  • Sarah, a very young Follower
    Galatians 4:16.. It is amazing how true this is. I just want to emphasize that one.
  • Linda
    I use that verse now much more often than I did while growing up. It surely seems that people can make it seem that way.
  • Steve morrow
    GALATIANS 4:16 am I therefore become your enemy because I tell you the truth PSALM 139:20 for they speak against thee wickedly and thine enemies take thy name in vain --139:21-- do not I hate them O LORD that hate thee and am not I grieved with those that rise up against thee --139:22-- I hate them with perfect hatred I count them my enemies
  • John
    Christ, the result of our ministry, written not with ink but with the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts.
    4 Such confidence we have through Christ before God. 5 Not that we are competent in ourselves to claim anything for ourselves, but our competence comes from God.
  • John
    3 Are we beginning to commend ourselves again? Or do we need, like some people, letters of recommendation to you or from you? 2 You yourselves are our letter, written on our hearts, known and read by everyone. 3 You show that you are a letter from Christ, the result of our ministry, written not with ink but with the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts.

    GALATIANS 4:5 to redeem them that were under the law --- THAT WE MIGHT RECEIVE THAT ADOPTION OF SONS --4:6--and because you are sons GOD hath sent forth the spirit of HIS SON into your hearts crying ABBA FATHER EPHESIANS 1:5 HAVING PREDESTINATED US UNTO THE ADOPTION OF CHILDREN BY JESUS CHRIST TO HIMSELF *** ACCORDING TO THE GOOD PLEASURE OF HIS WILL ***
  • Emmanuel1234
    As a christian we should always follow Christ our savior because we are free children of God. We should never follow the slave children path which means we should not follow the anti- Christ people, we should try and help them to be Christians so that they can receive the gift we are receiving as a child of God.

    By faith isaac was formed in Sarah,NOW Christ is gonna be formed in us by faith, its like a spritual pregnancy But in the spritual realm the fetus is th H.G.Y He always refers to himself as the son of man,When a woman is pregnant she has the substance of things hoped for the EVIDENCE of things not seen which is the fetus,but now the fetus is the H.G.That which is born of the SPIRIT IS SPIRIT GBU.
  • Maria Murphy
    Verse 10 you are busy observing times and season's I fear for you what was he meaning
  • Alex
    We are not the true heirs its Christ that is the only true heir but we can be a JOINT HEIR if we birth christ in our hearts,thats y he is saying you must be bornagain,88 TIMES HE REFERS TO HIMSELF AS THE SON OF MAN IMPLING MANKIND NEEDS TO BIRTH CHRIST IN HIS LIFE/HEARTS, Jesus said all that th father has is mine,and all mine is thine and all thine is mine etc, THUS HE WAS THE ONLY TRUE HEIR
  • Alex
    Disciple OUR NEW Innerman is the result of his Seed, the WORD sown in our hearts that initiates a birth of Christ in us, which is mankinds fruit THE SON OF MAN WHICH IS spirit,(the H.G.) As he said that which is BORN of the spirit is SPRIT which is the H.G.THAT IS GONNA BE BORN IN US,SIMPLY B/C THAT GOODSEED IS GONNA BE SOWN IN US THUS OUR INNERMAN IS THE H.G. TH KINGDOM INUS
  • A disciple
    Alex; Brother, I can see that you are thinking a lot about what you read, and are very serious about seeking to understand the Scriptures; but there are some things you're not getting right just yet. We ARE the Heirs with Christ. The Holy Spirit is the Paraclete given into our hearts to sanctify us, and to lead and guide us into all Truth; so that we can be Jesus' witnesses to convict the world.
  • Alex
    Gal 4 speaks of the heir.but we are NOT the heir, its the H.G that is the true Heir, Jesus said that which is born of the spirit is SPIRIT which is our new innerman that has to be born in us via his seed the WORD, WE ARE JUST A JOINT HEIR IF WE BIRTH CHRIST IN OUR LIVES, THE SON OF MAN, which is the essence of the new covenant,i will put my Words in their hearts and minds initiating a New Birth.
  • Alex
    Gal 4 is the new covenant which is christ in you via that good seed, the word the very essence of the new covenant. we are gonna birth christ in our hearts which is the H.G. THE CHILD OF PROMISE,thats y the new birth is so important, being bornagain of an incorruptible seed etc CHRIST is gonna be formed in us via that good seed, them that are BORN of God CANNOT Sin,THUS THE LAW IS FULFILLED
  • Ray321
    Thank God for the new creature in Christ that never sins inside us that are born again child of God. Now the flesh will always sin because of its nature. If we feed the new creature by reading the Word of God, it will cleanse us. So then, brethren, we are not children of the bondwoman, but of the free. feed the new creature of God and be cleanse of sins.
  • A disciple
    To be free from the condemnation of the Law is not an "opt out," or as if we can say a password and get let into the Club while the rest have to pay. If there is no real deliverance from the power of darkness, and of sin's dominion over us; then there can be no release from the condemnation of the Law. Jesus did a complete and perfect work on the cross, to save us FROM our sins, not IN our sins!
  • Lyle Lee
    :21-31 reveal the allegory of Abraham, being God the Father, Hagar being the Ten Commandments in stone, Sarah being the Ten Commandments in the heart, Ishmael being God's first born son Israel and Isaac being God's second born son Christianity, this allegory is repeated in Romans 9 when using the same typologies for the law of God in stone is bondage but in the heart it is libtery.
  • Steve morrow
    GALATIANS 4:7 WHEREFORE THOU ART NO MORE A SERVANT BUT A SON AND IF A SON THEN AN HEIR OF GOD THROUGH CHRIST*****EPHESIANS 3:14 FOR THIS CAUSE I BOW MY KNEES UNTO THE FATHER OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST 4:8 OF WHOM THE WHOLE FAMILY IN HEAVEN AND EARTH IS NAMED *****ACTS 3:23 AND IT SHALL COME TO PASS THAT EVERY SOUL WHICH WILL NOT HEAR THAT PROPHET SHALL BE DESTROYED FROM AMONG THE PEOPLE
  • Vireen
    Just to add to what Scott said, being free from the Law also means not under its condemnation, and that can only happen when Christ is living in us, only Christ can bring freedom from the condemnation of the law.

    Paul's writings are hard to understand if you do not understand the "law" and what the "curse" of the law is. Being under the curse was when you broke the law or did not keep it. keeping the law was not a curse to you and the law in itself was not a curse to anyone. Paul is saying that the law must be kept to not be under the curse of the law. That the Messiah Yushua Jesus came to redeem those that were under the curse of the law which was "Sin". He did not come to take away the law, but came to take away the curse sin's of those that had not kept the law. He died for our sins to be taken away, not the law to be taken away as some may believe.
  • Stephende
    In this chapter the divergent path of is explained. Will we trust in the Law given by God thru Moses, the oracles, or do we obviate the law thru Faith in the Son of God. Our faith, does it not depend on the law, for God heareth no sinners. He is a God who loves righteousness and hates the worldly man. Jacob have I loves but Esau have I hated. I think will must be ever mindful of our actions and perceptive of our inner most being so that we are acceptable in his sight. Our Faith is strengthened as we endure the hardships put in our path and still not falter in our Faith. Let every aspirant work out his own salvation by staying in the Word of Good, thereby being approved of God, the Father of our Master, Jesus Christ.
  • Agar born of the flesh persecuted Isaac born of the spirit . The verse ends saying- Even so it is now. Does this mean that the flesh continues to persecute the spirit even today. I would say YES. Does it have any reference to Paul 's persecution of Jesus? The flesh verses the spirit? Or am I correct on both accounts?
  • John Matlala
    Our Beloved Apostle Paul was more radical when writing this Letter, the question of Ten commandemnts was addreseed by His Lord, Our Lord Jesus Christ on his first public Speech, Mat5:17-18. He Said i 'm not here to put end to law but to add. And not even one letter from law will be removed until the end comes. we therefore need to be cautious about not breaking Ten Commandments which were given to Moses in Mt Sinai.
  • So it doesn 't mean the pastor has an excuse to rip thru the flock yelling screaming and bullying because it is how he interprets "change my voice ", perhaps there is room here for spirit o meekness?
  • Augustine for verse 5
    we need to understand what Jesus did for us before in old testament from Gensis to Malchi God is not mention to any one he is my son or she is my daughter, only by Jesus is possible are believer called adopted sons and daughter. Amen
  • Ruthtur for verse 19
    No matter how hard or how many times you mess up, you can begin again. Best is yet to be when you are fully developed love consciousness and embodied Christ. A new beginning towards this goal starts today or any day you are ready. And if your body wears out and you are birthed into a new body, I will still be there for you. I am there with you for as long as it takes.
  • It is no wonder that for the next thirteen years of Abraham s life, Scripture records no actions of faith on Abraham s part. No revelation from God. No apparent fellowship with the Lord. No mention of prayers or sacrifices made. Thirteen years of spiritual barrenness wasted years! But why? Ishmael was the son Abraham produced of his own self effort, his own fleshly dependence, his own human thinking. Ishmael was not the son of promise, the miraculous child that God would bring of divine intervention. Ishmael represents the flesh, whereas Isaac represents the Spirit Gal. 4 28 31 .
  • Yaw O. Danso for verse 10
    Gal. 4 10 when thought of in occurrences in modern times, is very sad. These days we have Mothers ' and fathers ' day,valentine day, etc. We are all witnesses to how passionately these days are observed in almost all countries and communities all over the world. Let us ask ourselves and be very honest with our answer do we observe religious days with such passion? The answer is no. Paul 's comment in Gal 4 10 is as relevant to us in these end times as it was to the Galatians in Paul 's era. We have to stop and think.
  • OLIVIER
    Now I say, That the heir, as long as he is a child, differeth nothing from a servant, though he be lord of all
  • This verse alone is what should give the Islamics an understanding of where they stand as regards to the birth right of Ishmael. The bondwoman was Haggar the mother of Ishmael therefore he was born of the flesh. But, Issac who was born of the freewoman Sarah was by promise. Issac is the rightful heir therefore, the Muslims need to stop fighting the Jews over that land God gave to Issac 's heirs. The promise was made to the son of Sarah and not the son of Haggar. The son of Haggar falls under the Abrahamic Covenant in the same order as of the Gentiles.
