This is the Gospel that SAVES today!
It is not found in Acts 2:38 or the red letters, you only find it in Paul’s Epistles because it was a mystery hidden in God since BEFORE the world began.
All through the Old Testament, the four Gospels, and early Acts it was hidden in God not even hinted at in scripture.
Yes, that includes Pentecost in Acts 2 which is not the birth of the Church the Body of Christ but the fullfillment of prophecy for Israel; the church added to was Jewish, the hearers and 3000 added were Jews and won’t actually receive eternal salvation until Jesus second coming to set up the kingdom of heaven on earth. (Acts 2:38 – repent and be baptized, Acts 3:19 – sins blotted out at the times of refreshing: second coming).
The Church the Body of Christ began when the first member got saved, Paul, in Acts 9. This is when the Church of today began when the GLORIFIED RISEN CHRIST shined down from heaven’s glory 👉after👈 Israel blasphemed the Holy Ghost -the unpardonable sin – in Acts 7 and the kingdom program (prophecy known since the world began) was put in time out and saves Paul putting into play the secret hidden in God since BEFORE “Let there be light”.
Paul is the one Christ gave this mystery of what was truly accomplished by His finished work of the cross – His death burial and resurrection not Peter or any of the twelve.
This is the Gospel found in 👉1 Corinthians 15:3-4 👈and the ONLY way to get saved today is to believe that!
👉Believe it plus nothing, it’s a gift. 👈 You don’t deserve it, can never earn it and if you try you reject it. You can’t do what Christ has done.
Accept the free gift of God’s grace by believing that Christ died for all your sins past present and future ( they were all future 2000 years ago at the cross) was buried and rose the third day for your justification and that instant you are saved, and sealed by the Holy Spirit into Christ, and it is finished. That’s Ephesians 1:13 by the way. It’s a done deal, you can’t lose it and you can’t throw it away. You’re saved sealed and set apart from this works into the Body of Christ a brand new creature already seated in Christ in heavenly places!
Not born again!👉 BUT NEW CREATURE,👈 very different, born again is earthly as Israel is earthly and at Christ’s second coming they will as a nation be born again but we will have already been caught up taken to heaven with Christ as His body.
2 Corinthians 5:17 KJV — “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”
Galatians 6:15 KJV — “For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision, but a new creature.”
Just believe in His death burial and resurrection and you are saved forever that’s the simplicity of Paul’s My Gospel and it’s what the Glorified Risen Christ says we are to believe today.
