    Which Gospel, According To God’s WORD Of Truth, Rightly Divided!

    Grace And Peace, Precious friend(s).

    Yes, we all Should "be Rapture ready" But, Should we not Also "fulfil
    God's Purpose" For us, Get HIS Great GRACE Gospel to the lost, finding the
    "last member" Of The Body Of CHRIST, And, Then we Can be Caught Up In
    Great GRACE Departure to Go HOME, Forever!?
    Amen?

    Is The Following "God's Purpose"? Please Be Very RICHLY Blessed
    And Encouraged!:


    Approval Unto God!

    Grace And Peace From God, The Father, And From
    The LORD And Saviour, JESUS CHRIST!


    LORD JESUS, Before Thou Comest To Gather us Home To Heaven, Please
    Grant Thy Divine Help to understand Thy Word Of Truth, Rightly
    Divided!" Amen:


    What Would God, In HIS Age Of GRACE Today, Have us Also "DO,"
    that was "learned, and received, and heard, and seen, In Paul" ?
    (
    Phil 4:9 KJB!)

    "Study to shew thyself Approved Unto God, a workman That
    Needeth not to be ashamed, Rightly Dividing The Word Of Truth!"
    (
    2 Tim 2:15 KJB!)

    "Example" Of Rightly Dividing The Word Of Truth!:

    Leaders/Numbers / Salvation/Commissions in:

    God's TWO "Different" Programs {both with "Exactly THE SAME ONE gospel"?}:

    (1) Representative apostles + number! For: God’s LAW/PROPHETIC Program:

    prophesied since the world began!” (Luk 1:68-70; Acs 3:21 KJB!):

    God’s Complete Number TWELVE “represents:”

    TWELVE baptismS, TWELVE apostles who will rule in the "Prophesied" kingdom
    With CHRIST!, on TWELVE thrones, Over the TWELVE tribes of Israel!
    (Gen 49:28; Isa 9:7, 32:1; Mat 19:28; Luk 22:30; Jam 1:1!)

    gospel of the kingdom!:

    Salvation = "he that believeth AND is baptized Shall Be SAVED!"
    (Mrk 16:16 cp Luk 7:29-30; Acs 2:38; Jam 2:17-18 KJB!) ◄◄

    And Includes The LORD’s FIVE-Part Marching Orders, the
    so-called ( added as a “Page Header” in Bibles ) “Great Commission”:

    (1a):
    “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in The Name
    Of The Father, and Of The SON, and of The Holy Ghost: Teaching
    them to Observe ALL Things Whatsoever I Have Commanded you:
    and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen!”
    (Mat 28:19-20 KJB!)

    Including: “Observe ALL things WHATSOEVER I Have COMMANDED you!”:

    “Then Spake JESUS To the multitude, And To HIS disciples,
    Saying, The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses’ seat:
    ALL therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, that OBSERVE
    AND DO
    ; but do not ye after their works: for they say, and do not!”
    (Mat 23:1-3 KJB!)

    (1b):
    “And HE Said Unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the
    gospel to every creature. He that believeth And is baptized shall
    be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. And these
    signs Shall Follow them
    that believe: In MY Name shall they cast out
    devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents;

    and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they
    shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover…. And they went
    forth, and preached every where, The LORD Working With them,
    and Confirming The Word With signs following. Amen!”
    (Mrk 16:15-20 KJB!)

    (1c):
    “And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in
    HIS Name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. And ye are
    witnesses of these things. And, behold, I Send The Promise of MY
    Father Upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be
    endued with Power From On High!” (Luk 24:47-49 KJB!)

    (1d):
    “Then Said JESUS To them again, Peace Be Unto you: As MY Father
    Hath Sent ME, Even So Send I you. And When HE Had Said This, HE
    Breathed On them, And Saith Unto them, Receive ye The Holy Ghost:
    Whose soever sins ye remit, they are remitted unto them; and
    whose soever sins ye retain, they are retained!” (Joh 20:21-23 KJB!)

    (1e):
    “But ye shall receive power, after that The Holy Ghost Is Come Upon you:
    and ye shall be witnesses unto ME both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea,
    and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth!” (Acs 1:8 KJB!)

    Precious friends, after “comparing” Law vs GRACE! Which is FOR us Today? Or:
    Are they BOTH FOR us, today, in which case we ask:

    ALL The "NUMBERS experts" know there is A Vast
    "Difference" Between 12 And "ONE," Correct?

    Would not “Choosing” BOTH Make This Fatal ERROR, & we can just stay with
    the Modern "wonderful And marvelous 2000-year-old judeo/christian combo":

    (1) LAW + (2) GRACE = (3) "religious Confusion Of Contradictions"
    ................................................{ or, "Pick & Choose!" } Method…
    ..."remaining" as: a weak And Severely Divided Church, Displeasing
    God!, Correct?

    Friends, which of these "gospels do you Believe," In God’s Age
    Of GRACE
    Today, Are CURSED By God! (Gal 1:6-9 KJB!)?

    (2) Gospel of GRACE! || (1) gospel of the kingdom, (3) “Combo gospel”

    IF you happen to be participating in The Accursed:
    Please, repent/Obey God, As HE "Beseeches"!:

    "Wherefore Come Out from among them, and be ye Separate,
    Saith The LORD, And touch not the unclean [ ACCURSED!? ]
    thing; and I Will Receive you, And Will Be A Father Unto you,
    And ye Shall Be MY sons and daughters, Saith The LORD Almighty!"
    (
    2 Cor 6:17 KJB!)
    -----------------
    LORD JESUS, we humbly pray that Any And ALL
    confused over the
    "Division of Many Over salvation/baptismS/commissionS,” have been
    Truly Blessed With This Solving-The-Confusion study!
    Amen.
    -----------------
    GRACE/Repentance, Through Faith, & PEACE, Found In SCRIPTURE,
    to The Honor And GLORY Of GOD, The Father, Through The LORD And
    SAVIOUR, JESUS CHRIST!
    Amen?
    -----------------------------------------
    Concluding questions:

    (1) Precious friend(s), Do you believe you are:
    "Approved Unto God"? (2 Tim 2 : 15 KJB!)

    (2) Do you believe you should Turn Away FROM God’s “Chosen” Apostle
    Of HIS PURE GRACE {And God's
    Associated Gospel}?:

    "This thou knowest, that ALL THEY WHICH ARE IN ASIA TURNED AWAY
    From me; of whom are Phygellus and Hermogenes." (
    2 Tim 1:15 KJB!)
    --------

    Finally:
    Please Be Very RICHLY Blessed In “God’s WORD Of Truth, Rightly
    Divided” (
    2 Tim 2:15 KJB!)

    Precious friend(s), are you "Approved Unto God"? or, Are you "Grieving HIS Spirit"?

    And, whether "Imminent" Great GRACE Departure is “sooner OR Later”:
    Double Checked "Prepared And Ready" For IT!! ✔✔ Amen?

    Precious friend(s), looking forward to meeting you In God's Great GloryLand!!:amen:

    (Edit: I note the subject of the thread has changed since I first replied from a "rightly dividing the word of God" subject to a "more than one gospels" subject.)

    Whenever I see the term, rightly divided it's like a bible gets torn up the middle and tossed as far right is from left.

    If it's rightly divided, first, we must examine our motives.

    If we are not right, then our distinctions cannot be either.

    In terms of gospel, it means good news. If you're not telling good news, but stroking your ego by coveting to control your neighbor, it's not really good news at all.

    Way too much human thinking and reasoning here, rather than Biblical thinking and reasoning, being applied to explain God's word written.

    First, let's look at "mystery," which in the NT means, not something impossible to understand, but simply something formerly hidden, like a secret, but now revealed for everyone to know.

    Secondly, let's look at what the word "mystery" is used of:
    1) the incarnation (1Ti 3:16),
    2) the death of Christ (1Co 2:1), secret wisdom (1Co 2:7), manifold wisdom of God (Eph 3:9-12; Ro 16:25), referenced by you above,
    3) God's purpose to sum up all things in Christ, (Eph 1:9, 3:9-10), referenced by you above, especially
    4) to include both Jews and Gentiles in the one olive tree (Ro 11:17, 23-25), the NT church (Eph 3:3-6), referenced by you above,
    5) the change that will take place at the resurrection (1Co 15:51), and
    6) the plan of God by which a remnant of both Jew and Gentile will be included in the one olive tree of God's people (Ro 11:23-25).

    Thirdly, none of the above was understood until Paul revealed to us the revelation he received from Jesus Christ personally, in the third heaven.

    Anyone who claims this was already revealed in the OT, that it was not a secret until Paul revealed it to us in the NT, contradicts Paul and misunderstands the OT.

    The NT teaches that Israel's destiny is to be grafted back into the one olive tree of God's people, IF it does not persist in unbelief (Ro 11:23).

    Any view of Israel not in agreement with Paul's NT teaching received from Jesus Christ personally, in the third heaven,
    is putting the Bible in contradiction of itself.

    The Word of God does not contradict itself. . .rather, it is man that contradicts the Word of God.

    Agree "good news," but which of The TWO {or both "being Exactly The Same"}, is to be preached to the lost...

    Initially, I "was converted" By The GRACE "Good News," but, upon initiation of "going to church," was I "the neighbor they controlled," by "adding their traditional" portions
    of the "kingdom good news" that they "picked and chose" to get me under legalism?
    {took me 11 years to extricate myself from the Confusion, God Leading me to "Right Division!"} God, Please Help all new-born babes In Christ!...

    Simple. :)

    There is only one Gospel.

    God gave His Son to free us from sin.

    God has forgiven us because Jesus choose to die for us.

    If there is better news than that....I just cannot imagine.

    The Holy Spirit will help us to rightly devide the word.

    The spirit of the devil will help those who have that spirit, to devide the word to get what they want the bible to say, not what it really says.

    OP question: Which Gospel? Is there Only ONE, Or more?

    1 Gospel with dispensational administrations.

    We/humans are ALL sinners, deserving a sovereign creator God's heavenly LAWS required payment/judgment for transgression = DEATH!

    Gospel = Good news. What's the good news? God via his loving merciful grace, has provided sinners a way/path to a full pardon.

    God, 1st revealed his plan of redemption/sin forgiveness/reconciliation to Adam & Eve. When he covered them with/in sacrificed animal skins (Gen 3:21).

    Later on Mt Moriah, God, reveals his plan of redemption/sin forgiveness/reconciliation to Abraham. Abraham names the place: Jehovahjireh

    Gen 22:14 And Abraham called the name of that place Jehovahjireh: as it is said to this day, In the mount of the LORD it shall be seen.
    (NOTE: Jehovahjireh means = The Lord Will Provide. Ok, PROVIDE what? A SACRIFICE! The promised seed/Christ: = Is the redemptive SACRIFICE/Atonement!)

    Next God calls out a people, the Nation of Israel. He gives them the LAW (works required) a sacrificial system (to cover "NOT" remove sin) and promised them a Messiah/Savior that would provide thru faith (required in every dispensational administration) complete sin redemption/remission/forgiveness/removal/pardon from their sins. This gospel's focus was faith in the identity of the promised coming Messiah & to a people (Israel) God had set apart.

    BTW: There were NO gentiles on Mt Sinai when Moses gives the law. John the Baptist, baptizes NO gentiles in the wilderness. NO gentiles receive the Holy Spirit on the Temple Mt on the day of Pentecost in Acts 2. There are NO gentiles members in/of the early church in Jerusalem.

    It's not until after Israel rejects & has their long promised Messiah killed & Christ is resurrected (Father's stamp, sin's required wage received & accepted).

    The risen Christ calls out Paul & sends him to preach the gospel/good news to gentiles. Here faith is to be place in Christ's death, burial & resurrection.

    Eph 2:
    11 Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by that which is called the Circumcision in the flesh made by hands;

    12 That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world:

    13 But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ.
    (MY NOTE: Recap Vs 11 until after sins payment & resurrection uncircumcision/gentiles, Vs 12 were exempt from God's covenants of promise, having no hope & were lost without God & hope.)

    In short: Abraham had to have FAITH that God would later provide a sin savior.

    Israel had to have FAITH that Jesus was the promised sin savior (they had a temporary system for dealing with sin. Jesus was dwelling with them & didn't have to die. Christ's coming physical Kingdom could have begun then. Would gentiles have be forever lost? Only God knows.

    Today a person must acknowledge there is a sovereign creator God (Adam, Noah, Abraham, Israel ALL knew God) the person must also understand & acknowledge they have sinned against a sovereign creator God's heavenly laws & are in need if a savior. Place their FAITH in Christ's sin atoning death, burial & resurrection.

    No matter the dispensational administration a person needed to have FAITH in God to provide a means of sin redemption/remission/forgiveness/removal/pardon from their sins.

    Jesus the Christ is that provision

    Titus 2:11 For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men

    Romans 10:
    9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

    10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

    Yes. One gospel with 4 accounts; Matthew, Mark, Luke & John.
    One faith, Ephesians 4:5 not many faithS. The Bible teaches one system of faith that is truth (John 17:17) and truth never contradicts itself. No dispensationalism, ie, not many gospels.
