BONDWOMAN OR FREEWOMAN
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, Agar 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.
Agar 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.
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 Agar.
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, Irak, 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.
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. Galatians 4-27.
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 4:27 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.
Brothers, we are the children of promise, just as Isaac the son of Abraham and Sarah was. 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 Galatians 4:29 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.
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 will be cast out. Unless the lost of this day, and the children of the bondwoman, accept Jesus Christ our risen savour as the Son of God, then they will be cast out and will never be with us in Heaven.
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 free.
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 they are many more than us who are saved and born of the freewoman, our Jewish brothers.
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 brothers,
