Who are the bond children? Who are the free children? The answer to these questions is of utmost importance to God’s children.Gal.2:21—I do not frustrate the GRACE of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then CHRIST IS DEAD IN VAIN.Gal.3:10—For as many as are of the works of the law are under the CURSE; for it is written, Cursed is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them.v11—But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is evident: for, The just shall live by faith.V13–Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree;V14—That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through FAITH.Gal.2:16–Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified. Gal.3:18—For if the inheritance be of the law, it is no more of promise: but God gave it to Abraham by promise.v19–Wherefore then serveth the law? It was added because of transgressions, till the seed should come to whom the promise was made; and it was ordained by angels in the hand of a mediator.V21–Is the law then against the promises of God? God forbid: for if there had been a law given which could have given life, verily righteousness should have been by the law.V23–But before faith came, we were kept under the law, shut up unto the faith which should afterwards be revealed.V24–Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith.V25–But after that faith is come, we are NO LONGER under a schoolmaster. — (no longer under the law).v26—For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.Now, there is the answer: the children of God are the ones who come in, not by the works of the law, but by faith in Jesus.Chapter 4 tells of those who foolishly went back to the works of the law, after having been set free. He said they observed days, months and times and years (the things called for by the law). Because of this, he was afraid his labor on them was in vain. He called it bondage. Just read this chapter, it is too much to quote it all. v21–He tells them that desire to be under the law that this is the bond child; and that the bond child is not heir with the free child. The free children being those who live by faith—Grace.cp.5:4–Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace. v1– tells us to stand fast in the liberty of Christ and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.If you will read this book, you will see clearly laid out that those trying to keep the law are the ones in bondage; for the law is the yoke of bondage that Christ set us free from.So, now, as then, those who go back to the law, are the bond children. Christ is of no effect to you.Being in Grace sets us free. Read 3:27-29—. In Christ there is only ONE, we are all the same; that sets women out from under the law that she can’t teach; it sets us all free; but if you go back and try to be justified by keeping the law; you go back to the bondage. It is not talking about the natural Jew; (what one is in the flesh has nothing to do with it); it is how you seek to be justified; that determines if you are bond children or free children.Jesus is separating the sheep from the goats now. It is not something to be done later. This is also why He can not ever, as some think ‘turn’ back to a ‘natural Jew nation’; the separation now is weather you seek to be justified by law or pure faith. It you try to keep the law, it makes you a ‘goat’; hence, the children of the flesh, the natural Jew, the old Jerusalem. But if you seek justification purely by faith in Jesus, that makes you children of promise, the free children, the spiritual, the sheep, the Heavenly Jerusalem.This is how we receive the adoption of sons; by faith. Jesus was made of a woman, made under the law to redeem those under the law; that means to set them free from the bondage of the law.Romans 7 tells the condition of mankind under the law. I know many try to say this is Christians; but no, it plainly says that this is men under the law. They were in bondage and sin.Chapter 8 tells the condition of Christians; no condemnation to those of us who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. v2—For the LAW of the Spirit. of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the LAW of sin and death.There are two laws. One the law of sin and death. That is the law written on stones, given by Moses. The other law is that of faith in Jesus; Grace.This chapter plainly shows that to go be the Law of Moses is to be carnally minded; the fruit which is death. But to walk after the Spirit is to be Spiritual minded; the fruit which is life eternal. This is the ones who are justified by faith; not the law.11Cor. 3—This tells that the law written in stones (the 10 commandments) was the ministration of death. It is called the ‘letter’; the letter killeth.Grace is called the ‘spirit’; the spirit giveth life.V7 tells that the law given by Moses was to be done away.v11–For if that which is done away was glorious, much more that which remaineth is glorious.v13—And not as Moses which put a veil over his face, that the children of Israel could not stedfastly look to the end of that which is ABOLISHED.Heb. 7:19—For the law made nothing perfect, but the bringing in of a better hope did; by the which we draw nigh unto God.Heb.8:7–For if that first covenant had been faultless, then should no place have been sought for the second.V10 he put his law in our mind.v13—In that he saith, A new covenant, he hath made the first old. Now that which decayeth and waxeth old is ready to vanish away.So, this shows that to go back to the old law, after Grace came , puts you back into bondage; gives you a carnal mind; this brings death; this makes one be the bond children. So, it is the ones trying to be justified by keeping the old law that are the bond children. They will not be heir with the free children ( the one justified by faith).It has not one thing to do with what nationality one is; it is totally how one tries to be justified; either by law or by faith. The children of the flesh, these are not the children of God.–Romans 9:8. When he speaks of the children of the flesh, he is not saying that they are sinning; he is saying they seek to be justified by the works of the law; tithing, Sabbath keeping, certain feasts, any of that stuff.The children of faith, these are the free children; the children of God. These are the New Jerusalem.Jo

I love Jesus. And I only read the King James Scriptures.
