GOD'S COVENANT, LESSON #6
Brothers, this is the final lesson and summary on God's Covenants with us his children.
Galatians 3:13 Christ 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:
Galatians 3:14 That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.
Galatians 3:21 Is the law then against the promises of God? God forbid: for if there had been a law given which could have given life, verily righteousness should have been by the law.
If it were possible for us to have been saved by the law, (the Ten Commandments given to Moses by God), then would righteousness have come to us from the law and it would not have been nessasary for Jesus to have come and died for our iniquites that we would be made righteous by grace through faith in Him. vs.3:21
Jesus was made a curse for us by taking our sins to the cross and dieing for us. Not only our sins, but also our diseases and sicknesses and all suffering, which is a curse from satin. vs.3:13
The blessings of Abraham are come onto the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; so that we would receive the promise of the Holy Spirit by our faith. Remember that he the Holy Spirit is to be our teacher concerning ALL things.
We are still to keep the Ten Commandments even though Jesus has saved us unto righteousness. But, because we will fall short of keeping these Ten Commandments during our life time. We are forgiven of these sins because Jesus has made us righteous in God's eyes. Praise God!
Galatians 3:22 But the scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe.
Galatians 3:23 But before faith came, we were kept under the law, shut up unto the faith which should afterwards be revealed.
Galatians 3:24 Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith.
Galatians 3:25 But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster.
Galatians 3:26 For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.
Galatians 3:27 For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.
Galatians 3:28 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 3:29 And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.
Brothers, In the above 8 verses of Galatians is a powerful promise from God to us his children. Faith of Jesus Christ to us who believe hath freed us from ALL sins.
Before faith came we were shut off from God because of our sins. We are now the children of God by faith and no longer in need of a school master. The Holy Spirit is now our teacher. We are now the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. We have been baptized into Christ and have put on Christ. No longer are there Jew nor Greek nor Gentile, nor bond nor free, nor male or female, but rather we are ALL one in Christ Jesus our Lord and Savior.
Vs 29 says that if you are Christ's then you are Abraham's seed, and are heirs according to the promise made to Abraham by God. Brothers, Abraham's promise is ours. We have his blessings for a thousand generations, both us and our children just as Abraham and his children and their seed, who we are, walks in God's blessings even now.
Luke 4:14 And Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit into Galilee: and there went out a fame of him through all the region round about.
Jesus gave us the power of the Holy Spirit of God.
Ephesians 2:11 Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by that which is called the Circumcision in the flesh made by hands;
Ephesians 2:12 That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world:
Ephesians 2:13 But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ.
Ephesians 2:14 For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us;
Ephesians 2:15 Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace;
Ephesians 2:16 And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby:
Ephesians 2:17 And came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh.
Ephesians 2:18 For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father.
Ephesians 2:19 Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God;
Praise God! We are no longer strangers to God but rather are made of the household of God fellow citizens and saints. That middle wall that seperated us from the Jews and us both from God has been torn down by Jesus Christ. Praise God! We are no longer divided.
Acts 10:34 Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons:
Acts 10:35 But in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with him.
Acts 10:36 The word which God sent unto the children of Israel, preaching peace by Jesus Christ: (he is Lord of all:)
Acts 10:37 That word, I say, ye know, which was published throughout all Judaea, and began from Galilee, after the baptism which John preached;
Acts 10:38 How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.
God is with us who by faith know Jesus as our Lord and Savior. Everyone in every nation on this earth who loves Jesus and knows Him, and works righteousness is accepted by God, for God is no respector of persons. He does not care who you where or where you came from. He only cares that you have accepted Jesus and are trying every day to walk as Jesus walked.
Acts 10:39 And we are witnesses of all things which he did both in the land of the Jews, and in Jerusalem; whom they slew and hanged on a tree:
Acts 10:40 Him God raised up the third day, and shewed him openly;
Acts 10:41 Not to all the people, but unto witnesses chosen before God, even to us, who did eat and drink with him after he rose from the dead.
God's Holy Word tells us that not all people of this earth know or will know Jesus. God's very own Holy Spirit will bring conviction to the lost. Remember brothers when we were told by Jesus numerous times in the new testament that, "He who hath ears let him hear". It will be up to the lost to receive that conviction for their sins, and accept Jesus by faith.
Brothers, we are saved by the blood of Jesus and have ears if we take them. He tells us also that the lost of this world can not hear us because they did not hear him. Only by conviction of the Holy Spirit that they are condemed already, and in need of a savior, and then by grace through faith believe upon the name of Jesus, can they ever hear what we say or what God says to them. Pray for the lost of this world now more than at any other time in your life because the soon appearing of Jesus is so very close. Also pray that our brothers will not grow dull of hearing, but rather will hear what the Holy Spirit of God says unto them.
I know that you have heard the world say that if God was a God of love how could he condemn anyone to Hell. Brothers, God has never nor will he ever condemn any person to Hell. The Holy Bible tells us that if we do not believe in Jesus then we have condemned ourselves already. The lost condemn themselves. God made Hell for Satin and the fallen angels, not for men. But we have choices just as Adam and Eve had choices, and if we choose not to serve God our creator, then we have chosen to serve Satin, and Hell is were he will spend eternity, and the lost will spend eternity there with him. Because they chose not to believe in Jesus Christ the only begotten Son of God, and to be made righteous by the death, burial, and resurection of Jesus who now sits at the right hand of God. It is Jesus who will judge the world. God tells us that because Jesus died for man then it is Jesus who will judge men from that time foreward.
Acts 10:42 And he commanded us to preach unto the people, and to testify that it is he which was ordained of God to be the Judge of quick and dead.
Acts 10:43 To him give all the prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins.
Acts 10:44 While Peter yet spake these words, the Holy Ghost fell on all them which heard the word.
Brothers, as we speak the words as Peter did here the Holy Ghost will fall upon ALL of those who hear the word of God spoken. But, it will be up to those who the Holy Ghost falls upon to be convicted of their sins. It will not be our fault if they do not receive Jesus as Lord and Savior. However, it will be on us if we do not witness to them. We will be judged for our works. Works do not save us, but we are given a burden for the lost, and will be rewarded for our work in spreading the truth of Jesus Christ the Son of God. Amen.
Hebrews 1:8 But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom.
Hebrews 1:9 Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.
Hebrews 1:10 And, Thou, Lord, in the beginning hast laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of thine hands:
Hebrews 1:11 They shall perish; but thou remainest; and they all shall wax old as doth a garment;
Hebrews 1:12 And as a vesture shalt thou fold them up, and they shall be changed: but thou art the same, and thy years shall not fail.
Brothers, we know that this earth shall pass away because the Bible tells us so. But, God will never change he will stay the same forever, and ever through out all eternity. So to will God's Covenant's, and Promises to us. We are made the children of God, and are grafted into Jesus our vine. Branches we are in God's vineyard, and here on earth are we to bear much fruit. We will live forever with God, and our Lord Jesus even to see the earth, and heavens pass away.
These promises of the six lessons are ours. These are not all of the promises that God, and Jesus have given us. We are Abraham's seed. God's blessings are upon us if we take them, and righteously walk in his word through this life serving Jesus Christ in all that we do. We are to walk righteously, and we are to hate sin. Praise God. Amen.
God bless, you my brothers
