I Am A Steward of the Mysteries of God
(1Co4:1-2; Col1:25-27)

God is the God of revelation.
He holds mystery hidden for ages (Col1:25) and
Following the dispensation of that mystery
Makes known the revelation of the mystery (Rm16:26; Eph3:9).

Faith is by revelation knowing the mystery of God (Eph1:9, 3:3) and
The life of this faith is for the One who judged me faithful and appointed me to His service
revealing the mystery of the gospel (1Ti1:12, 6:19).

The more important a plan is for an individual, a society or a nation
The more important it is to reveal it only to a trustworthy person.
In reality, however, eternal secret does not exist in the world.

The Bible illustrates the revelation of God’s mystery which was
Determined in the beginning to be disclosed (Rm16:25) for
Nothing is hidden except to be made manifest,
Nor is anything secret except to come to light (Mk4:22).

Following the dispensation of the mystery
The revelation of the mystery was made known (Rm12:26; Eph3:9):
The creation, the Garden of Eden, Adam, Abraham, Israel, the Prophets and the Temple
All made a pathway for the mystery (Ps27:5; Am3:7; Eph3:9).

Yeshua said, “Destroy this temple and I will raise it again in three days” (Jn2:19), because
Through the death and the resurrection of the temple of His body,
He would in the name of not Jehovah but the Father’s name Yeshua (Jn17:11-12)
Proclaim not following Abraham’s flesh and blood but to the souls of all nations (Mt10:27) for
His word is the word of the Father who sent Him (Jn14:24) and
The Word who spoke in the bosom of the Father from the beginning (Is48:16; Jn1:1-2, 18).

To the disciples the secrets of the kingdom of heaven were given to be known (Mt13:10-11)
While to the others they were not thus He spoke in parables (Ps78:2; Mt13:33-34).

As He died, He said, “It is finished” (Jn19:30), declaring that He:
1) Tore the temple veil and the mystery hidden inside the temple was now revealed to the world (Col1:26);
2) Judged the devil the origin of sin (1Jn3:8); and
3) Completed the secret strategy of saving mankind (Eph1:7).

He rose and sat on the heavenly throne and
The Holy Spirit comes to the souls of believers and
Lets it be known that, “the mystery of God = Yeshua” (Col1:27).

The Christian is he who
Knows the mystery of His plan for the fullness of time and
The Lord’s immanent return (Mt24:3; Eph1:9) and
The mystery of the church, the hiding place for souls in the last days (Eph5:30; He10:25) and so
Becomes a faithful servant put in charge of the mystery of God (1Ti3:9).
Therefore, with the pride and the duty of him who knows the mystery of the gospel
He risks his life in becoming a witness of Christ (Col4:3) for
He knows that, as in the Old Testament there were distinctions of knowing God’s mystery
From the Hebrews to the descendants of Jacob to the Levites (to the courtyard of the tabernacle),
The priests (to the Holy Place), and the high priest (to the Most Holy Place),
The distinctions of revealing the mystery of godliness are different to this day (1Ti3:15-16).

O Lord,
Who am I that
You trusted me and
Made known the secrets of God?
As someone who now knows the mystery of revelation
I cannot stay silent.
Wherever I go let me shout out loud the mystery of the gospel! Amen.
