The Guardian and Trainer

Heirs of the Promise

 


Galatians 3:23-29

But before fidelity (belief) came, we were being guarded under torah, having been shut off from the fidelity (belief) about to be revealed.  Therefore the torah became our trainer unto Messiah, in order to be declared right by fidelity (belief).  And after fidelity (belief) has come, we are no longer under a trainer.  For you are all sons of Elohim through trusting fidelity (belief) in Messiah.  For as many of you as were immersed into Messiah have put on Messiah.  There is not Yahudi nor Greek (the 2 sticks are made one), there is not slave nor free, there is not male and female, for you are all one in Messiah. (one nation, one people, one inheritance)  And if you are of Messiah, then you are seed of Abraham, and heirs according to promise.

The Guardian and Trainer

23  But before fidelity (belief) came, we were being guarded under Torah, having been shut off from the fidelity (belief) about to be revealed.

24  Therefore the Torah became our trainer unto Messiah, in order to be declared right by fidelity (belief).

25  And after fidelity (belief) has come, we are no longer under a trainer.  

The Trainer is the Oral Torah

“We were being guarded under torah” which means… The guardians of the guardians were watching over us.  The guardians are the Pharisaic “fence” – the oral torah which guards the guardians.  In Pharisaic thinking, the oral torah supersedes the written Torah – the guardians (oral) of the guardians (written).

We are no longer under these guardians – the Pharisees and their Oral Torah.  The Oral Torah was the “training wheels” added to the written Torah to help us navigate our way through life.

Gal 3:23 having been shut off from the fidelity

Mattityahu 23:13 "But woe to you, experts in the law and you Pharisees, hypocrites! You keep locking people out of the kingdom of heaven! For you neither enter nor permit those trying to enter to go in.

The Pharisees were shutting people off of true fidelity and obedience to written Scripture.  Unto Messiah – Yahusha’ corrected all that when he rebuked the scribes and Pharisees and upheld the written Torah.  We are no longer under the authority of the Oral Law

Heirs of the Promise

Gal 3:26  For you are all sons of Elohim through trusting fidelity (belief) in Messiah  .

27  For as many of you as were immersed into Messiah have put on Messiah.

28  There is not Yahudi nor Greek (the 2 sticks are made one), there is not slave nor free, there is not male and female, for you are all one in Messiah. (one nation, one people, one inheritance)

29  And if you are of Messiah, then you are seed of Abraham, and heirs according to promise.
