From Gary... GPS


Can you imagine trying to navigate this little corner of Terra Firma?  Looks impossible, but, hey, people will surprise you sometimes.  However, in "normal" life things can go awry quickly.  Marriages, Jobs, Children, Parents, and countless other things can "screw things up".  In the midst of a world that lately has seemingly gone crazy, Jesus offers hope; hope in the form of himself.  But, lets let him do the talking.

John, Chapter 14

 6  Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father, except through me.

The "way" in Greek means road or path.  The truth is absolute, as is the Life.  There is one and only one (notice the "the") means of escape from being lost in a world full of sin- Jesus.  He alone will give you permanent answers and guidance to successfully navigate our sojourn here.  Honestly, sometimes I get discouraged and want to give up, but even at those "worst of times", I know that there is really a way out and it is in the person and work of the anointed of God- Jesus!!! Somehow, when I look at this picture, I am reminded of the soap-opera whose introduction goes something like "like sand though the hourglass, so are the days of our lives".  Although there was a lot of intrigue and excitement with this soap, it never really did give you the answers you need to navigate the pitfalls of life.  Jesus does and will continue to do so.  He didn't say: the way, the truth and the life for nothing- its true.

PS.  In case you are wondering about the title- It does NOT mean "Global Position System".  Rather, it means: God's Pointing Son.  In the first two words that Jesus speaks, he is literally saying- I, myself am.  It is as if he reached away from himself and deliberately pointed himself out to us!!! Nice way to get directions!!!

Galatians 3

Gal 3:1 Foolish Galatians, who has bewitched you not to obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ was openly set forth among you as crucified?
Gal 3:2 I just want to learn this from you. Did you receive the Spirit by the works of the law, or by hearing of faith?
Gal 3:3 Are you so foolish? Having begun in the Spirit, are you now completed in the flesh?
Gal 3:4 Did you suffer so many things in vain, if it is indeed in vain?
Gal 3:5 He therefore who supplies the Spirit to you, and works miracles among you, does he do it by the works of the law, or by hearing of faith?
Gal 3:6 Even as Abraham "believed God, and it was counted to him for righteousness."
Gal 3:7 Know therefore that those who are of faith, the same are children of Abraham.
Gal 3:8 The Scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, preached the Good News beforehand to Abraham, saying, "In you all the nations will be blessed."
Gal 3:9 So then, those who are of faith are blessed with the faithful Abraham.
Gal 3:10 For as many as are of the works of the law are under a curse. For it is written, "Cursed is everyone who doesn't continue in all things that are written in the book of the law, to do them."
Gal 3:11 Now that no man is justified by the law before God is evident, for, "The righteous will live by faith."
Gal 3:12 The law is not of faith, but, "The man who does them will live by them."
Gal 3:13 Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us. For it is written, "Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree,"
Gal 3:14 that the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Christ Jesus; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.
Gal 3:15 Brothers, speaking of human terms, though it is only a man's covenant, yet when it has been confirmed, no one makes it void, or adds to it.
Gal 3:16 Now the promises were spoken to Abraham and to his seed. He doesn't say, "To seeds," as of many, but as of one, "To your seed," which is Christ.
Gal 3:17 Now I say this. A covenant confirmed beforehand by God in Christ, the law, which came four hundred thirty years after, does not annul, so as to make the promise of no effect.
Gal 3:18 For if the inheritance is of the law, it is no more of promise; but God has granted it to Abraham by promise.
Gal 3:19 What then is the law? It was added because of transgressions, until the seed should come to whom the promise has been made. It was ordained through angels by the hand of a mediator.
Gal 3:20 Now a mediator is not between one, but God is one.
Gal 3:21 Is the law then against the promises of God? Certainly not! For if there had been a law given which could make alive, most certainly righteousness would have been of the law.
Gal 3:22 But the Scriptures imprisoned all things under sin, that the promise by faith in Jesus Christ might be given to those who believe.
Gal 3:23 But before faith came, we were kept in custody under the law, confined for the faith which should afterwards be revealed.
Gal 3:24 So that the law has become our tutor to bring us to Christ, that we might be justified by faith.
Gal 3:25 But now that faith has come, we are no longer under a tutor.
Gal 3:26 For you are all children of God, through faith in Christ Jesus.
Gal 3:27 For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ.
Gal 3:28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free man, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus.
Gal 3:29 If you are Christ's, then you are Abraham's seed and heirs according to promise.

Galatians

 
Galatians 3 1
Foolish Galatians, who has bewitched you not to obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ was openly set forth among you as crucified?
O senseless Galatians, who has bewitched you; to whom, as before your very eyes, Jesus
Christ has been portrayed, crucified [among you]?
O thoughtless Galatians, who did bewitch you, not to obey the truth -- before
whose eyes Jesus Christ was described before among you crucified?
Galatians 3 2
I just want to learn this from you. Did you receive the Spirit by the works of the law, or by
hearing of faith?
This only I wish to learn of you, Have ye received the Spirit on the principle of works of
law, or of [the] report of faith?
this only do I wish to learn from you -- by works of law the Spirit did ye receive,
or by the hearing of faith?
Galatians 3 3
Are you so foolish? Having begun in the Spirit, are you now completed in the flesh?
Are ye so senseless? having begun in Spirit, are ye going to be made perfect in flesh?
so thoughtless are ye! having begun in the Spirit, now in the flesh do ye end?
Galatians 3 4
Did you suffer so many things in vain, if it is indeed in vain?
Have ye suffered so many things in vain, if indeed also in vain?
so many things did ye suffer in vain! if, indeed, even in vain.
Galatians 3 5
He therefore that supplies the Spirit to you, and works miracles among you, does he do it by the works of the law, or by hearing of faith?
He therefore who ministers to you the Spirit, and works miracles among you, [is it] on
the principle of works of law, or of [the] report of faith?
He, therefore, who is supplying to you the Spirit, and working mighty acts among
you -- by works of law or by the hearing of faith [is it]?
Galatians 3 6
Even as Abraham "believed God, and it was counted to him for righteousness."
Even as Abraham believed God, and it was reckoned to him as righteousness.
according as Abraham did believe God, and it was reckoned to him -- to righteousness;
Galatians 3 7
Know therefore that those who are of faith, the same are sons of Abraham.
Know then that they that are on the principle of faith, these are Abraham`s sons;
know ye, then, that those of faith -- these are sons of Abraham,
Galatians 3 8
The scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, preached the gospel
beforehand to Abraham, saying, "In you will all the nations be blessed."
and the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the nations on the principle of faith,
announced beforehand the glad tidings to Abraham: In thee all the nations shall be blessed.
and the Writing having foreseen that by faith God doth declare righteous the
nations did proclaim before the good news to Abraham --
Galatians 3 9
So then, those who are of faith are blessed with the faithful Abraham.
So that they who are on the principle of faith are blessed with believing Abraham.
`Blessed in thee shall be all the nations;` so that those of faith are blessed with the
faithful Abraham,
Galatians 3 10
For as many as are of the works of the law are under a curse. For it is written, "Cursed is
everyone who doesn`t continue in all things that are written in the book of the law, to do them."
For as many as are on the principle of works of law are under curse. For it is written,
Cursed is every one who does not continue in all things which [are] written in the book
of the law to do them;
for as many as are of works of law are under a curse, for it hath been written,
`Cursed [is] every one who is not remaining in all things that have been written
in the Book of the Law -- to do them,`
Galatians 3 11
Now that no man is justified by the law before God is evident, for, "The righteous will live by faith."
but that by law no one is justified with God [is] evident, because The just shall live on the
principle of faith;
and that in law no one is declared righteous with God, is evident, because `The
righteous by faith shall live;`
Galatians 3 12
The law is not of faith, but, "He that does them will live in them."

live by them.
and the law is not by faith, but -- `The man who did them shall live in them.`
Galatians 3 13

written, Cursed [is] every one hanged upon a tree,)
Christ did redeem us from the curse of the law, having become for us a curse, for
it hath been written, `Cursed is every one who is hanging on a tree,`

Galatians 3 15
Brothers, I speak like men. Though it is only a man`s covenant, yet when it has been confirmed, no one makes it void, or adds to it.
Brethren, (I speak according to man,) even man`s confirmed covenant no one sets aside,
or adds other dispositions to.
Brethren, as a man I say [it], even of man a confirmed covenant no one doth make
void or doth add to,
Galatians 3 16
Now the promises were spoken to Abraham and to his seed. He doesn`t say, "To seeds," as of many, but as of one, "To your seed," which is Christ.

seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed; which is Christ.
and to Abraham were the promises spoken, and to his seed; He doth not say, `And
to seeds,` as of many, but as of one, `And to thy seed,` which is Christ;
Galatians 3 17
Now I say this. A covenant confirmed beforehand by God in Christ, the law, which came four hundred and thirty years after, does not annul, so as to make the promise of no effect.
Now I say this, A covenant confirmed beforehand by God, the law, which took place four
hundred and thirty years after, does not annul, so as to make the promise of no effect.
and this I say, A covenant confirmed before by God to Christ, the law, that came
four hundred and thirty years after, doth not set aside, to make void the promise,
Galatians 3 18
For if the inheritance is of the law, it is no more of promise; but God has granted it to Abraham by promise.
For if the inheritance [be] on the principle of law, [it is] no longer on the principle of
promise; but God gave it in grace to Abraham by promise.
for if by law [be] the inheritance, [it is] no more by promise, but to Abraham
through promise did God grant [it].
Galatians 3 19
What then is the law? It was added because of transgressions, until the seed should come to
whom the promise has been made. It was ordained through angels by the hand of a  mediator.
Why then the law? It was added for the sake of transgressions, until the seed came to
whom the promise was made, ordained through angels in [the] hand of a mediator.
Why, then, the law? on account of the transgressions it was added, till the seed
might come to which the promise hath been made, having been set in order
through messengers in the hand of a mediator --
Galatians 3 20
Now a mediator is not between one, but God is one.
But a mediator is not of one, but God is one.
and the mediator is not of one, and God is one --
Galatians 3 21
Is the law then against the promises of God? Certainly not! For if there had been a law given
which could make alive, most assuredly righteousness would have been of the law.
[Is] then the law against the promises of God? Far be the thought. For if a law had been
given able to quicken, then indeed righteousness were on the principle of law;
the law, then, [is] against the promises of God? -- let it not be! for if a law was
given that was able to make alive, truly by law there would have been the righteousness,
Galatians 3 22
But the scriptures shut up all things under sin, that the promise by faith in Jesus Christ might be given to those who believe.
but the scripture has shut up all things under sin, that the promise, on the principle of
faith of Jesus Christ, should be given to those that believe.
but the Writing did shut up the whole under sin, that the promise by faith of
Jesus Christ may be given to those believing.
Galatians 3 23
But before faith came, we were kept in custody under the law, shut up to the faith which should afterwards be revealed.
But before faith came, we were guarded under law, shut up to faith [which was] about to
be revealed.
And before the coming of the faith, under law we were being kept, shut up to the
faith about to be revealed,
Galatians 3 24
So that the law has become our tutor to bring us to Christ, that we might be justified by faith.
So that the law has been our tutor up to Christ, that we might be justified on the
principle of faith.
so that the law became our child-conductor -- to Christ, that by faith we may be
declared righteous,
Galatians 3 25
But now that faith is come, we are no longer under a tutor.
But, faith having come, we are no longer under a tutor;
and the faith having come, no more under a child-conductor are we,

for ye are all God`s sons by faith in Christ Jesus.
for ye are all sons of God through the faith in Christ Jesus,

for ye are all one in Christ Jesus:
there is not here Jew or Greek, there is not here servant nor freeman, there is not
here male and female, for all ye are one in Christ Jesus;
Galatians 3 29
If you are Christ`s, then you are Abraham`s seed, heirs according to promise.
but if *ye* [are] of Christ, then ye are Abraham`s seed, heirs according to promise.
and if ye [are] of Christ then of Abraham ye are seed, and according to promise -- heirs.
