“Now to him that is of power to stablish you according to my gospel, and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery, which was kept secret since the world began,”
“For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified.”
How many ways can Jesus be preached?
-According to Prophecy (Shadow of things to come)
2.) Multiple Gospels taken from the 4 Gospels
-The Healer (Jesus in a bottle…)
-The Gospel of the Kingdom (Repent and be baptized for the remission of sins )
-Sell Everything (sacraficial poverty= righteousness; Radical by: David Platt; Amish; some branches of Pentecostalism— Pentecostal pattern from Acts 2 and 3)
3.) Something kept secret, but now revealed…
-Prior to the Apostle Paul’s salvation and calling, there was a “missing puzzle piece” to God’s plan. Ephesians 3:1-10
– Paul was the first man to be saved the same way you and I are saved today. 1 Timothy 1:16
– Jesus revealed, to the Apostle Paul and committed unto him, the mystery that had been kept secret, since the world began. 1 Corinthians 9:17
-Free salvation, by grace, through faith, had never before been spoken. Ephesians 2:8-12
-Gentiles saved, Israel postponed, heavenly places discussed, forgiveness and atonement given already, and the cross and resurrection are all subjects never known or taught before the revealing of the mystery to the Apostle Paul.
