Welcome to cfmministry.org as we continue with the Book of Galatians you would think the question above has been resolved by now but unfortunately it has not in the minds of many.
Unfortunately all Christian religions have also had a hand in this because rather than accepting the Word of God as the final Word they get together in their “groups” and say if you are going to belong to us you need to do this or that rather than letting the Bible be the plumb line for all our decisions.
Nita and I hope that you will share this website with someone else that you know that could also be blessed in their life with the Word of God.
Let’s continue with the Apostle Paul’s Epistle (meaning letter) to the Galatians:
“You foolish Galatians! Who has bewitched you? Before your very eyes Jesus Christ was clearly portrayed as crucified. I would like to learn just one thing from you. Did you receive the Spirit by the works of the law, or by believing what you heard? Are you so foolish? After beginning by means of the Spirit, are you now trying to finish by means of the flesh? Galatians 3:1-3 NIV
Through these verses you can hear the utter frustration of the Apostle of Paul. After he led many of the Galatians to the Lord as they accepted Jesus Christ as their Savior through their spirit and now they have been deceived through the Judaizers (Old Testament Jews) into believing that they need to resort to works of the flesh to be right with God.
Maybe you have experienced that in your Christian walk? There was a point in your life that you accepted the Lord through His grace and the faith the Lord gave you and now you have been around people who seem to have a religion all of their own and you have been confused and deceived by their teachings that does not line up with the Word of God?
Such was the case with the new Galatians Christians.
Satan will always try to use people to derail and confuse new Christians as they are the most vulnerable.
“Have you experienced so much in vain – if it really was in vain? So again I ask, does God give you His Spirit and work miracles among you by the works of the law, or by your believing what you heard? So also Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness.” Galatians 3:4-6 NIV
Paul is questioning the Galatians to think about how they got saved in the first place. He reminds them that they experienced miracles from the Lord the greatest of which is the new birth that they had already received.
There is no greater miracle than when you are born again. It takes your life that is full of sin and separated from God because of that sin and at the new birth the Spirit of the Living God forgives your sins by washing you with the Precious blood of Jesus Christ and now He lives in your spirit. You have experienced spiritual death to spiritual life in Christ Jesus.
Paul used Abraham as an example and even though he could not be born again in the Old Testament because Jesus had not gone to the cross and taken the sins of all mankind yet and then rose from the grave Abraham believed God and it was counted unto him as righteousness by God.
“Understand, then, that those who have faith are children of Abraham.” Galatians 3:7 NIV
“For all who rely on the works of the law are under a curse, as it is written: “Cursed is everyone who does not continue to do everything written in the Book of the Law. Galatians 3:10 NIV
To try to follow the law and be right with Jesus Christ in this New Testament time just as the Galatians were in the New Testament time is a case of frustration. For one thing no one has ever been able to keep the law referring to the Old Testament and the 10 commandments in particular other than Jesus Christ.
To break even one point of the law is to break all of them.
That’s why we need the Spirit of God at the new birth to help us live the Christian life.
To be involved in the Old Testament Law is a case in futility.
“Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us, for it is written: “Cursed is everyone who is hung on a pole. He redeemed us in order that the blessing given to Abraham might come to the Gentiles through Christ Jesus, so that by faith we might receive the promise of the Spirit.” See Galatians 3:13-14 NIV
When it says Christ redeemed us, redeemed means to be bought back with a price. When Jesus was crucified His death (spiritually and physically) bought us back to a place where we can be right with Jesus Christ by accepting Him as our personal Savior.
Jesus Christ ALREADY paid the price of man’s sin against God now we need to accept Jesus Christ as our Savior and Lord.
The ultimate curse of the law is that no one has ever been able to keep the law with the exception of Jesus Christ. To break one commandment is to break all of them. It requires perfection and only Jesus Christ achieved that perfection.
The whole Old Testament shouts out to mankind that we need a Savior as you will not be able to keep the law. It is only through Jesus Christ and His righteousness in us that we become righteous.
Righteous means right standing with God.
“Brothers and sisters, let me take an example from everyday life. Just as no one can set aside or add to a human covenant (solemn agreement) that has been duly established, so it is in this case. The promises were spoken to Abraham and to his seed. Scripture does not say “and to seeds,” meaning many people, but “and to your seed,” meaning one person, who is Christ. What I mean is this: The law, introduced 430 years later (by God to Moses) does not set aside the covenant previously established by God and thus do away with the promise. For if inheritance depends on the law, then it no longer depends on the promise; but God in His grace gave it to Abraham through a promise.” Galatians 3:15-18 NIV
Humans cannot change the agreement that God previously had with Abraham that He would bless him and his offspring in every area of their life.
When God made the covenant with Abraham He made it to him and His Seed which was Jesus Christ as the seed that came from Abraham was Jesus Christ. Genesis 12:1-3 and Genesis 22:18
If you have received Christ as your Savior you have also received the blessings of Abraham as now through Christ you are part of Abraham’s seed and heir according to the promise. Galatians 3:29
We have to remember that the law was only temporary from Moses to Jesus Christ in the New Testament. But God’s promises are eternal and cannot be changed.
“Why, then, was the law given at all? It was added because of transgressions until the Seed to whom the promise referred had come (Jesus Christ). The law was given through angels and entrusted to a mediator. A mediator, however implies more than one party, but God is one.” Galatians 3:19-20 NIV
The Pharisees thought that by keeping the law they would have favor with God. But Paul repeatedly opposed that idea telling all people that the law was to demonstrate our weakness Galatians 3:21 and our sinfulness Galatians 3:19 and drives us to Christ Galatians 3:22-25.
In the Old Testament man could not get removal of their sin it was only covered each time they offered the proper animal sacrifice as advised by the Lord.
One of the many blessed benefits we receive in the New Testament is that when we come to the Lord in earnest to ask for forgiveness of sin, our sins are not covered by animal sacrifices as in the Old Testament instead they are remitted by the Lord which means they are wiped away as though they never existed.
Glory be to the Lord!!!
“Before the coming of this faith, we were held in custody under the law, locked up until the faith that was to come would be revealed. So the law was our guardian until Christ came that we might be justified by faith. Now that this faith has come, we are no longer under a guardian. Galatians 3:23-25 NIV
The faith that was to come was Christ. That faith meant faith in Him and His Word and what He has done for us.
The KJV version of the Bible says that the law was our schoolmaster to bring us to Christ.
The Old Testament shows us that it was a temporary plan (a schoolmaster) by God until He sent His Son Jesus Christ to this earth to usher in a better covenant established on better principles which is the New Testament.
“So in Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith, for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. IF YOU BELONG TO CHRIST, THEN YOU ARE ABRAHAM’S SEED, AND HEIRS ACCORDING TO THE PROMISE.” Galatians 3:26-29 NIV
When you become born again you are children of the Most High God. Some people get this statement misunderstood. To be born into this world you are a CREATION of God BUT UNTIL AND UNLESS YOU ARE BORN AGAIN YOU ARE NOT A CHILD OF GOD. THERE IS A HUGE DIFFERENCE.
John 3:3 NIV states: “Jesus replied, very truly I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again.”
When Galatians 3:27 talks about being baptized into Christ it is not referring to water baptism but instead refers to a CLEANSING and that cleansing can never be done by water baptism. Instead it is a heartfelt decision to make Jesus Christ your Savior by inviting Him into your life as a confession of your faith in Him and then He is the one that does the cleansing of your life not water baptism.
When a person is water baptized they are showing ceremonially that they have ALREADY accepted Christ as their Savior and the water baptism is SYMBOLIC of the new birth they have ALREADY received. Please see Romans !0:9-10.
Galatians 3:28 shows that God does not favor one person above another we are all the same in Christ.
Then in Galatians 3:28 we see that if you belong to Christ then you are part of Abraham’s seed, and the many blessings that Abraham received from God. You have become an heir to those blessings through you new life in Jesus Christ.
We hope that today’s ministry has helped you understand some areas of who you are in Christ and the difference between the law and grace and faith.
Remember you cannot believe in what you do not know and have a revelation of. That revelation comes to you through asking wisdom from the Lord. James 1:5-8

We are involved in our ministry on an international level and also will be continuing to minister at churches as we are led to go to these churches in the United States.
On Tuesday October 27, 2015 the Spirit of God gave me a dream about a very large amount of people that I was ministering to. It seemed they were from different parts of the world. As I ministered to them I told them that WORLD WIDE REVIVAL was coming and that it would touch everyone on the face of the earth.
Every time I would say something to this huge crowd of people there would come a shout of excitement from them. But as I looked over to my right there was a man who I got eye contact with and I said this to him as we looked at each other. I told that man, whoever he was, that it was even going to affect him even though he would try to resist it.
And then I woke up.
Nita and I knew then and now that it was a dream from the Spirit of God and that He had called Nita and me to be part of this END TIME WORLD WIDE REVIVAL.
Since then I have ministered on revival in meetings and conversations I have had with other churches around the world.
JESUS SAID, “SAY NOT YE, THERE ARE YET FOUR MONTHS, AND THEM COMETH HARVEST? BEHOLD, I SAY UNTO YOU, LIFT UP YOUR EYES, AND LOOK ON THE FIELDS; FOR THEY ARE WHITE ALREADY TO HARVEST.” JOHN 4:35
Mankind has a tendency to push revival back to sometime in the future.
REVIVAL, REVIVAL, REVIVAL. (NOW, NOW, NOW).
“AS GOD’S PARTNERS, WE BEG YOU NOT TO ACCEPT THIS MARVELOUS GIFT OF GOD’S KINDNESS AND THEN IGNORE IT. FOR GOD SAYS, AT JUST THE RIGHT TIME, I HEARD YOU. ON THE DAY OF SALVATION I HELPED YOU.” 2 Corinthians 6:1-2, NEW LIVING TRANSLATION. INDEED THE “RIGHT TIME” IS NOW. TODAY IS THE DAY OF SALVATION.”
We are spreading the Word of God around the world as the Holy Spirit leads us to new areas in an ever increasing amount.
For you ministers or leaders of groups you can contact us for ministering in your church at: G Mail:
If you have come to this ministry website today and have never asked Jesus Christ to come into your life and be born again, you are not here by accident, the Spirit of the Living God drew you here.
If you do not have the assurance of where you would spend eternity if you died right now please go to the top of this website and it will have a tab for “SALVATION.” In that tab will be what is required by God to be right with Him. When you pray that prayer and accept the Lord please send us a Gmail to our website at: firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know that you accepted the Lord as your Savior and Lord and were born again. We want to rejoice with you and pray for you. Thank you (Please look up these scriptures: John 3:3 and Romans 10:9-10 it talks about you being born again).
Surely you know people who are going through hell and high water with real battles in their life both Christians and those that are not born again Christians. The Word of God that is presented each week will help turn their situation around if they do the Word of God and instead of the anguish and tears will bring a smile and victory to their life, isn’t that worth you sharing this website with others?
