It is true as well as surprising to many to know that in Paul's ministry we have the completion of the Word of God (Col. 1:2525Whereof I am made a minister, according to the dispensation of God which is given to me for you, to fulfil the word of God; (Colossians 1:25)). All the counsels of God which center in His beloved Son have been revealed for our spiritual intelligence. There are five scriptures which show distinctly that Paul's ministry was by special revelation: Gal. 1:1212For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ. (Galatians 1:12) Thess. 4:15; Eph. 3:33How that by revelation he made known unto me the mystery; (as I wrote afore in few words, (Ephesians 3:3) Cor. 11:23 and 15:51. In them we have the gospel of the grace of God, the rapture, the mystery, the supper, and the resurrection from among the dead, all declaring the new position and portion of believers on this side of the cross, which are heavenly.
