What is the gospel of Christ?

20 10 2012

2Jn 1:9-11 MKJV  Everyone transgressing and not abiding in the doctrine of Christ does not have God. He who abides in the doctrine of Christ, he has both the Father and the Son.  (10)  If anyone comes to you and does not bring this doctrine, do not receive him into your house, nor speak a greeting to him.  (11)  For he who speaks a greeting to him is partaker of his evil deeds.

Rom 16:25-26 MKJV  Now to Him who is able to establish you according to my gospel, and the preaching of Jesus Christ according to the revelation of the mystery, having been unvoiced during eternal times;  (26)  but now has been made plain, and by the prophetic Scriptures, according to the commandment of the everlasting God, made known to all nations for the obedience of faith;

2Th 1:8 MKJV  in flaming fire taking vengeance on those who do not know God and who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ,

Gal 1:6-16 MKJV  I marvel that you so soon are being moved away from Him who called you into the grace of Christ, to another gospel,  (7)  which is not another, but some are troubling you, and desiring to pervert the gospel of Christ.  (8)  But even if we or an angel from Heaven preach a gospel to you beside what we preached to you, let him be accursed.  (9)  As we said before, and now I say again, If anyone preaches a gospel to you beside what you have received, let him be accursed.  (10)  For now do I persuade men, or God? Or do I seek to please men? For if I yet pleased men, I would not be a servant of Christ.  (11)  And, brothers, I make known to you the gospel which was preached by me, that it is not according to man.  (12)  For I did not receive it from man, nor was I taught it except by a revelation of Jesus Christ.  (13)  For you heard my manner of life when I was in Judaism, that I persecuted the church of God with surpassing zeal, and ravaged it.  (14)  And I progressed in Judaism beyond many contemporaries in my race, being much more a zealot of the traditions of my fathers.  (15)  But when it pleased God, who separated me from my mother’s womb, and having called me by His grace,  (16)  to reveal His Son in me so that I might preach Him among the nations, immediately I did not confer with flesh and blood;

Col 1:24-29 MKJV  who now rejoice in my sufferings on your behalf, and I fill up the things lacking of the afflictions of Christ in my flesh, on behalf of His body, which is the church;  (25)  of which I became a minister, according to the administration of God given to me for you, to fulfill the Word of God;  (26)  the mystery which has been hidden from ages and from generations, but now has been revealed to His saints.  (27)  For to them God would make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the nations, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory,  (28)  whom we preach, warning every man and teaching every man in all wisdom, so that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus.  (29)  For which I also labor, striving according to the working of Him who works in me in power.

Col 2:1-4 MKJV  For I want you to know what a great conflict I have for you and those at Laodicea, and for as many as have not seen my face in the flesh,  (2)  that their hearts might be comforted, being knit together in love, and to all riches of the full assurance of the understanding, to the full knowledge of the mystery of God, and of the Father, and of Christ;  (3)  in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.  (4)  And I say this that not anyone should beguile you with enticing words.

Col 4:2-4 MKJV  Continue in prayer and watch in it with thanksgiving,  (3)  praying together about us also, that God may open to us a door of the Word, to speak the mystery of Christ, for which I also have been bound,  (4)  that I may make it clear, as I ought to speak.

Eph 3:1-21 MKJV  For this cause, I, Paul, am the prisoner of Jesus Christ for you nations,  (2)  if you have heard of the dispensation of the grace of God which is given to me toward you,  (3)  that by revelation He made known to me the mystery (as I wrote before in few words,  (4)  by which, when you read, you may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ)  (5)  which in other ages was not made known to the sons of men, as it is now revealed to His holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit,  (6)  that the nations should be fellow heirs, and of the same body, and partaker of His promise in Christ through the gospel.  (7)  Of this gospel I was made a minister, according to the gift of the grace of God given to me by the effectual working of His power.  (8)  This grace is given to me (who am less than the least of all saints) to preach the gospel of the unsearchable riches of Christ among the nations,  (9)  and to bring to light what is the fellowship of the mystery which from eternity has been hidden in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ;  (10)  so that now to the rulers and powers in the heavenlies might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God,  (11)  according to the eternal purpose which He purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord;  (12)  in whom we have boldness and access with confidence through His faith.  (13)  For this reason I desire that you faint not at my tribulations for you, which is your glory.  (14)  For this cause I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,  (15)  of whom the whole family in Heaven and earth is named,  (16)  that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might by His Spirit in the inner man;  (17)  that Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love,  (18)  may be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth and length and depth and height,  (19)  and to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge, that you might be filled with all the fullness of God.  (20)  Now to Him who is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us,  (21)  to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, forever. Amen.

Eph 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.
