Gal 1:1-5
Paul, a missionary, not from men nor from a man, but from Jesus Christ and God Father Who raised Him from the dead, and all the brothers with me. To the churches of Galatia, grace to you and peace from our God Father and Lord Jesus Christ Who gave Himself to put us back on the straight path, to deliver us from the present evil age by the will of our God and Father, in Whom the transformation for ever and ever. Αμήν.

Gal 1:6-9
I am amazed at how quickly you are turning away from the One Who calls you in grace, the Christ, and to another message of salvation which is none other than some men upsetting you and wanting to distort the message of salvation of Christ. But if we or a messenger from heaven brings you a message of salvation other than the message of salvation that we brought to you, may he be eternally condemned. As we said before and I now say again, if anyone brings to you a message of salvation other than what you accepted, may he be eternally condemned.

Gal 1:10-17
For am I now seeking favor from men or approval from God? Or am I trying to please men? If I were still trying to please men, then I would not be a servant of Christ. Because I want you to know, brothers, that the message of salvation that I brought is not in the fashion of men, nor did I accept it from men, nor was I taught it; rather it is the revelation of Jesus Christ.
For you heard about my way of life at one time in Judaism, how I zealously pursued the community of the people of God and was destroying it, and was advancing in Judaism more than many peers in my generation, being more zealous for the traditions of my fathers.
But then God, who set me apart from my mother’s womb and called me by His grace, willed to reveal to me His Son, so that I may bring to the nations the message of salvation that is in Christ. And I did not suddenly go to flesh and blood for advice.

Gal 2:16-21
You know that a man is not put right in his relationship with God by complying with the laws of men, but by the energy of salvation in Jesus Christ, and we have had our energy of salvation in Christ Jesus so that we may be put right in our relationship with God by means of the energy of salvation in Christ and not out of compliance with the law, because no one, as a physical organism, is put right in his relationship with God by compliance with the law.

But if, seeking to be put right in our relationship with God in Christ, we make mistakes and go errant ways, does that mean that Christ is the servant of mistakes and errant ways? Of course not. If I build again those things that I destroyed, I prove that I am a law-breaker. For through the law I died to the law that I may live for God. I have been crucified with Christ, so now I no longer live in desolation, instead Christ lives in me; what I now live in the physical body, I live in the energy of salvation of the Son of God Whose creative energy is in me and Who gave Himself over for me. I do not reject God’s grace: if a right relationship with God comes through the law, then Christ died for nothing.

Gal 3:1-6
O foolish Galatians, who has cast the evil eye on you, you before whose very eyes Jesus Christ was publicly proclaimed as crucified? I want to learn just one thing from you: did you receive the Spirit by compliance with the law or by the energy of salvation that you heard about? Are you so foolish as to have started in spirit but now wind up again in the physical body? Did you go through the experience of overcoming concern over the material world and focus as much energy as you can on your souls’ relationship with God in vain? If it was in vain? Does God provide you with the Spirit and work power in you, then, because you comply with the law or because of the energy of salvation that you heard about? Just as Abraham, “He focused his energy of salvation on God and he received back the highest value by putting right his relationship with God.”

Gal 3:7-14
For you know that those who live by the energy of salvation are sons of Abraham. The Scripture foresaw that God provides highest value to the nations that live by the energy of salvation, He expressed the message of salvation in advance to Abraham saying, “All the nations will receive back the highest value through you.”
As a result, those who live by the energy of salvation receive highest value with the energy of salvation of Abraham. For those who live by compliance with the law are under a curse, for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who does not continue to do everything written in the Book of the Law.”
Clearly, then, no one has a right relationship with God through the law because “the one with a right relationship with God will live by the energy of salvation.”
The law, then, does not come through the energy of salvation; on the contrary, “The one who does these things will live by them.”
Christ released us from the curse of the law, becoming for us a curse, for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who is hung on a tree”, so that the highest value in Abraham may come to the nations through Christ Jesus, so that we may receive the promise of the Spirit through the energy of salvation.

Gal 3:15-20
Brothers, as a man I say, likewise no one man renders invalid or adds to a covenant in force. The promises were spoken to Abraham and to his seed. It does not say “and to seeds” as if to many, but as to one, “And to your seed”, which is Christ. So I say, God put the covenant in force beforehand. When the law came four-hundred thirty years later, He did not nullify the promise to render it ineffective. For if the potential by spiritual law to recover one’s portion of the direct energy of God is from the law, then it is no longer from a promise. God freely gave to Abraham through a promise.

What about the law, then? It was added because of transgressions, put into effect through messengers in a mediator’s hand, until the sperm to which the promise referred would come. Now the mediator is not of one, but God is one.

Gal 3:21-29
Is the law against God’s promises, then? Of course not. For if a law capable of giving life had been given, then the right relationship with God would be from a law. But the Scripture confines everyone under sin, such that the promise is from the energy of salvation in Jesus Christ given to those who bring to bear the energy of salvation.

Before the energy of salvation came, we were held prisoner by law, confined until the potential energy of salvation was revealed. So the law our guide came into being leading towards Christ, so that we may put right our relationship with God through the energy of salvation; but once the energy of salvation comes, we are no longer under a guide, for you are all sons of God through the energy of salvation in Christ Jesus. For whoever is baptized in Christ bears Christ. There is no Jew or Greek, there is no slave or free, there is no male or female; for you are all in Christ Jesus. If you are of Christ, then, therefore you are a sperm of Abraham, persons who have the potential by spiritual law to recover your portions of the direct energy of God according to a promise.

Gal 4:1-7
I say, then, for as many years as an heir, someone with potential by spiritual law to recover his portion of the direct energy of God, is immature, he is no different than a slave; though he owns everything, he is under supervisors and administrators until the time set by his father. Likewise we too, when we were immature, we were enslaved under the basic elements of this world. But when the age of maturity came, God sent his Son, born of a woman, born under law, so that He might set free those under law, so that we might recover our direct relationship with God, our true place as sons. Because you are sons, then, God sent His Son’s Spirit into our hearts, the Spirit who calls out Abba, O Father. Thus you are no longer a slave, but a son. If a son, then also an heir by God, a person who has the potential by spiritual law to recover his portion of the direct energy of God.

Gal 5:1-6
Christ set us free for freedom. Stand firm, then, and never again let yourselves be caught up in a yoke of slavery. Look, I Paul tell you that if you insist on circumcision by human hands, then Christ will be of no value to you. I again testify to every human being who has been circumcised by human hands that he is under obligation to comply with the law in its entirety. Those of you who put right your relationship with God through law rendered ineffective Christ. You fell from grace. For we eagerly await the potential of putting right our relationship with God in Spirit by the energy of salvation. For in Christ neither circumcision by human hands nor non-circumcision has any force, rather an energy of salvation working through creative energy.

Gal 5:13-15
Fut you, brothers, were called to freedom; not freedom to indulge in the physical body, rather work for each other by means of the creative energy. For the entire law is fulfilled in one expression, “Love your neighbor as yourself”. If you instead bite and devour one another, watch out that you do not destroy each other.

Gal 5:16-25
But, I say, move in Spirit, lest you come to an end in a spasm of flesh. For the impulses of the physical body move in contradiction to the Spirit, and the Spirit in contradiction to the physical body. For they are opposed to each other, so that you do not do what you want. But if you conduct yourselves by Spirit, you are not under law. Otherwise the works of the physical body are clear, they are hostile energy, impurity, indecency, idolatry, sorcery, hatred, infighting, jealousy, anger, selfishness, division, false teaching, envy, murder, drunkenness, carousing and the like. These things I told you before, and like I told you before, those who practice such things will destroy their potential by spiritual law to recover their portion of the direct energy of God and enter into His reign.
The fruit of the Spirit, on the other hand, is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faith, gentleness, discipline; against these things there is no law. And those who are of Christ crucify the physical body with its desires and impulses. If we live by the Spirit, let us move by the Spirit.

Gal 6:7-10
Do not fool yourselves, God is not mocked. For whatever a man sows, that he will reap. He who sows in his own physical body will reap decay in the physical body, but he who sows in the Spirit will reap eternal life in the Spirit. Therefore, let us not become rotten while doing good; maintaining our integrity, we will reap at the proper time. Therefore, while we have time, let us work the good for the sake of everyone, and even more so for our fellow workers in the energy of salvation.

Gal 6:11-18
Those who want to put on a good face in the physical body are forcing you to be circumcised only as a smoke screen to avoid pursuing the Cross of the Christ. For those who are circumcised do not even keep the law themselves; yet they want you to be circumcised, but so that they may boast about your physical bodies.
May I never boast except in the Cross of our Lord Jesus Christ through which the world has been crucified to me and I too the world. For neither circumcision nor non-circumcision is worth anything, but what has value is the new creation. And those who will live by this rule, peace and mercy to them and to God’s Israel.

Finally, no one may cause me distress because my eternal body bears the marks of the circumcision of Christ.

May grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your Spirit, brothers. Αμήν.

Eph 1:1-2
Paul, missionary of Christ Jesus by the will of God, to those in Ephesos set apart to do the work of God and in the energy of salvation in Christ Jesus. Grace and peace to you from God our Father and of Lord Jesus Christ.

Eph 1:3-14
God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ is the highest value. He provides for us in endless spiritual giving in the heavens in Christ, just as He chose us in Him before structuring the world, setting us apart to do His work and transparent before Him in creative energy. He designated us beforehand to be members of His community of eternal souls through Jesus Christ, by His good will, for expression of the gift of transformation’s highest value which He gave to us as an expression of His creative energy, love, through Christ Jesus.
We are caught up in the whirlwind of His creation, but we gain release in Christ through His blood, setting us back on the straight path through the richness of His grace which overflows in us, in all wisdom and insight, disclosing to us the mystery of His will in accordance with His desire which He designed in Christ as we enter into fulfillment of His spiritual laws at the proper time, to bring everything in heaven and on earth in Christ, the head of the community of eternal souls, the Christ in whom we have obtained an inheritance, the potential by spiritual law to recover our portion of the direct energy of God, designed beforehand according to plan to work everything in conformity with the purpose of His will so that we, whose first potential is in Christ, may be worthy of His transformation.
You too, then, are in Christ, having heard the word of truth, the good news of your salvation, the Christ in whom, having the energy of salvation, you are sealed in the Holy Spirit of the promise, the Holy Spirit who is a pledge of our potential by spiritual law to recover our portion of the direct energy of God until release from the captive condition into worthiness of His transformation.

Eph 1:15-23
For this reason, when I heard about the energy of salvation within you in the Lord Jesus and the creative energy which is in all those set out to do the work of God, I have not stopped thanking God for you, remembering you in my prayers so that the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of the transformation, may give you spirit of wisdom and of revelation in consciousness of Him, having enlightened the eyes of your heart so that you may see what is the potential of His calling, what is the wealth of the transformation of His potential by spiritual law to recover your portion of the direct energy of God for those set apart to do His work, and what is the overflowing greatness of His power in you who have the energy of salvation mirrored in His intense power.
He worked this power in the Christ, raising him from the dead and seating Him at His right hand in the heavens far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and any name that can be uttered, not only in this age but in all ages to come. And God placed everything under His control beneath his feet and appointed Him head over all, for the church, which is His σώμα, the community of eternal souls, the overwhelmingly radiant expression of His fullness in everything in every way, joying!

Eph 2:1-3
For you were dead in your errant ways, without direction under the rules of this world, under the pimp of hostile energy, the energy of short-sightedness working in the sons of disobedience. All of us swayed like puppets under them at one time, pulled by the impulses of our physical bodies, twisted by the whims of the physical body and thoughts. Like listless fools, we were caught up in the whirlwind of hostile energy.

Eph 2:4-10
And so we died in our errant ways. But God is deeply compassionate and considers us an emanation of His creative energy. Therefore, He brought us back to life with the Christ – by grace you are saved – and rose us up and seated us in the heavens together with Christ Jesus, so that He may show in the coming ages the fathomless depth of His grace in kindness for us in Christ Jesus, for by grace you are saved through faith, the energy of salvation. And it does not come from you, it is God’s gift. It is not from deeds, lest no one boast. For we are His creations, founded in Christ Jesus for good works that God prepared beforehand, so that we may walk in them.

Eph 2:11-22
Therefore, remember that at one time you were outcasts in your physical bodies, called uncircumcised by those circumcised (in the physical body by human hands), because at that time you were without Christ, alienated from the citizenship of Israel and foreign to the covenants of the promise, having no hope and without God in the world. But now, in Christ Jesus, you who were once far have become near through the blood of Christ.
For He is our peace, He who made the two one, who brought down the dividing wall, the hostile energy in His physical body, who nullified the law with its commandments and regulations, so that in Himself He might create the two into one new human being, making peace, and so that He may reconcile the both into one community of eternal souls in God through the Cross, killing the enemy in Himself.

He came and proclaimed peace to those of you who are far and those we are near, because through Him we both have access in one Spirit to the Father. As a result, then, you are no longer foreigners and exiles, but fellow citizens of those set apart to do God’s work and members of God’s household, built up in the foundation of the apostles and prophets whose cornerstone is Christ Jesus in Whom the entire building, joined together, grows into God’s house of master works, in Whom you too are built together in God’s dwelling place in spirit.

Eph 4:1-16
As a member of the master’s household, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling that you have received in all humility and gentleness, bearing with one another in love, working hard to maintain the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace; one σώμα, and one Spirit, just as you were called to the utmost potential in your calling; one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all Who is over all, through all, and in all.
But to each one of us grace has been given as Christ has apportioned it. That is why it says, “when ascending on high, He led captives in His train, and gave life to men.”
But “He ascended” also means that He went down to the lower regions of the earth. The One going down is also the One Who ascended higher than all of the heavens, in order to fulfill everything. And He apportioned apostles on the one hand, prophets on the other, evangelists, but also pastors and teachers, for the training of those set apart for the work of God to do the work of service, the building of the Christ’s σώμα, until we all meet in the unity of the energy of salvation and of the consciousness of the Son of God, at the point of full maturity, at a measure of age that attains the fullness of Christ, no longer immature, tossed about by the sea and blown around by any wind of teaching in the scheming of men, in trickery which is the hallmark of deceit.
Instead, bearing witness to the truth, bringing to bear our energy of salvation in creative energy, we may cause everything to grow in Him Who is the head, Christ, out of Whom the entire σώμα is joined together to form a united coherent entity through all the supporting connections according to the measure of energy of each individual member, causing the σώμα to grow for its own edification in creative energy.

Eph 6:23-24
Peace to the brothers and creative energy with the energy of salvation from God Father and Lord Jesus Christ. Grace be with all of us who love the Lord Jesus Christ with undying love.
