FELLOWSHIP OF THE MYSTERY
"And to make all people see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the ages has been hidden in God who created all things through Jesus Christ" (Eph. 3:9).
What is the mystery
that Paul discusses? Paul discusses the unfolding of the eternal plan
of God. This plan was born in the very heart of God in the beginning
of beginnings. Our Heavenly Father wanted to have sons for a relationship
and a love fellowship. In order to
eternally accomplish that result, God would have to live in them with
eternal Spirit and
nature so that they could relate to Him, understand Him,
and have fellowship with Him. Man in his natural senses cannot see, hear,
and know God (I Cor. 2:9,12). God has to reveal Himself to man by the
Spirit in a Spirit renewed mind (I Cor. 2:10,13; Eph. 4:23).
The mystery has to be
revealed by the Holy Spirit to man.
Revelation comes from the Greek
word apokalupsis. The prefix apo means forth from, and
kalupto which means to envelop, wrap around as bark, skin, shell
or plaster, to cover over, by implication to hide or conceal. So
revelation means the removing forth from
the veil. Revelation is an
uncovering, unveiling, or laying bare – a disclosure of all facts of Divine
truth. Revelation is the means
that God uses to uncover and show us the mystery.
At the Spirit
birthing, we are put
Christ is put
in us. The heart and glory of
the mystery is that we are in
Christ is in
