    John 5:29 written in red, eliminates the dreamed up rapture. A general resurrection is spoken of here.

    Just heard someone quote Galatians Chapter 6, verse 7 God bless America! Not make America great again, we are great.

    A snowball effect. Peter was swayed by the Jews sent by James: When out of fear of offending the Jews from Jerusalem, Peter went back to following Jewish traditions. This, sent a message to the Jewish Christians in Galatia and they followed suit in separating themselves making the Gentile Christians 2nd class. Undermining the gospel itself by making justification depend on works not faith.

    Peter was preaching to the Jews of the laws and a different way to the gentiles, Paul faced him on that saying we walk in faith in Christ not by the laws, Christ fulfilled the laws when he was crucified on the cross, we do not continue a sinful life style since we died with him, we walk in faith, and we speak the truth of the gospel, those are God's words. If we followed mans word we'd all perish
  • Brianna vs. 11-14
    I think those verses helps us to see that we can't allow other's to interfere with a course we know to be right. Peter was fellow-shipping with the Gentile Christians, but because the Jewish Christians didn't approve of it he stopped. Thus Paul's rebuke. Peer pressure can be strong. However, we need to stick to our morals, despite public opinion.

    Amen! well said

    Gal, 2:20 This scripture speaks to my soul. It clearly states that even while in this fleshly body God will provide me with what I need to walk in the spirit if I allow Christ to live in me.Will it be easy? no but it will make life so much more better knowing that he lives in me and he guides me and he died for me so that I may live.

    Verse 11-13~Peter showed prejudice when he was around certain men. We must not give into peer pressure and must work hard to put away any prejudice.
  • Kurt Chappell
    The disciples were tough, and hardy.We see from great ease, behavior non-agreeable. God corrects from love and so should we. Paul loved Peter, all the others,
  • A disciple
    " continued to haunt the church for many years..?" Birds of a feather flock together! If the devil can find a weak brother not watching and not filling his house with God, then he will come in and bring seven more worse than himself. And anyone who is likewise bored with hearing any more of the conviction and sound teaching of the Spirit, deserves the same. Take heed lest any man deceive you.
  • Eutychus a saint
    vs1.When Paul, along with Titus, Barnabas (and Luke?) went to Jerusalem about the Jew/Gentile/Church question...the Jews withstood Paul. And while the question was settled for all time, at that time, it continued to haunt the church for many years, even leading to Paul's death. And later, in Revelation chapters 2:9, and 3:9, we see the problem still exists. And even to this day, it remains.
  • Jimmy a disciple of Jesus
    Paul was just addressing the situation face on before it grew out of control and lead to more divisions and separations,false doctrines in the body of Christ and the Truth! Sometimes harsh but straight to the point.

  • A disciple
    Daniel; I haven't looked on this post for a while, and would like now to follow up with you. Please don't be offended; but 3.5 years is does not make the same as 40 years; but our boasting is entirely in the Lord's mercy! Paul was right in his judgment, WITHOUT RESPECT OF PERSONS, for Peter was to be condemned in that he feared what the Jews would think, and led others by example of hypocrisy.
  • Janet
    Daniel I understand what you are saying but I don't agree with you totally and I do not agree with you to compare Paul and Peter on a platform like this someone young in faith can get confused. . The important thing is that Peter needed to be corrected. How should Paul have done when others joined Peter to do the same? Or don't you think he should be corrected?
  • Spenner
    It is such a wonderful experience to be Crucified with Christ.In 2004 on the day Pentecost was celebrated I was rebaptized in the name of Jesus (Romans 6:3-8;Acts 2:38).This was the result of revelation.Sadly many are only baptised in Jesus' titles(Matt 28:19)and not his Name.The Lord Jesus is the head of the church why is his name not used in Baptism?
  • Brother Daniel FC
    To a Disciple. Don’t get me wrong: I love Ap. Paul: I just disagree of how he treats Ap. Peter, who is equally dear to me. His attitude of a learned man, a Pharisee who studied at the feet of Gamaliel, towards a simple fisherman, strikes me as arrogance. I don’t think Jesus would agree with that. And that is not all… so, talk to me Disciple!
  • Brother Daniel FC
    To a Disciple. No, I am not hasty, and it doesn’t take special revelation to see where Ap. Paul comes from; whence his behavior. Read the whole letter to Galatians, and you will understand better. Accusing your fellow worker, who was trained by Jesus for 3.5 years, a faithful man, full of the Holy Spirit, of hypocrisy, and cursing the people who disagree with you; is hardly Christian behavior.
  • A disciple
    Daniel; You are too hasty in your speech and sadly lacking in understanding and respect for things much higher than you! Are you so likewise endowed with a calling and wisdom and knowledge by revelation of the Lord Jesus Christ? And are you likewise travelling through foreign Countries risking your life to preach the Glad Tidings under constant persecution, slander, and betrayals? Why scrutinize?
  • Brother Daniel FC
    In verse 8, Apostle Paul's modesty leaves much to be desired: - ... he that wrought wrought EFFECTUALLY in Peter - versus -the same was MIGHTY in me. - I guess Ap. Paul doesn't know about the Day of Pentecost nor about the thousands that accepted Christ as the result of Ap. Peter's preaching. See Acts Ch. 2. Three thousand people turned to Jesus: Now, that's MIGHTY.

    "For faith comes by hearing the word of God"
  • David
    What l think is not important, so when you ask my thoughts you ask of Christ's gospel witch is written on your heart. Knowing all flesh is sinful, my human ideals are unrighteous as no one is completely holy in the flesh. Ask the lord thy God ruler of heaven these things that you seek, thus total truth be shown in light, a honest revelation added unto your spirit.
  • Tim
    I am starting to study figures of speech that are used in the Bible. It is helping me tremendously to under stand what I am reading. No one ever taught me a thing about figures when involved with churches. But I find that without a basic understanding of figures of speech, the Word of God becomes much more difficult. For example: anaphora in Ephesians 6:12.
  • Irene123
    To Bro. Daniel FC on Gal. ch. 2 - I answered your question about the flood-time 'laws' 3 wks. ago. I'm not one to debate God's word. There's nothing wrong with that; I just don't do it.
  • Bro. Daniel FC
    To: Irene 123 Part 1 Are you saying that God destroyed the antediluvians in spite of the fact that they had no laws to guide them in righteousness? Is God unfair? Sin is the transgression of the law 1Jn. 3:4, and the wages of sin is death Rom. 6:23.
  • Bro. Daniel FC
    Part 2
    Why would Cain and Abel bring sacrifices, unless God instructed them to? Most likely the first family received other instructions/laws. Adam and Eve were commanded not to eat from a certain tree, under the death penalty. They disobeyed and sin entered into the world. That is why Christ had to die, to atone for their and our sins.
  • BSP
    Verse 21 brings out a good point. If righteousness is by the Law alone, then Christ died for nothing.
  • BSP
    In verses 11 through 13 Peter was counseled publicly, but he humbly accepted it. It takes humility in order to accept counsel and to apply it.
  • Lonnie Maddox Sr
    Galatians Remind me we should follow Christ .
  • Lilian
    Jesus have come to give us life in abundance. We are saved by his grace as God's grace are sufficient enough for us to be saved. Our Faith comes only by hearing the word of God as God's words are powerful to meditate than prayers. Jesus is the bread of life and the light of the world He who believes in him will not be perish but have an everlasting life. What a promising God and what a faithful Father to his words given for us. Jesus made everything new our job now is to believe in him, follow him and obey his words. He who loves him will keep his commandments. Thanks to Jesus for his blood that shed for us. Through his precious blood only our sins are washed away, our ungodly things are cleansed. We need only to trust Jesus and live like him until rapture. I will keep praising God and thank him for he is worthy to be praised. Amen
