Galatians 3:3 are ye so foolish? Having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh?

Has our own flesh tricked us? Do we think our self-special? Are we better than anyone else? Or truly is everyone the same? There is no respect of persons from God’s vantage point. Romans 2:11 read all of this from 2:1 onward to get the context of the meaning here how respect is used here. From KJV

11 For there is no respect of persons with God.

From new living translation

Romans 1:11

11 For God does not show favoritism.

Possibly a better translation to understand what is being talked about here, do I, you or anyone seek favoritism from anyone else?

Do any one of us seek to be noticed? Has not his been going on for years? Let’s see what scripture says, so we can get a clear view at our self and what our flesh desires over what the Spirit of God desires for us to know, so each and every one of us can be wise as a serpent and harmless as a dove.

Matthew 23:1-4 New International Version (NIV)

23 Then Jesus said to the crowds and to his disciples: 2 “The teachers of the law and the Pharisees sit in Moses’ seat. 3 So you must be careful to do everything they tell you. But do not do what they do, for they do not practice what they preach. 4 They tie up heavy, cumbersome loads and put them on other people’s shoulders, but they themselves are not willing to lift a finger to move them.

These leaders of that day, told truth, yet did not do truth, they were only out for self and gained from the people their belongings, by putting heavy loads on their shoulders, yes it is true to do what is right, and do not do wrong, so when this is put on you that you must obey, you receive a heavy burden (load) that you cannot bear and thus you end up doing what you do not want to do. Read the rest of that chapter and get a drift of the deception that was going on then and still goes on today, teaching us to strive in our own flesh, never really coming to the born again life because one’s flesh is so well taught to be in the way of God almighty, that it is a trait in us by the time we are 18. And so it has become very hard to renew one’s mind thinking from God the Father’s vantage point instead of the worlds.

Let’s see: Romans 7 New International Version (NIV)

7:1Do you not know, brothers and sisters—for I am speaking to those who know the lawthat the law has authority over someone only as long as that person lives?

How many of us know the law, have we all not been raised under law?

Therefore as long as we are alive in the flesh the law has authority over all of us unless we die to our own self’s the flesh that we were born and raised with is this correct? See verse 2

7:2  For example, by law a married woman is bound to her husband as long as he is alive, but if her husband dies, she is released from the law that binds her to him. 3 So then, if she has sexual relations with another man while her husband is still alive, she is called an adulteress. But if her husband dies, she is released from that law and is not an adulteress if she marries another man.

Is this a good example, now if I die and am free, does that mean I can just go and do whatever I desire without consideration for any other?

God forbid man, no what this means is you are free to love your neighbor as self, this means that you by the grace of God before action you will stop and think about what you are about to do or say before doing it or saying it, asking God to take the reins and lead, and guess what you will automatically love your neighbor as you have discovered you are loved by God himself through Christ Jesus his Son who took away the curse of the Law that so easily besets each and every person.

Let us move on and see:

4 So, my brothers and sisters, you also died to the law through the body of Christ that you might belong to another, to him who was raised from the dead, in order that we might bear fruit for God. 5 For when we were in the realm of the flesh, the sinful passions aroused by the law were at work in us, so that we bore fruit for death. 6 But now, by dying to what once bound us, we have been released from the law so that we serve in the new way of the Spirit, and not in the old way of the written code.

Are you see this transformation coming in you as you ask for God to do this for you and therefore also God also will live through you?

Read the rest of the chapter to keep in context, but see this please that none of us can mix flesh and blood with GRACE. Flesh and blood is only water mostly, and GRACE is oil.

Water and oil does not mix, you can stir it up in a glass but after it has settled down they separate. So you can go out like the priests of Jesus’s day and tell truth, but not do it, sit in the highest seats in the synagogues, appear all high and mighty, but remember God himself has no respect of person from God’s vantage point. So you can gain the world with respect of others cheering you on, but please be careful as to not lose out on salvation by not truly caring, and this true care only comes from God the creator of all that is good.

So let us ask God the truth about being born of God’s Spirit and God will show you, me and you and them this truth. Thank you all for listening about being of God instead of this world born again in God’s kingdom
