- King James Bible "Authorized Version", Cambridge Edition
6:17 From henceforth let none trouble me - By quarrels and disputes. For I bear - And afflictions should not be added to the afflicted. In my body the marks of the Lord Jesus - The scars, marks, and brands of my sufferings for Him.
Ga 6:17 From henceforth let no man trouble me. Dispute my apostolic authority. I bear in my body the marks of our Lord Jesus. He bore on his body too many evidence of what he had suffered for Christ. As slaves were often branded by their master's name, so he had the brand of Christ upon him in his scars. Compare 2Co 11:24,25.

I asked The Lord what this verse meant. He said that Paul meant his physical situation but that as the Bible is a spiritual book, everlasting, all written in it must be read spiritually. He said that in our times marks of the Lord Jesus represents the suffering we undergo for them AND the Holy spirit. To be exact; as the Holy Spirit is our comforter, marks of the Lord Jesus represents the HEALED wounds of our suffering for Him. May you all be blessed and always remain in Christ. Jesus is Lord.

Literary, what Apostle Paul meant here is his physical in capacities, that is, the physical mark he has bore because of Christ (Gal 4:13). Paul had this chronic eye problem when the light from heaven flashed his eyes., and as human he was forced to say "hence forth let no man trouble me for I bear the mark of the Lord in "my body". " It was more of likened to when we have so suffered for something and somebody is coming to frustrate the effort. We can angrily say , please don't disturb me for I have come a long way and have suffered a lot to get here. "Kolawole oludare stephen"

Because I confessed Jesus as my Lord and Savior, the Spirit of God Almighty lives within me. Since Jesus, my Savior has overcome this world, I, her follower have also overcome the world. By His grace, I have authority to overcome all the power of the darkness or the enemy in the mighty name of Jesus.

As a child of God and follower of Jesus Christ, no one has the right to trouble or disturb me.
