And IRRELEVANCY again , and feel that I am so misunderstood and being a dispensationalist , I do believe in WATER BAPTISM , just that is not for NOW , but that Water Baptism will come back during the GREAT TRIBULATION , Mark 16:15-20 and have yet to see it happen .
But in Acts 9:6 Paul says , LORD what do you wish me to do ?
When Saul/Paul said LORD / Kurios what do you wish me to do , Saul is acknowleging that Jesus is his MASTER .
Then Rom 10:9 says , That if you should confess with your mouth , the LORD JESUS , and should believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead , you will be saved .
Then in 1 Cor 12:3 reads , Therefore I make known to you that no one speaking by God's SPIRIT says Jesus is accursed , and NO ONE is ABLE to SAY Lord Jesus EXCEPT BY THE HOLY SPIRIT .
So Saul / Paul was SAVED in Acts 9:6 .
And here is what 1 Tim 1:16 says , But for this reason I was given mercy , in order that in me ( in Greek the word ME is EMPHATIC ) FIRST / PROTOS , Christ Jesus might show forth all longsuffering for PATTERN , OF THE ONES COMING to Believe on Him unto EVERLASTING LIFE >
This means that Paul is the PATTERN to SALVATION >
