Welcome to the intensified Catholic child in the 13th date June 21 as a Christian you are 100% expected and deeply left embracing that truth will impact how you live every day. Here's more on our study of Galatians. If you turn the Galatians chapter 4 and we saw beginning in this fourth chapter were talking about bondage here and how the child differed from the servant, and he gives an illustration of the beginning for this fourth chapter of the latter part of it. He does the same thing. The last few verses there beginning in verse 12 and he bases his plea for liberation. First of all, the purity of his most he says brethren, I beseech you, because I am that is free from the law. For I am as you are.

He says you are free from the law, you have not injured me all the diseases you have done me no harm. You know how, through infirmity of the flesh.

I preach the gospel of the personnel.

When Paul first to these Galatian churches needed him to stop here and evangelize these people, but because he developed an disease which is call up Claudia E he's had to stay there and as a result of having to say that he began to evangelize these people and he said you know how, through infirmity, the flesh, I preach the gospel to you the first.

That is, that was about ultimate objective. There I was on my way through but he says he and Martin Tatian.

It is my trial I disease here which was in my flesh. You despise not the rejected. He said you didn't reject me because I was hardly look upon because I was disease because I was sick of infirmity. He said he didn't despise me. Nora gently and that's the only time that would reject his use New Testament and it needs to spit something out.

He said he didn't reject me because of my sickness, but rather he says you receive me as an angel of God and when the Jewish people, there would not listen to, and they walked out of the synagogue, the Gentiles came and we would like to hear what you say so.

This was a very special group of people are treated Paul very very friendly and warm. He says that in verse 15 pieces where he is then the blessedness you spoke Brian. He reckoned that if it had been possible you love me so much. You are so grateful that I share the truth you he said you were plucked at your own eyes, and have given them to me.

He's is not what happened.

When I first came and showed me the truth.

The response was loving you took me in.

Even in my condition. You took me in and loved me and responded to me he's is what is it now am I in verse 16.

Have I become your enemy because I tell you the truth is that not exactly what happened to Jesus when he told the people of his data through the crucified, that is Satan. One of Satan's most choice methods and that is the people that he would somehow work in the minds and hearts of people to bring about a distortion of truth that the parents truth teller in the being persecuted and you see if a person has difficulty in accepting the truth. I need to ask themselves why is it that I'm uncomfortable with it. Is it because it is unscriptural or is it because I don't like what it demands of me is it because I don't want to face what government requirement is it because I'm unwilling to yield that part of my life. Is it because God is going to require me something that I'm not willing to give up at this point in my life. And so what do we do we do several things really become very passive for the person who's doing the talking all we attacked in order to destroy the person who is giving the truth in order to avoid facing the truth now say that to you. Not because I'm afraid that you would attack me for what I've said to you, but if you hear the true you must be willing to be open about the same Lord, are you saying something to me that is difficult for me to accept that his ruling up my foundations that's making me very uncomfortable and using a watchlist.

The only way to be continuously growing in the play is to be continuously listen continuously yielded to Almighty God, and whatever else he mostly seen in your life.

Whatever else he wants to remove them regardless of how long you been dragging along with you. God must have the freedom to remove, carry out, destroy in order to plan something new and to keep on building is in a Christlike whenever we get to the partner Christian life. When we are satisfied with knowing so much that his budget was now diligently have and that's all we want.

Anyway, there's something desperately wrong that accountability if you sitting here week after week and you satisfied where you are that I will tell you something as loving as I know how your relationship with Jesus Christ is not right.

It can't be right. If you satisfied without a hunger for God. One of the sweetest ladies in this church remember her as long as I live. One of the things about her that used to thrill me is here. She was in her 70s. She couldn't get and she was trying to get more get ready for heaven. She was as solid and said in her salvation experience beautiful sweet lovable woman of God brought her by always asking me questions about things that I preached about in the medical notes in the back of her Bible to be sure she got it done just right at 72 years of age, Terry wanted because I want you to know something that I feel inside. I want for you to hunger and thirst and desire all mighty God in your heart about every thing else in this world that 70s that's why don't mind repeating something over and over and over and over and over again.

Somebody comes.

This is what I preaches repetitions you telling a man because my desire is that you are a quick because it's ringing in your ears and across his standing before your and the spirit of God is bubbling in your heart because you know what you believe and why you believe it and you can't keep quiet. You got to tell somebody that is the most contagious kind of Christianity, and is the kind Almighty God wants role of the children as owners who question, do you have a little streak of pride is not right in the middle of your back is over here on the side somewhere just a little bit. It won't let you quiet except something new that you've not heard before, because you don't know how to do limitation.

Be very careful how you respond to true you want to check it out with Scripture number one. It is not scriptural, just forget.

But if somebody comes along with the word of God and teaches you the truth and you uncomfortable. What you need to ask yourself is this God.

Are you trying to say something to me about me.

That's the honest way to respond all right. Beginning in verse 22. Not here.

He goes back the picture again to describe them. Verse 21 to describe them in picture form something they could relate to and I want to show you what he's saying here brief… Pieces tell me you the desire to be on the login. Do you not hear the Lord, do you not understand what's going on for this written and then he give us a a picture of something. You recall that Abraham's wife Sarah was barren. She could not have a child so God had already given Abraham a promise know what is the word promise, a promise that his seed would be like the stars of the heaven will years went by and no son. So Sarah gets a wise idea. She's going to help got a little bit so she says, Abraham and Hagar my handmade I want you going to her So Ishmael Was the Son of the Flesh, the Son of Works. Manipulation of Two Women and a Man and His Name Is What Ishmael, the Other Was the Son of Promise, Whom God Had Promised Abraham and His Name Is What Isaac All Right on the Basis of That You Will in Verse 22 for He Says It Is Written That Abraham Had Two Sons, the One by a Slave Girl a Female Slave a Bond Woman and the Other by a Free Woman Sarah but He Was on the Bondwoman.

The Slave Hagar Was Born after the Flesh, the Work of Man Hagar Issue, but He of the Free Woman Sarah Was a Promise That's the Promise of God That He Mostly Shown the Comparison Which Things Are an Allegory Pieces Will Another Show You Is What Happened. Abraham Hagar and Sarah Ishmael and Isaac Is a Picture of What I Want You to Understand about the Law and about Drinks Which Things an Allegory Picture for These Other Two Covenants. The One from Mount Sonny.

Where Did Moses Get the Law Suddenly Speaks of Sanya. He's Relating to What the Law Okay so He Says One of These Comments from Mount Sonny Which Genders Which What a Which Brings Forth the One Run. So Trying to Keep the Law Put You in Bondage As He Says, before God Did Not Give the 10 Commandments in Order to Save Management. The Plan of Salvation, the Law Was Given to Do What Bring Man to His Help with the Awareness of His Own Helpless Condition That He Can't Keep the Law Is Not a Man, a Woman Borger Who Has Kept All the 10 Command and He Says If You Violated One of Them You Guilty of Harmony. All of Them so We Are All Guilty and No Man and No Generational Nation Could Ever Keep the Law of God, so He Says It Came As a Schoolmaster.

As a Teacher and to Render Helpless before God in Order That We Might Recognize and Need of Christ by Faith. So He Says That One Comment Was from Sanya Which Brings Forth the Bondage Which Genders the Bondage Which Is Hagar Hagar the Slave Woman Was a Symbol and Ishmael Was a Symbol of the Law. It Was of the Flesh for This Hagar Is Mount Sinai in Arabia and Answers to Jerusalem Which Now Is and Is in Bondage with Their Children about This, but Jerusalem, Which Is above Is Free, Which Is the Mother Was All so Here's What He Saying He Says Now on the One Side You Got Mount Sinai Well You Get the Law. Hagar and Mount Sonny and Ishmael All Referred to the Law and the Bondage on the Side You Have Sarah the Woman the Promise, Isaac Was on the Promise and Jerusalem so He Says What You Have These Two Contrasting Pictures. One of Them Represents Labor in Bondage in the Flesh. One of Them Represent the Promise in Spirit and Freedom… That's What He Saying so He Says in Verse 27 Paul Is Written Rejoice Now Barren the Bear Is Not Break Gordon Crile down the Travail Is Not for the Desolate.

That Is the Abandoned Have Many More Children Than She, Which Has a Husband Now. We, Brethren, As Isaac Was Missing. We As Isaac Was. He Was the Son of What Slavery a Promise from Cases We Are the Journal Promise, but As Then He That Was Born after the Flesh. Ishmael Persecuted Him. That Was One of the Spirit. Isaac Even so It Is Now Is What He Said. He Says These Judaizers over Here Who Are under the Law in the Flash.

He Says Now They're Persecuting You Who Have by Faith Had Been Liberated from Bondage and You've Been Saved of the Grace of God and You Being in Christ Jesus. Those That Were Symbolized by Hagar and Ishmael Living in Bondage on Their Persecuting Those of You Who Been Friendly but He Says As a Symbol of Fight against Isaac. So Now the Judaizers under the Bondage of Law Persecuting You Who Been Freed from the Law and You See What We Later Bring That in Today's Terms, Those Believers in the Body of Christ Today Who Are Living by the Law and under the Law and Trying to Work up Approval before God and Turned the Work of Acceptance before You and Who Plays Great Expectations upon Other Believers Because They Don't Do What They Think They Ought to Do. Those People Are Guilty of the Same Thing. These Judaizers Are Guilty so You See We Are to Respond and to Act toward Each Other in Love, Not Bullying a Bundle of Bondage on Somebody Else to Limit Their Expectation Because We Are in This Narrow Blows and Regulations and We Want to Do This Right. Right Unless We Get God's Disapproval. Therefore, We Will Have His Acceptance of One of These Days We Got This and All. And on and on We Go with You. See What He's Saying Here. There Is a Contrast and We Must Not Put Other People in the Bondage You Say Well It's Gonna Have Any Expectation of Us.

God Has Responsibilities Relevant God Has Equipped Every Single One of Us to Fulfill Adequately and Perfectly His Will Probably Be Perfect in the Body of God Is the God. He Says He Is. He's Not Going to Email, Equip Us to Do a Job for Him.

Now If I Feel Out Of Neglect to Sharpen My Skills or Whatever May Be, and I Do a Poor Job. I Am Responsible for Doing a Poor Job. When God Gives His Work to Do.

We Are Responsible to Get Done. That Is a Part of Our Ministry Is a Part of What God's Plan for Your Life and You See I'm Talking about a Balanced Life and Not Talking about Do Nothing, Say Nothing, Be Nothing Because God Is an Expected No Jesus Christ Had a Minister to Fulfill but He Wasn't on the Bondage to Do It. Jesus Knew How to Interpret Every Single Law and Regulation, Not As a Point of Bondage, but Rather As an Opportunity and so Unanimously. Is This We Can Put Other People in the Bondage of When Not Careful, and so People Go Away from Church and They'll Understand Why They Feel What They Feel Will Imitate What They Feel They Never Quite Feel like They Measure up. I Want to Taste Something, There's Nothing Anymore Destructive to Any Believer Than to Go to Church and Go Away Week after Week, Never Quite Feeling like They Have a Measure of a Man All My Has so Worked in Our Life. He Wants Us to Do What We Do Because We Loving Cherish Him and Cannot in Our Love and Devotion Ever Do Enough Not Because He Expects Impossible Because We Loving and You See What Is Motivating for Paul First about Here Is Purity of Motive.

He Love These People and the Second Thing Is Motivating Here Is a Picture of Scripture of Abraham Hagar and Sarah Ishmael and Not Go Back If You Will Burst or Not, but Is Then He That Was Born at the Flesh Persecuted Him Was Born of the Spirit. Even so, It Is Now.

Nevertheless, He Said What Saith the Scripture Cast out the Bond Woman and Her Son Saw the Bondwoman Should Not Be Here with Us on the Freewoman so Then Brethren, We Are Not Children of the Bondwoman, but He Says We Are Free.

We Are Free by Almighty God, Working to Start the Cross. 2000 Years Ago. The Battle Is over. It's Already Been Won and You and I Have Been Liberated to Worship Him and Love Him and Adore Him and Serve Him in That Order.

Worship Him, Love Him at Door Him and Serve. Why Listen Because of What He Did 2000 Years Ago and Because of the Way That Is Affecting My Life Today I Want to Worship Him. Praise Him and Love Him and Adore Him and about Praise and Worship and Love and Adoration Is Right. Nobody Is Ever Going to Have To Beat Me over the Head Serve My Plea to You My Friend, Is to Accept Your Liberty in Christ Jesus, and Let Your Servants Be Motivated by Love, Devotion, Pray Almighty.
