Wesley's Notes for Galatians 3:14


3:14 That the blessing of Abraham - The blessing promised to him. Might come on the gentiles - Also. That we - Who believe, whether Jews or gentiles. Might receive the promise of the Spirit - Which includes all the other promises. Through faith - Not by works; for faith looks wholly to the promise.


People's Bible Notes for Galatians 3:14


Ga 3:14 That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ. Christ took the curse upon himself that we might be blessed with the believing Abraham (Ga 3:6). Hence Gentiles who believe have the promise of justification, and of the Spirit. Compare Ga 3:2,5. That we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith. There it is shown that the Spirit came by the faith, rather than by the law.

    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

    To Bruce - I was baptized in Jesus' name in '73 and I speak in tongues. It's wonderful, isn't it.

    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.

    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
