Thou Shalt Not Bear False Witness

Against Thy Neighbour.

Exodus 20:16

and

Neither Shalt Thou Bear False Witness

Against Thy Neighbour.

Deuteronomy 5:20

In the English Bible of our KJV both Exo_20:16 and Deu_5:20, seem to be identical with the exception of the first 3 words of the forbidance. Yet in the Hebrew, there is one more noticeable difference than the arrangement of the negative command, and that is the word translated ‘False’.

In the prior and related compilation study of this same series on the Common Law of GOD, pt 2. the 3rd Commandment regarding taking ‘YHWH’s Name in Vain’ has covered these words to be discussed and how they are related as part and parcel to the understanding of this 9th Commandment, it is evident that without having a firm grasp on the falsity and vanity of the violation of the 3rd Commandment, the actual and literal understanding of the violation against the 9th Commandment contained in sinful treatment of one’s neighbor in somewhat incomprehensible. So it is that some information contained in the message relayed from the 3rd Commandment will be repeated in this compilation as well, yet for a more comprehensive understanding of this Law of God particularly, I would ask that one first listen to the 2nd part of this series which regards the 3rd Commandments. (The Common Law pt.2 LINK)

Before getting in to the 2 Hebrew words of focus and more importantly their meaning and then effect upon the Common-Wealth in their violation and in their keeping; one word, which is actually a prefix on the Hebrew word ‘neighbor’, is the word ‘against’, bear a false witness ‘against thy neighbor’. Some have supposed this Commandment to only disallow falsification of witness in the negative affect, against a neighbor, that is to damn thy neighbor, to bring a false witness against ones neighbor, in a court room setting, as in to bring a charge against him, yet this application is contrary to biblical context, as to be provided. The Hebrew word for ‘against’, as translated in the KJV is simply the prefix of the letter ‘B’ to the word neighbor, ‘B’ also is translated and means ‘to, unto, near, by, beside, before’ , the prefix represents the Idea of closeness, it as per holistic scriptural context is not limiting the 9th Commandment to a negative witness by falsehood in a court setting or in a setting of accusation of judgment, rather it is the general bearing of a falsehood ‘to, unto or by’ ones neighbor, the Idea of bringing falsehood to him in any way…un-discript. As well the very word witness implies Truth, as a thing certainly known.

An Illustration in Allegory

When Breading False with Witness,

Witness is always Forced!

The Common-Wealth of Israel is to guard against Falsehood in it’s Common Law, which therefore imposes it’s self upon the citizenry and society as a thing common within the action’s between neighbor to neighbor, the Idea of excepted falsity amid neighbors or friends in general conversation, in simple and mindless lying I wish to dispelled by an illustration to show how falsity is a repugnant standard by which to live, as it is a standard of destruction that will hereby allow vanity to rule the Nation from it’s Justice system down, then from it’s children upward in it’s natural order; Falsehood and Witness are two opposing creatures that have the ability to mate,albeit only in the captivity of ones mind, yet they shall bring forth fruit in the world.

After the vain Idol of falsehood is bowed to, by the committing of adultery by False with Witness , the half bred of in-absolute and meaningless conversation shall be begat for 3 to 4 generations, insomuch as this iniquity will pervade to the utmost: into the law and the covenant of the very Common-Wealth it was codified to preserve: In a society created to be seated upon God’s Word these mongrels will be paraded as legitimate, the bastard will thereby fulfill it’s own destiny by replacing the true, perfect and purified Law of God with it’s own dynastic equivalent in destructive force in opposition to the Law which sought to give life. The wage of Sin shall be payed, and the unfortunate truth is that it is only those who will not kissed that Idol or bowed to it’s likeness that will realize it’s father is Falsehood and that Witness had been taken by force, Justice has been perverted!

This is the state we look at in this situation, this is the importance of the establishment of the Common-Wealth of Israel to be seated on the Law of God which persists by the Holy Spirit of Truth and Wisdom.

The Two 

Forms of Realistic Falsehood

VAIN & SIQ

Consider:

In the commandments:

In Exodus the Hebrew word שׁקר׃ / SiQuR H8267 is translated false

לא / no תענה /shalt thou bear ברעך / against thy neighbor. עד /witness שׁקר׃H8267 false

In Deuteronomy the Hebrew word is שׁוא׃ / SUA H7723 is translated false

ולא / Neither תענהH6030 shalt thou bear ברעך /against thy neighbor. עד / witness שׁוא׃H7723 false

While both words are acceptable translations to the word false in English, the reason the language varies is because we are meant to learn the compound or dual spirit of these letters, as YHWH had both words used it is so that those who are called by His Name may ask Him what it is we should not do, that we may please him by our lives and our society.

As in the discussion of any law, the construct of the wording is important as to it’s intent, an intent that Israel is intended to understand.

Biblical Context

The only verses in the Pentateuch Law where the Hebrew word שׁוא / SUA (H7723 ) translated in Deu_5:20 as ‘False’ is found is in the following verses beside: Exo_20:7; Deu_5:11 3rd Commandment,

As well we have context and case, to help in:

Exo_23:1 Thou shalt not raise a false report: put not thine hand with the wicked to be an unrighteous witness.

Again the word SUA from Exodus 20:7, the 3rd Commandment is found translated ‘False’, while the context seems to be that of the 9th Commandment dealing with a the ‘false report’ of a ‘false witness’.

Venturing out side of the Pentateuch for context consider the substantiation of this word meaning ‘vain or empty’

Job 15:31 Let not him that is deceived trust in vanity: for vanity shall be his recompence.

 

Psa 12:1-2 Help, LORD; for the godly man ceaseth; for the faithful fail from among the children of men.

They speak vanity every one with his neighbour: with flattering lips and with a double heart do they speak.

God’s Word in opposition to the context:

Psa 12:6 The words of YHWH are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.

The form of false witness being referenced in Deuteronomy 5:20, as indicated by the word SUA is not identical to the form represented in Exodus 20:17, as indicated by the word SiQuR.

SUA refers to the type of falsehood which is vain, empty, mindless, ignorant, aimless: An example at law of this understanding is sited by Noah Webster as ‘ignoramus’: An ignorant person; a vain pretender to knowledge. , suitingly it could be described as ‘lying just to lie’, truly vain words.

While when dealing with the word found in Exodus: SiQuR and it’s related words refer to the same falsity of the witness, that is in it’s quality as being untrue, yet it indicates false intent, filled with falsehood for a reason, mindfully false, knowledgeably incorrect, aimed at injustice

Hebrew root SiQ is found a number of times in the Law, also dealing with these ‘ false matters ‘

Exo_23:7 Keep thee far from a false matter

(that is literally: ‘ Of words that are false (SiQuR) be far from’)

Of testifying falsely

Bearing  Falsity 

 

Deu_19:18 And the judges shall make diligent inquisition: and, behold, if the witness be a false witness, and hath testified falsely against his brother;

Deu 19:19 Then shall ye do unto him, as he had thought to have done unto his brother: so shalt thou put the evil away from among you.

Above the word SiQuR is used both times for the word false, and as well the same word translated in the Commandment as ‘bear’, is here translated ‘testified’.

A good example of the context of both the 3rd and 9th commandment may be seen in

Lev_19:11 Ye shall not steal, neither deal falsely, neither lie(SiQuR-H8266) one to another.

Lev_19:12 And ye shall not swear by my name falsely,(SiQuR- H8267), neither shalt thou profane the name of thy God: I am the LORD.

Lev 19:13 Thou shalt not defraud (O-SiQH6231) thy neighbour, neither rob him: the wages of him that is hired shall not abide with thee all night until the morning.

This small but weighty substantiated arrangement of evidence from scripture shows the meaning of both aspects of the 9th Commandment and it’s use of the both the Hebrew word SUA referencing ‘Vain matters’ and that of SiQeR matters (pun intended), that is falsity with intent. Remember both aspects of this Commandment reference willful sin, that is to do so knowingly, even the falsehood which speaks to the idea of ignorance, the sinner bears a willfully: ignorant, vain, empty, careless, mindless ‘witness’ or ‘matter’, in ‘words’ : written or spoken. While the more sick idea to our morality is the idea of matters which we know to be false and perhaps have premeditated the effect of it’s witness, matters or words.

THE

CHRISTIAN WITNESS

Can Not Be

FALSE OR VAIN

In other words, when those who are Called by the LORD YHWH’s Name, those who claim the blood of the covenant to be written upon them, by the precious name of Jesu(s) Christ, that is as a Christian, when they speak to a matter is should neither be vain or false, the words which we speak as part of the common-wealth of Israel that is as joint heirs with Christ of His Kingdom, should be true words, pure words, words and witnesses and testimonies which have been tried and found to have substance: This would indicate particularly in matters of trial or judgment before a governing authority ordained by YHWH God, yet not limited to such, as the Commandment is not only focusing upon a witness in a court but in the witness of ones mouth, hand and actions as offered to ones neighbor or brother of the Common-Wealth of Israel, that is of his own Nation. There is not one persuasive shred of evidence that witness to the fact or to suggests that it is exceptionable practice of behavior under this 9th Common Law that would allow for fellow Citizen-brothers to practice general lying or vain speech one with the other; in other words the whole command is an admonition towards thoughtful and true dealings with in the common-wealth, brother to brother, neighbor to neighbor from general conversation unto judgment for sin. And as a people called by God’s Name, it behooves us to Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness. And their word will eat as doth a canker… 2Ti_2:15-17 “

Not only when we study the scriptures to give an answer for our Faith, are we to shun the profane and vain babblings, we are to as well have our conversation honest among the Gentiles ( 1Pe_2:12), to be men of honest report, full of the Holy Ghost and wisdom (Act_6:3), Providing for honest things, not only in the sight of the Lord, but also in the sight of men. (2Co_8:21) as our calling by His Name is to walk by Faith, thus every dealing we as members of the Common-Wealth of Israel and as joint heirs with Christ as Christians should convey our honest action which are dictated by our honest Faith, our truthful Faith which leads the brothers of Christ to be a thoughtfully considerate race begotten of the father, that is not a vain, ignorant, mindless, and empty witness of our faith, our hope with in us, by stupidly speaking unsubstantiated matters that we do not have understand on, or witnessing to a thing that by our ignorance on the matter will misrepresent the witness of our faith. As well, in the other form, the SiQR is to bear a falsehood in our witness, that is to turn our hearts to be he that worketh deceit, he that telleth lies, knowing that those who do such shall not dwell in the house of YHWH or tarry in his sight. as says Psa_101:7, to not meddle with falsehood as Pro_17:4 A wicked doer giveth heed to false lips; and a liar giveth ear to a naughty tongue.

It behooves us as those who earnestly desire not to take the Name of our GOD in vain to become the people of His calling who bear no false witness unto our neighbor.

Yet for the Godly we we are told:

Psa_119:104 Through thy precepts I get understanding: therefore I hate every false way.

It is of necessity that those who are called by the Name of YHWH and those who call upon His Name be honest, truthful, wise men and women of an understanding heart and spirit, as far as our cognation allow us to be by our emotional and mental nature.

CHRIST ON AVOIDING EVIL

It is not until after the a fore mentioned aspect of the 3rd and 9th Commandment is brought into focus that it is even appropriate to discuss the subject of: Swearing, Oaths, Vowes, and Judgment, this is because honest and true men are in no need of swearing such an Oath as they in their honest conversation have no need of such, opperating upon the principles of

Num_30:2 If a man vow a vow unto the LORD, or swear an oath to bind his soul with a bond; he shall not break his word, he shall do according to all that proceedeth out of his mouth.

which is well substantiated by our Lord Christ in his teaching in

Mat_5:37 But let your communication be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay: for whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil.

As Christians we are pressed to have simple communication, and direct, for there is no place to swear in any way less than to swear by the name of YHWH when swearing is requiered.

Mat 5:33 Again, ye have heard that it hath been said by them of old time, Thou shalt not forswear thyself, but shalt perform unto the Lord thine oaths:

Mat 5:34 But I say unto you, Swear not at all; neither by heaven; for it is God’s throne:

Mat 5:35 Nor by the earth; for it is his footstool: neither by Jerusalem; for it is the city of the great King.

Mat 5:36 Neither shalt thou swear by thy head, because thou canst not make one hair white or black.

The forgone mention of swearing not at all is specific to the idea of swearing ‘not at all’ by any other thing than upon the name of YHWH as the Law only establishes:

Deu_6:13 Thou shalt fear YHWH thy God, and serve him, and shalt swear by his name

Once Christians are honest

they can start to consider

Judicial Proceedings

As the verses of the Pentateuch and the case examples are reflected upon from Exodus 23, Deuteronomy 19 and Leviticus 19, specific instances of law are seen to directly reference the swearing of brother to brother or neighbor to neighbor, the object of an Oath as taken in the Name of YHWH, the LORD, is evident, as well the swearing of an Oath is part of Judiciary proceedings under certain circumstances. The swearing of an Oath, is a very serious matter, as stated by our Christ, when swearing is required is is due to some form of evil. The swearing in a judicial proceeding is to invoke honesty beyond the standard, it is used as a converse measure to hold a Brother-Citizen to account for the truth or falsity of his testimony, so that the actual incrimination may come from the swearing falsely or lying under Oath, which today is called Perjury. In this instance the man who asserts to know a thing must swear as to His knowledge of the matter as will he who is to defend from the accusation, true or false. The Use of the swearing of an Oath is among the highest forms of Evidence one may produce in a Judiciary setting, as it is first hand witness coupled with the witness of God, by evoking His Name into the matter beyond a common standard it places a multiplied level of guilt upon the one who uses the Name vainly, the act calls ones soul into account beyond the duration of life; the only evidence which is higher is the like in opposition of 2 or 3 witnesses and / or factually substantiated Evidence introduced into the matter contrary to the single witness and his oath.

A Case Example:

Exo_22:7 If a man shall deliver unto his neighbour money or stuff to keep, and it be stolen out of the man’s house; if the thief be found, let him pay double.

Exo 22:8 If the thief be not found, then the master of the house shall be brought unto the judges, to see whether he have put his hand unto his neighbour’s goods.

Exo 22:9 For all manner of trespass, whether it be for ox, for ass, for sheep, for raiment, or for any manner of lost thing, which another challengeth to be his, the cause of both parties shall come before the judges; and whom the judges shall condemn, he shall pay double unto his neighbour.

Exo 22:10 If a man deliver unto his neighbour an ass, or an ox, or a sheep, or any beast, to keep; and it die, or be hurt, or driven away, no man seeing it:

Exo_22:11 Then shall an oath of the LORD be between them both, that he hath not put his hand unto his neighbour’s goods; and the owner of it shall accept thereof, and he shall not make it good.

When either form of falsehood prior discussed, either vainly-ignorant or intentionally-premeditated, the matter must be delineated by a Judicious Elder wise and understanding, and known among the tribe, and in such a case the determined Judgment preordained is:

Deu_19:16 If a false witness rise up against any man to testify against him that which is wrong;

Deu 19:17 Then both the men, between whom the controversy is, shall stand before the LORD, before the priests and the judges, which shall be in those days;

Deu 19:18 And the judges shall make diligent inquisition: and, behold, if the witness be a false witness, and hath testified falsely against his brother;

Deu_19:19 Then shall ye do unto him, as he had thought to have done unto his brother: so shalt thou put the evil away from among you.

Restitution it is always the preferred Judgment to cause Brothers to be reconciled by restitution going forward, in the case of payment, for in the case of one who owes another, there is no damaged party more justified to have restitution than thy who have been wronged. In the event that one has in some form or another found an occasion to repent of a falsehood, the following is prescribed:

Lev_6:2 If a soul sin, and commit a trespass against the LORD, and lie unto his neighbour in that which was delivered him to keep, or in fellowship, or in a thing taken away by violence, or hath deceived his neighbour;

Lev 6:3 Or have found that which was lost, and lieth concerning it, and sweareth falsely; in any of all these that a man doeth, sinning therein:

Lev 6:4 Then it shall be, because he hath sinned, and is guilty, that he shall restore that which he took violently away, or the thing which he hath deceitfully gotten, or that which was delivered him to keep, or the lost thing which he found,

Lev_6:5 Or all that about which he hath sworn falsely; he shall even restore it in the principal, and shall add the fifth part more thereto, and give it unto him to whom it appertaineth, in the day of his trespass offering.

In such a case we see the place of repaying 1/5th of that which was the principal beyond the matter, and beyond this YHWH required an unblemished Ram payed to the priest hood or perhaps it’s estimated value?

In an Ideal Christian society established in brotherhood and good faith this incident would be resolved civilly, and between the two men of what ever the matter was, by simply taking one and the other at His honest word and knowing that neither would defraud, steal or trespass against the other willfully, yet this is not the nature of Men.

Thus when such a controversy arises the decision is ultimate to determine the truth of the matter, and to determine if either Citizen of the Common-Wealth is acting in an un-brotherly way, and to restore such a one by restitution.

The citizen members of the Ecclesia should not be found unworthy to judge the smallest matters…things that pertain to this life?

As the Apostle admonishes: If then ye have judgments of things pertaining to this life, set them to judge who are least esteemed in the church/ecclasia. I speak to your shame. Is it so, that there is not a wise man among you? no, not one that shall be able to judge between his brethren? 1Co_6:1-6

In such a case, Paul’s admonition is for brothers to appeal one to the other first and then to turn to a judge of the Ecclesia, providing the reprimand:

1Co 6:1 Dare any of you, having a matter against another, go to law before the unjust, and not before the saints?..But brother goeth to law with brother, and that before the unbelievers.

1Co 6:7 Now therefore there is utterly a fault among you, because ye go to law one with another. Why do ye not rather take wrong? why do ye not rather suffer yourselves to be defrauded?

1Co 6:8 Nay, ye do wrong, and defraud, and that your brethren.

1Co 6:9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God?

This of course is the case when members of the Ecclesial are living under the principalities and powers of the darkness, and not under a righteous Common-Wealth, and that when the Judge which wields the power of punishment is unGodly.

 

A Single Swearing of Oaths or Vows

That is the Idea of one who swears to do a thing for another before Almighty God.

Multiple examples of men swearing one to the other to preform an action is regarded out side of the perjury prior discussed, and this due to the circumstances and place of who is involved, when for instance an oath is sworn between Abraham and Eliazar as to get a wife of Abraham’s kindred for Isaac to wed, or between Isaac and Amimelech a Oath of peace is made, and beyond the swearing of these Oaths, they show the invocation of God into a matter to establish it beyond the normal for Divine accountability, it as well is an invocation for YHWH’s help in the matter: this too may undoubtedly be the bearing of a false witness in the event of it’s willful disregard or thoughtlessness.

Swearing a Oath to God is a vow:

Also is the matter of a vow, which by biblical definition seems to only indicate an swearing of an Oath or promise to God Himself as to do a thing for Him or to Him, to this Solomon offers excelant advice:

Ecc 5:4 When thou vowest a vow unto God, defer not to pay it; for he hath no pleasure in fools: pay that which thou hast vowed.

Ecc 5:5 Better is it that thou shouldest not vow, than that thou shouldest vow and not pay.

Ecc 5:6 Suffer not thy mouth to cause thy flesh to sin; neither say thou before the angel, that it was an error: wherefore should God be angry at thy voice, and destroy the work of thine hands?

Ecc 5:7 For in the multitude of dreams and many words there are also divers vanities: but fear thou God.

It is a powerful thing to vow a vow to YHWH, as the scriptures evidently bear witness.

 

The Swearing of an Oath by YHWH

is

Called a Covenant

 

Deu_7:6 For thou art an holy people unto the LORD thy God: the LORD thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto himself, above all people that are upon the face of the earth.

Deu 7:7 The LORD did not set his love upon you, nor choose you, because ye were more in number than any people; for ye were the fewest of all people:

Deu 7:8 But because the LORD loved you, and because he would keep the oath which he had sworn unto your fathers, hath the LORD brought you out with a mighty hand, and redeemed you out of the house of bondmen, from the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt.

Deu 7:9 Know therefore that the LORD thy God, he is God, the faithful God, which keepeth covenant and mercy with them that love him and keep his commandments to a thousand generations;

Deu 7:10 And repayeth them that hate him to their face, to destroy them: he will not be slack to him that hateth him, he will repay him to his face.

What is the (HOLY) SPIRIT Pt.3

Compiled by JS LOWTHER

Before moving directly into the subject of the Holy Spirit and it’s role in the Apostolic and it’s continuance to date, Let us first discuss one of the most impressive actions accredited to the Holy Spirit, our Lord and Saviors connection to this Spirit that has been heretofore defined.

Concerning his birth and conception that it was on this wise: Mat_1:18-20 his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost…. and for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost.

Luke the Physician tells:

Luk_1:31 And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS.

Luk 1:32 He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David:

Luk 1:33 And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.

Luk 1:34 Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man?

Luk 1:35 And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.

So Christ our Lord was indeed conceived of a very familiar entity we have now come to understand and know, ones whose sole function is particularly said to help us be come reformed, renewed, forgiven, endow with wisdom, knowledge and understanding, a Spirit which dispels darkness, void and chaos, this is the Father’s Spirit, this is the very essence which over shadowed Marym the virgin betrothed to Joseph and this son of God is undoubtedly the Lord and Christ of PS 2 & 110 and thus Acts 2 as well, He is Lord and Christ, King of Israel.

Of this Son of God John the Baptist Said:

Joh 3:31 He that cometh from above is above all: he that is of the earth is earthly, and speaketh of the earth: he that cometh from heaven is above all.

Joh 3:32 And what he hath seen and heard, that he testifieth; and no man receiveth his testimony.

Joh 3:33 He that hath received his testimony hath set to his seal that God is true.

Joh 3:34 For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God: for God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto him.

Joh 3:35 The Father loveth the Son, and hath given all things into his hand.

The practicality of this Biblical testimony is that Christians are called to be joint heirs and Sons of God with Christ, and that the Congregation of the LORD YHWH, which is his Church ecclesia is His body, the Church in it’s biblicaly realistic function is to be the body of Christ on earth officiating Christ’s rule via his father’s law as Christ is at the right hand in heaven. Christ is the King of Kings and Lord of Lords, his thrown gives him rights to the earth as of a foot stool, a foot stool that Psalm 110:1 tells us to be full of enemies.

In order for the Church of Israel to be efficient at such duties the Spirit of our LORD must indwell in us and find an Adoptive state in our heart, mind and soul…again, a renewal, a reformation which leads to eternal life.

Consider Christ’s teachings on the function of the Spirit to come:

Joh_14:12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.

Joh 14:13 And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.

Joh 14:14 If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.

Joh 14:15 If ye love me, keep my commandments.

Joh 14:16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;

Joh 14:17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.

Joh 14:18 I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.

Joh 14:19 Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also.

Joh 14:20 At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you.

Joh 14:21 He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.

Joh 14:22 Judas saith unto him, not Iscariot, Lord, how is it that thou wilt manifest thyself unto us, and not unto the world?

Joh 14:23 Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.

Joh 14:24 He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father’s which sent me.

Joh 14:25 These things have I spoken unto you, being yet present with you.

Joh 14:26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

Very important in seeing the function of the Holy Spirit and it’s undeviated, lineal connection to the pre Manifestation era…

Joh 15:26 But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me:

Joh 15:27 And ye also shall bear witness, because ye have been with me from the beginning.

Joh 16:7 Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.

Joh 16:8 And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:

Joh 16:9 Of sin, because they believe not on me;

Joh 16:10 Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more;

Joh 16:11 Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged.

Joh 16:12 I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now.

Joh 16:13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.

Joh 16:14 He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you.

Joh 16:15 All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine, and shall shew it unto you.

Christ is offering his ambassadors / apostles a place in his glory, at the right hand of the father, a place to allow the Holy Spirit, the Comforter the Spirit of truth to work inside the Church to affect the earth.

The Holy Spirit is sent to the Church to use them as channel by which the converted, comforted and renewed Israel may aid in the out pouring of the Spirit upon all flesh.

Functional and Biblically Realistic Christianity has the potential to utilize the portion of the Spirit God has given them, both collective and individual, as gifts to: first the Church it self and secondly to the un-redeemed Nation and untimely the whole earth. but this repentance and renewal must not rest at the pool of baptism or at the weekly service offered by a spokes man, it must overflow in to a river of living water in which men seek to drink from.

1Jn 5:1 Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God: and every one that loveth him that begat loveth him also that is begotten of him.

1Jn 5:2 By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments.

1Jn 5:3 For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.

1Jn 5:4 For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.

1Jn 5:5 Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?

1Jn 5:6 This is he that came by water and blood, even Jesus Christ; not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit that beareth witness, because the Spirit is truth.

1Jn 5:7 For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.

1Jn 5:8 And there are three that bear witness in earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one.

1Jn 5:9 If we receive the witness of men, the witness of God is greater: for this is the witness of God which he hath testified of his Son.

1Jn 5:10 He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son.

1Jn 5:11 And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.

1Jn 5:12 He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.

1Jn 5:13 These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.

1Jn 5:14 And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us:

1Jn 5:15 And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.

1Jn 5:16 If any man see his brother sin a sin which is not unto death, he shall ask, and he shall give him life for them that sin not unto death. There is a sin unto death: I do not say that he shall pray for it.

1Jn 5:17 All unrighteousness is sin: and there is a sin not unto death.

1Jn 5:18 We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not; but he that is begotten of God keepeth himself, and that wicked one toucheth him not.

1Jn 5:19 And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness.

1Jn 5:20 And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life.

1Jn 5:21 Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen.

It is thus, after repentance and renewal is effected upon the individual the Spirit must have needs to convert skills and arts, labor and knowledge, loves and desire to build the mightiest Kingdom imaginable.

What are Gifts of the Spirit

Part.4

Very much in the same way we are told by Philo and taught by Ex 28-35, Bazaleel, was given gifts by the Holy Spirit to bring about YHWH’s tabernacle on earth as it is in Heaven, as well Moses was given the spirit of wisdom as another gift to teach the people God’s law on earth as it is in Heaven which is properly the law of the kingdom of God. and brings it Light in Jesus Christ and his Lordship as his ambassadors or Apostles:

In this same exact way the Church is given the gifts of the Spirit, a Spirit which as in Genesis takes the darkness and void of the earth …

1Co_12:1 Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I would not have you ignorant.

1Co 12:2 Ye know that ye were Gentiles, carried away unto these dumb idols, even as ye were led.

1Co 12:3 Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man speaking by the Spirit of God calleth Jesus accursed: and that no man can say that Jesus is the Lord, but by the Holy Ghost.

1Co 12:4 Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit.

1Co 12:5 And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord.

1Co 12:6 And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all.

1Co 12:7 But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal.

1Co 12:8 For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit;

1Co 12:9 To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit;

1Co 12:10 To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues:

1Co 12:11 But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will.

1Co 12:12 For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ.

1Co 12:13 For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.

1Co 12:14 For the body is not one member, but many.

1Co 12:15 If the foot shall say, Because I am not the hand, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body?

1Co 12:16 And if the ear shall say, Because I am not the eye, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body?

1Co 12:17 If the whole body were an eye, where were the hearing? If the whole were hearing, where were the smelling?

1Co 12:18 But now hath God set the members every one of them in the body, as it hath pleased him.

1Co 12:19 And if they were all one member, where were the body?

1Co 12:20 But now are they many members, yet but one body.

1Co 12:21 And the eye cannot say unto the hand, I have no need of thee: nor again the head to the feet, I have no need of you.

1Co 12:22 Nay, much more those members of the body, which seem to be more feeble, are necessary:

1Co 12:23 And those members of the body, which we think to be less honourable, upon these we bestow more abundant honour; and our uncomely parts have more abundant comeliness.

1Co 12:24 For our comely parts have no need: but God hath tempered the body together, having given more abundant honour to that part which lacked:

1Co 12:25 That there should be no schism in the body; but that the members should have the same care one for another.

1Co 12:26 And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it.

1Co 12:27 Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular.

1Co 12:28 And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues.

1Co 12:29 Are all apostles? are all prophets? are all teachers? are all workers of miracles?

1Co 12:30 Have all the gifts of healing? do all speak with tongues? do all interpret?

1Co 12:31 But covet earnestly the best gifts: and yet shew I unto you a more excellent way.

1Co 13:1 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.

1Co 13:2 And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.

1Co 13:3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.

1Co 13:4 Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,

1Co 13:5 Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;

1Co 13:6 Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;

1Co 13:7 Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.

1Co 13:8 Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.

1Co 13:9 For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.

1Co 13:10 But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.

1Co 13:11 When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.

1Co 13:12 For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.

1Co 13:13 And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.

1Co 14:1 Follow after charity, and desire spiritual gifts, but rather that ye may prophesy.

1Co 14:2 For he that speaketh in an unknown tongue speaketh not unto men, but unto God: for no man understandeth him; howbeit in the spirit he speaketh mysteries.

1Co 14:3 But he that prophesieth speaketh unto men to edification, and exhortation, and comfort.

1Co 14:4 He that speaketh in an unknown tongue edifieth himself; but he that prophesieth edifieth the church.

1Co 14:5 I would that ye all spake with tongues, but rather that ye prophesied: for greater is he that prophesieth than he that speaketh with tongues, except he interpret, that the church may receive edifying.

1Co 14:6 Now, brethren, if I come unto you speaking with tongues, what shall I profit you, except I shall speak to you either by revelation, or by knowledge, or by prophesying, or by doctrine?

1Co 14:7 And even things without life giving sound, whether pipe or harp, except they give a distinction in the sounds, how shall it be known what is piped or harped?

1Co 14:8 For if the trumpet give an uncertain sound, who shall prepare himself to the battle?

1Co 14:9 So likewise ye, except ye utter by the tongue words easy to be understood, how shall it be known what is spoken? for ye shall speak into the air.

1Co 14:10 There are, it may be, so many kinds of voices in the world, and none of them is without signification.

1Co 14:11 Therefore if I know not the meaning of the voice, I shall be unto him that speaketh a barbarian, and he that speaketh shall be a barbarian unto me.

1Co 14:12 Even so ye, forasmuch as ye are zealous of spiritual gifts, seek that ye may excel to the edifying of the church.

1Co 14:13 Wherefore let him that speaketh in an unknown tongue pray that he may interpret.

1Co 14:14 For if I pray in an unknown tongue, my spirit prayeth, but my understanding is unfruitful.

1Co 14:15 What is it then? I will pray with the spirit, and I will pray with the understanding also: I will sing with the spirit, and I will sing with the understanding also.

1Co 14:16 Else when thou shalt bless with the spirit, how shall he that occupieth the room of the unlearned say Amen at thy giving of thanks, seeing he understandeth not what thou sayest?

1Co 14:17 For thou verily givest thanks well, but the other is not edified.

1Co 14:18 I thank my God, I speak with tongues more than ye all:

1Co 14:19 Yet in the church I had rather speak five words with my understanding, that by my voice I might teach others also, than ten thousand words in an unknown tongue.

1Co 14:20 Brethren, be not children in understanding: howbeit in malice be ye children, but in understanding be men.

1Co 14:21 In the law it is written, With men of other tongues and other lips will I speak unto this people; and yet for all that will they not hear me, saith the Lord.

1Co 14:22 Wherefore tongues are for a sign, not to them that believe, but to them that believe not: but prophesying serveth not for them that believe not, but for them which believe.

1Co 14:23 If therefore the whole church be come together into one place, and all speak with tongues, and there come in those that are unlearned, or unbelievers, will they not say that ye are mad?

1Co 14:24 But if all prophesy, and there come in one that believeth not, or one unlearned, he is convinced of all, he is judged of all:

1Co 14:25 And thus are the secrets of his heart made manifest; and so falling down on his face he will worship God, and report that God is in you of a truth.

1Co 14:26 How is it then, brethren? when ye come together, every one of you hath a psalm, hath a doctrine, hath a tongue, hath a revelation, hath an interpretation. Let all things be done unto edifying.

1Co 14:27 If any man speak in an unknown tongue, let it be by two, or at the most by three, and that by course; and let one interpret.

1Co 14:28 But if there be no interpreter, let him keep silence in the church; and let him speak to himself, and to God.

1Co 14:29 Let the prophets speak two or three, and let the other judge.

1Co 14:30 If any thing be revealed to another that sitteth by, let the first hold his peace.

1Co 14:31 For ye may all prophesy one by one, that all may learn, and all may be comforted.

1Co 14:32 And the spirits of the prophets are subject to the prophets.

1Co 14:33 For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.

1Co 14:34 Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience, as also saith the law.

1Co 14:35 And if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in the church.

1Co 14:36 What? came the word of God out from you? or came it unto you only?

1Co 14:37 If any man think himself to be a prophet, or spiritual, let him acknowledge that the things that I write unto you are the commandments of the Lord.

1Co 14:38 But if any man be ignorant, let him be ignorant.

1Co 14:39 Wherefore, brethren, covet to prophesy, and forbid not to speak with tongues.

1Co 14:40 Let all things be done decently and in order.

(Galatians 3:1-14) …who hath bewitched you, that ye should not obey the truth (…thy law is the truth.-Ps 119:142; …all thy commandments are truth.-Ps 119:151; And the Word was made flesh…full of grace and truth… For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ… the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.- John 1:14-18. – Truth defined by the Scriptures alone make it clear what Paul is speaking of.), before whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been evidently set forth, crucified among you?

This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith (faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.- Heb 11:1; Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.-Revelation 14:12) ?

Are ye so foolish? having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh?… (…the law is spiritual: but I am carnal (flesh), sold under sin. Romans 7:14 …the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit- Romans 8:4.)

For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse: for it is written, Cursed is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them(, and all the people shall say, Amen.- Deut 27:26 – The Hebrew word for Faith is Amen / אמוּן . Paul’s words are no different than Moses’- Deut 30:19: if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live. -Rom 8:13)

(Please read the note’s above carefully, and examine the scripture given in order to define the emboldened words in this portion of Galatians.)

The Galatians have given up the truth and have turned to the flesh. The spirit and the truth are linked, the link is seen consistently in Rom 7:14 & Ps 119:142,151: as the Law’s Commandments; Grace and Truth as well are linked together, as they came by Jesu(s) Christ, the Word made flesh.

Notice the connection between the truth of Psalm 119:142,151 and that which came by Jesu(s) Christ: If David’s synopsis on Truth is accurate then Grace and Truth = Favor and Law: For the New Covenant offers the Grace of God by Forgiveness from sin, transgression and iniquity towards the Law of God and the Law of God written in the heart and mind. The Galatians had therefore turned back to the flesh causing the law to work wrath in their mortal members as the old covenant law of sin and death; having forsaken Grace, Christ’s Forgiveness, they sot to be Justified or made Righteous by their own works; the equivalent would by that they wished to be payed for works, yet their works could not balance out the budget as too much debt had been incurred by sin.

The action of unforgiven law observance with out

Faith / Belief as defined by Scripture are dead works (Heb 6, 9), that is sin, differing none from pagan worship, insomuch as the workman is dead in his sin and not alive in Christ.

For as many as have sinned without law

shall also perish without law:

and as many as have sinned in the law

shall be judged by the law…

(Rom 2:12)

There is no way to escape the law’s judgment but through God’s Grace offered in Christ (John 3:18-21).

Deny yourself, and take up his cross daily, follow Christ,

die daily,

Awake to righteousness, and sin not-

Luke 9:231&Cor15:31-34.

Faith = Belief = Truth = Amen

Paul enters Faith into the discourse at 2:16, making it fully known that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, there was no difference for the law knowing Judeans / Jews by nature and sinners of the Gentiles Galatians, both need Faith in Christ to fulfill righteousness.

(Galatians 3:10-14) For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse: for it is written,

Cursed is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them. (Duet 27:26)

But that no man is justified (Made Righteous) by the law in the sight of God, it is evident:

for, The just shall live by faith. (Habakkuk 2:4)

And the law is not of faith:

but, The man that doeth them shall live in them (Lev 18:5) .

Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written,

Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree (Deut 21:23):

That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.

The Hebraic Greek definition of Faith is found in

Heb 11:1 (seen above), yet Belief is simply Faith in action.

In the KJV Bible the Greek words: pisteuō / πιστεύω is that which is most commonly translated “Faith”, while pistis / πίστις is most commonly translated “Belief / Believe”, both words are however derived from peithō / πείθω a primary verb meaning to convince, persuade or obey.

All three words above are found in the epistle of Galatians and used side by side. The Hebrew logic is well seen in this holistic understanding of Faith, Belief and Persuasion as a Hebrew word most all bible readers know: “Amen”, as can be seen in Strong’s: אמו / #H543-H529.

Amen is said to endorse a statement, “so be it” (Heb 11:1 implies), as well it is the common word used for true, truth and Belief – seen in comparing the Hebrew to the LXX:

Contextual example as sited by Paul:

Gen 15:6- “Abraham believed (#H539 / #G4100)…”, quoted by Paul in Gal 3:6 and refereed to in Rom 3:27 as a ”law of Faith”.

Duet 27:26- “Cursed be he that confirmeth not all the words of this law to do them.

And all the people shall say, Amen(#H543).

The LXX here uses gin-omai-#G1096: generally meaning “so be it” in all tenses. This harmony was well known by the writer of Hebrews 11:3: Through faith (#G4102) we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made (#G1096) of things which do appear.

This understanding of Ginomia- #G1096 is found in the

Let there be…and there was…” statements in the Genesis 1 account found in the LXX.

And God said, Let there be (#G1096) light!

And there was (#G1096) light. (Gen 1:3)

Faith translates into action and becomes so.

In Duet 27 the people who say “Amen” are stating their Belief, Faith and Trust in the Words of God. Is it not therefore the Faithful who shall live by the “Amen-ed” law? and the unfaithful who are cursed by their negligence thereto?

The principle of being Cursed with out Faith has not changed after Christ’s New Covenant else there would be no need for men to believe in Christ’s cursed tree of blessing.

The very simple fact remains in this section of Galatians as in 1John 3:5, Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, this so that we may fulfill the righteousness of the law.

So it is that the law is not of faith, but the doer lives so by

his faith being convinced of his condemnation by the law, he therefore is, or was, a cursed sinner, Yet now by faith Christ has redeemed that sinner with the gift of God, giving him, in the flesh, the ability to serve in the newness of Spirit.

Please consider if faithful Christian shall live in the cursed things below listed?

Here are one of the many laws that are synonymous in Paul’s quotes from the Law in Lev 18 & Deut 27:

Lev 18:8 The nakedness of thy father’s wife shalt thou not uncover…

Deu 27:20 Cursed be he that lieth with his father’s wife…

And all the people shall say, Amen (so be it).

Consider that the most base and simply understood laws will be transgressed if the spoken law of God is not written in the inward parts by love and wrought in our life by faith.

It is reported commonly that there is fornication among you (new Corinthian Church), and such fornication as is not so much as named among the Gentiles, that one should have his father’s wife. And ye are puffed up, and have not rather mourned, that he that hath done this deed might be taken away from among you. (1 Cor 5:1-2)

It is evident that the Faith of Christ is offered to sinners that they may be justified so that they should no longer live the rest of their time in the flesh to the lusts of men, but to the will of God (1Peter 4:2).

By now it should be well seen that the book of Galatians is not to make void the Law, but to establish the law in Faith and under Grace. As an honorable Child listens to his Father on account of Love and Kinship, But the servant listens only on account of debt and servitude: we brethren are called to be Sons and Heirs!

The Just shall live by Faith

Habakkuk 2:4 is quoted four times in the “New Testament” scriptures Rom 1:17; Gal 2:16, 3:11-12; Heb 10:38 and has a consistent lawful message attached every time it is quoted, as should easily be seen in the statement alone, yet in Habakkuk’s situational context it is more so seen:

Why dost thou shew me iniquity, and cause me to behold grievance? for spoiling and violence are before me: and there are that raise up strife and contention. Therefore the law is slacked, and judgment doth never go forth: for the wicked doth compass about the righteous (Just); therefore wrong judgment proceedeth. (Hab1:3-4) …Behold, his soul which is lifted up is not upright in him: but the just shall live by his faith. (2:4)

Coupled with Paul’s context from Lev 18:4-5, “Ye shall do my judgments, and keep mine ordinances, to walk therein: I am YHWH your God. Ye shall therefore keep my statutes, and my judgments: which if a man do, he shall live in them”, the element of precision is added, that the Just live by Faith, those who walk and do God’s laws after the spirit, they shall live in so doing and they who are unjust, who walk after the flesh are Cursed in so doing. The works of the Law with out Faith is imperfect, Faith with out the works of the Law is dead.

(James 2:18-26) Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works… Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar? Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect? And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God.Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only… For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.

Both James and Paul are teaching from Gen 15, both perspectives are True and both are even synonymous, yet Paul is speaking to those who seek justification by works in the law with out Christ and James is speaking to those who are justified by faith in Christ and how Christian Faith is to be wrought with works, for by works faith is made perfect in Christ; Paul’s like message is in Titus 3.

Know therefore that YHWH thy God,

he is God,

the faithful (Heb. Amen / LXX. Pistos) God,

which keepeth covenant

and

mercy with them that love him

and

keep his commandments

to a thousand generations;

And

repayeth them that hate him to their face,

to destroy them:

he will not be slack to him that hateth him,

he will repay him to his face.

(Deuteronomy 7:9-10)

Ex Post Facto

(Galatians 3:15-22) Brethren, I speak after the manner of men; Though it be but a man’s covenant, yet if it be confirmed, no man disannulleth, or addeth thereto. Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ. And this I say, that the covenant, that was confirmed before of God in Christ, the law, which was four hundred and thirty years after, cannot disannul, that it should make the promise of none effect. For if the inheritance be of the law, it is no more of promise: but God gave it to Abraham by promise.

(This very simple manner of man’s law is commonly misunderstood, as it is refereed to as “ex post facto / after the fact” law. In this Context, the Curse of the law which is the repercussions of transgression, as referenced from Deut 27 and Lev 18, were added at the entering in of Israel into the Promised land, the inheritance promised to Abraham in Gen 15, which accompanied the heir which was Christ, the Seed. The law of Moses which was added due to the original transgression can not disannul after the fact of God confirming his covenant with Abraham by promise after it had been made, thus grace or favor as sited in Duet 7. Furthermore, the law of Moses was given to Israel on account of being Abraham’s seed and heir through Isaac according to the covenant of promise. Therefore, Transgression of the law of Moses can not disannul the promise to make it ineffective, nor could following the law make one an heir according to the promise, as inheritance is by descent and the Covenant is established by Grace/Favor.)

die daily,

Awake to righteousness, and sin not-

Luke 9:231&Cor15:31-34.

Faith = Belief = Truth =Amen

Paul enters Faith into the discourse at 2:16, making it fully known that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, there was no difference for the law knowing Judeans / Jews by nature and sinners of the Gentiles Galatians, both need Faith in Christ to fulfill righteousness.

(Galatians 3:10-14) For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse: for it is written,

Cursed is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them. (Duet 27:26)

But that no man is justified (Made Righteous) by the law in the sight of God, it is evident:

for, The just shall live by faith. (Habakkuk 2:4)

And the law is not of faith:

but, The man that doeth them shall live in them (Lev 18:5) .

Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written,

Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree (Deut 21:23):

That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.

The Hebraic Greek definition of Faith is found in

Heb 11:1 (seen above), yet Belief is simply Faith in action.

In the KJV Bible the Greek words: pisteuō / πιστεύω is that which is most commonly translated “Faith”, while pistis / πίστις is most commonly translated “Belief / Believe”, both words are however derived from peithō / πείθω a primary verb meaning to convince, persuade or obey.

All three words above are found in the epistle of Galatians and used side by side. The Hebrew logic is well seen in this holistic understanding of Faith, Belief and Persuasion as a Hebrew word most all bible readers know: “Amen”, as can be seen in Strong’s: אמו / #H543-H529.

Amen is said to endorse a statement, “so be it” (Heb 11:1 implies), as well it is the common word used for true, truth and Belief – seen in comparing the Hebrew to the LXX:

Contextual example as sited by Paul:

Gen 15:6- “Abraham believed (#H539 / #G4100)…”, quoted by Paul in Gal 3:6 and refereed to in Rom 3:27 as a ”law of Faith”.

Duet 27:26- “Cursed be he that confirmeth not all the words of this law to do them.

And all the people shall say, Amen(#H543).

The LXX here uses gin-omai-#G1096: generally meaning “so be it” in all tenses. This harmony was well known by the writer of Hebrews 11:3: Through faith (#G4102) we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made (#G1096) of things which do appear.

This understanding of Ginomia- #G1096 is found in the

Let there be…and there was…” statements in the Genesis 1 account found in the LXX.

And God said, Let there be (#G1096) light!

And there was (#G1096) light. (Gen 1:3)

Faith translates into action and becomes so.

In Duet 27 the people who say “Amen” are stating their Belief, Faith and Trust in the Words of God. Is it not therefore the Faithful who shall live by the “Amen-ed” law? and the unfaithful who are cursed by their negligence thereto?

The principle of being Cursed with out Faith has not changed after Christ’s New Covenant else there would be no need for men to believe in Christ’s cursed tree of blessing.

The very simple fact remains in this section of Galatians as in 1John 3:5, Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, this so that we may fulfill the righteousness of the law.

So it is that the law is not of faith, but the doer lives so by

his faith being convinced of his condemnation by the law, he therefore is, or was, a cursed sinner, Yet now by faith Christ has redeemed that sinner with the gift of God, giving him, in the flesh, the ability to serve in the newness of Spirit.

Please consider if faithful Christian shall live in the cursed things below listed?

Here are one of the many laws that are synonymous in Paul’s quotes from the Law in Lev 18 & Deut 27:

Lev 18:8 The nakedness of thy father’s wife shalt thou not uncover…

Deu 27:20 Cursed be he that lieth with his father’s wife…

And all the people shall say, Amen (so be it).

Consider that the most base and simply understood laws will be transgressed if the spoken law of God is not written in the inward parts by love and wrought in our life by faith.

It is reported commonly that there is fornication among you (new Corinthian Church), and such fornication as is not so much as named among the Gentiles, that one should have his father’s wife. And ye are puffed up, and have not rather mourned, that he that hath done this deed might be taken away from among you. (1 Cor 5:1-2)

It is evident that the Faith of Christ is offered to sinners that they may be justified so that they should no longer live the rest of their time in the flesh to the lusts of men, but to the will of God (1Peter 4:2).

By now it should be well seen that the book of Galatians is not to make void the Law, but to establish the law in Faith and under Grace. As an honorable Child listens to his Father on account of Love and Kinship, But the servant listens only on account of debt and servitude: we brethren are called to be Sons and Heirs!
