LLM Question for 1-1-2012, and, THE LLM STUDY OF THE EPISTLE TO THE GALATIANS, CHAPTER 3, PART 2 of 3

May this New Year Be Blessed for You in the LORD!Now, whether or not you decide to address your shortcomings with a New Year’s Day resolution is up to you. But when these resolutions fail, we tend to put off addressing the problem again until NEXT New Year’s Day! A much better solution is found in the use of the word...HENCEFORTH, used by the Holy Spirit through the Apostle Paul. It is far better to encourage the people of God to take a moment and reflect when they see a HENCEFORTH and ask, WHENCEFORTH? The answer to WHENCEFORTH should not be limited to the first day of the New Year, but rather every time you read a HENCEFORTH verse. Then when we read the Words of the Holy Spirit through the Apostle Paul, “henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk” (Ephesians 4:17), and “henceforth we should not serve sin” (Romans 6:6), we should renew our determination to obey these admonitions with EVERY reading of such verses. Remember, “He died for all, that they which live should not HENCEFORTH …

First the Question: No prayer, no agonizing, no religious struggle is required on the part of the BELIEVER in Christ to receive the Holy Spirit. True or False?Please take a moment to respond at the LLM Question of the DayAnd now the answer to the LLM Question of 12-23-2011Question: The Holy Spirit is God’s gift to the BELIEVER. Romans 5:5. The BELIEVER receives the Holy Spirit the very moment he BELIEVES the Gospel of his Salvation. True or False?Answer: TRUE! A Christian is one who receives the Holy Spirit, and baptism into the Body of Christ, at the time he or she becomes a Christian. Tarrying meetings for the Holy Spirit have no place in the spiritual program which the Risen Christ gave, through the Apostle Paul, for the members of His Body. The earnest, the sealing, or the baptism in, or with, or by, the Holy Spirit is always a PAST experience with the believer. Now, out of the 804 responses we received to this question, 87.8% of you got it right. Praise the LORD! Therefore, now, …

“For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the LORD.” Luke 2:11It is with much praise and thanksgiving to our Great God and Saviour, the LORD Jesus Christ, that we want to convey our appreciation to all those who faithfully pray for us and stand with us in the defense and confirmation of the Gospel of God's Grace in this present Dispensation of Grace, the Dispensation of the Mystery.

First the Question: The Holy Spirit is God’s gift to the BELIEVER. Romans 5:5. The BELIEVER receives the Holy Spirit the very moment he BELIEVES the Gospel of his Salvation. True or False?Please take a moment to respond at the LLM Question of the DayAnd now the answer to the LLM Question of 12-20-2011Question: The BELIEVER in Christ is not justified by the Law before he is saved; nor is he justified by the Law after he is saved. True or False?Answer: TRUE! To teach that Law mixed with Grace will in any way aid, compliment, or assist, in the justification of a BELIEVING sinner is to frustrate the Grace of God. And the mixed message is a perverted Gospel, another gospel, which subverts the soul, and is therefore ANATHEMA. Now, out of the 714 responses we received to this question, 96.6% of you got it right.

First the Question: The BELIEVER in Christ is not justified by the Law before he is saved; nor is he justified by the Law after he is saved. True or False?Please take a moment to respond at the LLM Question of the DayAnd now the answer to the LLM Question of 12-18-2011Question: The Apostle Paul did NOT work under the authority of the Apostle Peter with his keys. But contrariwise. Galatians 2:7. True or False?Answer: TRUE! We would emphasize the words “but contrariwise.” This suggests the very opposite of what might be expected. The twelve apostles were chosen and commissioned some time before the Apostle Paul was sent by the Risen Christ. But instead of Paul receiving his authority and his Gospel message from the Twelve, the Twelve learned from him, for the first time, just what was the “Gospel of the Un-circumcision”. Many Children of God have derived benefit and deliverance from some religious entanglement by the careful study of Galatians 2:7-9. Now, out of the 703 responses we rec…

First the Question: The Apostle Paul did NOT work under the authority of the Apostle Peter with his keys. But contrariwise. Galatians 2:7. True or False?Please take a moment to respond at the LLM Question of the DayAnd now the answer to the LLM Question of 12-16-2011Question: The Apostle Paul did not need instructions from the 12 apostles to give him either his Gospel message, or Divine authority to proclaim that message. True or False?Answer: TRUE! We observed in Galatians 1:23 that the Apostle Paul at FIRST preached the Faith which once he destroyed. The Faith which once Paul destroyed was the message which Peter and the Eleven were proclaiming in the first seven chapters of the Book of Acts. NOT ONE of them had proclaimed the very same Gospel program which the Apostle Paul preached among the Gentiles, and which HE communicated TO the Apostles at Jerusalem...14 years after. Therefore, we know that Paul was NOT preaching during the first years of his ministry the Gospel to which he r…

True or False?Please take a moment to respond at the LLM Question of the DayAnd now the answer to the LLM Question of 12-13-2011Question: Does Acts 15:7 show that the Apostle Peter was called to share the ministry of the Apostle Paul? Yes or No?Answer: NO! We might think from Acts 15:7, that the Apostle Peter was called to share this ministry with the Apostle Paul, BUT Galatians 2:7-9, proves otherwise. Now, out of the 753 responses we received to this question, 82.4% of you got it right. Praise the LORD! Therefore, now, let us take a look at...THE LLM STUDY OF THE EPISTLE TO THE GALATIANS, CHAPTER 1, PART 3 of 3Let’s take a look at the Apostle Paul’s defense before Agrippa and the Jews in Acts 26:4-5 and Acts 26:9, “My manner of life from my youth, which was at first among mine own Nation at Jerusalem, know all the J…

Yes or No?Please take a moment to respond at the LLM Question of the DayAnd now the answer to the LLM Question of 12-10-2011Question: Not only was the authority of the Apostle Paul Christ given, but his message was received directly from the Risen Christ in heaven. True or False?Answer: TRUE! When Stephen, in Acts 7, and Philip, in Acts 8, preached, they were ministering under the authority of the Twelve Apostles. Note Acts 8:12-16. But the labors of the Apostle Paul were independent of the Twelve. Read Acts 22:17-21. He was NOT one of the Twelve. His commission was by direct revelation from the Risen Christ in Heaven. Now, out of the 722 responses we received to this question, 96.3% of you got it right. Praise the LORD!

True or False?Please take a moment to respond at the LLM Question of the DayAnd now the answer to the LLM Question of 12-8-2011Question: In the Epistles of the Apostle Paul he does not deal with the doings and teachings of Jesus of Nazareth on earth. True or False?Answer: TRUE! "Who gave Himself for our sins". Galatians 1:4. It is interesting and significant to note that in the messages of Paul he does not deal with the doings and teachings of Jesus of Nazareth on earth. He begins with the death and resurrection of Christ. The believer must be identified with Christ in death before He can live with Him. Now, out of the 702 responses we received to this question, 60.9% of you got it right. So, we need some work in this area.

Acts 15:13-30. True or False?Answer: TRUE! The Apostle Peter does occupy a very prominent place in the first half of the Book of Acts, BUT he is NOT mentioned after the Jerusalem Council. Acts 15:13-30. In the last half of the Book of Acts, Paul is the principal human actor. In Acts 13-28, we have the record of the Apostle Paul and those who have dealings with him.

True or False?Please take a moment to respond at the LLM Question of the DayAnd now the answer to the LLM Question of 12-4-2011Question: The messages of Peter and the Eleven, in Acts 1-9, were addressed to ISRAEL alone. True or False?Answer: TRUE! The Apostle Peter was a minister of the circumcision with the Gospel of the circumcision. During the “Acts” period Peter and the Eleven remained in Jerusalem. Galatians 2:8-9, and Acts 8:1. Their messages, during the first nine chapters of Acts were addressed to “Israel” alone. Twelve Apostles for twelve tribes. The “Twelve” is significant. The Apostle Paul was sent out of Jerusalem to the Gentiles. Acts 22:17-21. Now, out of the 712 responses we received to this question, only 68.2% of you got it right.
