The Twofold Purpose of The Mystery - Part 1

The Twofold Purpose of The Mystery - Part 1. The lesson on August 27, 2006 begins a series on the twofold purpose of The Mystery. This study will show you that there is a great need for you to understand scripture. The ignorance of scripture has to be removed in order to have a proper relationship with God. The problem with churches now a days is they focus on the ignorance within you by providing varying groups that focuses on the problem instead of replacing the focus on Christ. Those are called Seeker classes or churches. The problem with Seeker classes is that you’ve replaced theology...

The Twofold Purpose of The Mystery - Part 2

The Twofold Purpose of The Mystery - Part 2. The lesson addresses the question “what am I supposed to do?”. The calling of The Mystery is addressed to the gentiles for the sake of Christ and the focus for Christians should be on what they need to do in this calling. When we begin to look at what God has called us to do, we need to focus on obedience to the dispensational differences in The Mystery. Ephesians 4:1 says to walk worthy in your spiritual calling. There’s no wonder that Paul prays for us in Ephesians 3:18, and 19 to understand the four dimensions of the love and knowledge of...

The Twofold Purpose of The Mystery - Part 3

The Twofold Purpose of The Mystery - Part 3. The lesson last time discussed our need to be obedient to our calling. That’s why in Ephesians 4:1 (KJV) says “I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord , beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called,” . This reference has impact on your behavior in the world today. Noah was an example of someone who had that obedience in his walk and he demonstrated it by completing his task given to him by God. Therefore, the first thing you need to do is figure out if this body of truth called The Mystery is your calling. We find the...

The Twofold Purpose of The Mystery - Part 4

The Twofold Purpose of The Mystery - Part 4. The body of truth called “The Mystery” is really our great commission for the believers of this age. Much like the commission given to the disciples in Matthew 28:19-20, our commission is given in Ephesians 3:9. This is what God has given us with this particular fellowship which is part of a particular administration. Christ Jesus is the fullness of God and we a made a part of His calling in Christ. The Jew has nothing today that makes him distinctive in God’s eyes. There are two things that make this truth distinctively to you (2U). First of...

The Twofold Purpose of The Mystery - Part 5

The Twofold Purpose of The Mystery - Part 5. There are two aspects of this study of the twofold purpose of The Mystery, that which you do and that which God does. We are to compare the things that differ which is a primary function of right division. Ephesians 3:10 talks of God’s intent, which will always be accomplished and we see it will be accomplished in your life, as the song says “God will take care of you”. The Christian’s greatest need is to know that from God’s perspective. This lesson looks at prayer and study which helps you determine what you are supposed to do in this calling...

The Twofold Purpose of The Mystery - Part 6

The Twofold Purpose of The Mystery - Part 6. Our calling is so specific but when you share it with other Christians, they tend to deny what has been revealed to us. The lesson on October 15, 2006 teaches on the fact that God reveals some things to us, and He also doesn’t reveal things to us . There are some things that God’s revealed to us in specific times yet there are other things that won’t be revealed until the Revelation. Edwin Hubble started a mission to place a telescope in space on a satellite. This effort to see our space better and to find out are place in the universe, is just...

The Twofold Purpose of The Mystery - Part 7

The Twofold Purpose of The Mystery - Part 7. From the beginning of time, God had hidden the Mystery in Himself. God is outside of time but since He is the creator of all things, He hid this body of truth before creation of the Earth and before the beginning of the ages. Colossians 1:15-16 (KJV) tells us that Christ “Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by Him, and...

The Twofold Purpose of The Mystery - Part 8

The Twofold Purpose of The Mystery - Part 8. God does ultimately get the glory for everything He has created. There will even be a time when Christ turns everything over to the Godhead. So many times we are caught up in where we are and what we are doing but it is just a drop in the bucket compared to eternity. We all have our problems but God is there to be with us so we don’t face them alone and He is there for us until the end. You may faint but God will never fail. In the study of scripture we see the eternity of God. For the lesson on October 29, 2006, it picks up with the 8th lesson...

The Twofold Purpose of The Mystery - Part 9

The Twofold Purpose of The Mystery - Part 9. What was the twofold purpose that God revealed the Mystery? The first reason was to reveal it to mankind as it says in Ephesians 3:9 (KJV) “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:”. The second purpose was to show God’s wisdom to the Principalities and Powers as it continues to say in verse 10 “To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God...

This is the final lesson in the series given on November 12, 2006 pertaining to the twofold purpose of The Mystery as identified in Ephesians 3:9, and Colossians 1:25-26. The Mystery is the specific truth given to the Christian today to follow with faith obedience.

There are two responsibilities that the group of believers have, the first being responsible for making other Christians see this...
