The Spirit OR the Letter, God’s Law OR Man’s? Oh Israel, wake up! (Galatians 3)
In this Chapter, Paul is directing his commentary to the followers of the Torah, those following Judaism (the Word of God plus that of Rabbi’s and Sages) whom believed they were descendants of Abraham. Paul clearly defines here that God made a specific distinction which speaks of the spirit of adoption (not of genealogy). Since Jesus fulfilled every prophecy in his life and through his death, he fulfilled the law on behalf of all those who would Believe upon him, salvation then relies upon spirit belief, not doctrinal law. God designed the words of the Bible in its precise vernacular and meaning to point to Jesus & to point out this critical and crucial hinge pin. The hidden truth in full view. The inherent bloodline now flows through the vine of the spirit of belief (those under Grace are grafted in); through Faith!
The Jewish nation by creed needs to receive this truth. The apple of God’s eye which is blinded by the trees of the grove it resides in! Our Jewish Brothers and Sisters are those sheep that have stubbornly begrudged the nudging of Spirit! Without the Holy Spirit baptismal faith and it’s alignment with Christ, No Heaven nor Salvation is possible; no inheritance of Abraham is entitled to the illegitimate. The Messianic movement into this enlightened awakening is embarking upon the dawning of a new day, Glory to God for the remnant! The bridegroom is ready and there is no time to tarry! God wishes that none would perish! God’s word stated all along to follow the law, keepeth the Law, when Jesus transitioned into Chist-hood, he being the living word made the Law under His subjection to save our souls! is now the fulfillment of the written word! It is He, the bridegroom which cometh!
Abba Father, pour out your Holy Spirit upon the proud and the resistant, the nay sayers and the misguided. Let us swiftly bring the Gospel to those whom you lead us toward. Grant us the Grace & Divinely appointed opportunities to deliver words spoken of the Spirit. Let it go forward like a wellspring opened to dry land, let it quench the depths of all questioning, let the residue of deception be washed away in the renewal of hearts as they are carried toward You. In Jesus Mighty Name AMEN!

Galatians 3:1-18 http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Galatians+3%3A1-18&version=KJVKing James Version (KJV) Galatians 3
1O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that ye should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been evidently set forth, crucified among you? 2This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith? 3Are ye so foolish? having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh? 4Have ye suffered so many things in vain? if it be yet in vain. 5He therefore that ministereth to you the Spirit, and worketh miracles among you, doeth he it by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith? 6Even as Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness. 7Know ye therefore that they which are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham. 8And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the heathen through faith, preached before the gospel unto Abraham, saying, In thee shall all nations be blessed. 9So then they which be of faith are blessed with faithful Abraham. 10For 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. 11But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is evident: for, The just shall live by faith. 12And the law is not of faith: but, The man that doeth them shall live in them. 13Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree: 14That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith. 15Brethren, I speak after the manner of men; Though it be but a man's covenant, yet if it be confirmed, no man disannulleth, or addeth thereto. 16Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ. 17And this I say, that the covenant, that was confirmed before of God in Christ, the law, which was four hundred and thirty years after, cannot disannul, that it should make the promise of none effect. 18For if the inheritance be of the law, it is no more of promise: but God gave it to Abraham by promise.
John 8:32-33King James Version (KJV)
32And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
33They answered him, We be Abraham's seed, and were never in bondage to any man: how sayest thou, Ye shall be made free?
34Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin.
35And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: but the Son abideth ever.
36If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.
37I know that ye are Abraham's seed; but ye seek to kill me, because my word hath no place in you.
Deuteronomy 27: 26Cursed be he that confirmeth not all the words of this law to do them. And all the people shall say, Amen.
John 8:32-33King James Version (KJV) 32And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. 33They answered him, We be Abraham's seed, and were never in bondage to any man: how sayest thou, Ye shall be made free? 34Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin. 35And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: but the Son abideth ever. 36If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed. 37I know that ye are Abraham's seed; but ye seek to kill me, because my word hath no place in you.
