The eyes of your understanding will be opened when you listen to the LORD Jesus Christ who is in you. Paul wrote "But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached of me is not after man. For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ."
In Ephesians 1: 4 it is written that we were chosen and elected before the chaos of Genesis 1: 2, Before Adam, we were members of the body of Christ. He's our head, our guiding light and unerring compass. Our axiom is clear: “For me to live is Christ” – Phil 1: 21.
Paul dwelt two whole years in his own hired house, and received all that came in unto him, preaching the kingdom of God, and teaching those things which concern the Lord Jesus Christ, with all confidence, no man forbidding him. Acts 28:30, 31
