  • Ronnette Part 2 Galatians 1 Only God can explain this well.Glory to God! on Galatians 1:16 - 1 year ago
    Galatians 1:19 Paul did not see any other apostles but James the brother of Jesus. Now read on and absorbed what God revealed to us. There is a reason why this verse is important. Other Scholars said that the Book of James was written by James the brother of Jesus. How could that be? The message in James was that faith without works is dead James 2:20 & James 2:26. How can you explained the opposition on Pauls messages Ephesians 2:8-9? It is because the author of James is James the brother of John the sons of Zebedee. That James was killed by King Herod Acts 12:2 about 44 AD or CE. He was not seen by Paul after Paul went to Arabia. That James had written the book of James before James died to tell the 12 tribes what is about to happened in the tribulation ( my opinion after the church age will be raptured) James 1:1. If this was written by James the brother of Jesus, he would have not contradicted what he heard from Paul because he saw Paul right after Paul went to Arabia Galatians 1:17-19. The second part of 2 Timothy 2:15 we are not ashamed to tell all that we must rightly divide the word of truth. Know the physical and spiritual messages of God. It is only revealed when you trust Jesus and not yourself. If you do not rightly divide you will be confuse of your salvation. We are saved by the blood of Jesus Christ. Amazing God we have. I glorify God by telling you this revelation. I please only God and not men. My life is a true testament of God's glory. Who has the mind of God Romans 11:33-36, 1 Corinthians 2:15-16. My brothers and sisters in Christ, if you are a leader in church, let the Spirit of God speaks to you..Take, I pray thee, my blessing that is brought to thee; because God hath dealt graciously with me, and because I have enough. And he urged him, and he took it. Genesis 33:11. But he said, As the LORD liveth, before whom I stand, I will receive none. And he urged him to take it; but he refused.

    Galatians 1:4-5 Amen. Galatians 1:3.

    Dear Brother Giannis,

    The true believers walk in the Spirit of God. We are in the Kingdom of God here on earth. When we study the WORD, we use 2 Timothy 2:15 to rightly divide the word of truth. We do not put in vain what Jesus did in the cross. We are sealed and we are going to heaven. While on the flesh we try not to sin to please God. But we are still in the flesh we will still sin if you let your flesh overcome the spirit that is in you. We die daily, but we are saved. God has spoken to people in divers manner in past times to the Jews and Prophets Hebrews 1:1. The book of James has a physical messages for the Jews and spiritual messages for the Gentiles. Salvation is sealing yourself to God. After you are sealed you do the work God the Spirit tells you to do. It is not you who is doing the good work. It is God in you that does all the good work Otherwise if you are the one who is doing the good work you just put yourself in vanity and that is what I called do gooders. Do gooders do good work to please men.unlike true believers do good work because God the Spirit help them to do good work to please God and Glorify God. God completed everything when He died on the cross and we do not put that act of grace in vain. The people who are saved have faith in God. Their faith do not need work because Jesus did it all. No true believer in the blood can claim and pat themselves in the back and say Lord I did good work on earth so I deserve to go to heaven. True believer says Lord I am a sinner and I thank God He sent His only begotten son to die for me instead of me going to hell. Your grace o Lord is sufficient to save me from this evil world. I confess I sin against your Holy name I am so sorry. With the help of the Holy Spirit I will listen to do your will and not my will to be holy until you come and meet you in the cloud to heaven. While we are in the body we always remember 2 Corinthians 5:1-21 andallversesinthebiblethatappliesincurrentsituation

    There is no contradiction between Paul and James dear Ronnette. James shows another aspect of the word "faith". What James says in his epistle is that works are the external signs of an internal faith. If works do not exist then that means that there is no active faith inside a person. An active faith is the one that produces the fruit of the Holly Spirit, and that fruit is shown externally by works. So believers that do not work their salvation to produce fruit are not to enter Heaven, since their faith is considered dead. Salvation produces good works, if not then the particular person is in disobedience (means sinning) to God's Word, and if they stay like that till the end of their lifes and do not repent and correct themselves, then the wage of their sin is death.
