THE APOSTLE PAUL – LESSON 5

SAUL, THE FUGITIVE

 

We do not know the date of Saul’s conversion to Christ, but we can make an educated guess. Using the more historically accurate date of Jesus death, resurrection, and ascension of about 29 A.D. or 30 A.D. (shunning Ussher’s miscalculation of 33 A.D.) we would place the stoning of Stephen, attended by Saul, at about 30 or 31 A.D. Then Saul began persecuting the Followers of The Way around a period of about 32-35 A.D. It would appear that his Damascus Road encounter with Jesus may have been around 35 A.D.

 

Saul spent the next three years in preparation. His time in the Arabian wilderness was a period of Holy Spirit preparation, then he returned to Damascus and began preaching the gospel to the Jews who lived there. Some had been previously converted, but many resisted the gospel of Jesus Christ. Soon that resistance became so intense that the traditional Jews determined to kill this heretic called Saul (Paul) of Tarsus. They watched the city gates day and night hoping to capture and kill him. Saul was a fugitive for Christ’s sake.

 

The believers knew that Saul needed an escape. After the city gates were closed one night, they put Saul in a large basket and let him down by ropes over the wall outside the city and into safety.

 

Saul (as Paul was still being called) then went to Jerusalem to meet with the head of the church, the Apostle Peter. (Paul was the Roman form of Saul.) He was not well received. All the believers were still afraid of him, not believing he was truly converted. They suspected it was just a ruse to discover them and arrest them.

 

One man believed him; Barnabas, who being a highly respected disciple, brought Saul to the Apostles and gave a full account of Saul’s conversion (Acts 9:26-27). This gained his acceptance. Saul then was given liberty to proclaim Jesus throughout Jerusalem. This once again brought him trouble as we see in verse 29.

 

Saul disputed (argued) with the “Grecians,” better known as Hellenist (Greek cultured) Jews. They were pagan proselytes converted to Judaism and not raised in the orthodox Jewish religion. We do not know the exact nature of the issues, but it was a severe enough difference that they also sought to kill him. Now he must flee as a fugitive from Jerusalem also.

 

The brethren escorted Saul out of Jerusalem into Caesarea. From there they sent Saul home to Tarsus, probably about 38 A.D. He remained seven years in his home of Tarsus most likely preaching the gospel around that region. This period of time seemed to be helpful in his maturity as a minister of the gospel.

 

His expansion of ministry was now about to happen, as we shall see tomorrow.

STEP INTO THE WATER

 

The Hebrew children had left Egypt and were travelling to the Promised Land. They came to the Red Sea. With six million people needing to cross this sea there was a problem. How would they get to their destination? To make matters worse, the enemy was closing in on them from behind. What would they do now?

 

You see, they were looking at their situation as being an impossibility. They could only see the problems. They in their own minds felt they were trapped between “a rock and a hard place.” They didn’t know that God already had a plan before they even got to the Red Sea. In order for the plan to work though, there had to be an act of faith. Someone had to “step into the water” and show God that they trusted Him. Of course, Moses did that, and the waters parted. They went across into the wilderness on dry land. Meanwhile the God caused their enemy to be defeated by being drowned in the Sea. The very Sea that brought them deliverance destroyed their enemies.

 

Many times, we are faced with impossible situations where it looks like there is no way out. Doors have been shut and no door has opened. This is when we must trust that God has a plan and listen to Him for the next step. Often it takes great faith to move out of a situation with no money or any way to go forward, but when God says move, we must move. The provision for the children of Jacob only came when Moses stepped into the water. 

 

What is it that God is asking you to do? Do you trust Him enough to take you to the next stage of your life? When you determine to go forward no matter the cost, God will make a way for you just like he did the Hebrew children. So, step into the water!

PROPHETIC EXHORTATION

 

The scriptures tell us that death and life are in the power of the tongue and that we eat the fruit there. Our words are so powerful that they either bring us life or death. What have you been eating lately? Do you have spiritual indigestion? If so, then repent and ask God to help you guard your mouth

Remember, what God called you, gifted you and anointed you to DO is FOR you...And whatever storms you are right now walking through is proof positive of that fact. So you continue to stand in faith...Hold your head up high, keep your eyes off the storms and get your shouting shoes on; Because your promised land is just in sight.
