Remain on Guard

The Bible says “O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that ye should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been evidently set forth, crucified among you? This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith? Are ye so foolish? having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh? Have ye suffered so many things in vain? if it be yet in vain. He therefore that ministereth to you the Spirit, and worketh miracles among you, doeth he it by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?” Galatians 3:1-5 (KJV)

Paul speaks very plainly to the Galatian Believers, chastening them for their straying from the truth. Having begun their walk in the newness of life they have allowed confusion to set in. why has this taken place? It is because that is how the wicked one operates. He knows their souls are secure in Christ Jesus and he cannot touch them. Therefore, he switches tactics. What he now does is to sow confusion and doubt into them in order to keep them from telling others about the truth of salvation by faith in Christ Jesus alone.

Satan is a defeated foe. However, much like a severed head of a poisonous snake is still deadly if you should step upon its fangs, so is the work of the wicked one. He is headed to a Christ-less eternity determined to thwart the Lord in any way he can. By subterfuge this father of lies will twist and distort the truth in any way he can. The Judaizers had followed Paul spreading pitfalls into which some of the Galatian Believers have stepped.

 That is why it is so important for new Believers and old to get into a Bible believing, Bible preaching local body of Believers, spending time in His Word and in prayer that we all may grow ever closer to the Lord and each other. We must remain faithfully on guard against the wiles of the wicked one!
