CHAPTER 1
THE LIGHT IS NOW SHINING IN THE GENTILES

Saint Paul declared his message that circumcision availed nothing, which is now troubling those opposed to Moses’ Law.
2.         Peter received a ministry to them that were given the Laws. Moses collected the Laws of God as an Angel. Thus, as many as were given the Law—if any man is offending the Law, it must be a Jew because to him the Law was given.
3.         To the Gentiles, St. Paul collected no Law at all, St. Paul as an angel was sent to the Gentiles as his commission.
4.         The Voice that spoke to him never gave him any slate containing Law but, he was to be a minister to the Gentiles, to open their eyes.
5.         Please, take note because I want to take you back a little.
6.         Now, this man teaches the Laws of Moses and enforces it, being a Jew. It pleased the Jews. St. Paul was once a Jew and a staunch advocate of the Law.
7.         Let me show you something about this man called Paul.
8.         Acts of the Apostles chapter 22 verse 1 through 3: Men, brethren, and fathers, hear ye my defence which I make now unto you.  
9.         (And when they heard that he spake in the Hebrew tongue to them, they kept the more silence: and he saith.
10.     I am verily a man which am a Jew, born in Tarsus, a city in Cilicia, yet brought up in this city at the feet of Gamaliel, and taught according to the perfect manner of the law of the fathers, and was zealous toward God, as ye all are this day.
11.     And I persecuted this way unto the death, binding and delivering into prisons both men and women.” (KJV).
12.     Brothers and fathers, listen to me as I offer my defense. 
13.     (When they heard him speaking in Hebrew, the silence was even greater.)
14.     Am a Jew, he said, "born in Tarsus, a city in Cilicia, but educated here in Jerusalem under Gamaliel, at whose feet I learned to follow our Jewish laws and customs very carefully. I became very anxious to honor God in everything I did, just as you have tried to do today.
15.     And I persecuted the Christians, hounding them to death, binding and delivering both men and women to prison.” (LB).
16.     Just as you have tried to do today. Whatever you are doing today was what I did before.
17.     Verse 19: “And I said, Lord, they know that I imprisoned and beat in every synagogue them that believed on thee.” (KJV).
18.     “But Lord,' I argued, `they certainly know that I imprisoned and beat those in every synagogue who believed on you.” (LB).
19.     He was now talking to Jesus when he heard the Voice: “I am Jesus Christ whom thou persecuteth.” That was the encounter between Paul and Jesus. Paul is referring to Christ now.
20.     Verse 20 through 21: And when the blood of thy martyr Stephen was shed, I also was standing by, and consenting unto his death, and kept the raiment of them that slew him.
21.     And he said unto me, Depart: for I will send thee far hence unto the Gentiles.” (KJV).
22.     “And when your witness Stephen was killed, I was standing there agreeing--keeping the coats they laid aside as they stoned him.'
23.      But God said to me, `Leave Jerusalem, for I will send you far away to the Gentiles!(LB).
24.     Jerusalem, the city trying to please God by obeying Moses’ Laws.
25.     “Leave from Jerusalem,” did God say, “After, go back to Jerusalem?” Did God say, “After some days, after some years, go back to Peter and come and confer with him?” “Find out whatever he will tell the Jews,” any instruction like that!
26.     The Voice said, “Away from Jerusalem,” like God commanded Abraham to leave his own country to a city He was going to show him. Did He ask him to go back after? Even the command was so simple that Abraham did not permit Isaac to go back to Mesopotamia—I mean Babylon or Iraq.
27.     How many know that Babylon is Iraq?
28.     Acts of the Apostles chapter 7 verse 2: And he said, Men, brethren, and fathers, hearken; The God of glory appeared unto our father Abraham, when he was in Mesopotamia, before he dwelt in Charran.” (KJV).
29.     “This was Stephen's lengthy reply: "The glorious God appeared to our ancestor Abraham in Iraq before he moved to Syria.”  (LB).
30.     The Bible told us where God called him. In Genesis chapter 12, the name of the country was where? Babylon. God called Abraham from Babylon. Babylon was later re-named Mesopotamia. Is that not history? And Mesopotamia was later called Iraq.
31.     So, anybody saying that Babylon vanished from the map of the world, he is blind. It is just like Upper Volta, which has been re-named Burkina Faso. It is just like Benin Republic. Was it Benin Republic before? No.
32.     Too many countries have changed their names. Iraq, that was the country and that is still the country.
33.     Did you get the message?
34.     Now, God told this man Paul who was an ardent Jew, a strong devotee of Moses’ Laws, who not only read it in the university, he had his doctorate degree there. He was teaching it in the synagogue, he was very zealous to do God a service, to the point that he saw Christians as blasphemers, imprisoned and killed them, both men and women and he was there consenting to Stephen’s death.
35.     “This God, now you are commissioning me, how do you think that my fellow Jews will accept me? How do you think they will pay attention to all these things you are telling me? Because if I will tell them not to pay attention to Moses again, it will mean my death. People will not take me serious, thinking that I have been going about forcing the Laws of Moses only to come back again to my own people to tell them that I do not follow Moses. And anybody following Moses will end it in death.”
36.      God said, “No, let that Law never disturb you again. I am sending you away. This message is not for them. This was the message I intended for them seeing that they rejected me, they counted themselves unworthy of everlasting life and then we turn to the Gentiles.”
