Knowledge Lesson for July 13, 2013
Now to Him who is able to establish you according to my gospel and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery kept secret since the world began but now made manifest, and by the prophetic Scriptures made known to all nations, according to the commandment of the everlasting God, for obedience to the faith NKJV
In Rom 16:26, however, it goes on to say that the mysteries have been revealed by the prophetic scriptures, to all nations, for obedience to the faith. Scripture is clearly saying that we are to see what God is really saying so that we can be obedient to it. We are to see the revelation, the mystery, and then obey it.
So what does the mystery revealed bring? Obedience. It removes the veils so that we can get understanding of what God requires and start to walk in it. It brings us into purity and right relationship with Him, which we will never get by sacrificing our children every year to the pagan gods of materialism and obesity.
How that by revelation he made known unto me the mystery; (as I wrote a fore 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; KJV
Ephesians 3:4-5, Paul tells the Ephesians that he wants them to understand his knowledge of the mystery of Christ. The word ‘Christ’ means the anointed. So Paul is saying that there is a mystery, a secret way, in which God talks to the anointed ones; the righteous ones. And this secret way is in symbolism's and mysteries. By reading these knowledge lessons we are learning these symbolism's and mysteries.
Anyone who really gets a hold of the Glory Knowledge and runs with it, their lives change for ever. The revelations of God are backed by the power of God. And it’s not based on a natural faith that struggles to hold on, it’s based on the revelation of God’s creative Word made manifest in their lives.
