People's Bible Notes for Galatians 1:18


Ga 1:18 Then, after three years I went up to Jerusalem. Three years after conversion. This journey to Jerusalem, hurried by persecution at Damascus (2Co 11:32), was probably A.D. 40. To see Peter. He had probably never met him before. He desired to form his acquaintance and counsel over their great work. He then remained fifteen days, not long enough to have been taught the gospel by Peter, if that had been his object.

    GALATIANS 1:10 for do I now persuade men or GOD or do I seek to please men for if I yet pleased men I should not be the servant of GOD --1:11-- but I certify you brethren that the gospel which was preached unto me is not after men 1 THESSALONIANS 2:4 but as we were allowed of GOD to be put in trust with the gospel even so we speak not as pleasing men but GOD which trieth our hearts

    Verse 12: Paul acknowledged that the good news that he was preaching was not from men but was of divine origin.

    Galatians 1:15 “But when it pleased God, who separated me from my mother's womb, and called me by his grace,”

    Our mothers womb we must get separated from are the false concepts, fables, all religious traditions that emphasizes man instead of Jesus the Christ.

    Cleanliness is next to godliness this is a lie. God will save a person covered in filthy!!!

    Lu2677; Hi! I haven't seen you posting for a while; I hope you are well! I was just reading over our discussion from back in June: the way this format is set up sometimes leaves you in a bit of a time warp, and the discussion can get thrown off the rails. I am very grateful however that we have this; and hope that it is a blessing to many. The Lord bless you and keep you, and let His face shine!

    If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book. And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life... Rev. 22:18,19
