Scripture Reading: Ephesians 1:8-12

"Having made known unto us the mystery [secret] of His  will..." This is how the riches of God's grace hath abounded  toward us in all wisdom and prudence! Mark well that it is to  the praise of His grace we have the adoption in verse 5; we  have been graced into the Beloved One in verse 6; we have  redemption through His blood ... the forgiveness of sins  through the riches of His grace in verse 7; and it is in grace He  has abounded toward us by making known the mystery of His  will in verses 8 and 9. No wonder this is called the  dispensation of grace!

The divine enlightenment of the mystery of His will,  however, concerns the dispensation of the fullness of times  which, of course, is based upon His grace but of which the  present mystery (secret) of the Body of Christ is but a part!

Contained in the preaching of Jesus Christ according to  the revelation of the mystery (Ephesians 3:1-6) is the fullness  of revelation and the truth as to how all of God's purposes will  be fulfilled-whether the dispensation of the kingdom or the  dispensation of grace or the grand union of all the family of  God after the establishment of the new heavens and the new  earth in the dispensation of the fullness of times!

And how has God made known these truths to which He  has enlightened us? Solely through the man who was called in  light above the brightness of the sun, at a place where the  chosen people [Israel] were set aside, where the chief of  sinners was aborted from his destructive course (I Corinthians  15:8), by him who declared "that by revelation He [Jesus  Christ] made known unto me the mystery" -yea, the Apostle  of the Gentiles ... Paul!


How God Saves Men
Believing Christ DIED, that’s HISTORY.
Believing Christ DIED for YOU SINS and Rose again that’s SALVATION.
Read Romans 1:16, Romans 10:9-10 and 1. Corinthians 15:1-4
