πŸ’‘πŸ‘‘ Have You Heard Of The Dispensation Of Grace?

β€œIf ye have heard of the dispensation of the grace of God which is given me to you-ward” (Eph. 3:2).

Could it be that those to whom Paul addressed his Ephesian letter had not yet heard that God had committed to him β€œthe dispensation of grace”?

Next to the death and resurrection of Christ, the conversion of Paul and his commission to proclaim β€œthe gospel of the grace of God” (Acts 20:24) was the greatest event in history . The apostles at Jerusalem had recognized the importance of Paul’s part in the divine program. They themselves had at first been sent by Christ into β€œall the world,” yet in Gal. 2:9 we find James, Peter and John publicly shaking hands with Paul in a solemn agreement that he should henceforth be the apostle to the nations.

Could it be that someΒ twelve years later, when he wrote the Ephesian letter, there were many who professed the name of Christ who had not heard of Paul’s special place in the program of God as the apostle of grace? Little wonder his words β€œif ye have heard” carry with them a touch of reproach.

It is possible, of course, that there were some among them, but recently brought into the Church, who had not heard. But what seems utterly incredible, however, is that there should be even one believer at this late date who has not heard that after Christ and His kingdom had been rejected and the world was ripe for prophesied judgment to fall, God intervened by saving Saul, His chief enemy on earth, and sending him forth with β€œthe good news of the grace of God.”

This good news is based, of course, upon the fact that since Christ was the spotless Lamb of God, His death is accepted by God as full satisfaction for the sinner. Thus Paul, by divine inspiration, declares that believers are β€œjustified freely by His [God’s] grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus” (Rom.Β 3:24). source

  1. Victory belongs to Jesus Christ of Nazareth King of Kings n Lord of lords, am very glad to share with you this precious Holyspirit directed study which I do believe is a corner stone for all over us who believe that Jesus Christ of Nazareth is the only begotten son of God in whom God did put all power through the Holy Spirit despite a fact that his own brethren received him not, Paul the apostle who once upon a time caught and caused havok a rebel of the background of phareesim could not stand against the power of God for it it’s written in the Holy Bible” in the beginning was the word and the word was with God and the word was God” my personal view here is Paul was prepared before even Jesus Christ came in human nature as a son to Mary and Joseph, God had a secret plan to use a rebel in order to prove unto all the house of lsreal that He (God) has power over all things through His son Jesus Christ of Nazareth, hence making Saul a vivid exmple to them that once sent him to detain and/or perhaps to kill innocent believers who followed Jesus Christ King of Kings n Lord of lords, thus making ends meet amicably by sending Paul to preach a gospel very important and different from that which the disciples did preach during and after Jesus Christ ministry making Paul the apostle of the gentiles all over the world Peace be with thee may God protect bless and provide unto you and your families in Jesus Christ mighty name I pray Amen Victory belongs to Jesus Christ of Nazareth King of Kings n Lord of lords cheers forever

Bible Verse for 2/18/19

For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. — Romans 8:38-39
