Part of that spiritual growth with the Lord and His Word can be received today in this ministry on the Epistle to the Galatians.
What does the word epistle mean?
The word epistle means a formal letter. In this case the Apostle Paul wrote this letter to the churches in the area of Galatia so it was to a group of churches.
You can tell from the title of this ministry on Galatians that is deals with an intense question about how a person gets right with God. “EPISTLE OF GALATIANS-YOU ARE JUSTIFIED BY GRACE THROUGH FAITH.”
However this is not the only issue that Galatians deals with and although I will not comment on each verse in Galatians I will comment on those that I believe the Spirit of God would have me highlight in this ministry.
Galatians was written by the Apostle Paul in 49 AD.
By the way 49AD does not means 49 years after the death of Jesus Christ on the cross like some people think.
AD actually comes from a Latin word “Anno Domini” meaning “in the year of our Lord” referring to the year of Jesus Christ’s birth.
So now you have some background on the Epistle of Galatians and that helps you to better understand what is being said in the Epistle by the Apostle Paul.
I feel like I also need to make this statement about this Epistle and all 66 books of the Bible.
Although the authors of the 66 books of the Bible did write the Word of God it did not originate with man. These men of God were moved on by the Holy Spirit and they penned what the Holy Spirit told them to write allowing some of the men’s personality to come through the writings.
“Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.” 2 Peter 1:20-21
The Apostle Paul starts out the Epistle of Galatians by establishing his authority as an Apostle:
"Paul, an apostle, (not of men, neither by man, but by Jesus Christ, and God the Father, who raised him from the dead.)" Galatians 1:1
The reason why the Apostle Paul went through such an introduction of himself is because he ministered in Galatia about how mankind can receive Jesus Christ by His grace and the people’s faith. Therefore a group of people in the area called Judaizers believed you had to have God’s grace to be born again but ALSO needed to obey the Mosaic Law and be circumcised.
So the Judaizers believed to be right with God, to be born again, you had to have a combination of God’s grace and WORKS.
This whole study on the Epistle of the Galatians revolves around this error of the Jujaizers telling the new converts to the New Testament Church that what the Apostle Paul was telling the people that they could be saved by God’s GRACE and FAITH alone without works, was not correct.
Satan did not waste any time in trying to bring confusion to the New Testament church so satan worked through these spiritually ignorant Judaizers.
"Grace to you and peace from God the Father, and from our Lord Jesus Christ." Galatians 1:3
This became a common greeting from the Apostle Paul’s writings.
“Who gave Himself for our sins, that He might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father.” Galatians 1:4
The Apostle Paul immediately gets to the powerful and truthful statement that we as mankind need a Savior and His name is Jesus Christ. Paul states that Jesus Christ is our deliverer from this evil world and that He came to this earth by the will of God the Father.
Next we see the utter frustration that the Apostle Paul feels toward the new converts he had made in Galatia as he wrote this. I want to use the NLT translation for this statement as it uses such common language that we would use:
“I am shocked that you are turning away so soon from God, who called you to Himself through the loving mercy of Christ. You are following a different way that pretends to be the Good News (The Gospel) but is not the Good News at all. You are being fooled by those who deliberately twist the truth concerning Christ.” Galatians 1:6-7 NLT
Let’s look at this situation for a moment.
Can you imagine that you have gone out into your neighborhood and have led people to the Lord? You have shared the Word of God with those people, you have poured out the compassion of the Lord that is in you and then all of your effort is being twisted and challenged by some individuals who are preaching a false doctrine?
The result of that false doctrine is that now the ones you have led to the Lord are in confusion and doubt that what you originally told them is correct and is from God?
I would be upset and you would too.
Satan is the author of deception (lies) and confusion. 1 Corinthians 14:33
The Apostle Paul then wrote this Epistle (letter) to the churches of Galatia to try to deal with this problem that the Judiazers started among the new converts. The Apostle Paul reminds them that what they did to receive the Lord as their Savior was the truth, no works of man needed to be added to it to get right with the Lord.
Satan wanted to attack the New Testament Church especially in its infancy so the Word of God would be distorted from the start. Fortunately the Word of God came back from the Apostle Paul in this letter to assure them that what they had received was the new birth and nothing more needed to be done to receive it.
Then the Apostle Paul makes a very bold but true statement to the Galatian churches that would hopefully remind them that they already received the truth of God’s Word and not to be shaken again by anyone concerning their faith in Jesus Christ:
“But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.” Galatians 1:8
When the Apostle Paul said let those Judaizers or anyone else that preaches a false doctrine to you be accursed he was saying “anathema” which means that one lies under the curse of God, and is doomed to destruction and will receive God’s wrath and damnation.
It a very serious thing to God for someone to deceive Christians with false doctrine but it is especially serious to the Lord when they are new Christians.
In the Gospel of Matthew Jesus calls these new believers “little ones.” "But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged around his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea." Matthew 18:7
This means whoever will deceive a child or a new believer (a new child in faith) that person will receive the wrath of God upon their life.
If that is not a strong statement about what will happen to people that try to deceive a child or new Christians I don’t know what is?
“But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached of me is not after man. For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ.” Galatians 1:11-12
The Apostle Paul was saying what I shared with you Galatians did not come out of my head but it came out of the heart of God and I spoke what the Holy Spirit told me to speak.
Then the Apostle Paul goes back when he was called Saul of Tarsus and persecuted the New Testament Church by killing converts, i.e. Stephen who Paul (formerly Saul of Tarsus) held the coats of the men who killed Stephen by stoning him as Saul of Tarsus gave the orders to kill him. Galatians 1:13-14
Then Paul shifts to his great conversion on the Road to Damascus when the Lord appeared to him in a vision and Saul of Tarsus gave his life to the Lord and his name was changed to Paul. Galatians 1:15-24
The conversion of the Apostle Paul is one of the greatest conversions recorded in God’s Word. The Apostle Paul formerly known as Saul of Tarsus was a terrorist in his day.
After the Apostle Paul’s conversion satan could not use him anymore to kill members of the New Testament Church as now he was leading people to Christ rather than killing Christians who came to Christ.
So now satan in trying to destroy the New Testament Church finds Judiazers who were deceived by satan to try to destroy the faith of new believers.
However the Good News is that satan has never nor will ever be able to destroy the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ. In fact the New Testament Church is growing around the world with rapid growth even in other religions of the world at this present time.

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: email@example.com 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?
This includes the ones that not able to go to church because of disabilities and sickness or for one reason or another can’t attend church. Can you imagine how this Word of God would bless and comfort them? Please share this website with these folks also.
