THERE HAVE BEEN SO MANY FACETS ADDED OVER THE PAST DECADE, that have added a great range of experiences to what has been known and what has been anticipated in this range of truth. As we talk about this title ’The man of sin,’ this title was given to him by none other than the Apostle Paul.
We always review the writings of the Apostle Paul as an authority, because few men had the experience that the Apostle Paul did to establish that he would be an authority. For he was one of the men whom we have the Biblical record of being transported into the spirit. He could not tell whether he was in the body or out of the body, but he knew that he had gone into the plains of spirit. He knew that he had stood in the presence of the Most High God and he had been in the dimensions of heaven, in the far off corners of space. And he had been sent back and had recorded these things in a book. ‘The Apocalypse of Paul’ became the foundation for the writings of his many Epistles. And it contained more mysteries than any book which has been hidden from the church. The Apostle Paul has left for us in the Epistles that have been preserved, and even though the forces which invaded the church sought to contaminate and obscure areas of what the Apostle Paul was revealing. They have been unable to obscure this man’s vision or the message he delivered to the church.
