2nd Samuel 24 https://ccoutreach87.com/2018/12/18/2nd-samuel-24/ [Note- I mentioned this video/post on the Sunday sermon video- I figured during the week as I work on the posts- I would make a note to add this video to this post- but sometimes I forget to make ‘the note’- or just don’t have the time to search my sites- but as I was doing the regular posting during the week- this post was next in line as I posted the 2nd Samuel study- so I simply linked it now-
We can’t ‘do’ everything or remember everything that needs to get done- but as you progress in the mission- things fall into place. I have many gifted friends on the streets- they are talented in music- art- in many things.
At times I have told them ‘just do it- just start the journey- don’t wait for the perfect environment’ –
Ok- I am not sure as of now if I will have time to write a ‘new’ section before I post on Sunday- if not- this will be the ‘NEW’ section-
As you can see I didn’t get a chance this week to write a ‘new’ section- but I added my past teachings below- and even in the bullet points you can get a flavor of the theme.
I did manage to upload most of my teaching videos to 1 Drive- and all of the videos I have ever made are on my 1st Youtube site.
As the short note above say’s ‘Just do it’- I have had to learn all the tricks of doing web sites- starting new cloud sites- etc.
Trust me- I came late to the game- I didn’t even have an ‘email’ until a few years ago.
And yes- like many in my generation- we often don’t want to put up with the frustration of learning new things.
I have commented on the media- the social media world- and in our day we think ‘social media’ is mainly Facebook and Twitter.
We have seen people get banned from one of the more notable sites- and they think it’s the ‘end of the world’.
It’s important to understand that social media- or having an ‘on- line’ outreach is not limited to a few of the more notable names.
All the websites you see me on- they are free- I used to pay for Word-Press- but had to drop down to the free plan [Yes- I mad my ‘wars’ with them too- I do pay 7 a month for Medium as well]
I encourage you to look at the links on my sites- go to the site- and there is usually a link that asks you if you too want to start a site.
You can use the video cloud sites the same way- I only pay for 2 plans right now, and to be honest- the plans are very cheap.
I get 1 TB of storage for 7 dollars a month [1 Drive].
Why do I have so many sites- both video and text [web based] ?
Because it is foolish to simply learn and use 1 or 2 famous name brands- in the atmosphere we are in today.
If your using the internet to reach out- and some day your site gets removed- which has happened to many people this last year-
If you have multiple streams going out already-
Then you simply continue the regular routine of posting- and skip that site- no big deal- the others are already up and running.
So- I guess this turned into a ‘new’ section after all.
I encourage all of you to do this- to teach- post- write- make videos- the on line world and much of social media is actually a vast waste land.
Most of the stuff you see/hear has no real learning value.
We as believers have Good News to share- even the simple posting of scripture- has a positive impact.
I encourage all of you to be active in the work of God.
Ok- that’s it for now-
God bless all of you-

NOTE- At the end of the video I mentioned a few things- but didn’t have time to ‘tell it all’- on an upcoming video titled ‘Huey’s bow’- I tell it ‘all’.
I just want to hit on a new theme Paul introduces in this chapter.
He uses the story of Abraham’s 2 sons- from 2 women- and says ‘this is an allegory’-
Galatians 4:22 For it is written, that Abraham had two sons, the one by a bondmaid, the other by a freewoman
Galatians 4:23 But he who was of the bondwoman was born after the flesh; but he of the freewoman was by promise.
Galatians 4:24 Which things are an allegory:
Paul sees the message of grace versus law- contained in the 2 kids- and their mothers.
As I have been teaching in this series- God promised a son to Abraham- and over time Abraham and Sarah agreed that he would have a child with the ‘slave’ woman- Hagar.
Genesis 16:1 Now Sarai Abram’s wife bare him no children: and she had an handmaid, an Egyptian, whose name was Hagar.
Genesis 16:2 And Sarai said unto Abram, Behold now, the LORD hath restrained me from bearing: I pray thee, go in unto my maid; it may be that I may obtain children by her. And Abram hearkened to the voice of Sarai.
Sarah and Abraham were getting old- the promise seemed to be taking too much time- so- Abraham had Ishmael with Hagar.
Genesis 16:15 And Hagar bare Abram a son: and Abram called his son’s name, which Hagar bare, Ishmael.
But- about 12 years later- God told Abraham that Sarah would have a son- the promised one-
Genesis 17:15 And God said unto Abraham, As for Sarai thy wife, thou shalt not call her name Sarai, but Sarah shall her name be.
Genesis 17:16 And I will bless her, and give thee a son also of her: yea, I will bless her, and she shall be a mother of nations; kings of people shall be of her.
Genesis 17:17 Then Abraham fell upon his face, and laughed, and said in his heart, Shall a child be born unto him that is an hundred years old? and shall Sarah, that is ninety years old, bear?
She indeed gets pregnant- and has Isaac.
Ok- in Genesis 21 we read how Ishmael made fun of Isaac- and Isaac’s mom told Abraham to ‘cast out the bondwoman and her child’-
Genesis 21:8 And the child grew, and was weaned: and Abraham made a great feast the same day that Isaac was weaned.
Genesis 21:9 And Sarah saw the son of Hagar the Egyptian, which she had born unto Abraham, mocking.
Genesis 21:10 Wherefore she said unto Abraham, Cast out this bondwoman and her son: for the son of this bondwoman shall not be heir with my son, even with Isaac.
So Abraham sends Ishmael away with his mother Hagar.
Now Paul says this is a symbol of the sons born after the promise- Spirit-
And the sons who are ‘sons of the law’.
Galatians 4:24 Which things are an allegory: for these are the two covenants; the one from the mount Sinai, which gendereth to bondage, which is Agar.
Galatians 4:25 For this Agar is mount Sinai in Arabia, and answereth to Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with her children.
Galatians 4:26 But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all.
Those under the law- the circumcision- they will always persecute the sons of the promise-
Galatians 4:28 Now we, brethren, as Isaac was, are the children of promise.
Galatians 4:29 But as then he that was born after the flesh persecuted him that was born after the Spirit, even so it is now.
That was what was indeed happening with the Galatians-
The Judiazers [those who kept the circumcision] – and ‘tried’ to keep the law- they were persecuting the Gentile believers- who were born of God.
Justified by faith.
And they were like Ishmael was- mocking the simple message of grace.
Paul says these 2 sons- and their moms- represent the 2 covenants- one from Sinai [law] and the covenant of grace- the ‘New Jerusalem’.
The community of God [the church].
I always found this example interesting- because Paul sees so much in this simple story.
Yet- these were things God showed him.
Paul urges the Galatians to separate from the influence of the Judiazers-
He says we are ‘sons of the free woman’ and they are children of the ‘bondwoman’-
Galatians 4:30 Nevertheless what saith the scripture? Cast out the bondwoman and her son: for the son of the bondwoman shall not be heir with the son of the freewoman.
If they go back under the law-
That will indeed lead to bondage- and we are not children of the ‘bondwoman’ but of ‘the free’-
Galatians 4:31 So then, brethren, we are not children of the bondwoman, but of the free. [Some sites see here https://corpuschristioutreachministries.blogspot.com/2023/05/sunday-sermon-text.html?m=0
