Galatians 1

Paul, an apostle, (not of men, neither by man, but by Jesus Christ, and God the Father, who raised him from the dead;)

And all the brethren which are with me, unto the churches of Galatia:

Grace be to you and peace from God the Father, and from our Lord Jesus Christ,

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:

To whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.

I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel:

Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of 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.

As we said before, so say I now again, if any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.

10 For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ.

11 But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached of me is not after man.

12 For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ.

13 For ye have heard of my conversation in time past in the Jews’ religion, how that beyond measure I persecuted the church of God, and wasted it:

14 And profited in the Jews’ religion above many my equals in mine own nation, being more exceedingly zealous of the traditions of my fathers.

15 But when it pleased God, who separated me from my mother’s womb, and called me by his grace,

16 To reveal his Son in me, that I might preach him among the heathen; immediately I conferred not with flesh and blood:

17 Neither went I up to Jerusalem to them which were apostles before me; but I went into Arabia, and returned again unto Damascus.

18 Then after three years I went up to Jerusalem to see Peter, and abode with him fifteen days.

19 But other of the apostles saw I none, save James the Lord’s brother.

20 Now the things which I write unto you, behold, before God, I lie not.

21 Afterwards I came into the regions of Syria and Cilicia;

22 And was unknown by face unto the churches of Judaea which were in Christ:

23 But they had heard only, That he which persecuted us in times past now preacheth the faith which once he destroyed.

24 And they glorified God in me.

  1. Verses 3-5 MSG “So I greet you with the great words, grace and peace! We know the meaning of those words because Jesus Christ rescued us from this evil world we’re in by offering himself as a sacrifice for our sins. God’s plan is that we all experience that rescue. Glory to God forever! Oh, yes!” This good news message is for everyone as “There is Room in the House of God for Everybody”. There are so many in this world/city that still need to be rescued.

    Verses 6-7 AMP “I am astonished and extremely irritated that you are so quickly shifting your allegiance and deserting Him who called you by the grace of Christ, for a different [even contrary] gospel; which is really not another [gospel]; but there are [obviously] [b]some [people masquerading as teachers] who are disturbing and confusing you [with a misleading, counterfeit teaching] and want to distort the gospel of Christ [twisting it into something which it absolutely is not].” Same verses VOICE “Frankly I am stunned. I cannot believe that you have abandoned God so quickly—even after He called you through the grace of the Anointed One—and have fallen for a different gospel. Actually there is only one true gospel of the Anointed, and you—because of divisive prodding by others—are accepting a distorted version which is not the gospel at all! People are being deceived with an imitation of the true gospel, and they have bought into it. The words are nothing but twisted lies.” There is only one truth, one gospel and we must be ready to defend it as Paul did. Do not be mislead and/or even listen to anyone who tries to distort what you know God has given you.

  2. 8 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.

    9 As we said before, so say I now again, if any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.

    Paul emphasizes here a very important factor that all people need to adhere to. In the end time the Bible states that there will be a great falling away and that there will be men and women will be lovers of themselves instead lovers of God. These will begin to preach a watered down doctrine. When this happens those will have cursed themselves. We have to continue to preach this truth because Truth is Truth. If we preach first the kingdom then we can be in the will of God. We have to be about the king’s business.

    I love the Kingdom!

  3. 9 As we said before, so say I now again, if any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.
    10 For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ.
    11 But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached of me is not after man.

    There is no other or better gospel to preach than that of Jesus Christ, it doesn’t matter how compelling or enticing it might be, regardless if it hasn’t a hint of convincing truth, if it isn’t lined up with the word of God than it isn’t worth it. There isn’t a man in this world that should trump hearing the word of God that He gives us. I don’t care if it impresses anyone or not… It’s the objective moral truth and our lives should be based on it

  4. For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ. 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 1:10‭-‬12 KJV
    https://bible.com/bible/1/gal.1.10-12.KJV

    Wow what a chapter. Paul got it, if you’re not speaking the truth of the Kingdom; then what are you speaking. People have twisted and perverted God’s word. The truth is there, but you can’t just pick it up and expect to have an understanding without somebody showing you how to get the word on you. There are a lot of false doctrines out there. I know that I have to be mindful of the ones that speak to me about God’s truth. I thank you Jesus for guiding me to leaders that speak your truth.

  5. 11. Know this, dear brothers and sisters: the good news I brought to you isn’t the latest in fiction or the product of some creative mind. Voice

    Many people claim that the Bible is a work of fiction. Some are blinded by deception, but for some it’s just easier for them to claim that it is nothing but fairytales and make-believe than to live the purposeful, disciplined life it calls for.

  6. 13 For ye have heard of my conversation in time past in the Jews’ religion, how that beyond measure I persecuted the church of God, and wasted it:

    14 And profited in the Jews’ religion above many my equals in mine own nation, being more exceedingly zealous of the traditions of my fathers.

    15 But when it pleased God, who separated me from my mother’s womb, and called me by his grace,

    We all have a testamonie about the way we were, the place we were, before God intervened! Paul’s testimony is that he was a pharisee, he accuse the people of God, he Was judge, juror, executor, and all in the name of tradition, but Paul didn’t receive an invitation to the church, he didn’t get the knock on the door, he didn’t find a church, he was literally plucked out of his life, God forgave him, and had a plan for him! And he had to work side by side the very people he persecuted, and was they happy about Gods decision, um no, they were frightened! We are apt to serve side by side people who we would have been afraid of, rapist, child abusers, wife beaters, gangbangers, all different sorts of people, but The bible says “WHOM THE SON SETS FREE IS FREE INDEED” And once God sets them free iits not for me to judge them, we’ve all have had something in our life that separated us from the Love of God! And we’ve all experienced the life changing power of Jesus Christ!

    John 8:36
    If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.

  7. Galatians 1 :3-4 (Amp) Grace and spiritual blessing be to you and [ soul) peace from God the father and our Lord Jesus Christ ( the Messiah) . [4] Who gave ( yielded) Himself up ( to atone) for our sins
    [ and to save and sanctify us] , in order to rescue and deliver us from this present wicked age and world order, in accordance with the will and purpose and plan of our God and Father. There’s is plenty of room in God house for everyone. There are so many souls out here that need to be rescued. Jesus rescues !

  8. 1:17,18
    Neither went I up to Jerusalem to them which were apostles before me; but I went into Arabia, and res turned again unto Damascus.
    Then after three years I went up to Jerusalem to see Peter and adobe with him fifteen days.
    ———-
    Wow!!! He didn’t go to flesh and blood first… but he tarry, he had a looooooooong conversation with God, and then he spoke…

  9. Jesus gave his life for our sins, just as God our Father planned, in order to rescue us from this evil world in which we live. 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 but is not the Good News at all. You are being fooled by those who deliberately twist the truth concerning Christ. Let God’s curse fall on anyone, including us or even an angel from heaven, who preaches a different kind of Good News than the one we preached to you.
    Galatians 1:4‭, ‬6‭-‬8 NLT
    Be careful God warn us about people who come and twisted the truth do be fool but be steadfast Read his word

  10. 9 As we said before, so say I now again, if any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.
    10 For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ.

    Beware of teachings that compromise the word of God. Living for God not man should be our goal.

  11. 10 Obviously, I’m not trying to win the approval of people, but of God. If pleasing people were my goal, I would not be Christ’s servant. (NLT)

    Who are you pleasing? Are you being prayerful in your decisions and staying sure you’re in the Will of God? Pleasing God comes first. People around you may not like it, may not agree, and may become angry you’re displeasing them, but just tell them you’re a servant of the King.

  12. FIRST THE KINGDOM
    FIRST GOSPEL

    8 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.
    9 As we said before, so say I now again, if any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.

    The FIRST Gospel preached at Pentecost is the covenented Gospel, not the convenient Gospel. There is a trend in Christendom today to make up a Gospel to fit ones lifestyle.

    However, we see here the commitment and determination of Paul to maintain the original Gospel. May we be wise to examine ourselves and the Gospel we believe and live to ensure that it is the FIRST Gospel.

    We rejoice over 2 baptized in JESUS name and 2 filled with the Holy Ghost following Endtime Bible Study on Thursday Night. Thank you Choir for being Kingdom minded and placing The Kingdom of GOD FIRST.

  13. The Key verse in this chapter is v.9 which says As we have said before, I now say again : If anyone preaches to you a gospel contrary to what you received, a curse be on him!

    We should have zero tolerance for those who attempt to deny or corrupt the truth We must proclaim the truth to the whole world !!!

  14. Paul recognized in his day the powerful influence that the minds of men could have on the beliefs of men. He was after all, well educated in the religious traditions of his day, and yet initially missed out on the physical manifestation of his Saviour. Think about that as he speaks, 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.’

    Revelation is a powerful force in the kingdom that will stand against all the assaults against it, regardless of their source. Let God be true and every man a liar… if the words of men declare anything contrary to the Word, the Bible says to let them be accursed. Let God be first! Let his spirit guide in revelation and truth! Let us give him the greater glory, in Jesus name!

  15. 10 For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ.
    11 But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached of me is not after man.
    12 For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ.

    The Gospel of Jesus Christ.

    It is not of man’s religion, but by the Word of God and through the Power of the Holy Gost are we saved. We are saved by the death and resurrection of Jesus. This was not concieved feom the imaginations of man, but inspired by God. There is revelation that comes to those who seek it.
    When we seek first the Kingdom of God, the revelations of His might will be revealed.

  16. 10 Obviously, I’m not trying to win the approval of people, but of God. If pleasing people were my goal, I would not be Christ’s servant.

    Matthew 6:24 No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.

    Who’s FIRST?
    Who are you serving?
    Who are you pleasing?

    We word states we cannot serve two masters, and to please the people over God’s desire would be displeasing.

    It’s easy to SAY you please God, but what does your ACTIONS speak? Your characters? or attitude?

    I pray we SPEAK, ACT and BE FIRST the Kingdom.

  17. Galatians 1
    Message version
    I didn’t receive it through the traditions, and I wasn’t taught it in some school. I got it straight from God, received the Message directly from Jesus Christ.

    Paul is so surprised at how quickly some had forgotten truth. He reminds The Galatians what he had preached cane directly from God . His tradition would have been to continue persecution of Christians. But when God spoke to him to hear Truth it became who he was. In a recent Bible study I asked a question to a woman in her 40’s . “How does
    Your family feel about you having the baptism of the Holy Ghost since it goes against everything they have taught you”? She said of course it has caused a bit of strain. She proceeded because of tradition the church she was raised in teaches the Holy Ghost was only for a season. Paul admonished to not follow after anyone not matter credentials or titles but to follow after the truth. I’ve recently had others from traditional churches day “I’ve never heard that before”. We the Church must share the word all we have to do is say let’s take a look at what the Word says. Read it study it . People took things in their own hands at a counsel meeting and changed what was truth into what they thought . Thus began the downfall of leaving the true gospel of Christ.
    We must rescue many that believe they are saved . We must teach truth they are there beside you around you all over the place. We can’t wait til tomorrow we have to start the minute we walk out our door. Ask God He will lead you. I promise. Late last night in the rain I decided to go to Walmart as I was checking out a young man stepped up beside me to check out . As I continued to check out I quietly spoke to him and asked him just a simple question. “Where do you go to church “? He was eager to answer me. I finished.paying for my groceries as he did also. He then asked me wheee I went. He had no idea where POFW was I handed him a card. He too pulled out a post card size invitation to his church. He was excited about his church but reassured me that I probably would get a visit from him to our church . He asked my name and I asked his. His was Michael I thought how strange for the other morning I had just prayed for Michael and I asked God why was I praying for my husband and then realized I was praying for someone else. God uses us if we will allow him.
    What drew me to speak to the young man last night .
    I was in a hurry I didn’t feel well yet something caught my eye as I walked up to pay for my groceries
    He had laid a book on the counter a black book a very familiar book to me zoos Bible. Why he had it with him I did not ask but it was just what I needed to causally ask him. Where he went to church. Oh that we seek first the Kingdom of God. Oh what rewards there are. To God Be the Glory without Him I would be so timid with Him we are equipped with his power and will speak with spiritual authority.

    Stay Close to Truth
    8 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.

    9 As we said before, so say I now again, if any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.

    10 For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ.

  18. 8 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.

    9 As we said before, so say I now again, if any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.

    And we know this has happen through the many years since Paul’s writing, and whether it was an angel of light or a charismatic speaker-when they changed the gospel into another religion they were cursed. Many people today love the Lord yet we know they need the whole truth of salvation. These people may be honest and good people and the Lord Jesus died for them. We must reach them and teach them first paving the way with prayer and travail for the lost. If their hearts are not softened and their minds opened through our prayer, the word of God could fall on stony ground. I pray for a move of God in all my family members near and far.

  19. 8 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.

    9 As we said before, so say I now again, if any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.

    10 For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ.

    So many men walk this earth preaching something that is men made. We are wise to study so we aren’t lead stray. It’s so easy to follow the comfortable way, the popular, and the way of men. When the truth is what sets you apart, Holy, peculiar people of God!!! Don’t be like everyone else be like Jesus, follow Him and His word; for that it’s necessary to study the gospel of Jesus Christ and never depart from it. 2 Tim 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

  20. 4 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:

    Jesus is a loving, giving savior and He gave the greatest gift anyone can give – Himself. He already had given us so much, but to Him it wasn’t enough until He gave Himself in order to save us.

    If we are to follow His perfect example, then we understand that never truly give, until we FIRST give ourself to His perfect Will.

    “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
    ‭‭John‬ ‭3:16‬ ‭KJV‬‬

  21. For you have heard about my former way of life in Judaism: I persecuted God’s church to an extreme degree and tried to destroy it. I advanced in Judaism beyond many contemporaries among my people, because I was extremely zealous for the traditions of my ancestors. But when God, who from my birth set me apart and called me by His grace, was pleased to reveal His Son in me, so that I could preach Him among the Gentiles, I did not immediately consult with anyone.
    Galatians 1:13‭-‬16 HCSB

    We cannot judge a person’s calling by what they are currently doing. Paul, like John the Baptist, was called by God from the womb. However, while people easily accepted John’s ministry because of his early life and devotion, they rejected Paul because of his. They couldn’t fathom that a persecuter of the church could be called of God.

    In truth, Paul wasn’t called because he was a persecuter; rather, he was a persecuter because of his zealous abandon to what he felt called. From the womb, God saw in Paul a person who would hold back nothing in the performance of his duty, a person who would excel all others in whatsoever he chose to do. This nature in Paul caused him to profess that he had “profited in the Jews’ religion above many…, being more exceedingly zealous of the traditions of [his] fathers,” (Gal. 1:14), as well as to say of his Christian faith, “… I laboured more abundantly than they all,” (1 Corinthians 15:10). It was this zealous nature that caused Paul to master the Old Testament Scriptures, that caused him to sit at Jesus’ feet for three years to get the right perspective on those Scriptures, and that caused him to endure trials, imprisonments, sufferings, persecutions, shipwrecks, and the like to preach the true meaning of those Scriptures to others.

    Thus, Paul’s life testifies to us that we need to see past a person’s obvious sins to the nature God has put in them that can be used for His Kingdom once they have repented and been instructed in the ways of righteousness. We should never discount a person’s value or possibilities because of his present or previous sinful life. For:

    The worst of sinners can make the best of saints!

  22. Grace be to you and peace from God the Father, and from our Lord Jesus Christ,

    4 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:

    5 To whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.

  23. Perversion of the Gospel
    6 I am astonished and extremely irritated that you are so quickly shifting your allegiance and deserting Him who called you by the grace of Christ, for a different [even contrary] gospel; 7 which is really not another [gospel]; but there are [obviously] [b]some [people masquerading as teachers] who are disturbing and confusing you [with a misleading, counterfeit teaching] and want to distort the gospel of Christ [twisting it into something which it absolutely is not]. 8 But even if we, or an angel from heaven, should preach to you a gospel contrary to that which we [originally] preached to you, let him be condemned to destruction! 9 As we have said before, so I now say again, if anyone is preaching to you a gospel different from that which you received [from us], let him be condemned to destruction!

    Beware of false teachers/preachers. If what they are preaching/teaching cannot be backed up by the word of God then you must not listen to them or allow them to speak into your life. Too many people allow the spirit of confusion into their lives by listen to every one that proclaims they have a word of God.

    If I don’t know the individual or their “spirit” then I will take what they say and put it on the back burner until it can be confirmed through the Word of God, or the man of God in my life. I can’t afford to allow confusion, deception or any other spirit into my spirit.

    The bible clearly instructs us to “know them that labor among you.”

  24. iLove the Kingdom
    “I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel”

    Can you imagine if he marveled then, what would he do today? If Paul would have known that there would be over 33,000 (according to Google) I’m pretty sure he would have done more than “marvel”. It really is sad how so many people have their own private interpretation of Jesus.

  25. 8 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.
    9 As we said before, so say I now again, if any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.
    10 For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ.

    I am thankful that we have a pastor that preaches truth and does not sugarcoat it.We must live by the word of God and not what man says.

  26. 6 I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel:

    It amazes me how those who let themselves get offended by the Word of God because conviction pricks their heart leave the church to find a “feel good, live how you want message” church. If your life is not lining up with the Word of God and you get offended by standards then you’re not putting the kingdom first. You get in dangerous territory of a double minded saint and like to tell others how to live and be holy and righteous but then don’t do what they are preaching themselves. Sometimes being in that offended state will cause you to backslide and hold on to that feeling so you don’t have to live according to the Word. “A brother offended is harder to be won than a strong city: and their contentions are like the bars of a castle.”
    ‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭18:19‬ ‭KJV‬‬

    On the positive side there are those who won’t stray away because they can take “correction” and adjust themselves accordingly. Everything thing takes time, if it’s God’s Will things can change instantly, if it’s not then it takes time and it’s part of the learning and growing process.
    “And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me.”
    ‭‭Matthew‬ ‭11:6‬ ‭KJV‬‬

    We are very blessed to have God’s grace added to our imperfections. So before you get to a point where you feel like you need to go somewhere else and change things up because of something preached or said to you that strikes your heart wrong think if it’s correction or anything that you need to change.

    “These things have I spoken unto you, that ye should not be offended.”
    ‭‭John‬ ‭16:1‬ ‭KJV

  27. 6 I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting the one who called you to live in the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel.

    Many are quick to backslide, and leave the church. What brought them courage, peace, love and joy now they rather go back to their old life style. Because they lost that burning desire for God, and they weren’t rooted in the Word.

  28. Galatians 1:6-7
    6) I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel:
    7) Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert (distort, corrupt, twist, misrepresent, misinterpret, falsify) the gospel of Christ.

    There is only One Gospel, and that is the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
    “Another gospel” is the word of God that has been watered down, diluted, distorted, corrupted, twisted, misrepresented, misinterpreted, and falsified by false preacher and false teachers.

    Let us pray for one another and for new believers that we would all GROW in the Grace and Knowledge of Jesus Christ and Stand Firm in our beliefs.

  29. Vs 8 -9
    If an angel comes from heaven and preaches any other message Let him be forever. Cursed. I will say it again if anyone p reaches any other Gospel than the one you welcomed let Gods curse fall upon him
    Wow this really speaks the truth about false doctrine. There or so many churches out there that teach false and dont know it its false. But the person doing it and knows its not the truth

  30. 9 As we have said before, so now I say again, if anyone preaches any other gospel to you than what you have received, let him be accursed.

  31. Galatians 1
    3) Grace be to you and peace from God the Father, and from our Lord Jesus Christ,
    4) 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:
    5) to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.

    Grace and peace from our Lord Jesus, who gave himself for our sins , that we might be delivered from this present evil world, according to God’s will. Glory for ever and ever be to the Father.

  32. Let God’s curse fall on anyone, including us or even an angel from heaven, who preaches a different kind of Good News than the one we preached to you. I say again what we have said before: If anyone preaches any other Good News than the one you welcomed, let that person be cursed.
    Galatians 1:8‭-‬9 NLT

    Can there be any doubt as to how important it is to preach and teach the original Gospel? The truth delivered to the apostles from Jesus. Repentance and remission of sins preached in His name in Luke 24. Receiving the Holy Ghost as stated in Mark 16. Then put all together in Acts 2:38 through Peter. If Paul said God’s curse should come on us if we ever change this Gospel. Then he repeats himself in case he wasn’t clear enough! We must hold fast to the truth which was once delivered unto us!

  33. Am I now trying to win the favor and approval of men, or of God? Or am I seeking to please someone? If I were still trying to be popular with men, I would not be a bond-servant of Christ.
    -Galatians 1:10

    It’s not about me, it’s all about Jesus. Not for my glory, but for His glory! If we want to be good and faithful servants we need to practice the truth. If not, we’re not pleasing God. What does it help to win the favor of men and displease the Lord? We should fear God and obey Him; there will be a day where we’ll see Him face to face and He’ll decide whether we go to Heaven or not. I want to go to Heaven, so I’m going to obey Jesus and let Him be glorified.

  34. 15 But when it pleased God, who separated me from my mother’s womb, and called me by his grace,

    We are all privileged to be called by his grace. To be chosen for the Word tell me that I was chosen and not we ourselves.

  35. 23 But they had heard only, That he which persecuted us in times past now preacheth the faith which once he destroyed.
    We should not turn down chances that God gives us to witness to people. A person who is passionate about worldly things could be used in the Church if they had refocused passion and used their passion for the Kingdom of God! So, let us GO WITNESS IN JESUS NAME!

  36. Let God’s curse fall on anyone, including us or even an angel from heaven, who preaches a different kind of Good News than the one we preached to you.
    Galatians 1:8 NLT
    I have asked God if this doctrine is the full doctrine and each time He has given me confirmation. I thank You, LORD for understanding and guidance. In Jesus name

  37. 23 But they had heard only, That he which persecuted us in times past now preacheth the faith which once he destroyed.
    24 And they glorified God in me.

    God works things together for good. Even those which seem impossible or never likely to occur in man’s eyes. Showing the with God all things are possible including turning a man driven to persecute the children of God, into a man that loves them and preaches the word of God.
