Galatians 1:15-16:  But when God, who had set me apart even from my mother's womb and called me through His grace, was pleased to reveal His Son in me so that I might preach Him among the Gentiles, I did not immediately consult with flesh and blood, Acts 9:3-19:  As he journeyed he came near Damascus, and suddenly a light from heaven flashed around him, and he fell to the Ground and heard a voice saying to him, "Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me?  And he said, "Who are You, Lord?"  And He said, "I am Jesus whom you are persecuting, but get up and enter the city, and it will be told you what you must do.  The an who traveled with him stood speechless, hearing the voice but seeing no one.  Saul got up from the ground, and though his eyes were open, he could see nothing; and leading him by the hand, they brought him into Damascus.  And he was three days without sight, and neither ate nor drank. Acts 22:6-16:  But it happened that as I was on my way, approaching Damascus about noontime, a very bright light suddenly flashed from heaven all around me, and I fell to the ground and heard a voice saying Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me?  "And I answered, 'Who are you Lord?'  And He said to me, 'I am Jesus the Nazarene, whom you are persecuting.'   And those who were with me saw the light, to be sure, but did not understand the voice of the One who was speaking to me. And I said, ‘What shall I do, Lord?’ And the Lord said to me, ‘Get up and go on into Damascus, and there you will be told of all that has been appointed for you to do.’   But since I could not see because of the brightness of that light, I was led by the hand by those who were with me and came into Damascus.  "A certain Ananias, a man who was devout by the standard of the Law, and well spoken of by all the Jews who lived there, came to me, and standing near said to me, "Brother Saul, receive your sight!'  And at that very time I looked up at him.  And he said, 'The God of our fathers has appointed you to know His will and to see the Righteous One and to hear an utterance from His mouth.  For you will be witness for Him to all men of what you have seen and heard.  Now why do you delay?  Get up and be baptized, and was away your sins, calling on His name.' Acts 26:12-18:  "While so engaged as I was journeying to Damascus with the authority and commission of the chief priests, at midday, O King I saw on the way a light from heaven, brighter than the sun., shining all around me and those who were journeying with me.  "And when we had all fallen to the ground, I heard a voice saying to me in the Hebrew dialect, 'Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me?  It is hard for you to kick against the goads,'  And I said, ‘Who are You, Lord?’ And the Lord said, ‘I am Jesus whom you are persecuting.   But get up and stand on your feet; for this purpose I have appeared to you, to appoint you aminister and a witness not only to the things which you have seen, but also to the things in which I will appear to you; rescuing you from the Jewish people and from the Gentiles, to whom I am sending you, to open their eyes so that they may turn from darkness to light and from the dominion of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among those who have been sanctified by faith in Me.’ 1 Corinthians 9:1:  Am I not free?  Am I not an apostle?  Have I not seen Jesus our Lord?  Are you not my work in the Lord? Galatians 2:9:  and recognizing the grace that had been given to me, James and Cephas and John, who were reputed to be pillars, gave to me and Barnabas the right hand of fellowship, so that we might go to the Gentiles and they be circumcised. Acts 22:21:  "And He said to me, 'Go!  For I will send you far away to the Gentiles.' " Finished for today.  Back tomorrow with more! God Bless!
