Discussion for Galatians 4:4

  • The fulness of time came when the 700 years had expired, as scripture said. God had divorced The Nation Israel around 722 BC he could not remarry Israel for 10 generations. A generation, according to Psalm 90:10 3 score plus 10, masking it 70 years. Jesus came to Israel when the 700 years had expired.
  • Timothy Wayne George for verse 4
    Jesus was born is the fulness of time of a woman, the Virgin Mary as promised in Gen. 3:15, and He was subject to the Law. Thank God for Jesus, for He did not come to abolish the Law, but He fulfilled it, thereby becoming the Lamb of God which takes away the sins of the world. Until Jesus came, we were under the tutors, but now we are under grace. The two sons of Abraham represent two covenants. The first covenant is the Law, and the second covenant which is of promise, shed in His blood, is of grace. If we could be saved by keeping the Law, then Jesus Christ died in vain, but by the works of the Law shall no flesh be justified in His sight. We are saved by grace, through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ which is a gift, not of works, less any man should boast. Jesus said ye shall know the Truth, and the Truth will set you free. Jesus prayed in John 17:17 Sanctify them by thy Truth.
    So brothers and sisters, don't try to be saved keeping the Law, for it is only by faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, that we can be justified in His presence. As Paul told the Galatians have I become your enemy because I tell you the truth? Every Pastor should have that verse in his study to remind him of the Truth of the Word of God, and why we must be messengers to bear that Truth. It is not us they hate, but the Truth. Nevertheless, we must understand that the servant is no greater, than the Master, as Jesus said they hated Me, and they will hate you. May the Lord bless you richly my beloved.
