The Promise of the Seed

Galatians 3:6-29 talks about Abraham’s faith, how that kind of faith is counted as righteousness, and that if we, today, possess that same kind of faith in God, we are Abraham’s seed.

Specifically, that faith is in Jesus Christ, who was promised to come through Abraham’s descendants; and because we have that faith, we are the seed that came from that Seed.

So, what about the Law that came through Moses to the Israelites? The promise of the seed came first, the Law was later written so that man would see in the physical what violations of righteousness were being committed in the spiritual.

Jesus always was. The promise came first, but if we believe in Christ, we are no longer under that schoolmaster (implemented to teach us what sin is), that substitute, that babysitter, Law. Gal. 3:21-25

Where does that leave us? The promise of the Seed was made before the Law. The Law can’t abolish God’s promise; indeed, nothing can.

So, this Law was set in place to expose men to their sins and acts of sins, thereby proving they were guilty of being sinful and needed at Savior. But, it was in place only until the fulfillment of the Seed should come. Christ.

He came to take away the sins of the world, and is available to all, received by those who believe by faith.

The just shall live by faith, as Abraham did; counted as righteous. Thus, being Abraham’s seed.
