Mystery Revealed

The Apostle Paul speaks of the mystery of God's plan for the Church in Chapter 3 of the Book of Ephesians.  What had been veiled previously in the Old Testament is now made known.  God intends for His Church to be made up of Jews and Gentiles alike.  Ephesians 3:6 delineates this truth, "That Gentiles should be fellow heirs, and of the same body, and partakers of His promise in Christ by the gospel."  What could not be understood in the ages past is now revealed in the person and work of Jesus Christ.  Ephesians 3:9 reveals, "And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid by God, who created all things by Jesus Christ."  Now even Satan and his minions are privy to God's plan, Ephesians 3:10 speaks,, "To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God."  God's eternal purpose has come to fruition in the person of Jesus Christ.  Ephesians 3:11 tells us, "According to the eternal purpose which He purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord."  A mystery must be revealed to be understood, Paul speaks of this revelation in Ephesians 3:3, "How that by revelation He made known the mystery. . . "  God's Divine eternal plan for the Church is the unification of all men, this is illuminated by the cross of Christ, and the price of its realization is paid by His Blood.
