Ephesians 3:5; 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;
What’s the big deal?
The mystery is a really big deal. The mystery is what made us God’s son’s and daughters on the day of Pentecost. And the reason Paul calls it the mystery is defined in Ephesians 3:5. God hid the knowledge of it from everyone. And 2 Cor. 2:7-12, tells us why.
2 Cor. 2:7-12; But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, [even] the hidden [wisdom], which God ordained before the world unto our glory,
8: Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known [it], they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. (This is why God hid his plan)
9: But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him,
10: But God hath revealed [them] unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.
11: For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? (The Great Principle) even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God,
12: Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.
IF the Devil would’ve known God’s plan to give power to his children, he would have never crucified Jesus Christ. God loves you and has given you the upper hand. You’re his kid with power. That is the big deal.
