The Miracle of God’s Word

Galatians 6:12
As many as desire to make a fair shew in the flesh, they constrain you to be circumcised; only lest they should suffer persecution for the cross of Christ.

The Cross always brings persecution, even if it is initially only in the form of relationship friction, criticism or simply rejection. This is why those of you who have come back to the Way of the Cross have experienced among your families and co-workers those very things. Once you realize that you are nothing but wretched before God and you come back to the only answer God offers, there will always be problems among those who do not know how wretched they are, and yes I’m speaking of Christians (Revelation 3:17). Until we desire to live for God and realize that at our best we remain wretched, THEN only through faith in the Cross of Jesus Christ will He bring us, NOT around the sin in our lives, but through it in His victory.

The Galatians were being tempted to be circumcised, and being told that if they were not, they were not really saved (Acts 15:1). How many are being not only told today that if they do not do this or do that they cannot be saved, and how many are being told that there is a separate avenue of God’s power for deliverance and blessing than the same Way in which He saved us? Are you sitting under a minister who does not know the DAILY WAY of Sanctification, and victory over sin is the Cross? You are if he isn’t preaching it. 99% of all Christians that are FAITHFULLY in Church are NOT hearing the Scriptures preached and taught in the Light of Christ and His Redemptive work at Calvary. This letter to the Galatians is MORE relevant today for God’s people than ever before. Come back to the Cross, and yes it will cost you greatly, but the gain is FAR better than the Loss!!

Bread Crumbs “Whosoever Will” October 18

The gospel of Jesus Christ is a “whosoever will” gospel. God has not chosen some people for salvation and other people for eternal destruction. So “whosoever will” can be saved. As well, God has opened the door wide for every born-again believer to be conformed into the image of Christ. Some approach this privilege and responsibility with a great desire to be changed. They learn the process of keeping their faith in Christ and Him Crucified in order to receive the grace that transforms them into His image. Other believers do not count the opportunity to be changed as a priority and their dedication, consecration, and lack of sanctification is evidenced to those who know them. Experiencing sanctification also belongs to “whosoever will.” Some people falter and stumble during a test or a trial. The difficulty causes them to release their faith and they allow their trust in Christ to crumble. But there are others who will fight the good fight of faith through every circumstance and trial of life. God's grace is able to equip us in every situation. All that He asks is that “whosoever will” might learn to trust Him in every circumstance, whether it be in salvation, sanctification, or through a fiery trial.

Revelation 22:17 - And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.

The Miracle of God’s Word

Galatians 6:13
For neither they themselves who are circumcised keep the law; but desire to have you circumcised, that they may glory in your flesh.

Everywhere you go where the message of the Cross isn’t the centerpiece of ministry and constantly pointed to using Scriptures, there is only Law and works and everyone is trying to be like everyone else. The Judaizers were only attempting to get the Galatians to “Be like them”, as there was no true concern for their proper spiritual state with God, for they themselves weren’t right with Him. When we are not striving together for the faith of the gospel (Philippians 1:27), we are striving for fleshly endeavors, and it matters not if we know it or not. God will NEVER honor anything of the flesh.

This is the epitome and praise among most all of the Church today. To make people like themselves. “Come, let us make a name for ourselves.” When we are found searching as the people of God for what God is going to send to deliver me from my sin or to pour out of His Spirit for what He’s called me to do, He will surely send you the messenger of the Cross. When this Way and focus is rejected, there remains nothing but corruption and destruction, for this is to deny Him and He has promised that when He is denied, He will deny (2 Timothy 2:12). Come back to the Cross and find all of that which you have been seeking everywhere else for!

Seeking God in His Word and experiencing Him through faith in the sacrifice of Christ! Don’t delay another day!

Bread Crumbs “The Primary Relationship” October 19

For the believer, there is one relationship that determines the health and longevity of every other relationship. If the believer’s relationship with Christ is secure, ongoing, and growing, then it is fairly reasonable to assume that the relationship with others will be strong. The reason behind this is simple. When we as individuals are drawing life from our relationship with Christ, then we are being equipp...ed by the Holy Spirit with the love, grace, patience, and long-suffering that is needed to successfully build and maintain any other relationship. When we try to gain happiness solely through a relationship with another human being, we will wind up with an emptiness in our soul. Instead of providing life for the one we love, we will attempt to draw life, until that other person has nothing left to give. Frustration, anger, and confusion are the end result. That person that we counted on to bring us life cannot supply it, nor we to them. When our relationship with Christ is the source from which we draw life, we will be filled with grace. We will have everything we need to share with someone else. Give priority to your relationship with Christ and your relationships with others will have the foundation to succeed.

Luke 10:27 - And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself.

The Miracle of God’s Word

Galatians 6:14
But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world.
...
The Word of God given to us through Paul in this letter to the Galatians tells us that GOD FORBIDS that we glory/boast in anything other than the Cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, because it is that which saved us, separated the world from us and us from the world, and through which ALL THINGS come from the Lord to us. All sin committed and the Sin Nature itself is of this world, and knowing that faith in the Cross is the only avenue through which God delivers us from the domination of the Sin Nature, our boast should be in the Cross of Christ daily. When we are told to try harder, or to do this or to do that for Salvation or Deliverance, we just need to deny ourselves/our flesh/ and cling to that saving Truth of Christ and Him crucified.


In years past we have boasted/trusted in the Purpose Driven Life, Purpose Driven Church, The Promise Keepers, The 40 days of this or the 40 days of that, the got to be covered by this or covered by that, the words we speak, etc…, while only tightening the chains of the Sin Nature in our lives. Doesn’t matter if you agree or not, for most of the Church in Galatia probably didn’t either, but if one’s faith isn’t exclusively in the Cross of Christ, the Sin Nature is dominating them even if it is now in RELIGIOUS PRIDE, which is above all, the worse and most subtle deception that exists. Time is running out for the Children of God to be able to come back to the Cross, for most haven’t throughout past generations, for they have been too controlled by what other people would think of them. Come out from among THEM today!
