Freedom In Christ:- Before Christ Jesus, we were slaves to the Schoolmasters but now set Free -3.
9But now after ye have known God, or rather are known by God, how turn ye again to the weak and beggarly elements unto which ye desire again to be in bondage?
Back to demiurge Yahweh, the god of Nature and of the Natural man that needs binding through Law and the Rabbi Priests.
10Ye observe days and months and times and years.
In Father God, we being the sons of Most High become like Him eternal where time does not matter.
11I am afraid for you, lest I have bestowed upon you labor in vain.
12Brethren, I beseech you, be as I am, for I am as ye are. Ye have not injured me at all.
13Ye know how through infirmity of the flesh I preached the Gospel unto you at the first.
14And my temptation which was in my flesh ye despised not, nor rejected, but received me as an angel of God, even as Christ Jesus.
15Where is then the blessedness ye spoke of? For I bear you record that, if it had been possible, ye would have plucked out your own eyes and have given them to me.
16Have I therefore become your enemy because I tell you the truth?
17They zealously seek after you, but for no good; yea, they would exclude you, that ye might seek after them.
Jews if thrown out of the Synagogue, they felt depressed and desireth to return back into the Synagogue. In Jesus, we need to be solitary with no such desire. If people do not like your Preaching, well enough leave them alone as you are already alone solitary.
18But it is good to be zealously sought after, always in a good thing, and not only when I am present with you.
19My little Brethren, (children), over whom I travail in birth again until Christ be formed in you,
20I desire to be present with you now and to change my tone; for I stand in doubt of you.
21Tell me, ye who desire to be under the law, do ye not hear the law?
22For it is written that Abraham had two sons, the one by a bondmaid, the other by a freewoman.
23But he who was of the bondwoman was born according to the flesh, but he of the freewoman was by promise.
24These things are an allegory, for these are the two covenants: The one is from Mount Sinai, which engendereth bondage; this is Hagar.
25For this Hagar is Mount Sinai in Arabia and answereth to Jerusalem as it is now, and is in bondage with her children.
26But the Jerusalem which is above is free, and is the mother of us all.
27For it is written: "Rejoice, thou barren that bearest not; break forth and cry, thou that travailest not; for the desolate hath many more children than she who hath a husband."
28Now we, brethren, as Isaac was, are the children of promise.
29But as then, he that was born according to the flesh persecuted him that was born according to the Spirit, even so it is now.
30Nevertheless what saith the Scripture? "Cast out the bondwoman and her son, for the son of the bondwoman shall not be heir with the son of the freewoman."
Disciples are slaves whilst the Labourers are Freemen, the sons that inherit the Royal Kingdom of God.
31So then, brethren, we are not children of the bondwoman, but of the free.
24Therefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith.
Law is Milk for the once-born people.
25But after faith has come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster. We are not babies fed on Milk but the very juicy meat of Jesus. Blood of Christ is the refreshing Drink that gives you strength.
26For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.
27For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ, have put on Christ.
Eucharist of Sacrifice is the Baptism of Christ Jesus that seals you to serve God only.
28There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female; for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.
Christ Jesus deals with our souls and not the flesh that has colour, Jew or Gentile, etc.
29And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed and heirs according to the promise.
This is a good analogy in that as the sons of Abraham enjoyed the best fruit of the earth when they are faithful to him, so we enjoy the best Fruit when we are the faithful sons of God, our Father and we are sealed to serve our Father only.
