071917W-The Mystery of the Gospel.mp3

Posted on 24 Jul 2017, Pastor: Dr Gregg Nash


 Understanding that Paul is the Apostle to the Gentiles – Romans 11:13

Jesus started the church and used the Apostle Paul to administrate it.

The LORD Jesus gave Paul things He did not give to the other disciples – Galatians 1:18  &  Ephesians 3:1-11

As Moses received the doctrines of Judaism under the kingdom of Heaven

Paul received the doctrines of Christianity under the kingdom of God.

Pauline Epistles = Romans to Philemon

People who neglect or mishandle the Pauline Epistles – wrest the Scriptures to their own destruction

1 Corinthians 4:1-2

Mystery: A truth hidden up to this point, but now revealed.

  1. Mystery of THE FAITH I Timothy 3:9 Sometimes called “The 1st Principles” – Hebrews 6:1-2

A Book to tell about it (The KJB)    The Doctrine of the Bible      Psalms 138:2     Psalms 12:6-7

A Message (The Doctrine of Christ)  II John 9

Virgin Birth  Sinless Life  Vicarious Death  Bodily Resurrection  Ascension to Heaven

A Plan

The Doctrine of Salvation  –  The death of the innocent pays for the offence of the guilty

An Institution

The Doctrine of the Church

The Local New Testament Baptist Church  –  Not the invisible church.

A Method

The Doctrine of Preaching and Soul Winning

A Power to Spread the Message   (The Doctrine of the Holy Spirit)


  1. Mystery of the KINGDOM OF HEAVEN Matthew 13:11.

The Kingdom of Heaven is a literal, physical kingdom dealing with Israel.

The Kingdom of God is an invisible kingdom    Luke 17:20 and Romans 14:17


  1. Mystery of GODLINESS I Timothy 3:16.

God was manifest in the flesh, means that Christ, as God, came as a man.

The Deity of Christ      Matthew 1:23  1 John 5:7     Emmanuel – God with us      Isaiah 7:14 & 9:6


  1. Mystery of the INDWELLING CHRIST. Colossians 1:24-29.

Once Christ is IN YOU then God describes you as IN CHRIST

When you get saved you are put IN CHRIST.       You are made a part of His BODY

Positionally you are IN CHRIST IN HEAVEN

Practically you are to attend the local church down here on Earth

The local NT Baptist Church is the Body of Christ on Earth – The expression of Jesus Christ on this earth until He raptures all believers out before the Tribulation.


  1. Mystery of the GOSPEL

Ephesians 6:19; Romans 16:25.


Christ offers forgiveness and justification to those who believe and call on Christ to save them.

Acts 15:11-12                     Galatians 3:7-10

Salvation has been by grace through faith but there was a SYSTEM of JUDAISM in place also.

GOSPEL – Good News

The main ingredient of the Gospel is FAITH in the MESSIAH

The death of the innocent pays for the sin of the guilty


In the Progression of the Gospels for the ages

All of the Gospels of the Old Testament point toward and are a shadow of Calvary

ADAM                       Genesis 3:15

The death of the innocent pays for the sin of the guilty

Adam – Abel – Seth – Enoch – Noah

Abraham – Blessed by faith  Jews

Genesis 12:1-3    Romans 4:1-5    Genesis 22:1-8     Hebrews 11:17-19

Gospel During Judaism   Jews

There was a system in place called Judaism

Hebrews 3:15-4:2     Numbers 21:4-9    John 3:14-15

Look at how the LORD describes it in the Psalms

Psalms 116:12-13

Jesus as the Messiah (Preached by John)   Jews

The Lamb                    They could not put everything that Jesus would do together – Matt. 28:17; Mark 16:13-14; 1 Peter 1:9-12

John 1:25-29

Gospel of the Kingdom (Preached by Jesus)    Jews

There is only 1 Kingdom and that is the Millennial Kingdom when Jesus comes to reign for 1,000 years.

Matthew 4:17    Matthew 4:23    Matthew 9:35

Look at what Jesus told the disciples to say when they went out soul winning

Matthew 10:5-8

Look what Jesus told people before He died on the cross.

Luke 7:48-50   Luke 18:38-42

They had to trust WHO He was – He had not died on the cross yet       John 8:24

The Gospel Of Christ (Revealed to and preached by Paul)  Jews and Gentiles

God uses Paul to pen the words “MY GOSPEL” 3x        Romans 2:16  Romans 16:25    2 Timothy 2:8

1 Corinthians 15:1-4    Romans 1:16    Romans 3:24-25

What God revealed to the Apostle Paul is what we are to be preaching today

Galatians 1:8-9     Galatians 1:11-12     Galatians 2:2


You have to believe more than just Jesus Christ is the Messiah – God in the flesh

If you know who Jesus is and don’t trust what He did, you will die and go to hell.


The Everlasting Gospel (Preached by an Angel during the last half of the Tribulation)

Revelation 14:6-7

No one responds to this gospel – Revelation 16:9-11

Those saved during the Tribulation period will be by the 144,000 male, virgin, Jewish evangelists – Revelation 7 & 14

When churches say, “We preach the everlasting gospel” they mean that the salvation that is offered by the LORD Jesus Christ because of His death, burial, and resurrection is eternal.

They don’t literally preach the everlasting gospel.
