It's more likely God was choosing the lowest man to show his power. Paul was transformed. I do agree that he had every motive, but if God can use
Paul, he can use me or you as well. You are correct. Paul had every reason to undermine the gospel. The defining factor is the rightly divided
truth he proclaims. The nature of the mystery of God reveals itself in reflection. When you see the mirror clearly, simply choose the side that
reflects the positive. In most cases, you don't need to think one is right and the other is wrong. Paradox can always be resolved by what is not
seen. Both sides of the argument are likely correct to an extent. A higher axiom will show you why.
For instance: Suppose a train engineer and a friend argue about the train whistle changing pitch. The engineer says it does not change. This is
because he is closest to the whistle and travels with the sound. The friend is on his porch and hears the moving train pass by. For him, the pitch
changes. The excluded middle shows the truth to both of the ones that are arguing about the whistle. The Doppler Effect shows why both are true.
Answer a few questions: Does God love us more than we can love each other? Is God's will done? Can mankind undermine God's will apart from God
allowing it? The facts surrounding Paul do not matter if we first understand that God's will is done. He already knows the end from the beginning.
We are simply riding that wave of the story in time. God has already seen it all. He has already said, "It is good."
The words of Paul are central to the story of the larger picture we see. The Bible ends in 22 letters, mostly written by Paul. There is great
significance in the fact that 22 letters end the word. The same truth applies for Psalm 111-112 being an acrostic of the 22 letters of the Hebrew
language. Psalm 113 -118 (2012.9 - 2018.9) are then framed by 119, which is again an acrostic of the 22 letters. This is known as the Hallel Psalms.
The structure of the Bible includes a symmetry that involves Paul.
To say that God lost control of his message at the very time it was most critical is the reflecting point where you choose the side that says God is
in control. His will is done and someone like Saul could not have derailed this. Are you implying that God lost control of events? This is the
excluded middle that you need to know the truth.
When Issac was offered up as a sacrifice, he was likely 33 years old. If you want a true picture of the events that Issac foreshadows, return to
Genesis 22. There is no mistake this is the 22nd chapter of the Bible. If you are going to find the answer, simply read the Genesis prophecy. The
entire book sums up the entire story of mankind, beginning to end. Joseph and the 7 years famine is our coming tribulation. Locate Christ and Paul
in Genesis and you might just find the facts there. I would be interested to know if you do.
Who knows. Maybe you are right. You won't find it in the New Testament until you consult the old. It will be right there where God told us it was
going to happen. My best guess is Genesis 22 forward.
By the way, you won't find the answer unless you consult Paul in Hebrews 9-10. He explains it to you. This is your evidence that Genesis and Paul
agree. He also agrees with Christ.
