Reflection. Being under the Act or under the Spirit. By Fabian Massa

Translated from Spanish to English with Google translator.

On the texts of Galatians and Hebrews 5.19-23 5.11 to 6.2

Within the context of the Letter to the Galatians, the Apostle defends the freedom we have in Christ attack Judaizing teachers, who claimed to be a Christian, one must first be a Jew, ie comply with the Law of Moses.
Moreover, in Hebrews 5.11 to 6.2 author explains the whys of no growth of a congregation. Consider the two texts together:
If we read in depth Galatians 5.16 to 18 we find the following:
16 I say then, Walk in the Spirit and not fulfill the lust of the flesh.
17 For the desire of the flesh are against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; these are opposed to each other, to prevent you from doing what you would.
18 But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.
Paul here presents the dilemma from a very acute angle:

1. Those who walk in the natural

a. They live satisfying sinful desires, which lead them to commit Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, envy, murders, drunkenness, orgies and things like these. (Galatians 5.19 to 21). Those who walk this way not enter the Kingdom of God, ie they NOT SAVED although they go to all Cults throughout their lives and have done 1,000 times the famous prayer of delivery.

b. Those who walk in the natural, despite being living in the Age of Grace, still remain under the condemnation of the law, which is punishing its manifestations. So they continue to need each Worship be preached to the same elementary things of the Word of God (Hebrews 5:12) which are: repentance from acts that lead to death, faith in God, instruction about baptisms , the laying on of hands, the resurrection of the dead and eternal judgment (Hebrews 6.1-2).

c. A "natural" their pastors can not preach nothing but the Law: That is all that is sin, Sunday after Sunday. Not many verses, but small slogans:
· Brother is necessary to pray
· Brother is necessary to forgive
· Let idolatry, strife. And the whole list of Galatians 5.19-21
· The "Natural" are not in grace, but in the condemnation of the law, which systematically violated.

2. Those who walk in the Spirit

a. What are all those who have left thick sins, to call in some way. They have already left behind the Works of the Flesh and now how spiritual walk, and so manifest the fruit of the Spirit in them love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance; against such there is no law. Galatians 5.22-23.

b. Those who walk in the Spirit, being holy (justified by faith) and walk in a progressive holiness (ie putting into practice the Word of Justice in their daily lives) can move toward what follows, it is to understand the prophetic Word , understand the times, signs and marvel at the depth of God's Word.

c. A spiritual, their pastors and teachers can teach them other things such as prophecy and its fulfillment, eschatology, history, etc. And all this as leverage to open another work and continue to expand the Kingdom.
For as the Lord teaches in Isaiah 35.8, the Way of Holiness is now called, unclean does not pass him, but only the redeemed of the Lord, that is only the born-again. To them the same way the will guide not to get out of it (ie they go perfect in their sanctification). Natural can not enter, so every worship pastor them again preach the same message of the punishments of the Law for his works of the flesh.

3. Conclusion

Only be the Born Again Church. Others will always be next to the road without ever entering, unless they die to their old life. (Parable of the Sower in Mark 4, Cf, Isaiah 6.9-13).

If you are part of a congregation in which one is predicated of the law regulating or punishes the Works of the Flesh (99%) you should try to grow eating Word, for that is the biblical commentaries and some serious studying places.

If you are a minister and you are in this position since the last 25 years, you need to understand that your responsibility as Pastor is that your church understand the message and the prophetic times. If not there something you're doing wrong.

Week 70 is about to begin, not much time left. For your preaching will be saved or damned.
