The Time When "The Faith" Came (Galatians 3:22-25)Pastor Dennis, August 6, 2017
Part of the Immanuel Baptist Church series, preached at a Sunday Evening service
The Apostle Paul is writing to Galatian Christians who were deceived and following false teachers. in this sermon, God's redemptive plan in history is explained. God's covenant with Abraham was followed by His covenant with Moses which was a harsh disciplinarian designed to drive sinners of that time in history to seek justification from God's promise and not by law keeping. The coming of Christ ended the Law Covenant and introduced the New Covenant. In Redemptive history, believers went from little children who needed a schoolmaster to mature "sons" under the New Covenant.

22But the scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe. 23But before faith came, we were kept under the law, shut up unto the faith which should afterwards be revealed. 24Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith. 25But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster. (KJV)
