  1. Mark 4:11 And he said unto them, Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, all these things are done in parables: A mystery is something that is hidden. Jesus was speaking to his twelve disciples saying it was unto them that the meaning of the parables would be given. The parables concerned the kingdom of God. The kingdom of God consists of a heavenly kingdom and an earthly kingdom (Ephesians 1:10). Jesus spoke in parables of the earthly kingdom; the prophetic Davidic kingdom on earth promised believing Israel (Revelation 5:10 Luke 1:32). Romans 16:25 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, 16:26 But now is made manifest, and by the scriptures of the prophets, according to the commandment of the everlasting God, made known to all nations for the obedience of faith: Paul spoke of a mystery as well, however, the mystery he spoke of is not the same mystery of the kingdom spoken of in the parables; In fact, Paul spoke of more than one mystery. Some of the mysteries Paul revealed are: 1) The gospel that Christ died for our sins, was buried, and rose again (1 Corinthians 15: 1-4). 2) The church, the body of Christ (1 Corinthians 12:27). 3) The Gentiles are in the body (Ephesians 3:6). Ephesians 3:3 How that by revelation he made known unto me the mystery; (as I wrote afore in few words, 3:4 Whereby, when ye read, ye may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ) The revelations of the mystery was given to Paul by Jesus Christ (Galatians 1:12). Ephesians 3:9 And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ: 3:10 To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God, Paul wanted all to see the fellowship between Jew and Gentile which is found in Christ by the church, wherein both are made one new man (Ephesians 2:15), a new creature (2 Corinthians 5:17).  
  2. John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. This is a glorious verse. From this verse we can learn the love of God. We can learn that it is Christ Jesus who saves us unto eternal life. We can learn that our trust and faith is placed in Jesus. This verse however, does not convey the cross. John 20:31 But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name. 1 John 5:13 These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God. Peter and the apostles preached faith in the name of Jesus for the remission of sins and eternal life (Luke 24:47 Acts 10:43). Matthew 16:15 He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am? 16:16 And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God. Israel had to believe that Jesus was the Christ, the Son of God for eternal life. Matthew 26:28 For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins. Jesus told his disciples that he must be killed and that he would rise again (Matthew 16:21). Jesus told them that he would shed his blood for the new testament. The new testament was made with Israel (Jeremiah 31:31). Hebrews 9:15 And for this cause he is the mediator of the new testament, that by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions that were under the first testament, they which are called might receive the promise of eternal inheritance. Jesus suffered the death of the cross to redeem Israel from the sins they committed under the old testament. Peter preached the cross to fulfill the new testament. The death of the testator was necessary to put in force the new testament (Hebrews 9:17). Paul preached that by the cross, salvation unto eternal life was provided freely to all by the sacrifice of Christ (Romans 3:22-24). Paul preached that Jesus died for our sins. Paul preached the gospel Jesus revealed to him and which we are to believe: 1 Corinthians 15:1 Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; 15:3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; 15:4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures: John 3:16 and the preaching of all twelve apostles is the foundation of Paul's gospel and our salvation: Ephesians 2:20 And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone; Psalm 33:21 For our heart shall rejoice in him, because we have trusted in his holy name. We also have trusted in the name of Jesus.
  3. Romans 1:1 Paul, a servant of Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle, separated unto the gospel of God, 1:2 (Which he had promised afore by his prophets in the holy scriptures,) 1:3 Concerning his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, which was made of the seed of David according to the flesh; 1:4 And declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead: 1:5 By whom we have received grace and apostleship, for obedience to the faith among all nations, for his name: Paul preached the gospel of God. Paul was called to be the apostle to the Gentiles (1 Timothy 2:7). The gospel of God is the progressive revelation found in the scriptures that reveal salvation. The gospel of God starts in Genesis 3:15. The gospel of God reveals that Jesus, according to the flesh, is of the seed of David and that the resurrection declares him to be the Son of God. The gospel of God reveals the obedience to the faith for the name of Jesus. 1 Peter 4:17 For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God? Peter also preached the gospel of God. John 1:11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not. 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: John 8:24 I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins. Israel was to believe on the name of Jesus for eternal life; they were to believe that Jesus was the Christ, the Son of God (John 20:31 1 John 3:23). Israel did not receive Jesus; Israel, outside of a small believing remnant, did not receive him as their King, the Messiah, the Son of God (Romans 9:27). Acts 2:24 Whom God hath raised up, having loosed the pains of death: because it was not possible that he should be holden of it. Peter was preaching Jesus as the Son of God by his resurrection according to the gospel of God. Acts 2:30 Therefore being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him, that of the fruit of his loins, according to the flesh, he would raise up Christ to sit on his throne; Peter was preaching that David spoke of Jesus as being of his seed and spoke of the resurrection of Jesus according to the gospel of God. Acts 10:43 To him give all the prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins. Peter is preaching the remission of sins through the name of Jesus according to the gospel of God. Acts 9:20 And straightway he preached Christ in the synagogues, that he is the Son of God. After the conversion of Paul, he went to the synagogues and preached Jesus is the Son of God according to the gospel of God (Acts 9:20). The first passage in the epistle of Romans is likewise the gospel of God. Acts 13:33 God hath fulfilled the same unto us their children, in that he hath raised up Jesus again; as it is also written in the second psalm, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee. Paul is preaching that Jesus by his resurrection is the Son of God according to the gospel of God. Acts 17:3 Opening and alleging, that Christ must needs have suffered, and risen again from the dead; and that this Jesus, whom I preach unto you, is Christ. Paul is preaching the resurrection according to the gospel of God. Paul is preaching that Jesus is Christ, which Israel did not receive. Romans 16:25 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, Paul preached his gospel, which was revealed only to Paul by Jesus Christ (Galatians 1:12). Paul preached Jesus, not only by the gospel of God, but by the mystery. The mystery was not found in the scriptures. The mystery was not revealed to Peter nor did Peter preach it. Romans 16:26 But now is made manifest, and by the scriptures of the prophets, according to the commandment of the everlasting God, made known to all nations for the obedience of faith: Paul preached Jesus Christ by the mystery now made manifest (Romans 16:25); Paul also preached Jesus Christ by the scriptures (Romans 16:26). Romans 16:27 To God only wise, be glory through Jesus Christ for ever. Amen. Paul preached below the gospel revealed to him by Jesus Christ. 1 Corinthians 15:1 Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; 15:3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; 15:4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures: Jesus's death and resurrection could be found in the scriptures, but that it would provide atonement and justification freely to all who believed was not (Romans 3:24). Romans 3:21 But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets; The law and the prophets revealed the righteousness of God apart from the law (Jeremiah 23:6 Isaiah 43:25 Habakkuk 2:4). Romans 3:22 Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference: But now is manifest the righteousness of God by faith of Jesus Christ. All that God required for Israel for eternal life was to believe on Jesus as their Messiah, and believe that he is the Son of God. Peter was not given the revelations that Paul received. Peter was not preaching another gospel; Peter was preaching the gospel of God, as was Paul, and that Jesus died for the remission of sins committed by Israel under the first testament (Hebrews 9:15). Peter was preaching Jesus as the mediator of the new testament to Israel. Peter and Paul were both preaching the gospel of God, but were not preaching the same gospel. Revealed to paul was the full revelation of the atoning death on the cross and the justification provided by the resurrection, unto all who will believe. Paul was an able minister of the new testament (2 Corinthians 3:6) but did not preach the new testament for the body of Christ. To understand the mystery, we need to understand the new testament and the idenity of Jesus, by the gospel of God, to comprehend what Jesus accomplished on our behalf by his atoning death and resurrection.            
  4. 1 Corinthians 15:11 Therefore whether it were I or they, so we preach, and so ye believed. There were some saying that there was no resurrection of the dead. Paul is saying that if there is no resurrection then their preaching is in vain. In 1 Corinthians 15 Paul is recounting that the apostles all saw the risen Lord. It is faith in the risen Lord Jesus Christ that is being preached for their salvation unto eternal life. Whether it was Peter and the other apostles or Paul that preached that Christ rose from the dead; those that heard believed. Those that believed had eternal life and were in Christ. Peter and the eleven, along with Paul, did preach the risen Christ. However Peter preached that Christ rose to sit on the throne of David in the prophetic earthly kingdom (Acts 2:30 Revelation 5:10). Paul preached Christ risen for our justification unto eternal life (Romans 4:25). Peter preached Christ crucified and risen to establish the new testament for Israel (Matthew 26:28 Hebrews 9:28). Paul preached that Christ died for the sins of all, rose again and justification is freely given to all who believe (Romans 4:24-25 Romans 3:24). Romans 15:20 Yea, so have I strived to preach the gospel, not where Christ was named, lest I should build upon another man's foundation: Whether it was Peter or the other apostles that preached, those who believed their gospel were in Christ. Paul preached the gospel revealed to him to those who did not believe. Romans 16:7 Salute Andronicus and Junia, my kinsmen, and my fellow-prisoners, who are of note among the apostles, who also were in Christ before me. The saints mentioned by Paul were in Christ before Paul. Galatians 1:13 For ye have heard of my conversation in time past in the Jews' religion, how that beyond measure I persecuted the church of God, and wasted it: Paul persecuted the church before he was saved. Paul did not establish the church. The chuch existed before Paul was saved and was given the mystery of Christ and the church (Ephesians 5:32). Acts 7:38 This is he, that was in the church in the wilderness with the angel which spake to him in the mount Sina, and with our fathers: who received the lively oracles to give unto us: There was in fact, a church before the church persecuted by Paul. Stephen preached the church in the wilderness which was the assembly of Israel. In the assembly were old testament saints, a remnant who believed God (Galatians 3:6 Isaiah 1:9 Romans 9:27). These were in the Lord, and since Jesus is God, were in Christ. Matthew 16:18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. Jesus built his church. Jesus shed his blood and rose again to establish the new testament with Israel (Jeremiah 31:31). Jesus built the new testament church of those who believed on him to eternal life; those who believed on his name; those who believed he is the Christ, the Son of God. Jesus is the rock (Psalm 18:31 1 Corinthians 10:4 Luke 6:48). Jesus built the foundation of the church then and now upon the twelve apostles with Jesus being the chief corner stone (1 Corinthians 3:11 Ephesians 2:20). Acts 2:47 Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved. Those believers were in the new testament church, the church of God. Colossians 1:18 And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence. Paul preached the revelations given him by Jesus (Galatians 1:12). Paul revealed the church today, the body of Christ (1 Corinthians 12:27). Those who believe Paul's gospel are in Christ, but are in the body and have become a new creature, where there is neither Jew or Gentile (2 Corinthians 5:17 Galatians 6:15). Christ is the saviour and head of the body (Ephesians 5:23). Whether an old testament saint, Jew or Gentile; Jew or Gentile who believed Peter's preaching; or Jew or Gentile who believed Paul's preaching; they by faith are all in Christ.        
  5. Isaiah 42:1 Behold my servant, whom I uphold; mine elect, in whom my soul delighteth; I have put my spirit upon him: he shall bring forth judgment to the Gentiles. 1 Peter 2:6 Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded. From the verses above it can be seen that Jesus Christ is the elect. Isaiah 45:4 For Jacob my servant's sake, and Israel mine elect, I have even called thee by thy name: I have surnamed thee, though thou hast not known me. Isaiah 65:22 They shall not build, and another inhabit; they shall not plant, and another eat: for as the days of a tree are the days of my people, and mine elect shall long enjoy the work of their hands. Israel also is called the elect of God. Elect also means chosen. God chose Israel. Through Israel would come salvation to the ends of the world. Mark 13:19 For in those days shall be affliction, such as was not from the beginning of the creation which God created unto this time, neither shall be. 13:20 And except that the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh should be saved: but for the elect's sake, whom he hath chosen, he hath shortened the days. God will shorten the tribulation for the elect's sake, Israel. The body of Christ is also called the elect but could not be in view in Mark 13:20 because it had not yet been revealed to Paul. 2 Timothy 2:10 Therefore I endure all things for the elect's sakes, that they may also obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory. I understand that in 2 Timothy Paul is speaking of the Jews. Paul endures all things that the Jews may also be saved. Paul's desire was to see his brethren, Israel, saved. Colossians 3:12 Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering; The body of Christ is called elect because we have been chosen in Christ by God's election of grace, through faith.  
  6. Hello You said........Then we see that God has those in Israel in a prominent position are in the heavenlies, described `as the stars.` We see them in Heb. 11 where they looked for a city, and they will inherit that in the New Jerusalem. They hold a prominent position in the heavenlies. The new Jerusalem is a city but it is not in the heavens but rather, comes down to earth from heaven. Revelation 21:2 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
  7. Hello I answered that below: They would have entered the Davidic earthly kingdom and inherit the promised land (Luke 12:32 Ezekiel 36:24) . I will add that after their death they will be resurrected at Christ's coming (Revelation 20:6) and will be in the kingdom until the new heavens and earth and the new Jerusalem comes down from heaven (Revelation 21:1-2). Then all things will be gathered together in Christ (Ephesians 1:10).
  8. 1 Peter 3:18 For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit: 3:19 By which also he went and preached unto the spirits in prison; 3:20 Which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water. 3:21 The like figure whereunto even baptism doth also now save us (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God,) by the resurrection of Jesus Christ: The ark is not the "like figure" or picture or type: the water is the "like figure". Water saved Noah and his family and the Jews Peter is speaking to will likewise be saved by baptism. The flood waters put away the flilth of the flesh by destroying the wicked. Baptism will save Israel by the resurrection of Christ. John 20:31 But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name. Acts 8:36 And as they went on their way, they came unto a certain water: and the eunuch said, See, here is water; what doth hinder me to be baptized? 8:37 And Philip said, If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest. And he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. Before the dispensation of the grace of God Jews had to believe on the name of Jesus for salvation unto eternal life. They had to believe Jesus was the Christ, the Son of God. Upon belief they were then baptized. Matthew 28:19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Mark 16:16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. Jesus commanded the twelve disciples to baptize. Jesus said in Mark 16:16 that baptism was part of their salvation. Acts 22:16 And now why tarriest thou? arise, and be baptized, and wash away thy sins, calling on the name of the Lord. Paul after his conversion was baptized to wash away sin. Acts 2:38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. Peter speaking in Acts 2:38 said baptism was for the remission or forgiveness of sins. Peter also said they would receive the Holy Ghost through baptism. Acts 2:30 Therefore being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him, that of the fruit of his loins, according to the flesh, he would raise up Christ to sit on his throne; Jesus was buried and rose again. According to Peter, Christ was raised to sit on the throne of David in the prophetic earthly kingdom (Matthew 8:11 Luke 1:32-33). Zechariah 13:1 In that day there shall be a fountain opened to the house of David and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem for sin and for uncleanness. In the day of the coming of Jesus the waters of the fountain will cleanse Israel of sin. Ezekiel 36:25 Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and ye shall be clean: from all your filthiness, and from all your idols, will I cleanse you. God made the covenants with Israel alone (Romans 9:4). God made the new testament with the house of Israel and the house of Judah only (Jeremiah 31:31). The new testament will cleanse saved Israel with water. Hebrews 9:28 So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation. Jesus came the first time to bear the sins of Israel. The believing remnant of Israel would be looking for his second coming for salvation. For Israel their salvation rested upon the coming of the Lord Jesus. Acts 3:19 Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord. 3:20 And he shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached unto you: 3:21 Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began. The times of refreshing was the coming of Jesus. Jesus being resurrected is in heaven. Jesus was first to be received into heaven and upon Israel's conversion, be sent for their salvation when their sins would be forgiven and blotted out (Jeremiah 31:34). Ezekiel 36:26 A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh. Ezekiel 36:27 And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them. The new testament gives saved Israel a new spirit. God will put his spirit in them and will cause them to keep the commandments of God. God will do for Israel what Israel was never able, or would never be able to do, of itself. The death of Jesus put in force the new covenant (Hebrews 9:17). 1 Peter 3:22 Who is gone into heaven, and is on the right hand of God; angels and authorities and powers being made subject unto him. Peter talks of Jesus, who is gone into heaven, in the verse above. This speaks of his resurrection, which will fulfill the future promise of the spirit to renew Israel by the new covenant. The resurrection of Jesus ensured the fulfilment of the kingdom and the new covenant. Baptism saved Israel by the remission of sins. The salvation spoken of is not unto eternal life; that came by grace and by the faith of Christ, by which they believed on him as the Christ, the Son of God.The remission of sins gave Israel the answer of a good conscience toward God ( 1 Peter 3:21). The water of baptism provided the remission of sins to cleanse Israel to be priests of God in the kingdom (Exodus 40:12-15 Leviticus 8:6 Hebrews 10:22). Israel, by the resurrection of Christ, and the new covenant, would be born again to live unto God in righteousness (1 Peter 2:24) and enter the kingdom to be a light to the Gentiles (Isaiah 42:6). That which was prophesied will be fulfilled, the nations will be blessed by Israel (Genesis 18:18 Genesis 26:4). 1 Peter 1:3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, Israel has been born again by the lively hope of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus. They can have full assurance that their baptism will save them since Jesus has been raised again and is alive in heaven on the right hand of God to save them and fulfill the new covenant. 1 Peter 5:4 And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away. The resurrection of Jesus assured Israel that their salvation would be realized by his coming.    
  9. Hi There are actually more than two gospels: And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the heathen through faith, preached before the gospel unto Abraham, saying, In thee shall all nations be blessed. Galatians 3:8 The gospel was given to Abraham. A gospel is glad tidings, good news. The obligation of mankind is to believe what God said. Abraham believed. And he brought him forth abroad, and said, Look now toward heaven, and tell the stars, if thou be able to number them: and he said unto him, So shall thy seed be. Genesis 15:5 And he believed in the LORD; and he counted it to him for righteousness. Genesis 15:6 The gospel was given to Israel in the wilderness. (Hebrews 3:17) For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it. Hebrews 4:2 What gospel was the writer of Hebrews referring to ? Behold, I have set the land before you: go in and possess the land which the LORD sware unto your fathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give unto them and to their seed after them. Deuteronomy 1:8 The gospel of entering into God's rest thru belief in the book of Hebrews is not the same gospel given to Israel in the wilderness to possess the land. We can see how the word gospel can have more than just one use in the Bible. The everlasting gospel preached during the tribulation. And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people, Revelation 14:6 Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters. Revelation 14:7 Paul said ...Galatians 1:8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. Now here is an angel preaching the everlasting gospel, another gospel, so what Paul said must be rightly divided. Peter was not preaching another gospel and was not accursed. Peter was commanded to preach the gospel to Israel. Israel's gospel at the time was not the same as Paul's and for a time overlapped. God by each gospel, given by each Peter and Paul, through Israel and the Gentiles, was reconciling heaven and earth to himself.
  10. Hi The church of God is was persecuted by Paul 1 Corinthians 15:9). The church of God was composed of both Jew and Gentile believers who believed the gospel of Peter and the apostles (Acts 10:45-48)....they are in Christ but not in the body of Christ (1 Corinthians 1:2 Romans 16:7) ...they are best called by me and others as new testament saints or kingdom saints They would have entered the Davidic earthly kingdom and inherit the promised land (Luke 12:32 Ezekiel 36:24) .
  11. Hi The church of God is was persecuted by Paul.

  12. Hi I get what you are saying about another gospel Thanks
  13. Hello Good to hear from you. One more reply: You said....."Now when you say there are `two gospels` it sounds like you are saying there are two separate gospels." There are two gospels. Peter preached the gospel of Jesus, the Christ, the Son of God and believing on his name....... the new testament...the kingdom. Paul preached the gospel of Christ.....the cross for salvation to all freely by his propitiation....the resurrection for our justification. You said....."However you then go on to say that the gospel that the 12 preached was the foundation of Paul`s gospel. So I think it would be better and more understandable by others, if you just said that, and then went on to show the further revelation." It is not that simple. I gave you the article on the gospel of God.....Paul preached the mysteries revealed by Jesus but he also preached the law and the prophets. Not only are there two gospels there are three churches. The church identified in old testament Israel as seen below: Acts 7:38 This is he, that was in the church in the wilderness with the angel which spake to him in the mount Sina, and with our fathers: who received the lively oracles to give unto us: The church of God composed of New testament believers who believed the gospel of the twelve apostles. 1 Corinthians 15:9 For I am the least of the apostles, that am not meet to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God. The church the body of Christ. Colossians 1:24 Who now rejoice in my sufferings for you, and fill up that which is behind of the afflictions of Christ in my flesh for his body's sake, which is the church:
  14. Hello Below is the article I posted on the Gospel of God: Romans 1:1 Paul, a servant of Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle, separated unto the gospel of God, 1:2 (Which he had promised afore by his prophets in the holy scriptures,) 1:3 Concerning his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, which was made of the seed of David according to the flesh; 1:4 And declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead: Romans 15:16 That I should be the minister of Jesus Christ to the Gentiles, ministering the gospel of God, that the offering up of the Gentiles might be acceptable, being sanctified by the Holy Ghost. Paul was preaching the gospel of God; according to the scriptures, the law and prophets. The gospel of God is the progressive revelation of God concerning Jesus Christ. It progressively revealed the justification to eternal life which is in Christ Jesus. Promised by the law and the prophets, and found in scriptures. The gospel of God reveals that Jesus is the Son of God. It encompasses God's grace; God reconciling sinful mankind to himself; reconciling both heaven and earth in Christ. Starting with Adam, by whom, sin entered, and death by sin. God revealed the promise of a seed, which is Christ, for salvation. See Genesis 3:15 God revealed the righteousness by faith from Abraham, who believed God when the gospel was preached to him. See Galatians 3:6 Galatians 3:8 God further revealed the promised seed in regard to Abraham. Galatians 3:16 The gospel of God revealed Moses and the law. The law, which imputes sin, by which there is the knowledge of sin. The law, our schoolmaster, to bring us to Christ. See Romans 3:20 and Galatians 3:24 God revealed that Jesus, our righteousness, would come through the seed of David, and the establishment of the everlasting kingdom and throne. See 2 Timothy 2:8 and Hebrews 1:8 God revealed that Jesus, who is the righteousness of God, the promised seed, was in the midst of Israel and is the Christ, the Son of God and that justification to eternal life was given to those who believe on the name of Jesus. God revealed that Jesus would shed his blood, and die, for the new testament. See Acts 13:23 and Matthew 26:28 The gospel of God declares Jesus is the Son of God by his resurrection which was foretold in the law and the prophets. The resurrection was also revealed to the twelve disciples by Jesus Himself. See Psalms 16:10 Matthew 20:19 Paul would preach the gospel of God, in which, he proved Jesus as Christ, the Son of God from the scriptures. He preached repentance toward God and faith toward the Lord Jesus Christ. See Acts 9:20 Acts 17:3 Acts 28:23 and Acts 20:21 Paul revealed all the elements that comprised the gospel of God, which foretells, and reveals that Jesus is the promised seed that would be the Saviour, the Christ, and the Son of God. The gospel of God is the bedrock for the gospel of the grace of God, the gospel of Christ, for Paul's gospel to reveal the full accomplishment of the cross, and the grace of God, in Christ Jesus, that provides salvation freely by faith alone in Christ. In contrast to the gospel of God, what Paul taught of the mystery, revealed by Christ, was not found in the scriptures of the law and prophets. The mystery, that God would reveal by Paul, was the salvation of the cross to all who believe, apart from Israel and it's covenants. Revealed was the church, a new creature, the Body of Christ. Revealed was all blessings in heavenly places in Christ. Peter would preach the gospel of God when he preached the resurrection of Christ in Acts 2:27. In 1 Peter 4:17 Peter strengthens the Jews who will undergo suffering in the tribulation, and warns those who do not obey the gospel of God, when they give account at the judgement.    
  15. Hello The foundation of the twelve is found in the gospel of God which Paul preached. The gospel of God is the progressive revelation of the gospel found starting in the prophecy and promise in Genesis.
