TOPIC: "The Appearing"

Question: What "appearing" is Paul referring to in II Timothy 4:8?

Thought: II Timothy 1 : 9-11-----The "by the appearing of our Saviour "

in II Timothy 1:10, would have to be in reference to II Timothy 1 : 11,

the appearing to the Apostle Paul. Why?

Reference: All verses are fiom the King James Bible which we

believe to be the inspired Word of God.

I. Acts 26:16-18

A. The fist appearing to Paul

Acts 9:l-5" I am Jesus", this proves Romans 1:4, Christ is the

Son of God, why? Resurrection

2. II Timothy 4:8 Love His Appearing

How does one show this love?

E. Philippians 3:17 Followers "together" of Paul

Ephesians 5:18 Be filled with the Spirit

The appearing of Christ to the Apostle Paul on the road to Damascus

was the revelation of the Mystery of the Gospel of Christ which is our

salvation. .

Paul was the Apostle that God gave to all men to hear of our salvation

so we could trust the Gospel and be sealed.
