Paul: Doctrine Part 2


PAUL: Doctrine- Part 2

"But ye shall receive power by the HOLY Spirit coming upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth. " Acts 1:8

This is the real deal. Experienced by eleven of the twelve apostles whom Jesus had chosen, along with other disciples, bringing the number (on the day of Pentecost) to 120. As for Saul? He was "yet breathing out threatenings and slaughter against the disciples of the Lord" not part of this true experience. As Paul, his only evidence was hearsay evidence: testimony given by a witness based on what he has heard from another person. Paul never had the true experience. And what religious Christians are experiencing with regard to receiving power by the Holy Spirit is not a true experience. It is an imitation a mockery, which has been going on for the past two thousand years, ever since the seed or word of God appeared on earth. "In Isaac shall the seed be called," the word Isaac meaning promise and mockery the true and the imitation. Before the day of Pentecost could take place, the iniquity that is responsible for the mockery had to be removed. Judas, who bought a field with the reward of iniquity, was removed, replaced with Mathias, meaning gift of God. The power is in the gift, which the holy spirit delivers. Christians must first remove the religious iniquity.

There had to be twelve bearing witness to the resurrection of Jesus, illustrating the spiritual resurrection of spiritual truth through a spiritual judgment. Sitting upon twelve thrones and judging the twelve tribes of Israel is a spiritual act.

"And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That ye which have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel." Matthew 19:28

"And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image... and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. Revelation 20:4

The number 12 represent judgment. Judging the twelve tribes of Israel formulates to 12 x 12, which equals 144, which like the 120 associated with the day of Pentecost, is, ultimately, a spiritual measure"the measure of a man" (Rev. 21:17).

"All that took place physically in the era of Isaac (baptisms, anointings, fastings, healings, speaking in tongues, casting out devils, etc.) are now, in the third and final era of Jacob or era of Spirit, to take place spiritually. Any physical demonstrations of these are associated with the negative aspect of the era of Isaac, which is mockery." -The Bible Decoded

More teachings from Paul...

"Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed. In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the LAST TRUMP: for the trumpet must sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed."

Thanks to Paul's teachings Christians think that they are changed the moment they accept Jesus Christ as their personal savior. To say that we shall not all sleep, which clearly is not about sleep, but about physical death, is simply not true. Everone of us will die a physical death. And when we do, our spiritual condition does not change. We are not raised incorruptible as far as our spiritual condition. The only thing that does change is our physical condition, our corruptible body changed into an incorruptible body. There will be no more suffering on a physical level. However, whatever spiritual state we cross over in is the same spiritual state we will be raised in. While a wrong thought can be changed immediately upon hearing the truth, the corruption of the heart does not just disappear the moment we are resurrected. Paul's teachings have prevented Christians from doing the spiritual works through which they would experience true salvation"The harvest is past, the summer is ended, and we are not saved." Jeremiah 8:20

Paul teaches that one fulfils "the law of Christ" (only found in the Pauline Epistles) by bearing one another's burden. This is in direct opposition to what Jesus and the Prophet Jeremiah teaches. Jesus teaches us to bear our own burden by his carrying of the cross. Not that the burden was his to carry in the first place, as the word of God, which is truth, carries no burden it makes us free. Man puts the burden upon himself through his own word of lies, as he put the burden upon the Lord (the word of truth made flesh) through his iniquities.

"And as for the prophet, and the priest, and the people, that shall say, The burden of the Lord, I will even punish that man and his house... And the burden of the Lord shall he mention no more: for every man's word shall be his burden; for ye have perverted the words of the living God..." Jeremiah 23:34,36

Paul teaches that Christ has made us free. "Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage." Galatians 5:1. This is where Christians get the idea that they are free from the yoke of bondage the moment they accept Jesus Christ as their personal savior. Maybe they are liberated from some physical addiction, a degree of liberation that comes by believing in the literal name of Jesus through the power of their mind. However, the power behind the physical bondage or addiction is not destroyed through this level of belief. It has simply been transferred to something less conspicuous their newly founded religious belief, for example, which gives them a false sense of empowerment, which like any physical addiction, is not easy to walk away from. They will have to BELIEVE on a deeper level, performing spiritual works through that healing power called christ, overcoming their spiritual bondages or addictions.

"If I do not the works of my Father, believe me not. But if I do, though ye believe not me, believe the works..." John 10:37, 38. The word believe means to obey or put action to.
