Wesley's Notes for Galatians 3:13


3:13 Christ - Christ alone. The abruptness of the sentence shows an holy indignation at those who reject so great a blessing. Hath redeemed us - Whether Jews or gentiles, at an high price. From the curse of the law - The curse of God, which the law denounces against all transgressors of it. Being made a curse for us - Taking the curse upon himself, that we might be delivered from it, willingly submitting to that death which the law pronounces peculiarly accursed. #Deu 21:23|.

    just because you speak in tounges does not mean you have the holy ghost. The holy ghost or spirit lead you and guide you in all truth

    Tongues, speaking in a foreign language, is a sign to unbelievers, not believers.

    To Bruce - I was baptized in Jesus' name in '73 and I speak in tongues. It's wonderful, isn't it.
  • Bruce
    Irene: The Bible is "The Word"of God. The Word is Jesus! The Bread of Life! The One "you" need "Faith" in for Salvation. Only by The Blood of The Lamb is there Salvation. His sacrificed paid it all! Call on Him while He is near! Tomorrow May be too late! Eternity's coming! He will change your life,you will speak with a new tongue. The world ( lost people) will not understand! "The Beginning"----?
  • Irene123
    There was a comment on the back pgs. of this chapter about the distinction between 'faith' and 'the faith', but it wasn't completely followed through. In the book of James he talks a lot about 'faith'; this is the faith we have, our belief in God and His Word - it's a verb. Jude speaks of 'the faith ' once delivered to the saints - this is a noun. 'The faith' is the word of God, the Bible.
  • Bruce
    For by grace are we saved through faith--.Ephesians 2:8/But without faith it is impossible to please him:--.Hebrews11:6/No light switch need that takes too long. "YOU" will know your a lost sinner,when The Father calls:John6:44, no special words needed,He sees your Heart. Just ask forgiveness:1John 1:9./ You will be Baptized with the Holy Ghost and Fire:Matthew 3:11/ you will know:2Corinthians5:17
