2019 – TUESDAY 21 MAY
THE WRITINGS OF PAUL
In his latter days God arranged for Paul to be kept under house arrest by the Romans.
During this time he did his greatest work – that of writing letters to the churches – instructing them in all manner of life and godliness.
Therefore I am amazed at how many people treat his writings as optional to the gospel.
THEY ARE NOT OF GOD
I recently had an enlightened soul challenge me regarding the writings of Paul – declaring they were not of God – and therefore not applicable for all time.
THEY ARE TIME AND PLACE SPECIFIC
The easiest way to cancel out the NT commands of God – is to relegate them to a time and a place that is now irrelevant to our modern culture.
THEY ARE THE WRITINGS OF A FLAWED PERSON
The whole Bible is written by flawed people. That is why God inspired and supervised its writing and compilation.
THEY ARE NOT THE DIRECT WORDS OF GOD OR JESUS
Neither is the message you hear every Sunday. However we know that God chose the foolishness of preaching to confound the wise.
The essence of the gospel is – to go into all the world and preach.
God’s word in our mouth is the same as God’s word in His mouth.
SELECTIVE ACCEPTANCE MAKES YOU GOD
You cannot accept one part of God’s word and not another.
I am so thankful for the Old and New Testaments. They reveal the grace and truth of God’s Kingdom.
Sad to see churches with word ignorant people.
Sad to see churches built on selective obedience.
Sad to see Jesus of the New Testament not being found in the Old Testament.
IT IS COMING AGAIN – OBEDIENCE TO THE WORD OF GOD
