What is the mystery???🤔🤔🤔
When scriptures are interpreted in light of present day circumstances rather than in their original intent then biblically fallacious applications or bad doctrine, often arise.
This is not to say that scriptures do not have modern day applications but rather we ought not to force the applications from anything other than what was originally intended.
Case in point, the mystery that Jesus revealed... once one understands what exactly that was then much of scriptures become much better understood and the application therefore becomes more apparent and for many, such as myself for years, they would discover that their prior application of certain scriptures was done so entirely out of context.
The fellowship of the mystery has always been the will of the almighty Creator, our Father in heaven, who has purposed from the beginning to bring all men who would repent and turn to Him through the blood of His Son Jesus Christ.
So it should not be a mystery to the either the genetic seed of Abraham nor the gentile (Greek, not a descendant of Abraham, etc...) who were previously separated but are now reconciled back to the Father together in Christ.
For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of 🤔this mystery👈👈👈, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until 🤔the fulness of the Gentiles be come in👈👈👈. Romans 11:25
Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought: But we speak the wisdom of God in 🤔a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory👈👈👈: Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, 🤔the things which God hath prepared for them that love him👈👈👈. But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God. 1 Corinthians 2:6-10
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ: According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love: Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will, To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved. In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace; Wherein he hath abounded toward us in all wisdom and prudence; Having made known unto us 🤔the mystery of his will👈👈👈, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself: That in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might 🤔gather together in one all things in Christ👈👈👈, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him: In whom 🤔also we have obtained an inheritance👈👈👈, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will: That we should be to the praise of his glory, who first trusted in Christ. In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise, Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory. Ephesians 1:3-14
If ye have heard of the dispensation of the grace of God which is given me to you-ward: How that by revelation he 🤔🤔🤔made known unto me the mystery👈👈👈; (as I wrote afore in few words, Whereby, when ye read, 🤔ye may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ👈👈👈) Which in other ages was not made known unto the sons of men, as it is now revealed unto his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit; 🤔🤔🤔🤔That the Gentiles should be fellowheirs👈👈👈,🤔🤔🤔 and of the same body👈👈👈, and 🤔🤔🤔partakers of his promise in Christ by the gospel👈👈👈: Whereof I was made a minister, according to the gift of the grace of God given unto me by the effectual working of his power. Unto me, who am less than the least of all saints, is this grace given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ; And to 🤔make all men see 👈👈👈 what is 🤔🤔🤔the fellowship of the mystery👈👈👈, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ: To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God, According to the eternal purpose which 🤔🤔🤔he purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord👈👈👈: In whom we have boldness and access with confidence by the faith of him. Ephesians 3:2-12
DON'T MISS THE OVERARCHING CONTEXT OF IT ALL!!!!
🤔🤔🤔THIS IS A GREAT MYSTERY: BUT I SPEAK CONCERNING CHRIST AND THE CHURCH👈👈👈. Ephesians 5:32
Once we get the context clear then we can understand what this mystery is. I t really is quite clear and simple.
This core concept is a unifying theme throughout Paul's Epistles as well as the entirety of scriptures.
And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel, Ephesians 6:19
Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints: To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory: Whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus: Colossians 1:26-28
For I would that ye knew what great conflict I have for you, and for them at Laodicea, and for as many as have not seen my face in the flesh; That their hearts might be comforted, being knit together in love, and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the acknowledgement of the mystery of God, and of the Father, and of Christ; In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. Colossians 2:1-3
For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. Romans 1:16
For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. Romans 10:12
But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God. 1 Corinthians 1:24
Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ. Galatians 3:16
For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise. Galatians 3:27-29
Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all. Colossians 3:11
