    Bro. Ray; It was not the "secret of Paul" or Paul's Gospel! The announced Glad Tidings of Jesus Christ was given in charge to ALL of God's servants: "God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, hath in these last days spoken unto us BY HIS SON..." Paul is not your Saviour, but a minister of the LORD! We must seek God and obey ALL HIS WORDS!
