Galatians - Part 12

The lesson on July 7, 2013 was part 12 of the "Galatians" study and began looking at chapter four while completing the third chapter.  It opened with a celebration of July 4th holiday in America, celebrating the fact that 13 colonies rebelled from Britton and became a wonderful nation.  Second, the term hyper-dispensationalism was discussed in how it is used to describe the Acts 28 believers.  Wayne explains why the hyper-dispensationalism term is used in error.  Finally, the study of Galatians continued with an introduction to chapter 4.  An emphasis was given to understanding what adoption meant at that time when a son was flesh related.  You had to be adopted to receive the blessings of inheritance.  We learn how a school master was used to train a child, and when the child was adopted, he would then move on to more mature responsibilities.  The scripture reading was from Galatians 4:1-7 KJV "1 Now I say, That the heir, as long as he is a child, differeth nothing from a servant, though he be lord of all; 2 But is under tutors and governors until the time appointed of the father. 3 Even so we, when we were children, were in bondage under the elements of the world: 4 But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law, 5 To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons. 6 And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father. 7 Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ."
