  • Theology Club: WHAT GAL 2:20 MEANS TO BELIEVERS !!

    Hi to all , and even among believers there is a battle and much confusion , concerning OSAS !!

    It shows how we are influenced by family , Pastors , TV , and theological books and being Low information bible students !!

    Salvation is a personal thing between YOU and God and there is no Progression in Salvation , or Water , nor can a human person bestow Grace to you !!

    Gal 2:20 , " I have been CRUCIFIED along with Christ , yet I am

    alive . ( It is ) no longer I , but Christ living in me .

    And now that I live in ( the ) flesh I live by ( the ) FAITH of the

    Son of God , having loved me and having delivered Himself up for me ".

    #1 , I have been CRUCIFIED , is in the First Person Singular and this makes the death of Christ Personal , and He died for each person Individually and every person can put their name HERE , where the " I " is !!

    #2 , The Greek word CRUCIFIED / SUSTAUROO , is in the Perfect Tense , that covers TWO TIME PERIODS , Past and the Present !!

    This means that Results that Happened in the Past , Continue into Present Time !!

    This means that Salvation can not be Repeated , EVER !!

    #3 , It is in the Passive Voice , and this means that God did the Saving and NOT MAN , for we have been Crucified Spiritually with His Son as we could not put ourselves on that Cross !!

    Because we are Crucified with Christ the following things are true benefits :

    #4 , We are DEAD to the World , Gal 6:14 !!

    #5 , We are DEAD to the Flesh , Gal 5:24 !!

    #6 , We are DEAD to Sin , Rom 6:2 , 7 , 11 , positionally speaking .

    Sin does not have Reign over us like before we were saved !

    #7 , We are DEAD to the Law of Moses , Rom 7:4 and a lot of so-called believers , like to be told Do This or Do That !!

    Then there are following things to consider , in Gal 2:20 :

    I LIVE , LIVETH , are in the PRESENT TENSE and this speaks of CONTINUOUS action , and are Saved Forever !!

      Salvation is a personal thing between you and God and there is no progression in salvation, or water, nor can a human person bestow grace to you.

      Gal 2:20 "I have been crucified along with Christ, yet I am alive. (It is) no longer I, but Christ living in me. And now that I live in (the) flesh I live by (the) faith of the Son of God, having loved me and having delivered Himself up for me."

      1. I have been crucified, is in the first person singular and this makes the death of Christ Personal, and He died for each person individually and every person can put their name here, where the "I" is!
      2. The Greek word crucified/sustauroo, is in the perfect tense, that covers two time periods: past and the present! This means that results that happened in the past, continue into present time! This means that salvation can not be repeated; ever!
      3. It is in the passive voice , and this means that God did the saving and not man, for we have been crucified spiritually with His Son as we could not put ourselves on that cross. Because we are crucified with Christ the following things are true benefits:
      4. We are dead to the world. Gal 6:14
      5. We are dead to the flesh. Gal 5:24
      6. We are dead to sin. Rom 6:2, 7, 11, positionally speaking. Sin does not have Reign over us like before we were saved.
      7. We are dead to the Law of Moses. Rom 7:4 and a lot of so-called believers like to be told, "Do this," or, "Do that!"

      Then there are following things to consider, in Gal 2:20:

      I live/liveth, are in the present tense and this speaks of continuous action, and are saved forever!

      There, now they are easier to read, if not completely comprehensible due to some grammatical issues.

      However, from what I gather through context and what I can understand, I agree.

        How is this a Mid-Acts related post? I'm not questioning the position expressed in the OP, just trying to understand how this is specific to the Mid-Acts position. Thanks.
        Law makes a demand. Grace makes a provision.

          According to MAD Gal. 2:20 is not applicable to the circumcision [those to whom Peter, James and John wrote].

            1 John 4:13
            By this we know that we abide in Him, and He in us, because He has given us of His Spirit.

            1 John 5:20
            And we know that the Son of God has come and has given us an understanding, that we may know Him who is true; and we are in Him who is true, in His Son Jesus Christ.

                Do you have a point?

                  Because the Lord Jesus Christ said to enter into life, keep the commandments. Do you deny this? His "brother" James said What does it profit, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can faith save him?. Paul says to disregard and trust not in when you knew the Lord Jesus in the flesh, but in his resurrection.
                  Jesus saves completely. http://www.climatedepot.com/ http://www.thereligionofpeace.com/

                  Titus 1

                  For there are many insubordinate, both idle talkers and deceivers, especially those of the circumcision, whose mouths must be stopped

                  Ephesians 5

                  11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them. 12 For it is shameful even to speak of those things which are done by them in secret

                      He also said these words to the Jews who lived under the Law:
                      "Very truly I tell you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be judged but has crossed over from death to life" (Jn.5:24).

                      That is why the Lord Jesus could say this to the same Jews:

                      "It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life" (Jn.6:63).

                      The Lord Jesus' words which you quoted are indeed true but in order for anyone to inherit eternal life by keeping the commamdments one must keep then perfectly. As James said, if a person breaks one commandment then he is guilty of all.

                      And what Paul says here makesit plain that he did not think that anyone could be saved by keeping the law perfectly:
                      "I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain" (Gal.2:21).

                      His "brother" James said What does it profit, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can faith save him?.
                      Here James tells those to whom he addressed his epistle exactly how they are saved when they are born of God:
                      "Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures" (Jas.1:18).

                      Do you agree that they were saved by faith and faith alone?

                        So much for the liberty you were going on about in those passages so nicely.

                        So, what if some who hold to Acts 9:6 also refer to that as Mid-Acts?

                        Isn't one person on here that obtuse - for decades now - not enough?

                            You are the World Champion at doing that. You come on threads and say nothing about the subject of that thread and all you do is try to assassinate my character!

                            At least I used Scriptures to explain to others that keeping the law was not the only way whereby the Jews living under the law could be saved.

                            Since you do not want others to see that truth you come on this thread and accuse me of breaking the rules in the hope that no one will read what I wrote.

                              Hi you say that Acts 9:6 is a Mid-Acts phrase ?

                              If you are really Acts 9:6 and know HOW to prove it , why do you need that PHRASE ??

                              Show me your PROOF of Saul's salvation in Acts 9:6 OR are you going to cling to " I saw the Light " ??

                              If they believe in Acts 13 , why are they so defensive OR are you Acts 13 ??

                              Like to you prove either one !!
