"MY GOSPEL" - Gospel of UNCIRCUMCISION (Gal. 2:7)

Rom. 16:25-26 Gal. 1:11-12; 2:2 II Cor. 5:19-21 [to those Gentiles with Israel]

Rom. 16:25-26 (a free translation, and very literal): (Vs. 25) "Now to the one being able to establish you according to "My Gospel," and the proclamation of Jesus Christ, according to a revelation of a mystery (secret) which was hushed up since age-times, (Vs. 26) "But now manifested through prophetic writings according to a command of the Eternal God, made known unto all the nations for Faith-Obedience."

CONTENT

II Cor. 5:19-21:

(Vs. 19) "To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto Himself, not counting their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation."

(Vs. 20) "Therefore, we are ambassadors on behalf of Christ... BE YE RECONCILED TO God!

(Vs. 21) "For He (God) hath made Him (Christ Jesus) SIN for us. He (Christ) who knew no sin; in order that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him (Christ)."

THE FAITH - God's gift to us (vs. 19 and 21).

PERSONAL FAITH - our response to The Faith (vs. 20).

OBEDIENCE TO THE FAITH - measured by our personal faith.

CONTEXT

THE REVEALED PLAN: "My Gospel" - a prophecy hushed up. Deut. 32: 20-21 - until the appointed time - to provoke Israel to jealousy

FULFILLED - (Rom. 11:11-14), concerning the Kingdom (Government) of the heavens. (Matt. 13:35) [Also note Psa.78:1-4, Jonah 3:6-10.]

ADDRESSED TO THE NATIONS.

REVEALED UNTO THE APOSTLE PAUL.

When - Following his conversion, after many days over a three-year period (Acts 9:23; Ga1:11, 12, and 16).

Where - Arabia (Gal. 1:17, 18).

Some have thought that the Mystery referred to in "My Gospel" to be the same as "The Mystery" in Paul's prison letters. However, if you try the things which differ (Phil.1:10), there is no reason to misunderstand.

THE MYSTERY - a HIDDEN PURPOSE

MYSTERY of MY GOSPEL - not Hidden in God (Eph. 3:9) hidden, but hushed up.

THE MYSTERY CONTEXT - Before the foundation

ADDRESSED to the SAINTS

MY GOSPEL CONTEXT - the Revealed Plan (overthrow) of the worldSince (not before) (Matt.13:35)

ADDRESSED to the NATIONS
