THE KNOWLEDGE OF HIM
By Robert E. Hanna
William R Newell has written, "Paul is God's messenger and apostle to the Gentiles. Therefore, he who knows not Paul's Gospel is ignorant of what God has to say in these times of the Gentiles. Paul's letters constitute an INDEPENDENT and COMPLETE body of doctrine. They reveal not only God's method of salvation in this age, but also the true character, calling and destiny of the Church. Paul has spoken with authority from God the Father and from the Lord Jesus Christ those great facts which concern Christ and the purposes of God in Him, which pertain to THIS PRESENT AGE."
Thus Paul is our apostle-we who are today saved by the grace of God in this present dispensation of His grace. As our apostle, he prays for us, "That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in THE KNOWLEDGE OF HIM: the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of His calling, and what the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the exceeding greatness of His power to us-ward who believe, according to the mighty working of His power, which He wrought in Christ, when He raised Him from the dead, and set Him at His own right hand in the heavenly places."
Sadly, most professing Christian believers have been reared in tradition, "churchianity," moral philosophies, and humanism. Accordingly, they have never really been exposed the pure truth of God's Word, Scripture. Those who are sincere believers, though ~ey are saved, have not the full joy in their hearts that God has provided.
