S101-3. Did Paul Come in His OWN NAME?

Chapter 3.

A brother in the Lord wrote to me that he believes that Paul could be the one that Jesus warned the Jews that they would believe ANOTHER who will come in his OWN NAME. Let us go ahead and read the PROPHECY of Jesus.

John 5:43.

“I have come in my Father's name, and you receive me not: if ANOTHER shall come in his OWN NAME you will receive him.”

Now, I myself believe that this is a PROPHECY of Muhammad coming in his OWN NAME, but the Jesus Words Only Christians interpret this verse to be referring to the Apostle Paul coming in his OWN NAME.

Simply ask yourself the question, did anyone who did NOT receive Jesus as their Lord and Savior RECEIVE Paul?

NO! Not ONE single person who DENIES Jesus as the Messiah follows the Apostle Paul. But MANY people of the seed of Abraham follow their prophet Muhammad. Please read the study called J-28. COULD ISLAM be the MARK of the BEAST?

But for now, let us go ahead and see what the Bible ITSELF teaches us concerning Paul coming in the name of Jesus and NOT in his OWN name as some Christians CLAIM.

#1. Paul preached and did things for Christ’s SAKE and NOT for his OWN name sake to receive glory and honor from MEN.

Romans 15:30.  

“Now I beseech you, brethren, FOR the Lord Jesus Christ's SAKE, and for the love of the Spirit, that you strive together with me in your prayers to God for me;”

1 Corinthians 4:10.  

“We are fools FOR Christ's SAKE, but you are wise in Christ; we are weak, but you are strong; ye are honorable, but we are despised.”

2 Corinthians 12:10.  

“Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses FOR Christ's SAKE: for when I am weak, then am I strong.”

2 Corinthians 4:5.  

“For we preach NOT OURSELVES, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants FOR Jesus' SAKE.”

2 Corinthians 4:11.  

“For we which live are always delivered unto death FOR Jesus' SAKE, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh.”

Paul did everything FOR the SAKE of our Lord Jesus Christ AND FOR the SAKE of the BODY of Jesus Christ, the church.

2 Timothy 2:9,10.  

“Wherein I suffer trouble, as an evil doer, even unto bonds; but the word of God is not bound. 

10.  Therefore, I endure all things FOR the elect's SAKE, that they may also obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory:” 

Philippians 2:17,18.

“Yea, and if I be offered upon the sacrifice and service of YOUR faith, I joy, and rejoice with you all. 

18.  For the same cause also do you joy, and rejoice with me.”

Philippians 3:8-11.

“Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ

9.  And be found in him, not having my own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith

10.  That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death; 

11.  If by any means I might attain the resurrection of the dead.” 

For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also aboundeth by Christ. 

2Co 1:6  And whether we be afflicted, it is for your consolation and salvation, which is effectual in the enduring of the same sufferings which we also suffer: or whether we be comforted, it is for your consolation and salvation. 

2Co 1:7  And our hope of you is stedfast, knowing, that as ye are partakers of the sufferings, so shall ye be also of the consolation.”

And there are many other passages of Scripture that clearly teach us that Paul did NOT come in his OWN name to seek the glory and honor of MEN.

But rather, Paul taught AGAINST those seeking the glory of MEN.

Please read 1 Corinthians 3:21.  

“Therefore, let NO man glory in MEN. For all things are yours;”

1 Thessalonians 2:6.  

Nor of men sought we glory, neither of you, nor of others, when we might have been burdensome, as the Apostles of Christ.”

Now, the Jesus Words Only Christians use 2 Corinthians 11:16 OUT of its CONTEXT to argue that Paul BOASTS and therefore he is a false teacher.

2 Corinthians 2:16.

“I say again, Let no man think me a fool; if otherwise, yet as a fool receive me, that I may BOAST MYSELF a little.”

Paul is teaching us that when WE are REPROACHED to receive it knowing who we are in Jesus Christ. Let us read the context so that you can see that the others COMPELLED him to boast by NOT receiving him AS and Apostle.

2 Corinthians 2:17-

“That which I speak, I speak it not after the Lord, but as it were foolishly, in this confidence of boasting. (So right up front Paul give an apology for his boasting of himself)

18.  Seeing that many (Unsaved Israelites) glory after the flesh, I will glory ALSO. 

19.  For (Or BECAUSE) you suffer fools gladly, seeing you yourselves are wise. (Here we see the reason for why Paul boasts a little of himself to show us that we have a BETTER reason to boast than those who boast in their keeping of the Law of Moses)

20.  For you suffer, if a man brings you into bondage, if a man devours you, if a man takes of you, if a man exalts himself, if a man smite you on the face. (We keep the Sabbath and YOU do NOT! That is BOASTING in the works of the FLESH for the glory of MEN)

21.  I speak as concerning reproach, as though we had been weak. So then, wherever any is bold, (I speak foolishly,) I am bold also. 

22.  Are they Hebrews? So am I. Are they Israelites? So am I. Are they the seed of Abraham? So am I. 

23.  Are they ministers of Christ? (I speak as a fool) I am more; in labors more abundant, in stripes above measure, in prisons more frequent, in deaths oft. 

24.  Of the Jews five times I received forty stripes save one. 

25.  Thrice was I beaten with rods, once was I stoned, thrice I suffered shipwreck, a night and a day I have been in the deep; 

26.  In journeyings often, in perils of waters, in perils of robbers, in perils by my own countrymen, in perils by the heathen, in perils in the city, in perils in the wilderness, in perils in the sea, in perils among false brethren; 

27.  In weariness and painfulness, in watchings often, in hunger and thirst, in fastings often, in cold and nakedness. 

28.  Beside those things that are without, that which comes upon me daily, the care of all the churches

29.  Who is weak, and I am not weak? Who is offended, and I burn not? 

30.  If I must need glory, I will glory of the things which concern my infirmities. 

31.  The God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which is blessed for evermore, knows that I lie not

32.  In Damascus the governor under Aretas the king kept the city of the Damascenes with a garrison, desirous to apprehend me: 

33.  And through a window in a basket I was let down by the wall, and escaped his hands.”

So Paul is teaching us that when WE are REPROACH for obeying the TRUTH of the TRUE Gospel of Jesus Christ to be WISE and NOT revile back by remembering that we COULD boast if we needed to. In the next chapter we see that SOME did not receive Paul as an Apostle.

Please read 2 Corinthians

“I have become a fool in glorying; YOU have compelled me: for I ought to have been commended of you: for in nothing am I behind the very chiefest apostles, though I be nothing

12.  Truly, the SIGNS of an Apostle were wrought among you in all patience, in signs, and wonders, and mighty deeds

13.  For what is it wherein you were inferior to other churches, except it be that I myself was NOT burdensome to you? Forgive me for that wrong. (In other words, Paul took no money for himself as the other Apostles did, but rather, Paul worked to pay his own expenses)

14.  Behold, the third time I am ready to come to you; and I will NOT be burdensome to you: for I seek not yours, but you: for the children ought not to lay up for the parents, but the parents for the children. 

15.  And I will very gladly spend and be spent for you; though the more abundantly I love you, the less I am loved.”

Now, every Christian is every different church denomination sincerely believe that THEY have the TRUTH and that the OTHER denominations have been deceived. And when other Christians who do NOT believe as THEY do share what the Bible ITSELF teaches, then THEY do NOT like to hear what the Scriptures teach because it does not AGREE with what they sincerely believe is the TRUTH. And thus, they feel OFFENDED or insulted that someone would challenge what they believe. How dare you say that I am not teaching the truth is how many good well meaning Christians react when they are told they are wrong. 

But the TRUTH needs to be told to them even if they get offended at first. They will thank you later, after they eventually see that Jesus told the TRUTH and many were offended at him for simply wanting them to believe the TRUTH so that they might have eternal life. Now some false teachings are not a salvation issue, but SOME false teaching can indeed cause those, who sincerely believe those false teaching to be the truth, to not receive eternal life in the world to come.

And I believe that Christians who sincerely believe that they MUST keep the Law of Moses to the LETTER of the law as it was given to the children of Israel are TEMPTING Almighty God, according to Acts 15:10-24. And to ME, to argue that what Paul and Luke teach CONTRADICT what Jesus teaches is insulting to Jesus who is taught his disciples what to teach.

Jesus said that whatever we do to our brothers we do to Jesus. So to ME, to say that Paul is a FALSE teacher is to say that Jesus taught Paul FALSELY. So I IMPLORE all my readers who DOUBT the teachings of Paul to here the WHOLE MATTER before you judge as Proverbs 18:12,13 WARNS us all to do.

Now, the Jesus Words Only Christians use 2 Timothy 2:8 OUT of its CONTEXT to try to prove that Paul teaches his OWN personal Gospel. We have already read verse 8 OUT of its CONTEXT so now let us read verse 8 left IN its CONTEXT to see WHY Paul says according to MY gospel.

2 Timothy 2:5-10.

“And if a man also strives for masteries, yet he is not crowned, except he strives lawfully

6.  The husbandman who labors must first be partaker of the fruits. 

7.  Consider what I say; and the Lord will give you understanding in all things. 

8.  Remember that Jesus Christ of the seed of David was raised from the dead according to my gospel

9.  Wherein I suffer trouble, as an evil doer, even unto bonds; (In other words, because I teach the TRUTH according to my gospel that Jesus Christ who is of the seed of David was raised from the dead, I suffer PERSECUTION as if I am and evil doer, even being placed in prison for preaching the word of God) but the word of God is not bound. 

10.  Therefore, I endure all things FOR the elect's SAKE, that they may also obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory.” 

So then, WHO persecuted Paul for teaching the TRUTH of the TRUE Gospel of Jesus Christ? It was that CERTAIN SECT of Jews who were WRONGLY teaching ANOTHER gospel that was NOT the same Gospel that Paul and the other Apostles of Jesus preached. In other words, it was ONLY that CERTAIN SECT of Christians that were WRONGLY teaching that Christians MUST be circumcised in the flesh and KEEP the Law of Moses in order to be SAVED. 

It was those Israelite Christians who did not receive Paul as a true Apostle back then. And it is the SAME Law of Moses keeping Christians or the Torah keeping Christians that are compelling Christians to keep the Law of Moses today. And when the Jesus Words ONLY Torah keeping Christians saw that they could NOT RESIST the teachings of Paul by TWISTING his words like OTHER Seventh DAY of the week Sabbath-keeping Christians do, they thought to get RID of Paul altogether. So they searched for verses of Scripture that they could use to DISCREDIT the CHARACTER of Paul any way they can find. And they found a few select verses which they could INTERPRET out of context while IGNORING the REST of God’s word. So in the next chapter we will cover another one of their arguments to try and prove that Paul is a FALSE Apostle.

The Jesus Words Only Christians argue that Saul CHANGED his name to Paul. They argue that since Christians have been DECEIVED to wrongly teach the Almighty God Himself changed the name Saul to Paul at his CONVERSION to Christianity, then that proves that Satan has deceived to whole world that the so-called FAKE Jews in the Bible and in the land of Israel are the TRUE Hebrew Israelite Judahites. For those of you who may have never heard that the word JEW was invented just to DECEIVE the church and the whole world, I will explain a little about how that teaching came to exist in the following chapters.
