Blog for podcast #2


Welcome to today’s podcast. I am Dreamwalker1960.
Today we will start on our journey to awaken the lukewarm to the reality of the Bible and the importance to have a daily if not hourly relationship with God through His Son the Lord Jesus Christ.
We start in Galatians. Why There? For this is when we truly see the lukewarm already showing their true form.
The lesson
Galatians 1:6- I am shocked that you are turning away so soon from God, who called you to himself through the loving mercy of Christ. You are following a different way that pretends to be the Good News 7 but is not the Good News at all. You are being fooled by those who deliberately twist the truth concerning Christ.
8 Let God’s curse fall on anyone, including us or even an angel from heaven, who preaches a different kind of Good News than the one we preached to you. 9 I say again what we have said before: If anyone preaches any other Good News than the one you welcomed, let that person be cursed.

The breakdown
Verse 6 from the KJV – I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel
Marvel – G2296 – thaumazo – to wonder, to admire [Strong’s]
It is used here in a literary from to express surprise [TDNT]
I actual take the use of the word to not just surprise but a type of sarcasm. He is bewildered and shocked that they would surrender their salvation so easily.
Soon – G5030 – Tacheos – briefly, speedily, rapidly [Strong’s]
So quickly they turn from God.
Removed – G3346 – metatithemi – to transfer, transport, exchange, change sides, pervert [Strong’s]
To turn from, to fall away, to become apostate [TDNT]
Apostate – someone who has given up their religion or left a political party [Cambridge dictionary]
Him that called – G2564 – kaleo – to call
The grace – G5485 – charis – graciousness; the divine influence upon the heart and its reflection in the life [Strong’s]
Christ – Christos
Another – G2087 – heteros – other or different [Strong’s]
Gospel – G2098 – enangelion – a good message, i.e. the gospel [Strong’s]
The implication is clear in this one verse. These people were saved and given salvation in the name of Jesus Christ from God. They were given grace.
“Grace” is a word I hear a lot of. Too many once they receive “Grace” think they are good to go. They are saved. They are fine. They can live their lives as they so seem fit to do so.
This one verse brings the lie to their words. This one verse shows they are lukewarm, and that the lukewarm have existed even in Paul’s time upon this earth. Again we hit upon a future podcast, but we shall continue.
There are many interpretations as to what is meant by another gospel. For that time it was aimed at false apostles. Claiming to represent Jesus and God. My view is that it was aimed for those that live in this time as well, but in a context that fits in today’s body of Christ. Again I will show in another lesson how God includes the time we now live within. But due to this belief “another gospel” has many meanings today. The most important of these is the watered down gospel that is being spoken in the buildings called “churches.” Why? To make money. For if you let people know that they are lukewarm they will not attend these “churches,” because they do not wish to hear that they are living in sin, and so these building will not exist without this false gospel. Moses made it clear in Deuteronomy 4 that we are not to add to nor take away from what is taught in the Bible. Yet most have never heard the verses I am going to address in my teachings unto you my listeners.
Verse 7 from the KJV – Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ.
Trouble – G5015 – tarasso – to stir or agitate (roil water) [Strong’s]
A: roil – to (cause to) move quickly in a twisting circular movement [Cambridge Dictionary]
Pervert – G3344 – metastrepho – to turn across, i.e. transmute or corrupt
a: transmute – to change from one nature, substance, form, or condition into another; transform. [Dictionary.com]
b: corrupt – to change from good to bad in morals, manners, or actions [Merriam-Webster Dictionary]
My translation – There is no other Gospel, but there are some that would twist you and would corrupt the true Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Verse 8 from the KJV – But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.
Angel – G32 – angelos – aggelos – (to bring tidings; a messenger; especially an “angel” [Strong’s]
Heaven – G3772 – ouranos – the sky; by extension heaven (as the abode of God) [Strong’s]
Preach any other gospel – G2097 – euangelizo – euaggelizo – from 2095 (eu, neutral of a primary eus (good); well) and 32 (angelos – see above) to announce good new (“evangelize”) especially the gospel [Strong’s]
Accursed – G331 – anathema – from 394 (anatithemai, to set forth {for oneself} i.e. propound); a (religious) ban or excommunicated (thing or person) [Strong’s]
a: accursed – being under or as if under a curse [Merriam-Webster Dictionary]
a1: curse – exclude from a church or a religious community [Vocabulary.com]
b: excommunicate – 1. to cut off from communion with a church or exclude from the sacraments of a church by ecclesiastical sentence. 2. to exclude or expel from membership or participation in any group, association, etc.
Paul makes it clear that if anyone even themselves or an angelic being preaches another gospel that being is removed from Jesus and thus God.
Verse 9 of the KJV – As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.
Any other – G3844 – para – near, i.e. from beside, at (or in) the vicinity of (object or subject) [Strong’s]
Here Paul re-emphasis that if you are given a good news that is not the exact teachings from the letters or personally from the disciples or the Tanakh that person is cursed.
So when people remove items or change them in the bible which has been done 58 times in the NIV bible that version of the bible is actually cursed and those that changed are as well. Or when they say they have received a gospel or teaching from a glowing angelic form they have received a cursed teaching which has happened two times that I am aware of.
NIV examples –
Philippians 3:21
KJV says, “Vile bodies.” NIV says, “lowly bodies.” These words have different meanings. Vile means sinful and lowly means humble.
Ephesians 5:9
KJV says “Fruit of the Spirit.” NIV says, “Fruit of the light.”
Galatians 4:7
KJV says “servant,” and not “slave,” as translated in the NIV.
A servant has the choice of leaving his master and a slave does not have a choice.
The importance of this translation is that we have a choice of serving Christ or of deserting Him, whereas, a slave does not have that choice.

This is why it is so important to:
1) Study not just read the Bible yourself
2) Do not take the word of others without verification from the Bible
3) Make sure what you are hearing is taken in context from the Bible
May times people take verses from the Bible and use them incorrectly because they are not using them in context.
One of the most misused is do not judge. The main teaching of this is in Matthew 7.
They just throw out the first verse of this teaching “Do not judge others, and you will not be judged.”
Yet it actually ends in context in verse 5
““Do not judge others, and you will not be judged. 2 For you will be treated as you treat others. The standard you use in judging is the standard by which you will be judged. 3 “And why worry about a speck in your friend’s eye when you have a log in your own? 4 How can you think of saying to your friend, ‘Let me help you get rid of that speck in your eye,’ when you can’t see past the log in your own eye? 5 Hypocrite! First get rid of the log in your own eye; then you will see well enough to deal with the speck in your friend’s eye.”
In the Greek the speck is more accurately translated as a splinter of wood. So we are speaking of a splinter and a log, both made of wood. This means the same sin.
Jesus is telling us to address our own sins which are the same but greater than the other persons. Fix our own sin, then once that is done and we are without this sin we can then help the other person.
This deals with hypocrisy. Not judging one another.
Summary
The lukewarm are those that have accepted Jesus Christ as their Savior and have received the grace of salvation from God. But are turned away from God for they listen to a gospel that is not true and accurate to the Old Testament and New Testament as given by God, Jesus and the disciples. So THEY believe they ARE saved. Yet they live their live in sin.
The good news though is that if they come to realize this and to truly seek after God through His Son the Lord Jesus Christ. They can fix this issue.
Many live under the impression that they accept God in the name of Jesus that is all there is to it. They don’t have to do anything else. That is the total opposite of what needs to take place.
They need to seek after God daily not just on Sunday. But every single day. It is an active relationship that God desires from us all. Where we pray to Him many times a day. That we seek to obey the laws of the land that do not go against the laws within the Bible. That we strive not to commit anything that is called a sin within the Bible. We live a daily life in and for God, in the Name of His Son the Lord Jesus Christ.
In the Next podcast we look at John 15 Jesus the Vine those who and do not bear fruit. God bless.
