  • Richard G Zitha on Galatians 3 - 9 years ago
    How is it that people try to obtain righteousness by doing what the law requires.Surely by law no man is justified,it is only by Christ Jesus. If we could obtain righteousness by our own works then Christ died in vain.Righteousness has nothing to do with what we do or didn 't,But it has everything to do with Christ Jesus on the Cross.Amen

    Water baptism pictures Spirit baptism. When you believe in Jesus for salvation, Spirit baptism occurs as a matter of fact. Spirit baptism is immersion into Christ, thus clothing you with Christ Gal. 3 26 27 . The fact of this provision allows for the function of the life of faith disciples indeed that accesses the power of the Spirit. Cr. John Van Gelderen RevivalFocus Back to the Basics

    very good
  • Michael daniels on Galatians 3 - 9 years ago
    we are all the same in the eye of god
  • MC. Dickson on Galatians 3 - 9 years ago
    Galatians 3 28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female. For ye are all one in Christ Jesus. Meaning all can receive holy ghost baptism and become part takers of the promise of God to Abraham through the grace given by our personal saviour Jesus christ

    The chapter has Agar and not Hagar

    Faith VS The Law. At the giving of the Law 3000 were slain. At the giving of Pentecost 3000 were saved. I am so glad to not be under the Law, but under GRACE. If it be of works, than there can be no grace. By Grace are you saved by Faith, not of works least anyone should boast. If works cannot save us, how can bad works unsave us? They can 't. It was amazing grace, how sweet the sound that saved a wrench like me.
  • Saved by Grace on Galatians 3:3 - 9 years ago
    The reality is you are NOT made perfect by flesh. After all "God concluded all men in unbelief so that He could have mercy on all ". Done. ALL men fell short. Only fools think that they can save themselves or are doing so. Notice Paul is rebuking saved people here calling them foolish. The saved! Why. They were not speaking truth of Gods gift of Grace and acting like Pharisees if you will. The Spirit in Jesus purifies you fully. If it didn 't why would it be called pure? Who is going to say you are not made perfect by Him? Only someone ignorant of Gods righteousness. It is His righteousness you know. It is not ours! Men had none. No not one. Can you do it by yourself? Never. Is "saved " done once done? YES! It is past tense. Why we thank Jesus !!!!!!!! He gave all. He did what we could not Save ourselves. The saved persons end is ever lasting life. As it written Romans 6 22. This is your reality if saved. When? Right now. As written. Let no man lie to you.
  • Theodore A. Jones on Galatians 3:19 - 9 years ago
    The law referenced is the change that was made after the priesthood was changed. Heb. 7 12. Moses did not have the authority to make any changes of the law. And no angles were involved in putting the Sinai code into effect.

    the house of isreal is above all nation!!!
  • MockingBird on Galatians 3:13 - 10 years ago
    I Praise God that Jesus was willing to die for me and become a curse for me that I may live !!! I don 't have to sin any more I don 't have to be sick any more !!!!! When Jesus was on the cross He took on every sin, sickness, disease that would ever come against me man. I have been bought back Praise the Name of the Lord God forever ever !!!!
  • Blessed on Galatians 3 - 10 years ago
    Abraham is the father of many nations. Ismael Arab, Issac Hebrew both became prosperous because Abraham is their father. On a spiritual level those that believe in GOD and believe he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him are the children of Abraham. By are faith we are born in the family of GOD.

  • Biblereader on Galatians 3:13 - 10 years ago
    Here Paul quotes Deuteronomy 21:22, 23, which clearly refers to a stake, not a cross. Since such a means of execution made the person �a curse,� it would not be proper for Christians to decorate their homes with images of Christ impaled.
  • Robert Mc George on Galatians 3 - 10 years ago
    I thank GOD for His Word that has Redeemed me from the Curse of the Law.
  • Joe on Galatians 3 - 10 years ago
    It's from Deuteronomy 21:23
  • Theo on Galatians 3 - 10 years ago
    In verse 13 Paul says, "it is written ", where is it written?
  • Adetula babatunde on Galatians 3:13 - 10 years ago
    this is a divine spiritual intervension that God himself in Christ Jesus involve direct to remove any curse that has been placed on humanity as long as we believe in the operation done in the cross of calvary . Deut.
  • Bill Gremm on Galatians 3 - 10 years ago
    It is not water baptism in Romans 6. If we have trust Christ then within the transaction of faith/grace we are baptized into his death - putting to death the old man and then raised a new creature (literally the seed of God) joined together in Christ. Water baptism is only symbolic of what took place when trust was placed in the Son of God for redempton of sins and His eternal life. Even John's baptism was symbolic of what was to come.
  • Rob on Galatians 3:13 - 10 years ago
    Thank you Lord Jesus, for everything: endless love, the Holy Spirit, reborn faith, a new heart, salvation, truth, hope, peace, and opening the door to being part of you family.
    Thank you LORD GOD for bringing Jesus into my life.
  • Ciscokid on Galatians 3 - 10 years ago
    27 For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.
    Many people ***ume that Paul is speaking of the Baptism of the Holy Spirit in verse 27.But I contend Paul is speaking of WATER BAPTISM. Many of you know that one verse of scripture will prove another verse of scripture. Romans 6 PROVES that it's WATER baptism that causes us to put on Christ. Yes we are certainly JUSTIFIED by faith---WHEN by faith we obey the scriptures.
  • Norm on Galatians 3:24 - 11 years ago
    I receive more than I can take in everytime I read the letters of Paul. I have to read them over and over again for the greatest teachings except those Jesus Himself gave us.
  • Chris Lambe on Galatians 3:14 - 11 years ago
    The Blessing of Abraham was clearly To Be The Father of The Faithful... and produce The Son (Christ) through His line. The Promise is Christ Himself. He is The Son of Promise. This is Our blessing now. To Be In Christ by Faith and not the law.
  • Joseph ryder on Galatians 3 - 11 years ago
    some denominations have used Galatians 3 28 as giving woman right to teach or preach. Paul said no and in first chapter tells of his authority comes from Christ not man, now he said God knows I lie not, How could the meaning be used for woman ministers to teach making Paul a liar
  • Bro. Daniel FC on Galatians 3 - 11 years ago
    Comments on Galatians Chapter 3:10. �FOR AS MANY AS ARE OF THE WORKS OF THE LAW ARE UNDER THE CURSE: 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.� I think the whole chapter presents many challenges in understanding correctly our relationship with God and our fellow human beings. If understood incorrectly it can lead to unnecessary pain and suffering, despair, even destruction. Here is what I mean (true story): A young family, with two children; the wife, a musically talented lady in her upper twenty�s, the daughter of a minister of a �particular� church, and the husband, a little older but not wiser. At one point, the young husband feeling �freed from the Law� commits adultery. And of course, since there was no breaking of the Law, (the law being �nailed to the cross�), he did not feel guilty, and didn�t make much of it. But when his wife found out, she decided to divorce him: not because he broke the seventh commandment, but because of �infidelity�� When she told me what happened, and her plans to divorce, I was shocked. I tried my hardest to convince her not to do it. I talked to her about forgiveness in Christ, I asked her to consider the future of her kids without their dad, but to no avail. I finally mentioned God�s commandment found in Matthew 19:6 which says: �� What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.� When she heard that, she said: �Brother Daniel, I can�t keep the Law! I�ve got to go through with the divorce; I don�t want to be under the curse of the Law, there�s nothing worse than that! But God will take care of me and the kids�� So, here they were: four people, saved and �free from the curse of the Law�, and very much cursed by the misinterpretation of one bible verse. Now, is this what the Apostle Paul is teaching in verse 10? Absolutely not! Here, in order to build his case against circumcision, the apostle is quoting the text from Deuteronomy 28:15. �� IF THOU WILT NOT HEARKEN UNTO THE VOICE OF THE LORD THY GOD, TO OBSERVE TO DO ALL HIS COMMANDMENTS AND HIS STATUTES WHICH I COMMAND THEE THIS DAY; THAT ALL THESE CURSES SHALL COME UPON THEE, AND OVERTAKE THEE:� And from verse 16 to verse 68, God pronounces 53 curses against those WHO WILL NOT �observe all his commandments and his statutes�: Thus, (Paul) is implying that if you want to be circumcised in order to be �right with God�, then you need to keep the rest of the �Sacrificial and Ceremonial Laws�. A short overview of the Laws given to the people of Israel by God looks like this: 1. Religious Laws: A) Moral, B) Regarding Tithes and Offerings, C) Sacrificial, D) Ceremonial, A) Moral: a) The Ten Commandments (TTC) b) TTC Expanded B) Tithes and a) The Tenth Offerings, b) First fruits, c) Miscellaneous offerings, C) Sacrificial: a) Sin offerings, b) Peace offerings, c) Burnt offerings, d) Continual offerings, e) Drink offerings, f) Altars, g) Miscellaneous furniture, D) Ceremonial: a) Regarding the Levite priests, b) Regarding the people, c) The First Born, d) The Covenant of circumcision, e) Regarding the Temple/Tabernacle, f) The Feasts, etc. 2. Civil Laws: relating to the rights of the people, the conduct and relations between members of the family and of the community, including the king. 3. Criminal Laws: Same as above Now, the SACRIFICIAL AND CEREMONIAL LAWS make up the body of Law which Apostle Paul calls �the schoolmaster� which pointed to Christ: Galatians 3:24 �Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith. 25 But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster.� Today we have no use for circumcision, sin offerings, burnt offerings or any Ceremonial Laws: We have Christ; the Type met the Anti-type. After the Roman Conquest, the Jewish CIVIL AND CRIMINAL LAWS had no �teeth�, and they were subject to the Roman Laws. No one could implement any of them, except with the approval of the Roman Governor, including Christ�s crucifixion. So, today the only valid Laws remaining are: The Moral Laws, including the Ten Commandments which Apostle James calls �The Royal Law� ( James 2:8), and Laws regarding the Tithes and Offerings. In support of this Apostle Paul makes the following statements in Romans Chapter 7: (7) �What shall we say then? Is the law sin? God forbid. Nay, I had not known sin, but by the law: for I had not known lust, except the law had said, Thou shalt not covet. (12) WHEREFORE THE LAW IS HOLY, AND THE COMMANDMENT HOLY, AND JUST, AND GOOD. (16) If then I do that which I would not, I consent unto the law that it is good. (22) FOR I DELIGHT IN THE LAW OF GOD AFTER THE INWARD MAN: (25) � SO THEN WITH THE MIND I MYSELF SERVE THE LAW OF GOD;� Amen.
  • R. D. Mattock on Galatians 3 - 11 years ago
    Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: The Beautiful exchange. Jesus took our curse so that we could be blessed, so that we might become the righteousness of God. No one can curse what God has blessed.
  • Marilin on Galatians 3:20 - 11 years ago
    The mediator came up with the promised seed Christ Jesus in mind to be that mediator. Since Jesus was basically going to be the very God in flesh,... the point had to be made That God is One so therefore Jesus is not going to be a mediator in the truest sense of the word as he was not going to be a third person between man and God. But God working out His mystery of salvation through Jesus Christ who was the expressed image/flesh that house the spirit of God cannot separate the spirit of God from God.
  • Austyn on Galatians 3 - 11 years ago
    Verse 28 makes it clear that, no one has anything over anybody else. Praise God that we are all one in His Son Jesus Christ!
  • Peace williams on Galatians 3 - 11 years ago
    I think Paul�s expostulation with Peter of justification of faith, teaches me to obey the truth, not to be like foolish Galatians.
  • Clint on Galatians 3 - 11 years ago
    Henry, God won�t change nor stop hating sin. He has told us in Romans 1 that gays and lesbians will not be in heaven! Where do you get your leaven from? A gay and lesbian church, which should not be God�s!
