A New Creature
Galatians 6:15–16 (KJV)
For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision, but a new creature.
And as many as walk according to this rule, peace be on them, and mercy, and upon the Israel of God.
The rule of which the Word speaks is that of verse fifteen, that the matter that matters is the new creature, we are no more Jews or Gentiles. We are new creatures, made up of both Jews and Gentiles and we are intended to be members together in a local congregation, a church.
To as many as walk according to this rule:
Peace be on them
Peace with God and with one another. In the world, we will experience tribulation. Despite that, we do have peace with God, and we may have peace with our fellow believers.
We have mercy with God. We need mercy one with another. It is the prerequisite of peace among ourselves.
And upon the Israel of God
Either this speaks of those who are new creatures, Jews and Gentiles who are Abraham’s seed by faith and have the circumcision of the heart, or else this speaks of the future Israel who, having endured the Tribulation, turn to Jesus Christ.
