The Abrahamic Covenant --- BeYeThereforePerfect_pic.jpg

"1 Hearken to me, YE THAT FOLLOW AFTER RIGHTEOUSNESS, YE THAT SEEK THE LORD; look unto the rock whence ye are hewn, and to the hole of the pit whence ye are digged."

2 LOOK UNTO ABRAHAM YOUR FATHER, and unto Sarah that bare you: For I Called Him Alone, and BLESSED HIM, and increased him." --- [Isaiah 51: 1-2 - Bible]


"1 And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, the Lord appeared unto Abram and said unto him, I am the Almighty God: walk before me, and be thou perfect."

"2 AND I WILL MAKE MY COVENANT BETWEEN ME AND THEE, and will multiply thee exceedingly."

"3 And Abram fell on his face; and God talked with him, saying,"

"4 As for me, behold, MY COVENANT IS WITH THEE, and thou shalt be a Father of many nations."

"5 Neither shall thy name any more be called Abram, but thy name shall be Abraham; for a father of many nations have I made thee."

"6 And I will make thee exceeding fruitful, and I will make nations of thee, and kings shall come out of thee."

"7 AND I WILL MAKE MY COVENANT BETWEEN ME AND THEE AND THY SEED AFTER THEE IN THEIR GENERATIONS FOR AN EVERLASTING COVENANT, to be a God unto thee, AND TO THY SEED after thee." --- [Genesis 17: 1-7 - Bible]


"15 And the angel of the Lord called unto ABRAHAM out of heaven the second time,"

"16 And said, By myself have I sworn, saith the Lord, for because thou hast done this thing, and hast not withheld thy son, thine only son:"

"17 That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore; and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies;"

"18 And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because thou hast obeyed my voice." --- [Genesis 22: 15-18 - Bible]


"1 Now the Lord had said unto ABRAM, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will shew thee:"

"2 And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing:"

"3 And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: AND IN THEE SHALL ALL FAMILIES OF THE EARTH BE BLESSED." --- [Genesis 12: 1-3 - Bible]


"6 But I, Abraham, and Lot, my brother's son, prayed unto the Lord, and the Lord appeared unto me, and said unto me: Arise, and take Lot with thee; for I have purposed to take thee away out of Haran, and to make of thee a minister to bear my name in a strange land which I will give unto thy seed after thee for an everlasting possession, when they hearken to my voice. ..."

"8 My name is Jehovah, and I know the end from the beginning; therefore my hand shall be over thee."

"9 And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee above measure, and make they name great among all nations, AND THOU SHALT BE A BLESSING UNTO THY SEED AFTER THEE, THAT IN THEIR HANDS THEY SHALL BEAR THIS MINISTRY AND PRIESTHOOD unto all nations;"

"10 AND I WILL BLESS THEM THROUGH THY NAME; FOR AS MANY AS RECEIVE THIS GOSPEL { (The Gospel of Jesus Christ) } SHALL BE CALLED AFTER THY NAME AND SHALL BE ACCOUNTED THY SEED, and shall rise up and bless thee as their Father;" --- [Abraham 2: 6 & 8-10 - Pearl of Great Price]


"26 For ye are all the children of God BY FAITH IN CHRIST JESUS."

{Those who accept The Gospel of Jesus Christ, even if they are not aware of it, become part of The Abrahamic Covenant.}

"27 FOR AS MANY OF YOU AS HAVE BEEN BAPTIZED INTO CHRIST HAVE PUT ON CHRIST. ..."

{More fully: Those who receive The Gospel of Jesus Christ under the authority of The Melchizedek Priesthood are adopted into The Abrahamic Covenant. (NOTE: You do not need to be aware of this for it to happen: You do not even need to know what The Abrahamic Covenant is in order for you to be adopted into it. It just happens!}

"29 AND IF YE BE CHRIST'S, THEN ARE YE ABRAHAM'S SEED, and heirs according to THE PROMISE" {OF ETERNAL LIFE :}

{ "AND THIS IS THE PROMISE THAT HE HATH PROMISED US, EVEN ETERNAL LIFE." --- [1st John 2: 25 - Bible] }

--- [Galatians 3: 16-29 - Bible --- (Only 26-27 & 29 shown here)]


"AND IF CHILDREN, THEN HEIRS; HEIRS OF GOD, AND JOINT-HEIRS WITH CHRIST; if so be that we suffer with Him, THAT WE MAY BE ALSO GLORIFIED TOGETHER." --- [Romans 8: 17 - Bible]

{Now an HEIR means that you inherit whatever the giver of the heirship has to offer. If you are the Heir of a Millionaire, you inherit what the Millionaire has. The son becomes a Millionaire. If you are the Heir of a Billionaire, you inherit what the Billionaire has. The daughter becomes a Billionaire. If you are the Heir of God, you inherit what God has to offer: YOU BECOME A GOD! Through the grace of God, God's sons & daughters become EQUAL WITH GOD --- inheriting all that God has to offer to them! ...}


"I HAVE SAID, YE ARE GODS; AND ALL OF YOU ARE CHILDREN OF THE MOST HIGH." --- [Psalm 82: 6 - Bible]


"34 Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, YE ARE GODS?"

"35 IF HE CALLED THEM GODS, UNTO WHOM THE WORD OF GOD CAME,"

{ In these Latter-Days "THE WORD OF GOD CAME," has been delivered to, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Because this is The Church that Jesus Christ HIMSELF set up, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints therefore is the only Church which has all of the doctrines in The Bible found in this Church, including The Abrahamic Covenant as well as the doctrine: "YE ARE GODS" Because these and many other doctrines are true doctrines of The Church of Jesus Christ, such doctrines are only found in that true Church of Jesus Christ set up by Jesus Christ Himself, and that Church is: The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, }

"AND THE SCRIPTURE CANNOT BE BROKEN;?" --- [John 10: 34-35 - Bible]

{This means you either accept the many doctrines, including The Abrahamic Covenant and "YE ARE GODS" , found in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, or you reject the many doctrines found in this The Lord's Church including The Abrahamic Covenant and "YE ARE GODS" It's as simple as that. Either The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints has these doctrines and teaches these doctrines on the one hand; or you disbelieve what The Bible says about these doctrines, rejecting them, and in so doing you not only call The Saviour a liar on prophecies and other "SCRIPTURE(s) (THAT) CANNOT BE BROKEN;" but reject the Saviour Himself! }

{ "AND THE SCRIPTURE CANNOT BE BROKEN;" And why? Because to break such scriptures would make God a liar, and, God doe not lie! When God states something, or causes something to be written as such by a prophet or an apostle, what was written MUST come true, or God becomes a liar and a false God. In God promising the faithful that they will inherit His Lifestyle, which He calls, Eternal Life, He has to not only give it in the end but should bear witness of it many times so that we can have a greater witness and hope that it is true. }

{One of the greatest scripture passages of hope is that we can be "EQUAL WITH GOD": }

"LET THIS MIND BE IN YOU, WHICH WAS ALSO IN CHRIST JESUS: WHO, BEING IN THE FORM OF GOD, THOUGHT IT NOT ROBBERY TO BE EQUAL WITH GOD:" --- [Philippians 2: 5-6 - Bible]

{Since God promises you that "YE ARE GODS," and He cannot lie, which means that "THE SCRIPTURE CANNOT BE BROKEN," He also promises you that you can become "EQUAL WITH GOD."

If you become a God, of course you would be "EQUAL" with Him. The only way The Saviour, or anyone else, could be a God is to be "EQUAL WITH GOD." Anything less means you are not on the same playing field (manner of speaking).

Because the best inheritance a loving Father can give to his children is to not hold anything back from His Children's Inheritance, God being the greatest Father that there is, offers The Oath & Covenant of The Priesthood, in which He swore an OATH and made a COVENANT that ALL THAT HE HAS will be given to them who earn it. Godhood, or our ability to become AS GOD IS, thus becomes the greatest "PRIZE" in the universe, and the Highest CALLING that any of us can be called to!, which is: THE HIGH CALLING OF GOD: }

{It is the HIGHEST CALLING of all!}

"I PRESS TOWARD the mark for THE PRIZE OF THE HIGH CALLING OF GOD IN CHRIST JESUS." ...

{ And this "HIGH CALLING" only comes through CHRIST JESUS." It is HE, God The Firstborn Son, which means that He was the First of God The Father's many sons to become a God,}

"WHO SHALL CHANGE OUR VILE BODY, THAT IT MAY BE FASHIONED LIKE UNTO HIS GLORIOUS BODY,"

{God has the greatest body of all, and it is just logical that those who inherit all that He has to give, Eternal Life (which is God's Life), should also inherit a body "FASHIONED LIKE UNTO HIS GLORIOUS BODY:" --- For how can you be a God unless you have the body of a God?}

"according to the working whereby He is able even to subdue all things unto Himself." --- [Philippians 3: 14 & 21 - Bible]


"22 AND THE GLORY WHICH THOU GAVEST ME, { "THE GLORY" of a God's body and "THE GLORY" of being a God, as well as "THE GLORY" of The Melchizedek Priesthood, all of which God The Father gave to His Son Jesus Christ that Jesus should be a God, like unto God The Father Himself}

"I HAVE GIVEN THEM:"

{And that wonderful God's body that God The Father gave to God The Son, who is Jesus Christ, shall also be given to God The Father's others Sons who inherit the same "GLORY" as Jesus the Firstborn God-Son inherited. The Promise in the Oath & Covenant of The Priesthood is that those who magnify their Priesthood Calling can become "EQUAL WITH GOD" and inherit ALL that the God The Father has!}

"that they may be one, {one in purpose, one in goal, one in unity} even as we are one; {in purpose, in goal, in unity}"

"23 I in them, and thou in me, THAT THEY MAY BE MADE PERFECT IN ONE, {one goal to bring to pass the immortailty and eternal life of man, which is the purpose which brings unity to them} "For behold, THIS IS MY WORK AND MY GLORY, TO BRING TO PASS THE IMMORTALITY AND ETERNAL LIFE OF MAN." --- [Moses 1: 39 - Pearl of Great Price]

"and that the world may know that Thou hast sent me, AND HAST LOVED THEM AS THOU HAST LOVED ME." --- [John 17: 22-23 - Bible]

{In this concept:} "AND HAST LOVED THEM AS THOU HAST LOVED ME." {is revealed why The Father offers ALL THAT HE HAS to His children. ... Because He loves us! ... Because He loves His children, we the obedient, and wants to SHARE "ALL THAT HE HAS" with His children who will follow Him!}

"He that spared not His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, HOW SHALL HE NOT WITH HIM ALSO FREELY GIVE US ALL THINGS? --- [Romans 8: 32 - Bible]

"And he that receiveth my Father receiveth my Father's kingdom; therefore ALL THAT MY FATHER HATH SHALL BE GIVEN UNTO HIM." ---

"And this is according to THE OATH AND COVENANT WHICH BELONGETH TO THE PRIESTHOOD." --- [D&C 84: 38-39]


{ So, again, how does The Father love His other children? This is so tantamount to realize this concept: He loves His other children the same way He loves His Firstborn Son: }

"THE FATHER LOVETH THE SON, AND HATH GIVEN ALL THINGS INTO HIS HAND." --- [John 3: 35 - Bible]

{Because} THE FATHER LOVETH THE SON, AND HATH GIVEN ALL THINGS INTO HIS HAND." {and He loves us the same way; therefore, it makes sense for Paul and other prophets and apostles to say that} ALL THINGS ARE OUR'S:

"21 Therefore let no man glory in men. FOR ALL THINGS ARE YOURS:"

"22 Whether Paul, or Apollos, or Cephas, or the world, or life, or death, or things present, OR THINGS TO COME: ALL ARE YOURS;" --- [1st Corinthians 3: 21-22 - Bible]


For what man among you having twelve sons, AND IS NO RESPECTER OF THEM, and they serve him obediently, and he saith unto THE ONE: { THE ONE here can be likened to The Firstborn SON OF GOD, The Saviour, Jesus Christ} "Be thou clothed in robes and sit thou here" Be thou clothed in a God's body with Godly attire and sit thou here beside me on my throne to be a God with me "and to the other { (s) } : Be thou clothed in rags and sit thou there

You other rightoeous children of mine, though you have also served me OBEDIENTLY, I am not going to reward you in the same way that I rewarded your brother, Jesus Christ. Therefore, here are lesser clothes for you to wear; go now, sit over there: do not share my throne with me: You are not EQUAL to The Firstborn Son.}

"AND LOOKETH UPON HIS" {OTHER} "SONS AND SAITH I AM JUST?"

"Behold, this I have given to you as a parable, AND IT IS EVEN AS I AM. --- [D&C 38: 26-27]

{ God The Father cannot LOOKETH UPON His other righteous sons and daughters, who can be just as EQUALLY as pure, as loving, as obedient as His Firstborn Son, The Saviour, even Jesus Christ, is, AND SAITH I AM JUST AND NOT GIVE THEM THE SAME ETERNAL LIFE THAT HE GAVE THE FIRST. }

{And when you truly learn this principle, that God loves all His children, then you will understand the Love of God, and that The Abrahamic Covenant was a Covenant God made to His "OTHER" Children - that His "OTHER" Children might also have hope as well.}

{Although The Saviour, Jesus Christ, is the Saviour of The World, Abraham was also counted as a so-called, "Saviour", which is why Isaiah, under the inspiration of the Holy Ghost, wrote:}

"1 Hearken to me, YE THAT FOLLOW AFTER RIGHTEOUSNESS, YE THAT SEEK THE LORD; look unto the rock whence ye are hewn, and to the hole of the pit whence ye are digged."

"2 LOOK UNTO ABRAHAM YOUR FATHER, --- [Isaiah 51: 1-2 - Bible]

{ Because even as Abraham was a type of "Saviour" for the rest of God's Children, so we, the faithful members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, through the same Melchizedek Priesthood that faithful Abraham was blessed with, also become "SAVIOURS ON MOUNT ZION":

"AND SAVIOURS SHALL COME UP ON MOUNT ZION" ... "AND THE KINGDOM SHALL BE THE LORD'S." --- [Obadiah 1: 21 - Bible]

"39 W"HEN MEN ARE CALLED UNTO MINE EVERLASTING GOSPEL, AND COVENANT WITH AN EVERLASTING COVENANT, they are accounted as The Salt of The Earth and THE SAVOR OF MEN." { THE SAVIOUR OF MEN. }

"40 They are called to be The Savor of Men; therefore, if that Salt of The Earth lose its savor, behold, it is thenceforth good for nothing only to be cast out and trodden under the feet of men." --- [D&C 101: 39-40]

"9 F"OR THEY WERE SET TO BE A LIGHT UNTO THE WORLD, AND TO BE THE SAVIOURS OF MEN;"

{ Let's repeat that and clarify it more:} Members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, and especially The Elders of The Melchizedek Priesthood found in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, ARE SET TO BE A LIGHT UNTO THE WORLD, AND TO BE THE SAVIOURS OF MEN; }

"10 Aand inasmuch as they are not THE SAVIOURS OF MEN, they are as SALT THAT HAS LOST ITS SAVOR, and is thenceforth good for nothing but to be cast out and trodden under feet of men." --- [D&C 103: 9-10]

{Therefore it through The Melchizedek Priesthood that men become} "SAVIOURS ON MOUNT ZION" {and The Abrahamic Covenant is fulfilled.}


"11 And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse them that curse thee; and in thee (that is, IN THY PRIESTHOOD), AND IN THY SEED (THAT IS, THY PRIESTHOOD), FOR I GIVE UNTO THEE A PROMISE THAT THIS RIGHT SHALL CONTINUE IN THEE, and in thy seed after thee (that is to say, the literal seed, or the seed of the body) SHALL ALL THE FAMILIES OF THE EARTH BE BLESSED, EVEN WITH THE BLESSINGS OF THE GOSPEL, WHICH ARE THE BLESSINGS OF SALVATION, EVEN OF LIFE ETERNAL. --- [Abraham 2: 6 & 8-11 - Pearl of Great Price] --- (But only verse 11 shown here)]

{Life Eternal = Being Equal With God, or in other words, living God's life(style)} "


"9 But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honor; that He by the grace of God should taste death for every man."

{More specifically, that The Saviour should taste Spiritual Death for every man.}

14 Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, He also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death He might destroy him that had the power of {Spiritual} death, that is, the Devil. ..."

"16 For verily He took not on Him the nature of angels; BUT HE TOOK ON HIM THE SEED OF ABRAHAM." --- [Hebrews 2: 9 & 14 & 16 - Bible]

{In Jesus taking on "THE SEED OF ABRAHAM," The Gospel of Jesus Christ merged with "THE SEED OF ABRAHAM" so that you cannot have one without the other at the same time.}


"13 FOR WHEN GOD MADE PROMISE TO ABRAHAM, BECAUSE HE" {God} "COULD SWARE BY NO GREATER" {NO GREATER THAN HIMSELF (BECAUSE HE WAS GOD AND NO ONE ELSE WAS GREATER OR HIGHER THAN HIM) } , HE {God} "SWARE BY HIMSELF."

"14 Saying, Surely blessing I will bless thee, and multiplying I will multiply thee. ..."

"17 WHEREIN GOD, WILLING MORE ABUNDANTLY TO SHOW UNTO THE HEIRS OF PROMISE {the Heirs of The Promise of Eternal Life, which is the Promise that we can inherit God's Lifestyle} "the immutability of His council, CONFIRMED IT BY AN OATH:"

{ "By THE OATH AND COVENANT WHICH BELONGETH TO THE PRIESTHOOD." }

"18 THAT BY TWO"

{The Melchizedek Priesthood and The Aaronic Priesthood}

"IMMUTABLE THINGS,"

{again, by these TWO PRIESTHOODS}

"IN WHICH IT WAS IMPOSSIBLE FOR GOD TO LIE, WE MIGHT HAVE A STRONG CONSOLATION, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us:" --- [Hebrews 6: 13-14 & 17-18 - Bible]


"33 FOR WHOSO IS FAITHFUL UNTO THE OBTAINING OF THESE TWO PRIESTHOODS" {The Melchizedek Priesthood and The Aaronic Priesthood} OF WHICH I HAVE SPOKEN, AND THE MAGNIFYING THEIR CALLING, are sanctified by the Spirit unto the renewing of their bodies."

{That our bodies MAY BE FASHIONED LIKE UNTO HIS GLORIOUS BODY}

"34 THEY BECOME THE SONS OF MOSES AND OF AaRON AND THE SEED OF ABRAHAM, AND THE CHURCH and kingdom, and the elect of God."

"35 AND ALSO ALL THEY WHO RECEIVE THIS PRIESTHOOD RECEIVE ME, saith The Lord;"

"36 For he that receiveth my servants receiveth me;"

"37 And he that receiveth me receiveth my Father;"

"38 And he that receiveth my Father receiveth my Father's kingdom; therefore ALL THAT MY FATHER HATH SHALL BE GIVEN UNTO HIM.

"39 AND THIS IS ACCORDING TO THE OATH AND COVENANT WHICH BELONGETH TO THE PRIESTHOOD.

"40 Therefore, ALL THOSE WHO RECEIVE THE PRIESTHOOD, RECEIVE THIS OATH AND COVENANT OF MY FATHER, WHICH HE CANNOT BREAK, NEITHER CAN IT BE MOVED." --- [D&C 84: 33-40]


"FOR I AM THE LORD, I CHANGE NOT; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed." --- [Malachi 3: 6 - Bible]


"JESUS CHRIST THE SAME YESTERDAY, TODAY, AND FOREVER." --- [Hebrews 13: 8 - Bible]


"Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from The Father of Lights, WITH WHOM IS NO VARIABLENESS, NEITHER SHADOW OF TURNING." --- [James 1: 17 - Bible]


"For do we not read that GOD IS THE SAME YESTERDAY, TODAY, AND FOREVER, and in Him THERE IS NO VARIABLENESS NEITHER SHADOW OF CHANGING?" --- [Mormon 9: 9 - The Book of Mormon]


"MY COVENANT WILL I NOT BREAK, NOR ALTER THE THING THAT IS GONE OUT OF MY LIPS." --- [Psalm 89: 34 - Bible]

{He has given us the Promise of Eternal Life which is the same as saying "YE ARE GODS" and He will not alter this thing that } IS GONE OUT OF MY LIPS."


"GOD IS NOT A MAN THAT HE SHOULD LIE; neither the Son of Man, that he should repent: HATH HE SAID, AND SHALL HE NOT DO IT? OR HATH HE SPOKEN, AND SHALL HE NOT MAKE IT GOOD?" --- [Numbers 23: 19 - Bible]


{Because of the confidence we can have in Our Father's OATH AND COVENANT WHICH BELONGETH TO THE PRIESTHOOD, we can therefore} "PRESS TOWARD ... THE HIGH CALLING OF GOD" even as Paul did:}

"I PRESS TOWARD ... THE HIGH CALLING OF GOD"

"IN CHRIST JESUS." --- [Philippians 3: 14 - Bible]


"Wherefore, holy brethren, PARTAKERS OF THE HEAVENLY CALLING,

{ "THE HEAVENLY CALLING" is the same as "THE HIGH CALLING OF GOD."

"THE HEAVENLY CALLING" means "YE ARE GODS!" , and "YE ARE GODS!" means that ye have received "THE HIGH CALLING OF GOD IN CHRIST JESUS?" }

{When that day comes for those who have perfected themselves in Christ Jesus, God The Father will lay His hands on their heads and bestow upon them all of his powers and gifts and godliness --- so that they too have these powers and gifts and godliness, they will become "EQUAL WITH GOD" at that day, and both will rejoice together, for they have been tested and tried and proven worthy to receive} ALL THAT HE HAS!

{continuing:} "consider the apostle and High Priest of our profession, Christ Jesus;" --- [Hebrews 3: 1 - Bible]


"FOR SUCH AN HIGH PRIEST BECAME US, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, AND MADE HIGHER THAN THE HEAVENS." --- [Hebrews 7: 26 - Bible]


"To perform the mercy promised to our fathers, and TO REMEMBER HIS HOLY COVENANT; THE OATH {Shortened to "THE OATH," in long written out form it means: THE OATH & COVENANT OF THE PRIESTHOOD" }

"WHICH HE SWEAR TO OUR FATHER ABRAHAM." --- [Luke 1: 72-73 - Bible]


"And it shall come to pass that MY PEOPLE, WHICH ARE OF THE HOUSE OF ISRAEL,." shall be gathered home unto the lands of their possessions; and My Word Also Shall Be Gathered In One. And I will show unto them that fight against my word and MY PEOPLE, WHO ARE OF THE HOUSE OF ISRAEL, that I am God, and THAT I COVENANTED WITH ABRAHAM THAT I WOULD REMEMBER HIS SEED FOREVER." --- [2nd Nephi 29: 14 - The Book of Mormon]


"7 Know ye therefore that THEY WHICH ARE OF FAITH, THE SAME ARE THE CHILDREN OF ABRAHAM..."

{Which means it isn't hard to become part of The Abrahamic Covenant: When you believe and accept and obey Jesus Christ, in other words, "THEY WHICH ARE OF FAITH," are automatically adopted into The Abrahamic Covenant. Therefore you really do not even need to know about The Abrahamic Covenant, other than in so knowing you add another piece to your testimony of the truthfulness about The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, which is the only Church which really bears witness of what The Abrahamic Covenant is about. }

"8 And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the heathen through faith, PREACHED BEFORE THE GOSPEL UNTO ABRAHAM, saying, In thee shall all nations be blessed.

"9 So then THEY WHICH BE OF FAITH ARE BLESSED WITH FAITHFUL ABRAHAM." --- [Galatians 3: 7-9 Bible]


"16 Now TO ABRAHAM AND HIS SEED WERE THE PROMISES MADE." He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of ONE, And to thy seed, WHICH IS CHRIST."

"17 And this I say, that the covenant that was confirmed before of God in Christ, the Law {of Moses}, which was four hundred and thirty years after, cannot disannul, that it should make "THE PROMISE" {of the Holy Priesthood promising Eternal Life or "YE ARE GODS" to all of us "of none effect."

"18 For if the inheritance" { "YE ARE GODS"} "be of the Law," {of Moses} "it is no more a PROMISE; BUT GOD GAVE IT TO ABRAHAM BY PROMISE."

"19 Wherefore then serveth the Law {of Moses}? It was added because of transgressions, TILL THE SEED SHOULD COME TO WHOM THE PROMISE WAS MADE;." and it was ordained by angels in the hand of a mediator. ..."

{Verse 20 was not relevant so I skipped it.}

"21 Is The Law {of Moses} then against THE PROMISES OF GOD?." God forbid: for if there had been a law given which could have given {Eternal} LIFE," verily righteousness should have been by The Law {of Moses}?

"22 But the scripture hath concluded all under sin, that THE PROMISE BY FAITH" of Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe.

"23 But before FAITH" {in Jesus Christ and His Gospel} "came, we were kept under The Law {of Moses}, shut up unto the FAITH which should afterwards be revealed.

"24 Wherefore The Law {of Moses} was our schoolmaster TO BRING US UNTO CHRIST, THAT WE MIGHT BE JUSTIFIED BY FAITH."

"25 But after that FAITH" {in Jesus Christ and His Gospel} "is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster."

"26 FOR YE ARE ALL THE CHILDREN OF GOD BY FAITH IN CHRIST JESUS."

"27 FOR AS MANY OF YOU AS HAVE BEEN BAPTIZED INTO CHRIST HAVE PUT ON CHRIST."

{More fully, AS MANY OF YOU AS HAVE put on The Melchizedek Priesthood have Put On Christ.}

"28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male or female: for ye are all ONE." in Christ Jesus.

{One in purpose and goal and unity.}

"29 AND IF YE BE CHRIST'S, THEN ARE YE ABRAHAM'S SEED, and heirs according to THE PROMISE." {OF ETERNAL LIFE}

{ "AND THIS IS THE PROMISE THAT HE HATH PROMISED US, EVEN ETERNAL LIFE." } --- [1st John 2: 25 - Bible] }

--- [Galatians 3: 16-29 - Bible]


{And this "PROMISE" is fulfilled not only in The Gospel of Jesus Christ per se, but also in "THE PROMISE" given to Abraham, called The Abrahamic Covenant.}


{And this I bear testimony to you, IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST. Amen. --- (Brother Erving Axel Lambert - 1/25/2017)
