NIGHT SHOULD BE COMFORTABLE IN THE NECESSITIES OF LIFE AS TO NOT HAVE TO LABOUR 15 HOURS PER DAY IN A SECULAR JOB, TAKING TIME AWAY FROM THE MINISTRY OF THE KINGDOM.)
Gal 6:7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked (YOU CAN’T DECEIVE GOD AND HE DOES NOT COMPROMISE): for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. (HE WHO IS A WILLFUL SINNER, NO MATTER HOW MUCH THEY MAY OUTWARDLY PROFESS CHRIST, GO TO CHURCH, GO ON “MISSION TRIPS” ETC, THEY WILL BE REWARDED WITH HELLFIRE. YOU WILL BE JUDGED BY YOUR “FRUIT” WORKS. HE WHO LIVES RIGHTEOUSLY REAPS HEAVEN. WHO’S SALVATION DOES GOD AUTHOR?
1st Peter 1:15-16 “But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; 16 Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.”Hebrews 5:9 “And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation UNTO ALL THEM THAT OBEY HIM.”Matthew 5:48 “Be ye therefore PERFECT, even as your Father which is in heaven is PERFECT.”)
Gal 6:8 For HE THAT SOWETH IN HIS FLESH shall of the flesh reap CORRUPTION; but HE THAT SOWETH TO THE SPIRIT shall of the Spirit reap LIFE EVERLASTING. (SOWING TO THE FLESH (WILLFUL SINNING) IS THE NORM FOR THE LUKEWARM “CHRISTIAN”. THEY LOOK (DRESS) LIKE THE WORLD, THEY GET ENTERTAINED BY THE WORLD, THEY ACT LIKE THE WORLD, ETC)
Gal 6:9 And LET US NOT BE WERY IN WELL DOING: for in due season we shall reap, IF WE FAINT NOT. (IF WE DON’T APOSTATIZE (GO BACK INTO WILLFUL SIN) AND LOSE SALVATION.
Romans 2:4-7 “Or despisest thou the riches of HIS goodness and forbearance and longsuffering; not knowing that the goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance? 5 But after THY hardness and IMPENITENT HEART (INCLUDING THE “SAVED SINNERS” THAT ARE IN MOST ALL THE CHURCHES TODAY) treasurest up unto thyself wrath against the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God; (THE HARDENING OF THE HEART IS GOD PULLING BACK LIGHT IN RIGHTEOUSNESS & JUSTICE WHEN ONE HAS NOT CHOSEN TO SEE OR HEAR THE LIGHT THEY ALREADY HAVE) 6 Who will render to every man ACCORDING TO HIS DEEDS: 7 To them who by PATIENT CONTINUANCE IN WELL DOING seek for glory and honour and immortality, ETERNAL LIFE.”)
Gal 6:10 As we have therefore opportunity, LET US DO GOOD (WORKS) unto all men, ESPECIALLY unto them who are OF THE HOUSEHOLD OF FAITH. (A TRUE CHRISTIAN IS TO HELP THE DOWNTRODDEN, THE ORPHAN, THE WIDOW WHETHER THEY ARE A SAINT OR A SINNER. WE ARE ESPECIALLY TO HELP THOSE WHO ARE IN THE FAITH)
Final Warning and Benediction
Gal 6:11 Ye see how large a letter I have written unto you with mine own hand. (THIS IS THE LARGEST LETTER SAINT PAUL WROTE TO ANY CHURCH)
Gal 6:12 As many as desire to make a fair shew in the flesh (IN OUTWARD THINGS, NOT GODLY THINGS), they constrain you to be circumcised (JEWS TRYING TO BRING WEAK CHRISTIANS BACK INTO THE BONDAGE OF CIRCUMCISION) ; only lest they should suffer persecution for the cross of Christ. (IF THESE WICKED JUDIAZERS TRULY SERVED CHRIST, THEY WOULD SUFFER PERSECUTION AS ALL CHRISTIANS DO. THE GREAT COST OF LIVING FOR CHRIST:
Matthew 10:34-36 “Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I CAME NOT TO SEND PEACE, BUT A SWORD (DIVISION). 35 For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. 36 And a man’s foes (ENEMIES) shall be they OF HIS OWN HOUSEHOLD.”)
Gal 6:13 For neither they themselves who are circumcised keep the law; but desire to have you circumcised, that they may glory in your flesh. (THE WICKED jEWS GLORIED IN CONVERTING CHRISTIANS BACK INTO BONDAGE AND AWAY FROM JESUS. THE LOVE THAT WAS FORMERLY FIXED ON THE JEWS IS NOW TRANSFERRED TO THE GENTILES)
Revelation 3:9 “Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.”)
Gal 6:14 But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world. (A TRUE CHRISTIAN EXALTS NOTHING BUT CHRIST CRUCIFIED. THEY WANT NO ACCOLADES FROM THE WORLD.)
Gal 6:15 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision, but a new creature. (WHERE ALL THINGS BECOME NEW)
Gal 6:16 And as many as WALK ACCORDING TO THIS RULE, peace be on them, and mercy, and upon THE ISRAEL OF GOD. (THE “ISRAEL OF GOD” AKA THE CHURCH OF GOD ARE TRUE BELIEVERS WHO ARE CRUCIFIED TO THIS WORLD AND ALL IT’S AFFECTIONS AND LUSTS.
Galatians 5:24-36 “And THEY THAT ARE CHRIST’S HAVE CRUCIFIED THE FLESH WITH THE AFFECTIONS AND LUSTS. 25 IF we live in the Spirit, let us also WALK in the Spirit. 26 Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.”)
Gal 6:17 From henceforth let no man trouble me (BY ARGUING AND DISPUTES): for I bear in my body the marks of the Lord Jesus. (A CHRISTIAN IS BATTERED AND “BRUISED” BY THE WORLD AS IT LIES IN GREAT DARKNESS. THEY HATE THE TRUTH. THE GREATEST OPPOSITION AND THE WORST OFFENDERS ARE THE LUKEWARM HERETICKS)
Gal 6:18 Brethren, the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Amen. To the Galatians written from Rome.”
