๐Ÿ’ก๐Ÿ‘‘ Was Paul Saved Under the Kingdom Program?

No, Paul was โ€œa blasphemerโ€ (I Tim. 1:13) who, as a strict,ย Law-abiding Pharisee (Acts 26:5), would never blasphemeย the Father, but was among those who blasphemed the Spiritย when they stoned Stephen (Acts 7:51-8:1). This rendered himย ineligible for salvation under the kingdom program, for theย Lord had warned, โ€œhim that blasphemeth against the Holyย Ghostย it shall not be forgivenโ€ (Luke 12:10).

How then could God save Saul? Well, remember that theย Lord had warned, โ€œwhosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost,ย it shall not be forgiven him,ย neither in this world, neither in theย world to comeโ€ (Matt. 12:32). The nation of Israel blasphemedย the Spirit in the world that the Lord spoke of as โ€œthis worldโ€ย when they rejected Stephen, a man filled with the Spirit (Actsย 7:55). โ€œThe world to comeโ€ is defined in Hebrews 2:5 as theย kingdom, the โ€œworldโ€ which God will โ€œput in subjectionโ€ underย Christ, where people will fully know โ€œthe powers of the worldย to comeโ€ (Heb. 6:5) that they only tasted at Pentecost.

Since blasphemy against the Spirit was unforgivable in bothย those worlds, we know Saul was saved under the program ofย a wholeย newย world, the dispensation of grace, โ€œthis worldโ€ inย which we live (Eph. 1:21), โ€œthis present worldโ€ in which we areย to walk and please God (Titus 2:12). source
