|Galatians 1:15-16 |
15 But when it pleased God, who separated me from my mother's womb, and called me by his grace,
16 To reveal his Son in me, that I might preach him2 among the heathen; I did not immediately confer with flesh and blood.
2 Jesus was revealed in Paul by God so that Paul could preach. This is the qualification of a true minister of Christ: to have the Son revealed in him before preaching. This is the personal experience of the Second Appearance of Jesus Christ, or the Return, or the 2nd Coming. Paul also said: Who has delivered us from the power of darkness, and has translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son. Col 1:13. And: I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. Gal 2:20. So here, Paul testifies to the Revelation (the second appearance) of Jesus Christ in him, being translated into the Kingdom, and Christ living in union with him; all the great promises, experienced by Paul while alive, and witnessed for our benefit.
