"The Mystery of His will" Compiled by; B. Keith Chadwell, 2013
Ephesians 1:9 Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself:
Ephesians 1: 16-22 Wherefore I also, after I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus, and love unto all the saints, Cease not to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers; That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him: The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints, And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power, Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places, Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come: And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church, Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all.
Mark_4:11 And he said unto them, Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, all these things are done in parables:
Rom_16:25 Now to him that is of power to stablish you according to my gospel, and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery, which was kept secret since the world began,
Eph_3:9 And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ:
Col_1:26-27 Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints: To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:
The Mystery of all ages has been revealed: It is; "Christ in us...the hope of glory".
"The Hope of Glory"; Father God has been glorified in Jesus and He has purposed to be glorified, in like manner, in His people, in the earth, once again.
John 12:28 Father, glorify thy name. Then came there a voice from heaven, saying, I have both glorified it, and will glorify it again.
Mat 5:16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and
glorify your Father which is in heaven.
John 17:10-11 (CEV) All that I have is yours, and all that you have is mine, and they
will bring glory to me. Holy Father, I am no longer in the world. I am coming to you,
but my followers are still in the world. So keep them safe by the power of the name
that you have given me. Then they will be one with each other, just as you and I are
Collosians 1:28 & 29(CEV);"We announce the message about Christ, and we use all our wisdom to warn and teach everyone, so that all of Christ's followers will grow and become mature. That's why I work so hard and use the mighty power he gives me.
Ephesians 2:7 That in the ages to come (forever more) he might shew the exceeding
riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.
2:21 In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord:2:22 In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.
Ephesians 4:11-16(CEV) "Christ chose some of us to be apostles, prophets,
missionaries, pastors, and teachers, so that his people would learn to serve and hisbody would grow strong. This will continue until we are united by our faith and by
our understanding of the Son of God. Then we will be mature, just as Christ is,
and we will be completely like him. we must stop acting like children. We must not let deceitful people trick us by their false teachings, which are like winds that toss us around from place to place. Love should always make us tell the truth. Then we will grow in every way and be more like Christ, the head of the body. Christ holds it together and makes all of its parts work perfectly, as it grows and becomes strong because of love."
