Galatians (Part #15) completes our lengthy examination of Paul’s letter to the Galatians by confirming he puts a difference between the faithful and general masses. Is Yahweh’s Law “done away with?” This final sermon looks at the apostle’s closing benediction and candid statement “God forbid that I should glory except in the Cross of Jesus Christ” thus proves everything but preaching the Gospel is vanity.
Galatians (Part #14) continues the final chapter of Paul’s letter by explaining his claim “whatsoever a man soweth that shall he also reap.” Why are Israelites commanded to esteem all men better than themselves? Do those that habitually transgress God’s Law become a servant of sin? These answers are provided in this relaxed sermon designed to provide updates on CPM while upbraiding our faith in Christ.
Galatians (Part #13) scrutinizes the nine specific fruits of the Spirit as outlined by the apostle Paul who further instructs the faithful to crucify the flesh. This thirteenth sermon from our long running series on Galatians discusses the law of Christ and teaches to recognize the spirit of meekness. We conclude with Paul’s claim “if a man think himself to be something when he is nothing he deceives himself.”
Galatians (Part #12) contrasts both literal and spiritual circumcision while detailing more about Peter and Paul’s contention over the Mosaic Law. What are the works of the flesh? How do the faithful walk within the Holy Spirit? Does Jesus’ “golden rule” still apply today? To answer this sermon deals with Paul’s warning “if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another.”
Galatians (Part #11) mostly explains Paul’s statement “a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump” and how it applies in today’s society. Does Christ demand circumcision from His followers? Are we justified by obeying Yahweh’s Law? Is faith greater than obedience? This sermon confirms the faithful must oftentimes prune their metaphorical vineyards of deadwood to truly grow within the Holy Spirit.
Galatians (Part #10) deals with the apostle’s seemingly complex claim that “Jerusalem which is above is free which is the mother of us all.” In this sermon Paul uses both Hagar and Sarah as Old Testament allegories to represent the two covenants: one of faith the other by promise. Which is greater? How can the faithful reconcile Paul’s own statement “All Israel shall be saved” with his teachings in Galatians?
Galatians (Part #9) deals mostly with the apostle’s timeless statement; “Am I therefore become your enemy because I tell you the truth?” Is it forbidden under the new covenant to observe times? What is our initial consecration? In this sermon we scrutinize Paul’s teaching that legalizers wish to bring the faithful into bondage by using Yahweh’s Law and also verify it’s always proper to be a zealot for integrity.
Galatians (Part #8) continues our lengthy series on Paul’s letter to the Galatians by illustrating new heirship under Christ for every gentile nation. What does “adoption of sons” mean? What’s the difference between Israelite and Galatian? How important is belief to Jesus? This upbeat sermon explains how servants under the yoke of Old Testament Law are made sons of God through faith in our Redeemer.
Galatians (Part #7) deals with one of the hardest statements ever made by the apostle Paul; “There is neither Jew nor Greek in Christ Jesus.” How was the Mosaic Law a schoolmaster (or tutor) intended to bring us to the Messiah? The persecuted apostle proves gentiles are the descendants of Adam thus if they accept Yahshua as Messiah they become part of the everlasting promises made to Israel.
Galatians (Part #6) describes how Christ became a mediator for the Old Testament and confirms that faith is much greater than obedience to our Father. Is the Law of Yahweh no longer applicable to our Christian walks? This letter to the Gauls provides a basic overview of the Abrahamic covenant and allows Paul to clarify these “heathen” are part of the numerous nations blessed through Isaac’s elected seed.
