Redeemed From The Curse
John 19:30. It is finished and as a result it is forever gone.
1) The old man, the old nature is dead. The new man the new nature is made alive. Romans 6:6 w/ 2 Corinthians 5:17.
2) Satan is defeated, his works destroyed. 1 John 3:8. “He that commits sin is of the devil; for the devil sins from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil.” John 14:12-14. Our responsibility is to enforce Jesus’ victory.
3) End of the Law-New Dispensation-Grace. Romans 10:4; Galatians 2 :16-21; Ephesians 2:5-9, 14-15, 3:1-2.
I) Galatians 3:13-14 “Christ has re-deemed us from the curse of the law being made a curse for us for it is written cursed is everyone that hangs on a tree. That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through faith.”
James 2:10 “For whoever shall keep the whole law yet stumble in one point is guilty of all.”
Galatians 3:10 “For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse; for it is written, cursed is everyone who does not continue in all things which are written in the book of the law, to do them.”
A) The curse, not curses is of the Law. We are redeemed from all curses because we have been redeemed from the curse of the Law. So what is the curse of the Law? Romans 5:13 (For until the law sin was in the world: but sin is not imputed when there is no law.)
Sin-Greek-hamartia-missing the mark. Galations 5:1-4; Romans 7:7-11. Paul said that he would not have known sin except for the Law. He said he was alive once but when the Law was given sin revived and he died. Jesus came and He nailed the Law to the cross. He became the very essence of sin so that we could become the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. 2 Corinthians 5:21;Galatians 3:13; Colossians 2:14.
Job 9:2 “I know it is so of a truth: but how should man be just with or before God.”
Romans 4: 1-16. Abraham-an example of and forerunner of justification by faith. So how does God deal with this issue? First, He crucifies the old man. Secondly, he abolishes the Law of sin and death.
II) Galatians 3:14 Not blessings of Abraham but blessing. What is the blessing of Abraham?
Imputed- righteousness by faith!
No imputation of sin!
Romans 8:15-17 “For you have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear,but you have received the Spirit of adoption by which we cry out Abba, Father. The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are sons of God. And if sons of God then heirs-heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together.”
Heirs of this world and joint heirs or possessors or inheritors of and with Jesus Christ.
Galatians 3:29 “And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed and heirs according to the promise.” Heirs of what promise?
Galatians 3:14 “that the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ: that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith (in Him).
End: Romans 5: 17-21. What was the main thrust of the gospel that Paul preached?
Acts 13:38-39 ” Therefore let it be known to you, brethren, that through this man(Jesus) is preached to you forgiveness of sins, and by him everyone who believes is justified from all things from which you could not be justified by the Law of Moses.”
