    Thank you BROTHER DAN ,CASSIDY ,MISHAEL and CHRISE, i am currently in shock and awe as i have never really expected to hear from anyone.as i tremble to type while wiping the salty discharge from my eyes I thank you ALL from what seems to be left of my heart . Three words in my vocabulary i have struggled with for months know r bitterness, humbleness, and humility.

    The amount of prayer for decernment and strength over these words makes me feel at times ,well most times obsessed and sometimes very uncomfortable if that makes any sense , at times I'm an anointed by some readings or some conversation . And it is so so glorious and comforting,however it's very short-lived and yet to always see myself falling backwards into some of the same old thought processes . I am a construction worker so please bare with me as i am no the most tech savvy but i would really appreciate any and all feedback regarding the topics i have mentioned , i am currently inspired for the day while my cup has something in it to fuel me , thanks to all who i mentioned and made this a good day for me .

    Dear Brother Jason,

    Pray to God in the name of his Son, Jesus Christ. Talk to him, HE will listen, and HE will comfort You. Ask him to guide you, and put your life in His hands.

    Isaiah 41:13

    "For I the LORD thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee."

    I will also pray for you.

    God Bless.

    Dear friend in Christ please don't be afraid . What ever is going on with you at this time you can be sure God sees you and hears you and knows your turmoil . Try to stay calm and don't make any life changing decisions if you are feeling fragile . Be still and wait for God . Put your trust in Him and He will show you the way .pray to Him with an honest and open heart , doing this is an acknowledgement of Him and His power to heal you . If you have a Christian friend , or even just a person who you know to be a kind soul , talk to them also . Many fears completely loose their power over you if you speak them out loud . Don't give up on God and His mercy , it is new every day . He knows you and cares for you no matter what you think of yourself He loves you and nothing you can do can negate His love for you . Talk to Him , trust Him and wait for the answer . It will come .

    Charles Capps was my friend. He's deceased now. Still has a teaching on YouTube, Titled: the Authority of the Believer. listen to it and get ALL the scripture references.

    The Dominion God gave to Adam

    + the Authority of the Believer in Christ

    = Total Destruction of Satan's Power against

    Believers in Jesus Christ.

    Satan (as an outlaw spirit) stole Adams Dominion briefly. That includes all the principalities, powers and demons mentioned in Ephesians 6. They are all outlaws since the Birth of Jesus as HUMAN.

    The Dominion was given to a human Adam.

    By Abrahams (in Covenant with God) willingness to sacrifice his own son, Isaac; the plan was set in motion to redeem mankind through Jesus the Messiah. He had to be fully God, and fully Human (THE SON OF MAN) or, the son of a human.

    He set aside His power, to come to earth as a newborn baby.

    Jesus appeared at times in the Old Testament as the Son of God. He was in the furnace with the 3 Hebrew children in Daniel. He wrestled with Jacob, etc.

    Time rolled onward; And the genealogy Bloodline, until Bethlehem. Mary and Joseph were both descendants of King David. (A prophesy fulfilled)

    I'm going to skip forwardif Satan knew what the Godhead was doing, he would've not allowed the crowd to scream "crucify Jesus" and then do it. He was sure that he had gotten rid of Jesusuntil the 3rd day when Jesus came out of the Tomb!!!

    We CHRISTIANS have the Dominion, the Authority of Jesus Christ to ruin Satan's plans EVERY day. The Holy Spirit accomplishes the WORD OF GOD coming out of our mouth. "It is WRITTEN"

    We've been given everything we need to make satans life a nightmare. Many, many sons and daughters of God using Jesus's Name, His Authority, Dominion, over all the works of Satan and his demons. The Holy Spirit will give us the names If We Ask Him!

    We are children of the Most High God; not orphans! Jesus is our High Priest and the King of Glory. reread top line

  • Philip Christian Parks on Galatians 6
    Re. Gal. 6:9-10 = Verse nine suggests three principles:

    1st, Most often, the positive and profitable activity of well-doing is inconvenient, costly, and sacrificial in time, energy, labor, and resources.

    2nd, GOD does not always reward well-doing immediately or even in this lifetime.

    3rd, GOD always rewards well-doing in "due season."

    Contextually, this "well doing" refers to "communicating" temporal wealth to teachers who "teacheth in all good things" (v.6), as well as providing life-support resources to the less fortunate within "the household of faith" (v.10).

    The words "season" (v.9), and "opportunity" (v.10) translate from the same Greek noun root, both meaning a very specific, short, and measurable period of time, climaxed by an important decisive event. Contextually, this "due season" specifically refers to CHRIST's Second Coming wherein HE will ultimately reward HIS children for their well-doing (cp. Rev. 22:12 re. "rewards").



    The New Testament speaks much concerning rewards which GOD The FATHER and LORD JESUS CHRIST will give to the Faithful. See Mt. 5:12; 6:4, 6, 18; 10:41-42; 16:27; Mk. 9:41; Lu. 6: 23, 35; 1Cor. 3:8, 14; Heb. 11:26; 2Jn. 1:8; and Rev. 22:12.

    Do not allow weariness, exhaustion, and impatience prompt you to quit in well-doing as "faint not" (v.9) suggests (cp. 1Cor. 15:58).

    The first priority of individual Christians and the local church is to provide necessary aid and support first and foremost, and "especially" (v.10), to the church's less fortunate, if and when necessary in the same manner as did the Jerusalem church "as every man had need" (Ac. 2:45; 4:34-35).

    The expression, "household of faith" (v.10), identifies all Christians generally, and the local church specifically (cp. Eph. 2:19; 1Pet. 4:17). First Timothy 3:15 adds further descriptions: "the house of GOD, which is the Church of The Living GOD, the pillar and ground of the Truth."

    Amen, brother Jesse. Today a very small group of believers meets in a rented office building in Anaheim. A local minister and his family went down to fellowship with the little group for the weekend.

  • Jesse - in Reply on Galatians 6
    Michael,

    Brother Bailey gave a great response. I would like to share a little more with you if I may. Galatians 6:10 says, "As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good to all men."



    That word good is the word AGATHOS. It's the good of God. It doesn't mean do humanitarian good things. It means the goodness of the Spirit of God ministering through us to others.



    As you have opportunity, do good to all men. It's not human effort. It's the Spirit of God working through the believer that causes that believer to do good to others.

    And then it says, "Especially unto them that are of the household of faith." The believers in Christ are top priority!

    There are too many churches that make the non-believer the priority and they don't take care of their own.



    Many believers go without food, and the church can be going through difficult financial circumstances, but they are willing to spend thousands of dollars on advertising and on various church programs in order to attract more people to their church. And the church suffers because we are not taking care of our own.



    My prayer is that God would raise up believers with a care and concern to reach other believers. That would be nice!



    In fact Jesus said, all men will know that you're my disciples when you have love for one another, meaning other believers. Brothers and sisters in Christ have top priority. No one should experience the inability to live and function with food and clothing and shelter.



    So the conclusion is let us do good for all men, but especially to those who are of the household of faith.
  • Brother Bailey - in Reply on Galatians 6
    The household of faith is the Church which is the believers in Christ. In 1 John we are told if we love Christ we will love our brother also. We are expected to love and show care to everyone, but especially to our own family, which is other believers in Christ.
  • Michael Eyeh on Galatians 6
    Verse 10: As we have opportunity let us do good to all men especially to those of the household of faith. Question: Who are those of the household of faith and Why is more attention given to them?
  • Mzwandile on Galatians 6:6
    Thank you so much for your Revelation of the word of God in you and your comment in Jesus Christ Name! May God embrace you more through the power of God and the the baptism of the Holy Spirit about Galatians 6:6 I will ask the Lord God Almighty by Himself for me to hear what is He's saying to me about this. Thank you so much and God bless all His Servants good and bad I am speaking as a man of God and the Servant of God in Jesus Christ Name!
  • Fred Scanlan - in Reply on Galatians 6
    Christ, has the power to forgive sins. He does this with his word. Circumcision is what actually happens when your spirit confesses His name and believes on him. Circumcision, becomes the cutting away of our sins, and a renewing of our spirit in Christ Jesus. This is what we mean when we say "abide in Christ". Then again In baptism , we are born again. The renewing of the holy spirit, buried in his death, raised again in his resurrection. These are illustrations of what actually happens to a person that receives the spirit of Jesus Christ.

    Galatians 6:17. The statement by Paul: let no man trouble me I guess that is what should be explained first
  • Chris - in Reply on Galatians 6:6
    I appreciated your comment very much Andrew. The teacher/student relationship & accompanying responsibility is a serious one as that 'union' will require much care & consideration of one other. The teacher: that he teaches correctly & with well supported references & appropriate illustrations; & the student: that he learns in all humility & sense a liberty to question or require amplification of that which is before him. The teacher must also be prepared to listen & carefully weigh the propositions or other possibilities that the student presents, even as elementary or unenlightened they may be. When a student has such confidence in his teacher, even as the teacher seeks to impart knowledge with the intent of shaping the mind & character of his student, then an outcome of real & lasting change can be expected. And for you to determine & identify those Spiritual Gifts & character that the Lord so bestows upon the student, will be the catalyst for him to verify & build up on it.

    A pastor truly led of the Spirit & so blessed to receive an observation or revelation from his congregant, should with all desire entertain such an occasion, knowing that his ministry is bearing fruit & his member(s) are using their times at home to more useful sacred purposes. Sadly, many pastors often only expect doctrinal or textual criticism & highlighting of their shortcomings at the end of the Lord's Day message. Your encouragement of him will also strengthen his resolve & add to his faith & walk in the Lord. Keep up the good work Andrew & the Lord bless you.
  • Andrew S on Galatians 6:6
    You know, was studying Galatians 6:6 here and realized I memorized it in the KJV. let him "communicate all good things....". Funny, my original understanding of that verse was that IF the Lord inspires me with some revelation (actual "epipheny") by what the teacher instructs and/or in my own time & Bible study the Lord should reveal deeper things to me- Then it is my responsibility to come back to the Pastor or teacher and share with them the things which the Lord has recently revealed to me.... In other words, blessing the leader that I've been studious before the Lord and because of the leader's oversight, I've grown in understanding and revelation of God's Word.- Also this blesses "the teacher" with a form of submission in God's Holiness and instruction, showing him good faith that I'm a "good soldier" under the teacher's tutelage. (Yes, I appreciate the online studies which show in other versions clearly that the student/members should with humility and gratitude physically support or encourage the pastors and teachers in leadership- something often lacking in today's Western congregations /individual membership).- Still, I like my original King James understanding and since I'm in a present mentoring role, this is one of the verses I'm going to show my Bible student and it's various interpretations, not so I can physically gain from him, but so as he moves forward-soon w/o my influence that he can go on to become a better, more-disciplined and committed disciple-follower of Christ Himself; also as he similarly has a gift of "teaching" and has been resistant in being willing to acknowledge the obvious gifts (where he has taught in secular forums of the past) and thus submit himself to other church leadership for future training and practical use of his God-given talents. (don't worry, praise the Lord, he is getting there even presently). Amen.- God Bless all the sincere students and servants of the Lord and of His Word.
  • Andy G van den Berg on Galatians 6
    On GAL. 6:7

    The Word of God is God ( John 1:1) and not for any private interpretation ( 2 Peter 1:20). If it records in Rev. 12:9 that this whole world has been deceived, it did not speak of a particular country, group of people, person or religion, it meant the whole world.

    For a better understanding and the 'spiritual truth' what it means to repent, and learn how and by whom ( 2 Cor. 11:13-15) this whole world has been deceived and what mankind must do to be reunited with the true and living God, we invite you to seek Him according to the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive ( Matthew 7:7; John 14:17).

    The word 'Repent' in different forms (repent, repentance, repented, repentest, repenteth, repenting), is mentioned 110 times in the KJV, and there seems to be a great misconception what the true 'spiritual' meaning of the word is. The word 'repent' used in the New Testament was translated from the Greek word "metanoeo", and means to change, transform, to think differently or reconsider.

    Only through Repentance will God be able to reveal Himself, and adopt you as His sons and daughters ( Rom. 8:15,23; 2 Cor.6:18; Gal. 4:5; Eph. 1:5; Hebr. 12:5; 1 John 3:1) and reveal to you how this whole world has been deceived ( Rev. 12:9) and overcome this world ( 1 John 5:4).

    The word 'Repent' means a lot more than what people by nature have been conditioned to believe. It is the key principle of all the teachings of Jesus Christ and the axiom (basis) of the Word of God and a prerequisite and primary requirement for the salvation of mankind. It means the changing of spirits - to turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan unto God ( Acts 26:18).

    It is only by revelation of God that people will come to know the true Christ ( Daniel 12:4,9; Amos 3:7; Matthew 16:17; Luke 2:26; Romans 16:25; 1 Cor. 2:10; Gal. 1:16; Eph. 3:3,5; Rev. 1:1). It should also be remembered that it is a narrow way that leadeth unto 'Life', and few there be that find it ( Matthew 7:14).
  • Marvin Bronowicz on Galatians 6:17
    Hebrews 2.7 says, "Thou hast made him a little lower than the angels". Exegete's believe the usage of the word "little" means " for a little while", or simply to rephrase, "Thou hast made him for a little while lower than the angels! Jesus said "if you've seen me, you have seen the Father! God is a Spirit. No one of the flesh has ever or will never see him! Jesus Christ is the "Word" incarnate, made in the flesh. John 1. 1, and Jesus is therefore the "eternal living Word of God"!

    Most of all I believe that before he was made flesh, Jesus (the Word), counciled with the Trinity and agreed to become a sacrificial offering, a blood sacrifice (God's covenant with man has always involved a blood sacrifice for sin!

    Jesus is the image of the invisible God and for a little while , 33 1/2,years in the flesh,was a little lower than God because to satisfy Gods justice for sin, make peace between God and man and to bring us back into a right "relationship with Our Father in the Spirit, Jesus had to lower himself to be that sacrificial offering , a lamb, the lamb of God! Only God could do what Jesus the Eternal Living Word of God did! Die for the sins of the World AFTER HAVING LIVED A SINLESS 33 1/2 years in the flesh!!!

    Galatians 6:14

    But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world.

    Read Galatians 6:15-6:18.

    The Christian's glory must bear the marks of the body of Jesus Christ in the cross, in their own bodies. If we glory outside of these marks of Jesus Christ we are glorying in our own marks from the world or in the world.

    It is interesting that Paul writes in the cross instead of on the cross and it is purposeful. In the marked body of Jesus Christ is our hope and eternal life. His life was taken on a cross and his Body bore the marks of the cross yet His suffering was for our sin and our hope and our lives.

    It is in this suffering, in the cross, where we can glory because it is here that we have been freed from our bondage of sin and death.

    Jesus Christ is our beloved Savior and grace and he will bless a Christian's Spirit.
  • Oriyomi Sunday Ajayi on Galatians 6:17
    Gal. 6:17. The mark of the Lord Jesus is the greatest thing that can happen to anyone. Paul overcame the beast in Melita Island because of the Lord's mark. I love this verse.

  • Chris - in Reply on Galatians 6
    Sheila, those verses can be confusing, that is why we must appeal to the original language to find the difference.

    Gal 6:2: the meaning of 'burdens' here is a 'weight' = baros, in Greek. And in the context of the verse, Paul is imploring the Galatian Church that should help carry (or, share) each others' weights. In verse 1, the point is made of a believer overcome by some sin; instead of accusing that person, they should help that person to restoration, & in so doing they would share that burden by their understanding, care & help given to that person. So too, if a believer is worrying, perplexed, or having financial or marital problems, etc., another who is enjoying victory in Christ should quickly volunteer assistance to ease that weight that is getting the sufferer down which may also cause them to grow weak in faith.

    Gal 6:5: the Greek here is "phortion" = load. This sounds similar in meaning to the other word, baros, but its use is for the load that we carry ourselves, or as a ship, or truck might carry. These are loads we can't share with another & on a personal level, it means that we have to carry & be responsible for our own loads as we walk along life's road. Paul, I think, is specifically referring to how we maintain our Christian life: are we careful, watchful, prayerful, self-examining, etc.? These are loads we all carry as we try to please the Lord with our lives. And these loads cannot be shared with another - they are for us individually to carry. Yet, Jesus says in Mt 11:30, that His "burden is light". Unlike the heavy burdens the Jewish religious leaders placed on the people, Jesus says that following Him won't be heavy at all, as He (by His Spirit) is there to make our Christian experience light on burden & heavy on joy & peace.
  • Sheila Hedgepeth on Galatians 6
    in Galatians 6:2 it says "Bear ye one another burdens. in Galatians 6:5 it says " for every man shall bear his own burden." I'm confused.
  • Aortha Givens on Galatians 6:9
    Every time I say to myself I'm not going to help those that I am helping because they don't seem to, (for lack of a better word) appreciate it the Holy Spirit brings this verse to mind and it puts me back on track and another verse comes to mind, "whatsoever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men" Colossians 3:24
  • Grant r gabler on Galatians 6
    Put all your faith and trust in the Lord our rock because everything else is just sinking sand. Verse that I pray everyday is Joshua 1:9. Its give me much peace. Thank you Lord Jesus for all the many blessings seen and unseen.
  • BJ FORD on Galatians 6:9
    This beautiful verse gives me the strength to keep doing good things for the lord. i know it is the devil who comes againts god's children and tells me i am not doing enough for the lord. he is a liar. for the message in this verse tells me to keep on doing for the lord one day i will reap a reward if i stay steadfast to the lords word. amen
