Paul, also known as Saul of Tarsus [Acts 9:11], or Sha’ul in Hebrew, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin [Romans 11:1], is an Israelite who lived amongst the lost sheep of Israel. Paul’s writings are the most commonly misused and misunderstood pieces of Scripture in the entire Bible.
It is important to know that Paul studied at the feet of Gamaliel [Acts 22:3] which requires him to have memorized the entire Torah. This and the fact Paul repented and turned to Yeshua (Jesus), made him qualified for the job of bringing back the lost sheep of Israel. Ask God for understanding; let the Holy Spirit (Ruach Hako’desh) minister unto you as Paul’s writings can be difficult to understand by man’s reasoning alone.
God knew that people would be deceived by false prophets who preach licentiousness, so no matter how complex Paul’s teachings of the Gospel are, we can be assured of these things:
Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid: yea, we establish the law. Romans 3:31.
What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein? Romans 6:1-2.
What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid. Romans 6:15
What shall we say then? Is the law sin? God forbid. Nay, I had not known sin, but by the law: for I had not known lust, except the law had said, Thou shalt not covet. Romans 7:7
But if, while we seek to be justified by Christ, we ourselves also are found sinners, is therefore Christ the minister of sin? God forbid. Galatians 2:17
Remember always, Yeshua is Lord!
Trust in him, follow him, and you will have eternal life.
