This Bible Study chart illustrates the philosophical harmony of the messages proclaimed by God's servants through the centuries.
For example, the Gospel of the Kingdom, proclaimed by our LORD and the twelve, NATURALLY takes us back to David and the great covenant of the Messianic Kingdom made with him. Similarly, the Gospel of the Circumcision, proclaimed later at Pentecost, NATURALLY takes us back to Abraham and the covenant of circumcision, guaranteeing the blessing of the Gentiles through the seed of Abraham, NOT Abram.
Study the rest for yourself until you get to the most blessed message of all, The Mystery. The Mystery, proclaimed by the Apostle Paul and based, NOT on covenants, or prophecies, but based on God's own purpose and Grace given us in Christ Jesus BEFORE the world began. 2 Timothy 1:9.
In Ephesians 1:13 the Holy Spirit through the Apostle Paul declares that men are saved and sealed by hearing and BELIEVING the Word of Truth, the Gospel of your Salvation. Therefore, here, now, is declared unto you the Word of Truth, the Gospel of your Salvation: "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" 1 Corinthians 15:3-4. BELIEVE today. The time is short.
So There You Have it!
Spread this message to everyone you know, far and wide.
Grace be to you and peace, from God: our Father, and The LORD Jesus Christ.
In The LORD Jesus Christ,
