“And I was advancing in Judaism beyond many of my own age among my people, so extremely zealous was I for the traditions of my fathers. Galatians 1:15 But when he who had set me apart before I was born, and who called me by his grace, was pleased to reveal his Son to me, in order that I might preach him among the Gentiles, I did not immediately consult with anyone; Galatians 1:17 nor did I go up to Jerusalem to those who were apostles before me, but I went away into Arabia, and returned again to Damascus.”

(Galatians 1:14–17 ESV)

Is Paul among the Prophets?

I had borrowed that phrase from Samuel when King Saul was seen among the prophetic community!!

Is Paul a Prophet?  Paul already told us that his message was one that he received as a revelation, and this revelation is Jesus.

 

Jesus is the Gospel.

 

Paul now recognised his formal way of life, not with a sense of guilt but now with an immense sense of gratitude. Paul, the messenger of the Gospel, now a preacher of the Gospel, traces his calling to the time before he was born. He recognises the sovereignty of God, and therefore he, speaks about his purpose and mission with freedom.

Paul says that his calling was an act of God’s grace, but he was set apart be he was born.

This is the language of the prophets of old, this is Jeremiah when he was called by the Lord to become a prophet.

““Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I appointed you a prophet to the nations.””

(Jeremiah 1:5 ESV)

There is now no doubt and no arguments about the authenticity of Paul the Apostle, Preacher and now as a Prophet. With a mission and a purpose to call the nations to experience, believe and accept the Gospel.

I want you to know that we all have been called before we were born, that your name was whispered in heaven and you came to be. God knew you in the secret place, and he was pleased. This simple and powerful truth is hidden in the Gospel and revolved to us only when we accept the Gospel, this leads us to gratitude.
