BONDWOMAN OR FREEWOMAN
Brothers, I will teach to you today the truth of God's Holy Word, the gospel of Christ Jesus.
All that we need do in this hour is to look at our own countries, and see that almost all of us are experiencing the truth of the following verses of scripture.
Please see that Paul tell us here that we who are saved are born of the lineage of Abraham, and Sarah the freewoman. We are born of promise, the promise of God to Abraham. We who know Jesus as Lord and Savior are free. We will not be in bondage as are the children of Agar the bondwoman.
Read these words and know why we are hated by all middle eastern countries. They persecute us, and desire to kill us Christians and Jews because we are free, and are the children of promise from God. They on the other hand are born into bondage from the bondwoman Agar, and her son Ishmael.
Galatians 4:22 For it is written, that Abraham had two sons, the one by a bondmaid, the other by a freewoman.
Abrahams two sons, Ishmael son of the bondmaid Hagar, and Issac son of the freewoman Sarah who was Abrahams wife.
Galatians 4:23 But he who was of the bondwoman was born after the flesh; but he of the freewoman was by promise.
Ishmael son of Hagar was born after the flesh as Abrahams seed. But, Issac the son of Sarah who was promised by God to Abraham was the son of promise.
Brothers, those who seek to kill us in this day are the children of the flesh, and not of promise as we who know God the Father, and Jesus our Lord and Savior. They are of flesh, of the bondwoman, and are lost until they accept Jesus.
Galatians 4:24 Which things are an allegory: for these are the two covenants; the one from the mount Sinai, which gendereth to bondage, which is Ishmael.
Galatians 4:25 For this Agar is mount Sinai in Arabia, and answereth to Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with her children.
The children of Hagar the bondwoman are of Egypt, Syria, Turkey, Irac, Iran, India, Africa, and other areas of what we know today as the Middle East.
Galatians 4:26 But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all.
Galatians 4:27 For it is written, Rejoice, thou barren that bearest not; break forth and cry, thou that travailest not: for the desolate hath many more children than she which hath an husband.
Brothers, the desolate has many more children than does Abraham, and Sarah. We Christians of Abrahams lineage are few compared to the lost of this world who seek to destroy us.
But, Jerusalem, and Israel are free having been born of the freewoman Sarah and her husband Abraham. We are told here that Sarah is the mother of us all who are saved just as Abraham is the father of us who know Jesus as our Lord and Savour.
The desolate has many more children than she which has a husband.
Here we are told that the children of the bondwoman who are not only from those Middle Eastern Countries listed above, but also are made up of every non believer of Jesus, as the only living Son of God, or all of the lost of this present day. Verse 27 above tells us that the desolate or those which I have just discussed. Their are many more of them who are lost than we who are saved. We are the adopted children into the lineage of Abraham and the freewoman Sarah.
Galatians 4:28 Now we, brethren, as Isaac was, are the children of promise.
Praise God! God calls us the Sons of God because we are now joint heirs with Jesus. We have not only been adopted into the lineage of Abraham, but also the lineage of God himself.
Galatians 4:29 But as then he that was born after the flesh persecuted him that was born after the Spirit, even so it is now.
Brothers, do not be surprised that the world who is under the bondage of the bondwoman, has and will persecute, hate and kill us Christians of today. God's Holy Word tells us here in verse 29 that, we as our Jewish friends who are the chosen of God, are going to be persecuted until Jesus appears to receive us unto himself. Just as the Jewish people have been and are being persecuted by the heathen so to are we Christians in this day. The heathen children of the bondwoman draw no distinction in their hatred for us.
Galatians 4:30 Nevertheless what saith the scripture? Cast out the bondwoman and her son: for the son of the bondwoman shall not be heir with the son of the freewoman.
Brothers, here the scripture tells us plainly that those of the bondwoman, and the lost of this day are cast out. Unless the lost of this day, and the children of the bondwoman, accept Jesus Christ they are cast out from among us the children of promise.
Just as we who were lost are now saved by grace through faith in Jesus as the only living Son of God. Those who are now lost, and those who are born of the lineage of the bondwoman will be saved if, and only if they accept Jesus as we did. Jesus is their only hope.
Galatians 4:31 So then, brethren, we are not children of the bondwoman, but of the freewoman.
So pray for the lost of this world which includes the children of the bondwoman who not only are alive today in the Middle East, but are scattered around the earth. The Word of God tells us here that the children of the bondwoman are many more than us who are born of promise.
Pray with me for those lost that they will accept, and know the truth of Jesus Christ before it is too late.
God Bless you my fellow children of promise,
