Is There A Greater Than Paul Here? (2960)
Prior to coming up to this time of our marriage, in the Book of 2 Corinthians, Chapter 11, Paul had to warn the espoused virgin about the serpent. He says in Verse 3, "But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ." Now watch; Paul was bringing the message that was relevant to what the Spirit of Christ was doing then. He even went as far as to say, "If anyone preaches anything different than what I'm preaching, let him be accursed." (Galatians 1:8-9) Well, that didn't apply to Peter, James, and John, because Paul was talking about those in the realm of the virgin that he was sent to in order to espouse a bride to Christ. God lifted Paul up and used him to be the voice for that purpose. Christ was vindicating, "I've sent this man. You listen to what he has to say; and if you do, I will bless you." But Paul didn't point them to himself by saying, "Look what I can do!" No, he always gave all the glory to God. Yes, sometimes God uses us to be a voice. And He puts some stature (puts teeth) behind that voice; and it's recognized that this is Christ. This is God's way of making the Christ anointing great.
