Fellowship of The Mystery

Fellowship of The Mystery

The message given on April 25, 2021 was a follow up to the presentation Wayne gave at the Truth for Today webinar that was held on Saturday, April 24, 2021. Wayne's topic was "The Fellowship of The Mystery" and we were able to receive it at Northside Bible on Sunday. Wayne started out by saying their were elephants in the room when he pointed out that those with modern Bibles won't have the word "fellowship" in Ephesians 3:9 but rather "dispensation". Wayne expressed that he needs to provide a study as to why the King James is the correct interpretation to use. Wayne provided a slide that showed the Acts period epistles of Paul and the posts Acts epistles of PAul (using periodic table symbol for the element gold in PAul the prisoners name. Gold is element 79 and its symbol is Au.) We then looked at examples in Romans (that last epistle Paul wrote during Acts) and saw the Acts period context. One example was provided on the handling of "baptisms and gifts" in Acts compared to the post Acts epistle of 2Timothy. The scripture reading was from Ephesians 3:1-9 KJV

"1 For this cause I Paul, the prisoner of Jesus Christ for you Gentiles, 2 If ye have heard of the dispensation of the grace of God which is given me to youward: 3 How that by revelation he made known unto me the mystery; (as I wrote afore in few words, 4 Whereby, when ye read, ye may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ) 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; 6 That the Gentiles should be fellowheirs, and of the same body, and partakers of his promise in Christ by the gospel: 7 Whereof I was made a minister, according to the gift of the grace of God given unto me by the effectual working of his power. 8 Unto me, who am less than the least of all saints, is this grace given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ; 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:"
