OUR GOD IS NOT A MYSTERIOUS GOD
“Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints…. Colossians 1:26”.
First of all, I will like to explain the term mysterious. Mysterious means strange, difficult to understand or explain. And our God is not that kind of Person.
The problem with people is that they do not know what it means to understand God’s Will. God has showed us His will by giving us His word. From the Word of God, we see what He did, what He is doing, and what He is going to do, so we can understand Him easily. A lot of people are so quick to pick up one verse of the old testament and act on it. In Isaiah 33:8-9, God said “For my thought are not your thought, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. But Jesus said in Mark 14:24, “This is my blood of the new testament which is shed for many” and in Hebrews 8:13 the bible says, “In that he saith, A new covenant, he hath made the first old. Now that which decayeth and waxeth old is ready to vanish away”.
The people of the old testament where living under the old covenant and then true, God will was not made known to them. But Jesus came in the new testament and bought us into a new covenant thereby solving the mystery. You should never compare the old testament folks with the new testaments folks. We are now working under Grace through faith in Christ Jesus. Jesus Himself said that it is given unto us to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven (Matthew 13:11).
Just take a close look at the opening scripture which says “Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his Saints”. What does that tell you? The Mysteries of the kingdom of God had been revealed to you and Christ in you is the hope of glory. Praise God!
The God of our Father has chosen me to know his will. Therefore, I walk in the divine knowledge of God’s will everyday of my life, knowing that the mysteries of the kingdom of God had been giving to me and Christ in me is the hope of glory. Halleluyah!
