Galatians 2: 20 sets forth the way God intended for humans to live after Christ died on the cross. In the Bible, there are at least three distinctive Ways presented in different periods of time. These time periods, or the dispensations in which these ways of living are found, are you essential to the plan of God. Actually, each one of the seven dispensations given in the Scriptures, had a different way of living and a different gospel to go along with it. However, I will deal with just three at this time because these three are still used today erroneously in one way or another by Christians. 1) The first way of living was under law. For 4300 years, in five dispensations, God guided his people by some law. It was either obey or perish. The last 1700 years of time Israel lived under Moses law. Living by the laws of God to be saved ended when Christ died on the cross. Yet, erroneously, at least 90% of believers in Christianity practice some part of gods passed laws as a means of salvation. 2) another way of living for God is found when Jesus of Nazareth comes practicing Moses law in attempting to set up His kingdom on earth. This way of living carries through the book of acts ( have you ever wondered why He killed Ananias and Saphira in the book of Acts, he was still dealing with Israel under the law) until the gospel goes to the Gentiles, Acts 28:28. The Gospel goes to the Gentiles because the father sees it Israel as she was then could never be what he wanted her to be. Jesus of Nazareth had done everything he possibly could to get the nation of Israel to except her Messiah. She rebelled, but throughout the book of acts God kept working to bring Israel to except her Messiah and kept offering the kingdom of God on earth to them. He did this by using signs wonders and miracles but Israel still did not believe. During this time, there was a new way of living centered in the signs, wonders and miracles of the early church. Everybody living been enjoyed that very special way of living. Many of the early Christians participated in God's blessing for Israel but even as great as this was it still short of the wonders of grace which do not mix with the law. Yet, at least 90% of Christians, even today erroneously, practice parts, if not the whole, of the kingdom message that belongs to Israel in the hope that they will get greater blessings in some miracle. 3) The third and final way of living is in the sphere of grace. Grace is a new and Daring program of God where he can totally rely upon the finished work of Christ at Calvary. Grace is not a combination of law and the kingdom message: Grace stands alone as a new and special way of living created just for those that the father has rebirthed himself, Second Corinthians 5:17. Yet, at least 90% of Christianity forfeits living Galatians 2:20 by attempting to get the blessings of Israel or attempting to have a part of Israel's kingdom on earth. Like Jack in the beanstalk story, modern believers continue to trade the goose that lays the golden eggs for a handful of beans.
