Hebrews 12:2

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 2 Turn you eyes away from other things and fix them on Jesus, the author and finisher [perfecter] of our faith,2 who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. [By revelations to you Jesus authors your faith, increases your faith, and finally perfects your faith, until you attain salvation, (freedom from sin), and later union with Christ and God. From the Word of the Lord within: "Faith is a series of revelations." You sit and wait on God, listening, watching, and then obeying. His spoken words heard impart the life of God into your heart, John 6:63. You grow in faith with each revelation received. ]

Galatians 5:22-23

 22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace (quietness and confident trust forever), patience (including longsuffering, steadfastness, and perseverance), kindness (including morality and integrity), goodness, faithfulness, [From the Word of the Lord within, "until you witness receiving faith from Christ, you are under the law." Until you are led by the spirit, you are under the law, Gal 5:18; when you receive this fruit, you are then led by the Spirit. Those branches without fruit are thrown into the fire.]

 23 Gentleness (including meekness and humility), and self-control (mastery of sensual appetites, passions, and desires). Against these there is no law.5 [After you have mortified and crucified your sinful nature on the inward cross of self-denial, you receive the fruit of the spirit. Then you are no longer subject to the law because then you are led by the Spirit. Rom 8:14, Gal 3:25, 5:18. The law has dominion over a man until his death, Rom 7:1, which death occurs when he has been crucified, Rom 7:6,Gal 2:20; as the next verse emphasizes.]

Galatians 3:25

 25 But after that, when faith [received with the fruit of the Spirit] has come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster [the law that is on everyone's heart].4 [The faith that comes, is the faith received as a part of the fruit of the Spirit, after you have crucified your sinful nature on the inward cross of self-denial. Faith is not belief in Jesus based on the historical accuracy of the Bible; faith is hearing the word of God from within your heart, for faith is the gift of God and is authored by revelation from Jesus Christ. Paul further tells us: if (and when) you are led (prompted, ordered, commanded) by the Spirit, you are not under the law, Gal 5:18. To be led, is to have the Spirit prompt your thoughts, words, and deeds. Before Christ appears in your heart with the fruit of the Spirit to continually lead and prompt you, all the commands you hear from the Lord are also written in your heart to clarify and add to the law in every man's heart, which is your schoolmaster to be continually obeyed.]
