    I am going to show that there are false brethren and that these false
    brethren, as well as false prophets and teachers will deceive many. Which
    included the Apostle Peter in Galatians chapter two. What we will need is
    scriptural build up, which means , information that this is true according
    to the scriptures.

    Matthew 24:4 - "And Jesus answered and said unto them , Take heed that no
    man deceive you"

    Matthew 24:5 - "For many shall come in my name, saying , I am Christ ; and
    shall deceive many"

    Matthew 24:11 - "And many false prophets shall rise, and deceive many"

    Matthew 24:24 - "For there shall arise false Christ's and false prophets,
    and shall shew great signs and wonders ; insomuch that, if it were possible
    , they shall deceive the "very elect"

    Luke 21:8 - " And he said , Take heed that ye be not deceived : for many
    shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ ; and the time draweth near : go
    ye not therefore after them"

    I Corinth. 6:9 - "Be ye not deceived"
    I Corinth. 15:33 - "Be ye not deceived"

    Galatians 6:7 - "Be not deceived ; God is not mocked : for whatsoever a man
    soweth, that shall he also reap"
    Galatians 6:8 - "For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap
    corruption ; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life
    Galatians 6:9 - "And let us not be weary in well doing : for in due season
    we shall reap, "if we faint not"

    I John 1:8 - "If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves , and the
    truth is not in us"
    I John 1:9 - "If we confess our sins , he is faithful and just to forgive us
    our sins , and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness"
    I John 1:10 - "If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar , and
    his word is not in us"

    II Timothy 3:13 - "But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse ,
    deceiving , and being deceived"


    II Corinthians 11:26 - "In journeyings often , in perils of waters , in
    perils of robbers , in perils by mine own countrymen , in perils by the
    heathen , in perils in the city , in perils in the wilderness , in perils in
    the sea, in perils among false brethren"

    Galatians 2:4 - "And that because of "false brethren" unawares brought in,
    who came in privily to spy out our liberty which we have in Christ Jesus ,
    that they might bring us into bondage"

    UNAWARES - hidden liars - concealed

    Hebrews 13:2 - "Be not forgetful to entertain strangers ; for thereby "some"
    have entertained angels unawares" = Spiritual influence from the adversary
    and / or devil spirits.

    Galatians 2:6 - "But of these who seemed to be somewhat ( whatsoever they
    were, it maketh no matter to me : God accepteth no man's person :) for they
    who seemed to be somewhat in conference added nothing to me"

    Galatians 2:7 - "But contrariwise , when they saw that the gospel of the
    uncircumcision was committed unto me, as the gospel of the circumcision was
    unto Peter: "

    Galatians 2:9 - "And when James , Cephas , and John , who "seemed" ( outward
    appearance) to be pillars , perceived the grace that was given unto me, they
    gave to me and Barabas the right hands of fellowship ; that we should go
    unto the heathen ( this was their words - and it means by the word
    "heathen" - to go unto a people that is "no people", or "Nations" other than
    Jewish. The Greek word is "ethnos" - which is also translated "people" in
    these two verses - Acts 8:9 and Romans 10:19. In Acts 8:9 it states -
    "bewitched the people of Samaria" - which means that they deceived them.
    An example of this is in Galatians 3:1 - "O foolish Galatians , who hat
    bewitched you, that ye should not obey the truth , before whose eyes Jesus
    Christ hath been evidently set forth , crucified among you ? " Lets read
    verse 3 also, because it shows Paul's reproof about "changing" their walk.
    Verse 3 - "Are ye so foolish ? having begun in the Spirit , are ye now made
    perfect by the flesh? " Lets look at Romans 10:19 now - "But I say , Did
    not Israel know ? First Moses saith , I will provoke you to jealousy by them
    that are "no people", and by a foolish nation I will anger you " -- Both
    words "people" and "nation" are this Greek word "ethnos" )
    These Jews in Galatians were false brethren unaware - hidden
    liars. Implants by the deceiver - the adversary - angels unaware. These
    false brethren were Jews who "were" provoked to jealousy , to the point that
    they sided with angels unaware, and were nothing more than hidden liars
    working for the adversary.
    Peter fell for their lies, and was asking Gentiles to get
    circumcised as the Jews do. That is when Paul , knowing that Peter was to
    blame > Galatians 2:11 - "But when Peter was come to Antioch , I withstood
    him to the face , because he was to be blamed". Peter was to be blamed for
    believing the lies of these false brethren. In fact after this was all
    over, as far as this confrontation in Galatians chapter two, even Barnabas
    was carried away with their "dissimulation" > Galatians 2:13. The word
    "dissimulation" means Hypocrisy. Hypocrisy means - "deceiving lies" . A
    "hypocrite" is a profane person, one who "Blasphemeth", and in this case in
    Galatians , these false brethren unawares , were hypocrites, who blasphemed
    the Holy Spirit, which is an unforgivable sin against God ! Yet , they
    deceived Peter and many others including Barnabas by their deceiving lies !

    Galatians 2:4
    And that because of false brethren unawares brought in, who came in privily to spy out our liberty which we have in Christ Jesus, that they might bring us into bondage:

    This one passage in Galations just about says it all. Whoever wants to try ands take away the freedom and liberty we have in Christ is a deceiver. Who the Son sets free is free indeed. Thanks, JohnR7

    >>And whoever sins is a slave to sin....

    In order to continue to sin, a Christian has to trample the precious blood of Jesus underfoot. His Blood was given to cleanse us of ALL sin. But freedom goes beyond that. We can be free from oppression, depression, repression, fear and so on. The Bible says that many are the afflictions of the Righteous, but God delivers us out of them all. So when ANY affliction comes my way, I know right away that God is going to deliver me from it, it's only a question of when. Usually sooner than later from my experance. Thanks, JohnR7
