Romans to Philemon

The epistles of Paul ,
the "apostle of the Gentiles."

To Paul God revealed that He was holding back His day of wrath, that He was temporarily suspending His program with Israel, and that He was bringing in a new and unprophesied dispensation. To Paul God revealed the "mystery of Christ"; the secret purpose that He has in Christ which He kept "hid in Himself" and "kept secret since the world began." In Paul's epistles God sets forth His program for and about us today , the members of God's "new creation," the "one new man," the church the body of Christ. God's purpose with His "new creation" pertains to the reconciliation of the heavenly places.
