Phil 3:12-14  "Not that I have already obtained, or have already been made perfect; but I press on, if also I may lay hold of that for which I was laid hold of by Christ Jesus.  (13)  Brothers, I do not count myself to have laid hold; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forward to those things which are ahead,  (14)  I press toward the goal for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus."

"That I may know Him, and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death, if by any means, I may attain to the resurrection from the dead." (Phil 3:10-11)

One thing is certain: Paul didn't take his salvation for granted, or not continue to work out his salvation with fear and trembling.

"And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith:" (Phil 3:9, KJV)

Today on the Gospelstudy podcast, we look at the Apostle Paul, and how he threw it all away, in exchange of the surpassing worth of knowing Jesus Christ!

Could you do that? Have you done that?

And then he said that he wanted to be "found in Him."

Taken from Revelation 1:6-7

 To Him who loves us and who washed us from our sins in His own blood, 6 ​and He made us kings and priests to His God and Father, to Him be the glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen. 7 ​Behold, He is coming with the clouds, and every eye will see Him, and those who pierced Him. And all the tribes of the earth will wail because of Him. Even so, Amen!  

In today's message, we focus on the response of the world at the return of the Lord Jesus Christ (1:7). Interestingly, they WAIL, or mourn, instead of rejoice. We will look at that, as well as the great love of God, and the blood of Jesus Christ, and the importance of the blood!

Today on the Gospelstudy podcast, we see the Apostle Paul totally abolishing the Old Testament ceremonial law, and replaces it with the death of Jesus Christ on the cross, and He being made a curse for us. Join us!

Gal 5:2-4 "Indeed I, Paul, say to you that if you become circumcised, Christ will profit you nothing.  (3)  And I testify again to every man who becomes circumcised that he is a debtor to keep the whole law.  (4)  You have become estranged from Christ, you who are justified by law; you have fallen from grace."

Jesus said, "It was the same as happened in the days of Lot: they were eating, they were drinking, they were buying, they were selling, they were planting, they were building;  (29)  but on the day that Lot went out from Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed them all. (Luke 17:28-29).

Today on the Gospelstudy podcast, we go back to Genesis 19, and we discover what the real sin was in Sodom, which caused God to destroy the city, and just about all of its inhabitants: Homosexuals.

Jesus said that just as it was in the days of Lot, so will it be when He returns.

How was it in the days of Lot? The town was overrun by homosexuals, who bullied the righteous Lot, and told him to stop judging them. Sounds alot like today.

Today on the Gospelstudy podcast, we see believers at the end of the age, and apparently before the rapture, looking behind every tree for the Christ!

23 “Then if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Christ!’ or ‘There!’ do not believe it. 24 For false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. 26 “Therefore if they say to you, ‘Look, He is in the desert!’ do not go out; or ‘Look, He is in the inner rooms!’ do not believe it.

Today on the Gospelstudy podcast, we look at how Abraham was saved, and see that he was accepted by God the same way that we are--by faith! Join us!

Gal 3:6-9  Just as Abraham "believed God, and it was accounted to him as righteousness."  (7)  Know therefore that those who are of faith, these are sons of Abraham.  (8)  And the Scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, preached the gospel beforehand to Abraham, saying that, "In you all the nations shall be blessed."  (9)  Therefore those who are of faith are blessed with believing Abraham.
