The Law fulfilled by Christ and in us.


In those days, Pharisees, sadducees and scribes were highly esteemed.

They were ranked as the standard of Righteousness.

They were Professors of the Law, Most honored, highly ranked and ‘Most Righteous’Their Righteousness was attained by observing and keeping the law.They were Masters.

When Jesus arrived, he made some of the most astounding statements that rubbed their shoulders wrongly.To them, he seemed not to observe the Law. Little did they know that He had come to fulfill it.To-date many still argue about the law, are we to relate with God by the law? Are we still under the Law?.Look here, the law had it’s requirements and conditions.

As we’ve read above, if you missed at one point, you missed the whole law.James puts it this way…👇🏼👇🏼Jam 2:10: “For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.”Jesus did not come to destroy the law but to fulfill it, some translations say ‘strengthen it’ but the real word there is ‘fulfil it’This means He met all the demands and requirements of the law on our behalf. He fulfilled all the law to the dot.This uplifted the burden of keeping the law from us.He fulfilled all the law. Now the righteousness of the law is not fulfilled by us.

It was fulfilled by Christ and therefore it is fulfilled in us
See👇🏼👇🏼Rom 8:4: “That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.”So because we have Christ who fulfilled the law living in us, we have also fulfilled the whole law in us.Next, we see Jesus telling us that the only way to enter His Kingdom is by having a Righteousness that exceeds that of the Pharisees.
We’ve noted that the Righteousness of the Pharisees was the Righteousness of the law.So, this means we need a greater Righteousness than that of keeping the law.This is the Righteousness that God gives, His own Righteousness.See 👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼Rom 3:21-22: “But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets; Even the Righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference:”The Righteousness of God received by faith.This is not worked for.This is not a reward but a gift.It is to all who believe.Do you believe?Yes, then you have this Righteousness which exceeds that of the Pharisees.
Actually, not only do you have this Righteousness, you are the Righteousness of God.Say this with me!!I AM THE RIGHTEOUNESS OF GOD!!

YOU HAVE HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS


For if by one man’s offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ (Romans 5:17).
John 1:17 says, “For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.” Jesus Christ didn’t come with the law; He came with grace, and brought us righteousness as a gift. Righteousness is the expression of the will and nature of the Father.

He declared us righteous, because we’re new creations in Him. 2 Corinthians 5:21 says, “For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.”
Romans 4:25 lets us know that He (Jesus) “…was delivered for our offences, and was raised again for our justification.” Thus, He’s our acquitter. When you heard the Gospel and believed, declaring Jesus Christ to be the Lord of your life, you became the recipient of His grace and righteousness. You weren’t justified before God because of your own righteousness; no! You stand in Christ’s righteousness; it’s the result of what Jesus did.
Jesus came, not only to reveal, demonstrate, and manifest the righteousness of God (the will and nature of the Father), but also to make us the righteousness of God. He’s given you that nature, ability, authority, and ministry, to carry on what He began both to do and teach.
He’s endowed you with the gift and ability to reveal and manifest the will, purpose and character of your heavenly Father. What a life! No wonder He calls you an associate of the God-kind: “Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust” (2 Peter 1:4). Meditate on this truth; think on what it means and live accordingly.
BLESSED BE GOD!

ARISE CHURCH ARISE 2020


Ps 30:5
… weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.

This has nothing to do with with Calendar days and nights, morning and evenings(Chronos)

There is what God refers to as day and night in his realm(Kairos)

Remember, God lives beyond time and our chronological order and events.

So in our case today, Night means the season of darkness when we are ignorant of what Christ has accomplished for us and who we are in him.
As long as we don’t know and understand our place, position and possession in Christ, weeping and sorrows reign over us.
Weeping will stay as long as you are still in the Night.
…joy comes in the morning.

Morning comes when we receive the light of the knowledge of Christ.
The enlightenment of the eyes of our understanding.
This ushers us into joy unspeakable.
Here we know that we know that we know who we are in Christ no matter whatever is around us.

We don’t pray for our morning to come, it comes as we grow in the knowledge of God.

When you wake up to the morning/the day of the Lord, you’ll live beyond the darkness of the night.

2Pe 1:2 Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord.

See who this light is
👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼

John 1:4-9: “In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. The same came for a witness, to bear witness of The Light, that all men through him might believe. He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light. That was The true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.”
John 8:12: “Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am The light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.”

Jesus is the Light.
Child of God, you are a threat to darkness, you have The Light of Life
With this consciousness, how can we fear Covid 19, how can we be worried about economic stunts…
How can we allow politicians and greedy leaders to determine our course of Life
Noo!!
A million times No!!
We should arise, our light has Come.
No more weeping, no sorrow…
Our time is now!!!
See, Isaiah saw our days and he said…
👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼

Isa 60:1-3: “”Arise, my people!
Let your light shine for all the nations to see!
For the glory of the Lord is streaming from you.
Darkness as black as night shall cover all the peoples of the earth, but the glory of the Lord will shine from you.
All nations will come to your light; mighty kings will come to see the glory of the Lord upon you.”
We carry the Life of God in us.
Church we should no longer play safe and act like victims..
We are Kingdom carriers.

Church arise and take your position. No turning back.

The Nations and Kings of the world are coming to us for solutions.

THE GLORY IS HERE!!

Giving in Grace


Giving in Grace

There are zero instructions to tithe in the New Testament letters. Not once does Peter or James or John or Paul tell us to give 10%.

And Jesus only mentions tithing four times in the gospels, and each time he does so to chastise the Pharisees for their pride. They were beating their chests about how much money they were giving, while they were neglecting weightier matters in the Law. Jesus only mentions tithing in order to point out the Pharisees’ hypocrisy.

Tithe was first given by Abraham to Melchizedek before the law was given. Abraham gave a tenth of his spoils(stolen properties) of war to a mysterious priest, Melchizedek. Some people argue that we should still tithe 10% today by claiming that we should imitate Abraham’s tithe to Melchizedek.

Well, Abraham killed people. Then he stole their belongings. Then he gave a tenth of his spoils of war to this mysterious priest.This was a common Middle Eastern battle tradition, not a religious activity. So is Abraham’s tenth really the model to follow? If we have to do what Abraham did, then we should we go to war, steal people’s stuff, and give a tenth to the church.

🙊😂😂😂Abraham did not give a tenth of what he owned but of what he stole.

Secondly, it was not set and recorded as His Lifestyle but he only did it once.

Thirdly, he was not blessed because he tithed, He was blessed way before he tithed.

The other reason why people tithe is because there was such an instruction in the law of Moses.

The Levites were the specific tribe assigned to serve in the temple as God had instructed. They were not getting any other income.So people were instructed to give a tenth to support the levites who were busy offering sacrifices in the temple.

At the cross, the levitical priesthood was abolished and the New covenant was ushered in. The law of tithing was removed together with this.We are dead to the law (Rom. 7:4; Gal. 2:19). We are not under the law (Rom. 6:14). We are not supervised by the law (Gal 3:25). We don’t serve in the old way of the law (Rom. 7:6). And Christ is the end of the law for those of us who believe (Rom 10:4). That’s how the Scriptures put it.

The other major reason why people tithe is Malachi 3:10🙈 Churches will quote Malachi 3 saying you’ll be blessed if you give ten percent and cursed if you don’t. Windows of heaven will be opened if you tithe..The devourer will not destroy you if you don’t.

The bottom line is that the New Testament tells us to give freely from the heart, not under pressure . It tells us to give in accordance with what we have and to give with a willing and generous heart (see 2 Corinthians 8:14 and 9:7).

The giving in the new covenant is not as to fulfil laws but according as one purposes in his heart, not out of pressure.Cheerful giving is the new way of Grace.There is no specific percentage in giving. We no longer give out of the fear of a curse, we’ve been delivered from the curse, Gal 3:13

Neither do we need open windows of heaven, we are already seated with Christ in the heavens Eph 2:6

Its no longer about percentages. The point is that, the issue of percentage has been removed, we now give as our hearts are led with generosity. Whether 5%, 10%, 23%, 65%, 79.9%, or 100%

Grace giving esteems any gift, even the single coin that the lady gave in the Gospels. Jesus esteemed her. 

Unlimited, cheerful and generous giver!!

Now, that’s the gospel!

Real tree 🌲  or Christmas tree 🎄 Christian ?


Real tree 🌲  or Christmas tree 🎄  Christian ?

​All preachers have the same vision of seeing people’s lives changed for good, but our routes to achieve this seems different and produces different results. 

Some tend to bend too much on behavior modification, the law which is the knowledge of good and evil and trying to bring change from outside in. What this achieves is a Christmas tree🎄 situation where individuals pretend to change from outside by showing some artificial fruits that seem glorious.  This becomes temporal and thus ineffective. That is the working of the law. The letter Killeth. 

On the other hand, the Gospel is about renewing our minds to know who already we have been made in Christ. Not forcing individuals to be who they are not. The gospel reveals righteousness from faith to faith. The Holy Spirit transforms men 👬 not by showing them what is good and evil, but by revealing and enlightening their eyes to see how righteous and holy they’ve become in Christ. He reveals all the free gifts in them in Christ. 

Now this transforms men from inside out. This becomes a real living tree🌲 producing fruits that are real Supernaturally natural. With this there is much joy and real change. The Spirit gives life. 

At first you may think that both trees 🎄 🌲 are the same but wait until the Christmas season is over and the 🎄 is demolished.

The real fruit producing tree 🌲 remains intact and glorious producing much more fruits. 

The first one 🎄 can be a quick fix whereas the second one 🌲 may take time and real labouring in the word. 

Now,  which one do you prefer

He has given us Himself.


Colossians 1:19, 27  For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell;

To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.
​God does not give things, He gives himself. He has given us himself in Christ. Together with Him are all things. Apostle Paul never prayed for the church to have things, instead, He prayed that their eyes be enlightened to see who they are and what they already have in Christ.

Eph 1: 18  The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints….

The Holy Spirit does not give us things, He reveals what is already given to us freely in Christ.
1Cor 2: 12  Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.
Asking God to give us things is missing the greater truth of the Gospel(Good News).The gospel is the revelation of Christ in us and our sufficiency in Him. It is not the message of our needs and insufficiency.

This is why we are called to BELIEVE.

The faith of Christ is not about what is going to happen but what has already happened in Christ. Its resting in what has already been accomplished in Christ Jesus. Its not about what we are looking forward to see God do, but what He has already done for us.

This is the distinction between the old testament faith and new testament faith. They looked forward to the coming of Christ, we live in the fulfilment of Christ.

Hebrews 11:13  These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims…

The Old Testament Faith was based on promises while our Faith is based on the fulfilment of all the promises of God in Christ.

Now God has come to indwell us.

My Prayer for us today!

May our eyes be flooded with light that we may see that which is already ours in Christ and boldly walk in it. Amen!

PRAYING CORRECTLY


​PRAYING CORRECTLY 


 2Ti 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed,rightly dividing the word of truth

The word of God is to be rightly divided, otherwise we end up mixing everything and living a confused Christian life. The Cross stands tall in the middle of human history as the dividing line.

Many things that were done before the cross are not applicable after the cross.

Most of the things we found ourselves doing were wrong and its time they be confronted with the truth of the Gospel of Christ. A lie in office for decades will never become the truth.

So many things changed after the cross. These includes; Giving, Praying, way of relating with God, forgiveness, obedience, among others.

PRAYER

The mentality many of us had of prayer presented God as a strange supreme being up there and humans as weaklings and desperate being that had to plead and bombard the gate of heaven to convince God for them to hear them and answer them.

With this, came the idea of PUSH, Pray until something happens

With it also came the issue of prayer warriors and the wrong idea of taking by force .

In the Old testament, God was known as Jehovah, there was no intimate/close relationship with him.

This was as a result of the fall of man..

God instructed Moses in the OT to set up a temple. He gave him specific details on how to make it.

The tabernacle had three major parts and the innermost one was called the Holy of Holies, this is where the presence of God dwelt and no one could enter this place except the High priest once every year.

This presence of God was separated from men by a very huge curtain.

No one could have fellowship with God at a personal level. They always needed a go-between.

In Matt 27:51 we see this curtain being cut twain… 50 And Jesus shouted again with a loud voice, and yielded up his spirit.

51 And suddenly the veil of the temple was torn in two from the top to the bottom. The earth quaked and the rocks were split

Glory to God.. Immediately Jesus gave up the ghost, the curtain was torn into two, that which separated man from God fell apart and an access to God was made through Christ. A personal intimate fellowship with God was made possible now.

Prayer is this intimate fellowship with God. It is more than just making requests to God.

1Thess 5:17 says, Pray without ceasing. If prayer is what many people think, then no one can pray without ceasing.

In the old testament, the high priest could only enter once in the most holy place. In the new testament we have unceasing fellowship with Daddy. 24/7. Hallelujah!

Eph 2:18 For through him(Christ) we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father.

Access to the father has nothing to do with us, it is all about Christ and what he did.

Real prayer focuses on what Christ accomplished for us not what we have done for him.

Prayer is focusing on Christ and His accomplished work.

Whatever we call prayer, minus Christ is just noise.

There are some prayers in the old testament that are irrelevant today..

A good example is the story of Hezekiah, after Prophet Isaiah told him about His death, scripture records that

2  Then Hezekiah turned his face toward the wall, and prayed unto the LORD,

3  And said, Remember now, O LORD, I beseech thee, how I have walked before thee in truth and with a perfect heart, and have done that which is good in thy sight. And Hezekiah wept sore. Isaiah 38

Hezekiah told God about his good works. Today, that’s not the way. We know none of our works can stand before him. Its Christ’s works that have been proved

My point in this is, Prayer does not necessarily mean speaking to God, its more than that. Its fellowshipping with God which means acknowledging the truths in Christ.

Philemon 6 That the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus.

Effectiveness of the christian faith and everything about it is experienced by acknowledging Christ.

This is what Jesus meant when he gave us his name. Majority of the people thinks that praying in the name of Jesus means that after every statement in prayer we include the phrase “in the name of Jesus”

Its more than that. He meant that, we can’t fellowship with God in our own name. We were raised in His name and therefore we live and fellowship with Daddy in his name. We stand in his shoes. It is His works that the father acknowledges.

Real prayer is agreeing with what Christ has accomplished, reading from the same page with God.

For instance, to the sick, prayer is not asking God to heal them but agreeing with God that by the stripes of Jesus they WERE healed.

Prayer is not telling God to do things but to agree, believe and rest in what he has already done.

Look at Paul praying for the Church in Ephesus

Eph 1:16

Cease not to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers;

17  That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him: note

18  The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints,

He is not asking that God will do things for them, He is praying that their eyes will be opened to see what they already have in Christ…

Another OT prayer, that people pray is this of David, in

Ps 51 10  Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me. note

11  Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me.

12  Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit.

Again this is a wrong prayer because it does not read from the same page with God. God reads from the page of the cross. He already has made us clean and new.

2Cor 5:17

Hallelujah.

It is funny to tell God to do what He has already done.. Actually it is like a slap on the face of Christ.

Everything in the Bible has some truth in it depending on its time of operation but not everything is THE TRUTH.

Another point is that in this new covenant, we pray from the sitting/resting position. By this I don’t mean physical sitting but Spiritual.

This can be well captured when we understand priesthood. When the tabernacle was being constructed, no furniture was allowed in. Both the High Priest and priests were not to sit down at any given point.

Jesus being our High priest sat down and we being priests sat together with Him.

Heb 10:12 But this man , after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God;

Eph 2:6 And hath raised us up together, and made us sittogether in heavenly places in Christ

Jesus

We pray from the place of DONE not DO. We have been ushered into His rest.

Neither prayers nor our faith moves God. God does not need to move. He moved once for all times and ultimately declared IT IS FINISHED

Whatever prayer we make, we know that God provided all the answers in Christ.

Prayer is not telling God to do, it is believing that He has DONE.

Its not Pulling Heavens Down, its agreeing and believing that we have been raised to the Heavenlies. Its not Praying until something Happens, its to agree and believe that something great happened.

All the Promises of God have become Yes and Amen in Christ . Hallelujah!

SHAPED BY THE WORD. 


SHAPED BY THE WORD. 

Since birth, our lives have been successfully shaped by, 

*cultural beliefs 

*economic status 

*education systems 

*media 

*Geographical location, etc. 

Man is a product of what he sees, hears and thinks overtime. This is what shapes a man. 

Matthew 13:15  For this people’s heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.

When we see correctly, hear correctly and understand correctly, conversion takes place and all kind of healings comes automatically effortlessly. 

Proverbs 23:7  For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: 

The heart content determines the outcome of our lives. Our thinking should be shaped by the Truth to effect the right changes. 

Luke 6:45  A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh.

when the heart content is changed, our life’s are changed. 

Being born again means receiving new citizenship. 

We need to be shaped by the New life. 

*Heavenly culture 

*Grace Economy

*In Christ Education 

*Gospel Media 

*New position

This is allowing the word of God to shape us. 

How does this happen? 

2 Corinthians 3:18  But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.

Romans 12:2  And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

When we see ourselves in the word, we are empowered to be and do it. 

But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed (James 1:25).

Doing the Word of God should be natural for you as a Christian, because being born again, you’re born of the Word (1 Peter 1:23). That means you have the nature of the Word, which gives you the ability to do the Word. Simply living out the Word is the key to an excellent and victorious life; that’s where the blessing is.

In the Old Testament, they were told to obey the Word of God. In the New Testament, we don’t obey the Word of God; we do the Word of God! In the Old Testament, the Word was to them an outside force. In the New Testament, it’s an inside force. The Word lives in us today; we’re born of the Word, and are thus, one with the Word. 

The Word of God is the mirror of God. The Bible says anyone who hears the Word and doesn’t do what it says, is like a man who sees himself in a mirror, turns around and forgets what he looks like (James 1:23-24). This means that God expects you to see yourself the way He sees you in His Word, and then act accordingly.

For example, the Word says you’re a joint-heir with Christ; therefore, you should never talk broke or live as one who’s disadvantaged in life. The world belongs to you as much as it belongs to Christ. 

All things are yours (1 Corinthians 3:21). Irrespective of your feelings or the circumstances, endorse these truths and act on them accordingly. The blessing is in acting on the Word, not just hearing or believing it. The creative power of the Word becomes effective once ignited by the faith-response from your spirit, bringing about a transformation in your life, from glory to glory.

The shaping by the word happens when we begin seeing ourselves as God sees us in His word. 

When we see our true being in Christ, we are transformed into the same image. 

Disregarding all human wisdom and philosophy and taking the word of God as the ultimate truth about us. 

Colossians 2:7-8  Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving.

Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. 

Zoe- The Life of God



​Christianity is not a religion. Its divinity alive in humanity.

Zoe life in a man. Zoe life, life as God has it.

English lacked a better word and called it Eternal/everlasting Life. This created a mentality of a loooooooong life. Longevity of life which is also correct.

Its more than the quantity and longevity of life. It is the QUALITY of the FULLNESS OF GOD! The totality of deity.

Life that can never be corrupted, not by sin, not by sickness, not by anything.

Not even hell fire can corrupt it. In fact, if a man with this kind of life enters hell, He’ll quench the fire.

It is the Highest Life.

A man with this Zoe life is a threat to the kingdom of darkness.

In it is the completeness of God. This is the life that overcomes the world. It is the God-Class life.

I say you are gods.

David saw this coming…

Psalms 82: 6  I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High.

Jesus repeated it in John 10: 34  Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods?

This he said after he had blew the minds of the Jews with this statement…

John 10: 30  

I and my Father are one.
 31  Then the Jews took up stones again to stone him.
The guys got furious with Him and wanted to stone Him.

Hallelujah

When you understand what this Zoe life entails, you will make bold statements that will drive religious minds crazy.

I am Holy

I am the Righteousness of God

I am eternal

I am born of God

I am from above

I am Christ

I am a god

I am blessed

I and my Father and Christ are one

I am a saint
This is Eternal Life. ZOE!!!

ABRAHAM’S SEED



​Abraham’s Seed.

Gen 12:1-3, 7

God called Abram to make a Covenant with Him.

God is the initiator of Covenants. 

He made promises to Abram to bless him and make him great. 

That in him all families of the earth be blessed.

He also promised greatness to his seed.
Gen 13:14-16

God again promises to make Abram’s seed great in the land. And to multiply his seed as the dust. This referred to his physical earthly seed.
Gen 15:

Abram was still worried about his immediate heir. 

God promised him a physical heir born from his bowels.

After that God led him and showed him the stars.

He promised him a seed as many as the stars.

This represented the glorious heavenly seed.

This seed was Christ.

At this juncture Abram believed the gospel of the seed and it was counted to him for righteousness.
Gen 17:1-8

God established the covenant with Abram.

He changed his name from Abram to Abraham.

He promised to make Him father of nations.

He promised to make an everlasting covenant with him and his seed.

The promises were made to Abraham and His seed in a covenant.

Circumcision was given as the sign for the covenant. 

This covenant was a promise Covenant.
For all the years, this is what the children of Israel enjoyed. They lived with and in the brackets of this promise.
Galatians 3:19, 17

Because of their rebellion and transgressions, the law which was not God’s initial plan was added.

The law did not nullify the promise covenant.
Everyone born in the lineage of Abraham enjoyed the blessings in this covenant.

But remember God had promised to include all nations of the world and bless them in Abraham through his seed and to make them one.
Matthew 1:1 Jesus Christ was born in the lineage of Abraham as his physical seed.

Galatians 4:4-5.

To the Jews who were already Abraham’s seed, He would deliver them from the law which they had subjected themselves to.
For us gentiles, he was to include us to the Abrahamic family.
Galatians 3

Just as Abraham did nothing but only believed in the promised seed, so do we. It is not by the works of the law for we even were not part of it.

Verse 7 They which are of faith are the children of Abraham.
Eph 2:15 The enemity wall between the Jews and the gentiles was destroyed by Christ.  
Galatians 3:9

God does not bless individuals, He pronounces the blessing in a covenant environment. It was the Abrahamic promise covenant blessing that was running all through Isaac, Jacob and the entire Israel family. Today we are living in the fulfilment of Abrahamic promise covenant. This blessing is now fulfilled in the New covenant through the blood of Jesus.

We cannot claim blessings as individuals, the covenant environment is In Christ. If you are in Christ, you are in the blessed environment.
Gal 3:13 He was made a curse to redeem the already physical Seed of Abraham from the curse of the law.

Note: they were already blessed in Abraham but had put themselves under a curse by the law.
Gal 3:14 the blessing of Abraham comes to the gentiles through Jesus Christ.
Gal 3:16  Christ is the Abraham’s Seed unto which the promise was made.
No promise was made to us, no blessing for us. We have been made partakers in Christ, Abraham’s seed.
2Cor 1:20 All the promises have been fulfilled in Christ.

Gal 3:18, Col 1:12, Eph 1:18

we don’t live in the promises but in the inheritance.
Gal 3:22-23 Though the law had kept the Jews from faith as the original means of justification, it was revealed in Christ after he fulfilled all the law.
Gal 3:26-29

We now are all children of God by faith. 

Both the Jews and the gentiles are now all one in Christ.

We now have been baptised in Christ and put on Christ.

We all are Abraham’s Seed and Heirs according to promise.

We are not living in the promises but as heirs according to promise.
Romans 4:11-13

No circumcision is needed now. Abraham is the father of all who believe in Christ through the righteousness of faith.

We are heirs of the world.

Christ is blessed as Abraham’s seed; We are in him blessed.

Christ is prospered as Abraham’s seed; we are in Him prospered.

He is Kings as Abraham’s seed; we are kings in Him.
We are Abraham’s seed in Christ.

Halleluyah!
