God had a secret, a mystery -- something hidden that no one understood!
I Corinthians 2:1-9
Had the rulers of this world understood the wisdom of God, hidden in the mystery, they would not have crucified Jesus Christ!
This mystery of God can be found in the scriptures of the prophets. And although they prophesied and wrote it down in scripture, no one understood. How can this be?
Merriam Webster definition of a mystery: something not understood or beyond understanding.
It was written down. But no one understood. The devil did not understand. The rulers of this world and the religious leaders did not understand. Even Jesus? closest disciples did not understand the hidden truth. Luke 9:43-45; 18:31-34; Acts 13:26-30.
The Mystery has now been made known.
Ephesians 1:3-10; 3:1-11
This mystery of God contains God?s eternal purpose -- or ?purpose of the ages.?
Colossians 1:25-29 -- The riches of the glory of this mystery -- ?Christ in you the hope of glory!?
Colossians 2:1-3 - All the treasures of wisdom and knowledge are hidden in this mystery.
They mystery of God is not yet complete. God still has hidden understanding of his plan.
I Corinthians 15:50-52
Revelation 10:5-7 In the days when the seventh angel sounds the trumpet, then the mystery of God is finished.
Ephesians 1:15-23 Pray for wisdom and understanding.
