1 Corinthians 2, Part 6

Paul’s Gospel Is NOW

By Tammy Lacock

“NOW [emphasis added] we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.” (1 Cor. 2:12, KJV)

Warren Litzman continues to emphasize the word NOW in 1 Corinthians 2:12, stating that the apostle Paul’s use of the word NOW refers to a present message. It was a present message at the time of Paul’s writings and continues to be a present message for us. The message is clear, that when we believe in Christ Jesus as our Savior, in that moment we receive “the Spirit which is of God,” that we “might know the things that are freely given to us of God.” NOW we are sons and daughters of our Heavenly Father. Christ is available to us NOW because he is our new life. The knowledge of Him is also available to us NOW through the work of the Holy Spirit. 

In the Old Testament, God was speaking to the people of that day. NOW, through Paul’s epistles, God is speaking to us. God raised up only Paul to deliver the new gospel of Christ, in this new dispensation of grace that is NOW. We need only to take the time to read Paul’s epistles and we too will come to the revelation that, as believers, Christ NOW lives in us. We are joined together as one spirit, “the Spirit which is of God.” 

This dispensation of grace we are NOW living in is the last dispensation before the rapture. Paul is the last preacher. Let us NOW be followers of Paul, as he is of Christ, and pass this message of Christ IN us to all four corners of the earth.

About the Podcast

Loving the Christ-life!
Warren Litzman teaches life in Christ, the Christ-life, the gospel of grace taught by Apostle Paul..
Warren Litzman teaches the Christ-life, the liberating life available when the born-again believer realizes the Spirit of Christ living within is his/her only righteousness and only life. This gospel of grace taught by Paul frees us from sin and law, shifting our focus from self to Christ, relieving us from stressing over perfecting self by works and the guilt and condemnation that follows our inevitable failure at self-righteousness. It leads us into a much more personal, intimate relationship with our heavenly Father as born-again children of God, joint-heirs with Christ.
