I heard, “The door is now opened unto you!”
Yes, Gleanings from The Book of Galatians.
Yesterday we saw that The Law was our ‘schoolmaster’ to bring us to Christ. Now that we are in Christ, we are no longer to be governed by the administration of The Law, but we are to live by faith in Christ Jesus.
Then the apostle opens up something beautiful in the following verses;
“For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus,” Galatians 3:26.
Oh, as Gentiles we are now sons of God by faith in Christ Jesus. We were never called through The Law, we were never given The Law in the first place, it was given to the Jews and not the Gentiles.
When we fall into the bondage of trying to earn God’s goodness through The Law, we are outrightly denying our sonship through faith in Christ Jesus.
The devil is good at understanding these kind of things, more than we know. We give him legal rights to lay curses on us when we go back to put ourselves under a system we were never called under.
Before the introduction of Grace and Faith in Christ, we could not dare be called sons of God, as Gentiles. But glory to The Son of God, today we are admitted into the Covenant through The Grace of God.
Now we can boldly declare — by Faith in Christ — that we are The Sons of God with power.
“For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ,” Galatians 3:27.
Incredible, the moment we receive Jesus, we are baptized into Him. We put on Christ. We become hidden in Him.
When God sees us today, He sees Christ. He sees the beauty of His Son reflecting from us.
This why the groom can boldly say to us;
“Thou art all fair, my love; there is no spot in thee,” Song of Solomon 4:7.
Indeed there can be no spot in us, for we are covered in The Garments of Salvation. We are covered with The Robe of Righteousness. O how we ought to rejoice!
“I will greatly rejoice in the LORD, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for he hath clothed me with the garments of salvation, he hath covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decketh himself with ornaments, and as a bride adorneth herself with her jewels,” Isaiah 61:10.
“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,” Galatians 3:28.
Wow, whether you are white, you are my beloved brother. Though you may be red, you are my beloved sister. Though you may be black it still does not change a thing, we are absolutely one in Christ.
Please stop saying ‘Black Lives Matter’ — all lives matter. We are all one in Christ.
That is a language of division. There is no bond nor free, there is no male nor female — for we are all one in Christ Jesus.
I love you dearly my reader, I hope you love me too, for we cannot be separated in Christ.
There is no difference between the Jew and the Greek. There are no special people in the eyes of God, again, since the introduction of the death of The Son. We are all accepted and made equal in Christ.
Here Jesus is the only one special, only Jesus reigns here and not a particular race of people.
There is nothing again as a special seed of Abraham. No nation has a separate heritage from the one covenant of Abraham we are all beneficiaries from.
There is nothing as — this people are the special and real seed of Abraham — we all are the seed of Abraham in Christ;
“And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise,” Galatians 3:29.
See you tomorrow….
In an encounter with The LORD I saw someone struggling to open a door. He was using his strength to open this door, but it wasn’t easy for him.
Then I heard The LORD say to him, “Stop!” And when he did, I saw the door slowly open by itself.
“And they said among themselves, Who shall roll us away the stone from the door of the sepulchre? And when they looked, they saw that the stone was rolled away: for it was very great,” Mark 16:3-4.
“I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name,” Revelation 3:8.
Then The LORD said, “I understand the greatness of what lies ahead of you. I know your struggles, I AM acquainted with your sufferings.
I AM not angry with you, for I know you have little strength, but you have held unto My Word.
I say to you now My Child, stop the self-pity! Stop the struggle and keep looking to Me.
Do not turn back. The great stone you see before you is now being rolled away.
The door is now opened unto you My Child. Go forward with Faith and Hope in Me.”
