Why was Paul in jail?

14 08 2011

Many christians know that Paul was imprisoned for the gospel that he preached. But do we know what gospel he preached? He did not preach Jesus of Nazareth!!!! This may shock you but its true.

Colossians 1:26-27 KJV Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints: (27) To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:

The sad thing is that this gospel of the mystery, “Christ in us”, has not been preached to most believers. We have a huge responsibility, to preach this gospel. God’s final word to mankind.

Gal 1:8-9 KJV But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. (9) As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.

Paul was imprisoned because He preached this “mystery”. He wasn’t in prison just because he preached Jesus of Nazareth. He was in prison because he was preaching this MYSTERY. Christ in us!!!!!!!!

Colossians 4:3 KJV Withal praying also for us, that God would open unto us a door of utterance, to speak the mystery of Christ, for which I am also in bonds:

Ephesians 6:19-20 MKJV And pray for me, that utterance may be given to me, that I may open my mouth boldly to make known the mystery of the gospel, (20) for which I am an ambassador in bonds; so that in it I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.

2Co 5:16 KJV Wherefore henceforth know we no man after the flesh: yea, though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now henceforth know we him no more.

Food for thought?
