Circumcision without hands
Putting off the body of the sins of the flesh

   Abraham is called the father of faith (God's persuasion). God quickened Abraham to walk in steps of faith (God's persuasion), 400 years before Moses Law.

Rom 4:3 For what saith the scripture? And Abraham believed God, and it was reckoned unto him for righteousness.

Rom 4:7 How was it then reckoned?

*Rom 4:12 In the steps (
unmeritorious righteousness, right acts ) of faith (God's persuasion), which [he had] being [yet] uncircumcised. :

    Then many years later Abraham received a circumcision by hands with a knife the removal of a part of his flesh, as a seal, sign, witness his sins were already removed in his previous circumcision without hands, in his steps of faith (persusuasion).
    Moses law to circumcise, was only a sign, seal, witnessing with hands, written with a knife the removal of a part of flesh of 8 day old boys (not having faith), a sign of possible future removal of sins (for Israelites), forgiveness of sins. If when grown they walked in steps of faith, as abraham walked in steps of faith, which removed his sins, forgiven, was reckoned unto him for righteousness, when as Abraham was yet uncircumcised.
  God's spirit (word of Christ) quicken us in the step of baptism (water) in Christ body through faith (God's persuasion). God removes the sins from us, by seeing us united in his son's, Christ body in the water, buried, DEAD, CRUCIFIED (blood shed), the punishment of sin is removed from our body through Christ body. God sees us though baptism, as placed on the cross in Jesus' body, crucified, justified from sin.

Col 2:10-14 And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power: In whom also ye are circumcised (sins removed) with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ. Buried with him in baptism (water), and your risen with him through faith (persuasion) by the working of God (grace) who has raised him from the dead. And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses; Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross.

Forgiven you all trespasses
