Join us as we address the important topics concerning the layout, applications and instructions in the Bible. During our time, we stress the importance of rightly dividing scripture (2Tim2:15) in order to preach the gospel of Christ (Rom1:16; 2Tim1:9-10), the preaching of the glorious mystery of the cross (1Cor1:17-18; 2:6-8; Gal6:14), affording salvation sent to all men freely by God’s grace (Rom3:21-26; 1Tim2:4-6) in this dispensation of God’s grace (Eph3:1-9; Rom16:25-26; Col1:25-26), clearly.
In this session we carry the thrust of Peter’s God-given ministry and gospel of the Circumcision (Acts 3:19-25; Gal2:7) and Paul’s God-given ministry and gospel of the Uncircumcision (Gal2:7) up to the “Jerusalem Council” of Acts 15.
Pay close attention to the fact that the gospel “of the Circumcision” and the gospel “of the Uncircumcision” are entirely different, and, once Peter, James and John learned that Paul had a special revelation and apostleship from the Lord Jesus Christ, they yielded and confined their ministry (Rom16:25; Galatians 2:7-9).
The gospel of Christ (Rom1:16) is not the gospel of the kingdom, or the circumcision (1Cor15:1-4; Cf. Lu9:1-6; 18:31-34; Gal2:7). It was given distinctly to Paul as a dispensation of the gospel (1Cor9:17), concerning the mystery of the gospel of the cross (1Cor2:6-8; Eph6:19), kept secret since the world began.
If you are saved by God’s grace through the blood of Christ, apart from Israel, their laws and covenants (Eph2:11-15), it is because Israel fell and Christ revealed the mystery of his body to Paul with salvation sent to all men without distinction (Rom11:11, 25-32; Eph3:1-12; Ac26:15-18; 28:28; Rom3:19-26; 5:21). Amen, Amen!
