WHAT IS PAULINE? 2
How did Paul receive his gospel?!
1 Corinthians 15:3-6 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;
And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve:
After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep.
According to the SCRIPTURES.
That word ‘scriptures’ is usually rendered GRAPHE in the Greek.
It connotes the PROPHETIC SCRIPTURES.
This was How Paul revealed Jesus.
This is what we mean by JESUS IS THE EXPLANATION OF ALL THINGS.
Not some funny revelations of Jesus = fine stones that killed Goliath.
Not some deranged talk like JESUS IS THE RED SEA etc.
Better be sure what you are listening to, don’t run mad willingly.
Paul’s doctrine didn’t come from some imaginations, it was via the unfolding of that which was spoken of Christ.
Even the Lord revealed Himself this way.
Luke 24:25-27 Then he said unto them, O fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken:
Ought not Christ to have suffered these things, and to enter into his glory?
And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself.
Luke 24:44-47 And he said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me.
Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures,
And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day:
And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.
This is how the Lord revealed Himself to Paul and other disciples.
2 Peter 1:16-21 For we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of his majesty.
For he received from God the Father honour and glory, when there came such a voice to him from the excellent glory, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.
And this voice which came from heaven we heard, when we were with him in the holy mount.
We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts:
Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.
For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.
The prophecies fulfilled were not some MENTAL CALCULATIONS.
SOME CUNNINGLY DEVISED FABLES!!
Peter corroborates again.
1 Peter 1:9-12 Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls.
Of which salvation the prophets have enquired and searched diligently, who prophesied of the grace that should come unto you:
Searching what, or what manner of time the Spirit of Christ which was in them did signify, when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should follow.
Unto whom it was revealed, that not unto themselves, but unto us they did minister the things, which are now reported unto you by them that have preached the gospel unto you with the Holy Ghost sent down from heaven; which things the angels desire to look into.
If you don’t understand this, you are going into error.
Look at how Paul taught TIMOTHY DOCTRINE.
2 Timothy 3:14-17 But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them;
And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.
All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.
DOCTRINE IS SIMPLY UNVEILING OF THE PROPHETIC SCRIPTURES AS FULFILLED!!
