Gospel of 1 Corinthians 15:1-4
Acts 16:30 is no different then Peter telling JEWS to repent. Jews today need to repenting of rejecting Jesus and changing their mind. And preaching to 1 person, is different than preaching to a crowd.

Acts 16: 29 Then (he - singular) called for a light, and sprang in, and came trembling, and fell down before Paul and Silas, 30 And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved? 31 And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house. And they spake unto him the word of the Lord, and to all that were in his house.33 And he took them the same hour of the night, and washed their stripes, and was baptized, he and all his, straightway.

Acts 2 Peter is speaking to thousands there for Pentecost. Acts 16, Paul is speaking to ONE PERSON, the jailer.

Peter uses REPENT meaning to change their minds about Jesus.

Even if EVERY ONE OF YOU did repent and believe Jesus is the Son of God, the Kingdom to be restored to Israel still would not have happened, we now know is sometime AFTER 1948. And even then ALL ISRAEL WILL NOT REPENT THEN EITHER. Israel was still under Roman rule at Pentecost. If what you teach came to pass and all Israel repented, there would be NO CHURCH. it would have gone into the 1000 year reign, Jesus making a U turn back, taking the throne of David. And half the prophecy in the Old Test and the 4 Gospels would never come to pass... MATT 5:18

Why Does God Punish Us
So Joseph, do you have a faith or are you an agnostic or atheist? Maybe we should start there. You do seem to be utilizing some scripture. But the verses you pulled out here are what Calvinists run to when arguing why they are the elect and everyone else is going to hell. So I'll be up front I'm not a Calvinist, and also believe those verses aren't talking about salvation. Those verses if read correctly are referring to God's ELECT ISRAEL, for service.

God has mercy on everyone who calls upon the name of the Lord. And God's mercy was demonstrated when He gave His only begotten son to die in you place so you can have eternal life. Sounds like an AWESOME GOD TO ME.

Gospel of 1 Corinthians 15:1-4
This Jesus died for my sin, and rose again for my justification.

Isaiah 53:.10 Yet it pleased the Lord to bruise him, he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the Lord shall prosper in his hand. 11 He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many, for he shall bear their iniquities. 12 Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong, because he hath poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors, and he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.

Why Does God Punish Us
Yes GOD ALLOWED, also known as FREE WILL. I don't see God creating a bunch of robots, whether Angels or man an anything amazing. And artificial love and worship is the epitome of a narcissis.

God created with the free will to freely choose Life or Death. He didn't force sin on anyone, and isn't forcing salvation on anyone. And He didn't create man in a broken state. He created Adam and Eve perfect. They chose to do what God said not to do. You can't blame God for their choice.

But RIGHT THEN God promised a redeemer. AWESOME.

Gospels Of Circumcision
And God knew they would before the foundation of the World. But regardless God has made Him BOTH LORD AND CHRIST. So end of dividing here.

The preaching OF THE CROSS is what Scientology does not do, or Hindu, or Islam. And Jews still under the Law. And Gentiles under the law. And Gnostics and many false religions around 2000+ years ago.

But the preaching of the CROSS is the preaching of Jesus death and resurrection regardless.

We see in Acts 1 the salvation OF INDIVIDUAL JEWS , Not the salvation and restoration of THE NATION. There was no NATION to restore. All Israel had not been brought back to the Land God gave them. That Prophecy, Isaiah 14, and Zechariah 12-14 had not happened YET.

Gospel of 1 Corinthians 15:1-4
OH my goodness, Michael_e, are all Gentiles in your denomination so unlearned in the scriptures?

Ok, The Apostles just testified of Jesus death and resurrection, saying they were EYE WITNESSES TO HIS RESURRECTION. The Eunuch starts reading Isaiah 53, ABOUT JESUS, About his sufferings, and how our sin was laid on him. THAT IS THE GOSPEL OF THE CROSS. Philip led him more fully into the preaching OF THE CROSS, and another Gentile was saved.

Why would you exclude Jews from salvation, because of some twisted idea it's another Gospel while Jews are leading Gentiles to the same salvation of what? Them being excluded too, because WHY? If they weren't responsible for Jesus crucifixion , why were they excluded from the BOC?

Church Today In Apostasy
David's thinking would be ....if Jesus redeemed us from sin and death, then if we can't sin any longer, we certainly can't die any longer either. He can't explain the difference. He says we can't sin, but we can die. Hummm. Now he's calling God a liar OR he just doesn't understand scripture.

So, yes please do explain how we do die, if Jesus said we can't die?

How old are you David? Are you saying you also can't die? How do you separate the two. Jesus didn't .

Gospels Of Circumcision
Well Jesus had to be crucified and someone had to do it. It took more than a pricked finger for blood. But that was all according to Gods Will, FORORDAINED before the foundation of the world. But that did not eliminate The Jews from salvation, YIKES. Jesus said on the cross, "Father forgive them for they know not what they do." So if Gentiles had been the ones who crucified the Lord, should they have been EXCLUDED because it would be bad news to them God used them to fulfill His will and purpose?

Michael_e, that is the most ignorant ,anti_semitic statement you have made so far. It's that mindset where Martin Luther, along with pogrom's , and persecution of Jews started. It's disgusting.

What Is Rightly Dividing The Word
The very same death and resurrection Peter preached, prophecied, is the very same death and resurrection Paul states in 1 Corinthians 15:1-4. Same Gospel same way of salvation. OT Saints looked forward to that which was prophesied and their faith was in the Same promise as ours looking back, THAT JESUS CHRIST DIED FOR OUR SIN. Same Jesus, same death and resurrection resulting in the same outcome ROMANS 10. THAT THE LAW COULD NEVER SAVE, nor did scripture ever say it could.

Peter states in 2 Peter 1 we are partakers of HIS DIVINE NATURE, aka CHRIST IN YOU. AND THAT WE SHARE THE SAME GRACE. Earthly Israel was never promised to partake of HIS, CHRIST'S Divine nature. Only the CHURCH is promised this, and to share in His Glory. John 17.

What Is Rightly Dividing The Word
We need to judge fairly. Paul according to Luke's writing of Acts never once uses the word CROSS OR MYSTERY. And Paul didn't write his first epistle almost 10+ years after his salvation. It was Galatians. THE CROSS is used, but the word MYSTERY is not. The theme of THE CROSS in Galatians is CHRIST IN YOU, Gal 2:20-21. FORMING CHRIST IN THEM AGAIN. It being about FAITH. Gal 3. The same FAITH Peter preached in Acts 2 re receiving The Holy Spirit.

Gospel of 1 Corinthians 15:1-4
There is no forgivness of sin or remission of sin without the blood of Jesus Christ. Even John the Baptist said "BEHOLD THE LAMB OF GOD WHO TAKES AWAY THE SIN OF THE WORLD."

The whole point of animal sacrifice pointed to Jesus Christ Hebrews 10. That was done BY FAITH.

And the Tabernacle in the wilderness was built after a pattern IN HEAVEN.

When Jesus died on the cross, the veil in the temple was rent, signifying the way into the Holy of Holies had been opened. Not just for Jews but for THE WHOLE WORLD.

Michael_e might want to put down Bullinger and actually STUDY THE OT, rightly dividing truth.

What Is Rightly Dividing The Word
Michael_e, Actually neither did Paul as we see when Paul got saved, all he did at first is go into the Temple and preach that Jesus is the Christ. That Jesus is the Messiah they were looking for.

He spent the first 3 years on the back side of a mountain studying. So even Paul did not INSTANTLY understand or preach THE MYSTERY. If he had Luke would have clearly recorded that in Acts.

You've only imagined a new gospel in Acts 13. And as Phil states here, ONE FAITH, ONE SPIRIT ETC. PAUL WAS CLEARLY SAYING THERE WERE NOT TWO.

Church Today In Apostasy
So David , does this mean you are a Christian who has not been born Again and not saved yet? I've never heard of such a person.

OR, Are you a robot? So the question is, Christians WON'T SIN OR CAN'T SIN?

Now there is also a crowd who believe a Christian can lose their salvation if they sin.

So let's take King David. Was he saved when he became King? And then he sinned, and repented asking forgivness. So was he RESAVED or did God make David King before he wasn't saved? Did RIGHTEOUS NOAH lose his salvation when he got drunk? Did Moses lose his salvation when he hit the rock in anger, where God didn't allow him into the promise land?

Gospel of 1 Corinthians 15:1-4
Peter preached to Cornelius a gentile. Cornelius was not put under Kingdom Law. No one from Acts 1 was. Kingdom law is to cut off your hand or poke out your eye if it offends in order to enter in. That will come AFTER Jesus builds His Church, which began in Acts 1. No supporting NT Scripture calls the earthly kingdom THE CHURCH. No one was being baptized INTO PETER, as OT us this type saying they were baptized into Moses .

Study to show yourself approved of God RIGHTLY DIVIDING THE WORD OF TRUTH PLEASE.

Are all Gentiles ignorant of these things. Christian Jews are not. Seeing Bullinger died before 1948, when Israel became a Nation, shows he just didn't get it. I wonder if he would have changed his position.

What Is Rightly Dividing The Word
Jesus began building His Church at the beginning of Acts. He clarified to the Apostles that only the Father knew when the KINGDOM RESTORED TO ISRAEL would be. Just as Jesus also said in Matthew 24-25. SAME KINGDOM.

Jesus gave a glimpse in the 4 Gospels saying MY KINGDOM IS NOT OF THIS WORLD. So we do have 2 Kingdoms here, a heavenly one, and an earthly one. The earthly one is referred to in Matthew as The Kingdom of Heaven defined as "on earth as it is in heaven"

michael_e has some things correct re THE CHURCH is not the NATION OF ISRAEL. But also remember the promises TO THE NATION , it must first become a NATION. That didn't happen until 1948. It didn't happen in Acts 1-13. A serious bible student would know this.

Also David is teaching a form of no free will. He believes once you've received the Holy Spirit WALLA, you've become a robot. But Paul also explains in Galatians that the flesh wars against the Spirit and the Spirit against the flesh . This is what is called Spiritual warfare. And believe me it takes every bit of your will to line with God's will to be an overcomer. Look at 1 st John AGAIN,RE: young men, Those who have MATURED have overcome the evil one. Babies will fall and stumble, and ABBA DADDY picks us up, dusts us off gives us a big hug and we try again.

This part of Christianity is foreign to David. If it wasn't he'd know we don't become instantly sinless the moment we receive the Holy Spirit.

Church Today In Apostasy
David, ask yourself "WHY DO I SIN?" We've been taught the Law of Christ is the fruit of the Spirit. All the law is fulfilled in the verse to LOVE. Love, is the fruit of the spirit. Gentleness, kindness long-suffering FAITH, Mercy etc. Against such there is no law. Gal 5:22-25. Also 1 Corinthians 13, the great chapter explaining our behaviour when we LOVE.

The problem David is you have failed to see SIN is not just what the Law lists. Your temper tantrums and false accusations are SIN. You don't resemble 1 Cor 13 at all. Or obeyed Gal 5:22-25.

So until then , you are out of line, out of truth, out of place insisting you are sinless. Even 1 John states this over and over. Read the WHOLE EPISTLE. stop cherry picking.

Gospels Of Circumcision
The WRATH OF GOD will be poured out during the Great Tribulation. It's all there in Revelation and Matthew 24-25. So no, God was not ready to pour out His wrath right then until Paul saved the day. All that is something Michael_e or Hyper Disp's just made up to shovel hogwash down the throats of those not yet grounded in Scripture. That all will happen AFTER THE CHURCH ( mystery) IS COMPLETE Revelation 10:7. Just exactly how and in God's timing.

The moon did not turn to blood, no one had to run to the mountains and hide. Etc. So no, God's wrath tells us explicitly what will happen right before Jesus comes to SET UP HIS KINGDOM ON EARTH.
And WHEN God does begin this time, MAN will not be able to stop it.
