Galatians 2:1-21 (Good News Translation)
God’s Renewing Word
Galatians 2:1-21: Paul describes his meeting with the apostles in Jerusalem, and he reports on a disagreement he had with Peter in Antioch. The chapter concludes with Paul’s teaching on how one is put right with God.
Today’s Scripture: Galatians 2:16a
Yet we know that a person is put right with God only through faith in Jesus Christ, never by doing what the Law requires.
Paul and the Other Apostles
1 Fourteen years later I went back to Jerusalem with Barnabas, taking Titus along with me.2I went because God revealed to me that I should go. In a private meeting with the leaders I explained the gospel message that I preach to the Gentiles. I did not want my work in the past or in the present to be a failure.3My companion Titus, even though he is Greek, was not forced to be circumcised,4although some wanted it done. Pretending to be believers, these men slipped into our group as spies, in order to find out about the freedom we have through our union with Christ Jesus. They wanted to make slaves of us,5but in order to keep the truth of the gospel safe for you, we did not give in to them for a minute.
6 But those who seemed to be the leaders—I say this because it makes no difference to me what they were; God does not judge by outward appearances—those leaders, I say, made no new suggestions to me.7On the contrary, they saw that God had given me the task of preaching the gospel to the Gentiles, just as he had given Peter the task of preaching the gospel to the Jews.8For by God's power I was made an apostle to the Gentiles, just as Peter was made an apostle to the Jews.9James, Peter, and John, who seemed to be the leaders, recognized that God had given me this special task; so they shook hands with Barnabas and me, as a sign that we were all partners. We agreed that Barnabas and I would work among the Gentiles and they among the Jews.10All they asked was that we should remember the needy in their group, which is the very thing I have been eager to do.
Paul Rebukes Peter at Antioch
11But when Peter came to Antioch, I opposed him in public, because he was clearly wrong.12Before some men who had been sent by James arrived there, Peter had been eating with the Gentile believers. But after these men arrived, he drew back and would not eat with the Gentiles, because he was afraid of those who were in favor of circumcising them.13The other Jewish believers also started acting like cowards along with Peter; and even Barnabas was swept along by their cowardly action.14When I saw that they were not walking a straight path in line with the truth of the gospel, I said to Peter in front of them all, “You are a Jew, yet you have been living like a Gentile, not like a Jew. How, then, can you try to force Gentiles to live like Jews?”
Jews and Gentiles Are Saved by Faith
15Indeed, we are Jews by birth and not “Gentile sinners,” as they are called.16 Yet we know that a person is put right with God only through faith in Jesus Christ, never by doing what the Law requires. We, too, have believed in Christ Jesus in order to be put right with God through our faith in Christ, and not by doing what the Law requires. For no one is put right with God by doing what the Law requires.17If, then, as we try to be put right with God by our union with Christ, we are found to be sinners, as much as the Gentiles are—does this mean that Christ is serving the cause of sin? By no means!18If I start to rebuild the system of Law that I tore down, then I show myself to be someone who breaks the Law.19So far as the Law is concerned, however, I am dead—killed by the Law itself—in order that I might live for God. I have been put to death with Christ on his cross,20so that it is no longer I who live, but it is Christ who lives in me. This life that I live now, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave his life for me.21I refuse to reject the grace of God. But if a person is put right with God through the Law, it means that Christ died for nothing!
What was the “special task” that the apostles recognized had been given to Paul (verses 7-9)? The apostles asked that Paul “remember the needy in their group” (verse 10). In what ways do faith-based organizations remember the needy today? How do you remember the needy? What was the source of Paul’s conflict with Peter (verses 11-14)? According to Paul, how are we “put right” with God (verses 15-21)? What does being “put right with God” mean to you?
Almighty God, thank you for the gift of faith. Through faith in your Son, Jesus, I have been reconciled and put right with you. Teach me to live my life in ways that reflect your love and in obedience to your will. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
Galatians 3:1-29: Paul discusses the relationship between the Law and faith.
Sarah Palin, Will She Run For President?
Sarah Palin, a very strong Conservative, may decide to run, she has a very strong following. There is only one Sarah and the libs are scared to death of her, sort of like they were of President Reagan, I remember all the b. s. they were mouthing. They know she is formidable, she can raise a half dead audience to their feet cheering.
She said a candidate like Hillary is no obstacle at all.
I know she would bring this country back from the abyss BHO and company has taken us to, bring back our military strength and regain our once held respect in the world, she would renew our relationship with our allies and be formidable to our enemies, we would return to the Constitution and the Rule of law, as set by our Founders, the countless executive orders would be examined for elimination and that damnable Obamacare would see the kiss of dearth…
Now there is a woman. She has the qualities of a Margaret Thatcher. The question is will she throw her hat in the ring, I hope she will in spite of foul mouthed addlebrained liberals who know she is capable of sweeping the floor with them, like an iron lady
1776 is the year that America declared their independence, but it is also the year that the Illuminati was founded, and the Illuminati came first.
“For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.” Revelation 17:17 (KJV)
How well I remember the crystal-clear, cornflower blue sky on the morning of September 11, 2001. It was a perfect day, until the towers fell at the hand of Muslim terrorists. Out of the rubble, slowly arose a defiant new structure called the Freedom Tower, and it was being built to stand at exactly 1,176 feet from stem to stern. Patriots cheered and America got back to business. Then, very quietly, things started to change. Freedom Tower was out. The new name became the One World building.
What do I see when I look at the new logo? I see “One World”…”forever” as a message from the New World Order.
On March 27, 2009 NBC News reported that “the agency that owns the site says that the signature 1,776-foot skyscraper replacing the towers destroyed on Sept. 11, 2001, will be known as One World Trade Center. The change came after board members voted to sign a 21-year lease deal with Vantone, a Chinese real estate giant, which will become the first commercial tenant at Ground Zero. The negotiations with Vantone, which is closely affiliated with the Chinese Communist government, had nothing to do with the name change”
And just so you have it straight in your head, the new name of the building was not changed to “1 World Trade Center”, it was changed to “One World, trade center”. Because that’s how it appears in all the splashy new logos and graphics in their advertisements. It is the One World building, that also happens to be a trade center. But that’s just a name, you say, right? Let’s take a look at what’s under the flashy new facade.
The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey is secretly planning to deploy military-grade technology at One World
In February of 2012, it was reported that the high-tech system of thousands of “intelligent” cameras and computer processors can recognize people’s faces and retinas and then compare that information with databases such as terrorist watch lists, sources said.
One World Trade Center – A Stamp Of The Illuminati
Security measures at the 16-acre include the sensitive cameras alongside infrared and heat sensors that can be outfitted with explosive and radiation detectors.
And agency brass also are authorizing “artificial intelligence” computers that constantly track the behavior of people on the ground — figuring out how to spot “unusual movements” that can be flagged for security personnel.
For example, cops could be dispatched if the computers detected someone deviating from the normal walkways or walking against the flow of pedestrians; jumping around or making erratic movements; or dropping a bag where people do not usually leave their luggage.
“What we’re doing at the One World building has never been done before,” one agency official said.
The agency’s system will be connected to the NYPD’s Lower Manhattan Security Initiative, which has cameras and scanners spread around downtown. The Defense Department contractor Behavioral Recognition Systems, based in Houston, will set up most of the system, which is expected to cost tens of millions of dollars.
n other words, the new One World building is meant to be the hub point through which the entire city of Manhattan will be wired for around the clock, hyper-invasive surveillance.
Muslim minarets adorn the top of the new One World building
When Muslims claim victory in a military conquest, they do two things. They build a mosque on or near the site of the battle, and then they raise up a minaret as high as it will go to show the world that that land has been claimed as an Islamic victory. The image on the left is the tower on top of the One World building, and the image on the right a minaret on an Islamic mosque. So what exactly would be the difference between these two structures? I am hard-pressed to discern between the two. They attempted to also build a huge mega-mosque right near the Ground Zero site as well, but were defeated by the efforts of our friend Pamela Geller from Atlas Shrugs. But, as you can see, raising the minarets was completely successful.
The Illuminati was founded in 1776, nine weeks before that of America
1776 is the year that America declared their independence, but it is also the year that the Illuminati was founded as well. In fact, the Illuminati’s creation on May 1st predates America’s founding by nearly 9 weeks. If they would have kept the original name of Freedom Tower, as it was supposed to be called, then that would be a great and patriotic match to the year 1776. But with the name change to the One World building, I have to believe that 1776 is indeed a reference to the founding of the Illuminati.
Just as the New World Order decided to put the headquarters of the Luciferian organization known as the United Nations in New York City, they have also decided to put the central command center for the coming One Word Government in New York City as well. The One World building, which could aptly be called America’s Pyramid, is a collection of Illuminati triangles from any angle you look at it from, including from an aerial view at the very top.
And lastly, however you choose to believe that the Twin Towers were brought down, one thing is for certain. What arose from the rubble in the aftermath was a scary new world that is on 24 x 7 digital lockdown, with never-ending global wars, and open terrorist attacks in every major city in America. Police departments are all being militarized with battlefield tanks, and the uniform of the average policeman looks like a cyborg from a video game. Government-funded race riots break out every few months, attempting to provoke a new civil war.
A lot more than people died on 9-11, freedom died that day as well, as the Patriot Act, the Utah Data Center, and the Department of Homeland Security will attest to.
Your support keeps freedom alive!
