Do You Worship the Jesus of Revelation or Paul’s Jesus?
Do you worship the Jesus of Revelation or the Jesus Paul has most Christian’s worshiping? I ask this question because many have been tricked into worship another Christ and another gospel. The Christ they worship is a misinterpretation of the real Messiah (John 1:41).
Why do I say Paul’s Christ? I say this because Paul is the leading author of the New Testament. He has more books attributed to him than anyone else. The foundation of the doctrine of Christianity is based primarily on the books of Paul rather than the words of Jesus. Let’s take a look.
In the Gospel of Matthew 10:5-6, Jesus says to his disciples “These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into [any] city of the Samaritans enter ye not: But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.” This is what Jesus told his disciples. His message was not for the “Gentiles” yet Paul convinces people that Jesus told him to take his message to the gentiles. (Note: the Greek word for gentile is ethnos from which the word ethnic comes from.)
Why do I have a problem with Paul? This is because the Paul’s claim to his ministry was his supposed meeting of Jesus on his way to Damascus. He tells this story 3 different times in the book of Acts. Each time he tells his story he gives a different version of the same story. If someone tells you three different version of a story, you would not view this person as credible. Read Acts chapters 9, 22, and 26 for yourself and you will see what I am talking about.
The point of the matter is that when it comes to the Jesus of Revelation, we have strayed far away from his teachings and adopted the teachings of those who have intentionally taken us away from Jesus the Messiah and have us worshiping their Christ. We have to get back to the study of the scriptures and find the real Messiah, not the fake one.
