God Reveals Christ To Us

God Reveals Christ To Us. Paul was trained by the grace (enablement) of God all his life. Paul said he ravaged the church, but one day God called Paul and revealed His Son Jesus Christ to Paul. It wasn’t Paul, or we, who decide one day to come to Christ. Scripturally, a day comes when God calls us and reveals Jesus Christ to us.

Galatians Part 3 Paul gives his autobiography in this section. False teaching removes us from Christ. Paul didn’t receive his teaching from men. His teaching was revelation from God. How much of what we are taught is from men rather than revelation from God?

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:

(KJV)

1:15-16 But when it pleased God, who separated me from my mother’s womb, and called me by his grace,
16 To reveal his Son in me, that I might preach him among the heathen; immediately I conferred not with flesh and blood:

(TEV, formerly GNB)

1:15-16 But God in his grace chose me even before I was born, and called me to serve him. And when he decided
16 to reveal his Son to me, so that I might preach the Good News about him to the Gentiles, I did not go to anyone for advice,

(NASV)

1:15-16 But when God, who had set me apart even from my mother’s womb and called me through His grace, was pleased

(NLT)

1:15-16 But even before I was born, God chose me and called me by his marvelous grace. Then it pleased him

(TEV)

Matthew 7:21-23

21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

Galatians 1:18 Then after three years I went up to Jerusalem to see Peter, and abode with him fifteen days.
19 But other of the apostles saw I none, save James the Lord’s brother.

Acts 9:20-25

20 And straightway he preached Christ in the synagogues, that he is the Son of God.
21 But all that heard him were amazed, and said; Is not this he that destroyed them which called on this name in Jerusalem, and came hither for that intent, that he might bring them bound unto the chief priests?
22 But Saul increased the more in strength, and confounded the Jews which dwelt at Damascus, proving that this is very Christ.

23 And after that many days were fulfilled, the Jews took counsel to kill him:
24 But their laying await was known of Saul. And they watched the gates day and night to kill him.
25 Then the disciples took him by night, and let him down by the wall in a basket.

24 And they glorified God in me.
