RETURNING TO NOTHINGNESS

‘You observe days and months and seasons and years. I am afraid for you, lest I have labored for you in vain.’  Galatians 4:10-11 (NKJV)   It is possible to labor in vain. It is possible that after an heir has entered his inheritance, he turns again and goes back into slavery. They say that by some strange desire, a horse that is rescued from a burning building would at the first opportunity, want to rush back into the same building, which is still on fire. It’s weird but many heirs have voluntarily returned back to slavery. This was...

PROCESS TO HEIRSHIP

‘…God sent forth His Son… to redeem those who were under the law, that we might receive the adoption as sons. And because you are sons, God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son into your hearts, crying out, “Abba, Father!” Therefore you are no longer a slave but a son, and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.’  Galatians 4:4-7 (NKJV)   Heirship is not a title; it’s a position in the kingdom of God and it is not a position for everybody and not everybody who says ‘am a heir in the kingdom’,...

THE PROCESS OF TRANSLATION

‘For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus. For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ.’  Galatians 3:26-27 (NKJV) So how does the justified life happen in practice and how does faith free us from the curse of the law? Simple. We who have believed in the atoning work of Christ through His death, resurrection and ascension (each of these having a role to play in the final package of justification); we have been baptized into the very life of God through Christ. We have entered into the pool...

THE BEAUTY OF THE LAW

‘Is the law then against the promises of God? Certainly not! For if there had been a law given which could have given life, truly righteousness would have been by the law. But the Scripture has confined all under sin, that the promise by faith in Jesus Christ might be given to those who believe. But before faith came, we were kept under guard by the law, kept for the faith which would afterward be revealed.’  Galatians 3:21-23 (NKJV)   This is so beautiful. The law in itself is not bad. Indeed, the law was given so that those...

FREE FROM THE CURSE

‘For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse; for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who does not continue in all things which are written in the book of the law, to do them.” But that no one is justified by the law in the sight of God is evident, for “the just shall live by faith.”’  Galatians 3:10-11 (NKJV)   Praise God for delivering us from the curse of the law, the curse under which the whole world squirms under right now. The curse simply put, is the law of the...
