THE TRUTH OF THE MYSTERY CAN CHANGE YOU, IF YOU’RE WILLING TO RECEIVE IT AS IT IS IN TRUTH!
By the Inspiration of God,
Apostle Paul Writes To the
Church the Body of Christ:
Romans 16:25-26 (KJV): “Now to him that is of power to stablish you according to my gospel, and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of THE MYSTERY, WHICH WAS KEPT SECRET SINCE THE WORLD BEGAN,
26 But now is made manifest, and by the scriptures of the prophets, according to the commandment of the everlasting God, made known to all nations for the obedience of faith:”
Ephesians 3:1-9 (KJV): “For this cause I Paul, the prisoner of Jesus Christ for you Gentiles,
2 If ye have heard of the dispensation of the grace of God which is given me to you-ward:
3 How that by revelation he made known unto me THE MYSTERY; (as I wrote afore in few words,
4 Whereby, when ye read, ye may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ)
5 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;
6 That the Gentiles should be fellowheirs, and of the same body, and partakers of his promise in Christ BY THE GOSPEL:
7 WHEREOF I WAS MADE A MINISTER, ACCORDING TO THE GIFT OF GRACE OF GOD GIVEN UNTO ME by the effectual working of his power.
8 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;
9 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:”
1 Timothy 2:3-8 (KJV): “FOR THIS IS GOOD AND ACCEPTABLE IN THE SIGHT OF GOD OUR SAVIOUR;
4 Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE TRUTH.
5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;
6 Who gave himself a ransom for all, TO BE TESTIFIED IN DUE TIME.
7 WHEREUNTO I AM ORDAINED a preacher, and an apostle, (I speak the truth in Christ, and lie not;) a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and verity.
8 I will therefore that men pray every where, lifting up holy hands, WITHOUT WRATH AND DOUBTING.”
Philippians 3:17-21 (KJV): “Brethren, BE FOLLOWERS TOGETHER OF ME, and mark them which walk so as ye have us for an ensample.
18 (For MANY WALK, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that THEY ARE THE ENEMIES OF THE CROSS OF CHRIST:
19 Whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, WHO MIND EARTHLY THINGS.)
20 FOR OUR CONVERSATION IS IN HEAVEN; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ:
21 Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself.”
2 Timothy 2:15-16 (KJV): “STUDY to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, RIGHTLY DIVIDING the word of truth.
16 But SHUN profane and vain babblings: for they WILL INCREASE unto more ungodliness.”
1 Timothy 1:1 (KJV): “Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the commandment of God our Saviour, and Lord Jesus Christ, which is our hope;”
1 Timothy 1:11 (KJV): “According to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, WHICH WAS COMMITTED TO MY TRUST.”
1 Timothy 1:16 (KJV): “Howbeit for this cause I obtained mercy, that IN ME FIRST Jesus Christ might shew forth all longsuffering, FOR A PATTERN to them which should HEREAFTER believe on him to life everlasting.”
Colossians 1:23-26 (KJV): “If ye continue in the faith grounded and settled, and be not moved away from the hope of the gospel, which ye have heard, and which was preached to every creature which is under heaven; WHEREOF I PAUL AM MADE A MINISTER;
24 Who now rejoice in my sufferings for you, and fill up that which is behind of the afflictions of Christ in my flesh FOR HIS BODY’S SAKE, WHICH IS THE CHURCH:
25 WHEREOF I AM MADE A MINISTER, ACCORDING TO THE DISPENSATION OF GOD WHICH IS GIVEN TO ME FOR YOU, to fulfil the word of God;
26 EVEN THE MYSTERY WHICH HATH BEEN HID FROM AGES AND FROM GENERATIONS, BUT NOW IS MADE MANIFEST TO HIS SAINTS:”
1 Thessalonians 2:12-13 (KJV): “THAT YE WOULD WALK WORTHY OF GOD, who hath called you unto his kingdom and glory.
13 For this cause also thank we God without ceasing, because, when ye received the word of God WHICH YE HEARD OF US [ i.e. Paul and his followers ], YE RECEIVED IT not as the word of men, but AS IT IS IN TRUTH, the word of God, WHICH EFFECTUALLY WORKETH ALSO IN YOU THAT BELIEVE.”
