Understanding the Apostle Paul’s Gospel

The RACE that God has set before every Christian

For those Christians who value what life-after-death represents, the key to eternal life with Christ is to understand and OBEY the Apostle Paul’s Gospel.

The Bible indicates that the Gospel of Jesus Christ (Ephesians 2:8-9) that is commonly preached in the churches today represents spiritual ‘BAIT’. On the contrary, “sound doctrine” represents spiritual “meat”:

"For when for the time [after spending many years in church] ye ought to be [spiritually mature as] teachers, ye have need that one [such as a baby Christian] teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God [using 'BAIT']; and [over the time] are become [so immature as babies] such as have need of [MORE] MILK, and not of STRONG MEAT. [meaning, sound Bible-based doctrine - 2 Timothy 4:3]"  (Hebrews 5:12)

The difference between the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the Apostle Paul’s Gospel is this:

  • Christ’s Gospel has only to be believed and accepted IN FAITH AND BY GRACE ALONE (Ephesians 2:8-9). On the contrary, the…
  • Apostle Paul’s Gospel MUST BE OBEYED for Salvation to be attained!

God designed this ‘BAIT‘ for use by Christ’s ‘fishermen’ to save the souls that are “lost” in Satan’s kingdom through personal evangelism.

All Christians are required to become “fishers of men” (Mathew 24:14). Christians who have spent many years sitting in church pews cannot rely on BAIT for their eventual Salvation.

But they [meaning today’s Christians] HAVE NOT ALL OBEYED THE [Apostle Paul’s] GOSPEL. For Esaias [Isaiah 53:1] saith, Lord, who hath believed our report?”  (Romans 10:16)

The Eight Stages of Biblical Salvation

The image describes the eight stages of Initial and Final Salvation that are necessary for Salvation

This article will explain in detail the Eight Stages of Biblical Salvation necessary for Christians to avoid spending eternity in Hell.

Each of the above stages is essential for Christians to experience the “revelation of the mystery” to understand how to “run the race” that each Christian must “run” – spiritually.

Salvation says:  "...and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, 2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith"

“…and let us RUN WITH PATIENCE the RACE THAT IS SET BEFORE USLooking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith…”  (Heb 12:1-2)

It is every Christian’s responsibility to RUN WITH PATIENCE their RACE to avoid spending eternity in Hell.

The Gospel of Initial and Final Salvation closely associates with the Apostle Paul’s Gospel that he termed “My Gospel“. This is the ONLY Gospel that will give Christians the promises of eternal life that God has promised.

The Gospel of Initial and Final Salvation

Initial and Final Salvation

Throughout the last two centuries of Christianity, the ‘gospel’ being preached centers upon Salvation through faith alone (Eph 2:9).

However, this Faith Alone ‘gospel’ fails to address the need for any accompanying “works” mentioned in Eph 2:10. In this, Paul said, we were “…created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them“.

The Bible says that God the Father regularly inspects each christian for spiritual “fruit” (John 15:2).

The Christians symbolised as “branches” grafted into Jesus “the Vine” (John 15:5) can only produce “fruit” from “works” (James 2:26). These “works” are produced to fulfill God the Father’s will (Matt 12:50) . 

This is why God requires Christians to accept and implement Initial and Final Salvation. This is because ONLY Final Salvation accommodates both faith” + “works” and the spiritual maturity that accompanies these “works“.

Final Salvation: Christians must ‘Run the ‘Race’

God has established the requirement for every Christian to “Run the Race” that has been established for them:

“…let us [meaning every Christian] RUN WITH PATIENCE THE RACE that is set before us, 2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith…”Heb 12:1-2

Once modern-day (unsaved) individuals hear the Gospel message—those who believe and then accept the ‘Good News’ by confessing Jesus Christ with their mouth, the Bible says that such people are ‘Saved’ from spending eternity in Hell (Rom 10:9-10).

However, such people are yet to run the race God has established for every Christian to embark upon and hopefully finish.

This ‘race’ is necessary because there is a Devil dwelling among us who does not like sinners ‘Saved’ out of his kingdom of lies, unbelief, sins, hatred, etc. into God’s kingdom of truth, mercy, peace and Godly love (i.e. “charity” — 2 John 1:3). 

After Satan has lost one of his own to Jesus, his role is to have such people:

Further Proof Most Christians are Not Saved!

Salvation Analysis for 2024

The article that follows presents new data that provides further proof that most Christians are not saved! This confirms the claim I made four years ago that MOST Christians are not saved.

In March 2020, I posted an article here titled, ‘PROOF that MOST Christians are NOT SAVED‘. The article used statistics from a Google advertising campaign I ran that proved (to me anyway) that Christians today have little regard for the Salvation that Jesus Christ purchased for them at the cross. I encourage you to read that article, to appreciate the basis of why I am now writing this article.

PROOF that MOST Christians are NOT SAVED!

PROOF that MOST Christians are NOT SAVED

An advertising campaign I ran some time ago using Google ads produced statistical proof that most Christians are not Saved!

To illustrate that this situation has been a pattern of God’s people throughout millennia, the Bible reveals that in the days of Noah (Luke 17:26-27) it was only Noah and his seven other family members who were saved from that world-wide flood.  If it is assumed that there were 1 billion people on the Earth at the time, this means that the percentage saved would be 0.0000008%.

Similarly, ALL of the inhabitants of the cities associated with Sodom and Gomorrah perished in the fire and brimstone that rained down upon them from Heaven — but it was only Lot and his two daughters who were saved from that catastrophe (Gen 19:24; 30).  Again, it was a very tiny percentage of people who were ‘finally Saved’ from God’s judgments.

Often the Bible talks about a “remnant” of God’s people that were saved (rather than a multitude) as can be seen in these the Bible references (Rom 9:27; 2 Kings 19:30-31; Ezra 9:8; Isa 1:9; 10:21-22; 11:16).

The Wise and Foolish Virgins

The Bible contains many truths in the parable of the Wise and Foolish Virgins that preachers prefer to ignore. It is because of this that many Foolish Christians will be left-behind after the Rapture.

This article looks at what each of the symbols represent in this parable. This is to allow Christians to appreciate how significant this message from Jesus is. It represents a warning that highlights what events will take place leading up to the (Pre-Trib) Rapture.

Are “FEW” or MANY “Virgins” saved at the Rapture?

Works of Faith

The New Testament is very clear that God the Father requires to see Christians demonstrate “works of faith” (James 2:20-26). This is so every Christian is able to bring forth spiritual “fruit” (John 15:1-9) into His kingdom.

The spiritual “fruit” referred to represents the lost souls in this world. These are those who are living a life of sin (Luke 15:10). This is because Satan has ensnared them in unbelief (Heb 4:6). The only way to “save” them (Rom 10:14) is for God’s people to preach the True Gospel. The Gifts of the Spirit (Mark 16:20) should accompany such preaching, as stated in the scripture verse below:

"And they [Christ's disciples] went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word WITH SIGNS FOLLOWING. Amen." ( Mark 16:20)  — Jesus speaking

The Significance of Loving Truth

Truth vs lies

The significance of “Loving Truth” is closely associated with Salvation. On the contrary, I have discovered that human nature has a habit of avoiding “Loving Truth” in favour for “Convenient Truth”.

When circumstances dictate that people must face up to, they invariably do everything they can to avoid the issue. In this, they often fail to appreciate that their Creator is wanting them to confront whatever “truth” He has placed before them. God does this to determine if He is able to present to them the most important truth in their life, which often involves the Gospel message of Salvation in Jesus Christ.

Therefore, it can be seen that “having a love of the truth” is essential for Salvation to be achieved.

Understanding My Gospel

The Apostle Paul termed “My Gospel’ and his other teachings a “mystery”. He therefore required Christians to develop knowledge, wisdom and understanding of the scriptures (Col 1:9) to attain spiritual maturity so as to fully appreciate what he was saying.

Paul also stated that “OBEDIENCE of the faith” (Rom 16:26) is a basic requirement of Salvation. Such “Obedience” must be understood and applied in the Christian life (Rom 10:16) for salvation to be achieved.

The ‘Mystery’ of the Gospel

If Paul considered ‘My Gospel’ to be a “mystery”, why then are the modern gospels so simple in their presentation?  Could it be that there is MORE to the True Gospel of Jesus Christ than most Christians have been told or believe? Have the modern gospels replaced “obedience” with tolerance and “love” (Phil 1:17)?
